Still waiting (impatiently) for word from my publisher about when the book will be ready for Amazon. But I thought I would give you, my faithful readers, another little excerpt today. In this scene, Randy has told Susan how he would like for her to dispose of his body should anything happen to him. That is a frightening thought for Suasn who has already lost so much during the cataclysm and spent so many days alone before finding him.

"Oh, Susan, neither one of us is going anywhere until we have completed our purpose," Randy continued, "you can bet on that!" He got a serious look on his face as he stared into te flames. "But, to tell you the truth, going back to the spiritual side has never worried me. It was always being left here alone that was the most distressing thought to me. When my wife and children died, I wished I could die, too. I felt like I had been cheated, not becasue they had died, but because I didn't get to go with them." He took a deep breath and them looked up at me and smiled. "But now I know I was left behind because I still have some work to do and important work it is!" he said coming over to me.
He took my hands and pulled me to my feet. "We have a mission. We've got to help this world get started on the right path," he said emphatically, and he pulled me close to him. "And I'm not alone, Susan, and neither are you," he said, and putting his finger under my chin, he tilted my face up to his and kissed me tendrely on the lips.
My mind rushed in with thoughts about not having known this man very long and how improper it was for a newly-widowed woman to care for someone new this soon, but those thoughts were cut off like old rags and dissapated in the feelings of acceptance that filled my every fiber at that moment. Being in his arms, our auras blending, I felt the vibrations of a perfect 'togetherness' ring through me like a vibrating chord of scintillating harmony. This was right! And, I kissed him back.

Good Mornign Friends,

I will add another excerpt from "Sunrise, Day One!" this morning. I want to mention to those who are reading this blog for the first time, that the book excerpts begin with my June 4th entry. So, to read them in sequence, strat with 6/4's entries.

With each new survivor that Susan and Randy encounter, a new spiritual entity also reveals itself. In this excerpt, they have met a young man who is a classical guitarist named Philip. In this scene, Philip's wife is talking with her spirit guide, as the others observe.

"There is another who would enter," interrupted Stephen, and with that, we all turned our attention back to him. "With your permission, Philip's guide would come in." We all nodded in aggrement. He pointed to the left of himself, and we watched as the magnificent being that I had glimpsed in my mind, began to appear. She was exceedingly brilliant, all white with golden rays radiating out from her, an absolutely breathtaking sight!
"I am Claire," she announced, "come from the Ninth Order and servent of the Thirty-fourth Hall. The sound of her voice was like nothing I'd ever heard. It had a quality of musical notes when she spoke. In some ways, it sounded almost like several voces speaking in unison. She moved forward effortlessly and stopped in front of Philip. "We are the Keepers of Sound," she continued. "We have come to assist you in the control of vibration, rhythm and the manipulation of tone, what you call music."
Philip nodded an acknowledgment to Claire. The rest of us just sat there, speechless.

Claire tells Philip that she is "the guide of your purpose," and that, as his physical, emotional and spiritual understanding matured, she would be instructing him in his musical development. After she disappears into the night, Stephen explains about Claire.

"Claire is from a different order. She is an angel," he explained.
"Stephen, I don't quite understand," I began. "I know you told us about the ascended masters, but how does Claire and the angels fit into the picture?"
"Susan, there are many, many types of higher beings, all with levels and ranks, one above the other. It is a never-ending ladder of successions, all with different interest and duties, and all in the service of the one almighty God. This universe is run by millions of life forms, all with specific purposes. Claire is one of those whose special interest is the production of music. It is a great honor for Philip to have been chosen by them to learn even a tiny part of what they know about music."
"Hmm, I seee I have much to learn,'" I commented.
Until next time....

Here's a few more quotes from spiritual guide, Stephen.

You are aliving, breathing projection of a God-thought wrapped in physical matter.

Put your will into motion. "Will" is a God-power and was given to all humanity. Nothing is created [by a human] until one puts his or her will to it.

The weather doesn't know if it should rain or shine today! We've had both several times already and it's only 9:00 in the morning! My husband's gone to play golf! Hope he doesn't get too wet! I'm trying to catch up on my blog and Twitter after being gone several days on a lovely trip to Northen Indiana where we visited with family. We enjoyed watching our baby granddughter open her presents for her first birthday! She loves books! She loved the pink teddy bear I got her, too. You should have seen the look on her face when all of the family started singing "Happy Birthday" to her. She wasn't sure what was happening! (Maybe we didn't sound that good! Ha)!

Today I have finished and resubmitted my updates for the book. I thought that I would leave you with a couple of short excerpts from the wisdom of spiritual guide Stephen, one of the book's leading characters.

With your mind you form thoughts. With your feelings you clothe those thoughts, and they become things of substance. With your will you propel them into your world.

All life is coontinuous, just the form is changed. It flows like a river, mearely changing the scenery as it goes along.

Sunday, June 7

It's Sunday and time for me to add another excerpt from the book. In the following, Randy and Susan have just learned that hearing each other's thoughts has not been by accident, that telepathy is one of the new gifts that they and all survivors have gained from the new dimension. Randy asks how it works, and Stephen answers.

"Well, it will work somewhat like it does for us. When someone is thinking of you, their thoughts will automatically attract your thoughts or attention. It will be like they are speaking to you, even though it is often that they are thinking 'about' you and not
'to' you. On the other hand, if you direct your attention toward another and tune your thought pattern to theirs, you may overhear what they are thinking, no matter what it is about. That takes some practice, though. You have to know what it feels like to hear another telepathically before you can learn to tune in on them. Very few learn it spontanously. But you two will develop this ability as soon as you quit denying that it is there. Now, shall we move on?"
Randy raised his hand. "I have one more question: can you guard your thoughts so that not just everybody can tune in on them? That might be dangerous in some cases!"
"Randy, the best defense against having secret thoughts read is to not have any thoughts in your mind that you would object to someone else hearing," Stephen advised.
Randy got a funny experssion on his face and scracted his head. I was reeling a bit from Stephen's last statement myself! Telepathy was going to take some getting used to!
"Boy," I said, "talk about learning to think pure thoughts!"

Randy and Susan's ability to hear each other's thoughts does get stronger and is sometimes embarrassing for them. It comes in handy, though, when they encounter more survivors less skilled than themselves.

One survivor that they encounter is Sara, the daughter of a mountain man for Arkansas, and Sara is exceptional! Here's an excerpt for their first meeting.

I'm not really sure how long we meditated that morning, but before I opened my eyes, I felt a presence. I thought to Randy, "Someone's here!" And, we both opened our eyes. There, in front of us sitting cross-legged was Jacob and a little girl about five or six years old.
" Mornin' folks," began Jacob, "this here's Sara, my daughter."
What a bright little soul this child was! She was beautiful! "Well, good morning, Sara, I'm so glad to meet you," I said getting up to go over to her.
"We was waiting ta speak to ya," she said. "We didn't want to interrupt your prayers."
"Well, thank you, Sara. That was very nice of you," I said, happy that she had understood what we were doing.
"I hain't planned to come back," Jacob admitted, "but Sara, she insisted. She said she had seen ya'll a commin' and knowd that ya'll were them that she was waiting to see. The child's got a gift, ya see," Jacob explained.
I turned my eyes to Sara. She was beaming. "I'm so glad ya finally got here," she said with a big smile. "I've been waitin' so long for ya'll."
"You have?" I asked in surprise.
"Yup, Millie told me all 'bout ya, and that I was ta wait fur ya."
I looked at Jacob for an expalnation. "Oh, Millie's a ghost what talks ta Sara, or at least, that's what Sara says," he revealed.
"She's my friend, Pa. Ya know that - my friend!" Sara insisted. "My, you have purdy lights around you," she said looking off to the side of me at my aura.
"Why, thank you, Sara. You have beautiful lights around you, too.....

Sara proves to be very talented and an impotant addition to their group.

Morning friends. Here's another excerpt from "Sunrise, Day One!" In this scene Susan has met another survivor, a man named Randy Steiger, and she is giving him a can of greens to eat. He seems to be knowledgable about the aspects of ESP, and Susan has revealed to him the fact that she can see her spirit guide and the spirit of her dead son, Dave.

"Thank you," he said, taking the can. He dug right in. Between bites he asked, "How often does this Stephen come to see you?"
"Oh, actually he's here all the time or at least near. He becomes visiable to me whenever I think to him. You see, they hear our thoughts, and when we think of them or to them, they are immediately drawn to us. I'm sure it's that way with your guide."
"Really? he said. "Do you think they would appear if I thought to them?"
I thought a minute. "Well, I don't know why not. You are one of those chosen to remain on this earth, and they will be helping all of us. Why don't we ask them to join us?" I proposed.
Randy looked up, surprised at my suggestion, and then calmly said, "Okay, I'd like to meet him, and Dave, too."
With that, I closed my eyes and with my thoughts asked Stephen and Dave to join us. In an instant, Dave and Stephen stood in front of us. Randy almost dropped his can of greens as he looked up and saw the beautiful, raidiant forms of Stephen and Dave, glowing like sunlight against the wall of the barn. One word escaped Randy's lips. "Jesus!"
"No," said Stephen, "I am Stephen and this is Dave."
It was obvious that Randy wasn't used to seeing those in the spiritual form. He rose to his feet, never taking his eyes off Stephen and Dave. I was surprised in the changes in his aura; it seemed to draw in and change to very thin-looking colors at the same time.
"You have nothing to fear," said Stephen in a reassuring voice. " Please sit down and finish your meal."
Recovering himseslf, Randy seemed to realize for the first time that he was standing. He glanced at me and then sat back down.

Well, more next time. Enjoy!

I promised you another excerpt today, and so here it is. This scene takes place as Stephen is telling Susan more about the new circumstances on the earth since the cataclysm.

"Stephen, what about all those other people in the world? Did most of the world's people survive?
"No, Susan, not in the sense that you mean. Because of the higher vibration of this new dimension your Earth has undergone a cleansing. Most of those in physical bodies have gone back to the spiritual plane. There they will rest and later take on the challenges of development in new physical forms. Those who were not ready to make the step into the new dimension of this planet due to their negativity will now continue their unflodment in other worlds, which offer training on their level of developement. Those who were ready for the higher spiritual attunment will come back to the earth plane in the new age to come. The few that remain here through the transition are the seeds of that dawning civilization. The entities that will people this coming age are those who had developed their qualities of love, peace, and understanding of God and their fellow man to the fullest extent of their abilities under the influences of the prior dimension of Earth. They will have a better spiritual understanding, because they will have the new perceptual abilities given them by this dimension. With the past veil lifted, they will now be able to understand the source of their enmities, illnesses and misconceptions. With this new understanding, they will have the chance to work to bring balance, harmony and true peace into their lives."

If these excerpts interest you, please leave your comments.

I received my proof copy of "Sunrise, Day One!" yesterday afternoon, and today I am looking through it to check for printing errors, etc. It is so exciting to have the book in hand! As I look through the book, I get caught up in the story like I had never read it before! Silly, huh? That made me wonder if you out there might like to read some excerpts from the book?

The character who is initally telling the story is a middle aged woman named Susan O'Neal. She has awakened to find herself badly injured and her world drastically changed. She also discovers that she can talk to her spirit guide, Stephen face to face. In the following, Stephen is helping Susan remember what has happened to her.

Tears ran down my cheeks as I continued. "Things began falling out of the cabinets, the alarm clock fell off of the night stand, and I could hear glass crashing down in the bathroom. I couldn't belive it! An earthquake like this in Mid-America! It was all I could do to keep from falling down. I made my way down the hall by holding on to the wall. The phone was ringing. I grabbed for it in the living room and sat down on the floor as I answered it. It was Bob. He was screaming, 'Get out, get out! Take the car and drive south as fast as you can. Get...' And the line went dead. That was the last time I...." I took a deep breath to fight back the tears and to calm myself. "As if I weren't already frightened, I was now terrified! .... The thought came to me that I might not be able to drive out of here. About that time a big tree behind the house came crashing down. I decided to try the car. Maybe I could drive up to the main road. .... I got to the car, got in, started it and began creeping up the undulating driveway. As I drove around the cove and up toward the barn, I saw my cat, Jack run across the drive. I stopped the car thinking maybe I could get him. I got out and called him. That was when I heard the roar! It was a roar like nothing I had ever heard before. I turned and looked in the direction of the sound. I saw my house rocking and the water in the lake convulsing. I looked up the hillside behind the house and there, above the highest trees, I could see a giant wall of water coming down the lake! Out of sheer terror I turned and ran. The deafening roar increased as the water overtook me from behind. It knocked me down, and then I was up on top of the water, gasping for air. And then I was under the water again. Everything went black, and...I don't remember anything more until I woke up in the barn."

Well, I must get back to work. If you like that one, I'll post more tomorrow.
