Sandra’s story is perfect. Everyone knows how strong Sandra is and how brilliant she is, and how much excellent work she has done over decades. So to be honest enough to say she has fallen and risen so many times within herself, and people can see still through this pain how magnificent she is. It shows that if Sandra can love and learn in her difficult life and have much to share, then others can also rise above themselves. Very powerful.
The first poem The Sanctuary of The Heart makes you question, what does this mean? And then with ‘Softness and Lightness and Reverence’ and then the space, ‘may we enter’ it leaves us poised in grace and awe waiting to be lead into the book.
Then the first lines of ‘The Wounded Heart’ ‘I didn’t want to see you, your pain I didn’t feel, Your presence softly calling me, help me please to heal’. As I go through the poem, I feel taken over by this love, the love of caring, sharing, wanting to give support. It’s just fabulous, the simplicity of it, it’s exquisite. Then at the end ‘No more my wounded heart’ I can feel the depth of the love that can be awakened in people’s hearts to help them through these moments of healing. People don’t have to be afraid to delve into the pain to reach the place of love and forgiveness.
I’m looking forward to seeing what Sandra has to offer in the next steps after this book bringing people into their own personal evolution steps.
This book had me straight away.
As I read on I enter into another woman’s soul and heart, who offers me so much support and love, and I watch intimately how she falls and rises. To see these words written down reveals how she can guide us and bring us into this magnificent place of awe and protection.
Sandra has put her own words into poems songs and prayers and this beautiful book is here to help us all, to understand how we too can guide ourselves through the pain we hold within ourselves, within our situations , within our own hearts. I’m so delighted to have this support from Sandra, to be able to be involved in the feelings and emotions that I can evolve within myself. By watching her and feeling everything she does in awe, gives me hope that I too can come from that place to heal myself, I’m just so grateful to her for doing this.
