Welcome from your Intuition Queen.
In Episode 5 of Intuitive Queens Podcast, I am interviewing Lisa Reck.
Lisa is the best -selling author of the book BREAKING THROUGH THE STORM and a personal blogger.
LISTENING TO A VOICE INSIDE OF YOU
In this episode Lisa tells us how her journey into writing started from a voice inside of her telling her to write a book.
She explains that, writing a book had never been one of her dreams but how the moment she felt the call, she knew what the book was going to be about.
WRITING AS A HEALING REMEDY TO HEAL
Lisa’s brother had been murdered just after having finished college and Lisa was only 11 when that happened.
She tells us how she always had this desire to finish his life, so she listened to her intuition and did what she knew she had to do.
In the process of writing her story she realised, she was healing.
Lisa thought she had overcome all the pain related to her brother’s death, which happened almost 20 years ago.
But, while writing, she realised that was not the case and that there were things she did not know she had to heal.
FROM THE FEAR OF WHAT PEOPLE WOULD THINK, TO A DESIRE TO EMPOWER THEM
When Lisa started to write she had clear in mind that nobody was going to know about this book. She had the intention to self-publish it, finish her brother’s story as she always wanted and move on.
This intention changed when she attended a week-long seminar with Jack Canfield, called Breakthrough to Success.
In that seminar, she realised that her book could help other people that had gone through a tragedy and needed inspiration to breakthrough pain and find a way to move forward.
This new revised purpose, gave Lisa the courage to go past her fears.
Once back home she rewrote the book in a way that would provide tools to the readers, to make sure they would be inspired to take-action to feel better and finally move on.
She rewrote the book and divided it in 3 parts.
The reader story.
Our story; how can we, human, we as a society help other people to what we have experienced, what we have gone through.
THE POWER OF GRATITUDE AND FORGIVENESS
Lisa talks a lot about the power of gratitude and forgiveness, how using them she was able to overcome the pain and transform her life in a way that could serve herself and other people.
Being grateful for what we have is the first step to create a happier and more fulfilling life.
Focusing on the positive, will attract more positive situations and love in your life.
The past cannot be changed.
It’s up to us to make sure that we are able to create a better future for ourselves and the people we love.
Lisa also talks about the great power of forgiveness, in particular, forgiveness toward yourself first.
When life happens, emotions take us on a ride and it is important to forgive ourselves for having had that emotions and thoughts and release what doesn’t serve us anymore.
YOUR STORY IS EMPOWERING FOR OTHERS
Lisa is now working on co-writing a book of stories called OUR UNFINISHED LIFE.
Inspired by the reaction that people had with her book BREAKING THROUGH THE STORM and with her weekly blog posts, she has now embarked a new project for which she feels very passionate about.
In fact, she is collecting your stories!
