BOOK EXCERPT 1
I fell to my knees and cried out for help. I knew that if I didn’t give my life over completely, I was going to kill myself. Literally. I’d been knocked unconscious twice within eighteen months, and both “accidents” happened right as I had the thought,“I don’t want to be here.” I knew that my life was about to change in a big way.
I then had a revelatory experience—a direct experience of God’s Love that is almost impossible to describe. What I can say is that, on my knees, I found myself shaking and crying, feeling an unspeakable experience of love radiating throughout my entire being. This love was like nothing I had experienced before and had nothing to do with anything of this world. It was so whole and pure, deep, and breathtaking that my life was changed forever.
I knew that I was loved beyond anything I had ever understood. I knew that this love, this huge presence of majesty and grace, was behind everything, aware of everything, loving me always. In this recognition, my life was given over. Who wouldn’t give it over after something like that? Never again could I pretend to know my best interests unless I was in direct contact with this awareness. I felt, for the first time in my life, that I could relax and trust that the Spirit was in charge.
BOOK EXCERPT 2
After a couple of weeks at the Peace House, David and I were in our car, headed north on a road-trip to Vermont. Until this day, David had happily joined me for what I still felt were my essential afternoon “siestas.” Usually we managed to work siesta time into our travel schedule wherever we went, either by stopping in rest areas or arriving at our destination in time for a nap. However, on this day… READ MORE
BOOK EXCERPT VIDEO: “HOT THOUGHTS”
Kirsten experienced a profound miracle of mind when the car’s air conditioner stopped working. The beginning of what she thought would be a miserable car ride ended up revealing the power of her own mind in producing the experience of “hot.” Enjoy this re-telling of Kirsten’s parable of driving through sunny Florida on tour in 2004 with mystic David Hoffmeister.
Kirsten writes: This book is my experience of a profound and unexpected journey of awakening, detailing an accelerated path after being partnered with a mystic.
A significant part of the book is the journals that were a direct communication between myself and the Holy Spirit from 2005-2007. They are an example of how to ask for help, how to forgive, how to deal with the ego, and how to channel the Spirit. In a way, this is like a guidebook for awakening, as each deep metaphysical truth received by the Spirit was applied to my thoughts and life immediately, and literally became my pathway of awakening.
I had given my life to Jesus to guide, and I trusted him completely. Less than a year later, David Hoffmeister was brought into my life, and Jesus told me to extend my trust to David. This guidance opened my life, mind and heart up in ways I could never have imagined!
This book is a journey about the “Yes”, as well as facing the “No”, and choosing to trust once more. It’s about being in the fast flowing river that carries us Home when the decision is made to leave the river bank and dive in. It is about an authentic journey of asking, receiving, daring to be transparent, and daring to stay with the Spirits Plan. The Spirits Plan for me involved a very deeply devoted practice of trusting my brother. It still does. And this Trust in Oneness fills my heart with Joy.
