The who, what, when and why of my book
For years prior to writing this book, my hubs David, clients and friends urged me to share the who, what, when and why of where I was and where I am today.
Oddly it was a quote that framed things in a way that made sense to share my healing and spiritual path from the "there to my healthy, happy here. The essence of the quote was, "those who have walked through the fires and became a Phoenix have a moral responsibility to give the lessons back to give other their transformational wings."
The girl in the shadows on the book jacket was me back "there.| " I wrote this book as a testimony of hope and chronicale how my scars were turned into Lodestars that guide my and others I share our Change Making ideas with today. My book is an offering and affirmation that it is not what happens to us that defines who and what we become. Instead, it is how we respond and choose to do about it.
Bright blessings on your own journey,
Coralie "Raia" Darsey-Malloy

Sarah McLachlan - Fear (live) HQ
Sarah McLaughlin is a writer, eloquent wordsmith and her lyrics and performances resonate with aspects of my life past and present. With the trauma, drama, loss of control earlier in life I developed and lived within a fear-based reality for years.
My biggest fear was around the medical model and fear of what people would think of me and the shadow world I lived within for the first part of my life path.
At a pivotal point in my soul path discoveries, I found ways to cut the ties that bound me with fear when I had an epiphany around the truth that the biggest fear is from fear itself. I came to terms with the truth that most of what we fear is going ot happen never does and whatever we thought would happen tomorrow was the today I was living without it manifesting.
Within the entangling mind trips and mind traps, I tangled my thinking in were delusions, perceptions, and beliefs from the past being projected into my now. A Buddhist teaching says, "All suffering comes from attachment."
That light bulb moment was a turning point. I began changing my beliefs and my life changed accordingly. The law of attraction is based on energy that whatever we give attention to expands. My wise mother always cautioned me by saying, "My dear, do not borrow trouble by focusing on what you do not want to bring into your life. Focus on what you DO want instead."
So I let go of fear, and the liberation continually frees up the energy to focus on manifesting the best life has to offer rather than hiding and worrying that "the other shoe will drop." What a waste of time and energy it truly is.
No matter what the injustice...never allow a person or system to silence you into a submission. Never submit, give up, or not fight for your right to be heard or your right to expose the truth. Never accept a deal or situation that devalues and silences your voice and alters your souls' journey! Stand up and fight for the truth!"~ L.E.Shaefer
"Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend… when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present – love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure – the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience heaven on earth."~Sarah Ban Breathnach ....."I do not fix problems. I fix my thinking. Then problems fix themselves."
