Now that I've arrived home from 4 months of traveling I intend to spend more time reading novels and new spiritual non-fiction titles again. Remember when you had a summer reading list in grammar school and high school? When I was growing up, my family and I went to our summer house in Breezy Point, NY every year. We opened the house on Memorial Day weekend and closed it down shortly after Labor Day. The beach house was my favorite place for the first 18 years of my life.
When Vincent and I recently traveled to Orcas Island it brought back the level of relaxation that I haven't experienced since those days in Breezy Point. I added 3 days onto my speaking tour of the Pacific Northwest on the front end of the trip just to rest. We stayed at a lovely place - see the post of June 3. While I was there I read quite a bit. I sucked in 3 novels in 3 days.
I think that after writing 18 chapters in my own book I needed to read to restore the balance in my energy field! My new book is coming out in the Spring of 2009. I am very excited about this. Llewellyn Worldwide is my publisher and so far my experience with them has been all good! I am now in the stage of obtaining promotional comments for the book. They'll use it on the back of the book as well as inside of it. I am blessed to know many authors so I should be able to get a few good endorsements.
I would like to manifest endorsements from some very well known authors - some of which I actually do know - so hold the vision with me that they would love to endorse it. It is a bit harder to get the really famous authors to endorse your book because they are inundated with these requests.
I would really like to get Jack Canfield and Denise Linn to say a few good words. I can imagine them happily agreeing to do this, so it is quite possible right? Actually, I would love for Doreen Virtue to endorse it. I know Doreen from the time before she was famous. She spoke at The Crystal Garden in the mid-1990s. She actually stayed over at my house. Doreen still remembers me and we chat when I see her at Trade Shows and other similar venues. She introduced me as one of her personal friends when I was in her certification for Angel Therapy Practitioner (R) Here is a link to a photo of the 2 of us: Doreen and Margaret
The working title of the book is: The Crystal Healers Manual: A Definitive Guide to Spiritual Healing through Color, Chakras, Crystals, Aromatherapy and the Power of Intention. It is a really good book, even if I must say so myself. I look forward to the day it's gracing bookshelves throughout the country - on people's night tables, in class rooms, people reading it on the airplane and hotels, sitting on the beach with the book and even in the bathroom! Everywhere one would read a book, that's where my book will be. I'll let you know what the final title is as soon as that is uncovered.
I can imagine Oprah interviewing me on her show about this book. Can't you? Hold that vision with me, too, please! After all, you can include yourself sitting in the audience at Harpo Studios while Oprah and I talk about the power of positive thought amplified by the use of color and gemstones. If you don't want to travel to Chicago, can't you imagine watching Oprah and you suddenly realize - wow! That's Margaret Ann Lembo! I know her for years from The Crystal Garden or I've had an Angel Gemstone Oracle Session with her - or I've sat in her classes - or she rung up my sale at The Crystal Garden . . . and the list goes on!
It will be a sparkling show. She can have other people on that have successful businesses that use color and crystals to decorate homes, hotels and business. Oprah might add spas and healing centers that incorporate the use of color, aromatherapy and chakra balancing. Oh - the power of Spiritual Healing, Feng Shui, Yoga, Tai Chi and any holistic therapy can be included on the show. Actually, this is a very good idea for a show for Oprah. I know she will like me!
Does anyone have connections to get me scheduled on Oprah in the Spring of 2009? WE can all go out for a big party in Chicago after the show, OK?
I dream big and know and trust that this or something better will become the manifest reality. And for this I am grateful.
With Love and Gratitude,
Margaret Ann Lembo
