I’m not a religious person. I stopped going to church when I was fifteen, but I have always believed there had to be a greater power that explained the magnificence of the universe and our place as human beings in it. Still, never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that I would go through a profound spiritual process like the one I describe in Return to My Soul. I didn’t know that such a process was possible. It’s taken me a long time to understand my experience, and even longer to talk about it.
One of the reasons I’m sharing my story is to let you know that spiritual experiences are natural. They arise from a place deep within that you may not even know is there. You’ve probably connected with this place many times without realising it. Next time you’re out in nature, watching a beautiful sunset or listening to soothing music see if you notice an inner gentleness and peace.
