Nina Shoroplova—an author who has been both an editor for my website and my client—is on a Virtual Ebook Tour the last three weeks of January to spread the word of her two upcoming ebook publications: Spiraling Self-Awareness: Personal Mission Revealed in 27 Days through Pythagorean Numerology’s Partnership with the 9-Chakra System and Trust the Mystery: Raising Self-Awareness through Questions, Quotes, and Quantum Wisdom (2nd edition). The two ebooks go on sale on January 25 through Kindle.
She writes about beliefs and misbeliefs in her book Trust the Mystery and sent me this excerpt from the second edition that she is about to publish through Kindle.
“Let me describe a misbelief I had that I stopped from becoming a grievance story. My husband and I vacationed in New York in April 2014 and, on day four of our week visiting that fascinating city, I fell coming out of a subway station and broke my hip. One of the first thoughts I had (after we had found out that we did indeed have travel insurance!) was a memory of what a broken hip meant to older women in the 1960s. Frequently, they would die soon after.
“Fortunately, soon after my emergency hip-replacement surgery, I learned that people today can make complete recoveries from hip surgery. I decided that I would be in the complete-recovery crowd. Being an actor and a physiotherapist, I have been mimicking gaits for decades, so I tried different styles of walking until I could completely disguise that I have an artificial hip. For a while it was easier to go downstairs than upstairs, but now it’s all the same.
“Even as I recovered from hip surgery, that old belief about dying from a hip fracture was still hovering around my subconscious, depressing me. My acupuncturist, JZ Bown, who is also a medical intuitive, gave me several ThetaHealing sessions, turning around that misbelief.
“What irony that my vacation email responder while we were in New York said, ‘I am out of the office for a short spring break.’ Be careful what you wish for!
“Are you cherishing a grievance story? What are its elements? Can you flesh out the grievance stories for the other parties involved? Does writing about the various grievance stories help to dispel the problem? See it differently? What misbeliefs are you holding onto? Are they holding you back?”
Thank you, JZ, for offering to host venue #7 on this virtual ebook tour. Oh, and by the way, Christian and I are going to New York again this April to catch a few more Metropolitan Opera productions, the same reason we went the first time, so I have no lingering misbeliefs on that topic!
Join Nina Shoroplova on her Virtual Ebook Tour between January 9 and 27, and travel with her to her hosting venues.
