Why the Book Was Written

In 1997 and 1998, I began to hear messages coming to me as I meditated. In the spring of 1998, a new spiritual guide started to share a wealth of information with me about changes coming to the Earth and the nature of reality. At that time, I was new to the concept of a spiritual path and was quite the spiritual brat. When I asked, the new guide said his name was Hilarion and that he was a representative of the Council of Seven. I had never heard of either Hilarion or the Council of Seven, and I thought the name seemed ridiculous and too much like the word hilarious. So I asked if I could call him something else. I heard a gentle chuckle, and Hilarion indicated we would stick to using the name he had given me.

After the mediation ended, I searched the Internet for the name Hilarion and found that I had been gifted with information from an ascended master. This chastened me somewhat, but not too much. I really was very cocky and riding high on the euphoria of spiritual and psychic messages. I believe the euphoria was the hook to get me to take a closer look at the nature of my existence.

The messages from Hilarion continued regularly for about a year. I received quite a bit of information about my “past lives,” the past of our planet Earth and Earth’s role and importance to the galaxy and universe, as well as coming changes for the planet. I shared some of the information verbally with friends, but I kept most of it to myself and used it to further my own personal understanding and my spiritual and psychic growth. I didn’t write anything down.

As a result of my inner changes, my outer life shifted. I changed careers, divorced, met a wonderful man, Nate Hall, and helped him raise two young children. I continued to channel short inspirational messages from Hilarion, which I began to write down in notebooks, but I didn’t have detailed dialogue with him about the nature of reality.

In the summer of 2011, the two children were now adults. I began to have inklings that I was supposed to be writing down material to share with a wider audience, but I wasn’t sure how to proceed. I started typing my short, channeled messages onto business card templates with a view to creating an inspirational card deck. I also renewed active conversations with Hilarion, but I still didn’t know where those conversations were headed or what would result.

Then in a group meditation, my Reiki teacher, Nancy Retzlaff, conveyed a message from the Council of Seven. My ears perked up, and I knew I had been given a clue. Another nudge from the universe came when a psychic named Beverly Kay did a lovely six-month reading and pushed me to begin writing books—not book, but books plural. I was terrified and didn’t know how to begin or what to write about, but I knew I had to start.

I began writing down my channeled bits more actively. I figured that at least I was writing something; maybe it would turn into a book somehow. I asked Hilarion to provide me with more material from the Council of Seven. One day I found myself writing, “You have been given these words. Use them to re-write your reality and so others shall as well.” Material about a concept called the sharing began to flow. The book The Sharing: The Owner’s Manual For Being Human is the result. I hope the ideas bring more fun, clarity, and freedom into your life. That is their purpose.
