Overview

Lynn V. Andrews takes the reader with her as she goes on inward journeys with the help of the Sisterhood of the Shields, and relates the stories of others.

Join her as she is initiated into the Sisterhood and creates her own shield, which will show her the nature of her spiritual path (Spirit Woman). Follow her to the Yucatan, where the medicine wheel leads her, and she is faced with the terrifying reality of the butterfly tree (Jaguar Woman). Enter the Dreamtime with her, where she emerges in medieval England as Catherine, and encounters the Grandmother, who offers to show Andrews how to make her life one of goodness, power, adventure, and love (The Woman of Wyrrd).

Not all these stories describe the author's own spiritual experiences. Meet Sin Corazön, an initiate into the Sisterhood, whose husband abandons her. She nearly succumbs to her inner dark power and unleashes her rage on men and the Sisterhood (Dark Sister). Andrews also writes about the elder women of the Sisterhood: their loves, their lives, their losses (Tree of Dreams).

Andrews shows us how to channel our own spiritual and intellectual energy and balance the need for love with the desire for power (Love and Power). She takes the reader on numerous spiritual journeys that inevitably uplift.

    This book is for anyone wanting to learn how to tap into inner guidance for creativity in the arts.

    Lynn speaks to us through Spirit

    Is a muse a spirit guide or some form of higher guidance? If so, how does a muse communicate with a writer? Do you have a guide looking over your shoulder as you type? These are some of the questions answered in Writing Spirit by Lynn Andrews.

    This book is for anyone wanting to learn how to tap into inner guidance for creativity in the arts. Whether your medium is literature, oil, pencil, drama or dance, you can be inspired to reach your goals and obtain your heart's desire by taking the first step: Take the first step. Yes, it is that easy. When you take action toward expressing your creativity, divine inspiration will meet you at the piano, at the typewriter, or at the easel.

    Learn what it really means to be a writer as you learn how to release your inspiration through Shamanic, spiritual traditions. Lynn Andrews has written 19 books using the principles she teaches in this book.

    The first and foremost question Lynn asks a writer to answer is "Why are you writing?" The second question is "Who are you writing for?" It's all about including spirit in your writing and in your life.
