Spiritshine :)

If you’ve followed my blog for awhile then you’ve likely read my story of abuse.

If not, that’s okay.  🙂

The purpose of this blog is to share someone else’s story.

Having followed Aurora Morealist since the beginning of my blogging “career”, I can honestly say she is a remarkable woman.  Her journey is on-going as she struggles with the P.T.S.D. as a result of the abuse she suffered for so long.  Too long.  Way, way too long.

I admire her courage and strength in ways I can’t put into words.

Talk about an inspiration!  I love her to pieces!

She’s taken her journey a step further and written her first book, aptly titled SPIRITSHINE and believe me when I say her spirit absolutely shines!

A little about her book…

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is not exclusive to survivors of war as Aurora shows readers in the poetic writings that saved her life. Relentless shock wars on her psyche since 2010 – deaths, betrayals, abuses – left her traumatized and alone with writing often her only companion. What she has learned thus far: Art saves lives. If you write, draw, craft, paint, stitch, make music, dance, sing, you have a life saver like no other. Holding fastly to her own savior of writing, Aurora writes what she can to emphasize this message: PTSD does NOT alter your character, personality or intelligence; it simply destroys your ability to cope. And it can happen to anyone. Anytime. Aurora’s real world resume is admirable with career achievements and writing awards as intact as her innate character and professional references. None of this matters any more. She may never be the same again and is finally at peace with this. While writing isn’t always possible for Aurora, or perhaps, possible to do well…writing is her anchor, her life line, her way forward. Won’t you join her as she writes the wrongs, soulfully healing herself in the hope of helping others – one word at a time – shining love, sharing boundaries and savoring nature in short verse that speaks to gratitude, loss and being human.

If you have been a victim of abuse or know someone who has, PLEASE consider buying her book.

You can get it here: SPIRITSHINE.

Her intent was to never make money from her story but to educate and inform those who’ve gone through the same nightmare.  She’s working to make it as cheap as possible!  There is a COUPON CODE for a $3 off an already crazy inexpensive price of $8.88.  The CODE:  MCTEVAJ2.

If you will SHARE the book, that is much appreciated as well!

Thank you, Friends & love to all of you!

  1. OH! My eyes open widely today! To tears! Happy ones! Thank you so much for your beautiful blog, my kind, wise and loyal friend who writes so well I wish you’d written my poetry for me… that would be a built in guarantee of “no disappointment” for readers as much was done in the blackest of nights. You always give me cause to smile and stop and think about what really matters in this world. Kind, pure, hearts like yours! Shine on, my sweet and lovely friend, shine on. But for you and many others in the blogging community, I am sure I would not be writing this at all. Thanks again, Lisa, from my heart to yours. ❤ ❤ ❤
    It would be nice if people just joined the event, nevermind bought the book because it's all to bring light to Mental Health Awareness Week/Month which is what I was plunged into and why the book even exists at all… it is a collection of selected writings born of my experience… literally…. Thanks again, doll, you rock!!! xo
