A young woman finds herself bound by another
world's chaos and karma won't let her find peace,
not until destiny is completed.

Blurb 

A war like no other is on the horizon. 

Having thought that she had finally escaped the past, Bea finds herself hunted down by an unknown enemy who violently rips her life apart.

The harsh changes that follow catapult her on a journey that not only brings personal transformation but one that marks a new era for two worlds. 

Karma never forgets and until the cycle of a soul is complete, the past will never fade away.

“Silently, one by one, in the infinite meadows
of heaven, Blossomed the lovely stars,
the forget-me-nots of the angels.”

Empyrean (similar to the Sindria, Calageata), in ancient cosmologies was occupied by the element of fire (or aether (Light) in Aristotle's natural philosophy). It is the dwelling-place of the blessed, celestial beings so divine they are made of pure light, and are the source of light and creation. This paradise is depicted as a series of concentric spheres surrounding the Earth, which includes the Empyrean. 

Calageata is a home for souls. The entrance is often referred to as Swan-Gate, which represents an ethereal swan-type bird (Bennu) in the Otherworld creation story. A sacred bird that could cross time and space on a cosmic sea.

book one excerpt

Removing the Otherworldly veil

He cupped her face in his hands. “Now, let me take you on a journey to the place of souls, to your little piece of heaven.” His fingers glided from her face, down her neck to her arm, and then gently grasped her hand. “With your hand in mine, permit me to show you something magical, a place where we will always be able to join with each other, no matter where we are, together or alone. There is no measure of time or distance where we are going, and we will stay grounded to this realm by our physical touch…”


~ A Carpet of Purple Flowers

what you seek is seeking you

“Rushing into action, you fail. Trying to grasp things, you lose them.

Forcing a project to completion, you ruin what was almost ripe.

Therefore the Master takes action by letting things take their course. He remains as calm at the end as at the beginning. He has nothing, thus has nothing to lose. 

What he desires is non-desire; what he learns is to unlearn. 

He simply reminds people of who they have always been. He cares about nothing but the Tao. Thus he can care for all things.” 

― Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching

Some stories soak into the threads of the universe, beyond time, becoming echoes of memory lingering in the darkness, like the light of dead stars, whispering light, forever eluding.  

― Tracey-anne

To touch the soul fears of the mind must be conquered and silenced, only then will the light of the inner warrior shine through. 

Know that in this warrior's heart lies hidden strength. It glows and pulsates with the light of the soul, grasp it, don't let go. Let it guide the way. 

― Tracey-anne

― Rumi

Everything is energy. Connected. 

Your light (soul) is woven into the very fabric of the universe. We are all living within this web - an invisible network known to the Sidhe as the Siathia. Everything that comes to be, originated from this source. Imagine thin gossamer threads carrying information on everything that was, is, and will be. The stories of the Norns, the web weavers, and the fates - all represent what we already know but have forgotten. 

Synchronicities, chance meetings that change your life, are all known to Siarthia before happening to you. It's like a zillion upon a zillion possibilities all possible at once and what you decide affects everything else - the butterfly effect. The Akashic records, an invisible library, holds all the possible variants of our lives. We have the freedom to choose, break away from old patterns, threads, that no longer serve our best self. 

we are all light from stardust

Flower of voror

her little peace of heaven

The purple flowers of Vo-ror-bla / karma that are mentioned in the books, subtly symbolise the flower of life.

What is the flower of life?

The Flower of Life is most likely something that you have seen before. It is a common symbol of many spiritual teachings. It has been found all over the world in many different religions and is one of the oldest sacred symbols known to man. 

Its origins are from sacred geometry and contains all the essential building blocks of the universe called Platonic solids and is found in all ancient civilizations. It is a universal symbol depicting the creation of all existence.

The oldest depiction of the flower of life known to man is at The Temple of Osiris in Abydos, Egypt. A rather interesting depiction of the flower of life is found in The Forbidden City, in Beijing, China. It is in a spherical form underneath the paw of the “Fu-Dog,” or more accurately known as the “Guardian Lion.”Fu-Dogs were considered to be the guardians of knowledge.

we are light, 
we are one,

The First Star & Flower of Life

"We are a way for the universe to know itself. Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return. And we can, because the cosmos is also within us. We're made of star stuff." 

~ Sagan 

Carbon, nitrogen and oxygen atoms in our bodies, as well as atoms of all other heavy elements, were created in previous generations of stars over 4.5 billion years ago. Because humans and every other animal, as well as most of the matter on Earth contain these elements, we are literally made of star stuff, said Chris Impey, professor of astronomy at the University of Arizona. So, all life on earth and the atoms in our bodies were created in the furnace of now-long-dead stars.

A philosopher once asked, "Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?" 

"Do the stars gaze back? Now, that's a question.” 

― Neil Gaiman, Stardust

“Not just beautiful, though--the stars are like the trees in the forest,

alive and breathing. And they're watching me.” 

― Haruki Murakami

The Tuath(a) Dé Danann (usually translated as "people(s)/tribe(s) of the goddess Danu"), also known by the earlier name Tuath Dé ("tribe of the gods"), are a race of supernaturally-gifted people in Irish mythology. 

The people are known as "The Sidhe" or people of the mounds, or "The Lordly Ones" or "The Good People" were descended from the "Tuatha de Danann" who settled in Ireland millennia ago.

The aos sí (Irish pronunciation: "ees shee", older form aes sídhe), "ays sheeth-uh") is the Irish term for a supernatural race in Irish mythology and Scottish mythology, (usually spelt Sìth, however pronounced the same) comparable to the fairies or elves. 

This world is described in the Book of Invasions (recorded in the Book of Leinster) as a parallel universe in which the aos sí walk amongst the living. In the Irish language, aos sí means "people of the mounds" (the mounds are known in Irish as "the sídhe"). In Irish literature the people of the mounds are also called daoine sídhe ; in Scottish mythology they are daoine sìth. They are variously said to be the ancestors, the spirits of nature, or goddesses and gods.

Some refer to them as fallen angels. 

Ode

a lyric poem, typically one in the form of an address to a particular subject, written in varied or irregular metre.

'Keep your light bright'

I didn't want to overcomplicate the main story and was unable to put all of the worlds that I've created with its technicalities in the book. Instead, I will be adding some extra pieces that I have written on the book edit pages. It will explain more of the characters and world/philosophies. 


A little taster of some concepts are lower down on the page (past the lyrics).

The ballad 'Keep your light bright' represents the ancient art of storytelling via poetry/music.
It is a derivation of "The Song of Amergin" from 'A Carpet of Purple Flowers' perspective. 


A man laments his lover, twin flame, whom he sees in all things, past, present, and future. 

The Song of Amergin is considered to be one of the oldest Irish literary works, reflecting the victorious spirit of the Milesians, who were among the original settlers in Ireland.

 

It also captures an ancient human aspiration of Celtic folklore and literature, namely the identification of the bard or storyteller and in shamanic terms, the ability to shapeshift into the spirit of other created things.

'keep your light bright'

a song created from the background of spiritual ideas I had for the initial trilogy

inspired by "The Song of Amergin" - for the divine feminine & divine male aspects

She has been a deer of seven times, observing the realm through nature's heart
I have been a rush of water across the plain
She has whispered in the winds across the stream
I am a glistening droplet from the source of light
She has been a swan upon the island in the lake

Keep your light bright
So that I might see through the mists,
and once again we can look upon a carpet of purple flowers
Keep your light bright
So that our souls may meet again in your little piece of heaven
Keep your light bright

She has been on a visual journey, between the parted veil of both our worlds
She is a goddess within the flowers mists
I am a blue flicker of hope that rises in her horizon
She and I are the gentle ripples in the well of souls
She is the sacred mound in which the secrets lay
Well I am a Crow, a guardian of the knowledge within

Keep your light bright
So that I may see through the mists,
and once again we can look upon a carpet of secret flowers
Keep your light bright
So that our souls may meet again in your little piece of heaven
Keep your light bright

I am the voice in the breaking waves
She is an instrument of the moon and her tides
I am one of the keepers of the unhewn stone
She is an encapsulated flower, prior to birth
She is my guiding light, high in the heavens

(chorus)

I am the Agnaya... the protector
She is the Aniya... the light within
We all, reside within... the web of Vororbla
We all exist within... the Siarthia
We all, within, are Ameusouya... you and me, us - one

Twin Flames 

Ameusouya ( Am-e-us-ou-ya ) means complete/whole (you, me, us ~ one)

The Agnaya (Ag-naya) means male energy (Yang)  &  the Aniya (A-niya) means female energy (Yin)

Anam Cara refers to the Celtic spiritual belief of souls connecting and bonding. In Celtic Spiritual tradition, it is believed that the soul radiates all about the physical body, what some refer to as an aura. When you connect with another person and become completely open and trusting with that individual, your two souls begin to flow together. Should such a deep bond be formed, it is said you have found your Anam Cara or soul friend. 

Your Anam Cara always accepts you as you truly are, holding you in beauty and light. In order to appreciate this relationship, you must first recognize your own inner light and beauty.

"Anam Cara, a mostly forgotten ancient and eternal union that cuts across all barriers of time, convention, philosophy and definition. A joint spiritual arrival at that most sacred place: home."

As an artist and writer, I love to share with people where I draw my inspiration. Maybe it helps in understanding the many layers that exist beneath a story. Like a painting, where each creative stroke will cover the previous until finally, the picture presents itself as a whole. 

Each person will see/experience something different via the same story, and right there... is the magic. 

Lyrical metaphors explained

The Agnaya (Ag-naya) means male energy (Yang)

The Aniya (A-niya) means female energy (Yin)

Siarthia (Siar-thia) means Akashic Record -

A compendium of mystical knowledge encoded in a non-physical plane of existence known as the astral plane. 

Ameusouya ( Am-e-us-ou-ya ) means complete/whole (you, me, us, =one)

Vororbla means soul / karmic cycle.

Secret flower - The flower of Vororbla (of karma)- is called Voror. A secret, sacred flower 

that produces a carpet of purple flowers in the beautiful, otherworldly gardens of Calageata.  

In Norse mythology, a vǫrðr ("warden," "watcher" or "caretaker") is a warden spirit, 

believed to follow from birth to death the soul of every person. 

At times, the warden can reveal itself as a small light or in the shape of a being - known as the elemental Sindria.

 

A Carpet of Purple Flowers - A sacred area, garden of another world that ethereal beings roam, known as Calageata. 

A purple flower represents spirituality and mysticism. 

 

Goddess within the flowers mists - female soul, the feminine energy.

 

Unhewn stone - The Heaven Stone (ancient teachings/untouched, not finished in form, non-corrupt knowledge)

 

Her little piece of heaven - visual meditation  (Book one). 

Usually a place of unseen existence where souls and deities reside, outside of the tangible world. 

Human beings associate this otherworldly place with many names, but Bea calls it heaven.

 

Blue flicker of hope on her horizon - light of sacred connection, of hope and promise.

 

Sacred mound -  the body where ancient knowledge lays within. 

 

Ripples in the well of souls - Souls returning home (via magical waters) ~ a lake in Calageata. 

 

Crow guardian - A protector with knowledge.

Moon (her) Water (him) - Neither can find their balance without each others guidance.

The moon is considered a luminary but produces no light by her own accord. She is reliant upon the sun's (male) light to reflect (mirror) her image to earthly eyes. Water is affected by the moon.

Encapsulated flower, prior to birth - Soul energy awaiting renewal. Encapsulation means that the internal representation of an object that is generally hidden from view. A closed, encapsulated Voror flower represents the time before enlightenment. 

A Voror flower fully bloomed and open represents full enlightenment and self-awareness.

 

Whispered in the winds - Where mythical people supposedly once lived "beyond the North Wind".

(More about these histories in book four - The butterfly bridge & Women of the Sea).

 

Mists - A mist emitted via the purple (soul) flower in Calageata. 

A cloud of tiny water (otherworldly dew) droplets suspended in the atmosphere which limits visibility.

 

Glistening droplet - Shield of dew mist, look further to the light beyond.

The crow, the deer, and the fox ~ A Children's Story HERE

A story told by Vishnu-Sarma to young princes. Original source: Fables and Proverbs from the Sanskrit, being the Hitopadesa. Charles Wilkins (1787).

Spirit Guides ~ In the shamanic belief every thing is alive and carries with it power and wisdom. Shamans believe that everyone has a power animal/animal spirit that attaches to individuals adding to their power and protecting them, acting similarly to a guardian angel. Everyone is thought to have a few of these guardian power animals over a lifetime. A particular power animal can help you with an issue that is very specific to you. More HERE

It is said that a Spirit Animal will come to you with a message when you need it.

I was inspired by the tale and images below to further develop the spiritual idea, in a different way. This added an extra little twist to the story ~ which reminds me of The Deisi and The Heaven Stone Warriors way of life/thinking - a soul represented in many forms.
