Silence is one of the many gifts that comes with a 4 a.m. wake-up call. I unwrapped this gift for about a year or so. No alarm clock needed because I had a project, and a project that I loved exploring.
The quest was to lay down my thoughts on our environment and to create ways that each of us could benefit a struggling Planet Earth by discovering our interconnection with nature. Research grew essential. And research took me from poets of antiquity to contemporary scientific discoveries that showed in so many ways that we are, indeed, interconnected with nature. When we allow ourselves to accept this fact, our personal selves open the door to inner peace. Call it eco-spirituality.
Last August, “Connection with 48 Natural Contemplations” was birthed. Inspired by my own success in getting the book published, I added a companion journal, “Seek Beauty, Find Joy.” Each of the 48 contemplations follow the original outline from “Connection,” and includes a full color photo illustrating the contemplative concept.
I think a 1-year-old birthday celebration is in order. With the purchase of both books directly from me, I’ll include, at no extra charge, a few meditative aids like a beeswax candle in a red glass votive holder. Why beeswax?
“When beeswax candles burn, they clean the air like a great, natural, air purifier. Just like lightening, beeswax produces negative ions when burned. These negative ions attach to positive ions like dust, pollen, mold, odor, toxins floating in the air and in this process cleans the air.”
”Beeswax is a gift to you from nature. It is the purest and most natural of all waxes. Beeswax candles offer a golden flame, the longest, cleanest burn of any candle and produce a multi-level vibration that calms the inner senses while it sweetens the room with the pure scent of honey.”
Also in my gift to you is frankincense essential oil.
When diffused into the air, the oil is said to encourage feelings of peace and relaxation.
I have a limited supply of goodies for this offer, and it is available only and directly through me. Order from this website: https://charmainecoimbra.com/order-my-books-gift-ideas/ or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Praise for Connection with 48 Natural Contemplations
“Charmaine Coimbra combines ecology and spirituality in a seamless way that will allow readers to see the natural world through her eyes — eyes that are especially attuned to the healing power and peace of nature. With an obvious concern for preserving the beauty and balance of our world’s ecosystems, the author invites readers to envision themselves as part of the world around them that both needs conservation and can provide restoration for those who seek it.
“The author has done a lot of work to understand the scientific foundation of the issues she explores in each section, and there’s a lot of straightforward knowledge to be gleaned here. The meditations and contemplations also provide actionable steps to integrate the newfound awareness her essays seek to bring to readers.” —Writer’s Digest
- “It gave my soul a much needed boost. I feel Charmaine’s words and the sense of renewal.” —Christi M, Silverlake, CA
- “Among all the things I enjoyed in the reading was the author’s sense of the metaphysical and poetic mind. Both are skills that I don’t possess, and I found her soul baring awe-inspiring.” —Robert J, Los Angeles
- “Charmaine’s connections to nature , action points and contemplations to achieve peace of mind are interesting…I can see how many people will find her book both interesting and helpful to fulfill personal betterment.” —-Frank Bonaccorso, Ph.D, Emeritus Wildlife Biologist
