Author of “INTENTIONAL HEALING

 

~~~~~

This week Jennie is being treated like ROYALTY by the RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB Family!  She’s on a “28 Blog” Tour and today, we are so lucky to have her here at WATCH NONNIE WRITE!, where of course, we talk about EVERYTHING.  And so now, here’s Jennie’s story…

“I want to thank the Members of the Board of the RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB for this incredible opportunity to be featured as the club’s first  “SPOTLIGHT” Author.  You’ve all done a great deal of work to make this club a reality.  To NONNIE JULES, Founder & President, thank you for founding the club and giving authors a place to hang their hats among friends.  I am also grateful to my longtime friend, Kathy Treat, (Membership Director) for inviting me to join.  Marketing and promotion are challenges for the first-time author.  Being selected as the “SPOTLIGHT” Author who receives marketing and promotion to the social media outlets, as well as to print media, is truly a gift from Heaven.  Last, but not least at all, I’m sending a special thank you to all the bloggers who are hosting me this week on their sites.  I am truly grateful.

I have always loved to read, so it was natural for me to pursue a career where I could share my love of reading with others, which I did as a Teacher of English.  I liked writing, too, but it took years to hone my craft.  I was fortunate to have wonderful mentors.  One in particular, at Random House, the trade publishing company in New York City, literally taught me how to think about writing, always holding the reader in mind and using that focus to sharpen the clarity of my text.  My experience at Random House opened the door to a career in public health consulting.  Working in a busy editorial office on publications for many clients, each with specific needs, gave me the perfect opportunity to gain experience writing and editing books, papers and articles targeting different audiences at varying reading levels.  As a service to all of the writers and editors who might be reading this blog post, I’d like to pass along the names of the manuals that I’ve used throughout my career.  They can all be found on Amazon.  They are: The Chicago Manual of Style, Words Into Type, New Hart’s Rules, Fowler’s Modern English Usage and Scientific Style and Format.

Now to my book:  In “Intentional Healing…” I tell the story of my transformation from a Western-educated woman who worked as a writer and editor in the field of public health, to a woman who awakened to a more Eastern-oriented way of thinking that included a de-emphasis on the individual and ego and an emphasis on collective consciousness and the soul.  After bizarre symptoms up-ended my life, I sought help from Western medicine.  No one I consulted could explain what was happening to me.  No one, that is, until I met diagnostic detective, Dr. Leo Galland, who tied my symptoms to environmental illness and referred me to a pioneer in environmental medicine, Dr. William J. Rea, in Dallas, TX, founder of the Environmental Health Center – Dallas.  While at the EHC-D, I was introduced to the view held by doctors of environmental medicine that many chronic illnesses are triggered by environmental toxins.  During treatment, I unmasked (or became aware) of a sensitivity to electromagnetic fields.  Dr. Rea then referred me to Deborah Singleton, Founder and Director of “A HEALING PLACE”, and her energy healing team.  Energy balancing helped me respond to the treatment program at Dr. Rea’s clinic.  With Deborah’s guidance, I began the process of expanding my consciousness and understanding the real roots of illness.  My journey, which included initiation into Reiki channeling and healing from Navajo hataali, took me from dark nights of the soul to a new way of thinking about illness.

  1. Congratulations Jennie. I just finished listening to your interview with Cultural Cocktails @JGRWriter on Blogtalkradio bit.ly/1ad6jIQ and listening to your voice say, “If we give more than what is comfortable for us to give love turns into resentment and resentment harms both the giver and the receiver” among other things. I am inspired by your wisdom and I very much look forward to reading your book. Rave Reviews Book Club, thank you for introducing me and so many others to Jennie. I have a feeling that this club is only going to get better and better.

My thanks to Rave Reviews, Nonnie Jules who founded the book club, and to all the Members of the Board, especially you, my longtime Dallas friend. We shared so much at Dr. Rea’s clinic, and a bond formed between us that will last forever. I am so grateful for your help–with Twitter, WordPress, Rave Reviews, and so much more. Knowing someone is out there who understands makes a world of difference. Blessings, Jennie
