What inspires you to write?
The hairs on my arm stand on end when I learn about healing with sound, may sound strange – but true. My life purpose is to change the way the world understands sound and music. As much as you are what you eat, you are what you listen to. Sound waves combine with our thoughts, emotions, and physical bodies!
We can use sound and music for incredible benefits and change our lives on every level. I am introducing the world to this gift!
Tell us about your writing process.
It takes me years to write my books. I a geeky researcher of obscure arcane and ancient writings, as in ancient times people know of the power of sound and music. I am a passionate musician with numerous sound healing recordings our there, so I add my own personal experiences. This process has been magical, with strangers handing me books and people I dont know showing up on my doorstep telling me that I am supposed to interview them for my books! It makes me feel like on am on the right path to get this information out.
The information I write about is so obscure, I write after I get my information. I am psychic and I use these skills to try our these ancient vibratory healing methods after I gather information, and that helps to to report on them.
This is such a tiny niche and I write newsletters on sound healing and many of my readers give me tidbits they have learned as well. For this newsletter go to www.JillsWingsOfLight.com and download the free soundhealing mp3s at the bottom of the home page!
