What people are saying about The Ripple of Awakening

“If you have found yourself reading these words, I would advise you to stop now and just buy The Ripple of Awakening book. I’m not usually one to leave reviews but in this case, I felt compelled to encourage anyone unsure whether to purchase, to just go ahead, you won’t regret it. I think “A Mighty Companion on the Spiritual Awakening Journey” perfectly sums up what this book has become to me. I’m not a newbie when it comes to spiritual or self-help books by any stretch but this book, in my view, is a must read and has helped me immensely since reading it. It may force you to challenge your way of thinking, it certainly did me on my first read through, but I still found it a joy to read and have just finished reading it for the second time. I believe this book found its way to me exactly when I needed it and I hope it helps you as much as it has me. I can’t express my gratitude to the author (Ann-Marie) enough for writing such a helpful, informative, honest, sometimes funny and inspiring book.” James Hedges

Ann-Marie has written an extremely valuable and much needed book here. Anyone who has already begun, or about to begin, stepping onto their Spiritual Path will gain great value from its contents. Ann-Marie has made this journey easy to follow and understand with wonderful personal, and other fellow travellers’ stories, with which newcomers can relate. The journey can be very lonely and confusing, at times, and this book will remind the reader that they have many Mighty Companions to accompany and support them on their journey. This beautiful book is one of those Companions and I can recommend it without reservations”.

I have a PhD in Genetics and am a former Neuro-Scientist who was firmly steeped in the belief that ‘when you’re dead, you’re DEAD’. My time of ‘awakening’ to my Spiritual aspect arrived when I was rocked to my core following the death of two husbands. I wish I could have had a book like this with which to guide me at a time when I sure felt lonely!
I was such a pragmatist and non-believer, I was left totally confused and bewildered by some of the writings I first came across in this field and something like Ann-Marie’s book would have grabbed me, I know that. This book, although very sensitively written, is also light-hearted, fun and extremely insightful. It is written by someone who has definitely ‘been there, done that and got the ‘T’ shirt’, as the saying goes. I will definitely give this as a ‘gift’ to anyone coming to me for support when beginning their Spiritual Journey, or, already on it and needing a gentle reminder.

This book actually contains two stories, the first story is the very interesting and fascinating journey of spiritual awakening taken by the author herself. This is written very honestly and refreshingly and she does not hesitate to let the surprise and at times pain show through. The second story is a companion or guide on how to begin one’s own path towards spiritual awakening. Her sound advice is given for various situations, also some affirmations or ‘prayers’ are presented. Overall, I found both stories interesting and very authentic. The tone is gentle, very relatable and never condescending. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars Brigitt Amthor (Educator) NetGalley

For me your path to God and your book is an inspiration on many levels and such a beautiful invitation to live in the Presence, to get out of my way and surrender all, which I perceive to be “me”, to God. Your life experiences, which you describe in the book, deeply resonate with me, and reading about them brought tears to me and at the same time filled my heart with joy seeing how God has lovingly been guiding you on your path…and even when it was challenging and hard, it all has been a part of coming home to One Truth…it always is. My life experiences have been showing me again and again that when we start living in surrender and daily communion with God, having our heart open to Love and letting go of our ego mind, which is always trying to be in control, everything flows and unfolds in ways that we may not have imagined. And your book has been a wonderful example and an inspiration of how to do that and live a life guided by God. I am grateful from my heart for it, I know that it will be a guiding Light for so many.

Alina Mihailova – (Scientist) from Vienna

“ I just wanted to say a really big Thank You for your gorgeous book and the lovely dedication. I have very much enjoyed it and it was just what I needed to read at the moment to keep me going. Your book is full of absolute gems. It has made sense of the stages of SA that I have already gone through and illuminated those still to come. I am sure that I will keep dipping into it in the years to come.”

The Ripple of Awakening. A Mighty Companion of the Spiritual Awakening Journey


What you can expect from The Ripple of Awakening

My book is about a spiritual awakening, what that means and looks like from the human perspective. It explores the highs, the lows, the commonalities, the phases and the stages and ways in which the reader can support themselves. It is real, raw, authentic, at times funny, certainly inspiring and full of hope.

I candidly walk the reader through my own spiritual awakening journey and share how my life fell apart and how the egoic persona of ‘Ann-Marie’ had to dissolve before I could find deep peace, love and acceptance. I intersperse transcripts of interviews from others who have been through their own awakening too, which shows the diversity of this profound experience.

I take the reader’s hand and walk them step by step through the stages of their own healing journey and offer ways that can inspire them, with practical suggestions and practices, such as prayer, meditation, self-enquiry, self-care, self-expression, forgiveness, inner child healing and addiction.

At the heart of the book is a flushing out of the reader’s relationship, or lack of relationship, with God. I reveal how I went from a complete non-believer and came to eventually work for the big guy upstairs, being guided to become a Multi Faith Minister. I endeavour to de-funk the ego’s construct of God and inspire the reader to wake up to the love, peace, guidance and joy that is waiting for them through their connection with the God of their own understanding.

Basically, this book is the book I craved when my life felt apart and, in a way, it is a gift to myself. I pray that you find it a gift on your path of awakening too! The main themes and topics of the book are:

*The common signs that indicate you are awakening
*The phases and stages
*Identifying the difference between the ego (form) and Spirit (true self)
*Inspiration to guide you and illuminate the darkness
*Building a spiritual practise to keep you connected to Source
*De-funking God
*How to reach out for the right help
*Ways to express yourself in an authentic and transparent way
*Awareness of the importance of inner child healing
*The mind / body connection
*Looking at addiction and co-dependant behaviour
*Quantum Forgiveness – the key component to true happiness
*The meaning of Love and healthy relationships
*Saying YES to fun, joy and happiness (your natural state of being!)
*Stepping forth on the path with faith and trust
*Sharing your purpose and following your bliss
*Resources to help and support you as you continue on your journey home
*Owning the TRUTH of who you are
*Interviews from other mighty companion who have stepped onto their awakening path whom share insights on how they were transformed and embraced their own awakening journey from pain and suffering to inner peace and authentic happiness
