My name is: Emma Sargent.
My book is called: The Healer: Conversations with Alex Telman.
The publication date is: January 2017.
I was inspired to write it when: I originally met Alex when I was a client during a really difficult time in my life. While having my “Total Life Planning” sessions with him (one day a week for three weeks), I had some pretty significant realizations and profound awakening moments. A massive energy shift had begun, and I realized that I needed to share the information with a wider group of people.
It's about: Everything and Nothing! The book is about a variety of topics or questions that people may come across in their life journey. Alex shared some simple truths with me that I feel we've collectively forgotten. We’re traveling down a road that is plastered with billboards and neon lights, consuming materialism and fake identities. The further down that rabbit hole we go, the more we forget about who we really are and why we chose to be born at this time, on this planet. Many people around the globe are experiencing profound awakening and spiritual shifts in their lives. This book helps to explain a lot of that at the more realistic and practical level—without getting too “woo-woo" about it.
A few energy healers who have read my book commented that they were able to feel their energies being adjusted—in the same way one might during an energetic healing session. It blew their minds! That was one of the goals I wanted to achieve when writing the book.
My hope is that readers will: be able to identify with the topics we discuss in the book and be able to take away a new piece of information. Being able to shift out of the life with which you’re unhappy and into the type of life you want is possible. It takes great courage to face the ways in which you have been sabotaging your own experience. If my book can help one person, then I feel it's a success. The book does require you to get out of your head, though. I usually tell people to just switch off and let your eyes roll over the words. You need to feel it, not think it. That's when the magic starts to happen.
My next book might be: I'm writing a couple of books at present. We are working on The Healer: Part 2, which many people have asked me for over the past year. So, it's finally happening!
The title of my autobiography would be: It's OK to Think Differently.
If I was a character from fiction, I’d be: I'm definitely a character that I’ve been working on in the dystopian faction—where fact and fiction meet. And I relate quite strongly to “The Hero” in all the work Joseph Campbell related, but myth really isn't fiction. I'm probably lurking in a George Martin story somewhere, on the back of a dragon, although I'd be happy to be Winston Smith from George Orwell's 1984. I'm probably most like Ivan Osokin from PD Ouspensy's The Strange Life of Ovan Osokin. Some people say that book was the inspiration for the movie Groundhog Day.
