    Entertaining, insightful, a courageous reveal and gutsy journey. Well done, Christy.

    Quote Update: So far I have received one new review! Yay! So far 257 books have been downloaded ... if only my non-free days could be like this ...lol . I have also moved to #4 in free books memoir something something section. This is cool to see but unfortunately Amazon changed its algorithms a while back and no longer ounts free books in the overall ranking :/ . Probably due to complaints from the big publishing houses as it allowed the little guys to get ahead. But oh well ... just got to keep on inching forward.

    Here are the reviews so far:
    Was just checking and went to amazon again (also intrigued by all this Amazon book publishing business... o.O!) but I only see the free digital copy... how come I don't see the paperback version? I am pretty sure I thought I saw it the first time? O.o?

    Flash glad to hear you got one

    Thanks Paula . Pleased to hear you enjoyed it!

    Sigma I tell you - you really have to love writing to make it a worthwhile pursuit. As of now just over 500 copies have been downloaded for free ... this is massive compared to my sales to date! But then reviews (from a random stranger who read the book-- maybe someone from this site) ... like this make it worthwhile:

    Quote I love this book! Christine's journey offers everyone an exploration of their own discovery. It's like a guided tour for our own profound experiences that some or most of us may have similarly experienced but never had a dictation or graphic explanation of. Christine does a heroic effort with this. I am grateful for this story and feel that it should be on my bookshelf close to PKD and or Anton Wilson. She is a pro!
    I started with 3 five star reviews and now have 9 five stars so in baby steps I tread forward .

    Thanks everyone ... and yes if you have a moment please leave a review...

    Edit to add: Yes I notice on the link you posted there was not a listing to the paperback ...l but then on the one I follow there is: http://www.amazon.com/Jump-Into-Blue..._154793011_f_4

    But then on your link it says I am listed as #1 in the personal transformation free section Yay

    LOVE ALLways c

    Yes, for starters, I purchased a hard copy. I have an envelop with one liner scribbles all over it. Back and front. I added them as I read because I planned to leave a review.

    My pleasure, Christy. I accidentally added the review under Kindle Edition rather than paperback. No harm done. The reviews are complied from both.

    Here’s to continued love of family, and success both in authorship and Mysticalchemyarts.

    Love,
    Paula

    Enfoldedblue, Christy, I cannot NOT write again my gratitude for you putting into words such truth for us to recognize in our own lives. You have lived, and been able to transcribe into words, a pattern or archetype that we ourselves have touched upon, but have likely not slowed down enough to frame into mental conceptualizations and clothed with words.

    And I am only 60% of the way through your book...

    Hi Meggings ... glad to hear you are enjoying the ride. I have been amazed at how many people tell me they really relate to what i wrote. At the time so few people understood ... my family still doesn't .. but thats ok.

    I got another comment on Amazon ... it made me laugh. Felt like it was someone from here but i dont know.
    thanks all LOVE ALLways, c

    There's a story, which I can't seem to find right now, told by either David Icke or David Wilcock, maybe in one of their books. It talks about a woman who starts having some sort of health crisis at home, maybe a partial stroke. It has the effect of altering her perception and she starts perceiving the world in a weird way. Her hands look like claws, and the numbers on the phone don't make any sense, but somehow she dials for help. The person's voice on the other end of the phone sounds like complete gibberish.

    This is what I thought of when I read the part in the book where you were doing your most heavy meditations, and you couldn't make sense out of what your friends and family were saying to you.

    Really awesome book, thanks for sharing!

    Hi friends I need some advice,

    I was discussing JUmp Into the Blue on an authors forum and there seemed to consensus that I should change my blurb. Most felt it was too vague. Here's the new one so far:

    Quote Divine magic or madness? Heroine or fool?
    A true story

    In this real life account that begins with a playful Ouija session, a young Christy finds herself swept into a mysterious, surreal world governed by magic and synchronicity. From the grungy streets of Montreal, to rainbow gatherings, sleeping atop a Mayan Pyramid and participating in First Nation sweat lodge ceremonies, Christy explores both physical and ethereal worlds and awakens to levels of consciousness that rock her entire belief system.

    In this layered story told authentically from the heart, the author challenges her readers to evaluate their own understanding of reality. Packed with wisdom and spiritual insight, this wild, enchanting journey, detailing incredible highs and terrifying lows, is sure to transport you beyond your comfort zone, but leave you wanting more.

    Warning: this book may result in deep personal transformation.

    Thanks so much Runningdeer! I find it incredibly challenging to condense the book down to a few lines. All the authors on the authors forum felt it was too vague. But then on the FB Jump Into the Blue page the people who actually read said they liked the vagueness ... so you can't win. Still working on it. But your contribution will help RD. Thanks xx

    Hi Everyone,

    I have shared bits and pieces of what is in my book, Jump Into The Blue, with members over the years. I always knew it was something I 'had' to write, but for so long I just couldn't do it. Anyway finally the time was right and it poured out. Please feel free to share the link with friends .

    Also if you enjoy the story please leave feedback on Amazon

    Thank you, christy



    Jump into the Blue

    Divine Magic or Madness? Heroine or Fool?

    A breathtakingly beautiful, at times disquieting, and occasionally terrifying journey to the outer reaches of reality.

    Beginning with a playful Ouija session, an eighteen year old Christy realises that reality might not be as straightforward as her rational western upbringing has led her to assume. As she opens to a cascade of subtle energies these forces increasingly influence her perception until she finds herself in a wild, enthralling space governed by magic and synchronicity.

    As her consciousness expands and revelations abound, the socially constructed version of herself crumbles away. Immersed in the surreal mystical world of the blue, Christy believes she is on the verge of uncovering the holy grail of existence. But when her dreamy path unexpectedly transforms into a living nightmare, she learns the true implications of flying so high.

    enfoldedblue/Christy, I absolutely LOVED your book, Jump Into the Blue!!! What an amazing journey!!

    I want to thank you, sincerely, for sharing it. It is spellbinding! I didn’t want it to end.. I savored it, reading one to a few chapters before going to sleep each night. I could hardly wait until bedtime when I could settle in with the book for more of your daring exploits and deeply thought-provoking insights!

    Jump Into the Blue is such an engaging ride, I felt that I was right there with you the entire time. I think you beautifully captured the starlit and synchronous magic that wound its way through your late teens and early twenties.

    The breathtaking heights and the terrifying depths that you fearlessly explored are a testament to your courage and, ultimately, your great wisdom.

    I say this in all honesty. You are a gifted writer and I am grateful that you’ve made this work available. I would love to see more!!

    With love and deepest respect,

    Ken
