Orphaned Spirit - A Book of Healing from Childhoood Sexual Abuse




Welcome to the website for the book, Orphaned Spirit

My childhood was filled with abuse -- sexual, spiritual, physical, emotional, verbal -- as well as neglect and abandonment.  I became an orphaned spirit and this spirit shadowed me into my adult life, trying to sabotage any chance I had for happiness or success.

While this is the story of my childhood, it is ultimately the story of my journey to heal my orphaned spirit, which I am sure saved both my sanity and my life.

I developed tools and techniques which gave me the power to heal both myself and others.  This took many years and many forms, some of which were good, and some a waste of time and money.  If you are an orphaned spirit -- formed by abuse or ability -- as I was, I wrote this book to give you the power to heal.

Restore Your Spiritual Health

Divided into three sections, the book begins with a compilation of writings and research about the lives of my parents and grandparents, as well as my own childhood, and the influence all of this has had on my life as an adult. The second part of the book marks the beginning of my journey to healing, and the writings here express the pain and joy I experienced along the way. Finally, I share the struggles of a family member who, while incarcerated, practiced the tools I had developed to better his own life, which provided me with further insight into his own restoration of spirit.

In this heartfelt book, you’ll learn:

  • The tools and techniques for healing your orphaned spirit.
  • How to avoid self-sabotage and live a life of happiness and success
  • The development of compassion
  • The importance of validating yourself and others.

If you are an orphaned spirit because of abuse, neglect, abandonment or whatever the reason may be, this book will give you the power to heal.
