What I’ve Been Up to Lately

by | Feb 5, 2017 | Books

Dear Reader,

Many of you have been asking what I’ve been up to lately and I’m thrilled that as 2017 gets underway, I do have exciting news to share!

I’ve just sent my newest book off to the printer! It’s called The Alchemy of Illuminated Poetry®—Seven Steps to Your Personal Gold and will be published in June 2017.

I created The Alchemy of Illuminated Poetry® process as part of my own inner work and had been doing it as a daily practice for years, without realizing that others might want to learn it and do it as well. It was my dear friend and calligraphy teacher, DeAnn Singh, who encouraged me to teach it and write a book about it. Now I can’t wait to share this with everyone! It’s a mystical, magical process for self-transformation and healing. It’s nothing like your English teacher’s poetry—which I can promise even if I happened to have been your English teacher way back when! Alchemy is all about transformation, and this book walks you through this process for whatever insights, personal growth and change you seek. You will draw in ways you never imagined, write words you didn’t know you were thinking, elicit answers to dilemmas you have not found before, and if you wish, connect with your inner, Higher Self.

Right now, for just a preview of what this is all about, here’s a drawing I did with my left (non-dominant) hand one day when I was trying to understand the origin of a toothache for which the dentist could find no organic cause. My left hand started drawing teeth in the center of the circle, or mandala, but the teeth turned into eyes. Hmmm… what could my intuitive brain be trying to tell me?

In the coming months I’ll be sharing some of the poems and drawings I’ve done using this process. Stay tuned…

Very best wishes,
Xianna Michaels
