"Way of the Modern Mystic"
- One Who Sees the Extraordinary in the Ordinary"
I became an ordained minister in 1987 while pregnant for my first child. I was very much involved with my church which I talk in more detail about in Embrace the BITCH Within.
I have been a contracted freelance sign language interpreter since 1996. Working with Deaf and Hard of Hearing people has been a wonderful blessing for me. I was so into my career, however, that I didn’t recognize that I was out of balance. In 2001 I was diagnosed with a fast spreading deadly form of cancer. This experience helped me to realize that there is much more to healing than just healing the body.

***** Awakening the Mystic Within,
VanVliet joins an ever-growing genre of spiritual mysticism with her book "The Way of the Modern Mystic: One who Sees the Extraordinary in the Ordinary." What makes this different, at least to this reader, is the simplicity of the language and definitions within the book.
Too often books like this contain great insight that get lost in confusing terms and rare verbiage. I found this book to be easy to read and easier to apply to my view of myself and the world around me. One of the key realizations of the book that I took away was, " We will no longer need any religious or spiritual guidance from outside ourselves, for it already reside within us."
This sentence in particular resonated within the depths of my soul as I've often struggled with the notion of spiritual guidance. I look forward to re-reading this book and continuing to awaken the mystic within.
