My friend (and my sister Debbie’s dear friend), world-famous medium James Van Praagh called last December to invite me, Bri, and my Mom to visit his new home here in San Diego and he offered us a reading with my sister in heaven, Debbie. This was an irresistible offer, as it’s now impossible to get private readings with James.
During the reading, Debbie kept asking me if I would write a prayer book with her. I politely declined. How in the world would he do that? We couldn’t possibly impose on James to be a daily intermediary and I didn’t have any desire to figure it out.
During the “reading” lots and lots of relatives from the other side came through and in between these lovely visits, Debbie would pop in, insisting we write a prayer book together.
Eventually, I gave in and said yes, clueless as to how this would happen.
On the drive home, Brian mentioned that he recalled Debbie talking about some prayers she had written and suggested I contact the amazing Julie Stroud, (who to this day runs The Ford Institute along with Kelly Kosow) to see if she had any of these prayers.
Julie, who was Debbie’s right hand everything for years, immediately wrote back and said not only did she have the prayers, she had an entire unpublished manuscript entitled Your Holiness: Discover the Light Within, and it was attached to the email.
Debbie wrote a prayer book and I never knew?
How was that possible?
I immediately read the book – astounded at the wisdom, the beauty, and the brilliance of it.
And, then I called her editor at Harper One, who admitted that he had been feeling guilty for the past several years because he knew that she always wanted to write a prayer book but he talked her out of it.
Well, guess what?
He bought the book and it will be published on March 6th with an introduction from Marianne Williamson.
Here’s what Deepak Chopra has to say about Your Holiness:
“Debbie Ford was a spiritual sister, colleague, and teacher to me. This book, discovered as her writings after her passing is an extraordinary journey to higher consciousness. Read it, absorb her insights and you may see the world fresh, vibrant and holy and as if for the first time.”
In two days, this Thursday ONLY, for 24 hours, the e-book version will be on sale for $4.99 as a pre-order.
I will be sending out an email on Thursday with the subject line: Debbie Ford’s Lost Manuscript if you would like to take advantage of it. (The normal retail price of the e-book will be $11.99.)
Wishing you love, laughter and magical kisses,
