This is the first giveaway I have ever done on my blog, it is a thank you for following me and my blog and commenting and supporting me.

The book is precious so precious and soooo deep that I really want it to go to somone who will love it, understand it and appreciate the gift of the wisdom in this book.  For me this is a gift from  my heart to yours and it is so precious,  I want it to be read, experienced to be life changing and loved and re-read.

Because I think it is so precious, I include an audio of me reading bit of it.  Now, you have to forgive the sound quality, my terrible terrible reading and my voice.  This is the first time I have ever done this and I don’t know how to edit.  I sound so young , my voice is awful, but trust me I am not as young as I sound I even have a few grey hairs (eek – lol). 

Anyway, if you go past the bad sound and my voice and hear the words, then you can decide if you want this book and if you want to enter the give away.  The link works I have tried it, you might have to click it twice or something, but please hear it.  The audio is about 12 minutes long.   I am very sorry my reading is terrible  – I recorded this 3 times and it is still terrible.

  1. Hi Bella, I am not entering the giveaway as it is very difficult to send books to South Africa. I like your blog thought so I thought I would answer some of your questions. To me true happiness is spending time doing things I enjoy with the people I love. I am currently on holiday with my family making memories and it is great. I do get a bit down now and then but I am not a naturally depressed person. When I feel a bit out of sorts I play music that lifts my spirits and makes me feel happy. Unfortunately, I can’t listened to the audio as the signal at the hotel is weak. I like the quotes and happy thoughts you share on your blog. I also love your rose header. I can’t think of anything I specially don’t like. Have a lovely day, Bella.

  2. Hi Bella,
    You were right about the rules and the giveaway you did make it very extended and worthy of the book, because my time is short with studies, I will listen to the audio and answer everything that makes sense to me and that I have earned answers to, if I don’t answer it is either because I don’t comprehend the question or because I don’t have an answer because I don’t lol 🙂 I will have these answers down below:

    a. True happiness? Is what you make it, it is what comes to you when you aren’t depending on materialistic things.
    b. where do you find your happiness? in positive thinking, inner peace and good.
    c. how do you manage your waste thoughts now? i don’t currently, haven’t really figured it out yet
    d. my thoughts on the divine? this answer is too complicated for me to write out.. I don’t really have an easy way to explain this.
    e. A book like this would give me a different perspective and teach me something new and allow me to self discover what the meaning of life might be for me.
    h. who is the jewel? from what I gathered, either god or the higher power
    i. I like that your blog is always something positive and I follow because positive people are something good to surround yourself around.
    j. to be honest I have never looked over your blog in order to critique it in a way that I would assume something negative. But if I must answer, I will say that probably that sometimes it is very in depth and for someone like me, it can be hard to comprehend everything.. all the time because my brain is weird
    k. I just give in and sink back into a little hole of dispair
    l. Many things have made me unhappy, to list them all would take more time than I have but the majority of things that make me unhappy are the ones i have no control over and that is why it burns me more. I haven’t found my way to get out of it, I just live and hope sometime down the path or road I find some joy someplace.

    Good luck to all those that compete in this giveaway!

    • Hi Shay-lon, Can you give me an example of what you might find confusing /in depth on my blog, I just want to understand a bit better, because I think I might actually have a better book for you, that you can by either on Amazon or Another website, which might ease you into some of the concepts that I talk about on my blog, in a more digestible manner. Because I am a bit concerned this book might just send you over the edge – you know what I mean. There are easier books to read than this one. Not to say this is not an easy read, but, I fear /worry you might struggle with it and then you won’t benefit should you win the book. So, if you can possibly expand a bit more on what you find difficult then I can try and find more suitable books for you that you can buy. Regards Bella

      • Yes, Bella. I guess I don’t fully understand meditation and all the vocabulary that might come with, I don’t understand the full purpose and I don’t understand how it goes one in one with our world and a high power. Secondly, I’m always confused when it comes to all things spiritual.. To be honest, when stuff like that isn’t in lamens terms, sometimes it can go over my head. Although I try to understand. It isn’t that your whole blog is confusing and I can’t understand anything you say, it is the fact that I want to wrap my head around everything but sometimes it all comes at me at once and I don’t understand everything right away. I enjoy your blog and meditations, no complaints from me.. I just like when things are put into perspective for myself. If this makes sense. If not, then.. I guess I failed hahha

      • No you have not failed, no such thing as failure. We understand things over time and how much effort we put into it. You will see that with your current studies how much you learnt that you didnt undetstand.

        So you havent failed, you are on a learning process.

        But i do think this book will send you over the edge🤔, so i recommend something easier you can buy for yourself and i wont put you into the hat for the giveaway. I hope that is okay and you get my reasoning. I actually have a better book in mind for you.

        Currently at work i will give details later.

        I hope you don’t mind or feel bad for me not putting you in the hat… honestly from what you just said i think it will send you over the edge..

        Regards bella

  6. Hey thanks so much Bella for thinking about me and I am sure the book will be awesome cause I love reading such books of motivation and spiritual knowledge. Your audio is not very clear but an awesome post. Your questions are very good and for me happiness is making others happy and living in the present moment that is so beautiful and to understand myself first and foremost and letting go of things not wanted. Meditation is very good and one must take out a few minutes to oneself and see who we really are cause we are not this body but a Soul who has to take forms in order to know who we really are. We are Eternal and One with the Ocean and when we realize that we are not the drop in the Ocean but the Ocean then we will be just that. Thanks once again dear. Have a great day and I would love to read the book.

  7. You have a beautiful voice Bella! ❤ ❤ I will answer your questions soon, I’m writing them at the moment but I do want to give you proper answers so will take a bit of time putting it together – I’m also prone to writing long answers which I’m trying to stop myself from doing, lol. I hope everyone else who enjoys your posts will take the chance to enter, the book sounds wonderful, very enlightening and I’m sure someone will benefit greatly from it, and I hope you enjoy doing this giveaway and keep enjoying your blogging ❤ ❤ Will post something soon (today/tomorrow)

    • I’ve just written them all down and will post them now, hope I made sense in the answers and don’t sound all loopy (it’s late here and I start to make less sense when it’s late, lol) But I’m not sure I should officially enter the giveaway, give the book to someone who would really benefit from learning it (not that I wouldn’t lol) I’d still give you my answers either way 🙂
