Many of us go through our entire lives giving and receiving gifts, often unaware we are doing so. Jonathan’s goal was to give the gift of service—from his dreams of a military career to the hospitality industry to civil service and finally to serve anyone suffering from the effects of addiction. Jonathan passed away on May 4, 2010, yet his spirit lives with us today.
At this moment, he might say,
“My gift to you is awareness. I want to make you aware of what it is like to have a severe addiction problem.
If you are suffering from addiction, ask yourself, ‘Do I want to follow Jonathan’s path? Shouldn’t I dedicate myself to changing and becoming the loving and trustworthy person that I know, deep inside me, I am?’
If you are a family member, I present to you how my family tried to assist me. The heartache that I caused them was overridden by the spirit of faith, hope, and love that they shared for me. They disagreed and argued over what course of action to take to heal me, and they became angry and impatient with me many times. But in the end, I know they love me.
To those of you who have never experienced addiction in your family, I present the gifts of compassion and non-judgment. This disease is difficult to overcome, and has become a disease of epidemic proportions in our country. I ask that you step back and try to understand what these people are going through.
I once wrote, ‘Where there is life, there should also be love.’ ”
Nothing could be truer.
Divinely Touched is a story of personal transformation. It chronicles Mary’s spiritual awakening, how she was divinely saved, led, and transformed. From the depths of depression, from battles with physical ailments for which the medical profession had no explanations, from being led into worlds she never knew existed, she survived being taken to the underworld. She was guided and healed by light workers, shamans, and avatars from this world and the spirit dimension and led on a journey of personal, physical, mental, and spiritual healing. Mary’s experience, like that of a caterpillar when transformed into a beautiful butterfly, is one that will inspire, enlighten, and transform your life as well. Dr. Dave uses science, research, and “knowledge of the ages” to explain what Mary experienced and open worlds to the reader that they may never have imagined. Divinely Touched: Transform Your Life can, in fact, do just that.
“With painstaking detail, Mary describes her descent into darkness and her triumphant return. Like Margaret Starbird, in The Goddess in the Gospels, who also has a spiritual awakening that took her into the realms of psychosis, Mary describes a similar personal descent into darkness before bursting forth into spiritual awareness. Inside you will find a compelling story that may help you or someone you love.”
—Maureen St. Germain, author of Beyond the Flower of Life & You Are the Genie in the Bottle
“The world is waiting for this powerful story of good vs. evil. Mary’s story is amazing, compelling, eye-opening, and courageous. Her faith has carried her through the darkness into the light. She is God’s instrument and truly a living expression of divine light flowing forth into the world. Divinely Touched is a must-read, and you won’t want to put it down. It will blow your mind!”
—Pat Hastings, Author of Simply a Woman of Faith: How to Live in Spiritual Power and Transform Your Life
“Mary’s amazing story will capture your interest and touch your heart. You will be inspired to move forward on your own journey of awakening.”
—Andrew Oser, author of How Alternation Can Change Your Life; Finding the Rhythms of Health and Happiness
“Divinely Touched is a wonderful book that documents an impassioned and heartfelt account of the pitfalls and triumphs of personal awakening.”
—Dr. Michael Sharp, author of The Great Awakening, The Book of Light, The Book of Love, The Dossier of Ascension
