The Boy & The Wind is a tale about a boy who lets his desire to conquer the wind and gain control over all the elements overshadow the power of being true to his heart. This story is true to the struggle we all go through in these times of change as we begin to find ourselves again after losing our connection to our hearts and the special connection and balance between us and our planet.
Have you ever wondered
if there is an afterlife, and if so, whether you will see everyone you have loved again;
what happens to bad people;
whether people who have died a traumatic death suffer;
whether everyone you have loved who has passed knows all about your exploits, your failures, and your triumphs; or
how to live your life to guarantee entry to the best place?
In Satnav for Your Soul, experienced medium Susan Pengelly shares with you her encounters with people who have died and who wished to remove the fear of death for those who are yet to leave their physical body.
Satnav for Your Soul is a travel guide from people who have got there ahead of you, who know the pitfalls to avoid and the road best travelled so that your journey is much easier and so that those who are waiting to meet you are pleased to see you and not wondering why you’re dragging your heels—which you’re doing because you sold your grandmother’s ring after she died and you are not sure if she knows (she knows).
If you love to laugh, to be moved, to learn something from the experiences of others—then you can do no better than to curl up on the sofa and let Satnav for Your Soul provide the map and compass for your own enlightening ultimate journey.
This is the story of my journey from a university psychology department to public mental health and private practice, and on to being a psychologist in “Indian land.” It includes, of course, the many interesting people, novel experiences, and challenging ideas I encountered along the way.
It is a story of expanding spiritual awareness and growth as a human being and the part played in that by the Chippewa/Ojibwa Indians, whose own practice of faith clearly embodies Jesus’ teachings on how to live with reverence, gratitude, humility, and grace. The discovery of their faith was an immense surprise and an unexpected joy.
Eventually I was called in dreams to Sundance in Canada, a calling that also included dancing in other ceremonies which, like the Sundance, required four days of fasting and prayer. I attempt to convey to the reader some of the learning and growth that are inevitable when one dances in a sacred arbor filled with kind souls and the Creator’s unconditional love—and yet I know full well that words merely hint at what can be learned only through experience.
When I answered the call to Sundance, who could have known that as a dancer, helper, and eventual leader I would spend the next eighteen years of my life in those sacred arbors? I was fifty-two when I first danced and a couple of weeks shy of seventy when last I dragged the buffalo skulls.
My dear wife pursued her own calling to teach children, and wound up teaching many years in a nearby Indian school. She made this journey ours by her loving constancy, faith, courage, and support. She was the first and best of the joy-filled surprises the Creator had for me when He moved me out of the university world.

Fifty-Two Weeks with God is composed of fifty-two meditations on God, God’s creation, and men and women who gave their lives for others. The book begins with New Year, the time we think of what we have done before and repent and resolve to correct ourselves. We sit in awe at God’s magnificent creation and what He has done for us. We meditate on the lives of others who felt the call to follow Christ and care for those in need. We meditate on the innocent children whose characters and beliefs we mold as we care for them by word and deed. We meditate on the spirit of God, the spirit of love and truth. We meditate on God’s promise for us to be with him in the warmth of his love for eternity if we follow His example and teaching.
