Meet Cassy Blakemore

If you’ve read my novel, The Spirit Within, then you’ll know who this young lady is…. the main character, Cassy Blakemore! Join Cassy’s gripping journey into the unknown as she discovers deep-seated secrets and supernatural powers!

 

Who is this intriguing young lady?

She’s a mousy nineteen year old college student who’s major is in art with hopes and dreams of owning her own gallery one day. Her name is Cassandra Blakemore, but to those dearest to her, she’s affectionately known as Cassy. She tries to live a simple life with her boyfriend, Raleigh Nichols, a rugged mechanic who Cassy’s Uncle Mitch sorely dislikes, but tolerates for the love of his niece.

Raleigh, who claims he loves Cassy undeniably, soon finds comfort by delving deeper into the bottle. His insufferable alcoholism takes an unruly turn as he becomes abusive towards Cassy. It’s at this point in her life that she’s faced with her worst fears.

And as if all of this wasn’t enough, not only does she endure verbal and physical abuse, Cassy discovers a whole other side to herself that she never knew existed. Cassy starts to have premonitions, experiencing ESP right before horrible things happen. Also, supernatural abilities of levitation and telekinesis begin to show through Cassy’s newly found powers.

She’s terrified and confused. Fight or flight. She has to decide. As she moves forward, she meets new people, embraces new love with a mysterious bookstore clerk named, Drew Stevens, and learns about deep-seated family secrets that are shockingly revealed.

Cassy struggles, but finds the strength to travel down a path to empowerment. She becomes the Phoenix that rises high above the ashes of adversity. Cassy discovers The Spirit Within!

The Emergence

Life is full of wondrous possibilities that are waiting for each of us to explore. We are all unique in our own special ways. Regardless of our differences, whether they are spiritual, visual or even political, we are all powerful individuals who deserve the absolute best that life has to offer. The Universe is a magical expansion of one’s desires. Believe in yourself and great things will happen!

Three extraordinary words to live by are “Believe. Achieve. Succeed.”  because together they can be used to create the solid foundation of one’s goals. First, we must believe in ourselves in order to know our own self-worth. After we discover that, then we can move on to achieving our life’s dreams. With the right amount of hard work and determination, our goals can and will be reached. Never allow the words “I can’t”  be a part of your vocabulary for they show weakness and lack of strength. Choosing positive words in a daily routine will guarantee a positive outcome. When you believe in yourself, you can achieve ultimate greatness and by doing that, you will succeed in discovering your inner most strength to empowerment.

Energy is all around us, good and bad. Stay strong and stand for what you truly believe in. Have faith and know that the power of positive affirmation does exist.

Here’s an idea, how about finally waking up one day to a bright new future. One where happiness and positive energy paves the way. Find the strength deep down inside that empowers each one of us to listen to that inner voice that yearns so badly to be heard. The voice that’s tapped into the Universe, giving everyone that unique connection, nudging us to move forward onto something better, leaving all that is negative behind… strengthening us to rise above all the adversities that try to weigh us down. Why not be that daring Phoenix that rises high above the ashes, soaring into something greater and causing one’s dreams to blossom into a beautiful reality, allowing us to discover the spirit within.

Darkness cannot prevail when light shines!
