When Shaeah Love finished a week-long meditation she had a stunning moment of clarity.
“When I came out I realized it was time,” Love said. “There was a voice that said you need to write a book.”
Love had dreamed of writing a book for years, but it wasn’t until her enchanted episode more than two years ago that she realized the time was right.
“There was a deeper calling that awoke within me that I was able to connect with,” Love said.
After two years of weaving her adventures, heartbreaks, moments of loss and confusion together, Love released her first book, From My Heart To Yours, this past June.
“It is a year in my life recounting my experiences, life challenges, life blessings,” Love said. “The whole intention is to share … about my experience and my journey of healing and transformation.”
On Friday (May 8), Love will be reading excerpts from her book, From My Heart To Yours at the Vault Café. The event will also feature a musical performance by songstress Theda Phoenix.
From My Heart To Yours details Love’s personal journey to discover and live an “authentic life” through mix of poetry and storytelling.
“It is about really getting in touch with my soul and what is my soul’s calling,” Love said. “For the last 10 years it has been my intention to live authentically and the big part of that journey was unraveling all the layers imposed by society.”
Love, who has battled with depression and provides a variety healing and meditation options through her company Aloha Love Heals, hopes her book inspires people who are struggling in their personal lives, whether it be with mental health or anything else.
“There is such a stigma to mental health issues and depression,” Love said. “There is this thing that we have to hide it because of that shame and I want to break down that stigma and bring a normalcy to the struggle so that people can reach out and get help and not feel like they have to hide and pretend.”
Love reads Friday at 7 p.m. A donation of $10 is required.
