From Shadows to Light
my journey to finding emotional & spiritual peace through betrayal, grief, and loss
A story of triumph over tragedy that will inspire you to move from blame to accountability. From victim to victorious.
Australian born psychic medium and counsellor Ros McMaster's memoir came about after a series of tragic life events forced her to question the relationships around her - none more so than the relationship she had with herself. At the age of 54, her 30-year marriage to Andrew ends, leaving her to deal with years of suppressed anger. One year later, she is diagnosed with a rare form of stage four bowel cancer. The very next year, her karmic journey with Andrew comes to a head after he too is diagnosed with cancer and passes away - 5 weeks after his diagnosis. With her background in psychology, she becomes both counsellor and client in this deep psychoanalysis of her entire life. Exposing and understanding her shadows, and Andrews', which are rooted in a complex web of co-dependence, addictions, deep-seated fear of abandonment, and a complete lack of self-worth. Ros takes the reader with her as she begins healing the past and taking responsibility for the role she played in her years of unhappiness.
While Andrew's personality, and the motives for his behaviour, are clearly revealed, the sensitive topic of his passing has been treated in a masterly fashion, added to by the loving impressions of his children in their moments of grief.
Ros's writing appeals to both the emotions and psyche in a compelling and cohesive story taking the reader on a transformational journey to letting go of past conditioning, false beliefs, self-doubt, and fear, giving thought-provoking tips and tools for beginning your own journey to healing.
