Does it take a miracle to save a woman who has lost everything? Does God really step in and carry those who cannot or will not for the moment carry themselves? Are the prayers we scream to the heavens in our most desperate hour of need really answered?

The answers can be found in the remarkable journey of the woman who went from laying curled up on the bathroom floor praying for God to take her home, to the woman who now believes that faith in the Divine is just the beginning of this incredible adventure we call life. It is the story that takes you from a jaded and misdirected view of faith, to having an unshakable faith in God, Humanity and finally in Self and Knowing without question that all of these things are irrevocably intertwined. After losing the majority of her immediate family to illness, losing her marriage to dis-ease, losing her freedom to the physical powers that be and finally her health to a broken spine and a broken heart there seemed no other option but a graceful exit… The Spirit however, did not agree with the flesh and her request for death was bluntly denied. In one final act of desperation she lay awake late one night and cried to the heavens ‘I give up – show me the way – lead me and I will, without question, follow’. The next day she woke up, quit her job and two weeks later she stepped onto a plane, leaving her beloved daughter and her life behind, to land in the Philippines where life as she had never dreamed it would begin. Niki Norlock is now ready to talk openly about the true story behind Truth – My Synchromystic Journey; revealing a side of herself she has far too long denied. In a bold, bare all tribute to those who stood behind her on her journey she is shedding light on the very real places and people in the book that was originally written as a fiction. A life no longer denied, Truth is just the first step on a monumental climb to health and happiness. She now lives secure in her understanding of self-worth. Happily residing in her dream home in the Appalachian Mountains of Quebec Canada with her husband and their family, enjoying a successful run as a co-host on the International Podcast Everyday Connection she is now ready to share the Truth about what it takes to not only choose to live, but to choose to love living when all you can do in the moment is lay on the floor and wish for death. Your Truth will set you free…

What was the inspiration for the story?
The inspiration came from desperation, in 2009, I was living a life without purpose, without direction. I was broken, in mind, body and spirit. So… I prayed for guidance, though at the time I didn’t have any faith in the Divine, I prayed because I had nobody left to ask for help.
Once the way I was pleading for help changed (I had been asking for signs and guidance without offering anything) my prayers were answered, the guidance and the signs came…. I followed where they lead me, and wrote down the experience as I went. I have been following and writing ever since. And now… my faith is absolutely unshakable.
What is the key theme and/or message in the book?
That we all have within us the power to change our lives. We all have within us the power to connect with the Divine. We are ALL mystics, created in the image of the ultimate creator, makes us ALL, ultimate creators. It is choice, faith and a willingness to change that lead me from a life of misery to a life I love. Though each journey will be unique (as it should be as we are all unique individuals) the journey is worth taking. It begins when you ask for help… Ask and ye shall receive is a universal truth.
What do you hope your readers take away from this book?
I hope readers are inspired to begin their own journey to happiness and freedom. I hope they embrace the unknown and allow themselves to step out of their comfort zone and explore our world as much as possible. I believe our diversity is our biggest strength. Being willing to open our hearts and minds to other cultures and other people’s perspective offers us an opportunity to expand our awareness and enhances personal growth. I know, not everything in the book will resonate with everyone who reads it, so take from it what you need and toss the rest away. I don’t need people to believe everything (or anything) I have written. I just want to create a spark of curiosity, which inevitably leads to the burning passion to evolve.
What is the significance of the title?
As I said earlier, we are ALL mystics, all capable of using alchemy to create for ourselves (and those around us) a better life. But God (the creator, the universe – whatever term aligns with your heart) doesn’t write signs in the sky. The signs are often unique to the individual, numbers, animals, flowers, even symbols that hold significant meaning to the person taking the journey into seself. When these things appear repeatedly and frequently, they are signs that you are on the right path, confirmation that you are being guided and protected. They are called Synchronicity and they are our personal road signs meant to assist us to find our way along this road we call life.
Tell us about the process for coming up with the cover.
The cover created itself… There was no process, simply a knowing what was meant to be.
What were the key challenges you faced when writing this book?
Looking at myself in the mirror and examining the choices I had made that resulted in me living a life of pain and misery. Then, I had to find the courage within to make the changes I needed to make to set myself onto my own personal path of healing.
What was the highlight of writing this book?
Learning that I am not alone, that there is Divine presence that guides us, communicates with us, and protects us if we allow ourselves to open our hearts and minds to things we do not understand. It resulted in the rebirth of my childlike curiosity and sense of wonder, and that I think is the biggest gift anyone can receive.
