Author Poll: Writer Yvonne Cloete wants your help with her cover

Yvonne Cloete is self-publishing a book with Outskirts Press. And she wants your help deciding her book cover.

Book Summary

See the Gift, Not the Curse, is a phrase I’ve consistently used while learning that Earth’s curriculum is indeed a fixed duality.

At first, I considered every single thing that happened in my life as a curse. I saw it as me being punished for “something” because I felt “not good enough,” abandoned and not loved.

I was in a constant state of separation, of loneliness, of fear of what others would think of me. I gave more and more of myself, being who they wanted me to be for them, so they would love me, and not abandon me.

With the help from many teachers, guides and loved ones in the natural and in spiritual form, I began to take a serious look at what I was thinking and internalizing which kept me in an external reality of prison, misery. pain and suffering.

I began to realize that everything I thought was a curse, was indeed a gift and misery changed to freedom, peace, joy, and love mostly for myself.

I share my most intimate journey with you so you could see freedom and love for yourself is possible, once you know how.
