About the author
Five years ago, the illusion of Melinda's once perfect looking life was shattered instantly by an advanced breast cancer diagnosis. As a devoted wife and adoring mother of three little girls, the threat of dying and the thought of having to leave the lives of her beloved young family was pure torture and terrifyingly real. The truth was, Melinda's life had been far from perfect. On the inside, Melinda had been depleted and pretending for a long time. She had become fear based and separate from her true self as she focused on everyone and everything but herself and forty-one years of unprocessed negative emotions. As Melinda struggled through a double mastectomy and months of chemo and radiation, she began to find her only comfort and relief in what she can now identify as meditation and soon found herself communing with her higher self and surrendering to Spirit. This allowed her to see that her dis-ease was actually a Divine invitation by Source to reconnect with her infinite and authentic self and to awaken and remember who we all truly are. As Melinda reclaimed her health and finally emerged from the hell that she now calls her "faith walk", she carried with her the knowledge that on the other side of suffering, darkness, and even death, is everlasting life, love, freedom from fear and doubt, oneness and true healing. It has become Melinda's mission to share this message with the world. Melinda's first book is filled with mystery, mysticism and hope as she shares her quest to reclaim her health, wellbeing and ultimately her connection to Source. It is proof for all of us that healing anything is possible, and is riveting testimony to the power of truth, love and faith. Melinda lives in West Michigan and is available for both private and group healing sessions. Melinda Malone is an author, inspirational speaker, energy healer and teacher at the Deborah King Center.
