There is a big difference between seeking sympathy versus seeking understanding. When I decided to tell my story I knew it was very important to include all aspects of it because it was important to the understanding of what and how it happened. Sympathy seeking is not in my DNA. I simply do not seek or need it.
Whatever you do someone will find something to criticize about it. So I just did what I knew was the appropriate thing to do and tell it all. To understand the haunting you had to understand everything around it and leading up to it. You are going to see even more clearly why this was important when I release the special edition of Blessed are the Wicked with the Church report and analysis. When you are dealing with a haunting like this every aspect of someones life plays an important role in it. The books have described this fairly well and this is an analysis that the Church believes as well.
That is why there are things in the books which may not seem part of a supernatural book at all.The truth is these things that are actually the most important aspect of a true supernatural event. These are the things that open doors and let the monsters out to step in. I think that is important for all of us to keep this in mind during our everyday lives. If more people understand this then maybe it could help a lot more people, not just those who may be going through a supernatural type experience.
You want to do a supernatural film or television show? Then this is the message which is truly needed out there. How individual participation and acceptance of an event is directly linked to their attitude and their response to the world around them. It matters. You can help someone going through a difficult time in any situation, but unless they can accept their participation, reactions, actions and behavior in the situation it will never be truly over for them. This is really the message of my book, Blessed are the Wicked. It is about how to heal and also very much about my acceptance of personal responsibility within my own life, situation and also haunting. I think it was an important story to tell because everything about a haunting is not about being spooky. There are way more emotions, thoughts and feelings at play within the haunting than just the fear. A haunting comes with a whole package of things and unless you know the correct way to unpack it I promise you that you will end up drowning in it. I am speaking from experience.
Blessings to you all,
