—– Interview by Nicole Pyles
WOW: First of all, congratulations on your book, The Little Book of Big Knowing. What inspired you to write this book?
Michele: Thank you! I’ve always dreamed of being an author. Even when I was a little girl, I thought it would be the most wonderful thing to write a book that I could hold in my hands and share with the world, but for a long time, I didn’t know what I wanted to say. I had lots of ideas, but nothing felt solid enough to become a book.
But Spirit works in creative ways. During my meditation time, an idea dropped into my mind—a book for the woman I used to be. You see, about twelve years ago, I felt a strong call to explore spirituality. Because of my traditional religious background, this call felt foreign, and I was afraid to trust it. Back then, I could’ve used a book like The Little Book of Big Knowing to gently offer ideas and new ways of thinking that didn’t feel scary but felt encouraging and nourishing.
WOW: How inspiring is that! I love that you can read this book in any order you like. What led you to write this book in this way?
Michele: I believe that each of us should trust our own inner-guidance above all else! Reading in a random order, selecting a chapter by its title or just opening the book and turning to a page allows the reader’s inner-wisdom to gently guide them to what they’re most ready for next.
I also encourage folks to read The Little Book of Big Knowing in the same manner that it’s written—short bursts. Many of these thoughts and ideas need time to percolate in our minds. So, it’s best to read a page or two, let the ideas simmer, and then come back to the book again and again.
WOW: I completely agree! 2020 seems to render us all into a state of self-reflection. Why do you think that is?
Michele: Anytime our circumstances change on a personal or especially a global scale, it can bring up our stuff, i.e., fears, worries, anxieties, depression, hopelessness, etc. Because of the pandemic, we couldn’t distract ourselves with our standard mode of busyness. Life gave us the downtime to really explore and question what is important to each of us. The gift of the global-pause let us investigate our way of being and decide if we liked how we were living our lives. It brought up lots of questions for many folks—How do we want to spend our time? What are we tired of doing? Who do we want to spend our lives with going forward? What would we like to do differently? The pandemic has been a deep spiritual dive into reassessing how we want to be in the world.
WOW: “Global Pause” I absolutely love that! What are you working on now? What can we look forward to next?
Michele: I’m working on two more books! My next book is a guidebook for when someone is asking for answers, but their inner-wisdom seems cloudy, and they could use some concrete guidance. And, the second book is a daily devotional of sorts. Many of my clients want spirituality to be a more significant part of their life, and this book will act as a touchstone to start their day.
WOW: Oh I can’t wait! So, if you were to send a message to anyone who may read your book, what would you tell them?
Michele: I wish people could see themselves as their Soul sees them—beautiful, valuable, worthy, magnificent, unique, and exquisite. I want to foster this feeling in everyone—a combination of self-love, trusting in this benevolent Universe, and knowing the value of your existence to the whole.
WOW: How inspiring is that! Thank you so much for your time today!
