-- Man Contemplates His Own Death in Paranormal Fantasy
On the brink of suicide, Nate discovers that his family's spiritual Mayan history can make anything possible.
In the supernatural novel, The Bearing Stone, Nate Bearing works with his father as a stone cutter and sculptor at their monument company, Bearing Stone and Son, Inc. When the elder Bearing dies in an accident, Nate goes into such a deep depression that he contemplates suicide. Nate's grandfather steps in to help Nate move through his grief using Mayan healing. His grandfather also teaches Nate how to use his own spiritual gifts.
This timeless story looks at the impact of trauma on a person, how important it is to heal, and how the acceptance of one's spirituality can lead to embracing whatever life brings.
Says the author, "I was motivated to write this book because of my own experiences in life. Like most people who have experienced trauma and grief, we either deal with it or bury it. I have dealt with the effects of trauma and loss in my life. I chose to accept help from others who led me through it, leading to a life of deep empathy for others. Through my clinical work, I have witnessed their psychic pain, trauma, and loss, hoping that I have made a difference with people's lives."
