Overview

A Mother’s Courage to Awaken tells a story about the love and loss of a child—and the healing quest it initiated. On her search for inner peace, Paula Petry, PhD looks to re-emerging ancient methods that nurture positive emotional health, mental wellness, and spiritual well-being.

A story about death and resurrection. What does this mean? To nurture a life? And what if that life is your own? When Dr. Petry loses her daughter Alexandra, she looks for ways to connect with loved ones in the afterlife. Along her journey, she encounters a literal and figurative resurrection, a transcendence of time and space, and a life transformed beyond whatever was imagined possible.

Emotional health and mental wellness from the other side confronts grief, love, and loss with holistic practices and alternative health medicine. Inside, you’ll find healing modalities outside of traditional medicine like sound healing, plant medicine, Akashic Records, shamanism, and healing mantras. With these ancient methods and different forms of energy medicine, join Dr. Petry to:

  • Re-discover the power of prayer, intention, and the imagination
  • Re-direct our thoughts to what we want rather than what we don’t want
  • Relinquish the illusion of control
  • A Mother’s Courage to Awaken speaks to women wishing to awaken to their inner truth and power, and readers of Signs From The Afterlife, Messages from Above, Many Lives, Many Masters, and My Son and the Afterlife.

  1. Paula Petry has written a book for our times. In this period of radical uncertainty, we are fortunate to have the opportunity to share Paula’s intellectual, emotional, lifelong journey, replete with both unanticipated sadness and unplanned opportunity. We travel with her as she finds ways time after time courageously to turn the sadness learning, growth, healing, evolution and contribution. Paula’s is a real story, inspiring in itself, but also a parable for the possibilities for each of us, at any stage of life, faced with any challenge, to create and renew.

  1. “Here is a story that touches every step — indeed, the very soul — of a life’s honest journey. Moments of pain and joy and lifelong learning are captured beautifully. This is, above all, a story of love. What courage it took to tell this story.”

    David Lawrence Jr., retired publisher of the Miami Herald and chair of The Children’s Movement of Florida.

 

  1. “Paula’s walkabout through this life will be familiar territory to many readers as we witness her journeys through love and loss, grief and recovery, and the recreation of harmony in her soul and in her life. In the process, she restored balance in the hearts of many … and became a visionary and a modern medicine woman. This book is good medicine.
