I invite you to join my Prison Ministry and help get spiritual books into the hands of incarcerated people.
It is not a secret that worldwide,
millions of innocent people are incarcerated.
Also it is well-known that throughout the prison system, there is much corruption. Thus, a vast overhaul is needed in the archaic way that errant (and often innocent) humans are treated behind bars.
However, the system is too big for you and me to defeat. But there are some things we can do to support inmates with their spiritual awakening.
For example, supplying spiritual material to prison libraries and inmates. There are many men and women who are spending
their prison “time” in pursuit of spiritual growth.
Let’s support them on their spiritual journey!
Books for Inmates
Prison Ministry: How it Began
In the spring of 2010, after several years of resistance, I finally sat down to “talk” with some Spirit Beings that had been nagging me for awhile. As they talked, I typed, and eventually the result became my first book, Mayan Messages: Daily Guide to Self-Empowerment.
When I finished the first draft, I went into meditation to ask about the next step. Although I fully expected to get a marketing plan, it was quickly evident that was not to be. Instead of a marketing plan, what I heard was, “If you don’t mind, will you donate this book to all of the U.S. federal and state prisons?” After I recovered from that shock, they also insisted that I include my address encouraging inmates to write for a free personal copy.
Reluctantly, I took on the assignment. It took an average of five phone calls and/or letters to each institution in order to gain permission to donate the Mayan Messages to their prison’s library. Two years later, donated copies of the book had landed in 1,100 prisons. Immediately, I began to receive requests from inmates asking for a free copy of the book. Since then, I receive letters every day requesting a free book.
Part of the proceeds from all books, services and products on this website are used to fund the Prison Ministry.
Your donation places spiritual material into the hands of inmates who are seeking higher consciousness.
Answering The Call: Inmate Collaboration Book
Recently, I received another call from “Above.”
Since I began donation Mayan Messages to prisons, I have befriended a few of the inmates. During meditation, I received the “call” to invite them to collaborate on a spiritual book for spiritual seekers. As a result, several have heeded the call. Thus far, I have received dozens of their entries. It has been interesting that not one is on the same topic! What they are sharing is inspiring and insightful!
In addition, each is submitting spiritual practices they have benefited them, such as yoga, art and meditation. They are also including names of books and resources that helped their spiritual awakening. Consequently, this information will be included as a resource guide in the book.
My role is to follow the road that was laid out with the Mayan Messages. In other words, back to the computer to edit, format, and create the book and cover. Next, each of the authors will give their final approval. Then I will contact the prisons to get permission to place them on their library shelves.
Keep the Prison Vision
in your prayers!
