On February 19, 2007 I began working on a book, which I decided to call "The Battles of The Soul". I had been thinking about writing a book before, but every time I kept telling to myself, "You can't write and you know it, focus on something else". This time it was different. I saw a vision while meditating. I can't recall what the vision was about but I can clearly remember the name "Battles of the Soul" entering my mind. From that moment I was convinced there's no other way for me, the book had to be written.
In the beginning I started writing for myself. I believed the book could help me to resolve some of the personal challenges. I quickly realized that my desire to be heard by other people is too strong, that is why my plan changed. I wrote about 278 pages and then stopped. Something just wasn't right.
It took me another 7 years to figure out what was going on and to develop the final idea of a product - the product like no other I've ever seen before.
At 1st I felt discouraged. I didn’t seem to have the knowledge, the right tools… the money. But every time doubt built obstacles on my way, strange things happened: a hawk would fly over my head, I would meet people who dressed or look like characters from the story, somebody would start discussing issues I wanted to write about. There was one final moment, when I wanted to give up and focus on more "realistic" goals. I was in the car, driving, when I stopped on the red light I saw a car in front of me with the name of my main character on the license plate. Whether it was the Universe speaking to me, or whether it was my subconsciousness scanning the environment and letting me pay attention to the desired answers, all those signs helped me to make the final decision - to keep going, to create the product using the tools and the knowledge that I have available, as for the money - it will come when I need it.
So this is the story behind the Story.
Without revealing too much I'd like to add a few more things:
The book series opens up questions about the nature of life, our acceptance of each other , about our differences, reasons behind our choices, about our constant search of the ultimate truth.
The books, and products, associated with them, may potentially help many people to learn about neurodiversity, successfully deal with challenges and to see our environment as a self-improvement tool.
