Title: Interviewed by God – A Journey to Freedom

Author Name: Beth Banning

Author Bio:

Beth Banning is a best-selling author, inspirational speaker, and spiritual catalyst who lives in California with her husband, their cat, and their six pound poodle. She was born in New York City and from a very young age could sense the feelings of people around her, felt kundalini energy running through her body, and experienced other unusual events that she didn’t understand. The well-meaning adults in her life told her she was depressed and that these experiences were just her imagination. Growing up in this cloud of ignorance and disbelief, these gifts were buried and unable to flourish and so she was left confused and lonely.

As a young adult she recognized the same sense of confusion and loneliness in others and became passionate about helping people better understand themselves and those around them. Later in life she took this passion into her work with her husband Neill and co-founded Focused Attention, Inc. She has written numerous books, co-created the Pathway to Personal Freedom, and the Art of Conscious Connection Seminar Series.

After many years of integrating this consciousness shifting work into her own life and teaching it to others, she experienced a profound reconnection with God that turned her life upside down. This radically changed the way she perceives the world and functions in it. Beth now lives her life guided by her inner source of divine wisdom. She is committed to helping others discover this for themselves and fully experience the essence of who they truly are.

Book Description: 

Interviewed by God is an account of Beth Banning’s journey of spiritual awakening—her conscious connection with God and the lessons she’s learned along the way. From a very young age, Banning experienced phenomena that could only be called extraordinary: she’s received messages from spirit animals, felt kundalini energy awaken in her, and experienced dimensional shifts in her awareness that have allowed her to witness what only a few have seen. She was visited by totem animals, took ritualistic baths, and visited shamans and healers; she experienced ecstatic states and received messages; her ego mind began to battle against her higher mind. As she experienced her spiritual journey, a small voice within guided her. With doubt as her constant companion she continued to follow her inner promptings, which led her to higher levels of truth about her connection to herself and the world and reality as we know it. Written in a format in which the author is “interviewed by God,” the book is meant to be a mirror for the reader to reflect their own experiences back to them, and a gentle guide for those who are at the precipice of an extraordinary adventure and are either scared to jump or who hunger for answers and understanding.

 

Excerpt One Interviewed by God

Chapter 2, What is REALLY Real?

Pg. 11

God: Are you ready to get going?

Beth: I’m not sure why I’m writing about any of this. Who’s going to care?

God: There are many people who are having experiences similar to yours and they’re embarrassed or think it’s all their imagination and are not allowing these experiences to blossom. There are others who are right at the precipice of these extraordinary, life-changing experiences, but they are pushing them away. These people need to know they’re not alone and what they’re experiencing is actually more real than what they thought was true.

Beth: They need to know that there is more to life than they are told about, is that it? They need to know that the world is much richer and more wonderful than they ever imagined.

God: Yes, it’s time for people to know just how much more there is to life. You’ve already begun the process of transformation, and your experiences can help to guide them. I’ve heard you say you have had many unusual experiences. What do you mean by this?

Beth: Over the last four years, many things have happened to me that are outside the realm of ordinary human life. They come in different forms. I may feel them, hear them, or see them, but they are nothing like my previous day-to-day existence. Research has showed me that these types of experiences are not completely uncommon.  On one hand, knowing that others have had similar experiences helped me at times when I thought I was going crazy. On the other hand, I mostly found that saints, eccentric geniuses or gurus in India were the ones having these experiences. There were only a few stories involving ordinary people like me.

God: So what has changed in your life over the last few years?

Beth: In short, I have gone from wanting to know everything, understand everything and control everything in my life, to a place of peacefulness and acceptance to a degree that I’ve never known. I don’t mind now when plans change, or someone else thinks they have a better idea about how to do things. And I don’t have to agree with or understand exactly what someone is talking about in order to hear what they’re saying and be able to empathize with them. My whole being has shifted. As I continue to have these unique experiences, they change me and how I perceive the world in incredible ways. I’ve gone from an almost compulsive need to “know” everything to an acceptance of just what’s going on in the moment, and a sense of calm trusting about the future.

Cecile Monique is an up-and coming independent Gothic/Symphonic metal artist from Canada. A young, rising star who brings a modern voice to an established genre in the European rock scene, Cecile Monique represents a new generation of female metal artists, breathing new life into the style and attracting a new generation of listeners in North America and beyond. Continuing in the legacy of seasoned female-fronted acts such as Delain, Tarja, Within Temptation and Nightwish, Cecile Monique’s contemporary edge and distinctly North American sensibility provides an excellent representation of the Gothic/Symphonic style in Canada. A classically-trained vocalist, composer and arranger, Cecile Monique’s singular creativity, diverse musical influences, and her fresh, youthful style have provided the fuel to create the distinctive fusion of rich vocals with modern, innovative instrumentation that exist together in perfect harmony and have become her signature, genre-bending sound.

In addition to her impressive musical talent, Cecile’s cosmopolitan personality and multicultural roots (half European and half Hispanic) also broaden her appeal to an international audience; Cecile is fluent in several languages and has recorded and performed songs in English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Czech, and Latin.

In 2010, Cecile Monique was awarded the prestigious FACTOR New Talent Award in support of her self-titled EP release featuring three of her original songs recorded at Metalworks Studios, Canada’s #1 recording studio. In 2013, Cecile was selected for the national Wacken Metal Battle competition and was one of only a select few female-fronted acts in contention to represent Canada at Wacken. Together with her band, Cecile Monique’s powerful, distinctive musical style and charismatic stage presence firmly cement this up-and-coming artist in the international ‘watch list’ for the new generation of Gothic Rock/Symphonic Metal artists.
