In Wrath of Leviathan, the second book of the BetterWorld trilogy, Waylee faces life in prison for daring to expose MediaCorp's schemes to control the world. Exiled in São Paulo, her sister Kiyoko and their hacker friends continue the fight, seeking to end the conglomerate's stranglehold on virtual reality, information, and politics. But MediaCorp and their government allies may quash the rebellion before it takes off. And unknown to Kiyoko and her friends, a team of ruthless mercenaries is after them and is closing in fast.


As soon as they exited the hotel, Kiyoko pulled out her comlink and tried to reach Pel and Charles via Crypt-O-Chat. They weren’t online. She left a message: Beware Inspector De Barros - Working with kidnappers!
She wished her sister was here. Waylee always knew what to do, and wasn’t afraid all the time.
Gabriel hailed a taxi and they returned to Liberdade. Hungry, they stopped for lunch at the Ichiban Bakery. It was a small place, mostly for takeout, crowded with glass-encased shelves and refrigerators full of cakes, pastries, and sandwiches. The smell of fresh-baked buns made her mouth water. A young Japanese-looking couple sat at one of the four tables, eating matcha cookies and speaking in Portuguese.
Kiyoko and Gabriel ordered thick slices of torta de frango and glasses of juice. He paid—Kiyoko was broke. “I should sell some things,” she said. “You shouldn’t have to pay for me, especially now that you’re on vacation and not getting reimbursed.”
He held up a hand. “I am happy to buy anything you need.”
They sat at the furthest of the two empty tables to the right of the door. Gabriel slid his chair so his back wasn’t to the entrance. “I like to see my surroundings,” he said.
“Do you think we’ll have more trouble?” At least they had that adaptive fiber armor beneath their shirts.
“I’m never getting caught unprepared again.” He ate a forkful of torta.
“I’m getting a cupcake afterward,” Kiyoko said.
Gabriel blinked. “I don’t know how you eat so much and stay so thin.”
“Super energy. Waylee’s the same way.” She had a bite of torta. The chicken and vegetables were flavored with garlic and tomato. She lowered her voice. “How can we find out more about this John Hill guy?”
Gabriel put his fork down and leaned forward, speaking quietly. “I thought you were going to run an image search on the Comnet.”
“That was if we got a photo. Without it, we’d get millions of matches. We don’t even know for sure he’s American.”
He nodded. “I am not trained as a detective.”
The bell on the bakery door jingled. A man in jeans and a leather coat entered. He wore a rigid plastic mask of some man she didn’t recognize. Kiyoko almost peed herself. “Gabriel!”
Another masked man followed the first, then two masked women.
If I cower, we’ll die, she thought. An invisibility spell would be ideal. Kiyoko reached into her carry bag and pulled out her smoke grenade.
The masked people whipped out pistols and submachine guns. Gabriel reached inside his outer shirt for his guns. He didn’t have his data glasses on.
Kiyoko pulled the pin of the smoke grenade and pointed it at the attackers. White smoke billowed out. She waved it, forming a dense cloud that stank of sulfur, burning metal, and chlorine.
The attackers fired, an onslaught of loud bangs. Something hard hit her in the collarbone, followed by another. A bullet whizzed past her head. People screamed. Gabriel grunted and shot back, loud rapid bangs.
The smoke grenade, still belching white, got too hot to hold. Kiyoko chucked it at the attackers and dove beneath the table.
The attackers’ masks had eye and nostril holes. Kiyoko pulled out her pepper spray gun and fired at the four shapes in the smoke, spraying from right to left at face height. The attackers screamed.
Gabriel kicked his chair at them, ran, dodged, fired on the move. Noise battered Kiyoko’s ears—rapid bangs from the attackers’ guns, thuds against the table, crashing glass all around.
Kiyoko kept spraying. She couldn’t see the attackers now through the foul smoke and tears in her eyes. Something hit her right arm just above the elbow. It burned like a blowtorch.
One of the attackers dropped, then another, although it was hard to be sure. Kiyoko ran out of pepper spray and pulled out her stun gun. It was impossible to see through the white smoke, though. She didn’t want to hit Gabriel.
The shooting stopped. Kiyoko glanced at her arm. Blood streamed from a hole in the blouse sleeve. Just below the armor, bad luck.

DIANA – THE VOICE OF CHANGE ……isn’t just another biographical account of Diana’s life, but rather it is a deeper exploration of the unique idiosyncrasies, extraordinary events, and changes of destiny that created a flow of force by which Diana evolved, transmuting from being the Peoples Princess into the Queen of Everybody’s Heart, and so to beyond her death………

It is written by the legendary Voice Coach: Stewart Pearce, who confidentially coached Diana during the last two years of her life, adding both a physical and metaphysical support to Diana’s vast transformation. This we palpably saw, as she moved from the demure and pained young woman, seen in the Martin Bashir interview, to the assured, powerful humanitarian leader witnessed in July 1997. For Diana’s voice revolutionized both the African Landmine issue, and the face of the Global Aids epidemic, and irrespective of her HRH title being removed, Diana acquired such public support that her voice of freedom almost toppled Queen Elizabeth, and exposed the anachronisms of the Windsor Household!

The book answers volatile questions such as:

Why was the marriage of a century known as a Fairy Tale?

Why was Diana the most photographed woman in recorded history?

Was Diana murdered?

Why did her incandescent love affect so many, and where did it come from?

What was the extraordinary energy that affected 5.9 billion people during August 31st and September 6th, 1997?

What has happened to Diana’s voice post-death, the resonance of which appears to have precipitated significant social movements, such as the #METOOCAMPAIGN?

The book is packed with Vocal Exercises, Sound Meditations, and Presence Techniques, which allowed Diana to become the spell-binding, radiant being that she became – about which Henry Kissinger said: “ I remember, Diana was a beautiful young woman whose blue eyes melted grown men’s bones!”

The content of this book is seen as a developing work, which will eventually evolve to become a series of workshops known as THE DIANA HEART PATH

Stewart Pearce



   “I knew something profound was coming my way.”


This is a book that is a call to action for women everywhere. Its begins and ends with love, urging the soul within each woman to rise up, to be a force for change, just as Diana had found her mission as a culture-shaper, twenty odd years ago. Diana’s firm desire was that through her example, the women of the world would find their own authentic voice to fulfill their unique purpose, whilst expressing liberation and love through each aspect of life. Diana believed that wherever tyranny was held it would be freed by grace, that wherever cruelty existed it would be freed by love, and that wherever the voice of oppression existed it would be freed by the voice of the kindness. In this Diana was a trailblazer!

Diana’s story is now fit for retelling, yet through a new perspective. For although Diana embodied the zeitgeist of the 1980-90’s as a major voice of change, her spirit also led the way to the social upheaval of today. In the wake of her universal and inspirational appeal, she is part of what is happening right now, through movements such as the #METOOCAMPAIGN, #WHYDIDN’TIREPORT, the charity of Sentebale which was founded by Prince Harry to support the wellbeing of young people affected by HIV in Lesotho and Botswana, and the constitutional revolution of a Black American actress divorcee, marrying Prince Harry purely for love.

Diana gave credence to a new form of authenticity, inclusivity, charity and transparency. Diana embodied a crucible of human virtues that can be viewed as the essential securities that balance us in times of monumental change. Through the peerless virtue – love is all there is - Diana gave permission for formal behavior to be reinvented, for emotional aloofness to be made transparent, for starched stuffiness to be given a human face, for emotional expression to be given its rightful place, and for dismissive criticism to be turned into care. Indeed, viewing Diana’s life through the lens of the last twenty-one years, one sees what a truly extraordinary story hers was, and how it impinges on today. Each climax and nadir appears to have been crafted by a sage-writer of an ancient Greek drama.

Through the latter part of 1995 to her untimely death in 1997, I took a giant intake of breath, and became the voice, presentation and life coach to the Princess of Wales. My role was defined to enhance her vocal presence in the world, and although Diana was the most celebrated woman, it was essential for Diana to build her voice craft, confidence, persona, passion, persuasion, and physical presence. Yet we decided that my role would be held within the very soul of discretion. Therefore, no one knew, until now that is, as the times have radically changed, and the women of the world are aroused. Women everywhere are awakening to claim their sovereignty, desiring to be liberated from the specter of masculine supremacy, yearning to create gender equality, desiring to evolve emotional transparency, genuinely demanding moral honesty - all the attributes that Diana became a figurehead of.

Now it is time for my out breath to take place, so that I may inform how I helped Diana bring forth her force as the ‘voice of change’. Many sociologists, psychologists, and feminists have noted that Diana helped to give rise to a major social tipping point, which released an archetypal resonance into all our lives. It was through her unique persona that a mighty force resonated into the body of the collective, as she brought her own astonishing beauty, candid wit, intuitive wisdom, heartfelt compassion, brilliant fun, desire for fairness, and alluring grace to the fore. These natural qualities grew during her public existence, and it seemed increased exponentially at her demise.

When I was initially requested to consult the Princess, the Martin Bashir Panorama interview had just been broadcast drawing 22.8 million viewers. Frankly I had huge reservations about becoming involved, much of which was based on not wishing to be part of the ‘circus’ that surrounded dear Diana. The notoriety that moved alongside the Princess’s public existence was crazy, and I was keenly aware of the fact that a number of her leading advisors, therapists, and consultants, had treacherously sold their indiscretions to the tabloids, for vast personal profit. This produced an understandable sense of betrayal in Diana - a wound that appeared like a deep gash – and so I insisted that our consultations be underscored by complete confidentiality, and fortunately Diana agreed to this.

Of course, to be asked to fulfill such as role was such an honor, and the moment I met Diana, I also met a deep love, and it is with the absolute conviction of this love that I write my account twenty odd years after Diana’s death. These twenty years have seen the changing fortunes of our world occur to such a point where socio-political chaos illuminates the need for her presence right now. This book is a dedication to her love, so my writing does not include ridiculous disclosures, discredits about Diana, hearsays that trifle her life, or expositions of her innermost secrets. Rather it is to address the very essence of who and what Diana was, so that we may all understand the true significance of her importance, and heal the lamentation of her passing which still scores the hearts and souls of many. My wish is to reinterpret her glory, to take example from her unique experience and empower the women of the world, particularly at this time of monumental change. For the roles played by the women of the world are vastly changing, transforming so radically, that I believe we need to celebrate the enormity of what Diana gave us, the gift that provides reason for what her extraordinary life, and death were about?

Was her life a cipher by which the role of women today could be re-perceived? Was her death a ritual killing or an archetypal sacrifice? Will Diana’s memory ever fade? Was her position in the royal family significant to their lives at a time when the Monarchy was seen to be unnecessary? Will the vital qualities of her being, her compassion, kindness and frank immediacy, assist the people of the world to uplift themselves into a position of even greater maturity? Will Diana’s presence be further realized through love, recognizing that love is the only significant factor in all our lives? Will Diana become the figurehead of a new world order? What contribution can the life of Diana provide within our lives, in this seething world of Trump and Brexit. All these questions, and many others are the substance of my account.

Perhaps, this is a great point in your reading, to ask yourself what you wish this book to provide you with, because although Diana evidently had immense value as a social icon, she was a lady of the people, and her emphasis was truly to compassionately help anyone in difficulty. So, questions you might want to ask are:
How will this book benefit me, and what will I gain by reading it?
What key skills do I want to encounter as I read?
How will the exercises in the book make me feel?

My desire is to enchant, uplift, inspire, reassure and genuinely help you towards transcendence. Within the book there are many strategic exercises, glowing affirmations, and relaxing meditations that Diana directly experienced, which I also want to gift you, to encourage your own journey towards empowerment and enlightenment, just as they helped the Princess. Diana wanted the amazing allure that she possessed to also be yours, so the empowerment exercises and points of transformation that Diana used which helped her to develop the confidence that produced her allure, are here, and will become a project called DIANA’S HEART PATH. Therefore in many ways you are a vessel by which the efficacy of this work will have affect. All that is addressed within the book is approached in casual and endearing terms just as Diana would have, so that there is nothing starchy or distant or superior about the work, but rather it provides a host of possibilities based on the self-love that will not only help you, but will bring you abundant riches!

If you are searching for a purpose this work will gently lead you to a more than satisfactory conclusion, the fulfillment of your dream. If you are hurting, this work will help you heal. If you feel disorientated or lost, this work will lead you home. If you are feeling confused about your values, this work will give you new definitions. If you feel dismayed by the world’s current disfunctionality, his work will appear like a lighthouse in the ocean of bewilderment. Just read on and feel Diana’s love permeating your being, moving you into a vastly better place than when you first began to search these pages for Diana’s sweetness!

Diana wanted you to feel that you are loved, that you are comforted, that you are reassured, and that when you feel this love, you will also find your purpose is to love in like measure? Diana believed that if we are filled with love, a power arises within us to create a life of infinite possibility. And Diana showed by example that within your being is a love that can direct you to think and feel in ways that reflect and attract all the love that you want. This type of thinking and feeling is called ENLIGHTENMENT, and this state of being defines a choice that is available to you in any moment.

Diana journeyed into the pit of despair for some time, just as you might possibly have done, and then climbed into a new way of being that allowed her light to shine more powerfully, with a self-love that encouraged many to do the same. Diana stopped thinking of herself as a random piece of flotsam and jetsam living within a cruel universe that didn’t care about her. She turned all the limiting beliefs that once held her prisoner into a creation of pure wonder. For she found that, if she believed herself to be the effect of a loving world, her light shone in a special way, like a beacon of compassion that bringing miracles about. Whereas if she thought ‘victim thoughts’ she fell foul to challenging situations which debilitated her, and brought the demons of fear, denial, and shame to the fore.

ENLIGHTENMENT is the answer to every horrible situation in your life. If you can readjust your thinking to realize this, within every situation that appears to have control over you, within every experience that gives rise to the feeling that you are merely the effect of an angry cause, you will see that actually the Divine lives within you, and there is no force that the Divine cannot manage. There are no mortal situations where you are powerless.

Pause, detach, feel stillness and note that whenever your essence is obscured by the cantankerous nature of the world, you may also think another thought, and so remember that the Divinity in the Universe gave birth to you. The Universe is similarly designed to uplift you, moving you back into a state of natural innocence, wonder and freedom. When this is remembered and truly felt, the world appears to be abundant!

Diana began to believe that she was an expression of Divine perfection, and that the majesty of the universe, was an implicit force organized and aligned by the intelligence of the Divine for her, for you, for me. She felt that from spiritual substance arose all material manifestation, and that this is was a distinguishing, objective principle of the Universe. Just consider for a moment that the law of gravity isn’t just a belief, but also a truth. Can you see that this is true whether you believe it or not? So you see Diana realized that all spiritual virtues or laws are a modus operandi to help us live our consciousness out loud through lives that can bring about great creative goodness. One of the truly significant contemporary teachers of these principles is Marianne Williamson, and Diana loved to read the superb A RETURN TO LOVE that was written by this modern sage.

Diana loved this famous teaching composed by Marianne:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

We live in such turbulent times that it is easy to feel our internal value system become askew. Its easy to feel dislodged, with all our values barracking against each other, arguing about which way we should view right and wrong, good or bad, just and unjust, fair or rude. Often we abandon our own value system under the weight of the rules the world gives us. Then a gulf emerges between what feels right within and what is real without. The elements of affection and sharing used at home become distorted by the uncaring nature of the world. The common good we feel within our family, or with intimate friends, that safety and comfort is replaced by a rapacious desire to personally succeed. This egocentric behavior drives us to elbow people out of the way, rather than to step aside in grace. Then sooner or later we are rushing, competing our way to the finishing line, and just like the horizon, this finishing line keeps moving further and further away.

I write this during one of the most crucial weeks of gender evaluation in the twenty-first century, the week of the FORDS vs. KAVANAUGH Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing in the USA. When Dr. Christine Blasey Ford faced the Senate Committee on Sept. 27, she raised her right hand and swore to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. From this moment it was clear that an unassuming psychology professor, and mother of two, was about to change the course of current events in real time.

Unfortunately, the victim of that sexual assault held by the cruel hands of Brett Kavanaugh 36 years ago, was side-railed by the Senate Committee, even though their belief in her veracity was well stated. From the opening of Dr Ford’s statement: “I’m here today not because I want to be, I’m actually terrified, but I felt it my civic duty!” the American public watched and through polls voted that 84% of her statement was true.

When the hearing reached its ghastly completion, Dr Ford had done more than prove herself as a credible witness. For millions of women and men around the Globe who sat pinned to their tablets or TV’s, she had outshone Kavanaugh as the leading protagonist in the whole complex narrative. Women from around the world began calling into C-SPAN, CNN and FOX NEWS to tell their own decades-old stories of harassment and rape. The hash tags #METOO and #WhyIDidntReport exploded on social media, as a hugely supportive cry for those who had never become public about the sexual assault they had also been the victims of. People globally from Albuquerque to Zanzibar watched this testimony, some gathered in disbelieving unity around tablets and smart phones, some with horror in their minds, some with empathic hands held over their hearts, and most with mouths agape as in shock they listened.

Just as Diana had been shocked when she finally faced the incredulity of how her husband had been unfaithful to here. Its true this wasn’t a physical assault as in the case of Dr Ford, but mounted to be a huge psychological wounding, persistently driven home by many of Prince Charles supporters, and of course the Media. As the Royal Household saw her as ‘loony’ she also received personal wounding from the daily tabloids who at that time of writing dismissed Diana with: “Do we need this heroine of the people for the people?” Conversely, the answer that came back from the people was: “Yes, Diana has a love and compassion that will bring about the democratization of the monarchy.” The purpose of the institution of monarchy was to symbolize the enduring spirit of the nation, yet this it no longer did, and so change was in the air!

No one in history has been so universally adored as Diana, Princess of Wales. Never before has a public figure so deeply affected the lives of the people of the world as Diana did. Not even the most celebrated screen actress or celebrity icon has been photographed as much as Diana. The Queen of everybody’s heart was captivating, inspiring, alluring, charismatic, and through an innate power, influenced even the most diehard cynic with her warmth, beauty, limitless love, and kindness. It was as though she had touched everyone’s soul with her radiance and charm, melting men’s bones with her grace. Amongst strong men she would walk, with Presidents and Prime Ministers she would talk, and many could make little sense of what was happening to them. Wherever Diana moved, a wave of grace passed through everybody, shifting all into richer contact with his or her inner essence or higher self.

Yet within the heart of British Royal Family Diana experienced grave opposition. For she established a new way of being that contradicted the rigid protocols of tradition, the social rubrics that had existed for over a hundred years with the Royal enclave, where feelings were withheld and never personalized. Instead, Diana’s way was to overtly express the way she felt, and after developing the courage of her first ten years of royal service confessed: “I do things differently, for I rule from the heart, not from the head.” This observation became her lode-stone, her brand signature, her usp, and she encouraged us all to open our hearts, even through to the point of death.

Diana openly showed her vulnerability in public, met people face on, warmly and lovingly held hands, all of which was considered totally inappropriate by the Windsor’s. For they did what they had always done, they appeared aloof to the collective feeling of the people, they withheld their emotions, and took distance hiding behind the royal veneer. In counterpoise, as Diana attended engagements, her astonishing blue eyes brimmed with kindness, and wooed the crowds, a behavior that was disdained by the family she had married into. Then they began to criticize her giving birth to her statement, “There is no better way to dismantle a personality than to isolate it!” and this they did out of embarrassment.

It’s uplifting to reflect on the courage and daring Diana possessed as a change-maker. She spoke the truth as she felt it, she was endearing as she sensed someone’s frailty, she loved where love was absent, and just as the royal family disparaged her fragility, turning a necessity into a virtue Diana used the negativity to aid the search for her own voice, to receive even more composite strength from the people who cared about her, and for whom she cared. Her vocal timbre was unmistakably the call of the heart, pregnant with emotional truth, yearning for the magic of synergy, searching for kindness in the eyes of those before her, and rich with a desire to make empathic connection.

Alone as a public figure, Diana introduced us to the ‘voice of change’ as the voice of the heart, balancing out the excesses of the cerebral mind, rigid with its own controls. The voice of change Diana believed holds sparkling authenticity in the waves of its resonance. The voice of change speaks with passionate truth, as the most powerful tool we humans possess. The voice of change does not hide from fear, humiliation, embarrassment, or subterfuge. The voice of change lives joyously, freely, empowering our identity into creation. The voice of change speaks, shouts, cries-out with a gusto that evolves courage and determination, finding all of its breath-ways to express personal sovereignty. The voice of change sounds our world into existence. The voice of change does not mumble or murmur, it resonates with a force that arises from deep inside, accumulated through years of plummeting the deep pools of our consciousness, and expressing the conviction that lies therein – a truth which is most credible, most raw, most vital, and most beautiful - about who we are, and how our soul breathes.

The voice of change is fully owned by the speaker, physically resonating from their core, clarified by distinct diction, reverberating its primal sound, honed by the beauty of its physical capacity, and crafted by the majesty of its mental clarity. The voice of change is shaped by bare survival, identifying and then resolving pain, ignominy, strife, abuse, denial, guilt, shame, injustice, betrayal, and hatred. The voice of change allows the soul of the speaker to shape the destiny of their message, and thus claims a position of unique brilliance. The voice of change has only one clear quest - that the pathway of destiny be laid with silver and gold - leading the individual to an open heart, and a creative excellence that is filled with the loving force of the Universe!

The voice of change is the only constant that we have. For in truth, when change occurs, it signifies that we are fully alive, moving forward, spiriting ourselves into creation, aligning our soul’s destiny, dynamically engaged, moving to the beat of our hearts, breathing to the steadiness of our footfall, walking with courageous gravity along the red path of life.

This book explains how Diana opened her voice to its rich potential, so that she could amplify her promise to augment world change. Through its witness, so too will you find exercises that will expand your voice. I promise the book is packed full of useful tips, and ways of being, that stimulate personal presence, persuasive magnetism, gracious charisma, and creative excellence. Also, and of paramount value, the book provides a means by which the horrors of life can be alchemical transformed, so that ‘the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune’, and the multitude of pains that we accrue as we move through life, are fully transmuted. All of the major processes I used with Diana to elicit freedom are here for you to use. These have become known as DIANA’S MEDITATIONS, for they were experienced first hand by the Princess, right up to her untimely death in the summer of 1997.

Before we go there let’s remember what preceded our knowledge of her tragic death - the Wedding. This was an incredibly significant event in everybody’s life, not just in Diana’s, because the life of the nation was powerfully affected. So too, around the world, people became engrossed in the spectacle. This lifted the British into a defining moment of their history, whilst the citizens of the world felt a new form of hope and idealism being born. Those who watched the ceremony in St Paul’s Cathedral on that sunny day, saw a series of extraordinary moments, described by the Archbishop of Canterbury, as “the stuff of which fairy tales are made, which tells a truth by which the world is shaped, indicating that we are not just victims. A marriage that has both a private face and a public duty, and where so many hopes are placed!”

By way of illustration, during one heart-pulsing instant within the wedding ceremony at St. Paul’s Cathedral on July 29th 1981, a whoop of joy broke loose from the vast field of thousands of spectator’s, which sounded rather like a ‘medieval accolade’ as it filled the air, and whilst the royal couple haltingly plighted their troth. The sheer force of the eagerly expectant audience placed huge impact on the ceremony, forcing a dramatic transition to occur in the vicissitudes of the Royal Family. Indeed, the ripples not only affected the core institution of the monarchy, but also moved through the collective consciousness - a force that subsequently transformed most people into believing we were entering a fairy tale world of a “Once upon a Time” mythological status.

When such universal mechanisms are awakened, otherworldly energies stir, and Diana intuitively became aware of her destiny by these forces, in that she felt herself to be something much more than merely Charles’s Queen. Diana shared with friends that she felt predestined for another role, an occupation more compassionate or humanitarian in nature. Somehow she knew deep in her soul, that the future would be defined by her vocation, and not just by the media display of her.

Then, after the trials and tribulations of aggravating bulimia, unremitting insomnia, and gut wrenching disempowerment, she met and gained her power, yet by a raw twist of fate was also brought to her untimely death. Through tears we all sensed that Diana Spencer had truly ascended, as a perfectly imperfect human being, to become a star of vast luminosity. The Queen of Everybody’s Hearts had transcended into heaven surfing waves of love as people wept out their adoration of her, in awe of all that she had represented in their lives. It seemed that this star, which once shone so brightly, needed to fall, in order for a powerful shift to take place within the ‘collective consciousness’. And as Charles Spencer pointed out in his Westminster Abbey funeral panegyric: It is a point to remember that of all the ironies about Diana, perhaps the greatest was this - a girl given the name of the ancient goddess of hunting was, in the end, the most hunted person of the modern age.”

What we saw her death transforming the people of the world, from a ‘literal’ state of being into a ‘metaphysical’ vibration, the consequences brought forth a vastly new perception. At her passing, millions of people, shocked and bruised to the core wept openly, demonstrating the largest global public grieving ever witnessed. This emotional outpouring brought the citizens of the world to their knees, whilst unusual phenomena occurred in Europe’s major cities. For example, there was a pronounced flower shortage as millions of bouquets, exuding love, admiration, awe, and compassion were laid before the stately gates of Kensington Palace, and other places of significant interest - locations like the site of Diana’s death, the gates of Althorp, her family’s ancestral seat, Buckingham Palace, Churches and Temples all over the world - places which hitherto became ritualized shrines to her memory.

In Kensington Gardens candles burned around virtually every tree, with flowers, Teddy Bears, Queen of Hearts Cards, hand painted pictures, love poems, declarations, citations of peace, compassionate outpourings, photographs, and paintings. Love flags fluttered in the trees and bushes, or were attached to ornamental railings of Kensington Palace. Fields of blooms were laid like a vast lawn of woe before the Palace gates. Huge fan shapes of Lilies and Roses decorated the ground wherever you walked, as people poured out their grief at the tragedy of her death, and maybe for the passing of their own Mother. Yet, at the same time each token blest her on her flight to paradise, whilst Diana became a newly ascended Angel.

As the public outpouring took place, the demand for news outbid the stocks of paper on which the news was printed. Television viewer statistics soared into stratospheric proportions, and during the funeral day itself a mass of 3.5 billion people watched their Television screens, recording this day as the saddest September 6th in history. These TV viewing figures were in excess of half the World’s population - which in 1997 registered at 5.84 billion people.

Diana the People’s Princess, who had become the Queen of Everybody’s Hearts, was now an Angel of luminescent being. The instrument of her unique love, the tenderness of her heartfelt compassion, the definition of her role as a shrewd Ambassador for Peace, all and more were now details that elevated our consciousness as we reviewed her life. A life that had been given to those who suffered, particularly with regard to alleviating the pain of the sick, by liberating the crucial predicament of Aids and HIV sufferers, the plight of the Homeless, the devastation of Leprosy, and the random destruction of Landmine usage. When Diana made the decision to shake the hands of the Aids patients she met, without gloves, she also shook the world into a new reality.

It is this reality that moves us forward now. Each of us has our own part to play, and nothing is expected or required of us that we don't already have to give. As Diana showed, we are all needed, we all have our own gifts and qualities, we all know what our destinies can be, if we just give ourselves time to be still and think. But what she also emphasized was that it would be our hearts that would define that specific calling.

Some of you will educate, some will learn. Some of you will be politically active, and some will make tea. Some of you will be compassionate to the poor, and some with legislate social change. Some of you will make babies, and some will create significant projects, and just as Diana would anonymously visit people in hospital when she heard their cry, so will some of you sit with those who are lonely, unwell, or lost, and give comfort. As Diana said: “I can’t be indifferent to those who suffer or need care. I can’t ignore social unfairness or injustice. I can't turn a blind eye to the homeless. We must believe that our voices and actions will change the world, and then find a way of speaking forth about the change that is needed – this is our moral imperative!”

In a land of mountain ranges,
green valleys, and winding rivers,
one happy little farm stretched out.
A boy and a girl lived there and, being curious,
they loved to explore outside the farm.
One day while hiking, they heard a shrieking cry in the sky.
They looked up. A pair of bald eagles circled above in swooping flight.

"Engaging read. Hard to put down." -- Billy Allmon, U.S. Navy SEAL (Ret)

He’s a relentless homicide detective. She’s an uncompromising journalist.

Neither desires to work together—but they’ll never uncover the truth alone.

Landing a front page headline isn’t why reporter Caitlin Sparks is investigating a string of suspicious deaths connected to the U.S. State Department. She has a personal stake in finding the killer.

Detective Blake Madison has a connection to the murders too, and will risk anything to uncover the truth. But a journalist is the last person he’d rely on to help him solve a crime—especially one whose trail of evidence leads back to him.

Joining forces becomes essential as the body count continues to grow. Someone powerful doesn't want the truth to come out—and will stop at nothing to make sure no one talks.

On the run with nowhere to turn, the couple devises a plan to expose the killer. The risk is great and the chance of success small, but the ultimate outcome is something neither one of them envisioned.

Blake stroked her hair. “It’s okay, baby. Just a nightmare.”

“It seemed so real.” Caitlin felt his arms tighten around her, felt the power in them, and appreciated the comforting peace they provided. She had never felt so exposed, and yet so safe and secure. She turned her head and strained to see into the darkness again. “It felt like he was really here.”

“Dreams have a way of doing that.” He rocked her for a few more minutes in his soothing embrace, and then whispered in her ear. “Better?”

Caitlin took a few more deep breaths, and then tried to draw away, embarrassed. “Yes. I’m all right.” Again, she peered over her shoulder into the darkness to see if the figure would reappear. “Sorry if I woke you.”

Blake did not release his grasp. “Don’t worry. You didn’t wake me.”

Caitlin knew it was useless to struggle so she rested her head against his chest again and tried to relax. Her mind drifted back to a time when she had been intimidated by this man. Now his mere presence was reassuring. His touch, his voice, brought security and a sense of peace.

“That’s better.” He cleared his throat, but it still sounded hoarse when he talked. “I wish you would put the past behind you.”

Caitlin’s breath caught in her throat. That’s what Vince had just told her. She pulled away and regarded Blake with a troubled look. Had Vince been trying to tell her something from the other side that was merely being echoed by Blake? Was it time to move on with her life? Was she ready for that?

She lay her head down again before answering. “I’m not sure I want to yet.”

Blake’s chest rose against her cheek as he sucked in a deep, slow breath, but he didn’t speak and his grasp was unrelenting. She savored the sensation of being held by him with her head against his heart, keenly aware of the solidness of his arms and the warmth of his skin. His embrace was powerful and tender, strong and gentle.

She allowed herself to bask briefly in the peaceful, shared moment, but then feared she was being selfish. He’s probably uncomfortable and wants to go back to bed. “I’m okay,” she murmured into his chest, trying to reassure him. “You can let me go now, Blake.” She opened her eyes when he finally answered.

“I’m not sure I want to yet.”
