Chariss Walker has said that each step she has taken in life has led to this very moment. She encourages others to understand that each experience, whether considered a blessing or a mistake, was the right choice to make at that time. She says that "it is in the reconciliation and acceptance of the choices we have made that turn those experiences from fear to love." Chariss has many life lessons to share with others through her writing.
Her most recent accomplishment is completing a Master degree, 2012. Her fist book, Make a Joyful Noise: Searching for a Spiritual Path in a Material World, was named "Most Inspirational/Motivational Book of the Year" in the 2009 Mom's Choice Awards. Make a Joyful Noise, published April 30, 2008 and now sold worldwide has won 6 awards, also receiving honorable mention in the 2008 DIY Book Festival.
Chariss has studied religion and metaphysics extensively for many years through seminars, e-courses, home-study courses, self-help books, and earning educational degrees. She has been known to read two and three books at one time in a quest to understand and share with others what she has learned. Her real qualifications are what matters more: life experiences, true insight, and helping others.
Chariss was designated Ordained Minister* in 2000 and completed the highest degree attainable as Reiki Master/Teacher in 2001. She has helped many with self-assisted healing, meditation, prayer, balancing and opening energy channels, and self-realization. Chariss is a Certified Magnetic Therapist and continues to share her teachings through her published works: Chakra Basics: Fundamentals of Spiritual Growth; The Spiritual Gifts: Understanding for the Great Shift and Beyond; and Love & Sex: A Personal Journey which are sold in eBook and soft cover formats at online retailers.
In 2005, she was blessed with the challenge of rearing her five-year old granddaughter and once again is involved in the process of extracurricular activities, homework, and bed-time rituals. Chariss feels that her life is truly enriched from the experience.
In 2012, Chariss started an on-line formatting business to help other Indie Writers get their manuscripts published in both soft cover and e-book formats. She's put her own experience with the procedure of converting word document files into up-loadable documents for publishing to good use.
