Interview with Yvonne Cloete

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born and raised in South Africa where I witnessed discrimination and couldn't understand it. It was so appalling to me, yet society wanted me to participate. I couldn't. I tried in my small way to change it and when I couldn't, and other circumstances prevented me from being a catalyst, I ran away from it. It was only when I realized the bigger picture of humanity's choice, did I stop feeling guilty.
I began to recognize the two different energies within the curriculum of Earth and began my writing. I knew I had to share all I received from Spirit, so others could wake up from a deep sleep, to assist in the evolution of bringing a new energy to Earth. The next 2500 year cycle. We are currently in 2015. We have 485 years left. Help me to wake up humanity!
When did you first start writing?
As a teenager I wrote in my native language, Afrikaans but I wanted to please society, so I began to write plays, short stories, and eventually erotica. Then, when I moved to the USA in 1997, I was so busy teaching my kids a new language, and to adjust to a new culture that my writhing started with children's literature, so I could teach my three daughters English. I never gave my creative side a change, until I experienced immense pain from abandonment. That was when I knew I had to write again but this time in a new language.
What's the story behind your latest book?
See The Gift, Not The Curse is my life's journey of how I learned to open up again to listen to Spirit after leaving religion. I stopped being afraid of what people would think of me openly admiring that I "speak to dead people" or that I am channeled to allow Spirit to speak through me. My journey is so different yet the same that I felt compelled to share.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I needed to share my experiences because it is not just a story to me but I know that if in one percent, it could change someone else to look at our world differently, then it should be told. I want to see humanity change to come to oneness, wholeness, and completeness here on Earth because that is where we are from. It has nothing to do with religion. It is within our evolutionary designed matrix. As we have a 24 hour cycle where we know in 12 hours there will be different than the previous. Then we know we have a 2500 year cycle. It is time to wake up while sleeping in the dark to witness the dawn. Let's survive this cycle. Let's wake up and bring heaven to Earth.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Not sure yet. Will have to wait and see.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
To express my creativity. I have educated and medicated the left side of my brain for too long. Desperately seeking my Ph.D. in Industrial Organizational Psychology wanting to be what society wanted me to be. Now, it is time to educate and medicate my right side of my brain. Writing is me leaving the left logistical, analytical left side of the brain to explore the spacial, and tranquility of the right side of the brain. I embrace intuition because I agree with my idol Einstein, who said imagination is much more powerful than knowledge.
What do your fans mean to you?
Those who love me and appreciate me, is one with me, even if you are not. I appreciate you. I am grateful. You are me and I am you!
Thank you!
What are you working on next?
I have a few more books that are lined up. The next book is Y Do We Dream" from my Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/ydowedream. Then I have a co-authored book called "Conversations With Merlin" which are channeled conversations with my Ascendant Master and a dear friend of mine asking the questions coming soon.
Who are your favorite authors?
Paul Selig, Dr. Wayne Dyer, and Eckhart Tolle to name a few. There are so many that I don't even want to go down this rabbit hole but I do acknowledge them all in my book.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Life. I am so grateful to being here on Earth right now.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I work at my daughter's company as a COO she started, I know because of my influence, teaching her to bring love and light to all. It is called Loving Life Therapy LLC. Please go take a look http://lovinglifetherapy.com/. She adopted a 16 year old when she was a child herself. She, her sister, and my grandchildren are my inspiration to continue to work within the field of giving.

A Personal Journey to Discover Me, and that I AM Love and Light. Growing up in South Africa I witnessed discrimination and was appalled at the sight of hatred. I wanted answers.

It was only until I came through much darkness, hate, separation, loneliness, suffering, and despair..
