Interview with Nicolette Lodge

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My driving need to help people transform their lives from pain to power. I want to free people from their suffering. My greatest satisfaction comes from making others happy.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
When I write it feels like a conduit opens up in me and I channel Creator's wisdom. Whenever I feel tears arise in me I know I have hit the sweet spot and have Creator's blessing. I feel very close to Spirit when I write.
What are you working on next?
My next book is all about how I cured myself of cancer without any medical intervention.The past two years have been a healing sabbatical where I have walked my talk from my first book Forgiveness. This next book is going to be very powerful.
Why did you write Forgiveness?
My late mom struggled with forgiveness and letting go of her past and I wanted to help others who are similarly afflicted let go of their grief and anger and be free. It is such a freedom to no longer be shackled to the past and to be able to live unencumbered and happy in the present.
Have you had a personal struggle with forgiveness?
Forgiveness came to me quite naturally on the more superficial levels. I forgave my ex-husband his affair with my best friend. I forgave her too and she has remained my best friend. I have been able to walk my talk in how I handled my cancer diagnosis without looking back into the past or becoming a victim. I even forgave my attackers this year when I was thrown off my mountain bike and my ankle badly dislocated, incurring huge medical costs for surgery. I'd have to say that the deepest of layers of forgiveness have been in dealing with my father issues. I am living proof that forgiveness is possible and that nothing from the past need ever hold you back.
What words of wisdom do you have for your reader?
Love yourself! Love yourself unconditionally! You are the only version of you and the world needs you to be self-loved. Self-love and forgiveness are intertwined. You cannot have one without the other. If you do just one thing in this lifetime, let it be the gift of love from yourself to yourself. This will transform our world.
Have you any parting words for your reader?
Yes. If my book helps you, please write and share your triumphs with me, and write a review on the web so others can benefit from your inspiration too. Thank you.
