About The Book:
“When I saw the invitation from Flower of Life press to contribute a story of a major Turning Point in my life, I knew right away without much hesitation I had a story to share. Writing in this way gave me a deeper understanding of the internal psychic processes taking place. When I asked for reviews from friends, many said I had risen from the ashes like the Phoenix. If you identify with the fires of the past few years, a Saturn return, a breakdown in your relationship, or emotional pain from your heart cracking wide open, I invite you to take a peek into my healing journey. As Rumi has been quoted, “tell me what you hold inside? I said: Pain and sorrow. He said: stay with it. The wound is the place where the light enters you”. My story revealed to me the places where the light had entered my soul.”-Christina Mercy
“In an inspiring story of “startling transformation,” Christina Mercy shares profound experiences of death and rebirth in vivid imagery leading us to the heart of the fire. Offering us a glimpse of the powerful inner and outer Phoenix. Mercy helps us understand that everything happens to open our hearts. Canvas and paints provided a canvas portal into the depths of her female incarnated experience. With archetypal language and imagery, she presents a stunning love story to the self, describing personal soul retrieval with lush words and paintings. Mercy offers stunning glimpses of her mission–through spiritual alchemy–to reach the truth that can begin to heal our ancestral patterns.”
Susan Wooldridge, author of poemcrazy: freeing your life with words
“Christina Mercy’s life story reads like a legend. She masterfully weaves the complexities, traumas and triumphs of her life experience into a rich tapestry of words and teachings that leave her readers in awe of her courage and resilience. The most striking thing about Christina’s story is her capacity for self-reflection and transformation, that these often-horrific events not only fueled her desire for her own healing but exponentially grew her capacity to be in service to a greater good in the world. This offering is a blessing and an inspiration. Christina’s work is a profound gift to all who seek to rise from the ashes like a precious phoenix.”

“If you have or know of someone who has a long history of navigating trauma, then this story will touch you. Christina writes a beautiful and soulful revisiting and unfolding of her history and journey through life. I am moved and touched by her courage and honesty to share her story of trauma and healing so authentically. I love how she also educates and enlightens as she shares. Her story is a gift that women won’t want to miss.”

“Everyone has a story and Christina’s story is one of triumph and love-I think the best leaders, visionaries, and healers are human beings who have done the deepest and most profound work, and Christina continues to dive into the depths of her soul to rise like the Phoenix she was meant to be. I deeply value and admire her heart, her passion, and her ability to love, in spite of all she has experienced.
She is gentle, kind, and compassionate and her Artistic talents inspire me to further utilize Art as a healing modality. Her calming nature is medicine for the soul and she is always willing to share her healing gifts with others. I highly recommend working with her.”
