At fifty-two, in the wake of her husband’s death, Lori Morrison found herself living alone on the edge of a volcanic crater lake in a lush jungle of El Salvador, mourning and feeling an intense desire to make sense of her loss.
This powerful book tells the inspiring true story of how Morrison’s mind cracked open so that she began to see, hear, and feel the subtle energy of other dimensions of reality, including that of a mysterious past as an ancient Mayan priest. Despite the wonder of these new perceptions, her turbulent awakening pushed Lori into a spiritual crisis. She landed in a locked psychiatric ward where the doctors had no insight on her experience.
Struggling to make sense of her new identity, Lori’s quest to educate herself and salvage her sanity led her from faraway Columbia, where she did rituals with indigenous healers, to a rehab center in California and the Sistine Chapel in Rome, then back to Lake Ilopango to fulfill her Mayan destiny. With the assistance of a gifted medium, a Native American shaman, and other healers, she also ultimately enjoyed the spiritual reunion she had dreamed of with her husband and was empowered to guide others in awakening.

“…This time the Mayan ancestor came through and showed me how the energy of the world would shift after 2012-the year when the Mayan calendar would end-at which point we would see a transformation of humanity as it exists. Since we would experience this as a crisis, it was important that as many human beings as possible reach higher states of enlightenment to endure the cosmic storm that was coming. They made it clear that although they had cracked me open, the change in me would serve a greater purpose than myself.”
