In my short story ebook, The Call of the Lapis Lazuli, I tell the story of the moment before I was even born, when I first met with my mystical mentor, my Guardian Angel, Caliel, to inspire my readers to consider their own life’s purpose, potential, and calling, and if you’re interested, you can find my ebook on Amazon.

Here’s the inspiration for the story, my own lapis lazuli stone. Isn’t it beautiful? I love the colour of the golden pyrite flecks against the royal blue canvas. It’s like stars in the night sky.

Lapis Lazuli

I love gemstones because they embody many wonderful metaphysical properties and I keep them close at hand to remind me to focus on the qualities I want to embrace in my life. The Lapis Lazuli holds great significance for me because it’s all about communication, creativity, and self-expression. For me, the lapis lazuli also emits an energy of transformation because change can’t happen until you start speaking your truth.

This video is the first of a series where I’ll be talking about my fascination with crystals and gemstones and sharing the jewells of my collection.

Here’s the transcript from the video:

Hi, my name is Maria Koropecky and I’m a coach, healer, and author and the owner of Homespunspa Mobile Spa. Today I’d like to talk about the hero’s journey.

Have you ever read a book or watched a movie or heard a story that was so riveting and exciting that you couldn’t wait to find out what happens next? Well, it was probably about someone on a hero’s or heroine’s journey.

These stories are timeless and they appeal to people across cultures and generations and they have certain things in common like a call to adventure and meeting with a mentor and encountering other supernatural characters. Then the hero goes through a series of trials and then there’s a big showdown and then the hero wins and then goes back home to the ordinary world to share the treasure with others.

Stories like Star Wars, The Odyssey, and the Alchemist…

There’s something about these stories that resonate deeply within us because hero’s journeys are not just for characters in epic novels. We’re all on our own journey of self-discovery and adventure. We’re all heros and heroines in our own lives.

Unfortunately, sometimes life gets in the way, and we get distracted, and we procrastinate, and we put those dreams on hold indefintely.

Well, today’s the today for you to take those dreams and yourself off the shelf.

As a coach, healer, and author, I help sensitive and creative introverts – people who like to spend time alone – but who are also hearing a call to service or adventure – work through reluctance and resitance, so they feel empowered to move further along their hero’s journey and ultimately transform their lives, fullfill their mission, and share the elixir they’ve found with the rest of the world.

I can relate because I’m an introvert, too.

Perhaps you’re at a place in life where:

  1. You’re in transition and are thinking about the next chapter in your life; or
  2. You feel like adventure is calling or like you’re being called to service or you just feel like you need to get yourself out there in the world and you’re tired of settling for mediocre but don’t know your next steps; or
  3. You’re looking for a transformational experience that will catapult you on to your hero’s or heroine’s journey.

I want you to get out of the audience and into the play and get off the sidelines and get in the game and feel what it’s like to be authentically alive, while still maintaining the best of what it means to be an introvert. The world needs introverts and here’s your chance to expand your reach.

I want you to be excited about what happens next in your life and coaching is the ticket to getting your whole life to change.

Every hero needs a coach. Just look at Luke Skywalker and Yoda!

In my short story ebook, “The Call of the Lapis Lazuli,” I tell the story of my own journey when I first met with my mystical mentor, my Guardian Angel, before I was born, to inspire my readers to consider their own life’s purpose and potential and calling, and if you’re interested, you can find my ebook on Amazon.

My Call to Adventure & Meeting with My Mentor

“The hero’s journey always begins with the call. One way or another, a guide must come to say, ‘Look, you’re in Sleepy Land. Wake. Come on a trip. There is a whole aspect of your consciousness, your being, that’s not been touched. So you’re at home here? Well, there’s not enough of you there.’ And so it starts.” ~ Joseph Campbell

As a coach, healer, and author, I help introverts who are hearing a call from the great beyond, a call to service and/or adventure, to feel empowered to move further along their s/hero’s journey so they can ultimately fullfill their mission, and transform their life, and share the elixir they’ve found with the rest of the world.

the Call of the Lapis Lazuli ebook.I’ve written The Call of the Lapis Lazuli, the prequel, a short, short story ebook, to inspire my readers to consider their own journey, life’s purpose, spiritual calling, and potential.

In The Call of the Lapis Lazuli, I tell the story of my own heroine’s journey, from the very beginning, before I was even born, when I first heard the call to adventure of living the human life of Maria Koropecky, when I met with my mystical and magical mentor, my Guardian Angel, Caliel.

I wrote The Call of the Lapis Lazuli because I believe guardian angels are assigned to each of us to watch over us, protect us, and guide us, throughout our lives. I also believe we’ve each answered a call and have accepted a mission that will help fill a need and make the world a better place, and our guardian angels are here to support us on our journey.

Angels are universally recognized spiritual beings and appear as messengers in most religions and cultures around the world. However, if you are uncomfortable with the idea of angels, use the word “mentor” instead in this story. :)

To me, angels are a comfort and when I was 13, an old fan caught fire in my bedroom in the middle of a humid, Ottawa night while I was sleeping, and somehow, I woke up and calmly said, “my fan’s on fire,” and then my father came in and took the burning fan outside before things had a chance to get out of hand or cause any damage. The next day, my father told me about guardian angels and how maybe a guardian angel stepped in that night and helped protect me and my family. I’ve believed in angels ever since.

One day recently, as I was researching the healing and metaphysical properties of gem stones and crystals, I came across the actual name of my guardian angel, “Caliel.” I discovered, quite unexpectedly, that my birthday and Lapis Lazuli’s share the same guardian angel. I was astounded because it never occurred to me that Guardian Angels actually have names, let alone be associated with gem stones!

Once my guardian angel had a name, suddenly things felt a little more personal, like there’s someone on my team who has my back, and I envisioned a conversation that may have taken place in spirit between me and my guardian angel, somewhere outside of space and time, before I was conceived and born, about my mission in life. This 10-page story is my call to adventure and my meeting with my mentor and this is how I imagined our conversation went.

This story is very personal to me and although this memoir is about me, my story, and my journey, it’s also about you, your story, and your journey.

Perhaps you’re at a place in life where:

  • You’re thinking about the next chapter in your life; or
  • You feel like adventure is calling or like you’re being called to service but don’t know your next steps; or
  • You’re looking for a transformational experience that will catapult you on to your hero’s or heroine’s journey.

I hope my short story, The Call of the Lapis Lazuli will encourage and inspire you to:

  • Find, discover, or answer your own calling and embark on your own hero’s/heroine’s journey;
  • Find meaning and purpose in your life and work and get clear on your own mission of why you’re here and what you came to do; and
  • Create a life you can get excited about based on your own intuition, insights, ideas, values, purpose, and vision.

If you’ve had enough of living a mediocre life and believe there’s something more out there for you, then this story might get you thinking. Life’s too short to sit on the sidelines and wonder what if I…? Here’s your chance to be the hero or heroine in your own life!

I also have some recommendations that I’m happy to share that may help you move farther along your adventure. Please contact me and let’s have a conversation.
