Faye Schindelka is a wife and mother of two elementary school aged children. Her interests include art, tarot-card reading, singing/songwriting and writing. Poppies From Heaven is her first book.
As human beings, our biggest challenge is to understand how life and death are inextricably linked. For many, the devastating loss and grief surrounding the death of a loved one can open a portal to a hightened state of awareness that gives rise to extraordinary insights and reinforces a primordial affirmation - death heralds new life. In Poppies From Heaven, Faye Schindelka describes her own powerful journey to a spiritual awakening, following the death of her brother, Murray. In sharing this moving account of after-death communication, Schindelka reminds us that death can result in a positively transformative, life-affirming experience. (Annamaria Hemingway, Ph.D., author of Practicing Conscious Living and Dying and myths of the afterlife) Faye Schindelka has done a superb job of baring her soul on the difficult subject of death. It is never easy to deal with a loved one's death; yet she also gives the reader hope of the continuity of life. She had the remarkable good fortune of being a soul mate with her brother and ultimately of being able to communicate with him. Not only was this journey a life-affirming soul quest for her, but it also helps others to deal with their own grief by knowing their loved ones are in a better place. (Jody A.
