YOUNG MISTER WUGIDGEM DISCOUNT PROGRAM, SLAVES ON HORSEBACK-EPISODE 2, AND A PRAYER

Young Mister Wugidgem Book e-book for 99 cents

Since “shelter in place”, social distancing, and wearing masks began, my wife and I have managed well by going out for regular exercise, walking, and/or running in our neighborhood. We missed not being able to do this at our regular sites of nearby beaches and lagoons. We got excited when we heard the announcement beaches and lagoons would be opening with the same safety regulations. Opening day arrived, and we drove to the beach clad in masks, sunglasses, and hats. When we walked down the ramp, we were glad there were two roped-in paths, one down to the beach and the other up to the top, with about 20 feet of cement ramp in between, separating them. The beach was only moderately populated, socially distanced, and moving and but most people didn’t have masks on. I’m a runner, and I know our breathing, sweat, and wake spreads at least fifteen feet. We walked for 32 minutes, doing our best to keep a safe distance away from others. It was a stressful experience, and we haven’t gone back to the beach. Please join me in praying that all people come to realize masks protect them from others and others from them if they are infected.

Today I’m featuring my Young Adult Magical Reality Novel, Young Mister Wugidgem. Here is the link to a review:

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like Nelson DeMille . . .

Reviewed in the United States on February 26, 2019

A riveting thriller that I happened to read just after finishing Nelson DeMille’s THE CUBAN AFFAIR.

Chapman’s novel has it all — international intrigue; colorful, well-rendered characters; romance; suspense; the frenetic, edgy Manhattan-Greenwich scene, leavened with enough Bay Area — Stanford, spirituality, food, wine and coastal castles — to keep it fun throughout.

If you can’t wait to find out what happens, the e-book is discounted to $4.99 from the list price of $9.99. Here is the link:

TEEN FREEDOM-MAGICAL REALITY FANTASY-PLANNED DECEMBER, 2020 PUBLICATION

When “shelter in place” began, I started writing book eight of Adventures with Mr. Wugidgem, Teen Freedom. The major hero, James Wugidgem is in a bad place. His volatile temper is at an all-time low flash point. He abandoned his magical training. His sister, Sally pushes him to seek help from Louise, a veteran golden light magician. In this overwhelming time of the Covid-19 rampage, you might benefit from the same lessons James and Sally learned. For factual information on the meditation and affirmations process follow this link:

LINK TO PSYCHOLOGY TODAY

Teen Freedom is fiction, but the concepts have helped me. I hope it will be published by December, 2020. Here is an excerpt:

“What did you do to stop the anger?” James asked.

“The same thing you did two years ago but aren’t doing now,” Louise replied.

James sighed. “You mean meditations and affirmations.”

“Yep. But I hear you. I still have nightmares about the Kelly battle, although probably not as bad as yours. I get that meditations and affirmations take time and patience and become a “have-to” that you don’t want to do.”

James felt frustrated, not angry. “What do you suggest?”

Louise smiled. “As we used to say in my day, K-I-S-S, which means keep-it-simple-stupid. Resume doing your meditations. Do Orenda’s short-cut to get centered and just a few affirmations out loud after that. You’ll be done in five minutes.”

“Which affirmations?”

“The most important ones. First, ‘I love doing my affirmations and I repeat them regularly.’ Visualize yourself actually doing the affirmations. Second, ‘Affirmations work to improve my life.’ Again, visualize you are happy, because doing the affirmations does improve your life. Third, ‘I enjoy managing my anger, and I dispel it easily.’ Then visualize the anger shooting out of the top of your head. Do this twice a day. Before long, it will become a good habit again and you can add back in whatever affirmations you feel you need. It worked for me. I believe it will for you.”

James nodded his head and felt a glimmer of hope. “It just might,” he said.

“Let’s do a trial run right now,” Louise said. She looked at Sally. “Joining us?” she asked.

“Yep. I had forgotten about Orenda’s short cut.”

“Good. Sit on the bench and close your eyes. Breathe naturally. Focus primarily on listening to your breathing, here and now. Listen also the birds chirping, feel the gentle breeze caress your face, and whatever else your present senses bring you.”

She was silent for several moments. “Feel your feet on the ground. Relax them. Now feel the connection between your feet and the ground. Keep listening to your relaxed, natural breathing.”

She paused again. “Become aware of any pain in your body. Recognize it as pain. Do not judge it; it just is. Let it go and return to your breathing.”

This time, Louise was quiet slightly longer. Finally, she said, “Now you are centered. Let’s repeat the three affirmations together.”

When they finished, James and Sally opened their eyes and saw bright smiles on each other’s faces. Louise was also smiling. “I’d say you guys got it.”

“Yep,” said James. “I felt my pent-up anger shoot straight out the top of my head.”

Sally said, “Doing Orenda’s centering method sure makes it easier for me to visualize the reality of the affirmations and believe they do improve my life.”

If you’re interested in middle grade and young adult magical reality stories, take a look at book seven, Teen Transformation, or any other of the six books in the series. All the e-book versions are now discounted to $4.99 on Amazon. Here is the link to my Amazon author web page:

Sometimes the smiles are simultaneous.

EPISODE 20

Today, I’m prefacing this podcast with a link for everyone terrified and exhausted by all the misinformation and uncertainty our leaders are bombarding us with. This week I listened to a Zoom broadcast by Kristian Andersen, PHD, a genomic epidemiologist at Scripps Research here in San Diego titled Outsmarting Emerging Pathogens in an Interconnected World. My main takeaway was we are probably four years away from a truly effective vaccine. That was scary, but methodical and realistic. Somehow, I felt reassured. I urge you to listen. I believe you will have more peace of mind. Click on the link and scroll to Past Lectures at the bottom:

TEEN TRANSFORMATION EPISODE 18

EPISODE 18

I’m probably speaking for most of the world’s population when I say, “This pandemic is the worst personal crisis of my life. Every day is filled with fear and overwhelm.” During this trial, I have found a few actions and activities which work for me in dealing with helpless feelings. Here they are:

1. Begin the day by going outside with a cup of coffee. Spend the first ten minutes sipping the coffee and praying for love, strength, peace, guidance, and gratitude this day to be with all the people in your families and friends, by name, including yourself and the rest of humanity. Then say prayers asking for the same things all other creation.

2. Go back inside, get a second cup of coffee, and do ten minutes of positive affirmations which I call meditations. I know a program of positive, vividly visualized affirmations works. The most important ones are, “I love doing my affirmations,” and “Affirmations work to improve my life.” I learned these and other affirmations when I was in school and improved my mile time to 4:13.2 which was very good at the time. I just looked on the web for current information on positive affirmations and found a link to Psychology Today that may be interesting and enlightening to you:

           3. Eat a healthy, portion-controlled diet.

4. Get some form of exercise every day outside.
