Guided ...WINNER 2017 Int'l Body/Mind/Spirit Book Award. Book cover spirit photo captured by: Linda Deir in 1994 In a dream Linda's Spirit Guide Angel said they appeared so the "World Could Believe." Just 20 months old, Linda's life was in danger. She couldn't remember her mother ever holding her; only beating her for reasons her young mind was unable to comprehend. Unloved, abused and out of options she ran away from home. Two policemen found her miles from home, barefoot, in diapers, running down the median of a busy California expressway. When asked where she was going, she answered, "I'm going to find my daddy, something's wrong with mommy!" Only after bribing her with candy did she point out how to get back to her house where her mother pretended to be grateful she was returned home. However, when the police were assured she was safe, her mother beat her unconscious. Waking up on the floor, she found herself right back in the hell she tried to escape. Now, completely out of options, she cried out loud for help. To her surprise, they answered. They all surrounded her. She felt loved and safe for the first time in her life. Linda no longer felt like a victim. They told her, "Life will get better for you as you get older if you can make it through childhood," a prophecy - an eerie warning. GUIDED has strong parallels to another famous story, Cinderella: All the key characters and lessons of the great Disney fable are represented in GUIDED. Linda, the target of an evil mother’s torture. A father who let her down. An older sibling, who’s filled with arrogance, conceit, and egotism, fulfills the part of Cinderella’s mean step-sisters. Cinderella’s fairy godmother was Linda's Spirit Guide Angels leading her to a successful happy life. Then she meets her Prince. A recipient of child abuse, Linda's story is a raw, honest and transparent journey into an unconventional life of self-discovery, self-empowerment, and self-trust. Knowing her Guides were on her side, she chose to be raised by them and not the dysfunctional family she was born into. The first time Linda dared to tell her story, GUIDED is a riveting true story of triumph over extreme adversity. Rising above dysfunctional family relationships, escaping home as a teen in crisis and becoming a self-taught business phenomenon in a man's world by age 19 and beyond. She achieved far more than even she imagined … knowing she was being guided. Her challenging childhood would become the foundation fulfilling the rest of their prophecy - "Life will get better for you as you get older." All possible from a higher way of thinking, influenced by her spirit guide angels her role models.
