Messages from My Heart
A Memoir of Healing & Transformation
About the Book
Threatened by an early childhood heart infection, Carolyn Bourns spends the first half of her life carefully building structures she has been told will keep her safe—husband, home, children, teaching career—but when she begins experiencing alarming heart arrhythmias at age forty-five, these structures start to dissolve, compelling her to take a close look at how safe and ideal her life really is. Follow Bourns as she recounts the extraordinary events that cast her out of the ordinary world of her birth and into the extraordinary world of the unseen as her heart continues to speak deeper truths.
About the Author
First time author, Carolyn Bourns is a speaker, thought leader and compelling voice for Health & Wellness. Her ability to deliver astute meanings and emotionally intelligent choices to resolve periods of crisis have put her trainings and consulting services in high demand.

Motivated by her own health challenges, and after witnessing a number of miraculous spontaneous remissions, Carolyn returned to academia and earned a master's degree in Consciousness Studies. In her twenty-plus years of private practice, Carolyn has helped hundreds of individuals sort through emotional factors, hidden core beliefs and complementary therapy options to discover their own capacity to self-heal and achieve radiant vitality and well-being.
