As well as being a Kinesiologist, you may have noticed I do a fair bit of writing.
A couple of years ago I had one of those “writerly” experiences I’d previously only read about – a character comes to life for the writer, and starts to tell their own story. However, I never expected that to happen to me.
One day when I was in the shower (a place where my psychic channel is always extra clear)…a little character appeared.
I’d been thinking about my little nieces, and the challenges of growing up in our current world, and Staria simply popped into my awareness.
She told me her name, what she looks like, why she had certain features, and about her stories of arriving on this planet and meeting three young girls (who happen to have the same name as my nieces!).
It was all very clear. I didn’t feel as if I was creating any of it. In fact, I reckon I just channeled the whole thing.
BUT I didn’t see myself as a fiction or children’s book writer
So I wrote down the bones of her stories, and told her “later”.
Staria’s been hanging out in my consciousness ever since, and every now and then she’d tell me another detail of her stories or what life was like on her planet. But I still didn’t feel like I knew when or where I’d write about her!
Then, not too long ago I was in the clinic, thinking about ways to help my clients outside of their sessions.
Especially the young children I work with. I’d been having a discussion with one young human about being afraid of monsters at night.
After her session I said to myself, “I wish I had something to give her to help her at home with this issue”.
At that point, Staria stepped forward, made a loud “ahem” noise, and told me she could help.
The whole thing unfolded from there…
Once I realised it was time for Staria to be drawn and made visible to other humans!
Excitingly once I got the message that it was time for Staria to be drawn, this little project just F L O W E D. And saying yes to this work has generated a lot of joy for me.
While her book is in the works, the first thing we’ve created is Staria Card #1.
Staria Cards are a way that Staria has chosen to reach out and help Earth children of all ages (including inner children). Each one deals with a specific issue that children can find challenging to manage. Staria is offering her take (often be in the form of a rhyme or a song).
The first Staria Card includes a stunning illustration of Staria on one side, and her brilliant Monster Banishing Song on the other.
Check out the magical gorgeousness…
This Staria Card is for anyone (of any age) who finds it a little tricky dealing with monsters at night. I had to contend with them when I was a kid, too!
Staria’s most important message is: HEARTS ARE IMPORTANT
Who are Staria Cards for?
As well as parents buying Staria Cards for their children, they’d be a useful tool for anyone who works with children.
From my own experience, Staria can be an amazing ice-breaker!
- You can buy Staria Cards from me in clinic (local pick up cost is $5 each),
- Or you can order from the Adventures of Staria website
They’re available as a single card, or a pack of 10.
Staria and I co-created her stories together, and she was beautifully illustrated by the amazingly talented Erica Webb.
