Author Biography

In August 2013, Candice M. Sanderson’s life changed in a ten-minute period of time. When her training as a psychologist failed to explain these events, she reluctantly followed the breadcrumbs down a path which resulted in an extraordinary adventure into the unknown. The Reluctant Messenger chronicles her expedition across a vast expanse of universal consciousness that resulted in new truths about life that she thought she had known so well.

The Reluctant Messenger: Tales from Beyond Belief: An Ordinary Person’s Extraordinary Journey Into The Unknown by Candice M. Sanderson is a fascinating book about the epic, life-changing journey of the author while being a conduit for spiritual messages. This book reveals the story of incredible tales from beyond belief that invite us to consider that we are actually more spiritual than physical. Apart from unfolding her own personal journey, the book shares the messages received by Candice, copied straight from her journals and transcribed from her recordings. The cosmic patterns, communicating with spirits, and the awareness that true life is timeless and formless will make you wonder about what exists beyond this universe.

The book is a must-read for readers who are curious to learn more about spirituality, awakening, and enlightenment. The author’s perception about human consciousness and spiritual understanding are both profound and insightful and will give readers a different spiritual journey. The author’s experiences are proof of the indelible link that exists between the two worlds. The book gives hope to readers about how dreams can open doors to these magical realms filled with boundless ideas which will help to bring positive change for all humanity, and sometimes the valuable lessons that can be learned through these dreams can be enriching.

I found the book enlightening and I thought it makes a good read for all those who are planning to embark on a spiritual journey. The author’s words and experiences will make readers reflect, contemplate, and introspect as they seek for answers to their questions and ponder about the spiritual dimensions that exist.

Understanding human consciousness more deeply is a common quest, yet it is not uncommon for books to present the topic in terms too complex for readers to grasp. This book is different as the topic is explained in clear and comprehensible terms. Author Candice M. Sanderson shares her spiritual awakening journey in the uplifting book, The Reluctant Messenger - Tales from Beyond Belief: An ordinary person’s extraordinary journey into the unknown. Working as a school psychologist, the author shares how her seemingly ordinary life transforms into one of amazing synchronicities and life lessons.

The messages that she receives from The Muses Within are both universal and personal; she learns to see the significance of many events within her own life. A thorough explanation of energy and vibration, as well as messages pertaining to Candice’s family, are shared. From interacting with angels at her husband’s death to information about her little granddaughters, these personal experiences add to the genuineness of her story.

The authentic voice within this book is its greatest quality. Candice writes in an easy to read flowing style, often starting her writing with a cup of coffee in hand or pulling out her cellphone to record a new message from The Muses. Although the imparted information is vitally important, the reader learns it is also accessible to all people. And, it may be imparted in unexpected ways. The Reluctant Messenger by Candice M. Sanderson provides exceptional insights into the oneness of all. It truly is a gem and will benefit all spiritual seekers.

The Reluctant Messenger by Candice M. Sanderson, treated as a trustworthy contributor to the massive influx of spiritual guidance offered by transcendent sources, is most noteworthy for both its precision and its incisiveness, as well as its inclusiveness. Most seasoned spiritual seekers in this time of rapid “download” and energetic transformation are at least tangentially familiar with the basic topics Ms. Sanderson addresses. That this author is the active recipient of much non-verbal knowledge and somewhat esoteric information (at first, a rather unwilling participant, to say the least,) speaks to the extremely difficult task she then assumes of presenting a great deal of complex information clearly to the public while also making it highly accessible to the lay reader. She fulfills her task perfectly.

Reminiscent of the massive coverage given to these subjects by Dolores Cannon, The Reluctant Messenger mirrors some of the same information whereby Candice M. Sanderson derives and lends further credibility, such as: the effect of energy frequency and vibration on personal transformation, the nature of consciousness in all living and material forms, the relevance of angels and other higher beings in a perceptible global transformation, the prophetic qualities of ancestral wisdom traditions and teachings, not to mention the purely personal transformative guidance consequent to ego-surrender, compassion, and sincere prayer. Told with down-to-earth clarity and candid revelation, even when Ms. Sanderson expects a reception of ridicule (e.g. for those fairies and elementals referenced by her transcendent tutors,) her book makes a great primer for anyone wanting to explore deeper issues of spiritual guidance and transformation.
