  • Deal with big life issues such as infertility

    ...And much more!

A message from Michelle just for you:

“I wanted to share my story with you, because it may be your story too. You may need to hear it told so you can recognise it for the first time, or if you’ve been on this journey a while, at a deeper, more connected level.

If this book can help you to discover how you can open up to a greater sense of Abundance and turn up your glorious light, then my heart will be full and my soul fulfilled!

And following the advice of the wonderful poet, Michael Leunig, I have let it out in this book, let it all unravel.

My hope is that it can be a path on which you travel, to define abundance for yourself and create it in full colour, on the canvas that is your life."
