About Me; the Author
I have had a hard life; I have experienced intense pain and loss. I grew up poor; my mother was mentally ill and my father was very abusive. My mother took her own life when was 13; my sisters and my brother and I stayed with my father until we all ran away into the foster system. I have known hardship. I have always felt lonely to some degree or another. I entered into some very dysfunctional relationships; my marriage being one of them. It was not physical abuse but intense emotional and financial for control. He left me. I grew. I could go into detail but it boils down to that.
I have a blog a website www.sexassacred.com just goggle gracieackerman and I will pop right up; my blog will give you all the details of my struggles in the last couple of years. My blog also goes into deep spiritual insights and into some very real situations in my life.
It is amazing how nothing happens by accident; my blog was like a training round for my book; it was my school for gearing me up to write this book. This book came about through years of coincidences that were really synchronicities ; that is how the Universe works.
When I was a very little girl in the 1970s the sitcoms for Isis and Wonder Woman hit the air waves. I was five, my son’s age now when I watched the first episode of Wonder Woman; I cried when it was over; to me it was like going home. I felt homesick after watching it; I felt the same with Isis later on. I had very vivid dreams of flying when I was a child and I still do today. I still have intense spiritual dreams.
When I was in grade school I would chose to do reports on places like Egypt, Greece, India and Rome. I would paint pictures of the Gods and Goddesses of Ancient times; my paintings were very good and accurate for a young child. I felt home sick for these places and for these times.
To this day I long for romance; to me romance is a display of passion through the imagination; the imagination being our passage way to magic. In our world today the art of the courtship; of romancing for the pure sake of sensuality has been forgotten; the true forms of erotic love abandoned. I long to bring romance back to life; for all of us; we need tenderness and love. We crave compassion; passion, lust and love!
I have always been a sensual woman; I find the sunshine on my face a sensual experience; champagne on my tongue; sweet and bitter good chocolate, a hot steamy salty bath; sensual everyday life experiences that I am grateful for. I love being naked; I love good food and laughter. I love, love!
Romance is experiencing these things with a lover; it is loving and wooing for the pure sake of the imaginative, magical mating dance. The birds and the bees do it still; why don’t we? It’s fun!
As an artist I have learned how to make life a sensual experience; through my past pain I have learned how to turn pain into a positive experience. The sensual and the sexy are everywhere an in every one of us; we can be any age to experience romance and love.
( From the book ~ The Goddess an Expression of the Divine Feminine ~ ) Available on Amazon.ca
Women don’t have to look like girls anymore or men like they did in their youth to be sexy and sensual. Life it’s self is the sensual experience; A walk with the one you love is romantic.
I wrote this book to bring us the rose colored glasses of love; put them on with me and bring the Gods and the Goddesses back to life.
Let me take you back to magic!
