Letting Go into Perfect Love by Gwendolyn Plano

Recently I was asked “What did you struggle the most with while writing Letting Go into Perfect Love?”
This was an interesting question for me because my book is about the journey of life, and as any of us can attest, the journey includes deep sorrows. I cried a lot when I wrote my book, because my heart was free to do so. But my struggle was not about sorrows.
The most difficult writing task was sharing my experiences of angels. My career in education was built on logic and proven facts; my experiences of angels defied such knowledge. To publically share these encounters meant risking my academic credibility. The angel visitations were like nothing I had ever known before, and I felt very vulnerable writing about them. Yet, these ethereal beings were integral to my life story. In the end, I chose to speak my truth and let readers decide as they may.
It feels risky to share that which cannot be quantified or analyzed in the traditional manner. But I wonder, in sheltering our hearts from possible judgment or rejection, are we holding this most precious part of ourselves captive?
Since publishing my book, many readers have shared their spiritual experiences with me. I’ve listened to stories about deceased loved ones, about angelic interventions, about unexplained healing phenomena. And though each story is unique, there is commonality. They, like me, realize that we are never alone, and we are deeply loved.

  1. Hi Gwen! Well done you for speaking your truths. Life is so much more than logic, and–after all–science was seen as sorcery not too many years ago! I firmly believe that we humans don’t know the half of what is possible yet. At one time in my life I nearly died, and it became very clear to me at that point that we are not alone. Thanks for sharing your story. Have a great SPOTLIGHT tour! 🙂

    Ella, thanks so much for hosting Gwen today! 🙂

  2. Great post Gwen. I’m glad you were brave enough to write what was in your heart. Ella, thanks for hosting today.

  3. “But I wonder, in sheltering our hearts from possible judgment or rejection, are we holding this most precious part of ourselves captive?” Those words will be my meditation this week. Thank you Gwen for your honesty and your beautiful book.

    And Ella, I, too, thank you for hosting.

  4. You grabbed my interest again, Gwen! I have always had more than a passing interest in angels. I’ve not had an encounter with one, although I’m sure the experience would be life-altering. Thanks for having the courage to share your stories! Thanks for hosting, Ella!

  5. There are more things in heaven and earth… than are dreamt of in (our) philosophy… you are one courageous lady Gwen!

    Lovely warm and mellow setting you’ve provided here Ella 🙂

  6. Gwen I had a spiritual experience once in the most unlikely of places. I was so overwhelmed with it that a friend who was watching me said I had been touched by God. What are you suppose to do after that? I don’t know but I met my husband after that and my life took a turn for the better. So I do believe that we are not alone in this world. Some of us can tap into it while others can’t. What an interesting topic for discussion. I can’t wait to read your story. Congratulations Gwen Spotlight Author!

  7. I think I lost you somehow, but I didn’t forget you. I hope your tour is going on well. I just started reading your book. Thank you Ella for hosting her.
