Mystical Writer & Storyteller
Cheryl Lafferty Eckl shares a few notes about herself and her journey as a mystical writer and storyteller
and becoming an award-winning author, ecstatic poetess and twin flames romance novelist.
Growing up as an only child in the days when Littleton, Colorado, was a sleepy, rural town, I always knew that I wanted to pursue a more than ordinary life. But I hadn’t a clue what that journey would look like. With the advantage of hindsight, I realize now that I have managed to pack several lifetimes into this single one.
I have been a singer-actress, executive assistant, professional development trainer, life coach, workshop facilitator—and now a mystical writer of poetry and prose. As I contemplate these different occupations, the common thread woven through each of them is that of storyteller—what the Irish call a seanchaí.
Every song I sang or course I taught, every chapter or book or poem I was inspired to compose, has been a story, and a heartfelt expression of my Celtic soul who delights in the written and spoken word.
For the past two decades, I have been writing and speaking my way deeper into the mysticism that has come profoundly alive during my travels in Ireland. In the thin places of the Emerald Isle that my soul calls Home, a deep, inner presence has quickened—enriching the seeker’s path I have walked for most of my life.
In moments of sublime communion with ethereal realms of the Unseen, I have found the True Self that connects my humanity with the spirituality that is the source and goal of all my work—and which I am delighted to share.
Above all, I am a creator of sparks of illumination and the champion of self-transcendence as the story each of us was born to tell. My sincerest hope is that my books will bring you insight, inspiration and joy on the journey through your own extraordinary life.
I am honored to be a guest on the “Authors Over 50” podcast hosted by Julia Daily. Julia asks great questions that allowed me to talk about all of my work. You can listen to it here.
