As the illusion of the material world melts, communion with angels, ancestors, teachers and masters becomes common place when Lynne Cockrum-Murphy shows we are all guided throughout our lives. This awareness and self-realization is available to anyone who seeks. Unfolding the Mystery of Self – We Are Never Alone is a descriptive illustration of the author’s development of her spiritual path, intuitive awareness and deep inner peace. In an easy-to-read style, this book illuminates transition from her early life traumas and discouragement to gracious awareness of All That Is. Sharing wisdom from spiritual teachers and insights from mystical experiences, the possibilities beyond our physical lives become real.
Some of us walk a unique, decidedly spiritual path. By choice, some us create a spiritual life without religion and stand on our own. In my case, I have chosen a path to Christ consciousness or enlightenment.
In the loneliness, fear and uncertainty of my teen years I found solace in spiritual teachings, eventually discovering that we are not alone. Now I know we have teams of supporters, angels, guides, teachers, family members and the many aspects of God guiding us the whole time. If we tune in we can hear, see and recognize them. Not only are we not alone, we are a thread in a great tapestry that is richer, because we exist. I came to rely on and trust the beautiful unseen beings and live in concert with them as I move towards my goal of self-realization.
Over the decades, many times I looked to others for guidance and direction; spiritual teachers always responded. When I questioned and wondered where I was in the process, I read the writings of some of the greatest teachers and drew from their experiences. A few even categorized the stages of spiritual growth in their books. It felt awkward though studying the greats while considering myself much more ordinary than they. How could I aspire to live a life like Jesus, Buddha, or more recent greats like Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa or Yogananda? I see myself as a much more ordinary American, female, teacher, and average citizen. What does the path to enlightenment look like for people like me?
On the whole this book describes some of my spiritual process and experiences in order to provide an illustration of the path and how I discovered we are never alone. Since we are in a time of ascension, then more road maps and guides will smooth and shed light on the way for others and encourage us to continue seeking, practicing and recognizing we are exactly in the perfect time and perfect place right now. Even as I continue to move forward, releasing the illusions of this world, I delight in the joy of the present.

Unfolding the Mystery of Self is an autobiographical exploration of the self. Lynne uses her own life journey to explore her changing view of self, healing, and God.

The book, perhaps as an extension of the author, has an energy that nurtures and supports its reader in a mysterious way. A must read for anyone thinking their life is trivial, looking to expand their view of spirituality, or understand their healing talents.

A short but powerful true story of loss, starting with a house fire that killed Lynne Cockrum-Murphy's sisters and father and left her badly burned when she was just 30 months old, and follows the life that grew out of that tragedy. Instead of giving in to a family history of dysfunction she writes about dealing with loss, family alcoholism and chaos, an eating disorder and shows that there is a way to move beyond the events of the past.
Interwoven in the story are actions, steps, tools and even a reading and movie list to help you move forward into a life filled with spirituality, meaning and purpose. The story is a model of hope, action and success.
