Dying isn’t the easiest thing to do in life, but when you are a seventeen-year-old young woman, ready to take on the world, death isn’t expected.

As Belle says, “These are my lumps.”

Yet in death as in life, love becomes the driving force of everything Belle holds dear.

When Belle discovers the mystic world of Core Shamanism, she discovers ways of being in any reality whether here on Earth or beyond. Through her learning with Rachel, a Cherokee Shaman and Medicine Woman, Belle is able to meet her death with grace, beauty, and a regal bearing that is known only among Goddesses.

Belle learns that all paths are true for the believer, no matter the pathway.

In the end, Belle discovers the Universal truth: there is always love.
