New Book, The Book of Positive Light: Remembrance of the Heart, written by Joel Ayala Ayapana, chronicles his amazing story of self-rediscovery: "When one is able to repeatedly step into the purity and heartened space of genuine and heightened awareness, miracles manifest, conscious evolution becomes inevitable, and the revelations to one's spirit becomes revolutionary within the simplicity of its own essence. Awakening then becomes of it, to where the destination of such a path when one has answered the Calling, and unfolds to reveal the ripening of one's Universal Truths." The Book of Positive Light: Remembrance of the Heart is an endearing and inspiring book, which shall be celebrated for many years on end. It is a heart-felt 363 day journal and memoir, covering a time of rediscovery within Joel Ayapana’s life, between 2008 and 2013. It begins by chronicling the end of his karmic struggles when he stumbles across a magazine article, one late night shift as a nurse. This article bore the panoramic glory of Machu Picchu, Peru, which sparks remarkable change from within him because of its wonder and splendor. Through journal writing, positive thinking, and meditation (with the consciousness of the heightened energies of this sacred ancient site subconsciously implanted within his psyche), he begins to acknowledge the value of this newly acquired life when he allows himself to release and to contently listen from within the calming beat of his spirited existence as he learns to alchemically manifest the creation of miracles, attract the fruits of heightened consciousness, and in tapping into that Universal Connection by actively living within the makings of an Enlightened Heart. As he builds enough momentum in surpassing that threshold of Enlightenment from the heightened energies that he begins to persistently exude, Synchronicity then guides him four years later to September 2012, to that heightened perspective from throughout those same Andean mountain peaks. This significant time of the Fall Equinox, just before the anticipated Mayan date of December 21st, 2012, had proven to be one of the most enlightening of moments within those five years of his life. One would think that the series of days which would transpire during this pilgrimage trip would be the “tell-all tale” in revelation, but such an ending, rather, should only be so predictable. What transpires, rather, becomes the completing capstone to the magic and miracle of this endearing journey of Awakening and Truth.
