Today we talk about Forgotten Realms, a book by Iulia Roxana Sirghe published with our publishing house Europe Books.
Europe Books had the pleasure of interviewing the author, Iulia Roxana Sirghe, to get to know her better, where she found the inspiration to write her fantasy book Forgotten Realms, as well as how she chose the title of her book.
Below you can find our interview. Take a seat and enjoy your reading!!!
- What prompted you to write this fantasy book?
There are feelings I better express in poems. Writing this book, for me, was an opportunity for sharing my story and the spiritual process I was going through at that time. It all came as a flow of energy, thoughts, and feelings, messages received in meditation. The story is about a twin flame connection, two lovers that have to go through a spiritual journey, to be transformed and find themselves again. Of course, the journey of life takes us through many challenges and situations that trigger these changes to happen within us; and within spiritualism, we are to face the unseen realities, the darkest of our minds, and the other perspectives of the Creation. This book came to me, through my emotions, deep feelings, and connection with the Universe, Earth, Heaven, and Darkness, since I am aware of all Creation, both positive and negative, and in order to reach enlightenment, one must acknowledge the deepest darkness.
- What message did you want to send out with your book?
We are more than we perceive with our common senses. I believe each of the readers will understand there is a deeper level within ourselves where we are all connected and we share these forgotten realms. This is just a reminder of who we are, and of our source of Creation. Poetry has a beautiful way of expressing feelings and emotions, so it triggers the reader to open the heart and listen deep within the resonance of each word. It might remind the reader of other dimensional existence, forgotten truths that we do not hear about these days anymore so much. These poems are genuinely coming to the surface in a time of massive global change when the minds are so busy with a lot of obligations, worrying about the future to come and about the worldwide situation. Everything is moving so fast, that we forgot who we truly are within. What we are in the essence will help us manifest a better reality, but for this, there is a need for stillness and patience, and meditation.
- How did you choose the title of the book?
I didn’t. The story chose its name because of its intention for people to remember what was lost, forgotten. There are many dimensions in this Universe. We live on the 3rd dimension, as we see it and sense it, but there are many other dimensions we do not see, but we can sense. Forgotten Realms are those dimensions we do not see, but we can sense and experience as energy or spirits, but since our world distracts us with everything keeping ourselves busy, we have no time to remain still, meditate, and sense anything other, and it`s a pity we become unaware of the truth and we forget the essence. We lose ourselves into the Matrix, a rabbit hole of consuming and waste – which is an upside-down evolution towards self-destruction since we just run into existence without understanding its meaning on a deeper level. I do have faith in people`s understanding that there is a truth coming to the surface for us to remember and find ourselves back re-united with the whole to co-manifest a beautiful reality in alignment with everything that was forgotten – if we choose to remember. This is why the name.
- How did it feel to see your book published?
I was guided to publish these messages as well as I am guided to speak to people and try to help them to see the light in their darkness. I was guided to become a Spiritual Coach and study psychology and to take myself first into the process before I can be able to guide others. It was not an easy journey so far and I am still far away from my destination. Seeing my book published is just a natural consequence of my effort, work, and dedication to my process. This book has a part of my soul in it, and for me, there is love, fears, hope and strength, prayers, and healing. Like a journal for me to keep as a reminder of what I went through my spiritual process, available for others to read and understand if they resonate with these writings, they are not alone, we are many, we are together, and everything will be ok.
- Are you already working on a new novel?
No, not yet. Forgotten Realms is just the first part of the story, there is to be continued, but it takes time to see it all happening. It took more than a year for the first part to be manifested, and the second part is taking longer. So, I cannot be sure when I will be able to share it. I’ m officially working on other projects, but at the same time, I am still in the Spiritual Process that is helping me in creating these writings. This beautiful story of love is transforming lives from deep within the soul. As we are all body, mind, and spirit our body is our temple, and we are responsible to take good care of it, as the house of Gods, our mind is the one in charge of everything manifested, our actions, decisions and has to be coherent with our heart, but for this to be achieved, our spirit must expand, align and re-establish what we are. I am always working, but for the story to be completed, there is a need for patience, compassion, love, and strength.
