Expect the EXTRAORDINARY by Sue Pighini is a fascinating look at how her encounters with angels, extraordinary people, and the world of horses changed the way she lived her life, and can change the way you live yours too.
Sue first heard the voice of an angel telling her how to save her life when she was struck by lightning, next when she was being held up at gunpoint, and third, when she needed to stop and seek treatment for what turned out to be a melanoma. She not only followed the advice that led to her surviving in all three cases, but she realized why she was being saved – to share the message that we are not alone.
After surviving cancer, Sue Pighini changed her life’s direction, leaving the corporate world to explore a spiritual path. She became a life coach and helps others find the courage to change and live the life of their dreams.
Especially interesting is how Sue became an Eagala Equine Specialist and offers horses to partner with humans for healing of emotional and physical challenges at her Livin’ the Dream Ranch. Sue’s personal relationship with Skye, her mare mentor, led me to a much deeper understanding and respect for the higher nature, intelligence and spirit of horses.
This book contains all the wisdom Sue has amassed, from her own experiences as well as from other inspiring life stories, master teachings, and animal messengers, to help us all get out of our “comfort zone” and fuel our passion for living an authentic life. Sue offers Ten Sacred Insights to help you listen to your own spiritual guidance and to better understand your life’s purpose and how you can go forward on your own path to personal freedom.
Here, Sue Pighini, answers my questions about Expect the EXTRAORDINARY:
1) What inspired you to write this book?
I was inspired originally to help my client base/my audiences to understand that we are never alone. We just need to tap into our angelic guides by gently asking them to be by our side when we need/want to connect to a higher power.
2) What message would you like readers to take away from the book?
That life is more than just the physical. We are spiritual beings FIRST having a physical experience. That we each have choices for change – we just need to be fearless in our pursuit of whatever we deeply desire.
3) Why do you think fear is such a part of our lives – what are we essentially afraid of?
Fear is all about the unknown. If we tap into our hearts, we will connect with our angelic realm and they will guide us to the exact path we want to be on. We humans are often more afraid of living than dying.
Know that each one of us have the power to live life exactly as we desire if we JUST TAKE SOME CHANCES FOR CHANGE.
4) How does an angel connection help overcome our fears?
When we connect to a power that is greater than ourselves – our soul/higher power, animal angels, divine angelic beings – we know that we will be protected. We therefore just need to listen to our deep intuition (which resides in our hearts) to get a feel of whether something is good for us or not.
5) What do you think is the best way to connect with angels?
I connect today by going inside to my heart and asking whatever question I may have. These wonderful angelic beings reside right next to us, usually over our right shoulder. Their essence lives in our hearts.
6) Did you believe in angels before the first time you had an angelic intervention?
I knew nothing about angels before I was struck by lightning and had a near death experience. The angelic presence that saved my life came to me audibly because “her” voice was so insistent and very ancient in “her” choice of words.
7) Can you explain how you saw angelic presences in the world of horses?
Horses, as with all animals, are pure energy – no ego. Their world is black and white, and they expect you to be as truthful in your path in life as they are. Horses teach us to be all we can be as empowered humans. When you are in the presence of a 1,200-pound animal, you learn to be very present in your focus at that moment. You are learning all about your authentic self.
8) What tool do you think is most important to get on a Path of Passion?
The most important advice I have given all of my clients/audiences is to take chances in life. True self-knowledge of what you can accomplish comes from living on the edge, at least a little.
