Within each of us lies a great power. The power to determine who we are, progress in our healing journey, and create the life we want to live. The power for change.

Connecting with that inner power isn’t always easy, especially when it’s been obscured by trauma. Sometimes you need guidance and support to find the power within you and learn to work with it rather than fearing it. Sometimes you need someone to support you through change.

Through their books, channeling services, and energy healing practices, River Lightbearer (nonbinary; they/them) and their guides, beings of light called Shiva and Pietkela, assist people in finding and reconnecting with that inner power. For years, River has been on their own journey of healing and connecting with their inner power, with the support of Shiva, Pietkela, and their other guides, beings who have worked with me since childhood and even in previous lifetimes. Through their books and services, River shares the tools they have gained in the hope of encouraging others to embark and continue on their own healing journeys. As a neurodivergent polyamorous nonbinary trauma survivor, River has extensively studied and researched trauma and is experienced in working with people who are neurodivergent, as well as people who are LGBTQ+ and/or live lives some might consider unusual.

No Fault, No Blame: Channeled Encouragement for Trauma Survivors

When you live a traumatizing life, it’s common to blame yourself for what you’ve experienced. Perhaps you believe you deserved it. Perhaps you’ve been told you created it.

In this book, beings of light Shiva and Pietkela, through their channel River Lightbearer, discuss and deconstruct the self-blame and condemnation trauma survivors might experience. You did not create what others have done to you. You did not deserve it. And healing is possible in your own time and your own way when you are ready.
