The Soul Speaks
About the Book
The Soul Speaks captures moments from the author’s life when she was healing and recovering from mental illness that began when she was battling with a brain tumour, adjusting to life as a single mother after a sudden marriage breakdown due to domestic violence, and facing rejection and disownment from family due to her choice to embrace Islam as her chosen spiritual path. During this healing phase, she worked on herself and received professional help to overcome substance addiction, suicidal ideation, and violent outbursts as a result of Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder related to triggers from her childhood experiences of familial inter-generational paedophilia. She began writing these poems and reflections to make sense of her life and to share with her readers about hope of recovery and healing. She now dedicates her life in service to others as a clinical nutritionist, counsellor, life-coach, and narrative therapist. To contact the author, visit www.princesslakshman.com.

traveler, and a qualified clinical nutritionist.
Well, that's what society says she is...
Princess has her own take on her story on who she is...
I am all of these and I am none of these.
In my ever-evolving search for truth,
I commit to
living my purpose - to read, write, speak and
travel under the guidance of my truth.
They say a writer's life is solitary.
I say my writing life
is where I am in company
with all that was and
all that is to come.
it is where I experience the now.
