    This book is about you. It was channeled through me, but it is ultimately about you, and it can change your life! I learned the body can heal itself, that life is complex yet simple and there are many spiritual surprises, once you go within, some I never thought possible. I have been directed by The Angels to write this book about my two-year journey of my progressive illness that was unnamable and undiagnosed. I couldn't walk, I could hardly talk and barely think straight. I learned to heal myself through many different modalities. Reading this book can change your life! I learned about our mind, body and soul-how they are one as we are one; there is no separation. I wish you love, light, joy and peace ~ Namaste

    Zero drama. 
    Drama’s for the movies. 
    Not for me. 
    I’m Riley Johnson. 
    I’ve got it all. 
    Brand new jet. Exotic cars. Luxury penthouse. Black card. A different aspiring actress (or two) in my bed every night. 
    I run Captive Films. 
    Where we leave you begging for more. 
    Or maybe that’s just me. 
    My life is perfect. 
     . . . Until she walks back into it.
