Sacred Vow Paperback – October 1, 2006
|New from||Used from|
From the Publisher
The most significant event of your life calls to you from barely beyond your perception . . . both imminent and impossible.
A countless number of alternate/parallel realities exist in the very space before our eyes. Many of these alternate realities are unaware of each other, but inhabitants in some are not only aware, but interact with alternate realities for the good of the whole. It is possible for the proper combination of energetic interactions to open up our perceptions of these alternate lives/worlds.
Ian Sarin finds that he has opened such a portal. He realizes that he has not accidentally achieved this expanded reality perception. Not only is he aware of and interacting with a parallel world, but the woman he visits with, Katerina, is a member of a culture structured around a monastic order of mystical women, the Sisterhood. Members of this order are highly attuned to the needs of universe they live in and have historically assisted in healing a periodic rift in the Collective Consciousness . . . A breach that threatens us all . . . Since antiquity, when called by the Collective, the Sisterhood has performed a ritual to bring together two individuals from disparate realities but of one spirit, a member of their order and a second person who has received a chosen message from the Collective. Unaware of any such communication, Ian is that second individual at this time in history.
Sacred Vow is a journey toward our one true love . . . in its infinite expressions
From the Author
This novel was intended to be a five thousand-word exercise, preparing me to return to several pre-existing manuscripts after a delay. Sacred Vow had more to tell and believed its story was important. Several times the story grew beyond my intended limit. I objected, eager to return to my recently neglected writings. Eventually I was lured into following.
Weeks later, hiking with a friend, I told him of some of the views unfolding in this new book. After listening attentively, he said, "Do you really believe this is the way it works?" We continued deeper into the woods, and I gave his question thought. I was a little surprised at the answer I finally realized. I said, "Until I saw this information in the story, I can't say that I had any such ideas. But now, yes, I think this is a truth." So I followed Sacred Vow, became familiar with the people and their stories, learned from their teachings, and traveled where they led. Just when I was willing to abandon all my earlier tales for this new adventure, Sacred Vow gently brought me back to where it had commandeered me . . . at the opening of the book I had been working on before its arrival.

This book tells not just one story,, but many.
Through the ceremony of brewing a cup of tea, a Man journeys into Timelessness,
drawn to his One love.
Two souls who have committed themselves to the love they've
created, find each other again and again. A sacred vow
has been made, and will draw them together through many lifetimes.
Some of the lives are ones that anyone would have loved to have created, full of love,
while some lives have been walked with sublime differences, and everything has changed.
Not the plain, ordinary reincarnation stories, with one life following another,
but sometimes congruent life paths, with many outcomes, culminating in an usual meeting of perfect love,
with the help of a bit of magic.
Not with the usual storybook ending, as is fitting for two timeless souls.
Sacred Vow appeals to wondering about the possibilities that love, and a bit of magic, can create.
When chosen by the Crone Mother to perform a ritual, Katrina begins her frantic search for the answer to settle the rift in the Collective Consciousness. Having trained for this high honor in the monastic order of mystical women, she reserves her position by seeking and finding her understudy. In discovering their bond, Katrina comes to the realization that it will be through their one spirit, and one true love that will determine the future of her world and his.
Ian, a computer programmer, has been preparing for their meeting without an order to guide and instruct him. Unknown to him, this true love bond leads him to understand a dream of their union. For years, he has prepared their meeting place in his study so that the energy and timing of their visits will happen.
The couple transcends their parallel realities and become aware of their bond, which at first is limited in contact and lacking in conversational abilities. Through future visits, their love proves to be everlasting and such that they both risk great harm to themselves to reunite. Finally, they discover the reason for their meeting is for the good of all, and Ian's dream proves the means needed for their safety and continuous.
There exists more than "one truth." It can be defined differently by each perceiver. Truth is such until it is replaced by the next revelation. In our world, one cannot be so vain as to believe that there are only truths and non-truths.
Mr. Walters conveys the reality of mystical worlds and our interaction with them very eloquently. He states that there is "one true love in its infinite expression," meaning there is one connection, above all others that can make us feel whole, like our full selves. This book is highly recommended for the reader seeking a love story that knows no limits. As a metaphysical novel, one can expand their views of worlds and civilizations existing with us, and how we may affect those close to us with or without our knowledge.
"Sacred Vow" is highly recommended, and a sequel would be much welcomed.
When two parallel worlds break the barriers to co-exist as one, only true love can provide the solution to the rift between them. Having achieved this goal, it is with sadness that this union between soul mates cannot continue in the ways of our world. It is with gladness and thanks that a love so true can choose to sacrifice itself for the good of us all. "Sacred Vow" will bring a positive message to all to live each moment to its fullest potential.

When Ian realizes that a kindred spirit and his true love is reaching out to him from another world, he goes to great lengths to reach back. Even though he risks his own health at one point and perhaps his life, Ian searches to find a way to be with his beloved Katerina. This book was a wonderful new experience and a completely different type of novel for me. It was also a pleasure meeting C.G. Walters in person at a local book signing.
