In SANITY LOST AND FOUND by author Tarra Judson Stariell we are able to see how a series of events put her in a place where her life was no longer her own---and all the difficulty that came with that. Love landed her under the control of a man that took away her freewill and her ability to even think that God could love her because of all that she was going through. Thankfully she was able to find her way out, and now she is helping others to realize that all is not lost for them, either.
There are so many layers in this book: love, faith, family and most importantly FORGIVENESS. Forgiveness of self and of others, both of which are needed if we are able to move forward in our lives and realize that love and happiness can be ours.
Definitely a reminder that nothing is impossible, Tarra's journey is one that should inspire us to never give up on others or ourselves.
Tarra starts her story with a description of her childhood, which was spent on her grandparents’ ranch. Her parents were not very loving to her at that time, but they were not blatantly unkind either, subsequently they divorced. Tarra met a man called Graham, who worked with the Peace Corps in Colombia. She fell in love with him and followed him t o Colombia, also to work for the Peace Corps.
The relationship with Graham fizzled out, but Tarra’s commitment to her work as a Peace Corps volunteer was very strong, so she continued to stay on in Colombia. She also developed an interest in the paranormal, fueled by a friend, who was interested in UFO research. One day, she had a vision where she saw two pillars of light and a clear voice that told her that she needed “to return home and share with her family and others that life as she knew it on Planet Earth would end if humans did not change the way they were living.” This message impelled Tarra to return to the USA in order to deliver her message. This was a time when environmental pollution was not the issue it is today and she found no takers for her insights. After a brief tryst with est, Tarra moved to Point Loma in California where she rented a condominium. There she met Solar in order to get a psychic reading and her life changed entirely.
For the worse.
With the objective of living up to her vision, Tarra did everything in her power and beyond, to adhere to Solar’s strange ideas of cleanliness and maniacally manipulative personality because she wanted to please God. She voluntarily underwent a pernicious kind of physical, emotional and mental abuse for months on end. How she emerged from that extreme form of dependency on a psychopath and mended her ties with her family, who, mortified by her physical condition, were more than willing to help, is the subject of this book.
This book is very well written and readable.Tarra tells her story as it is, without glorifying anybody, least of all, herself. Her story, affirms the power of forgiveness and unconditional love. Tarra forgave her torturer, but made it clear that there was to be no more interaction between them.
Books in this genre are growing more and more popular, but this one is more comprehensive and more detailed than many others of its’ kind.
read this amazing book in less than a week. During that time I found myself pacing, attempting to comprehend the incomprehensibility of
how anyone could endure abuse, emotional pain and loss of one's true self. It is no less stunning to learn that the author would
recover, return to health and be fully alive, connected and whole. So often terrible things happen and we fail to share them.
But with openness, courage, dignity and honesty, the author brings her story to life as though the events were happening in
the present. If the MeTooMovement has a library this book belongs in it, although it won't be sitting on the shelf
for long. Whether one has experienced abuse, entrapment, or is searching to become informed on the topic Sanity Lost and Found
is an instructive and unforgettable read.
