Zipacna'sLegacy is a book not only about a woman's quest to discover more about her spiritual self but also her connection to the earth and her reason for being here.While reading Jade's story, the reader is taken on a deeper journey and can't help but form questions of their own. I highly recommend Zipacna's Legacy whether you've ever questioned your traditional spirituality or simply enjoy learning about other traditions and cultures. This is not so much a research book as it is a pleasure to read and it teaches you something in the end without you realizing it. ~Rhonda Penders, President - The Wild Rose Press, Inc.thewildrosepress.com
From the Author
Because of this, and our intense love of reading, we decided to co-author a visionary fiction of a woman's discovery and growth of her spirituality. Kinda like me, but not at all like me. Mysterious, isn't it? I guess you have to read both books to see what I mean.
For over 20 years, I've been known for my intricately designed mystery plots. I thought that's where my writing-love resided. Well, it turns out I love love love the metaphysical, paranormal, new age genre too! So much so that together my husband and I have penned two more beyond Zipacna's Legacy: Search for Power to be released (January 2021), and Back to Center (April 2021)

I couldn't enjoy the book because the narrative was filled with grammar/spelling mistakes when the author attempted to translate to Spanish. Some sentences did not make sense; places were misspelled, the characters repeatedly jumped from formal speaking to informal (which does not exist in English). For example, at one point, one Mexican character says Missus, which is a term used by African Americans, not by Latinos or Mexicans. I appreciate the author's intention to immerse the reader into the culture, but these blunders and other misinterpretations deflated my interest and made the characters seem cartoonish.
At the age of thirty, Jade French inherited all that Zipacna owned -- his home and all his property. As Cindy Davis developed the plot in her unique novel, Jade learned that she inherited more than just physical property. Her Shaman grandfather through his Last Will and Testament launched Jade on a life-changing journey. I highly recommend this book.
Take for example, the small child talking with an invisible friend. He is probably seeing a spirit guide. If we recognize the a ability, grow it for a stay within you forever to pay attention to intuitions and coincidences. The author was sixty-three when under Rick’s patient tutelage, in less than eighteen months, experienced a rapid-fire transformation from normal person to certified hypnotist, white light healer, and channel. She has embraced every moment of this growth. Now her mantra is, “All you have to do is be open to everything.”
In Zipacna’s Legacy, Rick and Jade strive to share the spiritual world. Hopes that more people will “find their way home” as they have. Jade's grandfather’s name… is Zipacna. It means “builder of mountains.” The reader accompanies the protagonists in their search for truth. Things are pre-destined.
Jade felt her entire body vibrating. Rather than the expected panic, and urge to dial 9-1-1—or the Mexican version of it—an intoxicating sensation of serenity wove throughout her being. Her grandfather she’d neither seen nor spoken to in more than twenty years, left the hotel to her for a reason—an as-yet enigmatic. Although it was somewhat off the beaten path, Chi’país was located on the road between Tulum and El Paraiso; hundreds of tourists visited annually.
But…how many moved there? Was that the operative question? But no—Grandfather specifically said follow in my footsteps. What an odd way to ask someone to take over a hotel. The message:
“A quetzal, in conjunction with the snake god Quetzalcoatl—the most popular god, by the way—is seen as a symbol for goodness and light. I think that describes you to a T. You will be a godsend to us.”
Every human is special.” How much crazier were things going to get around here? Why did everyone in town seem to know things about her? How was she supposed to be a godsend? And why did Abraham call her—what was that name—Waempo? not seen him since she was five. Besides, she wasn’t familiar with the Mexican culture.
The author uses some Spanish dialogue which the story translates as it goes along. It gives the story a foreign feel, maybe an amount of unknowns to deal with in this mysterious set up. Was Jade seen some sort of deity, maybe religious? How many more of them might be around there? What was their purpose? Something religious maybe. But why? Why would a hotel need such things? In the states, you had to be careful not to alienate certain religious groups; everything needed to be nondenominational.
Perhaps she could find that out, too—just for information. have a further, deeper meaning? Never a failure. Just a momentary lack of forward motion. Within this recent vision—she still hesitated to call it that—one thing became all too clear. She found herself where:
Moonlight shone down, imbuing a creature with a surreal golden glow. Chirping tree frogs, the whoop of an occasional owl, and the tick-tack of grasshoppers provided a backdrop for what was otherwise total serenity. Easy to see why her grandfather loved this place. “When it’s the right time, no explanation will be needed.
How was that depth of passion possible? There is more. A lot more. Why, every time Jade touches Miguel, she has a vision? Jade blinked away some fog in her eyes. Since being there, everything seems to have taken a full circle’s worth of change and it’s left her baffled and on edge.
Wasn’t that just the way Jade reacted the first time she’d touched Miguel?” And come to think of it, Miguel had reacted the same way—and then run off. Things were growing a bit less muddy. Whatever ‘talent’ she had for producing in these images, Miguel a boy of ten, shared it. The common denominator had to be her grandfather.
Maybe he had been growing some sort of hallucinogenic in the backyard. The simple definition is that a shaman is connected to Mother Earth. They are healers of the earth and the human body. As such, they are intermediaries between our world and the spirit world. It sounded spooky and intriguing at the same time.
For Jade, Shamanism had a negative connotation. For years she’d thought her father and grandfather had a falling out. Could it have something to do with this? Was her father so against shamanism that he abandoned his dad? If so, had family responsibility been the reason he’d come back? It made sense. What didn’t make sense were the lies that let her believe he hadn’t seen Zipacna in years.
In ancient times, a shaman was a combination medical doctor, psychologist, and spiritual healer to his community. There were no doctors or hospitals, so people relied on the shamans for all their healing. Donna told a shaman is an intermediary between the real world and the spiritual world—Who is Donna?” Grandfather’s good friend. Ladonna Wolf.
Shamanism isn’t something you can learn. Most people believe you are either born with it or not. But it’s lately come to light that the talent, the ability—for lack of a better word—can be cultivated. Jade was starving for information. An inner god-power... The wording might offend some people, but she understood; it was a strength achieved only within the body.
That night Jade fell asleep with Miguel’s book in her hands and two words circling in her head—destiny and ability. More words followed: What? Why? an inestimable truth. Her truth.
She sees him grow like a vegetable seed in her garden living out his destiny. Though that will not happen until his thirtieth birthday is near, and she will be gone from this earth, there is no doubt it will transpire. Jade cannot wait to make my healing powers work. Miguel, at ten, was the youngest shaman in training at their school. Zipacna had known of the child’s abilities since he was very small, and had become the boy’s mentor. Miguel had mastered most all aspects of his spiritual training, but, in his mind, he fell short in his healing abilities. Jade had told him many times that some things took longer to develop
To developing inner power and vision, spiritual growth, dream interpretation, self-healing, instantaneous healing, meditative yoga, prana reiki, soul retrieval, and basic shamanism, a reader can go on this adventure to see how shamans operate. They do some chanting—for specific things like cleansings, but otherwise Zipacna and Neo were on what he always referred to as ‘the same page.’”
Their most popular classes are consciousness raising, deep meditation, astral projection, and how to talk to your spirit guides. Is the shaman life…for you, you need to be with the earth.
You won’t want to miss book two in Jade’s a-ma-zing trilogy
Scarlett Jensen 10 November 2020.
Jade French, a highly successful marketing specialist soon to be promoted to the top position in her California-based company, has received notice that she has inherited a ‘hotel’ in a small town in Mexico. Because she somehow feels that this is where her future lies, she resigns, permanently breaks off with her boyfriend and leaves with close friend Mari Anderson (a totally high maintenance city girl) to move to take possession of the property. They arrive and find the well-designed structure fronted by a large porch heavily overgrown with tangled vines, and other obvious signs of neglect as it has been empty since grandfather’s death. From this point on, the reader embarks upon an intriguing journey where Jade discovers that her birth name was not Jade French, but Jade Sacniete Waempo IX, that her grandfather had been a practitioner and teacher of a form of Shamanism, that her inheritance resulted from her grandfather’s recognition that she was a person with already developed, but unrecognized, understanding of many Shaman powers and that she had arrived to fulfil a predestined position as a prominent leader. The story is a fascinating unfolding of the manner in which Jade gradually learns of her legacy, the trials encountered as her new life gradually opens, her acquisition of new friends as well as inexplicable enemies and ultimate understanding of formerly unanswerable questions relevant to her mother and father.
Discussion/Summary: The author opens with an Author’s note telling the reader that “the spiritual situations that happen to Jade in the story are things that can happen to anyone, Telepathy and self-healing are not fantasies. They are available inside each of us.” She also explains that shamanism has existed for thousands of years and that ancient times the local Shaman was the physician, psychologist and Spiritual Healer to his community. Purportedly shamans are “connected to earth. They are healers of the earth and the human body; intermediaries between our world and the spirit world.” Further, this former 23-year editor and mystery writer, now has been “awakened” and with her “also reformed husband” Rick Palmacci, present “talks on positivity and spirituality” as well as providing “a bi-monthly blog and short stories featuring characters from the Jade series.” She also has provided a well-selected Bibliography of some publications pertinent to the basic subject of the mind/body/spirit and shamanism, Native American Religions of Central and South America and similar thought patterns. In Summary, a truly intriguing story providing captivating features of a subject rarely encountered when perusing reading choices.
