This book will inspire you to reach out to your inner child and use your power to ask the spiritual world for help and guidance.

“This book represents light, self-love, and hope for those adults dealing with the lingering effects of childhood abuse. Living in the present, we have the power to create a new life and to think new thoughts. By healing, I mean going inward and focusing on the wounds that are still open—wounds that we hide and wounds that prevent us from having true intimacy with ourselves and others. We can go from wounded to wonderful, but it takes courage and strength to go inside and acknowledge what happened to us,” Karen R. Schultz, LCSW states.

In “Little Karen and the Egyptian Priestess: How My Higher Self Healed My Childhood” (published by Balboa Press), she tells the story about little Karen, who grew up dealing with ongoing abuse and depression as a young child. Her mind goes to another place and another environment when she is being hurt. She goes to ancient Egypt where a mystical priestess shows her love and teaches her about the sacredness of life in Egypt. The priestess teaches her to become a priestess in training and a woman with a purpose. Readers are invited to follow little Karen as she connects to the priestess and the power of her soul.

This book is divided into different parts. In the autobiographical chapters, Schultz uses her life experiences to show what a child feels in a world with little support and no clear boundaries or purpose. The second part is the life lessons that helped her to break out of a limited life. There, she also outlines ways the reader can access their own power, including tips she uses with clients who are working to let go of the past in therapy. The third part of each chapter is a priestess story, except for the first chapter. There are stories about the way she uses her wisdom to help little Karen thrive in Egypt.

“This book will inspire you to reach out to your inner child and use your power to ask the spiritual world for help and guidance. I do believe in miracles and positivity when we operate from our higher selves. Use this book as a way to shed light on all of our stories; coming out of that darkness can help you heal and examine what happened. Please come with me to talk about the dark and bring it to light. I include a list of trauma-related books that might be helpful to all of you,” Schultz says. For more details about the book, please visit
