In the “The Long Journey Home” (published by Balboa Press), author Sheila Gautreaux offers a fresh look at one of the most powerful parables in the Bible—the Prodigal Son—as man’s personal journey of evolution in consciousness. This book revolves around its central theme that forgiveness holds the key to reawakening love, peace and connection for all humanity.

“The Long Journey Home” takes a fresh look at one of the most widely-recognized and most frequently interpreted of the many parables taught by Jesus during his ministry. Using the process of metaphysical interpretation, along with the concepts of conscious evolution and quantum science, the Prodigal Son emerges from a great story about coming home and forgiveness to an exploration into how life experiences are valuable teaching points and may provide powerful catalysts for quantum shifts in consciousness.

The book helps readers make sense of the challenges, struggles and detours that define people’s paths as they attempt to live and grow in a world that appears to keep them from finding the safe haven they seek from birth – that inner sense of “home.” What it seeks to highlight is that, “our painful experiences do not have to destroy us; that they are not happening "to" us but are happening "for" us to awaken us to the tremendous power within us to heal our lives.”

An excerpt from the book:
“The key to successfully living in this world of polar opposites is remembering that God exists within the light and the dark; that there is only God, only Truth, and all else is but a hoax perpetrated by our ego for its own glorification. Awareness is focused attention to the details of life—the messages, spiritual meaning and lessons within everything around us and everything that happens to us. By recognizing that everything happens for a reason—happens not to us but for us—we use life as a tool for conscious evolution and the route to home.”
