What is Visionary Fiction?
Visionary is a tone as well as a genre. The ‘visionary’ element can technically be present in any genre and set in any time.
Characteristic Features of Visionary Fiction:
- Growth of consciousness is the central theme of the story and drives the protagonist, and/or other important characters.
- Oftentimes uses reincarnation, dreams, visions, paranormal, psychic abilities, and other metaphysical plot devices
- Is universal in its worldview and scope
So in short, the emphasis is on our limitless human potential, where transformation and evolution are entirely possible.
“Visionary Fiction speaks the language of the soul. It offers a vision of humanity as we dream it could be.
When I was 28, a mother of two, I was shown what soul purpose I had chosen in this lifetime. (It was to fully awaken to the ‘knowing’ of how to manifest any reality I wanted) The story of Liesbeth, in chapter 7 of “My love we are going home”, was the beginning of my writing career (unknown to me at the time). This first title in 2003 became The Awakening Clan – This novel will soon be updated under another timeline of 2019 – 2030 titled: The Reality Shifters
The age of computers had not yet arrived. The Internet was an unknown concept and my own knowledge was very minimal on the topics on which I now write. All I knew for a fact was that this one profound experience awakened within me a passion to become a cosmic traveler, and an astral explorer, of a world that held such kaleidoscopic diversities, all of which I needed to study further.
While studying all the metaphysical sciences and esoteric psychology, I gave art therapy and drawing skill classes in Port Elizabeth,(South Africa) thereby laying the groundwork for my mind drawing workbook, to be published years later.
During the course of the last fifteen years, it has been easier to perceive this vision that I had during the seventies for what it was, especially when the word Matrix (no relation to the movie) became a buzz word.
My journey as a writer began after I was introduced to a spell checker in a word processing program in the early nineties. I could step aside and let the characters of the Jaarsma Clan take over, while I just typed their story.
I entered the first chapter of my novel into the Writer’s Club of South Africa competition under the name of Nadine May, and it was placed first in the Michael Brunner trophy section (first chapter of a novel) in 1999. This gave me the confidence to keep exploring our awakening through storytelling.
To reach others through storytelling was the best decision I ever made. It helped me to follow my dream despite all the obstacles I had to confront in my own life.
I never stopped being creative in other ways besides story telling.
It was through my drawing skill classes and my visualization technique that I noticed the shift in my student’s perceptions from the way that they looked at their drawings. When proof is shown, beliefs either disappear or become a ‘knowing’. As a result, My Art-analogue mind-drawing workshops were born that seem to awaken the Language of our Soul.
Have a Look at the video clip on the mind drawing workshop on The language of Light The Shoot the Breeze Productions took for Free Spirit TV on channel 2 and 3 in South Africa.
My Reality Shift series have the following purpose..
It’s through the character Tieneke that the mind drawing workbook was published as The Language of Light, and it’s through all the characters of the Jaarsma Clan that the visionary fiction novels were born.
Book 1 In my first novel The Awakening Clan ( soon will be updated between 2019- 2030 and re-titled: The Reality Shifters) Ingrid writes in her diary how her reality changes due to her own desire to awaken her soul purpose. Annelies’ ascension workshop teaches types of decoding exercises in order to activate the genetic cellular memory of her students.
Book 2 & 3 : The Astral Explorer and The Cosmic Traveller, ( soon will be combined and updated between 2019- 2030 and re-titled: Orphanage of Soulmates ) Richard writes in his diary about his version of how Annelies’ reality shifting card game titled: the Eye of the observer show that our reality is a holographic third dimensional game.
Book 4: Annelies’ diary titled: Vanishing Worlds, shares about the rules of creation. Her story gives readers an example of how our awakening can be experienced, and how we can survive the turbulent times we all live in. (Annelies is also the author of the workbook The Body Codes of Light) not yet published.
The story behind Vanishing Worlds and The Body Codes of light explains through story telling why the 22 spacings within the human energy field needed to be awakened through The Language of Light frequencies. Now it becomes clear why the diary /journals (novels) had to be written the way they are. In order to awaken to the truth by activating their Body Codes of Light (DNA), they learned to restore their cellular memory back to the right Soul quality frequencies.
Book 5: Liesbeth (the dairy translator) shares in her own journal Parallel Worlds how their light bodies can move through portals, gateways and stargates and return towards Parallel Worlds from the year 2020 on-wards. Her story is may not be able to take “it” with you, but whatsoever you may do, be, or have in time and space, is already waiting for you here, times 10,000. Don’t hold back.
Book 6: The last novel titled The Prophet Game is like a story telling handbook about how to become Reality Shifters.
