The concept of spiritual awakening encompasses self-discovery and enlightenment. This notion suggests that humans have an innate capacity to surpass the physical world's limitations and reconnect with their true essence as divine beings. The journey toward spiritual awakening involves being more aware of the interconnectedness between the mind, body, and spirit to obtain a more profound understanding of the self and the universe.
Many cultures believe this enlightenment entails returning to a higher consciousness and reclaiming one's identity as gods, goddesses, angels, and other metaphysical entities. Luna Pantera, a witch, healer, and seer, translates this notion of spiritual awakening in her upcoming book, Danika Has Awaken. This book revolves around Danika Gutiérrez, a character shaped by her lineage. Danika navigates her life as she discovers her role as a significant member of a coven of Fallen Angels.
Luna reveals the concept of the Great Reckoning in this work of speculative fiction, exploring a prophecy promised millennia ago that will either restore balance to the world or drive it into eternal destruction. The novel illustrates individuals awakening to their divine roots. Luna's characters embark on a quest to awaken the dormant divinity within each person as they feel the paralyzing effect of a world detached from the spiritual realm.
"The book explores the power within ourselves. We don't need intermediaries to connect with the Divine. The characters portray this perfectly as they try to bring humanity back to harmony and spiritual alignment," the author supplied. Danika Has Awaken is the first installment of a trilogy, which revolves around universal themes of self-discovery, divine connection, and the potential for humanity's collective spiritual awakening. It portrays a journey of transcending the boundaries of the tangible to explore the extraordinary essence hidden deep within us.
Luna's background in spiritual practices serves as the foundation for exploring metaphysical themes in her writing. As a practitioner of witchcraft, the Feri Tradition, and the Ifa belief system, the author draws inspiration from her elevated ancestors, the Orishas and the Archangel Michael. Since Luna began her spiritual journey, she has been committed to healing and using her shamanic gifts to help others rediscover their power, recognize their purpose, and regain their inner wisdom.
When asked about the inspiration behind Danika Has Awaken, Luna fondly recalled, "The pandemic urged me to do introspection and look at the world from different lenses. The anger and chaos were palpable with everything that has been going on in our society. The insights I gained from my self-reflection enabled me to write Danika's journey from a perspective that allowed me to look at the characters with compassion. Following that is the process of healing, enabling readers to see if Danika is a heroine or antagonist in the eyes of the other characters. This aspect brings authenticity."
Now, Luna immerses herself in spiritual practices such as past life regression, soul retrievals, and ancestor lineage repair. She shared a past life regression work that highlights her commitment to helping others break their karmic cycles: "I had a friend trapped in a toxic relationship. Once I explored her past life, I found patterns of abuse and tragedy that mirror the challenges my friend faces in her current life. My role was to provide her valuable insights into how she could break free from this destructive cycle."
Luna's knowledge and experiences in exploring spirituality, healing, and numerous cultural practices helped her create a narrative that intertwines the physical and the metaphysical. Her involvement with Anaphora Literary Arts, a non-profit organization advocating for writers and artists of color, reflects her dedication to making diverse voices like hers heard within the literary community.
Luna Pantera's Danika Has Awaken is an immersive exploration of spiritual awakening and collective transformation. With this book, the author invites readers to reconnect with their divine roots to understand the complexities of the human experience.
