About Alchemy's Air:


Skylar Southmartin is not the naïve girl she was a short year ago. She’s made some mistakes and learned a few secrets to life, all the while clinging to the faith her mother instilled in her as a child . . . in herself. And now that she has discovered her life’s purpose within the pages of the ancient Book of Sophia, she knows what she must do: restore a vital memory to the Akashic Library, located deep within the Underworld of Earth. This library is sought after by many who are aware of its existence, for they know the future of human potential rests at its core.

Meanwhile, Devlin Grayer has been elected as the 46th President of the United States and his wife, Milicent, is miserable in her new role as First Lady—especially because the Great Mothers have asked Milicent to use her new status to help their cause, and she has no interest in tackling that task.

With the help of friends in the unlikeliest of places, Skylar’s journey reveals the significance of the darkness within all of us, and its potential to save or destroy the most precious part of us all: our soul.




“Skylar, at the time of your conception, a great surge of energy from the sun was making its way toward earth. For the nine months of your gestation, exceptional things were happening to the planet with this influx of energy. Preparations were being made for the next evolutionary step for mankind. Now, twenty-two years later, we have reached the peak of that energy influx. This is why so many acts of insanity are occurring. As the vibration of earth rises, those that cannot handle it, literally go insane. Those in power in your world know this. They have created their underground cities, yes, but all the while looking . . . for this.” She gestured to the great citrine wall. “This holds the answer to every puzzle. The memory of earth, the heart of Sophia, the heart of every human. They are all connected.”

The pictures on the wall showed a young girl wearing a crown of gems holding the Book of Sophia. A chill ran up the back of Skylar’s head; she knew she was that young girl.

“But Skylar, it goes much deeper than that. The Akasha holds our myths, our archetypes, and our patterns of behavior. It contains the inspiration for our dreams. This is where imagination lives. And in the collective imagination sits all possibility for human potential.”

“Sophia,” Skylar choked the tears back. She took her eyes off of the pictures to look at the great wall of yellow rock. Craggy branches of gold running through it framed a ten-foot tablet. Endless words in Sanskrit clicked by, recording the real time memories as life continued above. Skylar sat in awe, this was the Book of Sophia magnified beyond understanding.

“Your world is feeling the pressures of the end of the age of patriarchy. Dark forces are clamoring to find this wall. And if they do . . .” Diana’s eyes darkened to black, her face paled, whiter than any ghost. “They will have complete control over the collective imagination, all dreams, all potential for humankind.”

“That can’t be possible,” Skylar whispered.

“Oh, it is. And it is dangerously close to happening. Sophia is trying to return to earth but only can if this great wall is whole. Humanity is called to remember its divinity.”

“That’s why I’m here. I’m supposed to restore a memory,” Skylar said.

“Which one?” Diana gestured to the wall. Pockets of holes darkened on cue to reveal the extent of its splintering.

Seeing so many holes, Skylar’s confidence faltered. “I have to remind women who they really are.”

Diana scoffed. “One person can’t do that. Everyone’s on their own for personal enlightenment. But take your best shot.”

Skylar paused. She had more faith than Diana. She also knew that when we recover our strength, we can help others in finding their own. Yet here in this strange land, she didn’t know what she was supposed to do. She got up and walked to the citrine wall placing her hand in one of the holes. At first, she felt nothing but closed her eyes and waited. Then she heard it.

An Underworld repressed . . .denial of what is within the earth, what is within the female, created this world. Time for change is at hand. Lead others out of the hell of fear. Expose the shadow, let the shadow be witnessed.
