Mary Takes a Stand

On International Women's Day, it seems appropriate to honor a woman who stood up to a man few others would dare to challenge. Henry VIII intimidated most grown men into following his will, but he would have a difficult time taming his teenage daughter.

Four Princes by John Julius Norwich
Four Princes: Henry VIII, Francis I, Charles V, Suleiman the Magnificent and the Obsessions that Forged Modern Europe - John Julius Norwich

This overview of four powerful leaders of the 16th century reads like a blog. In some ways that is nice. It is easy to read and doesn't get into too many details. On the other hand, it also includes opinions and outright errors. Despite the fact that this is supposed to be about four men, it felt like it focused on Henry VIII in much greater length.

Ama Alchemy of Love Book Launch
A-Ma Alchemy of Love - Nataša Pantović Nuit

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LONDON - Feb 23, 2017 - Ama Alchemy of Love Spiritual Novel by Nataša Pantović Nuit Finally Launched

 

During the last 5 years a team of spiritual researchers was working hard to complete and publish a series of 9 (nine) spiritual and self-development non-fiction books called: Alchemy of Love Mindfulness Training.

 

– The audience that is attracted to my courses and books are the many that are interested in self-development, spirituality, inner-development, esoteric or occult teachings, alchemy, Tantra, inspirational writings, and New Consciousness. I found a whole new family constantly exploring these subject.- Said Nuit. Now, after 10 years of writing A-Ma, I feel that I am ready to release her into the world of Consciousness as a historical spiritual fiction story that was from the very beginning the natural drive of the Alchemy of Love series, of the whole alchemy and mindfulness endeavor. So, to all who patently waited for this moment: Welcome to our latest publishing adventure, to my spiritual novel: Ama Alchemy of Love! ISBN: 978-9995754198

 

A-Ma is a spiritual novel set in the 16th century Macao. The main protagonist Ama is an African Queen, an incarnated Goddess, a Guru that within the magic settings of her coffee house gathers philosophers, artists, and various wisdom seekers. Travelling through space and time, we find ourselves in the time of strong religious clashes and dogmas, at the very beginning of the scientific revolution, where our protagonists join the fight of the enlightened minds of the time.

 

Within China we enter the very wisdom of the alchemy of soul and humanity, where a group of enlightened people create an energy matrix that will change the lives of generations to come. Through Ruben, a Portuguese Jesuit Priest, through Ama, her family, friends, followers and enemies, we attempt to understand the challenges of their time, we join their attempts to learn from both the Eastern and Western philosophies, and we witness their personal inner transformation.

 

All the events and manuscripts mentioned within the book: the Dutch attack to Macao 24th of June 1622, the Reform of the Chinese Calendar during 1630s, Father Schalls Appointment to the Chinese Board of Mathematicians (during 1650s), Witches Hunt, and Witches Manual, etc, are carefully researched historical facts. The book uses history to create the connection between actions of the individuals that live surrounded by magic.

 

Nataša Pantovic Nuit is Author, Yogi, and Spiritual Researcher that lives and works in Malta. Nuit has published 9 Alchemy of Love Mindfulness Training Books. The Alchemy of Love Mindfulness Training is about the alchemy of love, the alchemy of soul, and our everlasting quest to find the gold within, discovering the stone that transforms metals into gold.

Reginald Pole's Reaction to his Mother's Execution

Why examine this little snippet of history? We know that Margaret Pole was horridly executed on Henry VIII's orders, and we know that Reginald Pole was safely away from England at the time. I think it is important to look at how Reginald took this news because I have read some opinions that Reginald was bitter toward his mother for his dedication to the church. Based on studying both of these historical figures, I have not found evidence of that. Yet even Hilary Mantel states it as fact.
