I’m excited for you to read the interview with the marvelous Ruth Soltman! What I love about Ruth, besides being an author, is her desire to help people with their spirituality and to grow… May her spiritual journey inspire your own!
Interview with the Marvelous Ruth Soltman
Have you always been into healing and spirituality? If not, how did it come about?
Yes, as an adult I have, although I didn’t recognize and acknowledge it within myself for quite a while. I was raised Catholic and that had a huge impact on my younger years. As I got older, things began to not make sense anymore. I began to question everything.
Sometime in the 1990s, I read Neale Donald Walsch’s book, Conversations with God Book 1, and it blew me away. Every word he wrote resonated deeply within me. My world felt like it was crumbling around me. I realized that everything I grew up knowing no longer resonated with me. This is when my Spiritual Awakening began. It has been a magnificent journey to remembering who I am.
I love that and it’s amazing how a book can change the direction of your life. You use words to help people heal through your books. Can you take us through your writing process?
In the beginning, my process was a bit different than it is now. I would get messages…sometimes words, ideas, phrases…and I would write them down. Then when I was ready to write my first book, I had pages and pages of notes to go through, trying to put things in some sort of order. It was quite a challenge. I learned from that process.
For all of my future books, I designed my format and chose my chapter titles first. Then as I sat down to write, the information began to flow through me immediately. Through the process, I have learned to trust the information Spirit sends me. I have learned to tap into it much more efficiently.
Do you plan to continue writing books? If yes, what will your next book be about?
Yes. I plan on writing for as long as I am guided. My fifth book, Practical Spirituality Living a Spiritual Life in a Human Body will be released soon. It will help guide others through this journey we call life. I have already been inspired for my next book after that and for a series of children’s books.
Wow! Children’s books! That sounds like fun. What other types of healing work do you do?
I am an Angelic Reiki Practitioner, Reiki Master Teacher, and I do Spiritual Intuitive/Psychic Card Readings. I also host a LIVE weekly show, The Transformational Soul on Goldylocks Productions.
