Things Are Going Great In My Absence:
How To Let Go And Let The Divine Do The Heavy Lifting

"I am raving about your Playbook! What a joy it is to read, or just have on my lap. I don't know how you do it, but holding this book in my hands sends waves of energy through my body and I enjoy just having it with me." Anita Kriz

"The Divine Openings Playbook is a masterful weaving of Things are Going Great in my Absence and Divine Openings fundamentals in extremely practical and clear ways. From the first page, I was transported and deeply and easily grounded in new comprehension of Lola’s teachings and again, lifted by grace as I had been in reading the first book. Melinda takes Lola’s already-clear masterpiece and further deepens and enhances it. For whatever reason, Melinda’s words reach my conscious mind in easy ways, opening understanding of Lola’s work at a deeper sweet divine level.  Truly it is a blessing to experience and I feel it’s a 'must read' for everyone." Donna McGuigan
