The Spirit of Life

Niaby Codd

To read this book is to take the first step towards a life of consciousness. To read this book is to take the first step towards a life filled with love and abundance. To read this book is to take the first step towards knowing who you truly are.
For millennia, man has searched for purpose and meaning in his life but that journey has often led him to search in all the wrong places. It has been said many times that to connect with self is to connect with God and to connect with God is to connect with love, but our definition and understanding of what God is has become so misunderstood that many of us can’t even say the word, let alone connect with it.
By reading this book, you will start to realign yourself with the true definition of God, in all of its glory and all of its wisdom. By reading this book, you will start to realign yourself with the true meaning of self, in all of its beauty and all of its uniqueness. By reading this book you will start to realign yourself with the true meaning of love, in all of its expansiveness and all of its entirety. By reading this book you will take the first step towards the revolution of consciousness, the revolution of our hearts and minds, the revolution that will help us to find peace in ourselves and peace on our planet. The revolution that has been forever prophesied but never seen. The revolution that IS coming to our planet…

An Interview with Niaby Codd

Where did you write this book?
I wrote this book all over. I wrote on aeroplanes and at airports. I wrote whilst travelling around the Mid West of the U.S before going to Burning Man, whilst chilling by myself on the Perenthian islands in Malaysia and on trains whilst coming back from various trips. But whether it be as simple as writing in the living room or my bedroom or as exotic as sitting in a beach hut in Malaysia, I remember exactly where I was for every insert that I wrote – which is saying a lot with my memory!
There is, however, one very special memory that I have whilst writing this book. I was due to trek to Everest base camp on the 31st October 2015 but due to my suitcase arriving a day late, my trek had to be postponed by one day which meant that I started the trek on my dad’s first birthday since passing from cancer.
After a day of trekking I sat in a cabin on a breathtaking mountain and started to write another insert for my book. As I sat there writing I soon started to realise that the words that were coming were, in fact, concluding my book and so, I wrote the final pages of my book on my late dad’s birthday having taken my first steps into a journey of the unknown.
Much like that mountain, my journey into being ready to get this book published has had its ups and downs, highs and lows and bends and forks in the road. I have cried, I have laughed and at times I have simply wanted to give up.
Much work was needed to be done on self before I could consider myself to be ready to handle all that will come with the launching of this book. ‘The spirit of life’ holds great power and secrets within and with great power comes great responsibility. It was therefore necessary for me to journey very deeply into self, expelling self doubt, limiting beliefs, negativity and fear for how can I ask others to do so, if I haven’t at least started that journey myself…?
Now it seems that I am ready to start that journey, although self doubt still knocks at my door. But at least now I am ready to hold the hands of all those that are ready to start their journey too, for what is the point in holding such wisdom, if you are too afraid of what others might say to share it with them?
And so, my journey into the public eye begins, and with each brave step forward that I take, I hope that the writing of this book will also help to encourage others into taking their own brave steps into becoming exactly who they were born to be.
What gave you the inspiration to write this book?
I was inspired by spirit to write this book. As a developing medium, I was required to do an impromptu trance mediumship class during one of my courses and during this session, much to my surprise, I connected with an incredibly enlightened wizard!
Through connecting with him on two occasions throughout two different classes, I made the decision to sit with him at home and write as I recognised the language being used by him as being very similar to that which comes through in my writing.
I knew that spirt was helping me with my writing but I had no idea that it was this one particular spirit guide. By reading this book, you will bear witness to those conversations from start to finish – no editing, no changing, just as it came!
The spirit of life is a book of inspiration and meaning so it is of no great surprise that I first had to be inspired by spirit myself to be able to bring such words of wisdom into the public eye.
It is my hope that the words that come through in this book will help to inspire many people to make the changes that our world so desperately needs to see. By helping each individual to recognise that they all come to this Earth with a gift – a gift that will help to heal the rift, is to empower each individual to take action for themselves. Not by staging marches, protests and sit ins, but rather by using their passions as a guide to help them walk their own path, and in so doing, finding their way to make their own impact to affect that positive and loving change that we all so need to see.
How long did it take you to write this book?
It only took me six months to write this book, sitting with spirit for roughly one hour a day as the words flowed through me. However, I often sat for hours afterwards, reading and rereading the powerful words that had become manifest through me, blown away daily by the infinite wisdom that was being presented through this connection with spirit.
I am still blown away now, 3.5 years after writing it, as each and every time that I read it, more words of wisdom jump out of the page at me.
What do you do when you’re not writing?
I love life! I do anything that makes my soul sing. I travel, I dance, I’m learning to sing. I’m facing my fears and learning to dance with my demons. I’m opening up to new things and new journeys and experiences. I’m learning to listen to the call of my soul. I’m learning to trust myself. I’m learning that you can party sober and still have fun. I’m learning how to balance my fun side with my spirituality. I’m learning that it’s ok to be exactly who I am. I’m learning to live with a full and open heart. I’m learning to love and to forgive. I’m learning to be me…
What is your favourite book?
I would have to say the Conversations with God books. They are of a very similar ilk to my book and I am always blown away by the similarities that come through in both Neale Donald Walsch’s books and in my own. But then I have to remind myself that, in fact, it should not be at all surprising seeing as all of the information is coming from a higher source. Truth is truth – you can argue with it all you want but it doesn’t stop it from being truth.
Through this series of books, Neale Donald Walsch has been very inspirational to me in terms of dealing with any criticism that may come as a result of putting this book into the public eye. His books, due to the nature of the source, have come under some harsh criticism from some, as may mine, but when I see what he has accomplished through the reach and scope of his books and recognise the many lives that have been positively impacted due to him facing his fears and putting his work out there, I realise that I too must face my fears and allow for the powerful words of spirit to be heard.
What is your favourite thing about being an author.
Well, as a first time author, I guess I’m about to find out but I would say knowing that people have the chance to be inspired by your work. That your words have the ability to provoke deep change in the lives of those who are drawn to read it. That your words may, indeed, provoke deep debate but that such deep debate is needed if we are to start to see the change that our world so desperately needs to see.
