The God of Green Valley, by María José Celemín. A beautiful story of the fictional HSP character Victoria … who lost her connection with her beloved God of Green Valley…the God of Nature; of the fruit trees; of the harvest; the God of values; of honesty; humility; of kindness, of innocent joy. Yet, after finding out about the HSP trait, she found her way back to her God of Green Valley, her voice, her freedom and her dignity.
“Never underestimate the power of culture to devalue, discourage or marginalize your authentic self. Never underestimate the power of your own power to reclaim your authentic self.” ~ Jacquelyn Strickland
Congratulations Maria … I am so very proud and happy for you !
