Orixa of the Stars tells the story of a young princess who is forced to flee from the stars due to a huge vapour storm caused by the Wasenas. These are very small creatures with wings, and they remain so if one does not look at them, but as soon as one gives them any attention they grow and develop hairy bodies with short legs and leech off one’s shoulders and surfaces of asteroids. Hence, Orixa, holding tight to her magical mirror along with her best friend princess Priska, find themselves on the remote island of Shofall on earth. Here, Orixa and Priska are received by Dharkjen, the oldest witch on the island, who has only one hand carrying a stick and who also has a necklace of eyes around her head to see everyone and everything from everywhere! Thence, Orixa travels through five more islands on her quest to build a ship and return to the stars. However, on each island she encounters either the witch Dharkjen or the Wasenas, and sometimes both who subject her to many adversities. Nevertheless, Orixa achieves higher levels of awareness on each of the islands. These are further reflected in songs throughout the story. Will Orixa reach her destination, or will she keep running away from Dharkjen?

    This is a beautiful adventure that will help us to strengthen our ability to face our inner fears and resistance when experiencing our challenges in life. Orixa is determined to accomplish her dreams and she learns so much about herself along the way. Her strength as well as her ability to reflect on her journey along the way can serve as a compass for us all to never lose hope and to forgive and forget along the way.
    I absolutely loved the poems that reflect on Orixa's discovery of the profound TRUTH. This book is for everybody, big and small, who is prepared to pause and reflect with Orixa and learn something about themselves along the way.
