The Warrior’s Way to Heaven on Earth takes the reader on an evolutionary journey backward and forward in time. The author discusses personal shadow aspects arising from childhood experiences, cultural conditioning, the traumas of life and media programming. Emotions and injuries that are hidden within and unresolved can interfere with relationships and personal growth throughout life and block the way to unified self and recognition of the divine within. Techniques in identifying and countering these hidden aspects are offered. The author also travels back to the inheritance of collective shadow aspects from having been born into a particular culture, racial grouping or human family.
As the impediments to growth and inner development are recognized, the warrior’s journey continues onward to discuss the world as it is: intensifying conflicts and environmental destruction, the collapse of economies, and the system of control becoming ever more restrictive. Within this darkness, the author reminds us of the transformative energy that we are together creating, leading us to envision and work toward creating a new heaven on earth. Readers are reminded of prophesies and many different signs pointing toward this being the time period in which a great shift occurs.
The Warrior’s Way offers practical advice, real knowledge, inspiration and information as it points toward disengaging from a devolving, collapsing world, and engaging in a return to self: down-to-earth gentleness and grace aligned with the divine feminine energy. The light emerges from darkness with an ever increasing awareness of how we are truly one… no more us and them, just us, unified within, and with all that is.

Darn….I dragged out finishing your marvelous book as long as I could!!
Each word, each sentence was overflowing with such simple and honest Truth that I had to put your book down dozens of times in order to let it wash over me. How wonderful to read, on so many subjects, exactly how I feel while, at the same time, being challenged to re-evaluate my own journey and work on the shadows that I recognize are still affecting my daily life.
And getting snippets of your own personal journey made the Truth even stronger. Bravo, Ida!!

This piece is a phenomenal read, and Ida Lawrence is one of the great teachers among us who found her authentic voice and generously gives of her wisdom. The text encapsulates the journey from ignorance to self-awareness, from listlessness to taking responsibility for oneself, and from dimensions of shame or fear to realms of courage and love. The Warrior’s Way carries the reader from a point of no reference to a place of confidence, strength, and belief in the inherent unity of the laws at work in nature.

I wanted to share how your writing is touching the hearts of others. On Friday my friend, Lori, in Tucson, received her copy of your book and after reading it she wrote back:
“I took her book to Earnie’s today and he and Sharon and Sarah showed up this evening (all with tears in their eyes). They all read Ida’s book and LOVED HER. Earnie has been teaching these things for years, but with masculine energy (lots of resentment/less love), and he sees that this knowledge is best taught through the feminine. I was really proud of him.”
Earnie is a Cherokee chief holding the Red Fire near Darrio Canyon north of Tucson.
“….this Monday all the stars are in alignment that happened at the birth of Buddha and Jesus, according to some source?? Earnie is holding a special Ceremony on Monday night and the regulars will be there as well as Lucia’s group. Earnie wants me to read from Ida’s book (he will choose the passages, I’m guessing).
I’m still amazed at how much she covered in so few pages. And I love how balanced she is….moving from “Factual Left Brain” over to the “Loving/Understanding Right Brain”…validating her information with Science and Math instead of Programming and Ego.
And I’m so glad that Ida rose up out of Stuie’s Ashes. I know that he is proud of her also.”
Know that you are reaching the hearts of a great many people, Ida, especially the Souls that are in such need of comfort at this time.

I received the books and devoured the Spiritual Warrior right away. Your writing style, ‘cut to the chase’ succinctness (if that’s a word), and content are right up my alley. I do not often re-read books but this one is a must.
I found myself wishing that I had had it three years ago when my life did a 180. Over the course of several hours, I came to know in my heart that most everything I had been told or taught was an illusion. I have been on a journey ever since for Truth whatever that may be. Interestingly enough in my work people are beginning to ask in-depth questions about our world. I refer to my response as ‘The Talk’ and the relief and validation from people about their perceptions and wonderings (heretical as they seem) is having an impact on their sense of futility and depression. Yet, I struggle for what to say, how much to say etc…..
My biggest challenge is the balance piece and your book does it beautifully and re frames things really well. I would guess that if I was firmly anchored in my heart as you seem to be, it would be much easier. I would also guess that meditation is important to that end….. which is something that I have pursued and simultaneously avoided for many years…..Dr Doolittle’s lama comes to mind…..
With your book it will be much easier to suggest to the Seekers to read it instead of taking the convoluted and sometimes exceedingly harsh path I have bumped along for the past few years or having to struggle for the right words. Yours will work very well, thank you. I am so very grateful to have found you, your writings, and most of all the Light that you shine to all of us who search for it.

Ida Lawrence has written something here that is truly different. Normally, independent spiritual thinkers inspire us to wake up, perhaps open a 3rd eye and see the world around us. But Ida has the ability to cause us to pause and take a truly deep inner look at ourselves. The Warrior’s Way to Heaven on Earth opened glimpses into myself that were uncomfortable, it exposed bias and weaknesses that I wasn’t fully conscious of. This self exposure though is powerful and enables true Heaven on Earth. Great read, stirs the deep conscious. This book feels like it was written by a True Spiritual Warrior. Much to learn here, Can’t wait for more.
Review from Chautauqua Hunter
In the very fine print at the bottom of the spiritual contract we all signed prior to coming to this place is a disclaimer, something about agreeing to do this without the benefit of an owner’s manual. Indeed, many of us have often thought how much easier this spiritual sojourn would be with an owner’s manual, or even a map to guide us. Especially now; as we are experiencing the great shift of the ages on so many levels, knowing how to navigate this unknown country becomes a priority. In The Warrior’s Way to Heaven on Earth the author has mapped out the terrain we now find ourselves in, and provided keys to unlocking the ever expanding mystery of self.
This book is about Real Knowledge and the journey from separation to unity consciousness for all mankind. It is about the path to becoming an authentic human being, moving closer to our higher self, and inner divinity; as we weather the storms of life. It is about what happens to our natural happiness as we grow older. The author has turned the unflinching eye of clarity on subjects which will leave some squirmingly uncomfortable; from the inner child, to grappling with our shadow selves, and why we are addicted to our own sadness.
The Warrior’s Way to Heaven on Earth examines such questions as “Why do we feel like this is all there is?” and “What is the collective karma of the human shadow aspect?” Even as it is asking these fundamental questions; the book also delves into subjects like M-theory and the Holographic Universe as the examination of the human condition centers on the responsibility each of us share in the return to oneness and unity consciousness. Many have the incorrect impression that being a spiritual warrior is all about overcoming death. What the author so beautifully points out is that being a spiritual warrior isn’t about waiting for the storms to pass ~ it’s about learning to dance in the rain, and how to create Heaven right here on Earth.
Ida Lawrence has been a writer for nearly 30 years. She has contributed to and edited two anthologies on racial justice and human rights, and has written extensively on a number of subjects that help to explore self and society. Her approach is to find and express the inner truth… the answer to ‘why’.
