I interviewed author Britta Hochkeppel about her life, what inspires her to write, and the creative process that went into her latest book, Healing Symbols From A Higher Dimension.
Tell me a bit about who you are.
I’m a German-born, Essex-based Author, Intuitive Healer, Holistic Light Worker and the Founder of Vita Serena (https://vitaserena.co.uk) I was inspired by my Grandmother and sensing that I had a gift from the age of six years old, I started to explore my own spiritual and psychic abilities, and I’m now harnessing their full power. I recently released my second book; ‘Healing Symbols from a Higher Dimension’, through which I’m aiming to inspire and provide keys for healing and wholeness!
When did you first WANT to write a book?
It’s not so much about me wanting to write books, rather that because of my practices and spiritual connection with the universe, the books have been given to me as a gift. I feel obligated to share this knowledge for the benefit of everyone who wants to take steps towards their own healing and ongoing wholeness.
When did you take a step to start writing?
I took my first baby steps in writing in 2014.
As a born Intuitive, I trust my inner calling. During that time I felt that I should write a book that deals with aspects connected with negative inner dialogue, inner childhood wounds and their impact on mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. I wanted to offer tips and healing tools that would support anyone struggling with these issues.
I wanted to create something that was easy to read, process and apply.
A lot of people find complex literature dealing with emotional and mental health overwhelming and I prefer to keep things short, simple and effortless to read and follow.
I added supportive self-help techniques and the feedback has been phenomenal!
90 percent of my clients suffer with physical symptoms that find their roots in childhood trauma, negative beliefs and negative thought patterns.
This manifests in a low vibrational “hamster wheel” and it is the vibration of this that attracts the same negativity back into our lives.
We become what we think and we are what we think.
How long did it take you to complete your first book from the first idea to release?
The Key to Loving yourself was written in 2014 and took just four months to turn around. I had the idea in January and self-published in Spring of that year. The book wrote itself within just 5 weeks! All it took was to get into the flow and time just dissolved.
The editing and self-publishing took 2 months.
How long did it take you to complete your latest book from the first idea to release?
Healing Symbols was definitely more of a journey – since 2017, I have become increasingly aware of signs from beings of higher intelligence. This awareness has been further enhanced during recent months. The connection I have with what I call the higher dimensions has increased, and I trust the messages and requests they give me. In 2017, I was given the first set of 11 Healing Symbols to channel and download. During the lockdown of 2020, I channeled another 11 Healing Symbols. The most recent request I received was to write this book, ‘Healing Symbols from a Higher Dimension’, which was mostly channeled but also includes my perspective on things. The aim of the book is to inspire people and provide them with the key to the code and the practical symbols they need to raise their own vibration. Only through the combined efforts of many individuals doing so, can we raise our overall planetary emotional and spiritual vibrations too.
Focusing on your latest book release. What made you want to write Healing Symbols From A Higher Dimension?
Many people are feeling anxious and fearful for their future coming out of lockdown, which is being amplified by a concurrent time of global transformation. Most of us are living below our potential vibrational state, burdened by the chains of a depleting belief system and holding onto our past mistakes. Unless we recognise and deal with them, we become locked into a repetitive cycle that we struggle to break free from. This lowered energetic state manifests in us as physical and emotional pain.
My new book is a fascinating glimpse into another dimension, beginning with my worldview and introducing the ideas of energy, balance and the ‘global vibe,’ drawing on my knowledge of ancient civilisations; Egyptians, Celts and Mayans and continuing to explore techniques using symbols to heal; PTSD, loss, emotional-physical dissonance and enjoy peace, and happiness to name but a few.
As Albert Einstein once said – “Everything in Life is Vibration” – All matter in the universe is made up of energy that vibrates. The intention of this book is to manifest these powerful healing symbols into our physical world and bodies to support healing on a cellular level and to raise our vibration as a collective consciousness. The unique frequencies of these powerful healing symbols are recognised by our cells and transposed into healing vibrations, which are absorbed by the entire mind-body system.
Focusing on symbols, literally by concentrating visually on the required symbol, whilst engaging with deep breathing and chanting its name, is the beginning of a hugely complex healing process. Similar to sound healing, the vibration of the symbols bypasses the interference of our often resistant intellectual brain and is then able to penetrate the cellular system, thereby initiating and supporting true healing changes.
I have definitely been born with a gift, and I feel it’s my responsibility, and privilege, to guide people. May the healing vibration of the high dimensional symbols benefit everyone who comes into contact with them and raise the vibrational state within their emotional, mental and physical body around the world.
What were your biggest challenges with writing Healing Symbols From A Higher Dimension?
Stepping forward as a messenger, I am aware that introducing something new such as these vibrational healing symbols will divide opinion, but I can only follow my heart and my truth.
What was your research process for Healing Symbols From A Higher Dimension?
My ‘research’ is 26 years of experience combined with my ability to connect and tune into source, (otherwise known as universal energy,) the quantum field we are all plugged into.
Our thoughts continue to emanate beyond our physical bodies but we also receive millions of particles that can connect with our DNA. We are constantly transmitting and receiving data.
The received information penetrates into the brain, the nervous system and from there back into the mental body where we process the information from the subconscious into the conscious mind.
I received the information for this book as a result of the combination of my experience as a Naturopath and Energy-healer as well as symbols given to me by, what I like to call, higher Intelligence or higher Dimensions as mentioned in the title of my Book.
How did you plan the structure of Healing Symbols From A Higher Dimension?
The structure of my book is sympathetic to my work as a Naturopath, Kinesiologist and Energy Healer.
I wanted to open a window offering greater insight into how thoughts and emotions affect the physical body and the rest was the logical flow of the story based on the events leading up to receiving the healing symbols and creating the description qualities of the symbols.
Did you get support with editing, and how much editing did Healing Symbols From A Higher Dimension need?
Yes, I believe in the quality of the material as well as the subject matter and, after completion, I paid an editor who looked over the grammar and flow. Being German, I require the skilled eye of an editor to ensure everything was easy to understand. The writing should never get in the way of the message.
What is the first piece of writing advice you would give to anyone inspired to write a book?
I think my advice to people in general, authors included, is never to deny their uniqueness, but to celebrate and discover it. You will be permanently frustrated and never fulfill your gift and universal calling if you suppress who you are. That book is the life and soul of who you are. Write your passion, your emerging story, your novel, your guide but do it all from a place of complete honesty and integrity as a human being, not because you’re writing a formula for a paycheck. You will only rob your readership of a truth you are the messenger for.
Practically, you need to know where you’re going; I like to put my ‘mental scaffolding’ in place, and then do my research.
Secondly, make it your own…remain authentic and true to how you wish to interpret and write “your story. “ Stay true to yourself because your own experience matters. Don’t become a copy of anyone else. Be fearless! Remember that your book is your personal view or interpretation on a topic or story. Trust that your individual perception will help or inspire others and do not not compare yourself to others. Everyone has their story and yours is needed.
Can you give me a hint about any further books you’re planning to write?
I will only write when I’m inspired and I’m inspired by dimensions far greater than myself. I’m really just the messenger. When I receive the next keys in the universal journey, I will do my best to commit them to paper as accurately as I can.
And, finally, are you proud of your accomplishment? Was it worth the effort?
As a messenger, I’m delighted that people can join me on this journey of self-discovery to a more balanced and whole place within themselves and everyone they affect. As an individual, I’m thrilled to be using the medium of writing to communicate to a wide-reaching audience. Our generation needs to see with both its spiritual and natural eyes and I’m hoping that others might catch the possibilities contained within my latest book. So yes, writing is always worth the effort!
