New Subtitle for Ebook

Trust the Mystery has a new subtitle for the second edition of the ebook, which came out on January 25, 2017: Trust the Mystery: Raising Self-Awareness through Questions, Quotes, and Quantum Wisdom.

Wrasma Marketing, my indie publishing imprint, brought out this new edition as a Kindle Select.


Notice the Wrasma Marketing logo in the lower left-hand cover of the image. It’s a bow and arrow to depict faith, hope, and love, the three virtues that last forever. The greatest of these is love. Pulling back the bow is an action of faith; watching it travel to its target is an action of hope; the target itself is love. My services as an author & book editor bring my readers closer to love through faith and hope.


As I thoroughly enjoy both the creative writing that authorship requires as well as the technical steps that running my own blog requires, I created the file for the ebook myself, because I learned that an ebook is nothing more than a collection of html files zipped up with images and a cascading stylesheet. So, I enjoyed the process of creating and editing this ebook, every step of the way.


For the technical souls out there, I’ve been using calibre, the ebook management tool, to smooth out the html and css that support each chapter.


I hear you asking, “What’s changed in this second edition?” I’ve made the formatting the simple style that’s necessary for ebooks so the text (whether headings or content) can flow and change sizes and fonts smoothly. I’ve merged a couple of the scenes together and moved a couple of things around. I’ve updated some of the information that has changed since I first completed the book in 2015. I’ve simplified the language in several places.


And the changed subtitle highlights the fact that Trust the Mystery is a book that raises readers’ self-awareness slowly and organically, by helping them see the mysteries that exist all around them, and by having them realize how much they can influence and change their own lives in every moment.


Join me on the virtual publication book tour for Trust the Mystery and Spiraling Self-Awareness, a brand new ebook.

“The more we trust the mystery, the closer we align with our true nature”

ninashoroplova-trustthemystery-frontcover-smallTrust the Mystery couples engaging storytelling with provocative quotes and questions to inspire my readers into observing and reflecting on their own life with greater awareness. The process starts to reveal our purpose. How we respond from our own inner divine wisdom interprets our experiences of living in this world; this affects our consciousness and our awareness of where we are on our path.

As you read my stories, your growing awareness becomes a garment you wear more easily, shifting your behaviour toward participating positively with family, friends, colleagues, coworkers, and even opponents. You move into intentional living, polishing your thoughts, words, and actions until they shine with the light of inner wisdom.

My bestselling book Trust the Mystery brings together the spiritual and the rational, the knowable and the unknowable, science and mystery. I gently discuss straightforward knowledge of the tools at our disposal—our emotions and senses, our chakra connections, our thoughts, words, and deeds. Then I present a range of mysteries in the world that we tend to ignore

Trust the Mystery raises readers’ spiritual self-awareness of their own place within the mystery.

Trust the Mystery

Quantum wisdom is that energetic potential and guidance that’s available to each of us. How do we find it? Nina Shoroplova says, “We get there when we trust the mystery and release the striving and struggle in our lives.”

She should know—she’s worked as a holistic healer and she’s recovered from a range of life-threatening dis-eases (her spelling).

Shoroplova is the author of Trust the Mystery: Questions, Quotes, and Quantum Wisdom, published in September 2015 by Influence Publishing of North Vancouver.

By examining our emotions, thoughts, words, and actions, Trust the Mystery guides its readers into greater self-awareness of their essential part in the mystery. Self-inquiry and self-awareness bring to light the mystery of life; they help us remember who we truly are; they help us find our purpose and our path.

Shoroplova describes what Trust the Mystery is about.

A Taste of Chapter One

Chapter One of Trust the Mystery is now available as a free pdf for those who sign up for my newsletter. For those of you who are wondering about signing up, here’s a taste of Chapter One, from the section entitled “Sensing Energies” (page 23).

~ Four or Five Physical Senses, or Nine ~
“A sense is a physiological capacity of organisms that provides data for perception.” “Sense” (Accessed November 1, 2014)

Up until the time I studied human anatomy and physiology at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in Vancouver in 2010 (having previously studied human anatomy during physiotherapy training in the 1960s), I believed that humans have five senses—seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and touching. But Marieb’s Essentials of Human Anatomy & Physiology explains that we have just four “special senses”—seeing, hearing, smelling, and tasting—and that the sense we call “touching” is a combination of the “general senses” of perceiving temperature, pressure, pain, balance, and position (Elaine N. Marieb, R.N., Ph.D, Essentials of Human Anatomy & Physiology, 8th edition (Old Tappan, NJ: Pearson Higher Education, 2009).

Since having a fractured hip replaced in 2014, I absolutely know that the ball-and-socket hip joint provides the rest of the body with information about balance and body position. I know this because twice since the surgery I have righted myself only moments short of falling. My artificial hip joint does not provide my brain with the information regarding balance that my original hip used to provide.

I realize what this greater vulnerability implies: that every other joint and muscle and tendon is also constantly providing information that my brain takes and interprets to keep me safe. Isn’t that impressive? If you agree, you probably share my normal state of awe toward the human body, actually toward every animal’s body, every tree, every plant, shell, feather, leaf, and perfect drop of water.

When we “lose” something, like a hip joint, and we “gain” something else, like an artificial hip joint, we also gain a new way of seeing and perceiving ourselves.

Have you lost any part of your body in your life? What did you gain in its place? How do the loss and the gain affect your perception of yourself? Physically? Sensorily? Emotionally? Mentally?
