This heart-centred international teacher published her first book, the best-selling Raise Your Vibration, Transform Your Life: A Practical Guide for Attaining Better HealthVitality and Inner Peace, in 2010, followed by six successful books. In 2020, Dawn felt moved to write about her journey in Unveiled. She hopes that it will offer a road map to millions of people who are waking up to a new world. James explains, “This is my story of the lifting of veils, of revelations, and waking up to my own life.”
Following her life-changing experiences, James explains how she became a conscious observer of her life. She expounds, “When I reflected on my past, from infancy, and started writing about my bumps in the road of life, something amazing began to unfold. I began to see a pattern in my timeline.” The knowledge that she gained, as a result, will help others awaken to their personal power. Dawn discovered that her life tests were setting her up for triumphs and an empowering truth that she wants everyone to understand.
Unveiled celebrates James’s highest calling which is to show others that they are more than the skin they live in, and like her, were created to walk boldly in their spirit with an expectation to pursue happiness and health while coexisting in harmony with all living beings. Unveiled will help readers redefine the current version of themselves to uncover a more generous design of their best self, highlighting Dawn’s message that at any time, anyone can awaken.
Bold Men Who Have Found Victory in Telling Their Most Personal Stories
Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion. ~ Muhammad Ali
Atlanta, Ga. – Dec. 30, 2020 — New anthology And Still Champion: The Reality of What 7 Men Endured features the most revealing, provocative and personal stories of seven Black men committed to pulling back the curtain and exposing the unfiltered truth about manhood. The book promises to share real talk by real men. And Still Champion is set for release on January 17th — what would have been the 78th birthday of the World’s Greatest Boxer and Champion, Muhammad Ali. It is also the day that a virtual book launch will take place to celebrate the book at 6:30 p.m.
And Still Champion tells some of the most private experiences of young African American men who battle everything from drug use and molestation to finding who they truly were and how they all avoided ending up as statistics. And Still Champion is the vision of Minister, Author, Speaker and Men’s Leader, Prince Blair. Prince, who contributed to the book, is also credited and known for taking young men off the streets and snatching them from the grips of gangs and a life of crime. Blair wanted to write the book to show the depth of experience settled in the silence of Black men. Blair said, “If you take time to listen, the silence of a Black man can reveal a real sense of resilience, triumph and understanding. The book was a move to inspire more men to share the things that they have long held in silence and considered disappointments, but instead have made them who they are—champions.”
And Still Champion was co-written by Speaker, Entrepreneur and Educator, Jamal Laurence Burt, Entertainer, Comedian, Minister and Entrepreneur, Willie L. Brown, Corporate Level Recruiter and Retired Marine Master Sergeant, Harold Holden, Minister, Ministry Leader and Certified Mentor, Carlton Hurdle, Advanced Medical Support Assistant, Licensed Minister, Certified Life Coach and Counselor, Mitchell Mormon, and Chaplin, Counselor, Certified Life Coach, Missionary and Healthcare Professional, A.C. Scott.
The goal of the book is to connect men and young men who are in some of the most challenging seasons of their lives and offer stories of triumph in the face of adversity.
And Still Champion: The Reality of What 7 Men Endured is edited by Christine Bode and published by Publish & Promote.

I don’t know if you feel the same way, but for me, 2020 has been an incredibly challenging year. For the first four months of the COVID-19 pandemic I found myself in disbelief, experiencing powerful emotions, the most prominent being that of anger. I started doing something I don’t usually do because I’m an empath. I read and watched the news. And I didn’t just read or listen to the mainstream news, I read alternative news sources, sources that were claimed to be from the alt-right, radical left, sources by people who have been claimed to be disgraced or discredited, you name it. I wanted to get everyone’s side of the story so that I can make up my own mind about what I believe and I respect everyone’s right to do the same without calling them out for spreading ‘misinformation.’ I have worked in social media marketing for 12 years and I have never experienced the level of censorship by the media, the government, Big Tech and Big Pharma, that I do right now. I found myself so far down the rabbit hole of conspiracy theories about what is really going on during this pandemic that I ended up with the worst bout of anxiety I have ever experienced in my life. I still don’t know who I should trust for information about the Coronavirus, but I decided that enough was enough and I needed to do something to raise my vibration and fast!
I have been both an associate and friend of author, sound healer, and Conscious Living Teacher, Dawn James, for ten years. I am the senior editor for her company, Publish and Promote, so I know that she is a very intelligent woman of the utmost integrity and I have watched her create more than one successful business for herself with her knowledge, determination, perseverance, and hard work. I have also experienced her sound healing workshop in which she practices therapeutic healing with Tibetan and crystal singing bowls and it is divine. I wish I could attend one every day. Although I have never been one to totally immerse myself in “woo-woo land,” I do believe that we, as human beings, are made of energy and that we do have the power to create the reality that we want to live in. But how do we do that? How can we change our perception of the world at a time when it is an exceedingly difficult place to live in?
After reading Dawn’s ‘Raise Your Vibration’ trilogy, beginning with Raise Your Vibration, Transform Your Life: A Practical Guide for Attaining Better Health, Vitality and Inner Peace, How to Raise The Vibration Around You: Volume 1 – Working with the 4 Elements to Create Healthy and Harmonious Living Spaces, and Raise The Vibration Between Us: Forgiveness, Karma, and Freedom, I feel more calm, grounded and positive than I have felt in months. However, I am also just a little overwhelmed by how much work I must do to change my life so that I am living in a much more conscious and positive state of being. I have started to make some changes, but I know I have a long way to go, starting with my own self-talk.
In the first book in Dawn James’ trilogy (which I read ten years ago for the first time), Raise Your Vibration, Transform Your Life: A Practical Guide for Attaining Better Health, Vitality and Inner Peace, Dawn tells us how we can raise our vibration within ourselves by making conscious choices about what we eat, drink, breathe, and where and with whom we spend our time. She gives us examples of and exercises for how we can do these things and leaves us with key messages from each chapter. She talks about breath work, essential oils, crystals and gemstones, sound and colour, time spent in nature (which has been my saviour) and in silence and meditation, as well as with positive people. She also reminds us to practice gratitude and forgiveness, and provides the reader with a glossary and references.
After reading this book again, I was inspired to purchase my own Tibetan singing bowl, a pottery dish in which to put the crystals and gemstones that I have (and I made a list of new ones to purchase) and I placed them on my desk. I also started keeping a gratitude journal again. I usually just give gratitude to God and the Universe out loud every night before I go to bed but now, I am writing it down, and I’m meditating more often and concentrating on my breathing.
In Dawn’s second book, How to Raise The Vibration Around You: Volume 1 – Working with the 4 Elements to Create Healthy and Harmonious Living Spaces, Dawn teaches us how to raise the vibration in our homes through working with the elements of Air, Light, Water and Earth. She covers smell and the olfactory system, air quality, sound and the auditory cortex of the brain, the vibration of water and how to improve water quality at home, as well as eco-friendly ways of cleaning our homes and ourselves. Dawn also explores Earth’s gifts including Himalayan Salt lamps, crystal grids, flowers, and gardening, and presents the reader with some wonderful charts and recipes.
While reading this book, I was inspired to create a Pinterest board called Raise Your Vibration which you can find on Pinterest and have pinned images/articles that speak to everything that Dawn covers in her books. I may yet organize them into collections when time permits. I also smudged my apartment with white sage, bought some aromatherapy candles, new air-purifying house plants, and am looking into purchasing an Alkaline Spring water system. For me, changing my eating habits and sticking to those changes has always been the most challenging hurdle in my life but I am inspired to try harder.
Raise The Vibration Between Us: Forgiveness, Karma, and Freedom is a short book that took me less than 24 hours to read. While it may be short, it is perhaps the most important book in this trilogy as Dawn speaks to the significance of forgiveness and what we gain from it, karma and how it affects us as well as how to clear it, and how to create space in our lives for freedom. I have yet to do the homework laid out in this book but I vow to because I know that it is the most powerful work of all that we can do to raise our vibration and transform our lives.
I am paying it forward by telling you how profoundly life-changing the information in these books could be for you if you read them and then consciously choose to employ at least some of the teachings within them. I am aware that true change doesn’t occur overnight and will not be earth-shattering simply because we purchase some new objects for our home but if those objects can serve to remind us to stay conscious and to keep trying our best to raise our vibration, then I believe they are worth every penny.
There has never been a time on this planet more pertinent than NOW for making a decision to raise our vibration and transform our lives so if you want to purchase these books for yourself or learn more about Dawn James, visit her website at www.dawnjames.ca. I’m proud to have edited Dawn’s autobiography, Unveiled: Autobiography of An Awakened One which will be released in 2021 and I can tell you that it is a fascinating story.
