Stella came to this world through home birth, to her father, Benjamin Rigel (43), and her mother, Ambrosia Jane Rigel (40).
This nontraditional family was over the full moon to the birth of their only child. Ambrosia wanted to name her after the
stars, because she believed that this beautiful girl was plucked from the ocean of stars and thus, was a star, so she named
her Estelle. Her father believed she was a gift, the first child, and named her after the first human woman created, Pandora.
Her name then became Estelle Pandora Rigel.

Benjamin Rigel was already an established author on amazon. Selling about 20 books a month, mostly to newly divorced
single mothers who thought reading books about meditation was how they could satisfy their spiritual needs. His
Transcendence series sold the most books overall, but the Kama Sutra Find Fulfillment was his most popular book with
Find Your Dream Self being his least.
✧ ✦ ✧
After selling his first 100 books, Ambrosia Jane decided to officially celebrate with both her and Benjamin's families through
a spiritual wedding. They had been spiritually married for many years, since their early twenties, but now they wanted to
make it official to the rest of their families, who thought less of their unique lifestyles. However, she only took her partners
surname when their daughter was born.
✧ ✦ ✧
Ambrosia Jane decided that she no longer wanted to just help her partner perform spiritual healing to the wonderful
strangers who believed in him, she wanted something more. She met with an older lady who knew the powers of spiritual
gems with a promise that Ambrosia Jane could finally bear child. She approached her partner with the wish to create two
bracelets beaded with small gems so the two of them could finally conceive. They each made a bracelet containing Rose
Quartz, Lepidolite, Aquamarine, White agate, Moonstone and one large Emerald as the center piece. Ambrosia Jane was
with child 6 months later, she never took off the bracelet during the entire pregnancy. She also insisted on giving birth at
home, with the gem lady as the midwife.
✧ ✦ ✧
During the 15 months the ladies spent together, Ambrosia Jane learnt about the wonders of gems. She decided to start
creating soaps based on constellations, celestial bodies and gems. With the help of her partner, she filled the soaps with
energies by adding a real gemstone in the middle of each piece. They would sell these soaps at Benjamin's book signings,
at natural festivals and on their front porch to the wonderful strangers who believed in them. These soaps would cleanse
your spirit, soul and give you energy to move forward. There was nothing more intimate about cleaning yourself with
specialized spiritual soaps. The aquamarine, scented with peach and sprinkled with sea salt, soap, was their most popular
product. This soap would wash away stress, fear and promote the smooth flow of energy throughout your body.
Stella's parents spent a lot of time on their respected hobbies over the years, enough so that she herself was influenced
by their unworldly spiritual talents. Benjamin kept writing books and kept going on book signings across the world and
the family would come with. It was surprising how much of an online presence both have, considering they lived completely
off grid. Their house was small, but built with two pairs of hardworking and loving hands. Eventually, Ambrosia Jane
branched out and created her own Etsy shop, selling her beautifully crafted soaps online and Benjamin decided to create
a YouTube channel to help others reach spiritual awakening.
✧ ✦ ✧
When the so-called frenzy flu sent their country into lockdown, Benjamin and Ambrosia Jane started performing more
intense spiritual healing sessions in their backyard. Stella would help by arranging the gems and crystals to energy of the
person they would be performing the ritual to. At one point, their family was fined for breaking the lockdown. This
prompted Benjamin to create YouTube tutorials on how to perform spiritual healing at home. He always ended the videos
by sending out positive energies to everyone.
✧ ✦ ✧
A few months before the third wave, Benjamin had gotten frequent comments on his videos, as well as emails from a
family man. These messages swore up and down that he had helped heal an elderly woman, the mother of the man,
from the frenzy flu. He also claimed Benjamin's positive energies had prevented the rest of the family of getting infected
as well. This brought pride to him and the two men got into a longer conversation on Skype. Benjamin really wanted to
meet this family and the family man offered to host them.
As the lockdown eased up across the world, Benjamin contacted the man once more and arranged the trip with his
family. However, at the last minute, Ambrosia Jane had to pull out of the family plan. Her business was booming and she
needed to push out more celestial spiritual soaps. The Moon and Mars would be in perfect alignment at the beginning
of March to revitalize moonstones with Mars' fiery passion and energy. She did not join her daughter and her spiritual
husband out of the country, as it would interfere with the business. However, she was willing to take a plane over later.
✧ ✦ ✧
Thus, Benjamin and Stella packed their floral, blue 1976 Volkswagen van and went on the 2300 miles trip in the beginning
of February. Of course, being so connected to nature, they stopped along the way to sniff the flowers, collect some stones
and pebbles and check in on small local gatherings of like-minded people. Benjamin had also advertised to his fans that
he was going on a road trip with his daughter, so they took many breaks along the ways, ranging between a few hours to a
few days each.
✧ ✦ ✧
Along the way, they picked up several hitchhikers and backpackers. Benjamin was a kind man, so he did not mind helping out.
Some needed a quick ride down a long stretch of road, others wanted to cross a country border quicker. One boy in particular
stood out the most. He was actually engaging in conversations, asking about the books stacked on the floor, this seemed like a
person who had traveled with strangers before. He wasn't alone, he had traveled with friends and they all squeezed into the
back of the van.They just wanted a ride to anywhere, they didn't mind, just somewhere new. After a 6-ish hour long journey, the
group was dropped off in Simferopol in the Crimean Peninsula. Benjamin offered the group reading materials and one bar of
celestial soaps for each. The boy received a copy of Your Inner Eye and another received Find Your Dream Self, as he had the
most of the latter book due to it not being very successful. The pair wished them all the luck and continued on.
This eventually brought them to Chernarus. They spent around two weeks with their host family, sharing stories, recording
videos. Stella became friends with the daughter of this family and they decided to become pen-pals for the future. They
traded addresses. However, because they had only listened to homemade cassettes in the van, they were informed by the
family the day they were leaving, that the country had gone into lockdown again. Being carefree, Benjamin and Stella decided
to just wait it out with this family, even camping out in a lavvu in their backyard.
✧ ✦ ✧
Benjamin started performing spiritual healing to friends of the family man who claimed to be sick with frenzy flu, those
who refused to seek out help in the medical industry, or those who heard rumors about being forced into forced isolation
and/or quarantine and were scared. At one point, Benjamin himself started displaying the illness. He became very
aggressive, but being the 61 year old man that he was, it was just a matter of time before any kind of flu would result in
✧ ✦ ✧
Stella had slept in the van that night and found her father motionless and cold in the morning. She was upset, cried for an
hour or two on her own, before she announced the death to the host family. While sobbing over the death of her father, she
read his book Guide Your Loved Ones To The Afterlife. She immediately asked for their assistance in performing a Guide
Ritual. Stella knew her father had accumulated enough karma from this and all his previous lives, but she needed to help
him find the right path to Nirvana. She knew she was the only one who could keep him from staying in Naraka for too long.
The crystals and gems were laid out and the host family gathered in circles as Stella seemed to sing, or speak, in sounds.
The sun seemed to shine through the entire ritual, giving her the peace she needed. She was happy she could help guide
her father to the afterlife, she was no longer sad over his death, she was actually content with it.
The host family opened their doors to Stella, they let her stay there for as long as she needed. She knew it would be a long
time before she could meet her mother again, possibly not in this life. This was the path that was laid out for her, this was
the first trial of her first life and Stella was going to make the most out of it.
