Shocking… heart-rending… inspiring… compulsive reading.
Healed and saved from above! The autobiographical book of Psalmic poems charting the journey of one abuse survivor to salvation and healing through the mercy of Jesus Christ.
Karl Ayling’s honest and at times heart-rending poetry tells the story of his life, and allows the reader to journey with him from the darkness of despair towards salvation and eventual healing. Karl takes the reader through three key aspects of a transforming life: Healing, Forgiveness and Relationships.
“Hidden within Karl’s poems are gems, insights that feed us: angels being able to fly because they hold things lightly, ‘The rainbow-chasing ceased’, ’A step out of the wilderness towards wonder.’” – Dr Lin Button, founder of the Healing Prayer School and on the staff of All Saints Woodford Wells.

Karl grew up a fighter, living on the darker side of South London until the age of 41 when Jesus found him broken, dishevelled and suicidal.
But he didn’t leave him there…
About the Author
Karl Ayling started to become aware in the 1980’s that all was not well with the world or with him. Initially utilising the energy used on being an avid Judo player, rugby player and half marathon runner – this dedication to physical prowess was transferred gradually into the study of Neuro Linguistic Programming, Sociology, Psychology, Ontology and latterly Theology, Training and personal development in a wide variety of disciplines were eventually dissolved when Karl found Jesus. He was invited to a Healing Conference in Esher, Surrey and there, met the partners who would later form the backbone of Cheam Healing Rooms with initial training provided by the amazing people at South West London Healing Rooms. Between early 2006 and early 2014 Karl ministered at SW London Healing Rooms and on outreach in various London locations. In 2009 he was involved with a group of 12 believers who went on mission to Burundi in central Africa – where events that would change his life forever were experienced. More recently, Karl has embarked upon life changing counselling and inner healing ministry as well as finding time to write his first book. He is happy to speak at a wide range of engagements bringing hope and the message of life in Jesus to those in need, particularly survivors of sexual, emotional and physical abuse. Karl is available for one-to-one prayerful ministry counselling and can respond to email enquiries and prayer requests, please see the link above.
