I knew it before, but as soon as I started writing my novel it became ever so increasingly apparent to me. Words are magic. They play a big role in shaping our reality. I will elaborate one day soon. For now know this, I created the name Jivana. I was inspired by a term I came across called "jivan" which meant liberated soul. I knew instantly that would be the name for my character Raver J after her initial debut in 2004.
