“Being at odds with your-selves is self-defeating. United you stand. Divided you fall.”

Affirmation ~ The more grateful I am, the more reasons I find to be grateful.


Sometimes you don’t know what you are made of until you start to fall apart and your best parts pop out and hold you together. You are made up of so much more than id, ego and super ego. Sometimes, bad things happen to good people. That’s life. But, you don’t have to be a victim of circumstances. In fact, listening to our inner-guidance can save you from being a victim at all.


I embarked on a similar journey to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland when I fell down the rabbit hole of Cancerland. As a child I had been encouraged to suppress my intuitive gifts of hearing voices, playing with imaginary friends and drawing auras. It was not acceptable in my school or church. So, I locked my intuitions away in the depths of my mind. But, when my life was threatened by misdiagnosis and Hospital Policy my guides blew off the doors of their cell and flew to my rescue. Rather than being a victim of circumstances, I self-advocated and became an active participant in my race for life.


   My guides lead me through my tunnel of crisis and out the other side.


Illness is the vehicle that drives my bigger story of survival against all odds while locked in a relationship triangle between my husband and crisis. What is driving you? Who will be the victor?


 Embracing intuition built a bridge that remained under constant construction and stretched between conventional and metaphysical healing. It became my bridge-to-everywhere which manifested exits and new entrances on the road to a complete healing of mind body and spirit.


Cancerland is an intellectual, emotional, and intuitive amusement park where every ride, game, and attraction demonstrates a different aspect of humanity’s complexities and individualism during the process of healing. The same hold true for any Crisisland where you must seek multiple explanations of the way things are in the physical, spiritual, psychic, and dream world of health and emotional trauma.
                Crisis is humbling and comes in many forms. It can be:

•             a life threatening illness,
•             a lifestyle change,
•             divorce
•             death
•             financial downturns
•             or all of the above.

Crisis is guaranteed to knock you down with its series of catastrophes that begin with discovery, often with no end in sight. Your Intuition can play an important part in survival and is defined as instinctively knowing without conscious reasoning.


Three things I seek to present by writing this multi-media blog is:
1.       An alternative to ignoring your intuition in favor of science
2.       Or ignoring science in favor of intuition. 
3.       Why limit yourself with one when you can use both to your advantage?


Don’t be a victim of circumstances.


The best way to survive any crisis is to mix intuitive and scientific information and then cross-check them against each other for answers which are indisputably correct. Listen, then verify. Believe but validate. By respecting both modalities, you double your chances of finding correct answers to complicated issues.


It is time to stop ignoring yourself and discover your voice. 


Every challenge you overcame creates a new part of your inner voice/personality. In order to effectively battle crisis, you must get in touch with your inner selves and work together toward the goal of survival by using everything available to you. By searching within yourself through dreams, meditation, or prayer, you will find your own set of answers to any challenge.
