Several decades ago, an astrologer told me I would write a book.
I never imagined I would do that until I attended a seminar at the Esalen Institute in September 2010 where I was assisting Dr. Leonard Laskow in his seminar “Awakening The Healing Heart”. The seminar happened to be scheduled during the time in between the Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. A seminar participant asked about the significance of the “High Holy Days” and I found myself saying, “The time is referred to as the Days of Awe.”
As I heard the words come out of my mouth, I realized I had never before spoken “The Days of Awe.” The next thing I said surprised me as well: “’The Days of Awe: Facilitating and Witnessing God’s Healing’ will be the name of my book.”
And since that time I have been compelled to share the many stories of healing I have witnessed. I sense that my soul’s calling is in facilitating and witnessing God’s healing.
Once I was well underway, however, I found myself in a dilemma. Every time I thought I was ready to complete the book, another amazing story was revealed. How would I ever complete the book, knowing that so many compelling stories would have to be excluded? But as the saying goes, “when you’re given a dilemma, make dilemmonade.” I realized the best way to share these stories was to post them on my website, and continue adding one story at a time.
Maybe someday there WILL be a book, but until then … may you enjoy these stories and be inspired, and may they spark a healing in you and those you come in contact with.
I now see that every event and situation in my life has been divinely orchestrated, and as I result, I have learned that EVERYTHING in my life IS for my own growth, healing, and evolution. I learned that everything I have ever wanted and needed is already here, inside of me. There was nothing broken and there was nothing to fix. It’s only Love and Understanding as I remember the truth of who I am as a Divine Being using this human experience!
My gratitude goes to Dr.’s Ron and Mary Hulnick, and all of the faculty, staff and assistants at the University of Santa Monica; to Dr. Leonard Laskow and Sama Laskow, to Sydney Banks, and all of my living Three Principles teachers; to my family: Jere Friedman, Rachel Alter, Benjamin Alter, Bill Metz, Marge Metz, Robert Metz, and each one of my clients.
