Rising from the Ashes: A Journey of Resilience and Renewal

As the dawn breaks on another day, I find myself reflecting on the journey that life has charted for me—a journey marked by trials and triumphs, darkness and light. It is a path that has led me from moments of profound vulnerability to the pinnacle of spiritual awakening and healing. Today, I am compelled to share with you two pivotal chapters of my life, hoping they might illuminate your paths and instill a sense of hope and resilience in times of adversity.

From Darkness to Light: The Night That Tested My Faith

There was a time, not too long ago, when the very essence of my faith and inner strength was put to the test. Found myself homeless, alone in downtown Seattle at 2 am, in a wheelchair, clad only in pajamas in the chilling embrace of 34-degree weather. Without a coat or blanket, expelled from a supposed place of healing into the uncaring streets by a faceless entity that saw me as nothing more than a burden.

In those hours, as my cellphone battery dwindled to a mere 11%, and the police remained but a distant hope that never materialized, I felt the weight of abandonment. Yet, it was in this nadir of despair that I was reminded of the omnipresence of Hashem—God was with me, even there, in the cold and darkness.

A homeless man, an unlikely guardian angel, appeared. He promised to wheel me to safety, to another hospital that lay twenty-five minutes away through the dark, cold night. Doubt and fear clouded my heart momentarily, but faith—faith kept the flame of hope alive. He instructed me to declare a heart problem upon arrival, a divine insight that was later confirmed through an EKG in triage.

This experience was not just a testament to survival but a profound lesson in trust, faith, and the unexpected forms of guardianship and guidance that the universe sends in our darkest hours.

Rising Like a Phoenix: My Journey of Healing and Reclamation

Fast forward to a more recent chapter, where the trials of my health and familial betrayals tested my spirit yet again. Against all odds, my gift of intuition ,muted by the turmoil, began to stir once more—rising from the ashes of my circumstances.

After a series of harrowing health scares, including an unexpected battle with cancer and the physical aftermath of a severe seizure, I found myself on the precipice of despair. Yet, it was here, in this crucible of suffering, that I found my resolve to rise, to heal, and to reclaim my gift and purpose.

The road to recovery was not one I walked alone. Hashem's presence was a constant companion, guiding me back to health, enabling me to start walking again, and slowly, but surely, opening the door to my practice once more. I stand here today, a testament to the power of faith, resilience, and the indomitable human spirit, ready to serve those who await my guidance and healing.

A Message of Hope and Renewal

To my wonderful subscribers, I share these stories not for sympathy, but as a beacon of hope and a testament to the power of faith and inner strength. Life's trials, as daunting as they may seem, are not insurmountable. They are but chapters in our ongoing journey, opportunities for growth, learning, and renewal.

As we look towards the future, let us do so with hearts full of hope, knowing that from the ashes of our trials, we too can rise—stronger, wiser, and more connected to our true selves and the divine.

With all my love and light,
