Imagine being condemned with a terrible, incurable disease that rips away everything in life that matters to you. Only a deeply courageous person could take on such a challenge and come out victorious.
Katina Makris was diagnosed with advanced neurological Lyme disease and was given a 10% chance of survival, after 17 neurologists and countless other physicians misdiagnosed her over a 5-year period. On her deathbed, she was overcome with the passion to recover and help others.
She has gone on to live a remarkable life as a healer, author and teacher. This book contains the innermost thoughts captured in her journal as she came to the realization that self-love and compassion for others changes everything.
“May the pages in this book help you to believe in yourself and that nothing really is impossible. Our mind, heart and spirit are vastly capable and when we take the time to be quiet and present within our self, versus multitasking and pushing so hard on the external planes of societal expectations. Often, we can become disconnected or fuzzy in our connection to inner source and higher consciousness. My intention is to help illuminate your pathway of inner resource.”
I hope to share thoughts and insights and messages of inspiration to many of you on your healing journey or merely daily life of more aware living. As both a seeker and a messenger, I look forward to sharing in mutual support, the amazing gifts of inner mind-body-spirit skills we all possess.”

The Treasured Gift of this Lifetime
I am taking a brief moment to send my deep healing wishes to all those who suffer with illness in their life. I know the pains, the sorrow, the isolation, the fears and the dependency it can create in your world. Having been bed ridden and house bound for many years myself, I recall the loneliness and confusion I often felt. I missed the comings and goings of just everyday happenings, like driving or going out sledding with my kids. Using my body in an athletic way was a huge loss for me and I pined to swim in the surf or dance all sweaty hot in a dimly lit music filled bar. I loved cooking and gardening and hiking in the pine clad forests. Working in my busy office, tending to the woes of little ones and their ear infections of the misery of menstrual discomforts among the womenfolk, slipped away as the undiagnosed Lyme disease eroded my world, stripping me of so very much.
I am a new person now. Five years of devoted healing work helped me reclaim my life in a vibrant new vibration. I know many of you have been stymied by the medical profession, as you try to recover from the physical woes. This creates much confusion and a sense of betrayal for some of us. Healing requires both physical ministering, personal care and inner poise. Please know that you are gifted and wise and sensing beings.
There are personal tools and energies we can each harness and use to help ourselves promote a shift in our health and well-being. By using positive intention, prayers for healing, willpower statements, you can initiate a trickle of the feel-good hormones and neurotransmitters in the brain, which will stimulate the immune system. Dancing and laughing in glee last weekend reminded me of what joy and passion we possess within, so accessible via music, art, comedy and beauty.
So, let’s take a break. Let’s turn off the lights, stoke the fire, and put on some great music. Allow your mind to wander, your eyes to drift, your skin to sense. Just hang out. It’s Ok. Actually, it is wonderful. Daydreams, leisurely talks, gazing at the autumn leaves are gestures of self-nourishment. Appreciate your senses, the color of the sky, the energy of a moment. You are feeding your spirit when you hang out in this void of space- the act of not doing, but just being.
So, beautiful beings, my new friends and acquaintances, readers and maybe just passers-by, I remind you all, to cherish the pleasure, the bounty, the grace of just simply being you! In the moment of such stillness may you glimpse the treasured gift of this lifetime.
