At the Whole Health Medicine Institute, we just graduated the second class of miracle-working physicians, and I have to say, I am stunned by these doctors (you would be too). You might have an idea of what doctors are like, and this group of healers would bust every stereotype you could concoct. Not only are they brilliant, skillful, highly qualified experts; they are also intuitive, heartful, loving, spiritual, feminine, nurturing, trusting, sexy, creative, and brave as hell. If you were privileged enough to witness their transformations the way our team at the Institute witnessed them, you would tear up. That’s how beautiful they are.
I could gush forever, but instead, let me tell you a bit about these doctors, just in case any of you are wondering where you might find a doctor who has been trained in the 6 Steps To Healing Yourself, as spelled out in my book Mind Over Medicine. These heart-bursting physicians have learned and been certified in practicing the techniques intended to activate their patients’ superpowers as self-healers. They have also undergone a deep personal transformation, allowing themselves to be transmuted through this process personally so they are able not only to apply the best of what Western medicine has to offer; they are also prepared to work with patients at the level of spiritual healing. When physicians do the deep personal work to free themselves from the cage of the ego, they allow themselves to become vessels for Divine Love flowing through them, and this too facilitates miracles.
So . . . (drum roll please) . . . let me introduce you to some doctors I love and trust.
