Finding Gifts In The Most Challenging Times

gratitude Jun 21, 2022

My number one place to be and the reason I’m here on this planet besides serving humanity is being a mom – it’s such an honor. My kids are my soul family!

My family has been going through challenges the past few weeks, navigating Sasha’s illness. I believe it’s my nature to look for gifts in every situation, so I wanted to share a few gifts I’ve found during this difficult time. My affirmation has been, “the gift is in the challenges!”



Update On Sasha

For those of you that don’t know, my oldest son, Sasha, was diagnosed with a severe case of Ulcerative Colitis. He didn’t realize how bad his condition was until he went to the emergency room. He hadn’t had an appetite for a while, had lost over 50 pounds, and was in such agonizing pain he was put on a morphine drip.

Sasha has been living on his own for the last five years, serving in the Coast Guard at a Naval base in Georgia. We finally got him home so he can heal surrounded by family and love. For the first week, he was in the hospital and I sat with him in silence every day because he had no energy to speak.

I am so grateful to have him home so I can be by his side and cook him three nourishing meals a day. He is finally getting his appetite back and has the best care. He has regained his energy to talk and the gifts of our conversations are simply beyond my wildest dreams.



Gifts I’ve Found During Challenging Times

  • First, I want to say thank you all for your love and prayers for Sasha. Having a beautiful soul family community is such a gift! Your love and support mean the world to me. You are all part of our family and we truly appreciate you.
  • I have four children and to see everyone together supporting their brother during this difficult time is so beautiful. It’s such a blessing for everyone to be together. Seeing Sasha’s younger siblings give, serve, nurture, support, and listen has been an amazing gift. It’s as if the universe gave us all an opportunity to rise in love and appreciate each other even more.

  • I’m grateful for the self-awareness I’ve developed of my stress coping response. My tendency has been to overwork and overdo, leading to crashing my body. Luckily, I caught it in time and cared for myself with acupuncture, meditation, vitamin IV infusions, and the Life Force Machine. Self-awareness is a gift!
  • Sasha is an ancient wise soul who incarnated with so much deep wisdom and perception of our reality. He is able to tune in and just pinpoint all that is not in harmony in the most eloquent way – a true Master incarnate. The other night, he asked me why I’m doing something at all times and if I would give myself time to just lay on the couch and have a conversation. The gift in this situation is learning to be more present in the now!
  • The final gift I’ll highlight, although I’m sure there will be more to come, is the opportunity to truly express Deep Love through honoring and loving another human being unconditionally. Love is a state of being – the ability to give it and to open your heart to receive it. My cup is definitely fulfilled with Love. Love truly is the guiding force of the universe! I am here for all of it.

I want to encourage each and every one of you to reach out to your loved ones because ultimately, love is what heals all. Take time to reflect and ask yourself: what kind of coping mechanisms do you tend to rely on during challenging times? How can you treat yourself with compassion? What is the gift, or perhaps several gifts, that were revealed to you during the challenges? 

Please share with me if you feel it deep inside!
