A Husbands Alzheimer’s Journey and Caregiver’s Guide

A Husbands Alzheimer’s Journey and Caregiver’s Guide

None of us will be immune from the ever-growing presence of the conditions known as dementia or Alzheimer’s. In 2015, There were an estimated 46.8 million people worldwide living with dementia which will reach 74.7 million in 2030- Link

The causes of this condition are unknown. What is clear however is that the impact on individual’s, families and community is enormous.

Front Cover October 1Our friend Don Cramer, in his book
Where’s Whitney Now -A Husband’s Alzheimer’s journey and Caregiver’s Guide has written a personal account describing his and Whitney’s mutual evolution and offers caregivers everywhere valuable guidance.

This compelling story is a fascinating read: sobering, and ultimately transformative written with clarity, good humor and love..

Don’s account of their collective evolution is essential reading because it shatters myths about what this condition really is and whom it affects.

Don and Whitney were meditators who lived a very healthy lifestyle. He was successful in the business world and she was a well-known teacher in the San Diego area. When Whitney suddenly slipped beyond Don’s ability to manage her care, it required an immediate, gut-wrenching move to San Miguel de Allende in central Mexico where we have witnessed first hand this amazing story.

As one reviewer writes:

Anyone who is a caregiver or who knows a caregiver should really read this. It would also be helpful for anyone recently diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s to help them understand what may be ahead and how to deal with it.”

We agree.

Here’s the link on Amazon to the book.

Please share this book with anyone you know who might benefit be they recently diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s or is a caregiver.

Having navigated illness with many clients and their loved ones and caregivers, we know this book is a vital gift.

Love,

Susan and David

Give Your Seeking a Rest

Tools for Thriving

This blog starts a new series for 2016 on Tools for Thriving. We are bringing forth blessings from our allies to assist each of us to connect to the fountain of life and vitality that surrounds us all the time.

Give Your Seeking a Rest

Why is it that so often we don’t achieve the New Year’s resolutions we make at the beginning of each year?

It’s because our resolutions are often veiled demands on ourselves and the world around us. When we demand we stop the flow of life.

We are trained to take ourselves away from the rich mystery we actually live in. We think and believe in ways that block us from living and expressing from our deepest heartfelt desires.

What if some of our processes of affirmation, like meditation, yoga or prayers are getting in the way of thriving?

Sometimes even though a process seems so good, it’s actually a form of demanding on life.

The primary thriving tool we have found is that acceptance is the first law of spirit.

If we don’t accept what’s so, we create turbulence that keeps us stuck. We’ve all developed clever tools that hide our habit of demanding.

Ask yourself, “Am I in a place of acceptance or am I requiring that what is so be different?”

The only difference we can create is in how we perceive. From a clear point of perception we can take actions that can nurse greater ease, clarity and love.

A perception based on acceptance opens us to a battery of creativity in the life that is all around us and allows for real change, real evolution- Transformation not just stimulation.

Use this blessing as an invocation, a daily reminder, to let go of ideas that have tried to comfort us but actually hold us back from the very things we want and need.

 

Blessing- Give Your Seeking a Rest

This blessing is from our allies the Archangel Michael and the Christ Consciousness.

You have been trained to believe that what you think is darkness is the absence of light. So much of what you sense as darkness is in fact filled and vibrating with a radiance of light.

In the days before you, know this, there is a rain of guidance showering down upon you. If you give your seeking a rest, this fervent guidance will touch your mind, your heart and your body.

You have been trained to believe you are separate from the vast aliveness that life is, that you are. It is time now to end that illusion.

Before each of you is a fountain of life and vitality. You can be nourished in ways you long for by trusting that at times you will be afraid and other times you will have unbridled joy. Sometimes you may want to die. Sometimes you will want to fly.

Your life is a spectrum of experiences designed to grow you as a soul, an eternal being.  We hold you in a resting pose invite you into the wild mystery that life is.

Now is the time for you to feel and know your unmistakable connection to the web of life that you are part of on this planet and to all the life that is beyond earth.

Yes- we are asking you to trust in ways you have not before because you are ready to.

How, you may ask?

When you feel yourself grasping, seeking the answer you believe you must have, STOP. Bring everything around you to a full stop. Notice in the stopping the stillness.

We your beloveds will meet you every time and usher forth to you the knowing that you need to reclaim your thriving no matter what the circumstances.

There is thriving in joy.
There is thriving even in sorrow.
There is thriving unto death.
Thriving is what you are, remember.

 

Brought forth in Love,
from David and Susan

Discounted Initial Session with Wisdom Rx **

Perhaps it’s the time of the world, the flux of the planets or the impassioned desire that we all seem to have to go past what’s been limiting us. One client shares how we all can learn, grow and really heal.

David and Susan work together to gather clear insights about the physical body, plus mental, emotional and spiritual levels as well. They uncover hidden aspects ready to be healed, and create a loving space to integrate those lost or alienated parts of myself.

In session, there are no limits to the healing energies present. And in the purity and compassion of their healing presence, I feel able to relax completely and open myself to the deepest level of healing possible. A session with David and Susan is an opportunity for transformation.

Yearning for Sacred Integrity?

Do you feel as if much of your life is filled with activities that don’t match the depths of your true nature?

Are there times when you feel as if you have walked away from yourself and towards something that was not true?

During our journey this summer in the US and Canada and now back home in Mexico we continue to notice that many of us are yearning to live more impeccably in our own sacred integrity.

 

Recently a client broke away from the habitual expressions that were holding her back:

“I decided to work with David and Susan due to constant pain in my hip that had appeared 10 months prior.  I previously sought out two doctors, stretching and physical therapy and nothing seemed to work.I would have to say that I got so much more than I anticipated in my work with Wisdom Rx. I had a team cheering me on, pointing out my brilliance, supporting me in big decisions and offering their unconditional love, every step of the way 

I learned a new way of seeing and will continue to challenge my perception of things moving forward.  And I learned to honor so much more of myself, my process and my life through their guidance.

Early in our work, I asked for “more movement”. Within a month my life totally changed and I am now creating a new business.  I am steeped in excitement and positivity having let go of fear in a very big and life-changing way.  David and Susan helped support that transition and my way of viewing myself in the world.  And my hip pain totally disappeared with that transition.”  J.M. New Jersey

In listening to the wisest part of our being we can ask for direction, information and new understanding in all aspects of our lives.

Our friend, Leo Sofer** the intuitive storyteller, that we introduced you to this spring wrote:

“So much of our modern existence keeps us busy with things that do not bear any relationship to our depths. So we slowly lose touch with the one thing that we yearn for more than anything else.”

In a beautiful audio story with music, he tells a story called Queen of the Sea based on the work of Wisdom Rx. It is a story that gets to the heart and soul of the experiences our client expressed.

We want to share his blog and audio story so you can feel your sacred integrity reflected in it. We hope it will help you connect more to your own true nature.

Take a half hour and feel yourself as never before.

Juicy Truths From Our Journey 2015

We’re back at home in San Miguel de Allende in Mexico integrating the many gifts we received on our summer journey. It was rich with family, new friends and reconnections and the spirit of the land all enveloped us.

We started in Chicago for the memorial gathering for Susan’s father. Honor and love abounded. Each place we visited taught us something about ourselves, community, love and the state of the world.

Between our own learning and the many sessions we did along the way, we want to share some of the juicy truths and common threads that are showing up.

They are great examples of the wisdom that is emerging and how we can support ourselves and one another as we learn, grow and heal.

Radio Interview with David Mackenzie

The World of a Medical Intuitive- Radio Interview with David MacKenzie

We met Dr. Emmett Miller and his wife Sandy in San Miguel de Allende Mexico a few months ago.  What we liked about them was that they were each dedicated to self-healing, wellness, success, and global transformation. David Mackenzie

And to our surprise, we didn’t know that Emmett had a radio program. He interviewed David on his show Conversations with Extraordinary People.

David talks about his background and valuable lessons we have learned from all those we’ve worked with.

They had a lot of fun exploring together.

Here’s the link:

The Queen of the Sea- A Healing Journey

We have a treasure we want to share with you.

Leo and Lara April 2015, smaller (1)

Leo and his daughter

A dear friend and colleague Leo Sofer is an Intuitive story teller at Stories for the Journey Home. He’s been telling stories since 1989 and has developed Intuitive Storytelling as a way of accessing our inherent wisdom and expressing it in story form.

We asked him to reflect us to us-
Something we do for our clients.

We felt we had outgrown the way we understood the essence of the work we do within Wisdom Rx. We knew we desperately needed someone to reflect to us the strength and essence of who we have been and who we are becoming. Leo brilliantly provided us with The Queen of the Sea- A Healing Journey.

Unavoidable Beauty

When something catches our eyes, we are stopping to inhale the wonder before us. These life giving moment of unavoidable beauty are deeply nurturing. We share them with you so you can see some of the treasures of the journey so far.
