Healing and wellness have rarely strayed far from my mind since I became seriously ill with Crohn’s Disease back in adolescence…and I’m willing to bet, they’re important to you too.
No matter how you found your way here,
I hope you will open your heart to a story
about how the mission of
can light the path to recovery from illness,
bringing hope and transformation.
A theme in my personal history with illness
(Crohn’s, BRCA2+ genetic mutation, and anxiety)
is that I keep discovering healing
in unexpected places.
Like in my mother’s breast cancer.
Journeying with my mother
(battling breast cancer, colon cancer, melanoma,
osteoporosis, degenerative arthritis, and BRCA2+
genetic mutation) has inspired me to increasingly
let go and discover both a spaciousness
and an increased capacity to enjoy gratitude.
Her strength and perseverance as she battles
have taught me more than I can say about
the power of a healing spirit…
and the shelter of love when
the storm winds blow.
My mother’s pain and suffering,
and the crippling consequences of disease
to her daily living have healed and
transformed me in significant ways,
shifting my perspective and
shaping my desire.
My desire? To see with new eyes,
to grow in wisdom,
and to be aligned with healing
so much so
that my life becomes a healing
balm for others.
Speaking of a healing balm for others,
I am so grateful to discover and share with you
a new source for healing and hope called
A Healing Spirit.
Founder Carol Cassara’s passionate healing mission
is bound to move and inspire you.

Products to Help You Heal
A Healing Spirit offers tools to harness the power
of the mind-body connection,
rooted in current scientific research.
Three important tools are detailed here,
and be sure to browse the others on
this beautiful site.
While the tools do not replace treatment,
they support it by helping to
engage the connection between
mind and body.
Even if you have never journaled before,
I would encourage you to go for it!
It’s not simply a notebook full of blank pages;
it contains prompts designed to guide you
toward discovery and transformation.
The 5×7 beautifully-designed pink journal can be
brought along to treatment or to a quiet place
alone, to work through your deepest feelings
and thoughts about your diagnosis and journey.
Journaling makes a difference.
A study published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology,
found women with breast cancer who wrote about
their feelings had the fewest symptoms and
fewer unscheduled visits to their doctors.
After three months, the groups who kept
a journal about their emotions
“reported one-third fewer symptoms and
medical appointments than the group whose
writing was limited to the facts.” (source)
“The thing about a guided journal is you’re not
at a loss as to what to write about–you respond
to a question or do an activity.
Also, you can draw or paste
images instead of write.”
MY BODY AND MIND ARE HEALED,
WHOLE AND HEALTHY, WITHOUT PAIN.

My personal opinion?
These cards are powerful medicine.
The affirmation card deck is business card sized
and portable enough to slip in a pocket or purse
or store in a bedside table.
(I continue to keep them close to me and turn to them
for quiet moments of centering myself.)
I love how the cards beautifully
keep support for healing
right at your fingertips.
MIRACLES AND MAGIC SURROUND
ME EVERY MINUTE OF EVERY DAY.

Carol is masterful at integrated imagery, and
what comfort she offers to weary souls
in these downloads!
Downloadable audio of guided imagery
is designed for folks with cancer or chronic illness
to listen to at least once a day during chemo or at home.
The soothing audio delivers positive messages
about the immune system kicking in
to enhance healing.

Gift Someone With Healing Support
These healing products make thoughtful gifts
for loved ones, neighbors, employees, and
those who may feel too overwhelmed,
discouraged, or weak to order
While each product is effective on its own,
a set is even better.
For someone starting a course of chemo,
a supportive and thoughtful gift
might be the set trio: Healing Journal,
My parents visited this week, and we
spent some time at the Japanese Gardens,
where I shared the affirmation cards
from A Healing Spirit with my mom.
We are both moved by the
subtle healing energies which emerge from
the affirmations…the power of the
written word and neuroscientific
implications just never gets old!
The spoken word is also powerful,
and I think you’ll find
the guided imagery audio
speaks heart language.
Could you use some comfort just now
from A Healing Spirit for your
grief, journey with chronic illness, or anxiety?
Whatever brought you to this post today,
whatever affliction or physical challenge
lies before you…
I hope you know you are joined
and that an invitation for healing awaits.
May I ask a favor?
Can you help us spread the word
about this new source of support by
simply pinning images from this post

encouragement and help?
