Holidays: A Time For Miracles And Booksignings

December 1, 2012 · Filed Under Creating Miracles, The Power of Love · Comment 

A Thanksgiving Miracle

Anna* (a pseudonym) wrote to me at Thanksgiving, sharing a beautiful story of how her recently deceased husband found a creative way to say "Hello" and "I love you." Briefly, Anna explained that she had deeply missed and grieved for her husband over the holiday weekend, especially because the holiday was also his birthday. Feeling particularly heartbroken, she shed many tears as she visited his gravesite at the cemetery.

When she awoke the following morning, she walked into the hallway of her home where her precious dog, Jenny*, was asleep on the floor. In her words, "Low and behold, she had a white feather on the top of her front leg. Oh my God! I ran to get my camera, took the picture which shows an orb with three circles within the long strand (of the orb). Of course, I really started crying then, but what an amazing gift for me!" Feathers have become one of the primary ways her husband communicates his presence to her; this was particularly meaningful and miraculous for Anna.

Anna’s story helped her feel better and had a healing effect. Her story is similar to those in both Touched by the Extraordinary: Books One and Two. I feel that if it helped her heal, it can help you, as well.


 

ANNOUNCING 2 HOLIDAY BOOKSIGNINGS 
AT BARNES & NOBLE  

210 Commerce Blvd., Fairless Hills, PA 19030

I will be signing copies of Touched by the Extraordinary:
Books One and Two

I will also be offering a special gift of one of my CDs as my way of saying
"Thank you" from my heart for your purchase.

The CD can also be given as a holiday gift, if you so choose.


A PERSONAL NOTE: Each year, thanks to your ongoing belief in the healing value of Touched by the Extraordinary: Books One and Two, you have spread the word and encouraged those who are seeking hope to read either or both of the Touched by the Extraordinary books.

Born out of the stories of miracles you and so many patients, friends and others have shared with me, Touched by the Extraordinary Books One and Two have provided hope, comfort and inspiration to those of you who personally are — or have loved ones who are challenged by illness, loss and trauma.

Each Chanukah and Christmas, I experience the joy of knowing, thanks to the wonderful feedback I have received, that there are many whose pain and suffering are in some way being mitigated by reading or listening to the extraordinary stories that have helped my patients and so many others heal emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

Please consider letting those who are dealing with any kind of loss or illness know about these special dates at Barnes & Noble, so that I might sign books for them, as well as for them to give as special uplifting gifts for the holidays.

*I will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of both books to The Healing Consciousness Foundation, created by breast cancer surgeon, Dr. Beth DuPree, to provide complementary services to women challenged by breast cancer.

I look forward to meeting and speaking with you in person.

In the meantime, may each day be one of joy and peace for you and your loved ones.

Blessings of Peace, Love & Miracles,

Susan Apollon

Miracle of Giving

Bliss & Making New Year Miracles On WNBC Today In New York

January 14, 2010 · Filed Under Everything Is Energy, The Power of Intention · Comment 

The invitation came unexpectedly just a few days before the New Year. Could I come to New York and speak about “How to Set and Keep New Year’s Resolutions and Intentions”? While there was little time to prepare, I knew that this would be a great opportunity to share with everyone what I have been living and teaching patients in my practice. Making miracles (Creating and Keeping New Year’s Resolutions) is really all about energy – and positive, loving energy, at that!

View videos on NBC: http://www.nbcnewyork.com/video.

We arrived at Rockefeller Center early. After going through security, we headed up to the 7th floor for the interview. The studio is huge, pleasant and filled with desks, chairs, television monitors of all major shows being broadcasted at the same time.

I had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with several of the producers and stage-staff – all down to earth and so very kind. While waiting for my turn to be interviewed, one of the producers, Li Jing, helped me with getting a cup of coffee and enabling me to relax a bit as we talked about what led up to the production of Touched by the Extraordinary.

The anchor who interviewed me, Pat Battle, was wonderful. We hit it off immediately. Pat is high energy, positive, has a great smile, radiates feel-good energy and is absolutely lovely. I felt blessed to have such a super, supportive team around me as we prepared for our segment. Having my family there, just a few feet away also helped me feel even more comfortable.

And, then, we were on. The segment literally flew by. I worked to convey as much of the material I had prepared. I was told my enthusiasm was felt by those present and that they especially valued some of the tools I had spoken of, including my ABC technique and three question journaling method. I was genuinely moved by their warm response.

What fun this was and what a great way to begin the New Year!

May we all be blessed with a New Year filled with Laughter, Peace and Much Love.

The Healing Power Of Opening To The Extraordinary (Part Three)

October 19, 2008 · Filed Under Healing Wisdom · 1 Comment 

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.”   Albert Einstein

Much of what makes life so wonderful, so delicious and so meaningful is related or connected to that which we can’t see, touch or feel, sometimes called the mysterious or the extraordinary, as well as to events we call synchronicities. So often, what is considered by some to possibly be a coincidence is considered by others to be a “synchronicity.” Specifically, “synchronicity” refers to events which you might think are coincidences, but which, in your heart and your whole being, you know are too meaningful to have occurred simultaneously, by chance.

Touched by the Extraordinary, a book I wrote and published in 2004, delves into the nature of extraordinary events and demonstrates that when you fill with love and compassion and open your heart to such experiences, it can lead to transformation and healing in your life. Originally written to help heal my patients who were dealing with the loss of a loved one, I expanded the intention of the book to enable you to know that when you harness your intuition and fill with love, you are more apt to experience a wide variety of remarkable or extraordinary events, all of which have the power to help you heal.

The following paragraphs include the kinds of situations which are often considered “mysterious” or “extraordinary.” Many refer to these as “signs,” implying that the event is especially meaningful and personal. When these signs occur, especially after they are requested, they tend to expedite the healing process. In fact, many of my patients who are deeply grieving the death of a loved one, share with me that receiving “signs” from them helps to ease their pain, as well as giving them hope that their loved ones are still with them, though in a different way. They often find this to be extremely comforting.

Such powerful events may include the following experiences in your life: wonderful synchronicities such as your intuition and precognition informing you someone is going to be calling or entering your life within hours, which is exactly what takes place; dreams in which you feel you have engaged in meaningful visits or communication with deceased loved ones or had an intuitive knowing and description of events about to happen; times when you have prayed and then clearly experienced answers to your prayers, including stunning healings.

Other types of “extraordinary encounters” include: hearing a voice which provides a message that saves your life (because you choose to listen to it); feeling the presence of a loved one who has died or experiencing their presence via electric lights and devices being turned on, ringing or blinking, as well as by smelling their favorite flowers, cigarettes, cigars, perfume or coffee (if they were big coffee drinkers).

Additionally, many have shared with me “extraordinary events” which have included seeing (having visions of) or experiencing angels, Masters, and deceased loved ones; also, having near-death experiences; noticing the frequent or atypical appearance of animals, butterflies, dragonflies or birds (such as an eagle, owl or cardinal) which were especially meaningful to a loved one who has died.

The Healing Power Of Opening To The Extraordinary (Part Two)

October 5, 2008 · Filed Under Healing Wisdom · 1 Comment 

“Through his or her intuition, the multisensory human comes to understand and to experience truth consciously.” Gary Zukav

You are blessed to live your life with the following four major inherent powers, natural resources or gifts: your Consciousness, sometimes called Mind; your intuition; your ability to use your imagination, and your breath. With these, you have the power to expedite your healing.

Mind is so much more than the physical matter we call your brain. Mind is that part of you which enables you to connect with everyone and everything anywhere in the Universe. This is as impressive as it sounds. I like to think that we are always tapping into a huge field of mind energy, reworking what we take, adding to it and returning it back into the Field, causing it to expand even more.

Your intuition is your own inherent resource that enables you to know everything you need to know. This can be considered a WOW factor! You were born with a Knowing that has nothing to do with the rational mind or with your studies. This Knowing, sometimes called your sixth sense, is stored in every cell of your body, including your brain, your memories and your dreams. It represents your connection with your Higher Wisdom or the Wisdom of your Soul, or God or whatever you choose to call your source. Such Knowing guides you to do what you need to do for balance and wholeness.. The key is whether you choose to acknowledge and listen to this powerful wisdom. If you do, there can be healing.

Your imagination is an enormous resource for you because it allows you to create and manifest your reality (which may seem quite extraordinary before it becomes your reality). This is how Walt Disney created Disneyland! He imagined it with great passion and enthusiasm, just as you do with your dreams, and this led to his dream being fulfilled. I teach patients how to harness their imagination, via the use of imagery, to creatively come up with images to destroy unwanted cancer cells and contribute to healing, as well as to improve their chemotherapy experience. You can do this, as well.

Finally, your breath is a wondrous gift; in that, when you learn the art of focusing on your breath, you can become the master of you! This occurs when you learn to pay attention to your in-breath and out-breath and the path it takes as it enters and flows through you. When you do this, you have the ability to create relaxation and calm within the workings of your entire being.

There are two huge healing benefits of learning to harness the extraordinary gift of your breath. First, you are producing needed chemicals which enhance the working of your immune system and which restore you to balance and harmony. And, second, you are raising your energetic vibrations so that you are more apt to receive needed wisdom from your Higher Self which can also guide you to healing.
All of this makes you quite extraordinary! Yet, these natural resources enable you to also easily access the “extraordinary” or remarkable aspects of life, and, in doing this, you also enhance your ability to heal. So, what are these “extraordinary” aspects which bring you closer to restoring your own inner harmony, balance and wholeness? (TO BE CONTINUED)

Lessons Learned From Grief And Trauma (Part 3)

August 25, 2008 · Filed Under Healing Wisdom, The Power of Love · 1 Comment 

8. The pain of a loss or trauma is locked into your cells. Healing requires that you balance your pain with thoughts of a lighter energy. Give yourself permission to focus on what makes you laugh, even if you do not feel like laughing! Balance your pain with time to watch a comedy or time to meet and be with friends (push yourself if you feel you can’t or don’t want to do this). By doing this, you are helping you immune system recover and be able to better protect you from the aftermath of your loss or trauma.

9. With grief and trauma, often come an outpouring of expressions of care, compassion, kindness, love, and prayers. Allow yourself to be deeply touched by such a showering of love. This can forever transform you so that you become more aware of the choice you can make to be equally caring, loving and kind. You may find that you are becoming aware, also, of the power of your own love, appreciation and gratitude for your blessings. Take time to express your heartfelt thanks. This, too, expedites your healing process.

For example, patients and friends have frequently shared with me how moved they are when they are ill and another close and dear friend who just sustained the loss of a loved one calls to see how they are doing. When you step out of your own pain and are present for another in pain, you heal yourself and contribute to the healing of others.

“We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same.” Carlos Castaneda
