The Wounded Warrior

“Instead of seeing your past as it had wounded you, realize that it made you strong. Your battle scars are proof that no matter how hard life had become that you overcame it. You are a much stronger person today than you were yesterday. Use your past as a way to show people how to have courage for themselves. You are now a role model. You are not a victim.

We were not meant to go through all these challenges just to give up today. You are who you are; and you are as strong as you can be because of what happened to you in your past. The trials and tribulations could have broken you but they did not.

Instead your challenges created a much stronger person in you; and now you are the Wounded Warrior.”

After thirty years of teaching Inner City, Special Education students and forty-five years of metaphysical studies, I have decided to share my life's philosophical understandings on this wonderful website. For me, everything in my life has been a spiritual experience from being raised in an alcoholic household, to marriage and teaching, and finally caring for an Alzheimer parent. I have sought at least fifteen, personal psychic readings to try and assist me as a wife, teacher and caretaker. I want to share the wisdom that I have gained from following the valuable spiritual guidance from my inner knowing and from heeding the advise of channeled answers from trusted psychics. At almost 70 years old, I am writing, traveling and enjoying retirement in Florida.
