Yesterday started out very much like any other day for me – praying in bed as I slowly woke up.

Still groggy from sleep, I got a call from a friend in Costa Rica.

A client there was having weird health issues and my friend – calling on her behalf – wanted to know what I thought was going on. 

It was about 7:24 in the morning EST Atlanta time.

“She’s dehydrated. Tell her to eat more often – she’s not eating enough. I can have a session with her about 5 o’clock,” I said yawning.

At 9 a.m. I had a session by Zoom from a client in another state recovering from COVID. He reported feeling immensely grateful as his friend – from whom he had caught the virus – was faring much worse.

10:30 worked out with a long-term client on Zoom.

12 noon went to the gym for my own workout.

1:30 ate my gluten-free tortilla with cheese. I am a terrible rut eater and don’t really want to give up my bad habit of any variation of cheese on toast, the lunch of champions.

At 2 p.m. my client in England started our session by reading a list of how she had felt just one year ago.

I’m not making this up. 

Here’s the abbreviated summary.

A year ago, she had:

Severe headaches so bad she had to sleep every night in a chair 

Blurred vision 

Fibromyalgia pain and arthritis

Mouth ulcers and swollen tongue

Diarrhea up to 25 times per day 


Severe weakness thighs feet to arms

If on floor couldn’t stand up

Had to go upstairs one leg at a time


Sleep apnea



Very high blood pressure  

Severe pain in back and abdomen

Nausea, feeling sick to stomach

Poor sleep 

Totally withdrawn from life

Severe difficulty breathing

Could barely breathe to get out of bed

Had to live under a massive fan due to excessive sweating 

Skin issues

Constant rashes

Severe itching 

Severe fatigue 

Weakness in the upper arms and legs


Found it hard to sit up without help

Couldn’t get up off floor if fell down

As of yesterday, she’s getting ready to go back to the gym as soon as the lock down in England opens back up. 

She had been back working out this summer but had to stop as a result of the second lock down of the year.

“I no longer think of myself as a sick person,” she told me.

She still has some bad days, still struggles with depression and still has a ways to go, but her life has already completely transformed.

Talk about a gratitude list – just to NOT feel any one of those symptoms would bring any spiritual being to her knees with praise of thanksgiving.

“Oh my God,” I said to her.

“The prisoners in Guantanamo Bay have it easy compared to what you went through.

“That was pure torture.

“You are so strong to have lived through that.”

So here is the point I’m taking my time getting around to.

Be the answer to someone else’s prayers.

Last night as I was talking to my boyfriend, I was discussing my obsession with making a difference.

Right now when I see the photographs or videos of the long lines of cars of people waiting to pick up at food banks, my first question to myself is, “What can I do to help right now?”

This year I have had the great privilege of giving away The Little Book of Breathwork to people in 17 countries. 

If you would like a FREE copy, just email me at And by all means please share this valuable information with everybody who needs it right now.

At least I could do a little something to help people breathe through coronavirus and cope with the tremendous anxiety and suffering the virus has caused around the globe.

Recently when I was teaching my evening yoga class on Zoom, I asked everyone to discuss the steps they had taken to cope with all the stress this year.

“Yoga,” was of course the first thing that rolled off each person’s lips.

I’ve been teaching yoga classes six times per week in 2020 and personally regard these classes as my mental health program. 

One student had a unique insight.

“I practice seeing the good in everything,” she said.

There has been so much suffering in 2020, so much illness, pain, loss and death, it can be easy to stay lost in the darkness.


Through this time we have to remember that we get through challenges in life only through the love, care, kindness, generosity of spirit and support of people around us.

If you look around and can’t figure out who can help at this challenging time, it would probably be you. 

Be the light.

Be the love.

Be the hope.

Be the kindness.

2020 has given us all a unique opportunity to give from our very soul.

Not just from our pocketbook.

Not just from our ego that wants to appear good.

Before all this suffering we may have forgotten how much of a difference we can make in the lives of others.

As the Bible says:

“For there will never cease to be poor in the land; that is why I am commanding you to open wide your hand to your brother and to the poor and needy in your land.”

Deuteronomy 15:11

What is healing? Healing happens when we see that we are the answer to someone else’s prayers.
