And now here is my secret,
a very simple secret: It is only with the heart
that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
The lessons we learn are ongoing in this spiral called life. And the path is clear where you are-only in the present can you see. Only in the present can you manifest the future to unfold. And only in the present can you forgive yourself and others of the past.
Be Present. That is the present, the gift. LifePath is the birth of that journey- a journey inward of living consciously in grace.
At the Oracle of Delphi two sayings are inscribed, Know Thyself and Moderation in All Things. My life's work is to follow these two instructions by inspiring others to find their inner sanctuary for healing and rejuvenation.
My message to you is, you are already divine and worthy of grace. say yes. Say yes to Grace.
My Story starts on June 4th:
On June 4th, 2019 at 9:00am I was teaching yoga at a rehab center and while in Downward Dog I felt a sharp searing pain pierce through my skull. I thought someone had shot the back of my head off.
At that moment I felt a warm sensation welling up from the pit of my stomach and I saw a flower opening, so many colors and sounds and while I was processing the pain and the flower and the colors this presence, this warm all-knowing, all-loving presence enveloped me and pushed me to the right side of my brain.
From this safe place I saw and heard my body speak and move through the motions of the class and reach out and grab a book in my bag and read a meditation from the book. This presence was the Holy Spirit. taking over my body, using my vocal chords this presence taught the rest of the class -even reaching into my bag to grab my book, The Four Tenets of Love and read from pages 34 and 35 entitled, “Let Love Be Your First Language.”
After the class a student said, “What an amazing class” and was about to say something else but I interrupted him with, “I’m sorry but I have to go to the bathroom NOW.” I went to the bathroom, looked in the mirror and didn’t recognize myself in the mirror. The blood was pounding like a deafening roar. I knew I was in danger and yet there was a calmness I have never felt before. For the first time in my life I knew I was not alone.
I texted my boss that I wasn’t going to do the next class and that I thought I may have to go to the hospital. My boss urged me to go upstairs to be assessed by our acupuncturist, John. With the pain searing through my body I felt a hand thread through my fingers and guide me to the elevator. I saw my hand move towards the buttons but I couldn’t feel my hands or feel any other sensations.
When I got to John he had me lie on a table and he started placing the needles in various places on my body all while asking what sensations I felt. I felt nothing. John’s voice was going in and out and I felt like I was losing consciousness and hearing and seeing. He was standing at the foot of the table by my feet. I looked over at him and behind him appeared my dead husband (he died the day after Christmas 2013 of a massive heart attack in his sleep). And he said, “Juliette, listen to me very carefully. It’s not your time but it is very very serious. You need to listen to me. You cannot make our children orphans. You need to call 911. You need to tell John that what ever his intuition is telling him is right. Tell him now.” And with that he evaporated.
I looked at John and said whatever you’re thinking is right. He immediately walked me downstairs to the nurses station and they took my vitals. Blood pressure high. And then I saw that he passed a post it note to the nurse with three A’s and she looked at him and said no way is it an abdominal aortic aneurism. He took me to another room, the relaxation room to well relax and then he went upstairs to grab my belongings. While he was gone a physical therapist was with me and she asked can I do anything to help you and I said. Call 911.
The Tequesta Fire and Rescue came and brought me to Jupiter Medical where I was given a CT Scan confirming what I already knew. I had suffered a cerebral aneurysm and a subarachnoid hemorrhage on the left side of my brain and I had another aneurysm on the right side of my brain. The doctors and nurses were shocked that I was fully functional, talking, moving, and fully in command of my faculties. What they didn’t know is that I was tucked into a flower blanketed/shielded from it all, observing everything but I was not in charge…the Holy Spirit was.
I was transported to JFK Medical that same day and the next day they placed 5 platinum coils in the left side of my brain. I was in the Neuro ICU and on the 8th of June I was moved to the Neuro unit and suffered a stroke and had to be moved back to Neuro ICU where I stayed until July 2, 2019.
My life has changed forever. I am no longer the person I was before. I don’t think like her, talk like her or even have the same mannerisms as her. If I can impart anything to you its that you are never alone. You are divine already, and the Holy Spirit resides inside of you and is waiting for you to receive Her grace.
Juliette had her second aneurysm surgery on September 16th and is recovering at home. They placed two stents and three coils on the right side of her brain. She can walk slowly and is in gratitude each and every day she is alive. She believe life is a blessing and thanks God every day for the day. Her work is not done. Praise be to God.
