By Niki Elliott, PhD

After years of exploring her own intuitive gifts and specializing in energy balancing for intuitive adults and children, author Niki Elliott, PhD shares the techniques that have helped her and her intuitive clients survive and thrive. If you think you may be (or know you are) an empath, intuitive or highly sensitive person, I Feel Your Pain is a message of hope and empowerment. Learn how to stop absorbing the pain of others, take control of your gifts, and successfully integrate your intuitive gifts into your work and your life.

In the past, if someone told you, “I feel your pain,” you probably felt you were being heard and understood by a person who connected with you and cared about your suffering. But when I tell you that I feel your pain, I mean that I literally can feel your physical and emotional pain inside my body as if it were my own. At least, I used to—before I learned what it means to be an intuitive empath.

This may be true for you, too. You may feel people’s pains and emotions as though they were part of your own physical experience. Perhaps you intuitively see images, hear sounds, or know thoughts or information that other people don’t access. You may be highly sensitive to energy and the environment around you. Whatever your unique expression of intuition or energetic sensitivity is (and every individual is different), your gift comes with a special set of challenges and benefits. After years of exploring my own intuitive gifts and specializing in energy balancing for intuitive adults and children, I wrote this book to share the techniques that have helped me, and my intuitive clients, to overcome the challenges and to thrive by using their intuitive abilities with intention and discernment.

I believe we need to consider empathic overload as a viable part of assessing every aspect of wellness, including mood, learning, behavior, and physical health. Some energy healing specialists believe that the majority of emotional, mental, and physical ailments are actually rooted in energetic imbalances.

We are all connected, and everything and everyone leaves an imprint on our energy field. In fact, our interconnectedness is the core of who we are. If you are intuitive or energetically sensitive, you are more likely than most to be challenged by empathically blending with people and your environment, which is essentially taking on or absorbing other people’s pain, joys, excitement, and fears.

Unfortunately, we are not taught to take care of ourselves energetically.

We understand the need for good physical hygiene. We shower, wash our hands, and brush our teeth. But we aren’t taught that as energetic beings we have an energy body that requires as much care and attention as our physical body does.

When we become aware of our intuitive nature and our energetic body, we can learn how to cultivate our gifts, practice energetic wellness, and thrive. That’s when we are able to fully shine our unique passion, talents, and genius on the planet.

Imagine if every human being were able to fully utilize his or her intuitive potential! What would the world be like if we received training in the appropriate and balanced use of intuitive gifts? How many of our global problems could be solved, bringing us closer to experiencing heaven on earth? What would our world be like if we intuitively knew the truth of who we are and what we need? How would our personal and international relations be improved if we lived and acted from our intuitive awareness of the highest truths, rather than getting caught up in fears, worries, and drama from the media or from others around us?

Imagine how our schools would be different if we taught our children to engage their intuition as part of the learning process. Picture how our health care system would be different if we included intuition as part of the process for patients and practitioners. Even our family lives would be dramatically altered if we honored and cultivated intuitive wisdom at home.

If you were fully “you” and maximized all your intuitive gifts and talents, how would you be different? How would your world be different?

If you think you may be (or know you are) an empath, intuitive, or energetically sensitive person, I Feel Your Pain is a message of hope and empowerment. You are not broken. You are gifted and you can learn to take control of your gifts and your life. If you are a minister, doctor, nurse, coach, therapist, teacher, or other helping professional, you will learn to stop absorbing the pain of others and integrate a new intuitive dimension into your work.

Your intuition is a powerful—perhaps the most powerful—part of you. Isn’t it time you got to know it better?


I wrote I Feel Your Pain to bring mainstream awareness to the unique needs of spiritual gifted individuals whose mood, learning, behavior and health challenges are deeply rooted in the energetic overload they experience on a daily basis.

Life as an intuitive empath can be challenging at best, debilitating at worst. There are no roadmaps and little guidance or support available for those who are blessed (though feeling cursed) with the ability to embody or absorb others’ physical and emotional pain. This story of my personal journey toward energetic balance and integration has become a message of empowerment that has transformed the lives of thousands of empathic children and adults. I Feel Your Pain: A 7-Step Survival Guide for Empaths, Intuitives and Highly Sensitive People serves as a bridge that helps others cross over from a life of empathic pain to a full, healthy expression of their intuitive power.

Awakenings from the Light: 12 Life Lessons from a Near Death Experience, Author Nancy Rynes

featured-writer-seal1Awakenings from the Light: 12 Life Lessons from a Near Death Experience, Author Nancy Rynes

Nancy Book_Nancy Rynes was riding her bicycle when a large SUV approached. The vehicle’s driver, absorbed in texting while driving, plowed right into Rynes. Suffering from severe spinal and head injuries, Rynes knew she was dying. At that moment, she underwent the first of two life-changing near-death experiences—her consciousness split between her frightened, injured self laying on the road, and an impartial, peaceful observer-consciousness who watched as first responders fought to keep her alive. Her second, more lengthy near-death experience came days later, during the surgery that attempted to repair her traumatized spine.

Rynes, a scientist and confirmed skeptic, was shown the wonders of Heaven, experiencing joy, love, and beauty on such a grand scale that she wept at its magnitude. She then met and spoke with a Being who gave her insights into life, love, and the wonders of Spirit. After her tour of Heaven, she was returned to her body to begin the long, slow process of recovering from injuries her surgeon affirms should have killed her.

In Awakenings from the Light, Rynes recounts the amazing sights of Heaven, and explains the remarkable insights into life she returned with to share with others. She was gifted with a second chance—a precious opportunity to bring a little bit of Heaven into her life on Earth. The wisdom she passes on could well change your life as well.

“You have expressed your story so clearly, and positively that I can feel that love floating off the page. Bless you. “ Richard V.

“Nancy, thank you for sharing this. I have heard a number of NDEs before but have believed none to this point primarily because they were told by attention seekers. I don’t believe that is the case here. I’ve never heard it explained so well…Thank you for bolstering my faith.” Lou B.

Nancy Rynes’ friends call her “the atheist who went to Heaven.” While Nancy started out her education as an artist, she went on to earn a degree in geology. The sciences taught her to base her views on things she could measure, and since spiritual matters were not measurable, for her they did not exist. The skepticism remained until January of 2014, when Spirit gave her a wake-up call in the form of a traumatic accident and near-death experience (NDE). Since her NDE, her life has changed drastically and she now writes books and teaches about the Divine, what happens when we die, and how we can bring a little bit of Heaven to our lives on Earth. Nancy is also an award-winning artist, represented in galleries across the western USA. For more about Nancy, her books, and art, please visit: http://NancyRynes.com


One afternoon in early 2014, I was wheeled into an operating room so that surgeons could fix part of my spine that was shattered as a result of a traumatic accident. I was a staunch atheist going in to that surgery. When I finally came out a few hours later, my viewpoint had completely shifted. I had died on the operating table and my soul had begun its journey to heaven. During my near-death experience (NDE), I was gifted with so much Divine love, incredible beauty, and given so many spiritual teachings that I could no longer deny the existence of a Higher Power. I immediately began to write down everything I had experienced during my experience so that I could bring heaven’s wisdom into my own life. But Spirit’s teachings seemed to take on a life of their own. Friends requested that I make them available to a wider audience, so I posted a brief version on my blog (www.TheSpiritWay.Blogspot.com ). Soon, I realized that there was *so* much I wanted to tell people about heaven, Spirit, and Divine love, that I decided to put it all together in one place. “Awakenings from the Light” documents my change from atheist to believer, and gives you ways that you can begin to bring some of heaven’s wisdom into your own life. My hope is that we all work together to bring a little bit of heaven’s grace into our time here on earth.

featured-writer-seal1Psychology and the Near-Death Experience: Searching for God Author Roy L. Hill

Roy Hill Book_Near-death experiences tantalize the public’s interest in what lies beyond the final human breath. Answers have been streaming by the thousands during the last few decades from people who have had them. However, grand designs can only be splendidly revealed by connecting thousands of NDE accounts like a jigsaw puzzle. In his groundbreaking book, “Psychology and the Near-Death Experience,” Roy L. Hill roughly sketches God’s canvas by integrating hundreds of NDE testimonies within the context of human psychology. As an inquisitive psychologist with strong spiritual roots, Roy’s book uniquely mixes academic curiosity with a deep reverence for the sacred. The reader can expect exposure to profound spiritual insights throughout the book. Systems of meaning will be challenged, new purpose will be defined, and the nature of self will be primed for discovery. In this manner, “Psychology and the Near-Death Experience” may aid the spiritual explorer in their search for God.

Roy L. Hill obtained his bachelor’s degree in psychology at the University of Arizona and his doctorate degree in clinical psychology at Nova Southeastern University. He has worked as a psychologist in corrections, both as a clinician and supervisor, for over 19 years. Following several life changing experiences, Roy delved into the topic of Near Death Experiences. A book followed his immersion, Psychology and the Near Death Experience: Searching For God, published by White Crow Books. As his mission and passion, Roy looks forward to writing more on various near death experience subjects. Roy lives in Colorado with his wife and son.  http://www.neardeathexppsy.com/


I have worked as a clinical psychologist for twenty years in several prisons.  One day, about twelve years ago, I learned that an inmate’s sister had died as a result of an automobile accident.  I placed the on suicide watch after he endorsed voices telling him to kill himself.  On the second day, the inmate stated that his depression and suicidal ideation had disappeared.  The inmate stated that his deceased sister was freely talking to him.  Specifically, the sister informed him that she now existed in a better place and that he should not be grieving for her on suicide watch but living with purpose.  Normally, I would be cautious.  However, I also knew that auditory hallucinations, especially from depressed patients, are cryptic and negative.  I had yet to meet any psychotic person who experienced comforting or helpful voices.  I made the call to take the inmate off suicide watch on the condition that I would see him early the next morning.

The next morning, I asked the inmate if his deceased sister was still talking to him.  He answered, “Yes.  She is telling me that you do not believe me.  And so that you shall believe, she has a message for you.”

With some trepidation, I gingerly asked, “What is her message?”

He answered, “Quarter, the coin.”

The inmate left.   About fifteen minutes later another inmate came to see me on a scheduled appointment.   Ranting about the hypocrisy of the United States government, he offered this challenge, “Do you know what is written on a quarter?!”

I immediately answered without thinking, “In God We Trust”.

The inmate pointed a finger at me and said with authority, “That’s right!”

I immediately felt blood rush down from my head.  The temporal occurrence of the “quarter” revelation could not be a coincidence – no one had asked me that question before.  The next day I talked to the first inmate and asked him whether his sister revealed more information.  He said, “Yes.  She said that your wife is pregnant, you will have a son, and he will be born on Christmas day.”   Indeed, the first points I knew were true.   But would my son be born on Christmas day?  Christmas day came and went without a birth; my son was born on January 7th.  For the next eleven years I was troubled at this inconsistency.   Then it came to me that my faith was being tested.   So, on a leap of faith, I decided to have enough faith to Google Christmas and January 7th.

Amazingly, a number of “hits” came up on the search engine.   It turns out that much of Christendom today uses the old Roman Julian calendar.   That wasn’t always so.   There was a time when the Christendom used the Gregorian calendar, otherwise known as the Christian calendar.   In fact, over a half billion Orthodox members still celebrate Christmas on January 7th to this very day.   From that point forward, I realized that there was a spiritual reality far beyond my Baptist upbringing.   In response, I began to voraciously study near death experiences.  Pieces began to fit together like pieces to a jigsaw puzzle.  This study culminated in my book, Psychology and the Near Death Experience.  http://www.neardeathexppsy.com/

The Problem with Money by Author Jane Honeck

Dreamvisions 7 Radio Network Celebrates Featured Writers

featured-writer-seal1The Problem with Money, It’s Not About the Money by Author Jane Honeck

32-The Problem with Money bookJane Honeck’s unique approach, refined over years of working with clients one-on-one and in group classes, is clearly presented in The Problem with Money? It’s Not About the Money! It begins with identifying money beliefs in seven key areas and exploring how they influence behavior in seven facets of our lives. Then it provides tools and techniques for gaining power over these beliefs so a change of financial behavior naturally emerges. Bringing the process full circle, it provides methods for identifying small, doable action steps that produce the profoundly positive benefits of being financially conscious.

Jane Honeck, CPA, PFS, PCC
For as long as I can remember I always wanted to make a difference in this world. And although I spent most of my career as a traditional financial consultant for individuals and businesses at the firm I founded (Honeck-O’Toole Certified Public Accountants) it always felt like there must be more than just working with numbers. Somehow I didn’t think Saint Peter (or whoever would meet me in the afterlife) was going to pat me on the back and say, “you did a nice tax return”. So during the years that I built my practice and my expertise, I embarked on a journey of self-discovery. I longed to find a place where I could make that difference. My clients assured me I was making a big difference in their lives but somehow I just couldn’t get past thinking that there had to be something bigger than helping people with their money. I continued searching and expanding my knowledge with personal workshops.

Eventually I found my way to the Empowerment Institute of New York , trained under empowerment pioneers, Gail Straub and David Gershon and became a Certified Empowerment Trainer. Finally, I found the way to merge the two sides of my life and I understood what I was meant to do. Understanding that our unexamined beliefs are the root of our dysfunctional behavior I developed new money programs to help my clients understand why their thinking keeps them stuck and how to turn that thinking around. These programs combined my extensive money management experience with my in-depth awareness of human consciousness.

I knew teaching the mechanics of money wasn’t enough to help people change; I had seen the results (or lack thereof ) for years. Now I knew the solution was in understanding why. Recognizing the importance of this work, I wrote my award-winning and internationally published book, The Problem With Money? It’s Not About the Money! Mastering the Unexamined Beliefs that Drive Our Financial Lives.

I deepened my knowledge of human behavior and the change process through various programs at the Gestalt International Study Center in Cape Cod and became a GISC Certified Coach as well as a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) with the International Coaching Federation (ICF). I am currently a Professional Associate at the Center.

My extended family keeps my life full. With three sons of my own, four step-children and eight step-grandchildren, there are always plenty of life’s lessons and opportunities. I live with my husband Wayne  in Freeport, Maine where I work as a Money Coach, Personal Financial Specialist and CPA.


I learned two things from the people and companies I worked with as a traditional CPA for over 30 years:

  1. People work hard to do the “right” thing with money.
  2. The right thing with money causes great concern, frustration and stress for people.

I learned two important things from my own personal journey:

  1. There is no “right” way to do anything; there is only what works for me.
  2. We all do the best we can at all times.

I sensed that in spite of my clients’ great intentions and my great advice, we were both frustrated. The old way of working with money, just didn’t work precisely for the four reasons stated above. This book is my attempt to bring some light to the real problem with money. It’s my attempt to explore the psychological side of money—something relatively new when I wrote it 5 years ago.

So, my book doesn’t give you any answers. Rather, it gives you lots of food for thought. It asks you to understand why you do what you do with money. It gives you permission to be your own expert as you to uncover the beliefs that are the underpinnings of your financial world.

My book doesn’t have any numbers, just page numbers. So, it’s not as difficult or scary as other financial “how to” books can be. This is the first step. Working with numbers comes after you’ve built a firm foundation. Going straight to the numbers is why good intentions didn’t last and past approaches didn’t succeed.

Finally, my book is easy to read but difficult to process. Readers tell me, “I didn’t know I’d have to go back to therapy” or “I stayed awake all night thinking about it” and “it was tough, but it changed my life!”

It’s not for the faint of heart. But I’m told it’s worth the effort. I hope you think so too.
