Introduction

I discovered how strong I was when my body was at its weakest. My physical and mental body could no longer think, move, or function properly.  My life and health were abruptly rerouted on a path that was scary and unknown.

Eventually, I knew I had to make a choice. Who was going to be in control of my future health and life, Lyme disease, or me?

I chose me.

I chose to trust and listen to my body so I could continue to thrive, learn, teach, and live a life of purpose.

I chose to view my life from a new perspective to create my place in this new world of chronic pain and Lyme disease.

Within this new view of living with multiple diagnoses, symptoms, and pain, I practiced the alternative healing tools and methods in this

book so that I could reclaim my health and start creating a life I was in love with again.

I want the same for you.

I was able to embrace and change my experience and relationship with Lyme disease and other co-infections to help me release my fears, heal, and transform them into a story of purpose. That is what I am sharing on these pages. I wrote this book to connect people and remind all of us that we are not alone. We are on this healing journey together.

I am not an authority on treating, diagnosing, and/or treating Lyme disease or any other chronic disease and illness. I am however an authority on living with chronic pain and the symptoms of this disease and my other related diagnoses. I also have a master’s degree in public health.

Please note that Lyme disease and other diseases/illnesses/symptoms are profoundly serious and could be life-threatening. They require proper medical attention and care from a qualified healthcare provider or team.

This book is not to be used as a substitute for your medical care and attention. Your life and health are important and seeking proper medical care is a priority. This book is a guide to provide you with alternative healing tools and activities to learn, practice, and empower yourself to become your own advocate to help you think better, feel better and live better in mind, body, and spirit as a whole.

We were born to live our highest potential even with our chronic illnesses, diagnoses, and symptoms. Sure, it was easier to plan our future dreams and goals when we had the energy, focus, and felt well. Even though our path has been temporarily derailed, it does not mean we stop believing, stop having hope, and stop having a purpose.

It only means we need to look at and approach our health and live our best lives differently. Sometimes all we need is a simple reminder, some guidance to gently nudge us and give us permission to start envisioning, creating, and living new dreams and achieving new goals.

My story focuses on my experience with Lyme disease and my personal healing process, but this could easily be your story too.

This book was written for everyone who lives with any type of chronic pain, symptoms, and illness. This book is for those who are still seeking answers and support. The message in these pages will provide you with hope when you experience the ups and downs in your personal healing journey.

There will be moments and days where you feel like you are succeeding and moving forward. There will be days where you feel like your health took a huge step backward. You may question your life, your purpose, and more. This is where hope comes in, the key ingredient that saved me and keeps me going.

75 million people in this country, or half of the working population, would change jobs or careers in a heartbeat if given the choice. Are you one of them?

 

Why are we so unhappy in our work lives? Do you feel like you are just
trying to survive the daily grind during the week, just so you can get to
the weekend? Is it hard for you just getting out of bed so you can get to a
job that seems like sheer drudgery? How do we find the spark that seems to
be missing in our lives?

We all want more energy and want to be excited about our jobs and the
things we are spending time and energy on, but yet it seems clear that there
is a pervasive lack of enthusiasm, drive or energy in the people around us
at home and in our jobs. People seem to be going about their lives unplugged
and unengaged in the spiritual power and unique energy given to each and
every one of us. Power and energy lie within our unique, God given
passion.

In the second book of the Authentic Self series, Discover Your Passion,
Release Your Power, Dr Cavazos guides us onto the next leg of this exciting
journey forward to our Authentic Self. One critical aspect of this path
towards discovery and fulfillment is the absolute requirement of finding and
releasing the power of passion. In this book, you will:

1. Identify the essentials of your unique passion

2. Unlock the power of self-motivation

3. Uncover your own personal drive to thrive

4. Begin to use focus and determination to reach critical goals

5 Harness the skills of goal management for well-being, joy and
fulfillment

6. Find the value, protection and guidance that passion and purpose
bring

7. Learn why millions of people abandon New Years resolutions within 6
weeks

8. Discover the 18 sources of physical and spiritual power available to
each and every one of us

Drawing examples from inspiring leaders and people who have been successful
in business, music, science, sports and the arts, Dr. Cavazos will help you
examine your own life and experiences to enlighten you on this captivating
and invigorating trek to releasing the spiritual and physical power that is
bubbling within you, waiting to be released and unleashed.

If you truly believe that you have a unique God given purpose, but you are
having a tough time finding that purpose or the energy or drive to fulfill
that purpose, then this is the book for you. There is an exciting,
empowering and spell binding adventure waiting for you that will bring
peace, joy and a sense of fulfillment and well-being that you had no idea
even existed. Discover Your Passion. Release Your Power. You won’t regret
it.

Brave The Wave

The Authentic Self, Book 1

Release Date: April 2019

Publisher: Deaf Dog Publishing

Anxious? Stressed? Confused? Looking for Solutions?

As a practicing physician for twenty years, that is exactly the situation
that Johnny Cavazos was in. What stunned and shocked him the most was one
inescapable fact. He didn’t know what he didn’t know.

As he describes it, “The best analogy I can offer is that it’s like taking
your car to the mechanic to replace a faulty fuel pump and he hands you the
keys to a brand new Mercedes Benz and says, “take it, it’s yours.” (That’s
how Elvis used to give away cars.) There is more value here than a new
Mercedes.”

In this poignant and riveting account of his decade long journey of
discovery, you will be entertained while gaining valuable insight to help
you understand and actually appreciate the waves, trials and storms that we
all encounter in our lives.

This inspiring narrative of personal experiences will reveal useful and
practical approaches to help increase joy, clarity, love and personal peace
in your life. This book makes for a fascinating, powerful and uplifting read
that can inspire each of us to reach for heights we never thought
attainable.

With brutal honesty and humor, Johnny uses short vignettes from the medical
world and from the captivating world of near-death experiences to take us on
a journey that is spell binding, powerful and life changing.

Writing in a comfortable and warm style, Johnny takes us on this trip into
spirituality, faith and the near death experience as he unpacks ideas that
will open up an experience of clarity and vision you didn’t even realize
existed.

Brave the Wave will share valuable insights that will have a personal and
powerful impact on every relationship you have, bringing benefits to you and
everyone around you.

#Excerpt “The Christian Christmas Condition” by Scott Rankin

~~~

Christian – Holiday – self spirit improvement
Date Published: December 2019
 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png
What do you want for Christmas? We all hear this question everywhere, but author Scott Rankin invites us all to slow down for a moment and ask a different question… What does God want for Christmas? Our Lord desires that we become more Christ-like every day (1 Corinthians 11:1). To accomplish this goal, He tells us to renew our minds (Romans 12:2). But how do the Christmas holidays help accomplish this goal if so much busyness and stress make it hard to focus all our attention on Christ and completely rest in His peace? In an easy-to-read format, “The Christian Christmas Condition” takes a new and refreshing look by asking the question, “How does our Lord feel about Christmas today?” encouraging Christians of all ages to examine Christmas-time traditions from God’s perspective. Filled with Bible references, this study will boost your faith, increase your knowledge, and strengthen you to fully honor Jesus in the midst of Christmas, traditions, and busy holiday activities, and reveal the secret of what God says in the Bible about Christmas today! Whether your family participates in Advent, Hanukkah, midnight mass, uses a Christmas tree, or watches for Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, this powerful book encourages all Christians to become more Christ-like in our thinking and our actions each, and every day of the year… not just in the winter holidays!

– CHAPTER 1 –

 “TOP 10” LIST

Merry Christmas! Put your holiday thinking caps on, because we’re warming up with two fun challenges. First, I’m going to give you three sets of lyrics. Your job is to see how much of each song you can remember. If you feel like singing out loud, be my guest. Ready?

  1. Oh, you better watch out, you better not…
  2. Rudolph the…
  3. I’m dreaming of a…

Now, let’s get into the Christmas spirit with our final exercise: when I say “go,” quickly list the top ten things you associate with the Christmas season. You may include past memories or present-day traditions; anything related to Christmas, and there are no wrong answers. This exercise is about the first things that pop into your mind, so complete your list as quickly as you can. You can use the space provided below or get your own sheet of paper, but please don’t skip this brief exercise, as you’ll want to reference your list later!

When you’re done, we’ll continue on the next page. Ready… Set… Go!

Here are a few popular answers: Jingle Bells, cutting out paper snowflakes, snowball fights, writing letters to Santa Claus, vacation from school, mistletoe, sitting by a warm fireplace on a cold night, trimming the Christmas tree, hanging stockings, setting out cookies and milk for Santa Claus, candlelight mass, Christmas lights on houses, and family reunions… Some of our fondest memories circulate around this time of year!

I once asked a woman named Lisa to do this exercise out loud, and she did an amazing job of listing a large number of family-related activities. However, not one thing she listed had any correlation with Jesus, His birth, worship, angels announcing Jesus’ birth, or a manger scene. Now, Lisa loves the Lord, but I asked her why she had so many other thoughts come to mind before Jesus—and her answer unveiled the perfect premise for this book (thank you, Lisa). She said, “I guess we’re all just conditioned to think that way.” So now I ask, if we’ve really been conditioned… what condition are Christians in during Christmas?

What did your top ten list look like? Did Jesus make the cut? Now, let’s add another layer to this “top 10” list exercise. When you see your kids or any immediate family member today, ask them to take the same challenge. Their answers may astonish you (partly because they do not have the chance to read the introduction of this book beforehand). Their responses should be wonderfully raw.

As you compare other people’s responses, where did Jesus get put in the order? Was He first? Was He in the middle? Was He in the back? Or was He left out altogether? If you found anywhere through the results of your own experiment that Jesus did not dominate or top your list, or those of your friends and family members, then let’s examine why together.

You will find that there are a variety of different views among people about Christmas and its traditions. We’ve all heard phrases like:

  • “Jesus… the reason for the season”
  • “Let’s put Christ back into Christmas”
  • “We need to save Christmas”
  • “Happy Holidays” (instead of “Merry Christmas”)

Some in the body of Christ regard Christmas as a pagan holiday, believing we should not observe it at all. Many contend that Christmas was created to honor baby Jesus and it’s very important to keep this tradition so we can worship Him. Others still will point out that Christmas has now become so commercialized that we just need to get back to what is really important.

So, what is the real reason for the Christmas season? How did Christmas celebrations begin? How does God want us to use Christmas to worship and honor His Son? These are some great questions, and that is what we are going to cover in this book.

When Lisa suggested so appropriately that we have been “conditioned,” it simply implies that your surroundings, history, and family traditions have trained you to think a certain way. Truth be told, you were probably born into family traditions and influenced greatly as a child by your surroundings to put presents, the Christmas tree, or Santa first, all the while letting God and Jesus share the spotlight every now and then. In doing so, you may find that Jesus, over time, inadvertently moved out of the first priority position because of conditioned habits during this season.

But don’t lose heart—conditioned does not mean permanent. God tells us that through Him, we can renew our minds! And with a renewed mind comes an overflow of blessings.

So, sit back and enjoy while we study “The Christian Christmas Condition.”

Confession from the Publisher

ONE was born in my head just like my younger daughter’s name came to me; a gentle, yet certain whisper in my head, telling me to listen to it. I must do it.

That gentle voice arrived while I was showering, and I remember literally jumping out of the shower, rushing over to my computer and starting the process of creating something which simply had to be created.

As I am writing this, I have goose bumps all over my body. I still don’t fully grasp what has happened; I was led to this journey; I was an instrument in the hands of the universe. And, as always, I obeyed.

“You must do it now” the voice repeated. And so, I rearranged my priorities and my schedule, and let ONE lead the way. As the days passed, ONE was created, marvelous people came into my life, people I know will stay in my life forever, as our souls are united with the mission ONE has created.

We worked hard. Stealing time from our loved ones, sacrificing our sleep and ourselves. We created ONE, just as life is created; with unconditional love, with patience, with dedication.

It is hard to describe the feeling, the euphoria of bringing ONE to the world. It was something I couldn’t wait to do; I don’t really want it to end.

You will feel the love in the lines of this book. You will embrace the energy and accept it as yours, it is inevitable. That is, on top of the transformation this book will bring to your life and the lives of your loved ones.

To me, ONE represents a new family, a global family, people uniting together, as ONE.

Thank you  for  choosing me,  as  your  author, your  publisher, your “pachamamma”.

I am truly honoured.

Excerpt
 
Foreword
When I was asked to edit ONE, I immediately accepted not really knowing what I was letting myself in for. I have edited many wellness articles and books so naturally I expected something similar. It turned out I was very wrong. Editing this book has been an extraordinary journey, it was in fact emotional and at times extremely confronting. Each author has an incredibly strong story, they have written from the heart and have shared their most difficult moments with you, the reader. It takes courage to stand up and admit to the world that your life is, or in this instance was, far from perfect and yet all of them have grown from their experiences.
I am no stranger to challenges, parenting a child that has a lot of trauma, balancing work with being a mom and wife, it takes its toll. We all get lost in our day to day lives until we realise that there is more to life. But often we are unsure where to start, there are so many books, blogs, podcasts and therapies out there. It is a sure sign that there is a need for the information. ONE has managed to capture 22 different ways of bringing more balance to your life.
Every chapter gave me practical tools to improve my way of living, easy and accessible. After each chapter, I felt inspired, encouraged that yes, I too can get more out of life but even more importantly, I felt I deserved it.
I am convinced this book can change people, change their way of living but most of all it can teach people to love themselves. I am very grateful I was asked to work on this project, I have edited the book in such a way that each author kept their voice and their message and the result is as extraordinary as it gets.
I hope you will enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed editing it.
Read it, pass it on to your friends and family or give it as a gift because truly, there is no better gift than the book that keeps on giving.
ONE is unique in every single way!
With love and gratitude
Heidi

#BookTour “Clean Water for Developing Countries” by John A. Dracup PhD

Clean Water tour

~~~

coverEnvironmental Studies
Date Published: January 8, 2020
Publisher: Clean Water Press
 
Goodreads Button

The main purpose of this book is to assist the reader in choosing the best method for providing clean and safe water in a developing country. Most of the book’s content comes from the knowledge gained from:

-Fifty-plus years of research and teaching in water resource engineering, hydrology and clean water for developing countries at both the University of California, Los Angeles, and the University of California, Berkeley.

-Thirty-five years as an expert witness on numerous hydrologic and water resource engineering legal cases.

-Clean water projects that I was involved with in Kenya, Peru, Honduras and Guatemala between 2011 and 2017.

-Attendance at various courses including ones at the Centre for Affordable Water & Sanitation Technologies (CAWST) in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and at “Potters for Peace” in Dodgeville, Wisconsin.

-My many colleagues and students.

The sites needing clean water can be diverse, e.g. an individual household, an entire village, a group of villages, a school, a clinic, an orphanage, etc. The focus of this book is to provide the reader with a basic understanding of how to bring clean water supplies to these entities. The optimal approaches will depend on both the Point of Use (POU), which may be large or small, and the state of the water (quantity, turbidity, type and concentration of pathogens/bacteria/viruses present) at the water source. Point of Use (POU) is the location where the water is to be consumed.

The majority of those impacted by unsafe water live in isolated rural areas of the developing world. Cost, sustainability, cultural differences and acceptance by those who will use the water are all important factors in providing clean drinking water to these people.

These factors include:

-Community Involvement. By far, the most successful water enhancements in developing countries are tied to community organizations, particularly among the female population.

-The Source of Water. It could be from groundwater, rainwater harvesting or surface water, such as springs, creeks, rivers, lakes and reservoirs.

-The Quality of the Source Water. The water may have physical, biological and/or chemical pollution.

The Size of the Demand Population. Is it an individual household, a school, an orphanage, a small or large village, or a group of villages? Obviously, this affects the amount/volume of clean water needed, and this affects the methodology to be used.

-The location of the population to be served. Are they close together or widely dispersed?

INTRODUCTION

“Thousands have lived without love, not one without water.”

-W.H. Auden

The Dilemma: You have arrived at a village in western Kenya in the late afternoon. The sky is a dusty haze. There is a stillness in the air.

Parenting, Christian, Non-Fiction
Publisher: Lucid Books

The Struggle Bus: The Van. The Myth. The Legend is designed to take you, dear reader, on a ride with the Wood family in the van that became an Internet sensation.
This one-of-a-kind literary adventure you are about to embark on is about more than a viral van. It’s about managing the wonderful chaos of a family of 11. It’s about parenting. It’s about marriage. It’s about success. It’s about failure. It’s about faith. It’s about fun. It’s about a van becoming a metaphor for life as it is given a fun-filled beatdown for the ages. As you roll along with the Wood family, you just might feel driven to:
•  connect a little more with the God who made you.
•  give yourself a little more grace when you fail.
•  smile and laugh a little more—both at the Wood family’s expense and your own.
Hop in, buckle up, hold your nose, laugh, and join the Wood family to explore one of life’s fundamental truths: the struggle is real.

EXCERPT

Have you ever searched for a used vehicle online? As you are aware, I have. It’s an exhausting process. After a couple hours of browsing, a number of common advertising phrases begin to annoy me—like irrationally annoy me, like beyond reason annoy me. On one level, I completely understand why car ad writers use certain catchphrases. On another level, though, I irrationally hate them. Here are the phrases along with my inner dialogue.

Ad Phrase: “The AC is cold as ice!”

Me: Have you ever touched ice?

Ad Phrase: “The transmission shifts like a dream!”

Me: Your dreams make me sad.

Ad phrase: “has potential”

Me: Great! That’s exactly what I’m looking for in a vehicle—something

that I can possibly, maybe, sorta, kinda, perhaps, someday drive—potentially.

Ad phrase: “mostly highway miles”

Me: Sure they are. Liar! I’m sure you use your car to drive exclusively

between cities whilst hopping onto your scooter every time you need to drive

within the city limits. You’re such a hipster.

When I decided to list our van for sale, I was determined to avoid all these phrases. Of course, avoiding half those phrases wasn’t going to be a problem, mainly because our transmission seemingly controlled our AC. And due to this issue, our AC—rather than being cold as ice—was cold enough to melt ice.
