Kimberly has a gift and passion for connecting world changing women tothe power of their money. She has helped 1000’s of people over the past 15 years release their debilitating hidden blocks and fears to lead more successful lives. Kimberly has 15 years experience in the financial planing world. She owned and operated an eco-flooring store for 5 years and earned 3/4 of a million dollars in her third year. She spent 12 years training at Aesclepion Intuitive Healing Center where she discovered her intu-itive abilities, channeled, lead healing clinics, and learned how to manage her energy. Kimberly has traveled to more than a dozen countries. She has worked directly with many indig-enous healers in Guatemala, Tibet, and spent 15 days with the Shipibo shamans deep in the Am-azon jungle in Peru participating in sacred ceremony with, their master plant teacher, Ayahausca. This allowed her to access ancient wisdom and innate knowledge that has enabled her to expand on the work of Dr. David Hawkins in his book “Power vs. Force.” But it hasn’t always been this way… Kimberly grew up in one of the wealthiest counties in the country on welfare. Her alcoholic fa-ther was often unemployed and her mother raised her in a very suppressive religious cult. This deep programming taught that money is the root of all evil, and having anything luxurious was being materialistic. While growing up, she could not participate in holidays and birthdays, she could not have friends outside the group, and college was forbidden. This life long quelling of her spirit eventually caused her to walk into a sporting good store to buy a gun to end her life. Instead she got angry and found an exit strategy to leave the cult and her abusive husband. She discovered she and her children were not disowned by her higher power. She set out to unearth what she had been deprived of… Today she believes each of us is perfect, luminous and brilliant beyond belief. She believes heal-ing is necessary, not because we are broken, damaged, or defective, but because some of our es-sence is buried among the lies and misconceptions we believe about ourselves. She is delighted to share the best of her discoveries as an international energy healer, seer, and spiritual guide who has unlocked the secrets on how to manage the energy of your money to lead a life of true wealth without worry.

ABOUT SUSAN GLYNN
What delights me is that over the last 19 years since experiencing my very first Energy training, I’ve just known that Energy was going to be vitally important to my life.
Healing began happening within that first training and with me...because I just decided I wanted more and Better in my life, and set about using the Energy tools I gathered, on me. This persistently created good change in me.
Something else showed up...some kind of 'clear guidance' to the trainings and tools that would benefit me Most. Some were an experience of "ok . . . that is not going deep or fast or efficiently enough for me . . . so I’d move on.
So the more I asked for Better Please...the more skillful & easy the tools put in front of me have become...and some are so much Fun. BALANCE in life is important to me...and so gaining tools to create that has been a focus.
Now, how grateful I am with my tool box . . . and yes, it’s always up for an updates.
It’s also been made obvious to me that by improving Me . . . I then, am a resonance for more Love . . . which is the fastest easiest way to be doing good for all the world and humanity.
My feeling is that we humans have massive capacities and I’m full throttle on achieving whatever I can in my own body and life . . . towards Full Human Potential.
. . . Oh and it’s essential to my plan to have Fun with It.!!! :-)
Please join me to hear more and would love questions about what you want for yourself.
LOVE to all . . .

MIKE GRAVEL was born in Springfield, Massachusetts, to French Canadian immigrants. He attended French-speaking Catholic schools and as a teenager, when he wasn't working with his father and brothers in the house painting and construction business, volunteered in local Springfield politics, developing an avid interest in government.
Senator Gravel enlisted in the U.S. Army (1951-54) and served as special adjutant in the Communication Intelligence Services and as a Special Agent in the Counter Intelligence Corps. He received a B.S. in Economics from Columbia University, New York City, and holds four honorary degrees in law and public affairs.
Mike Gravel served in the Alaska House of Representatives from 1963-66, and as Speaker from 1965-66. He then represented Alaska in the U.S. Senate from 1969-81. He served on the Finance, Interior, and Environmental and Public Works committees, chairing the Energy, Water Resources, Buildings and Grounds, and Environmental Pollution subcommittees.
In 1971, he waged a successful one-man filibuster for five months that forced the Nixon administration to cut a deal, effectively ending the draft in the United States. He is most prominently known for his release of the Pentagon Papers, the secret official study that revealed the lies and manipulations of successive U.S. administrations that misled the country into the Vietnam War. After the New York Times published portions of the leaked study, the Nixon administration moved to block any further publication of information and to punish any newspaper publisher who revealed the contents.
From the floor of the senate, Gravel (a junior senator at the time) insisted that his constituents had a right to know the truth behind the war and proceeded to read 4,100 pages of the 7,000 page document into the senate record. The Supreme Court ultimately ruled that Senator Gravel did not have the right and responsibility to share official documents with his constituents.
He then published The Senator Gravel Edition, The Pentagon Papers, Beacon Press (1971). This publication resulted in litigation, Gravel v. U.S., resulting in a landmark Supreme Court decision (No. 71-1017-1026) relative to the Speech and Debate Clause (Article 1, Section 6) of the United States Constitution.
He has worked as a cab driver in New York City, a clerk on Wall Street and as a brakeman on the Alaska Railroad. He founded and served as president of The Democracy Foundation, Philadelphia II, and Direct Democracy, nonprofit corporations dedicated to the establishment of direct democracy in the United States through the enactment of the National Initiative for Democracy by American voters.
Books authored by Senator Gravel are Jobs and More Jobs, and Citizen Power. He lectures and writes about governance, foreign affairs, economics, Social Security, tax reform, energy, environmental issues and democracy.
Senator Gravel is married to Whitney Stewart Gravel and has two grown children: Martin Gravel living in Colorado and Lynne Gravel Mosier, living in California. The Gravels have four grandchildren: Renee, Alex, Madison and Mackenzie.

TRAVIS WALTON was one of a group of loggers, who, on November 5, 1975, in the mountains of northeastern Arizona observed a strange, unusually bright light in the sky. One of those men, Travis Walton, recklessly left the safety of his truck to take a closer look. What happened next sent his companions fleeing in fear. When Travis failed to reappear, the men were suspected of murder. For five days authorities mounted a massive manhunt in search of Walton or his body. Walton eventually reappeared, disoriented and initially unable to tell the details of his terrifying encounter. His book Fire in the Sky provides an account of his experience. A major motion picture was also made with the same name.
ABOUT THE BOOK Fire in the Sky by Travis Walton
On november 5, 1975, a group of loggers in the mountans of northeastern Arizona observed a strange, unusually bright light in the sky. One of those men, Travis Walton, recklessly left the safety of their truck to take a closer look. Suddenly, as he walked toward the light, Walton was blasted back by a bolt of mysterious energy.
His Companions fled in fear. When they reported an encounter with a UFO — something they would have considered impossible if they had not witnessed it themselves — the men were suspected of murder. For five days authorities mounted a massive manhunt in search of Walton — or his body. Then Walton reappeared, disorented and initially unable to tell the whole story of his terrifying encounter.
In Fire in the Sky Travis Walton relates in his own words the best documented account of alien abduction yet recorded, the story of his harrowing ordeal at the hands of silent captors and his return to a disbelieving world of hostile interrogators, exploitative press and self-styled "debunkers." Travis recounts the struggle to get a fair hearing, and confronts his detractors with a stinging rebuttal.
Now, the real story behind the hit movie from Paramount — a detailed expose of the campaign to suppress Walton's story, and first-time revelations of startling new developments. 396 pp.

EDWARD PECK served as Special Assistant to the Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs (U. Alexis Johnson) in the Nixon Administration, January 1971. He was Chief of Mission in Baghdad (Iraq, 1977 to 1980) in the Carter Administration and later held senior posts in Washington and abroad. He also served as a Foreign Service Officer in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Egypt, and as Ambassador in Mauritania. At the State Department he served as Deputy Director of Covert Intelligence Programs, Director of the Office of Egyptian Affairs and as Special Assistant to the Under Secretary for Political Affairs. He served as deputy director of the White House Task Force on Terrorism in the Reagan Administration. He is president of Foreign Services International, a consulting firm that works with governments, businesses and educational institutions across the world.
CRITICISM OF G. W. BUSH PLAN TO INVADE IRAQ AND OF THE MIDDLE EAST POLICY...
Edward Peck argued against invading Iraq prior to the March 2003 invasion. He argued, in part, "when you take out Saddam Hussein, the key question you have to ask then is, what happens after that? And we don't have a clue. Nobody knows, but it's probably going to be bad. And a lot of people are going to be very upset about that, because that really is not written into our role in this world is to decide who rules Iraq." Peck has been highly critical of U.S. policy toward Israel, arguing through the Council for the National Interest (CNI) in which he plays an active role, that the U.S. should be more even handed in its Middle East policy. He argues that while Hezbollah could be considered a terrorist organization, it is no more terrorist than Israel or the U.S. itself. He supports a dialogue with Hezbollah. He claims that in 2000, at the Camp David talks, Israel offered the Palestinians "12 little Bantustans." Peck has met with Hamas leaders calling some of them "moderate". Peck has also said that he also believes that Hezbollah is not a terrorist organization.
JEREMIAH WRIGHT CONTROVERSY...
In March 2008 the U.S. Presidential campaign of Barack Obama was affected when videos of sermons by the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, his former pastor at Trinity United Church of Christ, came to media attention. In one broadcast on many media outlets, including ABC News, Wright, on September 16, 2001, referenced an appearance of Peck on Fox News before saying, "We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye...and now we are indignant, because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought back into our own front yards. America's chickens are coming home to roost." Wright attributed to Peck the credit for allegedly "pointing out" that "America's chickens are coming home to roost", a phrase Wright repeated several times. According to PBS Ombudsman Michael Getler, though Peck did cite numerous faults against America and criticized its foreign policy, "Peck never used the phrase about chickens coming home to roost. His answers were more nuanced."
GAZA FLOTILLA RAID... In May 2010, Peck was among the pro-Palestinian activists in the Gaza flotilla trying to break through Israel's blockade of Gaza. Peck was not harmed in Israel's raid; he reported he was brought to Israel "at gunpoint" and expelled the same day for "having illegally entered Israel"; he flew to Newark, New Jersey.
My Story: I experienced an awakening of sensitivities in 1987 during the Harmonic Convergence. I shifted from normal perceiving to cosmic; I was seeing Archangels across the sky, hearing celestial music in my ears and seeing the light energy around people. The Ascended Master St. Germain introduced himself to me within my third eye and invited me to be his student. He took me into 7 years of inner training. During this time I visited white marble and crystal temples both within the Earth and in cosmic realms. I often sat with the etheric teachers the Great White Brotherhood, learning and assimilating teachings and energy. I was lead to books once in a while to affirm all I’d been learning from within.
I spent years as a trance and conscious channel, speaker, workshop leader, and spiritual mentor. Many teaching Beings came through me to offer Guidance to audiences and clients during those years. Among these bringers of light were Archangels, Ascended Masters, The Starlight Brotherhood, Arcturians, Pleiadians and those from Sirius. An array of Divine Mother, Divine Father energies and angelic presence came through me often. I started receiving contact from those who had died and those yet to be born. I began to hear animals communicating with me as well as babies in utero. My world was quite different than the executive life I’d left.
Over the years, I followed the inner Guidance I was given. This taught me to trust deeply in the Love enfolding my earthly journey. Through that Guidance I also learned to trust the Divine Human Intelligence that I am. I was given an understanding that the phenomenal world I was encountering had its place in my development. I was shown that ultimately, beyond perceived separation, there was truly One Life being lived. This life was shown to me in the metaphor of a diamond. The diamond represents the whole, and all that I was encountering were like facets of the diamond. In this, I came to experience everything as a creative expression of God, Spirit, Love…call it what you will. I have had daily “conversations” with this benevolent voice of Love. This Love has taught me how to make good choices on my own behalf. I learned to trust by listening to my intuition, feeling what felt most true and then consulting with my analytic side for input. I learned to help others to empower their ability to connect with their own Guidance system.

After a double-initiation with the Mahavidyas, the ten Wisdom Goddesses who are aspects of Gaia Sophia intended to interface with humanity, she was given the directive to bring their spiritual teachings to others.
