Hundreds of thousands of ordinary innocent children and women are suffering in Syria and other countries every single day. They have no HOPE and voice to TELL their story. Aimmee Kodachian understands the horror and the FEAR that they go through when they hear a bomb.
Get an inside feel for the war from the life of a Lebanese War Victim on this episode of Power Up Living.
Aimmee Kodachian is a Middle Eastern woman who authored "Tears of Hope,” her riveting true life story as a young girl. Aimmee lived 13 years through the Lebanese Civil War; she was only 12 years old when a bomb killed her older brother right in front of her. In the blink of an eye, her family would soon lose everything and become homeless. She was faced with countless hardships, escaping death 3 times and lost many close family members. Due to her severe dyslexia and the war, she was forced to leave school at the 4th grade, lost her dream of becoming a teacher and was left with no opportunities or hope.
In 1988, Aimmee took the opportunity to come to the United States and start a new life. After years of persistence and determination, she became a successful entrepreneur. She not only found a way to Rise Above many challenges, she also learned how to see Light through Darkness and now helps others do the same.
Aimmee donates 100% of the profits from “Rise Above” (a song about her life story) and a portion of the proceeds from her “Tears of Hope” book and e-book, to organizations that support victims of war and tragedy.
Why Love Heals
Join Jim as he has an in depth conversation about self-healing and the power of thought with psychologist, researcher and best selling author Dean Shrock. Together we will discuss:
- Why every thought matters
- How to find and maintain the peace of mind necessary for good health.
- What is this thing called “Love”?
- How is science and quantum physics related to self-healing?
- The value of being “selfish”
- How to break the habit of doubt, even when you know better
In 1988 Dr. Shrock developed a wellness program whose purpose was to instill a greater “will to live” in cancer patients. While what he taught did affect a patient’s quality of life, Dr. Shrock was intrigued to find that it also extended their length of life. His experience and expertise led to a book in 2000 about this wellness program, Doctor’s Order’s: Go Fishing.. His 2009 bestselling book, Why Love Heals is about his research and discoveries and how to apply them to get well or stay well. He now lectures and teaches nationally.
“People who are busy doing what they like to do not only tend to forget their aches and pains, but experience a positive effect on their quality and length of life.”
