Helen Woo endured her life. It wasn't living. Raised in a restrictive traditional Chinese-American household, she experienced self-esteem issues, mental and physical abuse, grief, substance abuse, betrayal and depression. Yet she still managed to have a successful career that allowed her to build a bit of a nest egg. Later, when she invested it in a partnership with a close friend, only to have her partner steal all of the assets, that betrayal was the last straw. Alone and raising a son, Woo knew something had to change-and it wasn't the world around her-it was the world within her.
Having experienced a philosophical and spiritual shift, Woo created the concept of SELF-AID--an acronym that stands for Self-Aid (self-help), Esteem, Love/Laughter, Freedom, Attitude, Integrity, Dream. Her new book SELF-AID - Inspirations to Turn Struggles into Success(January, 2015), allows her readers to be inspired and uplifted by the very quotes that ultimately turned her life around. Each quote is followed by one of her unique "Wooisms" - the ideal way to interpret the quote to engineer a shift into a higher and better way of thinking. The book, divided into each of these categories, provides SELF-AID for anyone to lift out of their doldrums or depression and move into a life filled with joy, peace, gratitude and prosperity.

Jesus can show us the Way, he said, "I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of the heavens; and whatsoever thou mayest bind upon the earth shall be bound in the heavens; and whatsoever thou mayest loose on the earth shall be loosed in the heavens."

The Dr. Pat Show: The Multidimensional Traveler - Finding Togetherness with Author Khartika Goe.
The philosophy behind The Multidimensional Traveler: Finding Togetherness is to offer multidimensional wisdom to a global audience and seekers of knowledge with open minds through togetherness, raise humanity's understanding, enhance spiritual and subtle energy awareness, and ultimately, to inform individuals around the world of their true energetic potential. Transgressing all boundaries of age, education, and previous exposure to the topic of multidimensional phenomena, the book serves as a literary and spiritual manifestation that stands out in a genre dominated by both authors and an audience of mainly older generations.

Empathy is doing something for someone and not just feeling sorry for them. Empathy as about getting our needs responded to. Ms. Reiss says, "Empathy is like, getting underneath the skin of another person, to merge temporarily with their experience, then getting out, to reflect on the experience. Empathy can be taught, although a certain endowment may be inborn, research shows that it is a mutable trait. Our study demonstrated that empathy could be increased significantly in the training group and it decreased significantly in the control group."
Muscular Facial Expression
Posture (power image of connection)
Assets (expressed emotions)
Tone of Voice
Hearing the whole person (understand the context in how other people live)
Our brain is hard wired for empathy. Normal people reflect the feelings of others. We have an internal experience of what happens to others.
