    "Begin your discovery and become a student of franchising while you are following the path to launching and growing your franchis system."

    You're Not Crazy, You're Awakening! with Dr. Edwige

    in Self Help

    Given her many nocturnal experiences with sudden energy downloads, light-being visitations, telepathic wisdom being imparted and spectral family members checking in, she has handled her experiences with uncommon aplomb, knowing that they were all part of her path to raising her consciousness so she could become the internationally renowned and powerful healer, intuitive, coach and spiritual activator that she is today.


    And since she has previously blazed this path, she now offers to be a guide for others through her book "You're Not Crazy, You're Awakening!" It allows people to embrace their multi-dimensional self, get comfortable with unexpected experiences that are helping them to raise their frequency, and give a hearty welcome to benevolent beings waiting in the wings to help the transition.  


    More than that, she charts a course anyone-even those who haven't had such experiences-can follow to access the realm of higher consciousness. Filled with keen wisdom, practices and processes, this book opens the door for someone to become a "conscious thinker." Dr. Edwige touches on a wide variety of subjects to advance awakening-soul retrieval, clearing and clarifying energy, astral travel and grounding, past-life regression, heart-opening exercises, lucid dreaming, living a multi-dimensional existence, visualization and intentional manifesting, integrating life force energy, spiritual empowerment, rejection of and power over non-beneficial energies, and methods to increase one's vibrational level.
