Can Dreams Make You An Empowered Woman?

It was such an honor to be interviewed on Empowered Woman Radio by my host/guest writer today Gwilda Wiyaka, also the host of Mission: Evolution Radio, both of which are part of the ‘X’-Zone Broadcast Network, formed to fill a void in radio programming and allow listeners around the world to have access to the very best of Paranormal, Parapsychology.

Gwilda Wiyaka is also the Editor-In-Chief of The New Age Chronicles.

Gwilda is such an amazing person, that, with her permission, I decided to ‘turn the tables on this interview’ and share her with you, my readers, before sharing the interview I did as her guest. She is such an empowered, dynamic, diverse woman of mixed heritage including Scots-Irish, Bohemian, and Cherokee that I could not keep her all to myself. She is the kind of person who must be shared and cherished.

Gwilda walks-her-walk and talks-her-talk while gracefully wearing hats of many colors.

Her background of living in different societies around the world and her curiosity and fascination with the workings of life prompted her immersion into shamanism.

Some of those hats are CO state certified teacher of the shamanic arts, founder director of Path Home Shamanic Arts School, and Author. Born in the United States, Gwilda grew up overseas making her familiar and comfortable with many cultures. Her background of living in different societies around the world and her curiosity and fascination with the workings of life prompted her immersion into shamanism. While shamanism is an ancient Earth-based healing modality, Gwilda has demonstrated its modern-day effectiveness by integrating shamanism with medical practices and counseling practices.

This made Gwilda the perfect person to also interview me the first time on her Mission Evolution Radio Show.

By promoting the personal power and spiritual evolution of the individual, Gwilda has established shamanism as a healing modality in its own right. She has studied shamanism for almost forty years and has been a practitioner for twenty-five years and a teacher of the shamanic arts since 1996.

Gwilda studied with American Indian healers from the Seneca, Sioux, Navajo, Arapaho, and Choctaw traditions and has also received training in Tibetan, Core, and Celtic Shamanism. After attending grade school in Saudi Arabia, she obtained most of her higher education in Switzerland and holds a B.S. in Psychology and Religious Studies. She later became a Certified Massage Therapist in the United States at the Boulder College of Massage Therapy.

Gilda’s shamanic and counseling skills blend with her knowledge of the human body to create a shamanic healing modality that is not only unique but extremely effective. Early in her private practice, she began interfacing with psychotherapists, psychiatrists, chiropractors, and medical doctors, from whom she still receives many of her referrals. Her intuitive medical skills have been corroborated by MRIs, and CT Scans validating consistent accuracy, making her more understanding of my diagnostic dream stories which were validated by pathology reports.

She is a preceptor for the University of Colorado School of Medicine and provides instruction to medical doctors on the modern interface between shamanism and allopathic medicine for the University’s School of Medicine Complementary and Alternative Medicine course.

I felt Gwilda Wiyaka would be the perfect person to interview me about Precognitive Dreams That Can Save Your Life, and would understand how these dreams could be validated by medical pathology reports. Please enjoy the show.  

Welcome to the Empowered Woman Radio Show with host Gwilda Wiyaka and guest Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos. Listen as they discussed incredible diagnostic, precognitive and healing dreams from the book Dreams That Can Save Your Life: Early Warning Signs of Cancer and Other Diseases, featured on news channels nationwide, which focuses on the Breast Cancer Dream Research Program done by Duke University Radiologist Dr. Larry Burk. Kathleen is the co-author and one of Dr. Burk’s study patients.

According to current research everyone, but especially women due to their connection with female intuition, have the dream power to transform their health, their wealth and their relationships.

This is all part of the circle-of-life which is directly connected to our dream world through sleep. When we are sick, we sleep. While sleeping we dream, even if we do not remember the dreams. Through dreams, we connect with our inner selves including our Physician-within who may be busy working on our dis-ease using the subconscious realm of dreams.

When we are sick, it is difficult to work, which may reduce income and could affect relationships. Dreams can be a healing tool.

Connecting with dreams is like connecting with a friend. If you spend time with a friend, the relationship can grow stronger, last, and the friend will be there for you when you need help. If you ignore your friend, eventually that friend will go away. The same is true with our dreams.

If you ignore your dreams eventually, like an ignored friend,  they may stop speaking to you.

It is through our dreams that we can communicate with our Inner-guidance, Spirit-guides, and Guardian-angels. They are our innate gift. That means we are born with them. We are their job, and they take that job very seriously.

As women, we are especially tuned into our bodies, our lives and the lives of our children and family members. Everyone has an intuition that may speak to us in dreams, but women seem to embrace their Female Intuition which seems to go hand in hand with dreams.

Gwilda Wiyaka:

“Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos has spent years studying and teaching about dreams. A three-time breast cancer survivor whose premonitory dreams diagnosed her cancer, she credits her survival to conventional treatment combined with her dreams as a diagnostic tool. All of her cancers were missed by the medical community and the tests on which they relied. Her knowledge and personal wisdom come from “the trenches of life,” not from hypothetical theories. She is the author of Surviving Cancer Land, Co-author of “Dreams That Can Save Your Life” a life guidance coach, and inspirational speaker.”

  1. Great introduction to Gwilda! I see her posts often in TWOFC group and I am happy to know her better. Her life journey is fascinating. Like Suzie mentioned, I rarely remember my dreams and when I do nothing it them seem to make sense. I often feel like it’s better to put them behind me and go on with my day. I am going to keep a journal next to my bed and try to write about my dreams. I truly believe you have been saved at multiple occasion through your dreams Kat and like you say: “If you ignore your dreams eventually, like an ignored friend, they may stop speaking to you.” I think I will give this a try. Thank you for this great and impressive article!

  2. Interesting to meet Gwilda, will reach out to her. Thanks for sharing. Now to dreams I rarely remember dreams, your posts inspire me to get that dream journal out agin- today i will find it. As last might I had a dream about someone dear to me who seems to have cut off contact and I will now journal on that- it wasn’t a happy dream . Thanks

    • Suzie, it sounds like your dream is connecting you and is a call to action. Let me know how that works out.
