excerpted from Health Intuition: A Simple Guide to Greater Well-Being by Karen Grace Kassy

Since the fall of 1984, when I first began working with the fields of intuition and health as a medical intuitive, I have seen an incredible increase of interest in the coupling of these two areas. We ask the questions “Why am I sick?” and “What can I do about it?” It seems that we’ve reached a time when we are now ready and willing to rely on our deepest inner-knowing for answers.

On the other hand, we are deeply logical and analytical creatures – how do we combine these two seemingly disparate worlds? Pursuing this quest and offering a plan to help people create this balance of intuition and intellect is the rich goal of this remarkable book by Karen Grace Kassy, MS.

Karen is someone whom I’ve watched develop for quite some time. We first met several years ago, following an interesting turn of events. Karen was employed by my tape publisher. She had heard my audio program, “Why People Don’t Heal.” Fascinated, she wanted to learn more.

The day before she was to come to one of my workshops, she picked out a gift for me, some musical tapes designed to aid healing. We never got to meet – for the first time in 14 years, I had to cancel a speaking engagement – I was sick. Karen later sent the tapes to me, with a note, “I knew you were a medical intuitive and probably know why everyone is sick and therefore how to be incredibly healthy yourself, but for some reason, these tapes on healing really drew me. Then, you ended up sick. Isn’t that a funny coincidence?”

“…she brings a down-to-earth approach that oftentimes is missing in the field.”

Karen’s come along way from attributing meaningful events to “funny coincidence.” A few months after we eventually met, she picked me up at the airport to take me to a taping. With some trepidation, she confessed, “I know all of your friends probably think they are becoming medically intuitive, but I really think it’s happening to me. I’ve been researching the field and practicing. I seem to possess this ability.”

I quickly reassured her that none of my friends wanted to be medically intuitive, but that I did think it was something that was happening to her. And, with the publication of her book, it’s something that can happen for you, too.
“She is an accurate health intuitive,
with a physician-verified ability.”

Karen’s background and bachelor’s degree are in business, and with that, she brings a down-to-earth approach that oftentimes is missing in this field. She’s also intelligently researched the field of intuition, earning a Master’s degree in Energy Medicine and Intuition. She calls herself a “health intuitive” instead of “medical intuitive,” to place greater emphasis on the goal of health. She is an accurate health intuitive, with a physician-verified ability and healthcare practitioners who refer patients to her regularly.

Early in her studies, I strongly recommended she follow a similar path to mine: completing an internship with a physician. Karen has a fantastic passion for learning. She not only interned with a physician, she took my suggestion to another level and worked with healthcare practitioners from many phases of complementary medicine. With this broader perspective, Karen continues to take her field and understanding to new levels.

“…her book stands out for its easy-to-follow, organized, and straightforward approach. Simply put, her
method works.”

After developing a simple and accurate method of intuitive diagnosis, she began teaching her technique to audiences worldwide – with great success. She teaches that intuition is not a substitute for healthcare, and I heartily agree. Rather, in our fast-paced era of information overload, it is a way to clarify information and offer a new perspective. As we are faced with more choices in holistic healthcare, intuition offers a common ground with which to synthesize approaches – taking the best of the best to save the patient and healthcare system time and money.

Karen is a wonderful communicator, both in spoken and written word. Despite there being more books available on health and intuition than ever before, her book stands out for its easy-to-follow, organized, and straightforward approach. Simply put, her method works.

Through my work as a medical intuitive, I realize that health is about learning lessons. To this end, recognizing what “unfinished business” each of us has in terms of patterns, issues, and problems is key to resolving health issues and becoming more intuitive. In Section I of this book, Karen has identified a series of common issues that she sees while working with clients as a health intuitive. Unlike many self-help books today, she doesn’t offer only theories – she provides practical solutions that can improve health and well-being. It is crucial for each of us to investigate these mental, spiritual, and emotional issues and to recognize which ones affect us. In each chapter, Karen provides a self-test of questions and key indicators that will help you discover, and work to transcend, the issues in your life.

“Health Intuition…is the finest book I have read on developing an awareness of the…connection between one’s intuition and the four levels of health.”

In my own work, I meet so many people who want to learn intuitive diagnosis. I have also met many people who attest that they have this ability, only to be disappointed by their lack of accuracy or integrity. By bringing a simple and effective method of intuitive diagnosis into the public domain (in section 2), there are concerns that this information will be misused. Because Karen addresses this drawback and others with compassion and integrity, I feel that the door has been opened for us to safely explore our birthright of intuition.

Health Intuition: A Simple Guide to Greater Well-Being is the finest book I have read on developing an awareness of the intimate connection between one’s intuition and the four levels of health (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual) and well-being. This delicious guide is not a one-size-fits-all intuitive program – thank goodness—rather, it is an empowering resource that can aid each of us in learning to listen to our inner-voice and improving health and well-being.
