Introduction

The Skeptic's Guide to The Adventures of Life is a lighthearted look at life's deeper lessons and mysteries as it chronicles business strategist Connie Siewert’s personal experiences, and those of her healers, during a three year journey to wellness.

As part of this focused quest for optimum health, Connie explored past lives with a hypnotherapist and spirit guide from Sylvia Browne’s Society of Spiritus Novus. Through reiki, healing touch and shamanic rituals, she was introduced into the world of our energetic selves and came to understand the power that it wields over our physical bodies. She experienced the power of distance healing and was given the gift of knowing momentarily what it is like to have a highly developed sixth sense. She has been cupped and had her acupoints punctured, her feet and related organs reflexed, her colon cleansed and her eyes studied as an uncanny source of information regarding her health. Connie has learned the vibrational affects of color, music and minerals, been counseled by the planets, angels and horses and communed with the other side. And through it all, she was able to significantly improve her lung condition, eliminate the pain and stiffness from arthritis in her knee and improve! her overall wellness, all while stimulating the mind and delighting the spirit.

Upon reading The Skeptic’s Guide to The Adventures of Life Mariette Edwards, principal of Star Maker Enterprises, summed up the healing odyssey as, 'Connie's CPA sensibilities are challenged and inspired by the surprising and unexpected revelations her explorations have produced. It's like Arthur Andersen meets Tinkerbell!'

Stephanie Maxine Ross, medical botanist and holistic practitioner to CEO’s and Celebrities, had this to say about The Skeptic’s Guide to The Adventure’s of Life, 'Connie Siewert, the 'healthy skeptic', charters a refreshing exploration into other healing modalities with honesty, wit, and charm. She inspires us to consider with openness new possibilities in our quest for wellness.'

Brent Atwater

Pages 126-127 describing first meeting with Brent Atwater, Medical Intuitive/Healer and Artist

My investigative reporter persona was in full swing and I was delighted to have such a willing subject to interrogate. I wanted to know everything about Brent and her medical intuitive abilities - what it was like to be her, how did it work, how did she feel about it. ... view entire excerpt...
