The Man Overboard by Darryl Hagar

I just got off the phone with Darryl Hagar - his memoir is with the publisher and we are starting to coordinate our efforts to help share his story to help others.


Below you will see a video of one of his speaking engagements and it will give you an idea of the experiences he had in life. He got to the rock bottom and he says that if he can tame his beasts, he can help others. He tells it much better than I can ---





I'll be sharing more information about Darryl Hagar and his story soon.

Dyan Garris Biography

DYAN GARRIS


For many years Dyan Garris has been counseling clients in order to help them move forward in their lives. She is clairvoyant, clairaudient, and clairsentient. In addition, Dyan is also what is known as a voice recognition psychic and trance channel. Throughout her career she has taught many people how to use the power of the energy contained in their chakras to unblock the energy field, and use the techniques of integrative healing to unlock their potential and transform themselves into the best they can be.


Her new DVD Doors to the Soul is for Automatic Chakra Balance.™ This is a technique she developed to help balance the energy field in approximately ten minutes. Her latest book Money and Manifesting teaches why the Law of Attraction and the power of positive thinking are not enough for effective manifesting, and exactly what to do about it. The way the book is written, with fiction wrapped around non-fictional information is designed to effect an automatic shift in the energy field. The book is a major step forward in learning to use the LOA as but one step in the process of manifesting, and is geared toward dispelling the misinformation that abounds regarding manifesting.


She is the author of The Book of Daily Channeled Messages, Voice of the Angels Cookbook – Talk To Your Food! Intuitive Cooking, and Fish Tale of Woe – Lost at Sea. Dyan writes the “Daily Channeled Message” andDear Dyan” advice column which post on her main website. She is an expert on self-empowerment at Selfgrowth.com.


Dyan is the author, developer, and artist of Voice of the Angels – A Healing Journey Spiritual Cards. (©1993 - 2008) This is a thirty card deck of angel cards based upon scenes from A Healing Journey Guided Fantasy, which is the guided meditation found on the last track of her first CD. Each card has its own channeled message in rhythmic quatrain verse from the angels who are the “voice” in Voice of the Angels. The cards were originally co-created in 3D with crystals and other natural elements, thus making their core energy quite different from similar divination cards. They “speak.” A journal is available as an integrative companion tool for use with the cards. Free online angel card readings are available in three languages at www.voiceoftheangels.com.


In 2005 she began the creation of a “Spiritual Toolbox”™ which in addition to the cards, books, and DVD, includes a CD series of instrumental music and meditation for integrative and multi-dimensional healing, relaxation, Automatic Chakra Balance™ and vibrational attunement of mind, body, and spirit. The first six CDs contain several tracks of relaxation music plus a guided meditation on the last track. Each vibrates to a specific chakra and each is for a specific purpose, while also working multi-dimensionally on the entire energy field.


There are eight CDs in the now completed series (all available separately) plus two radio version music only compilations and two meditation only compilations. Her CD Release is eleven tracks of relaxation/massage music vibrating to, opening, and clearing the seventh chakra. The final CD Eight is twelve tracks of music for ascension vibrating to the chakras eight and beyond. The CD series has earned the National Health and Wellness Stamp of Approval.


Dyan’s CDs have been nominated for multiple New Age Reporter Lifestyle Awards in several categories. Her music can be heard nationally and internationally on numerous radio stations and consistently charts at #1 on Music Choice’s Soundscapes cable TV music station.


Garris is a frequent radio guest and Mystic Pop Magazine interviewed her for their January/February 2008 issue. Living In Style TV featured her products in their 2007 holiday show. She is the author of numerous articles on manifesting and self-empowerment, including “Future Attraction in the New Age – The Real Secrets of Manifesting.” Dyan will be featured on the front cover of Self-Improvement Magazine in their December/January isuse.


More information is available at www.voiceoftheangels.com, and www.myspace.com/voiceoftheangels

Media Inquiries: Nikki Leigh. Please note, Ms. Garris no longer provides private psychic readings, however, she will be providing Manifesting Therapy beginning in late October, 2008.

Before the Scalpel by Panchali Dhar, MD - Virtual Book Tour

Before the Scalpel: What Everyone Should Know About Anesthesia
by Panchali Dhar, MD


The decision has been made: you are going to have surgery.
You’ve met with your surgeon. You have a good idea what will happen during the operation. But how much do you know about the anesthesia?


Did you know, by the age of 50 most people have had at least 3 or 4 encounters with some form of anesthesia? Before you or a loved one undergoes another surgery or medical procedure, this book will enable you to empower yourself and learn the basic questions to ask about anesthesia.


Did you know 1 in 7 Americans will be getting plastic surgery in the next 5 years. By the year 2015, 55 million plastic surgery procedures will be done annually.


Why is superstar BeyoncĂ© afraid of childbirth? She said on having a baby: “No way! I’m terrified of delivering a child because I saw my nephew being born. That traumatized me. I’m only 27. I’ve got time….” Hear what Dr. Dhar has to say about how to eliminate that fear and give birth pain-free.


Every mother and father’s nightmare: The phone rings. It’s the day care center or the school. Your child has had an accident and was rushed to the hospital. Your child needs surgery and must undergo anesthesia. What does this mean? You’ve tried to educate yourself about childhood diseases and symptoms and be prepared to take care of routine first aid situations. But now you’re in a panic! Read this book to be prepared and know what questions to ask.


Author Panchali Dhar, MD, is an Assistant Professor of Clinical Anesthesiology and Anesthesiologist at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center and is board-certified in Internal Medicine and Anesthesiology. She has demystified the process and terms associated with anesthesia and arranged the information in an easy to understand topic-by-topic sourcebook. Dr. Dhar takes you into the complicated, fascinating, cutting-edge world of anesthesia.


In Before the Scalpel: What Everyone Should Know about Anesthesia, Dr. Dhar explores such real-life topics as:

  • Pain-relief options during Labor and Delivery
  • Facts to know before deciding on Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery
  • Why children are not just “small adults” when it comes to anesthesia
  • How obesity adds risk to surgery and anesthesia
  • The common fear of awareness during anesthesia


In Before the Scalpel: What Everyone Should Know about Anesthesia, Dr. Dhar walks readers through the various steps that ensure a safe and pain-free experience during medical procedures that may require or benefit from anesthesia. Before the Scalpel is formatted and illustrated for quick and easy reference in an interactive manner. This is a take-along-book to the doctor’s office, with outlines and room to make notations. Each chapter is a mini crash course for any person who is concerned about the anesthesia aspect of surgery.
