Present Day Significance

I am a world author of a trilogy “God’s Miracles in Lives of Regular People”, in which I describe how the main character Maria Kurbatov overcomes the dramatic events and survives the life-threatening situations thanks to her strong faith in the Divinity.
I am always opened to discuss the chain of Maria’s life occurrences and situations, author’s style of the description of these historical and personal events, as well as their resolutions, BUT the chain of events was not fictitiously created in my imagination, all of them took place in a true life of my mother-in-law Maria and were recorded by her in personal journals.
The way this wonderful woman observed the world, her philosophical and spiritual understanding of hardships, and the tactic that helped her to survive her personal adversities are apparent and logical in our time. Every modern person, a man or a woman, can easier undergo the global crises, learning from the immense experiences of the main character.
Maria’s human and spiritual examples had already saved lives of many people. She transferred her understanding of life to her sons, granddaughter and me, as well as to friends, multiple acquaintances, hundreds of fellow travelers, authorities and just strangers. The petite size woman was blessed to attract people’s attention to her life story, her philosophical, spiritual and practical understanding of life events and resolutions of hardships. People of different ages, ranks and social positions looked at Maria with admiration and respect. Thanks to realization of mother Maria’s approach to the life of our family, we were blessed to survive our personal death perils, multiple hardships and professional climbing to our successful achievements. Not so many immigrants can state that they survived in the USA without financial support of the government. We did. Nobody, but us paid for our education and life expenses. This country gives a lot of opportunities to people of young and middle age. Find what you want to achieve in your life. Imagine the final result. What is your dream? Never be afraid to dream. Second step is: think how you can reach your goal. When you dream about the final result, think about the practical steps of your project. I remember, how my husband, a first year immigrant, surprised the experienced business adviser with back ground of Yale university with his far-going plans to found and develop the International resort, based on integrative medicine which combined the lab and image testing of the regular medicine with holistic methods of healing. Actually, he had calculated in his thoughts every step of his dream before that visit to the business adviser and the single visit was enough for creating of the business plan. Mother Maria’s teaching helped: “Define your dream, hold it and do not allow yourself to lose it. When you know what you want, think how you can reach it. But do not forget about a corner stone of your structure - ask for God’s blessing of your project”.
We were always grateful to the Lord and our dear mother for passing our life tests and success that strengthened our faith in Divinity.
As a writer, I’ve been suggested by Media interview connection services to participate in shows on the topics they consider urgent at the present time. What major topics are suggested? Most of them are connected with accounting standards affecting bill payments; real estate and how the real estate attorneys are dealing with skyrocketing vacancy rates and bad economy; workplace ethics, and how parents should explain their children what is going on with the economy and why one or both parents have lost jobs or filed bankruptcy.
I agree with the importance of the informing programs. Knowledge is always strength and stability in future when we attend schools. Many years of teaching and counseling made me expert on this topic. There is one thing that scares people and forces them to think about possible end of the world in the nearest future, when they are told that the whole world is already “in a shaky boat in the middle of deep global crises”. Everyone who has brains asks with fear, “Where do we float? Can we reach the firm land again?” Such thoughts and concerns do not bring inner peace, strength and creativity in order to make the right decisions. It’s the test for all the mankind.
I doubt that only the knowledge about dramatically increased numbers of closed businesses, unemployment, financially unstable families, who applied for state support, transferring kids from private to public schools, broken marriages, abortions, and the worst – suicide will help today at least one family to get peace and well-being in the house foreclosure?
What should we do with the increased and decreased numbers during the complicated period of life? How does this knowledge alone prevent filing bankruptcy, if there is no more business, as business? Where to look for job and how to find quickly the same managerial position in order to sustain mortgage and car payments? Even so, you try to get rid of the second car in the family at this hard time, who will take your leased car earlier than the term of your agreement?
I did not find in a list of suggested show topics a single one that can positively influence today or tomorrow the minds and hearts of people, bringing them in the state of a relative enlightenment. The political and economic experts give us different reasons why it has happened and predict another difficult year. They sound well-acknowledged, but where were all these specialists and experts two-three years ago?
Those readers who were patient enough to come to this paragraph will read some diverse or unusual interpretation of Global downturn and loss of previous stability in vitally important spheres of human life – economic, spiritual, financial, and political.
In which of named above spheres our modern society failed initially and seriously for the last twenty years? You are right – in true spirituality. I did not say that we stopped attending churches, synagogues or mosques. Do our children and grandchildren attend the churches on the regular bases? Why do we do this? What is the reason of going there? We like to be present at church services, meet our friends weekly, chat with them, while drinking coffee after the service, and go home. Isn’t it nice? It is just pleasant routine.
Do we do it for our soul, heart and mind? Do we go there for cleansing of all dust that was generated by our depressive thoughts during the week? Do we come to the House of our Father to get rid of contamination and dirt that we attracted for a week? Do we come to confession regularly and sincerely repent in our sins? Do we enter the house of the Lord to share with Him and Holy Spirit our happiness, success and concerns? Do we feel the presence of our Father there? Do we believe that He is waiting for us to come? Many people follow some religious rituals, but do not experience heartfelt spirituality. Where is faith, if people forget start and finish the day with praising the Lord? The connection with the Divinity is so weak that the necessity to talk/pray to our Father, Son and Holy Spirit does not exist. In the morning, we jump in the car with a cup of coffee and empty heart, mind and soul. How can He bless this emptiness for a day?
The energetic vibration of a prayer upraises along the invisible, but ever existing soul cord to the Divinity. It is like the bell, we start praying and the Universe hears us; that’s why it is better to sound without deceit for receiving the blessed answer from Above that will attune our vitality. Without divine adjustment we cannot obtain our inner peace and real blessedness. Who of us experiences a state of bliss, at least once in a while? Are you familiar with this sensation? What can be better than feeling happy without justifiable reason?
What did most of the people think about not far than five-six years ago? Human mind processed the same thoughts - business, income, shopping and leisure. People worked hard in order constantly improve the quality of life and purchase everything they wanted. Who needed God, if all the desired things they could obtain with fair or not so fair financial manipulations? Did money bring them bliss? No, it didn’t. It was alarming to observe: the highest level of material life did prevent people from depression, diseases and suicide. Creating heaven on earth with money instead of God, they could not find inner peace, health and happiness. Drugs and alcohol further deteriorated human life, health and family relationship. Working as a healthcare practitioner, I had the opportunity to learn the subject that I described. There was one common cause – lost connection with the Divinity. When human individuals do not sustain their connection with the Divinity, they lose inner peace, joy, happiness, realization of dreams, health, and very often assets, investing them in a sinkhole.
God forbid, if this happened just to you and me, but if the downturn affected all the mankind? Our patient Creator watched us for a long time, waiting for human intent to restore the connection with the Divinity. People did not praise Him for whatever they achieved in their life. Everything that people were blessed with was taken for granted and without any appreciation, being certain that it had occurred because they were so bright, well-educated, obnoxious or lucky. If so, nobody owed Him anything, even appreciation.
Today, the Creator gives us a chance to elevate our consciousness, enlighten our mind and restore the connection with Him through the growing faith. That is why He put the whole mankind without discriminating of any nation or nationality into the same boat and exhorted us in a dangerous journey. He believes that under new life circumstances, His children will return to Him, looking for His mercy, support and love. Only with God all things are possible, only with Him we can quickly succeed.
Stay always blessed,

I read multiple reviews on my books and in most of them I haven’t found the complete understanding of the main ideas: why the trilogy was introduced to the world at the time of global downturn? Why did I decide to describe the true life of a real person in whirlpool of distressing events of the previous century? What did I want to illustrate with the life example of the main character? What made Maria able to survive in life threatening situations? Was it only her personal intellectual and physical strength that made her a survivor? Definitely, it was not. She kept a strong bond with the Divinity and her faith saved her in the most dangerous situations.
It is a life story of my mother-in-law. The historical and personal events are accurate, as to the dates and hours. I have verified some of the calendar data from mother Maria’s journals and concluded that the life-threatening events were engraved in her memory forever. Maria was the best example of faith and surviving for her family and friends. She believed that during the human life, nearly every person underwent some kind of hardships. She was sure that the Universe tests us that way. She gave us clear answers, why the same challenging situation could strengthen the willpower of one person and completely destroy another one and why “another one” was unable to pass the test of life and preferred death. The knowledge she left saved our lives and helped us in saving the lives of many other people.
Holding my breath, I listened to my mother-in-law’s stories. She introduced me to the reality of her life. At that time, I was a young atheist and used to ask the silliest questions, “Please, tell me the truth, what kept you alive? Who guided you to escape the death? Who assisted you to survive in such a dangerous situation?” She looked at me with a smile and answered in one word, “The Savior.”
Now I know that she has been absolutely right. When nobody and nothing is able to help, we ask our Father to resolve the situation. We hope that we’ll be helped. Faith and Hope keep people alive. While writing a non-fiction book in alternate history I set 3 objectives:
I. To remind people the events of the WWII, as an example of global tragedy of the previous century. More than 72 million people were killed. We should remember this number in order to avoid reiteration of history.
II. My second book of the trilogy describes Maria’s home-coming to her family estate in 1946. At that time my mother-in-law was pregnant with her first child, an elder brother of my husband. The KGB forced her husband and her to undergo horrible experiences in her native land. I want people to be cautious and protect the democratic structure of the human society. None of the countries should repeat the history of the USSR. 20 million soviet people were killed in the WWII, but Stalin repressions annihilated more than 40 million innocent victims.
III. Awakening of faith is the third objective in writing of the trilogy. To my mind, it is the most important subject at the present time.
Why is the faith so important in nowadays life? When the God creates people, He supplies us with the enlightened souls that forever keep the interconnection with the Divinity. How do we maintain this everlasting connection? It’s very simple – through our sincere prayers.
What nourishes the human soul? Our true faith. What happens with human soul, if there is no proper and regular nourishment? The human body becomes a torturing prison for a pure soul. The soul suffers, making the person depressed and miserable.
What happens to a person whose soul is neglected for a long time? He or she loses inner peace, happiness and joy. It’s the initial symptoms of a malnourished soul. It’s the right time for life-style changes.
What happens, if the person does not pay attention at the necessity for changes? Then the individual becomes selfish, close-minded, easily upset, constantly irritable, mean, angry, and jealous. The darkness pulls the individual to its side when he/she loses the Creator’s light of the soul. Nearly everyone witnesses the changes of personalities in our family members, friends and colleagues. Thank God, I observed the enlightening of the souls more frequent than the darkening.
What can help to prevent the negative changes? A sincere prayer to the Lord with repentance of sins is #1 medicine for release of the heart-breaking nervous tension, as well as prevention of psycho-emotional and physical disorders. As mother Maria taught us, “Remember, you are children of God. Your age means nothing in comparison with the age of the Father Almighty. You can cry while praying. It means the cleansing of your soul.”
What happens later, if the person does not implore to the Lord? A disturbing question arises: “Why me? Why am I unhappy in my personal relationships? Why am I unsuccessful in professional life? Why is my friend happier and more prosperous than me?” When these questions appear in your mind, it means you experience depressive tendencies. Try to answer to the very first question in this way, “Why not me? What did I do in order to prevent the contamination and exhaustion of my soul?” Listen to the answer. The Creator is merciful and you’ll immediately receive it.
Analyze your inner condition, asking, “Where am I now? Who am I closer to?” At the beginning of the human era, the world underwent the divisions for holy and evil, good and bad, white and black, positive and negative, healthy and sick, etc. If you allow yourselves to be depressed, I doubt that you are close to the Lord. Ask yourself, “Do I want to lose my soul and disappear in the darkness?” Listen to the answer. Learn to listen not only to your mind, but to your soul, as well. Stay connected to the Creator and Savior. Do your best for enlightenment of your soul, mind and body.

Our Creator is merciful and gives us all the opportunities for enlightenment of souls and minds, strengthening physical bodies and mental health. As it was mentioned in the previous article, people need to keep strong bond with the Divinity for creating and sustaining the bio-energetic and bio-chemical balances within the body. I must say that not only the physical concepts are so important. I’ll explain it a little bit further.
The experience that I accumulated for twenty years in our holistic practice confirmed that great amount of modern people are not ready to restore their steady connection with the Divinity. Many of the God’s children of different ages tried to be “independent, rebellious and self-sufficient by no means (honest or deceitful)”. They wanted to be successful, healthy and happy without Father’s blessing and supportive input. They took a risk, investing time, assets and strength in something falsehearted that did not succeed at the end. The multiple unfaithful projects failed, bringing our clients severe emotional distress. People should not wait until the situation is dangerously aggravated to the emotional collapse, physical failure, project fiasco, and financial crash?
What kept our clients apart from the Creator? The answer is apparent – contamination of the soul with negative energy or painful emotions, atheistic influences, sins and fear to be connected to somebody, who sees and reaches us in any place of our existence, and phobia to lose freedom of thoughts, deeds and words, especially when they are not decent.
Majority of our clients tried to restore their deteriorated health with taking handfuls of drugs, undergoing different surgical treatments, radiation and chemo-therapies. All these methods always failed with the individuals whose souls were seriously neglected and darkened. As a rule, the individual of this type lost the spiritual balance of a human being long time ago and, as a chain reaction, his/her bio-energetic and bio-chemical balances of the body were also destroyed. The unfaithful life-style contaminated the mind, soul and body to the level of serious health or mental disorder.
The healing starts from detoxification of the soul, mind and body and restoration of the spiritual, bio-energetic and bio-chemical balances of the individual. If you are not purified and the destroyed balances are not restored, there is no rejuvenation of health to its full extend. So, what are the initial steps to healing? How does the strengthened bond with the Divinity affect the entire human being?
You restore the damaged connection with the Higher source of energy and life through regular/daily spiritual activities - meditations/praying and sincere repentance in sin(s). It does not matter that you committed the wrong deeds long time ago, but your consciousness marked them, as sins, and engraved them in your memory. These spiritual activities allow you to release the negative energy, which was generated by you or picked up at the moment of wrong deed, and re-charge it with the positive one from the Higher source. Re-charging of the soul with God’s energy purifies your soul and reinstates its glow and vibration with improvement of inner strength/peace.
Why do we need inner strength? Inner strength/peace helps us to get rid of fears, uncertainty, dissatisfaction, depression, as well as disturbing feelings. Very soon, you stop blaming the fate, beloved, friends, colleagues, circumstances and even the Creator for your miserable life or misfortune.
The sincere praying restores the light and vibration of the soul. It promotes its transformation. A strong healthy vibration of the soul due to constant recharging of vital force energy assist people to get rid of fatigue condition of mind and body. It increases their mental and physical productivity. God’s blessing that comes to us during the meditation supplies us with bliss, inner peace and creativity.
The insufficient level of vital force energy affects the vitally important functions of the body, starting with:
a. Digestion of foods
b. Assimilation/absorption of nutrients from the intestines
c. Elimination of toxic metabolic waste from the body
With depletion of these vitally important functions, the process of body intoxication begins. It leads to overload of the liver, kidneys and lymphatic system with toxic metabolic waste. Usually, weight gain starts at this level. If the connection with the Divinity is not restored and the level of bio-energy is still low then the immune system stops working and the process of natural body detoxification subsides. It leads to the liver and kidneys disorders, circulatory/heart stresses, elevation of blood pressure, deterioration of concentration and memory, cell degeneration, cell mutation and formation of the cancerous cells on subatomic level.
When the Lord gave me this understanding and opportunity to test with great result the process of complete detoxification (simultaneously: soul, mind and body) on myself, I felt necessary to share my knowledge with other people. I believe that I was blessed with discovery the major cause of health and mental disorders at the present time, and the justification why not everyone can be healed.
Being a nutrition counselor, I implemented meditation/prayer technique in individual Nutritional programs of my clients. Here are the steps to complete healing. With God all things are possible.
* Restoration of faith.
* Rejuvenation of soul, inner strength/peace and creativity.
* Strengthening of vital force energy, physical endurance and productivity.
* Restoration of vitally important physiological functions: digestion of foods, assimilation of nutrients and elimination of metabolic waste.
* Intensive detoxification of soul, mind and body. Do not procrastinate! The time might be limited. Restoration of bio-energetic balance of the body.
* Restoration of bio-chemical balance of the body.
* Strengthening of the immune system.
So, what is the fundamental basis in creating of inner peace, health and success in all the times and under all the circumstances? Awakening of faith and restoration of our in-born, genuine connection with the Divinity.
