A Support Program for People with Chronic and Critical Illness
The Six Stages of Healing from the Inside Out Program is based on the personal experience of Guruatma K Khalsa who has dealt with a serious, rare and relapsing autoimmune disease throughout her adult life. Using both modern and alternative medicine, and incorporating the yogic lifestyle, she overcame the challenges and lifted herself up and into a state of health and well-being.
Using that background as a foundation, Guruatma worked with Business Consultant and author Ek Ong Kaar K Khalsa and with author Jeannette Darcy to co-create the blueprint for the Six Stages of Healing from the Inside Out Program. GuruGian K Khalsa, Kelly Indra Inselmann, Joyce Anderson and Vince Darcy served as contributing editors.

Six Stages of Healing From The Inside Out
Stage One: Am I Really Sick?
All I know is what I feel.
All the people in my life evaluate and understand the circumstance I am challenged by from their own point of view.
Is there a medical diagnosis that matches what I am experiencing?
Stage Two: Diagnosis
My life is drastically changing.
I am not my diagnosis and the choices I make in the moment are the only things I can control.
I learn to research, get in the door and move through the networks of my country’s medical systems.
I learn to incorporate alternative medicine and pain management techniques.
The condition that I am challenged by offers me an opportunity to evaluate the journey of my soul.
Stage Three: Living With Chronic & Critical Illness
I pay attention to my Self and give myself credit for facing this heavy challenge.
I manage the discipline of taking prescription drugs.
I receive the support of caregivers and tap into support groups and organizations that can help me.
I acknowledge that the relationships in my life are shifting.
Awareness of my Spirt & soul keeps growing.
Stage Four: Episodes of Intense Sickness
The suffering is true.
Quality of Life issues are my top priority.
I can find one thing to be grateful for today.
Stage Five: Facing Death
My fear of death is normal and it is what I need to face now.
I work to release my attachments.
I get my personal and legal affairs in order, asking for help if I need it.
I create an altar in honor of my death and refer to it for inspiration.
Stage Six: Re-Entry
I accept that my life is permanently changed by the course of this illness.
I create and commit to a daily health routine that works for me.
I allow myself to continue to heal and transform at the soul level.
“I feel better. I am better. And that is my base.”
