I have known Yasmeen for years as a friend and a healer. This podcast is a reflection of her offering the gifts of healing, awareness, and consciousness to her audience which I predict will continue to grow. These conversations feature some of the most talented and dedicated practitioners in the field energy, healing, and conscious awareness, all of whom bring a sincere desire to help us all navigate this odd and challenging time in our history. Her content is relevant, her guests are wonderful and talented agents of positive change, and I look forward to seeing what talent and content she'll bring to us in the future. I would recommend Gateways to anyone interested in truly exploring themselves and the world we live in. Hats off Yasmeen. Very well done. - Michael

Connecting with your highest superhuman self With Caroline Cory 

On today’s episode, I speak with Caroline Cory - futurist, a visionary author and the founder of the OMnium Method™. Even though Caroline completed graduate studies in Psychology with a minor in Philosophy, most of her knowledge and deeper awareness came about through direct experience, which she talks about in her books and courses.

Caroline's encounter with the worlds of Consciousness, Energy Medicine and Spirituality started at the early age of 5 when she spontaneously began to perceive various forms of subtle energy.

She could experience and understand more deeply the cosmic roadmap and the structure of consciousness, the multi-dimensional configuration of the human body and mind as well as the construct of earthly reality.
In healing, this method raises the cells’ vibration through resonance, which in turn allows the cellular DNA reprogramming and the healing to occur organically.

You can check out: www.omniumuniverse.com

We talk about the following and so much more:
✅ What it means to connect to Source, or our Higher Self
✅ How do we activate our sixth sense and become more intuitive
✅ What is the purpose of our relationships? Why do we have them?
✅ How she works with people, and what some of the ways she helps people reconnect with their intuition
✅ What is remote viewing, and some of the experiments that she learned in the film Superhuman
✅ What telekenisis? How are we all connected?
✅ Why do you think we are here on this earth? Is there such a thing as karma?
✅ The film she directed - A Tear in the Sky - about UFO’s and what she learned from the film
