About the Author
Acaysha, an old soul, came into this lifetime with several missions. Born perfect and whole, at the age of two, a "bad batch" of measles vaccine caused brain damage, which led to 22 years of epilepsy, averaging 3-5 major seizures per month. This did not stop her though from becoming the "Poster Child for Epilepsy," riding horses, swimming and performing gymnastics in competition, water skiing and anything else she was told she could "not" do! Then, in the fall of 1992 at the age of 25, her seizure rate jumped to 22 in one month, along with anxiety attacks, pushing her to quit and "just curl up at home."
Desperately fighting to get the seizures under control, Acaysha found a fantastic answer and chose to undergo experimental brain surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona, to remove the portions of her brain that were damaged, in an attempt to stop the seizures. She made a deal with God: "Take away my seizures and I'll work for you as a healer, minister, counselor and inspiration to others." Well, the surgery successfully ended the epilepsy, but left Acaysha with the mind and the emotions of a two year old, and the hidden memories of an adult. She experienced hallucinations induced by medications, and the struggle to mature into adulthood, all over again, on her own, without any hands-on instructions or guidance.
For the next ten years, she matured very quickly from 2 to 34 years old, due to her fighting attitude that she could achieve any challenge or goal put before her. Her motto was that life needed to be lived with gusto and with no holding back. Along the way, she experienced migraines for 16 straight months in a row, anxiety attacks, and constant bi-polar swings of superwoman highs and deep, dark depressions that led to several attempted suicides. But each time, some type of intervention occurred; a friend's helping hand; a psyche ward counselor's straight forward words; guidance from professional therapists; books, tapes and seminars that gave her hope; and especially conversations with God and her Angels that helped put her back on earth when she wanted to leave. She agreed to be a leader in great achievements and went on to obtain an AA degree in retail marketing and a Bachelor's degree in marketing, both with honors, as well as her own make-up image consulting and clothing line business.
Then one day, in a quiet moment on the computer, she met her angels... all seven of them, who told her they were there to teach her; to live and grow and laugh and play. With their help, she survived the emotional, near death effects of a miscarriage; experienced a miracle spiritual healing when the organs in her body shut down by 80%; lived through a major car accident that left her bleeding internally and another car accident that gave her a whiplash; endured being the victim of three major work related accidents of falling objects on top of her head, shoulders and arms; and then was told she had six months to live due to uterine cancer, that was instantly healed in the last month, during a dream conversation with God. The results were confirmed by her medical Doctor and are documented as a miracle healing.
Acaysha, is an angelic name that means "Angel of Diversity and Strength." Today, Acaysha, with the help of her band of seven, is also an angel to many people in need, counseling them and giving them healing, hope, and inspiration to keep on living, no matter how tough the going gets. Her story uplifts not only epileptics, but also anyone who is trying to cope with an illness or disability, or anyone who is just down and out, discouraged and depressed. Acaysha's dream is to become a national speaker like Zig Ziglar, helping to heal others through her life stories and survival experiences, and to create an "all inclusive holistic center" where people can find natural answers to their health problems and concerns.
