81. Childhood War Survivor Guides Healing on the Inside
Mercedes Guzman recalls her childhood self in war-torn El Salvador as, “a dreamer with a passion that could never be defeated.” Rising above the civil war, she moved to the United States. Today she helps people heal their childhood wounds from the inside-out.
How Did You Start Using Your Talents?
Early in life Mercedes recognized she had a gift. “People would come and tell me their stories. I remember as a little child, putting my hands on them and just transmitting joy. I was a very spiritual person, always believing in a Higher Power, in search of something bigger and greater.”
The Most Impactful Turning Point?
There were many along the way from her childhood poverty on the streets of San Miguel to her uncanny gift for seeing opportunities—little miracles—such as getting an excellent free education, working first for an international company, then in the American embassy, where she met her husband and came to the U.S.
The Most Powerful Lessons Learned?
“That your thoughts become your reality. What you say consciously, daily, creates your reality. I learned to observe what I am thinking, feeling and saying, because that will create my reality. It’s not the government, not the economy. It is what you are consistently thinking and saying that creates your reality.”
