“Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”  ― C.G. Jung

 The seriousness of the subject surrounding life-and-death-dreams on the Dr. Oz Show reflected in the intense body language of the live studio audience.  The viewers of The Sixth Sense: Shocking Premonitions That Saved Lives were so focused on my story of angelic dreams, you could have heard an ant sneeze.

However, when my B-roll video played, they nodded and awwed with laughter over Fe-licks my Siamese cat filmed in bed with me during the horrifying nightmare sequence.  Fe-licks got so much positive reaction Dr. Oz used him twice during the TV segment which aired January 3o, 2017, during the coveted “Sweeps” aka Neilson Ratings.

The phone call came during October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  How Prophetic!  When researching guests for a segment on dreams, the Oz producers came across my website videos promoting how dreams had diagnosed my cancer.

It had been missed three times by the medical community and the tests on which they relied.  They saw my videos concerning miraculous dreams and healing, my book, and participation in Dr. Larry Burk’s Research on breast cancer patients whose dreams had diagnosed their illness.  The producers asked to use the condensed five minute video for my featured segment.

The tables were turned as Oz Productions had to sign a release form to use my video as the B-roll.  In film and television production, B-roll, B roll, or Broll is supplemental footage intercut with the main shot.  Mine was used as flashbacks before the live audience for their taped reaction during the airing of the Dr. Oz Show.

In the B-roll, Fe-licks, my Siamese cat, had caught their eye and captured their heart.  As a creature of habit, he had climbed into bed with me despite all the strangers and video cameras in the bedroom.

As far as he was concerned, it was another snuggle nap time.  This was a fitting tribute to his attentiveness to me during my treatments.  By purring loudly beside my head, he would quiet the ringing in my ears known as tinnitus, a frequent side effect of pharmaceuticals.

My interview on The Dr. Oz Show about Precognitive Dreams was taped before a live audience.

The audience was riveted by my story of spirit guides, angel feathers, and hooded monks who entered my dreams through Sacred Dream Doors to impart life-saving information.  I wrote a WVM column about them a little while back, 5 Easy Steps to Enter Your Sacred Dream Doors – VIDEO.

Yes, miracles still happen in our lives and dreams do come true.

In one dream, an angel feather was given to me to use as a sword to verbally fence with my doctors and cut through hospital policy.

However, when Fe-licks was seen snuggled under the covers, head lifted by concern for me on the pillow next to mine, as I re-enacted a nightmare sequence, the audience went nuts.  Dr. Oz used it twice during the show’s broadcast.

Fe-licks upstaged me and ran away with the hearts of Dr. Oz, the producers,  and the audience.

My Precognitive Dreams were Lucid Dreams that came true and validated by medical reports which Dr. Oz held in his hand. He showed them to the audience and explained on film how he had spoken with my doctors to confirm their authenticity.

Watch for my second article, The Sixth Sense: Shocking Premonitions Dreams that Saved Lives next month in WVM.  I will share the validating video from my plastic surgeon Dr. Helen Colen requested by Dr. Oz.  My surprise came when I learned Dr. Helen Colen was so sought-after as a medical resource she had also been a guest on the Oprah Winfrey Show.

My multiple segments of the Dr. Oz Show were legally purchased and are available for your viewing enjoyment on my website.  Here’s one video.

Driving Lessons For Life by Jim R. Jacobs, LCSW

Driving Lessons for Life is a collection of short and inspiring stories about change, self-improvement, leadership, and becoming a better person. It is about strengthening individuals, marriages, families, the workplace, and all of our relationships. Author Jim R. Jacobs takes the common experiences of car drivers and applies them to our daily lives, asking readers to rev up their hearts and minds to achieve a smoother ride, whether you’re already sailing along with your cruise control on or maneuvering life’s potholes.

Filled with car metaphors, hot rod memories, deep insights, and rear-view mirror humor, this book will teach you what your driving instructor never did, from what not to do in the car wash to the history behind giving someone the bird. Best of all, the car metaphors will make you recall the lessons in these pages every time you get in a vehicle and drive down the road. Because cars are an integral part of our daily life, those frequent reminders will result in lasting change. You’ll drive more safely, appreciate others more, experience less road rage, and take more time to sing in the car. The joy ride awaits you on the first page.  BUY HERE

Kat Kanavos - Soul

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” ― Benjamin Franklin

November is Cancer Prevention Month and National Caregiver Month. Perhaps we should be our own caregivers by taking the necessary steps to prevent cancer.

Aggressive cancer often begins in a pre-cancerous form that is curable with minimal medical treatment; and in some cases, it can reverse itself without being conventionally treated at all.


WVM November 2015 Kat SOUL ImageReverse Pre-Cancer with a Lifestyle or Diet Change

Healthy change allows the body’s immune system to do its ‘thing’… fight off illness and keep you healthy. Perhaps, you are in fact preventing full blown cancer.

Prevent Cancer by Listening to Your Body

Signs and symptoms tell us something is right or wrong. When your car begins to overheat, it is a sign that something is not right with the automobile. A symptom may be a burning odor. The result from ignoring these symptoms may be a complete breakdown. Early awareness and response to your gages can result in replacing the oil rather than the car.

The same advice holds true for your body.

In this month’s video I speak with Barrie-Louise Switzen, Executive Producer & Moderator of The Woman’s Connection® TV Show in Manhattan, New York.

During the video Barrie-Louise says, “Listening to her gut and staying true to her instincts against all odds saved Kathleen (Kat) O’Keefe-Kanavos’s life. Listen how she fought the doctors who wouldn’t listen, until they finally agreed for more tests. Surviving stage four breast cancer, she is here to share her story and guide us through our dreams.”

The TV show can also be seen on Manhattan Neighborhood Network while it streams October 5th and 19th, 2015 on FIOS 36, RCN 85 TWC 67 7 1998.

Use Your Dreams to Help Prevent Illness

Dreams are the way our physician-within can warn us of impending health problems and suggest changes for a healthy future. I survived three bouts of cancer by paying attention to her dreams and insisting on further diagnostic procedures despite the erroneous conclusions of doctors and the tests on which they relied. Warning dreams were my ‘caregivers’ that prevented a third very early cancer from becoming a malignant problem.

My warning dreams have now been researched professionally and found to be a positive factor in early detection, treatment, and possible prevention.

How Accurate are these Healing Dreams?

My experience with warning dreams is described in my best-selling book Surviving Cancerland: Intuitive Aspects of Healing, on NBC News’ Segment; Sneaky Medical Billing, and Coast to Coast AM Radio with host George Noory.

These articles and more can be read, heard in radio interviews, and seen on video in my SOUL columns in Women’s Voices Magazine. Review all of my columns by clicking here.

Medical Study Results

I was one of 20 women featured in the article “Warning Dreams Preceding the Diagnosis of Breast Cancer: A Survey of the Most Important Characteristics” by Larry Burk, M.D., which appears in the May–June 2015 issue of Explore: The Journal of Science and Healing.

The study reported that warning dreams of breast cancer were often life-changing experiences that prompted medical attention leading directly to diagnosis. The most common characteristics of the dreams were:

A sense of conviction about their importance                         

More vivid, real, or intense than usual

An emotional sense of threat or dread

Use of the specific words “breast cancer or tumor”

A sense of physical contact with the breast.

I learned that paying attention to one’s dreams and asserting yourself can save your life. You know when a dream is prophetic if you can validate it with facts. I often said to my doctors, ‘Prove me wrong.’ The tests they performed to prove me wrong proved I was right and validated my dreams.

Write your dreams in a dream journal beside your bed. If you have a daytime vision or waking-dream episode, write it down. I had dreams, seven years apart that communicated that the doctors were wrong. Each time a different dream told me to go back to the doctor and insist on more tests. I am still alive today because I paid attention to those dreams.

It’s important to remember your dreams, pay attention to your intuition, and be your own caregiver. Work with your doctors, financiers, coworkers, bosses, and family, but always remember that the final decisions in life are yours to make.

Be your own caregiver by listening to your dreams, making healthier choices and by paying attention to your body’s signs and symbols. These three things can help prevent illness, especially cancer, and allow you to live a more fulfilled life.

“I wish I knew then what I know now about standing in your power and speaking your truth.” – Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos

Does your soul communicate with your brain?

On Souls Talking Brain, Double Goddess Roni Lipstein and Aline Ohannessian welcome three-time Cancer Survivor and Educator Kathleen (Kat) O’Keefe-Kanavos. In this video episode, Kat speaks about the importance of being your own advocate by listening to yourself, understanding your dream language, staying true to your inner guidance, and standing up to others to ensure you are being heard and receiving the assistance you require.

Intuition feels like it belongs to us, although it appears to have a mind of its own. It comes to our awareness when our conscious mind steps aside and lets the subconscious mind take over. It often happens when we are ‘mind-ful’ and ‘mind-empty’ at the same time. This is a state of being obtained in lucid dreams, prayers, and meditations.

It is also called inner wisdom, inner guidance, insight, instinct, sixth sense, gut feelings, or hunches. We use these words to describe how it is we know things, without knowing how or why we know them. This marvelous inner wisdom seems to come from deep within our being

You are made up of so much more than id, ego, and superego. You have aspects of your inner-selves that directly connect to inner guidance and spiritual guidance. It is responsible for success, failure, and fulfilling our life destiny and staying on the path of life we decided upon before being born. Connecting with your inner guidance can be helpful in all aspects of your life.

We often take ourselves for granted. We tell others how much they mean to us and how much we love them. Then, we wait for them to reply with equal devotion.

However, how Often do You Tell Yourself how Much You Love You?

How important is self-love? You can exist on this earth plane without anyone else, except yourself. Think about that fact for a moment. You may be more important than you realize.

By loving yourself, you ensure you are providing for your optimal homeostasis on all levels of your multi-dimensional ‘Beingness.’

We explore the following ideas, points, and beliefs in this video interview.

How do we know we have Spirit Guides? Where do they live? How can we connect with them, and why should we?

What are the benefits of accessing and embracing your Spirit Guides?

What can our Spirit Guides do for us, and why would they?

What is life with inner guidance versus life as ‘Dust in the Wind?’
