    Jill i personally find your videos inspiring, but i never found a photo
    of yours during your so called stroke. I am a male who now is 51
    years. In 2017 february 9th a had a stroke. A brainstem stroke. I had a
    headache since october 2016. At the Maasstad hospital Rotterdam,they
    made 2 mri scans and they could not find anything. In late january 2017,
    they found (after a 2 color ct scan) that in my brain the blood flows
    in one certain vein, both side. During that time my bp and blood sugar
    was always oke. Still my bp and blood sugar is oke. But now i am
    paralyzed on my right side and i have difficulties with my speech too.
    Every day i work on my own and every week i get physiotherapy of one
    hour at home.

    I bought A stroke of Insight 10 years ago. It appeared interesting. Life passed by quickly, I had major health issues and have finally recovered enough to find me again. I picked that book off the shelf yesterday! I had to learn more about this amazing woman and here I am! I Love this dynamic woman. I have been doing creative things lately and her suggestion to do that affirms that I will be alright! Utmost respect for Jill.๐Ÿค—

    Love Jillโค Jill made me understand the real teaching of the Bible.
    I will be sitting on the right side of my father ( pineal gland conscious mind awareness of being that I am).
    Cast all your fish net to the right side of the boat.
    Could it be that the Bible is a anatomy book about 2 consciousness, the left side which is Lucifer and the right side which is Jesus. I hope that people will understand the book one day.

    Hi Jill, sometime ago I had encephalitis that nearly wiped me off the map, where at that stage, my life flash before my eyes as if i was watching a video in fast motion. There was more that i did not understand, but after some 30 odd years i have and still have glimpses of the future. I am still leaning to be normal, but it is hard because i have to hide this from those closest to me as they think I am mad. I now see the world in such a clearer light.

    I accidentally made the discovery that the main hemisphere of the brain is always lower when the head is tilted. When the head is tilted to the right side, the chelovek behaves like a Subjective Humanitarian Extrovert, and when the head is tilted to the left side, it behaves like the Objective Introvert Technician.
    I have shown only three opposites, but I know a lot and can determine which word refers to which hemisphere of the brain. I have not learned English yet and if you are interested and you can help me tell in English the discoveries that are known to me – write me on Facebook: Vadim Petker

    I have a big old house of a brain but only choose to live in one room in it. What a beautiful tragedy to be kicked out of your box.
