UPDATE: )November 4, 2019)
Stephanie is moving out of the rehab hospital this week, which is a major step forward. Your thoughts, prayers, and kindness have really made a difference. It will be sometime before Stephanie can resume work, and she does not have any other source of income. To those of you who have made a contribution on the gofundme site, Stephanie is so very grateful to you for your support, as it has allowed her to cover her expenses and focus on healing and wholing so she could move out of acute and rehab care.
For those who have been through a major illness or health crisis, you know that it is this last mile-the period between release from acute care to recovery-is a long and often lonely journey. Your assistance is still needed, and if you can spare anything, it would help. Stephanie has made use of the experience she is going through, and has many gifts to share with us when she is able to. One thing she has gained is how to receive help from others, and the other is to fully trust the experience she is going through.
None of us is really separate from another. Stephanie has the unique and singular ability to speak directly to our higher Selves, in a way that we can hear it and apply the wisdom as our own. I have been missing her voice sorely over the past two months, as many have. Let's do what we can to help her get back on her feet. Thank you so much for your consideration, compassion, and generosity.
Love, love, love//
UPDATE (October 18, 2019)
Stephanie is recovering slowly but surely and she has made it to the rehab facility where she is learning to walk and breathe again in a fully coordinated way. It will take a bit more time... Maybe 2-3 weeks, if all goes well. She is eager to get back to all of you, and she promises she will meet you all where the heart is... right in the middle of the field.
She is SOOO heartened by all the Love and support. She insists it is the strength that is helping her to recover and return to wholeness.
Gratitude doesn't cover it... All the Grace and Love and Light is being received by Stephanie as pure sustenance...
She thanks you all, and she will see you very soon.
Stephanie Azaria is a remarkable individual who has helped hundreds of thousands of people gain Self-awareness and Self-realization. For some, she has provided information that helped address an emotional crisis, and for others, crucial guidance on living a whole and purposeful life. For many she is a treasured spiritual teacher and mentor, and for others, a trusted voice that provides hope and clarity. Devoted to a life of service, Stephanie has used astrology as a means to help those who reach out to her.
Since 1999 she has posted daily and weekly guidance on her website The cosmicpath.com , and in more recent years through Instagram and Patreon. Recently she has been working on a seminal book describing the system of Self-realization she has created, Cosmic Consciousness, which is a practical means for working to realize our higher Self on a daily basis. Those who have read her work or had a session with her know that they have received wisdom and compassionate care of the highest order. Meeting Stephanie was a life-changing event for me, and she has facilitated my growth in ways I never could have imagined for myself and also for my family.
About five weeks ago Stephanie experienced a sudden recurrence of a serious autoimmune condition that progressively shut down her lungs and kidneys. She became life-threateningly ill and has now been in the hospital intensive care unit for over three weeks. Now that she is breathing on her own again, she has just been moved out of the ICU. She will be in the hospital for a while longer and then moved, if possible, to a rehabilitation facility. At this time Stephanie cannot yet stand up or walk. This is the result of the massive impact on her body. It is her next big challenge, and if you have been praying for her or sending Love and healing, this is a good place to focus. The good news is that her body is responding to treatment and the long-term outlook is encouraging.
However, for the short-term, Stephanie needs our collective assistance.
Many may not realize it, but Stephanie has not taken a break from writing for the Cosmicpath.com, doing readings, teaching, holding retreats, or public speaking for over 19 years. This level of dedication is rare, and it is because Stephanie is devoted to a mission of service to others. Some may have noticed that she has not posted anything on the cosmicpath.com for about five weeks now. This is because she has been unable to do so. Communication about what happened and her condition was not possible until the prognosis about the state of her health was understood by her physicians and worked through with her family. Not being able to share with all of you -- her readers, students, clients, and friends -- has been distressing to Stephanie as it is not her style. As she would say-“I am a Libra you know!” Relationships and co-creating a new Self-realized conscious reality with others is her life’s work and passion. Her loyalty to all of us is nothing short of astonishing, and she needs the same back from us.
Stephanie truly needs our help now. Because she has not been able to work for over five weeks, she has no substantial income coming in. The cost of her medical treatment now and for the next few months needs to be covered, as well as her regular life costs. Stephanie has always greatly undercharged for her services, as her intent was to make herself accessible to everyone who was interested and especially to those in need. She has no reserves to fall back on. If Stephanie has made a difference in your life—as a reader, a recipient of a reading, a student, friend, or colleague, or if you have never met her, but are inspired by her, please consider contributing to this Go Fund Me, not just once, but on a regular basis if you can until Stephanie is able to work again.
Stephanie wants to thank her amazing support system, her Teacher, her family and friends, colleagues, clients and students, and all who have already expressed so much amazing Love and Light to help facilitate her healing process. Stephanie would like you to know that she misses you all and her work so much and she looks forward to a complete recovery in order to return to the mission of her work and her book and serving you all.
For myself, what Stephanie has given me is so precious, I wanted to have a way of giving to her at a time when she most needs support. If you feel the same, please consider donating now. If you can make it recurring, please do so. Thank you for your kind and generous attention and Love, Love, Love to you all.
