"Truly consider using the four gifts. The promise from Spirit that came through these elders from all over the world is that if you use these you’ll remember how to create harmony and balance in your life and with all others. And we need both of those. We need them inside of ourselves. So what we do is create harmony and balance rather than creating more anger, separation, hurt. All those are natural responses to great pain, I get that. However, if we keep using the gifts, we’ll be able to stay present to the pain and suffering. And I will say, be more drawn, motivated to manifest the peace, the love, the caring of ourselves and each other." - Dr. Anita Sanchez
