Our free wheeling industrial society has forced
us against time. Things are changing quickly as each
moment grows ever more valuable. People want answers,
they want things done fast, and have acquired
a “Quick-Fix Mentality.”

Society’s “Quick-Fix” has become a global pacesetting
phenomenon. Time and money dictate our lives.
People expect instant miracles of relief from our
medical and therapeutic practitioners, pharmaceutical
and other industries. We often hear: “Fix me; give
me a pill”; “The Quick Fix Oil Change”; “Fast Internet
access”; and “Cell phone usage for instant on-the-go
communication.” Without a doubt, the “Quick-Fix
Generation” is alive and functional.

The trend appears evident that people are becoming
more dependent on technology for their own wellbeing.
People depend on pharmaceutical remedies and
pay little attention to prevention and self-healing.
Needless to say, the problem is not being eliminated.
Instead, another band-aid on the symptom has been

Approximately 75% of most physical and emotional
issues can be dealt with by using one’s own intuition
and wisdom. Ironically, “60% of all people who
were prescribed pharmaceutical drugs ended up with
drug-related problems, that result in nearly nine million
hospital admissions a year” (from the book Electrical
Nutrition). These are some of the pitfalls of the
quick-fix society. For an educated society, these are
shameful statistics.

We need to become aware that time, thoughts,
and dealing with our emotions are valuable commodities.
Attention needs to be placed on educating people
as to prevention and self-healing.

There is no ‘right or wrong’ attitude about the
quick-fix. What’s important is the process you use to
create your own experiences. It is matter of choice
whether you live an easy-going or quickened life-style.
It is also your choice on how you decide to self-heal
and deal with your health challenges, or resort to the
pill and become dependent on others. Paramount to
all is your accountability for your decisions.
How does one go about resolving one’s physical
and emotional challenges in this Quick-Fix Generation?
Take a break more often and learn to listen to
your body. Address everyday health and emotional
issues and confront them as they occur. Become more
resilient to self-heal yourself. Bear in mind, that each
event that happens to you carries a message for you
to improve your life. These messages are for you to
heed, to reflect upon, make decisions, and learn from

We encourage you to take charge of your reality
from the inside as well as the outside. Realize that your
outer problems reflect information about your inner
issues. The Universe constantly mirrors your outer
world inwardly, and your inner world outwardly. Remember
this parable:
“What is above, so is below,” the authors add:
“What’s inside is mirrored outside.”

The intent of the Divine Quick-Fix Healings book
focuses on encouraging and giving you the tools to
perform self-healing work, so you can take most matters
of health back into your own hands. You are accountable
to be happy, healthy, and wealthy. Do your
best to deal with your physical, emotional, and mental
health issues. Of course, if you feel uncomfortable
with this, then by all means seek professional advice.
Being quick is not the problem, being caught up
in rapidity is the illusion. When running at full speed,
you can’t count the roses, you can’t hear your inner
joy and perceive your inner beauty, because your eyes
must be glued to what’s before you.

Take a break. Seize the Moment. Quickly catch the
answers. Smell the roses. Listen within. Quickly-fix
your life challenges. Hear the music of Life. Enjoy your
life. You’ll soon understand that Life is like Light—
they both have only one speed. Quickly catch this
