Q: Welcome to The Writer's Life, Dr. Korostensky Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and how long you’ve been writing?

 A: I am a former naturopathic doctor and psychologist who worked for over 30 years in private practice. After closing down my former practice in 2005, I now perceive myself as an Inner Flame Rekindler who coach people, in particular, women struggling with new changes. I help them rediscover how to apply their natural intuitive guidance to redirect their path in life for inner peace, true self recognition and succeed on all levels of being with joy. I have been writing for a long time. When I was 13 years old, as a result of my inner yearnings, I wrote a short story about a little girl in search of her place in the world. Although the story was never shown to anyone I kept it. In fact I recently found it again. After that as a teenager I started keeping a journal religiously until the age of 27. I later on wrote articles for several local magazines and women communities. Since branching on to the internet in 2003, I have written several articles that can be found on various article directories. I have also written a few ebooks some of which are available on my coaching website, www.embracingchanges.com

Q: Can you please tell us about your book and why you wrote it? 

A:   My book INTUITION INVOLUTION is a spiritual inspirational book which is written to remind and strongly prompt its readers to fully embrace and integrate intuition into everyday living for a clear, harmonious path in life and a renewed balance in our world.

The book INTUITION INVOLUTION offers several simple, actionable exercises to help readers access their intuition easily. With the help of numerous personal and work related stories, the book underlines the wonderful interventions of intuitive guidance from past and present times.

By demystifying the realm of our intuition, the book explains why women are primarily endowed with a stronger intuition than men, and how women can learn to apply intuition conscientiously to help them overcome self-doubts and easily find the answers to any life’s situation.

The pointed message of Intuition Involution is that each one can become mistress and master of his or her life when we decide to embrace our entire being and integrate all the abilities we were born with fully into our lives, instead of living a lopsided lives and continuously experiencing struggles, fear and disquietudes.

A rude awakening jolted me into writing INTUITION INVOLUTION. After a near death experience in 2005, I practically had to retrace my way back into this life to reclaim my being. Since then my life has never been the same.

Q: What were some of the biggest challenges you faced writing it? 

A: I believe the most challenging part of writing the book was writing my personal stories. This was a little hard for me because it took me to some very private zones within. I felt vulnerable and uncomfortable. It was like bearing my soul to the public. But I kept on hearing that tiny voice that said, just write it all down and so I did. In many ways, that experience has truly humbled me.

Q: Do you have a press kit and what do you include in it? Does this press kit appear online and, if so, can you provide a link to where we can see it? 

A: After checking out numerous examples of press kit from other authors online, I decided to add a press kit page to my book website. The press kit includes a long form bio and a short form bio, about the book, several media photos to use in high resolution, a press release, testimonials and contact information The press kit can be found on my website at: http://www.intuition-involution.com/presskit.html

Q: Have you either spoken to groups of people about your book or appeared on radio or TV? What are your upcoming plans for doing so? 

A: I am currently planning some readings and appearances to present my book at some bookshops and libraries this spring and early summer here in Switzerland.

Q: Do you have an agent and, if so, would you mind sharing who he/is is? If not, have you ever had an agent or do you even feel it’s necessary to have one? 

A: Before launching the book in November 2011, I hired a publicity agent in October and worked with her until early in January 2012. As wasn’t pleased with her, I fired her and I’m currently keeping my eyes and ears open for a new agent. I think that a good public agent can help with media connections and show what works and what doesn’t. They can also offer clear structure for effective promotional work, but only if they know what they are doing.

Q: Did you, your agent or publisher prepare a media blitz before the book came out and would you like to tell us about it? 

A: A media blitz was not actually prepared. But a press release was sent out and other promotional tools were implemented such as the social media.

Q: Do you plan subsequent books? 

A: Yes I do. I am considering a number of other works. As they are still in the early stages I’d rather not divulge any information for the moment. It suffices to say that INTUITION INVOLUTION is not going to be my stalemate on the topic of Intuition

Q: Thank you for your interview, Dr.Korostensky. Would you like to tell my readers where they can find you on the web and how everyone can buy your book?

About Intuition Involution

Book-cover-intuition-involution-199x300Think about this for a moment: What would your life be without a purpose? Would you continue to strive diligently at what you do if you didn’t have a reason to do so? I’m sure you wouldn’t. Neither would I, which is why we have an intuition.
Our intuition maintains the connection with our spiritual origin. It reminds us constantly why we decided to undertake the journey to this Earth plane. It has also been placed in us to guide us throughout this journey so we never feel lonely or alone and are always connected with our origin. It is like having a most reliable friend and ally in our corner to impart us with all the knowledge, support, and information we require and to protect us from any harm or danger. By cutting ourselves off from our intuition, we also sever our connection with our Creator’s all-embracing love and protective power.
No one can deny that despite the multitude number of the world population, many people feel lonely today more than ever before. Why is this? Could it be that because of our “obsession” with the outside world, we have neglected to take care of what is of the most essence to our oneness? Keeping our intuition alive is a great part of maintaining that oneness. The intuition is supposed to keep us alert from within and keep our path illuminated.
We take pride in cleaning out our homes in springtime or taking in our cars for regular servicing or perhaps even ensuring that our bodily functions are kept intact by consulting physicians at regular intervals for a check-up. Yet, how many of us remember to “service” the life core in us by nurturing our intuition regularly and remaining alert?
Could it be that because of the importance we attach to our physical body and the degree to which we identify with it, we have completely become obsessed with it and no longer realize that we are not our bodies? Just think of the amount of time we spend bathing, dressing, and feeding it or caring for it, adorning it, and exercising it. After all, seeing how the fashion industry has cleverly secured a huge value in our lives today, you could say the wackier the industry becomes, the more people are finer matters. Everything we see, touch, and experience daily physically has appeared because it has already formed beforehand elsewhere on a much higher vibratory level.
Our intuition lives in the domain of finer matter where things are unapparent to the physical eyes, physical touch, or senses. A human is made of several layers of various particles: the inner layers of finer bodies consisting of energy constellations of various levels and the denser matter with the physical body and all its organs, nerves, and blood vessels. Just as our physical body has a form and has all the tools it requires to function ultimately in the physical world, so, too, do our other finer bodies have their individual tools for adapting to various conditions. For example, a mental body finer than the physical body is equipped with sensation, whereas a spiritual body consisting of a much finer entity is equipped with the intuition. Intuition is our highest power because it is the spiritual power that animates and fires our soul body housing our spirit core. Spirit is everything. Without the Spirit essence there is no life. The mind does not control our being; the Spirit does.
