Kay Bohlen – Confronting the Unknown

Kay’s life journey has got something big and bright to tell. 

He met Alexandra 30 years ago, at a time when they were both unsure yet of the paths they want to take. They lost sight of each other and the next thing Alex knows, Kay is navigating a tremendously difficult health journey of his own. An unusual one—a journey which eventually brought bickers of hope to many people undergoing the same. 

It may be the worst nightmare for anyone—having HIV and then the Big C. For Kay, it took him many months to know about it. And more months to get past the ‘acceptance’ stage and to finally adjust to the demands of the situation. 

But Kay picked up and learned to focus on how to move on with life. His healing journey opened him to more spiritual things, to find the meaning of life and of his situation. It opened him to many healing philosophies and techniques; led him to meet healers he didn’t know existed in real life—something not so distant from his personality as he had always changed paths drastically. His life’s way has always been to go a different new direction. 

For Kay, learning to be quiet and get in touch with the deepest part of the soul brought the most mind-changing effect to his life. And despite the changes—not being able to do what he used to—Kay had a firm mind about the things he had to let go of and to define his life in a new way. For him, we can’t escape the challenges in life. What we can do is confront and adapt to those changes. After all, mindset is everything when confronting the seemingly insurmountable! 

As he found a new channel for his creativity, Kay began bringing his experience and message to the world out there. And this was his newfound freedom and passion—with people who have shown him respect for being someone with an unusual life and path. His journey, of healing both the body, mind, and soul, has gone to give hope to countless people every day. 

For Kay: Experience stays with you. It never goes away. You have to integrate it into your body, mind, and soul to move on. It’s quite a challenge but it’s the better way to live life.
