The 35-year-old physical therapist, who had a whole day to herself, figured she's go for a 3-mile hike and spend a couple hours in the woods.
"I don't really know what happened," she said Tuesday morning, speaking to reporters while in a wheelchair. "All I can say is that ... I have strong sense of internal guidance, whatever you want to call that -- a voice, Spirit, everybody has a different name for it.
"My heart was telling me walk down this path, go left. Great. Go right. It was so strong."
She said it turned out to be not nearly as strong when after meditating on a log she wanted to go back to her car.
She tried one path and it didn't get her back to her car. She tried another. No luck. And another.
She came to the realization she wasn't on a human path; she was on a boar path.
"At that point I had no choice because everything looked the same I said the only thing I have is my gut. I don't have a compass. I don't have a cell phone," she said. "So, Spirit, or whatever you want to pray to, I said I need your help right now."
She said she listened to her sense of guidance, which instead of taking her back to her car, took her on a 5-mile journey, one she called a "spiritual boot camp."

She sounds like a nut.
I know because I can raise my eyebrows higher than yours.
Eller! Eller! You can walk on water. You can do it, Eller.
I have a feeling she might have been a little bit “lost” before starting her hike.
But, I’m very happy to hear she is alive - in my part of the country, the Pacific Northwest, when women disappear hiking, the outcome is rarely good.
Katherine Hepburn looks kind of like Nicole Kidman.
Well, one things for sure.
It twern’t the voice o’ reason.
Sadly she will write a book and make money.
She’s planning her next book and book tour already.
There will be special chapters for her “Survival Diet”
“Survival Yoga poses” “Survival Mantras and Chakra Maintenance, Aloe based lotions too.”
Plus the special shell jewelry, gowns and vestments she advises to wear if you want the ‘full effect’ of your mantras. Lecturing fees.
I’m joking about it, but if I was in her shoes, I too would think of “How could I sublimate this experience to pay off creatively, financially and provide greater security for myself? Why not? Let the buyer always beware.
That is like those river rafting wonen who were told to ride the current downhill, but it returns back to this same place.
They spent the night in the dark woods.
F E E L I N G S ....
The Hawaiian Mts are very treacherous, but I don’t believe a word of her ****
She reminds me of the runaway bride.
In 2007, I heard a voice telling me to buy GM stock
Boy, was Bogey right about that! lol
