I created this blog as a result of the incredible support and encouragement I have received from family, friends, and colleagues who have seen me grow as a healer and continue to expand my horizons.
I would like to use this as a place to record and share my experiences, views and insights into energy, healing and how it fits in to our daily lives and the world we live in today.
To begin with I would like to share a little bit of my background with you. I was born and raised in England and have travelled throughout Europe. I have spent a significant amount of time in Italy, as well as three years living and working in Germany before returning to England. I married and had two children, and together we moved to Canada in 2001. For the past four years I have been a single mom, working hard to raise my children and re-discover who I am inside.
I learned that most of my life I have not been making positive, thoughtful decisions about where I want to be, I have simply been reacting to circumstances. I needed a place to live, so I took what I could find. I needed money, so I accepted the first job that was offered to me. I was bouncing around from one situation to another without really taking control of my life.
Once I started to see this I began to think really hard about myself. What makes me who I am, and does my life reflect this? I have always known deep down that I am meant to help people. But the jobs I have had were all for private, profit making corporations. The work was alright, but I got no sense of well being from it. I knew this had to change, but I wasn’t sure how.
As I looked more deeply at myself not only did I begin to see things differently, I also began to feel different. I noticed one day that my hands began to feel full and heavy, even though I wasn’t holding anything. It felt like a force that was trying to get out and I was reminded of something I used to say as a child – that I feel as though I can spread peace to others. I wondered if the two were connected.
Soon after that I hurt myself. A sharp piece of metal got stuck deep under my thumbnail. It was incredibly painful and made me feel sick and faint. I held it under running water but it would not stop bleeding. I thought about the heaviness in my hands. I lay down and touched my thumbnail very gently with the other hand and focused my energy into it. The bleeding stopped. I continued for a few more minutes, and the pain disappeared. I was actually able to press down on my nail and didn’t feel anything. It was as though nothing had happened.
This was my first healing experience. I was amazed and excited by what I had done and the possibilities that suddenly now lay ahead.
It has been only 18 months since that day, and I have come a such long way and had experiences I could never have previously dreamed of. This is just the start of my journey, and I am grateful to be able to share it with others.
