Today I am mindful and grateful for my calling as an energy healer in such a magical and mysterious world.
Having been raised in a system of organized religion, which I served for so many years, I spent my former life doing what I thought was the "right thing". But my erstwhile limited understanding of God and of what I thought I should do paradoxically led me into patterns of self-betrayal and "falling on the sword" for the "greater good". Underneath it all, I lived my life as a very frustrated, and confused soul. The more I learned, the more troubled I became with the inconsistencies inherent in church organizations. My personal experience of God was not supported by church theology. I lived in a downward spiraling tunnel....experiencing a sense of emptiness and loss of meaning in the pit of my stomach...compartmentalizing myself.......dutifully playing the roles I had obligated myself to play in my work, my relationships, and in my family. Drudgery.... Depression... Confusion was the inevitable consequence.....yet all the while a part of me intuitively knew that there was MORE to life than living on this treadmill.
Then EVERYTHING changed. God saw fit to allow me to experience God's-self in ways that challenged everything I thought I knew. I accepted an opportunity to lead ghost tours which first opened me up to a better and more comprehensive understanding of the anatomy and nature of those parts of ourselves which are eternal. Through the study of the Tarot, I rediscovered my faith, as I found in it a compendium of esoteric and historical information preserved and passed on by spiritual people from all walks of life around the world. Through the experience of, and then learning to work with energetic healing, I found the Miraculous. In the Peruvian Amazon I experienced an epiphany that shook the foundations of my world. The universe's divine plan for me suddenly became crystal clear, after finding and being reconnected with my timeless lineage......my adopted Shipibo family, my identity as a shaman, and my purpose as one who heals and brings people into their own power. AND it just keeps getting better and better!
I am thankful for my supportive partner and children. I am grateful for the teachers and friends that God saw fit to place in my path, if even just for a short time. They have impacted me in eternal ways. Lastly, I am thankful for all of you who allow me to be a part of your journeys as you step into the fullness of your power; changing your hearts, your lives, the lives of those around you, and ultimately the world.
I am sending gratitude and love to you all.
