Ancient Healing wisdom has been handed down from generation to generation. This wisdom is quiet, its exciting and sometimes its scary. How many people have opted for the quick fix of Western Medicine when Energy Medicine is available? Do those people who reach for an aspirin because their body hurts even know there’s another option?
I didn’t. My mom might have at one time, I remember her telling tales of collecting clean cobwebs for a serious cut, while visiting Great Grand mom in Maine. She was young then and even when I was young they still didn’t have electricity or running water, they used an out house and survived with many of the old ways.
My mom, when I was young, was in a lot of pain. I remember once, seeing her crawl from her bed to the bathroom, her back not strong enough to allow her to walk. She most days survived with many doses of Excedrin, though out the day and Excedrin PM to drift off to sleep. When I was older, she spent days in the hospital with severe stomach bleeds and near death, would lay in the hospital trying to get stronger.
Yes, I remember the marvel of TV dinners, Extra Strength Aspirin, Wonder Bread and Cigarettes. Yes, I remember, the argument between Mom & Dad, should Mom work and bring in the extra income so they could feel financially more secure and the opposing argument of, isn’t he doing enough to support the family? That age-old question turn drama.
Is that when Western medicine became more about a quick fix and less about having a healthy, happy Life?
Are you at that point in your life? The place where the mortgage and car payment are controlling your life and the need to work. That place where your body is starting to send you messages, or perhaps like me, your body isn’t sending messages but rather the 2 x 4 is creating pain so stark you can’t ignore it.
I remember swallowing 3 extra strength Excedrin, with 2 Midol every 3 hours, just trying to get thru the work day. I was following in the steps of my parents, until someone kindly introduced me to another way.
I could barely walk, both of my parents had passed but my business was successful and I felt successful, when I wasn’t afraid, that I too, would die young and in pain every day.
As I began to learn the ways of the wisdom keepers, the Eastern Medicine philosophies and the Soul-searching depths of me, I slowly became conscious. I began to feel, see and learn alternative ways of healing, energy medicine and the medicine of real nourishment. Funny, or perhaps at the time I had no humor but, I began to heal and as I got healthier, I began to feel that much more. More awareness, more pain, more consciousness. What I mean is that, as I healed my awareness showed me that less and less could get my attention. Remember, when we are unconscious, we are ultimately ignoring all the signals, all the signs our body is trying to use to get our attention. Once awareness is present, you no longer need a 2 x 4 to get your attention. That said, there is a tipping point when your body truly begins to feel better, then, feel good and one day you catch yourself laughing, just for the joy of it.
Those days of healing and learning what my body needed to heal and then to thrive was such a blessing and sometimes yes, frustrating as well.
My excitement was palpable. I wanted to share everything with everyone, but I didn’t even have the vocabulary.
Days turned to months and months to years. I went from patient, to student and then to practitioner. The excitement continued to be almost overwhelming, the miracles were common weekly or monthly moments being witnessed. I was surrounding myself with people who knew so much more than I, but, still my excitement was so strong I wanted the soap box to be strapped to my feet so I could stay standing, stay shouting to all, to anyone who would listen and those that would let me practice, Oh My God, I was in heaven. I would go to that place, that meditative state where everything falls away and I could only feel the person on the treatment table. I dissolved, my eyes closed and I was on the surface, I was inside, I could hear and feel and see. My client sometimes aware, sometimes not, would always have a feeling of getting lighter, better, less pain and I wanted to do it again and again.
But, once again, I remembered, Ancient Wisdom must be passed down, I had to listen. Continue to listen, continue to absorb the wisdom, the knowledge.
Yes, I was a natural, each class a reminder of the natural wisdom within, but still I had to listen. I wanted to absorb more, learn more, teach what I’d learned and absorb all I could from those who knew more.
I traveled to the classes, I searched for the teachers, I paid a lot to learn, my now ex- was not happy at the cost of my learning or the time I took, being away from my business to continue learning. I continue to joke that I could have a PHD if you could buy one, the money I spent to learn being a Lot.
Then as I began to share all that I’d learned, as I began Spirit of the Lotus and my healing practice, my senses continued to expand. The shamanism expanded my senses even further. Soul Coaching® and Past Life Journey® and again with Advanced really expanded my senses until my intuitive senses were expanding. However, in the very beginning, it was not easy to know the difference between Good Energies such as Angels verses lower energies of those stuck in this plane and not so helpful, sometimes even just disruptive or trickster energies here to take your attention off the really deep wisdom. However, with years of practice and safe places to talk and learn, I was truly able to hone my intuitive skills and let me say, I continue to really thrive on learning, so I get upset when disruptive energies try to interrupt the Wisdom Keepers who are trying to teach. I have a deep respect for those that have been doing and using this energy and helping teach for more than my 15-18 years. I will be there with my sage and clearing tools, ready to learn, ready to demand the disruptive energies find their way home. And I will continue to teach and help people heal, one on one or in groups. AHo.
