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
My excitement was palpable.
I wanted to share everything with everyone, but I didn’t even have the
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.
