A Journey to a New Normal
I’ve struggled most of my life. And I’ve struggled with struggling… And then – I struggled with struggling with struggling!
Not at ease since I was a young girl, I experienced 38 years of chronic auto-immune and inflammatory disorders, which created decades of physical and emotional pain necessitating countless traditional medical interventions. Throughout the years, I have been on more medications than I can count, have had hundreds of tests, procedures and related surgeries, and have received dozens of diagnoses. I have also invested tremendous time in traditional adjunct therapies such as counseling, physical rehabilitation, and cognitive behavioral therapy. Despite all efforts to heal however, and the best of my Doctors’ resources, it wasn’t until I entered my fifties that I began to taste what wellness could “feel” like.
With my doctors’ support, I had begun to look outside the traditional medical field for tools. No longer amused by the recommendations of others to consider energy healing, I turned it intentionally. I had nothing to lose in doing so, and nowhere else to go. I began treating my illness with various energy modalities; in fact, I made it my job.
Initially a skeptic myself, though committed to substantive change that I somehow “knew” was out there, I learned in fairly short order that energy healing was the tool that had been eluding me all my life. My body began slowly shifting and I was noticing subtle improvements that left me with a renewed sense of promise. Call it what you will; irony, coincidence, synchronicity, kismet, luck or a miracle – it doesn’t really matter. At a time when my peers were beginning to experience the aches and pains of aging, I was beginning to emerge from a geriatric cocoon; younger, healthier, with less pain, and a remarkable shift in my quality of life!
In addition to my experiencing shifts in my physical wellness, I began to receive insights that were foreign to me, yet intriguingly familiar. My innate intuition was sharpening dramatically, and I was experiencing what others may refer to as déjà vu, premonitions, knowings, medium work and channeling. I began hearing, smelling, tasting, and feeling things others couldn’t, eventually learning that they were relevant to the healing journey of those I connected with energetically.
It’s taken nearly my whole life to find myself again. To learn to trust who and what I am, and what I was meant to share in service with others. And as I write this, there are tears in my eyes. No longer from pain; rather from the great joys and happiness I have been reconnected with having embraced my true purpose and having honed talents into meaningful skill sets.
As a lover of science and life's evolution, I do not believe energy healing to be magic. I believe instead that our universe, our world, bodies and minds are magical in how they can naturally heal, protect and nurture. While we wait patiently for science to quantify what it does not yet know and has still yet to discover, I will be watching with excitement at the continued bridging of modern culture and ancient wisdom. I hope perhaps you'll join me and you will discover your New Normal in health and wellness.
Peace and Healing, XO
