Why did I become a healer? It most perfectly expressed my longing to serve in the world. I had always been interested in metaphysics, holistic health and had an innate knowing that I understood on some level that I could ‘move energy’. But I didn’t know how I was to ‘remember’ what I was sure was in me.
I had once owned a bookstore in the seventies and had Barbara Brennan’s book Hands of Light in the store. And when I read that I knew it was everything that I wanted to learn, but at that time there was not any information about the school as I do not believe Barbara Brennan was teaching yet. It was not until the early nineties that her second book, Light Emerging, contained information on her school and once I read that I knew instantly I had to go, even though it was a poor time in my life to make such a huge commitment. I literally felt ‘pushed’ to do this. I thought of waiting a year but realized I would always feel I was a year behind myself, So I plunged ahead without really understanding on a conscious level what all of this meant- I literally took a leap of faith that it was what I needed.
The training was, as I said, everything I wanted to learn but most importantly it was also about finding out who I was –something I thought I knew. I was very much in denial about many issues in my life and without this training I doubt I would have ever known it.
So not only did I learn amazing energy healing techniques, I came to new understandings about my life. I learned skills that I use everyday on being present to myself and to others. The whole experience was deeply profound and a wonderful gift to myself. My longing to do this work does not change. I am still as passionate about it as I was when I went through the training.
