Like yours, my own journey is multi-layered. But it was a single event that catalyzed my interest and immersion in the power of working intimately with energy.
A few years back, as I was leading a content meeting at my tech media job, I had a seizure. Totally out of the blue, no warning, my body gave out, I crumbled to the flor and shocking jolts of energy started running through me. I was conscious, but not in control.
More seizures followed in the weeks to come, I visited numerous specialists, underwent MRIs and EEGs. I went to every medical center in my city (which is filled with world-class medical centers). No one could explain what the heck was going on, or why. There is a special mix of panic and angry rebellion that comes about when medical specialists tell you they can't explain what's wrong with you and can't offer treatment. If you've ever had this happen, you know what I mean. I would never wish it on anyone. At a certain point I fell into despair, grief, hopelessness.
With no answers in sight, I had to take care of basics first--keep myself and others safe. I gave up driving. I gave everyone I met with fair warning about the prospect of what I came to call “episodes”. These ranged in severity from a sudden inability to speak or move to full-on seizures that felt like huge energy waves ripping through my body.
In fact, intense energy was overwhelming my system. I learned this later after sheer luck/divine intervention led me to alternative healing modalities, namely energy healing and hypnotherapy. Quite literally, my nervous system was short-circuiting. Other symptoms included adrenal fatigue, trouble sleeping, an undercurrent of anxiety undermining everything. Of course I knew I was stressed and had anxiety--so did most everyone else I knew. Turns out though that the stress built upon stress, built upon deep down anxiety from the past that had not been properly tended to, and was way more toxic than I'd imagined.. Even with the counseling I'd done in the past, even with overcoming a serious eating disorder and addiction, and keeping a personal practice of meditation and exercise, my mind and body were tightly wired and programmed for running stress and anxiety. And this tight winding perpetuated thought processes run by fear and "shoulds" that kept me from tending to the signs and signals my mind, my body, and my spirit were trying to desperately tell me. The way I look at it, my body finally said, "You clearly aren't paying attention, so I will get your attention."
And so, my task became three-fold.
- Heal and release all of the stress from the past once and for all.
- Rewire my system so that it didn't default to running stress or anxious energy.
- Allow myself to open to the deeper truth of my soul, and the innate magic within and around me (i.e. Owning my ability to move, shift, and transform energy and emotions within me, and energy around me to better serve, well, everyone. You have this too).
On a practical level, I immersed myself in learning and certifications to empower my own healing. These included different energy healing modalities and approaches, metaphysical education, NLP, hypnosis, and deep work tuning in to my body. I found an energy master and spiritual teacher with a transpersonal approach. The seizures became less frequent. My energy levels became more balanced. And as my physical self became stronger, I soon found that the combination of modalities that were helping my health challenges were equally effective in addressing numerous other issues, especially those requiring rapid change.
- These include: Releasing mental and emotional blocks, shifting unhealthy relationship patterns and dissolving toxic connections, activating creativity, improving focus issues, empowering confidence, catalyzing productivity and performance, supporting pain reduction/management, enhancing physical healing efforts, and more.
My approach to healing and empowerment is informed by expertise in energy mastery, transpersonal hypnosis, higher sensory perception, and divination. It also draws from my experience as an artist, musician and performer, of working in the world of global corporate communications and being a multi-business entrepreneur. Over the years, I have successfully helped hundreds of clients and students heal on the deepest levels to break through, open, and thrive. And though it goes without saying, I will say it--the work we do will always be guided and measured by how you feel AND the real-world things you want to do and actualize.
