I have heard it said that magic happens outside of your comfort zone. This has proven to be true in the miraculous moments I have experienced.
Looking back from where I stand now, the path I journeyed on appears clear, although it was taken without direction or cause. I had no idea what it was I was searching for or that I was seeking any means to an end. I also realize that grief was one of my greatest teachers.
My father died when I was 26, at a time when our relationship was growing from a father/daughter to an adult relationship and I was devasted by his loss. It threw me into a dark place, and I began exploring outside of my normal comfortable boundaries for some deeper meaning to life.
Becoming a mother mended a phase of that yearning and granted me a sense of purpose and direction. It also deepened the relationship with my Mother. She became not only a loving tender Grandma, but also my best friend. Therefore, losing my mother just 10 years after my father found me in the dark depths of grief once again.
I could not navigate this grief while raising my young family, working behind the chair as a hairstylist with clients who were looking to me to make them feel beautiful. I could not find beauty in the most obvious of things.
I sought help through counseling; the therapist used a form of Energy Medicine in her practice called Reiki. In my first session on the treatment table, the therapist said in all certainty that my life events had led me to my birthright, I was a natural born healer. I had no idea what she was talking about or what that even meant. It was not a week later that one of my girlfriends, who had also recently lost her mother, invited me to a session with a Medium, someone who could reach out beyond the ethers and talk to our dead mothers. In the grips of grief, searching for meaning in all the pain, I sat with the Medium. She informed me that my life was about to change remarkably, as I was a natural born healer and it was my time to step forward. What? This was the second time I heard this in one week. What does that even mean? Not less than a week later I was outside pulling weeds in my flower garden and reflecting on the statements of the therapist and Medium, trying to make sense and find clarity in their words when I stood up and was surrounded by a large swarm of dragonflies. As I stood in a timeless moment, I felt a shift, an awareness that I didn’t understand but I knew was truth. I was increasingly gaining an appreciation of something greater than myself in a way that I had not encountered before. I was experiencing synchronicities, miracles of connection with everything that spurred me to pursue the study of Energy Medicine and Integrative Therapies.
Since 1998, I have been a ferocious student, studying several integrative modalities and complementary areas of study that I blend intuitively in my own Energy Empowerment sessions. I use what I learned both behind the chair in my work at the salon and Energy Empowerment sessions remotely and in person. I trust my Energy Work practice will grow and flourish as I do. I continue a daily practice of prayer, meditation, and energy balancing. My greatest desire to walk along side my clients to help them find their way back home, where they find peace, contentment, and joy. Everything we want is found inside our essence of our Soul.
