I was about to have a hysterectomy. I was choosing this. I had lived a life of pain, since I was about 12 years old. My periods and my hormones were so out of control that I was ready. This was my last option for health and stability — I thought.
My doctor made me wait 6 months to schedule it because I was so young and I didn’t have children, but I could handle that since I had been feeling like this for almost 20 years, six months was definitely doable.
As I was watching late night TV on a local Atlanta station I saw an energy healer who could balance your body with energy. How was that possible? All I knew was that I had a different kind of hope, hope of a life not on hormone replacement therapy.
I finally went in to see her and from the minute I stepped out of her house I was different. I was balanced, happy and calm. Everyone noticed. What I also noticed was that I started to remember phenomena from childhood when I would have these experiences of energy that nobody understood back then. And now it all started to make sense. I could channel energy from the universe, but because I found it so scary as a child, I turned it off, and now it was turned on and it was turned on big!
I continued to feel better. My hormones balanced. My endometriosis healed itself. About a year or so later I got pregnant naturally and had a healthy, full term boy.
I also reopened a channel that helped me connect with my higher self. I had words of wisdom for people. As a hairstylist I would see people every month or so and they started to come back in to say that I said something to them that changed their whole world. By shifting their viewpoint of things people were experiencing life changes. I could help people with their pain and I wanted to share it with the world.
At that time energy work was definitely not talked about very much and many people thought I was weird once I started to embrace it even more. So I tucked it away and refused to share it with anyone in hopes of maintaining some kind of normal life and acceptance from people. Then I started to get sick again.
I found out I was allergic to hair color. I could no longer practice my beloved profession and I had to figure out what I was going to do. So, I found meditation. Breathe. I found stillness. I found myself and I found the confidence to be who I truly am. I embraced the world of energy and I have rarely looked back.
I get excited now that I see the world of energy, meditation, natural healing of all sorts being embraced. Almost mainstream.
What I have found that I do is open people up to who they naturally are. Which is what I needed the most. I help them enhance their own personal connection to their higher self so that they can know themselves, heal themselves, take actions in life that feel good. They become more confident and empowered to live a life that is more authentic and fulfilled.
My favorite thing is when people text me a few days or weeks after a session telling me how different they are. They experience more joy. Second favorite, but so important is that my clients have affected their families, work environments, communities as their work trickles out in the world to make the whole world a better place.
One person who learns who they are, lives from a space of love can affect thousands of people. And that is why I do what I do. Because I have to. Because I love people and I want everyone to find peace within, because I love this earth and I want humanity to survive and thrive on a peaceful and loving planet.
