Life and Its Meaning: What Is It All About Understanding Energy What do we all want? •

We strive for meaning – which is invisible, it’s a feeling, a knowing, a confidence

We want to feel fulfilled

We want to know that our lives matter

We want to know that we are making a difference in others’ lives

We yearn for material things

We want connection

We want peace, internally and communally

What do we see in the world around us? As a people we are living 50 times more experiences in our lifetime than our ancestors ever did. We have information coming in through various avenues and our consciousness looks at all this information (energy), life nourishment…but how nourishing is it, really? •

Negativity on the news broadcasts and newspapers everyday

Wars that are ripping families apart

Mothers that can’t feed their children

Fathers wondering what tomorrow will bring

1


Teenagers committing suicide

Terrorists threatening and bombing other countries, races, religions, into the planet itself

How bad do we have to feel to make this better? Can we ever feel bad enough? So, let’s take another perspective. How about feeling good? How about healing ourselves, one person at a time and changing the world using positive energy. Embrace the earth and each other and remember that we are all connected. Nothing is disconnected from source energy. You can call this source God, Allah, Budda, Universe or whatever other name you have for it, really it is all the different colours of the same rainbow. Not a thing is ever disconnected, it is not possible, not one single soul, not one blade of grass, we are all connected. Some of our connections get rusty feel corroded, but we are never disconnected…ever. If we want to make a difference and work towards doing good, then we first must take care of “home”. How can we help others, if we are not strong enough emotionally, physically, mentally or spiritually? When you look at yourself in the mirror, what do you see? You see your five sensory physical body. What about your soul? What about your higher self? The image that you see is not incorrect, it is just not the entire picture; there is so much more to you than your physical attributes. Try thinking of yourself like a “vehicle”. In this vehicle there are some passengers: You of course, your consciousness, your free will and also your energy…soul…spirit or whatever name you may have for it. There is also another passenger and that passenger is ego, your inner critic, that voice in your head. 2


Now ask yourself, are you driving the car? Are you in full control of your life at all times or is ego driving the car while you are in the back seat along for the ride? Most of the population of this world are observers in their own lives, just letting life happen rather than taking the steering wheel and manifesting what they want to happen. As children growing up, we are not taught about this inner wisdom and higher self, which in turn results in us losing our connection. We slowly become disconnected from our true selves and in its place is a little bug I like to call the Inner Critic, the parasite, the virus. Instead of being a team player in your life, it does whatever it can to throw a monkey wrench into every thought you have. There is a way to create harmony with this parasite and turn it into a team player. Feeling disconnected from our true and higher selves causes a break in communication and from the way our energies can heal us, and in turn, heal the world. The Beginning of Your Own Healing Healing your soul cannot happen overnight, nor can it happen if you don’t start somewhere. Let’s begin the process of understanding this healing with your Chakras. What you can see, with what you can’t see. Most of us don’t believe or are fearful in the things we cannot see. I can’t tell you how many clients come to me and say, I don’t believe in energy because I can’t see it. My response is the same…do you believe in your God? Do you believe in gravity? Do you believe in air? These things also cannot be seen.

Let’s make this really relatable. The Human Energy Body is made up of Chakras which we can equate to our organs in the physical body, the Aura which we could equate to our skin and the Meridians that move the energy around that we can therefore equate to our veins. We have many Chakras, 7 of which we will go into detail about in this book. My next book on Chakras will focus more on the ones that are out of body.

What are Chakras? •

Chakra is a Sanskrit term for ‘wheel of light’. It’s a revolving light that goes in and through our energy system

They regulate, manage and maintain the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of our being on this physical plane

They are revolving doors or portals if you will, between our body, mind, soul and spirit.

They are specialized energy centers, which are multi-dimensional in nature

There are major and minor Chakras; •

major Chakras manage our critical functions and issues

minor Chakras regulate the less fundamental ones; however, all Chakras are important and necessary for our growth and health.

“The Chakras or force-centers are points of connection at which energy flows from the body of a man to another…all these wheels are perpetually rotating, and into the hub or open mouth of each a force from the higher world is always flowing.” CW Lead beater (in his classic text on Chakra states)

5


The seven main In-Body Chakras are listed below. These Chakras should always be in motion with one side spinning out the front and the other side spinning out the back. 1. Root 2. Sacral (Naval) 3. Solar Plexus 4. Heart 5. Throat 6. Third Eye (Brow) 7. Crown

6


The Chakras Record The Chakras record everything we have experienced in this lifetime as well as experiences we have carried over from other lifetimes. We can talk about past lives a little later and its benefits to healing. The Chakras work a lot like the brain cells do. For example, if we have experienced trauma as a child, the first Chakra in the genital area will lock in the memory of that trauma. It records these memories so we can learn from them. Stored memories can be very harmful, as they can negatively affect your life, and you won’t know why. The Chakras store memories to preserve the moment so it can be dealt with at another time in order to prevent damage, especially if it is too self- destructive or negative to deal with right away. Entire blocks of time can be forgotten in extreme cases until they are triggered somehow. There are ways to heal these memories and we can speak of those options later if you wish. Chakras regulate the key physical organs and systems, our emotional actions and reactions as well as the soul’s integration with the mind and body. Each Chakra is associated with a specific endocrine gland which stimulate growth and development. The Chakras communicate with both our internal and external worlds. As each Chakra has the ability to communicate psychically and intuitively in order to express its needs and desires.

The Chakric Structure In-Body Chakras – Front and Back side •

Front side governs everyday behavior and regulates our relationships with the physical world

Back side responds to our subconscious programs and manages our relationship with the spiritual realm

In-Body Chakras – Left and Right side •

Left side is feminine and regulates female oriented issues; attraction, relationships, intuition and one’s own femininity

Right side is male and regulates male oriented issues; domination, success, rationality and one’s own masculinity

All Main Inner and Out of Body Chakras have an Inner and Outer Sphere •

The inner wheel reflects our programming from divine source. The actualization and gifts necessary to carry out our spiritual mission

The outer wheel reflects our personal issues. This includes our private desires, personal pain, sounds and soul issues.

Ideally, these two spheres should act in tandem with each other. They may not move at the same speed, or even in the same direction, but they should be rhythmic and consistent. 8


Most of the time the In-Body Chakras move clockwise, but there are instances where some may move counter clockwise, for instance: •

During menstruation in order to release built up emotion that may happen some months and not others

When someone is experiencing grief or shock or is near death

Or simply, that is how that particular Chakra rotates for you, sometimes a sock is simply a sock.

The Ten Chakra Elements Fire - Eliminates, purges, and burns away negative and stale energies. This adds energy, excitement and new life which is the basis of the Kundalini process and is important to healing. Air - Transmits ideas and ideals. Allows the spread of energies from place to place or person to person. Water - Transmits psychic and feeling energies, soothes and heals, washes and cleanses. Use to clean your lymph system or intestines of toxins, both psychic and physical. Earth - Builds, solidifies and protects. The earth can rebuild tissue after surgery, soothe any inflamed area and repair tissues. It is ideal for holding malleable structures, such as cell walls. Metal - Protects, defends, and deflects. Use it in the auric field to deflect harmful energies. Visualize a metal armor around the liver or kidneys if you are taking medication (this will draw heavy metal toxicity out of these organs). Wood - Buoyant, adaptable, and positive. If depressed emotionally, add wood to the mind by picturing trees or plants. Stone - Strengthens and holds. Imagine putting all soul or subconscious issues or emotions, such as shame, into a stone and then throwing the stone into the ocean. Ether - Holds spiritual truths; can be used to infuse any system, energy body, mind, or soul with such spiritual truths. Ether is a liquid gas. It is the fifth element, the spiritual energy that scientists and metaphysicians have attempted to define for a millennia.

10


Light - Can be directed, spun, fashioned, summoned, or eliminated to produce almost any desired effect. Light is an electromagnetic radiation of various wavelengths. ‘Dark light’, which constitutes frequencies closer to infrared and below, is composed mainly of electrons that carry intelligence about power. ‘Light light’ is composed of frequencies near or above the ultraviolet range. It is fashioned chiefly from protons that hold intelligence about love. Star - Uses spiritual truths to form and purify physical matter. Release negative misperceptions by formulating the truth. Imagine this truth enfolding into a star, and insert the star into the appropriate auric field, energy channel or Chakra. This technique can even be used to alter DNA. Star will also forces the release of a misperception or harmful pattern in the body

Root Chakra “Muladhara�

Root Chakra "Muladhara" (Grounding Support): I am the Foundation for our Life Experience

If you are going through a hard time, feeling anxious, insecure and vulnerable, are unable to relax and let your guard down, then it might help you to clear and balance your first Chakra. The Root Chakra, or the Muladhara (Root Chakra in Sanskrit), is the first of the seven main Chakras. It is the center for feeling grounded, safe, and secure in the world, and as such, it is the foundation for your health, wellbeing and for the development of all your other Chakras. An unbalanced Root Chakra can lead to weight gain or loss, anemia, over or under active sex drive as well as many other negative symptoms. When the Root Chakra is balanced, you can get back on your feet even when facing challenging circumstances. You will feel relaxed, calmer and more secure and can let go of nagging insecurities and fears. Front Side The Root Chakra is critical to our survival as it is linked to our fight or flight responses. 12


This Chakra is located at the base of the spine. More exactly at the perineum (midway between the genitals and the anus). It is the foundation for the other 6 Chakras in this In-Body System and is of crucial importance, as it relates to the earth element, our body’s health, survival, material and monetary existence. When it is grounded, the Root Chakra can manifest our needs and allows us to accept our limitations. This Chakra also receives basic programming from family genetics for such decisions as to our will to survive. This Chakra regulates our ability to achieve our most basic and physical needs, which include money, housing, food, clothing, sexuality and passion. It regulates the physical area in which it resides which includes the intestines and our sexual organs. The sciatic nerve that starts from our Sacral area and goes down our legs is the largest peripheral nerve in the body it’s about as thick as your thumb. This nerve acts like a Root for the nervous system. When our legs touch the ground, it connects us with the earth and with the force of gravity this keeps us connected to the planet. The four-petal lotus illustrates the Root Chakra as it represents the 4 directions as well as the 4 elements. The small triangle in the middle represents the downward force of the Chakra. Inside the triangle is the Kundalini serpent wrapped around Shiva Lingam which points upward. The seven-trunked elephant named Airavata symbolizes the heavy like quality of this Chakra and the 7 trunks represent the 7 Chakras.

13


If we do not balance this Chakra prior to balancing the other Chakras, our growth will be without roots, ungrounded, and will lack the stability required for true growth. Fear is an enemy to this Chakra as it counteracts the sense of safety. Facing our fear can help this Chakra open. “In the first Chakra, to be aware is to be tactile. Nothing happens until it happens in the first Chakra first; and nothing has happened until we sense it, until we feel it in a tactile way, until it touches us…Our interaction with our environment is dependent upon our own bodies ability to simultaneously record and make us aware of the occurrence of some event or experience” Rosalyn L. Bruyere – Wheels of Light

Back side The back side of this Chakra is in the lower-frequency dimension and contains all the beliefs and experiences we have ever held regarding our rights to manifest, create, and flourish on the physical plane. Through this point, we can tap into our core belief systems that affect the nature of our being. The energy we ideally want to channel consists of red (or serpent) Kundalini energy. We ignite this ‘life flame’ through our Root backside Chakra and open ourselves to our passions, drives, and desires. When the back-side Chakra is healed, we can receive all energies needed and we can then heal our physical issues, including addictions, blood diseases, and inherited problems. This allows us to open ourselves to abundance, worthiness, complete health, and belief in our own sacredness. Location Lower-frequency dimension.

Based in the universal pool of physical matter from which all life springs. Physical attributes Programs DNA. Regulates the body’s chemical balance in reaction to beliefs about being deserving and worthy. Coordinates genetic coding Functions as the access point to the globe of humanity and the human drive for procreation. Mental Attributes Holds the key to our beliefs about deserving physical life and well- being. Leads us to the necessary realization that we are a manifestation of divine source energy, and we deserve all that our essential self requires for full expression. Feeling Attributes Allows universal love energy to enter through the back side of this Chakra Which is the basis for the primary feelings shown through the front side of the first Chakra. If we disbelieve our own goodness, we will stop up the flow and experience rage, hurt, pain, fear, etc. Spiritual Attributes Serves as the physical meeting ground for the sacred.

15


Our true essence is breathed into this Chakra, where it is shaped for physical experiences. Healing Applications The back side of this Chakra is shaped by all of our prior experiences and beliefs and those of our fellow human beings. We want to eliminate the blocks in this Chakra, and erase or transform the beliefs that say “I don’t deserve a fully happy life”. Becoming willing to open to the divine source’s belief system will allow unlimited amounts of manifestation energy into our first Chakra and spinal system. Inner Sphere Is regulated by your soul’s relationship with the divine. Outer Sphere Your movement in the world. Over functioning causes hyperactive behavior. Underfunctioning creates laziness.

The Importance of Grounding Many ignore the importance of grounding even though it is imperative to your energy system. Without grounding, we are unstable, we lose our focus. We can feel powerless, overwhelmed and may not want to be here any longer. By grounding ourselves this allows us to become present in the here and now. It helps us to gain nourishment, stability and growth. When standing on the ground we can also feel revitalized by the energy of the earth. Grounding is a simple force that brings consciousness back to our body which exists in one place and one time; it protects the body from becoming overloaded and is a way of coping with stress. When you are grounded decisions are easier to make and you worry about the future less as you are in the present moment. Only in the present can we feel joy. The mental energy of the upper Chakras is boundless, and the lower ones are narrower in their scope. If the upper Chakras are too open while the lower ones are not stable enough to support the overload of psychic energy around them, this can cause a psychosis, which is why remaining grounded always is imperative to our balance.

We are all part of this constant process of movement, moving through many dimensions simultaneously. We move through physical space, as well as through feelings, through time, from one thought to the next, and through consciousness. We move through a world in motion, a world in constant change. 21


Movement is an essential part of the life force – the essence of what separates life from death, the animate from the inanimate. Rocks don’t move – people do. Let us from then through the element of water in this second wheel of life – discovering how it brings us movement, pleasure change, and growth.” Wheels of Life – User’s Guide

Sacral Chakra “Svadhisthana”

Sacral Chakra "Svadhisthana" (one's own adobe) – I Feel Our Feelings Template

If you feel you are working too hard, either temporarily or as a life-style, or life feels like a constant struggle, you might need to clear and balance your Sacral Chakra. When the Sacral is unbalanced you can lose your ability to feel joy, to play and be creative. As a result, you may feel numb or have difficulty expressing your feelings. Disruptions in the Sacral can also cause low-energy or unhappiness with your erotic life. Second of the seven Chakras is called Svadhisthana in Sanskrit The Sacral is the key to life energy, emotions, sexuality, creativity, and gives us the life energy for creation, recreation and procreation. Clearing, balancing, and opening your Sacral Chakra can help you regain your joie de vivre. It’ll get your life juices and creative juices flowing, and that makes your life-juicier!

When the Sacral Chakra is blocked •

Emotionally cold

Low energy

Low libido

Difficulty changing

Difficulty experiencing joy

Holds back

Or hyper-emotional

Overly sexual, or overly focused on physical pleasure

Guilt

Problems with reproductive urinary systems

Front Side The Sacral Chakra is located in the abdomen, centered between the navel and the genitals. It is linked to the intestines, abdominal organs and the female reproductive organs. It is especially important to women as they store their life energy inside it. The Sacral Chakra corresponds to the Sacral plexus nerve which hooks into the sciatic and is the center motion of the body. The element of the Sacral Chakra is water as it relates to the bodily functions having to do with liquid, such as blood circulation, urinary elimination, sexuality and reproduction. Feelings from here are “softer” than the ones from the first Chakra and the best way to work them out is through creative or emotional expressions. This is where we 24


understand our reactions to our inner and outer worlds and how we will express it. The illustration of this Chakra is a six-petal lotus, orange in color. At the base of the middle lotus there is a crescent moon which contains the Makara, an alligator like creature with a coiled tail. He is the water creature representing consuming desire and passions and animal instinct. Back Side The backside of the Sacral Chakra contains our feelings about ourselves in relation to the holistic universe, where the front side contains our feeling bodies which operate as entities unto themselves. The model or template for these feeling bodies is found in the back Chakra. The backside channels feeling frequencies from outside of us. Our goal is to weave these frequencies into our feeling bodies either to complete our incomplete feelings or to strip away feelings that are not our own. By opening ourselves to the vibrations that we need, we allow ourselves to analyze the situation in light of their emotional complexities. Inner Sphere By disregarding the spirituality of feelings, you will be judgmental, closed minded, and unsympathetic to others. If you fail to translate the spiritual messages behind the feelings, you will be emotional, hypersensitive, and codependent. Outer Sphere This establishes the ways you act as a feeling person in the world. Repressed feelings will attract people who exhibit these feelings to you or cause you illness. If you hold feelings that are not yours, you will feel crazy and out of control. 25

Solar Plexus Chakra “Manipura”

SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA "MANIPURA" I AM IN MY POWER

What is the Solar Plexus Chakra? Also known as the 3rd Chakra, the Manipura is located just above the naval and below the rib cage. It is our energy center and radiates vital life energy (prana) through-out our entire body. It is where our power comes from; our ability to achieve, self-esteem, raw emotions, and selfdiscipline are all governed by the 3rd Chakra. It is where we can have a mental understanding of our emotional self. Where the Sacral is important for women, this Chakra is where men hold their power. It not only governs the emotional and mental aspect of your psyche but also your psychic experiences. Often a feeling of intuition or “gut feeling” in a certain situation will benefit you greatly if you listen to it. Within this Chakra are the keys to finding balance and how we are going to achieve our dharma, our life purpose, rather than just live out the karma, or past experiences.

31


Blockages in the Solar Plexus Chakra Symptoms: This Chakra is linked to the muscles, fatigue, stomach ulcers, allergies and diabetes. If the Solar Plexus Chakra is blocked, then you likely feel easily depressed and rejected and possibly wanting to blame others for your insecurity feelings. You are an emotional chameleon and will lack self-confidence or self-esteem, which will cause you to change to suit the needs and wants of others to be more accepted for reassurance. This only hurts you more as your own sense of worth fails to manifest as a result. Causes: Most of us are taught from early childhood to repress our emotions and feelings. The rules of society say that we must always be practical and wary. It cautions us against exploitation. We live in a restricted society where people will often take advantage of one another, so this problem is difficult to overcome. By repressing the Solar Plexus Chakra you place yourself on auto pilot and this can cause severe emotional problems among others.

Heart Chakra “Anahata�

THE HEART CHAKRA "ANAHATA" I love myself unconditionally and am fully open to receiving love.

What is the Heart Chakra? Also known as the 4th Chakra, the Anahata is our energy center from which love, joy, happiness, and compassion emanate from. It allows us to feel sorrow, sadness, anger, and lust- all of which are feelings of the lower Heart Chakra. These are essential in understanding ourselves in this world so that we may over-come them and move to the higher Heart where pure, unconditional love exists. It is the Chakra of yang, or positive energy, connecting the Chakras to the higher one and is very important in your spiritual healing and evolutional development. When it is fully open, the Heart Chakra becomes what the Buddhists call mahakaruna, a channel for universal compassionour true self. It is where we invite this infinite love to flow through us, allowing it to heal ourselves and others. The lesson for the Heart is that we first must love and accept ourselves before we can love others.

44


When The Heart Chakra Is Blocked Symptoms: Blockages can manifest as immune system or heart problems, or lack of compassion. Characteristics of a blocked Heart Chakra include fear of rejection, feeling unworthy of love or loving too much. If there is blockage in the Heart Chakra, you may feel unworthy of love and skeptical of anyone who wants to love you (and paranoid that you will end up hurt, yet again) or your love relationships may be completely co-dependant. Causes: You have probably experienced one or more of the following: Shaming, authoritarianism, volatile situations, domination or will, physical abuse, dangerous environment, fear of punishment, age inappropriate responsibilities. When the Chakra is imbalanced in some way it means that somewhere along the line, there has been a disruption in your attitude and understanding in love. You may want to give your love with the hopes of gaining control of a person or situation, and thus confusing love with manipulation, or you may be giving your love in the hopes of gaining recognition to boost damaged self-esteem. You may consequently be a possessive and mistrustful person who lacks compassion. If the Heart Chakra is completely blocked, this tends to manifest itself in the antithesis of what the Heart represents: you are literally Heart-less and quite icy in how you receive yourself and others. If you are not open to love in your life, it is not possible to feel very happy and joyful about yourself, and people with blocked Heart Chakras certainly do not.

45


When the Heart Chakra is in balance: You will feel a great compassion for all living creatures, and will recognize their amazing intelligence. You will be kind, caring, understanding, joyous, and outgoing and feel completely at ease with yourself and the people in your life. You will understand and accept others for who they are; you will not judge or be critical of their actions. Spending time alone is something you do not mind, and you are not rushing into one relationship after another, in fact you would rather wait for the “right� one to come to you because you know it will come to you when the time is right. Front Side This is responsible for your connection with major and minor relationships and your ability to give and receive. Back Side This relates to our unconscious beliefs about relationships. It keeps you connected to people you have not let go of. Inner Sphere This balances your relationships within. Self to self, divine to self, self and divine to all aspects of the self. Outer Sphere This creates balance. Balance with relationships between ones self and all aspects of self with the world and others in it.

TRUTH WITH EASE

What is the Throat Chakra? Also known as the 5th Chakra or the Vishuddha, is the center that governs our speech and creative expression in the world. Its balance will determine how honest you are, and how well you can express yourself with the people around you.

The Third Eye is our gateway into higher realms of consciousness when one becomes enlightened you understand fully that we are all one and that our idea of separation from one another is more than an illusion.

Extreme self- negativity leaves us in the dark, susceptible to brainwashing or cult influence. When we lack a clear picture of self, we might adopt others’ visions for our life rather than our own. The converse is also true. By affirming our divine source self, we automatically receive and select visions that will enable us to reach our highest potential.

Feeling Attributes

Influences and reflects how we feel about ourselves. The more open the back side of this Chakra is, the better we feel about ourselves. Lack of selfacceptance, poor self image and the like are often attributable to a partially shut down sixth Chakra back side. Feelings of low self worth can shut down this Chakra; an inhibite back sixth Chakra can also

Shows our soul what it has created and what it wants to create. A pure back side opens to a higher guiding light so we might envision our true desires and attract opportunities that will manifest them Here, we can address problems with low self image or body-image concerns; confusion about our path, choices, and potential futures; and a general disbelief in a future. During any death and dying process, including those involving transformations or loss, there is typically a necessary and predictable shutting down in this area. We lose sight of clarity as our self-perceptions and choices rearrange.

Crown Chakra “Sahasrara”

THE CROWN CHAKRA "SAHASRARA" (thousand petal lotus) I am in oneness with Divine

What is the Crown Chakra? The Crown Chakra regulates many in-and-out-of-body functions. Currents of energy are taken into the body through a stream entering the Crown Chakra. It is the “psychic center” for higher knowing. It receives the spiritual energies and guidance necessary to activate our purpose. Because it is connected to higher planes, the seventh Chakra is seen as the center of our divinity, the place through which we know our unity with the divine source and all other spiritual beings. Blockages in the Crown Chakra Characteristics of a blocked Crown Chakra include indecisiveness a sense of not belonging, fatigue. If this Chakra is fully blocked, then you are cut off from life and live in great fear. People who have this Chakra completely blocked have rejected any notion of spirituality and fail to find any meaning in life beyond the physical although their higher 71


self may consciously or unconsciously keep nagging them to do so. Challenges when the Crown Chakra is not open or in balance are loneliness and meaninglessness. Causes: You’ll have experienced or will be experiencing some of the following: withheld information, education that suppressed curiosity, forced religious, invalidation of one’s beliefs, blind obedience (no right to question or think for oneself), misinformation, lies and spiritual abuse When the Crown Chakra is in balance you will have a great intuitive knowledge, and will be very wise. You will be aware of your spiritual self and be selflessly devoted to the well-being of others because you see them as part of you, rather than a separate.

Has no physical attributes because of its complete nonjudge mentalism. While problems in the front side can manifest as a physical concerns, the back side cannot physically affect us. However, opening to energies available through this back-side Chakra can lead to physical healing. Any sense of disharmony or incompleteness in our lives could indicate an injured seventh Chakra back side. Opens us to the divine spark of consciousness and the universe’s positive beliefs about ourselves. When we believe that we are unworthy or when we fear losing our individuality to the greater al, we can close down the back of the seventh Chakra. To keep this portal open, we must be willing to change these beliefs or let them be transformed. Brings us a feeling of being perfectly still, yet blissful. The feeling is comparable to that which we experience when praying, meditating, or praising at our own personal place of worship. Helps us realize that all spirits are equal. Our individuality remains intact, yet we realize that unity is of key importance. Most people describe the state of awareness achieved at this level as feeling “at home�. 76

From dysfunctional to dynamic and fulfilled! Due to impaired social conditioning as a child (let’s just say dysfunctional, shall we?) I grew into an adult who was drawn to abusive relationships, self hate and even planned my own suicide. The baggage I had been carrying for years was eating me alive. After escaping two bad marriages, I felt overwhelmed and alone with few financial means to support myself. I tried conventional counselling, but it kept me in victim mode and angry all the time, reliving my past over and over and I continued to feel trapped in an unfulfilled life, eventually hitting bottom. At a certain point, moving on no longer seemed like a viable option for me as I was dying a little more inside every day. Fortunately, survival mode kicked in when I discovered alternative methods of healing. Through Reiki healing, Past Life Regression and Hypnotherapy and my own protocol called EEC, I completely transformed my life as well as my outlook and my confidence began to soar. A strong and loving support system Through holistic and alternative modalities, I learned that I – like you – have access to a strong and loving support system within myself and in the world beyond the physical realm. Others seeing my transformation were anxious to find out how I did it. Now, I not only shares my own story and methods of healing, but I continue to educate myself in all the many alternative methods available.
