My real opening to myself began in 2002. Some inner voice was guiding me to quit my job and take time to go within. I was terrified, had a mortgage and lots of animal friends to feed, and not a clue how I was going to pay the bills. It was the most transformative time I can point to that started the journey of awakening for me. It was in the cloister of that cold, snowy Wyoming winter that I reconnected to my Self as a healer. It was as if I was remembering things I knew how to do long before being born into this body.
Exactly 9 years before that, I learned how to meditate and then set it on the shelf. Now meditation would become the doorway to knowing my guides and my future freedom. Talk about a powerful tool in the tool belt. Even with a whole new set of tools by 2012, I found myself shattered again. I felt like my life blew up after finally getting to a place where I was living my dream co-teaching workshops and giving sessions all over Europe. I lost my marriage, my work, my belief in myself… and found myself coming back to Reno, because that’s where my family is, feeling like an utter failure and totally lost, and having to hold it together for my 3-year old son.
We can go the slow route. Or we can get launched forward. Both are appropriate at different phases of our journey. It took me four years of inner cocooning to recover and heal from the explosion. It is miniscule in the bigger picture of our journey to Love. And then I could again feel my guides tapping me on the shoulder and saying ‘It’s time. Let’s get moving forward again.’ So I started listening and trusting again. With two pre-arthritic thumb joints, I enrolled in a reflexology certification program. Ten sessions into the practicum, it became crystal clear why.
I found all of my energy work and psychic gifts that had been put on the shelf for a spell beginning to bridge with the physical work happening with the person on the table. I understood the new beautiful paradigm of the whole package being healed and shifted all at once. And I found my connection to the other side stronger and more clear than ever before, the energy flowing though me equally so and my desire to be in service to springboard growth in others that much greater.
From there the flow was in motion lie the Truckee River in the spring thaw. Remote session clients kept finding me through my old website, my new reflexology clients were having big shifts before my eyes and as happens when we are in the flow, synchonicities just kept aligning for the next step and the next step and the next step. Thus was born Invoke Healing International. My small vision was going to be much bigger than I had expected! And now, it justs keeps growing through my Facebook community and word of mouth.
So Who Am I? First and foremost I am a child of Mother/Father God on a journey Home. My personal expression of God is as a healer, a harbinger of change, a catalyst and bridge to removing blocks and finding greater Truth for each of the souls that feel ready to dive in. Are you ready? I am.
