“The mind once enlightened, cannot again become dark” - Thomas Paine
After the sudden passing of my mother at the age of 45, in April 2005, followed by a miscarriage and the devastating discovery of an abnormal pregnancy 18 months later (which lead to a termination at 22 weeks), I found myself searching for answers. All tests and full autopsies were carried out, and in both cases the doctors were unable to provide a medical explanation for what had happened.
Three months later I got pregnant and went on to give birth to a beautiful and healthy baby boy. Just when I thought my life was finally getting back on track, I found myself spiraling into a deep dark hole. Not having given myself permission to grieve for my losses, I knew I needed help.
A chance meeting with a dear friend and relative of mine opened my eyes to the world of Reiki. After completing Reiki II, I was introduced to The Art of Living by my Reiki Master. It was during one of The Art of Living courses that I met a lovely lady who brought ThetaHealing to my attention. I remember her saying “I don’t know much about it but I think it might help you”. That same night, I went home and looked up ThetaHealing online. I found a course being taught in Dubai, booked a place, bought my plane ticket, and a few weeks later I was sitting on an airplane heading there.
I mentioned the course to my Reiki group and remember telling them “it would be great if you could attend this with me, but if you can’t, I’m going anyway”. As fate would have it, the three of us embarked on this profound journey together, and that was the beginning of a new chapter in my life.
A couple of years later my husband and I decided that we would like to have a second child. Twelve months and two miscarriages later, I found myself at a loss once again. I just couldn’t understand why I kept miscarrying. So, again I went down the conventional route of medicine; had all the tests done, we were prodded, pricked and probed, and again I came out with nothing. There was no medical reason why I couldn’t carry a child to full term.
So here I was in a similar situation once again, looking to doctors for answers and getting none. That’s when I made the decision that if medicine couldn’t fix me, then ThetaHealing could. It took less than an hour for my healer to tell me what the doctors couldn’t: I had a parasite and that was why I kept having recurring miscarriages. So that was it. An hour later I went home, within a few weeks I got pregnant and 9 months later, on June 9, 2011, I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl.
From that moment on, my conviction of the power of energy healing was re-affirmed. Any doubts I may have had about its effectiveness disappeared very quickly. My belief has gone from strength to strength, and I went on to become a Reiki Master, Energy Flow Practitioner, Meditator and Personal Development Consultant.
It is my children who brought my consciousness into the world of energy healing. It is through my son’s desire to ground me, and my daughter’s higher level of vibration that I have found my path. This path has taught me about humility, gratitude, forgiveness, purity of intent and unconditional love; it is from that platform that I conduct my life.
There isn’t a single day that goes by without me feeling honoured, grateful and truly blessed for everything that I have and for all the lessons learnt along the way.
