Moments of Transformation

The word of the month is transform, and it set us to thinking about moments in life that change us utterly. I look back over my own life, and it really feels like many lifetimes. I’m sure I will have more journeys in the years ahead as well. Looking back, I see in my past the same kind of moments that change most lives; marriages, births and deaths. For me, though, one of the most transformational moments in my life was when I first learned about energy healing.

The year was 1986, and I was a restless 23 year old with two small children, a husband, a large house, and a sense of longing for a purpose. I was beginning to study cosmic consciousness, self hypnosis, and other mind expanding topics. One day, I decided to visit a psychic to see what she had to say. She took my hand, looked at it and proclaimed, “My dear, you are a healer!” Great, I thought….what am I supposed to do with that? It was the 80’s, and healing was even more obscure than it is today. But as synchronicity would have it, my massage therapist had taken a course in energy healing and only two weeks after the psychic had informed me of my hidden talent. She told me, “I did this amazing seminar, and I really get a sense you need to do it too.” I agreed with her, and with that decision, the greatest transformation of my life had begun.

Have you ever learned something and felt like…. “Oh yeah, I know this!”? The very first day of that seminar was like coming home to something I was meant to do, that I had always done. It came as naturally to me as breathing. I continued with the program, and became certified in that modality. It was the first thing I ever did for myself. I went on to study and teach other modalities, and develop my own particular blend of techniques. I became a massage therapist as well, and have worked on thousands of people over a thirty year period.

You never know when those transformational moments will hit you, and I am so grateful that this one  hit and changed me forever. I can’t imagine how my life would have turned out if I had not taken the path I took, and I am grateful every day to have been given this gift. 

Wishing you beautiful moments of transformation,
