Ok, I’m going to put 20 years of holistic healing into a nutshell.
First I quit smoking. That took me two years and about 20 times quitting. 22 years ago.
Then I learned about macrobiotics. Went to a macrobiotic counselor. Totally mesmerized and intrigued! So cool! Read the Book of Macrobiotics.
I went to an allergist and learned that I was allergic and/or sensitive to lots of foods. Baffled me. Blew me away. Didn’t believe it. Wondered why, where, what?!
I started to shop at the health food store and cut out processed foods, chemicals and preservatives. Started eating organic. All organic. Didn’t make sense to eat pesticides.
I spent 8 years ousting wheat and dairy. (Thank God I got through that! Those two foods are the most addictive, clogging and deficiency causing foods. Had to own my own goat for a while too! Lol.)
I started getting all the mercury amalgam fillings out of my mouth. (Just about killed me.)
Started getting massage therapy after experiencing reflexology. I knew this was really healing me big time. (Thanks God for Kim Nickerson and Joleen Cullens.)
I finally got to where I was ready to heal in regards to my alcoholic father. Went to Alonon meetings for four years. Cried for hundreds of hours. 10 years ago.
Kept reducing the amount of meat consumption through this entire process. (All 20 years.) Sometimes I’d go for weeks without any beef, chicken, or fish.
2002. Started to go to various spiritual gatherings. Found the Inner Light Center in Salt Lake City. Yea, not the Mormons! Went to the Course in Miracles meetings.
Read books by Wayne Dyer and Caroline Myss. Opened up to new thinking...new ideas.
Started learning about God medicine (herbs) rather than man made - greed oriented medicine.
Decided to become a massage therapist. 2003. My mom said that it just wasn’t for me! Lol. Don’t always listen to your mother or anyone else! Listen to your heart, mind and soul!
Moved away from Utah after getting nationally certified. Never went back since 2004. Breathed a sigh of relief after crossing the state line into Colorado!
Kept cleansing my entire being for the last 7 years. Still at it.
Finally made it to a vegan diet. Took 19 years of meat reduction and cleansing…. Holistic healing. Won’t ever go back! (Update: I went back! Now I'm eating animal foods again! It's ok though! I'm just a human - well, a spirit living in a human body!) No more alcohol either. Not even a glass of wine! Don’t need it any more now than when I was 10 years old! Alcohol is just a social ploy/tool that I no longer require.
Got a chance to teach at the Leaf Fest last fall… Loved it.
Decided to become a massage continuing ed teacher. Doing that now.
No fear! No limits. Never give up! Toward the one! You can heal too. Seek out the natural ways.
Peace and love,
