About Mary Ruth
For over twenty years I worked as a traditional physical therapist, specializing in the rehabilitation of adults with neurological disorders. I developed and taught courses in this area of practice for several universities, and published research in the journal, Experimental Brain Research.
Moving through Chronic Pain
When I was forty-five, I developed debilitating pelvic pain, and I quit work to focus on healing. In order to get better I had to stray beyond my comfortable western-medicine boundaries. In the memoir, Healing through Chronic Pain, I share how I discovered the connection between my body, mind and spirit, and used it to heal on all levels.
Healing the Body-Mind
When I realized that the pain reared up whenever I was stressed, I began healing on deeper levels. Over the years, this painful cue helped me uncover and release held emotions and constricting beliefs and behaviors. I learned to release these restrictions physically, mentally, and even energetically. Through this process, I became pain-free and peaceful, and my life changed in dramatic and positive ways.
After I had been healing for about seven years, I began speaking about healing and working with clients in a holistic way. Through these experiences I realized that I am not unique, and that holistic healing has universal characteristics. I wrote the self-help book, Healing with Awareness to share these concepts with others who are working to heal.
Growing in Spiritual Awareness
Over the healing years, I had many surprising, spiritual experiences. I learned that this part of healing has been described by others and has been given names like growing in awareness or spiritual transformation. I share this part of the journey in the upcoming book Healing with Spirit.
Letting Love Flow
After I finished The Healing Series, spontaneous spiritual information began flowing in whenever I sat down to write. I am now sharing these insights on a spiritual blog (lettingloveflow.com), and on facebook and instagram (@lettingloveflow).
