For over twenty years I worked as a traditional physical therapist, specializing in the rehabilitation of adults with neurological disorders, and I developed and taught courses in this area of practice for several universities.
Moving through Pain/Suffering
When I was forty-five debilitating pelvic pain reared up 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 take you with me as I discover the body-mind-spirit connection and learn to use it to move through pain. This book provides information, support and hope for anyone who is hurting.
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 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 combining my physical therapy background with the holistic bodywork and energy work that helped me heal. Through these experiences I realized that I am not unique, and that holistic healing has universal characteristics. I share these concepts through my personal experiences in the self-help book, Healing with Awareness.
Growing in Spiritual Awareness
As I healed I began to perceive and experience more Love, and I had many surprising, spiritual experiences. Information came to me through physical sensations, mental images, spontaneous thoughts, dreams and coincidences. I learned that this part of healing has been described by others and has been given names like: growing in awareness or consciousness, and self or spiritual transformation. I share this part of the journey in the book Healing with Spiritalong with ways to open up to receive spiritual support and wisdom. This book is currently in the publication process, and will be released in 2020.
Letting Love Flow
After I finished The Healing Series, spontaneous spiritual information began flowing in whenever I sat down to write. It came in many different forms including: life lessons, poems, quotes, and even a spiritual philosophy! I share these insights on a spiritual blog (lettingloveflow.com), and on facebook and instagram (@lettingloveflow.com).
