How to put into writing healing stories using Journeywork to share about the marvelous, wonderful, unique tool that is The Journey? Where do I begin? How do I start to share what for me is a daily occurrence? Everyday in my office I witness deep, lasting transformation.I see people freeing themselves from bouts of depression, allergies, anxiety, grief, low self-esteem, debilitating mood disorders and physical ailments, such as blood pressure, IBS, migraines, even cancer!
How do I describe the ‘indescribable’? Should I talk about the one who cleared herself of breast cancer in just two processes? Or the one that suffered from sexual impotence for as long as he could remember, and could resume having a normal sex life again after just two sessions? Or should I talk about the one who was suffering from panic attacks and couldn’t sleep, that felt an instant relief and change after the first session? Or maybe I could talk about the lady who was totally unable to let go of a past heartbreak to the point of becoming obsessive, and was able to forgive and move on? Or about the lady that was unable to attend to her dying mother in her last days of her life, and was able to surmount her fears in one session and was then able to let her go in peace while holding her hand? Or about the ones who were suffering from fybromyalgia to the point of being in constant pain and who are now pain free? Or do I talk about myself, finally released from the relentless, harsh, subtle, critical voice that kept me feeling never ‘good enough’ and unworthy, no matter what I did or how much I succeeded?
As you can see I am in awe of what I witness and am very, very humbled by it.
” How can I tell about others’ success stories? Which one would I choose? Why not start with mine?” I was always a firm believer in the saying ‘walk the talk’ and I sure found an echo to this motto in The Journey. I thought to a certain degree, that I had already cleared my ‘shit’. Being a fervent believer that it starts with you, to be the change you want people to be, I had over the years been doing extensive, continuous training in related fields and psychological treatment. I had sat in the client chair many times and was constantly willing to look at myself and deepen the knowledge that I had acquired over the years. But somehow I knew there was more.
When three people, in two days, talked to me about this workshop coming to Ottawa just two days later, I ‘got’ the message and registered. Already I felt a pull, a little voice inside saying it is going to change my life. I heard the whisper and I put it aside. Little did I know. It did just that! The weekend was a revelation. I went with no expectations, had no time for it, hadn’t even read the book. Nevertheless I felt and lived the magic, like so many! I remembered initially being a little overwhelmed by the intensity of the love there, even in the way I was welcomed. My ever-protective mind, my fear came up, ” Is this a cult? After all, I have seen many different things in my 20 years of practice working in hospitals, schools, giving and attending workshops.” The weekend was amazing! I finally made contact with this free part of me that I had felt before, used before, but never knew how to access systematically. This is a tool, not a random experience. And this tool was so powerful that it did its magic on me as well as so many other people around me.
I then decided to do the entire training to become a Journey Accredited Practitioner and in the meantime, started to integrate these tools into my practice, because ‘you don’t need to be a doctor to use it’. And again the magic happened! People touched ‘source’, a deep, free part of themselves and they started to heal and were able to free themselves, forgiving themselves and others. Some had spontaneous healings, some gradual healings, all healing themselves if they gave themselves a chance. I myself am freer and freer, becoming who I truly am in my essence as I share and guide people on their own path of transformation. As I was away a lot this fall, my daughter who is now 18 took my messages on my voice mail. She was dumbfounded by the countless messages of gratitude I received and said to me with her unique enthusiasm, mixed with a little scepticism and curiosity, “Are you God or what? People love you so much.” In reality, people are in love with freedom and simply grateful to have been gently introduced or awakened to their infinite potential, and feel empowered by their own ability to change and grow. Finally there is a tool that fully grasps and uses the unlimited potential that exists in all of us – a tool that is vast enough, wide enough, to include all possible human experin ience and restore meaning and dignity even in the most “damaged” ones. I am sharing all this with the pure intention of simply spreading the word about the fact that there is a way, there is a tool. There is a path for healing, the requirement is simply that you want to take it.
