My Journey - Part 3
My biggest challenges still lied ahead...
Six months after I left on sabbatical, the metaphysical church closed and the property was sold.
I continued to build my business in alternative healthcare. I had left corporate America about the same time I started training at the church.
As a massage therapist, I also trained as a Usui Reki Practitioner and later as a certified holistic kinesiologist.
Not only did I fine tune my gifts in energy healing, I also gathered knowledge about developing health from the physical venue of nutrition and supplementation.
I continued working with people, sharing knowledge from my years of study, giving psychic readings and teaching foundations and principles in metaphysics that I was trained in during my time at the metaphysical church in Albuquerque during the 90's.
There remained within me a feeling of incompleteness.
I was working primarily with people with brain injuries during the day and helping my mother who had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer during all other waking hours...
It wasn't until my sister came by and saw how much of my mothers condition I was taking on...
She said "Mom is the one that is dying, not you!"
That statement helped me to let go of the control and ego that I had invested in the situation and gave my mother the space to find her peace in her final days.
It was during that time that my son's father, my cousin and some friends also passed and my spirit crashed.
However, it wasn't until my father's death that I realized that I needed to separate myself from the toxicity of my relationships with 3 of my siblings as well as others in my life who I felt my karmic obligations had been fulfilled.
With my father's death, I hit my wall...
I physically started failing, and that lead me to retire.
I spent the next 3 years traveling between my boyfriend's home in Toronto and my home here in Albuquerque.
It was during those 3 years that I started healing my mind, body and spirit.... but especially in body as I had gone as far down as a person can get on a physical level.
The lesson learned is that in those times of physical suffering, with the aspect of body out of sync, I lost connection to my higher mind and spiritual guidance...
As my body healed, my connection to my spirit guides and my innate wisdom returned stronger than ever before!
Coming Full Circle
My sabbatical lasted 14 years until I found myself in my closet getting ready and packing for a six month visit back home to Albuquerque; so I thought...
I received an impression from my guides...
They said "Take what is important to me as I will not be coming back for awhile."
After retiring from my alternative healthcare practice, I went to live with my boyfriend in Toronto.
I was spending six months living with my boyfriend and six months living in Albuquerque.
The only way I could have stayed in Toronto full time was to get married, and I was not ready for that.
Therefore, I did what spirit said, packed up most of what was important and came back to fulfill my destiny.
I have always seemed to have a way of feeling and knowing what is going to happen before it actually happens.
This inner knowing is a natural gift I have always had since childhood.
I trained for 8 years in the metaphysical ministry. As I trained, I recalled unique experiences I had as a young girl.
I thought I was going to go into grief recovery as I had trained in the Grief Recovery Method while in Toronto.
Much to my surprise, I was impressed to write classes in Metaphysics based on my own studies with the Church (UHCS).
I was then impressed to start Resonant Essentials for it was long passed time that I come out of my sabbatical to step up to fulfilling my destiny.
When I questioned spirit as to why they wanted me to teach metaphysics, they impressed me to seek out what others were teaching.
I had thought that the training that I received was common knowledge by now...
Alas, it isn't...
I went to places that I knew held training. I saw so many errors and misunderstandings of the principles of metaphysics I had learned and continued to practice.
I saw programs that promised becoming a Reiki master in 6 months...
Or, someone advertising their ability to remove your karma for $300 or teach you how to remove your own karma for $30 when you take their class.
That is ludicrous... Karma is a living, breathing part of us as a tool to bring us to higher enlightenment of truth.
So, Resonant Essentials was born!
