My journey, as everyone’s journey, is a lifelong one. As a child I was a bit of a loner, preferring to be with the farm animals and playing outside in the forest and fields. I remember explaining to my mother there were two of me. A body with a ‘springy thing’ inside that the skin held it in. I drew her a picture in one of her nursing anatomy medical books; it looked like a Michelin Man. In those medical books I began to learn about anatomy. I was a sponge at an early age. I can’t find the picture I drew, but it is burned in my memory.
My mother became a Jehovah’s Witness and I received my first education about God and learned how cruel the world could be. I was a loyal follower and went house-¬‐to--‐house ‘spreading the word’. Many doors were slammed in my face; I was an outsider at school because we didn’t celebrate occasions like the other kids. As I grew older and began to think for myself; I left the religion and my family to go out on my own. Perhaps I was just a rebellious teenager? Perhaps not.
During a stupid act, I had a near death experience. I saw my body lying there and I couldn’t believe that’s what I looked like! I went through the spiral tunnel you hear about, and came to a portal opening were I met a male figure with beautiful features and light glowing all around him. That image remains as vivid today; the love that surrounded him. I felt this was Jesus Christ. I wanted to go but he wouldn’t let me. I remember feeling anxious and annoyed but he told me that it was not my time; I had things to do in my life before I could go back ‘home’. At the age of 16, I knew this was home and not where the body that was Helen was laying. I looked back at that body and obeyed him.
I married at 17, had two beautiful children, worked hard and made a life. My father died when I was 23 and my mother when I was 25. The recurring dream of two coffins I had for years prior came to reality. They died two years apart.
At 28 I met a psychic in a hospital smoking room; she told me things that astounded me! Though I obtained her card I never intended to see her again (in the future she became my lifeline with yearly visits). She freaked me out which is strange because I already knew things, but I never told anyone else, I kept mostly to myself.
When my husband’s mother passed, it changed our whole family. Very tough. I decided to go to visit a psychic, but because of my religious upbringing, this was considered the work of the ‘devil’. Amazing how life as a child and the brainwashing religion does, holds on to you even decades later. The woman was blind, she held my hand and told me I had just lost someone but she was just fine. She explained the silver cord that holds us to the body that we are born with and when we leave, the cord is severed. These words jumpstarted my journey of remembering and discovering Spirituality.
Since then, I’ve been searching. Grateful to the universe and my family to have been able to travel to European countries, Mexico, Peru, India, Nepal, Kenya, Tanzania, Egypt, Greece, many parts of North America and the Caribbean Islands. In these places I have felt the energies while visiting temples, churches, mosques and archeological sites. Learned about the indigenous peoples, their practices and have studied religions. I feel that since the beginning of time people have looked for purpose to their existence. Most have created massive structures they attend to ‘house’ their Gods and Deities. I have found that God can be found anywhere, anytime. The closest I feel to Mother/Father God/Source is in nature.
During my first past life regression with one of Sylvia Browne’s ministers, I connected to a couple of my past existences. Absolutely incredible! I know we are souls that never die; we suffer on this earthly plane but it is for our souls learning. Under hypnosis I learned my life purpose is to “Help People”. Little did I know at the time that I would have several regressions and even perform them for others!
Over the years I studied many paths; Therapeutic Touch, Shamballa, Multi Dimensional Healing, Zenith Omega, and in 2006 earned my certificate as a Reiki Master.
I also know we are not supposed to suffer. We are supposed to live a joyous life, but in this thick earthy plane with negativity, competition, selfish acts, greed, desire for money, it becomes hard to live joyously.
I used to have the condition called Fibromyalgia. Diagnosed by a Rheumatologist, who told me to take medications and to stop working and stop volunteering with Girl Guides and Palliative care. Just rest more and life would not be the same again. REALLY??? I’m not the type to just roll over and accept this negative diagnosis from a person. During this time I built a successful cleaning business working many hours, not giving in!
Thanks to a friend I was introduced to Adam, Dreamhealer. He was 16 at the time and born with a gift to help many. I attended his Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue workshop and he taught us how to use energy of the universe to heal ourselves. He talked about Light, energy and how we can bring it into us, AND it healed me. For three days following the workshop, I visualized, I slept and detoxed. I was then able to walk on my feet without pain, squeeze my hands and make a fist without pain. Since 2004 have not felt that kind of all-encompassing pain.
I have seen too many people I love suffer and die. A few years ago a peer was diagnosed with breast then liver cancer (then brain) and given a year to live. I don’t know why I felt so connected to her, we were never close prior. I did what I could for her and was there during her last breaths. I fell into a depression after and went on medication. I couldn’t seem to pray or do my regular meditations; it was like I became disconnected. Then, I discovered Biomagnetism!
The same friend who introduced me to Adam told me about a practitioner in Toronto who was doing sessions with magnets. Her family had great results. My back and shoulder had been killing me and my knee was swollen for almost two years and no physiotherapy or anti-inflammatory seemed to help. My doctor wanted to send me to a knee surgeon.
Two Biomagnetism sessions two weeks apart and WOW my shoulder and back stopped hurting! Within a couple of months my knee was normal! I took my husband. His shoulder stopped hurting, after a month his blood sugar was normal! He was amazed as he is my biggest skeptic. At that point I KNEW I had to learn this modality to help people! It was like I turned into a new me. I became alive again! I didn’t have extra money for tuition, flight or hotel. I own a cleaning business; that just pays the bills. But it is true, the universe provides!
In 2011 I completed Level 1 Biomagnetism; then Level 2 Bioenergetics in 2012. I retook both levels from 2013 to 2016 in order to be the best practitioner I can be.
In 2014 I was motivated to attend the Association of Research and Enlightenment, the Edgar Cayce Center in Virginia Beach, with a friend. I wanted to experience another hypnosis session, a past life regression.
My first regression I ever had, took place in 2000 in Toronto and it changed my outlook on life as we know it. Since then I had several regressions, each dealing with an issue in this current life that originated in a past life and healing occurring. The strangest thing, during the 2014 hypnosis session, I went back to the original past life that I experienced in 2000. The work was apparently not completed the first time. The practitioner there at the ARE helped me sort out why I was holding on to anger in this life, she used techniques to release all the anger I had towards a situation and following the regression, the peace and tranquility I felt was amazing! I knew I had to do this to help others! So, in 2015-2016 I earned my Master Hypnosis certificate through the ARE and have enjoyed thoroughly helping people with smoking, weight loss and relaxation.
I had heard of a different hypnosis technique, QHHT, that was created by Dolores Cannon. This form of hypnosis (Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique) is like no other, the client goes very deeply into Theta allowing them to connect to their Higher Self where they can receive answers about their life. In 2017 I went to a medium in London England while I was on a trip. The medium actually brought through Dolores Cannon (she transitioned in 2014) saying that she liked my heart and that she would like me to learn her technique! WELL! I was very honoured to have this message indeed! I had read a couple books but just didn’t do any in depth research on this modality. I sure did afterwards! I read her books, watched her videos and booked a QHHT session with a practitioner an hour away. The session was fabulous and I knew this was something I had to add to my tool box of services I could offer people. Now, as a level 2 practitioner, I am open to the universe to send to me those that are needing a positive change in their lives!
In 2019, I will be attending a Level 2 Microbioenergetics course, like an adjunct to the modality of Biomagnetism. This was developed by Dr. Miguel Ojeda Rios MD and after taking level 1 last year, it provides deeper results when combined with Biomagnetism sessions. I’m looking forward to learning more!
I am here as a servant of the Creator, the Source, to help those in need to relieve their suffering with amazing techniques to help you feel the BEST you can feel!
You have nothing to lose, except the pain, and “The Best is Yet to Come”
