I grew up in a family of physicians (not exactly a supportive environment where I could develop my abilities as a psychic!). I was a single mom at the time when one of my brothers developed a very serious illness. Since he was in California and I was in St. Louis, I couldn’t go to see him. And at that time even the doctors couldn’t do much for him, except to offer him supportive care. He was left with many side effects and went through a long period of rehabilitation.

Because of these factors, and because of the strong belief in something greater than myself, I became interested in different types of healing. Since then, I have studied many different kinds of healing and it has become a lifelong passion and pursuit for me.

The first time I experienced energy healing was taking a course in Reiki, which is a type of energy healing that comes from Japan. Since then, I have worked with an Irish touch healer, a Russian energy healer, an American Indian healer, and a Vietnamese healer to name a few. I have also worked with flower essences, crystals, and stones.

While I have been fortunate enough to work with many healers in person, I was learned how to heal at a distance.

And this is what leads me to the point of my story.

While all these systems were able to get results with some of the people some of the time, no one discipline was able to get results with all of the people all the time (to paraphrase Abraham Lincoln). And the curious thing here was that many of the systems had contradicting beliefs about what it was you had to do to get any results at all.

So, I began to look for what the systems had in common. I began to look for was patterns. And these are the patterns that I found.

  • Each system was intricate.
  • Each system was detailed in its own way, but not necessarily in ways that matched other systems.
  • So, while I was able to get results using different systems, intricacy and detail were not the complete answer.

Also, the practitioners of these systems had very little in common. But one thing that they did have in common was a strong belief in what they were doing. Not only did they believe in the power of their system, they also believed in their own ability to make the system work.

And again, this brings me to the point of my story.

From the experiences in my life, I know that energy exists.

I have felt it from John of God, a healer from South America. I have felt it from a chiropractor who is very detailed in his knowledge of the body and devoted to his work. I have felt it from a Chinese acupuncturist in Boston Massachusetts named Tom Tam. Mr. Tam has developed Tong Ren, a system of distance healing that is producing tangible, verifiable and miraculous results on a daily basis.

So, as I said, I have felt the energy myself. And I use it in my own work as well.

But the most important thing all is that this energy is very real. This energy does exist! And from everything that I can see, the unifying underlying principle in all these working systems of healing is belief.

So what does this mean?

To me it means that this energy is there, waiting for us to make use of it in our lives in every way possible, not only for physical improvement and actual healing, but for emotional healing as well.

(In articles to come, I will write about using this energy to improve our finances, our relationships, and every other situation we are faced with as we live our lives.)

And how do we use this energy in our lives?

We do this through the power of belief. Simply believing that there could be light at the end of the tunnel (that’s not the headlights of an oncoming train) is one way of opening the door.

This is not about always being positive, because in some situations, that’s a very unrealistic expectation. But at the very least, we can maintain a neutral state of mind. By simply being neutral, we remain open to possibilities, possibilities that we didn’t even realize existed.

The devastating illness that my brother went through and his long, difficult period of rehabilitation brought with it strong friendships that enriched the rest of his life.
