Bio on HOW DID I GET HERE! Or Why I do What I Do Now
I believe it's not what happens in life but what you do with it that counts.
Your life is a testament to your choices.
The Early Years, the major challenge was health.
I was born prematurely in 1951 resulting in lung weakness and allergies. I spent
my first three months in an incubator and went home to a linoleum floored
sterile room (No stuffed toys). I lived indoors, avoiding everything and afraid to
eat. I was deathly allergic to shell fish, peanuts, preservatives, dyes, nitrates,
anything in a tin, (it got too scary to eat ‘out there') msg, aspirin, antibiotics,
sulfur drugs and the list goes on. . By age 19, I had developed idiopathic
urticaria, or ‘killer hives' from unknown causes. I swelled so badly, elephant
man had nothing on me. One time I even scared away the cab driver who came
to take me to hospital. I carried an Epee pen at all times, used 4 different
inhalers, lots of drugs and cortisone (50mg a day for one 5 yr stint ballooning to
over 236 lbs). I was allergic to dogs, cats, horses, feathers, fur, grass, trees,
pollen, snow and even rain. I basically lived indoors until I was 34 years old.
"IT'S NOT WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU, IT'S WHAT YOU DO WITH IT THAT
Truly my life has been blessed. The GOOD result is I was compelled to learn
about natural healing, inner connections, laws of the Universe and I became a
great cook to boot (:
The physical was easy to see. Mentally and emotionally I had low self esteem,
fear, worry, doubt, and despair to cover the basics.. I learned to adapt to
survive and was a People Pleaser Extraordinaire!
My Dad was in the Medical Core, and we were raised quote "military catholic".
(We had to line up for church parade every Sunday). As a result of some
personal disappointments and confusions I walked away from my Catholic
roots at age 16. I am the eldest of eight children and with both my parents and
grand parents passed on, to date I am the oldest living relative on both sides of
our family. The ‘matriarch' if you will. In my early years I was peace maker,
counselor, and surrogate mom and cook when Mom was busy with new little
ones. My early passionate dreams were of becoming a Ballet Dancer, a
Doctor, a Coroner (like Quincy), a Nun, a Lab Technician (like my Dad, which I
am!), a Teacher and the best Mom in the world.
FROM THE SEEMING DISASTERS COME THE BIGGEST BLESSINGS
Between 18 and 28 years old I worked in private and hospital laboratories from
Calgary to Vancouver. I married Andy at 26yrs, had our son at 28 and birthed
our twin girls at 30. I choose to stay home with the kids and for the most part
life was good. In September 1985 Andy was the first Greyhound driver in
Canada to be killed in a bus accident. (Four drunk young people had stolen
some gas and where running from the police, coming out a side road at 110
mph, hitting the bus hard enough to tip it over. Andy was killed instantly with a
head wound and sadly all four kids burned with their truck). I was a 34 year old
widowed Mom with three kids and my spiritual journey began! It is like I went
through a revolving door and came out on this side. I found love with Pete and
Reiki. (Pete and I just celebrated our 20th anniversary 2006).
"WHEN THE STUDENT IS READY, THE TEACHER APPEARS"
I was and continue to be blessed with the best teachers in my fields beginning
with the delectable Leah Smith...my Reiki Teacher. (Leah is the most graceful
person I have ever known). Embracing the relationship of Reiki has blessed my
life in every way, every day. From day one I began a daily practice of
Meditation, Reiki and Conscious Awareness and today, I am happy to report I
am allergy free, a healthy 135 lbs, more energetic, vibrant and healthy than I
could have dreamt of being in my twenties. I can even eat peanuts! Did it
happen overnight? Not a chance. The journey of healing is multi layered and
one step at a time.
"I AM A SPIRITUAL BEING WITH A BODY HERE TO EXPERIENCE"
Life is not so much about finding yourself as it is about creating yourself. This
personal relationship with the Universe is the foundation of everything I do and
teach. A perpetual student of the Universe, I continue to seek and learn ways to
address the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual needs of people as whole
beings. No separation. The combination of my studies and diverse personal
experiences on the journey has enabled a deep personal rapport with most of
my clients and students.
"IT ALL BEGINS WITH YOU AND WHAT YOU SAY TO YOURSELF"
I am a first and foremost a Reiki Master Teacher, Clinical Hypnotherapist,
Family and Child Counselor, Sho Tai Practitioner, Fire Master, Life Coach
and a dynamic Teacher, Trainer. I have extensively studied the mind-body
connection and learned a great deal from my life, my clients and my students
over this past 22 years. My mission in life is to teach the world there is a softer
gentler way- to think- to feel- to be. It all begins with you. Today, in partnership
with my daughter and Breakthrough Coach Amanda Dennison, we focus on
providing experiential workshops with accelerated learning techniques and
breakthrough events to empower you in the now. Own it, live it, be it. It worked
for us, it can work for you.
