When I was 26, one night I became aware that I felt odd. I realized the large knuckles of my hands were burning. I thought, oh, no problem. Mom has had aching joints since she was 27, and that has been mild for her. Oh no! Within a year, I was burning from head to toe, and anti-inflammatory medications barely touched it. Here began my multi-year healing journey, as well as a new career.
I used my body as a laboratory and experimented with what might help dissolve this crippling pain. I talked with anyone I could find who had pain that had begun inside the body– not due to accidents– and they offered great insights. They said it mattered greatly what you ate and drank! This was new to me. In my life circles, people ate by calories, at that time. I found a no-sugar diet helped, and eliminating certain other foods helped also. As food has changed greatly, the diet changes I made then are actually not applicable today. So I will write another article about what diet I use today.
I found that smooth exercise, such as stretching dance moves and yoga, helped. Exercising for 20 minutes or more helped. Exercising to the point of sweat helped greatly.
Meditation helped, and prayer time helped. Practicing being peaceful helped, and helped me to feel a part of “The Flow”. This eventually led to my teaching meditation and prayer, and to the publication of my book, Sacred Meditation.
Oriental energy therapies really powered up my healing and establishing my new health balance, so I could enjoy life again. I found Reiki and Jin Shin Jyutsu especially powerful. Today, I see these as arts that access the nervous system and can ultimately relieve almost any conditions.
I became so interested in natural pain relief that I left engineering for my own natural health practice. I now give trainings in stress management and how to trade in your stress for energized living. My first book on this, Discover the Secret Energized You, was published in 2008. I then realized people needed a personal base of peace within, so I began teaching personal peace. My book, Inspirations for Peace Within, was published in 2017.
So today, over 30 years since pervasive pain attacked me, I have a thriving practice, teaching others how they, too, can thrive. I believe that most conditions can be healed– and why not try? With energy medicine, stress management and effective life strategies, the right food, the best spiritual practice, and healthy movement, great changes come about.
I am Healthy Happy and Loving Lifesm! And in my daily series this month, I hope to strongly convince you that positive living is the way to be, and it results in greater health and happiness and joy. It’s more fun! And that would be me and you, shaping our lives anew, ever more Healthy Happy and Loving Lifesm!
