About the healing dimension
I’ve always been a sensitive soul and grew up in a house with a resident spirit that no-one else could see or feel and I remember feeling terrified. As a teenager, I was attracted to tarot card readings and the readers would always tell me that I could read cards, but this was discouraged in my Christian family. I often had dreams that occurred the following day and had premonitions about things.
In my twenties, I married and had a family and a career as a corporate PA but this all came crashing down when my marriage broke up. I was in my early forties and had completely lost sight of who I really was. I had no understanding of spirituality. I had a very difficult few years as I struggled my way through some big life experiences.
One weekend I took my girls camping at the Organic River Festival which was held outside Levin and in the middle of a paddock surrounded by didgeridoo music, Hari Krishna chanting, organic food and tarot card readers I had a revelation that I could train in massage. Never in a million years would I have considered this my path but I investigated this possibility and with the help of my first tutor at the local high school night classes I enrolled at the NZ College of Massage and completed a Certificate in Relaxation Massage.
Once I had qualified I set up a practice in Lower Hutt and everything just flowed for me.
“I am here to help bring you from where you are to a place of peace and understanding”
However, I started having very strange experiences with clients that I couldn’t explain. I was guided to the Petone Spiritualist Church and there I discovered that I was a medium and healer and I learned to understand the experiences I’d been having. I spent several years sitting in spiritual development circles, both in and out of the Spiritualist Church, and I did hands-on healing at the Church every week to gain experience.
I completed a Certificate in Allied Therapies at the NZ College of Massage. I also started reading books written by some of the non-religious spiritual teachers of today, e.g. Eckhart Tolle, Wayne Dyer, Louise Hay. I gained confidence in giving readings in an appropriate and respectful way and I now have an understanding of how the Universe works and how to walk a spiritual path.
My girls left home and I travelled overseas for six months, walking El Camino across Spain, spending two months in Italy looking at art, and after a few days in Istanbul I spent two months in Abu Dhabi.
I love to travel and have had many profound experiences in places of worship around the world. I’m equally at home in a Christian Church, an Islamic Mosque or a Buddhist or Hindu Temple. I’ve visited the UK several times, holidayed in Thailand, been on a yoga retreat in Bali, travelled in Vietnam and Cambodia and most recently visited Papua New Guinea. I love to meet people and experience other cultures.
I moved to Christchurch in April 2016 to live with my new partner.
Between us, we have five adult children and five grandchildren. I now have clinic space at our home and this allows me to study towards a BA in Religious Studies. I go to yoga almost every day. I’ve very grateful for all I have experienced in my life to date. I live a conscious life with an open mind and continue to be guided by the Divine Spirit in all that I do.
