As a healing practitioner I have many opportunities presented to me to assist people in the process of dying – both symbolically and literally. The great death rites are one of my specialties. Many of the clients I serve come with conditions created by chronic patterns such as addiction, abuse, and poverty consciousness. Often they are patterns that run through their family line and have not been cleared through other traditional methods. When I work with those who are literally dying, they are healing their relationships with loved ones and forgiving themselves – we work together to complete their unfinished business. For me it equally important to be the safe, sweet spot of unconditional love for them as it is to be the energetic resource to clear their light body for their journey.
My view of this work is unique as I have experienced death first-hand through initiation, without my body actually dying. To understand this process, it’s important to understand that each time we have a significant experience we begin to identify with the roles and the stories involved. Our mind learns by comparison. Spiritual development is the process of becoming conscious to the part of us which is unconsciously operating and predisposing us to recreate the same events again and again.
For me, I went through a series of traumatic events which I coped with through self medication other wise known as drug abuse. During this time all of the identities in my mind revealed themselves to me… it started slowly with hearing voices… then opened up like a great flood of voices, visions and body sensations. I was submersed in tremendous fear – my own personal living hell. It was as if everything I deeply feared came forward and presented itself to me all at once.
Having no spiritual foundation to turn to, I isolated myself and followed the instructions of the voice that was the most loving. Eventually, I accumulated enough information (through reading a book on ascension) and consciousness which led me to a peak experience which changed my life forever. A tremendous, powerful energy rose from the Earth up my spine. I could only describe it as liquid lightning.My heart opened with the most tremendous love. The voices and visions dissolved and I experienced a tremendous spiritual awakening which relieved me of my living hell. Overnight my mind was healed and the symptoms were completely relieved. It took me many years of searching through many modalities to heal my energy body. Miracles occurred when I began my studies with the Four Winds Society.
Many in the medical and psychiatric community would have diagnosed me as mentally ill – schitzophrenic. Now, years later, I understand clearly that my awareness was opened up _to the content of my mind and the collective mind -and was made available for me to witness. I was submersed in this frightening condition for four months without cease…this experience was a shamanic initiation. Now, I call on the wisdom I gained from this experience every day. You may read more about my experience in my soon to be released book – At the Root of It: Rewriting the Story of Self Destruction.
I am certified as an Instructor for the Dying Consciously program through the Institute of Energy Medicine. The program is designed for all persons involved in the dying process: the individual, family members, friends, hospice workers and support groups – everyone in the general public. It is taught in simple terms through direct experience. No prior shamanic experience is necessary and if you have a spiritual, energetic base of knowledge you will find this work rich in opportunity and personal healing. Everyone gains tremendously by participating.
The work is based on the great death rites practiced by the shamanic traditions, the ancient teachings that held the secret of conscious death. In order to understand death we must understand the Luminous Energy Field (LEF), how the brain shuts down, and the process involved when the electromagnetic field dissolves and the soul (LEF) begins to disengage from the body. We will learn through direct experience how to assist a loved one or client with their unfinished business, how to relieve the brain of fight or flight signals, how to cleanse the chakras of heavy energy and how to apply the Great Death Spiral which sets the LEF free. Ceremony is key in honoring our loved ones and ourselves. Ceremony allows us closure and sets us free to be fully present with life.
It is very common for people to avoid death. In the West we have no cultural embracing of the death process… this is why as a culture we resist change, cling to old stories about who we are, and recreate chaos again and again. This process of learning about the grace and the love and wisdom in the dying process carries us over to a new view of celebrating life.
