In 2006 I was diagnosed with a serious heart condition. For a year I could not work or take part in physical activity I had a lot of thinking time! In April 2007 I had the procedure that should have cured the condition. I had a medical emergency during the procedure, a catheter pierced the wall to my right ventricle and my heart needed stitching up. It was very scary and during the 2 hours of trying to keep me going before surgery a lot of thoughts flashed through my head. The most significant (apart from my husband and children) was about ensuring I made the most of the new life with which I was being entrusted.
I was so motivated to return to work as a Headteacher at a school where the children families and staff were a significant part of my life. On reflection I think this is where my Healing Journey began. I know I made a huge positive difference to many families in real need.
5 years later the terminal illness of my father, my mums dementia diagnoses and the terrors of a Government organisation that does not recognise the needs of real people, people in great emotional, social and financial need, saw me quit my beloved job.
In the past two years I have been ill myself, I now believe much of this is caused by negative emotions, mainly grief, for my parents, my job and other life changing experiences , its been a time of finishes, exits, terminations. In order to seek wellbeing of body and soul I turned to a new Reiki healer and to my special friend who helps guide me with cards. The Reiki healer told me I have a kind and compassionate aura and energy and that it is all positive, that I have new starts coming and an abundance waiting, and because of my positive energy she imagined I would be a Reiki practitioner in the near future. I was totally surprised, although interested I have never thought to practice. I asked the cards, the same answers came. So my journey began.
