Hiking a Georgia waterfall in a pair of flip-flops might not be the best idea, but for me it created a situation where I could test my healing skills—on myself. I lived in a cabin in the mountains of north Georgia within a short driving distance of eight waterfalls and hiking them was one of my passions. i decided to climb up one, and part way up I decided that wasn’t such a good idea. On my way down I slipped and fell, and thought immediately, “I probably broke my arm.” My hand was just hanging there. It hurt really bad. I plunged my arm into the frigid waters of the stream to stop the swelling, then called on the Seven Healing Rays—violet to calm my emotions and green to work with bones and joints. While I was working with these colors, I formulated a plan to have my friends take me home. But when I pulled my arm out of the water, it felt so much better that i went on to hike the next waterfall. Without an X-ray we’ll never know if my arm was broken, but i spent the rest of her day with my friends in the outdoors instead of at an emergency room.

We all have awakening stories – those moments when we KNOW the curtain between the physical and spiritual worlds is as thin as a tissue. For me, this moment happened when I took a class called Seven Rays Healing. After the first class, where I was introduced to Ascended Masters through a meditation, I went home and went to bed.

A booming voice woke me up in the middle of the night and said, “Put your hands together and please put the soles of your feet together.” I looked over at my sleeping ex-husband thinking he was playing a joke on me. He wasn’t. He was sound asleep. So I put my hands and feet together. An amazing movie of purple and violet shapes flashed before my eyes. The next day I showed up early for the second day of the class so I could tell my teacher what happened. She showed me a copy of sacred geometry drawings from “The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life” by Drunvalo Melchizidek. I had been given a vision of sacred geometry that changed the trajectory of my life.

Here are some additional tips for healing work – for others as well as yourself. You can’t heal someone who doesn’t want to be healed, they MUST participate in the process. There are 4 tenets to healing: a) it must be requested, b) the client has to participate, c) they will only be healed to the level of their consciousness or their belief, and d) gratitude is the cement that makes it last. Healing always leaves an empty space, and since nature hates a vacuum it will fill it—sometimes with the very thing you wanted to get rid of. So give thanks for what you receive—gratitude seals the deal! It’s the thing that brings God’s love pouring in. And forgiveness always comes in as part of the healing process.

Since the Universe’ answer to every request is always yes, it’s important to stay open to possibilities. We limit how much we can receive by thinking we know what’s supposed to happen. When we do any form of healing we have to stay in surrender and not be attached to any outcome, because only at the level of the Higher Self, can any of us know what is the best solution for ourselves or others. Anything less is a form of judgment and that is against the Universal Rules.
