For most of us working in the alternative field of holistic healing, it was, and continues to be, a calling — a result of a search for answers to questions formed early in life. It is the ‘why’ we do what it is we do. This is what I offer here.
Like so many, I grew up in a household rife with dysfunction. I witnessed the daily battle between my parents’ demons, watching helplessly as our family was slowly consumed from within. As my mother struggled with bi-polar disorder and self-medicated with alcohol, my father’s frustration continually ignited his unpredictable rage. Life in this prison of fear, shame, and secrecy was fertile ground for the many forms of abuse that occurred during those years. I escaped into adulthood with my own sanity barely intact.
Having studied and trained in corporate communications, I worked as a corporate writer and went on to marry and raise a family. During that time, I re-invented myself as a freelance writer, then a decorative painter. But self doubt and shame were always lurking just below the surface of my carefully constructed life. Conventional practices and beliefs of mainstream psychology and medicine gave me no relief and so I immersed myself in alternative studies in 2003. I was encouraged by the possibilities provided by understanding consciousness and metaphysics. Finding respite and hope in the science and tools of consciousness technologies, I became an holistic practitioner in 2006.
By 2009, I had a growing practice helping others utilizing skills I found effective in my own process. This came to a screeching halt that summer when our then sixteen year old son experienced recurring psychotic episodes due to self-medicating his own depression. Admitting to once again smoking pot after recovering from episodes of the weeks before, the fear I felt for our son engulfed me. Triggered by childhood memories, the intensity of my anger engulfed him and I saw him split in two, just as I had witnessed all those years ago when my father raged at my mother. It was in that moment I knew: I was the greatest danger to my own child.
This was about so much more than our son’s choices. This was about my reaction to everything in my life. If our son had any chance of overcoming whatever it was that had him in its grips, I realized that I had to do more than heal, I had to change.
Once we addressed the immediacy of our situation and got our son out of harm’s way, I closed my practice, feeling I couldn’t help others if I couldn’t help myself. I deepened my search for what would affect lasting change so I could break this cycle once and for all. My determination to make a different choice for myself and our family, rather than how society conventionally manages psychosis, lead me on an intensive five year quest for answers. By early 2015 I’d exhausted all avenues and finally accepting that, I gave up.
Seven days after I let go, Holographic Kinetics found me.
Within ten minutes of listening to a YouTube interview of Steve Richards speaking of how and why he created Holographic Kinetics, I had answers I’d sought my entire life. (Yes, when the student is ready, the teacher really does appear.) I immediately immersed myself in the intensive study and practice of this modality based in the ancient Aboriginal teachings of Universal Laws of LORE. As a result, I’ve personally experienced the profound and lasting changes available with the teachings of Dreamtime Healing using Holographic Kinetics.
I am grateful to Steve Richards, for creating Holographic Kinetics with the intent of freeing all beings on all levels and all dimensions.
And as an HK practitioner, I am honored and humbled to facilitate and witness the the change that is possible for each and all of us.
