TransitionsAugust 21, 2013
When I first started my work as a medium and Reiki healer I truly had no idea where and what my business would look like in 7 years. For starters, I couldn’t believe that I was able to communicate with those who had died and, on top of that, bring messages back to the living, thus bringing a sense of peace and healing. It all seemed unbelievable but it was actually happening.
As the word of mouth spread about my work I booked more and more readings. It was amazing to me that I was able to provide so much peace and healing for others. The response was very gratifying. There were still many moments in this time of growth and transition that I could not believe I was talking to dead people.
In 2009, I started to do group readings and again to my astonishment the groups started to grow and the demand for groups expanded. I also started traveling and doing both group and individual readings in other cities. It seemed that everything about my business was taking off and I enjoyed every moment of this growth.
And something shifted for me. I realized that it was not always an exciting and joyful experience for me. I started feeling sadness and anxiety creep into my own life and I soon saw that in all of my work communicating with the dead and experiencing the grief of my clients was affecting me.
Somewhere back in there, as my business was expanding, I had stopped teaching yoga. It had been a real love of mine and now it was a real lack in my life. So, I started teaching again, first one then two and now up to four classes a week. Unfortunately, just adding back the yoga wasn’t enough.
I need a break from the dead people.
Powers of Healing will continue to provide Reiki healing sessions, but will no longer schedule medium readings to individuals or groups. It has taken me a long time to come to this decision and it has not been without much thought and contemplation. I have seen the healing benefits of the medium readings and it saddens me to stop offering this out to the world. My website will reflect this change and now also includes my yoga teaching schedule (http://dev.powersofhealing.com/yoga-instruction/) and any upcoming yoga workshops that I will be running.
Thank you for all your love, support, and kindness. There may be a day when I will do readings again, but in this moment, I take a pause and enjoy this latest transition in my life and in my work.
