“A healer is not someone that you go to FOR healing. A healer is someone who triggers within you your own ability to heal yourself.” – Unknown
If you have had an opportunity to start reading To the Moon and Back to Me: What I Learned from Four Running Feet, you are aware that I was given a precious gift to hear and see signs that my beloved Roo had not left my side, though she had left Earth physically. In the last days of her life on Earth, Roo had communicated to me that the purpose of her cancer was to open a doorway in which she wanted me to walk through. At the time I thought it was to write a book. True to Roo’s unconditional love, she continued to show me how to see and see again. What I have learned is that in hearing and seeing signs, I am able to in-tune not only to my dear Roo. The Universe has given me a sacred listening gift to in-tune to the souls of others. We all have that gift of using that inner whisper, that intuition that can hear and see without space separating us, to hear each other speak beyond the words we may say. And, we all have gifts we can share. I have chosen to share mine as a way to integrate hope and faith into life where hopeless and brokenness reside.
I often refer to the Universe as a maestro and each of us it’s instruments of a very beautiful orchestra (the orchestra an analogy of life). The Universe knows how to direct a flute to play at just the right time for the harmony that the clarinet or cello or piano needs that creates the perfect song. I have found it one of my greatest honors each time the Universe uses me as its instrument to walk beside another who is trying to find their song. Just as Roo and the Universe co-authored To the Moon and Back to Me: What I Learned from Four Running Feet – the words were not singularly my own, I am blessed to be a voice for the Universe in the form of written or verbal words that the Universe knows a soul needs to receive. My words provide healing. My words inspire. My words help another find their foothold in hope, faith, and that who they are is so very much enough for this world. My words can also provide comfort and peace for an individual, and their family, as leaving life on Earth becomes imminent. As you gathered from reading To the Moon and Back to Me: What I Learned from Four Running Feet, I do not see death as goodbye. I envision ways that death can be integrated into life such that a broken heart can find it’s rhythm to beat more evenly again.
I offer written life stories. The life stories are not only if you or someone you love is nearing the end of their life on Earth. Written life stories are also available to aid in healing a painful chapter of your life. I write life stories for those physically dying, either as a life in review story or letters that an individual would like as words of wisdom to pass on to loved ones. I write life stories for those who are shedding pain from the past as they bravely chose hope and new beginnings going forward in how they desire to live. I write stories of those who have courageously embraced hope and dignity, who have found within themselves the rhythm of their heartbeat again. These individuals are the extraordinary individuals who inspire hope for others to find the same. Each and every story lived is not ordinary, but truly extraordinary. And I am privileged each time a story is shared with me.
I am also available to walk beside you if you are journeying through a grieving process. I know I can’t stop the pain. I know I can’t begin to know what it is to walk in your shoes. The best I can offer is compassion, understanding in knowing what it is to travel life’s road with grief, and an outstretched hand to gently hold the pieces of your broken heart as you begin to find your own inner whisper within that says hold on, pain ends.
If you are interested in a life story, or would like someone to be of support in your grieving journey, please contact me using the link below.
I look forward to our paths intersecting.
We’re all just walking each other home – Ram Dass
