Self Healing, Spiritual Growth, and Reiki
My name is Isabella, and I have for as long as I can remember always felt like I was different. I was always told I was just too sensitive, too emotional, so I went through life pretending and hiding the truth because of fear of rejection, self-hate, and judgment. I was told once by a “high priestess” that I was a clairsentience. I had no idea what that meant, all I knew was that she told me things about myself that no one would ever know and foretold many things that were going to happen in my future. I have to say a great deal of those predictions came true.
Still not accepting or understanding what she meant, I continued to go through life as normal as possible, and “now and again” would think about what she said. It wasn’t until I was in my early thirties that I started to notice a lot more was going on. I started to become more interested, started watching Sylvia Browne on the Montel Williams Show, I started reading books, etc. and so my enthusiasm and desire to learn began, and I became the student….
As I began to research the “psychic realm” the more “aware” I became that I was indeed given a “gift”. This “gift” sometimes felt like a “curse”.
Approximately four years ago, which I believe was the beginning of my "healing and spiritual journey" I finally understood what it was that I was feeling throughout my life -- “empathy towards others”, which leads me to a name – ”EMPATH“
Finally a name for this “gift”, I am an “Empath”…
EmpathGuide.com©2009 | Empath Guide : An Empath is a person who can psychically tune in to the emotional experience of a person, place or animal. In the paranormal and in some works of science fiction and fantasy, highly developed empathy is a psychic ability to sense the emotions of others and often highly aware of the health and state of mind of their loved ones, no matter how physically near or far away the individuals may be.
So that was it, I wasn’t crazy, I was an “Empath”, I picked up on everyone’s emotions and energy (seen and unseen).. All of the times when I was feeling drained and couldn’t understand why I would cry for no reason, get mad for no reason, I was picking up on someone else’s energy.
I have finally embraced and accepted that I am an “Intuitive Empath” and by doing so a whole new world has opened up to me. As they say “when the student is ready, the teacher appears” and I must say the teacher certainly appeared. I have to thank, Triza Schulz (author of “The Fear Standard” - A Guide and Personal Journey to Regain Our Intuitive Spirit) and creator of ”Women and Men of the Wind – Spiritual Voices” on facebook. She has been a great inspiration, great mentor and has guided me along on this journey.
And so my healing and spiritual journey began, bringing many more synchronicities and experiences that led me on a path of healing not only for myself but the ability to assist others in their healing process. During this healing and spiritual transition, many more lessons were learned; but this time they were embraced with a deeper understanding on the why? how? and what?
How do I understand this new found "gift?" well the information and teachers appeared and assisted me through the transition. I learned a great deal and each lesson is bringing me closer to finding "my truth" and finding "my true self" and as I continue to learn I continue to grow with greater knowledge and understanding that will lead me to becoming "the Teacher" to help others in there healing process. And that is how I was led to "REIKI."
Embracing the ability of anEMPATH (empathy towards others) and becoming a Reiki Master Practitioner has been one of the most blessed and profound experiences of my "spiritual Journey" and I know this is the path I am to be on.
So, I continue to learn and grow and to assist other(s) in discovering their "truth" and finding their "true self".
Embrace and enjoy your journey!
Love and Light
