Healing is a complicated bit of human activity. There are short term solutions that treat immeadiate symptoms and this is very useful if you’ve been in a car accident and your life and limb is in danger–the sort of official medicine we have keeps disaster at bay until we can figure out a long-term solution to you problem. If your child is involved in opiod addiction or mental illnes, for example, this is not just our child’s problem but extends to your unresolved and usually unspoken family issues that may go back several genertions. It is not enough to give your child pharamaceuticals (which may make matters much worse) or month in rehab or a mental hospital and expect a true solution to the problem. Even if your child were to be “better” the problem will re-appear in another form which is why both the AA/NA systems actually don’t work and rehab doesn’t work either as a magic bullet.
Simple solutions don’t work in the long-run they only put off the inevitable because we are complex beings where symptoms may need to be treated with short-run solutions but to get to the cause of our dicomfort and disease (dis-ease) we have to dig deeper. That is where I come in. I get to the root of the problem as best I can because that is how I am motivated because one day we will have to face ourselves as we are and that is not easy. Here is my spiritual biography in a nutshell.
- Astrology: This is a form of divination that is a study of the relationship between the planets moving against the sky and the relationships they have with each other and with us. Astrology shows the inner balance of forces. Knowing what these forces are and putting a name and a “style” to them helps each of us have a better insight into our psyches. Astrology helps us manage our persceptions of the problems we face and that can greatly change the problem itself which is why Astrology can be a healing modality.
- Tarot: Tarot’s origin is shrouded in mystery but it’s symbolism, as it has come to us, lends itself to almost endless possibilities for interpretation. I’ve found doing a Tarot reading to an amazingly powerful tool to help clients understand situations in their lives. I believe the cards activate spiritual/psychid insight for me and I can use that not to do fortune telling but connect you with you rown spiritual journey and thus give you an idea of what the forces you are dealing with externally and itnerally are like.
- Spiritual Healing: I have been a massage therapist, Reiki Master, and was initiated into some shamanic healing practices. My healing consists of chakra alignement and energy balancing a long with a kind of healing touch method.
- Spiritual Counseling:My central mission in this life is to help others get in touch with their own spiritual path (which may be very different from mine) and identify your voices within that both aid in this mission and hinder it. I have a strong background in several religious traditions including Christianity and its deep spiritual traditions. I see religions as spiritual languages.
