One year ago, after 30 years of marriage, I lost my husband to suicide after making the decision to divorce him. I was left with a lot of unresolved guilt and sadness, which had not progressed very far in the healing process, despite months of traditional “talk therapy”. My life had become something to be endured rather than enjoyed. I could not shake the guilt or sadness. I began to have neurological symptoms, and the neurologist said that I should seek emotional healing for the symptoms. (Symptoms includes a “jumping” of muscles including both eyes, face, lips, arms, legs, fingers, toes, as well as not being able to find words to communicate simple concepts.)
I had visited Nancy’s website and read that she worked with cancer patients in their healing process. I called to ask if she would be willing to work with me on the emotional healing I needed to pursue. She said that she had successfully helped people with emotional and neurological symptoms. We set up an appointment.
During the treatment, she worked with me on the unresolved feelings, utilizing alchemical crystal singing bowls, hands-on energy work, affirmations/prayer, and interactive guided imagery. It was an extremely spiritual experience, and I was rattled at first because of some conservative religious roots, but I had recently come around to include other modes of spirituality in my life, so it turned out, I was very open to the process.
Immediately, I noticed that a lot of the physical pain I had been experiencing was alleviated. I no longer had pains in my stomach or my hip, which had been constant since the incident a year ago. Movement began to be a pleasurable activity. I felt stronger and had more energy. I began to be able to express moments of pure joy for the sake of the joy itself. I remember one specific time, about a week after the treatment, when I was listening to music while doing dishes. I began moving to the music and went out to the other room so I could spread out and enjoy dancing to the music. I danced so long that I was perspiring when I finally plopped down on the sofa. I felt so good, so free, so joyful. I don’t know if I’d ever given in to such pure joy before!
My body and mind are healing a little more every day. No more undue guilt. The sadness intensified at first, then subsided. Of course, I still cry, but the sadness does not consume me. The physical pain has not returned and the neurological symptoms* are subsiding. I still have lots of energy and am still dancing!
I am so grateful!
(POST- SCRIPT:) Well, one year later, still pain free in my hip and stomach, where there had been constant pain until after I came to you. Still remembering to take time to be quiet and using your CD to help me…….Thank you for the work you do and the difference you made in my life. Much love and gratitude to you.
