How I got started in Eden Energy Medicine
Since I was about 20 years old I experienced recurring states of sadness and depression. Mine was a – smiling on the outside, collapsing into tears at home – kind of state. I had lots of good times too, but lurking close by was a terrible sense of inadequacy and self-rejection, and an overwhelming feeling of grief and inertia kept returning with varying degrees of intensity.
I felt some relief with many different therapeutic approaches: classical homeopathy, nutritional/amino acid therapy, talk therapy, hypnosis and regression, flower essences, essential oils, and rebirthing/bioenergetics. I had a strong intention to NOT visit the kind of medical doctor who would suggest anti-depressant drugs. My studies in homeopathy, through Dynamis School for Advanced Homeopathic Studies, reinforced my belief that somehow, my heart and my body could come into a state of healing without pharmaceuticals.
In 2003, I was feeling encouragement reading and listening to the work of Clarissa Pinkola Estes and Carolyn Myss. While browsing the used book section of our library, I found Energy Medicine by Donna Eden and David Feinstein, in hard cover, with a forward by Carolyn Myss, for $1.00. I thought, "anything endorsed by Carolyn Myss must be pretty good," so I bought it.
Reading Energy Medicine, I could "hear" Donna and David's voices, and felt the magic and hope they so skillfully conveyed through their words (I'm primarily an auditory-tonal sensory type). When I got to the part that said,
"You cannot get well if your energies are homolateral. It is that simple. It is hard to think clearly. You tend toward depression as all of your physical processes slow down." (p. 250, Energy Medicine 2008, expanded version)
My body energies responded with a full-sensory "Wow!" and I started doing the Daily Energy Routine with Homolateral Correction two or three times a day. I started feeling a little better right away. After a few weeks, I felt a lot better. After about six weeks, I had the experience of feeling truly fine and then suddenly becoming "unplugged." The lights and colors dimmed, and I felt sad, stuck, and inert. Little inner nudges suggested I just do the 3 Thumps and the Homolateral Correction again, which is a real struggle to even start when in this state. But after a few minutes of following through with these simple exercises, the light and color returned, and I felt like myself again. It was powerfully encouraging to have a new way to understand the language of my body's energies, and tools to engage with those energies, to bring about a return of balance.
It wasn't that my outer life had changed, or that all the things that I thought made me unhappy suddenly transformed; I just got better in myself. I started taking classes with Donna and David, and continue to keep following my inner "Yes!" where it calls me to go.
It is the best feeling in the world to be part of the field of transformation, a space where people reconnect with the vast multi-dimensional healing wisdom they carry within. I love it when people step into conscious communication and partnership with their subtle energies. I feel deeply honored to bring the hope and re-empowerment of this sacred work to those I'm privileged serve.
I have many, many loves in this world: my family and animal companions, the entire natural world of animals, plants, minerals and elements, mountains, forests and waters ... natural whole foods (growing, cooking and eating!), herbal medicine, Daoist Stone Medicine, organic gardening, hiking, creating visual art and various crafts ... singing, dancing and making music ... facilitating and participating in Women's Spiritual gatherings, and being privileged to participate in and contribute to our shared field of joy and transformation.
