Like Kim, I too was asked to contribute to a book on Healing with Angels, by Jenny Smedley. Here are my answers to her questions.
Why did you get into your therapy?
I always enjoyed being able to help people whenever the opportunity arose, but I did not realize what a positive effect I could have on the well-being of others until I discovered Full-Spectrum Vibrational Energy Healing. My wife Kim helped me to recognize my innate ability and she encouraged me to study energy healing.
I went on to study several energy modalities, including Reiki, along with crystal and sound healing. This process helped to expand my limited five-sensory view of the world. It also introduced me to the angels. What my left brain might have once scoffed at, I was able to embrace wholeheartedly with the help of angels. I not only felt the angelic energy in my heart, but I could feel the difference between the archangels themselves, from Michael’s forceful presence to Raphael’s gentle energy.
When I began to call on the angels for assistance during my healings my clients, responded by telling me the treatments felt more powerful; a loving partnership was formed. I knew then I had found my life’s purpose. The more I worked with the angels, the more my awareness expanded, and I realized I was not limited to just helping people in the here and now; I could help them in all directions of time and on multiple dimensions. From the beginning, people have told me that I am ‘out there’. I reply by placing my hand over my heart and saying, “No, I am in here and it feels terrific.”
How does it work?
The human mind loves to complicate things, giving them a sense of grandeur or importance, but the simple answer is I heal from faith. Everything in the universe – and quite possibly the multiverse – is made of the same energy, and that energy works the same way in everything. The only difference is the vibratory rate of the molecules which make up a particular object, giving rise to different levels of consciousness or dimensions. Once we accept our connection to everything, the paradigm of our previous beliefs falls away and then anything is possible. ‘Energy Follows Thought’ is the new age mantra which encompasses not just healing but all aspect of our lives. When you think it, have faith in it and fill it with Love, then it will come to be. This is also true for any negative thoughts one may have. Being in one’s heart and working in conjunction with the angels helps keep negativity at bay.
No two healings are ever the same, but there are basic practices which I following. To begin a healing session I ground myself to Mother Earth and if applicable, to the patient’s planet of origin. (This information is provided intuitively by my angelic guides.) I then ask to become a crystal clear connection and channel for the Energy. I invite Archangel Michael to clear negative energy from my client and me. I also ask Archangel Raphael to help guide the session, and I remain open to receiving help from any angels or spirit guides who may wish to assist. Since all healing comes from Love, I request that my higher self help keep me in my heart and I ask the person’s higher self for permission to facilitate the healing. After this I set the intention to heal on all dimensional levels and in all directions of time, releasing everything that is not in the person’s highest good. Then I simply get out of the way and allow the Energy to flow through me, guiding me as it deems fit.
What do you expect a client to experience?
I don’t have expectations when it comes to healing. I discovered very quickly that everyone experiences these sessions differently. The same person can have a totally different experience from one healing session to the next. I do not wish to implant expectations, so I ask them to clear their minds as best they can or to think and feel only loving thoughts.
Does the healing affect you too when you do it?
I am definitely and positively affected by each healing. A sense of calm and peace washes through me. I will often feel as good, if not better, at the end of a healing as when I began. This is the tricky part. When I teach about healing, I stress that if a healer is using his or her own energy during a session, they will feel drained during and/or after the session. They may also feel as though they are going to spontaneously combust. Conversely, if a healer feels charged up after a session, then he or she may be (unknowingly) taking a lot of the energy for him or herself rather than allowing it to flow into their client. A healer is a facilitator and a witness rather than being the actual source or cause of the healing.
How do the angels help you in therapy?
During a healing session, the angels calm me, guide me, and occasionally give me messages to relay to the patient. I ask for and gratefully receive whatever help they wish to give me.
