Entering the world of healing started for me in 1996. At that time I had 9 brain surgeries over 2 years for a condition called hydrocephalus. The result of this condition is a cyst which grows in the skull. For me it grew to the size of a tennis ball. Other complication happened as well during those surgeries including twice having bacterial meningitis, an infection around the brain which causes fatality in 24 hours. The pain over those years was constant and excruciating.

A couple of years later, in college, my interest in healing lead me to the Emergency Health Services program at UMBC. Here I trained as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and in Search and Rescue.

After college I worked in apartment renovations. This went well for a couple of years until I herniated 2 discs in my back. The pain was debilitating. I could not pick up any object heavier than 5 pounds or walk without extreme pain. When I did walk it was only with the use of a cane. Steps were a miserable endeavor.

I went and saw a chiropractor regularly, who couldn’t help, as well as several back doctors and surgeons. All of them said the same thing, because of the type of injury there was nothing they could do, and surgery was too risky. The result was I would walk with a cane for the rest of my life in tremendous pain at only the age of 25.

As I was searching for ways to help my back, an old problem returned. The shunt which had been draining my cyst for 9 years failed. Brain surgeries number 10 and 11 were only months apart in 2008. An unfortunate result from the 11th surgery is that it weakened my lungs which resulted in 6 months of pneumonia.

After a life time of searching for answers elsewhere, and receiving few, I turned inward. The study of self healing became an all encompassing endeavor for me. The first largely noticeable result of this was my last brain surgery. After the surgery, for pain, I took 1 Tylenol dose a day for 3 days. Usually for pain, after a surgery of this type, a heavy load narcotics is prescribed to get by. The other major difference I made was being able to walk. Up to that point I could only walk with a cane, and with much pain at that. Months later I did a 10 mile hike. At this point I can lift 50 lbs without pain. I happily live without medications or chronic pain. I still have to be very aware of myself so that nothing springs up again though. I am not “cured” of the problems to my head and back. However I am able to make these problems painless 99% of the time.

The question then arises how is this possible? Self healing is a combination of many factors including energy flow, self awareness and control of the mind. Being aware of the self allows the ability to make constant small adjustments which prevents a major problem from occurring. In addition to awareness, energy flow heals existing problems. When combining awareness, energy and stillness of the body and mind, the self can do amazing things.

From working on myself, I have added working with others through the use of Reiki. To see people in relief from pain is a wonderful thing, however to teach people how to deal with and work on their own pain is even greater a joy. To Your Health,
