we can only walk our walk, talk our talk.. live in our truth.. really I have absolutely no clue what anyone else needs to do.. don't need to know.. they do.. if they don't want to know about "energy" medicine then that's great.. I just find soemthing else to talk about.. doesn't matter.. what's important is the relationship .. that's all.. all the education they need for anything to do with spirit is within..
re your comment.."" I was told that I wouldn't get well, too""
I have a saying that I actually came up with myself a while ago
"people do not see you for who you are, they see you for who they are".. people don't necessarily want a different you because that would mean a different them... and that could be a scary thing for them..
Well I can't find it anywhere.. You left it for everone it appears so I am not sure where to find it..
Anyway, this is the email I receieved from you, so I will answer this ..
A message from Janet to all members of Alternative Healers Practitioners on Zoomers!
A friend sent the film to me a couple of days ago. Certainly it touched my heart.
I'm a spiritual healer/Reiki Master, etc etc so am pleased to find this group, Mark.
A friend had a quadruple bypass last winter and i am wondering how long ago you had the surgery? He isn't running marathons yet but does work out daily.
Did you go through a transformational experience as a result of the surgery? I've just retired from my job which was working with people who are going through spiritual emergency.
I am much interested in quality of life in the aging process, brain fitness...just staying healthy! :-)
If you check out my web site, www.vibrationalvitality.com , and click on "about Mark", you will see my story there, or some of it.
I had the surgery July 21, 2006. I ran my first 10 km race the following spring April,2007. Since then I have raced in 3 x 10 kms, 3 x half marathons (another one in February) and 2 x full marathons (another coming next May).
Having never ran before in my life it was not like coming back to something I knew but was a whole new experience. I am also teaching others how to run half and full marathons now with the Running Room clinics. My goal now is to run an ultra marathon.
By the way, I have totally reversed my heart disease so it is totally possible. Of course, I chose to not belief what all the naysayers were saying, including my cardiologist. But I have always believed deeply in myself and what I can accompolish with intelligent goals and great support. My cardiologist called me some time earler this year and told me to stop taking all my medication because it was obvious they were not doing me any good any more. It was the first time in over 30 years of his practice that he had been able to say that !!
Was it a total tranformation for me? Well, I have always been involved with things of a more "spiritual" nature (I really hesitate in using that word because of what it conjures up for so many). Through the years I have also done a lot of work on myself on an emotional level and psychological level.
Physically, I smoked right up to the day I walked in to the hospital with a heart attack. My diet was your average SCD- Standard Canadian Diet- french fries and steak, hahahaha. And like I said, I never ran or did any execise. I weighed 263 lbs at time of heart surgery.
Today, I am totally low-fat, vegan. I weigh 180 lbs. I run almost every day, do yoga 2-3 times per week, strength training 2-3 x week, meditate- although I did do that before it is now a regular practice for me.
So did I change? Perhaps and perhaps not. I simply see it as just being on my path and doing what I need to do. And it does not feel like all that big a deal to me. Anyone can do this. I am not at all special. All it really takes is making the choice and then a lot of hard work. It certainly is not for procrastinators or those afraid to let go. But for me it was an easy choice because the alternative sucked and I had already been living the alterantive for a long time. It was now time to live another way and see what that was like. Glad I did make that choice because I love who I am now !!!!!!
