I love working on sceptics. Healthy Sceptics who need a hand with wellness are the most AWESOME clients ever.
Shane came to me with pain in both his wrists after Carpal Tunnel operations.
He said afterwards, that his pain had been at a constant 6 out of 10, and he could kind of put up with it, BUT the reason that really propelled him along, was that his hands were closing up when he was resting. The Doctors told him 'that sometimes happens'.
His friend told him to come see me. Shane was about the most sceptic guy I knew.
He left with a 0 - thats zero pain, saying he didn't believe in it, but it worked. I didn't need him to believe in it - it was enough that he came along. I was pleased I helped him, but HUGELY dismayed thinking about all the people in the world who suffer needlessly because they don't know this healing could help them.
Healthy sceptics want to know something is going to work for them. (So do most people, right?)
Healthy sceptics are willing to try something, even though they are not sure exactly what it is - if it proves to be good for them, they are ok embracing it.
Most sceptics are in one of two boats:
1. They have not had an experience with healing, or do not know of it, or understand it.
2. They have not had an experience that was effective. Perhaps because they needed more than one treatment or did not trust the person they were working with.
The Other Sceptics: Some sceptics have a cognitive dissonance around healing. A fancy term for just not accepting something, because it would cause their whole belief system to register stress. Because we rely a lot on our world view - if we are a person who is cemented in a belief, when someone presents us with something that doesn't support our belief, we can be scared/triggered or even angry. And that's perfectly ok. This person is unlikely to present themselves for healing in the first place. Fine by me, and I mean that in a kind way - not a stick that in your pipe and smoke it way. I am here to a. bring you less stress and b. work for your money.
I'm not here to waste my time or your money talking to you if you won't/can't hear me.
That's really important.
So - first off - and I know this isn't really first because here I am down the page a way, but still - there is something to get straight here. I am, most definitely, a former sceptic. Why? I 'saw' things when I was small. BUT I was told they weren't real by other people that couldn't see them. They were wrong, and those things were real. My vision just worked slightly outside the boundaries of the 'accepted' human visionary field.
Secondly - I am a meccano, lego, engineering minded kind of fixit girl. I own more tools than many people, I can back a trailer better than many men - I like to know how things go together, and how they come apart - not necessarily in that order. I LOVE results.
So if something doesn't WORK, I am not interested - but if it works - I REALLY WANT TO KNOW.
So two things are amazing to me. One - we are all surrounded by energy that can be harnessed, we just don't tend to know how to do that for our best benefit. And Two - I can harness it - or at least direct it, and I am SO lucky because my clients give me amazing testimonies to their results - like the one below.
(And may I just say - the gentleman that gave me the testimonial below, actually cancelled TWICE before he came. He really was iffy about coming along.) He is also private about his work and personal life, but is willing to speak directly to people about the healing, if they genuinely are interested in having some.
So here is this testimonial - and I'm truly grateful for it.
Personal testimonial for Deb:
'I was extremely sceptical and cynical of anything of this nature. To me, if it couldn’t be identified, isolated, tested and re-tested using the scientific method – then it didn’t exist. My close, trusted (and similarly sceptical) friend had seen Deb and was floored by her abilities, still unconvinced – I sent my partner along and she was likewise astounded. Both of them were deeply affected by their session with Deb. Begrudgingly I made a booking and went to see what all the fuss was about. The best way I can describe my experience is: profound. Before I walked in I felt “heavy”, not a physical heaviness but a sense that I was wading through water all the time and had a great weight on my shoulders. When I left Deb after 90 minutes (was meant to be an hour but I made her keep going with the session!), I felt completely different. Lighter, somehow ‘free’ and indelibly changed in ways I’m still trying to come to terms with. I can’t begin to understand how Deb did what she did but I can attest to the fact that she can do things that defy explanation.
She knew things she shouldn’t possibly know and revealed things to me that were confronting and challenging but also uplifting, inspiring and incredibly emotional. She somehow elicits a tangible, physical change in your body without touching you? This, I cannot explain.
My experience with Deb has left me reeling and there is no doubt in my mind that I have been changed forever. I have purposely avoided emotive words like ‘miraculous’, ‘spiritual’ or ‘angelic’ but they are entirely apt ways to describe who Deb is and what she does.
Open your mind or keep it closed, it really doesn’t matter – but if you want a legitimately ‘life altering’ experience then go and see Deb.
You will leave a different person.'
This is why I love the work, and also why it's important for healers and light workers to keep sharing the possibilities with people who have never had the experiences, even though it's sometimes considered scary. Those people we work on, who are profoundly affected, share their stories bit by bit with people who trust them, and in that way, they share possibility, open eyes, ears, hearts and doors to a world of wellness that otherwise escapes people.
It's so, so important to share.
If this article helps you I'd love to know. I work all over the world, and all over the country, but there are many people in your area that also offer healing. If you are not inspired to come to me, at least keep questioning, and learning about the possibilities of healing, seek out friends who have had great local experiences and, if you need to draw the courage from them, do it, and go along to see a healer. Maybe I can even recommend one in your area.
Energy healing changes lives every day. There are more than 4 million Reiki Level One healers in the world. That's just one form of healing in a vast sea of available modalities.
What on earth would they all be doing it for if it wasn't real?
