About Rea ~ in her own words
I was drawn towards healing as a direct result of a huge amount of stress in my own life over 23 years ago.
I was born in Southern Ireland in the fifties and I experienced pain on many levels. Although I was born into a Catholic family somehow I did not resonate with the Catholic Church, however I certainly did resonate with the nature Kingdom, with animals and I truly believed in Fairies , Angels and the Beloved Ascended Masters. Some might say I created an imaginary world to take me from the reality of what was taking place around me, but even as a child I knew on a deep level which was real and which was imaginary. Because of my childhood I became sensitive and caring but also anxious and nervous in the most unexpected ways.
The years passed and my life taught me not to just judge people on their appearances and behaviour . I developed an innate sense of compassion and caring because of how I myself was crying out to be loved and cared for. It would take me a long time to learn the difference between care taking and care giving and to find the balance between the two.
I moved to Nottingham 28 years ago with my husband Jeremy and our two sons but 23 years ago crisis struck and our family’s stress levels went through the roof. My husband gave up his career which paid him a very lucrative income.
I felt so alone, so scared, so insecure. Still connected to the nature kingdom and the Angelic Kingdom I found just as in my childhood my only sense of peace. One day by chance I came upon and advertisement for Spiritual healing once a week at Nottingham City Library. I decided to take a chance and go along. I was greeted by a wonderful white haired old lady with open arms and an open mind. I talked, I cried and all I could feel was love and understanding. She stood behind me and began her healing work. I felt still and safe and warm as the healing energies flowed through me and over me. Nothing had changed on the outside but somehow I felt lighter and hope for myself and my family. I returned once a week for a long time until one day my healer Beryl said it was now time for me to train to become a healer myself. I was overjoyed that she should say this to me and I began a three year journey to become a full healer member of the NFSH and I carried out many healing on a voluntary basis during that time.
Stress can affect us on many levels simultaneously. Through the act of healing a natural flow of beneficial energy between the healer and the recipient bring the recipients energy system into balance allowing the recipients own body and being to heal itself. It is a process of revitalisation, relaxation and release at a profound level, which helps your body to adjust and heal spontaneously at its own pace and in its own way. Healing seeks out the underlying case as well as the “presenting symptom”.
Healing is about restoring balance to our life and in your relationships with others, about expressing feelings, about change and the need for it. It often helps bring a sense of proportion and perspective and a greater feeling of “feet on the ground”, of regaining control, irrespective of whether you are ill or not. It can be especially helpful in crisis situations and with terminal illness. It can stand alone as a therapy, has no harmful side effects and works well with any other therapy. It is a process, above all, to help you to help yourself.
