A few bits of possibly relevant information about Helen's
I was born into a strongly medical family. My granny used to be the only
one at the table who ate her meals slowly as the rest of us were all doctors
and used to having to get dinner down before the bleep called us away!
I consciously wanted to be a doctor from about the age of eleven but looking
back I don't think I really understood what doctoring involved. I was
(and probably still am!) full of romantic idealism and I thought I would
be able to help people to be happy. I thought curing their illnesses would
do this. It took me quite a while to realise that there are some people
who are not really ready to get rid of their illnesses and even longer
to understand that they have created their illnesses themselves.
I could probably see auras when I was a child, as can many children, and
I could definitely see angels but my highly scientific and rational family
decided I was simply being fanciful if I mentioned seeing anything beyond
the surface. So I learned to play the necesary games and since it was
inconvenient to see things other people couldn't see and sometimes embarrassing
to see what they didn't want me to see and sometimes frightening to see
the unpleasant things that went on in people's auras, especially if that
unpleasantness was directed towards myself, when I was five I became very
ill with diptheria, was unconscious for a few days and then came back
unable to see anything except what was visible to my physical eyes.
It wasn't until I was seventeen that I once again saw with my inner eyes,
the eyes of the soul, and realised that the essence of everything around
me was pure love. I never forgot that experience and even though I went
back to seeing only the material world, I knew that what I had seen was
the real truth of the universe.
Whilst I was a medical student and junior doctor it gradually dawned on
me that the medical model of illness we were given didn't explain certain
things and when I worked as a g.p.in Canada it became even more obvious
that people's physical illnesses were directly responsive to their mental/emotional
states. I came across the Bach Flower remedies and, more importantly to
me, Bach's writings and my perception of the nature of illness gradually
changed. Then someone lent me Lyall Watson's Supernature and I followed
up that path by reading everything I could get hold of about parapsychology
and auras, which wasn't a lot in the early 1980s.
I had four small children and I wanted to be with them as much as I could
so I quit working for a health service and began to do my own more holistic
work. The things I now believe and on which I base my work have evolved
out of the work itself.
My work with a client is to listen to what is going on under the surface.
I just stay centered, place my hands over the part of the body where the
illness is focussed or the part where I sense a disturbance of the energy
and then I wait and allow myself to be aware of whatever it is that other
person's aura wants to communicate. The information comes up in layers.
I listen to each layer, communicate it and go on to the next one. The
pure truth of the person's soul is always there at the bottom of everything
and that pure truth is their solution to whatever is wrong with their
bodies or their lives. I know this because I have seen for myself how
I have no idea how this is done. What is it within each of us that can
select a few relevant scenes from one person's life and bring them forward
in a logical self-explanatory sequence in such a way that they become
accessible to another person? It is a mystery to me and a marvel. I am
constantly enthralled and amazed and I learn something new about the true
nature of Creation from every client I see. I cannot think of any job
I would rather do for a living.
When I entered medical school I believed that there was nothing beyond
the material world, that the only reality was that which could be perceived
with the physical senses and preferably reproducibly measured with some
physical instrument. A year or so ago I had a discussion with my father
who was ill but refused healing on the grounds that it couldn't possibly
work. He was unconvinced by the photographs of water in Masuro Emoto's
books saying he would need a statistically sigificant amount of reproducible
data in order to believe that the water had truly been affected by people's
thoughts. (So you can see where my beliefs came from!) As I had never
in my life won any argument with my father I realised I had no chance
in this one so I let it drop but left him a gift of money to be used to
pay for healing (or chocolate cake if he was so inclined!) He never used
it. He died recently. When I stood in the room where his body was laid
out, the feeling of love pouring off the place where he lay was almost
physically palpable, it was so powerful. When his body was later placed
in a coffin, that feeling of love stayed in the bed and then came with
us to the funeral. I know this was my father's soul. If he could have
spoken, I expect he would have agreed!
It is good to know that there is something other than the material world,
something that infuses everything with pure love. I know it because I
have seen it in the people I work with. This isn't a matter of faith.
It is a certainty and I am glad that it is so.
Besides my work I love my family and my friends, I love gardening and
planting trees and I delight in glitter, especially in excess! I love
music, especially J.S. Bach's and any really good guitar playing such
as by David Gilmour and Eric Clapton and also Johnny Cash's video 'Hurt'.
I read only fiction, mainly fantasy adventure, favourites being Terry
Pratchett's discworld books and Stephen Erikson. I love going to the cinema.
especially the Chinese/Japanese martial arts films from Kurosawa onwards.
I don't like computers, mobile phones or microwaves. I don't like impositional
systems or the people who implement them and I hate scam artists!
If there is anything else you want to know, you will have to phone me
and ask! No e.mails please -for your benefit- as I am highly unlikely
to manage to read them mainly because I don't really want to! (The best
of all reasons.
I will be putting the articles I have written onto this site whenever
I can persuade my highly computer literate third son to help me to do
