How I started on my Path as a Healer
Well, many questions pop up in my center or healing sessions about how I got started being a healer. Let’s just say in past lives I have been different types of healers. Let that thought fly out of your mind and then I can say that I was speaking to my angels, guides and animals and seeing the dead as a little girl.
First encounter with spirits was as a baby but I couldn't speak as I used to see orbs and cry when I was around my family. I then talked to my angels since then when I understood how to speak and talk in my prayers. At times; I had an imaginary friend or friends. These were my angels and guides. I didn’t know their names because I didn’t know what to ask.
My parents were not ones to sit down and talk about talking to angels and how to dialogue or my guides. I spent a lot of time playing alone and spoke to my animals. I didn’t know I was speaking with my mind and or thinking about the process or analyzing. I just thought about speaking and it is happening. I didn’t keep records as to when it started but it started at a young age.
When my little sister died in front of our family on an airplane without doctor or CPR knowledge from the flight crew; that was the first time I saw a soul leave it’s body. I didn't have anyone to talk to or dialogue because my mother was holding her and in shock and crying and my Dad was asking for medical help that never came.
I used to experience these diverse souls in my Mom’s room. All ages, sizes, time periods of languages I didn’t know. I would ask them to speak clearer or louder to understand. They all talked at once too loud and then I said, “I am sorry, I cannot hear you all talking at the same time and words/languages I don’t understand. I am leaving.” I would run past the room and this was 4 to 5 years old.
As I was growing up; in traumatic experiences and places; I got stronger in the choices of my guides and angels 8 years old onwards. I would ask for more inspiring ones and they would be replaced with the desolate place I lived in. I began to hear more dialogue with angels telling me this would happen and trust me. Then I would learn air and fire by playful methods of being asked to blow towards the candles on church altars and make the flame go in different directions like left or right, etc. during mass. I was in the choir so Spirit/God was teaching me by unharmful play.
Then I got stronger hearing the animals. I was frustrated living with so many animals that we couldn’t provide enough food or care and some ran away or passed. I spoke a lot to our family dog. My family were dog people but sometimes cats choose us.
My dogs would always do human-like things like open a door that was unlocked, sit on the couch like me or whine or cry when I cried and lick my face when I was sad. I then had these gifts of knowing when a person would pass in divine timing because I asked for divine timing and not a mass of information from everywhere. I gave messages to folks in my teens but my parents were scared of my revelations that were just simple things but they were scared. They kept me away from crowds or people unless they were there, especially my Mom.
I then began to see things like if I wondered if someone was okay near or far and see them. I would know to call or write to them. I would only ask innocent questions. I listened a lot and let people talk. People were drawn to me because I like to listen and hear their stories. I have been a storyteller and creative writer since I was little.
I would draw a picture to go with my writings and my 6th grade teacher tried to get my parents to drive me to higher achiever schools and showed my work to professors of the Univ. of AZ. He tried but my parents weren’t willing to drive me let alone they couldn’t feed me and my brother’s properly or clothe us properly. My brother and Dad used to say you think you are better than us.
I would be hurt by those comments. I didn’t ever get the chance because my parents didn’t value education.
I did go to Univ. of AZ because my Mom worked there and my scholarships to colleges were passed up because they wanted to send me there without money to pay for lodging or attempt to find or travel with me there.
So I miserably stayed in AZ. I didn’t like our life. There were a few incidents I knew when loved ones passed and they spoke to me from a distance from the bed as they lay dying. Pretty soon I would have conversations with them of their choosing asking me to die or stay and I would guide them to ask themselves and their choices to weigh out and question. I would tell them in my mind to their soul and mind and body asking ‘thy will be done’ and it is your sacred contract to leave or go. It is not my mind, body and soul and your sacred decision must only come from you and no one else. Then they would speak to me the day dying from a distance and tell me and make sure they were sure and I would give them a nod and tell them their choice was sacred and thank them for including me in their decision.
I then realized I could be feeling others is what I would do and seeing and hearing energy. I didn’t know what that was and again my parents never wished to talk about it with me or have discussions amongst themselves. They were unhappily married healers enhancing karma within and between and upon us kids. We had to be aware of that later.
As I grew; I could see the dead watching me I would encounter in divine timing. Divine timing is able to fully focus on the healing needed and not be spread out and given the time and guided healing for the individual requesting. I later would read books on healing with Sylvia Browne and my guide was materializing in real time and learned her name. I began to learn their story and names and images and hear them. I then did this with my angels as well and for others terminally ill.
Then as time went on I learned the importance of colors and number meanings via Sylvia Browne. I then began to study Reiki and then would learn next levels psychically or being next to my teachers energy field to gain wisdom and knowledge and practice on myself. I would practice on the dog and then I was asking God what was, if any, the next lesson.
My husband and I had an allergy free cleaning business for pets, carpets and homes, He had me work on a dog from a shelter that a woman adopted and called us out to clean. I talked to the dog psychically and did Reiki and got the story of the dog, how it arrived, owner, and what happened and how it ended up at the house with this woman and the problem of her inconsistent disciplining methods. I passed the message of the dog to her and she confirmed details and then we finished cleaning her carpets and then loaded up and the dog wanted to go with me but I energetically did a wink and mental conversation with the dog to give her a chance and corrected her disciplining methods to not confuse the dog. After 2 weeks she called and asked my husband what I did to her dog because she is the most calm and behaved as ever. He told her you asked her to do Reiki and she did it.
After a while, I learned Shamanism as God guided me next to learn. I was reading books on energy in other realms and understanding death and life via Sylvia Browne. I also read the Carolyn Myss book on healing with chakras and body energy etc. I then was told to learn Shamanism. I researched the next teacher of light I call it. I found the school. There were no certifications and it was new. There were 3 Shamans and I was blessed. It was started by a group of very advanced healers. I came after a few weeks from an car accident to the circle they started. The leader was going through a loss of a loved one and his marriage. He told me that he didn’t know why he felt safe to share this with me and if I didn’t want to come; then he would understand because his energy was off. I came guided by God and Archangel Michael.
I arrived and to my surprise I was placed in the South and thought it a mistake as they were all older healers than I at the time and surely would be moved but I was put there.
I was asked to do a healing on the leader and the two shamans who learned Peruvian healing moved their heads like a dog side to side listening to my prayers of his healing. I then knew they heard my thoughts. OMG. Then after a few weeks the leader and the other Peruvian shaman said I would receive my spirit name after 3 visits to the circle. I received and heard Ancients chant my name during a healing with my future healing partner (lymphatic cancer) on a woman.
I felt and saw a white light come into my head and through my heart and bowed. They saw it. My name is "ButterflyChild.” I was told I would learn as I worked my energy. I was spoken to telepathically off and on from my teacher about the next healing session or what to do in a healing session in circle.
Then the leader said you must be comfortable being feminine due to my violations of my molester. I asked how? He laughed and said, “You will figure that out.” I then said, “Okay.” I then was getting some tarot cards by Spirit. I went into a bookstore; and it was the same one my foot energetically got sparked energy from getting a Reiki book there every step throughout the time I was called to the metaphysical store. I saw tarot and then I chose the Goddess Oracle.
I learned about the different Goddesses around the world and their lessons and their meditation, story and healing exercises. I then formed Goddess Gatherings and my leader and Shamans were pleased with my work. I learned more about relationships, myself and others via the Goddesses and heard their stories, developed exercises and food, empowerment mesa, etc.
I then continued and learned about the Gods of different deities, Then I bought the Ascended Master tarot as I was interested and researched and worked a bit with them and the Angels and Archangels and Archeia. I worked with these angels in divine timing. I have not worked with all listed on the net but then I learned to speak and see the guides on clients that I worked on and shared. I then learned the tribal crystal healing the Maori tribes. I would journey to different realms faster than with the Shamanic circle to obtain knowledge. By the way, I journeyed dimensions and learned to assist myself and others while in the school of shamanism.
I then got a Buddha deck from a woman who saw Buddalike energy from me. I worked a few times but it was only to hold energy and to keep it. Then I got a Native American tarot deck and used that on myself and others on my own to understand others and myself in situations.
I learned about pendulums and worked with these as the crystals were talking to me about their stories. I have the gift of psychometry to hold or near a person or object to learn it’s story and tell it for them because they knew I was a storyteller before I realized it. I went to a psychic school and learned more techniques to clear energy and work with myself and trust in God and my hearing, seeing and knowing. I was taught other techniques via Ascended Master Jesus. Mother Mary and other pure light helpers.
The Ascended Master Deck helped me align with many ascended masters with my healing, relationship with others and they work with me in sessions. And then I moved onto learn reflexology on hands, feet and ears at the same time I was just learning Reiki. I then was asked to go to the capitol, Emory nursing college and nurses day to speak and demonstrate and create reflexology awareness events. After that; I was told to stop learning and take all that I learned. I was called a few times to lecture on radio stations on reflexology and speak at peace conferences.
I then had a 5 year test. God told me to assist my family with all that I learned to help. We were battling the city of Montgomery Alabama in court frequently about a property we bought to uplift the minority neighborhood near the Rosa Parks district. I used energy requests to protect my husband from jail or harm and his brother and his attorney with all the Pure Light helpers I knew. I then had the court overturn the lies if they tried to be spoken weren’t pure...they would stutter and the judge would dismiss the cases but they kept calling him back to court and damaging his property when he renovated. It was horrible and we all experienced stressed and energetic illnesses materialized into physical. It was hell on earth already for us but I kept praying and using what I learned to dissolve the darkness in their mind and heart by requesting everyone’s faith in justice and truth from a distance. In the end the city gave up and allowed someone to buy it for the amount we had paid for it and more to cover the amount of renovations that were undone every time my husband left town. During this time, our daughter was having problems coming out and had to deal with the acceptance and understanding of each other. Then I studied being a Reverend under the advise of my ReikiMaster because they didn't want me to do any of my work with reflexology until I took a full course of massage in which the schools do a skimp runover of that in their massage. I can tell when someone hasn't taken the intense reflexology course. Reverendship allowed me to touch and do the work I was meant to do with intentional prayer. So then I got into Ayurvedic studies for an 18 month course because I wanted to heal my son and husband off issues and my daughter if any was there. I learned the basic course from Dr. Vasant Lad in Santa Fe, NM. I loved the detailed information to learn how the body types, seasons, tendencies in genetics and the regions where you live have certain afflictions and what the dosha/body types to identify as and what foods, spices, etc are medicine for some body types and poison to others. I went to attend a conference in Miami, FL and met a group of western trained and Ayurvedic trained doctors in this workshop/seminar. They were into their brains alot. I was drawn to an yogi who had a school and was invited to teach and speak of the importance of centering and emptying the mind. He looked at my energy and was drawn to me and his son who ran the school. In the end, I humbly went to him and he invited me to his school. I got details and he wanted a picture with me. He is the one yogi I am standing by who you can clearly see his energy is so peaceful. I wanted to feel that.
At the same time, I learned to clear energy in houses that we had rented out or owned of souls needing departing to the light and healing. I would speak with my mind after I learned basic Shamanic techniques and help them reach the light while they are also attached to objects instead of property. So I am fortunate to be given divine timing to learn, practice and grow. During this period, I was attending chiropractic offices and doing the reflexology, corporate chair massage with aromatherapy and ionic foot detox, then I worked at a spa on Powers Ferry Landing for upscale residents for what I do. After that I worked a body detox center utilizing herbs. I would also work on people during sound healing called sound immersions with tuning forks to help joint tightness and joint pain. I worked on one chiropractor that he raved about me in Marietta. I did attend psychic fairs 12 years ago to be a different add on at the Horizon Healing Center and Body-MInd-Spirit Expo in Gwinnett county with the psychic school.
We then opened Healium Center and were healing as we developed and learned healing activities we practiced at home with our highly creative kids and shared these with others. We grew so much from Healium. We learned our weaknesses and strengths and we grew with others. Blood, sweat and tears but also strength, laughter and joy and shared it all like our small family was a bigger family. We showed compassion and embraced all. I cannot tell you how rewarding it was and how much of a task we were given for 6 to 7 years. We are changing our path after covid but we are designed to grow and move forward. Now you understand our story and a little bit of the years of dedication to growth and healing starts with learning, practicing, tweaking, continual learning and growing never stops. Keep your EGO in check and you will be rewarded by your pure intentions with others you can help reach theirs. Yes, the ego can mess things up for you and others if you don’t catch it. Negatives are from self absorbed thoughts, actions and words. Having a compassionate heart with discernment is important to pray for.
So that’s the story so far for me. Take heed and listen to God and your heart. Clear your energy, home and work space with pure light. Love yourself and show gratitude for your journey so far and beyond. You are unlimited creative beings of light after all. Besides that I have learned acupressure, corporate chair massage, a bit of Thai massage, lymphatic facial massage and ionic footbath services. I grew into creating sacred life ceremonies for people because I love creating rituals of celebration of life or honoring death or joy. So the road continues forward for me. Thank you and that's all.
