When I was a little girl and I could see the energy waves around someone’s body, I would go touch it. More often than not the person would grab my little hand and stop me. It was very discouraging. They had no idea what I saw and I had no idea that they couldn’t see. Seeing energy has been a consistent high and a low in my life. Although it is now becoming fashionable to be able to see auras and the energy system but back in the 70’s/80’s and heck even the 90’s - it was weird and considered to be wicked. At times I thought maybe I was wicked. Or at least I could be if I choose to as I could see things others didn’t.
One of my first lessons in learning not everyone could see what I saw was in my first grade class at Holy Innocents in Neptune, NJ. This was a catholic elementary school but my reality came as Sister Veronica was giving an instruction on the Blessed Mother, Mary. She had taken a portrait of Mary off the wall in the hallway and brought it into class with her. She held the frame on the desk as she stood next to it talking about Mary. She spoke about how she was the chosen one to give birth to god’s son, how she was blessed as the mother of Jesus Christ. I can see the portrait still today, it was a lovely painting with Mary in a light blue gown, she held a baby in her lap that was to be her baby Jesus. She was very young looking and her face was so beautiful. Like an angel.
Then Sister Veronica started to talk about the ring around Mary’s head. She said that Mary had this because she was special, that her “Halo” was symbol of her greatness and her divine soul. I can vividly remember raising my hand and having half my butt out of my seat in such excitement! Finally! Finally! Someone was speaking about something I knew about! I was delighted. I get this! I see this! Sister Veronica had a unhappiness about her and her physical appearance did not seem to help her unpleasantness. She was what looked like to be ten feet tall to me at the age of 7. But realistically she was probably about 5’8”ish. She had black hair that scooped to the sides under her habit. The habit was black and draped to the floor. Around her head was a tiny piece of white paper that then was attached to the covering on the back of the head that was black. So from a distance as they (all the nuns there) walked down the halls it actually could resemble a halo.
Anyway back to my excitement! I was so delighted I wanted to share. Sister Veronica called on me as I was jumping out of my seat and with that I said; “We are all special, we all have that halo”. I do not recall what Sister Veronica said to me. But I do remember a massive sense of criticism. I remember being yelled at and told that no one was as special as Mary and only Mary and Saints have halos. She also let me know that I should not be able to see that on anyone or anything except in art. Then she instructed me to stand in the corner of the room for the rest of class.
The energy system has always been a staple in my life whether I wanted it to be or not. Some good, some bad, some scary as hell and some so amazingly beautiful. Finding the pathway alone with these skills was extremely challenging and painful. There were times of great loneliness and fear. Not being able to share what you saw made me quiet and isolated. There were mostly times that I felt unheard and not listened to, so why should I share. Even when I attended for my graduate degree in 2003-2005 in Holistic Health at Georgian Court University, I was in in my 30’s some of the grown women I was studying with could not relate to the experiences that I had had. They would roll their eyes in disbelief. And the guru head of the department I think feared I could see and know more then her so she was belittling to me. These were people studying health, wellness and spirituality at a graduate level! The disbelief will always continue but I am gladly moving through the incomprehension of others.
After a lifetime of seeing & knowing, practicing, studying, degrees and multiple certifications being continually led to work with these energies is following my path. So when people ask me what I do now I say; what I was always meant to do - I shift energy for people. Everyday I find an amazing elation of peace in that notion. It is true that I have a strong belief that; "it is the soul that is the most powerful aspect of the mind, body & soul as a trinity. It is our highest power - it is most prevalent in healing the body and mind. It is where wellness is achieved. This is why Blossoming Soul Therapies exists because it is true that if you have blossoming soul, you will have a healing body and you can purify your mind.
Gratefully - I saw meridian strings as a child and always wanted to play with them. Now people pay me to palpate their aura's; to attune their chakras, to align their meridians and speak a truth to them. My favorite part is that I receive feedback from clients saying that movement and positiveness has come into their lives since their sessions. The benefits for them have been career; financial, enhanced physical and mental health, clarity in their future; a strengthening in their fortitude and a sense of knowing themselves, specifically - knowing their souls. A client in March of this year thanked me for having her “consider” her soul, something she had never done before. Yes! My happiest and strongest moments are in considering my soul - And everyone's should be! I hold my head in pride of what I do because the response is not in whether or not I can prove it to you or if you believe me - it is in the growth of the soul that I am blessed to work with and for that I am filled with abundance of gratification that I can see and feel what others can’t.
Happiness to you and yours, Denise
