Anya is the mother of a teenage daughter and as we all know, the teenage years are not often easy for either parent or teen. This story takes place one evening when Anya was home with her 17 year old daughter, who was not in the best of moods at that time. In a heated response, fueled by teenage angst to her mother questioning her plans for the evening, Anya’s daughter tossed a small wastepaper basket at Anya hitting and bruising her ankle. Later that evening Anya, who is a dear friend of mine, called asking if I could help her. She told me what had happened and that she couldn’t put any pressure on her foot, so walking was very uncomfortable. She wondered if I could ease the pain through distance healing and I said, “Yes, I’m sure I could.” I then began sending energy to heal her ankle, even though she was in Florida while I was in New York, and within seconds she felt a difference. After a few minutes the pain was gone. When an injury, whether minor or significant, is fresh, it's always much easier to release than when it has been present for a long time. This is because the mind has not locked in and claimed this experience as valid, so the body experiences this in between time as a degree of a shock - how much of a degree depends on the experience. The greater the degree of shock, the more readily the situation can be rectified. When working with distance healing, it doesn’t truly matter what the issue is or how long it's been present. All that matters is that the individual is open to releasing the trauma that created it. I have worked with people throughout the U.S. and in many countries around the world with distance healing and the results have always been positive and effective. It’s a wonderful way to assist another when I can’t be there in person.
