There comes a point in everyone’s life when you realize that no one else is going to do it, so you need to. Growing up observing my mother being struck by rheumatoid arthritis at the age of twenty three after her father’s passing. The notion did not escape me that the grief ricocheted through her entire skeleton was instrumental to ending my mother’s physical well-being.
Thirty years later a tumor manifested from the rheumatoid medication sending my father in a tailspin of helplessness along with decades of unresolved emotional trauma. The slow burning depression toppled into a full breakdown as I watched Western medicine treat the physical but ignore emotional sobbing and the soul’s torment. They didn’t think it mattered until it manifested into matter and now it mattered a lot. I thought someone else was going to solve this problem but that was supposed to be me; willful ignorance now was not an option.
This gung-ho approach to firefighting dis-ease, tranquilizing emptiness and pretending all was fine was now over and it was a mighty mountain to climb, one step at a time. As I threw myself into learning Reiki mainly for my own sanity my Reiki Master suggested from her deep inner knowing to learn Emotional Freedom Technique which I unwillingly succumbed. Not only was I to try and describe the invisible healing heat emanating from my hands but now the crazy tapping jumped on the band wagon but my father’s severe clinical depression and my mother’s cancer eclipsed my embarrassment. This was not about what others thought of me, or my own insecurity; it was about healing the two most treasured people I knew.
Both my parents are Reiki II students on their own journey to joy, fit, healthy and living deep appreciation for each new opportunity to grow and embrace unawareness. When the calling to come to Los Angeles presented itself I realized it was bigger than me as the immediate feeling was to run but something else kept pulling me here. Immediately doors opened were there were no doors and Patti eternally grateful to Gurmukh Khalsa the Queen of Kundalini, Vanity Fair, 2007 for her personal endorsement to attune the pregnant women of the world famous Golden Bridge Yoga.
