In February 2012, I joined Doreen Virtue for her Angel Healing Retreat at Sea! I could say it was a dream come true, but the truth is I would have never even DREAMED of being a part of something like this. The Angels guided me to take this journey, all the pieces fell into place and I found myself boarding the ship thinking the purpose was to learn from Doreen in person in advance of launching Spirit Makeover. To my surprise, learning became secondary to the healing I received.
Doreen’s lectures aboard the ship were indeed informative, but it was the healing meditations that really rocked my world. During the first one, we were guided to ask for whatever physical or emotional healing we wanted. I asked for my pelvic bones to be healed so that I would be able to walk through my pregnancy. (I was two-months pregnant when I boarded the ship.) I saw Jesus in my mind’s eye healing my pelvic bones!
I also received an emotional healing I never would have expected. To my surprise, I nearly had a panic attack just walking into the room on the first day. I was happy to be there, so I didn’t understand this reaction. Then, I raised my hand to ask Doreen why I felt so much fear. I began by explaining that my intention was to start seeing clients as soon as I got back home. Her response was that the source of my fear had to do with a previous life-time in which I was burned at the stake for being a witch. I wasn’t too surprised by this response. I had heard her say before that many Lightworkers were Lightworkers in previous lifetimes, as well. And, many of us had suffered persecution because of it. It still didn’t quite make sense to me. I knew, however, that she was speaking the truth.
The next day I listened to a guided meditation by Doreen I happened to bring with me. It lead me to see two of my previous lives: one as a nun in Latin America in the 1600s and one as a healer in Ireland in the 1500s. The emotion I felt when asked to experience the last few moments of life in these two lifetimes was the same: regret that I had contributed to my own demise and was leaving people while they were still in need of my help. Now it made sense to me. I wasn’t afraid so much for my own life in choosing to become a professional Lightworker in this life as I was afraid that that choice would somehow bring harm to my family.
As Doreen says, they no longer burn people at the stake for being witches. Still, there is often bias, marginalization, name-calling, etc. that no parent would want their child subjected to because of their chosen profession. With the help of the Angels, I have faced this fear and will lean on them if ever I feel my children are experiencing any negative impact from my work. I have faith the Angels with guide and protect us all as I commit to a life of serving others in this Light-filled way.
