My Life Path
I remember choosing my mother, before I was born. I was attracted to her high energy and her psychic gifts, and her love of music and nature, but I was also aware of her sadness, and I believed that I could heal her with my love.
Once I came into her energy field, I knew I had made a great mistake. Her extreme mood swings, her anger, her unpredictability were so disruptive and frightening to me!
We became locked in a love-hate relationship. When she was up, she adored me, but when she was down, she dragged me down with her. I felt trapped, powerless, scared, and vulnerable. It was not safe to be seen. I found that the only way I could survive in such a totally unpredictable environment was to close down my emotions.
When I was 13, my beloved older brother took his own life. I did not know how to grieve. I felt shut off, numb, and distrustful. Later, when I lost my baby girl, I still did not know how to grieve.
Ten years later, I met my mentor, Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, who taught me how to get in touch with my emotions. That was the greatest gift. I finally gave myself permission to cry, to grieve, to scream, to feel my pain. I chose to let my teacher help me. I chose to become vulnerable, exposed, and trusting.
Then I became a Grief Counselor. I helped start a Hospice and trained volunteers. Having experienced the pain of several love-hate relationships; having struggled to find a sense of self-respect and self-empowerment and a sense of connection with the Divine, having found the tools to lift myself up out of the morass of self-pity, out of identifying with being the victim—and knowing how desperate my inner child was for unconditional love and affection and understanding—I became a woman who was capable of sharing deep compassion and empathy with others. I began to teach Grief and Loss Workshops.
The Grief and Loss segment opened up boxed-in tensions and fears and began to crack the cocoon of imprisonment, starting the process of healing and growing. Joy provides a safe and loving atmosphere to let go of the garbage, to feel the support, be yourself and grow.
I was told, in my meditations, that I would become a Spiritual Healer. I met Rev. Helena Ram, and soon I was leading people on Spiritual Journeys, like a waking dream. I met my Spirit Guides, and they taught me about chakras and color and crystals. Then I wrote a book about Color and Crystals—A Journey through the Chakras. It was one of the first books in America on the chakras.
About fifty years have passed since then. But my calling is still to help others to express their emotions and then to find peace within themselves; to recover from loss, or from having lived with abuse and trauma; to find the gift in that. In fact, now I have learned to find the gift in virtually every aspect of human suffering.
You have helped me so much, more than you know, and I want for others in times of darkness to experience your ability to shape shift energy and wise counsel.
I have come to believe that all physical and mental/emotional ailments, even so-called accidents, have an underlying emotional component. Once you weed out the underlying cause, it becomes fairly simple to recover from the ailment. Underneath it all, the root problem is almost always some variation on not having received true unconditional love and affection.
It is because of my precious Mentors, who bathed me in unconditional love and acceptance, who noticed my gifts and who loved and encouraged me—as my own parents could not. Because of them, I was able to grow up my inner child and allow her to take her rightful place in the world. Because of them, I can now share the profound gifts that they have given me; the gifts of unconditional love and acceptance, and the gifts of so many helpful techniques to weed out the pain and toxins and grief that were stored in my flesh and blood and bones and in the deepest recesses of my mind and heart and gut.
Now I stand naked and proud and humble before you. Naked because there is no longer anything to hide. Proud because I had the strength and fortitude and perseverance to seek out my Mentors, and to follow my Guidance—even when it seemed crazy. Humble because I stand in the Presence of the Divine and I am overwhelmed with gratitude to be carrying this enormous Gift.
My passion is empowering you to connect with your own highest Guidance, to become All That You Can Be, and helping you to realize your own deepest desire to find your unique Gift, so that you can truly make a difference in the world.
I am so blessed in my life now, to have manifested this incredible Mystery School, to work intensely with students I love, to have a deeply fulfilling intimate relationship, to have precious friends, to live in my own adorable home, in an environment on the Big Island that most people only dream of, and to have incredibly good health and a body that serves me well, even into my mid seventies.
I immensely enjoy having Joy as a mentor and teacher. I couldn’t imagine anyone else to do a Mystery School with.
