Healing Stories with V: Accepting the death of a loved one and healing childhood wounds

A vibrant sunset with orange, yellow, blue, purple and pink hues to inspire connection with the energy around us

This is the first entry of a new series that I’m calling “Healing Stories.” I will be sharing healing stories of clients (with permission) and of my own here. The aim of this series is to inspire courage within each of us to go within and heal through witnessing the courageous journeys of others that do the same.

In each of these journeys, the protagonist is guided into a deep meditative state where we ask the intuition to come through. The intuition then guides them through these multi-sensory journeys to heal by bringing balance in mind, body, and energy. And the results? Beyond words.


V was struggling because her close friend’s dad was in critical condition in the hospital due to Covid. She was trying to send healing and feeling very attached to the situation. It was really affecting her emotionally and energetically.

As we began the session, the first thing that came in for her was the word Peace. We asked peace to come in, in a column of light, and surround her body so that she could breathe it in with every breath. I then began a slow guided process of bringing in her own intuition as well as energies in line with her highest good down through her crown and into her body.

When we got to the arms, there was a lot of energy there. We kept our focus in the arms and hands for a while. It felt like channels needed to open up here to allow more flow in and out. Suddenly, energy began surging through her hands. She said it felt like a release for her heart.

We continued down through the body until we reached the lower belly. Here there was a strong energy again and we were guided to place attention in her ovaries and uterus. She watched in her mind’s eye as it turned into a beautiful, peaceful garden. The Garden of Eden appeared to me intuitively – a garden of physical creation. She imagined sitting down by a stream with her feet in the water.

She allowed the water to flow up through her feet and her entire body. It was a beautiful, calm feeling as the water cleansed her whole body. We asked that it cleanse the energy and the physical body to open her up to more connection and presence on earth. We were then guided to her sacrum and tailbone.

In the sacrum, we asked that a grounding cord connect her energy with the center of the earth, connecting her physically on the earth in the best way for her. It felt as if there were other people trying to connect into her grounding cord. We asked that those be removed and that grounding cord copies to anyone that needed them.

She saw three holes in her aura. Then we asked for assistance to strengthen her grounding and for help in healing any affinities that she held that kept these holes open in her aura and allowed others to connect in with her grounding.

She saw an image of a black ball in her right kidney. We took her awareness there, and she imagined love flowing through her body and out her hands. She held the ball, and it began to shrink, but it wasn’t going away without sharing something first. We asked what the source of the feeling there was. She saw herself as a newborn baby crying and crying. She felt the pain of this baby feeling so scared and so unsafe – the baby knew she needed another human to survive, but no one was coming for her.

She held the baby and surrounded it with love. It began to calm but was still very anxious and scared. She saw balls of fear that had filled up inside this baby, and she began to release them by brushing them away with her hand. We then asked for assistance from Mother Earth to help ground the baby’s energy into its body. A very bright and strong beam of light connected the baby’s sacrum and tailbone into the center of the earth. The balls of fear began dropping down the cord of light. V watched as the energy came back up to Earth’s surface and grew into beautiful plants.

The baby’s entire nervous system was finally calm, and we asked her to join V and fully merge with her energy in the present moment. The baby simply entered through the belly and integrated back in. My client felt a huge blanket of peace and calm and love through and surrounding her entire body.

We asked for light to come in to fill any holes in her energy field. We asked that the process continue so that full integration may be reached and that she may bring more peace into her day and life. Then we invited her awareness fully back into her body and the present moment.

She came out of the session continuing to feel blanketed in peace and love.

She explained to me after the session that after she was born, her mother had severe hemorrhaging, and her father had to drive immediately to another place to get blood to save her mother’s life. My client’s first physical experiences were those of fear and abandonment as her newborn body lay alone for hours in the hospital crying for help. She felt she had finally healed this subconscious experience.

Suddenly, other childhood traumas made sense – why she used to get so worked up over something seemingly “insignificant.” She also was able to see the imminent death of her friend’s father as an event of life and not as a traumatic experience that brought up her own fears of dying from infancy. She could talk about it with peace in her heart. Her eyes were both calmer and brighter. She was finally relaxed and so filled with gratitude.
