When it comes to burnout, I often share with my clients a pretty simple philosophy: take your life back by putting your highest self in charge and learn how to heal your injuries from the inside out.
Sounds easy enough, right? Yet, my personal experience of self-discovery and healing as a result of years of burnout didn’t exactly happen overnight.
For over 30 years, I enjoyed a successful career in the healthcare industry. I started as a nursing assistant and worked my way up through the emergency department, and eventually became a cardiovascular, critical care nurse. I later earned my MBA and moved into scientific lab equipment sales where I created an executive niche for working with all levels of the hospital to clinically implement laboratory tests to improve patient outcomes.
Beginning with my firsthand exposure to the day-to-day stresses of critical care nursing, it opened my eyes to the burnout epidemic that was and still is ravaging the entire healthcare system till today. After making the switch to the corporate side of the medical industry and rising up the ranks to leadership and management responsibilities, I thought I was creating the life of my dreams. But after decades of chasing unrealistic goals and meeting unrealistic expectations of others, the very dream life that I had built collapsed like a house of cards.
As a result, at the age of 44, I experienced personal, professional and spiritual burnout, and became my own critical care patient.
This near-death experience was life altering and inspired me to embark on a new career path as a burnout expert, energy healer, author, and speaker. Since then, I’ve been on a quest to discover, treat, and heal the underlying causes of burnout in others.
My journey has led me to seek various certifications in energy medicine, and to launch my practice as a Board-Certified Holistic Nurse and Certified Gemstone and Diamond Therapy Associate Practitioner specializing in burnout.
How Gemstone Therapy Has Helped Me
Gemstones have been used for hundreds of years to cure ailments, to increase prosperity, and most importantly, enhance inner peace. With gemstones, life energy is continually drawn into the center, and as a result, the life force becomes determined. This focus fuels the revolution of life force into gemstone power, encouraging restoration and the physical and mental health of the whole person.
The therapeutic benefits of gemstone energies run far and wide. Evidence suggests that different stones send out different vibrations which can resonate with the frequency of healthy cells in a specific part of the human body, and they may help bring back unhealthy cells to vibrating at the same level as healthy cells.
At the age of 44, I experienced personal, professional and spiritual burnout, and became my own critical care patient.
The healing powers of gemstones work with the energetic causes of our illnesses and stressors. Having personally survived a health crisis as a result of burnout – and having experienced the benefits of gemstone therapy – I now make it my goal to provide effective Gemstone and Diamond Therapy sessions that work directly with the energies of an individual’s physical body, and the thoughts, memories, and emotions to help them move forward on their journey to greater health.
My Gemstone Journey in 2018
Last January, as my new career began to evolve, I made a resolution to work on expanding my gemstone and diamond practice. The first custom gemandala my highest self built in self-therapy featured one leopard skin jasper as the center gem surrounded by eight mothers of pearls. While it was a simple, geometric design, it was quite powerful.
Gemandalas are essentially gemstone mandalas that are configured and designed into specific patterns that can trigger a precise healing benefit. These patterns are bound by the principles of Gemstone Therapy, Sacred Geometry, and Numerology in order to achieve the desired healing benefit from each and every carefully aligned pattern.
The central gemstone of leopard skin jasper indicates that something else is required in a person’s journey to achieve better health – it also helps draw it in. It also indicates deficiencies at the molecular level that help sustain metabolic processes and draws that resource in, as well. This particular gemstone also suggests a lack of coordination among the many dial-like, interdependent processes that need to be well synchronized for good health. Basically, I was out of synch on all levels.
Shortly after I began working with my custom gemandala, I began to discover new resources that supplied exactly what I needed to move forward with confidence, fire, and energy. Within four weeks, I had segued from corporate America to launching my energy medicine practice full-time.
In May 2018, my custom gemandala changed significantly. It now had a central gemstone surrounded by three Indigo, then surrounded by seven carnelians. The three Indigo – shaped in a triangle – indicated that I was coming upon a significant change in my life and my intuition would lead me there. The seven carnelians provided the insight that would support me by making a significant transition in my life related to my relationship with myself. In two months time, my book was finished, I had made four media appearances and was experiencing healthy changes in my personal relationships.
Admittedly, for many years prior, I had been allowing myself to be pushed around by others and had difficulty standing up for myself to follow my inner guidance.
However, over the course of those next few months – and as a result of utilizing gemstone therapies – I experienced a significant shift in my life. I’m now enjoying the freedom of self-confidence, self-direction and the joy that comes with having this independence.
My Wish for You in 2019
Burnout, anxiety, depression and ongoing pain are unfortunate elements of the human experience. And while advances in Western medicine continue at a rapid pace, they are often limited to treating solely the physical being.
To truly heal, we must work with the energetic causes of what’s agitating us from deep within. We must address these issues by tuning in to the thoughts, memories, and emotions behind what is causing our physical symptoms.
If you suffer from anxiety, stress, depression, or any other illness, and are interested in exploring something that could really change your life in 2019, gemstone and diamond therapy may help.
