My Past 5 Years…


5 years ago, I was starting to hit some strides in life.  I had just celebrated my third year in business, I had clients in my private practice, was becoming a CCT Teacher (more on that below), and was a prominent member in the NW Ohio community.  5 years ago last month, however, my life took an unexpected turn, on a day when I least expected it.



On Valentine’s Day, 2014, a man that I had been deeply in love with for 10 years suddenly passed away.



It rocked my world, and sent me tumbling into a long bout of grief and devastation.  I was lost.  Didn’t know which way was up.  I was confused and scared and angry and sad.  I couldn’t connect.  If I wasn’t feeling a multitude of emotions, I was completely numb.  I cried myself to sleep every night, wishing I would have a dream where I could connect with him.  I couldn’t focus, I didn’t want to eat, and I had to sleep with the TV on all night so I could somehow keep a connection with the outside world and not feel completely alone.  It was horrible.



For most people who hold ‘regular’ jobs, working after a loss like this can be therapeutic.  You can put your attention on your work, and get out of your head and focus on something else for a while.  In the past, jobs I had allowed me to do this… I worked at a music store, a Subway restaurant, and a flower shop.  If life was terrible, I would dive into that work and forget my troubles for a while, which helped me have better a perspective and outlook on things.



But I couldn’t do that with this business.



What I do at Ray of Life Healing is hold an energetic container for others to shift their energy and transform into better and better versions of themselves.



And in the years following my 10-year partner’s death, I simply couldn’t do that very much.  For short bits of time, yes.  On occasion, sure.  But not in the way in which is required for long term growth and health for many people who are at varying stages of their own personal evolution.



I am very thankful to the people who have allowed me to help them over the last 5 years, and especially to those who have helped me.  Because despite my inability to truly hold a strong container for that transformation for any length of time, some miraculous things have happened regardless…


  • I have become a CCT Master Teacher 
  • I have been able to maintain a small clientele and keep my business running 
  • I have taught a handful of classes every year 
  • I have successfully managed a guest dude ranch in Montana for the last several years
  • I have helped a friend’s acupuncture clinic achieve higher and higher success
  • I helped a friend on TV movie and commercial production sets
  • I have traveled and connected with people whom I’m grateful to call friends
  • And I have healed and transformed into a much greater version of myself, who is ready to help others empower and enrich their lives in ways they never dreamed possible.



The miraculous things don’t stop with me, either.  The people in my life whom I’ve had the opportunity to help transform themselves have all achieved great things as well.  Too many to list.



I want to make this list grow.



And I want to invite YOU to have a miraculous story too.
