I believe that no one truly knows in advance what their personal mission is.
Life places challenges before us and the way we meet them, shapes our path.
The next story will attest to that.
For years I was running around with a swollen and painful right knee.
Visited many doctors & health practitioners...
Originally, they dismissed me with "you are walking too much...."
(I was then young and a hiking guide in the Sinai Desert).
Later they said it was simply wear & tear.
I couldn't understand why only in one leg.
Meanwhile I didn't stop. I continued to travel the world with a backpack.
I continued to dance.
But it also continued to worsen and became more aggravated.
Then I was told that I had a cyst in the back part of my knee but it is nothing to worry about.
I experimented with several alternative therapies from Chinese Medicine, Tibetan Medicine, Shiatsu, magnets, frequency treatments, herbs, Polarity Therapy, etc.
I even saw a Philippine psychic healer, a Russian intuitive healer who once worked for the K.G.B., had a private session with the Dalai Lama's personal physician and more.
I painted my knee, I communicated with it, I wrote with the non-dominant hand but nothing helped.
I basically exhausted every possible way yet, no conclusive diagnosis was offered.
Until that one morning when I woke up with a knee the size of a watermelon, unable to move. It was the end of 2001.
I was rushed to the hospital where the doctor tried to drain the fluid with a huge needle. It was not pleasant.
A few days later, another doctor looked at the X-rays and said: "holy cow! I have never seen a knee joint so destroyed at such an early age. How did you reach such a state of neglect?"
I brought him my medical files and he couldn't believe his eyes.
I was immediately sent for an MRI and the results indicated a suspicion for a very rare tumor inside the synovium. From the moment I received the diagnosis, I began to read whatever I could find on the internet and I knew it was true. I was textbook.
Within a week I was already in the operation room.
The biopsy returned a positive result but I was left with incredible pain.
The doctor informed me that the operation was unsuccessful and that the tumor has spread along the tendons and blood vessels and could not be removed.
He recommended radiation therapy for 30 days.
Conventional vs Alternative Medicine
The radiologists were uninformed yet threatened me that unless I do what they say, I may lose the limb. Intuitively I felt that if I did what they said, I will leave on a wheelchair.
How many patients with this kind of a tumor have they treated, I asked.
Any guess? One(1). Hmmmmm.....
I returned home and did what I always do when I feel that I am at a dead-end.
I speak to the Creator directly, from my heart.
I outline my conflict, my challenge ,my problem
And I ask for guidance. This is roughly what I said:
Please let me know what to do that is in alignment with my highest good.
If it is best for me to do what the doctors are saying, I am asking for a clear sign in a language I can understand and may it come within one week. If there is another option, I will be so happy and please provide a clear sign in a language which I can understand, also within a week. Thank you in advance, and I release.
One of my teachers would often say: Pray and move your feet!
Meaning pray and do something.
I moved my feet just from the living room sofa to my work desk in the kitchen thinking to myself that until the Creator answers me, I might as well continue to search for answers myself...♥♥♥
To this day, I remember how I stumbled upon Vianna's website, creator of the Theta Healing method. At that time (which was the beginning of Theta Healing), it was a pretty funny site with fairies flying in between the lines... I devoured every word of Vianna's story... how she discovered the cancer in her leg, how the doctors told her that her leg must be amputated if she wished to stay alive and how she experienced an amazing and spontaneous healing which led to the development of the Theta Healing Method. Immediately I felt eager to meet her but my resources at that time were sparse and a flight to Idaho with days off work were not on the agenda.
Much to my ignorance, I still didn't get it that the Creator was already answering my prayer and therefor I could hardly believe it when I saw, still on the same site, that Vianna was teaching seminars and that the next one will be around the corner from my house in Santa Monica, CA that same weekend. This was the only time in that entire year that Vianna came to Southern California to teach.
I registered immediately.
A Frequency of Healing - An Answered Prayer
The moment Vianna entered the room, I felt a soul connection that cannot be explained in words. During the break, I approached her and told her why I came.
"Do you want me to clean your knee"? she held my hand and asked.
Of course. Vianna blinked her eyes and told me what she saw.
At the end of that seminar, I no longer needed my walking stick.
I felt uplifted, hopeful, grateful and more happy than I have a felt in a very long time.
The following morning I had an appointment with a Naturopath who used Live Blood Analysis for diagnosis. For a while now, my blood image looked bad and he would give me supplements to try and balance it back to normal. But that morning, he looked at the screen and then looked at me and asked: "What have you done?"
The tone of his voice was alarming.
But then he turned the screen toward me and what I saw was an optimal blood image... best image one can hope to have.
Unfortunately he didn't think his treatment could do it.... facilitate such a drastic improvement!
But for me, a university graduate of Natural Sciences who loves evidence, this was a proof that something happened in this seminar that was beyond techniques; something took place that influenced my body, my blood... This was fascinating, exhilarating, encouraging and stimulating.
Needless to say, I didn't return to the doctors as the Creator indeed answered my prayer with clear signs in a language I could understand and within one week, that they didn't have anything to offer me.
A month later, I had the same blood test done and it seemed to already regressed from that optimal state observed the morning after the seminar. Meaning, something happened that I could not maintain. This was even more intriguing.
There were no other courses in Theta Healing at the time so I repeated the Basic Course many times and joined Vianna as an assistant. I started to apply the Theta Healing tools in my sessions and the results were amazing. I felt that I have finally found a method that not only fit me as a therapist but also upgraded everything I have learned and studied before.
I truly found my channel.
In 2003, I have already become a certified instructor and after Intuitive Anatomy, my phone started to ring without any marketing efforts.
I felt that I was finally HOME.
Theta Healing in Israel
During one of the teacher trainings, Vianna approached me and with teary eyes told me that I was going to bring Theta Healing to Israel and that it was going to help change the consciousness of my people. I was moved but also afraid. I felt that it was too much to hold.
Since then I have learned that when the Divine chooses us for a role and we say "yes", we don't have to know how it will happen. We just have to show up and be present and all the needed resources appear in perfect order. And so it was.
In May of 2005 the first Theta Healing course opened in Kibbutz Maanit with 22 courageous participants and the rest as they say, is history.
