How We Got Started with Energy Healing....
....and created our own energy healing website
I'm Tanja and this is Patrick. We live in beautiful sunny Florida, just minutes from the beach, and we like to
play with crystals.
Technically the site is 100% Patrick, but I like to chime in at times as well (like on this page). Our little ol' site started
in December 2007. Since then our visitors have helped it grow from those first baby steps.
We've now got more than 400 pages on the site, and around 60,000 page views every month. (Thanks to all of our visitors!)
The Beginning of our Journey
"The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams."
- Oprah Winfrey
We both started our spiritual paths at early ages. I (Tanja) wasn't a typical child. I started a meditation practice at
seven years old through the encouragement of my spiritually focused parents (thanks Mom and Dad!).
I got my first crystal (which I still
have and treasure) at the age of eleven. By my early teen years I was absorbing the works of Alan Watts, Ram Dass, Carl Jung, Rumi,
Nikos Kazantzakis and many other spiritually focused authors.
Patrick, far away in West Virginia at the time, was also exploring
his spiritual path at an early age. Part Shawnee and Part Delaware, he was introduced to the Native American ways
by his father.
His upbringing was focused on learning to respect and work in alignment with nature and it's energies
according to the age old traditions of his tribal roots. His great-grandmother, a respected herbalist and psychic, passed her lessons
down, and Patrick learned the arts of herbalism through that line.
We started doing energy work, crystal work, meditation, and spiritual searching about seventeen years ago. Then in 1997 when we first began working with the energies of Reiki we knew our lives would never be the same. From the first level Reiki attunement to the third we could feel our healing energy increasing exponentially. Then in 2003 we were introduced to the wonder of crystal singing bowls.
From that moment on, a new life path was open for us. We'd been working with the energies of crystals for many years years at that point, branching out to include singing bowls made of crystal was a natural progression.
Many years later fifteen crystal singing bowls graced our life. Other sound practices entered our lives as well.
We still continue with our other crystal, meditation, chakra, and healing energy practices, but now with the added intensity of sound.
For quite a few years now we have done energy healing work, new age classes, crystal singing bowl concerts, reiki attunements, and healing workshops. Two years ago we achieved our goal of putting Patrick's crystal singing bowl music on CD. The project took many years of planning, and the efforts paid off with a magical, healing CD that has been well received. With the CD project completed, we did some introspection on the next phase of our energy healing work. We wanted to reach out to more people interested in healing energies, more than could fit in one classroom at a time. After much consideration, we decided to create a completely free, informational website devoted to the subject of energy healing that would be available worldwide.
The response has been tremendous, with visitors from across the world.
Every week we get comments and questions from those as hungry as us for down-to-earth energy healing explanations.
We feel blessed to be able to offer this information for free in service to others, and we have gratitude and joy for
each one of our visitors.
We live on the coast of Florida with our rescue "kids" Sunny the Sunshine Dog and Sam the Cat.
Every day we find an excuse to head to the beach, soaking up the healing energies of the blessed ocean and sun.
We like to travel to spiritual places and events. We've been lucky to experience the old growth forest of Joyce Kilmer in
North Carolina, the vortexes of Sedona, and a Sihk retreat in New Mexico amongst other trips.
We still haven't made it to Stone Henge, but you better believe it's on the verge of happening!!! Recently, thanks to our
website profits, we took a trip that included a visit to the sacred site known as Serpent Mound in Southern Ohio. A
had been their a week before, performing a healing ceremony using crystal skulls. The energy of the place was incredible.
While we weren't able to walk on the mound (it is restricted to do so) we placed a serpentine crystal upon the crown of
the serpents head at the mound and then held it to our third eye.
The experience was powerful and beyond words.
We believe in the power of good and love on this planet. Every week we donate
free energy healing to all of our website visitors, and
regularly offer charity healings to people who live in our area. Patrick has been to Hospice and nursing homes offering his energy
healing without a charge, and we both send out positive energies to the planet and everything upon it on a daily basis.
We hope you enjoy your visit to our site,
and please make sure to bookmark it and visit again. We are constantly adding new information and techniques, so there
is always something new to see. If you have
any comments or
would like to submit a healing story of your own, share it! We love hearing from our visitors!
