“I shall not commit the fashionable mistake of declaring everything I cannot explain as a fraud”. ~ Carl Jung
For many unfamiliar with or skeptical of non-medical healing, for that addressing physical issues or the more amorphous, less-definable ‘spiritual’ , there is confusion about the role that faith or belief have in the matter.  The kind of healing I do has, over the course of centuries (and when not leading to the burning at the stake and such), been associated with religious belief or faith in particular outcome–thus ‘faith healing’.  In fact, faith & belief have often been regarded as a prerequisite for healing.   Kathryn Kuhlman, Benny Hinn (not to be confused with Benny Hill), Oral Roberts have been known for their charismatic exhortations of healing for those who believed in and loved Jesus.  John of God, Fr. McAlear and more of Protestant, tribal, Catholic, Muslim, Hindu, and other religious persuasions have brought relief to thousands of people around the globe while exhorting the need to believe:  belief in “Christ as Your Savior”, belief that the herbs or ancestors will do their job, belief in one God or many, that the one God or many Gods hold you in favor, belief in Christ’s healing power, and more.
Skeptics, generally speaking, hold the belief that the non-medical healing isn’t real because there isn’t enough proof.
Well, here’s the kicker:  what I do doesn’t require belief–in anything, really.  Except, maybe that you believe you’d rather spend time with me rather than, say, be getting a root canal.     You just need to be willing to show up in all your inglorious fabulousness and receive.  That’s it.
Here’s why:  this magic, this thing that I am and bring is a direct expression of the  highest expression of love there is.
And love needs no condition, no prerequisite, no reason to exist, to be shared, to heal and permanently connect people with a sense of worthiness, wholeness, and health.
As I travel the country for at least the first half of the year, there will also be no requirement of money.  I will be working solely from donations and in-kind services from those who are willing to support this most excellent adventure.
