How I Got Started With Energy Healing
I was asked just the other day, once again, how it was that I got started down the path of energy healing, so I thought I’d take the time and share my story with you here.
Although I’ve been interested in energy healing my whole life, ever since I was 6 years old, I had never learned how to actually do it before 1987.
It all started with the birth of my daughter Danika. She was newborn and had developed a cystic-hygroma (which is a fluid-filled cyst), on the back of her neck that was growing quite rapidly. It doubled in size every couple of months, and began interfering with the nerves in the back of her neck. The pressure from the size of the cyst was beginning to cause problems with swallowing and ear aches too.
The ear, nose, throat specialist that we took her to said that at the rate it was growing she may need to have surgery before she was a year old. He had been trying to delay the operation because of the increased probability of complications with anesthesia on children less than 1-year-old, but the pressure was growing too rapidly. This doctor told me there was nothing I could do to help her except surgery, and that even with the operation, because of the way it was intertwined with her nerves, he would not be able to get all of it. He said that it would grow back and that we were going to be looking at several surgeries for this condition over her lifetime. I was beside myself with worry over this as I didn’t want my baby to have to have an operation.
Well, my mom had me call a very gifted lady she knew who was an energy healer. During the course of our conversation I had asked her if she would please work with Danika – to which she replied, No, she wouldn’t. She said that I was a natural born healer with an open channel for healing energies and I just needed to discover how to use this gift. Well, I didn’t know the first thing about energy healing at that point in time. But, thankfully, with her guidance I quickly learned to use this skill.
I spent the next two weeks beaming healing energy into the back of Danika’s neck towards her cyst when she was sleeping – either while she was napping during the day or at night when I’d put her to bed. Back then, every time I started to send healing energy my hands would prickle like crazy – all pins and needles like, not painful, just really weird – with all kinds of static-electricity, itchy-like feelings. The funny thing was, while Danika was sleeping, she’d reach up to the area of her neck where I was sending energy and scratch there – she had been feeling something happening even while she slept.
Two weeks later at our scheduled doctor’s appointment – the appointment where he was going to set the date for her operation - the doctor was amazed when he saw Danika’s neck. There was no sign of any cyst what-so-ever. He said he’d never seen anything like that – that there had never been a known situation where this condition had ever disappeared on its own. And, that a cyst that had been doubling and doubling in size at every appointment for the past 6 months was now completely gone.
I told him how I had been beaming healing energy towards her cyst and had been doing this for two weeks, a couple of times a day. Well, the doctor got angry – I mean red-in-the-face-angry – and said in no uncertain terms, that I was NEVER to repeat that story ever again! He said these things don’t go away on their own, and walked out of his office. We ended up leaving thereafter, and never went back. And, the cystic-hygroma never showed up again. Danika (at this time) is now 32 years old.
Now, if that was the only thing energy healing had ever done for us – then it was worth it! Though, I’ve used energy healing over and over again, in many, many ways, and for that I am forever grateful – it’s a gift Danika awoke within me.
I used to feel much more in my hands at the beginning of my healing career as a way of my body and spirit confirming for me that something really was happening – though these days I no longer feel the electrical prickly feeling in the palms of my hands – sometimes just a mild warmth.
I’ve learned a lot since those early days and my skills have grown with use and practice. And, that is part of what inspires me to share energy healing with individuals who have a shared interest.
I was first attuned to the Cosmic Healing Energy system by two Australian Medicine women in 1988. It is very similar and harmonious to Reiki. While it feels slightly different than Reiki it works in the same manner – even the levels of attunement are the exact same - though this energy frequency had been around longer and originated in Australia.
I became a Reiki Master a few short years later, trained in the formal Usui tradition back when becoming a Reiki Master cost $10,000 for the training, and took many months accomplish. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy." So, Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."
My explorations into energy healing led me to Huna teachings (Hawaiian), shamanic training and apprenticeships (Native American, Australian, and even from the South American Andes), Mahikari (originating in Japan), and a variety of ancient healing practices from all over the world. This eventually lead me to offering, quite literally, one of the world’s most advanced energy attunements (called the Infinite Energy Frequencies), which offers over 74 unique energy healing frequencies and significantly increases a person’s energy healing capabilities and opens their channels of healing capacity greater than before.
Another story I could share with you here is about my son Steven. He had a bike accident where he had torn all four of the rotator cuff ligaments in his shoulder and even fractured his scapula – which is hard to do because it is one of the strongest, dense bones in the body. When the paramedics called me to meet them at the hospital emergency room, Steven was in a wheel chair waiting to be seen next. He was attempting to hold his arm in place with his good arm, though it was hanging at the shoulder an inch lower and he couldn’t move it at all – since all the ligaments were completely torn.
I started sending him healing energy while in the Emergency Room. When the doctor saw Steven he told him it would take 6-8 weeks before he could even start to move his arm, or even begin physical therapy, because the ligaments needed time to connect and heal. And, then it would take another 6 weeks before he’d regain full use of his arm.
I sent Steven healing energy every day and by the 4th week he was moving it. By the end of the 4th week I called to make a physical therapy appointment and they refused at first telling me he needed more time before he’d be able to move his arm. I told them he was already moving it and that we heal fast in our family. I then stated that if we were too early, the worst that could happen is that we have to come back, but he wanted to begin physical therapy.
The receptionist made the appointment while telling us it was a waste of everyone’s time. We got in the next day. They examined him and had him do the usual range-of-motion tests. They then said they were very impressed and gave him some exercises, but said he had such good strength and movement that he did not need to come back for the 6-8 weeks of therapy.
Hands-on energy healing is thousands of years old and is considered to be a pillar in the self-care health-care field. I consider it to be 1 out of the 4 of my recommended 4-Pillars of self-empowerment, because healing life-force energy helps restore, rejuvenate, and revitalize a person when their body has been deleted due to stress, injury, illness, or medical conditions. It helps create an optimal environment that enables the body’s own innate tendency for healing to occur. And, the good news is, science is now able to confirm and support its significance.
“In every culture and in every medical tradition before ours, healing was accomplished by moving energy.” ~ Albert Szent-Gyorgyi Nobel Laureate in Medicine (1937)

In Praise of the Infinite Energy Frequencies Attunement & Energy Healing Course
“I did not exactly know what the course would hold and was most pleasantly surprised by the chance to get attuned to 74 different energy frequencies. I remember the energetic shift I had felt years ago when I was attuned to the energy of Reiki. I could not imagine how powerful it would be to be attuned to 74 energies. Wow! I felt an amazing elevation of energy awareness, which I thoroughly enjoy. I am an Energy Healer, and I now use the Infinite Energy Frequencies often during treatments with my clients but also for myself. This has so beautifully brought the concept of the work I do together and brought it to a whole different level.” ~ Claudia Tressel
“Years ago, Dhebi helped me through an illness, and I am so very grateful to her and her work. I was excited to take this course, and it did not disappoint in the least. My energy and self-awareness of the energy around me has increased. I work with patients that have so much trauma in their lives, and I have already started helping others with the learnings. The information is fascinating as well as effective. Dhebi has a true gift. I am in awe of this information and how it helps fine tune your energy awareness. I can’t wait for more classes. Thank you so much!” ~ Tami Tanninen
“I am so glad I attended the Energy Frequencies Attunement, not only because I waited for it to finally be offered, but also because I knew it would change my own frequency level. The classes certainly exceeded my expectations by far! The process of attunement was a profound and touching experience that I could not have expected in the way it happened. That part alone made me feel and realize with every cell of my body that we are connected, and I would not want to have missed it! What we learned in the following classes was very helpful for my daily life. The 74 frequencies brighten up everything! Wow, wow, wow, love, love, love it!!!” ~ Sandra Kaya
