You know how sometimes the universe intervenes for you? Well, I have had many experiences like this but the one most relevant for this moment is back in 2009. I was spending some time at the local library. The book didn’t literally fall off of the shelf but it might have. It was like a light illuminated a book called Energy Medicine by Donna Eden and said “pick me up, I will change your life.” I was interested in holistic medicine but energy medicine was completely new to me at the time. I read some of the book and was very interested, however I was overwhelmed with the discussion of energy (or muscle) testing as I didn’t have anyone to practice the testing she was describing. The book went back to the library after a three weeks. Fast forward a few months and I was in Powell’s bookstore in Portland. The Energy Medicine for Women book by Donna Eden jumped out at me there. I purchased that book and started to do the daily energy routine she recommends as a daily practice to get your energies running smoothly. I was intrigued enough to ask myself, “I wonder if there might be any local practitioners?” I got on the Innersource website and lo and behold, I discovered Kelmie Blake lived in Port Angeles. Remember how I asked at the beginning if you ever felt like the universe intervened for you? Well, this was another one of those instances for me. The year was 2010. I was nearly 2 years out of residency. I wasn’t very happy. The way I describe myself now is borderline depressed, fatigued, and on the verge of an autoimmune condition (no proof of this just the feeling that something was brewing). I started seeing Kelmie for sessions that summer and the first time I met her, she told me that in a few months there was a 5-day training in San Diego. I might consider registering. As they say, the rest is history. I saw Kelmie as a client for several years, became her student, and completed the Eden Energy Advanced Practitioner training in 2016. It changed my life. Perhaps it will change yours too.
Here’s a link to the book. It is a great read. https://edenenergymedicine.com/product/energy-medicine-10th-anniversary-edition-award-winning-book/
