Opening: a life story

It seems a lifetime ago now, when I started my journey inward, to find my truth.

I grew up with little or no awareness of the truth. I didn’t sense anything other than the physical world, at least not that I remember. I grew up in the US, mostly on the central California coast, with university on the east coast, in upstate New York.

After university, where I learned the basics of Japanese language and culture, I decided to move to Japan. I worked in IT and joined a mountaineering club, so spent many a weekend in the Japanense Alps, climbing snowy mountains. The club invited me to join an expedition to K2, and this proved an amazing experience. The mountain was magnificent, but just as amazing was the journey there and back, through the northern regions of Pakistan, where the people impressed me with their faith, particularly their acceptance of what is, “as God wills.” Our expedition cook had died of altitude sickness, but visiting his family after our descent, they showed no ill will. Though grieving, and indeed the children having lost their father, his family also accepted his death. Having grown up faithless, this had a deeply resounding impact.

Returning to Japan, I didn’t climb any more mountains, but met my wife... a much more difficult challenge! She was (and is) my perfect opposite, my mirror, and try as I could to run away, I now needed to face myself.

My first encounter with homoeopathy was when trying to find an alternative to steroid creams for treating my eczema. Although homoeopathy didn’t cure the eczema, I did see some miracle cures, one a case of Lyme Disease, melted away in a day, and another of acute gastroenteritis and exhaustion, gone in a few minutes. Coming from a western scientific mindset, where anything outside the box was dubious at best, the box crumbled, and anything was possible.

Spirits took me quite a while longer to accept, as I couldn’t see or feel them. My daughter and wife could, but this was still beyond my perception, not yet part of my reality.

It was only after we moved to the UK that I opened to the non-material. We moved around the world so I could study homoeopathy. I was tired of technical IT work, and wanted to invest my energy in something with more meaning. I thought I could help others with homoeopathy, and also saw homoeopathy as a bridge to an existence more in tune with spirit, where I saw myself lacking. In the UK, I found a homoeopathy school where the course work offered exactly what I was interested in, a connection to spirit through homoeopathy. In the shamanic homoeopathy seminars and group esoteric work, I tried sensing other planes of existence. I could confirm, through sharing others’ experience, that my sense of the non-material was real, and something I could trust. I soon had chances to put this sense to work.

Once my wife was particularly upset. I tried to tune into her energy, and I felt another energy as well, another being. Speaking to this entity in its plane, I could find why it died, and why it was tormented, and I found when I showed it the light, it ascended. Moments later, my wife asked me what I’d done, as the oppressive energy had gone; this was the first time I realised I could sense entities, and help them return to source.

Later I found I could also sense the resonance of remedies with individuals, as a way of prescribing directly, based on energy. This came first with my family, when remedies I’d selected for my children didn’t work at all, and, desperate to help, I tried sensing my children energetically, and looking for what remedy would work. It did! I was thrilled with the relative ease and effectiveness of this method, and used it with my case studies too.

Still, the sensing of spirits and the energies of remedies... is not exactly truth. Although I’d found a bridge between homoeopathy and esoteric forces, I didn’t really understand their meaning. This understanding, or at least pointers to that understanding, came from Yoshihide Uezu, a self-realised Japanese master. He teaches of the nature of truth, within each of us, and overarching all creation. I attended a seminar of his in Norway, and ended up helping with the translation, and later hosting a seminar in the UK. Although I still have much work remaining to reach full awareness of truth, I now at least understand my path.

I am deeply grateful to all those who have helped me on my way, most of all my wife and children. I also credit homoeopathy for breaking the box I built around myself, and now that I can sense its energies, realise how it (and all healing) is connected to source. I hope that by sharing this with you I can help us along our paths, to truth.
