This is a picture of me with Donna Eden from maybe 8 years ago. Donna is one of the pioneers and leading voices in the realm of energy medicine, and I was fortunate enough to graduate from her three-year certification program, which led to my own practice as well as teaching classes and leading study groups in my surrounding communities. She is nearing eighty years old now and has been sharing her methods for decades.
Before being introduced to Eden Energy Medicine (EEM), I had been working with Reiki energy. Donna’s program, however, opened up a whole new world to me because it was so specific. The wonderful thing about Reiki is that the energy can go to where it is needed without me directing it or without me really having to know much about the body. It’s a different story with EEM.
In studying EEM I learned about major energy systems and how I could work with them to create a better balance in the body. I learned about their locations and pathways, about investigating and testing, about exercises and techniques. I learned much more about the body too. A great thing about it was that Reiki could compliment my energy sessions since I was already attuned to it. An added bonus.
Though I no longer have my practice, I still use some facet of EEM daily, and I also suggest things for friends to try if they are feeling out of sorts. After twelve years it’s become ingrained. I even tap into aspects of it unconsciously as when I thump my thymus if I need to get a big breath out or when I do a Crown Pull if I have a headache. I am forever grateful for it has become part of my DNA – mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually.
