Meet the Master

Cheryl Valdebenito

My personal story is one I don’t typically share. We all have them ~ stories, I mean.  Our experiences are all unique of course, and not comparable to others.  Yet by sharing, a story becomes an opportunity, a way of helping us to build relationship.  So let me tell you a few of my ah-ha moments ~ from the beginning when I started to understand there is something I needed to know beyond traditional medicine.  My health had for years made me feel like a train wreck; problems kept creeping in slowly so they were almost not noticeable. Until they were undeniable.  Shifting from a traditional perspective to an alternative view of possibilities — not easy, or simple, yet it made all the difference over time.

My life was stressful on many levels.  Fortunately, there was one fall afternoon when I met a gal at a networking event who was doing stress management scans to help job-seekers chill-out.  The queue was long, so I waited until the end of the day.  The biofeedback scan told me where the energy blocks in my field were (chakras, meridians, digestive track, etc.) and suggested areas that needed clearing.  The shocker was I hadn’t told the technician anything about my medical history, and yet the data that came from her scan was dead-on.  That was when I learned how stress undermines health.

Over the course of the next ten years it was as if God was placing people in my path to educate me about energy healing.  I bought the medical device in 2007, became certified and began my journey into a new realm of what I called the unknown.  Another quantum tool came to me in 2010, a cold laser made of 3-color LED light and quantum energy rolled up in one hand-held unit. It is programmed with amazing healing frequencies that have helped our family in acute situations as well as with chronic concerns.  Essential oils and the Amethyst BioMat became eye-openers, too;  both household staples since 2012, they short-stop those rough days when life’s curves balls are challenging.  On this path of discovery was a lesson: everything in life is about vibration and frequency.  Looking back, I was being led to tools that can be utilized for healing.

By then I had begun receiving intuitive messages about something called “Reiki”.  I’d heard the word, but had no idea what it was.  Again, more research before locating a Reiki Teacher that summer.  For six months prior to that training I had begun incorporating essential oils into my energy practice. Another surprise — the natural intelligence of the oils as the life-blood of the plants creates a fertile field of energy flow as people apply them topically and as they breathe in the scents; some of the pure oils were ingestible as well and made terrific teas, for example.  Coupling those two healing modalities — Reiki & Oils — well, nothing has been the same since!  This is my ongoing focus today as I meet and greet and teach.  Interested?  Let’s talk!”
