Many people are curious about how I became a shamanic healer given that I had a background in consulting in corporate pensions! I guess the short answer is that the path found me…eventually, after over two decades of searching for it. In 2004 I received a vision while visiting Machu Picchu in Peru in which I was instructed to follow the path of the shaman – so I gave up my job at the bank and that’s exactly what I did. I later found out that the vision I received was the traditional way for a shaman to be called to the path. I completed Dr Alberto Villoldo’s Healing the Light Body School training with The Four Winds Society and I also undertook training and a further Peru trip visiting the Amazon, the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and the holy mountain Ausangate with Jose Luis Herrera of Rainbow Jaguar. I completed medicine wheel and Inner Child training with Carla Fox of FarWalker Destiny and many others including the indigenous shaman and Ayahuascero’s of the Amazon, Lake Titicaca and the mountains of the High Andes (The Q’ero). In order to help clients even further I went to California and studied ThetaHealing and in the UK I trained in Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Quantum Touch and Past Life Regression with Roger Woolger. I also attended retreats with Sufi Sheikh Burhannudin (Spain) and Mother Meera (Germany).
As I child I was interested in spiritual matters and in trying to find the truth. In my twenties I studied Transcendental Meditation (TM) for eight years and through developing a regular practice I discovered I had hands-on healing abilities. So I studied three different lineages of Reiki, and became a Reiki Master. However, I felt that hands on healing only provided surface relief which lasted a few days – and I wanted to find a healing modality that reached down to the very root of a person’s problem. I likened most healing modalities to that of simply ripping the leaves off a dandelion that grows in the middle of your lawn – only to find it has grown back a week later. Instead, I wanted to find a healing method that not only identified the root of the problem, but also completely removed the issue, and returned the person to wholeness. Therefore, I felt blessed to finally receive the vision at Machu Picchu and find the shamanic path after so many years of searching.
Since then I have worked full time as an ‘Altomesayok’ – a shamanic healer working with the highest levels of spirit. I’ve helped people worldwide go on their healing journeys and heal the things either in their past or current reality which are holding them back from living fulfilled and happy lives so they can move on and create a life of their dreams. My clients range from 8 months old to 90 years old and are from all races, religions and backgrounds, from Hollywood ‘A listers’ to schoolchildren. My book, ‘A Healer of Souls’ was published in 2012 and is intended to provide a helping hand on the journey through life. It details stories from my life and client case studies as well as providing guidance to help you navigate the many pitfalls life can throw at us, hopefully enabling you to see your life experience from a different perspective so you can move forward and create a new reality for yourself. I also hold an MBA from Nottingham Trent University and am an Alumni Fellow of Nottingham Business School so I can also use my knowledge and skills to create better businesses and most importantly, authentic business leaders.
