The story you are about to read is how I came to be on the path I currently walk. Except for my husband Howard and myself, names have been changed to protect the privacy of others.
So many of you have asked me, how did I know that I was a healer, and some I have shared this story. It was a powerful turning point in my life and I have never been the same since.
I have chosen to share this with all of you in hope that it inspires you to know that there is always hope, Divine love and a higher power looking over us. All it takes is the faith of a mustard seed.
May everyone feel the beauty and true spirit of this Holiday Season within your hearts and towards one another. -Jenn Royster
The Turning Point
I remember the look on Howard’s face. My husband had fought back the tears as he approached. I’d nearly felt the urge to cry myself as he’d pleaded, “Would you see Danny and do energy work with him? The doctor just told him he has six months left.”
It was August 2006 and he had just come from a visit with this family friend we’d known for years. A simple no-nonsense kind of guy, leased a house from Howard’s father and bartered landscaping work to help pay his rent. Danny was known for growing prize-winning tomatoes. He didn’t like tomatoes himself; his joy came from growing and giving them to friends like Howard who had to have a tomato-and-mayonnaise sandwich on white bread at least once every summer.
Danny had just been diagnosed with stage-four cancer, with a tumor the size of a grapefruit in his right lung and a tumor in his right hip. The cancer had spread to his lymphatic system.The prognosis was grim with a two-percent chance of survival with treatment. The doctor had told Danny to get his affairs in order and they would begin treatment immediately.
This all came as a shock to me that I was asked to perform such a miraculous task. I didn’t feel worthy, or ready. I had known since I was a small child that there was something different about me. It didn’t make me feel like I was crazy until I tried to explain it to someone else.
For years, I kept it a secret for fear someone would laugh and not take me seriously. It wasn’t until 1999 that things started to shift for me. A yearning deep within my soul was crying out for me to make a change in my life.
For the next several years, I dug deep into the books of whatever I could find that would help me understand how to best use this ability. I found myself being led by a higher power within me instead of by my physical ego. I was sensitive to everything, and was going through a spiritual rebirth. There was no turning back now. I was entrenched in a spiritual training that I never knew existed.
Now, I was faced with the self awareness that my faith in God was lacking as I contemplated this task to help Danny. How could I not believe? With all the evidence from years gone by, there was still a part of me that was skeptical of the magnitude of the power of God from within.
But Howard did believe, and reminded me of a time he’d been troubled. He said, “How could you doubt this after the pain you released from me?
That was when I knew this was real, Jenn. You reached out to comfort me, the energy flowed, and the pain left my body in an instant.”
In that moment, I realized that I hadn’t been doing anything but allowing God’s energy to flow through me that day with Howard. This was the vital key that I had forgotten. Now, more that ever, my faith would be tested. I agreed to see Danny, but made no promises.
The day arrived and Howard brought Danny to the office. I had spent the morning preparing myself through prayer and meditation.
I escorted him to the session room and explained that I was going to be a vessel for God’s love and energy to flow to his body, and that it was very peaceful. I started with what is called Reiki, a Japanese style of energy healing where your hands are placed in a specific pattern, but it didn’t take long before my hands were guided differently.
As I placed my hands over the tumors, a heat generated that was intense like fire. I frequently shook my hands to cool them off. I continued for 90 minutes until all the heat was gone.
Danny and I looked at each other in amazement as I closed off the session. I recommended supplements that are often recommended to support the immune systems of cancer patients during treatment. I taught him how to use the power of his mind positively and suggested he read Why people don’t Heal and How they Can by Caroline Myss.
Howard met us outside puzzled by our appearance. We were both drenched from the heat that had been generated in the session. Our hair and clothes soaked like we just walked out of a sauna.
We all knew that something amazing had happened. Now it was a game of patience to wait and see what would unfold.
Two months later on a crisp cool morning in October, it was time for Danny to go for a complete body scan to see how far the cancer had spread.
Howard came to tell me the results personally. The report stated that there had been no evidence of cancer anywhere in his body.
The news brought me to my knees, and I apologized to God for my lack of faith in his power. I thought how amazing that God had healed this man of advanced cancer in two months and also used this situation to put me straight on my course.
The doctors were amazed and recorded Danny’s case as a miraculous recovery. To this day, he still grows prize-winning tomatoes and wholeheartedly contributes himself as a case study for cancer research at Duke University Medical College in North Carolina.
Looking back at this turning point in my life, I will never forget the opportunity that God laid before me when Danny walked into my office. It has changed my life forever, and strengthened my faith. This amazing power has been a great influence in where I am today. I am no longer concerned with what others think of me, and I continue to learn as I help others that are seeking this beautiful gift into their lives.
