It all started when...
I was born with a seizure condition, so I know what its like to live life with a chronic illness, managing symptoms and flare ups while trying to live a ‘normal’ life. I know what its like to feel frustrated, lonely, scared and hopeless because of chronic illness. Having faced the often overwhelming consequences of being chronically ill, I know what it takes to try to stay positive in the face of pain and illness, and continue to move forward in real healing.
In 1991, I had a bad running accident, which left me with a severe head injury and chronic pain. My seizures turned from an occasional annoyance to an uncontrollable and debilitating force. This, coupled with the pain condition that arose from the accident left me totally disabled. I was only 24 at the time, had a BA degree in psychology and lots of positive thinking at my disposal as I launched into a recovery plan. I rose up in my strongest, warrior attitude ready to battle for my health.
I tried everything: The best of traditional, holistic medicine and the best of modern, AMA medicine. Everything. And while some things helped, some of the time, the main issues persisted, and my body and my life got worse over time. The pain condition was so intense and unendurable at one point, I had to take morphine to endure. After 10 years of struggle with--and battling against--my illness, I found myself at one of the top neurologist at Cedars Sinai. He took a look at a picture of my brain, wrote me a prescription for pain meds and told me there was nothing else he could do. He said I’d never get out of chronic pain. I’d have to learn to make the best of it. I still remember the shock and hopelessness I felt as he reached out his hand and wished me “Good luck.”
Fortunately, my mother was with me at that visit. As we walked down the cold, sterile hall, away from his office, my body started to tremble with an overwhelming sense of futility, and I began to weep. My mother took hold of my hand and pressed it firmly. She wiped the tears from my cheeks and said,
“Healing is always possible, Julien.” There were tears in her eyes too. “This is not the end,” she continued. “This is just the beginning. We will never give up!”
This was the moment my true healing began. My mother helped me stop battling my body and my illness and turned me instead to the path of Sacred Healing, which is a pilgrimage onto the powerful path of energy medicine. It is a powerful and compassionate approach to getting well and staying well. I began studying and working with Shamans, medicine women, and spiritual healers from different traditions, learning how to heal myself as I learned how to heal others.
Despite doctor’s prognosis, I healed myself from 12 years of chronic pain, got off all seizure medications and got my seizure condition under control.
Now, I offer private healing sessions, group healing, and online programs and audios to help you reclaim control of your life and heal. Mentored by Grand Master Healer Danadoost, founder of Shafaw Healing, I work in the powerful tradition of Sacred Healing. Drawing from my own journey, healing from seizures, chronic pain and Lyme, I bring deep compassion, and sacred healing wisdom to all of my offerings.
