You can transform your pain into power

If you’ve ever suffered from a traumatic event that changed the course of your life, a chronic health problem, or the wounds that traumatize the heart, then congratulations! YOU have an important mission and a powerful gift to share …

Meet the ‘Wounded Healer’

In 1977, an asteroid in our solar system was ‘discovered’ and brought to our collective attention. It’s called Chiron, named after the ancient Greek Master of Healing & Teaching.

His timely arrival into our awareness coincides exactly with the birth of Alternative & Energy Healing. Yep, it was right around this time that energy healing powers stopped being reserved for spiritual masters, and started moving through ‘ordinary’ Joes & Janes – folks like you and me.

How and why the heavenly bodies end up being named according to the exact energies they represent within our human psyches is a mystery that maybe even astrologers can’t answer. But as an astrologer, I can tell you that these archetypal energies are consistent in every single chart I’ve ever read.

It’s all about YOU

But this post isn’t about astrology, this is about YOU. It’s about your power to Heal, Whole and Serve others, thanks to the pain-teacher that was ‘gifted’ uniquely to you …

Your Pain is your Power

Or put another way: “Your ‘mess’ is your Message.”

If you’re here, I know it’s for 1 of 3 reasons (and probably all of them!)

1. You are seeking solutions to a chronic health problem

2. You are awakening and now seeking your Soul Purpose Path

3. You are a Healer, Teacher, Mentor or Spirit-Centered service provider

In any case, (or all of them), you came to be here on Mother Earth at this exact moment in time for a very specific reason. And that reason is DIRECTLY connected with, yep … your ‘wound’.

Shhh … Keep that mess of yours a Secret, for goodness sake!

So many of us who have awakened to our true, eternal nature, at first feel we must hide our mess. After all, if we are here to lift and help and heal others – we certainly can’t show them how vulnerable, weak and screwed-up we are, right?


You see, your unique set of life challenges put YOU in the Perfect and Powerful Position to help others with those very challenges. It is your passage through the pain, the mess, the confusion and the fear that makes you the ideal Guide, Mentor, Healer & Helper for others walking the same path right behind you.

Put Yourself in ‘Your’ Shoes

What I mean to say is, if you want help with a spiritual, emotional or physical problem, do you really want to go to someone whose never suffered? Would you trust ‘Little Miss/Mister Perfect’ to understand how to serve you?

(and if you’re not sure what I mean, think about how incompetent most political leaders and representatives are, and how incomplete most of their policies end up being, because they’re clueless about things like poverty, lack of health care for their own families, or what it means to work the butts off just to get by …)

Healing energy of any kind comes from the heart of compassion. And compassion comes from understanding – from the “I know what it is to suffer” experience.

The World Needs YOU. Umm … Now

This is why you chose to come here and struggle with your ‘pain’, your mess, your unique set of P.I.A. challenges. Not because of ‘bad karma’ or because god is punishing you, but because you chose to cultivate compassion-in-the-name-of-service in that particular way.

 Your Story – Your Power

Sharing your story is a powerful way to get clarity about your Soul Purpose. It’s also a priceless gift you can give to those looking for understanding and compassion. When you share your own vulnerability, you allow that ‘wound’ – that mess  to actually BE the catalyst for change your Soul intended it to be.

So with this in mind, I would love to hear your story. What is the ‘mess’ you came here to heal? And what is the service you are passionate to offer others? Please share the wisdom uniquely yours with us in the comments below.

And thank you for your courage to Heal, Whole & Serve!
Many blessings,

    Hi Dawn
    Do you have an address that I can write you privately. You are the good sort of entrepreneur, ( we all gota eat, and you have very special skills. What I meant was being new to this sort of learning via the net, I have come into contact with BIG business’ that keep trying to push me into joining courses, by sending endless advertising.
    It is the 31st of December and I wish you a wonderful New Year. The left side of my body is agony, partly due to a fall (putting off knee replacement) and partly due to a DV incident from my boyfriend/ carer, i am in a catch 22 situation. I have the strength to handle it I feel, but accumulating health issues say some thing different!! I love life, my half acre of nature is heaven but ,yes I am dependant on help around the house and with driving. The health issues have come from living with a sad person, he gets no joy from the sunrise, gods art for us all !

      Hi Phoebe, my apologies for responding so late to this. I will contact you directly. In the mean time, sending you much love and light!

    Hello again Dawn
    Your thinking resonates with me like no other teacher that I have come across. I had another operation last week, and am healing faster than ever before with the help of meditation and visualisation. Cancer is still happily in remission, still living with a lot of pain but do not think much about it. I feel connected to the picture at the top of this page, it feels like ME.
    I worked with Homeless and marginalised individuals for a number of years, learned a lot from the interaction with the clients, I have given a lot to people, yet I am very alone, my boyfriend is always stuck in computer games(violent). He is my only carer does a lot of my shopping and cooking. I believe that he has a kind hart somewhere but he is distractingly negative, I am doing my best to shut out any negativity from him as it is a stressor in my life. He is sleeping mentally. If I change sufficiently so will the interaction I believe.
    I have looked at many spiritual sites, most in your country, are we really evolving as a race? I feel that I have found a spirit guide, but I need a mentor, do you have the time? Your GIFT of the 7 Keys is wonderful all the more so as YOU GAVE it. So many entrepreneurs on the net, it is a web to catch the unwary.
    Thank you for being you,
    Love and Peace

      Hi there Phoebe,

      I’m very glad to hear that the information I am bringing through is of service to you! I do hope your operation recovery is going smoothly and very glad about the cancer remission.

      It does sound like you still have some healing to do around receiving. Between the work you’ve done for people who cannot give back (or often, even appreciate your help) and a partner who is not there for you, you help no one in the end – least of all yourself!

      I encourage you to get as creative as possible in coming up with an alternative. Dependency is not going to get you out of your situation or aid your health, so the more independence you can muster, the more empowered you will be to make wise and nourishing choices for your body, your spirit and your mind.

      The time of the martyr is over, Phoebe. That was an invention by those who seek to control, to keep those who wish to bring light down. You are not helpful by being helpless.

      Glad you have gotten value out of my book, too. It is a way for me to give back.

      But let me be totally clear: I AM an entrepreneur, and like everyone else, I need to put a roof over my head, organic food in my belly and live in this monetary-based world. I am paid well for my services, including mentorships and coaching programs.

      Healers and Helpers work with me in order to reach more clients and build a better, more financially sound business model. If this is something you are interested in, we can have a short (15 min) strategy session to see if there’s a fit. If there is, I’ll recommend what I think would be the right program for you to invest in.

      In the mean time, I encourage you to move away from dependency in any form, to the best of your ability at this time. It will serve your health, support your focus away from the pain and feed and sustain you at a deep soul level!

      Many blessings,
