- Day 4 Empowered Spirit – focus is energy healing of body, mind and spirit by Krystalya Marie
About Krystalya Marie
A natural born teacher and healer, Krystalya enjoys supporting others on their path to growth and healing by working with the body, mind and spirit as a whole.As a child she was injured on a bicycle and although the injury was nothing more than a severe bruise her doctor told her that she would probably have pain in the area of the injury whenever it was cold or damp for the rest of her life. During her mid 20’s she discovered that she had the innate ability to heal herself. Once she realized this, she was able to stop having the pain that her doctor had programmed her to have for all of those years. Since that time she has taught many people various techniques to overcome their doctor’s predictions. She emphasizes that it is not the doctors fault, although she does feel that doctors need to be more careful with the words they use and the predictions they make. More importantly though she points out that it is up to each of us to decide whether we are going to believe what our doctors tell us without question or whether we are going to decide to listen to our inner healer.Ms. Marié spent over 13 years in talk therapy only to discover that although her life had improved dramatically she was still carrying much of her childhood baggage. In 2000 she met author and teacher Dawn E. Clark and through Ms. Clark’s processes learned to heal deep emotional issues. This work helped her immensely, yet this was just the beginning.
