Jess's Journey:

From Failure to Thrive to Helping Others' Heal

I began my sojourn on this Earth, fighting for my life. After five months in the NICU, I developed failure to thrive. I was giving up. Not sure that I would survive, but but knowing that I most surely would not if I stayed, the doctors sent me home. And survive I did. I would endure 30+ surgeries over the course of my childhood. I would watch my father decline through my teens and finally lose him at the age of seventeen, just as I was old enough to have real conversations with him. 

At twenty years old, and at the peak of health, I would begin a fifteen-year battle with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, during which I would contract meningitis, lose half of my hair, the sight in my left eye, and my thyroid function. There were times that I wanted to quit, wanted to leave, just knew I couldn't take it anymore. But a voice whispered, “You are not done. Keep fighting.” So I hung on. When my physical body broke down, I learned that beauty does not come from the outside, but rather from a knowing deep within us that we are whole. When I lost my sight, forced to lay with eye patches for weeks on end, I was forced to go within. To notice the constant chatter “You are not good enough, you are not lovable, you are broken.” And it was then, that an epic battle with my ego commenced.

It was here, in the trough, between despair and hope, darkness and grace, that I found my spiritual partner. In John, I have one of my greatest mirrors. He is the one who shows me the wounds that still need tending. The battles that aren't quite over. The darkness that still needs to be integrated into the light. And through him, I began to see how beautiful I am. How whole. How perfect, just as I am. In his adoring eyes, I see my divinity. I would go on to learn Reiki and heal physically, emotionally, and spiritually. And the pendulum would swing. Towards health. Towards wholeness. Towards love. Towards light.

And then, after being told I wouldn't be able to have children, I welcomed my baby boy, Garrett. And my heart would break open. And all of my remaining clutter, my crap, my constant need to be perfect, would be magnified. I would be humbled, brought to my knees, I would scream and rage at my helplessness, my desire to control, my inability still, after all this time, to be present. And then, finally, I would surrender.

“Show me,” I implored of my son, “… show me how to be. How to live. How to love. Show me where I'm broken so that I may finally be whole.” And show me he did.

In Garrett's presence, I have found the present moment, I have learned the art of surrendering to what life is trying to teach me. I have been humbled. I have found grace. I have thrived.


In March of 2020, Just as the world was shutting down from COVID, I began to "download" new healing symbols. I knew from over a decade of studying energy healing that it was a new healing system. I spent the next year working with clients to understand the new system and what it was here to do.

Four months into working with the new system, I became pregnant with my second child at the age of forty-two. I was the healthiest I'd been in over twenty years. I was able to run a couple of miles a day throughout my pregnancy and carried Connell to full term.

He received all of the healing energy I had channeled for my clients throughout my pregnancy, and as a newborn, he was incredibly alert, he laughed out loud and ‘talked’ all of the time. He is full of joy and has brought immense peace and joy to our family. Parenting him has been effortless and fun. I have no doubt that the miracle of this child is a result of Evolution Energetics. Once again, I am humbled. This time by this sweet soul and our good fortune.

After all of the struggles, all of the healing, all of the soul searching, I have arrived at a place of profound peace. I am not done. Not by a longshot. I still have so much to learn. But I do have some perspective.

I know that :

… all of these ‘challenges’ are opportunities. To learn. To heal. To evolve.
… life is always for me, never against me.
… when I'm ready, life gives me exactly the lessons I need.
… my greatest days lie not behind me or in front of me.
here, at this moment, is where life happens. Garrett taught me that.
… I am a warrior, and all of my ‘battles’ have prepared me for the work I'm doing now. Fighting for peace. For love, For consciousness. For humanity to awaken.
