About Jessica Gammell-Bennett

I am a highly sensitive person. That means my brain and nervous system are acutely attuned to my environment. Bright lights, loud noises, and tags in clothing distract and distress me. I am also an empath. I can feel others' emotions. Early in life, these traits were overwhelming and confusing.

Now I know that these traits are "superpowers." And I know that setting energetic boundaries and practicing energy hygiene are the foundations of self care.

About Evolution Energetics

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 was humbled. This time by this sweet soul and our good fortune.

In the summer of 2022 I began to offer group healings with Evolution Energetics in the Wilmington area. In January of 2023, I taught the first Foundations course. In July of 2023, I taught the first Physical Healing course. Right afterwards, I lost my sister Laura. Before she passed, we "downloaded" a symbol together. It was a wrench and a rose. After she passed, my toddler would bring me wrenches, and people were sending me roses.

In August 0f 2023, I was diagnosed with invasive squamous cell carcinoma. I knew immediately that the wrench and the rose were somehow supposed to help me heal. I had my son draw it, and I sent it to dozens of friends and family and asked them to send it to me. I was not able to finish treatment due to the side effects, but the healing that everyone sent gave me the strength, support, and stamina my mind, body, and spirit needed to finish healing the cancer. 

In summer of 2024, I will offer the first emotional healing course. The spiritual healing course will follow six months later.
