About Mari Wajer
There were many bright spots in my history as well as painful losses. I had wonderful relationships with friends and lovers, (I now recognize those were my sustaining angels and beacons of hope.) I was a single mother of 2 beautiful girls, and one daughter who I lost and miraculously found 30 years later. The girls and I have struggled, and loved deeply. I am grateful.
Over the years, I was introduced to Louise Hay, Thich That Hahn, Eckhart Toole, mindfulness, reiki, life coaching, shamanic healing arts, life coaching, and a host of other loving souls and practices, each giving me a piece of love, of acceptance, and guidance to push me forward and most importantly, inward. Somewhere in there I came to the knowing that I was a piece of divine love, that within my heart was everything I needed. I do not always know how to access that information for inner peace, but it is a gift to know, and that knowing continues to unfold and lead me forward.
In middle age I moved from a large city, where I had spent my entire life, to a small progressive town in rural Wisconsin. I realized I hadn't seen the stars for 20 years!
On the day I left for my new life, I found out my father, and my abuser, was dying of cancer. I thought I had found peace with him, and I had to a great extent, after years of therapy. I knew he was a tortured soul, with his own unresolved past pain, and I loved him, but more was to be revealed.
After my father's death, my heart broke open. I asked for help and healing, from god, from angels, from spirit guides, from friends, from new doctors and counselors, from shamans, from family, from spiritual leaders in the community, from herbalists and nutritionists, from yoga, from trees and flowers and the earth and sky, from anyone and anything that would listen. And listen they did! Love poured in. I made the decision to go off psychiatric medications, after two decades. I found refuge in a beautiful natural place and experienced an incredible, even miraculous awakening. Today I know that I am One with All. From the butterfly who sat so sweetly in my hands during my meditation, to the earth mother who smiled at me with blooms of pink and purple, and every kind and loving being in between . I know I am a piece of this wondrous Oneness, of Love in any name you choose. I know that Love is the answer to every question, every need, every pain, every wound. I know that Love is where and when healing occurs. I know that Love leads me to inner peace and healing and that fear takes me away from it.
So here I am, a reiki healer, life coach, earth healing mentor, and fellow human. I have known pain, physical, mental, and emotional, and I have known love and it's capacity to heal. I believe Love, in whatever form, is the true healer. Be it the love of a tree, the love of a human, animal, or bird, the love of a spirit guide, Jesus, or Great Spirit.
I hold a loving place for you. I acknowledge that you hold, in the essence of who you are, the power, wisdom, and Love to heal yourself. My gift is to hold a place for you to expand and connect with your true nature. There you will find the power to stand in the truth of who you are, and you will find joy. On my journey I have longed for someone to see me, to encourage and support me in discovering my soul, without attempting to impose their truth upon me. It is my intention to be that kind of spirit in the lives of others. I will stand with you, even when you can not stand with yourself, indeed in those times to ask for help is to stand with yourself :-) I invite you to call me if you feel led.
