    this is the best kind of ‘dear john’ letter :-)
    Wow! There is a 20+ year of mfr worker in our
    vicinity, who is a phenomenal blessing and who I had the blessing (she takes no new clients) to be worked on twice, on consecutive Mondays.
    I was so ‘ready’ to experience this as fully
    and deeply as I possibly could, and the clarity
    of healing which I received, the understanding
    of what was happening energetically (I am an
    empath, and a ‘sensitive’) on all levels has been truly life-empowering.
    Your understanding of the faulty metaparadigm
    and what emanates from it is another piece
    of ‘brilliant truth’ which resonates within me. I always felt that the modalities which
    truly ‘read’ and work with ‘the bodies’ (such as pulse diagnosis and applied Kinesiology)
    hold the key to finding cause behind/beneath
    the ‘symptomatic outcome’, and assisting both the unravelling and encouragement of fullness
    of healing.
    Can you recommend or direct me to find an MFR
    the Ft. Myers, FL area, who you have mentored?
    Thank you, heartsmiles and God Bless you,
