Lesion Free, Diagnosis Free
by Ruth Schrader-Grace
I believe I was in the first class conducted in Sacramento, CA in 1988/1989 and was the youngest student of David's there at the awesome age of 21 or so. My mentor had suggested I study hypnosis as that was my path, my destiny. I thought why not. I love to learn. I studied every weekend for nearly a year and then some in the Bay area taking a few extra courses.
I had a small practice but did not stick with it, however continued practicing hypnosis for myself. Today I still use it and find myself surrounded by people who wish for me to help them. Perhaps then was not the time and today is!
A year ago, I had an interesting event. The entire left side of my face went numb over 6 days and a doctor said that I probably had MS. I had test after test and all were inconclusive. I told the doctor that unless he could prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that I had MS he was not permitted to label me. Later it was discovered that I had a lesion on my brain stem.
I have 2 young boys ages 7 and 10 and simply do not have time for any sort of illness in my life. So began a journey of healing myself.
Through the guided imagery I learned from David Quigley, and by working with my inner self and my inner child, I decided that the lesion on my brain stem would simply have to go. There was no room for it. Less then one year later and 3 MRI's -today thru hypnosis and meditation based on my education with David Quigley - I am lesion free and have no diagnosis whatsoever!
If you have any doubt that your mind is stronger then your body, I am proof that mind over body is real and that you can change destiny if you will it!
Infinite Love and Gratitude!
