Mary Zelmer, Qigong SFQ Master Healer II, and Teacher of SFQ and Qi-ssage
For as long as I can remember I've had an intuitive connection with nature and the spiritual world. My existence here had no limitations and was filled with love. I remember once when I was small, I had been seriously hurt and I had an out of body experience, where I was looking down on myself. I was guided to watch as some angelic beings placed what looked like a net over my body. When they pulled the net up it seemed to melt and lift away a lot of the pain and injury. There was something very powerful, joyful and beautiful about what they did for me and I could feel something awaken in my heart. Ever since that experience I have had a compelling compassion for understanding and learning healing arts and using my tools and gifts to help all living things heal in order to experience joy, beauty and inner strength in their lives.
During hard times in my life, I have always naturally turned to the healing qualities of nature. The trees, plants, air, stars and water support me and affect my heart in the same way as I felt during my healing experience with the angelics. But I always felt like I was missing something, I never quite felt I understood what they were showing me. I would find out it was a way to connect deeper into my heart with the world, the universe and everything in-between.
Over the years I relearned many different healing modalities, when quite by a stroke of luck I found qigong. When I started qigong in 2002, my digestion was very poor and I had lost twenty pounds. I was experiencing pain, fatigue, flash backs, panic attacks, anger, resentment, TMJ, lung issues and depression. For a reason I did not yet understand at that time, I was not thinking about healing myself, but using it for others. I could feel energy, sensations coming out of my hands and qigong gave me the tools to focus and understand how energy works and how I could use it to help others.
Qigong was created by the Taoist by studying nature and its relationships. It also helps to develop and fine tune any gifts one carries. I started to realize that even though qigong originated in China, as a child, I was already starting to naturally master working with energy or to transform energy, which is the definition of qigong.
I now have a deeper connection with my inner self, nature, and all living things. I have become aware of how to use my unique gifts and in doing so understand my reason for being here on this planet. Where there was pain and sorrow, I now feel joy, inner strength and beauty in everything. We are all precious gifts and we have things to do. Let me help you find your path, your gifts, so you can bring them into your life and the lives of those you love.
Mary is very kind and loving. She likes to help people unconditionally. Her mastery of qigong is outstanding and our clients love her so much. Mary started and organized many wonderful ReachOut programs, helping a lot of people with health through Spring Forest Qigong. She is a wonderful qigong master healer and teacher.
