THE MORNING SHOW
Author of Waking Up to Heal
Is it possible for a traumatic life event to make someone stronger and more compassionate? It is, and author Sharon Critchfield’s new book, “Waking Up to Heal,” helps readers find the blessings hidden beneath the pain.
Whether it’s an addiction, depression, abuse or a death, Critchfield combines her personal experiences and professional training to help readers work through pain in a practical and life-altering way.
She specifically focuses on harnessing the power of energy to heal oneself. “Since everything is energy and energy cannot be created or destroyed, by moving energy around we can help to heal ourselves physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually,” Critchfield said. “Learning to craft our own realities is the first step in creating the life we each desire.”
Critchfield suffered countless traumas in her life, including childhood abuse, the death of her child and the murder of her best friend. Following a severe injury that left her bed-ridden for several months, Critchfield found hope and healing through her study of Reiki. She is now a Reiki Master and offers distance Reiki services with the goal of helping others recover and heal from their own personal traumas.
“There is a massive awakening of people today. They are searching for answers to questions about spirituality, their life paths and even the future of the planet,” Critchfield said. “We must realize that each one of us has a direct effect on the global consciousness every day of our lives with our thoughts, words and actions. We can take an active role in the end result and teach our future generations to do the same.”
