March of 2009 I was lead to the EmoTrance website. After surfing the mega information there I downloaded the free ebook "Introduction to EmoTrance" by Dr. Silvia Hartmann and so discovered the joy of EmoTrance. It was just what I had been searching for. I was so in love with it that I downloaded her other free e-book, " The Enchanted World".
I wanted to learn more! I purchased the ebook versions of "Oceans of Energy", "Living Energy" and "Energy Magic" because I didn't want to wait for the post to deliver the paperbacks. It took me only a week to read those 5 books because I was so engrossed in the simplicity and accuracy of this energy healing technique. Then I realized that something was missing.
The books were great. They gave great instructions for using EmoTrance on yourself, but I still felt as though something was missing. I searched the EmoTrance.Com website for a practitioner and was drawn to the profile and picture of Sandra Hillawi so I called and scheduled a private EmoTrance session by phone. I wasn't even sure what I wanted to work on, but after a short conversation Sandra dove right in and started to coach me to soften and flow. Within just a few minutes a problem that I didn't even consciously realize was a problem had taken on new life. Within another few minutes instead of feeling nothing in relation to this issue, I felt energized and hopeful.
This was fantastic! And, I wanted to learn more, so I started searching right away for a live course. That search lead me back to Sandra Hillawi because there were no active EmoTrance trainers here in the United States. In October of 2009 Sandra Hillawi, Master Trainer of EmoTrance and Author of "The Love Clinic", traveled to Texas USA to teach EmoTrance to me and about 9 other participants.
I was so thrilled with the luck of locating a Master Trainer who was willing to travel to us, and also not sure when the opportunity for training would present itself again that I signed up for the four days of training that takes you from Self-Help to Trainer. The concept of transforming emotional energy in this way was so exciting. Those four days were a whirlwind of exercises, information and healing. It was a very energizing seminar that I have never forgotten.
From that day my priority was to make other people aware of this fantastic healing tool and to change the direction and make it easier for those here in the United States to attend a seminar. Through monthly workshops, meetups/healing circles, teleconferences, my radio show, setting up as a vendor at conferences and psychic fairs, speaking before other healing groups, advertisement and word of mouth, EmoTrance has grown here in Texas and the surrounding states. Having trained 88 people through Self-Help courses and licensing 37 people as Practitioners or Advanced Practitioners, this September 2011 Self-Help and Practitioner workshop was the last one that I will facilitate here in Texas.
The reason that this workshop was the last one that I will facilitate in Texas is that in April of this year I was given permission to begin training trainers of EmoTrance. I am excited to announce that since that time I have trained/licensed 4 trainers and have 6 other trainers in varying stages of the training that will be offering classes after November of 2011. This will give me free time to focus more on advertisment, finishing my book on EmoTrance and Earth Medicine and to train more trainers that will be offering classes as well. It is all so exciting!
Perhaps that explains why this September training was so near and dear to my heart. Several people who had been inquiring about courses but could never seem to coordinate their schedules to attend before, were in attendance this time. One of those attendees is a long time friend and spiritual sister who is a program director of veterans programs in Muskogee, Oklahoma. I am so excited at the possibility of EmoTrance being used to help returning soldiers in distress from the war. Also, I was excited that one of Erickson's fantastic trainers came to attend EmoTrance and has plans to become a Trainer of EmoTrance himself. The possibilities are endless!
Also in attendance were two recently licensed trainers, 1 veteran trainer and 1 trainer who just renewed his license after a 2 year absence. With that, those that were new to EmoTrance were fortunate to receive the valuable experience of 5 trainers during this course. WIth so much experience and personal attention in the room everything flowed so easily.
In October of 2011 I will be facilitating a Trainer's Retreat where we will focus on how to build their practices. There will be brainstorming of new and exciting ways to offer the EmoTrance workshops. There will be a review of the Trainer's training with more exercises to build their techniques. Three of the attendees for the September Practitioner certification are scheduled to return in November to take their trainer's training.
As a part of the curriculum, the seminar attendees took a journey to a local park area for the energy nurtition exercise. It was a new and enlivening experience to use nature as the focus of the energy nurtition exercise. In the past we used crystals, statues, ideaology, and visioning in the energy nutrition exercise.
While we were there enjoying the soft and relaxing energy of nature we accomplished some proxy work for one of the participants. I am excited to share that discovery with you. Beth Dodd and I often experiment with new places and new ways to use EmoTrance. We found that when 2 or more people proxy 1 person at the same time that the energy moves much faster, smoother and effective. During this proxy exercise there were 8 people participating in proxying varying levels of the same issue on a woman who had given her baby up for adoption over 50 years ago. It was so exciting. The participants really enjoyed the work, too.

With the new trainers now offering multiple course options I look forward to the expedicious advancement of EmoTrance in Texas and the United States. So, please watch for the advertisements on Its-About-Energy.Com and EmoTrance.Com. Perhaps you will attend a course soon.
