Rev. Sandra Foster

Rev. Sandra Foster I recently had a chance to chat with Sandra about herself and her work. Here are some excerpts....

If you could offer your services to anyone in the news today - celebrity or politician or criminal or victim of a crime or anyone else, who would it be and why?

I can't think of a specific individual but there is a passion in me to help the 'movers and shakers' of this world to understand that now is the time to change our old mindset of might makes right with a new more enlightened mindset of unity, compassion and cooperation not only to each other and all nations but towards the earth as well. It is time for our specsis to finally grow up.

Read more about Sandra's work, her personal story, and her favorite foods after the break or contact Rev. Sandra Foster.

Besides your work, what are you interested in? If you weren't a healer, what might you be doing with your life? Any particular activities or passions take up your non-work time?

I love to oil paint and to dance. I am an avid reader and I like to garden. I am intensely interested in metaphysics and science as well ( as a child I wanted to be an astronomer or maybe a geologist). I will be taking classes this winter in doing voice over work- it is SO much fun (and potentially profitable too). I am also in the process of putting together a series of workshops on finding the Joy in life. They will be entitled Awakening to Joy. I see these once a month workshops (six of them) being useful for people who feel like they have hit their own personal brick wall- a way for them to begin a spiritual path that leads to greater inner balance and well being. More on that after the first of the year.

What has been the most rewarding part of your work - a specific person you've helped or a specific modality that you feel is most beneficial or some situation where you were able to alter the outcome....?

It is extremely rewarding to me to be able help others find that 'aha' place that changes their lives. People come to me for all kinds of different reasons, physical, emotional, and spiritual. I saw one client who had just gotten rid of a parasite he had had in his body for 10 years and his body was run down and he was very thin. We worked together one time and then I didn't see him for two months or so and he looked like a completely different person. He had gained weight, (at least 10 pounds) and he was happier and able to asimulate food better and more balanced in every way.

I worked with a woman who had a brother who was always running the family and intimidating everyone. Working with the energetic 'cordings' between them and grounding connections, the woman was able to easily stand up to him and not be bowled over with his aggressive posturing. I have worked with people who have boundary issues with their spouse to help them stand up for their personal truth. One of my chair massage clients fell on her wrist and sprained it badly- something which usually takes a month or more to heal. I worked on the wrist for abut five minutes and then when I saw her the next week, she indicated to me that the wrist went through all the healing stages in one night and was fine by the next morning. (However, it hurt like crazy that night.) Another massage client had a painful lump on the side of her leg which her doctor's couldn't seem to help her with. After working with her, it went away by the next time I saw her. From my perspective she was carrying some energy from a past (?) life experience and I removed it. I have worked with people who are depressed and seen positive change. And sometimes it is just as simple as they need their energy system cleared, charged and balanced for greater energy and well being.
