Hi, my name is Firoozeh (pronounced fear-roo-zay’ ).
I was born in Iran into a Baha’i family, and I became a member of the Baha’i Faith at age 15. I left Iran after graduating from high school in 1979, when the government changed because of revolution, and the persecution of the Baha’is started. I was onboard one of the last planes to leave Iran, before the US Embassy was seized and the US hostages were taken.
Had I applied for my exit visa just one day later, I would not have gotten my documents back before the embassy takeover, I would not have been able to re-locate to the US or become an American citizen, and thus, my life would have turned out quite differently.
Challenges/opportunities for growth
At 18 years old, I arrived alone in the US to attend college, not knowing a soul, and not speaking much English! After college, my goal was to get married, have a family, and do my best to bring up children that were spiritual, balanced, strong, and confident in this world.
By my early 30s I had not found anyone compatible, and not knowing God had other plans for me, I was getting depressed. I continued my art business, while keeping myself available for the right partner.
During a 1999 pilgrimage to Haifa, Israel (the Baha’i Faith’s Holy Land), I had a very long and sincere conversation with God, and asked him to please show me my mate so that I could share the rest of my life with him. Two nights in a row while there, I dreamt of a specific gentleman. In one dream he asked me to marry him!
Six months later I met my wonderful husband, and we have been together ever since.
Since my 20s I've suffered with headaches along with neck and back pain which got progressively worse, until I would find myself in bed 10 to 15 days a month recovering from migraines, or other health problems. I would get tired very quickly after simple tasks, and my hands and body were almost always shaking.
Various doctors, including MDs, naturopaths, nutritionists and allergy specialists, all had different ideas about what was causing the problems. But most agreed that stress was an important factor. An anti-inflammatory diet which my chiropractor suggested helped a lot, but still I did not feel normal.
Once again I had an openhearted conversation with God to please help me. Life did not seem worth living like this. I wanted to be vibrant, and love and serve my community. Not being able to do those things, create my art, or enjoy my loved ones was killing me.
Releasing the Negative Energy
Soon after that conversation, I saw a posting on facebook about energy sessions. Having had experiences with previous signs from God, as the way he brings us solutions, and having had things manifested through prayer and meditation, I decided to check it out. The sessions were about receiving more energy, which seemed to be exactly what I needed.
In the first 5 minutes of my first relaxation session, the knots in my neck and shoulders that had been there for years were released! Neither massage nor any other treatment I had tried could get these knots to relax. I slept through the night for the first time in a while and woke up full of energy and refreshed.
The sessions taught me that I had a lot of negative energy stored deep inside of me, that it would take a while to get rid of all of that old “stuck stuff”, and that I must be patient while I release it. Through the sessions I learned how to release the old mental blockages which were manifested through my body’s physical pain.
Now I feel much more stable, stronger, and no more shaking. The migraines are happening very infrequently, and most of my aches and pains are gone! I have learned to connect with energy all times of day or night. It is wonderful. I have not felt this good and productive in ages.
One of my life goals has always been to serve and make this a better world. I realized that being an energy coach is the perfect way of shining the Divine light and giving energy and love to others. I can serve by teaching them to open up their hearts and consequently improve their own daily lives.
There are a lot of good people out there who don’t know how to strengthen their connection with God through prayer alone. They need the help of others who have been through the same experience, and understand how hard it can be to shine brightly.
I am here to help in any way I can. I feel that I have had several challenging opportunities for growth like many of you, and if I can help someone have a better perspective and be happier in their life, then I have fulfilled my own life’s purpose!
