I have been a healer by profession for 23+ years. I live on the Big Island of Hawaii on 12 acres in the rainforest. My connection to the elements, nature and the spirit of the Hawaiian islands has guided my healing, and continues to do so. It is here on this island that I witness the manifestation of my co-creation with the elements and nature most profoundly.
My professional training as a healer began in a remote community up in the mountains called Idyllwild. I was blessed to be taught for 5 years in a full immersion training: averaging 12 hours a day, 6 days a week. After the first 6 months of just working on myself, the rest of my training was done while I worked with clients, with my teacher closely monitoring my work. It was as rewarding as it was challenging.
I believe we all have several gifts we came into this life with. But just like the person who has a gift to be a great musician, without training and practice they will never manifest that gift to its full potential. One of my gifts I came in with is the gift to heal, but this latent talent did not begin to be clearly evident until I committed to the disciplined and comprehensive training and practice that I was extremely fortunate to receive.
Because of my remoteness geographically, a significant part of my training was in how to do this work from a distance. In other words, I can facilitate your healing while I am in Hawaii and you are at home wherever that is in the world. We are all connected, and have the potential to connect consciously to others on an energetic level. But this takes training. My training involved how to “see” someone from a distance, and how to communicate to their body in such a way that it begins to heal itself.
I have worked with and helped Shamans, Kahunas and various amazing healers who have spent their lives on spiritual journeys, as well as those that are just discovering there is more to this life. I have a personal understanding of what it takes to heal the physical limitations of being a highly sensitive person and use this gift in profound ways.
I am also a highly sensitive person. As a child I didn't know what to do with it. I learned to be in fear. I lived most of my life in fear of what others thought of me. Fear of making a mistake. Fear of being rejected. Fear of not being loved.
This physically manifested into severe allergies to foods and my environment. I had several operations as a child and had to go to the hospital every week for a series of shots for years. This became my normal life. I was allergic or highly sensitive to grasses, pollen, certain trees, dogs, cats, horses, milk, eggs, apples, bananas, avocados... The list goes on. I had tubes in my ears and couldn't go swimming for years. And when I finally could go in the pool, I wasn't allowed to get my ears wet, so I had to wear one of those white plastic caps. Imagine the teasing I got from that.
Because of my hypersensitivity I looked for ways to protect myself. I learned to sense others' emotions. To get an intuitive sense of what they were feeling so I could adjust what I said or did based on that information. It's hard sometimes to look back and see that so much of my earlier life was based on what others thought or did. But it also taught me in ways I didn't realize at the time. Learning to feel what others were feeling would be an instrumental foundation for the healing and energy work I do now.
I used this sense to try to protect my own feelings. To try to avoid the pain of being hurt by others. And that led me to being shy and introverted. That was a downward spiral that caused me to be teased and bullied, which made me even more isolated. I wouldn't express my feelings until I knew the environment was a safe one to do that in. Even then I would be constantly monitoring. My guard always up.
I didn't look at this as a gift. I thought it was a fault of mine. That I was weak, or screwed up in some way. Why couldn't I be like others? Why did I have to be in fear of what others thought about me?
I didn't know how to shut this off. I didn't know how to make this a gift rather then the burden I felt it was.
It wasn't until I was 32 that I experienced what seeing energy could do in a positive way. It was a fairly traumatic event that was literally burned into my memory. I was working on my old car, which was overheating. As I was leaning over the engine with the hood up, the radiator exploded. I was caught in a burst of poisonous, scalding, liquid and metal. My face, arms and hands were burning.
I looked at my arms and hands, seeing the redness of the skin, brushing off burning metal flakes. I went into my house, calling out to my soon to be wife, Nedrra. When I saw the look in her eyes I knew my face must be bad.
Nedrra is a truly gifted empath and an incredible healer, who I trust with my life. But as she sat me down to help, she said something that would change my life. "Do you want to learn how to heal yourself? This is your opportunity."
Even in the pain, I knew this was right. I nodded. As she guided me, I began to see the energy in a whole new way. I could see the energy in my body, and in my arms in particular. I saw the escalation of crisis that was going on with my skin. I learned how to work with this energy. How to shift the direction, and how to guide my own body to heal itself.
Within minutes my body had stopped escalating in crisis. In less than 10 minutes the swelling on my arms was beginning to subside, along with the pain. And within 1 hour, what was going to be a severe burn, was now just splotchy red marks on my face and arms. Weeks later even the scars disappeared.
Thus began my journey into 'quantum healing'. I studied under Nedrra full time for the next 5 years, first learning how to heal myself, then working with others. She is still my mentor and who I turned to if I have a challenging case and seek a second opinion.
What was once a burden, was now the foundation I could build on to help others heal. Heal from physical conditions. Heal from the sensitivities of their environment. And learn how to sustain this for themselves.
Over the past 23+ years as a practitioner, I've learned how to do my work from a distance. This means you do not have to see me in person at my home in Hawaii. I work with people from different parts of the world. We talk by phone during most treatments.
My mission as a healer is to help you to emanate from your authentic self. To co-create with nature in a way that reactivates your body to heal itself. And finally to learn how to co-create the life you want.
Together we will be addressing the physical condition as well as the emotional and spiritual connections that may be furthering the dis-ease in your body.
Together we will look at and address all aspects that may be contributing to the dis-ease you're experiencing.
I waited 32 years to begin to change my life. But I needed help from someone who had gone there before. Imagine what your life would be like if you had that help! What would you be doing that you can't do now? How would your life change?
It would be my honor to speak with you further about this. If you'd like to know more about working with me, let's set up a time to talk.
Recognized by internationally renown medical medium Anthony William, psychic surgeon and healer extraordinaire Phillip Malicdan, and Kachi Golden (spiritual leader of the Acjachemen Nation) as a 'true healer', Nedrra Lanakila specializes in coaching seasoned practitioners (western medicine and alternative) who strive to refine and expand their healing service and grounded techniques. In partnership over the last 23+ years, Daerick and Nedrra also provide revitalizing, healing and spiritually transformative private retreats within their 12 acres of enchanting, lush Hawaiian rainforest located on Volcano, Hawaii.
