Lester Greenwood (Seven Star):
I was sent my first vision at 5 yrs old. It was a voice in my bedroom. I remember looking for the source of the voice, moving the bed, looking under it. As a child, I felt that it had come out of thin air.
At 11 yrs old, my father handed me a dowsing stick made of Weeping Willow. That was the start of the energy work I share in my teaching now, in workshops. That dowsing work was about finding things that are unseen by the naked eye. By learning to work with energy at an early age, I learned how to see through the Veil. That would be when I first started seeing auras.
Survival mode kicked in throughout my early to late teens. I completed more vision work in my early twenties. Because the people around me, at that time, didn’t have the teachings to help me with that gift (or curse), I felt trapped and lost. I had the feeling of loneliness while standing in a crowded room, disconnected. I worked on “self medicating” to hide from those gifts. Relationships, drugs, and alcohol helped me to keep the abilities at bay. Any addiction is a way to hide from one’s gifts.
I created a workaholic life, to hide in. One day I looked across the table at dinner, and saw two children in their early teenage years, that I did not know. I realized that I had become a "chameleon" to make other people happy, loosing site of my Self, becoming what "blended in". At that point I started my journey back to my Self, the Self that was lost along the way.
Through the years, on this journey back to Self, I studied Shamanism, Mayan Culture and the Calendar, Reiki and other energy work, Native American Culture and Spirituality, and much other “New Age” information. I have done extensive Inner Child and Past Life Regression work, working with others through Shamanic Journey, to repair the Fragmented Soul.
I am a Reiki Master in the Usui tradition. Through my journey, have been guided to include so much more of the foundations that have led me to my own healing practice, to share with others. I have developed, in cooperation with Spirit, 7 Star Reiki, which builds on the original tradition.
Currently, I have been walking the Red Road, learning the teachings of the “Old Ways”, and recognizing that, while respecting those ways, we must also develop them into the “New Ways”. I find that it is a vital part of life to remain creative, and am often inspired by Spirit to find new creative outlets. This year we have built Divine Creative Inspirations, to help bring a venue for artisans and teachers to gather and share their gifts, as well. I have stepped out of the shadows and into the Light, to lay the ground work for myself, and others, to share our gifts, so that more may find their own.
I channel information from Spirit (personal guides), have performed medium work, and have been called to share the information I have gathered, with others. I am also an Ordained Minister, and perform Sacred Ceremonies for many purposes (weddings, funerals, moon ceremonies, prayer circles, talking circles, house cleansings, etc). As a Shaman, I offer my services as a guide, to help you find your path to healing.
I have been given the gift of Life, with Joy in my Heart. I come as a teacher, and student, to share my experience with you.
