31st. Year Anniversary (1978 - 2009)|
Waverly Evans celebrates 31 years of being healed of Lupus with the
release of her book, Healing Lupus, Steps in a Personal Journey.
Why did she wait thirty years to release her book?
Because I healed myself of lupus, over the years I have
told many people my story. I was happy to share it, hoping that it might benefit
someone. I became a massage therapist in 1987 and have told many of my clients
of my story. Sometimes, one of them would give my name to someone they knew who
had lupus. After talking with many individuals with lupus over the years, I
never heard whether anyone had tried to emotionally heal herself or himself.
Since the general consensus is that no cure for lupus
exists, at times I have wondered if my recovery had been perceived by others as
so extraordinary, or odd, that it might be too difficult for another person to
come close to duplicating it. Even so, I still felt it was possible that another
person could also heal from lupus the way I did. The desire to share my story of
healing has never left me. I just had to have a little more faith in the
A part of me kept wondering if there was a way to get
through to people with lupus, even at the risk of my ideas not working for
someone else as they did for me. The idea of writing a book about my experiences
came to me as I was having lunch with my sweetheart, Bill Workman, in September
2004. I began writing this book two days later.
When I healed myself of lupus in 1978, I was only 24 years
old, so I didn’t have much life experience or perspective to write from. I was
still discovering who I was and what I wanted to do with my life. I would be
foolish to think I have it all figured out by now! But I have gained some
familiarity with how to release painful emotions.
I have continued my healing journey and experienced a
diverse world of recovery work since I began in 1977. One experience just flowed
into another. I “followed my bliss,” as they say. I experimented, searched,
discovered and uncovered multiple facets of myself. I developed my intuition
even more and had wonderful spiritual experiences, which had a tremendous impact
on my life.
My healing journey has been an ever-evolving celebration.
Ever since I was a child, I have been curious about transformation. Fairy tales
and magical stories filled my imagination as a child. As I grew into a teenager,
I acted onstage in plays and transformed myself into characters such as Peter
Pan, an old spinster who poisoned old, lonely men in Arsenic and Old Lace, and
the romantic, idealistic lover, Juliet in Romeo and Juliet. As an adult, I kept
reinventing myself by exploring different professions and personal growth work.
Now I can see that healing myself of lupus carried me
forward into healing in many areas of my life and that this early achievement is
very precious and significant to me. When you’ve climbed the highest mountain,
you feel like you can climb them all! I believe that all the energy I have put
into the healing process—all the workshops, classes, sessions, treatments,
ceremonies and studies—has come back to me as a thousand-fold blessing and
continues to do so.
There are many times when I want to go within and not seek
answers outside myself, when I want to connect with my own inner voice and
guidance. Other times, I feel that I have something to share, learn, write or
teach. I want to keep experiencing healing in its many forms for as long as I
live. It is my birthright.
It is your birthright too!Healing Lupus; Steps in a Personal Journey by
