It was New Years Eve and in the spirit of “fresh starts”, I was online, trying to find SOMETHING that would help me finally get over a soul connection that I experienced 6 months prior. I came across an article which felt as though it had been written for me. I scrolled to the end of the article to find the author’s name. One quick Google search and there I was on Steve Gunn’s site. I promptly ordered his audiobook SOUL CONNECTIONS – The Myths and The Metaphysics. Everything he said made so much sense, it was real and not full of the usual pop-spiritual fluff that I had grown so tired of. I sent him an email immediately. I felt deeply that I had come across him for a reason, but I had no idea he (and his work) would change my entire life!
My initial reading with Steve was amazing, he is a very talented psychic and read my situation so accurately, as well as the karma that still needed to be resolved to finally transcend the soul connection. I must mention, in my attempts to sort out the emotional trauma left over from the soul connection, I had gone the typical route of seeking advice from mystical sources. I had sessions with a traditional shaman as well as a highly-regarded energy healer. Both of them mentioned that I posses a “power”. One even described my energy system in great detail in regards to this powerful energy. I was definitely intrigued, but didn’t really know what to make of it until Steve also mentioned this during our initial consultation. He went further and confirmed that embracing this power was the path to transcending the soul connection, that my karmic lesson was to step into my natural energy and stop suppressing it. He asked if there were times in my life that I felt like I was holding myself back… “yeah, pretty much always” I said. I began to recall all the times when I had to “play small” in order to keep the peace, or allow someone else to shine, or simply avoid expressing emotions to avoid conflict. I realized I had been playing down my whole life! In fact, I was a little scared at the idea of releasing my power, I had gotten very good at keeping things buttoned up. But I knew that all things had led me here, and the opportunity to work with Steve couldn’t have felt more right.
I signed up for his Ptsen Nuh (“PN”) course right away, my first session was on my birthday, which seemed very appropriate. While it might sound dramatic, it did indeed turn out to be the first day of the rest of my life. I wish I could say PN was a piece of cake, it wasn’t! It was probably the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but Steve was there every step of the way and he showed the patience and compassion of a saint. He was also, as any good teacher/coach is, tough and unrelenting, he wasn’t going to take any of my sh*t and he was impervious to any attempts of self-pity or manipulation. I would have to imagine that working with me was a bit like breaking a wild stallion, I was stubborn and hard-wired with lots of self-serving habits and beliefs, but he remained steadfast by simply reinforcing the disciplines. I was very slow to surrender to the process, but as I did, I began to see and feel the results. And BOY were they worth the effort! Some (ok, most) of the sessions were tough, taking me to new places and pushing me to let go of my old ways of doing things, but through the discomfort came such enormous relief and lightness. I was also beginning to feel this powerful energy within me, there were times I actually felt like a super-hero! At that point, there was no stopping me, I could tell this work was setting me free in every way possible.
I was three months into PN when I felt like I turned a big corner. As I observed some of the recent changes in my life, I saw that the friendships that had been sucking my good-nature dry, were no longer suitable, and I simply moved on. Also, for the first time in my life, I was having honest and straightforward conversations that I would have previously avoided. There was no more fear of conflict, I could finally be objective, honest and assertive as well as show deep compassion. No longer did I have to suppress myself, worrying that I might rock the boat. This made for beautifully genuine interactions, even when discussing some tough topics. I felt freer than I had ever felt. I could finally embrace this powerful energy and not be afraid of the outcome. I also felt like there wasn’t anything I couldn’t do. To say this work is “empowering” sounds a bit cliche, but it is just that – and more!…
In addition to the changes in my well-being, I experienced profound physical changes as well. Several years earlier, I had overcome serious and debilitating illness, and from time to time, I still struggled with fatigue and pain when I would over-exert myself. I figured that I had gained back so much of my life, so I accepted that this would be as good as it gets, and that I would have to manage my physical energy for the rest of my life. But, when I began PN, I started experiencing bursts of energy that were quite unusual for me, and as the weeks went on, my overall stamina began to increase. I no longer needed “recovery” days after a long work week. I was taking fewer naps and I was finding myself pushing my body in ways that I hadn’t been able to in years. It was nothing short of remarkable! I really never thought I would feel this good again. I am now more active than I was before I was sick and my body responds as if that time never happened.
I had always felt like there was a missing piece to the puzzle that was preventing me from being truly healthy, well, this is it! Based on my experience, there are no limits to what you can achieve with PN.
