Well, today, February 16, 2013, I am Diane Jackman Skolfield, a 56 year young woman sitting at my computer working on several Healing Projects and enjoying living a very full and fun life.
The Masters I study would say, I am a soul in a human spacesuit going through this universe at this point in time, creating my existence. Where has my journey taken me thus far? On a walk through a living meditation and living in a walking meditation.
I started teaching exercises in 1982 at the YWCA in Bangor, Maine. I didn’t like what aerobics did to my knees so I “invented” exercises for what I called our Gut Busters Class. Later I found these exercises were Pilates poses so I guess one would say I had been tapping into the collective consciousness to help myself and my students lose the weight around their middles and strengthen their core.
I am a certified advanced Hatha Yoga Instructor and began my serious study in solitude of Kriya Yoga through SRF (Self Realization Fellowship) begun by Paramahansa Yogananda, my guru, my master, back in 1996. He passed onto the other dimension in 1952 and comes to me clearly in times of need. I have been sharing his exercises along with many other masters' exercises since 1996.
I have a certificate in advanced Hatha Yoga and can teach the more advanced poses but prefer to keep my classes at a simpler, more relaxed-meditative level, not only for myself but for my students.
I have been teaching Energy Medicine Exercises including; Yoga, Laughter Yoga, Qi Gong (a Chinese self-healing tradition), Jin Shin Jyutsu (The Japanese Art of Living) and teachings from C. Norm Shealy M.D., Ph,D and Donna Eden in workshops from Florida to Maine to help others rejuvenate their bodies, minds and spirits.
I am a sponge for knowledge when it comes to health, healing and natural methods to better our well being. Medical Intuit Workshops with C. Norman Shealy Ph.D, Oly Shalow, Barbara Razor, and Winter Robinson taught me a most important fact; we all have the ability to tap into the Universal Life Force for answers concerning our own health and the health of others. I continue to learn from these extremely intelligent, loving people I have am blessed to know.
Mediumship workshops with Stephen Hermann opened my eyes to this truth; we all have the power to detect Spirit World’s messages. The ones who have passed to another dimension are always trying to help us reach our goals for the highest good of all.
Workshops with Donna Eden (30 year energy medicine veteran) and her husband (David Feinstein Ph.D., 30 years on John Hopkins staff) at Omega Institute the summer of 2009 validated my energy exercises-she's teaching many of the same exercises I have been sharing! Donna told me my life color was "the violet-est of violets, and that I was a "teacher of teachers," and right in the middle of my life's path. David showed me EFT tapping, a path to help people who are stuck in pain whether from their emotions or physical issue with their bodies. Anger, fear and grief are unavoidable parts of our lives but when we get stuck in those feelings and can't move past them they begin to cause "dis" ease. Our thoughts are frequencies and can cause more pain than we realize. Through tapping on our meridians we can release those feelings and move on to a life we design for ourselves filled with happiness and peace.
I am a member of the American Council on Fitness Education and became a Minister of the Universal Church in 1996.
I also teach people about natural health care options and help them understand how to lose weight, eat right and feel better about themselves. I do this by sharing what I have learned about "detoxing"...out with the bad and in with the good---out with the old and in with the new.
Replacing bad habits with good habits not only helped me lose weight, it most likely saved my life, so why wouldn't I share my experiences with anyone interested in helping themselves?
I am not a doctor, and if you are going to change your diet or do any exercise, I suggest you consult your doctor. I do not claim any of my suggestions will help you, I am simply sharing what I have done to improve my quality of life. It is my body, if I don't take care of it, where will I live?
I wish you peace, happiness, health and lots of laughter, and not necessarily in that order. To read more about me please go to The Whole Story Page.
If you would like me to do a workshop in your area or work with you privately over the Internet on qi gong, yoga, jin shin jyutsu, frequency healing and/or energy exercises, email me. I look forward to working with you!
Who am I?
