Article about Kay Miller-Smith from CanvasRebel:
We caught up with the brilliant and insightful Kay Smith a few weeks ago and have shared our conversation below.
Kay, thanks for taking the time to share your stories with us today Was there a defining moment in your professional career? A moment that changed the trajectory of your career?
As a pilates instructor I believed as long as I stayed active, I’d be free of pain always. By 2018, I had developed severe osteoarthritis in both shoulders. It got so bad, I could no longer drive the stick shift of my Mini Cooper. That began my quest in how to heal myself. I took a year long course of Eden Energy Medicine to learn energy techniques. I learned a lot, and improved certain aspects of my health, but not the arthritis. I also tried chakra clearing, Reiki and the Emotion Code. Nothing helped.
A defining moment came when I met someone at a network meeting who said she was a Theta healer. I was intrigued and tried a few sessions. I felt a release of some old beliefs and patterns that had been holding me back for years. It felt like Divine Timing so I signed up for certification classes in Theta Healing. During the Advanced Theta Healing class, the arthritis in my shoulders completely healed! It was the miracle I had been looking for. And now I’m passionate about helping others heal with this technique.
Great, appreciate you sharing that with us. Before we ask you to share more of your insights, can you take a moment to introduce yourself and how you got to where you are today to our readers
“I’m what you would call a “seeker.” All my life, I’ve sought after truths that are beyond mainstream.
I’ve always been fascinated by the human body and its amazing ability to heal. When I began having symptoms of Celiac Sprue, I remember going to a doctor who asked me how nervous I was. This was back when no one knew anything about gluten, so I began seeking help at natural health food stores. After reading an article about Celiac, I tried the gluten free diet and like magic, all my symptoms cleared up!
I started listening more to my intuition. My family called me a “health nut.” Eventually I became a personal trainer, and then a pilates instructor. I kept acquiring more knowledge about the body and earned my certification as a “Metabolic Nutrition” counselor. People seemed to trust me for advice and would ask me for help with their symptoms or ailments. I always had an answer for them. I didn’t think much of it. It was just natural to know how to help them.
I explored other ways to be healthy like doing QiGong and getting certified in BioEnergy, which is a way to clear and open up the Chakras. So if a pilates client had a pain in their body, I would use my hand to clear it.
I began studying about emotions and their effect on the body. I studied with Herman Mueller, the founder of Psychosomatics and Body Analysis. I studied the Emotion Code and how to clear emotions quickly and easily.
I then began focusing more on energy and vibration and began to study about crystals. Then I studied about vibrations in the environment and earned my certification as a dowser to help clear spaces. Later I got certified in Healing Dowsing and used my dowsing rods to send healing energy to organs, sore throats, headaches and more. And the problems would clear up.
Eventually, because of some shoulder issues I was having, someone referred me to a practitioner of Energy Medicine. I was fascinated with the flow of energy through the meridians, the Radiant Circuits, and the Auric field. I signed up for a 4 month course. I started working on people and clearing up issues. I even helped discover the root cause of a woman’s headaches she had had for 30 years.
I finally found my soul’s purpose with Theta Healing. The arthritis in my shoulders was dramatically healed.
As I look back, everything I’ve studied up to this point has given me an understanding of how the body works and how to witness a healing by the Creator.
Here are a few things that Theta Healing can help you with:
- Clear old programs or negative beliefs that no longer serve you.
- Instill beliefs and programs that benefit and empower you
- Physical pain
- Disease or illness
- Manifesting what you truly desire
I’m eternally grateful to Vianna Stibal for bringing Theta Healing to the world. It’s my purpose to create a space of non-judgment and unconditional love for people to transform their core heart issues in this lifetime so they can align with the heart of their Soul.
Training and knowledge matter of course, but beyond that what do you think matters most in terms of succeeding in your field?
“Having the knowledge and training is one thing. Along with that, you also need passion and a love for what you do. Loving people, having compassion and a desire to help others is the key to succeeding in the healing field.
It’s not about competition or how many connections you have on social media. It’s about sincerity and earning others ‘trust. It’s not about who you know. It’s more about ‘how well you know the people you know.”
Can you tell us about what’s worked well for you in terms of growing your clientele?
“My most effective strategy to grow my clientele is being of service and giving 100% to my clients. I really listen to them and use my intuition to assess their individual needs.
I also bring a joyful heart to everything I do. Most of the time, clients are in pain or hurting emotionally. I let them vent and also help them laugh. Life is supposed to be fun!
And when the client experiences good results, they tell others about me. It’s mostly a referral system that works best for me.”
