Back by popular demand! Healer, known for successful group and individual healings, will tell about his NDE and do an extensive group healing.
Thomas Gates was born in Texas in 1950 and was the fourth of five
children. He grew up in the rural countryside not far from Dallas, where
he and his brothers and sisters attended Catholic school. His father was
a fireman, and his loving mother was a homemaker and the quiet spiritual
leader of the family. At the age of twelve he began working as a
professional musician and soon became an accomplished drummer.
<P> He spent much of his childhood playing in the woods, observing the stars, the sky, the trees, the animals, the changing of seasons, and the effortless flow of natures way. As a result he sensed that there must be one simple and powerful essence sustaining all this incredibly diverse creation. <P> Then, shortly before his twenty-second birthday, Thomas learned Transcendental Meditation. This brought the experience of the underlying wholeness of all creation and confirmed his sense of what had been occurring in nature all along. This euphoria lasted about one week when he suddenly found himself being rushed to the hospital with a case of appendicitis. <P> Thomas found himself in what appeared to be a losing battle for his life. Soon after the surgery, he heard the doctors announce to his father, "We're sorry. We've done everything we can. You should know that he might not mike it." Within moments Thomas began an amazing and graceful journey all the way through and beyond the "light" to the underlying, eternal source of his own existence and that of all creation. <P> As the universe began to unfold before him, he experienced and understood many things about our creation. He encountered a magnificent golden light and was completely absorbed by its powerful, healing warmth. The greatest gift was the confirmation that we are all eternal and inseparable from our source, from one another, or from any other particle of the universe. This experience forever changed his perception and understanding of life as he began a new journey back into the realm of human existence. <P> As he began to share his story with others, walking them through the journey, Thomas became aware that there appeared to be some subtle healing value experienced by those with whom he shared. It seems to bring a greater sense of peace and increasing freedom from some underlying fears without specifically addressing any particular fears. Fear is an illusion created by the belief and the resulting experience that we are separate from the source of our whole ness and its presence in all points of creation. With the spontaneous collapse of fear more wholeness is revealed. This can bring into our lives more than just the memory of who we really are but, in fact, the experience of who we really are. <P> Thomas was given the gift to draw from that same brilliant, golden light he had encountered in his journey which brings spectrums that enliven the bodys natural physical and emotional healing process. The spectrums not only facilitate pain relief but also help release the underlying remnants of trauma in the physiology that give rise to physical and emotional dysfunction. <P> "Thomas Gates is an exceptional speaker with an extraordinary message. The story of his profound near-death experience conveys a deep sense of peace and an understanding of the eternal connection that we all have to one another." --Loni Parrott, Founder and Facilitator, Iowa City, IA IANDS <P> "I had just hurt my ankle and was limping badly when I had a session with Thomas. I immediately began to feel heat in the ankle and then a soothing coolness as the pain disappeared. After the session I stood up and walked without any pain whatsoever. I never had a problem with it again." --MM, Fairfield, IA, Consultant <P>Further information can be obtained from [ *www.destinationwholeness.com*] </P></P></P></P></P></P></P></P></P>
