I have always wondered, ‘”who am I” and “why am I here?”  In my search for ME, I discovered many things. I am a “touchy feely person” I love to hug people and connect with them.  I love to laugh and make people laugh and help feel good about themselves. Happiness gives us a certain burst of energy which glows and buzzes and grows!  That increased energy is exhilarating and contagious.

The healing principle is within man himself. Man’s power to heal himself, or extend his healing power to others, is measured by his awareness of God in him.
— Walter Russell

My name is Mary E Gates and I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother and grandmother. As a many “generation native Southern Californian”, I have been blessed to live by both ocean and mountains.  Mother Earth has generously provided me with many shells and rocks of which I have always loved to collect. The lovely rocks and shells find me and allow me to bring them home with me, I do not find them. At this time I did not know of their incredible healing energy, I just knew I loved the “feel” of them in my hands.

 From childhood, to marriage and motherhood, then grand motherhood, I have been the “fixer of the hurts and the giver of advice” to my family and friends hence, the path of a “healer” which I did not realize at that time.   As I went from job to job, learning more about life, I would ask that question, “Who am I?”  Those various jobs I gratefully had were all learning experiences for me but something was still missing. That little voice in me would ask, “Is your heart singing yet?” my answer was always NO!

Angels have always interested me and I just “feel” that they are around me, I never felt “alone”. Many years ago I started reading Doreen Virtue’s books and realized another discovery of myself which is, I am an intuitive, as in clairvoyant, clairsentience and claircognizance. I can see visions, feel energy and know spiritual truth. In working with my angels I have been able to develop these skills. Since they do guide me, my healing name is; Divine Healing with Mary. The angels have led me to many “like- minded” people, research sights and an education in crystals, learning their properties of healing. All those rocks that have found their way to me were now letting me get to know them.

A very dear friend of mine gave me the Passion Test, a skill developed by Janet and Chris Attwood and she has a book of that same title. This “test” allows one to find their passion and follow their heart. When I took this test several years ago it “knocked my socks off;” having that blissful moment of pure joy, “oh I know what I want to do now and yes my heart is singing now!” I was then guided to research various Schools that have courses in Crystal Therapy. The Reiki School of Blessing had a wonderful on- line course that allowed me to continue my “day job” and yet have the time to do this class. I loved every minute of learning about the healing abilities of the crystals, and then received upon completion of my course a Practitioners Certificate.  With all the angels by my side supporting me, I am knowing the crystals’ healing properties and where to place each crystal for the best healing of each person.  I then continued my studies of the angels with a course called Healing with the Archangels, taught by Elmarie Schwartz, and I received a Practitioners Certificate of completion.

The beautiful energy that emanates from each crystal opens all of our chakras. When our chakras are open we are much healthier, and our vision is much clearer. Archangel Raphael is the Healing Angel, and I am his conduit; his student. I am always learning and receiving knowledge. Archangel Raphael’s loving emerald green healing energy heals all. Energy knows no boundaries, which allows one to send energy remotely to anyone in all areas.   Crystal and Angel Therapy are my passions and I became a practitioner when coming to this realization that this is my life purpose to heal and serve others, being, Divinely guided.  As you were Divinely guided to my website, thank you for visiting!
