Healer off to 'help masses'
North Taranaki-based healer Heather Ellis is putting her belongings into storage and taking her special skills around the world.
She'll first travel around the country and then to America and England, where she's already booked sessions.
"I'm stepping into my purpose of helping many people," she says. "I'm going to help the masses. I'm going to stand up there and go, ‘all is well'."
Heather's extraordinary story began several years ago when she died for four minutes on the operating table after suffering a brain aneurism.
While dead she claimed she met an entity that gave her the spiritual gifts necessary to heal people and a message to be shared with everyone.
"I think it's just being able to accept that we're all flawed but at the same time we're fabulous," she says.
The gift she was given, she says, enables her to see a person's aura and where the body's energies are not flowing as they should.
Without touching patients she can work on blockages and thus, she claims, help a person heal from physical, mental and spiritual illnesses.
In February this year she shared her story with Midweek and was astounded by the response.
"Within the first day I received 54 emails worldwide," she said. "That article launched me into incredible people worldwide that were needing someone to be able to help them."
Since the article was run Heather has revisited Christchurch where her life-changing experiences occurred.
She believes this unblocked her powers and now she is able to do "mass healings" and even help people around the world via Skype.
"I had to go back to be able to go forward," she said. "When I came through that it was like the whole universe opened up and put in place my desires, my dreams, my goals."
She has been approached by several film and documentary producers who will take different aspects of her story to share with the world.
And she's about to release her book, Annie and the Electric Fence, which is about her experiences and brain injury.
