Since childhood, she has been looking for a method of self-discovery that might lead to the revelation of the meaning of life. She used to see spiritual entities which made her uncomfortable. She has read books on psychology and metaphysics, and has visited many kinds of churches and temples, including Christian, Buddhist and Shinto.
She was raised by abusive parents, and didn’t have any friends with whom she could share her feelings. She was lonely and scared, and lived in a dark hole for a long time. After having graduated college, she traveled to Asia, Australia, Europe, and America, in the hopes of discovering herself and the purpose of her life.
She decided to stay in New York because she felt at home there. She prayed every day for help remaining here, if it was her destiny to do so. It took her several years to get a green card, but finally she was able to live in New York officially.
She hadn’t joined an organized religion when she lived in Japan; however, she converted to two religions in New York: Christianity and Buddhism. After thirteen years in these religions, she was sick of their political games in the church and the temple. She found out that her personal goals in life were not being met in these organized religions. She was not satisfied with them, and started to look elsewhere for spiritual growth.
She feels that God had wanted her to experience these organized religions before leading her to discover her true method of spirituality: hypnosis.
She attended a continuing education hypnosis workshop in the small town in which she was living. She didn’t exactly know what hypnosis was, but the brochure made it seem attractive, and she decided to try the class.
During the first class, the teacher was giving a demonstration and needed a volunteer. She was picked and he led her in hypnosis session.
This session changed her life totally. Her poor self- esteem changed to the healthy one and she really could accept herself as she is. This was a huge turning point for her and since after that she finally could start her unique original life.
She has been looking for the method to know her and to reach into her soul. And she found it. She was so glad and she wanted to use hypnosis to save the other people, too. This was the reason her to start studying hypnosis and became a hypnotist.
