Today we’d like to introduce you to Heather Parker.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Heather. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I have always been sensitive. I know now that was my intuition, or as I call it – my soul knowing. Like when my Grandma was ill from cancer, I sensed her dying. I was seven years old. I experienced numerous events rooted in feelings throughout my life. My family comes from the generation that did not talk about feelings, or sex, birth or dying for that matter. I had no idea what to do with everything I felt as if hormones and being a teenager aren’t hard enough as it is. I felt angry a lot. I remember in High School, I would retreat to the safety of Victory Outreach and their cozy corner couch. I was accepted. I could breathe. I took a detour from college that led me down a destructive path. Religion, which was not a thing in my family-life, became my thing in college. It saved my life. Literally. In that space, I rid myself of distractions (boyfriends, sex, marijuana, partying, and being selfish). I learned about the world and so much more while I studied to become a Teacher. I went from being on academic probation to graduating on the Dean’s List. (Going to class makes a huge difference!). I found a place to pour out my feelings – in prayer. I learned to be humble (a daily practice). Let’s talk about that for a sec. I am a Leo.
While I am not an astrologer, I am Intuitive and Clair-sentient. I read feelings and energy. Leos are known to be proud, bossy and often obnoxious. Yet humility is spiritual. It encompasses so much of how we BE and how we see ourselves in relation to others. I love equity for that reason. I also love gratitude. My Dad would tell me, “Heather…you got attitude? Get gratitude!” He was right. My attitude is my responsibility. I find a positive attitude takes me so much farther than a stinky one does. I miss my Dad. He was diagnosed with cancer in the same time frame I was offered my first Teaching position with a school district I loved. I intuitively knew my Dad would need my help running his private investigation business. I did not know he would die a few months later, and I would be left holding the bag. I was so mad at him. Yes, I have a degree in Liberal Studies and yes, I am a licensed private investigator in the State of California.
Let me tell you, that path nearly killed me physically and spiritually. Sitting in a car most of the day, serving papers to entitled doctors and unwilling witnesses took a toll on me. My dear friend, Christal, introduced me to personal growth work. Boy, oh boy, did I have an awakening. All of my senses that had been dulled by grief and exhaustion came to life. I learned about energy, its many facets and also about Reiki. I did not jump on the energy healing bandwagon immediately. Yet, as the Universe would have it, a Reiki class was offered near my house. Let me say that not much happens near my house. Can we say synchronicity? Yes! I have been practicing Reiki for nearly five years now! Reiki attunements activate our spiritual gifts. Of course, my intuition opened up and I leaned all the way into it. I founded Soul Knowing Energy Healing in 2016. My work is my passion. It lights me up seeing how interconnected we are, how relevant matters of the heart are, witnessing healing as well as liberation. I love what I do and the many ways I get to support people in their healing and awakening.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I would say some parts of my journey have been unequivocally smooth, while other parts have challenged me to my core. I grew up in Los Angeles County and lived only here up until 2016 when I moved to Atlanta, Georgia. I faced my deepest fears, struggled financially, and also dug in deep to utilize my tools. All of which showed me I am capable of thriving, I am always provided for and things are always working out for me, even when I don’t see it yet! I returned to California in 2018 with my partner by my side. As I learned early on, synchronicity is the Universe saying YES! I have my own massage table for Reiki Sessions and Energy Clearings. I also get to work out of my dear friend Traci’s spa in Burbank (at least pre-COVID). I also worked with my business mentor, in creating coursework providing single Women a 12-week container to deal with what hinders them from love.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
Soul Knowing Energy Healing, my company, is known for energy healing, activating the heart chakra, good vibes, healing from sexual traumas and helping single Women call in love! My core values and who I AM set me apart from others. I am often referred to as Funky Sunshine. I AM Love’s Joy. I am a love bug and a Poet. SKEH Core Values are truth, honor, equity, vulnerability and empowerment. I love being a Reiki Master/Teacher. It is kinda like when someone bakes cookies with love, they taste better! All of the work I do with SKEH is from my heart.
What were you like growing up?
I was terrible. I was cute and sassy. I was talkative. I questioned everything. I loved playing teacher. I would set up all my stuffed animals as if they were in a classroom. I even had a special red pen that my brother’s teacher gave me. I loved the movie Grease and sooo wanted to be Olivia Newton John. I was always pushing the limits. One time, my parents went on a date. I tricked my babysitter into letting me roller skate down the street. Now, listen…those skates had metal wheels. I lived on a street with a major dip. Well, as I skated my happy little rebellious self down the street, I ate it, face first. A neighbor (thankfully) helped me get home. The babysitter got in trouble and I did too. I was grounded for a week. I was also the youngest kid on my block. I looked up to all the older kids who pretended to smoke cigarettes. I played outside a lot. I loved horses and horseback riding. I was in a drill-team in jr. high school. I got to ride in a parade and everything. I played soccer. I played defender and mid-field. I loved music. I had a microphone and a record player. I often pretended I was famous. I did get to dance at the Aloha Bowl (with other high school drill-team and dance teams) and Michael Jackson! I even got to hang out with his dancers. I was only 14. It was pretty awesome.
