The Journey to Stillpoint

by Boyd Martin

Kathee Estey, Certified Intuitive HealerKathee Estey's life changed so completely, she ended up doing something she never dreamed she'd be doing...and it is the most rewarding experience of her life.

"I was a Treasurer of a large rural school district in Idaho," recounts Kathee. "Had to deal with over 200 people, a multi-million dollar budget. Everything had to be black and white and balanced--perfectly done and ahead of time. Little did I know then that 20 years later and 3,000 miles away I'd be a Certified Intuitive Healer. Wow."

That initial contact with what was to be her destiny came in the form of a book by Meredith Young-Sowers, Agartha: Journey to the Stars. "It got me thinking about God," says Kathee. It was an opening for her to gain a new perspective in the sometimes irritating and mundane world of big-budget bureaucratic accounting. The contact created a spiritual space for Kathee, and she never forgot it.

Fast forward 20 years, and Kathee had returned to her native Cape Cod. When she went to Dorothy McDermott, an EMF Balancing [INFO] Practitioner, for energy work, Kathee heard about the Stillpoint School founded by Meredith Young-Sowers. "On hearing Meredith's name after 20 years, it acted like an instant trigger to me. I knew I was going to go to that school," says Kathee. In fact, both Dorothy and Kathee attended Stillpoint together.

Fast forward again one year, and Kathee had become a Certified Intuitive Healer, Holistic Healing Coach and trained Spiritual Mentor in the Stillpoint system. Adding to this course of study, Kathee also trained in Reiki which she uses to complement and amplify her Stillpoint work.

As Kathee builds her practice, her clients find her through word of mouth. Kathee then does an energy evaluation, analyzing the energy flows through each of the major centers, "because each has a story to tell," relates Kathee. "I sense the health of each region, check the major systems of the body, then I interpret the information present in the energy field to determine, at the deepest level, how a person feels about their life, specific relationships and their influence on well-being--the issues that are having an impact on a person's life."

Kathee then gives an hour-long phone consultation presenting her findings and analysis. Discussion with the client follows, and specific spiritual practices are arrived at for incorporation into a holistic treatment plan. Each treatment plan is specific to the needs of each client, but are drawn from several standard practices developed by Stillpoint. Kathee points out one useful technique, especially during times of stress or pain. "You can get in touch with the still point, or God connection for healing by putting your hand over your heart. It will calm immediately. Also, with pain, hold one hand over the heart and the other over the area of pain."

Kathee stresses that so many of us use our emotional energy to beat ourselves up rather than using that energy to heal ourselves and others. Kathee says she likes to say that Stillpoint offers "new tools for healing our wounded places."

On the Stillpoint website, Meredith Young-Sowers lays out the philosophy of Stillpoint:

  • Our best qualities, our most tender feelings, our noblest visions, are manifestations of God and Love. Our true life and ultimate power spring from the realization that God and Love make us, are us. Our gravitation towards earthly love relationships reflects our continuous urge to connect with the God/Love that forms us. The more we love and accept ourselves, the more we can love others, and the more closely we can connect with a power strong enough to heal us body and soul. God is up close and personal, a source of encouragement, reality, joy and healing.
  • Meredith started the Stillpoint School of Advanced Energy Healing to teach others the advanced techniques she developed to sense, interpret, move and balance energy in the body for healing, the "how" of healing; and also to demonstrate that the God = Love equation is the "why," the fundamental truth and the prerequisite of healing.
  • As Kathee grows her practice in the Cape Cod Area, she sees the world changing. "People are going to the library and books are just falling into their hands," she says, and feels that we can all grow, if we remember that we do not have a soul inside us, but that we are inside our soul, walking around touching other souls. Kathee says she thinks of this connection we all have when life's irritations and upsets rear up to be resolved. An advocate of James Twyman, Kathee sees peace possible in the world, but "the definition of 'I' needs to be expanded to include everyone."
