Dreamhealer Essay Contest: How Self-Empowerment and Using My Intentions Have Helped Me

The Power to Heal Ourselves and Our Planet
Written by Elizabeth Rose
Adam McLeod of Dreamhealer, a gifted spiritual teacher and remote healer from Canada’s West Coast teaches people how to heal and collectively harness their intentions for good.  My experience using Adam McLeod’s methods have been magical.  This essay is an expression of gratitude to Mr. McLeod.  His books, videos and seminars have taught me, and countless others, that by following simple techniques of visualization and focused intention, we can effect positive change in the world.

Heal Yourself
I first heard about Adam’s gift from a hypnotherapist in Toronto.  She described a young man known as Adam Dreamhealer who sees auras as holograms that he can physically manipulate to remove any blockages or diseases.  She told me that Adam first healed his mother of debilitating headaches that were a symptom of multiple sclerosis.  Shortly after, he healed famed Rocker Ronny Hawkins who had been suffering from pancreatic cancer.  She said that since then, he has healed thousands.

Everything happens for a reason. Shortly after I learned about Adam Dreamhealer, my health started to fall apart, for no apparent reason.  Regularly, I came down with colds, the flu, and eventually developed a chronic case of asthma.  Even my vision became blurred.  By the end of every day, I would find myself in a state of exhaustion and with my eyes seeing double, sometimes triple.  My doctor tested me for various things and finally suggested that my health deterioration was being caused by allergies.  The doctor said, “The air is so polluted these days that it would be hard to isolate any specific allergen.”  She concluded her comments by saying, “Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do for you.  Remain indoors in air conditioning as much as possible.”

Not satisfied with this diagnosis, I visited a naturopathic doctor who used iridology as one of his diagnostic tools.  The first thing he did was check my blood pressure.  When he studied the reading on the gauge, he asked, “Do you black-out a lot?”  I thought about this for a moment and answered, “No. I do see a lot of stars these days though I always manage to sit down and rest my head on my knees before I actually faint.”  The doctor shook his head saying, “We have some work to do!”

Photographs of my eyes revealed dilated pupils and irises full of irregularities and discolouration.  The naturopathic doctor explained, “Your irises show that you must have a very poor elimination system because your body is filled with toxins.  The toxicity must be breaking down your immune system and causing your frequent illness.  Also, you are suffering from a collapsed adrenal gland.”  He pointed to my dilated pupils saying, “You need adrenalin to focus.  Right now, your pupils cannot close properly because your adrenal gland isn’t working.  That’s why you’re seeing double.”

Since I had just learned about Adam Dreamhealer’s healing ability, I decided to attend one of his upcoming group healing sessions.  Shortly after, seeking a cure, I arrived in a hotel conference room where the session was being held.  As I looked around, I could see a crowd of attendees, including a large number of people with canes, in wheelchairs, and on crutches.  It struck me that this could have been a scene from the Bible!

The wonderful thing about Adam is that he teaches you how to heal yourself.  Therefore, much of the seminar was educational.  Eventually, however, the room was darkened for an actual “healing”.  Adam instructed our packed audience of several hundred people to imagine healing our own particular ailment using his visualization techniques.  In the darkened room, I became intent on healing myself and was quickly engaged in the visualization process.  Since I have a vivid imagination and can be intensely focused, it was easy for me to become completely absorbed by the process.  In my mind, I repeatedly imagined my ailment disappearing and my body being healed.

Caught-up in the process, I had lost track of time when suddenly, it felt as though somebody’s fingers had dug right through my back, deep into where the center of my adrenal gland would be.  If you’ve ever had a knot in your muscle and had someone dig their figures right in the middle of it to relief the stress, you’d understand the feeling.  Except, however, this was far more intense.  My back arched and I yelped out loud. It was very much a physical experience.

It still amazes me today to realize how powerful Adam’s technique is.  At the time, I wondered ‟How can a man standing on stage yards away somehow, metaphysically, reach out and physically impact the exact area that requires healing, in a crowd of several hundred?”

Within a short time after the ‘healing’, my health started to improve.  The asthma disappeared, my immune system strengthened, and my eyesight normalized.  This was astonishing!  When doctors couldn’t figure out the cause of my ailments, never mind the ‘healing’, Adam’s amazing gift seemed miraculous.  That being said, he taught us how to replicate his methods to achieve the same miraculous results.  I was inspired to continue practicing the visualizations that Adam taught us.

Heal Others
By practicing Adam’s techniques, not only can you heal yourself but you can also heal others.  Personally, for example, I have since eliminated people’s migraines in minutes, significantly slowed down a degenerative neurological disease and regulated blood pressure. 

During the summer, I attended a three-day training seminar with a girlfriend.  During one of the breaks, I suggested my friend come to our house for a latté.  While sipping our drinks, we started chatting.  I became concerned when my friend confided to me that she had a serious blood pressure problem.  After giving birth to her daughter three years earlier, she had since been living with dangerously high blood pressure and felt like a ticking time-bomb.  She had tried everything to lower the pressure, but nothing worked and her blood pressure remained high.  Despite her outwardly cheerful attitude, this lovely young woman secretly lived with the fear that she might suddenly die and abandon her three year old daughter.  This was her darkest fear.

For the next two days, throughout the entire conference, I made a point of using Adam Dreamhealer’s visualization techniques to imagine my friend completely healed.  Since I didn’t have a lot of faith in my ability at that point, I didn’t tell her what I was doing.

A week or so after the conference, my friend contacted me.  To my delight, she said, “I can’t believe it!  My blood pressure is normal again!!!” She was amazed, and couldn’t comprehend how this could have happened.  I thought to myself, “Thank you Adam DreamHealer!”

Heal the World
In May 2010, Adam sent out a video to his mailing list asking people to collectively focus their intentions in order to stop the deep sea oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico.  Adam created an organized approach by instructing everyone to focus their intentions at a specific time, 7pm on May 14th, 15th and 16th, and to visualize the images shown on his video.  He asked that we keep these visualizations in our awareness throughout the next few days and longer.  He later issued another video to keep the situation top-of-mind.

Shortly after, on May 16th, I awoke up from a vivid dream.  In the dream, I saw a pair of white human hands cupped together.  The hands opened and tilted forward so that I could see what they were holding.  In the palms of the hands, a small helpless creature was lying on its back, flailing and struggling.  It was a four legged animal, completely covered in shiny black oil, clinging desperately to life.  I watched the poor creature, disoriented and suffocating.  As it continued its struggle, a part of me struggled with it.  Another part of me cried out in pain from the sadness I felt in my heart knowing how greatly it suffered.

The dream told me that the cause and the solution to the Gulf of Mexico oil leak, and all oil leaks, rests in our human hands.  It was a strong message.  I knew that my dream had been a strong directive, so that afternoon, I forwarded Adam’s email to anyone I could think of.  Later, I spent several hours in meditation concentrating on Adam’s visualization to stop the oil flowing in the Gulf of Mexico.

I know that applying intention and mind over matter can work miracles but I suspect a bigger task requires greater time, effort and concentration.  Also, total confidence in our own power to heal assists greatly.  A while back, I saw Adam interviewed on television.  His comment caught my attention when he emphasized that ‘believing’ is not enough to do the job.  A confident level of ‘knowing’ is required.  When the oil leak took longer to stop than we hoped, it made me wonder exactly how many people were able to focus for an extended length of time on stopping the leak.

Adam’s techniques have taught me that we all have enormous power, to both heal and to positively impact everyone and everything around us.  The intense state of concentration that I find myself in while visualizing has improved my power of focus and also sharpened my intuition.

This year, I received the biggest wake-up call of my life when I received a cry of distress from our Planet.  It was a shocking experience to realize that our Earth might have a personality, intelligence, and feelings.  Could she really be suffering because of our human impact?  Have things like oil spills, deforestation, and toxic pollution really hurt the Earth?

Not knowing what else to do, in a panic, I reached out to aboriginal elders, scientists, Adam McLeod, and people who cared about the Earth and our potential plight as human beings.  Adam’s kind reply was both a message of hope and a wake-up call to everyone:

“The more people that think about healing Mother Earth, the more powerful the effect.   Putting that positive intent out there makes it more likely to happen.

My First Nations ancestors understood-
We must forget what we have learned;
And remember what we have forgotten.”


Adam’s teachings have played a role in my waking up, or perhaps remembering, who we really are.  How could we heal others using intention if we were not all spirits? We are all spirits having a human experience.  We are all connected to each other and to Mother Earth.  Adam has shown us that our intentions can heal our bodies, hearts and souls.  Collectively, we can reverse our course and change destructive behaviours or habits into constructive ones and become a global force for good.  As individuals, we have enormous power to breathe new life into our current existence, heal ourselves and the natural world around us that is Mother Earth.  It just takes heightened awareness, concentration, and the power of intention.  Thank you Adam McLeod, for teaching us how to harness the divine power that flows through all of us!

  1. Hi and thank you dear Elizabeth, it’s great of you to let me write/interpret the Dreamhealer Essay in Swedish and then I will also post both versions of your Essay on my new word press account. And thank you for your wonderful comments about my artwork in my guest book on Swedish artists site. Speaking of art – yesterday I got an invitation for a soon upcoming exhibition and I had not been painting anything at all for two months before this morning. So now is the time for me to create art and to translate and write and of course I will meditate a lot as well. I will tap into all of my inner reserves.
    I believe like you that we all – no one will be left alone – are going to make this collective quantum leap in consciousness, but not during the same time I guess! We have all been through so much to get to this point, and even though we may have acquired some scars from the battle, we’re wiser and stronger for it.
    Love ♥ Light ♥ Joy

      Dear Carina,

      Thank you again for your interest in the article! How amazing that you are interested in interpreting it. …On a different note, I just learned of a conference on higher consciousness that looks very interesting. You may be interested because it is taking place in Sweden: http://consciousness.arizona.edu/

      The Monroe Institute is sponsoring and participating in this year’s “Towards a Science of Consciousness” conference, to be held in Stockholm, Sweden, May 2-8, 2011! Toward a Science of Consciousness is an interdisciplinary conference emphasizing broad and rigorous approaches to the study of conscious awareness. Areas of exploration include neuroscience, philosophy, psychology, biology, quantum physics, meditation and altered states, machine consciousness, culture and experiential phenomenology.

      Held annually since 1994, the conference is organized by the Center for Consciousness Studies at the University of Arizona, and alternates yearly between Tucson, Arizona and various locations around the world.

      Light, Love and Joy, Elizabeth Rose
