Rev. Teresa Heupel
I was born and raised on a small grain and beef herd farm in the Midwest northern plains. I grew up learning about my great-grandmother who was a midwife and a healer.
Grandma Moser was a faith healer using herbs, chamomile and other remedies to heal people who came to her. I have heard stories from people in my town about how Grandma Moser helped heal their issue even after they had been to the medical doctors and they couldn’t help them. Realize this is years ago before all of this medical technology came into vogue.
Grandma Moser was especially good at healing skin issues such as ringworm and psoriasis. From all that I have heard about her as she died before I was born, she would put her remedy on the skin, rub on it, pray over it and it would heal.
I believe I received my healing abilities from her and always knew that I could heal but it wasn’t until I was in my mid-forties that I trained in Reiki. When I started laying hands on people it was hard to believe that something that simple could work that powerfully.
As it says in the Bible, “If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” Matthew 21:22. Also Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you do not see.”
I am an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ. Yes, I really did attend seminary for 4 years and received a Master of Divinity with a Counseling Ministry degree.
Reiki is considered spiritual healing so this is what I essentially trained for although I did not know anything about Reiki at the time.
I am also a Shaman – a person who can go into the soul and get the bad things out and get your soul back into wholeness and light and love shines through. Those who have experienced some kind of trauma – sexual, physical, emotional, psychological, PTSD, or any other trauma, this type of treatment also works wonders.
