An Emotion Code client
I could write a book about Cornelia and her amazing gifts of healing. I have experienced her work with Barbara Brennan’s Healing Hands of Light. I took classes in Soaring Crane Qi-Gong that Cornelia led for teachers at our school, a very restorative practice for teachers at the end of the school day. I have followed Cornelia’s development as a healer through the years and she has always made her skills available to me at crucial times in my life.
My most recent experience with Cornelia involved her skill as an Emotion Code practitioner. This past summer, I had the opportunity to travel to Europe with a friend doing doctoral research related to the Reformation and its effect on the liturgical music of the period. I have some knowledge of German and could be helpful in that regard. At the last minute I thought I couldn’t possibly go because of the amount of walking the trip would entail. I was experiencing severe hip pain from a torn labrum and walking was very difficult for me. My husband said, “Call Cornelia.” I was leaving in just a few days and thought that would not be possible, nor fair, to ask for her help in such a short time. But my husband prevailed, so I called her. I didn’t have the time to make the trip from theJersey shore to her home in upstate NY, so I thought it would not be possible for her to help me. However, when I told her the situation she simply said, “We can do this! I will be your surrogate and we can do the Emotion Code Protocol over the phone.” We spent an hour or so on the phone and my pain was completely gone. I traveled to Germany and climbed many steps up and down Wartburg Castle, stood for hours in Museums while my friend searched documents and conversed with docents and negotiated airports and long walks in cemeteries looking for musicians’ tombs. I walked all over Weimar and Leipzig visiting Bach’s earliest churches. I had no pain. By the way, I am 79 years old.
I would recommend the Emotion Code Protocol to anyone experiencing physical pain and certainly would recommend Cornelia as a gifted practitioner of this mode of healing.
A student of Soaring Crane Qigong
I have been dealing with Late Stage Neurological Lyme along with several debilitating co-infections for the past two years. I started studying with Cornelia Wathen in the Fall of 2010. Soaring Crane Qi Gong was the only movement that didn’t make my pain worse and gave me some relief. I finally started my own personal practice of the Five Routines in the Spring of 2011 when I realized that this was a way for me to play an active role in healing. Much more recovered due to an excellent homeopathic regimen, I found that doing the five routines twice a day at noon and five pm made the unbearable days that much more bearable. As an artist, I work intensely with my hands. Due to painful joints associated with Lyme, I find that working for long periods of time is not possible. However, if I do 25 minutes of Qi Gong after a few hours of work, the pain in my wrists is alleviated and I’m able to return to my task again. Soaring Crane also boosts my energy, calms my nerves and reconnects me to my core self, and the world around me. Through this, emotional difficulty eases into a sense of patience and acceptance. And the fogginess associated with Lyme is abated. People always comment that I look healthier and that my eyes are brighter after I’ve finished the routines. I have researched and tried different movement practices throughout my illness and this practice has been the primary one that has helped me. I know that we each have to discover for ourselves what is right for our physical well-being. The work I’ve learned from Cornelia has allowed me to play a powerful role in my own healing process.

I personally have experienced Cornelia’s gifts of healing on three levels: physical, emotional and spiritual. The beauty of her work reflects the purest of intent to serve and give generously of her love, which radiates from her huge heart. Her commitment, integrity, support and care for me, in her work with me, has affected the quality of my life. The effects of our work together have helped me in ways that have “no words.”

A Student of Soaring Crane Qigong
Cornelia Wathen taught Qigong to me a number of years ago. Cornelia trained under Master Zhou in the Soaring Crane style of Qigong. This is both a gentle, flowing physical exercise and a powerful, relaxing meditative practice. Cornelia has been both a teacher and student of energy healing modalities for many years and she brings all of her experience in these areas together in the class to make learning Qigong a pleasure. Qigong is complex and involves detailed specific movements and positions. Cornelia organized the classes so that we learned easily mastered sections which we practiced separately before combining them into the completed form. Keeping the class size small allowed Cornelia to spend time with each of us until we all “got it”. One of the great benefits of Cornelia’s class was the group sense that developed. We continued to get together to do Qigong as a practice for years. (I miss that)

One of the most remarkable people that I’ve ever been acquainted with is Cornelia Wathen, and for so many reasons. Even the way we met was extraordinary.
In the spring of 1991 I was in a most difficult situation. I was having waking dreams, or conscious recollections of numerous scenarios that were violent and emotionally upsetting. I now believe that these were repressed memories of unresolved past life experiences. Before this experience with Cornelia I had never been curious about or explored past life possibilities, and I think they came up simply because through Cornelia the stars became aligned. It was frightening to be feeling the way that I was, and I had no idea what to do about these huge emotions that ran so deeply and surfaced frequently to disturb my peace and sleep during the twilight hours. I was simultaneously having eye trouble that five specialists couldn’t determine the cause of after I had submitted to every test known to “modern” medicine. Enter Cornelia.
A Barbara Brennan graduate list “fell into my lap,” and I opened it to a random page somewhere in the middle, saw Cornelia’s name, called and made an appointment for the next day. My very first impression of Cornelia was simply that I loved her. We talked for an hour, and then she had me on her table for a healing. I had intense sensations of white light in the areas where her hands were near me. I also felt very strongly the presence of another person – a male, who was there for and with Cornelia, and I somehow knew that he had been in her life for a very long time. (I felt his presence during future healings as well.) This one hour session left Cornelia looking like she had been jogging! I, on the other hand, felt invigorated, protected, strong, and clear. Glowing with peace and love. This session resolved my fear that things were hopeless and out of control. Within 48 hours the eye problem vanished forever, and the newfound strength that I discovered within has never left me. (I must confess that I created the eye problems myself, because “I didn’t want to see!”) Although it took about two years to work through all of it, I never felt that the process was more than I could handle, and often spent months digesting and decompressing from a session.
As a matter of fact, every healing session that I had with Cornelia resulted in a permanent issue of mine being resolved. Something always shifted, and the world around me responded to the lighter being that I was becoming. The effective way that Cornelia channels love (or whatever it is that she does) has made an astonishing and tremendous difference in my life.
Together, we released one issue at a time. Over a period of twenty months different physical pains which started in the mid-region of my spine, and progressively moved up, became lifted, or cleared and resolved as I consciously experienced the emotional issues that were absolutely linked to the pains during the healings,. The particular body areas that were giving me the physical pains actually harbored the memories that related to the emotional experiences I was holding on to. The memories were vivid and my mind opened to them the same way we think of any special memory in the past…. I was not Heidi, (but it was me) I had different names, knew other families and understood a different language on two occasions. The sensory details were crystal clear; the smell of the earth, the way different textiles felt on my skin and the emotions in my heart. I know the details of those lives, and understand more about who I am today because of them. Cornelia’s presence provided the safe environment for me to let go of lifetimes of loss and fear of separating from my physical body before death.
I believe that there was somehow a transformation or lifting that Cornelia made possible, but I do not understand how she does this. She gave me the courage to go on, and the faith that it would be over. Everything that she has ever said to me rings true with my heart – She gave me so much light, so much strength that it was truly miraculous. One of the greatest gifts that I have ever had was to find her, because she has made it possible for me to accomplish so much more with my life than I would have otherwise. I do believe that Cornelia is an angel.
