Interview with Carol Murto

Tell us more about the Chakra System and how it is related to your work?

The Chakra System is, in its most basic definition, invisible energy centers of the body. The discovery of and history dates back to somewhere around 1500 to 500 BC in India and depending on the source vary between 7 to 12 energy centers. I think one could spend hours reading about and exploring the Chakra system.

That being said, for me, I was familiar with the Chakra system before I began my alternative healing practice – but I didn’t have much interest in it. That is until I began working on a regular basis with my client’s and I saw the chakras. It was my clients who revealed the Chakra system to me and it was the chakras who “spoke” to me by revealing that they are actually adjuncts to the Soul Center, holding information about what is needed for healing the Soul and revealing past life history, among other things.

How are the singing bowl, gong and a drum used in your line of work?

These are medicines in my medicine bag. I want to explain that these medicines (tools) chose me, I didn’t choose them. I was led to each and every single one of these medicines over a course of time, and there are stories for each one – far too detailed to get into here!

That being said, they work with me in my healing work. I will generally use the singing bowl to prepare a client before working on their entire “being”. The gong I use to close the healing – she “seals the deal” – and the drum I frequently use to remove blockages and to ground. I also use the drum in ceremony and to call in the four directions.

Explain to us about the Central Nervous System and how it relates to the Soul Center and the Chakra System.

Again, the chakras are an “adjunct” to the Soul –meaning a lesser energy point, not the same as the Soul, but a part of the Soul nonetheless. I’m going to take directly from my book;

“Because the Soul is pure energy, when its attempts to communicate are restricted, restrained or unreleased the “pain” manifests illness in all forms, again the psychological, mental, physical and spiritual, and this all begins in the Central Nervous System (CNS). This charge of energy travels from the Soul manifested in feelings directly into and through the CNS with the initiating point at the base of the skull; the brain stem, the cerebellum and the cerebrum.”

So the basic concept is, if we are “disconnected” from our feelings we are creating energy blockages in our CNS. This simply results in illness.


Soul Awareness – A Spiritual Awakening to Self-Knowledge and Healing, offers tools that are appropriate for the beginner who is exploring the process of their deeper Spirituality and the function of the Soul as well as individuals who may have been exploring their Soul connection and Spirituality for a life time. “Soul Awareness” offers uncomplicated and easy to use healing tools including; written meditations and pictorial guides. With these tools alone, each individual will develop a deeper sense of self and can begin to experience healing at its deepest level.

In “Soul Awareness”, we discover how the Soul communicates with each individual directly offering us personal direction. It is how we respond to this direction that sets us on the path of our own healing or ill health. In “Soul Awareness” we learn that unless Soul healing takes place we can become ill on all levels; the physical, mental, psychological and Spiritual. It is through our awareness first, that we are able to make a conscious choice about our own healing which ultimately determines our outcome. We also learn that without this healing our own personal journey is not clear. What our purpose is – why we came to this planet in the first place – can become lost in the maze of disconnection and wounding of the Soul. As we first become aware of our Soul – who we truly are – we can then choose our path of healing.

Carol grew up in a small town in Northern Minnesota. At a young age she realized that her family home held spirits. Although a practical child by nature, because she held the gifts of intuition, clairvoyance, psychic and empathic abilities she was open to that which could not be seen or understood by many. After years of living with these spirits Carol chose to communicate with them in an effort to create harmony in the household. Additionally, with these gifts, Carol’s awareness, care and compassion for others was expressed at an early age. People were naturally drawn to her and they consistently opened up their hearts and minds within minutes of meeting. Her experiences with animals - companion or otherwise has been similar to her connection with humans. This has remained true throughout her lifetime.

The experiences of those early years were an indication of what was to come in the future for Carol and they were the first steps in preparation for her healing work.

As an adult, she took employment in a traditional field. After working a number of years for the government, she became seriously physically ill with a diagnosis of systemic lupus. This bodily wake up call led her to seek out alternative forms of healing, and so she began her journey; her journey of self healing and awareness. She developed an understanding of Spirituality and her connection to the Divine. She studied Qi Gong, Quantum Healing and hypnotherapy. She learned in her journey that ultimately it is the Soul itself that plays an integral and undeniable part in our human journey and it is the health of the Soul that directly affects our whole health as human beings.

Carol has been working as an alternative healer for 16 years and has worked with hundreds of client’s and has accumulated as many session letters and testimonials which support and document her healing work. She is the author and teacher of her Soul Awareness Class materials, and has designed, written and constructed her business website. In addition to teaching her Soul Awareness classes and doing her healing work, she holds public healing forums and hosts prayer/healing gatherings. She has also co authored a series of middle grade novels.
