Life Coaching

A life coach is the modern version of a sage, a wisdom keeper who is characterized by their prudence and good judgment and can help you see things from new perspectives and new horizons. Coaching is about having someone believe in you and encourage you to live your greatest potential. The path to enlightenment is a sacred journey and having guidance can make a difference in the implementation of the next steps and be a smoother and more effective process with someone who has taken the journey before us and who can help to lead the way.

Spiritual Emergencies

The term “spiritual emergency” was coined by Stan and Christina Grof with the intention of making the distinction between transformative states of non-ordinary reality and psychosis. Other terms such as “the dark night of the soul” or “shamanic initiation” have been used to describe this state of being when a person’s belief systems are shattered and they lose their connection to a past reality. Western Psychiatry can miss the ancient knowledge of this process and patients end up hospitalized when in reality they can be experiencing a time of transformation or “spiritual awakening”. Practitioners with experience in this can be very helpful on the souls journey into a period of personal initiation without the traditional long term use of anti-psychotic drugs.

Grief Counseling

Losing someone can be the most devastating event in our lives. The separation of the soul and the journey to the other dimension brings with it an enormous pain and suffering for those left behind. Many times there are things that are left unsaid, other times just the knowing that the soul has arrived and is in the gentle arms of other loving souls can bring peace and tranquility. It often seems impossible to move forward as the vacuum of space that is left behind is so expansive yet understanding the journey of the soul and the continuity to our existence can soften the pain of a broken heart. Going it alone can be overwhelming as others do not understand the depth of the impact of separation. Having a person with knowledge of transition and answers to the subsequent questions that remain can help to bridge the gap to finding peace in the midst of extreme sadness. Here you will find support to take the next steps and rebuild a life around the amazing YOU. If you have been a caregiver, lessons in how to take care of yourself and focus on becoming your own best friend again is a noble journey to the beauty inside of all of us who have cared for others on their passage to the “other side”.

Business Intuitive Counseling

I began to realize that an intuitive understanding and consciousness was more significant than abstract thinking and intellectual logical analysis, intuition is a very powerful thing, more powerful than intellect” – Steve Jobs

Intuition is a process that gives us the ability to know something directly without analytic reasoning, bridging the gap between the conscious and non conscious parts of our mind, and between instinct and reason. In essence, we need both instinct and reason to make the best possible decisions for ourselves and our jobs and businesses. There is no need to reject scientific logic in order to benefit from instinct.Until about a hundred years ago science wasn’t even aware of the role of our unconscious, but studies now show that only 20 percent of the brain’s gray matter is dedicated to conscious thoughts, while 80 percent is dedicated to non-conscious thoughts. Businesses everyday are realizing the importance of this 80% in achieving an edge in legal matters, competition, strategic planning, human resources and all aspects of business that require insightful decisions be made. Working with an experienced intuitive with practical knowledge of the business world can be an important advantage and open the door to an expanded point of view that takes into account the power of instinctual and spiritual cognizance.

Relationships

The intuitive world realizes that there is a predetermined plan to meet the people in our lives in order to share experiences that are part of our karmic path. Our incarnation often involves the learning of lessons and relationships are the most challenging form of learning. Whether it be parents, lovers, children or others in our lives we reach higher levels of enlightenment because of these connections.

Many relationships struggle at the foundation when the subconscious is ignored and the mind engages in destructive behaviors of jealously, blame, control, possessiveness and judgement because we do not remember our purpose. Seeking guidance in understanding others and ourselves through unconditional love can shift us to attain awareness of our proper role in relationships and get them back to balance so that they can thrive.

Trauma Counseling

PTSD and Depression is reaching epidemic proportions as we struggle to manage an ever-changing environment. Trauma can leave deep-seeded wounds in the energetic system of the body, it can also have links to patterns from past-lives. Taking a spiritual approach to healing from trauma is a journey into oneself for inner reflection. A return to the source of the trauma and the dismantling of learned behavior can lead to positive results. By learning the higher consciousness of enlightened teachings these can be incorporated into a daily routine and be absorbed into your true nature. The heart knows where the wisdom exists so it often just takes a remembering to spark the re-connection to all things that heal the heart and soul.

SHAMANIC SERVICES

Shamanism is the oldest spiritual practice known to humankind and has a presence in nearly all cultures around the globe. A shaman is a person who interacts directly with spirits to address illness and depression. The tools they use for healing include soul retrieval, restoration of the power animal, divination, extraction and helping the soul of deceased persons cross over. In tribal communities, shamans have taken on many roles such as healers, doctors, priests, psychotherapist and mystics. Knowledge comes from doing and practicing and many have learned the craft through oral traditions from mentors and other seasoned shamans. These practitioners can see what others cannot as they are able to transcend space and time bridging the outer world with the inner being. Shamanism is a very natural and holistic practice that can better your understanding of your own physical, mental and spiritual abilities. With an experienced shamanic practitioner such as myself,  you will find energy medicine protocols that expand the opportunity for healing the body, mind and spirit.

Shamanic Healing

Shamanic practitioners use mystical techniques to identify illnesses and then work on clearing blockages in the body’s chakra systems. Restoring the energetic flow will bring power back to a client who is suffering from an illness.

There are many techniques used from the vast number of cultures who have used this practice to repair the energetic imbalance of body mind and spirit. At times disease and other maladies can be seen through this spiritual method and it can be a call to action to seek traditional medical tests or advice.

On the mental side, the disconnect between mind and body can be a serious issue without unraveling the destructive thoughts and resulting behaviors that have created the incongruence. Bringing to the surface these intrusions on the energetic field can be a helpful resource in clearing and healing.

Soul Retrieval

This practice involves reclaiming a piece of the soul that has been lost due to a trauma. Many of life’s traumas can cause soul loss such as sexual and verbal abuse, an accident, being in a war, being a victim of a violent crime, being involved in a natural disaster, surgery, addiction, divorce or death of a loved one. Any event that causes shock and trauma could cause soul loss. The loss of the soul is not a bad thing, it is the natural process the soul engages in to survive the pain and suffering. Shamanic practitioners believe that a fragmented soul can be the cause of disease and illness. With this process of reintegration of the soul into the body it is possible to align the client’s energies back to a wholeness so that healing can begin.
