She originally launched her private practice, From The Heart Center, LLC, in 1992. After becoming a certified massage and bodywork therapist, her training continued in 1994 with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies, where she became a shamanic practitioner of the art of Soul Retrieval and Extraction, helping over 1000 people and animals recover from trauma with ancient methods of healing and energy transformation.
As her healing work with body, mind and soul has deepened through the years, Paula continuously added more tools to her practice that awaken consciousness, expand thinking, clear aura energy and open chakras – resulting in healed relationships, greater prosperity, better health, and manifestation of goals. Her most recent discovery was the Oneness Blessing.
In 2011, Paula was powerfully drawn to the Oneness Blessing (also called Deeksha), a transmission of sacred energy that catalyzes consciousness change. She soon became a Deeksha Giver. In 2013, she traveled to Oneness University in India, where she became permanently awakened. Her experience there ignited an even deeper desire to assist in the transformation of world consciousness, and the following year, she returned to Oneness University to become a Certified Oneness Trainer. As a Trainer, she initiates others to become Deeksha Givers, which provides an opportunity to rapidly grow in awareness and happiness, and to help others grow as well.
Paula is also a Certified Intrinsic Coach®, specializing in health and wellness, and a Certified Meditation Instructor. She holds additional certifications in hypnotherapy, aromatherapy, and clairvoyant reading. She graduated with honors from the University of Illinois with a B.A. in English Literature. Her new book, The Oneness Blessing, published by New Page Books,is available now for purchase.
Paula’s home base is Chicago, Illinois. Her practice extends via phone and Skype throughout the United States, Canada, and beyond.
