FULL MOON SALE!

The Great Compassionate Light

As we move speedily toward the darkest day of the year — the winter solstice, December 21 — with Christmas, Chanukah, and Kwanzaa following shortly, emotions tend to run high. Moods can run quite dark too, with the dimming daylight. Often, people feel depressed at this time of year. Of course, there’s the additional stress of holidays and all the political upheaval going on. But there’s an opportunity to bring in some major Light, calmness, and peace into your life.  How?  One way is by hanging out with the full moon.  The full moon is Thursday, Dec. 12, and its beautiful shining light is a call to our soul to awaken.

*** I’m offering a rare sale of Akashic Record Readings.  For 4 days only, between now and Saturday evening, Dec. 14, you can purchase a one-hour, telephonic or skype, Akashic Record Reading for only $108.  Normally, I charge $140, so it’s a really great discount and my full moon gift to you!  Contact me at paula@fromtheheartcenter.com to purchase a reading. Or call me at 773-791-8425. Remember, the sale is only through Saturday! ****

An Akashic Record Reading is a profound way to shed Light on your most troubling issues, such as:  How to make more money, how to find, recover from, or keep love, how to improve health challenges, how to deal with loved ones, how to move through stuckness, and what is your purpose in this lifetime. The more specific the questions, the better, and nothing is too small to ask.  These are just examples of some of the many issues that are discussed in Akashic Record Readings.

The Akashic Record is a vibrational record of your soul and includes not only this lifetime, but prior ones too.  In a reading, I work with very high-vibrational spirit guides to offer the highest perspective and guidance on life issues.  You ask the questions, and the response that comes through can be remarkably insightful, loving, calming and healing.

If you purchas a reading with this sale, you must pay for it now, but the reading can take place anytime through February 28, 2020.  This can also be given as a gift to someone you think might benefit. I will create a gift certificate. We can all use guidance, healing, and help now and then. Sometimes we need a catalyst for changes we desire to make. An Akashic Record Reading can offer all that.

Now, back to the FULL MOON; When did you last let your gaze linger under the full moon’s spell?  The full moon speaks to that part of us which sleeps in the midst of our busy, frenetic lifestyle. It’s speaks to our inner poet, inner dreamer, inner artist, inner wise one — that silent, knowing witness to this crazy game of life. It reminds us that there is something more…something beyond what we take to be ordinary reality.

My teachers in India have been broadcasting full moon meditations once a month on YouTube, and I’d like to share this opportunity with you.  It’s free and can be a powerful experience. There will be a short, high vibrational talk by an enlightened monk, and then perhaps a viewing of the moon in India, and/or prep to view your own local full moon later in the evening.  This month, you may have to get up early to catch the meditation, depending on your location.  Check out the times and links below. There are two separate timings, and it will be a great, high energy and soulful way to start your day:

What if air were the enemy?

If air is the enemy?

First, please know that this photo of me in the face mask is admittedly intended to get your attention. Since I have an extreme sensitivity to mildew, mold and dust, and the very wet spring and muggy summer in Chicago has spores replicating like crazy, I’ve acquired some mask protection from an allergic onslaught. It happens in a few areas I frequent, like the basement. The good news is that I’m moving in ten days to a new home. Plus the season will change soon and symptoms will abate – allergy suffers can relate, I’m sure.

But what if there were no escape from environmental hazards? What if our air, water, and food no longer nourished our health and well-being? What if the very basics of living became our enemies?

The mask is a handy prop as I write on this rainy afternoon, but the world situation is real and very serious; I’ve been trying to think of a way to illuminate the extreme need for global awakening and motivate some action. Many of us in the consciousness raising movement have been trying, for decades now, to motivate folks to work on their own growth in order to change the world. Global transformation must start within each of us. We have to awaken to greater self-awareness and contribution, in whatever ways we are guided. For each, contribution comes in many forms – including opening your heart to those your presence affects.

Personal growth requires some effort, self-discipline, and even risk, at times. But it’s easy for people to slip into apathy and ennui, to mournfully argue that it’s really all they can do to just basically survive in the chaotic times we’re experiencing. They throw up their hands and ask, “What can I do? The problems are so huge.”

But let’s look within and perhaps get a little more honest.  Externally, there’s the ever present, easy lure of delicious foods, all kinds of entertainment, drinking, drugs, internet, shopping…all those easy escapes that promote passivity regarding the reality we face. Yes, you might get a quick rush from “shopping therapy” or a delicious dessert, but the thrill ends and soon you’re looking for another thrill. Call them cravings, escapes, or call them addictions – they are a roundtrip ticket to inaction.

The words “longing for our heart’s desires” is thrown around lots, including numerous mentions by myself in the history of this blog. But at a certain point, and some of us are already there, what we are going to be longing for is not love, money, rest, or even fulfilling oneself – it’s going to be getting clean air to breath, food that isn’t toxically manufactured, drinking water that isn’t polluted, the sight of a bee or some other endangered species (expected to be going exctinct), a feeling of belonging in your own country, undefiled nature, and, in general, your health & life, as we once knew it. It’s all over the news: global warming, the dangers of electric and magnetic fields (EMF’s), food additives, water contamination, toxic chemicals, nuclear experimentation and threats, the epidemic of cancer, etc. Then we’re also truly at risk of domination by those who thrive on power, greed, and control – those led by ego, not heart. There’s a battle between forces of light and darkness.

This morning as I meditated on a beautiful vision of the world awakening to love and connection, I basked in bliss while also sobbing for the crisis we face; These times are a mind-blowing paradox. The opportunity to experience profound connection to the Universal Divine has never been more available. Awakening is happening all over the world. In spiritual circles, miracles are becoming as common as the sun daily rising. But it’s a reality born from desperate times. To witness the dissolution of life itself is terrifyingly sad. It’s a gift of knowing death more intimately, even as we become more intimately connected with the ecstasy of the present moment.

What can YOU do? What can I do? Here are some suggestions:

1.  Become informed about what’s really going on; Don’t stick your head in the sand. And please vote, when the opportunity arises.

2.  Meditate daily. For real. No excuses. A great app to start you out is the “Insight Timer” with thousands of free guided meditations. There’s also simple breath-watching. Just sit and focus on your breathing. Even doing it for 3 minutes, or better yet 7 minutes daily, makes a difference.

3.  Find your tribe: There are so many low-cost ways to connect with other spiritually attuned people. Check out meditation groups, non-denominational or denominational churches (wherever you’re drawn), 12-step groups, Oneness Phenomenon circles (personal plug), online communities…there are so many free or low-cost offerings! Call me if you need help finding some people you can relate to.  It’s extremely important to overcome any isolation you might be experiencing.

4.  Get connected to your inner Sacred Self and work on a bond with that.  Whether you call it God, the Universe, Spirit, the Divine, Higher Self, Nature….just work on that bond. A deep bond with what is most sacred to you is the miracle you’ve been waiting for. With that bond, a bond of friendship and devotion, you will be guided to what you need, and what you need will be guided to you. You’ll be personally guided as to how you can contribute to the greater good. Opportunities will arise. You’ll help your family – in fact, you’ll be amazed how good things might get. Get in the flow!

5.  Get help if you feel stuck:  There are a plethora of various types of healers, teachers and courses available.  One such course that is now currently being live-streamed once a month from my own teachers in India is called Journey Into Awakening.  It’s a one-day intensive, given in about 50 cities across North America. This month’s specific class, on August 23, is being called “Retreat Into Happiness” and the emphasis will be on awakening to WEALTH. In the Chicago/midwest area, we’re meeting in Wheaton, IL on August 23.  Check out more info and register here: 

https://www.floweringheartcenter.org/journey-into-awakening  The last day for the early-bird discount is Aug. 20, so don’t delay registering.

If you are outside the area, see a list of other cities where this event is taking place on Aug. 23 and consider registering:

https://www.journeyintoawakening.events/

Last month, I was blown away by the shift that came from attending this one-day intensive. I know that time, money, and effort are required to attend, but the benefits are huge. I walked away with profound quieting of mental chatter, a stronger desire, along with creative ideas, to focus on serving others more fully, happiness for no external reasons, and many more of those amazing, instantaneous daily miracles. I’ve felt that every need I have been experiencing has been answered and satisfied quickly. Some people have stepped forward, unexpectedly offering moving help, for instance. Also, unexpected money came to me, intense physical pain (from all the packing!) has disappeared quickly twice, and in general, I’ve felt such a close bond with my beloved Divine, that my heart feels like bursting at times, with love.  And just to top it off, family relationships are warm, supportive, and connected. How good this all feels!

Are you motivated yet? If you want to discuss anything with me, just contact me at paula@fromtheheartcenter.com, and we can connect about your own spiritual journey and how you can be a creator of change.

Many blessings!

On Mothering

In the 25 years of doing shamanic healing, I’ve worked with a great many people who needed to find peace within the relationship with their mother. Whether a mother is alive or deceased, biological mother or adoptive, and whether the child is young or grown-up, the mother-child relationship is a sacred, often complicated quest. I think of it as a long, pivotal journey that impacts most of the other relationships in your life—including your relationship with yourself and your Divine. This is the far-reaching and powerful nature of the mother relationship for all of us children.

For many of my clients, whether or not they have been close to their mother or have felt wounded in childhood by her, the relationship with mother is an issue we generally tackle. People seek help who have had mothers who were insensitive, narcissistic, alcoholic, abusive, neglectful, dependent, abandoning, over-worked, absent, suffocating, loving but exhausted, loving but abused themselves by their husbands, loving but themselves victims of sexual molestation, loving but unconscious, and so many other types of mothers.

I’ve never kept a tally, but I can say that most people I’ve worked with have felt in childhood either a recognized or unrecognized yearning for a closer bond, or have struggled with a need to recover from emotional trauma relating to their mother; or both. Furthermore, even if they were, or were not close, and their mother has passed away, there can be layers of deep, deep grief that need to be honored and integrated. Sometimes we lose soul parts when our mother passes away; sometimes mothers take parts of our soul, and usually energy cords and unhealed connections to mothers limit our happiness and fulfillment, as well.

Did you know that babies in the womb are actually affected by their mother’s emotions?  We’re all born into this unique potential for incredible love, connection, and trust with another human being, our mother, or we take on the potential for lack of attachment, lack of self-respect, feeling unloved, and so sadly, feeling unworthy of love.  Is it a role of the dice or fate that determines the impact our mother has on our lives? 

I believe we choose our mothers prior to incarnation. We choose our lessons, challenges, and opportunities for soul growth.  But when it comes to making peace with whatever motherly patterns we have grappled with from childhood, or even from past lives, the path of acceptance of our mother is really the place we want to land eventually.  With acceptance, our consciousness raises. With acceptance, our heart opens. With acceptance, we move into peace. With peace there is even the ability to love the unlovable, not only in our mothers, but very importantly, in ourselves.

When we talk about love, we talk about a power that imbues the living with life. To love is to be free of the past, to be in the flow of goodness, and to resonate with a vibration so much bigger than the traumas, childhood perceptions, and stories about our mothers that so often we cling to, well-past the onset of adulthood.

As a mother myself, I’ve been blessed by my daughter’s sacred role as my teacher.  Because of her, I’ve wised up and grown up, mainly because she taught me that real love brings up everything that isn’t love. As I raised her, and as I relate with her now, she is my sacred mirror.  I see my own patterns and conditioning. I watch her as she slowly matures into her own adulthood, and see that no matter how I might trigger her, no matter how she may judge me for my unconscious personality patterns, nothing can really change how much I love her.  And hopefully she feels that way about me. I see that same amazing power of love between me and my mother, despite the years of differences, judgments, and distance at times.

I think this Mother’s Day holiday, as mixed as it may be for people depending on their relationships with their mothers or their children, is a great day to take stock of what needs to be honored, what needs to be healed, what old stories need to be seen, and what still needs mothering within one’s self.  Ultimately, we will all benefit by becoming our own gorgeous, all-powerful Divine Mother; She who lives within our precious heart.  In June, we’ll talk about connecting with our inner Divine Father, for he shall have his day too!

To all who are practicing mothering or being mothered, I wish you the blessings of this Mother’s Day. Not the cheery, Hallmark version, but the hot, molten mother-love that rocks this planet and keeps the stars twinkling in the night sky; the Divine Mother known by all her many goddess names in all cultures and spiritual traditions, all over the world.

Honor the Mother Goddess in you, as well as the earth-bound, possibly un-awakened human goddess who you gave birth to you.  Perhaps you’ll see in her the genetic seeds of Gaia, our sacred Mother Earth.  Perhaps you’ll find her potential in Kali, the Hindu goddess of destruction and rebirth, or Hathor, the Egyptian mother goddess of the sky, or Lilith, the Middle Eastern goddess of abundance, or Selene, the ancient Greek goddess of the moon. Look within today, and perhaps you’ll see sacred Mother Mary, or the compassionate Amma, the Hugging Saint, or the beautiful Avatar/Divine Mother Sri Amma, of the Golden Age Movement.

If you’re a mother to another being (doggie mom, kitty mom), mentor, generous donor, volunteer, loving friend, doting grandma, healer, or teacher, know that you embody the power of love, in all its many motherly forms. Happy Mother’s Day! The Divine Mother in me honors the Divine Mother in you.

25th anniversary and my own “Me Too” reflections

Over 32 years ago, I was a young realtor looking for a meaningful way to express my deep desire to raise the consciousness of humanity.  Every part of me passionately felt that as a world culture, we were in the midst of a vast, spiritual drought. We were hugely disconnected from nature, each other, and what was sacred.  There was no part of me, however, that consciously knew  how to specifically contribute to changing the world. In fact, I felt lost and overwhelmed by the enormity of the world’s circumstances and was struggling to fit in to the material world.

My real estate work did not feel fulfilling, and my biological clock was ticking at that time. In my mid-thirties, I got married and had a baby. In becoming a mother, I felt tremendous joy and purpose, but there was still something within, urging me to contribute to raising the consciousness of humanity. I didn’t know what to do with that desire, but Spirit clearly did.

A series of very painful circumstances resulted in the dissolution of my marriage. I became a single mother with a very young child. I could no longer keep a realtor’s chaotic, on-call 24/7, schedule with a small child who needed my consistent availability. I didn’t know what to do and prayed hard for answers about how to make money in a fulfilling and mutually beneficial way for my daughter, myself, and humanity.

One day, the answer came very unexpectedly when I ran into a friend who was starting a massage therapy business. I had dabbled a bit in learning to give massage (had taken a few classes just for fun), and my friend suggested I take formal training to learn to be a massage therapist. I contemplated that and decided it was a good idea because I’d have control of my schedule in a way that could support my daughter’s needs. Besides, I had no idea of what else to do!

From that point on, my career unfolded, naturally, in line with my passion to help others grow in happiness and consciousness. I studied Thai massage and became a massage therapist. I loved it! It opened me to a whole new world as a healer. 25 years ago, I officially named my private practice, “From The Heart Center.”  I also learned many other forms of energy work, including shamanic healing. Heeding a strong inner pull, I studied with various shamans and was able to share the powerful ancient art of shamanic healing with my clients.

Years later, another significant shift took place. After discovering the Oneness Blessing (also called Oneness Deeksha), and traveling to India to study with the founders of it, the opportunity to write a book about the Oneness Blessing fell in my lap. A publisher wanted a book about it; I said “yes” to another long-held dream, to write. I am so incredibly grateful to Spirit and to the publisher for that opportunity to contribute, and for overcoming my fears in order to do it!

In retrospect, I see how my Divine guided me through every step to the work I love and the contribution to raising humanity’s consciousness that I longed to make. I was also naturally led to become a certified holistic health coach, and embraced the joy of helping people sync their their lifestyle and health goals with their spiritual values.

The spiritual path is filled with so much synchronicity and unexpected blessings. Not much in my life has been pre-planned. Sometimes guidance has come as a closed door that forced me to seek out another door to open. I’ve had my share of slammed doors and scary moments, but walking through those open doors have only required taking one baby step after another — in order to arrive at a purpose I never could have planned.  It all starts with a very passionate intention and, clearly, Divine grace. If you reflect on your own life, I’m sure you’ll recall the many synchronicities and miracles that have led you to be who you are now. There is so much for each of us to be grateful for!

To be sure, like so many of you, I’ve had many significant challenges along the way. I’ll continue to write about these in future blogs, in hopes that my experiences shed light on your own. But given the current timeliness, I want to briefly mention my own experiences with sexual violations. I’ve had three “Me Too” moments in earlier years of my career, in which I experienced inappropriate sexual behavior from men, and confronted the perpetrators. In two out of these three cases, when I reported my experiences to some people in pertinent “authority” roles, to my surprise, in each case, over 25 other women came forward and corroborated similar experiences with these men.  I won’t go into details here, but the perpetrators involved suffered big repercussions for their actions. There is great benefit to calling out the truth. I hope that inspires you to share your own voice with the world.

I know these traumatic “Me Too” experiences have made me stronger, more courageous about voicing my truth, and have also enabled me to better assist others in doing the deep work of healing trauma. I am particularly passionate about working with survivors of sexual trauma. I would say that the vast majority of my female clients have had sexual trauma, as well as many men, of course.  Additionally, in working with past lives as well as current lives, it’s clear that we all have numerous kinds of trauma locked in our DNA and energy fields. Trauma can be subtle or very obvious; either way, the affect on our lives can be hugely influential. The shamanic soul retrieval and extraction work I do addresses all kinds of trauma, in order to restore our authentic, empowered wholeness. It helps us to achieve greater clarity, contribution, and love.

I know that there is a beautiful, eternal place of peace, hope, creativity, and love within each of us, that none of these traumatic, earth-bound experiences can destroy. It’s a connection to that sacred place within, an innate, intimate connection, that will bring heaven to earth someday.  All the work I do with clients strengthens that connection. It’s in that connection to our Higher Self that guidance, healing, and miracles occur. It’s very important that we all find this place of safety, joy, wholeness, authenticity and inner peace…and go there daily as much as possible. Ideally, we all will come to live there. There, in conscious awareness of our authentic Self, is the profound power of being present to the “what is” of life. That awareness brings us true inner freedom, greater connection, spiritual growth, and blesses all.

The darkness of the separation of humanity from Source has radically manifested in the external world now. The spiritual blight of lower vibrational consciousness persists, but it’s present right along side with the growing global tide of profound awakening. We can’t help but perceive the gravity of physical reality now, even if we wish it weren’t so, and it’s time to accept and confront the darkness in order to open ourselves to greater Light. We are each being called in individual ways to evolve. As always, it’s an inside job first. Each person’s consciousness, actions, and way of being in the world matters and affects thousands of others, now and in future generations.

As bleak as today’s self-destructive situations seem, there is a tidal wave of being “woke” in the mainstream. We are breaking through deeply entrenched unconsciousness. It takes courage and perseverance. We can’t go back to sleep, though some are clearly trying like heck to maintain the status quo, or even worse.

Being awake to the greater role we play in the transformation of the world requires inner work first, along with grace. We must recognize our hurts and wounds, and take steps to heal them. We must take action where our inner voice guides us, and we must call in help from whatever higher Source is sacred and meaningful to each of us.

I’ve been offering my services, from my heart to yours, for over 25 years, to support you in your quest for healing trauma, taking action, and connecting with whatever Sacred Source you’re called to. A shaman is an intercessor between humans and Spirit; The work I do is always to connect you with what is uniquely sacred to you and support you in moving forward to wherever you’re being called. There is no better time to grow in consciousness and joy. If you’d like to have a complimentary conversation with me to discuss how my services might help you, please do not hesitate to reach out. Contact me at paula@fromtheheartcenter.com or 773-791-8425.

Thank you for being open, for being pulled into awakening awareness, and for spreading the word that that help is available to transform your own life first…and then the world! No matter what is going on in our country and the world, please know that you are being drawn to a state of greater joy, aliveness, and inner peace. Have faith, expect miracles, and remember to take it one step at a time!

GRATITUDE MEDITATION FOR TRANSFORMATION

AkashicrecordconsultDid you know that true gratitude is not an attitude, but a state of consciousness?  That’s what my teachers in the Oneness Phenomenon are saying.  Gratitude for external things like a pay raise or a gift is only fleeting; You may feel grateful in that moment, or even for the entire day…but if someone triggers you or something happens that doesn’t go your way, isn’t it easy to lose that gratitude?  Doesn’t that happen all the time?

On the other hand, real gratitude that comes from deep within, and is not dependent on what is happening in our life, is a state of awareness that we want to embody.  This is the type of gratitude that transforms each of us, and this troubled world we live in.

We’re in a world of tremendous disconnection from our Source, from each other, and from the Earth.  We’re lost and we desperately need to find the way home.  The Oneness Phenomenon path is not the only way to get home, for there are many, many paths to awakening.  However, it’s one that it powerful, easy to access, and definitely transformational.  All these reasons are why I practice Deeksha, teach Deeksha initiation, wrote a book on it, and am continually learning from the teachings.

Oneness University in India, which I’ve written about extensively in my book The Oneness Blessing, has been undergoing some changes in the past year.  The famous avatars who are most known regarding the spreading of the Oneness Phenomenon, Sri Amma and Sri Bhagavan, have turned over the running of Oneness University to their son Krishna ji and his wife, Preetha ji.  Krishna ji, at age 11, was the first person who was able to transmit the energy of the Oneness Deeksha to another person, as the Phenomenon worked directly with him at a very young age. Now Krishna ji is grown and married to a wise, spiritually empowered woman, Preetha ji, and they have a child.

Preetha ji started a center called One World Academy in India some years ago.  She is known in her own right all around the world.  Her recent TEDx talk on how to end stress, unhappiness, and anxiety can be heard HERE. Now, Preetha ji and Krishna ji have merged Oneness University with One World Academy, calling it O&O Academy.  The anchor of the Oneness Phenomenon continues to be the Oneness Temple in India, for it is an incredible, metaphysical portal that sits on one of the most powerful grid lines on the planet, according to my teachers. I’ve personally experienced its transcendent energy and urge anyone who can go to India, to go there and experience it yourself. 

O&O Academy is celebrating what Sri Bhagavan named some years ago, as “Gratitude Day” on November 14.  In fact, they are recognizing a “Season of Gratitude” from Nov. 14-23.  Of course the 23rd is our Thanksgiving Day here in the States, so it perfectly fits in this time period.

Today, I’m sharing with you a beautiful meditation created by Preeth ji, which is designed to help move us into a state of true gratitude.  I challenge you to join me in practicing this short meditation daily from Nov. 14-23.  In fact, you may want to continue with it much longer – especially if you are a seeker of permanent consciousness transformation. 

True gratitude is a powerful catalyst for experiencing a love of life.  Gratitude ushers in great inner peace, a deep awareness of interconnection, and a state of Oneness consciousness. Preetha ji and Krishna ji want to start a tidal wave of gratitude all over the world!  Let’s contribute to that!

Will you be part of a global shift?  Do we not need it acutely now?  Please join me in meditating with Preethaji’s Gratitude Meditation – find this meditation HERE  on YouTube.

Please let me know how you like the meditation and its message, and if your internal state begins to change. Perhaps Thanksgiving will be more meaningful than it’s ever been this year – despite what is going on all around us in the world.  That is my hope and faith in our ability to shift the future of our beautiful planet and its abundant expressions of the One.  

 

DATING ROLLBACK!

FreeMeditationLogo    What if you could turn back the clock in your dating and relationship life – in order to be free of the years of disappointments, heartbreaks, projections and fears?  Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have had the wisdom in your younger years that you’re acquiring now in your current awakening self?  Maybe you’ve heard the advice about “letting go” and being “open,” but are you able to practice these things? Or is a part of you shut down or disillusioned about dating and the desire for a fulfilling relationship?

I don’t know if it’s possible to recapture our innocence, but I strongly believe we can regain our trust. How powerful to be able to trust yourself, and to know that some kind of power greater than yourself has your back – and is moving you towards your good, if only you’d allow that!

Would you like to be able to offer another person your authentic vulnerability, trust, natural sexiness, and commitment—the authentic you that existed before you started protecting your heart and disregarding the higher wisdom of your spirit?  What a gift it is to stand in your own truth – to feel empowered, self-confident, and deeply attractive in your openness to love! How freeing would it be to let go of needing a relationship to feel whole? Wouldn’t it be a relief to stop stressing about relationships and simply relax into energetically drawing the perfect relationship to you, in the right time and place?

The problem with having traumatic dating and relationship experiences in the past, is that our egos develop compensating behavior to protect us from possible future harm.  Our perceptions become colored by past hurts.  We hang on to the hurts and armor our hearts to feel safe.  We come up with excuses (too busy, too tired, too stressed) to open up to new encounters and unknown experiences.  We fall into ruts of overthinking and subtle avoidance.  We’d rather just deal with the devil we know…for without venturing outside our comfort zone, we may just attract the same old type of relationship with a different face, but a frustrating familiarity.

You can break through this self-sabotage. Dating and sexuality is an inside job;  If you are a single woman and are looking for group support to break through your internal barriers to love – then I have some upcoming classes for you!  (Men and committed women, sorry!  There will be other forthcoming classes for you in the future…)

I will be teaching an experiential in-person workshop, along with a virtual course series, with my collaborator in empowerment, Sue DeSanto, LCSW, a Clinical Social Worker and Relationship Coach. We are going to be using energy tools to actually shift your vibration and bring you back to center…to rollback patterns so you can truly ignite love from within.  You can take the in-person workshop if you’re in the Chicagoland area or just take the virtual course if you’re outside the area.  I especially encourage you to sign up for both, if possible!

What’s included in these classes:

Meditation, guided imagery, holistic coaching, Deeksha, essential oils, and the powerful tool of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique, also called Tapping).  Together, Sue and I have over 44 years of experience.  Add that to the power of working in a group on shared goals!  Group support exponentially affects positive outcomes.  Nothing moves mountains like feeling supported, and Sue and I will be joyfully bringing our experience and spiritual gifts to support your transformation.

So if you want to start the new year empowered, sexy, and clear from the inside out, then please join us.  There is a big early-registration discount of $30, and a free gift, if you sign up for the entire package – the in-person workshop plus the 4-week virtual series.  Here is a summary of the class events and pricing, along with the registration links:
