Burn Off Your Karma: Barriers to Love Class & Oneness Circle

 

journeycircleandmeditation2018 has swooped in like the splendid eagle. Many folks are talking about how different the energy feels this new year. It’s as if Spirit is loudly whispering in our collective ears, “grow, grow!” Can you feel the spiritual support of these challenging times building?  Yes, the external world is as troubled as last year….maybe more so…but internally, the fires of spiritual evolution are raging.  I say, stoke the fire! Let it burn off your karma, your stuckness, your confusion, and your fear!

How’s your love life doing in this first month of the new year?  How are those resolutions going? Perhaps you’re losing steam or even hitting the proverbial brick wall, despite your best intentions.  Well, here’s some “wind under your wings” that you can use to create lofty momentum for your heart-felt intentions to manifest in 2018…

For women who are single or in dating relationships, please join us for a workshop that helps break through the depressing loop of repetitious patterns and blockages in creating the love you want and need in your life. Check out “Overcoming Internal Barriers to Love” workshop on Sunday, Feb. 4, from 2pm-4:30pm in Chicago. Be prepared to ignite your innate capacity for romantic manifestation!

For men and women who want to clear out a bunch of inner conflict, raise their bliss capacity, and feel the peace and joy of Oneness, our monthly Oneness Deeksha Circle is meeting again this Tuesday night from 7:30pm -9pm in Chicago.

And for those who want to get serious about creating lasting lifestyle and spiritual changes in order to get healthier, more energetically balanced, more abundant, vibrant, and focused, please consider exploring private holistic health coaching and shamanic sessions.

I have 24 years of experience being a channel for my client’s spiritual wholeness and healing using the phenomenal, ancient methods of soul retrieval and extraction to address trauma and feeling stuck.

A SCHOLARSHIP OFFER TO INSPIRE ACTION

schedulingyoursessionjpgHAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!  It seems like many of us are hugely relieved that 2017 has finished – I know that I am!  It was a year of trauma and anxiety. And whether you were personally touched by hurricanes, flooding, violence, earthquakes, fires, governmental decisions, “me too”, or not, many are grappling with great amounts of stress now, because we ARE one.

Stress can inspire us to make huge transformations, if we allow it to be our teacher. Our world needs transformation like crazy. But how?  Are you asking yourself, “what can I do?”. Folks tell me they don’t know what to do, or how to begin.

The answer is always “begin with yourself”.  Start with changing what you can change in your own life.  The impact of your own life and consciousness will ripple outward and effect the welfare and consciousness of all. It really does. Start with your spirit and your body, so that body and Spirit align. It’s that alignment that allows the Higher Self to really be empowered to create change.

I have a number of amazing, beloved clients who have been working on their spiritual growth with me for many years.  At some point, it always becomes time to bring the body into the higher vibration that matches the beautiful Spirit. We are here to bring heaven to earth…to infuse the material plane with the light of consciousness. And we must do that through our physical bodies.

Our bodies are so magnificent, so built for endurance and survival, that if we honor them, our bodies can deal with the great vibrations of anxiety and stress floating around now. The body does not lie, and it speaks pretty clearly – you just have to listen. The body responds to high quality food, exercise, nutrition, connection, and sleep with amazing capacity for self-healing and empowerment.

I’d like to challenge you to make this a year of honoring your body, so you can bring it into vibration with your soul. That’s where your essential power lies.

How did the holidays and your body do?  How’s your energy level, your sleep, your mood, your stress?  How are your relationships, your work, your finances?If you’d like to make changes in your lifestyle, abundance, and spirit, I’m passionate about helping people do that. I want to strengthen your voice, your creativity, your love life, your inner peace, and your emotional and physical vitality.

Change requires action;  I think this has got to be a year of action for all of us.  I’d like to offer my support with the many energetic tools for profound spiritual change and lifestyle change that I have acquired.

For me, I am not happy unless I am contributing to change.  That’s just how I’m made. So I’m going to make you an offer that’s a win/win for both of us:

For the people who are committed to impacting the quality of their life by making wise choices, are open to support, are willing to take persistent, progressive baby steps toward achieving their goals, and sign up for a 6-month holistic health coaching program, using phone or skype, I’m going to offer a scholarship of $75 off the cost of the program, whether you pay in full upfront (with the usual $100 discount), or pay monthly. And that means if you pay upfront, you will get a total of $175 off the cost of the program! 

This special offer expires January 9, 2018, so don’t delay! Take action now! Contact me and we’ll set up a phone call to explore your options.

Here’s what a holistic health coaching client who just completed my 6-month coaching program had to say last week:

I met Paula a few years ago at a meditation circle. We would see each other here and there but I did not really know her. At one particular circle earlier this year as we were going around the circle introducing ourselves, Paula mentioned something to the effect that she was among other things a healer and a wellness coach . Something inside of me told me that I was ready for this and that Paula was the person to help me , I am so grateful and happy that I listened .
We started working together, initially on healthy eating habits and choices but also began to go into reasons why I was making these choices. The details are what they are but the path that I am currently on is a gift I could not have envisioned . 
When I started working with Paula on wellness and touching on areas of my life that were difficult to objectively assess, Paula was a safe haven, a caring person who guided me , prodded me and helped me begin to examine and address issues that were deep . 
She was able to help me see things about myself that were not easy to look at. Self-improvement is hard but when someone like Paula is there by your side gently pushing you to explore areas of your life that need work, it makes it easier to move forward. 
I spent 6 months working with Paula and we met every other week (by phone) and I SO looked forward to each session. I have made some changes in my life that were very positive and necessary, I am not finished by any means, but the tools that Paula has given me to move forward is one of the most beautiful gifts I have ever received.”
I hope you give yourself the gift of self-empowerment in 2018. Please contact me at paula@fromtheheartcenter.com or 773-791-8425, if you’d like to set up a complimentary consultation to explore your challenges and the possibilities for creating change in your life…and the world.
And one more action-oriented opportunity for women who are looking for love or in dating relationships:  Have I got a workshop for you!  I’m collaborating with Sue De Santo, a dating coach, to lead a workshop in Chicago called:  Overcoming Internal Barriers to Love, on Sunday, Feb. 4, from 2pm-4:30pm.  
This workshop is for you if you are a woman wanting to let go of the “wounding” of past relationships and feel renewed confidence. We’ll help you identify blocks, fears and stories about the past, and step fully into 2018 to truly “ignite” and attract the kind of love you want.  We’ll be using powerful quantum tools like EFT (Tapping) and Guided Meditation to catalyze change.  For more info and registration, read HERE

 

 

Retrograde Akashic Sale: 3 DAYS ONLY

AkashicrecordconsultCan you feel it? The planet Mercury is going retrograde again, starting Sunday, Dec. 3, and on the same day as a full moon!  I’m not an astrologer, but it sounds like a bit of a wild ride ahead, and I’m feeling the energy already today. Rather wonky! Aside from communication and transportation challenges, Mercury Retrograde periods are known to be very good for looking back at the past, for insights, to contemplate your lessons, and perhaps work on your life or any other things that need tidying up. So, it came to me that it’s the perfect time to throw an Akashic Record Consultation sale!

Maybe you’ve been bombarded, like myself, by showers of emails that are advertising sales going on at this time of year. It’s only Dec. 1, and I’m already feeling like enough is enough.  Literally, I own enough stuff!

But if I can grab your attention, just for a moment, would you be willing to hear more about my sale, because I promise that this one is not about buying “stuff” – it’s about gaining insights, healing, and shifting your energy, by looking deep into the record of your soul.

I’ve been working in the Akashic Recordwith clients for two decades.  The information that comes through me from the Records, is always full of surprises, insights, healing, and comfort, in that the craziness of our lives often actually makes sense. The Records have illustrated, time after time, that our soul is eternal and that we travel in soul groups, rotating roles and relationships in different lifetimes. We travel with our beloveds who are sometimes our parents, children, siblings, wives, husbands, etc. in past lives, for the sake of the soul’s evolution.  Or are they concurrent lives?  Perhaps it’s semantics, because time is said to be an illusion. In any case, relationships in other dimensions of consciousness can be explored through an Akashic Record Consultation!

And speaking of other dimensions, ever wonder if your soul came from outer space thousands of years ago, or if it could possibly be one of your first lifetimes here on earth (why didn’t I get the rule book?) Well, a consultation about your soul may give you some insight on that 🙂

In an Akashic Record Consultation, you will bring all of your questions to the appointment.  I will open your Akashic Record and you’ll ask the questions for an hour. It is an opportunity to ask about the nature and healing of your relationships, your work, your health issues, your money and creativity concerns, your soul’s purpose, origins, and anything else on your mind.

Akashic Readings can be about you, or about your business or project.  Yes, we can open up the Records of your business or project.  Everything that “is” exists dimensionally in consciousness, and those dimensions are conscious, living, evolving energy…and energy can be read.  The Akashic Record is a vibrational record of your soul and all its doings.  It is best not to use The Akashic Record for making predictions, for there is free will in the Record, so your future can change.  However, it can be used to explore, in depth, potential paths or outcomes.  For example, you could ask “If I were to accept this job, what might the results be?”

Or, for example, if you want a relationship and no relationship is appearing, it’s best to ask something like, “What do I need to do or be or know, in order to have the relationship I’m longing for?”

Or if you want more money, or your creativity feels stuck, ask, “What needs to happen to increase my financial (or creative) flow?”  Or, “What is the root of this big problem around money (health, fear, sadness, loss, addiction, etc.) and how can I shift the pattern?”  Actually, in my experience, opening your Akashic Records causes a shift…bringing consciousness to something, changes it.

These are just examples of the many areas for which you can seek guidance and illumination of in the Akashic Records.

Now, about this sale:  AKASHIC RECORD CONSULTATIONS ARE 15% OFF ONLY if purchased from me between NOW and THE FULL MOON this SUNDAY (ends 11:59pm Central Time on Sunday, Dec. 3)….and that’s a great deal!  The appointment can take place over the phone, skype, or in person.  The regular price for a one-hour Akashic Record Consultation is $130 virtually, or $140 in person in my office in Evanston, IL., so the SALE PRICE makes it $110.50 via phone or skype, or $119.00 for in-person. 

So take advantage of this prime Retrograde time to email me between now and Sunday, request and pay for a reading now, by Sunday, and book an appointment for some time in the month of December.  Yes, you can give an Akashic Record Reading as a holiday gift certificate too, and that certificate will be good through March!   Credit cards accepted. Don’t delay!

Looking for love?

photodune-6777212-paradigm-shift--xsAre you wondering why I am presenting a dating, sexuality and empowerment workshop now? The reason isn’t just the “me too” movement…though the timing with that is quite resonant. Having had my own, personal share of inappropriate, offensive, and abusive male harassment, like so many other women, I’ve had to claim my empowerment in a big way after years of suppression, inner conflict, and silence.

I had to wake up first, and realize that I had a voice and a right to boundaries, and that I needed to take a stand on behalf of my inner outrage and that of others who have suffered. In fact, I had to publicly call out a certain teacher I had many years ago, and when I did, about 25 other women came forward with stories of similar inappropriate experiences with him. But the details of that segment of my life is content for a future blog perhaps.

Right now, I want you to know that awakening extends into every corner of our lives, especially in relationships and in self-love. It’s never too late to emerge from the conditioned patterns we were taught by society…or the beliefs about relationships and sexuality, solidified in our childhood and repeating endlessly in later years. It’s those false, limiting beliefs and the subtle, but damaging conditioning that stifles our joy, and keeps us chasing after happiness in the form of external relationships. The truth is, relationships are really an inside job.  Yup, it truly is all about you! Since you can’t change others, the good news is that you can shift your own life, from the inside out.

Through years of dating, sexuality, and relationship turmoil, I learned the hard way that until my sense of worth, inner-knowing, and self-acceptance shifted, I would keep attracting the same type of unfulfilling relationships into my life. All my dating and relationship experiences have revolved around the dance of intimacy and lack there of.  What I took to be the “unavailability” of the other person, was really my own unavailability to myself, due to the cloudy perceptions that entangled my mind. These other people have mirrored to me, my own mental, emotional, and energetic barriers to love.

So as you can tell, this subject matter is close to my heart — and I’m hoping that it will also be calling some of you single women out there too.  I’m collaborating with a very experienced therapist and relationship coach, Sue De Santo, to facilitate both an in-person workshop here in Chicago, and a virtual class series (for out-of-towners and staying cozy-at-home in-towners). This exciting workshop partners energy work with energy psychology to loosen the grip of limiting patterns in order to expand your consciousness around relationships, dating, and sexuality — and change your life.  Do the inner work now and then let 2018 usher in that which your heart desires!

Here are the details and please spread the word if this post finds you happily partnered or married…or if you’re a man (this workshop is for women)….

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:

SAVE THE DATES: Are you relationship-ready for 2018?

FreeMeditationLogoCalling all single women – I’ve got an amazing class coming up to help you shift into a new dating paradigm for 2018. The class is called “Dating, Sexuality & Empowerment”; Since being sexy is an inside job, we’ve got some powerful energy-medicine modalities to transform your dating and romantic experiences from the inside-out!

I’m collaborating in teaching this class with a talented friend of mine who is a psychotherapist and dating coach.  We are going to assist you to shake out your self-limiting dating patterns, release blocked sexual/creative energy and awaken your aura-glow with some magical processes like EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and guided meditation – and much more!

There are two parts to the class, which can be attended separately or together for a double whammy:  First, there is an in-person workshop on Sunday, Nov. 12, from 1:00-3:30pm in Chicago….followed by a 4-part VIRTUAL class series, via teleconference, running on Thursday evenings, November 30 – December 21.

I’ll give you all the juicy details in a few days, so stay tuned and mark your calendars now!

Meanwhile, just a reminder that my special pricing on holistic health coaching is being offered only until November 21, when I graduate with a new certificate in Integrative Nutrition Health Coaching.  After that, the pricing will be going up.  So take advantage of a low coaching rate of only $66.67 per session (for two coaching sessions a month) when you pay in full for a six-month program to transform the way you live and eat.

I’ve noticed that some people are confused about what my holistic health coaching offers, so let me please explain: My holistic coaching offers you support, accountability, information, and my deep, intuitive skills to help you realize your goals.  Goals might be for relationships, spirituality, career, physical activity, how you eat, and anything else concerning you.  We will work together to balance the wholeness of your life!

Our focus may vary from session to session, depending on what concerns and challenges are popping up. This kind of coaching is extremely unique to each individual.  It’s not about self-discipline or denial. It’s about inspiration, natural motivation, and clarity.  The change comes gently over time, due to supportive, insightful discussion,  goal setting, and some spiritual guidance and support. As your life comes into greater balance, your goals begin to be fulfilled.  By strengthening certain aspects of your life – for instance, your social life, or your home environment, or your finances, you might naturally begin moving toward balance in other areas; for example, you work on healing a relationship and find your weight might drop, or your food cravings stop. Your digestive symptoms may improve.  These are examples of the change possible. Various problems stem from physical, mental, and spiritual causes – and we work together on all the levels.

Holistic coaching is a wonderful way to follow up your soul retrievals and Akashic/clairvoyant readings.  I work with my clients to weave together spiritual growth, human dreams and desires, and physical health.  Body, Mind, and Spirit are completely, utterly connected – each aspect powerfully impacting the other two.  Spiritual healing (particularly soul retrieval) plus holistic health coaching brings Body/Mind/Spirit into much greater unity, flow, authenticity, and vitality. Imagine feeling truly empowered:  Waking up each day with inner peace, purpose, connection, creativity, and high energy!

Despite the disasters, despite the politics, despite the uncertainty of these very challenging times – our birthright is eternal peace within, connection to a power greater than ourselves, sweet joy in the moment and intimacy with ourselves and with others.  I can support you with shamanic tools and holistic coaching to ground your life in that sweet spot, so preciously and uniquely your own.

Mad Scientist unleashed

Image: Soul of a womanIn the past eleven months of working on a certificate program in integrative nutrition, I’ve learned something crazy about myself; I’ve now totally unleashed the ‘mad scientist’ within!  I guess she used to be somewhat closeted. Now she’s ridiculously passionate, unabashedly spiritual, loud, and apparently unstoppable in her efforts to get to the root cause of problems and to create change… and now she has many more powerful tools for the health of body, mind, and spirit in her toolbox.

I’ve got one more month of studies until I graduate, and I’m almost obsessed with challenging the status quo of health in America. Frankly, we are a nation surprisingly asleep to the notion of taking control of one’s own, precious body.  After all, we love control in this day and age!  But we’ve lost control of our bodies and, perhaps, haven’t even noticed; it’s all so second nature.  How were we so blinded by the cheap bling of processed foods and sugary drinks? When did we get so busy that we lost our connection to plants, our kitchens and the whole foods of Mother Earth? When did moving our bodies give way to screen gazing, overwork, and fatigue? And why do we wonder why the American soul is gasping under the weight of a major health care crisis?  WE ARE ASLEEP!

In the 24 years of my shamanic healing practice, I have been a warrior for your soul.  I’ve gone to battle with all manner of blocked energies, intrusive beings from other dimensions, lost soul parts, past lives, and that over-arching demon, Stuckness.  And as a Oneness Blessing Giver and Oneness Trainer, I’ve offered my humble services to Spirit to help catalyze your awakening and your heart’s declutching from the mind.  Spirit has kept me focused on the soul, for that’s the breath of life underneath this whole theater of humanity.  I love this spiritual calling and will never stop offering it to others.

Yet, Spirit has spoken to me and sparked in me a bold urge to also fight for the holistic health of this earthly vehicle for the soul…this incredibly brilliant mass of cellular structures which is the Body. Yes, this life is not “it”; our soul is eternal.  But while we are here, what matters most is the QUALITY of this earthly life.  And without a highly functioning body, the quality of one’s life can truly stink.  An unhealthy body creates pain, narrows your life, dims your mind and spirit, sometimes limits your contribution, and can keep you from being your highest self. It’s as plain as that.

For example, without the brain getting proper nutrition, blood flow, and oxygen, and the body getting regular exercise and sleep, you might be ultimately facing dementia or Alzheimers.  Is this how you want to go out? The brain can start deteriorating after age 30! Your memory can start giving you problems after age 50!  I mention this as one who sometimes can’t remember a certain word or someone’s name.  Better believe, I’m now taking steps to support my brain’s health!  Experts say the brain can be as healthy at 90 as it was at 29, if you give it what it needs.

And your gut, if it isn’t lucky enough to avoid gmo’s, processed and sugar-laden food and drinks, viruses like Epstein Barr, yeast, parasites, emotional trauma, and stress, it can fall into a state of dysbiosis – that’s an imbalance of healthy and unhealthy intestinal bacteria.  It’s as common to Americans as rain, and it can lead to bloating, gas, gerd, pain, cognitive dysfunction, and many diseases like Hashimotos, Parkinsons, M.S,, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis and cancer. The gut is 70% of your immune system. How many Americans are aware of this?

These are just two common examples of what the American lifestyle has created.  But the great news is that you can take control of your health and change these sabotaging conditions.  It takes awareness, intentionality, determination, perseverance, and, very importantly, accountability.  It helps when someone holds us to our word, if we can’t hold our self to our own word  — which happens because the mind walks a slippery slope when it comes to long-held habits.  The mind sinks into resistance and sometimes languishes in denial.

For this kind of change in the body’s status quo, one often needs quite a bit of support.  Sad to say, we are also a nation lacking in a lot of emotional support.  Friends and family who could support us are often too busy maneuvering to be ahead of the competition, and to be ahead of Time.  Busy, busy, busy, is what we are.  And with what?  Distractions?  Over-commitment? How often do you feel heard, like someone was really present to what you were saying?

If you made it this far down in my writing, I thank you!  There’s something in you that’s awake or awakening to the need for change.  Perhaps you struggle with procrastination, though you know what you need to do.  You’re human…no judgement. What matters is self-awareness, and taking action as necessary.

Here’s an offer you might want to consider:  You don’t have to do this alone.  You could have a personal, very spiritual, ‘mad scientist’ in your corner to get to the root of things and help you to create the life of your dreams. Nothing feels better than achieving a goal!  I would love to be a help to you, navigating a path that will be unique to you, gently holding you accountable, and always supporting you emotionally.  Because I know that change like this isn’t easy.

I have, and have had, my own struggles with health.  I’ve given up sugar, caffeine, gluten, and dairy to heal this gut of mine. I was diagnosed with uterine cancer several years ago, and pulled out all the stops I knew at the time to heal the imbalances (using prayer, nutrition, emotional and spiritual support, and western medicine) — and was lucky enough that ultimately, when the doc removed my organs, he found no cancer!  That’s right, he actually reversed the original diagnosis of cancer in the medical records!

Was it a miracle? Absolutely yes!!!  But I also worked all the tools I had available at that time. I have even more tools and knowledge now. And now you know why I’ve become a holistic health coach on top of being a spiritual healer. Nothing like a diagnosis of cancer to impassion one.

So if you want a mad, crazy-determined, spiritual scientist to help you, I have a suggestion:

I’m currently running a holistic health coaching special.  I have one more month left of my year-long training. For the month of October, I am offering a truly low, low, low rate for a package of six months of coaching.  Why six months?  Because experts have figured out that people need six months to create lasting lifestyle change. You have to address the root of what’s out of balance. This is why diets and new year’s resolutions generally fail. People try to make radical changes but relapse to old, ingrained habits. What’s needed is holistic change from the inside out – not just in food or exercise, but in relationships, spirituality, career, and general physical activity. Holistic coaching can truly help transform your life.

With this current special, for only $150 a month, you get two (2) one-hour sessions of coaching per each of the six months, plus email support in between as needed. If you pay the six months in full, upfront, I’ll take off another $100.

After I graduate, the price for the package will be going up. The single sessions of life coaching that I have been offering, typically cost $125 an hour….so at the special price of $75 an hour, this is a tremendous value and investment in manifesting your highest potential for body, mind, and spirit.  Please contact me with any questions!  In fact, I’ll give you a free health consultation (no obligation) to get a taste of what I can offer!  So contact me at paula@fromtheheartcenter.com, or call 773-791-8425.  Act now so you can sign up in October and get the discounted rate!

With Love and Blessings!

Pre-summer Energy-clearing Sale!

Hi, are you already galloping toward summertime? I know I am! Here in Chicago we’ve been enjoying weather bliss this week, with lots of sun and nature a’bloom. Hope you had a good Memorial Day weekend.  Now is a perfect time to honor your own inner-soldier.

It feels to some of us that 2017 has been one long battle to maintain inner peace and harmony in a world gone pretty darn crazy and unstable.  Violence, politics, chaos, the environment…hot issues that steal our sense of safety, grounding, connection, and peace.

I’m offering you a chance to quickly reconnect with the “home” within – that place where you can always find refuge, comfort, and connection.  Your Inner Essence at “home” is steady. It is not combative. It knows only one truth, and whether you call that truth Love, Peace, God, Spirit, Higher Self, or Consciousness, its nature is bliss, peace, and higher intelligence. Connecting back to “home” is reconnecting with the beautiful flow of life – of miracles and joy, your birthright.

Connection to our inner “home” can get lost in the shuffle of distractions, stress, other people’s energies, confusion, and collective fear. Even thinking too much, and certain foods and environmental toxins can affect our energy field!  We can become unable, or forget how to find our inner balance and peace. To do that, we need to clear out the energy of blocked and stagnant energies in our field, often caused by not fully processing our feelings or taking on the feelings of others.  The energy of unprocessed feelings and thoughts clog up our aura and chakras, and can lead to disease, pain, emotional triggers, lack of sleep, unhealthy coping mechanisms, and more.  Like a dirty house that needs cleaning, the solution to finding harmony, clarity, and order again is cleaning.  That messiness doesn’t walk away on its own!

So how about an offer you just can’t resist?  Spend 1/2 hour – or one hour with me over the phone, getting all the layers of your aura and chakras quickly cleared out.  You’ll feel lighter, clearer, more energetic, and more present. I’m throwing a sale:  Purchase and book by June 16 an energy clearing session done over the phone (that must be used by June 30) at 40% off the regular price. Good as a gift certificate too!

Half-hour energy clearing will be only $45 (a savings of $30)  or

One-hour energy clearing will be only $75  (a savings of $50)

As an extra gift, I’d like to offer you a Oneness Deeksha at the end of the session, if you’d like a beautiful transmission of sacred energy.

So start getting your summer glow on now. Contact me to make arrangements at paula@fromtheheartcenter.com or call (773)-791-8425.

One last thing, a gentle reminder that the Chicago Phenomenon & Gift weekend is coming here July 1 and 2.  There’s still time to register, but the discount rate for the hotel ends June 9…so don’t delay.  You can register for the weekend and get details on the hotel and pricing HERE.

 

 

Spring has sprouted!

Image: Happy sunHappy Spring! Life is all about cycles, and we’re now officially into a cycle of re-birth and renewal. Spring brings hope with it. I think many of us are struggling with that precious commodity, hope, in these difficult times. Thank goodness nature is getting ready to re-invigorate us with blossoms, color, and sunny warmth! We need it.

I was born close to the spring equinox so my birthday, which was a few days ago, always signifies something hopeful to me… a fresh opportunity to grow wiser, happier, and healthier. It turns out that I stumbled into a brand new endeavor last year that’s really shaking up my life with new focus and excitement, and it’s coming into full bloom very soon.

It certainly wasn’t on my radar to go back to school at my advancing age, though I know I’m apparently a life-long learner and late-bloomer. But I was guided to enroll last fall in a certificate program with an extraordinary school named the Institute of Integrative Nutrition®, or IIN® for short. Perhaps you’ve heard of it – it was the first of it’s kind about 25 years ago and it’s globally recognized for it’s unique integrative approach to training coaches of holistic and healthy lifestyle.

I’m nearly half-way through the year-long program and what I’ve learned so far is really eye-opening. Soon I’ll be letting you all know more about the support I’ll be offering for the holistic health of body, mind and spirit. This is just a teeny preview because I absolutely can’t wait to start this new type of coaching!

I’ve always been considered a “health-nut,” in the eyes of some family members and friends. Part of that was a natural resonance with the seeds of the mass consciousness slowly awakening to ancient practices of yoga, spirituality, and whole health back in the sixties and seventies, when I was coming into adulthood.

I know now that this type of holistic consciousness is radically in need of awakening in America. In fact, it’s dangerously in need of awakening in a big way! We have become a fast-food nation, overweight and under-nourished by the things that matter most in life: relationships, physical activity, spirituality, meaningful work, and unprocessed, non-pesticide-ridden, whole food. Our health care system is questionable. The value placed on disease prevention is minimal. Our health and food options are influenced by marketability, convenience, big business, and government. It’s time we took back our power over our own lifestyle.  Without good physical health, it truly is challenging to be happy, peaceful, and fulfilled.

I’m thrilled that I’ll be bringing forward a new evolution of a fundamental passion of mine: holistic health coaching that supports you in taking ownership of a healthy lifestyle on all levels. I’ve been working for over 23 years as a channel for energetic healing and reconnection to Spirit. Now I’ve been guided to help you stand in, and for, the health of your lifestyle; Because your beautiful, sacred spirit needs supportive practices and a healthy body temple to really shine brightly in its mission here on Earth. 

It takes a strong intention, perseverance and a lot of clarity, nowadays, to dig for the physical causes of disease and work through the maze of theories, treatments, and countless methods of finding balance within and without. In my shamanic work, we can find the spiritual cause of a disease or imbalance – but when it reaches the physical level of manifestation, one needs to address it physically, too. What I see, very sadly, is a lot of people on medication to control symptoms, not really addressing the cause of the symptoms which might require changes in lifestyle, career, or relationships. Symptom-control is profitable for Big Pharma, but not for you in the long-run.

Because of lack of information or deeply conditioned habits, it sometimes requires support to craft a lifestyle or make changes that prevent illness from evolving. The hectic pace and chaos of life now work against us. Many of us are struggling just to keep our heads above water – to get enough sleep, enough relaxation, enough exercise, love, healthy food, etc…. I hope to be that coach who supports people in listening to their own inner guidance and taking charge of their lifestyle, diet, spirituality, and exercise choices. I’d like to see everyone living long, radiant lives on all levels of body, mind, and spirit – and in a way that is wholly unique and pleasing to them.

In case you have considered learning health coaching as a career, or if, perhaps, you are just interested in revitalizing your own health and lifestyle choices, the Institute of Integrative Nutrition® is holding a conference this coming weekend and is offering a free livestream. It will be broadcast Saturday, March 25, from 10am – 3pm Eastern Time and Sunday, March 26, from 10am – 12pm Eastern Time. They are having some great speakers, including Dr. Andrew Weil, Joshua Rosenthal (founder of the school), and others. It will give you a taste of the focus, the teachers, and the philosophy of this type of coaching.  To register for this free conference, click:  bit.ly/2mPPluE.

If you have any questions or would like to know the speaker’s schedule for the conference, just drop me a note at paula@fromtheheartcenter.com.  Meanwhile, more to come about my new coaching offerings. And no worries, I have no plans to stop offering all the other work I do and love….this will be one more tool for embracing the experience of being fully alive.
