You're a smart cookie. You want to heed the messages from your body and you try to make time to care for it. You fit in exercise (never as much as you want)! You aren't afraid to check in with your doctor, you get a massage when you can. You pay attention to what you eat.
But the truth is, you know the aches and pains of your body are speaking a deeper message to you, because you experience yourself as being far more than just a body.
It's been a lot harder to find a practitioner to work with who can help you tend to the discomfort and also see deeper to help you unpack and reveal the whole picture of where the physical fits in with your bigger Soul story unfolding.
How I help you on the physical level:
4 years of Energy Healing training in Brennan Healing Science that taught me to perceive the physical as a manifestation of the energetic, or as medical intuitive Caroline Myss says: “Your biography becomes your biology.”
20 + years of Craniosacral Therapy practice. We can unwind and release the physical structures of your body: bone, muscle, connective tissue, nerve. We will also dialogue with your Inner Wisdom, the knowing consciousness in your body, to get guidance directly from your own cell tissue.
Plant Spirit medicine. Based in traditional Chinese 5 Element medicine, I am trained to work with the acupuncture meridians and to balance your Elemental energies which can settle down a whole range of symptoms.
On an emotional level... You're no stranger to your feelings. You're not shut down. But what presents on the surface, or the first feeling to get stirred--the frustration, the blah, the tiredness, the tension or worry, the tears, is likely just the surface of a deep well of energy-as-emotion that wants to move, release, reveal, flow and let go into a different more Soul connected state.
Who will hold the space for you to do that? You’ve probably done some Psychotherapy along your path. You covered some ground and learned a lot about yourself.
Now you want to work with someone who can see and meet you more deeply. Someone who can read your Soul, spirit and heart movements through your energy field and presence with you where you long to be met.
How I help you on the emotional level... I've done over 10 years of psychotherapy work myself, including Jungian Analysis, the Pathwork, EMDR, and Somatic Experiencing, so I'm no stranger to developmental psychology, archetype and dream analysis, and trauma work. Being in therapy was a requirement of my training at the Barbara Brennan School of Healing and so was supervision.
My training as an Energy Healer included a strong focus on emotional process work and psychodynamics. What are psychodynamics? Every time you have a feeling, a thought, or an experience, it plays out as observable energy movement in your field. I tune into this to reveal the deeper goings on, that you sense, but can’t quite grasp and illuminate. To heal, you need to feel. To unblock your energy, you must allow emotions to flow.
My deeper levels of Craniosacral Therapy training include dialoging with the issues in your tissues. You hold unresolved life experiences in your body. We can work to track and release these to get deeper physical and energetic releases, and more complete resolution of symptoms and blockages. This work is called Somato-Emotional Release work (SER).
I'm trained in Plant Spirit medicine. Joy, grief, anger, fear, sympathy: working with the Plants helps to balance your emotions so they are neither deficient in expression (shut down) nor excessive (too dominant, overwhelming or out of control). A more nourishing relationship with your emotional flow, and life, is the result.
On the level of your spirit...
You've tasted connection. You know there is a Truth to you and your work in this life.
But this crazy modern world...so insanely busy! The “to-do list” never stops. And if you have children...!! Most of the time you feel so tired and overstimulated, it’s hard to slow down, never mind drop into a sacred space of Soul nourishment.
You might feel shy to connect with others and the world from this place within you. It feels private, sacred and not fully colored in yet. So you do what the world seems to expect and show up with your persona. And you are so very competent...
Yet there is a hunger to move, connect, breathe, radiate, create and engage from your Soul depth.
In the healing room I hold that Sacred Space where this part of you can expand, commune, and be received and recognized.
Divine energies arrive during the work to lift you up, take you deep, and remind you without words, what is True Nature in yourself. You begin to flow in relationship with the divine expressions that live underneath all the veneer of our modern world.
How I help your spirit...
Here are some of the ways I've explored my own spirit so I can help you honour yours:
My Energy Healing training includes access to higher dimensions of consciousness, Divine Will, Divine Love, Divine Mind, Life Purpose, and your Core Essence.
Plant Spirit medicine is shamanic work with plants. When I ask my friends the plant spirits to come into you, we enter into the dream of the plant. Plants know how to live in balance with the place they put their roots down...and they can help you do the same.
Relationship with Christ and other Divine Expressions that come into the healing room. Deceased relatives sometimes need to connect. Ancestors from your lineages or this homeland may arrive to help.
Ancestral Traditions. We all have an indigenous heart and a part of us belongs to an ancestral tradition and homeland...though we may or may not know which one! I've been mentoring under my own Elders since 2005.
The Goddess. The divine feminine frequently graces us with her touch during treatments to fill you up with a perhaps much missed nourishment from your true Mother.
