What I do
I’m a lot like you. My life has been all over the place with wild joy (like the love I have for my children) and unbearable pain (losing my dad, my daughter, my dog..). The joy I’ll gladly take more of, but the pain part really sucks. It floors me how much pain is out there.
I work on myself all the time, letting go of stuff that doesn't work for me, creating more joy as I figure out how, and loving more whenever I can. Love is a really big deal. Trust me on that.
I love who I am and what I do. I know you want to feel this way about your life too. That’s the goal….and it’s completely attainable.
It might interest you to know that I have an MBA in finance and marketing. Combine that, my habitual analysis of everything, my knowledge of energy and my healing ability…and you have someone that can shift things in a big way.
One of my goals is to help hospitals and other large institutions understand energy and alternative therapies enough to see the need to incorporate them into their patient offerings, staff requirements and physical structure. I want to see hospitals where every staff person has at least had a basic reiki class and attunement. The institution itself should have a perpetual energy ("feeling") of caring and happiness. You want people to enter a hospital and feel safe and relaxed. Most hospitals have energy which has you feeling fear and dread. Compare how you feel in entering a hospital with how you feel in entering a sanctuary. There's not a similarity, and there should be. Just saying.
Classes & Workshops
I teach whatever I feel needs to be taught. Sometimes I teach what energy is, other times I teach how to love yourself. It’s a pretty wide range, but always consistent with my goal of bringing mankind into a higher place.
I’m a huge advocate for everyone having a better understanding of energy. Few people fully comprehend just what energy is, so I’m happy to educate them. Energy is HUGE, and the sooner we all accept that, the better off this planet, and mankind, will be.
Imagine feeling depressed and knowing what do to in order to shift out that. Sometimes physical activity will do it, sometimes food, sometimes a good book or maybe the affection (energy) of someone else, and other times it’s just a conscious intention. Shifting energy is easy and we do it all the time. If you understand how energy works, you can shift it that much faster and effectively for yourself and for others. I really love teaching people how to manipulate their own energy towards a more healthy and happier life.
Workshops tend to attract a different crowd. I like to help people find and be their truest, highest self and the ones ready for that tend to find my workshops. While classes and lectures are about teaching, workshops have more participation and the intention for personal change. You leave my workshops a different person. You feel more like the person you truly are rather than the one you ended up being.
Past workshops include learning how to love yourself, how to love unconditionally, how to channel energy, and finding your shamanic power animal. Great stuff.
Here's my teaching schedule.
I’ve been gifted since I was small, but actively facilitating different kinds of healings for almost 30 years. I have many different modalities (healing methods) that I use including belief work, energy work, shamanic practices and channeling. Healing modalities have tremendous overlap, and the more one is able to use, the wider the scope of the healing possible.
Scroll down and take a look at some testimonials on my work. I really appreciate the trust that my clients give me. It helps us to accomplish some pretty great things.
Very few people really get the value of art. Art is an expression of something, whether it’s an idea, an emotion or an event. The thing is, people rarely express something about which they care nothing. So now you are talking about a passionate expression of something that matters.
For me, art is a way of helping me feel what’s going on and to help others to take in something they need to know. I do that by infusing energy into my art that others pick up on and take in. How they express that is up to them.
It's funny, I've been life coaching for years, but just doing it as part of the healing process. A few people have recently hired me as a life coach and they're really happy with that label, so I'm adding it here. For me, life coaching is about my helping someone figure out how to get back to who they truly are....or as close as possible. Being your true self is as good as it gets. Life coaching (and healing...they really do work together) is how I help you get there.
I’m a great example of someone who’s certifications don’t fully reflect my capabilities. I tend to learn something new, understand the basics and take off with that. I do this because I am highly intuitive, highly analytical, a kinesthetic learner (I see it and I get it) and a voracious reader. For me, classes were just a starting point. In fact, I found they didn’t answer many of my questions. My library is extensive because I got the answers in books. After that, I worked on people and just figured things out. When you understand energy and how the body works, adjusting it and resolving issues is actually pretty easy. I was fortunate that many of my teachers understood this and took on an advisory role. It worked.
Medical practitioners (MP) deal with the physical body and Alternative practitioners (AP) deal with the energetic body. Interestingly, AP will work with the physical body (massage therapists, homeopaths etc) to release the toxins accumulated towards the resolution of issues with the energetic body. What’s tricky is that everything affects the energetic body first, and then the physical body. The medical world looks only to resolve the physical body, and that doesn’t often resolve the energetic body, which is why the issue returns, and/or why patients must continue taking medicines; the issue does not leave. With energy work, the issue leaves. The physical body is also fairly reliable in appearing in very predictable ways and different MPs will often see things the same way. The energetic body is rarely that consistent, and APs are equally varied.
This is my "classic" resume with my university degrees, financial work experience...everything that I did before I entered the world of energy. If you're wondering about analytical or organization skills, or how I know so much about businesses...this is your place.
