Find Happiness, Love, Healing, Confidence & Release your Fears

Each of your charkas is a reservoir of information —spiritual energy, memories and emotions. Stored within each chakra are the answers and reasons why your life is how it is.

By awakening and shifting your attention you can perceive the stories and retrieve lost aspects of yourself that are just below the surface of your awareness.

Accessing these stories gives you the opportunity, often for the first time, to get to the bottom of the problems and challenges you face each day.

Whether you are working thru physical, emotional or relationship issues your charkas have the answers. The entire history of your consciousness can be found within your energy body. When you dip into this inner body of knowledge—empowerment happen. As you find your true self and deep lasting healing occurs!

For decades I have dove into my energy body, like a pearl diver, seeking answers and understanding and I have never failed to reap the benefits of this kind of inner exploration.

My clients for 20+ yrs have always been amazed at how such a simple and direct process can change everything.

Each of these men and women found answers, hidden within themselves. Understanding dawned, like the harvest moon and filled each person with light, so they could lo0k within and find their truth.

Each released their pain, sorrow, doubts, grief, betrayal, fears, anxiety and traumatic past.

Each of these men and women rediscovered themselves—as they peeled away layers that, like grime on a window, dimmed their inner light.

They came away happier, more relaxed, unafraid, more loving and gentler with themselves, confident self-assured and free from symptoms that plagued and confounded them.

Each in turn discovered the truth within their being and healed the heart of their being.

This is what I can offer you — self-discovery and healing that will transform you.

Lynn came to see me because she was experiencing a rapid and frightening heartbeat that felt as if her heart was going to jump out of her chest. She unearthed the past life memories that drove her heart to beat wildly in her chest. And she was able to resolve her congenital heart problem she had since birth. Her connection to the man she loved deepened as she relived a time when she had known him before. Intimacy and relief arose from our work together and replaced her self-doubt, pain and fear with love, confidence and healing.

Sara came to see me when she learned that the man she loved had been with another woman. This heartbreak opened the door to memories long forgotten both from the present and the past and deep healing as she worked thru the layers of betrayal that originated in England centuries ago. She was able forgive the man she loved and stay with him. Working thru the betrayal and pain of her past and present. She found love and trust both in herself and within her relationship and released, her fears, guilt, self- doubt and anger and found her true heart.

Sophia came to see me when she because of deep grief and unhappiness in her relationship. She discovered she could transform her doubts and self-hatred into self-acceptance and joy. And as a by-product found work she loves.

Anna came to see me when was unable to sleep and concentrate because of night terrors and dreams. She came to understand the past lives that were revolving in her nightmares and was finally able to put them to rest. Clarity and understanding blossomed as she released of her sense of being invisible and unseen in her life.

Jordan discovered why he and his ex-wife were always art odds, why he felt unappreciated, betrayed, incapable and sexually addicted. By releasing past life memories he regained his self–esteem, strength, and compassion for himself and the woman he had loved and had children with, enabling him to happily attend his daughter’s wedding.

Francesca finally understood her fear tall building, bridges and heights and worked through the layers of past life memories to restore and regain her ability to face her fears and not be afraid that she would die or that disaster would strike. Worry and fear receded. Deep peace, self-knowledge and a new sense of connection both in her community and to herself were what she found. And a balancing of her inner energies empowered her to be more herself – strong, discerning and confident.

These are just a few stories from 25 years of working in the field of energetic and  spiritual healing and past life integrative therapy. The past and present live within us and thru inner exploration of your charkas or energy centers we can find peace esteem happiness and love.

Why do I Feel Invisible?

Sometimes it is the smallest forgotten moment that can change your perception of yourself  and your world. That was the case for a client, Anna, who came to see me because she was feeling invisible at work. She did excellent work but had been passed over for promotions. Why did she feel so invisible and unseen? She really wanted to understand why this was happening.  And she really wanted the raise she deserved.

She shared that even when she was a child she felt like she disappeared, often into books, which were her passion. But she did not want to feel this way anymore.

With such a clear desire and goal I asked her to breath deeply and to touch into her heart-mind and to gently go back to the first time she felt this sense of being invisible.

As she closed her eyes I felt her body relax and drift back in time. She opened her eyes a few minutes later and told me this story.

She was three years old when her grandparents came for a visit. It was a hot summer day along the gulf and her older brother and sister and she were playing outside when they arrived.

Her grandparents asked if they would like to go get ice cream and promptly took the two older children out to Woolworth’s leaving my client behind. When her brother and sister returned with ice cream she was so sad and just withdrew.

As she remembered these events she realized how invisible this made her feel. She was standing right there, next to her brother and sister but her grandparents went without her-they took the hands of her siblings and they all piled into the car leaving her behind.

She never realized how hurt she had been or how invisible she felt. She shared that this seemingly small action on the part of her grandparents has really impacted her and that until this moment she had never thought of that day. But she got how this simple experience made her feel invisible at her job in the present.

She reflected that her introverted childhood was probably a reaction to not wanting to be hurt and left out again. And she understood how energetically she withdrew unknowingly to this very day in her daily life. She also laughed and said that her grandparents probably did not want to have to double team with three kids in tow.

We worked with the emotions and memories and she left my office feeling rejuvenated, confident and ready to take her place as a visible member of her team at work.

She also had the skills to care for her past self, so she would never be invisible again. And when her next job review came up she received that long awaited raise, and was seen for the capable and smart woman that she was.

As you can see it is not only the big events that impact you, small moments that you have long forgotten can be the roots of problems or challenges you are facing in your daily life. Like this woman you too can find healing and restore your self-esteem and sense of identity by working with the emotional memories you have long forgotten. Inner peace, empowerment and renewed self-confidence can be your once again.

Derailed Dreams

How Roger discovered the roots of his heart disease and cancer.

It never ceases to amaze me when I see the direct links between the wounds and disconnections from the past and how they can lead to symptoms that are both emotional and physical in the present. Recently I worked with a man, who was feeling as if his life has never been in sync. You may know this feeling. He also shared that in the last year, after decades of living a healthy lifestyle that he was diagnosed with heart disease then prostate cancer within a matter of months.

He urgently wanted to understand why this had happened, he ate well, did not drink or smoke, did not use drugs and yet here he was in chemo and radiation therapy fighting for his life. As he shared his personal story, concerns and his deep desire to feel connected a picture in my mind began to take shape. It was clear that his father was somehow involved and that this was the first place where his sense of disconnection took place. As I shared this he expressed that as a young man he wanted to be a wildlife photographer and writer. His father however had other plans for him.

Being a business mogul and a captain of industry he wanted his son to follow in his footsteps. Being the good son he did what his father desired. He went to an ivy-league school and got a business degree and MBA. Like a train derailed from its track this man’s life started to take a course that was not his own. Even thought he had used his family’s money wisely and with great altruism after his father’s death there was no satisfaction in it. It left him feeling empty.

What became crystal clear was that both his heart disease, which manifested as a alarmingly slow heart rate that the doctors said could lead to a heart attack or stroke at any time and his prostate cancer were linked to this man’s not taking the course that was his original desire in life. His heart was not in the game and was not doing what he had wanted most, to be a photographer and writer.

Connections surfaced more and more as we talked and he comprehended how his inner male energy had been disabled by this simple act of submission to his father’s desires. He saw how in essence and energy this emasculated him; just as the chemo drugs were doing now.

He saw his heart disease in a new light as well, seeing how his desire to please his father and later his friends and colleagues was often not in alignment with his own desires. He also realized how he gave away his power and male energy, which looked flattened and almost lifeless to me, by letting others take the reins and by not saying no to those he loved.

We worked thru many layers and he began to see clearly how the structures, behaviors and beliefs had affected his health and relationships. He walked away with a variety of energetic exercises and a deep sense of how he had to proceed. He felt he was in charge of his life now – not his doctors, another set of authority figures, nor his wife or business partners but himself. He could say no to things that did not resonate in his heart. And he realized what he had accomplished in his life and gave thanks for his family’s legacy and money, which allowed him to do so much for his community and family.

For years now, I have seen how symptoms are linked to the past and how events from the past can create deep schisms in your body and spirit. Finding the moments where the train was switched to another track and resolving and revisioning these moments and the patterns they create can lead to new found hope, deep release of old wounds, more harmony and peace in your life.

Empowerment and healing come when you reflect upon your past and see the energy connections that are linked to your symptoms in the present. This path of rediscovering your inner truth and moving from that deep place of truth can help you heal your life in ways you may never have imagined possible. It is yet to be seen if this man will heal from the diseases that have manifested within his body but he has a chance now to heal the disconnect he has felt so long within his heart and mind.

Psycho-energetic and somatic therapy combined with intuitive and spiritual insights can help you connect the dots and see the big picture. You can find clarity, relief, and hope, insight, empowerment and greater well-being, it is right here – within you.

How Past Life Memories Affect your Body

In 1991 I witnessed for the first time in someone other than myself the extraordinary grip past life memory has upon our physical body. Lynn began experiencing an irregular heart beat in 1990 while studying massage. This irregular beat frightened her and one day it became so wild that she was rushed to the hospital with her heart racing out of control. After a barrage of tests, the doctors discovered that she had a congenital heart defect. As a massage student Lynn began to investigate her symptoms but always fell short of understanding why her heart plagued her so. Now years later, Lynn would discover the cause of her heart’s irregular and rapid beat.

As I lead Lynn’s class in a visualization exercise into their hearts, Lynn swept beyond the heart of her 30’s, 20’s and childhood. Immediately she felt cold stone under her back and saw a canopy of rain forest overhead. In that moment she relived and began to release the cause of her heart’s current symptoms. She understood how she had been affected by these memories, that were held by her heart, from another time and place.  Within a period of four months she was symptom free. I realized then that others could experience what I had and heal their most perplexing and traumatic physical problems by exploring the origins of their symptoms. My life took a dramatic turn as I realized the possible applications of what I had now seen in another person. Symptoms could be shifted as well as emotions!

Your mind, body and spirit are your profound allies in this lifetime. Using your body — you can resolve and heal your emotions and symptoms that have persisted. Your past lives shape your current reality and by accessing these memories you reinvigorate and empower yourself. You can come to know a place of deep knowing and wisdom that is alive within you as well. This is the gift of past life exploration and therapy. It is not about hypnosis or regression — you can do it yourself, for yourself and be an agent in your healing process.

Memory In Our Bones

I will be sharing energy practice and articles that will help you clear the energy patterns held within your cells, bones and tissues, using a body of work I created in 1991 and have been teaching ever since.

New Beginnings —Healing Origins and Discovering the Power of Embodied Memory

We are alive with memory. It flows in our cells, bones, tissues and consciousness. The last frontier is inner space and it is within us where our answers lie. Our symptoms and emotions are the body and mind’s way of getting our attention and they provide us with a way into the richness our inner world.

Using our powers of intuition, visualization and deep inquiry and by contacting our innate inner wisdom we can find healing. We need only take the leap into our body and chakras, symptoms and emotions to find the memories, patterns and beliefs that hold our memories in place and limit us. Our chakras are centers for contacting and tapping into these memories, emotions and beliefs that lie dormant within us and are a wellspring of information and energy.

Memories and emotions are imprinted in our chakras, cells, organs and bones, quietly waiting. Waiting for us to be courageous enough to face the origins of our confusion, grief, anger, fear, phobias, doubt and suffering. When we engage our body memory and consciousness directly, we can emerge from this journey, with the keys to releasing our symptoms, complex emotions and the traumas and events from both this and other lifetimes.

Each of you has answers within you, you just need to be ready to ask the necessary questions, instead of dancing around an issue, try grabbing it like a tango dancer, embrace it, and take action. Your body and consciousness hold all of your memories— from the moment you first took birth, so use this, don’t fear or avoid your pain or symptoms, engage them, and allow healing to flow into your heart and mind.

Your body is like a great library and by asking questions that about  the symptom or emotion you are feeling, you can find answers. The question is the key and by asking it, you unlock the memories, emotions and scenarios from across time, from your childhood, from other lifetimes and even from when you were in the womb.

These memories will surface if you cultivate a mind that does not know, judge or fantasize. This is what Suzuki Roshi called a beginner’s mind. This kind of mind that is curious— free of expectations, and preconceived notions is essential, then the doors of deep healing can open.

The origins of your current struggles can become clear to you, and with compassionate discernment, you can discover the beliefs that hold these ancient memories and emotions in play. By doing this your symptoms and emotional states can deeply change.

So, take the plunge, this spring find the freedom you long for. Release the past that binds you once and for all. Understand the ancient histories embedded within, unwind them, and you can start fresh from this moment….. from this breath.
