Shapeshifting Obstacles into Advantages

  Change always starts with confusion… difficult to be creative and inspired if we cannot allow chaos or confusion in.  We are not born to live life in pain, confusion and sadness rather to transform our lives through greater knowledge and understanding of ourselves and the world. The faster our world moves and the more […]

New Circumstance… Old Patterns

The universe is challenging you. Okay, you say you’ve changed: let’s test that theory out. This may show up in different ways; can be tempting, seductive or just plain in your face confrontational.
On the surface it would appear to be a no brainer. Freedom ‘YES’. Old limiting patterns ‘NO’. But there can be a pullback, even temporary setbacks that draw us backwards back into the trap.

Sonic Expression: Discover Your Authentic Voice

Finding your own voice can be a struggle. There are many layers.
Sometimes it’s hard not to be influenced by flamboyant voices claiming they are ‘THE ONE’ having the right or perfect vision of what is or must be.

We live in a world flooded with coercive manipulation as socially accepted persuasions and selling techniques:  whether through spiritual life, corporations, politics, consumer choices or today’s biggest influencer: social media. This gets packaged as helpful tools or self-development techniques to improve the quality of our lives. Frequently we buy into this manipulative, repetitive, fear-based message. […]

Redefining your Boundaries

Whether our boundaries are blurred, trampled, disregarded, or respected they determine limits. Do we use our boundaries to isolate ourselves or to create connection and relationships? Do we lose ourselves in them? Do we shun love or increase our ability to love? It is really what we do with our boundaries that count. Unhealthy boundaries lead to depression, anxiety, dependency, and illness.

Ancestral Healing: Release Inherited Trauma, Patterns and Beliefs

  Ancestral Healing reveals unconscious identifications with family members that ensnare, block and hinder us. These can be family we know and those who have come before us and we may know nothing about. These are our Ancestors. This is our Tribe. We hold within us a “blueprint” of our family history   Inheriting not […]

Healing Ancestor and Transgenerational Survivor’s Guilt

You don’t have to lose a loved one to a tragic and unnecessary death in order to suffer survivor’s guilt. This guilt is a blueprint for chronic unhappiness.  You feel guilty about being happy with your fate in life.There’s been a transmission of survivor guilt that is handed down from one generation to the next.  For some feeling pain and misery becomes their identity with a sense that they have no choice but to suffer if they are even to experience a temporary break from feeling guilty and experience some degree of happiness.
