I'm sure you can agree with me on two things:
You may ask yourself, why is this?
These statements are especially true in our modern, technology-driven, ego-centered world. We are missing true and authentic connection. This desire is a fundamental need for humanity's survival, development and fulfillment. When this need goes unmet, we suffer (think depression or pain), we seek it in ways that are unhealthy or unsustainable (think drug/alcohol use or thrill-seeking), or in the worst cases, we become sick in one way or another (think of the term "broken heart"). Those who are internally suffering without the awareness to recognize it, without the desire to change/heal or without the resources to do so perpetuate the issue at hand, making things worse for themselves (and others), even with the best of intentions.
On a basic level, connection to your spiritual nature is what lifts the veil of illusion and separation. When humanity's core-self (that of Spirit) goes unrecognized, unbalanced or unfulfilled, it creates a domino effect that negatively impacts everything. The kind of antidote needed to repair this (spiritual) imbalance comes from within and needs to be addressed internally, energetically and personally to provide lasting, positive results.
That's when I come in. I help YOU re-connect to YOU! I'm humbled to be a compassionate and loving guide on your journey to connection, balance, healing and wholeness.
I've been communicating with and working alongside my helping spirits, sometimes called spirit guides, ever since childhood...unknown to me then as an unusual thing. Throughout my childhood, adolescence and early adulthood, the support, love and protection of my guides helped me overcome complex traumatic experiences. Their presence was always known, felt and greatly appreciated. These difficult experiences "opened me up" and acted as an initiation onto the Spirit-filled Path that I walk today.
My life has been a journey of remembering...that there is more to life than the challenges we face, more to the pain we feel and more to this existence than the mundane. As you can imagine, I was significantly impacted - physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually - from that extended period of my early life. This initiation provided me the first-hand experience that I needed to realize, trust and develop my innate spiritual gifts. As a result, I was able to heal myself on the energetic and soul level. It has become my life's work, my destiny and my mission to continue healing, growing, and helping others on this Path.
The ancient ways of healing live STRONGLY in our bones, within the air we breathe and the sky that surrounds us. Although in order to access them, we must be open and ready to receive! My intuitive healing style is based on what I have learned through extensive study, work and practice with my spirit teachers (guides that are teachers in spirit form) through the practice of journeying and the use of my psychic abilities, as well as influence from talented and renowned practitioners such as Sandra Ingerman and Dr. Steven Farmer to name a few.
I am a Yoga Alliance certified RYT-500, ERYT-200 yoga instructor and thoroughly enjoy teaching others to build strength and enhance connection through conscious breathwork and body movement. I come from a long Jewish lineage in central and eastern Europe and have deep connections with my territorial, spiritual ancestors in North America. I have absolute respect for the traditions that go along with this work, and my intuitive, contemporary, western style is not meant to appropriate any specific culture or lineage. What I facilitate and teach comes from what I have learned, what I continue to practice and what has worked for me.
I see the resurgence of the healing arts as a blessing because we are in desperate need! We live in a society where we are generally numb to our inner senses and spiritual nature, yet we're on (outer) sensory overload due to increased technology use and busy schedules. It's very common to feel fatigue, depression or anxiety, have substance abuse problems or grow up in a dysfunctional household, on top of having severe medical issues that are relatively new to humanity. This shows me that we are in a collective state of disharmony and imbalance.
The healing practices I facilitate and teach help to mend, transform and resolve the wounds that inhibit deep, authentic connections with self, other, nature and Spirit. When untreated, these wounds (sometimes called spiritual illnesses or energetic imbalances) block us from accessing our greatest potential, place and purpose on the Web of Life. In severe cases, spiritual illnesses cause mental/emotional disruption or manifest as physical disease.
I believe healing, along with authentic spiritual connection, is our sacred birthright and mission as humans beings and people of the earth. In the moments before we entered utero, we were souls a part of something greater. We forgot for a moment, or perhaps a whole lifetime, only to one day remember who we really are...We are spiritual beings blessed with human form.
We grow and heal through becoming the driver of our lives, through softening the restraints of our mind, through compassionately befriending and occupying our bodies, through re-awakening our intuition and activating our sensory awareness, through embracing and respecting the wise ones who came before us, through receiving the medicine of Spirit uniquely and directly, and through the support of soul community. When we feel we belong, when we feel seen, heard and understood, when we know we are connected to more than the mundane physical world, everything changes. We receive and implement the benefits on a personal and collective level, positively influencing planet Earth, humanity and the entire Web of Life into a greater state of awareness, balance and harmony. When we heal, our ancestors heal, our descendants heal and the ripple continues to spread!
I am by no means perfect. We are all learning through this journey of life together. However, I have made it my life's work to dedicate myself to this Path, to facilitate Spirit healing and to re-connect the people of this planet with the truth of who they really are. My experience within the healing arts has been life changing, as it was for many colleagues and is for clients today. It has become my mission to serve my community through sharing the yogic, shamanic, intuitive and energetic healing methods that have changed the game (of life) for me!
I hold within my mind, body, heart and soul an intention of sacredness, inclusion, collaboration, and co-creation to dream a world into being together that is of beauty and love. Please reach out if you wish to discuss more, and I look forward to working with you!
