I often have difficulty explaining what I do as an energy healer. When I work with people, they have an experience, and this is often hard to distill into a sound byte that transmits the power of what we’ve done together. I have my elevator speech: I help entrepreneurs and change-makers who are stuck in building their biz, to break through their blocks so they can have the life they’ve always dreamed. True, and also it’s so.much.deeper.
That being said, allow me to share with you in a message that is a bit longer than usual, and worth the read…
Last week, I was lucky enough to put myself in the path of totality for the eclipse. It was the most magnificent thing I’ve ever seen, and one of the most powerful moments of my life. I’m not prone to hyperbole: this was phenomenal. In the wake of that experience, I feel two things: the power of shadow, and the power of life force.
In the weeks and days before the eclipse, the power of shadow was strong.We saw it in the news, and many saw it in their own lives. What does this mean? It means that the part of our psyche that we’ve disowned was running the show. I love this definition: shadow is the “part of our personality that is incompatible with our chosen conscious attitude about ourselves.*” The golden shadow is the positive aspect of ourselves that we deny, and the dark shadow is the negative aspect that we ignore. The dark shadow gets created in times of neglect, abuse, or trauma, especially when are looking for love, connection and understanding. Without healing, the dark shadow will cause us to lash out when we feel threatened or misunderstood. Rather than reach for common ground, we will fight for our lives.
The irony is, we are fighting for love. When we are finally able to drop the sword and admit how hurt we are, we can feel wretched – this is such a vulnerable place. We needed love and connection so badly, and got denied over and over again and it was so painful, that our psychological defense mechanism said, “no more – you will not reach out like this to keep getting denied and hurt, we are shutting this down.” Thus a dark shadow is born.
The healing response to the dark shadow is to stop the fight, and soften into love and compassion. This can feel impossible in the heat of the moment, and sometimes you need to walk away so you can just stop seeing red. Then you can come back to yourself, feel your power, and approach the situation with a level head, an open heart, and the positive intentionality to build bridges rather than destroy them.
Which brings me to the power of life force. The shadow of the moon during a total eclipse moves across the land at over 1,000 mph. This moment for me was scary and disorienting. I had zero control as the shadow fell; this was not happening gradually. The moment felt psychedelic, and I don’t do psychedelics. I had a choice: ground in a stay present, or leave my body and miss the whole thing. I chose to stay, and what followed was pure elation. Tears streamed down my face as I witnessed the corona; I breathed in and opened my body and leaned in and howled YES to life.
This life force is coursing through me as I write to you now, and I know it must be shared. It is my joy to share with you what I do best, which is to dive deep, one-on-one, with those who feel the call.
The Alignment Sessions
Over September and October, I am offering 20 individual sessions for those of you who are inspired to change the course of your lives. The sessions are free, live, one-hour, deep dives with me, and valued at $250.
How do you know if this is right for you? If you feel nervous or excited in this moment, that means there is a resonance. Your inner compass is saying – do it, break through, take the stand for yourself. Maybe you need clarity, focus and inspiration, maybe you need simplicity and alignment, maybe you need support and healing. The beauty of one-on-one sessions is that I can meet you exactly where you are, and we can rock it from there.
It is such a pleasure for me to offer this, because those who take advantage will get the experience of working together – and it is the depth of that connection, and the power of that transformation that I am always trying to convey in every newsletter, class, or communication.
Guidelines for the sessions:
- If you can’t find a time that works for you, please reply to this email and we’ll get you in.
- Come ready to work! The power of your session is 100% defined by the energy you bring to it. I come ready to rock and roll, and I expect you to, as well!
- Your session is etched in gold – I won’t be rescheduling these sessions, so please choose a date and time you know you can make.

Again, book your session here. They are first-come-first-serve, so go ahead and jump on the opportunity.
It’s always a pleasure to be in contact with you, in every way. My intention with every outreach is to help you drop deeper into the truth of who you are so that you are creating from a place that is deeply alive, and living the life of your dreams – on every level.
