“Be YOU, change the world”
-Dr. Dain Heer
Thank you for visiting my site.
Here is a bit of my story ….. And a story is all it is ….. but sometimes stories give us a gem of a possibility to go create forthwith ….
When I was a little girl I was plagued with worry, fear, and stress. I had happy moments and moments I laughed so hard I peed my pants but most of the time I was a pretty tense kid. I put a lot of pressure on myself to take care of my family members and to be a “good” person, and a “good” student amongst the chaos of a broken family – a family facing financial challenges, domestic violence, alcoholism and personality disorders from severe trauma. I dealt with this all by standing up tall and not letting anything in. While I was still shy, I had a pretty good armor on that kept me impenetrable and in control.
These strategies can only last so long. For me I am thankful at an early age I started to ask questions that began changing things for me. I asked, “How can I feel better?”, “Who am I really?” , “What is spirituality?”, “How does the universe work?”, “How does it get better than this? “. Questions like this started leading me to experiences, places, people and training that began to open me up to receive my life more, accepting myself and finding my voice. Life began to feel lucky. Synchronicities started to happen and songs began to come through me. Life was beginning to feel enriched with wonder, light, and possibilities.
Several pivotal things happened to me early in my life that really began to create this shift. First I went to my first meditation class when I was 18 and had an out-of-body experience. Then I had a health teacher that started to show me the effects of food in my body. When I was 19 my mother gave me a book called, You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hays. The following year when I was 20 I got Shakipat from Guru Mia -one of the most peaceful experiences of my life. Then later on at 28, I studied the Course In Miracles for a year. These pivotal events in my early life paved the way for more opening and discovery in the following years.
Some of my biggest teachers have been the songs I have written and the voice I used to sing them. The process of becoming a singer /songwriter was spontaneous and unexpected. I started singing as a response to all the opening that was happening in my body and my being as I let go of the trauma. As I sang I became aware of my body and how my light body came through it. I noticed the more I made room for the light the more I would let go and open my voice without hesitation. It was an ecstatic feeling of flying in one’s own body without leaving the ground.
I continue to feel that sense of freedom, lightness, and sensation of flying. Through the years It really has been a roller coaster ride of joy and depression – enjoying life and not enjoying life. It all is curious, it all creates the next opening, it all is a glorious ride. I’m happy to say the roller coaster has fewer ups and down these days. There are more days with joyful presence in them. There are more days I’m excited about possibilities and there are more days I feel that the love of the universe has my back and I can rest in that.
I find a lot of joy in guiding others to open up to the love and joy that is available to each one of us regardless of the stories we’ve lived. Making amends, forgiveness, release, sounding the voice, unconditional love, possibilities, trust, and presence – these are the ingredients of an enriched life. This is what I facilitate my clients toward. Whether it’s with yoga, Holy Fire Reiki, Voice work or guiding end of life transitions, it is my point of view that our deepest playground of personal evolution is opening up to presence and unconditional love for our selves and each other. From there anything is possible in these lives and beyond.
I’m excited now to be taking this journey of my healing practices and freeing my voice into a new field. Recently my husband and I were talking. We love talking about our creations through our businesses. In this conversation, the practice of Vocal Reflection Therapy was born or I should say the name was born as the process has been developing for many years now.
Vocal Reflection therapy is an exciting practice that leads you to discover the Power of YOU through freeing your voice. One is led through self-discovery practices that involve vocal technique, vocal awareness, and vocal empowerment. It is a powerful journey to deepen your connection with your authentic self, your inner peace, and your self-expression. I am thrilled to be offering this journey I’ve taken in my life to others that is a culmination of all the growth modalities I have been through myself.
