Healing is Letting Go

Death Valley was an incredible experience. What a beautiful place that gifted me more life and love.

I screamed with rage and laid upon the Earth and she helped me release all of those poisonous emotions that had been trapped in my heart and body. Afterwards I was beaming, full of love and light in a way I had never been before. Ritual details inside for you to try!

A very interesting thing happened when I was in Colombia that made me realize we’re more ready than we think we are. Ready for what exactly? Well, EVERYTHING.

When I arrived he asked me many questions and tested me in several ways then said, “You only need 5 days with me. Come back Monday.” I was in utter shock. But my flight back to the States what a month later. I couldn’t help but think, “Why is this happening?”

I love to dance. Dance is my medicine. It’s therapy. Food for our soul. It’s something we humans have done since the beginning of time. It’s written in our DNA. What happened to this lost art that allows us to embody our prayers, let go of tension and stress and release what is no longer serving us?

An MD Specializing in Energy

Healing is something we can consciously choose to experience, either guided by ourselves or another, when we wish to alleviate, enhance or change something within or around us.
