Linda has had the privilege of holding healing space for hundreds of people who have wanted to become whole, balanced and alive again. If you have come to a place in your life where you feel a part of yourself is missing, if you are looking for mentoring by someone who has also walked this path then allow yourself the opportunity to release and grow with Linda as a part of your healing team. The following describes the primary modalities that Linda uses to aid you in becoming your own healer.
Body Mind Counseling
Our wellbeing is a reflection of the relationship between our body and our mind (psyche). From Linda's many years of observing and teaching at Body Mind College, she has witnesses that the human body is a walking autobiography of one's past experiences and beliefs. We consciously and unconsciously hold patterns in our body and mind that affect every aspect of our lives. These past experiences and beliefs can be the catalyst for change, release and positive reframing.
Many traditions believe that disease and illness in the human body is caused by blocked energy (chi). When the chi remains blocked, the rest of the body falls more out of balance and illness and disease can result if the flow is not restored. Linda can help identify the restricted areas and gently yet powerfully help you to release the blocks and restore the flow of life force throughout your system. Training in Jin Shin, Reiki, Shamanic healing, Therapeutic Touch and Touch for Health allows Linda to draw from a full range of modalities in this healing practice.
Shamanic Healing includes powerful forms of energy transmission that invite assistance from nature's forces and from other dimensions. Using shamanic healing modalities, Linda can assist you in reclaiming and/or re-membering the lost parts of yourself. Whether the loss comes from a mental, physical, emotional, or spiritual origin, she may help guide you to a place where your personal power lives. Shamanic Healing is an outgrowth of a strong spiritual practice with commitment to service and the highest good of all. Linda’s devotion to this path makes her ability to hold space for your vision and well-being strong and trust-worthy. She has walked this path with the aid of her teachers: Alberto Villoldo, Ruben Orellana, Theo Paredes, Oscar Miro-Quesada, Michael Harner and Pam Milliken.
The best mentors have not only the ability to envision with you but also the ability to direct you to that vision clearly and lovingly. Linda will see you, hear you, accept you, and encourage you with language that is direct, to the point, and empowering. Are you ready to face your truth and manifest your dream?
Vibrational Healing Tools
Aromatherapy is one of the oldest and most respected healing modalities known to mankind. Essential Oils are the regenerating, oxygenating and immune defense properties of plants. We can benefit from many of their valuable properties such as: anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-microbial, anti-fungal, and anti-septic.
Besides aiding physical healing essential oils also can promote emotional healing. Research has found that only the sense of smell can stimulate the amygdala gland of the brain. The amygdala is the memory center that plays a major role in the storing and releasing of emotional trauma. Research has also found that people who smell particular essential oils carry out their work with more confidence, efficiency and patience.
Considering the effects of environmental pollution, stress and compromised immune systems on our wellbeing, could something as natural and readily available as theraputic grade essential oils from plants be an answer to aid humans? The best way to answer that question is to try them for yourself and use them on family and friends. (For information on the Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils I have been using since 1993).
In the 1930's an English physician, Dr. Edward Bach, began researching the connection between stress, emotions and illness. Dissatisfied with the orthodox medical approach, he found that particular plants emit a special energy or vibration that can create a positive influence on particular negative states of mind. He created 26 flower remedies which brought relief from specific types of emotional distress. (Please check out Linda's Favorite Products for Bach's Rescue Remedy).
Today, their are many companies that have created a vast number of flower essences. The three companies that I enjoy working with are: Bach Flower Remedies of England, FES-Flower Essence Society of California and Perelandra Flower Essences of Virginia. If you are interested in learning how these beautiful gifts from nature may help you, please Contact Linda and communicate your particular emotional healing needs. I would be honored to create your own flower essence combination bottle to aid in your emotional healing.
Sound and Music
Whether it's classical music, indigenous drumming or ancient chants, the power of sound and music has long been a potent healing tool in cultures around the world. Ancient and traditional peoples, as well as 20th century researchers, have documented music's astonishing role in healing. Through relaxation and stimulation, pain control and stress reduction or emotional catharsis, sound and music have been used successfully to intercept illness. The conscious use of music promotes physical and mental wellness, and connects us spiritually. In many cultures, different sounds play a primary role in the death and dying process. Today's western healthcare practitioners are now learning how to use sound and music in hospitals, hospices and at home.
Come experience sound by listening with your body as well as your ears. Learn why and how music effects change for you. Participants will be able to incorporate what they've leaned into their professional practice and personal lives. Linda has studied Sound with Don Campbell, Tom Kenyon, Jeffrey Thompson, Pat Moffit Cook, and Fabien Maman.
Color therapy is the use of the vibrational frequency of the colors of the electro-magnetic spectrum to correct the imbalance or disharmony in the human body. All living things have their own vibrational frequency. This electro-magnetic field or aura contains all the colors of the spectrum and they are constantly changing in volume, shade and density according to our state of health or mood. so, whether you are conscious of the colors you wear or the colors of the food you eat, whether you observe the colors of the Chinese Five Elements or the chakra system, color is affecting your well-being. Why not use this knowledge to help heal yourself?
