Life is long and the path has infinite turns.
There are times when we feel "off course" or wanting to access more energy and fuel for when we are inspired and "on course." Either way, the following offerings are different variations of how a private session with Rochelle can provide support for this unique moment in your journey.
Create a Personalized Movement Ritual
Through a discussion where we identify the key aspects you desire to put more emphasis on in your life, we will create a personalized movement ritual for you. By taking 10-15 minutes each day, you will infuse your intellectual and emotional learning into your body, feeling the higher vibration of what you want to create in every cell in your body. The more you are able to sustain and expand your reclaimed feelings of balance and joy, the easier it will be to make decisions that are in energetic alignment with your desires.
For example, I had a private client who worked for Lehman Brothers as a stock broker. As her company was floundering, she felt a wave of uncertainty about her future. Together, we created a personalized movement routine to help her physically process the change happening in her life. At first, she worked on doing lots of balancing postures so she could FEEL balanced in her body. Then, I had her explore free dancing in her living room to feel the opportunity and creativity in chaos. She successfully navigated her circumstances and found a much better job that employs her financial prowess to help non-profits stabilize their finances.
Two ways creating a Personalized Movement Ritual will serve you:
- It is easier to control your behavior than your emotions – in fact, your behavior influences your emotions. If you feel yourself stuck in a negative mental loop or a strong pattern that keeps repeating, it is easier to process through movement than it is to force yourself to change through your mental will or analysis.
- Your epiphanies in life will not serve you by their simple occurrence, but in the way that you apply them to your daily life. A personalized movement ritual gives you a structure to fully embody and infuse your cells in the new behaviors and understanding so you can integrate it fully.
Your daily habits create your life. Doing a 10-15 minute personalized movement ritual everyday will bring more attention to what you truly want to create in your life, expanding both your gratitude for what already is and ability to receive your desires.
Individual or Small Group Movement Training
Individual or small group movement training is an opportunity to focus on your:
Physical body: technique, correct alignment, coordination, body assessment, strength building, flexibility, endurance, and overall wellness and balance to the body through yoga, dance, sensual movement, strength/weight training, stretching. We will locate the most enjoyable and efficient ways to bring your body into its optimum health and functioning.
Mental body: enhancing ability to focus, concentrate and meditate, harnessing one’s mental power and applying it through guided meditation, intention setting, and visioning. Use the power of your mind’s imagination to dream bigger dreams.
Emotional body: Honoring emotions as they arise and using movement as a way in which to express them. One of my favorite ways to think of emotions is from “Ask and It is Given” by Esther and Jerry Hicks. They ask, would you ever look at the dashboard of your car, see you are low on gas, and start cursing at the car saying, “You stupid car!” No. You would pull into a gas station and fill up. Yet, what do we do when our emotions signal to us something is off? Many people have a tendency to have an internal battle about the appropriateness of their emotions, the origin, the pattern, the implications if acted upon, if not acted upon...and on and on. Learn movements and daily practices that will help you channel the information that emotions are giving you and how to have that information serve your highest good.
Spiritual/Soul body: This is a subject that goes beyond words and yet needs mentioning. When your body is healthy, you are more able to focus mentally. When your mind is clear, you are more able to manage your emotions with reverent self-love, appreciation of others, and compassion. When your mind, body, and emotions are all congruent, you are able to drink from the well of spirit. This is less about something you read, something someone says, or something you realize. It is a deep awareness of the present moment. Through all of these practices, you will ultimately increase your ability to be present, to really pay attention, and in doing so will start to or continue to feel a deeper relationship to your ideas of spirituality and to the soul callings that live inside you.
Shamanic Energy Healing
Shamanic Energy Healing is an ancient practice that is increasing in popularity along with other forms of alternative healing, like yoga, acupuncture, and reiki. While contemporary Western medicine addresses symptoms, energy healing looks more at the integrative relationship to health that includes one’s thoughts, emotions, lifestyle, and the way energy is moving or is blocked in their system.
Shamanic energy healing is especially helpful during times of transition, grief, and loss, a new phase of life, or at any time to get insight on how to follow the soul callings or yearnings you may be feeling.
What Happens in a session?
In shamanic energy healing, we start with a short talk in which we explore what's happening currently in your life. What are your current challenges, blessings, and desires? What needs to be released? What is ready to be born?
A session can bring healing attention to a variety of things: physical symptoms, emotional challenges, the desire for more energy, spiritual fulfillment, addressing repetitive themes and patterns, or big dreams that you're preparing to take on.
Note: we will always approach your stated issue from the perspective that it contains a gift for you.
As a graduate of the Healing the Light Body School of The Four Winds Society, I will use my training as a master practitioner of energy medicine to create an opportunity for you to clear heavy energies and restore yourself back to balance and light.
Illumination is one of the main shamanic healing techniques used. Shamans believe that we each have a luminous energy field that contains all of the information that informs our life. The shamanic energy medicine maps correspond with the Indian chakra system and the Chinese acupuncture points and meridian lines. While Western medicine looks mainly at the physical manifestation or symptoms, we will look at clearing the blueprint that is held energetically. The Illumination process transforms heavy energies into light. This is a metaphor for transforming one's wounds into sources of power and knowledge.
A session is not designed as a quick fix, correction, or life change -- although any of these things may very well happen. The unique gift of shamanic energy healing is an enhanced awareness of your life as a journey, and new tools to help you embrace that journey and embody your strengths as you pursue your highest destiny through your desires.
The Despacho Ceremony
Another option for an energy healing session is to do a Gratitude Despacho Ceremony. The despacho is a gift to spirit, or the organizing principles of the Universe, and is a ritual of energetic exchange for healing, reestablishing right relationship and protection. The despacho is a living artistic reflection of your inner landscape of life, that sacred level of the soul. The despacho ceremony has it’s symbolism of each element in the offerings where each item represents a prayer and a gift of power that sparks the momentum for energy shifts and healing. You will set up your despacho by blowing your prayers into the various items creating a mandala or living art work of your prayers. When you are complete you either bury, burn or put the prayer offering into running water.
