I'm no guru. I wouldn't consider myself a life coach either. What I hope to be is real. Sincere in my approach to life and others, sometimes raw in my expression, I come with an assortment of both gifts and flaws like everyone else. Of course, sessions with me aren't about me. They are about you. I just imagine you might want to know a bit about who you are considering doing sessions with.
I don't claim to know any more about how to live life than anyone else. Of course I've learned some things that really do seem to work, generally, but perhaps for some they never will. What I feel I have come to know for sure, is that we all must find our own way. After 2 decades of intense inquiry and investigation, this I feel sure of. AND, that we don't have to do it alone. This finding our own way with the help of another is at the heart of Clearing.
As a leader of Enlightenment Intensives, I am practiced in making contact with others, to see past mind and ego through to who they really are, the conscious one that they are, and to help them feel safe to show up fully. I meet people where they're at. It's in my nature to adapt to others so that they feel comfortable around me. I can hold space for a troubled soul, or for one who's been waiting to do that most frightening thing - to show up in all their Enlightenment. This all takes place in total confidence and without judgement, negative or positive, all the while relating in an authentic, natural way. I would be honoured to serve you.
***Sessions can be on Zoom or in person except the "Manifesting Model", offered only in person.***
"Perhaps one did not want to be loved so much as to be understood."
The fundamental principle at work in Clearing is that when we get ourselves across to another so that they truly understand us, healing and transformation can quickly occur.
We carry around a ton of undelivered communications, piled up in our minds and even our bodies. When we get it out in a safe space (confidential and without judgement) and have it understood by another, we clear it, release it. To the degree that we get in touch with what it actually is that's weighing us down or holding us back, and get it across to another and have it understood by them, to that degree will it be cleared, no longer with us. It's as though there's this truth that we once had to share, but for one reason or another it was stuffed back inside us, or we felt we had to swallow it. And now, it's like a toxin inside of us. It needs to come out.
Jesus said, "If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you.
If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you."
The Gospel of Thomas
The fundamental practice of clearing involves me, the clearer, seeking to understand you, the client, with no other agenda - period. The workings within it are simple and rather obvious: in order to get yourself across to another so that they truly understand you, you must get a very clear and true understanding of yourself. You get clear about that part of you. I get clear about that part of you. That part of you gets cleared. ... And you feel a whole lot better inside.
"Deep listening is the kind of listening that can help relieve the suffering of the other person.
You can call it compassionate listening. You listen with only one purpose: to help him or her empty their heart." Thich Nhat Hanh
(While this beautiful quote from Thay does not describe Clearing technically speaking, what is described certainly does happen in the process.)
What you've read so far describes the essence of this work. For you, that may be enough.
If you are of the kind who wants to know all the parts and pieces, by all means read on.
Clearing is different from counselling in that I won't counsel you on what to do or how to live your life. (There are some tools we can use to do things like set goals for yourself for example, but they are not clearing tools strictly speaking.) This work aims to directly involve our conscious beings, mine and yours - that is, who we really are. We take the stance that you have all the answers you need within you. We will seek them together. Clearing is different from therapy in that we don't aim to get emotions out, though they may well come, nor do we set out to heal any part of you, strictly speaking, though you may well feel healed after a session.
What fundamentally sets clearing apart from traditional talk therapies is that in clearing, we always set out to relate in Contact with one another, as in dyads or during a check-in with me on an Enlightenment Intensive. In contact, we do not speak, act, and relate with each other from ego, but from our conscious being. Sure, to at least some degree we will always relate through our ego, our personality. But relating from our conscious being to the other conscious being is our intention. I'm not suggesting that counselling and therapy sessions never take place in conscious contact, but they don't necessarily set out with that intention from the start.
"Basic Clearing" (or Mind Clearing)
These sessions deal mostly with current problems. A session can be aimed at a certain area in you or your life, seeking to understand you under that umbrella sort of speak, or it can be kept open to anything at all that comes up for you that day in session. You get to decide, while I may offer suggestions from time to time. There are a number of specific techniques that can be run. But mostly it's just me listening closely to understand you, and asking questions when something reveals itself to me as missing or out of alignment with other things you said such that I don't understand, or when I just need more information in order to understand you completely. I will simply persist in seeking to understand you in the area of your choosing until I do. You and I will both know when that happens, as in a moment of insight or realization, or just a simple understanding that you didn't have before. I think you get the picture.
Basic Clearing sessions done consistently through time are a great form of self-care. It's a safe environment where you can bring your day-to-day concerns and get them off your mind and out of your heart. Weekly or bi-weekly sessions are a good choice to maintain a steady sense of well-being in life. In any case, doing a series of sessions within a reasonable time frame can give you a significant boost, even if you don't keep at it consistently and long-term.
"You can rise above the ocean of karma through awareness."
Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
During a karma clearing session, I will give you these instructions:
"Tell me something you did that you think you shouldn't have done in your own estimation."
... then ...
"Tell me something you failed to do that you think you should have done in your own estimation."
These instructions will be cycled through again and again. In the beginning of the session, we will get clear on what we're about to do, and set the context for karma clearing. Then the bulk of the session (about an hour ) we will be running those 2 instructions. I may also ask a simple question from time to time to get clear about something you shared. Then there's a completion component, where you'll have an opportunity to give general comments about the session and to ask any questions you may have about the session. (These 2 ending completion instructions are standard to all types of sessions.)
Karma Clearing can do wonders to help a person rid themselves of guilt and shame from past actions or inactions, and help free oneself up to move forward in life, not repeating those same mistakes.
I also offer what I call "Yin-Yang Sessions". These are for the purpose of breaking through into higher levels of consciousness, even Direct Experience. They are for those familiar with Enlightenment Intensives. We would typically work together in basic clearing sessions before we go to a yin-yang session, but not necessarily. We would talk about it first.
I will cycle through 2 instructions. You have a choice of working on "who" or "what" you are.
So using "who" as your choice:
"Feel who you are right now, and tell me what comes up."
"Feel who you are not right now, and tell me what comes up."
(There are other variations of the same instruction that may be used.)
Cycling back and forth between getting a sense of who you are and who you are not, accelerates the loosening of stuck states, increasing the chances of de-identifying from false senses of self, and opening oneself up to Grace, to the Truth of who or what you really are.
This is something I particularly enjoy doing. It must be done in person.
This isn't about clearing a problem really. It's used when you have a project you want to complete. You know what the end will look like more or less. You have a vision. It may be an actual thing, like a book or a building. Or it may be something dynamic that keeps going, like a business or a band. Whatever it is, you have a good idea of what it would look like, once the project is made manifest, that satisfies you. However, you feel stuck from moving toward it. You struggle to see a clear path, and the obstacles between you and the project in its completion keep you from feeling inspired enough to work through an obstacle, or to even begin the project.
The Manifesting Model works to release blocked energy, free up this "stuck" feeling, and inspire you to face your challenges head on, and just go for it! If you are genuinely interested, you may ask me more about the mechanics of this. But I recommend that if you're drawn to it, let's just do it. Typically we would run a MM session after a few clearing sessions, but not necessarily. MM sessions can take 2 hours. Thus, 77 cents for every minute over 90 is added to the $70 session fee (see below). Let's talk and see if a Manifesting Model session is appropriate for where you're at.
$420 in advance gives you the 7th and 8th sessions free, a 25% savings.
Purchase one session at a time, and after 7 sessions (completed inside a maximum
time frame of 12 weeks and a day), the 8th session will be free.
Please, don't hesitate to reach out if any of these sessions resonate with you. Together, we can get you clear. We can keep you tuned up for your continued success. Or, we can get you feeling light and free again, embracing the life you have while continually creating anew.
