List of Services:
Everything is energy vibrating at a particular frequency, including your thoughts and your belief systems. Theta healing is a remarkable energy healing modality that allows reshaping of the energy holding your subconscious and conscious patterns in place that are no longer serving you. This reshaping serves a dual purpose:
1) It can facilitate an opening to help clear the old stuff that is no longer needed
2) It creates a beautiful energetic space for the things you desire (in theta we call these “downloads” as we are able to instantly transmit desired feelings, information, and beliefs into your psyche)
