ShinJiro HolisicAkashic Healing

We each have our own place in the Akashic Field -- one as healer and one as recipient of healing light. The Akasha is a place where light and sound combine and the essence of our truth resides. ShinJiro (celesstial chi) brings balance to the vibration of the union of spirit, soul and human self. We work in the first level with multiple concepts of union -- on of which is the facilitating alignment of divine masculine and Divine Feminine -- to bring the highest levels of usefulness in physical reality of both the presence of action and love. Through symbols, hand placements and additional chakras there is a connecting of the work we do in energetic form with the powerful healing space within the Akashic Record. The beings of light that reside within the Akasha will be helping you as you work with your clients. The akasha is here to help you in the creation of the self-realization of a future, in which your purpose as a healer is expressed and fulfilled. The memories of who you have been, in past lives, as a healer and the recognition of who you will be is stored in the Akashic Record which Brings us each to the ultimate truth -- our oneness with source enegy.

Finding Your ClairEssence

Examining the Intutitve Senses

Audio Download Class

  • How is it that intuitives, receive information? Through the Clair-Essences -- Clairaudience, Clairvoyance, Clairsentience etc. etc.
  • Can anyone do this? We all have intuition we often just don't recognize it or perhaps don't realize what is happening. Or are afraid of what might come to us so we keep ourselves in the dark. With knowledge we loose the fear aspect, gain perspective and with practice we gain skill.
  • Every insight given through intuition is here to support us and help us to be happy and free from struggle.
  • Why would I want to take this class? When you become more aware of the ways that information coming from your intuitive self -- you will become more aware and develop receptivity.
  • What will we learn through the class (download)? I will discribe each clair-essence and how it works. Examples will be given and simple developmental exercises offered.

Lodestar Akasha Class - Unlock Your True Potential

An Akashic Reading is the exploration of the souls’ signature vibration. When working with a practitioner the two of you interact with the energy of the your records – you both enter a sacred space where you become aware of the energetic patterns of your thoughts, words and actions; our interactions with the all of creation.

Together we find ways to become aware of ourselves through the language of issues and experiences. An Akashic Reading can shift beliefs and create healing in the emotional, mental and physical body. The study of quantum physics explains scientifically what spiritual explorers have known forever – our energy follows a path toward that which we focus upon – to heal we must refocus our attention – the shifting of this energy through exploration in the Akashic Record can move us more easily into a new alignment with our True Self.

All that has been written upon the Akasha – has been placed there by our souls, waiting for us to use its presence as a vehicle to see ourselves as the limitless beings we have always been.

An Akashic Records class is a journey into self discovery. A deep - solid expansion of your own intuitive awareness. Developing skills to recognize and trust your connection with the guidance offered by your own True Self.  Awaken to spiritual awareness – inner peace - release blockages to happiness - resolve inner and outer conflict - understand relationships.

Class consists of full day  -  a Unique approach to working with the Ascended Masters and the Angels of healing light -- an attunement (opening to the energy of the records), practice with others in your records & theirs.

Cost $300.00 -- Prepayment and preregistration required. For more information contact Colleen by phone or email below. Clair-Essence Audio Class and Essential Base Knowledge of the Akashic Records Audio Class included.

Testimonial -

Thank you for your workshop. I feel like I gained so much confidence in my ability to see. It was so helpful going into each other's records and then you commenting along the way, like a narration along with the museum tour. Thanks again for your great mix of left and right brain presentation. I really enjoyed your workshop style. Much warmth, Adina

2 months after class .... I feel like you have given me the last piece of faith in this type of work that I needed to truly believe and stop second guessing.  I have been doing  a fair amount of Akashic Readings ... It has gone very well, with some great validation during the actual readings and after. I really feel that after the Akashic Workshop with you, I just believe, period. There is something about you that seems so normal and spiritually connected at the same time. This is the kind of role model that suited my one last need  - "I can be normal and spiritually connected at the same time." The amount of time you spent discussing this topic was really invaluable for me. Thanks again, Adina

Nearly a year after class ... Things are continuing to open in magical way for me, life is lovely and I feel held and guided by so much strength and clarity. Adina

everyday life and the work we do in the world
