Testimonials from HeartThread workshops in California

The following are testimonials collected at the end of a number of workshops in which I taught people how to use the HeartThread on each other. See posts also on http://healingthescars.wordpress.com

Margarita: I really liked that this class was experiential – hands on! Not only was I able to experience HeartThread from the instructor, I was able to practice the technique he taught on others. I feel calm and healed. I am grateful to have been given this gift to heal myself and others!

Grace: The HeartThread work is powerful and deep. At first, my body had resistance and I couldn’t focus, but after Raphael put his hands on me and brought forth affirmations, I began to cry. I had such an intense experience with accepting myself

Jacquelyn: This healing work felt like receiving and giving at the same time. Deeper, deeper to the core it went filling my being.

Andrea: I had no idea what I was in for when I agreed to come today. I have never done anything like this, but boy, I was presently (pleasantly) surprised! I hope I can find a way to integrate this into my life on a regular basis!

Lara: Sometimes you just need to hear important lessons and messages from the outside. Today there were four voices, four filters, passing along messages that, inside me, are harder to hear and remember.

Susan: HeartThread is a unique, very direct, effective and gentle method of healing and helping through love

Ara: I feel very blessed. I feel excited now for my life and now see more connectedly the threads of guidance, love and angelic presence that are giving me the healing to live my life as I reach for the healing within my heart to share with all. I feel expanded and ready to  feel, understand and know more of the truth. It is wonderful to honor the precious gift of this heart listening to i and letting the body and shoulders learn to trust and let go, relax and let love in. Thank you. Hope to grow and know further about this!

Karen: An amazing journey through the Heart space. Raphael gave me messages that resonated with what was happening in my life. Very healing experience

testimonials and photos

I have uploaded a bunch of photos and testimonials from people who attended my last HeartThread workshop in Taos last week I have one more evening planned on the 13th may before i do some traveling. These comments are all from people who have never done HeartThread before, except for one. I start with taking them ijnto HeartThread, then doing two brief demonstrations, then we divide into pairs and take turns to be the practitioner and the client. In a 3 hour session, we manage to each have two turns at being both practitioner and client. At the end I hand out a small index card and ask for their comments and permission to post their photos and comments on my blog. I also ask them to sign a confidentiality agreement at the beginning of the evening. I charge $15 a person and leave 10% at Vista PaZ Taos ( the new version of Taos Peace House) where I hold the meeting.

I recently added some testimonials from people who attended the HeartThread workshops I have been doing in the Taos NM area. They can be seen at http://healingthescars.wordpress.com

I have also been experiencing an amazing increase in connection with the birds up the mountain since doing the HeartThread. The chickadees play with me and eat from my hand and knees when I sit up there. They also have been eating from the hands of people I have brought up there. Here are some pics:

Deep Bliss

I was disappointed my gap session didn’t fill in this morning, and once again, it turned out to be the ideal situation.  My prior client asked to extend her 60 minute massage to 90 minutes while on the table and also said she was interested in the energy work I do.  Since I’ve found HeartThread to mesh so easily and beautifully with my particular brand of bodywork, we included it in the last bit of time.
These surprise “pick-up” sessions are always a joy, and I’m now blissed over the time I have to write about it before my next client arrives, while I’m still in the energy.  (I can tell I’m still deep in it…the ‘unique’ manner of spelling I’ve learned often accompanies my intstant messenger sessions is very prevalent and I find myself making corrections every few words.)
Every time I thought we were “done” another piece would come in and I would relay what her body was telling me.  I keep things in generalities during Heart Thread and don’t ask for clarification, though of course I’m always pleased to hear the phrases that could apply to just about anything mean the world to the one I’ve just relayed them to.
The indescribable sense of compassion and love inherent to this work was strongly present.  Familiar as it’s become from entering so often into this space over the last (almost) two years is still close to overwhelming because when not in it the intensity fades.  (I swear, if we could bottle this no one would ever feel alone and separate again!)  I recognized the magnificence of this amazing human being I was blessed with the opportunity to witness in the moment.  I did not realize the intensity of the work for her until after the session.
Obviously, I can’t go into any sort of detail, and honestly, the personal details aren’t what I want to convey.  The true bliss point for this session was after it was over and this radient supernova of Life and Light told me how the messages relayed to her applied, resonated, and validated to, with, and for her.  “Professionalism” be damned, we hugged, both in joyful tears, having been opened and expanded into the reality of Life and Incarnation past the restrictions of plodding existence.
It didn’t occur to me until after she left, having said to me “you are beautiful and amazing” that there is my learning edge.  I did my usual deflection of the compliment, saying “I just get out of the way.”  She pointed out as others have before (and as I have to others) that doing so is no small feat.  The next time I find myself in such a position, rather than responding, “so are you,” I shall divert from my old pattern.  From this point forward, my response will be, “thank you, I am.  As are you!”
It’s nearly 30 minute since she’s stepped out of my office and into her day, her life, her restored knowledge of herself.  I’m still nearly shivering with the intensity of the gift I received of being with her as she unfolded one of what is clearly many rebirths in her life.  My business is sometimes considered a “service.”  All service should be this life-affirming!  Words simply cannot convey this feeling, and I know my Heart Thread colleagues (and many others) have felt it or something quite similar.
I am currently in such deep gratitude for this work, and honored somehow even deeper than my core to have had the opportunity to learn it.  Truly, the time has come to pass this on, to pay it forward!

1000 Thank Yous!

I’m about to post a chat log at my work blog from an online session I did which started out as Heart Thread and, as is typical for me, incorporated other modalities.

I clearly recognize words and phrases from sessions I’ve received from several of you, and thank everyone involved (those in bodies, and those not) who contributed in bringing me to this point.

Love and Gratitude,
