Being an Empath -- the gifts and woes.

What is an Empath? According to the American Empath Association: “An Empath is someone who understands the mental or emotional states of others in a way that defies conventional science and psychology. Empaths have the ability to sense the feelings, thoughts, and energies of people, plants, animals, places, or objects. In addition to sensing, Empaths absorb the energy of those around them. Empaths often experience stress or illness if they are bombarded by too many negative emotions. Empaths can also use their abilities to help others by imagining themselves in someone else’s situation and connecting with them on a deep level.”

There are benefits to being an empath. They can be great friends to have, because they are great listeners! They have big hearts and love to help those in need. Empaths are emotionally attuned and very intuitive. They can read the energy of a room, they can detect dishonesty a mile away, and are very connected to nature. We have an innate ability to know what other people need and want.

There are also some down sides to being an empath. An empath can often feel drained after spending time with people, and it can be difficult to say no or to create boundaries with others. Because empaths have a tendency to feel what their family or friends are going through, they can often be overwhelmed by painful emotions, such as fear or negative emotions.

Empaths are usually introverted, so they require a lot more alone time that most people. It is important for them to recharge their energy on a daily basis to prevent exhaustion or a healing crisis. Recharging could be a relaxing bath, a walk in nature, meditating, reading, and just alone time.

Empaths and sensitive people can be triggered by numerous things like: Crowds, loud noises, constant chatter, scary movies, seeing a traumatic event, strong smells, chemicals, artificial lighting, certain tones, and repetitive noises.

Does this sound like you? Would you like to attract like minded people who understand your unique way of life? It is refreshing to connect to others who understand what you need, and who are not offended by your knowing, or boundaries that you have created. Your unique gift and skills are needed in this world. You are here to heal others and to be a role model for the increased number of empaths and intuitives!

I love empowering other empaths to step into their power! Schedule an Intuitive Healing session to clear any blocks you may have around your divine path!

Learn how to Manifest with ThetaHealing®!

If you had everything you ever dreamed of, what would that look like? Who is in this dream of yours? Are you a millionaire, do you have two homes, do you have a large yacht, or are you an artist who is well renowned?

What is the last thing that you manifested for yourself? Did it come to you easily, or did it take longer than you had hoped? Every statement, thought, and action is reflected by what we are manifesting in our lives.

According to Vianna Stibal, the founder of ThetaHealing®, “Just talking about things will sometimes manifest things into your life, and the chances of this happening are about 30-40%, visualizing increases your chances nearer to 50%. But a Theta State increases the manifestations enormously, to about 80-90%.” Yes, you read that right, just going up and connecting to The Creator of All That Is, will increase your manifestation!

Want to know HOW to do this for yourself?

  • In order to manifest, you must first decide what it is you want in your life.

  • Know what you want, word for word, every detail.

  • Be specific and ask that it comes to you in the highest and best way.

  • When you manifest you state it, or write it down as if “I have this now.”

When we manifest we are giving our subconscious things to work on, and our subconscious likes to work on many things at once! So, make a list of 5 or more items, the more the better!

An example of this is: “I own my own business selling furniture, and I am receiving $100,000 per year or MORE. I have a manager who is in my highest and best, who wants to help me generate business. I own my own warehouse, and I have 10 employees who all respect me.” You could go on and on with specific details around this.

Be aware that there may be blocks on some level concerning what you want to manifest. If your manifestations do not come into reality, the reason may be a program on the Core, Genetic, History, or Soul Levels.

So, in the above example, this person could have a CORE belief since early childhood from his parents of something like, “you will never own your own business, your not smart enough.” This would have to be pulled and resolved so that his manifestations would become a reality.

In ThetaHealing®, we dig to find the bottom program, and we replace with positive beliefs.

How to prepare for a ThetaHealing® Session


Are you new to energy work?   The ThetaHealing® technique has been used to address a wide variety of physical and emotional issues.

Here are a few tips on what to expect, and how to prepare for your session with me. 

It is helpful to be in a comfortable setting, without distractions, or a lot of noise.  Be HYDRATED- We will be using muscle testing during our session, and being hydrated will help your answers to be clear and strong.

We will be coming together via phone in a meditative state, and I will be connecting to your energy, with your permission. Then I will ask what it is you would like to work on. Or, if you have nothing specific to work on, I might be ask, “If you could change anything in your life right now, what would it be?”

My role, as ThetaHealer®, is to hold a sacred and safe space for you.  I help to set the direction for the healing, to be the observer/witness of the change in a non-judgmental way, and to support  you in understanding and releasing the pattern of beliefs and programs.  During the Theta session, we are connected to The Creator, and the Creator does the healing.  The Creator of All That Is - is the spirit that intertwines and binds all things in existence.  ThetaHealing® is not a religion, we are open and accepting to all religions. 

Showing up with a positive attitude and intention of being ready, willing, and wanting positive change is essential to healing.  Remember that you are the co-creator of your life.

The duration of a ThetaHealing® session is usually between 1/2 hour and 2 hours, and the number of sessions required depends on the issue you would like to work on. A lot of work can be covered in a short amount of time with the ThetaHealing® technique. The amount of sessions needed, will vary from person to person on what they want to accomplish. Many times clients will experience a shift within one session, however sometimes the belief systems around the issue are more complex and need deeper belief work done over a few sessions to achieve their desired change.

To determine how many sessions you will need ahead of time would really depend on the negative subconscious belief systems attached to your issue and how fast they reprogram into positive and empowering ones.

I look forward to witnessing your healings with you!
