Transforming your Life - From the Inside Out

More information about The Art of Transformation course I offer over a ten week period. 

It is your mind that creates the world.
— The Buddha

Would you like to have simple and direct ways of accessing your creative genius, inner wisdom and divine inspiration whenever you needed to? 

Wouldn't it be helpful to know where your clarity, peace of mind and happiness actually come from? And what causes them to disappear? 

Imagine how liberating it would be to discover a way to rapidly and effortlessly be free of old limiting beliefs from your past that still affect your present circumstances so they no further have a hold over you?

On this course you will discover how your mind works to create the everyday reality of your life from the inside out. When you see the truth of this for yourself, an inner clarity and freedom begins to emerge and you start to notice how life seems to be flowing with you rather than against you. Realizing this is like discovering the master key that’s lain out of your reach until now - without having to 'work on' specific problems.

You will begin to: 

  • Go with the flow
  • be led by a sense of wonder and curiosity
  • experience more creative inspiration, inner peace and harmony
  • feel inspired and full of energy and enthusiasm
  • live from a place of deep gratitude
  • trust in your inner knowing & intuition
  • enjoy happiness through simply ‘being’
  • gain a greater sense of purpose and fulfillment
  • be filled with a sense of wonder and curiosity
  • lead from the heart not the head
  • have a positive impact on the world
  • quit doing too much and trying too hard
  • let go of struggling and striving
  • Eliminate stress
  • Connect with your life's passion
  • Release destructive beliefs and old habit patterns
  • Increase efficiency & productivity - achieve more with less effort 
  • Enjoy freedom from anxiety, fear and other life-sapping emotions
  • Relax and enjoy your life now, not in some imaginary future  

These benefits, and many more besides arise quite naturally as positive side-effects of becoming more aligned with your own true nature and by tapping into your creative genius. 

 Below are some of the premises that The Art of Transformation is based upon:

  • The only truly lasting and effective way to enhance your life in the outer world is to transform your inner world so that you are living as an expression of your true innate nature which is naturally joyful, abundant and limitless.
  • When transformation occurs on the inner planes our outer life effortlessly aligns to provide you with all manner of amazing manifestations of abundance. This is a spiritual law that the Universe obeys at all times ~ as above so below!
  • It is our thoughts that create our reality ~ discover how to change our thoughts and the rest will take care of itself.
  • We have the wholeness, wisdom, divine presence, peace of mind, creativity, love, happiness and well-being that we seek already inside us ~ we just need to uncover its existence and allow it to radiate.
  • Uncovering these aspects of our innate nature may be easier than you think ~ in fact when we take ‘left brain thinking’ out of the equation and allow ‘right brain being’ and ‘no-thing-to-do’ to lead the way an effortlessness comes in that is quite delightful.
  • It is never too late to transform your life ~ as you transform your thoughts so the past and future have less hold on you as you move into the abundance of living moment to moment in the bountiful present.

The old paradigm tells us to believe that life happens to us, but new metaphysics and science is now telling us that in fact life is being created inside each and every one of us, all the time! What this gifts us with is also the information with which to master our own lives….instead of being tossed around in the ocean of life experience like little boats we now have the ability to understand that we can manipulate life and transform it into the kind of life experiences we want. It has now become our choice as to what kind of ocean of life we would like to experience…..the calm peaceful waters or the thrill and excitement of a choppy sea. No longer are we to feel a victim to life. There is a way to gain mastery….to become the captain of our own ship!

This course is based on two powerful truths that ancient wisdom teachings have laid out throughout the ages that 1.)what you are looking for whether it be more joy, happiness, peace or love already exists inside you and that 2.) no-one else's advice or guidance will ever be as valuable as your own genuine insight that comes to you from within.

This course offers you unique opportunities to connect with your own inner wisdom, inspiration, and creativity.  Through unique exercises, activities and guided visualization just the right synergy and optimum conditions are created that will allow you to connect with your own inner resources. What’s more these moments of clarity usually come in just an instant and we will show you why and how to repeat them at will.

 If you reflect on the significant life decisions, realizations, creative moments and transformational breakthroughs you’ve have experienced in your life thus far you may have noticed that the deepest transformations are always ones that come experientially (often unexpectedly too!) and they always happen inside of yourself. Such transformations are often as a result of taking ourselves outside our usual comfort zones, whether it be through the vehicle of the intellect or through an emotional or physical experience life has challenged us with. The gifts and lessons that come from these experiences are frequently life changing, showing us inner resources we didn’t know we had ~ and can only be discovered for ourselves.

Would you like to embark on an intentional journey of transformation guided gently and expertly along the way? Surprises are guaranteed, along with lots of fun, laughter and illumination.

This course will provide you with the tools to:

  • Gain understanding of the universal age old principles that underpin all of life’s experiences, giving you the freedom to master your own life through consciously transformation
  • Eliminate those things you don’t want to show up in your life, and increase the manifestation of those you do!
  • Uncover old limiting beliefs, and hidden unconscious patterns that have acted like silent saboteurs and blocked you from creating the life you truly want ~ until now!
  • Learn simple, gentle and effective methods to transform your life!

The next Art of Transformation course will unfold over 10 weeks commencing October 11th and ending December 13th consisting of the following elements:

  • 2 hour group gatherings (Every Thursday evening) to be held at Liza’s home
  • weekly topics include; prayer of intention, changing old beliefs, dealing with emotions, gratitude, constellation work, body, mind, spirit, communing with nature, and final celebration!
  • Coaching support in the form of email/phone calls providing extra inspiration and should you need extra encouragement, or feel stuck in between sessions we are available to help support you in your process
  • Home study exercises to keep the forward momentum and transformational energy flowing
  • All relevant course materials

Preregistration is required. 

How long until Health and Wellness?

When we're unwell, many of us ask this simple question: How long will it take for me to return to health and wellness? Everyone is an individual and we all have very different personality types and approaches to life.

As a general rule of thumb the more dynamic a person you are, the more motivated and less afraid of emotional catharsis you are then the faster you will experience changes and shifts towards the health and wellness you desire. The longer you have had a physical condition or been suffering from emotional difficulties the longer it will take for you to return to health and wellness - simply because all the habitual patterns of behavior, thought, beliefs, along with stuck emotions, become more and more entrenched over time and will need more time to peel away. My approach is to be guided by you, the client - this is your healing journey and it needs to be at a pace that you are comfortable with. My philosophy is the opposite of no pain no gain! So often the reason why we have created disease in our bodies or are suffering from emotional conflict is to protect ourselves in someway from something or some life experience that has been too harsh, painful and overwhelming so it is vitally important that as we are taking steps to heal old wounds we be very gentle and respectful towards the old armoring that has just been trying to protect us. The more gently we can go the better and you will be the best judge of the pace you need. My role is just to facilitate your healing journey, to support and encourage you and shine the light on the truth of who you really are. 

Family Constellation Workshop

Family Constellation is a unique way to gain deeper understanding of any issue we may have. Without being aware of it sometimes we carry issues that are not ours, issues that instead originated generations ago within our family line. Often when an issue remains unresolved despite our efforts to overcome it the solution can often be found by looking through a Constellation at what has been energetically passed down from one generation to the next. The unseen driving forces behind our issues often have their roots in our family of origin and are often linked to entanglements and unconscious loyalties to our ancestors whether dead or alive. Once these are brought to light in the unique way that a Constellation offers these unhealthy attachments and loyalties can be released and love can begin to flow in healthy ways again.....harmony being established once again to both seeker and their extended family system. This work is profound and touches not just ourselves on the deepest levels of the soul but ripples out to affect all our ancestors in beneficial and healing ways. Constellations are not limited to just personal family of origin issues, any issue can be illuminated through this unique method of inquiry ranging from relationship, health, trauma, nature, and even business issues. I am offering an introductory evening explaining what Family Constellation work Saturday evening for anyone who is curious to know more and there will also be a live demonstration of a couple of constellations as well.

Accident Trauma Removed with EFT

Barbara came to see me 7 weeks after her terrible accident at the local ski hill when she lacerated her liver, punctured a lung and broke ribs after hitting a tree at high speed. Her major injuries had healed but she was still suffering from scar tissue preventing her from taking a full breath, was physically and emotionally exhausted and hadn't been sleeping well at all. 

When she walked slowly into my office the first thing that hit me immediately was that she was still in shock. She was holding herself in a very guarded protective manner and it was obvious to me her whole body was still vibrating with the frequency of shock and trauma. There is an immense energy of vulnerability and fragility that radiates from a person who is traumatized and so often this trauma gets locked into the body in a frozen response which continues until the orginal tramatic event can be released. 

My homeopathic training taught me to always look for the root cause of whatever a person presents with symptom wise. For Barbara the trauma was obvious....made worse by the necessary medical intervention she had experienced in the aftermath of her accident. Morphine for pain control, x rays, cat scan, chest tube, antibiotics and 3 days of being strapped to a hard board (very claustrophobic) all added to the tramatic load on her mind, body and spirit. 

She described her nervous system as "jangling" and she felt unusually insecure and needy. Normally able to sleep well she had been having trouble falling asleep and then once asleep she was waking lots. Her appetite was not back either "nothimg tasted right". 

Where to start? prescribing homeopathic remedy arnica for physical trauma and aconite for emotional shock. Thios was given to dissolve scar tissue and pulsatilla, nux vom and chelidonium were given to support her liver both in its recovery from the trauma and to help with detoxing from all the meds. I also gave her coffea, passiflora and valerian in homeopathic potency to help soothe her nervous system and help restore her sleep.

But before she left I was keen to release some of her original trauma using EFT. The emotional freedom technique has had remarkable results with vietnam war veterians suffering from PTSD flushing out 30 years of flashbacks where nothing else had helped. Using a technique called rolling back the camera I asked Barbara to recall what she remembered just prior to the accident and to let me know as soon as she noticed any emotional charge. We then did a round of tapping (tapping on specific meridian points whilst focusing on the emotion or thought) on each layer of emotion that she recalled. It was astonishing to see how many layers of intense emotion were literally packed into what could only have been seconds from the point where she realised something bad was going to happen to when she hit the tree. Evidence that time does indeed slow down at times of extreme truama. One after the other we peeled away the layers.....fear, helplessness, vulnerabilty to name but a few. We kept on going until she was completely emptied out, until she could recall those few moments without any emotional charge at all. She felt exhausted and tired but in a different way to since the accident. It takes an awful lot of energy to contain so much trauma and once we'd given her mind body and spirit permission to switch off the fight and flight button she could finally begin to let go and relax. I had a feeling she was going to sleep really really well that night.

A few days later I was astonished to almost completely walk past her in the street ~ I didn't recognise her as the same person who slowly shuffled into my office! She was looking bright eyed and bushy tailed and was walking with a relaxed posture and a big smile on her face! The shock and trauma had completely gone. She reported having gone home and gone straight to bed and slept like a log all night long! Yeah!! And in the days that followed she really felt she was finally turning the corner and more like her old self again. Her sleep had improved and she no longer felt she needed to guard and protect her body anymore. She was delighted.

It was my turn to be in shock!!! And happy to be so impressed with how effective EFT is in removing old trauma for people fast and permanently.

(Many thanks to Barbara Ulrich who gave me permission to share her success story with you) 

Pain released after 40 years

The following was written by Laurel B, a Munay Holistics client. 

The Journey -  a powerful process that is helping me survive the loss of my old life and leading me towards a new one.  I am not through the tunnel yet.

My life seemed perfect as 2011 began:  what I thought was a perfect marriage, loving husband, beautiful child, successful career.   

True – I have always had emotional problems and struggled with anxiety, worry, and an unexplainable apprehension.   But I recognized how lucky I was to have such a loving family, financial security, and good health.  And spring 2011 was very happy.  Then things began to shift.  Messengers of change and light began appearing in my life, childhood losses and pain began to surface, and my emotional state began to change.  Tears were a constant part of my consciousness.   I tried the journey as an academic experiment, as one of many attempts to understand what was happening.

The first journey brought me to the core of anger from my childhood, at the injustices of childhood prejudice and intimidation and bullying that had shaped my fear of the world and my low self esteem.   The next day I felt as if a huge weight had been lifted from me, but the tears remained.  Anger began to surface and move through me as if my entire world was falling to pieces, but I couldn’t explain why.  4 days later I caught my husband of 14 years in an affair.  He turned physically and emotionally abusive, and left our home.  The next few months my emotional state worsened in an odd way.  Rather than anger at my husband, I felt an overwhelming panic and fear, hysteria at the thought of him being gone.  Having grown up without a father, I was consciously completely comfortable with the “one parent” home, and couldn’t understand where the panic was coming from. 

When I reached a point of being unable to control the hysteria I went to try another Journey,  desperate to find a solution.     

What happened was unexpected and almost beyond verbal description.  The abandonment of my husband became the death of my father when I was 6 years old.  I lived the panic, the hysteria that I did not express as a child, held in safety by my Journey mentor and Loving Spirit Liza.   My father was released from the binds that had held him here for 40 years.  I said goodbye.  

The panic, fear, hysteria disappeared instantaneously.  The gloom and shadow that has covered me my entire life is no longer here.   Now all I feel is the appropriate grief and sadness at the loss of my husband and marriage.  Even the desperate financial situation is causing only minor concern.  Happiness hasn’t arrived in my life, not yet.  But I am now walking through a perfectly explainable grief pattern experiencing appropriate reactions and clarity of emotions.

With each successive Journey old tragedies and wounds are being healed and I am awakening to realize that there is a beautiful future in store for me.  

I don’t think that there is a way to predict what you will uncover during a Journey into the inner place in your body and soul – but the pure love that exists there can be trusted to heal you and set you on a path to the beautiful life you were created to live.

Happy Abundant 2012!

I want to wish everyone a very happy new year ~ this big year of so much anticipation! 2012 is here at last. A time of prophesy, of east and west coming together, of the potential for us all to consciously co-create the life we want.....for ourselves personally but also most essentially one that is in harmony with Pachamama, Mother Earth, Gaia. We are the change we've been waiting to see in the world!
