This is what happened for me!

First, mark your calendar with these dates and call me to register....this is some good stuff!

Workshop: DOWSING 101 ~ Explore the earth energies with Krista Polinsky
April 23, 6pm - 9pm and April 24, 9:30am - 4:30pm

At A Place of Healing ~ Wallingford, CT
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here is what happened - Yesterday, Krista came over and did a clearing of my home and property. I didn't know what to expect, but immediately I felt a shift in both my home and within myself. Most of you know I am an energy worker and sensitive to energies not seen with the eye. I was amazed at what Krista was able to pick up using the dowsing rod and her intuition. She confirmed some challenges I'd been having, picked up on energies in and around my house - both metaphysical and geographical from now, previous occupants, and visitors! After asking a series of questions, she cleared what was ready to be cleared. I feel lighter already!!

It was neat to observe my cat Lily follow us around the whole time - cats naturally help release negative energy (she is an amazing cat! - just sayin') and then she spent about an hour laying outside in an area that needed some extra clearing. I knew when Krista left yesterday it would be an historical day... I'm excited to see what else begins to shift in my life.

Krista is an Energy Medicine Pracitioner and Feng Shui Consultant. During the clearing she also suggested some Feng Shui adjustments to help the flow of chi in my home. I FEEL the changes we made already! Last night I slept like a baby and woke with a feeling I just can't find words for at this moment...but, I want you to feel this way too!!

Join us in this workshop and learn how you can do this for you, your home, and your property and experience the shifts in and around you.

Krista says "In essence, dowsing is a tool for helping us to expand our awareness of what exists beyond the naked eye, it’s a means to uncover and release that with which keeps us from expressing our own unique essence in the world".

In this weekend workshop you will begin learning how to locate geopathic and metaphysical disturbances in the environment and ultimately how to bring more balance back into the space. You will learn techniques on how to use a L-rod and a pendulum to locate and clear these energies. Feeling 'off' or out of balance and not sure why? Ready to release what is holding you back and express your uniqueness? Come to the workshop and know you'll get exactly what you need and intend for.

Register today and receive discounted pricing of $188, after April 16th $209. Or join with a friend and receive an additional discount! This is an incredible price for a weekend workshop where you'll leave with knowledge and tools to help you create shifts in your energy and home.

Self-Care: Dry Skin Brushing

Dry Skin Brushing has been used for hundreds of years to boost the lymph system and remove dead skin cells from the body without removing the protective oils. Stimulation of circulation and lymphatic system are 2 of the “hidden” benefits. Lymphatic fluid contains waste material, and when this system becomes sluggish the results can be seen in the form of cellulite, dull complexion and poor skin tone. The backup of toxins in the lymphatic fluid puts extra stress on the other organs responsible for elimination. When dead skin cells are removed, the skin can function more effectively as an eliminative organ. It speeds up the internal cleansing of the body and reduces the stress to kidneys, lungs, and colon, which also assists in the elimination of waste (our skin is the largest elimination organ we have). 

The technique of skin brushing is easy, yet important. Each stroke should be firm, yet gentle and always brush toward the heart (avoid rashes or broken skin).  It is okay to improvise for your own satisfaction, just remember to work toward your heart. Before the bath or shower, while you are dry, massage your body using a dry bath brush (don't wet it). Follow with a bath or shower to rinse away the dead cells leaving softer, smoother skin.

I start at my feet and with long strokes I work my way up covering all areas of my body.  The areas above my heart I start at the top of my neck and stroke downward - again toward my heart.  Take extra care when brushing under the armpits and upper thighs as this is an area where the lymphatic ducts become clogged.  Areas that should not be brushed are nipples, and genitals. Be gentle on the face – there are smaller brushes specific for the face.

Benefits:
 Tightens the skin and improves texture providing a firm, toned appearance
 Aids digestion
 Helps remove cellulite
 Stimulates circulation to the skin
 Increases oxygenation
 Increases cell renewal
 Drains and cleanses the entire lymphatic system
 Detoxifies the entire body
 Removes dead skin layers creating beautiful, glowing skin
 Strengthens the immune system
 Improves exchange between cells
 Reflexive stimulation of the glands
 Stimulates dry skin oil production

It is really worth the short time it takes.  I've seen and felt the benefits of regular dry skin brushing - my skin is soft, smooth, and I can feel my heart pumping and my blood flowing. 
What a lovely act of self-care you can do for yourself in just minutes a day.
