Case Histories

8 01 2020

Being the conduit for healing requires that the practitioner let go of the desire to follow up.  The healing has to stand on it’s own. That healing belongs to the recipient. I often tell clients to ask their questions immediately, if they have them. Oddly, despite having a good memory, I won’t remember the session  after a short time later. I also say that I am not a therapist. I have no intention of repeated sessions.

I was recently asked to provide case histories for some of my past clients in order to track efficacy of the healing work.  This created a challenge to me.  I understand that such information is important and especially helpful to people unfamiliar with this work. I am currently working on this project. I’m changing the names and checking carefully to be sure to respect the individuals. Perhaps I will share some stories with you, my audience. My question to you is, would that be helpful?





2020 Hope and Wishes

1 01 2020

Dear Friends,

Happy New Year. Every December and January for years I’ve looked back to see what what I might want to give my energy to in the coming year. Not as a New Years Resolution but as a reminder that where and how I use my energy is a choice. A friend use to say “if you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.”

After a couple years overshadowed by the losses of my Mother and Step Mother, I realize I haven’t posted on my blog. So, this is the official annoucment of my intent to return to the blogosphere.

My first message of this 2020 is LOVE yourself. Love, especially, the parts of yourself that you wish to hide. They need it the most. Don’t allow negative self talk to diminish your precious energy. We can do so much when we accept, with love, all the darkness we find inside ourselves. Give yourself the forgiveness you would give to your most precious child.

I’m excited to say, I will be writing again soon.

Treasure yourself,

Linda





Help for Veterans with PTSD, Wounds, or Amputations

19 12 2017

New Years has always been a time of review and planning for me. This year is no exception, though perhaps, I am more than ever drawn to those things which I am most passionate about.

At the moment that is the plight of our service men and woman coming home with PTSD, wounds or amputations. While they receive medical assistance, their spiritual needs are sometimes unmet.

I want to make it known to a larger number of people that I offer free shamanic healing to these folks when they find their way to me. All too often people come to me only after they have tried every other possibility they could think of.

Here is an excerpt from an abstract describing the results of a research project investigating the efficacy of shamanic healing for PTSD published in the Journal of Science and Healing: “Although participants described physical changes, three times as much text was devoted to changes in self-awareness, capacity for coping, improvement in relationships, and taking better care of themselves. Their experience describes a process of transformation.”

If you or someone you know needs this help, please contact me.





Healer Mentoring

19 11 2017

To all you wonderful healers out there, thank you for your work.

And all you beginning healers, maybe healers, or sort of wondering if you are healers, please be open to the possibility. This world need you!

Are you a burned out healer or a healer who is transitioning to a new stage in your healing practice?, Do you need someone to work through the process with?

I mentor a lot of healers, on various paths. I respect all paths and often say, “one water, many wells.”  I have no interest in branding my work or finding disciples. After more than 30 years doing this work I have experience, perspective, and a desire to help.

This work can be done face-to-face or over the phone.

Please email me if you would like to know more: lindanadeau33@gmail.com

 





Shamanic Classes for the New Year

19 11 2017

Dear Friends,

I am sorry to have been away so long. I hope you are still out there and that things are going well for you. A few kind folks have been reminding me that I promised some events. The first of the new year seems like a good time to begin.  I have planned:

  • Beginning shamanic journeying on Saturday,  January 6, 2018 from 8:00 to 5:00.
  • Extraction Healing the following Saturday, January 13, 2018 from 8:00 to 5:00.

The fee is $100 per class for $160 for both, payable in advance.  Please email me for more information. This will also allow me to take a count to select a suitable venue. If it is a small group we can do it here at my home, otherwise I will rent a larger space.

Please let me know other interests you may have. I am open to sharing some of what I have learned in the last 32 years exploring this path.

Also, please share this with anyone you think might be interested. Since I closed my meetup group this is the only place I am posting this information.
