The Language of the Soul & Satsang
With the Language of the Soul, a teaching founded on years of personal and professional experience, you can truly discover how when our story is surrendered, what truly dies is everything we are not, and what comes to life is who we really are – magnificence itself.
Ancestral Healing & Family Constellations
Keen and finely tuned High Sense Perception (Psychic Sight) gives Shavasti the ability to see the auric field, your chakras and any entanglements you may have with one or more members of your immediate family or ancestral lineage. As a trained and experienced energy healer he will gently guide you towards resolution and a deeper discovery of who you really once free of the bondage on ancestral wounding.
Relational Chakra Cord Healing
Whether or not we are conscious of it, each of us have cords that run between our chakras and the chakras of family members, ancestors, children, friends, colleagues, lovers, former spouses etc. Essentially, everyone we have a relationship with, whether current, in the past or a more ‘remote’ relationship such as a great grandparent we may never have met.
Often in day to day language many make use of the expression ‘no strings attached’ – Chakra Cords are precisely what this expression alludes to and in reality, there are always ‘strings attached’.
Many of our Relational Chakra Cords are healthy and we need to maintain them, however, some are not healthy and can be invasive. Invasive chakras cords can have the power to impose beliefs and lifestyles upon us and even directly affect our physical health.
With Relational Chakra Cord Healing we are able to clear the unhealthy bonds and transform them into positive love bonds.
Astral Healing & Shamanic Healing
When we’ve experience emotional or physical trauma, a lot of stress, long term illness, depression or shock in our lives our energy filed can become filled with heavy energies that weigh us down or make it difficult for us to ‘rise and shine’. In addition, as humans we tend to ‘lose’ a part of ourselves with each trauma we experience and our zest for life or the ability to hold or attract relationships can be diminished.
Astral & Shamanic Healing can involve Soul Retrieval, Entity Removal, removal of Astral Objects, clearing and cleaning the astral level of the human energy field and direct chakra work to restructure where trauma has affected the proper functioning of a chakra.
