"I'll take you on a healing journey. I'll listen to you with my heart. Listen to your feelings and words that you have never been listened before. I'll listen to you as the angels singing their songs in the breath of time. I will be your beholder and witness of your "love and hate, joy and sorrow, beauty and ugliness....Until the wings in your heart begin to unfold and your cup overflows.
I believe everyone has the birth right to grow, and to live a life of fullness. You have the power to turn your life experiences around....transforming stones and rocks into gold and precious jewels.
I'll be the container of your wounds until you begin to spread your own wings or grow stronger legs to walk, fly and play as you listen to your own internal music of life.
I'll be your cheer leader for your hidden desire in life and allow you to draw forth your closed off sounds....to hear your own music of life. Then you will gently hold to the emerging "Light" and to the sounds of sunrise coming through the veins of your own being - the merge of life's creation."
