In this podcast, Heather Fraelick shares her gifts: herself! She is joy, as the meaning of her last name describes, and reminds us all that we are human in process. She discusses her dance career has been an essential part of her life and offerings, being human and feeling, the myth that we are “healed” or “zen” at some point, saying “No” and having healthy boundaries, and how the body talks to us.

Heather has a beautiful gift of talking with our fascia, muscles and body, and teaches this to all those around her. She brings a lightness, joy, and ease in self care of the body, heart and soul.

In essence, Heather brings forth a compassionate, listening ear to each session, workshop, or circle, and enjoys helping clients empower themselves on their road to recovery!

It’s time to LOVE your voice, become fully self - expressed and show yourself the deepest form of self - love: Living Your Truth shamelessly and wildly. Simply Being YOU.

On my 35th birthday, I felt this message move through me - a message that gives me life and purpose.

Listen in on my realistic inspiration to you about **bringing yourself to life**. How essential it is that you share your specific desires and gifts, validate yourself, and be fully in your being!

Of course, I know that it’s not that simple...Enjoy this encouraging note to be gentle, yet fierce in acknowledging the self - betrayal, hiding, and facades you may carry, death and how it forces the acknowledgement of life, and what would be a life worth living for. Also, I share some personal stories of challenges with being myself, fear, and hiding.

Appreciate and give yourself the birth of YOU (the TRUE YOU).

In this episode, Beth Lynch shares with me her journey to Roots and Wings, not just her own energy work practice, but in herself- how she continues to unfold who she is in her life, her challenges, and her joys. Learn a few energy work practices that she teaches most commonly and what energy work can do for you. Beth and I connected instantly the first time we met and we have been colleagues and friends since. I truly admire her light, magical, and joyful energy that she brings in every movement and word.

Beth Lynch, RN, APN is an Eden Energy Medicine Certified Practitioner, Eden Energy Medicine Authorized Instructor, with a commitment to supporting and empowering you on your own journey to heal, evolve and optimize wellness through energy work. Working with your energy systems can help find your physical, emotional or spiritual blocks or ‘sticking points’ that may be holding you back from fulfillment in yourself and in your life.

Beth began her journey in the health field as a nurse with holistic roots. Beth always felt that there was 'something more' she had to offer in the healing field. She followed her heart into Energy Medicine and is so grateful for the awareness and alignment she feels in her life. She loves the study and exploration of the traditions and science of Energy Medicine and interacting with the language of the energies. Her comprehensive training in Energy Medicine allowed her to ‘fill in the gaps’ of conventional medicine, opening up to a wider view of caring for the body, mind, and spirit.

Beth is passionate about working with women’s health, heart and empowerment issues to help allow more flow, health, and ease into your life. She also loves working with kids groups. She is married and the mother of three beautiful and spirited children and lives the labyrinth nature of being a parent. A few things she loves are kindness, connection to others, yoga, the fresh feeling of being outside in nature spending time with family, friends and of course their Bernese Mountain Dog.

In this episode, I talk about Family Constellations Healing, how it works and how it can support profound transformation. I guide you through three powerful Constellations Exercises that can bring you deeper awareness and healing as well as share stories from the Movie Coco and personal experience to illustrate examples of the impact of the lineage on one’s life.

Family or Systemic Constellations illuminate the internalized images of our inner dynamics and can intuitively show us where our current life challenges may have a previous context in your ancestry’s losses.

Ancestral healing work can restore and access the love and strength that is innate, build your capacity to feel and experience everything and strengthen your ability to use your body’s wisdom and knowledge.
