Lomi Lomi wows!!!

Another few weeks have gone by and I am so amazed by the incredible people I am blessed to work with for Lomi Lomi. Someone ready to tap into a new part of themselves, see themselves in a different way, and experience something new and profound about the world around them.

I recently had a client tell me what happened for them after a session that reminded me of how that happened to me too!!! Super cool.
It came down to not being able to distinguish the boundaries of their body/skin with the room around them, including the music, the air, the warmth of the heat. And a bit of a revelation that they weren't as solid as they thought they were.  That they really were energy! (A bit disorienting, but ultimately okay with some deep process work.)

I know, "WTF??" right? Well, this can actually happen. This infinite feeling of being at one with everything: the air, the sounds,  humanity, the universe.

When this happened to me, I remember just feeling so free. No boundaries at all. Experiencing this crazy conscious connection with everything. Trees, food, rocks, rain... Even with my clothes when I put them back on.
Perhaps daily meditation, plant ceremony, and drug use as a teenager prepared me for this experience as it just felt right and didn't freak me out.

I didn't feel my ego or personality fighting for its place in life right then. I was just being!
What a divine encounter within and without. To just be without ego and persona. Just me. Being with authentic self, and in alignment with everything else.

Your Lomi Lomi awaits you...

Your Lomi Lomi awaits you...



There's a time to share, and this is it! Mahalo to this beautiful soul for reminding me of this experience on my journey. Inspiring me to continue on and be present for others, and point them to the right person for extra assistance if needed.

Blessings to everyone.

Lomi Lomi Reflection

People often ask "What is Lomi Lomi?" So I tell them, it's a Shamanic form of ancient Hawai'ian Bodywork based in spiritual traditions of Hawai'i.

Often this is met with a blank stare. Then, if it gets past that, "How does this differ from your regular Synergy massage?" An excellent question! So I respond,

" When I am doing a Lomi Lomi I am not thinking, Hmm... What is going on here? What can I do to work this out? Is this unusual for this person? What tools can I pull out of my bag that would work for their energy and body? I am not thinking any of that. I am not "thinking" at all, I am just listening, being present with the body and it's energy and following that flow."

In these times, people have a hard time wrapping their heads around the fact that I am not here to fix them, or more precisely, fix what ails them.

"Lomi Lomi is not about thinking, it is about being. About being present to your entire being, bringing you back to a state of balance, feeling more complete and in tune with your wholeness. It's about embodying a state of being more in touch with the inner wanderings of your mind and how that affects what is holding in your body on all levels."

Here, I often say what a client from many years back said after a few Lomi's in a row,
"You could put a therapist (meaning psychiatrist) out of business with this. Have fun and good luck with it." This person really GOT IT! So cool, that's it! They hit the nail on the head with that. Mahalo.
