What is a core belief? The definition of a core belief is the very essence of how we see ourselves. By identifying your core beliefs and retraining your brain, you can transform you life.

Many times in a reading a client will come to me for guidance and to gain clarity on their path. Rarely do I answer the yes or no question they have asked.

Instead, we work on identifying core beliefs, patterns, and blocks.

What I strive to do in a spiritual counseling or energy session is to look at when the core belief or pattern became imprinted in the client’s brain. We identify what it is and then work on re-framing the pattern that has taken hold of the subconscious mind. Then we dive into family relationships involving parents and grandparents. There are many techniques we use to have an understanding of what age the core belief rooted itself, identify the core belief, and then work on retraining the brain.

I find that when people ask me questions like;

which job should I take?


is the new person I’m dating right for me?

It’s a reflection of the pattern of lack, doubt or failure. It seems almost impossible for them to to see the conscious signs for themselves.

Helping Heal Family Relationships

Many of our core beliefs come from our childhood and generations before us. If you grew up in a dysfunctional family, it is likely you have core beliefs that are hindering your growth and health. As with most dysfunctional family relationships; healing from a broken heart, learning to forgive, and identifying blocks and patterns are key to moving forward in life with ease. By identifying these blocks and patterns we can re-frame them to our advantage.

We must heal the generations before us; and break any and all cycles of abuse for current and future generations to come.

Helping You Live Your Best Life

As humans, we were meant to live our best life. Sometimes based on our upbringing and dysfunctional family relationships we don’t have the opportunity to see this. This work is truly transformational and I can tell you I am my own testimonial.

After I started looking at my own issues of abandonment by my father and the circumstances of my own life that brought me pain on a daily basis, I realized I didn’t want to live with my constant negative mental chatter.

Make it stop!

I screamed out to myself one day early in the morning before getting out of bed. From that day on, I walked my own path — Identified my core beliefs, released blocks and changed patterns.

Through prayer work, meditation, and journaling I could sense exactly at what age and where the core beliefs came from. These beliefs, which I picked up at an early age, left me with low self-esteem and confidence. Once I was able to uncover these mental blocks, I began to regain my health and put my life back together—allowing my higher self to lead the way.

Remember, your mission is to focus on things that bring you joy. We are on this earth for a short time even though it may not seem that way as you are experiencing a lifetime on earth. Make the most of it and enjoy the physical senses this human body has to offer. It’s the way we create our best work.
