Annette is a holistic nurse, massage therapist, medical intuitive, clairvoyant, energy worker and sound healer. Lotus Love Healing is her baby; her creation, and its purpose and focus are to facilitate healing through love. She believes to be love is to be in one’s truth. To be a nurse requires devotion of self to another human being, viewing the human body as a blank canvas of God’s creation. The Lotus represents all forms of growth; her personal growth and the growth of all those she is led to serve. Love is our driving force and our truth. Healing is the conglomerate of all the different types of healing modalities. Annette has studied psychology, holism, neuroscience, and has had a love and understanding for anything metaphysical since she was a little girl. Through experiencing her own battles with traumas and loss, Annette has learned the necessary tools to assist with healing from suffering; rising above the muddy waters, as does a lotus, stretching out its soft petals on top of the stillness, shining brightly and compassionately through God’s love. It is through these life lessons, and with the assistance of Annette’s spirit guides, animal guides, elders, and angels that her Lotus Love Healing technique was born. During a lotus love healing, Annette will ask for spirit guidance to help communicate with your higher self. She will use a mixed-modality approach and perform smudging, energetic tuning, and guided imagery. Your healing session may also include a card reading, the use of essential oils, healing crystals, color symbolism, drums, rattles, and other sound therapy as tolerated by you and best suited to assist in a therapeutic release of blocked energies, all while creating a harmonizing sense of clarity and grounding. As a clairvoyant, Annette receives what she calls "downloads" from Source. These are intuitive knowing’s that come to her before and during a healing session, and often they pertain to past traumas and experiences that have created stagnant energy in the body. Too often, because of these experiences, we tend to build a wall up to protect our heart. She purposefully listens to and then selects songs/music, and different sound therapies that she feels you will benefit from. Annette’s lotus love healing is a true love healing, focusing on the heart chakra by using the energetic vibrations of the sound she was led to by Source and then transmuting them to you. You will feel your own soul energy dance around as it shifts and finds balance, opening areas of your mind body and spirit that are asking for healing. By focusing on these areas and learning how to release that which no longer serves your purpose for soul growth, you will feel the magnitude of LOVE that is within YOU.
Crystal Energy Healer
Bre’ Crystal is a certified crystal healer who uses her gifts to help people raise their vibration and remove stress, anxiety, and stagnant energy. Her goal is helping people feel calmer and lighter in their everyday lives. Even as a child, Bre’anda was fascinated by the ways in which crystals can create an important connection between us and the universe. Everyone can raise their vibration, even if they don’t know how to do it yet. The objective is to help clients feel more relaxed, more connected to their bodies, and more empowered in their lives. By using crystal vibrations, Bre’anda can bring our soul into a state of balance and harmony. She loves to blend the healing modalities of crystals vibrations, sound healing, oracle cards and visualization for creating the best healing experience and connecting with our higher selves.
Shaer Love was born with extrasensory gifts. Raised in a Christian religion she was afraid of her gifts growing up. Her upbringing was very traumatic due to not understanding her gifts as well as going through many forms of abuse. She grew up with a yearning to understand herself and the world around her. This gave her the drive to learn as much as she could, becoming fascinated with philosophy and metaphysics. At the age of 18 she was initiated into her mediumship through the passing of her grandmother, eventually becoming a bridge for others to connect to their ancestors. As the years went by she became a trauma specialist learning how to move energies in the body through different methods such as yoga, meditation, frequencies, colors, crystals, using the elements & hypnosis to remove blockages in the body. Shaer now helps others find that peace within themselves so that they may live a life overflowing in unconditional love as she lives today.

He also studied and practiced Sat Nam Rasayan healing, Marma Point Meditation, makes personalized chakra meditation mists and kick-ass chai. SInce retiring from teaching, he’s focused on his personal practice which has developed into a more gentle approach to this form of yoga that anybody can do called t’Om Yoga.
