Elizabeth Wants You To FEEL Bliss Better Mon, 30 Nov 2020 13:14:47 +0000

Here are some of my signature session designed from 13 years of training and experience in working with clients.

I see clients for Integrative Massage where I can combine my massage technique training to offer “a perfect for you” massage. I have specific certifications in Cranio Sacral, Aromatherapy, Ayurveda, Hot Stone and Reflexology. I love combining energy work and spa treatments to help you feel deeply connected and in tune. I invite you to share your transformation time with me.

– The Works! –

Ever need to to just hit reset? Get Tuned in? I’ve created “The Works”, a 2 hour session that starts by pulling a past, present, future card spread. This will help focus your energy in the session. I’ll incorporate energy work (reiki, polarity, cranio sacral), massage (deep tissue and Swedish), sound therapy, chakra chromo therapy imagery (sometimes guided) and the grounding use of crystals, hot stones and towels. The WooWoo is real and you are YOU, only “reset” better.

One client said, “this is not a massage, this is an experience.”

– Be Aligned With A Earth Star Spirit Massage –

“The earth star chakra anchors the etheric and astral body to this life-time and the soul star chakra connects us to the ever expansive higher self.”

In this 2 hour session we use an Intuitive deck to bring awareness to the current energy field and anchor the session in this time dimension. I will use solfeggio coded tuning forks to get connected to information around archetypal chakra work that is manifesting along your personal past, present, future timeline. These solfeggio codes activate sacred geometry and help the DNA matrix realign to and remember soul purpose. We use gentle marma point massage and reiki along with cranio sacral to connect and soothe the body. Essential oils and crystals will help unlock the energy centers to that the physical body can follow. Great attention is paid to the head and feet as these are the entry and exit points of the etheric sushumna (main energy channel) and connector to the earth and soul star chakras. You will receive a follow up email identifying some chakra archetype information gleaned from the session.

Clients have marveled at troubles melting away, tensions easing, experienced lucid dreaming and eureka moments.

Ayurveda utilizes the curative properties oils, herbs to improve health and relieve stress. Enjoy the benefits of the ancient science of Ayurveda in a modern setting. This session includes Abyanga (oils massage), Garshan (dry skin brushing), and a Mini Shirodhara (oil streaming down on the 3rd eye point and hot oil treatment on the hair). Clients love the feeling of deep relaxation offered by this treatment and have remarked that they feel as if they have been reborn back into their body!

– Get In Tune With An Aromatherapy Consult –

Need to know which essential oils and herbs might work for you. This session combines aromatherapy, ayurveda, and energy science to help you approach your body, your situation in a custom way so that it will work for you.

– Be Connected With This Private Meditation Package –

We can then move forward with skill development and a mantra.  As Always Intuition is heightened during meditation. Prepare for deep and meaningful awareness, skills to help you find the meditation practice that is right for your temperament.

This combination session includes an Ayurvedic consultation with focus on your dosha. Based on what your are going through right now, the goals you have for the coming year, Elizabeth will teach you a mantra and go over some simple ayurvedic lifestyle ideas that are personalized to you as you move through the 4 seasons.

Soul Contact Sessions With Tonya Mon, 16 Nov 2020 20:05:17 +0000  

Past Lives and Reincarnation

By Tonya Madia, Certified Hypnotist, Medium

“I started out really young, when I was four, five, six, writing poems, before I could play an instrument. I was writing about things when I was eight or 10 years old that I hadn’t lived long enough to experience. That’s why I also believe in reincarnation, that we were put here with ideas to pass around.” ~ Willie Nelson

When my son was a toddler he would wake from his naps befuddled. Looking around the room, eyes wide with confusion he would sometimes ask, “Where is my family?” To which my husband and I would respond, “We’re right here buddy…”

“No,” he would respond, “I mean my other family!” He would then describe his family, his home, and his occupation in great detail. He would tell us about his job as a fireman and talk about the intense heat of the fires and the extreme weight of the hoses. Details a two-year-old would not have known.

One afternoon, while having lunch with my son, he began staring at me intently. This continued for several moments until he blurted out, “It’s you!”

“Yes,” I replied, confused, “it’s me… your mom.”

“No!” he replied. “Don’t you remember? When I was a grown up and we were friends? I would come to your house to pick you up for dances and I would brush your hair?”

I had to admit to him that I did not recall those encounters; however, I trusted his recollection of them 100%.

Reincarnation, the belief that our souls return to begin a new life in another body, is also called transmigration. It is a central tenet of many religions, such as Jainism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Sikhism. Belief in reincarnation is found in many ancient cultures and the belief was also held by Greek historic figures, such as Pythagoras, Socrates, and Plato.

Certain passages of the Bible, such as Matthew 16:13–15 and John 1:21–22, reference reincarnation and question whether Jesus is the reincarnation of Elijah, John the Baptist, Jeremiah, or another prophet.

Numerous cases of young children who report memories of previous lives have been studied over the last 50 years, cases in which thousands of children from different backgrounds and religions have described a life that they have lived before with stunning detail.

Memories of past lives seem to be more easily accessed by young children. Perhaps they have not been long separated from their previous incarnation and have not yet fully come to identify with their new body/identity. Although, if this was the only explanation, it seems to me that every young child would recall past life experiences. There does seem to be a common theme of trauma due to a sudden or violent death, among the children who recall past life memories, which suggests that a violent or traumatic death contributes to the ability to recall a previous life.

There are countless cases from all over the world in which young children recall with incredible accuracy details from a previous life. What is so remarkable about these cases is that in addition to often verifiable facts, there are often physical traits connected to their past live experiences. Birthmarks are often found in the exact location of fatal wounds. Ailments such as asthma are present in individuals who died from drowning or asphyxiation. Evidence also suggests that habits and phobias carry over from past lives, as do talents and skills.

If accepted as fact, a belief in reincarnation would serve to influence and change our personal behavior. If we were all to understand that the way in which we treat others in this life time will have consequences for the way future lifetimes unfold, I believe a shift in consciousness could occur that would change the world for the better.

If you have ever wondered what lives you’ve lived, met someone and felt as if you’ve known them forever or ever been curious about the nature of karma, lives between lives, or past lives, you might be interested in scheduling a Soul Contact Session with me. Sessions are a gentle form of hypnosis allowing access to higher states of consciousness, which allows for contact with guides and recall of memories of lives between lives and past life experiences. Sessions are done remotely via video and last anywhere from 75-90 minutes.

When Small Businesses Support Each Other – We All Win Sat, 03 Oct 2020 10:36:40 +0000 Festivals cancelled, vendor fairs cancelled, fun events cancelled! Yep 2020 is almost over and we decided to do something sweet and positive. We invited some small business friends to Bliss to set up their tables and give us all a chance to exchange greetings and hopefully pick up a few treasures.

We love crystals at Bliss! We know you do too, so we invited our friend Justin from Winchester Virginia down to visit us. We usually see him at the Festival of Lights in Berkeley Springs.

We also invited Eddie Spaghetti Art to set up shop. You would have missed them at Cheat Fest but now you get to pick up one of their prints full of West Virginia flora, fauna and whimsy!

Guess who else will be with us? Angela Carver is bringing her fun little sign business, “Art By Angela“. These are such great gifts and are sure to bring a smile to your face.

And we absolutely could not host an event and not have “Our Sweet Maya” here with us from Crystal Chick. We are overjoyed that she will get to come and bring us new stock of wire wrapped crystals. She calls them her pretties. You will too!

If you have been in the bliss shop recently, you might have seen the Little Wizards earring display. These creations are made by Ava Reynolds in between her busy senior year at WVU. We love the delicate pieces she brings to life. You might even see Eddie with a secret smile on his face, since he was her art teacher way back when.

There is another new small business in town that you might have been hearing about. Yes “Joy and Hemp“, will be bringing their tinctures, bath bombs, soaps and massage oils. Nothing like hemp to beguile the senses and if that does not make you melt then Jenn Hastings’s smile surely will.

One of the first friends Bliss ever made was Eli Pollard. He’ll REPRESENT Mountain Nerds with his wild and wonderful and sometimes trippy creations.

We might have one other guest business joining us so stay tuned or just stop by and explore this mask friendly, people friendly gathering from 10-4 on Saturday Oct. 10.

Monthly Messages from Spirit Goes Virtual! Fri, 04 Sep 2020 19:00:00 +0000 Tonya began connecting with and channeling messages from spirit in 2009 when she was directed by guides to try automatic writing. After her level III Reiki attunement the following year, Tonya began seeing spirit and she has been channeling messages for clients ever since.

Join Tonya via Zoom, on the last Friday of each month, for an hour-long conversation with spirit as she shares information coming through as it relates to guidance for the participants of each session. Messages can range from information regarding love, relationships, and money and might apply individually or on a group level.

Tonya receives information during sessions in the form of intuitive thoughts, feelings, images, and sounds.
As a Medium she often sees spirits and the images that they show her. Every spirit communicates differently. Tonya likes to think of spirits as simply people without bodies, and as such their personalities are just as varied as ours. Although she can not control if or who “comes through” during each session, she is a firm believer that messages received are always the right message at the right time.

I am definitely going to keep going toTonya was amazing! I have never met her and she was spot on.

Tonya creates such a loving and safe space. I appreciate her authenticity in the readings that she gives.

I chose 10 being best, because I really enjoyed being part of Tonya Madia’s Group.

2020 Group Classes are held at 7:00PM- Be sure to Register in Advance so that the zoom call in number and computer link can be sent to you before the event starts.

If I Were A Social Media Influencer Sun, 16 Aug 2020 12:06:54 +0000 By Elizabeth

If I were a social media “influencer” and I could choose to be a brand ambassador, I would choose DoTERRA.

I love this company and I love these oils.  I use them in my treatment room, I diffuse in the lobby. I have them in about every room in my house (use it or loose it baby). Basically, I use them ALLOT.  But why this company? Why would I love to be their brand ambassador?

I can credit this company for being the impetus for me getting a in depth aromatherapy certification. I have hundreds of success stories in using their products. One reason for my groupie like love for this company is the way in which they help every day people understand and learn how to use essential oils based products safely in their home.

Every year, I trek out to Salt Lake City for more in depth training. This year, that won’t happen. The good news is that I can to go “virtually” and the even better news is that you can go virtually too!

Would you like to come with me?

You should be able to buy a virtual ticket tomorrow. Can’t wait to post more on this topic, stay tuned.

Akashic Record Reading Mon, 06 Jul 2020 16:00:59 +0000 By Melita Mollohan

Do you ever feel stuck or stagnant in your life or business? Does it ever feel like your wheels are spinning but there isn’t any forward momentum? Do you wish you could get insight at a soul level on how to proceed when you are at a crossroads or don’t know what step to take next? If you’ve nodded your head yes to any of these things… THERE IS HOPE! Your Akashic Records can provide the loving guidance and support you need.

What are the Akashic Records you ask? Simply put, this is the record of YOU. It’s the record of your soul’s journey through all time. In the Bible, it was referred to as “The Book of Life.” Each Soul, from the moment of its physical origination, has a set of Akashic Records.

The Akashic Records act as a database whereby every thought, word, action and experience that has ever occurred in time and space is stored as an energetic event. Hence, everything about you, including all information about current, past lives, are stored here. In this session, you can learn about your relationships, your health, your soul path, and every other conceivable topic regarding YOU!
Take the next step of exploring your soul’s journey. Discover your blocks and learn how to break through them once and for all.
