November 20, 2019 Meet Beth Leas! Besides being a transformative healer, Beth does tarot card readings, meditations and coaching.
I met Beth when I joined her holistic networking group, TLC Network. Her infectious laugh and positive attitude will make you smile. Beth is quick to give a listening ear and useful advice. Basically she is my "Queen of Cool" - find out more about Beth and who she thinks is Queen of Cool!
How did you you discover your ability to help people transform?
Beth: My life has been blessed with some pretty dark places. When I was a teenager I discovered the power of meditation to change my life - reducing stress, anxiety, depression. This simple daily practice radically transformed my life in many ways. One of the greatest benefits is that it helped me develop the ability to listen to my thoughts and my feelings - and to be a better observer. 30 years ago, when I started doing energy healing professionally, this skillset served to help me to connect more deeply with others and to be very effective in supporting their transformation through sharing powerful tools and observations.The way we see the world changes the way we interact with it. Wayne Dyer said " When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change." Simply put, I help people change the way they look at things - through energy healing, meditation, reflective writing and tarot. It's been a real honor to assist people on their healing journey - whether it's some physical project, or emotional pain or mental confusion. I often can see things more clearly than they can, because I have a different perspective. My job is to help them shift - turning their perceived obstacles into stepping stones. Rumi said "The wound is the place where the Light enters you." Healing is all about letting go of everything that isn't you - all of the obstacles, all of the expectations, all of the beliefs that no longer serve you - and becoming who you are.
What is the best way to describe your transformative energy healing to someone who is new to it?
Beth: Energy healing is a part of ancient traditions such as traditional chinese medicine and yoga. We have rivers or highways of energy running through our bodies. Through the stresses of daily living - such as our environment, diet, habits, thoughts, beliefs - the flow gets obstructed or blocked causing discomfort or pain, physical symptoms, emotional frustration, spiritual disconnection. Energy healing is a process through which we get the energy pathways flowing freely - stimulating the body's innate ability to heal itself - and bringing about relaxation, relief from symptoms on all levels - physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
In my healing sessions, clients usually lie down fully clothed on a massage table. I have been trained in Reiki, Jin Shin Jyutsu and Integrated Energy Therapy - so your transformative healing session may be focused on one of those - or a combination. Energy healing is like cleaning your home. When you take really good care of yourself - getting good sleep, having work/home balance, eating well, exercising, nurturing your body, mind and soul - less maintenance is required - perhaps a monthly session to keep things flowing well. Seasonal changes are always a great time to receive a deep energy clearing. And when life is lobbing curve balls your direction, scheduling a series of sessions will help bring things into balance on all levels. You can also learn how to do energy healing for yourself! I teach all levels - from self-help to Master Level in which you to work with others professionally.
You founded the TLC Network group in 1997 which is comprised of health and wellness providers. You often refer to the group as a tribe. What is the biggest lesson you have learned from the tribe?
Beth: There are so many lessons I have learned from Tribe TLC. The biggest is to be open to the possibilities! Over the past several decades, our network has grown and expanded. Originally we were primarily holistic practitioners in the Norwalk, CT area - naturopaths, chiropractors, massage therapists, acupuncturists, medical doctors, energy healers. That group has expanded into over 100 members - salt caves, artists, real estate brokers, yoga studios, financial advisors, wellness spas, retreat centers. 2019 has expanded Tribe TLC into Westchester County and 2020 promises to bring us to new places too! I am open to the possibilities!
If you were not you, who would you be?
Beth: Oh this is easy - Bonnie Raitt. She has always been one of my most favorite musicians. She is authentic as they come - honoring all the old-time blues musicians, great collaborator, super humble, triumphant over her demons, passionate environmentalist making a difference in this world. She is funky, sassy, sexy and soulful - and a bad-ass slide guitarist. She is the Queen of Cool! I would love to be her in my next life!
What word do you dislike?
Beth: "Can't" I can't stand it! Haha! It's like nails on a chalkboard to me. It's such a negative attitude - playing the victim, not open to the infinite possibilities. Where there's a will, there's a way. Often, when we say 'I can't' we mean 'I won't' or 'I don't want to.' Why don't we just say that?
- the end -
We are excited to have Beth come to the cave for the TarotScope Reading on December 5th at 7:00. Find out the path of your 2020 in this fun event by drawing 1 card each month for her to read. Beth also does tarot readings and energy work in our private salt room. Stay Salty, Arianne
About Beth Leas: "What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly." - Richard Bach
Throughout my extensive healing work over the past 30 years with adults and children of all ages, I have witnessed the amazing transformation of people embracing their inner strength. To facilitate transformation, I use 4 powerful tools: Energy Healing Meditation, Reflective Writing and Transformative Tarot. My down-to-earth sessions combine my gift of intuition with my personal practice of mindfulness, compassions and light-heartedness.
I believe I was brought into this world to share my gifts of laughter, my innate ability to hold a space energetically for my clients where deep transformative healing takes place, and my devotion to creating a strong community where 'the light of a single candle burns brighter in a gathering.'
I offer private sessions and readings via phone/skype and at offices in Norwalk and Stamford, CT. I teach a wide array of workshops and offer inspirational talks in the tri-state area. www.bethleas.com, www.tribetlc.com
