I call myself a Gardener of Joy.
The goal of Gardening Joy is to create a joyful flow of energy throughout the
heart, body, mind and spirit. This is done by rooting out anything that prevents
you from being fully present and aligned with All That Is. We work on the
underlying cause of dis-ease with Vibrational Alignment and Chakra Diagnosis.
I can feel the spin of energy at each of your seven chakras (energy centers along
the spine). Wherever the energy is excessive or deficient, I can detect subtle dysfunctions and the reasons
behind imbalances. Then I use vibratory tools (crystals, toning, aromatherapy)
to help bring the energies into balance.
Through Core Belief Work, we
identify and reprogram old dysfunctional beliefs that may be lingering in your
subconscious. Through Emotional Release Work, we release anger or sorrow that
may be trapped in your energy body, resulting in depression, lack of energy,
addiction, or physical ailments. I also do Past Life Regressions, Life Between LIves (LBL), Hypnotic
CDs, Life Path Counseling, Spiritual Journeys, and Releasing Earthbound Spirits.
I work in the tradition of the Shamana
and Medicine Woman. My teachers include Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, Bethal Phaigh,
and wisdom holders among native American and Hawaiian traditions. I am the Director
of the Vibrational Healing Program, now in its 24th year.
I am also available for private sessions by phone , including Counseling, Core Belief Work, Spiritual Journeys, Hypnotic CDs, Path Life Regressions, Grief Work, Chakra Diagnosis, Life Between LIves and Vibrational Alignment. Please email me to schedule an appointment, which can be done by phone or with Skype.
A Vibrational Alignment—the main work I do—works like this. We start out by chatting for awhile, getting to know one another. Then when we're ready, I begin to feel the spin of energy at your major and minor chakras. I can do this long distance. I describe what I feel to you, and this is like doing a psychic reading for each energy center; a lot of information tends to come through. It tends to open up more conversations.
Meanwhile, whenever it feels helpful, I will use a crystal or an essential oil at the appropriate chakras (if we're working long distance, I can do this here, on my imaginary hologram of your body, and you can also do it where you are, if you have the crystals or oils, and if not, I will describe them to you and you can visualize them).
I will continue to work with each chakra until it comes into balance. It's kind of like putting together a puzzle, because the information at one chakra will often relate to something at another chakra. For example, the left side of the body is your feminine side and may be influenced by your mother. Your left hip holds the energy of your mother during the first few years of your life and while you were in the womb.
The knees are about responsibility and how you feel about it.
So if you have a pain in your left knee, and if the energy there is excessive, it could be that your mother was a workaholic, and didn't take much time out for you when you were a baby, and that you adapted to the situation by becoming a workaholic yourself.
Sessions are from 1-1/2 to 2 hours and the fee is $150*. The Life Between Lives work takes 3-4 hours and the fee is $300. I see many clients via the internet, and I also see clients at my home office on the Big Island of Hawaii, between Hilo and Waimea.
If you come from off-island, ask about renting my Guest Room.
Another exciting option is to set up an individualized Mentorship Program, where we will work together to design private weekly sessions based on your individualized goals.
"Joy is a warm, tender
and huggable healer. She recognizes, honors and nurtures the whole person,
especially the fragile and often wounded inner child, who can feel trust and
joy in her capable and loving hands."

We are warrior women made of ancestor bone
We seek the spirit secrets in the deep unknown.
the Healing Vibration of Sound and Song
We in circle spin our webs
Weaving our tales of life
In threads of sound
I am a warrior woman, made from ancestor bone,
sprung from the wombs of my grandmothers.
My grandmothers, the musicians.
And music has woven its theme through my life.
The sound of music and the music of sound.
I am a sound weaver, threading tones from head to toe.
I use the sound and the song
to breathe freedom through me and into you.
Freedom to speak up, to sing out, to dance on the edge.
To breathe in spirit, inspire and release.
I use the sound and the song
to invoke creativity and to vitalize your imagination.
To shake loose the cobwebs of old habits. To vibrate our spirits.
I use the song and the sound
to strew the seeds of love and sow connection and community.
Tell me about yourself and we will sing the song of you.

I work one to one with people in sessions I call Voice and Sound.
These sessions incorporate the healing modalities I am trained in and the focus is on self expression, confidence building and finding your true vocal path, which in turn can lead to finding your true life path.
I believe the voice is a mirror and a metaphor. Work with the voice
and positive changes happen.
I have always known at a deep level how important sound is. My passion for more understanding led me to work and study with Joy at her then home in Marin County, North of San Francisco. Our time together was inspiring. I came away fully aware that Vibrational Healing was to be a big part of my life and work.
I have a hearing impairment which means I have intuitively relied on the feel of sound on some level for all of my life. We listen with more than just our ears!
I am a professional vocalist myself and I am honoured to be part of a global album project ‘Healing Music From Around The World – Volume 1’. Together with composer Kate Jaconello we represent the UK on this worldwide release.

Experience Vibrational Healing
We are all vibration. When we are
vibrating at our highest frequency, everything in our life feels in balance,
and things "click" into place. Many circumstances affect our energy
fields and can throw our vibrations off, from physical and emotional trauma to stress, childhood wounds, or picking up other's "negative vibes."
In Vibrational Healing we work together to balance the body's energy centers and release negative patterns
using sound and toning, color, gemstones, aromatherapy, and the magical vibrations
of the ocean.
Lissin is an intuitive
and gentle healer who believes in the healing power of the human voice. A classical
singer for fifteen years, she was guided in 1993 to expand beyond the realm
of performing and to use her voice for healing. Since then Lissin has developed
a dynamic and highly effective technique called Sound Massage and has studied
with sound healer Karin Schelde and extensively with Joy Gardner's Vibrational
Sessions take place at Lissin's home--just 20 minutes from
San Francisco--in a beautiful secluded cove on the beach where the healing songs
of the ocean escalate the vibratory experience.

Lynn Miller provides healing sessions tailored to help you resolve emotional pain, develop self-expression, learn tools for stress reduction and develop new self-advocating behaviors. This process is supported through Creative arts, Chakra balancing and Therapeutic sound. Learn more at: http://www.lynnmiller.org/
When we are out of balance, we feel a disharmony. This disharmony can manifest with unclear thinking, stress, physical symptoms or fatigue. This is our body speaking to us, a signal for us to look at something, feel something, notice something. Therapeutic Sound Healing can restore the body back to harmony.
During a session Lynn Miller uses her voice, gemstones and color therapy, with the objective of raising vibration. She "tunes" into the chakras through sound. The participant hears the feedback which brings awareness. Dense frequencies held by buried emotions may be released and transmuted. The body entrains as higher frequencies are introduced. Participants may be encouraged to use their own voice to move the energy. The sounding gently massages molecules back into the right places, clearing blockages and restoring harmony. Our vibrations attract people and situations that have a similar frequency. By raising our vibrations, we can attract what we want in our lives.
In addition to private sessions, Lynn Miller and Jan Hittle have created the SpiritVoice: School for Vocal Improvisation and Sound Healing. http://www.spiritvoiceschool.com/
• Learn vocal improvisation techniques
Learn sound healing tools for personal growth or for working with others
Develop musicianship skills
• Be part of a vocal community

Luce Myers practices in the Ozark Highlands of Missouri. She listens to your body/mind and spirit attentively before assisting you on your healing path with the help of
vibrational alignment with stones
Raindrop essential oil technique
subtle flower essences
Luce has been a Vibrational practitioner since her initial training with Joy Gardener in 1995, and has studied essential oils with David Stewart since 2002.
Luce is a visual artist and educator and encourages clients to co-create a work of art to bookmark their healing experiences.
I have been a Vibrational Healer certified by Joy Gardner’s Vibrational Healing Program since 1997, when I went to Molokai, Hawaii, to learn from Joy how to feel energy and to work with it using sound in the form of toning, light, color and crystals; how to do past life regressions, spiritual journeys (I’ll never forget the one on which Joy led me), underlying cause and vibrational alignments, including stone layouts.
I was raised in a family that was in tune with all things metaphysical. My parents were interested in telepathy and psychic phenomena, Edgar Cayce and ESP among other topics, and talked to me about them. I remember my father asking me to “guess” what the next card would be from a deck of cards with funny designs on them like a star or wavy lines. I later learned this was a deck used to test psychic ability. I think I missed as many as I got right.
My first memories about complementary healing occurred when I was about six years old and really sick. My parents placed a long distance phone call (only done in those days when it was extremely important) to my great-Aunt Martha, who was an osteopath and radionics practitioner. She would diagnose and treat me from her office in Paris, KY, and I always got well.
I soon learned that I didn’t talk about great-Aunt Martha’s healing work with my friends because they’d laugh and make fun of me. So my interests simmered.
When I was 13, I knew I wanted to learn to do what great-Aunt Martha did, but a few months later she made her transition at the age of 83. I thought that was the end of the road for my desire to become a healer because surely no one else in the world could do what she did.
Over the years, I read everything I could find about psychic phenomena, telepathy, ESP, clairaudience and remote viewing. But the healing side of energy work lay withering in a corner somewhere.
At the same time, I was evolving my own ideas about how the world and its energies worked, based on my own experiences, particularly with manifestation. I started noticing that if I said certain things in certain ways, they happened!
My spiritual philosophy was also evolving. When I was in my twenties, a co-worker (a former Jesuit priest) told me that my ideas were quite metaphysical. I wasn’t even sure what metaphysical meant!
Then, in 1995, I saw a video of a Touch For Health treatment with a description of the energy meridians and kinesiology. After the video there was a demonstration of kinesiology. I was mesmerized. The three hours passed in a flash. I knew I wanted to learn to do it, though it was several years before I did.
The next year I began taking classes at the Holistic Coaching Institute and was later attuned as a Reiki Master. After reading an article by Joy Gardner in a local metaphysical newspaper, I called her to find out more about Vibrational Healing. That resulted in my becoming a Certified Vibrational Healer in her program.
As part of the certification process, I had to do a number of treatments of several sorts and send Joy the feedback sheets. One client who didn’t know much about complementary healing, but had an open mind, was a subject for a Vibrational Alignment stone layout. About halfway through he said, “I don’t know what you’re doing, but it sure feels good.” What a confirmation. He could feel the stones working.
Past Life Regressions are a favorite with clients. They are amazed by the experiences the messages they receive that help them with issues in their current lives. I now work with color and light in combination with other modalities in my practice.
In addition to being a Certified Vibrational Healer, I am a Reiki Master Teacher, Advanced Pranic Healer and a Sound Therapy Practitioner using the Solfeggio tuning forks. My practice consists primarily of working above the body with the body’s energy fields.
I live in East Tennessee near a town called Madisonville where I practice with my husband, Dale. Our practice is called Mountain Harmony Wellness where we do treatments and teach classes in Reiki, meditation, meridians and others.

I specialize in those with chronic illness and children and adults who have been diagnosed with autism.
I consider myself a wounded healer. I have been through chronic illness myself and have learned so much that I pass on to my clients.
Every session I do is spiritually guided. I connect with the clients guides and angels as I work as a facilitator to bring forth healing energies such as Reiki and the beautiful 12th dimensional healing energy. I also work with crystals, sound, aromatherapy, flower essences, spiritual guidance, inner-work or whatever I am guided to use to help the client on his or her journey healing.
I enjoy working with people who are ready to heal and to do the work. This is when the good stuff happens.
With children and adults with autism, I also communicate telepathically with them or with their higher self to share information back to the parents. This helps the parent to understand issues in the home, reasons for behavior, and health issues.
I consider myself very blessed to do this work and hope to share it with as many
as I am able.
