The soul has the power to unlock areas of healing:emotionally, spiritually, mentally, and physically.
The soul has the power to unlock the door to freedom and purpose in your life..
Did you know that your soul speaks to you through your longings—that which is seeking to emerge?
Did you know that your soul speaks to you through your discontent—that which is seeking to be released?
Perhaps you had early life experiences that left you guarding your heart. You may even be aware of physical sensations like walls of protection around your heart.
I know for me, in the throes of divorce, those sensations intensified to mysterious stabbing pains. At times, they even took my breath away and paralyzed me.
Friends, parents, siblings or children hold space within our hearts -- challenges, transformations, and loss in these relationships can bring up heartache or heartbreak.
Do you carry some heartache or heartbreak from along life's journey?
Are you feeling lost, sad, or lonely due to the wounds of your past or the storms of your present?
Yes, heartbreak hurts. Yet healing a broken heart—while difficult—is a deeply rewarding process.

Fulfilled my calling
Bonnie has shown me compassion and light during difficulties and a confusing season of my life. She has incredible insight and knows how to avoid the potholes of life that can be difficult to see. She has experience navigating the map when it is difficult to read and her wisdom and faith are strong, yet gentle. I’ve been able to pursue a graduate educational program, practice self care and experience joy that I had not known.
Assured of my mission
Assured of my mission and remembering as I remember the gold that is within me. Also too what was really important was the identification of the purpose of struggle and the importance of letting go/surrendering it all to God. Thank you

Meaningful and Memorable
Your contribution to the retreat on Friday was precious. You were a kind and thoughtful facilitator, who, with the rest of the planning team, did a fabulous job of giving all of us a very meaningful and memorable experience. Your gentle spirit shone through in every detail, and though I've never commented on it, you have a perfect "chaplain voice". I'm sure that everyone you've taught and mentored and guided over the years is a better chaplain because of you.

Energy Healing improved my arthritic knee - deepened intution
Working with you was simply wonderful! One of the miracles for me was the healing of my arthritic knee. Before our session, I could not go up steps without holding on to the rail and putting down one foot, bringing the other foot onto the step. Resting. Moving one foot up unto the next step.... you get the idea. Now, according to the great grandchildren, I am running up the steps like a young girl! In addition, working with you has improved my intuition and my ability to visualize. ...And the breathing processes, what should I say? simply wonderful! The energy codes has given me several tools to add to my kit natural modalities for self healing. Thank you so much Bonnie. I truly enjoyed our time and work together.
