I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown,
for going out, I found, was really going in.”
~ John Muir, John of the Mountains
Lynn’s passion to work in the field of helping others developed through her personal life experiences and a lifelong desire to make a difference.
As a highly sensitive, soft hearted child, and later, as a young mom, the fear of speaking her truth led Lynn on a journey that exposed her to many frightening and life-altering experiences. At the same time, these experiences also offered her an insight into the world of others who were going through difficult times due to circumstances that had led them beyond the capacity of their personal resources.
Through her struggles, she learned first-hand how to muster up the courage that it takes to remove oneself from a difficult situation and to heal the wounds left behind by living through those challenging times. She learned what it is like to walk in someone else’s shoes and to recognize that, given any set of circumstances, we are always doing our best, even though most often, looking back, all we can see is our mistakes.
Sculpting is one of the first creative outlets that Lynn chose to help her process and give a voice to her innermost feelings and desires that she was unable to communicate during those difficult times. Her healing journey was a “process of becoming”, as described below:
“Through sculpting I was able to find a way to describe something that I was unable to grasp in my hands or see with my eyes, to offer a shape to the invisible. Like the hands of a child, my hands were able to access a deeper truth – my personal truth.”
Through Havening we gain access to this deeper truth. We are able to begin to shedding the layers that held us back. Transformation occurs when step out of the way and allow our creative energy to shape us. This is where the layers that we held on to so closely begin to gently fall away and our innermost being is revealed.
With the support of a capable practitioner it is possible to create the changes we long for, let go of the past and whatever is no longer serving us. We begin the process of healing, of getting back to “our personal truth”.
Living in alignment with our truth allows us to powerfully create our future free from the limitations of our past.
Lynn works as a Transformational Coach with an NLP background. Her practice as a Certified Havening Techniques® and Emotional Freedom Techniques Practitioner has provided her with a highly effective set of tools that allows her to work much as she would as a sculptor.
These powerful healing modalities enable Lynn to help her clients release or transform anything that does not belong or add to the whole, helping them to rediscover and empower their “Angel in the Marble”.
