My why…

Healers sometimes have a story to tell, one that explains why they do what they do. I am no different in this way except that my story is my own. It has been a treacherous journey but one that has yielded great reward. I have been searching to find the Holy Grail of healing since I was 20 years old. It was at that time that my brother contracted an insidious and aggressive form of cancer. He was only 26 and should have had his whole life in front of him. It was incomprehensible to me to think that his life could be cut so short. My heart ached to realize that I might lose him.

While he considered traditional western medicine and did utilize it to some degree, my brother was more interested to see if alternative methods would provide greater hope and promise. It was the early 70s. Guided imagery and visualization were popular at that time. He implemented those techniques and shared his new found knowledge with me, giving me some amazing books to read. I was absolutely fascinated!

He also began a nutrient-rich diet, eating all organic natural foods and juicing, to cleanse and nourish his sick body. He wanted to live! These things had a powerful effect on him. They resulted in his remission from cancer for nearly two years. He lived much longer than had been expected.

Witnessing my brother’s persistent and diligent efforts was the catalyst that inspired me. My journey to learn about alternative methods of healing began there. I wanted to know how to heal from physical illness, emotional baggage, and mental agony.

My why continues…

My own life was fraught with tremendous loss, pain, and sickness. I always knew deep down, that I primarily was creating the problems that seemed persistent in my life. I had been a victim of some abuse in my childhood and was still so hurt and damaged. I knew that I was responsible for how I perceived and dealt with life, as I was experiencing it now. I was still living in the past essentially, still hurting because of old injuries. I wanted to find a solution. I kept wondering why I was making decisions that often brought just the opposite result of what I wanted. I couldn’t understand why, no matter how hard I worked, I was living a life of self-sabotage. I felt hopeless and like I couldn’t go on living this way. My heart despaired over all that I had lost and continued to lose. I was desperate to find help. I needed to find a way to make my life work.

I had always been a good student while in school. From the time I was young, I excelled at anything I put my mind to do. I graduated with Honors from Harvard as an undergraduate and went on to complete my Master’s degree in Social Work at Indiana University with a 3.93 grade point average. So how could I be having so much trouble figuring out how to live life successfully? I turned to what I knew how to do. I read lots of books, attended seminars and participated in programs of all types. I searched for healing modalities that would help me to function better, overcome illness, and just be happier. I become certified as a 2nd degree Reiki master, certified in Spiritual Counseling, Hypnotherapy, and others courses, all to heal my life. I opened my heart to learn what I really needed to know, to understand the deep reasons for why I was so dysfunctional, sick and lost. I prayed for guidance and for the insight that I needed.

An Answer

Ashira with ClientIn spite of all that I had studied and learned, I had the nagging feeling that something was still missing. I just could not seem to get to the absolute root causes of my problems. The whys. Why didn’t I just heal? What was preventing it? Why couldn’t I feel joy? Why don’t others heal completely and live lives of happiness? I just knew it was possible. Then someone gave me a copy of The Emotion Code, a book written by Dr. Bradley Nelson. I devoured it! Instinctively, I knew that I had found the technique that would answer my yearning to heal my life, as well as help many others. I felt that I had finally found the way to get to the root causes and remove them! I learned that we can heal and be free of past hurts and truly move forward into health and happiness.

When I read the Emotion Code book by Dr. Bradley Nelson, I instinctively knew the method he created was the answer I was looking for. (He has since expanded the method which he calls The Body Code which is far more comprehensive).

I feel enormously grateful that after more than 30 years of searching, I have found the modalities that have been the most successful for me and the clients I have served. The best part is that it is profoundly simple. It is non-invasive. It is painless. It is individualized just for you. And it works!

Bringing relief to others

Using kinesiology to connect with a client’s subconscious, I no longer had to “guess” at what was imbalanced. The subconscious is an infinite well of knowledge as it holds all the information from experiences and their effects within it. It has no ability to lie (unlike our conscious minds)., so when asking questions in a yes/no format, a story of the underlying causes for an imbalance becomes clear. Once the root causes are identified, a process of energetically removing the offending stuck energies can take place. Clients are amazed that healing can occur without invasive procedures and/or medications.

This process is, of course, multi-faceted and has several layers. Many clients hope (and often expect) that all imbalances can be resolved in one session. In some instances where the imbalance is minor, relief and resolution can occur in a session. However, because negative patterns of thought and action and developed over time and have been cemented, it takes some time (typically between 4-10 sessions) to untangle the web of beliefs, trapped emotions, and patterns from ancestors that have caused difficulty.

Having worked with this system for more than a decade, the results are impressive.

We have all been conditioned to believe that healing must be painful, invasive, and take years to occur. The concept of being able to facilitate healing from a distance seems unreal and unrealistic. When you stop to consider that everything is made up of energy and disease is simply an imbalance in that energy, then you can entertain the idea that healing is simply working with the imbalanced energies in such a way as to realign them for health.

Perhaps the most critical element of healing is not the facilitator of it, but the client. If you, as the client, have the desire and belief that you will heal, YOU WILL HEAL. I am only as good as my client allows me to be. Without internal resistance on the part of the client, a resolution will occur.

All my best,



When I reached out to Ashira for help, I was in so much spiritual, emotional, and physical pain that I was literally a walking shell of a person. I quickly learned from Ashira that suffering is a choice, not a requirement, and that I can feel safe working with her. She doesn’t judge and has a great sense of humor. You can tell her anything. Would you like to feel a lightness of being? Ask her to clear your heart wall. Would you like to remove the blocks that are keeping you from connecting with your higher power? She can do that, too. Want a better understanding of your family dynamics? Work with Ashira! Do you want to know the underlying cause(s) of your pain?  She can tell you why.  Are you tired of your headaches, acne, constipation, various phobias, anxiety, limiting beliefs, and negative thinking patterns? All gone, thanks to Ashira’s skillful removal of emotional blockages.

The most amazing clearing she did was on the skull and neck injury I sustained over 30 years ago in a horseback-riding accident. I now no longer suffer from those headaches and neck trauma.

The most miraculous improvement was when Ashira worked on my left ear. I had significant hearing loss, and now it’s improved so much, I can hear my husband’s voice in the next room!

Working with Ashira is a lifetime investment that positively impacts not only you, but your finances and your family as well. Ashira can muscle test to personalize your supplement regime so you are only taking what you need in the dose you need. This alone has saved me so much money.  She has also helped several of my family members and even our dog with their health challenges!

A really nice side benefit of clearing so much of my emotional baggage is that my relationship with food has changed! I no longer feel an overwhelming urge to numb my emotions with overeating and poor food choices.

You can spend excessive amounts of travel time and money on therapy and doctors and be disappointed and broke and still in pain, or you can sit in the comfort of your own home (using your phone or Skype) and let Ashira help you for a fraction of the cost. I now believe it’s possible to be free of pain.
