I have had the honor of working with Stephen Linsteadt on three separate occasions using the Scalar Heart Connection modality. Each time I have experienced both subtle and profound energetic shifts in my overall functioning. Moreover, with each session I have noticed progressive movement toward the release of long-held emotional patterns. There is one session that I recall in September 2011 in which I was experiencing physical symptoms related to my throat (thyroid imbalance, sore throats, and hoarseness) as well as related feelings of sadness. In the session that day, it came up that I hadn’t been speaking up for myself both personally or professionally. The Scalar Heart Connection session identified the underlying body memory and negative mind-brain conditioning as the result of a car accident in childhood that took the lives of my family members, except for my mother and me. A tracheotomy saved my life. My head told me I needed to hold on to the past as a way of honoring my family. My heart told me I needed to resonate with ‘positive separation.’ My heart also asked me to replace the vibration of guilt with, “I live comfortably in limbo.” The positive heart message I needed was “I am positively separated from the past and I can now speak my truth.” My ability to express my inner thoughts, feelings, and desires without hesitation has dramatically improved as a result of this session.
