Someone was doing an article for a magazine about me and my work and asked me to complete a questionnaire. These are the questions and my responses:
Please put your name as you would like it to appear in the article and include your title or what you do .
Takara Shelor – Bestselling Author, Award-Winning Speaker, Engineer & Mystic
Which healing modalities do you practice? (Reiki, massage, energy medicine, etc.) Please give a description of each service you offer.
I am a practitioner and facilitator of energy healing in its numerous forms – sound healing; hands-on healing (like Reiki) and other energy transmissions; shamanic healing; dolphin energy healing; intuitive healing; flower, gem, color, sound, and other vibrational essence therapies; gem & crystal healing; and others as inspired. I am known as “the Chalice of Divine Frequencies” and receive and transmit a wide spectrum of healing energies through my hands and my voice. I also teach many things and offer intuitive consulting advice to all my clients.
People from all over the globe contact me for private sessions and group experiences both in person and through webinars and teleseminars. I work mostly long distance by phone for private sessions. The person lies down or reclines at their home and I walk them through a session using whatever I am “inspired” or guided to use to clear, heal, align, and balance the person and all their subtle bodies. Some sessions involve an “upgrade” to the person’s energy system, an activation of latent gifts and/or codes, sometimes it involves a full-blown initiation of one kind or another. Every session is unique. No two are ever the same. In each of the sessions, I “tune in” to the individual, asking their Higher Self and Guides to “inspire” me with what the person needs most at this time. I am then intuitively guided to use the various modalities at my disposal … I am often “given” (in the moment) a meditation / visualization to guide them through and specific things to say and do for that particular person. Sometimes when I ask that the person be shown the root cause of whatever issue they have chosen to address, they suddenly begin to see scenes from their childhood and sometimes even past lives. I guide them through what to glean from reviewing the scenario and often the issue is completely resolved from that moment forward.
How long have you been in practice?
How do you determine what services would benefit a client?
I ask the person’s Higher Self (I Am Presence) and Guides to guide me.
What do you think is the main difference in holistic practice from allopathic medicine?
Holistic health practices are focused on wellness and look at the person and their whole life (body, mind, soul) as a single unit. This viewpoint realizes that every aspect of a person’s life has a huge impact on their wellbeing. They take into consideration their level of stress, the harmony within their marriage, their job, the other people in their life, what they eat, drink, breathe, rub on their skin, etc. Holistic health is all about balance and feeling healthy and whole, both physically and mentally/emotionally, most of the time.
Allopathic medicine, on the other hand, is concerned almost exclusively with the diagnosis and treatment of disease. They look at individual body parts, organs, or systems, and try to figure out what is wrong with it. When an issue is found, they chop it off or give it drugs. Both “remedies” can wreck havoc to the rest of the body and cause huge complications long term.
As an Industrial Engineer, I am formally trained to find the root cause of problems. Even though I worked in a hospital, a doctor’s office, and later as an engineer and manager in a pharmaceutical manufacturing facility, allopathic medicine was not resolving my health issues. In fact, going down that road I was actually getting worse rather than better.
What are some results or experiences that a client might have?
Most people report a huge release of stress, a new sense of calm, a return to joy. Many report the elimination of pain and a significant increase in mental clarity. They usually walk away with advice on things they can do differently in life and tools to utilize to be more healthy, happy, and whole, body, mind, and soul. Almost everyone reports feeling “lighter,” as if a huge burden has been lifted from their shoulders. Some have their intuitive and healing abilities spontaneously awaken.
If you can, give a specific case example including what the symptoms were, why the client came to you and what results they had (you can use a fake name just let me know it is a fake one).
There have been several very dramatic; some would say miraculous, healings that I have facilitated. One was a woman who was suddenly losing her eye sight. She was in a New Age bookstore in Toronto (where I lived at the time) and the owner told her she needed to contact me. She came over and I sat with her simply asking her questions and transmitting energy. Her body began “dumping” toxins. She spent most of the session in my bathroom. When the hour was up, she went home. That night as I sat on my couch, a huge rush of energy came through me. I mean like a truckload. I was burning up from the heat of it. Late the following day I got a call from the woman. That night, as the energy was coming through me, she suddenly heard a giant “pop” in her head and could then suddenly see perfectly. She’d gone to the doctor that morning and it was verified. Her vision had been restored. That, of course, is a highly unusual event and there is no guarantee something like that could be duplicated with another.
One of my favorite stories is of a woman from New Jersey named Renee. She wanted desperately to get pregnant. She was newly married and even though she had grown children already, she wanted to have one or more children with her new husband. We did a session that ended up being a past life regression. In the scene she began seeing from long ago, she was there with her new husband (in this life) and there was a child that had died. I did energy clearing around all that. She was soon pregnant with twins. I visited her at her home a few years later and met the twin boys.
Have you had personal healing experiences and what are they?
I’ve had so many I’ve lost count. I used to run a shamanic healing center in Santa Fe, NM called the Spirit of Nature Retreat. So I know many healers and have had some extraordinary experiences. Probably the most dramatic was the elimination of severe back pain. I had been invited to have a booth at a Divine feminine festival just south of Santa Fe. After arriving, I began having severe back pain. I mean so excruciating I could hardly breathe. There was a wonderful healer there (who later became a dear friend) named Shikiah. Thankfully she was doing sessions during the event and I scheduled one of her available time slots. I told her about the problem and she went around behind me. She grabbed something that was literally clinging to my back in my energy field and yanked it off. She never touched my body, but the second “it” (whatever the heck “it” was) let go, my whole body fell forward with the force of it. Pain was instantly gone and never returned.
Who would you recommend use your services? Who would benefit?
I tend to work with people looking to dramatic change their life, those who want to grow personally and spiritually, get over the emotional trauma drama from their past and step boldly into their highest potential. I help people achieve and maintain what I call the Noble C’s: becoming calm, clear, confident, Divinely connected, and courageous. I also work with authors and entrepreneurs helping them achieve success on all levels with what they do.
Please include anything else you think is important for people to know, especially about choosing a practitioner or type of healing modality.
My advice is always two-fold:
1) find someone who is successful in the area you want help with. That means don’t go to someone with severe health challenges to get help physically. Don’t go to someone who has serious financial issues to get help becoming more financially successful. If you are looking for joy or calm, find a practitioner that is oozing in joyfulness and calmness. You get the idea.
2) follow your intuition, your inner feeling or knowing, about who to work with. It is a far better barometer than trying to read and make decisions with the logical mind based on someone’s brochure or web site. Your Higher Self knows what you need.
