Theta Healer Debbie Talalay gets to know Marianne Hartley of Hartley & Soul

What made you become the expert you are in your field? Why did you start offering this service?

Over the twenty years of working as a brand designer, I’ve had an equal passion for the mind body spirit connection and the effect that our thoughts and our surroundings have on how we feel.

When we look at something beautiful, be it in nature, art or architecture, we feel reconnected to ourselves and we are instantly more at ease. I call this Healing Design.

I decided to create brands that are a true reflection of the values and vision of my clients and their business, so that their brand could become a reflection of the DNA and life-force of their business. Simply by looking at their brand, my clients would feel reconnected to their vision and their customers automatically drawn to their service because it would ‘resonate’ with them on an emotional level.

I launched Hartley & Soul in 2013 to bring two passions together – healing and design – to create beautiful brands that capture all of our senses and leaves us feeling connected to our heart.

Theta Healer Debbie Talalay gets to know Holistic Wellness Coach Geri LaVee

In this interview, Theta Healer Debbie Talalay gets to know Holistic Wellness Coach Geri LaVee, as part of a desire to bring to the attention of her readers a diverse range of experts.

Gri Lavee

What made you become the expert you are in your field? Why did you start offering this service?

In my opinion, for someone to call themselves an expert, they don’t only need academic qualifications for their respective profession; they need personal experiences. This is absolutely true for my case.

In the span of 1 year, I went from being a consultant to being a wellness coach. My background is in business management consultancy; 3 degrees in English literature, business administration and EMBA; 19 years worth of experience in project management, market entry services and business development. But upon the birth of my second child, things changed.

Personal issues with hormonal imbalance, weight gain and the varying moods that followed, all lead to my spark of interest towards beginning to live a healthier lifestyle.

The changes were not only personal, but also professional. I completed an additional degree and became a certified wellness coach. Following this came the early symptoms of perimenopause, with which I struggled for quite some time. In consequence, I acquired knowledge and experience in this aspect of life, and decided to help other women in my position. And this is how I ended up where I am now!

I work with women over the age of 35, who want to get their life back.

What are the core benefits of your service to your clients? Start with the MOST important benefit, and explain how your work impacts the lives of others.

My clients say that they are gaining control over their lives once again, which is the greatest benefit for them. During the perimenopause and the menopause women endure many changes in their body, their mood, their longings and their dreams. Simultaneously, they feel as if they’re losing the soil beneath their feet. This is why my advice and my work help them feel like they’re themselves again. The other benefits are related to reaching their optimum weight, improving their sleep and the return of confidence in themselves.

What advice to you have for others in your line of work? How could you best mentor them?

My general advice is: You can do it! Everything is possible. Don’t stop believing in yourself! I know it sounds cliché, but it’s true. My job becomes very easy if you believe and set yourself up for change. This way, we reach the goals you set, together. I do, of course, give advices. But, I truly believe that hand in hand with the client the changes will really happen. We reach the established goal together and I can see a smile upon my client’s face.

What are the key drivers of people who use your service? What makes them take that first step to come to see you or access your offerings?

My clients are women who are surprised in a way by the changes which happen with their bodies and minds at a certain time in their lives. Most of the time they don’t expect this to happen at the age of 35, or even earlier. And naturally, they think there’s something wrong with them. After going through all those ‘onslaughts’, doctor appointments and chaotic internet browsing for the reasons behind the changes, they decide to seek other professional help. They find me through the internet or through recommendations, which is the preferred alternative to me, as that way, they tend to open up easier and work more smoothly with me.

I work predominantly online. This economizes time, effort and resources. Most of my clients are out of the UK, and this is the only way for me to work with them. Though, this is also the preferred way of work in London, for the same reasons. Of course, I still communicate face to face with some of my clients here, especially with those who have chosen my three-month coaching programme, or those who have chosen a one-day VIP programme (6 hours of intensive coaching, carried out at a private club in Central London).

Apart from my coaching career, I organise retreats, combining my coaching sessions with activities such as yoga, meditation and cooking for perimenopause and menopause. I organise these retreats in collaboration with a leading nutritionist and a yoga instructor.

What is your vision for the future regarding your work? What do you intend to achieve?

I am of the belief that experts like me will always be looked for. In fact, I believe that our help will be ever more appreciated by our clients. What I want to achieve is that I want to reach out to more women, to tell them that what they are going through is a completely natural process, which should be looked at with different eyes. Being this age is wonderful; it brings new beginnings – professionally, personally, spiritually and emotionally. I believe that this change can be beautiful, happy and calm.

What kind of collaborations are you looking for? What other professionals would compliment your work with clients? What other ways would you like to support your clients?

I would be happy to work with people who add value to my services – doctors, homeopaths, practicing alternative medicine. Occasionally, my clients require such intervention. When I realise that I am not the one that can help them fully, I need these professionals, and I turn to my partners. I also happily work with representatives of the beauty industry – clinics, cosmetic centres, fitness halls, massage studios. This enables me to offer my client services, which are holistic by origin. Nutritionists also play a large role in what I do. They help me out in instances when my qualifications don’t match the situation at hand, such as nutritional disorders, etc. I am open and willing to work with other professionals, who could add on to my services.

What else would you like to share with our readers?

There is always more to share but I would like to tell your readers that all women can glow. I strongly believe in this – and I can help you glow!

The Power of Harmful Intentions

The Power of Harmful Intentions

When the mind is overloaded, or when something is too painful, or when the mind can’t deal with an emotion or event it will download it onto the body where it will be stored until the mind is ready to deal with it.
Many of our illnesses have their origins in an event or emotions that we were unable to deal with at the time.

I have a friend who has had a very itchy, raised rash low down on her left leg. She’s had it for the last 25 years and no-one has been able to heal it.
It comes and goes – but mostly it’s there. – driving her crazy at night.
Of course she scratches the area – and wakes in the morning with a raw and bleeding patch which is still itchy.
She can’t wear tights or anything nylon over it – so this means she’s forced to wear trousers most of the year and can only wear skirts in the summer.

One year, it was so bad that it developed into cellulitis.
My friend went to the Hospital for Tropical Diseases to see if she’d picked something up on her extensive travels.
The hospital didn’t know what it was, and did nothing. So my friend tried normal treatments from the doctor who gave her ant-biotics and cortisone cream to apply to the area.
This proved to be horribly aggravating. The leg flared – the itching increased so that it was almost unbearable.
She’s tried every cream on the market she thought might bring her relief.
None of the creams or treatments has made any difference.

When I see a client where the symptoms are not clearing despite everyone’s best efforts – I start to look at what might lie underneath.
What does the brain and what do the emotions need to clear to resolve the dis-ease?
So – last year on a visit, we used The Stamford Healing Process to go through a few of the painful emotions in my friend’s life which might have contributed to this rash.
She felt very much better after the healing – but the rash remained.

So this year – we tried again, and I questioned her on who might wish her harm.
She reminded me that when she divorced her husband her very good friend had made a beeline for him and had married him herself.
And then she had broken off all ties and friendship with my friend.
My friend was deeply hurt by this betrayal.

So we worked on the emotions around this.
Even though she was aware that her ex friend had done her a favour by taking the husband she’d left and by taking responsibility for him as he got older – the leg remained the same.
We tried removing old vows of their 31 year marriage in case she was making herself suffer for breaking these vows. Still nothing.
Then I realised that the new wife needed to absolve herself of the guilt she felt for her disloyalty to her friend.
The way she had absolved herself was by refusing to recognise that her behaviour had been appalling. She transferred all her guilt onto her friend and cursed her instead.

I never believed in curses until I started clearing people of their negativity and limitations.
I thought that they were just superstitious rubbish.
But when I came across beliefs which would not budge and as a last resort tried to remove any curses around them – then I started to get results.

Does this mean that a curse is a figment of imagination in the client’s brain?
I don’t believe so. I think that our intentions carry a force and a power that create what we want – and also what we don’t want. If someone wishes you ill, they probably have no idea how capable they are of causing you ill. They would possibly be quite shocked. But the truth is that when we use our power in the wrong way and to harm – there are deep and damaging results.

I removed the curses sent by the ex-friend – and then, because the rash had started before my friend’s divorce, I looked for others who had wished my friend harm.
We removed what we found. The leg stopped itching within a few minutes. Several weeks later there has been no further itch and the patch has become smaller and less angry looking.

My friend was plagued by this rash for many years. She stored other people’s ill feeling towards her in that location – a safe place where no actual harm would be done to the body. This was infinitely better than developing a condition such as heart problems or cancer. The body is very wise in how it limits what might be harmful.
The Stamford Healing Process has been developed from Theta Healing.

Losing Weight

What we lose is what we must try to find again

Saying we are losing weight is really sending the wrong message to the brain. Because what we lose is what we must make every effort to find again. Perhaps that’s why so many of us are on the roller coaster of weight loss followed by instant and rapid weight gain.

Slimming becomes much more difficult as you get older. The metabolism slows down, and all the treats, snacks and alcohol just go straight to the waistline and the hips. If you’ve ever played Monopoly

– do not pass go

– do not collect your £200

Just go straight to the hips!

One of the problems of ageing is that the digestive system has taken a battering over the years. The liver may not be functioning properly and you may have low level diabetes, both of which will make it harder to shed weight. If the body has developed intolerance to certain foods, it won’t know how to deal with this and will just store these foods as fat.

Then there’s the Thyroid gland which is often out of balance or which under reacts the older we get. The Thyroid is responsible for a great many of the functions of our bodies, including the regulation of weight. If the Thyroid is sluggish shedding weight becomes very difficult.

Then there’s the mindset which needs to be tackled before even beginning on any sort of diet.

This includes

  • the compulsion to reward ourselves with food
  • the knowledge that an emotional pain can be temporarily eased by eating sweets, pastries, chocolate.
  • and, of course, the knowledge that drinking alcohol will not only ease the pain – but will make us temporarily forget.

There are also the beliefs of scarcity – that there is not enough and that you have to eat while food is available. When I was growing up, we were all told that we must not waste food and must finish off everything on our plates because of the poor starving children in Biafra or in China. Of course, if we didn’t finish our food the poor starving children would not have benefitted, and what we did was to teach ourselves to overeat.  This way of thinking was drummed into us after WW11 because food had been rationed and many foods were not available. So there was a much greater respect for food and the whole process of growing it and making it available to everyone. As someone who grew up with that – I think it is all wrong the way we waste food, especially as in many parts of the world there is not enough to eat.

My rethink on this is: – rather than finish off a large portion of food instead of wasting it, learn to take smaller portions and take more if still hungry. It’s surprising how much less is needed to satisfy the appetite.

There are so many diets available and they won’t all suit you. So when deciding which one to do – pick one with foods you like and which you think you can keep to. If you hate every minute and think of it as torture and deprivation, you will soon break the diet and probably go on a binge to make up for the disappointment.

But it is pointless to start on any diet if you haven’t prepared.

  • Exercise regularly to increase your metabolic rate and to burn off the excess fat. Once a week is not enough!
  • Cut out the foods you are sensitive or intolerant to. They can often block the process of shedding weight.
  • If you think your body doesn’t react well enough – get your liver, thyroid and sugar levels checked.
  • Take a look at some of your beliefs around eating. If your beliefs are making you put the weight right back on, consider seeing a Theta Healer who will help you to remove them and to install beliefs which will serve you better

I Hate How I Look

Dysmorphia – a mental disorder characterized by distorted body image and obsessions about perceived physical shortcomings

“I feel so gross – I can’t stand how I look” said a very pretty woman.

She was carrying a lot of weight around her hips and backside – but was still very attractive.

But she didn’t see it like that.  Her prettiness meant nothing to her. She couldn’t believe it that men found her attractive. She thought they just pitied her!

Any attempt to get her to take a fresh look at herself was met with scorn and was rejected.

“In some cultures men prefer women with a big bottom” said I.

But no – I was just trying to make her feel better – and this is how it is, and her only option was to hide her bottom and herself.

What a waste! So much energy and emotion devoted to hating herself.

It would be easy to lose patience, to class her as self obsessed and let her get on with it. But that would be to dismiss the great many people who are so deeply ashamed of some part of their body or the shape of their body, that they come to reject themselves. It is a real and widespread problem and has ruined many lives, not only of the sufferers but also of their families and friends.

The body part they hate becomes the reason for all the things that don’t happen and have gone wrong in their lives. Usually – it’s held responsible for lack of confidence and lack of confidence is held responsible for most of life’s ills – failing to have a partner, never getting promoted at work,

It is useless to try to cajole or tease a person out of it. Unless that person changes how they perceive their body – nothing you say will make any difference at all. They don’t see their body as you see it. To them – their reality is like standing in front of a distorting fairground mirror. That is how they look to themselves. They’re surprised you can’t see it as they do and think that maybe you can but are too polite to tell them how they really look.

If the problem is because a woman – and it’s usually a woman – thinks she’s overweight, it can become so severe that it results in an eating disorder – bulimia (induced vomiting) maybe followed by anorexia.  I have known anorexics who were quite convinced they were grossly overweight even though they were so thin their bones stood out under the skin.

How do people get like this?

It doesn’t help that the fashion industry seems to be mainly aimed at dressing stick insects. The ultra thin shape has become the desired shape for us ordinary mortals – and unless we restrict our diets to two lettuce leaves and 40 cigarettes a day – we are bound to fail.

It doesn’t matter to the fashion industry that to be that thin you have probably deprived your body of the nutrients needed to function as a woman, that you feel faint most of the time, that you have stopped menstruating and that you are unable to conceive. Though of course if you were to conceive – it would mean putting on weight and becoming larger – so maybe that’s not a problem after all.

So we try to look like these fashion models, and when we can’t we feel like failures and start to hate ourselves for not being able to achieve the desired goal. Next thing you know you’re binge eating then vomiting.

The problem may not be weight but your dislike of a body part – such as a large nose. If you have been passed over or rejected it is easy to feel unwanted and to blame this on your big nose and the embarrassment it causes you, plus your loss of self worth because you feel so unusual and so ugly.

In reality – the ugliest people are often really successful because they have decided that they must make themselves really good at something so that their ugliness doesn’t matter. Often they are the most charming and the most fun to be with.

We have been given so many gifts and attributes which we ignore because we don’t have the thing we want. It’s like a child stamping her foot and saying if she can’t have an ice cream then she doesn’t want her dinner.

Many people decide that surgery is their only answer. And yes – surgery can help to restore your confidence – because you now look like everyone else.

But this isn’t the deep down confidence of a person being happy in their own skin.

This kind of confidence only comes by accepting who you are.

It is much easier than one would think to learn how to accept and be happy with oneself. Theta Healing can achieve this easily and effectively.

If you are considering surgery – please make sure that you also learn how to feel happy in yourself so that your transformation can be more than just skin deep.
