March. 21. 4-4:45p.m. 22 Strand DNA activation – At The Seed of Light Healing Center. A tool for reawakening your true identity. Our planet is in the experience of radically shifting in consciousness. This is wonderful news, as people are beginning to wake up in their lives and remember that there is so much more. However, as we all know, the process of transformation is not always comfortable. As vibration and awareness begin to rise we recognize in our lives where we are not in alignment with our greater being. This will manifest as transition as we cast off that which no longer serves. This could be the dissolution of relationship, change in career, relocation, etc. The change in vibration can also put extreme stress on our physical and emotional bodies. I personally believe that the 22 Strand DNA activation has been the single greatest tool for my own evolutionary process. The activation is designed to raise the vibration in the individual body at a rapid rate. Thus acclimating the new energies more harmoniously and less painfully into our own personal experience. Please join me for a free discussion and demonstration on what this tool is, how this tool works, and how it benefits us in this amazing time of transition. Free! For more information 336.833.6932
