Owner of Journeys.. A Center for Your Soul
Lisa Solterbeck is a light bringer. Through her teaching she has helped me to learn to love myself, accept my story, and live in the present. When I met Lisa, I didn't have anything I "wanted to work on." I have great kids, a great marriage, great job, great friends....what I lacked was a loving and respectful relationship with myself. I can't pinpoint one lesson or illumination that changed me. All I know is I look at everything differently, I trust myself and I have given myself permission to be a human. It would be my wish to have Lisa taped and broadcast to the world 24 hours a day so that every person may have the chance to experience her amazing outlook. Whether you are looking for a life change or not, treat you yourself and take a class or stop by Journeys A Center For Your Soul and you too will see what I am talking about. I thank Spirit daily for putting Lisa in my life.
Lisa is a beautiful being full of love and light with special gifts to help and teach souls such as myself that are trying to figure out my journey for this lifetime. She sees the truth, and is brutally honest, while holding your hand and heart as you are guided towards healing!
Lisa changed my life. I had started experiencing debilitating, severe panic attacks seemingly out of nowhere which led me to the emergency room repeatedly. After trying "traditional" approaches to my suffering (i.e. medication, "clinical" psychiatric visits/treatments), nothing was helping and medication was giving me terrible side effects. Then a friend referred me to Lisa. Her treatment methods are unique as she addresses issues from a "psychospiritual" perspective; it's not one or the other (psychology vs. spirituality), but both together...which is exactly what I needed. Lisa helped me discover how my subconscious (and conscious) thoughts and perceptions were negatively affecting my body physically. Then she helped guide me out of my "fear-based" mindset (which I really never knew I had) and taught me how to reverse negative thought habits. I discovered that the way I viewed the world, myself and others was truly the root of ALL facets of my suffering. My panic attacks eventually stopped...WITHOUT medication! I was thrilled, especially because I got the added bonus of naturally evolving into the person I was meant to be which also naturally allowed my life to move forward and be able to live the life I always wanted. Today, occasionally I will feel an attack coming, but because Lisa taught me to listen to both my body AND my mind, I can subdue it with the techniques or enlightening "truths" she taught me. I will never forget her or what she has done for me.
