Described by several clients as "practically magic," lllumINNATE is a healing therapy that shines a light on the hidden parts of you.

 

Think of what’s holding you back in your present life...

  • Do you wish you could stand up for yourself better, or feel more confident as you move through life? 

  • Do you feel like you can’t fully trust people because they might betray you or you might get hurt? 

  • Do you feel like you just aren’t good enough, or do you feel like you have to be perfect?

Is it anxiety or worry (about something specific or even general stress and anxiety without knowing why?)

Is it feeling like you always have to say yes, even when you know you are over-giving, or you wish you could say no.

Rewrite your life blueprints to unlock a magical world of possibilities, regardless of past traumas or life experiences.

Childhood experiences (or traumatic events later in life) sculpt the subconscious perception of how the world works. These ideas become the blueprint we use to determine how to act or respond in the world to avoid pain or find love.

Once we become adults, we use our intellectual, thinking minds and understand that some of that information on the subconscious blueprint isn’t actually true, and is limiting us from being who we want to be and doing what we want to do. 

The problem is the blueprints are stored in the subconscious mind, and the thinking mind and the subconscious mind don't communicate easily.  So even though we KNOW we want to do things differently, we are still running off the blueprint. 

But there are ways we can access and communicate with the subconscious mind and clear out those blueprints and beliefs that we don’t want anymore. 

 

Stories of Transformation

From Being Hung Up on the Past to Hanging Up on the Ex

A happy woman is able to deal calmly with her ex on the phone

A strong and resilient woman had healed from much of the abuse from her ex. But she still found herself constantly giving in to the demands of her narcissistic ex-partner when it came to their children. No matter how much she had worked on herself and let go of the hurtful things he had done and said in the past, she would still get worked up every time they had to communicate. It was a rollercoaster of emotions for her, enduring verbal abuse and often finding herself in tears after their conversations. She had already done so much healing, she couldn't imagine there was hope to heal any more.

But then, a glimmer of hope came when her doctor suggested she try IllumINNATE with me (Dr. Whelchel). She decided to take a chance and see if it could help her reclaim her power and set healthy boundaries. Little did she know, this decision would change her life. 

Through just one llumINNATE session, she was able to clear the blueprint and suddenly it was so much easier to stay firm in her boundaries, to dismiss hurtful words, and how to gracefully end those toxic phone calls. The transformation was incredible. She no longer allowed her ex's words to hurt her, and she stood tall in the face of his ridiculous requests. It was almost funny how he would try to push her buttons, but she could now laugh it off - literally! 

With newfound confidence and strength, she was able to stay grounded in the rules of their custody agreement without being overrun by emotions - the feelings just weren't there anymore. She had finally broken free from the chains that held her back and took charge of her own and her children's happiness. 

This amazing woman, once burdened by the weight of her ex's demands, power trips, and hurtful words, had blossomed into someone who no longer allowed those negative energies to influence her. She was now the master of her own destiny, confidently stepping into her power and embracing the life she deserved. 

Her story serves as an inspiration to anyone who has felt trapped and powerless in the face of a toxic ex-partner, family member, boss, or friend. It shows us that with the right tools and support, we can break free, set boundaries, and reclaim our sense of self.

From Burnout to Bliss:  Rediscovering Balance in the Midst of a Demanding Career

A happy woman hikes with her husband as she finds fun outside of work

A talented and ambitious professional held a high-ranking position in her company. She had always been a go-getter and took pride in her ability to get things done. However, as her responsibilities grew, she found herself overwhelmed with the constant demands of her employees. 

Every little question, every minor problem, she felt compelled to guide each employee to the solution or handle it herself. She became the ultimate hand-holder, responding to every inquiry and catering to every need. The dedication she had to her work was commendable, but it took a toll on her well-being. 

The stress levels began to skyrocket, affecting her health and even her precious sleep. It seemed like she was on call 24/7, and the guilt would eat away at her if she wasn't readily available for her team. She felt responsible for their success and feared letting them down. 

However, she decided to try IllumINNATE to hopefully reduce some of the stress she felt. But what she received was much more than that. 

During her session, she discovered a core experience that created the blueprint of over-giving and having to be in control. After releasing the thought patterns, she gained the power of trust and the ability to delegate without guilt. She had KNOWN that by constantly hand-holding her employees, she was hindering their growth and preventing them from excelling on their own. But now she was finally able to let go and let them flourish on their own.

She gave them the opportunity to learn, grow, and take charge of their own responsibilities. As a result, not only did her team thrive, but she also experienced a newfound sense of freedom. 

But that wasn't all. IllumINNATE also allowed her to release the guilt she felt around self-care. It was an epiphany that shifted her life for the better. 

She started prioritizing her health and taking care of herself without feeling guilty. She set boundaries to protect her time and energy, allowing herself to rest and recharge. And as she allowed herself to flourish, so did her ability to lead effectively. 

It was a transformation that radiated from within and spread to every aspect of her life, even to spending more time fully present (and not exhausted!) with her family. 

Conquering Driving Anxiety and Embracing Life's Journey

A happy woman drives her car without anxiety

A young adult had a lot of anxiety around one particular activity - driving alone. Every time they got behind the wheel, if they did not have very detailed directions on where to go and how to get there, their heart would race, their palms would sweat, and they would feel like they were on the verge of a panic attack. It was a distressing experience that made them feel trapped and limited. 

However, one day, they decided to try IllumINNATE to take control of their fears, they didn't know what else to do. It was the first step towards a transformative journey. 

During the program, they were able to link the fears back to being lost in a grocery store as a small child. They were able to clear the trauma from the past experience and heal the fear of the lost little child from the past. 

They started driving with more confidence and a newfound sense of trust in their abilities. The anxiety that once held them back was no longer a hindrance - it was simply gone. If they didn't know the exact way to go or had to take a detour, they were confident in pulling over to look up a map or call someone for directions - easy! 

And the transformation didn't stop there. Something shifted within them as they gained confidence in one area of their life. It was as if a curtain was lifted and they saw themselves more clearly. They no longer held back in social situations, and they even decided to travel overseas to participate in an exchange student program. It was a shift in their entire worldview. They discovered a resilience they never knew they had. 

Transformation is possible. We can overcome our fears and achieve our goals. It all starts with that first step towards self-improvement. And the possibilities are endless. 

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ

How many IllumINNATE sessions do I need before I see changes?

Just one!  Occasionally more than one session is needed to clear a specific belief, but the vast majority of clients only need one to see they are reacting differently and can change habits easily.  Of course, you can always have more sessions if you want to work on other things.

What is an IllumINNATE session like?

We meet virtually, using Zoom.  We will do a brief grounding/calming exercise, then I will ask you what you are struggling with in your present or past life that you would like to work on.  I will then guide you in some different techniques to identify an area of your body where the beliefs are stored, what event was pivotal in creating them.  .  Next, I guide you through verbal and imaginative exercises that help clear the emotional charge and release what is no longer serving you. It usually takes about an hour to an hour and 15 minutes to complete the process. 

What if IllumINNATE doesn’t work for me???

Hey friend, don’t worry.  While IllumINNATE works for probably 95% of people, if it doesn’t work for you, that’s ok.  I got you.  A week or so after your session, if you don’t feel like anything has changed, I will ask you if you would like a full refund, OR if you would like to try again at a later date (I’ll give you my opinion if I think it won’t work if we try again), and if you still don’t see a change, I will refund you half of what you paid.  The things you can do to help it work is to be relaxed and open it it working.  And also, once the emotional charge or immediate reaction to situations is lessened, be willing to change your habitual responses. If you were in the past really emotionally triggered to anger as defense, but then removed the emotional trigger, once you have less or no emotional trigger, where you feel you can respond calmly, you still have to be willing to respond calmly – it should be way easier to do so, but it is still a choice.

What if I can’t do it right?

Good news! There’s no way to do it right – every way is right. Anything, no matter how outlandish you do or say is right.  That’s the fun, free wisdom of the subconcious! I’m a recovering overachiever and perfectionist.  The secret to getting this (easily) to work for me was accepting that anything that came up, that I felt in my body or “heard” in my head, would lead me to what I was seeking – healing on a deeper level, no matter how much my logical brain said, “that’s stupid” or “that can’t be it.” Arrive with an open mind, with the willingness to get on the ride and see where it goes.  I’ll direct you through it, don’t worry.

Will it be emotionally painful to process the trauma and emotions?

For most people a significant event comes up as the one to process, and though it is briefly emotional, the process of recalling the event lasts only minutes, and then the healing begins.  Tears are sometimes shed during a session, occasionally from sadness or hurt, but most often when releasing the belief system and the emotional charge.  Clients are usually uplifted (though a bit tired) after the session

What if there is an event I don't want to have to think about and process?

Luckily, all of the events that led to a belief system are connected - the difficult ones and the easier ones, so if there is a significant event or trauma that you do not want to process, we can ask your subconscious for a different connected event and process that.  Once one of the events is connected, the other ones release as well, like a chain reaction or a line of falling dominos.
