My name is Alina Machita , I'm an Emotion Code practitioner and I want to add value in people's life by presenting a form of energy healing called Emotion Code and by it I want to offer my services to many people in regards to their emotional wellbeing. I have been offering the special healing knowledge that I have gained through prayer, study and practice to others around the world.
People often sense that they have emotional issues, but don't know how to get past them. The feelings that seem to be in their way are often due to their trapped emotions. They are usually amazed to find out that their emotional baggage often consists of discrete energies that became trapped during emotional events they experienced in the past. They are even more amazed to see how easily these energies can be found and removed and by how different they feel when they are freed from them. Using muscle test, I quickly identify and release these hidden trapped emotions.
Trapped emotions can affect you physically just as much as they can mentally and emotionally. It is my experience that a significant percentage of physical illnesses, emotional difficulties and self-sabotage are actually caused by these unseen energies.
The Emotion Code is the latest form of healing method that help to identify and release all the emotional blocks from your body in order to promote the natural flow of energy. Releasing these energies can make changes in the way you feel and act, behave and in the choices that you make.
The Emotion Code is destined to change the world, one person at a time. By releasing people's emotional baggage and by opening their hearts, we can truly make a difference in the lives of many and make this world a better place. Let’s change the world together!
The sessions can be done in the comfort of your own home, in person or via internet or phone,
Satyatma means True Soul or The Soul of Truth. Satyatma began his spiritual path with a spontaneous and extremely powerful Kundalini Awakening in 1995.Since then, he has been a student of Yoga, Eastern Philosophy, Meditation and Metaphysics, and has shared his knowledge for over 16 years in one-on-one sessions, workshops, and seminars throughout the United States, London, India and Central America, and is now based at The Yoga Barn - Ubud.
Satyatma is certified in several disciplines including Shiatsu, Acupressure & Reiki, and holds an Advanced Yoga Teaching Certificate from the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres. Also an avid writer, Satyatma has self-published two books: The Nature of Things (2009) and The Motherlode of Truth about Earth (2017).
As a channel, Satyatma specializes in connecting others with their Higher Guides of light. A genuine mystic with developed intuitive and energetic capabilities, Satyatma is a channel who communicates actively and regularly with Beings of High Light and is a genuine inter-dimensional traveler who has long term direct experience with the non-physical world.
A private session with Satyatma can vary depending on your individual needs incorporating body work, channeling and/or spiritual counseling. In every session, he will share how to apply spirituality in a practical way, linking the original knowledge of Yoga and Vedic philosophy with the teachings of most of the world’s religions and spiritual paths - “making yoga philosophy real.”
All of us are dealing with something, We are struggling with stress, unresolved feelings, past traumas, and/or worries about the future, and it's sometimes difficult to do that on our own. Véronique can help you to move past this, by helping you to "take out the garbage" and create the space for a beautiful life.
For the past 15 years, Veronique has been a practicing Life Coach, Business Coach, and more importantly, a holistic practitioner. She constantly deepens her knowledge of different modalities such as Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Matrix Reimprinting, Hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming and ThetaHealing, and includes them in her Rapid Release & Reset sessions, depending on what is the most supportive for the clients and their challenges. Véronique is committed to her clients becoming independent from her quickly, so she usually also teaches the techniques to her clients during the sessions.
Véronique is also available for Akashic Records readings (readings must be done separately).
Some of her clients come to her with burn out, fears and phobia, childhood traumas, addictions and anxiety, or simply because they feel they have lost their enthusiasm for their current life. But the biggest hurdles her clients face are their beliefs about themselves and Veronique is passionate about helping them release what is holding them back from living a life full of joy, love and hope. One of her favorite moments is seeing her clients understand their values and strengths and move decisively in their lives towards the future, having released the pain from the past.
Sessions are usually 90 minutes - they can also be combined with other treatments and activities such as goal setting.
3, 5 and 7 days one-on-one retreats are available upon enquiry. All programs are designed specifically to address the needs of the client (or couple)

Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, Whole Foods & Nutrition Counseling
Liana Nenacheva is an allopathic doctor who began her studies to be a doctor at the age of 16, graduating as a medical doctor at 22, and continuing her studies to become a qualified facial reconstruction surgeon. Most people enter the field of allopathic medicine because they want to help people. The same was true for Liana, even though she came from a very humble family in Khabarovsk, Russia, in the late 1960s, where life was extremely difficult. Her gifts, determination and skill led her to become a very successful maxillofacial surgeon in one of Russia’s biggest university hospitals and she thought she would be there for the rest of her life.
However, Liana found her way into holistic healing when she was injured in a horrible car accident in 20s. A doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture helped her heal and walk again. This changed the course of Liana’s life. This led Liana to make the change from allopathic medicine to holistic natural wellness and she courageously left the hospital and set up her own acupuncture practice, becoming a full time holistic doctor combining western and Chinese medicine.
No longer practicing allopathic medicine, today Liana’s passion and expertise lies with the rejuvenation of human energy, particularly in women who have lost themselves amongst the demands of modern society. By re-discovering their divine energies and understanding their roles, behaviours and the unique demands of their body in this chaotic world, Liana helps women discover themselves and re-claim a state of confidence, compassion and self-love that they never thought possible.
She has been studying & practicing Chinese medicine, acupuncture, macrobiotics, nutrition and lifestyle counseling for 30 years now, and Liana has unlocked the secrets to holistic facial, body and spiritual rejuvenation and has since discovered the interconnectedness of all three. She has begun to channel this collective knowledge and wisdom into “The Living Wisdom Academy” Online Wellness Education, “Whole Life Detox Bali,” and into her books, courses, and retreat programs.

The Javanese define life as "nothing more than a pause on the path to drink a cup of tea". Novi's approach to tarrot is influenced by her Javanese background in Sumarah philosophy. "We start from the idea of our humanity, from the acceptance that we will never be perfect and that we will always make mistakes," she says. This is what gives Novi's readings such an encouraging and uplifiting character.
According to her Javanese belief, since life is continuous movement and reality changes all the time, we have to learn to know and respect what is there for us and at the same time not to get too attached to it. Her belief does not offer solutions, it does not promise salvation, neither does it guarantee success. Her belief is mainly a way, an instrument of life, for life and in life, not an end in itself. Just like the meditation it is a tool that helps us arrive somewhere, but once we arrive, we eventually have to let go of the tool. With her gift she already serve almost 8000 people around the world to find their inner self to her tarot.
"That's the way she read Tarot"

Because of her, I've started to dance, to have more confidence in myself and to understand that nothing is randomin this world. Read more:
Note: NO reading on Sat & Sunday . Please contact me for appointment 3-4 weeks before, Thank You. Consultation Fee: Rp.400.000 ( 45 min)
