I promise myself

Whisper these few promises to your soul in the quiet of each morning, or create your own affirmations. This will make sacred space for healing and inner cheering. It will help you find and follow the divine right path life has prepared for you:

  • I promise myself to live by the authority of my own soul today and to practice being my own best friend and motivator.
  • I promise to speak to myself kindly and to give myself the attention and nourishment I need.
  • I promise to remember that others’ opinions, judgments and deeds can’t diminish me. I promise not to hide out or play it safe but to bring my open heart and Mastermind to each moment with confidence.
  • I promise to believe in myself and in the genius of my people.
  • I promise myself to live this day with joy and enthusiasm, to allow only love and light to flow through me not matter who or what life sends my way.
  • Everywhere I look I will see beauty and possibility, and I let my light shine in service to my people, giving joyfully from a full cup.
  • I promise myself to remember that every circumstance is a pathway to God and that every crisis is temporary, lasting not a moment longer than it takes for me to surrender it to God and ask for a divine solution.
  • I promise myself to remain faithfully aware that God is always here, with and within me. No matter what the challenge, God is the answer. No matter what the need, God is the fulfilment. I promise myself to remember.

Hi, I am Erika Brose and I offer a beautiful blend of Holistic Healing, Intuitive Counselling, and Coaching and I help people to cultivate self-love, heal emotional and psychological suffering, develop healthy self-care habits and reach their goals. 

If you are stuck or are currently struggling with your path we can explore the inner dynamics together and clear the blocks which prevent you from moving forward. After clearing the blocks we can also explore your vision for the future and capture specific goals so that your life can then start to flow in a far more creative and joyful way with new meaning and direction.

What is a spiritual counsellor/holistic healing practitioner?
A spiritual counsellor or holistic healing practitioner has trained in a number of healing techniques. Their training at Holistic Healing College has included, counselling, energy psychology, relationship healing, hypnotherapy, spiritual life coaching, soul plan and a diverse array of therapeutic interventions.
A spiritual counsellor or holistic healing practitioner has recognised the importance of offering more than energetic healing or conventional counselling. The client also receives unconditional listening, sound advice, new resources, empowering beliefs and options for leading a more fulfilling and real quality life.
These integrated sessions address the client on all levels: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Energetic healing creates the space while a practical approach grounds the benefits in the here and now.
