Colorful Living

by Maria Silva & Ana J. Zick

Coloring our lifeā€¦our choices for healing are as diverse now as the crayon box. My desire for deeper meaning and answers led me to study with many metaphysical teachers and mentors. Their essence and wisdom have created my own personal canvas from which I draw.

I am Ana Zick, LMHC creator of Lotus Heart Center, a unique whole health healing and counseling practice located on beautiful Barnstable Harbor, in Cape Cod, MA.

Myself, along with other practitioners, provide a space for those seeking healing and self-empowerment. Lotus Heart Center emphasizes soul growth and balance, allowing a client's essence and process to unfold, while attaining mutually agreed upon goals.

I bring holistic perspectives to counseling, coaching, consulting, mentoring, supervision and energy work practices in both individual and group sessions.

The Holistic philosophy involves working with the "whole" person within a framework of techniques from many Western and Eastern traditions and disciplines.

There are new techniques which by-pass a person's conscious mind to work directly with their Subconscious, or Higher Consciousness, for direct access to healing.

The focus is on learning to access the highest expression of ourselves by maintaining a health-giving lifestyle. This includes our ever-expanding spiritual awareness, nutritional balance, mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.

I am a Level II Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapist. This hypnosis therapy was developed by Dolores Cannon, a Hypnotherapist and Publisher for more than forty-five years. This unique form of hypnosis accesses a client's subconscious directly.

This therapy allows the client to get the answers to the questions they seek in order to live this life to the fullest. A person may come in with questions about a decision, a relationship, their health, career, life purpose or universal laws and leave with a higher understanding.

I also do a form of energy work developed by Dr. Bradley Nelson called The Body Code, where we identify and correct the different imbalances that cause all kinds of physical and emotional problems for people.

We maintain the health of the energy body by releasing the trapped emotional energies and emotional baggage we accumulate. Imbalances can also be infections, toxins, nutritional deficiencies and/or structural imbalances, and they are addressed according to whatever the client's body needs.

Basically, this work is all about removing imbalance in order to make conditions right for the body to heal itself.

More than ever before, we have the ability to create and expand our consciousness with our colorful energies. We are all unique. Our thoughts are energy filled with vibrations of all frequencies.

There are days we may feel pink with love and kindness for all. While other days may be colored with grey or black reflecting life's challenges and uncertainties. An orange ray of color brings vitality and fun to your day.

Blue days can fill us with peace or sadness. On bright yellow days, we may experience pure happiness and confidence. The color green may embrace compassion for a friend.

As you complete the canvas of your life, remember that you can experience life in the beauty of all the colors.There are no "bad" colors. You always have a color choice, no matter what, and if you get scared, color with your less dominant hand to experience humility.

I look forward to facilitating and assisting you to achieve your own personal wellbeing and life path goals.
