I have been on a quest lately to figure out how to make holistic services more affordable. In my experience, these types of support aren’t a luxury, they are essential. With so many suffering from anxiety, depression, chronic illnesses, addictions, and loss of direction or purpose, having a whole person approach to wellness is essential.
In my own personal journey, I would have long-since gone over the edge if it weren’t for the wonderful healers who helped me understand my sensitivity and learn how to get out of constant anxiety and nervous system overload. They were truly life-savers and no amount of money could ever compensate for what they did for me. I was blessed to have the funds to hire them and later on to be able to trade through my own work, but I know that is not always the case. Many holistic practitioners (me included) have such a strong passion to help others that they end up not charging or offering reduced rates, which means that their own financial needs go unmet. That isn’t a good solution either. While I have some other ideas brewing (and a creative client exploring options for one of the ideas), I felt it was time to at least try to come up with a partial solution.
My idea is to create a Crossroads Coaching Scholarship Fund. This fund will be used to either offer a reduced fee or to waive the fee for those needing my coaching/mentoring support when they are unable to get the resources to pay for them. To thank those who are willing to help others (and also provide them with some empowering support), I will be offering a different monthly gift for those who make a contribution.
JULY THANK YOU GIFT
One of my favorite things to do is to connect with the powerful energies of the natural world. When we open our hearts and let our imaginations soar, we can connect with the deeply wise, healing energies of all that makes up our world. For this month’s gifts, I’ll be sharing a guided meditation connecting you to the mountain energy of the Grand Teton mountain range. I just spent a week in these mountains and the energy of these towering giants is so powerful and healing! I am grateful to have the opportunity to share it with you!
HOW TO MAKE A CONTRIBUTION
When you make a love offering to the Scholarship Fund, you will be directed to a link where you can access this special recorded meditation with the Grand Teton Mountain Range. To learn more or make a contribution, visit the link below:
Thank you for helping me to help others!
Love to all,
Happy Almost Fourth of July!
I hope you are all enjoying the holiday weekend (for those in the USA)! I asked for some spiritual guidance for the month ahead and recorded what came through. I used the Gateway Oracle Cards by Denise Linn as part of the reading. The reading focuses on what needs to be healed, how to heal the blockage and future outcome if we follow the advice given! I also share a couple of special offers in the recording. Since I had a momentary brain meltdown about what my own special offer was for the month, I have included it below, as well as information on the special offer from Medina Massotherapy. See below for the details:
Special Offer from Nancy (Crossroads Coaching) – $10 off a 60 minute Empowerment Reading – Empowerment readings offer a combination of spiritual/intuitive insight with practical coaching strategies to empower you. You can learn more and purchase a reading at this link: Empowerment Readings
Special Offer from Medina Massotherapy (Combines Massage/Reflexology/Polarity Therapy) – $10 off a 60 minute Session: I just wanted to pass on a special offer going on with my massage/polarity therapist, Colleen McDermott Vitko, as I know many of you could use her support. Colleen is an exceptional healer who has a knack for working on the parasympathetic nervous system (the part that most of us rarely relax into!). I feel a big part of our challenge right now is that we typically have an overactive sympathetic nervous system which causes anxiety, depression, and other stress related issues. I’ve found working with Colleen has helped me to balance the two systems (parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems). Her work is deeply healing and so settling! She has a special this month for $10 off a session as she has some openings in her practice since some of her long-time clients have moved out of the area. Her normal rate is $75/session but with the special it will be $65 this month. Her office is in Medina, OH. You can find out more about her practice at this link: Medina Massotherapy

News from Nancy
I am in Ohio for the month of May! My coaching partner, Ryan O’Toole, and I had a great time in western North Carolina and South Carolina for the month of April. We spent a lot of the time near Saluda, NC where we were staying in a beautiful cabin up in the mountains. We met a lot of wonderful people and enjoyed all the beauty of the area. We also participated in an edible plants class with the Earth School while we were down there and have been enjoying being able to collect our own wild greens!
Mentoring Club Benefits Now Free
As I mention in this month’s recorded May reading, I decided to simplify and streamline my communications. I’ve created a Mail Chimp email list where I’ll be sharing a weekly reading with an energy balancing tool and news on opportunities to connect. You can participate for free!

May Empowerment Reading
I asked for guidance on the month ahead and recorded what came through to share with all of you! It includes an opening exercise you can use to help stay centered in love, an image for this month’s challenge or opportunity for growth, an image for the way to the solution, interpretation and insights about the overall theme we are working on collectively at this time. The recording is 20 minutes long and can be listened to here: May 2017 Reading
Energy Balancing Tip for May
I am a huge fan of Donna Eden (Innersource.net)! This month’s energy balancing tip comes from her Energy Medicine Kit. This exercise helps your energies run in the optimal form and activates your spleen which is your inner mother/healer. Very helpful for staying healthy and balanced!

One of the important tools I’ve used throughout my spiritual journey is energy healing. When I went through my spiritual awakening, I had virtually no energy boundaries and was suffering with anxiety all the time. I met a woman at an herb store who offered a type of energy treatment called Polarity Therapy. I started working with her and it was life changing! She helped me to get back into my body and to get grounded. Those of us who are sensitive have a tendency to pull our spirits up out of our bodies when we feel threatened. This sounds like it might help since you aren’t in the body to feel what is happening to it, but the problem is it is like being up in the top of a tree during a windstorm! You end up desperately clinging to the branches, trying not to be thrown out of the tree. Anyone who has spent any time in the woods during a storm knows that you are safest on the ground, close to the Earth when the wind starts blowing. This is true for us as well. Being grounded and connected to our body is the way to be at peace.
One of the modalities I learned over the years was a Japanese system called Reiki. It involves allowing healing energy to flow through the practitioner’s hands into the body of the person who is receiving the healing. I went through the full level of training with Reiki and am a Reiki Master. As part of my own healing, I have also learned many other techniques from different energy healing modalities, as well as techniques used in the shamanic traditions to restore balance and healing to the energy system which benefits the whole person.
The sessions I offer are typically 60- 90 minutes and involves a mixture of energy balancing and intuitive insight and guidance. I have some time available for these types of sessions this month in Hinckley, Ohio. The rate is normally $100/per 60-90 minute session, but this month you can participate for $85. The following session times are available this month:
Tuesdays 3/14 and 3/21 – Evening time slot
Thursdays 3/16 or 3/23 – Evening time slot
Fridays 3/17 or 3/24 – afternoon time slot

Sending love and hugs your way!
