Letting go heartaches

Soon after I prayed for an angel to help through some ongoing heartache feelings, Astuti showed up in my life through a random Instagram scroll.

As soon as I saw her face on video, I could have cried because she gave me an instant feeling of hope and maternal care.

Even though I have done my own healing work and have had the help of many healers, Astuti was able to pinpoint a moment years back that immediately brought me to tears with a huge release.

I am so grateful. Her style is so divine and welcoming. She makes you feel so strong in your vulnerability. I’d recommend her to all! Thank you, Astuti! You are a gift from God!

Dismantling Claustrophobia

Hello!

 

My name is Zori, and I am a portrait photographer, specializing in Magazine-style photoshoots for everyday women, where I take them on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment. And this is how I met Astuti for the first time.

She came to my studio in Vevey to be part of my photography campaign “21 Days of Real Women”. We spent the morning chatting, laughing mostly and of course photographing her beautiful soul. I felt blessed that she crossed my path and graced me with her beautiful inner light. We don’t meet people like this every day, but when we do, it’s memorable.

 

I have been suffering from a light form of Claustrophobia for as long as I can remember. I try to control my panic attacks as much as I can, but as you can imagine, it is a big handicap, when you are taking public transportation, a flight, or worse – a car that has no back doors or the elevator. I am continually looking for the escaping exit, and if there is no one nearby, I freak out and a feeling of “I can’t breathe” overpowers me.

 

In March this year, during the covid19 confinement at home, my Claustrophobia just got worse. I shared this with Astuti, and she offered that we try the “Body Code” technique. It was much needed and very convenient as we did the sessions over Zoom, so no matter where you are in the world, you can do this.

 

Having those therapeutic calls was so helpful. I need to mention that Astuti’s voice is so soothing and I loved her guided talks with closed eyes :).

When I agreed to go on this healing journey with her, I thought that I don’t have significant burdens in my past and I couldn’t explain to myself where this Claustrophobia is coming from.

Once we started, I knew that I was wrong. I guess we all have old wounds that need to be healed. I cried several times when we were talking and revisiting old memories from my childhood. They were very liberating cries, and I felt great after each one.

 

The most important lesson I learned from my journey with Astuti is that we all carry “baggage” from our parents or previous generations, that isn’t ours. It helps you free yourself from that weight that doesn’t belong to you. That all that fear has been passed to me by my mother during birth because she went through the massive trauma of losing her first child. And also, that the origin of my Claustrophobia lied deep down in the lack of parental presence and emotional support in my young years.

 

Astuti helped me to forgive my parents for never meeting my expectations and understand that sometimes we come to this world to teach them something. I grew up and healed in the process. I felt that now the power is in my own hands.

 

As you can imagine, this therapy has dramatically improved my life. The Claustrophobia hasn’t magically disappeared. There is still work to be done there. Yet Astuti gave me the right tools and techniques to control my panic attacks if they happen again, and I learned things about myself and about life that is priceless, no matter the problem you have.

 

The therapy will unlock your healing process, and Astuti is the right person for you.

 

Sincerely,
