2/3/14 I went to see Asttarte last week; to heal my heart over upsetting text messages with a male friend. As I started to talk I ended up not just healing my heart of the pain of that message, but ended up healing my inner child!!!! The inner child of my twenties to now .was healed. I only one other time came close to healing the child of my past. It was almost four years ago. And was in a hospital And outpatient Setting. When I tried To accomplish the same thing with my therapist something was missing. I would say lets try this or that. But we never did, so I tried hypnosis. This has helped a little, but the work we did last week was like combining two weeks in the hospital, with two weeks outpatient, and hypnosis all in one (if this makes sense). I talked about things So deeply personal and painful. However the whole time threw my tears I felt safe, understood, and not judged!!!! but loved in the sense "you Matter" I use my experience to keep me going. The little girl I call Joy is a work in progress. She isn't At the finish line, but she isn't at the beginning Or stuck anymore. She has friends to help her now!!!! Thank you Asttarte , HM
2/2/14 ... Your loving nurturing presence was the thing that supported me without fail in my process. Connecting to the breath was important. I fell in love with the sound of silence and my own breath. I felt like I was in a meditation most of the time. I was beginning to identify less and less with my thoughts. ... When I started listening to Dolano's open satsang, I saw the ring of truth in everything she said, except I felt a little scared when she said there was nobody. After 3 weeks of listening to Dolano's satsang, there was an incident of calamity and chaos at work. I could feel the fear and panic overwhelmingly. I let the emotions move freely and after about 10 min a feeling of bliss began to build til I was filled with amazing joy in the middle of catastrophe! In this happening, I saw through the illusion of thought and came to know my true nature. All the dysfunctional stories I had built around sex and relatioship dropped because there was no longer any body to suffer. I felt utterly loved and cared for. I realized, at my core essence, I had always been OK! I was free at last! ... Mind may still want to spin a good story. But now thoughts are seen as passing clouds, moving freely, a part of a greater whole, nothing to get worked up about. ...Your love and support were essential on my path of learning what is true! I am so grateful for your kindness!!! MR
Asttarte, ...Your power is like a surgeon's - it can heal, or with the subtlest slip of the wrist, it can also cut where not intended. It seems to me your healing, and your gift of giving yourself, giving healing, giving comfort, giving pleasure, make positive change possible by shining a light that the client can use as a lamp to do what is ultimately his/her own work, although facilitated by you as a catalyst. Your specialized knowledge and understanding are deep, your training extensive, your self-realization and obvious effort at pursuing a spiritual path is inspiring, and your generous and unselfish willingness to impart to others - already obvious to me - is immense and unusual. Your penetrating intuition, empathy, as well as expressiveness and feeling are comforting, reassuring, affirming, and nothing short of a gift I already cherish. D."
"Asttarte, Thank you for a wonderful session this past Saturday. Your session helped me a lot, and I am grateful for the time you spent with me. It really helped me a lot, and gave me a connection with myself that I had lost for a long time. I would definitely continue my sessions with you.
"Asttarte, Again, thank you for your loving trust and honor you gave me last our last session. I never felt so understood in my feelings about how I wanted to make a woman feel loved as a person and not just a sex object. You are very good at what you teach. Respect & Love! H"
"Asttarte: My visit with you earlier this week was amazing! Your spirituality and sensuality are what I would consider gifts...You have a healing power that I would not have believed if I personally did not experience it. I enjoyed every moment of your healing and felt rejuvenated and changed after two hours in your presence. I plan to continue to see you each time I am in the Philadelphia area and look forward to more spiritual growth." JMB
"Hi Asttarte, Just wanted to thank you again for our time together. I did feel all the stress leave my body and I will continue trying the breathing technique you showed me. I do wish we could spend more time together. I wish you luck on your own journey. Your friend always, J."
"Asttarte, Just wanted to send you a message to let you know that through the years I have experimented with healing, I have to say that my most memorable experience was with you. You are beautiful both inside and out and are a true professional. Have a great day and looking forward to seeing you again. B.D. from Delaware"
"Asttarte, ... thinking of you and of your generosity What I learned from the brief times that I spent with you is that I matter. That physiologically I am fine. But more than that I learned a few things that I will take forward with me. One of those things is about myself; about me being a sexual being. And that what I wanted deep down is to express it, feel it, and have my own enthusiasm for it be returned. That is the one thing I got from you. I hope that came across the way it was meant (as a compliment). .... I did want you to know that being with you was one of the most peaceful experiences ever." Always, Richard
"I was engulfed...by your spirituality. You treated me as though I was all that mattered to you and time slowed to a near halt to witness. Dealing with my apprehension and fears, you have made me face and overcome many of them. I dare not graduate to conquering all of them; because, I want you around for a long time. Please continue to sharpen your sensitivity, fulfill your focus and sensationalize your sexuality and the sky will open to unlimited opportunities and vivid dreams. I only ask one thing of you during your rise: Take me with you." -regular client, 4/28/06
"Warm regards! Please accept my sincere thanks for yesterday’s session, together. It was such an awesome experience, and I thank you for your energy, love, and sacred healing. I feel renewed in heart, mind, and spirit. Namaste!" - T., client
