Lin is passionate about helping people to find a way to release unwanted stresses as she believes they have far reaching effects on body mind and spirit. Many years of dance training in several different styles has lead to her interest in, and awareness of alignment. Working at first on herself she is studying the connection between alignment and stresses on body mind and spirit and how that can be used to help heal and balance.

Like most psychics, this means listening to an inner voice-and being comfortable in the dream world- frequently being taken out of personal comfort zones, where the road to developing and fulfilling this kind of potential is like traveling though a labyrinth; and trust in what you are being told is essential.
