What is Evolutionary Astrology?
In traditional astrology, the Sun, Moon and Ascendant are emphasized, as well as the inner and outer planets. Looking at the placement of the natal planets undoubtedly play a role in the big picture, however, with Evolutionary Astrology, there is an opportunity to delve deeper and address the ‘soul’ intentions in this life time. By uncovering and bringing into awareness past dynamics that may have prevented optimal growth and joy, Evolutionary Astrology not only offers insights into where the soul has been, but it looks at your current life purpose, and what needs to be done in this lifetime in order to fully evolve. You may find patterns continue to repeat in your life, re-creating what is familiar, however, these patterns may not necessarily serve you.
Evolutionary Astrology unveils the ‘why’ in these patterns and offers insights and guidance into a soul’s evolutionary path, hence enabling you more awareness, self-empowerment, balance and the ability to live your life reflecting your Soul’s deepest desires and intention for this life.
Tamika offers a compassionate, caring and supportive environment that will allow you to overcome limiting obstacles that have held you back from leading a full and healthy life.
Penny’s energy and passion flows through her work as fully qualified Gestalt Psychotherapist, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Facilitator, Trainer and Assessor. Penny also has a deep interest in Astrology and has studied Evolutionary Astrology with Steven Forrest.
Understanding how astrology impacts different areas of your life empowers you to find your inherent strengths and weaknesses and creates a framework for personally discovery.
As a Gestalt therapist Penny works with her client in the present, right here, right now. This enables any current distress or symptoms to show themselves and be explored with compassion and curiosity. What does your body want you to know?
The premise of Gestalt therapy is that everything that has happened in your life, good or bad, whether it has been dealt with or not, remains energetically contained within your body, the remnants of old uncomfortable issues can manifest as disease or discomfort at some level.
Physically, this trapped energy can manifest as acute or chronic disease, pain in your body, a propensity to injury, allergies, weight issues, addictions and more. Clinical Hypnotherapy Did you know that you actually spend the first seven years of your life in a state of Hypnosis? Up until age seven your brain functions below consciousness at theta level; this is the level of imagination. his explains imaginary friends and how children can get lost in their imaginings.
It is in this timeframe that you were being hypnotically downloaded through what you saw, heard and experienced, these downloads created the files that would ultimately become your beliefs about yourself and the world. These beliefs can either positive and supportive or negative and sabotaging.
If you have downloaded a negative belief which is so often the case, approximately 95% of the time, and this is belief is running your program, you will automatically switch to a default belief for example; I’m not smart enough, I can’t do that, it’s difficult for me to learn, I’ll never get approval, I fail at everything etc. This then creates stress in the physical and emotional body and we experience distress and symptoms as our ability to create is stifled. Penny’s therapeutic passion and expertise lays in engaging with you and uncovering your unconscious self-limiting beliefs.
Penny (www.pennybrenton.com) utilizes Gestalt therapy to access the cause of your distress. By exploring and identifying the saboteur in your belief system that created this distress, she is then able to use hypnosis to undo those old limiting beliefs and install a more compatible and empowering operating program that enables more positive forward movement in the desired direction.
Because every thought you have is governed by your unconscious database of beliefs, what is the likely outcome of success if those beliefs are largely destructive? Clinical Hypnotherapy has the ability to heal all manner of distress without the need for traumatic reaction. What has ever been learned can be unlearned!
Life can be as simple as “change your mind to change your life”.
