Past Life Regression and Soul Trauma Healing

Elissa Bentsen returns to Pixie Dust on May 17 from 11-3 to offer Past Life Regression Readings and Soul Trauma Healing at Pixie Dust.    Half hour sessions cost $45 and an hour are $80.   Call Pixie Dust at 941-366-6325 to schedule your appointment.

Past Lives:  Valuable information obtained from past lives helps you in this life. The root cause of fears and phobias are contained in the distant past. Discovering what you did or didn’t do in a past life brings clarity today.

Soul Trauma Healing is based on channeled messages from spirit guides and light body workers.   The philosophy is rooted in the knowledge that traumas occurring in past lives creat negative energy and that soul pieces leave the body during times of stress or pain, emotional, physical or spiritual.   By removing the negative build up of energy and calling back the soul pieces, healing occurs.

About Elissa:

Ms. Bentsen is a graduate of Florida Atlantic University with a BSW in Social Work. She served as Executive Director of United Way Agencies in Florida for 15 years before becoming a certified hypnotist from the Omni Hypnosis Center. She has practiced as a therapist under the supervision of licensed clinical social workers and is a Soul Trauma Healer.

The Work of Byron Katie at Pixie Dust

Lee Greenbaum, Certified Facilitator of The Work of Byron Katie is now offering individual private sessions at Pixie Dust.  She is scheduling evenings, weekends and day sessions based on your needs.


The Work of Byron Katie is a simple and profound process–a way to identify and question the stressful beliefs that cause us to suffer.  It is a way to clear the mind and end the internal war.  

In The Work we learn to witness and identify our stressful thinking.   Then we question those thoughts and move from confusion into understanding.  We stop believing the thoughts that life should be anything other than what it is.   We cannot stop thinking thoughts.   By utilizing inquiry, the thoughts stop thinking us! It’s the absence of this stressful thinking that gives us the experience of joy.

“The Work always leaves you with less of a story. Who would you be without your story? You never know until you inquire.” Byron Katie 

The Work is not a religion and requires no religious beliefs.   It is not therapy, though many experience therapeutic value from The Work.   Anyone with a pen and paper and a willingness to open their mind can do The Work.

With the four simple questions of The Work,you can inquire into troubling thoughts such as:

“My wife/husband doesn’t care about me.”

“That person hurt me.”

“I need more money.”

“My body should be stronger, thinner ….”

“My kids are driving me crazy”


When we believe the thoughts that argue with reality, we suffer.   As we question these thoughts through The Work, we meet them with understanding and life dramatically shifts and transforms. 

Byron Katie’s bestseller, Loving What Is, is a wonderful introduction to The Work.  It and several other of Byron Katie’s books are available at Pixie Dust.

Lee Greenbaum is a Certified Facilitator of The Work of Byron Katie and has been doing Lee Greenbaum2012The Work for more than 15 years.   As well as utilizing The Work in her own personal daily practice, she offers individual sessions and workshops.   Lee has served as staff for the 9 Day School for The Work at Turnaround House (a 28 day residential immersion in The Work), at events with Byron Katie and has facilitated The Workat Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA.  

Please contact Lee directly to set up a session and with any questions about The Work.  941-313-6179 or email Lee at

Energy Infused Yoga Mats

Check out our new yoga mats from Inspire Me Creations!   They have been infused with     centering and grounding energy.

Energy infused yoga mats
Energy infused yoga mats

The Vital Force Subtle Energy℠ infusing process is designed to enhance the properties of a substance, making it more powerful and work faster. This process changes substances on the subatomic level, changing the properties of that substance in ways that are predictable and controllable.

Through the use of specifically-arranged subatomic energy patterns, mundane substances can transformed into powerful compounds, and then infused into the yoga mats.

Each mat has a distinct border of words designed to elicit a particular feeling or create a certain energy field.   They are luxurious at 1/4 inch thick, 74 inches long by 24 inches wide, extra sticky for great grip during your practice and infused with subtle energy.   What can be better?
