Our Healing is Everyone's Healing
"I have been in several discussions with some male friends about some of the things I have picked up along my path, as well as some things I have realized during/after our sessions. It feels good to see some change in myself. And it is becoming clearer to me that many men actually want to be more in touch with a “softer side”, but feel they can’t in our culture. It becomes easier for them to, when they see someone like me doing it, and clearly benefitting from doing so. Just last night, my wife told me she sees me becoming more and more nurturing. (This is not something I have been known for.)"

"Hi Elizabeth...I am so pleased with my turnaround after our first visit. I have been reading, meditating, and “asking” and then have been receiving a calmness that I so needed.
My paintings are coming along....plus an overall happiness.
Thank you ever so much.....I know it will continue to improve. I look forward to our
TYS, Big Canoe, GA
I want to tell you how insightful yesterday's session was to me! I am talking about the part where you discovered that I was trying to "fit into other peoples' reality".
Since then I have found myself slipping into that abyss again! It is surprising and eye opening to notice how engrained that "thought habit" is for me. I am so glad you helped me achieve that awareness! I am surprised to notice how bad I feel when I do not do what I think will make others happy or comfortable. It will take some serious retraining before I give myself permission to consider my needs. Thankfully I have you, my wise and skillful energy guru to help me navigate through this mine field!
Looking forward to our next session."

Bye, Bye, Stomach Issues
"Hi there, Yesterday was another beautiful awakening. So much to think about. I'm in the process of writing myself a forgiviness and release old hurts letter. Also a lot of old hurts started resurfacing in my mind that I didn't know were there. WOW! Powerful. The stomach issues have ceased.☺ "
Peace, love n light,

Cancer Reconsidered Update
"With Elizabeth's help, I continue to thrive after 6 years of stage 4 cancer treatment. You will read in my earlier testimony how Elizabeth helped me develop a new relationship with cancer which has allowed me to live a full and rewarding life. Recently, though, I had an experience of a more immediate and specific nature; I began to have dull throbbing, as well as sharp, intense pains in my head. My traditional medical care team declared that they saw nothing on recent brain/skull MRIs that would be the cause. Ibuprofen and ice packs offered only temporary relief. AFTER ONE BRIEF INTERVENTION BY ELIZABETH THE PAINS DISAPPEARED AND HAVE NOT RETURNED. This reminds me that there is always more that is possible and if change is what I seek, I have actually dare to engage with the process."
-Sara Lindkrantz, Big Canoe, GA
"I spent the day basking in this new found quiet. I am grateful. I also am no longer carrying that heavy, heavy grief around my heart. Thank you."

Ask. Believe. STRETCH. Receive.
"Childhood trauma, lead to nearly non existent self worth. I still thought I was special but I was never taught self value. I never really understood what worth meant. What I learned was survival. Do what it takes to get what you need…what you think you need anyway.
One thing I always longed for was a connection. A relationship with the small part of me that shimmered with certainty, strength, wisdom, power and divinity. I searched and studied, becoming a student of The Law of Attraction, Meditation, Enlightenment, Transformation, the Power of Positive Thinking and the Ask, Believe, Receive theory.
What was most frustrating was how quickly I settled into…”ok, now I get it,” and essentially believed my own bullshit. I would just conform my old programming to look a little different. I would come up with an enlightened sounding narrative, and be pretty proud of myself, until like crashing into a wall….I would realize “You’re doing it again.” Then of course I would beat myself up and repeat!
When I decided to see Elizabeth, as a spiritual mentor/transformation facilitator, I told her I needed accountability to help me see my old programming and where I’m getting in my way. I was sure God had incredible plans for me but felt I was not fully opting in.
Elizabeth works with me to clear old programming, connect, identify with and nurture that sparkling little girl…who is truly me at my core. She helps me to not limit myself, to not make conclusions, and to honor every step of the process without judgement.
Transformation feels exactly like you would imagine. It is liberating, overwhelming, inspiring, exciting, exhausting, all encompassing, disappointing, rewarding, confusing, and enlightening.
I still like Ask, Believe, Receive.
Ask…you have to truly ask, or for me an ask is more of an opting into something I already know. If I know I’m going to receive something I opt in, both feet, full intention, nothing less.
Believe….or don’t doubt. Maybe, or If is not an option. It’s when. Now, that is not to say that the plan never changes, but it is what it is until it isn’t. I believe it is truth until there is a new truth, until there is further clarity.
Receive…accept what comes your way. There have been numerous times that I have asked and believed and finally when the prize was right in front of me, I recoiled, doubted if I was ready, and didn’t graciously accept the offering as though I knew it would show up. This makes me wonder about the true integrity of my belief.
Ask, Believe, Receive is a great foundation for transformation but I don’t think it does the process true justice. I've realized it is missing, what I call, the STRETCH.
Somewhere before the receive you will be STRETCHED. You will be challenged, sometimes by the minute, to continue opting into a greater capacity. It will feel something like excitement, life, death, overstimulation, realization, utter exhaustion, pure clarity, vibration and truth.
My advice is….RIDE THAT WAVE. Be Stretched. When you think you’re about to break, take one more spin on the Tilt a ‘Whirl. Jump fearlessly on the catapult even if it drags you through the gravel of your ego before firing you through the gates of fruition.
I’m not sure how many people can honestly handle the STRETCH and I get it. It’s a doozy. But I am super excited to be continuously stretched to new capacities and new possibilities. It is what I live for."

"Dear, dear Elizabeth, YOU are my angel----after my visit with you I slept for 3 nights soundly and woke up feeling rested----HUGE!!!!!! When I leave after my session, I feel more relaxed and positive----With your help I will regain the strength and positive direction the universe has for me. "

The Perils of Ego
"Thank you, Elizabeth. I understand why people might be so resistant to this “work.” Facing the truth and being shown my blind spots and then attempting to be willing to transform is hard. It is hard, but not hard. I know you understand. It is the willingness that is hard. The willingness to submit to the humility. Humility is totally different than humiliation. With humility comes compassion, grace and knowing. With out humility the other three do not really exist, do they? Such an adventure. Thank you, as always, for being my Guide!"
Stella McB., Big Canoe, GA
Pain and Rash Update
"I am excited to continue to work towards real health. Your resources have opened a new avenue to me and I have begun to walk the path. My doctor is very interested in the resources too so I will be sending her the links. So, dear Elizabeth, once again you have been my guide to a healthier, happier me!
Many, many, many thanks!"

3 Years of Pain and Rash are Gone
"During the last three years, I have suffered from a sometimes painful rash and debilitating joint pain. Often accompanied by a low grade fever and chills, my only recourse was to "sleep it off." I sought diagnosis and treatment through traditional means: my primary care physician, dermatologist and rheumatologist. Each physician ordered a battery of tests including blood tests, X-rays, and skin biopsies. Each result was non-conclusive. Through trial and error, I was placed on a variety of medications, some with serious side effects. Nothing seemed to "cure" me. And more importantly, a cause could not be determined.
After a particularly horrendous episode of rash and its accompanying symptoms, I sought the help of Elizabeth Devereux. I had met Elizabeth at a Big Canoe wellness event and now felt open to her non-traditional methods of healing. Over the past four months, I have seen Elizabeth almost weekly. She has guided me through "peeling back the layers" of my stress and how I have dealt with stress.
The results have amazed me. The rash and joint pain are virtually gone. I feel calmer and "lighter" with the capability to deal with life's challenges. I no longer take most of the medications once prescribed. The people closest to me have seen a marked change in me, not only physically, but also emotionally and spiritually.
I will be eternally thankful to Elizabeth for her insight and care."
Katie, Big Canoe, GA
From Improved Sports Performance to Better Relationships
"Elizabeth draws from a wide array of knowledge, experience, and techniques to gently tease out and transform the patterns that no longer serve the highest self. The work takes place on both a conscious and cellular level to help transform the stuck areas, which can lead to anything from improved sports performance to enhanced relationships to better health. I feel very fortunate to have found such a gifted healer."
Beth R., Lilburn, GA
"I have been a doubter for a long time... the idea of alternative healing methods made me nervous; but after a third diagnosis of cancer and living with the fear of recurrence for the last 20 years, it became obvious to me that I needed to make some changes in my health care approach.
From the very first session of one-on-one work with Elizabeth, I began to feel completely different - instead of feeling like a victim of the disease, I now feel empowered by my new evolving perspective of it. Instead of being driven by fear and dread of the future, I live everyday with a greater sense of possibility and ease. I am thriving and, believe it or not, living quite happily with cancer.
Elizabeth has a gift for verbalizing energy patterns and identifying and eliminating the ones that sabotage health, especially those that deal with counterproductive thought. She has given me the tools to build a new relationship with my cancer, my medical treatment team, my well-meaning friends and family, and even my chemotherapy drugs.
Her sessions, which incorporate so many years of study and training in complementary healing methods, are not a substitute for my traditional treatments but have come to be a critically important complement to them. The sessions are gentle, extremely relaxing, healing, clarifying...and very powerful.
Most importantly, through these sessions, Elizabeth has helped me to realize that OTHER PEOPLE'S CONCLUSIONS ABOUT CANCER (INCLUDING THOSE OF MY WESTERN MEDICAL PRACTITIONERS!) DON'T HAVE TO BE THE TRUTH FOR ME. "
- Sara Lindkrantz, Big Canoe, GA
After Just One Session
"The power of Elizabeth’s work is evidenced by how quickly I achieved results. I knew that I was holding a degree of emotional stress, but during our session, I realized that I was not even aware of how much of a problem this had become. After just one session with Elizabeth, I emerged feeling lighter and with more clarity than I possessed for many months. By evening, I was pulsing with energy, and despite the late hour, eager to take action on the new ideas flowing through my head. I am amazed that mere hours after our session, a problem that seemed insurmountable for more than a year, resolved itself with shining new possibilities. This would not have been possible without Elizabeth providing an environment where I felt safe and nurtured in the process of becoming aware of the obstacles in my path. Equally important was her ability to guide me in releasing what no longer served me. I am very grateful to Elizabeth for liberating me, and I look forward to discovering what else is possible in my life."
Michelle H., Big Canoe, GA
*A few days later, Michelle shared with me that her renewed clarity also interestingly included finally understanding the lyrics to Elton John songs she's been listening to for 35 or more years! A funny example of how we just never really know how clarity will show up!
Chronic Insomnia Deconstructed
After suffering from insomnia my entire adult life — more than forty years — I had given up hope that I could overcome this debilitating problem. I’d accepted that I would forever be dependent on sleep medication and that I would function at a fraction of my capacity for my remaining years. Having completed my fifth of ten sessions with you, I know now that my insomnia is not insurmountable. For the first time since my early twenties, I believe that I am deserving of recuperative sleep and that it is coming! I appreciate, too, that you put together a personalized pre-bedtime routine for me of breathing and yoga postures that promotes a positive sleep experience. After each session, I enjoy a concurrent sense of feeling energized and relaxed — two qualities I wouldn’t have dreamed could exist within me at the same time. The Bars technique and your expert verbal facilitation, have brought forth a number of profound personal insights that are bubbling in my consciousness and preparing to manifest in my life in positive ways. Thank you for everything."
- Peaches & Smarty's Mom, Big Canoe, GA
Insomnia Deconstructed - continued
It's me again, well-rested and raring to go. Eight sessions into our ten-session program, I'm sleeping between six to eight hours a night---a huge improvement over the four hours a night I was getting before we started. My husband recently told me that I'm looking younger! Everything looks better and brighter now. I can't wait to see what other wonderful changes are in store.
-Peaches and Smarty's mom
From Fear to Freedom
"I have been on an emotional healing journey most of my adult life. I learned fear early as a very young child and consequently have lived a fear-based life. I was in therapy for many years, read countless books and took countless classes. I made progress along the way but always seemed to come to a brick wall.
When I first learned of Elizabeth’s private work, I thought immediately she might just be the missing piece that I had been looking for.
My mind has always been a busy one, telling me mostly all of the things I can’t do and why I can’t do them. After my first session, my mind was silent. Oh my gosh, what a relief that was – the noise was gone. It gives me chills just to think about that first silent feeling.
Now after a series of consecutive sessions over several months, I find myself excited about new experiences – an eagerness and willingness to participate and put myself out there like I never have before. I’m making new friends and doing things just because it seems like fun.
These sessions facilitate the clearing of the negative energy that has been stuck in my body. When the old crap gets cleared out, new possibilities and ways of being in the world for me open up. I’m learning to live in the questions of life rather than in the reasons why I can’t do something.
This process has taught me tools to use when old patterns try to take hold, I'm now able to switch gears. It comes down to a choice for me – do I want to go backwards or do I want to experience life in a fun way? Elizabeth has taught me a framework that helps me to engage the power and choice I have within myself to change my own life in ways I never thought possible.
Elizabeth is truly a gifted healer! It’s hard to believe I found her in my own back yard (so to speak). She has helped me to build a new relationship to myself."
- Mickie, Big Canoe, GA.
Insights Along The Way
"Elizabeth, Just a quick note to tell you how fantastic it is to work with you and to let you know that I appreciate you very much. You have no idea the impact that you are having on me. I didn't know that I could feel lightness, that it's okay to be who I am and feeling more aware of my surroundings. Stopping the judgements...realizing what it is and turning my thoughts to not walk down that path. It's a healing space that was always there ...just had no idea that any of this would be possible!"
"The past 12 sessions have been very good for me. I know I've only begun to scratch the surface. In the past those things that used to keep me "small" were such a negative force and were not working for me. Issues tend to pop up, but I can release them now. I always thought that our bodies were separate from the sky, the stars, and the universe - that all seems different for me now. The universe is always giving back - how amazing is that? I'd like to keep working on ways to increase positive vibrations and continue to be drawn to others functioning at those higher levels. Like I said, I've only scratched the surface.
You are a great healer and I am so pleased to have had the opportunity to work with you. It's a great honor to me that you care and took so much time to guide, listen and heal. "
M.M., Big Canoe, GA
"As a personal growth/spirituality junkie, I can truly appreciate Elizabeth's passion for healing and her vast knowledge of the transformation process. I also know that no matter how "together" we think we may be intellectually, we all need assistance from time to time. After only one session, fifty years of baggage I was carrying went from baggage claim to the lost baggage department! This technique is truly a miracle in every sense of the word. I know that it will take more work and more sessions, but with each experience in Elizabeth's capable and empathic hands, I'm already excited about blossoming into the person I have never been but have always longed to be. I already feel like anything is possible, like a huge albatross lifted from around my neck. You must give this process a go...isn't your health and well-being worth it??"
- Martha A., Big Canoe, GA
The Gift That Keeps Giving
"1 Year after my 12 sessions with Elizabeth and I am still experiencing the benefits of the work. Elizabeth is very gentle and non pushy so it was easy to feel comfortable enough to share details that were helpful in the process. The process allowed me to "let go" of the pain I felt about issues with my parents. A greater sense of freedom that I can conquer anything is now a more common experience for me. And when "stuff" clogs my brain I know how to breathe, focus and let go. My body has learned a truer sense of relaxation."
- S.P. Bend, Oregon
A Stitch In Time Saves Nine
"In the past, I've had the experience of being a chronic non-finisher. Since my first private session, I have completed 4 art projects for a class I am taking. The most amazing thing about the last few days has been the quiet in my brain and in my heart. I have been stunned by the light in my brain. I hesitate to call it space in my brain. I am without words. Thank you. No striving, no anxiety, no hating on myself, no self imposed pressure to get to work; but I could hardly wait to get to work and I did not want to stop. I had to make myself stop before I cut or sewed myself. I am at peace. "
- Stella McB, Big Canoe, GA
Not The 'Work' I Expected
"I kept hearing Elizabeth say at the informational gathering, 'You have to be willing to do the work.' In my experience, whatever work there is in the one-on-one process with her gets done without you having to do the labor! I'm finding as a result of doing sessions consecutively, the goals I laid out specifically are taking me where I want to go; my job seems to stay aware of the shifts and breakthroughs that are happening in my life, acknowledge the changes; the work required is to have the mindfulness to see the growth."
- CMC, Big Canoe, GA
Traveling Pain is Gone
"I've benefited from Elizabeth's yoga and meditation classes, so doing private transformational sessions with her seemed to be a natural extension. Known as a "late adopter"" I finally decided to test a Start Where You Are program after hearing so many others rave about their experiences. I had my first session with the best of intentions, no expectations and a great deal of curiosity. My first session with Elizabeth was interesting but uneventful until 1:30 the next morning when I woke up with a dazzling awareness and clarity. I was filled with so much energy that I couldn't get back to sleep for several hours. The comparison of deleting old computer files to this process is very appropriate and I felt brand new.
The benefits from this first session were enormous and lasting. Immediately, I felt freedom from a traveling pain that hit different spots at various times - knee, hip, lower back, shoulder, neck - over the last couple of years. I would always get out of bed with one of these "hellos" in the a.m. I didn't have pain that morning over three weeks ago and it hasn't returned.
Also I had a stillness and focus; mind chatter was gone along with the negative emotions that would accompany this critical chatter. Memories of bad experiences or stupid things I've done now feel without the painful emotional cringes that accompanied them before.
These two improvements just from the first session alone have made my life so much better and enjoyable. I had my second session last week and am now applying new tools to eliminate the limitations and judgments that have overshadowed by decisions in the past.
I am continuing in this journey with Elizabeth as I look forward to a future of well being and joy.
Thank you, Elizabeth, for sharing your remarkable gifts and passion for healthy living with us."

"With new ideas it is like with dizzy heights you climb: at first they cause you discomfort and you are anxious to get down, distrustful of your own powers; but soon the remoteness of the turmoil of life and the inspiring influence of the altitude calm your blood; your step gets firm and sure and you begin to look - for dizzier heights. ~Nikola Tesla"

Family Ties Get Easier
I've been assimilating my experience in these last few days since my session. Thought you might like to know, as I come upon the 1 year anniversary of my daddy's death, I feel like I was finally able to let him go - big accomplishment! I feel better, I feel lighter in spirit. Nightly phone conversations with my mom have also been better for my husband and me since he and I have had our sessions. Thank you for your time and talent and caring."
- Pam C, Big Canoe, GA
Freedom Without Leaving the Couch
" I feel so much freedom after a phone session with Elizabeth. Miles from my home she can tune right in and shine a light on my issues. She knows how to ask the right questions and then we're right there, in the spot, the root of the issue. Road blocks can then be seen for the mirages they are; false beliefs unveiled; conclusions that limited everything, revealed. I feel joy and possibility, the heaviness lifted. Thank you sooooo much!" - Jeanne Wettlaufer, Wakefield, RI
Leap and then the Waters Part
"Over 20 years ago I had breast cancer, resulting in heart damage that was undiagnosed until recently. Now with a new pacemaker/defibrillator I have renewed energy. All of this happened ' simultaneously" when I decided to do a private program with Elizabeth .. I used the word simultaneously because I believe that when you commit to doing something, there is a grace given to achieve that. So I had no doubt that I would gain great value as I was committed to enhanced health and felt that the Divine had given me an avenue to achieve it. What I appreciate about Elizabeth and her work, is that she sets the stage for great insights to come forward and problem solving solutions. My focus is on grace and ease - connection to the Divine and ease in handling whatever comes. I find it hard to "get help" - I will go to a car shop to get my car tuned, or get a plumber for a problem in that area, but I find myself reluctant to spend time and money on me. Having gotten over that hurdle, I am really glad I chose to spend both time and money on improving the quality of my life spiritually, mentally emotionally and physically."
- Dee Ruzicka, Big Canoe GA
Social Discomfort A Thing of the Past
"Hi Elizabeth. Here is an awareness flash I had after leaving your yoga class: in the past, before starting private sessions, I was not really comfortable in a group setting; now, I look forward to coming and seeing not only you but others who attend yoga. I'm in awe of this shift in my wanting to be a part of a community again... It's a nice feeling and unexpected benefit of our sessions and I'd like to thank you for that."
- Hummus Among Us aka Anonymous, Big Canoe, GA
And I Thought Yoga was Awesome...
I wanted to say that I am so grateful for the sense of well being I have had since my session. Weekly yoga classes with you started me in that direction, but I am really much more at peace with myself and others since after working with you privately. I feel as if I've uncoiled and it is a blessing . Thanks for being the patient and kind person that you are!"

These Sessions Even Make Your Husband Seem Funnier!
Once again I am writing to thank you for the most amazing session. I drove off after my 2nd private session feeling so relaxed and nurtured…like a baby must feel sleeping in its mother's arms. The treatment left me with a sense of peace and feeling like I had just awakened from the most restful sleep, or a really great massage, except that is was so non-invasive. When I went to bed that night there was no chattering in my head and I slept so peacefully and soundly. Here I am, 10 days later, and I can't stop smiling! No stress, worries, anxiety! Even, surprisingly, about customers who are not paying. I just feel invigorated, loving life and the possibilities that are opening up for me. My husband makes me laugh all the time now!! I told him he is much funnier after Bars and that he should pay for my next session. 'With pleasure,' he said. Now, that's a testimonial. I can't wait for our next session."
-Toni, 10 days after 2nd Bars, Big Canoe, GA
The Joy Continues
"I can't keep a negative thought; the mind chatter I've lived with my whole life is gone. I've certainly been enjoying the vivid dreams I've been having since I've started having my Bars run. I feel a new confidence which I really saw in action recently when my husband asked me to do a rather large project for our business that required learning new tech skills. In the past I know I would have felt complete resistance, but instead after Bars, I just went for it! There wasn't anything stopping me. My husband said something I think is a compliment, 'Toni, I love the new you.' I'll take it - I do feel like I am a whole new me."
- Toni, 18 days after 2nd Bars, Big Canoe, GA
And There's More...
Toni has been a yoga student of mine for about 6 years now. After her 2nd and 3rd Bars sessions, her yoga poses made a quantum leap! I could hardly believe my eyes in class one day when she was elegantly extended and spacious in a version of a fairly advanced pose, the Revolved Triangle. So why is this so unusual? Toni is a very high energy person; she often seemed distracted, almost rushed in poses and as a consequence, would sometimes injure herself; she would "fly out of her body" as I call it, especially if I came over to adjust her...
After receiving Bars, even when I give her hands-on assists, she's able to stay with her breath, with her energy focused fully in these more-than-ever gorgeous shapes she is making with her body. I commented out loud that I had never seen her so relaxed, present and engaged in a pose, it was like she had a new body - ?!
She immediately attributed it to receiving Bars. "It's taken all of the NO's out of my head," she said, "all of the ways I used to tell myself I couldn't do a yoga pose." At 67 years old, when it might be easy to imagine that a body can only change so much... needless to say, we're all blown away by Toni's re-discovered sense of grace, freedom and ease.
