A Short Aura Reading Changed the Course of a Life
Brendan Klosterman, a teacher at Psychic Horizons, began studying energy healing in high school when his parents took a Pranic Healing (a form of energy healing) workshop with him. He was fascinated by the ability to detect the unseen world of energy and decided to move from his home in Ohio to Boulder, Colorado, in search of an academic degree as close as possible to energy work. He attended Naropa University and studied psychology at the Buddhist inspired school that integrated meditation into their classes. He became interested in Psychic Horizons when he was introduced to the experience of an aura reading. He was astonished and intrigued by the transformational impact that even a short aura reading had upon him. (You can sign up for a free aura reading on Psychic Horizons’ website.)
A few months later he attended the Psychic Horizons foundational class “How to Heal Yourself” with a friend. He learned tools and perspectives about how to be more skillful helping people, how the mind and body worked together and how to regulate his energy in relationship. These tools became valuable for more successfully navigating relationship dynamics with friends, family, partners and mental health clients that he lived with as a therapeutic housemate over the course of five years.
While Brendan had been meditating on his own for years before he encountered the psychic tools and practices from Psychic Horizons, those tools and practices allowed him to take that meditative presence into relationships and off the meditation cushion. They gave him clear and effective methods to bring what he had cultivated through meditation into his job and relationships. He was able to more fully stay in relationship with people while regulating his emotions, instead of distancing himself from others and meditating on his own to regulate his emotions. Using these tools allowed him to have more self-mastery within relationships.
He didn’t attain self-mastery without obstacles, as all journeys of self-growth include obstacles that propel growth. Times of self-growth are called “growth periods” at Psychic Horizons and students there are taught how to work with them effectively so they are not as challenging. Brendan’s obstacles and self-growth often had to do with not feeling good enough and over-complicating the skills he learned. He often was driven by perfectionism and had a hard time keeping the techniques he learned simple and straightforward in his mind.
In addition to learning the tools, Brendan regularly practiced reading in the student reading clinics and was able to develop self-acceptance and simplification of his mental concepts. The clinics allowed him the opportunity to learn how clairvoyance worked experientially, rather than only learning from a book or teacher. He gained experiential wisdom through this process and was able to integrate that wisdom in his being, which was quite different than memorizing information from a book to pass a test. This inner wisdom gave him a foundation to make choices in his life that were more congruent with his own truth, which allowed his life to run more smoothly.
One common obstacle to clarity is identifying with other people’s information and energy. As Brendan disidentified from other people’s information through practicing reading and taking classes, his sense of what was real and important in his own experience grew stronger. He developed his own wisdom about what was true and gained greater self-esteem, self-confidence, self-acceptance and stability of his sense of self. He became more certain about who he was and what he knew. Throughout his growth into experientially understanding his own truth, the staff at Psychic Horizons maintained a safe and neutral energetic space for him, which was crucial in being able to delve so deeply into healing himself.
Brendan uses the tools he’s learned at Psychic Horizons every day in his meditations and really enjoys utilizing a meditation space from an advanced Psychic Horizons study track where you go to the point between your last lifetime and this lifetime. It’s a space of pure spirit and a powerful place to purposefully create the energy of this life and to purify the karma that was brought into this lifetime. Daily meditation in this space helps him maintain an even keel throughout the karmic bumps of the day.
A few years ago Brendan was being evaluated by a psychologist after a concussion. She noted characteristics that well describe an aspect of his teaching style. She remarked in her evaluation that, “he had a good sense of humor that brought some levity to the process. At times, he was silly and found pleasure in his own silly humor.” Brendan’s ability to cultivate amusement in his relationships with his students helps keep the ups and downs of personal growth more fun and light-hearted. He can be goofy and silly, quiet and gentle, and deep and insightful with a caring eye. He is able to look out for your soul’s journey in a way that only comes from someone who has done thousands of hours of inner work.
Often you start out on a path of self-growth feeling uncertain about what is influencing your choices and experiences. You might not be clear about which choices to make in your life and whose advice you should take. The inner work you can do at Psychic Horizons helps with clarifying your truth while differentiating from others’ truths. Not only does this bring balance and clarity to your choices and your life journey, but who knows, it could change your life in a very welcome way.
