Dali Evans - DELEGATE
We, as human beings, experience what I refer to as cycles of development where we take on different career paths and roles based on our creative strengths at that moment in time. I, too, have evolved from the precarious little girl who had the second highest grade average in tenth grade to starting my own business. But, that road had many twists and turns, many shadows of uncertainty and many roadblocks that I had to overcome in order to appreciate where I am today. Singing and songwriting allows me to express my creative energy in a form that touches the hearts of those who hear the melodies and lyrics. It is the core of my being. While traveling along this path, I accepted other gifts I possessed and used them to help heal weary hearts through Reiki and Spiritual Life Coaching. It is most satisfying when you realize who and what you are as an individual and the creative energies you manifest with intention---it is a beautiful thing!
About my company
ARYA Life Design Services provides holistic energy healing which is the art and science of healing that addresses the whole person – mind, body and spirit. As a practitioner of holistic life design services, I integrate energy and metaphysical therapies to assist the body's ability to heal itself but most importantly, to promote optimal health.
I chose this career path because
Throughout my childhood, both my parents instilled in me the important values that I apply to my treatments, such as the importance of integrity for well being. As a singer songwriter, I learned to appreciate how natural energy impacts emotions and through this innate creative source--my music became a natural expressive channel. Music is sound and though inspirational, is quite healing and truly magical. During many years of studying metaphysics and energy healing, I facilitated empowerment groups, Reiki Healing circles and coached clients only to personally realize its true essence. ARYA, a Sanskrit word that has been translated to mean “not ordinary; noble; valuable; precious; and pure.” supports my belief that energy counseling should be unique to each human being. It's with this belief that every day, I strive to educate, empower and heal my clients, empowering them to live better and healthier lives.
