Gateways to Awakening is a gateway for your own spiritual journey. Today, people are suffering from stress and anxiety like no other time in history.

In one on one conversations with leading experts in wellness and spirituality, Gateways to Awakening will share best practices and offer a gateway to help those who are interested to expand their awareness and consciousness. We’ll be asking these questions and more: How can we become more connected to ourselves and bring greater awareness to our lives?

I have known Yasmeen for years as a friend and a healer. This podcast is a reflection of her offering the gifts of healing, awareness, and consciousness to her audience which I predict will continue to grow. These conversations feature some of the most talented and dedicated practitioners in the field energy, healing, and conscious awareness, all of whom bring a sincere desire to help us all navigate this odd and challenging time in our history. Her content is relevant, her guests are wonderful and talented agents of positive change, and I look forward to seeing what talent and content she'll bring to us in the future. I would recommend Gateways to anyone interested in truly exploring themselves and the world we live in. Hats off Yasmeen. Very well done. - Michael

How to cultivate self-love and connect with your inner-healer with David Elliott 

Today’s episode on Gateways to Awakening is with David Elliott. After a move to LA from Kentucky to pursue acting David met with mystic healer Tim Heath. Afterwards, Elliott connected the dots of many chance meetings with strangers—people claiming they had been sent to him for “healing” by their guru in India or their psychic in New York.

With the help of Tim, David learned to recognize his unique ability to feel, move and shift stuck energy; the healing work soon became his passion and the “reluctant” phase of his life dissipated. By 1997, his acting career had successfully transitioned to a full time career working as a healing artist.

We talk about the following and so much more:
✅ Why he calls himself “The Reluctant Healer”.
✅ What energy means to him and what his energetic gifts are
✅ Tools we can use to clear ourselves and get grounded - and why breathwork is so important
✅ Why is self-love such an important vehicle for healing?
✅ The difference between the mental level, the emotional level, and the spiritual level
