Akashic Readings & Harmonic Union Testimonials

I just wanted to Thank You for a powerful, enlightening and inspiring Akashic Reading & Healing session!! Before my session, I was feeling stressed out about the circumstances in my life. I have been feeling overwhelmed and confused. Our session has made a HUGE difference in my life and now I have clarity on a number of issues! My perspective has shifted and I feel like a new person! Talking with you has made such a difference in my life! I look forward to connecting again. You are an Angel!!    With deep gratitude and appreciation Sandy

I’ve been feeling really good since my last session (Harmonic Union Energy work). The general anxiety that I’ve had for so long has diminished greatly. Changes are easier to make & come more naturally. I see things more clearly, decisions are easier to make too. I’m actually often feeling quite fabulous lately, which I am enjoying. And I’m feeling more settled into myself & comfortable with it. Thank you Holly Hampton

Thanks so much for the reading and akashic healing! You have an awesome talent. This work week has been so positive. I can really feel a change already. My current boss (mother in a past life) has been smiling and actually pleasant to me – she even said thank you today! Such a difference! Melinda

My dear dear Colleen!!!! I just wanted to thank you for the powerful healing work this past week. I want everyone to know what a treasure you are and that I feel so lucky we have someone like you to turn to when life gets very dark, scary and unpredictable. You helped me walk through a period of great difficulty. With your gifts and access to a world of energy most of us do not understand, you gave me healing, restored my faith and reminded me that you are always there for someone in need of your specific gifts. You are truly a healer, a friend, and a pillar in this community, indeed, in the world! I give you my thanks and universal blessings! I am the miracle because you are the miracle. My friendship and love always!!! Tim Bauman

Sacred Intent Workshop – Body Wisdom Testimonial – “I was not sure what to expect from the body wisdom session. I attended during a time in my life that I was interested in becoming more spiritually strong, by understanding how to live in tune with and in control of my spirit. The session was much more impactful for me than I had expected. I left feeling like I was in tune with my whole self, uplifted and spiritually nourished. Previously, I had been having difficulty with an unwelcome spiritual visitor during my nighttime dreams and even during daily life. The same evening, I was excited to go to sleep, something that I had recently associated with nervousness. I slept soundly and securely, with vivid dreams of my spirit dancing in prairies and rowing down the Amazon River. I was so happy; I hardly wanted to wake up. My body felt relieved and my spirit felt rejuvenated. While my journey to spiritual health and happiness is certainly not over, I know that I now have the tools to continue with a unified spirit, body and soul alliance. The decision to remain spiritually strong and in control is mine to make.” Anonymous

Trust me people, reiki is life changing and all for the better. Opens up the enlightenment process, brings inner peace and awareness and the most loving form of healing. Colleen is the very best at teaching this wonderful healing art form! Patsy – Wisconsin

I have had many readings with Colleen and she has helped me and my family through some challenging times. One of the most amazing experiences was for something I didn’t even come to her for! In my reading, she told me that I had something attached to the back of my shoulder. I had not told her that I had been having pain there for the past two years. That pain was associated to feelings and broken contracts with someone very close to me. We healed that – and I walked out of there pain-free. Something pain medication and countless massage, chiropractic or acupuncture visits were unable to do. Colleen and the Records will open you up to a you that you haven’t consciously met yet. Carissa Rideout

Colleen, It was so nice speaking with over the phone. I just want people to know that you have an endearing heart with good intention. You made me understand relationships and their similarities from past to present life. I listened to the scenarios played out in my past life, which helped me understand my present condition today. It may seem far fetched to some but as you spoke things clicked. There is no question in my mind that my consciousness changed for the better and with that I am grateful. Much success with your care and guidance. Blessings, Nova

I would like to encourage anyone who may be “on the fence” to step out of the box and go exploring (the Akashic Records) with Colleen. I can speak from experience, her readings are soul touching. She has a gift and spirit that can help sort out feelings and assist you in answering questions that many may have. Her character, integrity, kindness, compassion, and most of all the Love that she carries is profound. Bonnie Ewton

When life is hectic, it is hard for me to stay clear enough to make important decisions. It can appear as though I am in the dark with many paths to choose from. Colleen helps me connect to the wisdom I have deep within. She helps me align with the light, so that I can see clearly which path is right for me. Colleen has a deep powerful energy that carries through in her sessions. Her ability to connect to the spiritual world while relating it to the earth plane is nothing short of amazing. Thank you, Debby

I just wanted to thank you again for such a really wonderful reading for both my mom & me. I have seen what a powerful affect it had on my mom. The energy around her is bigger and stronger. I feel it was her self-confidence that improved more than anything. I took her shopping at Macy’s for some new clothes for when she meets the man she has been manifesting all these months. I have ALWAYS seen this MAGNIFICENT person my mom is, and it has always amazed me that no one else saw what I did – especially my mom. She always thought I was a little biased when I told her how I see her, she is a powerful, loving, person capable of so much! I kept telling her & wished she could see what I see in her just ONCE. Well, after YEARS of waiting – it has finally happened. I can’t even tell you just HOW MUCH this has meant to me. My heart has been super happy and I feel
so extremely Thankful to you for changing my mothers life. I just thought it was important that you know just how powerful an affect you had on our lives. From the bottom of my heart – THANK YOU!!! Sarah – Denver, Colorado

I was completely unconscious before I met Colleen. I was in denial, trapped by my fear based beliefs that no longer served my highest good. The reading she gave me broke me free of those fears, and I am on a new, beautiful, joyful path of self-realization! I am now awakening & becoming conscious of who I really am. I pay attention now to the beautiful Universe & spiritual realm that surrounds us. I feel more alive than I ever have. My life has changed! I am extremely grateful for this change! I believe Colleen to be a tremendous blessing to us as a beautiful messenger & teacher of all things our souls long for on this planet-love, light, healing, connection, joy, peace…. Kristina Honshel

After studying Edgar Cayce for several years, I found myself wishing I could have my Akashic record read. But knowing Edgar Cayce died in 1945, I assumed it would be an impossible feat. However, recently I found Colleen Helgerson on the internet and decided to give the Akashic Record reading a try, only to find that the experience was as in-depth and as intuitive as Edgar Cayces’ readings were. Not only has this reading given me an insight into myself, but also into my past, present and future. It appears as though, as I re-listen to my reading, I continually find new direction in my life endeavors. Thank You Russ Nottingham Ohio 

Thank you once again. This reading really clarified so much for me. It was life changing. Anna Yonkers, NY

I thoroughly enjoyed the reading. I haven’t been the same since, to be very honest. I found myself in brief moments of tears more than once yesterday – in shear joy and relief – that it’s all going to be okay. You confirmed a great deal of what I believed to be true – and even more than I knew – I feel at peace. I can’t wait to really experience life … the reading gave me permission to truly drop all my fears, once and for all, and just go for it. Wow, did I need that. Thank you so much for being “on my path” in this lifetime. Shawna Illinois 

Thank you so much for the excellent reading, Colleen.
I don’t know how to thank you enough for your insights. — Michelle

Colleen, Just wanted to write an email, thanking you again for the reading today. You really helped me to put some things in order and hopefully give me closure on a lot of hurtful things in the past, so I can live a fruitful future. It was a remarkable experience and I’m just awed how everything in my life you could really pickup on from the records. I found it absolutely fascinating and eye opening.  It made me also feel I did the right thing in quitting the job, due to (following) my bad vibes. I’ve just always been one to worry about money and making ends meet, due to being a single parent and times have been tough.Thank you so much again; we are referring more people your way.
Peace, Kristine

What a wonderful sessions! Gracias! You really provided such life-changing insights!
Joyful Blessings, NY, New York

Thanks so much for the help the Akashic reading provided, as well as the tape. I have about worn it out listening to it and seem to get something new from it each time…depending on where my soul is at the time. Jan

I’d never had an Akashic Reading before and didn’t know what to expect. After having my first Akashic Reading from Colleen, I was filled with an excitement and joy that I hadn’t felt in a long time.  In the course of the reading there was laughter, tears, surprise, and a clearing that has allowed me to have peaceful dreams about my deceased husband that I was unable to have in the 18 years since he made his transition.  The reading was powerful, enlightening and inspiring. I’ve been high on life ever since.  Life is good and getting better.  That’s my new affirmation since having my reading with Colleen . . . Vivian – Downers Grove, IL

It’s been several months since my first session with you … so much has changed! I’ve learned so much about myself as I define the details. I have listened to the tape you mailed to me many times. Each time I listen to it I hear exactly what I need to hear to help me move through to the next moment with a sense of peace … knowing that all is well and “things will unfold beautifully” … as you noted in our session. i just wanted to take a moment to thank you again. Your words to me have been such a source of comfort. And, I do plan to work with you again… Shaunna

Colleen, the recording you sent arrived, I just finished listening to it. Time and perspective can help to make the messages even more clear. Thank you, Eliz. Scott

I found Colleen through her Website. From my first correspondence with Colleen, I found her to be very engaging and very secure with her gift. Upon completion of my Akashic Records Reading, I felt a sense of peace, like I had reached an important milestone in my life. This would not have been possible had I not been able to consult with her. Colleen’s gift is real, her ability magnificent and her kindness beyond expectation. I have recommended her several times over, she is that wonderful and I will continue to consult with her as needed in my life . . . Teresa Harrington Atlanta, Georgia

I received my reading @ the beginning of July and I am still learning from the tape you sent while recording these beautiful messages and words of wisdom.  You are truly a divine spirit sent from our vast spiritual support system and I have never felt so blessed to have worked with anyone other than our teacher – Sonia Choquette.  Words cannot describe my gratitude and immense energy which I continue to feel. Every time I listen to our recorded session,  I continue to learn from it. I cannot wait to work with you again one day!  To work with you in person would really be awesome! Colleen, your patience, knowledge and peace of mind which clearly came across in your session helped me to stay in complete comfort. I knew and felt that I could say/ask anything and your answers given to you by your training and Support System would help me for the rest of this life. Connie

You knew nothing about me or my family – yet you were able to deliver all that was needed, as if you knew us our entire life.  Truly amazing! By the grace of God I have found a friend and divine Lady to count on. Please do not stop as our Universe wants and needs people like you. I will contact you again and I send you many blessings.  Between you and Sonia my life is changing for the better.  To all who read this -ask Colleen and it is given . . . With Sincere Gratitude, Carla

I just read your Inviting Bliss column … I swear I could hear you as though you were telling me this, instead of me reading it. Look forward to reading more. Cheryl N.

Distance Healing Testimonial

Even when you are open-minded to complimentary health care methods, sometimes a wellness opportunity comes along that seems a bit strange.  Having used Reiki myself for general wellness and then going on to take Colleen’s Reiki I and II courses, even I wondered how effective Reiki could be when sent over a distance. I initially made an appointment to travel to Dubuque for a session with Colleen, to address an allergic condition but decided to try a distance Reiki session at a prearranged time instead. I literally could feel myself receiving the energy that was being sent to me and it was very clear that the sensations were having a soothing and balancing effect. Heat pulsed in my hands and feet, beautiful colors passed before my closed eyes,  and I felt cared for in the most wonderful way. As I could sense the session ending, I felt energized yet very calm. I decided to just lay still for a few more moments only to wake two hours later from the soundest, most restorative sleep that I had in months! I credit this distance Reiki experience with setting me firmly on the path toward healing and would like to encourage anyone who has considered distance Reiki to feel totally comfortable in arranging a session with Colleen. ~ Lauren, Cedar Falls IA

Class Testimonials

I cannot say enough about Colleen, and the knowledge that she offers.  I have been blessed to take many classes with her. She has so much information in multiple healing and intuitive modalities. And presents this information in solid form.  I have taken classes both in person and through a webinar, and each method allows the opportunity to study, ask questions, and learn. I walk away from each experience with Colleen in awe of what she has taught. She is very thorough, and I highly recommend all of her classes! Rebecca

Colleen’s classes are so worth taking. For me they have had such positive impact on my everyday life. Reiki is such a wonderful experience. Everyone should try it!. Cathy Wienen

I took ShinJiro 1 in person with Colleen Helgerson in October of 2015 in Buck’s Co. Penn. and ShinJiro 2 remotely via video course in July 2017. The attunement experience was amazing. I learned so much about myself during the process and the blocks that were present in my path. Using the tools I have learned in ShinJiro 1 & 2 I am actively healing and moving forward in my practice. Colleen is always very nurturing and powerful during training and that energy comes through in the video course as well. Shannon W. – Ohio

I have taken several classes with Colleen Helgerson over the last several years, the most recent being ShinJiro. Every offering I’ve joined Colleen for, brings it’s own unique group of participants and opportunities for learning, but also a deepening of connection with self and the Sacred Energies whom support us … Shinjiro was no exception. Colleen provided a safe, comfortable environment for learning, pushing limits of what you think you know and understand about energy and your own connection to it. Colleen’s passion for this modality is evident in her teachings and how she engages her students. While I’m accustomed to healing within the Akashic Record, this Shinjiro attunement was a beautiful gift, bringing in new energies & symbols to commune with. By the end of the class I felt very comfortable and confident with the new tools and have enjoyed incorporating them into my healing practice! I highly recommend Shinjiro with Colleen. It will certainly build or enhance any energy practice you’re currently accustomed to. Stacie – Marion, Iowa

Trust me people, reiki is life changing and all for the better. Opens up the enlightenment process, brings inner peace and awareness and the most loving form of healing. Colleen is the very best at teaching this wonderful healing art form! Patsy

The LodeStar Akashic Records class can change your life. Beautifully. Let it! Kristina Marie

Learning to read the Akashic records is life-changing, regardless how you decide to use it. I enter my own records daily – for help on my life purpose; to help understand myself; to help me prepare at work; or just to help me interact with challenging situations or people. Colleen is a truly inspiring teacher. She teaches with humor, encouragement and love. I find myself wanting to attend all of her classes! Carissa

Colleen, I want to tell you how deeply meaningful the Akashic Records Class was for me. As a result of this experience, I’ve been able to open my heart to “new” ways of seeing “old” situations. This has enabled me to move on with my spiritual journey. The Lodestar Akasha class and your teaching style (from the heart) gave me the “push” I needed. Kathy Holmquist

What I find the most beautiful about going into someone’s records is the way I feel about that person afterwards. Being in their records, allows me to see them as the amazingly beautiful soul that they truly are. The Records not only help me in my daily life – they allow me to see real love in other people. For that, I am grateful. I have witnessed the power of the Records in my own life and in many others. If you have contemplated attending this class – DO IT. You will not regret it. Colleen and the Records will open you up to a you that you haven’t consciously met yet. Carissa Rideout

Thank you for your workshop. I feel like I gained so much confidence in my ability to see.  It was so helpful going into each other’s records and then you commenting along the way, like a narration along with the museum tour. Thanks again for your great mix of left and right brain presentation. I really enjoyed your workshop style.
Much warmth, Adina Iowa City, Iowa

2 months after class …
I feel like you have given me the last piece of faith in this type of work that I needed to truly believe and stop second guessing.  I have been doing  a fair amount of Akashic Readings … It has gone very well, with some great validation during the actual readings and after. I really feel like after the Akashic Workshop with you, I just believe, period. There is something about you that seems so normal and spiritually connected at the same time. This is the kind of role model that suited my last need  – “I can be normal and spiritually connected at the same time.” The amount of time you spent discussing this topic was really invaluable for me. Thanks again, Adina

Thank you…. your absolute confidence in others is an energy all in itself!
Candy Duve Dubuque, Iowa

I found the akashic records class to be amazing. I have done intuitive readings for years but now I can go so much deeper, receive much more clear information and am more confident in my connection. As a teacher Colleen is so heart-filled, effective, patient and thorough. Thank you so much Colleen for connecting me!
Tracy Galena, IL

I have been meaning to e-mail you since we had our class. I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your (Akashic) class. It was really good and I learned a lot. In a way, it was also rather surreal. I had that day already planned for few months and felt complete after the class. I had asked for someone to help me understand all the interesting things I have been experiencing. It is so true that when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. Thanks for being my teacher!  Beth Holstein Des Moines, IA

Thank you so very much again for an awesome day!  I have spent a lot of time in groups. You have an amazing gift for helping people work through their fears and feel so comfortable.  I really felt a genuine connection with this group and I believe it was your loving facilitation that made it happen.  Candice – Illinois

Learning how to enter and explore the records for yourself or another person opens a whole new dimension on life.  The records expose the needs you have currently in your life, shed light on your past experiences and guide you in your future. Colleen has a unique ability to help you develop the Akashic work and does it with skill and enthusiasm. – Pam Catlin

After experiencing and loving my personal Usui practice of 10 years I thought I’d try Karuna Reiki too. It blew me away! It is such a beautiful and powerful energy and has absolutely elevated my overall Reiki experiences and practice, I know you will love it too! I cannot recommend these classes enough. Tamara Maury

MaChiAh Shamanism Testimonials

I have been fortunate enough to attend two of Colleen’s wonderful workshops (Houston, TX and Fayetteville, AK). Colleen takes me directly back to my Native American roots and my heart opens wide to receive a blessing. I really enjoyed the chants we learned, too. The Journey took me to a deep meditative space. I gained great tools for personal growth. Colleen engenders unconditional love and creates a sacred holy space to learn and become who we are meant to be. I would highly recommend her workshops. Bonnie O’Boyle

Anyone who knows Colleen, who has seen her drum, or has heard her chant knows that she is something special. It is a great gift to be able to experience a session with her. (Glastonbury, England and Bucks County, Penn.) The sentiments derived from a session vary from bone chilling to ecstatic. I felt like I was transported to a time of my ancestors, a time of greater wisdom and knowing and that she brought that to the surface for me to explore. Simply incredible – see for yourself. Bess Smith Strzelecki

Crystalline Core Rods

Best thing I have gotten in the mail for a long time. Thank you Colleen Helgerson! I swear the rods (CustomMade) are helping to heal an old wound on my left foot. When I introduced them to myself it was powerful and the whole day my left foot was tingling. When I was 9 — I almost cut my left foot in half and severed all the tendons and nerves. I swear they are trying to reconnect. Veronica Merrill

I got my Rods just now. I opened my mailbox and was puzzled that they were not in there because I could feel them!! Then I looked on my deck railing and there they were. I opened them and they feel so good!! I can’t tell you how happy I am. I am so glad I got the specially made ones. Thanks so much. Sissy Z.

Kundalini Chanting Workshop Testimonial

I was so blessed to participate in a mini workship entitled “The Power of Chanting,” with facilitators Jim Earles and Colleen Helgerson. During this hour and a half session time seemed to stand still, as I was totally “in the moment.” The information was fascinating & the presenters were delightful. I left the session knowing that I felt more centered, energized and fully alive than I had felt in a long time.  What I did not realize at that time – but discovered later – was that I was also cured of two chronic physical ailments that evening. I am a mother with five children and like many women have experienced a problem with urinary bladder leakage. I had tried many natural solutions with not much success and had been avoiding the standard medical solutions – surgery or pharmaceuticals – for years.  Another condition that I have been struggling with was a diminishment of my sense of smell.  I am thrilled to report that Colleen and Jim were instruments of God’s healing graces sent to me that night. My symptoms are simply gone!  I highly recommend others to spend time with Colleen and Jim and experience the abundance!
(Thank you so much Colleen for your light in my life!) Love, Val
