May 2017 - The Truth of You

One of the highest compliments I ever received came from a client's email:

"What a gift to be seen. What a gift to be seen for exactly who I am. What a gift to be understood. What a gift to be able to be supported and healed exactly as needed."

And for me, what an honor to have the opportunity to reflect back an image of true, light-filled essence to a child, teenager or adult stuck in the darkness of fear, self-doubt or worry.

I can hardly believe it but this month marks A Higher Perspective's 25 year anniversary. On May 11, 1992, with the ink barely dry on my certifications from The Palo Alto School of Hypnotherapy, I began to see a young college student for weight management. Heavy most of her life, her self-loathing was so strong that she could hardly stand to look at herself in a mirror. Week by week we chipped away at all the layers of hurt that had contributed to the layers of flesh. Little by little she stopped medicating herself with food and began to embrace healthful and balanced eating. The more she learned to love herself, the easier it became for her to treat her body with loving care. By the time our work together was complete, she was able to see the beauty in herself that was obvious to me from the moment we met.

To all those who have entrusted your "reveal" to me over the years, thank you from the depths of my grateful heart. I never take for granted what it takes for someone to reach out for help, to be vulnerable, to take on the courageous work of healing. The techniques I specialize in are gentle but I understand how tender the places we explore can be and I take great care to apply my "chisel" as lightly as possible. In return, I get the indescribable fulfillment and joy of seeing the light come back in your eyes, an experience that never gets old.

My work is not for everyone but if you're curious about how I can be of service to you, your child or teenager, I'll be happy to answer your questions in a phone consultation free of charge.

Remember that Someone to Watch Over Me is a great resource for children (and adults) to learn about the truth of their spiritual core and how to cultivate it through real life situations. Ordering details are in this month's Announcements.

Until next month, keep your inner light shining brightly and remember that all is moving toward the good.

With countless blessings from a grateful heart,
Lucy Grace Yaldezian, CHT, CHC

School Tune-Ups for Children & Teens

I love working with children and teens and they love the safe, simple, practical self-help techniques they learn from our sessions.

Does your child grapple with any of these?

--Chronic worry
--Sleep problems
--Test anxiety
--Sports and other performance-related issues
--Poor or low self-esteem
--Poor focus and concentration abilities
--Habit control
--Anger management

Most children feel the good shifts happening from the very first appointement. Hypnotherapy, TAT and EFT can make all the difference between stressed out and successful.

A reminder for adults: my areas of specialty are easing general and specific fears and supporting fertility.

If you're curious about how my work can be of service to you and your child, call me or email me.

I'm very excited to be generating deeper engagement on the AHP Facebook page and via Twitter, and would love for you to be part of these conversations. Your comments, likes and shares are welcome.

Having Challenges with Fertility?

I would like to start a healing and support group for women actively engaged in medically supervised fertility treatments or simply experiencing the unique frustration and heartache of infertility.

If you would be interested in such a group, please call (925-820-1949) or email me at

Parenting an adult child can be a unique frustration. I would like to start a healing and support group for people who are having challenges parenting adult children.

Trauma Relief

In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing, Boston TAT professional Patricia Thatcher put out a call to the TAT Professionals community worldwide for volunteers to join a Trauma Response Team . Along with many of my colleagues, I answered Pat's call.

Please keep me in mind as a resource in case of future need. I am available for three free TAT sessions via phone or Skype (preferred) in the aftermath of a disaster such as the Boston bombing or Oklahoma tornado.

A Portal of Grace

The Tapas Acupressure Technique (TAT) has been "a portal of grace." It's the newest technique in my celebrated mind-body-spirit toolbox and there's nothing else like it in the cutting-edge world of meridian therapies. If you enjoy the tranquility of meditation, then TAT may just be the mind-body-spirit avenue of healing for you. Even the creator of TAT, licensed acupuncturist Tapas Fleming , doesn't know exactly how TAT works - it just does.

Tap It Away!

I have been using The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) with adults, teens and children since 1997. A recent study confirms that there's nothing better than EFT for the stress carried by returning veterans. If you are interested in a copy of the study, please email me. My website has a lot more information about EFT, including client comments. EFT can be done in person, via Skype or by phone with outstanding results.

Success at Your Fingertips

Believe it or not, writing in cursive is an important mind-body-spirit connection. Although handwriting originates in the part of the brain that's most capable of change, I've always thought of The Vimala System of Handwriting as success at your fingertips. Using The Vimala Alphabet in a daily handwriting practice offers incredible benefits to your mind, your body and your spirit. Check out Vimala Rodgers' wonderful alphabet for the 21st Century on my website; then call me to arrange a series of handwriting coaching sessions in person, via Skype or by phone.

A Higher Perspective Anywhere!

Skype sessions are now available for handwriting coaching, The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and the Tapas Acupressure Technique (TAT). I'm excited about bringing these extraordinary mind-body-spirit tools to a new, world-wide audience. Since I will be conducting all the Skype sessions in my San Ramon office, those clients will benefit from the high vibration so many of you have enjoyed there over the years.
