A Calling

Ever since on spiritual journey in 2003, in India, where Constantia followed a voice down to the sacred river Ganges, and, in awe realized that the water was calling her, she’s been passionately allowing for water to guide her into bringing its healing activation abilities to herself and others.

 

Her work is mostly one of presence, allowance and intuition, even with all the trainings, educational programs and certifications she’s taken. “The properties of water would not allow me to claim that it moves in just one specific way, it is much more than one set of tools. It’s a way of being, holding space, creating the perfect environment for what needs to take place… witnessing, holding, making room for what needs to come”.

 

She deeply believes that health is a direct reflection of the stories and beliefs we hold within. “The issues are held in the tissues until the moment we are ready to release and integrate them into one’s fullest potential!”. She loves meeting others where they are at, and gives them the freedom to be perfectly themselves, wherever they are. “It’s all about bridging the gap between mind and heart, and creating a language for them to be in service of each other. Bodywork creates a space for the magic to happen, when we drop our defenses and surrender to the flow of life itself”.

 

Over the past 17 years of doing this, Constantia continues to learn and be inspired by her clients, the families she works with and their babies/children. “The work shapes itself, and never ceases to evolve. I am lucky to have been called to be a partner of waters and the land, in sharing their special ability to bring us back home to ourselves”.

The Dolphin Connection

The Big Island of Hawaii is a place Constantia has always called home. On a special occasion there, she found herself in a warm pond, dreaming of the water beings and feeling connected to them. It is here where she reconnected with the dolphins. “I remember the tv Flipper series and how much I was capture by it… dolphins have always fascinated me.”

 

When she was called back to Hawaii for a Dolphin workshop, she had another chance to connect even deeper with their playfulness, kindness and ability to heal. “Every time I swim with them in the wild I feel transformed as if every cell of my body has been imbued with pure love and light, like I’ve changed frequencies on a DNA level. The fact that dolphins mostly travel in pods seemed so natural to me. It made me realize how important it is to be together, in communities, ohanas (families). Here they gifted me the download of Dolphinsgate Aquatic Sanctuary, a name that they whispered to me, our very own water community since 2005”.

 

Constantia believes dolphins are missionaries and that they uphold the frequencies of Love and Light on this planet. They are “Open Heart Therapists of these times, teaching us about fluidity and flow, about opening our hearts and becoming more childlike! They are like cosmic midwives assisting in the birth of the Aquarian Vision of peace, unity, collaboration, co-creation and harmonic living!”

Acknowledgments

“First and foremost I’d like to acknowledge becoming a mother and  welcoming my daughter Sabrina into the world, my brightest and biggest teacher. Thank you for hanging in there with me through the ups and downs. This was the turning point for me, where the real, deep inner work began.

 

I’d like to thank my soul/whale family, the Maori Healers from New Zealand, Tohunga Ahurewa  HoHepa DeLaMere (lovingly called Papa Joe), Manu Korewha, Atarangi Muru, Ruth Makuini Tai - without their love, teachings, support and body work sessions I wouldn’t be here today. Their ongoing teachings continue to support my evolution.

 

My beloved dolphins; my sweet, love and light code holders, playful teachers who continue to lift and inspire me.

 

Thank you Aquatic Teachers; Shantam Lanz, Richard Bock, Harold Dull, Inika Spence and Cameron West, for teaching me about the importance of flow, being held and freeing the body, mind and soul in water.

 

My shamanic teachers Hank Wesselman and Jill Kuykendall for teaching me about Hawaiian mysticism, that continues to support me on the path of the great mystery.

 

Native American Elder, Rachelle Figueroa of the Morning Star Foundation, who invited me into the Native American culture, where I learned the importance of gathering in circles, ceremony, songs and traditions. Her weaving connected me with the indigenous grandmothers and their teachings, showed me the importance of taking care of our Mother Earth - in gratitude, prayer and respect, and reminds me daily that we are all one heart, one love, one nation.

 

Midwife Ceremonialist Marina Alzugaray, creator of Aquanatal!   Elena Tonetti Vladimirova  for her teachings of the Birth Into Being Method! Conscious Conception Specialist Anna Verwaal. Thank you bringing me into the birthing community."
