Testimonials

Gosh, I certainly didn’t realise what I was signing up for and still somewhat reeling from it.  You were an absolute joy to work with and the trust that we built enabled me to begin opening many doors within.  I am so grateful for your teaching and although at times gruelling in its intensity, your strength and tenacity kept me focused.

I arrived at your door (so to speak) broken. I had been stuck, frozen for many years with no real idea of what was needed or how to begin repairing the damage that was prohibiting me from living.  I had no voice and even if I did, no idea what to communicate.  I was suspended in animation and felt dead within.  So confused, disorientated and overwhelmed. Cut off from life and people around me, unable to make sense of my environment and any part I could play within it.

Following a deep desire to wean myself from all prescribed psychiatric medicine over the last three years was indeed a good move on my part but I just didn’t know how to make sense of the person I was left with.  I felt so weak, wrung out and able to sustain very little indeed.  My life had resorted to very simple living and avoiding as much as I possibly could. Anything outside of my home & husband had become hostile territory for me to navigate. I was exhausted and struggling to benefit from sleep at all.

On occasion, I literally crawled to our sessions and could quite easily have thrown in the towel, at least a couple of times. Definitely not a course to be recommended for any one of faint heart and could aptly be described as ‘spiritual boot camp’.  Your strength, commitment and ability to hold me at those times, given our proximity and working with Zoom, facilitated albeit at first, a tiny seed, of belief in me, that I could do it.

You introduced me to subjects I’d never heard of.  You got me to see that myself, my body and my essence could be redirected in more wholesome ways, you spoke with words that didn’t just make sense but allowed me to join up many dots within. Almost a remembering and an awakening of the part of me that had always been there but had been suppressed from years of neglectful conditioning.

The exercises and homework slowly began to take shape and even from the early sessions I became focused and attentive to how I could identify and harness my energies to work productively for me.  You introduced me to an offering of routines and rituals that began to enhance my daily patterns and before long I was establishing a foundational sense of who I really was.  One of the biggest revelations was identifying my own energies as opposed to those of another.  So much began to make sense.  I could see where the emotional overwhelm was originating, you taught me boundaries, self-respect and my voice became lounder.  You showed my where my energy leaks were emanating and how to rectify, utilize and direct them more positively.  I became aware that I was taking more care of myself, determining my own needs and that I did actually matter. 

Slowly I felt I was becoming alive.

I now find myself more fully able to actually land and reside in my own body. You have shown me it is safe for me to do so.  I realised that for most of my life I have lived in my head because being in my body and of this world was truly, too difficult.

Already my perception of life and my part in it has taken on a whole new reality.  I have focus, I have strength and determination, all of which have become sustainable.   I am finding ways to relax and keep grounded and make ‘me’ a safe place to be by having a more disciplined approach to my thinking.  I am directing my thoughts now rather than being a victim of them.  Your sharing of the impossibility of my living my dharmic life whilst existing in this arena of survival, allows me to begin addressing some very deep seated fears. You have also shown me that I have the courage to do so.

Making sense of all of this, permits me now to enter this etheric world that I have always known but couldn’t quite access or integrate.  Your ability to introduce me to the parts of myself that have always been present but had no identity was beyond invaluable. You have made me appreciate that my beliefs in the unseen, the unacknowledged and the unknown can actually become tangible and it is possible to harness and use their powers in order to live a good wholesome life.

I came to you broken and we have manged to assemble, with Kintsugi like magic, all of my scattered parts.

Thank you so very, very much.

When I came to Cindy, I was struggling with questions about my relationship and feeling stuck in a liminal in-between space.  Cindy helped establish structure in our sessions while at the same time intuitively seeking out deeper questions and helping me align myself with what I needed to be asking.  She has been instrumental in helping me move out of a place of stuckness to a place where I now trust my own inner voice, so much so that I left my employer and am now establishing my own private practice.  I feel freer and more deeply connected to my spiritual gifts.  Cindy has helped me establish daily rituals and connect myself to my own magick.  She is at once chaman, confidant, mentor, and spiritual guide.  I am so grateful for this program and it was absolutely worth the investment.

Cassie Register (2022- SA: 90 Day Graduate)

I was dealing with a lot of pain from past relationships and trauma still embedded deep within me. I felt stuck, lost and alone. I was struggling with being able to love myself and finding joy in life again. I was going through a full on crisis inside and no one knew. I had tried therapy but it was flat and wasn’t able to penetrate to the center. I was at a crossroads and knew that I had to do something different, bigger. It was nothing short of divine timing that I found Cindy when and how I did and scheduled the breakthrough call with her the next day, then had my first session the day after that. From the first phone call I knew this was the right decision and felt immediately comfortable talking to Cindy, tears and all. 

Cindy made me feel immediately comfortable and at ease in her space and I could feel she truly understood everything I was going through. It was above and beyond what I even expected. She helped me to connect to my past, present and future self and gave me a new understanding of all that I had gone through and how strong I really am. She helped me with cutting cords and even with removing some negative entity attachment. It was like nothing I have ever experienced. I could feel by the end of the first session that things were already moving and shifting and that was huge for me. She helped me tap into my intuition and learn to recognize and trust my own abilities.

I have had huge personal improvements and realizations since the 90 day program, my self love practices and spiritual growth has taken on a whole new form and I am forever grateful to Cindy for being there to help me through this time in my life. I am continuing with Cindy’s other programs going forward as well. I have learned how to enjoy life in a new way and that means so much to me! It was completely worth the investment as this information can be taken with you through the rest of your life and that is priceless! It has and continues to be a truly magical experience. 💗💫

I’ve been a student at Sacred Garden for many years, and when I was walking out of the studio one day, I noticed the message board said, “90 day Sacred Alchemy Program.” I was in a dark place during that time. I felt like my light was completely out. I was walking through the motions of life but I had lost my purpose. I was numb. I felt instantly connected to the words on the board, and felt like it was a message from the universe. I had recently decided to get off of antidepressants and see what life was like without them. I had been taking them for most of my adult life so It was scary, but I knew I needed to do it. I wanted to feel again. I realized that if I wanted to do this, I needed some help, and after speaking with Cindy about the program, I knew this was what I was looking for.

I’ve spent most of my life trying to avoid feeling the negative emotions, hoping to bypass them and only feel the good ones. I tried to push them away because they didn’t feel good. I realized that the antidepressant medication I was taking prevented me from feeling the negative feelings, which seems nice but I learned that if you don’t feel the negative ones, you do more harm than good because you can’t heal and you can’t learn from them. I realized the medication also prevented me from fully feeling joy and happiness. Cindy taught me to sit with my feelings that are uncomfortable without judgement. I learned to acknowledge them, fully experience them, accept them, and then listen to their purpose. She helped me to heal pain from my childhood and pain that was passed down to me. Cindy helped me to find my inner goddess and to trust and listen to myself.

I am emotionally stronger than I have ever been, and I am no longer taking antidepressants. I feel a sense of peace and acceptance with myself that I have never experienced before. My 4th and 5th chakras no longer feel blocked and disconnected. I am able to express myself and am becoming more vulnerable like I never thought was possible. I have learned a new beautiful way to live by practicing gratitude daily, making offerings to the nature spirits and goddesses, and being able to receive messages from the universe. This program changed my life and I am forever grateful for Cindy being my goddess guide and healer on this journey.

I realize now why this has taken me so long to do. I really struggle finding the “right” words for how you have touched my life or even where to begin! And honestly, I still do not have all the words. But what I do have is complete and utter gratitude! Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart! xoxo

I had been living on the same street as Sacred Garden Yoga for 5 years. I’d pass it everyday and think to myself, “I should stop in there some time.” Per usual, I procrastinated and never made it in. It wasn’t until this past fall that I realized that I was sitting on the same spot, on the same couch, upset about the same things. I felt like I was running in a hamster wheel and going no where. I, myself, am a clinical therapist and felt at a loss for what to do. I was attracted to the Sacred Alchemy Program because it it was bigger than therapy or a meal plan or a personal trainer. This program shifted my perspective on life. I have learned that I don’t need to sit on the couch and wait for life to happen to me. Life happens FROM me. Cindy is so patient and kind. I was able to share things with her that I haven’t been able to put into words before. She gently guided me through a personal inventory and invited me to forgive myself. I literally have a lightness in my heart now. I can never thank Cindy, the Sacred Alchemy program, and the Sacred Garden community. I am the happiest I’ve ever been.

Where do I begin? I just completed Cindy’s 90 Day Sacred Alchemy deep dive, and all I can say is “Wow!” I have been on a path of spiritual and personal growth for some time, but some stubborn road blocks finally caused me to step out of my comfort zone and seek help elsewhere. Now I know for sure that this calling was meant to be, and Cindy’s methods of breaking through “stuckness” are exactly what I needed. My biggest hurdles were some very old wounds, a sealed and locked down heart chakra, and also a general fear of stepping into my own power. The healing and breakthroughs I experienced in such a short period of time are incredible, and I feel like I can continue my work from a much more open and centered place. There is much work to be done still, but I feel like I have more of a sense of purpose and direction in my life. Thank you so much, Cindy!

I just finished Cindy Olah’s 90 Day Sacred Alchemy Program. I went into the program thinking it may help me with some areas where I just felt stuck! I had no idea of the transformation and healing that would occur! Cindy helped me remove several blocks that were preventing me from moving forward in my business. She helped me take steps towards manifesting exactly what I needed. I now have the business of my dreams with the right people by my side! I think the most surprising transformation that occurred in the 90 days with Cindy was the clearing and healing of wounds around relationships in my personal life. I always left Cindy’s sessions feeling lighter and just more clear. Cindy’s healing energy work goes deep to the root of your stuckness! I loved the program so much I am signing up for her year long program! Love you Cindy ❤️. Looking forward to more transformation and manifestation!

Joy Nissley, Founder of Natural Learning Alternative (2018, SA: 90 Day Graduate)

When I first decided to experience Reiki therapy, I knew nothing about it…maybe it had something to do with energy? I really had no idea that I would discover secrets buried deep inside of me, nor did I know that it would change my life in such a huge way. I look forward to every session. Your intuition, your incredible training and your heart makes the experience so beautiful. I got an “internal message” one day to seek Reiki therapy after I experienced an immune system breakdown a few years ago, and every session with you has been monumental. Thank you for everything. I will continue coming with anticipation, because there is always something to learn and discover about myself. Please pass my contact on to anyone who is interested in the details of my story and my emotional healing.
