Sam Liebowitz, will discuss all types of topics to help you raise your awareness
[EPISODE] Movements of Light Bodywork
This week, on The Conscious Consultant Hour, Sam welcomes Registered Yoga Teacher, Energy Bodywork and Wellness Practitioner, and Astrologer, Lubaina Choudhury.
Lubaina’s journey into spirituality and healing first began after she discovered her first book about astrology at the age of eight.
Many years later, Lubaina found herself living in NYC and battling feelings of anger, anxiety, depression, which had led her to adopt an unhealthy lifestyle which spurred on her spiritual journey. Her search led her to Peruvian plant medicine and energy healing work.
As a result of these alternative therapies, she saw her body, mind and soul transform dramatically.
Tapping into her rich and varied experience in alternative healing, Lubaina uses Healing Bodywork, Movement, Sound Meditation, and Astrology to help you inspire transformation by bringing people into alignment with their own true being.
The show opens with a quote from the Universe, speaking on our interconnectedness whether it be physical or energetic, Sam then adding his own thoughts about the omnipresence of this intangible energy in throughout our lives, and a quote from Abraham, which further adds to the subject of the non-physical side of life which Sam uses to speak on the transition of life into death, bringing both quotes together to showcase the grandness of the Universe beyond we can perceive with our senses. Sam then introduces guest Lubaina Choudhury, briefly running through her bio before the two begin relating back to a previous encounter they’ve had before the show.
Lubaina begins this segment by sharing a childhood story of how she became interested in astrology. She explains how her cousin read an astrology book to her and it peaked her interest. Even as a little girl, she says she could relate to it. She says, “‘Astrology books were like my gateway drug.” Lubaina then starts talking about how growing up she knew she thought a bit differently than those around her. She explains how she went through a divorce and it was like a “Thunderbolt of accelerated karma.” She delves into the time when she moved to New York, and was very depressed. She started to question a lot of things, and that questioning took her on a healing journey. She then shares a short funny story about how she felt the Universe answered her questions via a co-worker. The segment ends with Lubaina talking about her first experience using plant medicine. She says, “It moved something in me; the plants moved something in me.” Sam says, “Often times it’s not what happens in the ceremony, but what happens afterwards.”
Lubaina continues with her journey of experimenting with different types of healing modalities and medicines, adding what she thought were the most effective, going into a health crisis and how that introduced her to yoga therapy, something she eventually became certified in. She adds an transformative experience she had at workshop and how she’d ‘accidentally stumbled’ into this profession, speaking to the broad versatility of this modality. Lubaina pinpoints a few principles of this healing, how her practices are really about tracing the physical tensions of the body back to an energetic and spiritual level lying outside of the tangible. This all brings it home to how our lives aren’t strictly tethered to the physical world around us. The segment closes with Sam relating this subject to his first experience with these ideas back in high school.
Sam opens this segment by sharing how he became a healer accidentally, just as Lubaina. Lubaina shares examples of the results she received from her clients after she began to truly focus on healing. She tells of how she healed one of her clients over the phone! Lubaina believes that, “We are all connected”. After working with the client over the phone, the client physically came in to see her. She tells us how emotional pain can come out as physical pain. She says sometimes results are dramatic and sometimes they are subtle. The segment concludes with Lubaina giving the audience her information and how to reach her.
