Natural Awakenings Central New Jersey


Clearing the Way to a Better Life

Dec 04, 2023 12:16AM ● By Joe Dunne

So many of us feel trapped in a monotonous routine, disconnected from a fulfilling life. Often, it’s clear that certain patterns keep repeating and seem to block efforts for positive change. Enter Dave Gansfuss, founder of Elevated Soul. As a life coach, intuitive and energy healer, Gansfuss offers powerful one-on-one private sessions that focus on subconscious reprogramming through the “digging” process. This approach allows for swift and often instantaneous results in addressing specific issues.

The primary goal of the session is to pinpoint and eliminate the unique subconscious belief systems that are blocking or preventing desired life situations to increase the flow of positive experiences and situations in their lives.

Clearing the surrounding energy may also be key to opening the path for desired change. This may include rocks, plants, money, electronic devices, and buildings. Essentially anything material that may need an energetic cleansing to be in alignment with one’s desired life. For example, clearing the energetic imprint of a building can positively influence productivity and achievements. Cleansing the energy of a home may open doors for a quick sale, or make settling into a new home much more harmonic.

Elevated Soul’s holistic energy healing services include clearing; energy healing; subconscious reprogramming; consciousness training; spiritual coaching; spiritual awakening modality; and block clearing. Sessions can be tailored to various areas of life, with common focuses being improving financial abundance, enhancing interpersonal relationships, pain relief, and improving health.

Tick Talk

Spring officially sprung on March 21. We have turned our clocks ahead. We are looking forward to warm winds, sunny skies and the smell of fresh cut grass. The daffodils and tulips have recently bloomed and we are just starting with the yard work that comes with the warmer weather.  Sadly, another season has started ramping up.  Tick season.

•             The best form of protection is prevention. Educating oneself about tick activity and how our behaviors overlap with tick habitats is the first step.

•             According to the NJ DOH, in 2022 Hunterdon County led the state with a Lyme disease incidence rate of 426 cases per 100,000 people. The fact is ticks spend approximately 90% of their lives not on a host but aggressively searching for one, molting to their next stage or over-wintering. This is why a tick remediation program should be implemented on school grounds where NJ DOH deems high risk for tick exposure and subsequent attachment to human hosts.

•             Governor Murphy has signed a bill that mandates tick education in NJ public schools. See this for the details.  Tick education must now be incorporated into K-12 school curriculum. See link:

•             May is a great month to remind the public that tick activity is in full swing. In New Jersey, there are many tickborne diseases that affect residents, including Anaplasmosis, Babesiosis, Ehrlichiosis, Lyme disease, Powassan, and Spotted Fever Group Rickettsiosis.

•             For years, the focus has mainly been about protecting ourselves from Lyme disease. But other tick-borne diseases are on the rise in Central Jersey. An increase of incidence of Babesia and Anaplasma are sidelining people too. These two pathogens are scary because they effect our blood cells. Babesia affects the red blood cells and Anaplasma effects the white blood cells.

•             Ticks can be infected with more than one pathogen. When you contract Lyme it is possible to contract more than just that one disease. This is called a co-infection. It is super important to pay attention to your symptoms. See link.
