At The Eye of Light, my mission is to help individuals heal from trauma and discover their true essence by guiding them to see beyond limiting beliefs and remember their powerful, infinite nature as a spiritual being living a human experience.

So lovely to have you here! My name is Desiree Ruvalcaba, founder of The Eye of Light. I specialize in Spiritual Coaching and Energy Alchemy.

 

I enjoy learning and exploring the many approaches of energy medicine, and am always seeking to further develop my gifts and abilities to better serve humanity and the world.

 

I am particularly drawn to guiding empaths and highly sensitive individuals through healing trauma, remembering their soul’s purpose, and empowering their gifts and abilities.

To me, it is important that I create a safe space for humans to be who they are as they are, to express their thoughts and emotions freely, and to feel seen, heard and nurtured in a world that may not feel so safe.

I believe that healing is a journey, and is not all about facing your shadows through the depths of sorrow, turmoil and despair. Healing can also be experienced through wonder, joy and laughter. We always have a choice: love or fear.

ABOUT DESIREE

As a child, I struggled to understand my empathic nature, and felt powerless and shameful for being that way.

I was faced with many challenges growing up, and although I fell into deep cycles of depression and anxiety, I have always been the type to see the light in any situation and in people which fueled my inner strength and hope. Hence the name of my practice, The Eye of Light.

 

I can feel people's emotions and physical manifestations as if they were my own... I can feel the energy of objects whenever I pick them up... I can feel the collective energy in physical locations and of the world... but I did not understand that growing up nor did my family and friends.

Through many generations, we were taught to fit familial, cultural and societal expectations in order to survive in this world and succeed in life. 

My parents were immigrants, trying to provide a better life for themselves and their children here in America so I lived strictly under these conditions. Culturally, it is more common to receive criticism rather than "good job" or "I'm proud of you" likely due to ancestral trauma.

 

In this type of upbringing, I've noticed that people either become highly individualistic or overly self-sacrificial.

 

I became overly self-sacrificial and developed a habit of people-pleasing in order to feel a sense of love and acceptance. Though, as you may know, instead of receiving that love and acceptance, we tend to lose our sense of self and deny our own needs. I also became highly reserved and feared expressing my truth.

 

Since the age of 10, I struggled through cycles of depression and suicidal ideations, and developed high levels of anxiety with occasional panic attacks. In my 20s, I started to experience a number of physical manifestations such as hypothyroidism, IBS, chronic hives, a whole bunch of digestive issues and many other undiagnosed conditions. 

 

After many years of unsuccessful treatments through Western medicine, I took matters into my own hands.

I started experimenting with different diets and exercises and although I was feeling a bit better, it wasn't as effective. That's when I discovered energy medicine and learned that our bodies respond to what we carry, energetically. Along with any traumas we suppress during our experiences in life, we also carry unresolved trauma inherited from our ancestors and from our past lives. These manifest as numerous blockages throughout our bodies, affecting our mental, emotional physical and spiritual well-being.

As I explored energy medicine and applied various healing techniques into my own practice, I managed to heal many of my conditions and experienced transformational changes in my life. Since then, I developed a passion for helping others do the same.

EXPERIENCE & CERTIFICATION

In 2018, I received my certification in Holistic and Integrative Health where I learned how to balance the mind and body through various healing techniques (i.e. nutrition, light/sound therapy, healing touch, yoga, and meditation). During my studies, I took a keen interest in Ayurveda, an ancient healing system that focuses on promoting balance and flow according to one’s own individual constitution. Shortly after, I received my certification in Marma Chikitsä Therapy, an Ayurvedic treatment that cleanses blocked energy by applying light pressure to the Marma points, energy points that provide access to the chakras and the body’s innate intelligence.

Later that year, I attended the Art of Living Happiness Retreat Program in Boone, North Carolina led by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, an Indian spiritual leader and founder of Art of Living. Here, I learned the art of meditation (specifically the Sudarshan Kriya, a powerful breathing technique that uses precise natural rhythms) and how to tap into our inner wisdom.

In 2019, I ventured on a spiritual quest to Bali where I attended a Melukat, a sacred purification ceremony, led by the high priestess and other powerful healers. I also participated in workshops related to energy medicine such as Chakra Balancing and The Wim Hof Method.

 

After returning to the U.S. later that year, I received my certification on the Emotion Code, an energy practice of releasing emotional blockages by using muscle testing and tapping into the subconscious.

In 2020, I received my certification in the Silva Method, a self-help and meditation program that increases an individual's intuitive abilities through relaxation, development of higher brain functions, and psychic abilities such as clairvoyance. I also learned how to use Tarot, a spiritual tool for giving and receiving guidance.

In 2021, I traveled to Jalisco, Mexico and was trained in Ventosas, fire cupping therapy, and Sobada, a massage therapy, to alleviate muscle tension and reposition the stomach, intestines, matrices and bladder when abnormally situated.

Throughout the years, I have been further developing in my channeling abilities with the assistance of my spirit guides and ancestors, and certain elements, deities, angels and archangels and other multidimensional beings.
