Thank you for stopping by! My name is Desiree Ruvalcaba, founder of The Eye of Light. I am an energy and bodywork practitioner, and I specialize in Energy Medicine.
I truly enjoy exploring 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.
From my experience, I find that it is important to create a safe and nurturing space for individuals to just BE - to express their thoughts and emotions freely - and help them feel seen, heard, loved, supported and accepted.
I believe that healing is a process, an unfolding journey. It's not all about facing our shadows through the depths of sorrow, turmoil and despair but also with wonder, joy and laughter. As we release layers of fear, doubt, guilt, shame etc., we begin to realize the truth of our existence and start to feel a sense of purpose and meaning in life.
I always say that the best guides for us are those who have had similar experiences and even backgrounds, and can offer wisdom or a deeper understanding of the lessons involved. If you'd like to learn more about my story, please read on below. I look forward to potentially guiding you through your healing and transformation.
At The Eye of Light, my mission is to help individuals heal from trauma, discover who they are beyond limiting beliefs, and remember their powerful, infinite nature as a spiritual being living a temporary, human experience.
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 energy of physical locations and 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".
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, instead of receiving that love and acceptance, we tend to lose our sense of self and deny our own needs at the expense of others. As a result, I created a shell of protection and feared expressing my truth. Though, instead of protecting me, it created walls and blockages that hindered my ability to be open, vulnerable and love without condition.
Since the age of 10, I cycled through depression and suicidal ideations, and developed high levels of anxiety with the occasional panic attack. 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 decided to take matters into my own hands.
I started experimenting with different diets and exercise programs and although I was feeling a bit better, they were not as effective nor sustainable. That's when I discovered energy medicine and learned that our bodies respond to what we carry, energetically. I realized that I inherited much trauma from my ancestry, carried forward wounds from past lives, and piled on more layers throughout my childhood and young adolescence, causing multiple dis-eases physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
As I explored energy medicine and applied various healing techniques into my own practice, I managed to heal from many of my conditions and have been experiencing such amazing transformations since. Through this process, I discovered my true passion of helping others heal and transform in such beautiful and expansive ways.
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 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.
