Dawn Dagres

When a person overcomes a loss at any level of reality, it can create a cycle. Many of you keep going round and round, coming back to the same spot like a scratched vinyl record.

I have created a process that I call “The Keys of Destiny” which will help you to release old cellular memories that are holding you back from experiencing yourself at the highest vibrational levels possible.

I have been practicing for over 25 years and achieved approximately 50 certifications in healing modalities for my personal  growth as a survivor.  Being born with extra sensory perception, I chose to use this as inspiration as the heart heals all wounds no matter what you have went through in your life.  As a natural healer and animal communicator I grew to learn that I was different and I began to use those tools that helped me from Reiki, Buddhism, Hypnotherapy and being a caretaker of ancient crystal skulls.

Dawn Dagres is the author of “Keys of Destiny, A Journey Back To The Heart” which outlines in detail the process referred to in this article. Go to www.creationsofanewdawn.com for more information or call 780-444-0053.
