She is an educated training instructor and psychotherapist/psychologist, and for almost three decades she has done counseling for thousands of people – as a coach and speaker/teacher.
By working with humans for so many years the experience has given her a great understanding of human problems and how people relate to different issues in life.
And how did all of this come about in her life? A little bit about Elena’s background:
From early on in my life there had been so much pain and suffering, and all this pain was tearing me completely apart. I didn’t want to live anymore, and as many other people do, I turned to God – my last hope to get an answer for anything.
As mentioned I had the toughest moment of my life. I was 22 years old, and my life was coming apart in many ways. I sat down in my last cry for help, and I had my first encounter with Jesus. He encouraged me with words and His presence.
I didn’t understand this encounter until years later. What He meant? What the whole incidence meant? Even this took years for me to comprehend.
Since that day He has always been there with me, showing me things, guiding me in my life.
In my upbringing my parents lived as atheists, and we never talked about God. The closest we came to talk about it was when my mum told stories from 2. World War. Then she could say; “there must have been someone guarding me”.
After the incident with Jesus I wanted to live in that peace. So over the next decades I tried everything in order to not just find that peace, but to live in it.
I went from one thing to another – anything in order to feel better, to become better, to live in that peace all the time, that I sensed that day.
I used all the techniques I could think of, and it became more and more painful for me. I attended various courses and educations hoping that something would go deeper and remove the pain inside of me.
After this I felt so discouraged that I got really angry with God. I couldn’t understand that He would leave me in such a miserable state. I’ve been in every corner of the new age and physiological environment, but I didn’t find that peace.
And somehow, in one way or another I kept on praying, and God started directing me in what to do.
All the pain and misery I have carried all my life, that I tried to fix through all these things – God removed and restored me >>.
And that turned my eyes toward other people I started to train, teach and equip them in a whole new and more wholesome way in life: The combination of body, soul and Spirit.
