Yes. The Holistic Health and Fitness Coaching programs include Personal Training. We offer Fitness Coaching, Nutrition Coaching, Lifestyle Coaching, Spiritual Life Coaching, Mindset Coaching, and Spiritual Energy Healing. I use my entire tool box in the Coaching programs. Your focus may be more on one body or more on mind or spirit, based on your needs and goals, but all of the core parts of the program are there.
Q: How long have you been coaching?
Arriale Starbird opened her practice in 2005.
Q: Do you offer MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING/ KICKBOXING TRAINING?
Yes. Our Enlightened Warrior Bootcamp is a Martial Arts inspired fitness coaching program. It includes elements of Kickboxing and Boxing training, HIIT, weight training, calisthenics, Yoga, stretching, mindset coaching. The purpose of this program is increasing your physical strength, flexibility, resilience, and stamina. In turn that improves overall health, mood, and cognitive performance. This training is not intended for competitive MMA/ combat sports. This program is for beginner to intermediate level. There is no sparring. (You will not be punching anyone and no one will be punching you.) You work on overcoming your own weaknesses and challenges, increasing your personal strength, resilience, and focus, and on healing your own trauma from the past.
Q: I’m not in New York city / new york state. I'm in another state or another country. Can you still help me?
Yes! All of the Holistic Health and Fitness Coaching Programs and Spiritual Healing Services are available by zoom and phone. I have a lot of experience working with people at a distance, by zoom and phone. I have worked with clients all around the world by phone since 2005, and was trained to work remotely by my Coaches and Mentors for over 18 years. Sessions by phone or zoom are a wonderful, safe and effective way to work. And these services are just as effective remotely as in person.
Q: Do you take insurance.
No. But your HSA/ FSA (Health Savings Account/ Flexible Spending Account) may cover the Personal Training program.
Q: Do you Do couples counseling?
Q: Do you offer services in any other laungage other than English?
No. English only.
Q: Do I have to be fit and lose weight before I join your coaching program?
No. Come as you are.
Q: DO YOU TRAIN WOMEN?
Q: Do you train men?
Q: Do you train kids?
Q: Do you train PREGNANT WOMEN?
Q: I AM MORBIDLY OBESE. CAN YOU TRAIN ME?
Q: Do I haVe to become vegan/ vegetarian to do your program?
No. We work with a variety of nutritional protocols, based on your goals and needs. In general we recommend a Ketogenic diet adapted for a more athletic, physically active lifestyle. So very clean, natural, organic, NonGMO animal protein is actually encouraged. Grass fed and grass finished beef, from cows that were pasture raised, without antibiotics or hormones. Free range, organically fed chicken and turkey. Fish raised without antibiotics or hormones, or wild caught fish. These could be better options. If it was a happy healthy animal, living in its natural environment with a happy and healthy family and active lifestyle, then it's a much more nutritious and quality protein.
Q: I have autoimmune conditions, i have chronic pain, and i'm tired all the time. can you train me?
Yes. Our programs address all of those types of issues, right from the get go, and you don't have to do difficult fitness training, until your pain and fatigue are resolved. I coach you regarding your health, based on where you are at with your health.
Q: DO YOU OFFER REMOTE/ ONLINE/ VIRTUAL COACHING PROGRAMS?
Yes. All of our programs are offered via zoom and phone. The quality of the work is the same as in person.
Q: DO i have to wear a uniform in training?
No, but you need to be dressed in appropriate, comfortable athletic clothing for fitness coaching private sessions and classes.
Q: DO YOU OFFER REMOTE/ ONLINE/ VIRTUAL Spiritual Energy healing services?
Yes. All of our programs are offered via zoom and phone. The quality of the work is the same as in person.
Q: I was told i have a terminal condition and will die. can you help me?
It depends, on what is going on with you. Conventional medicine doesn't know how Holistic and Spiritual healing works. They don't know the incredible ability of the body to heal naturally, when given the right tools. I've had clients who recovered from unbelievable amounts of issues. They were told they were going to die, or everyone thought they would. But they are still alive, and doing even better than the average person. Don't write yourself off so fast. You have to fight to win.
Q: I have quit or failed every program i tried in the past. can your program really help me?
The first step is to find out what you tried, and why you quit or failed. Some people say they tried everything to lose weight, but then we find out the two things they didn't try is quit eating junk food, and start exercising. In short, they tried things in their minds, but not in reality. You should schedule a consultation with us, so we can discover at a deeper level the real cause of your past failure, your true motivations, why you want to change. Assess your goals and needs in detail. Then we can design a customized program to fit your goals.
Q: Are there risks associated with physical fitness?
We work very hard to prevent injury and promote recovery. In my programs I prioritize sound foundations of health, and building health for longevity. Rather than extreme physical performance at the expense of your general health and wellbeing, which is what you see with competitive sports a lot.
In my programs I focus on the idea that everything we do, the fitness, the nutrition, the mindset coaching, this is all a form of healing. So if something isn't healing, we don't do it.
Q: ARE YOU LIKE A GURU?
I'm not a guru. And I don't play one on TV. I'm a Coach, Mentor, and Advisor to you. All of the programs which we offer are transformational, and they combine the best of ancient wisdom and modern evidence based holistic nutrition and sports medicine. I use my knowledge and experience to guide, advise and coach you on your journey and help you to make the best choices for you, and achieve the best possible results with your health and wellness. But I don't make anyone do anything, and I don't dictate to people how to live or what to believe. All that is your choice.
Q: Is a zoom/ phone / remote / at-a-distance session as effective as in-person work?
Yes, these are very effective ways of working, which have been known and actively utilized by ancient shamans and healers. People who are familiar with energy work, know well that distance healing is a very real powerful modality. Many scientific experiments were done about people effecting other people or events at a distance with their thoughts and feelings, and it has been proven many times that this is very much a reality. Look at the work of Gregg Braden, Lynne McTaggart, Bruce Lipton, Joe Dispenza, David Wilcock, Tesla and many other researches into non-ordinary reality, who have published books on this subject. Even Einstein spoke of something he called 'Spooky action at a distance.' Many forms of distance healing exist, and work magnificently, if a well trained practitioner is involved, regardless of where on the planet, the receiver of such healing is. By definition, healing does not happen in ordinary space-time.
Q: Do you use a crystal ball and tarot cards?
No and no. I use a variety of methods to read energy, and to get information from Spirit. One way is direct intuition, where information comes directly from my Higher Power. I was born intuitive and for me, getting information from Spirit is normal and how I'm wired. Direct intuition is the best and cleanest way to get information, as long as you are very spiritually and mentally clear, and is superior to external tools, that can be interfered with and manipulated by external forces. Another key practice is Shamanic journeying on behalf of the client, into non ordinary reality, to get the needed information and healing results.
Q: can i schedule a session for another person?
Only in the cases if you are scheduling a session for your child, a developmentally disabled dependent family member, an elderly parent who is not able to take care of themselves, a family member who is in a coma. All other requests are evaluated on a case by case basis. Generally people need to contact me directly and request services on their own behalf.
Q: HOW IS IT POSSIBLE TO BE A SHAMAN AND A FITNESS TRAINER AT THE SAME TIME? DO BARBELLS and KICK BOXING AND FEATHERS and drums GO TOGETHER?
I'm a Renaissance woman. I have many talents! Yes, of course it's possible to be physically fit and spiritually fit, and mentally fit, all at the same time. That's the point of my training programs! That's what I teach, how to be well rounded in your excellence and health, how to be a WHOLE person, and to heal and excel a the level of Spirit, Soul, Mind AND Body. Not Spirit at the expense of body, or mind at the expense of soul. Or your personal health at the expense of your career. You have to be willing to train all of you, not just parts you're comfortable with or only the parts you like. If you want to be a Master, you learn to master everything. As the saying goes, 'How you do anything, is how you do everything.'
Q: ARE ALL OF THE DIFFERENT SERVICES YOU OFFER COMPATIBLE IN THE SAME PROGRAM? OR IS THERE RISK IN COMBINING ALL OF THESE THINGS TOGETHER?
Absolutely 100% compatible. Not only that but the program works best, when all of the elements of the training are present. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts. The proprietary blend of Nutrition Coaching, Fitness Coaching, and Spiritual Healing Services, which we offer, is what makes our program unique and so extraordinarily effective. The only risk is that you will learn new things and achieve true life transformation 🏆🥇
Q: I’m already in therapy. How is your program different then just doing therapy?
Totally different. Conventional western therapy tends to only focus on the level of the mind, and behavior modification. There is typically no nutrition coaching, fitness coaching, holistic lifestyle coaching, and definitely no Spiritual Life Coaching or Spiritual Healing. A lot of western therapists are atheists and don’t know anything about spirit, soul, or energy. So they can’t help and guide you in that area of your life. I’ve also met therapists who are obese and on several meds for mental illness, diabetes, high blood pressure, and numerous other issues, themselves. So how can they help you to be healthy and fit, if they are not?
We don’t offer talk therapy to address mental illness. Our programs are designed to help high performing individuals achieve exceptional results with their health, fitness and overall wellness. We help people achieve their greatest goals in their physical, mental and emotional health, which then extends into their profession/ career, hobbies, family and relationships, and all other areas of their life.
Most therapists want you to be normal and fit into society. We want you to be exceptional and outstanding, which by definition means that just fitting into average will not be satisfying, and it's not the goal of our Coaching program. No one rises to low expectations.
Your pursuit of excellence and mastery makes you different. If you want to achieve excellence you have to be willing to do what most people aren't willing to do. And then you will be what most people will not become.
Our culture makes people think that talk therapy is the only way to resolve trauma from the past. And that is simply not true.
The Spiritual Energy Healing / Shamanic Energy Healing services help to resolve trauma from the past, by clearing it from your energy field. This Spiritual way of working may or may not involve talking, but it primarily works on the soul level.
Also, many high performance individuals do not get much or any benefit from talk therapy or behavioral therapy. For high performance individuals, action is therapeutic. So doing challenging fitness training, Martial Arts, eating healthy, drinking pure water, making sober decisions, taking radical responsibility for their life and their decisions, facing their fears head on, solving problems decisively, and taking powerful meaningful action in real life is extremely therapeutic. And beats talk therapy every day of the week.
Martial Arts and Fitness training in particular are known to be highly beneficial for cognitive performance, focus, concentration, for everyone, but especially for high achievement oriented individuals.
Scientific studies were done to compare fitness training to all of the drugs on the market, to see which is better for depression. Findings show that fitness training is many times better, than any drug on the market, and better than the placebo.
Q: I have a great doctor. How is your program different then just going to the doctor?
Holistic Health Coaching fills a huge gap for many people. It offers services that the conventional medical model simply does not offer, and will never offer.
Conventional doctors only offer medications and surgery. They don’t advise you on lifestyle modifications that would actually prevent problems in the future. They don't advise you on nutrition, or fitness, and they don’t deal with the Soul or the Spirit.
All of the things that actually comprise your health, they don’t deal with. They have no education on those things, and even if they do know something about it, it's illegal for them to advise you on those things.
The conventional medical model that uses reductionist materialistic scientific world view, simply doesn’t take into consideration that everything inside a person is connected. Spirit, Soul, Mind and Body are one whole thing, and you can’t only cut out parts of the body and ignore everything else. And expect a person to return to health after that. Health doesn’t work like that. Health by definition comes from a person’s wholeness, where all parts work together well. If one part is broken or sick, then the whole is broken or sick. And vice versa.
It’s been said that conventional doctors ‘cut, poison, burn’ but never resolve the underlying root cause of the issue. They don’t teach you how to cultivate health. But we do. They cut organs out, rather than return them to health. But we do. They poison you with toxic meds, that don’t solve the problem, but all have negative side effects. And they burn you with radiation which later causes more cancer. It’s a system that covers up the symptoms, rather than resolves the issues at their root.
In our programs, we always seek to resolve issues at their root. Shamans have always known that all physical issues start at their spiritual root. So we have to address each problem at the spiritual/ energetic root first. We don’t mask symptoms. Our programs actually repair, regenerate, recover, restore, rebalance, re vivify, and return a person as closely as possible to the original design.
Q: What is Original Design?
Original Design is an idea that exists in many spiritual traditions around the world. The idea being that there is a blueprint of your perfect being, your unique identity, within Source, within the Creator’s mind. The blueprint is of you as a perfect, whole, totally healthy person, having no problems, no blemish at all of any kind, because you derive all your energy from Source. There is no interference or blockage in your connection with your Higher Power. As people go through lifetimes of trauma, they lose connection with this original design. Events happen that cause them to believe false things about themselves, others or the world. Those limiting beliefs cause them to experience imperfection, disease, corruption and death. Yet, this Original Design exists always and it can be re activated within a person. The goal of Spiritual Healing that we offer is to bring back that blueprint in your life, and to remind your being that that is its true nature. Not the trauma, not the past events, not the beliefs you have about yourself.
Q: Do you train people over 40?
Q: Do you train SENIORS?
Q: I HAVE A LEARNING DISABILITY. CAN YOU TRAIN ME?
Q: Do you teach group classes?
Q: I WORK FROM HOME, AND MY KIDS ARE AT HOME. WHEN I WORKOUT ONLINE WITH YOU, MY KIDS MAY BE IN THE ROOM WITH ME. IS THAT OK?
Typically yes. I actually encourage families to train together. So if your kids want to work out with you, there are measures to be taken, so no one gets injured.
Q: When I do journeys, regressions or guided visualizations, how can I trust that what I’m seeing is really there and I’m not just seeing what I want to see? How can I tell if what I’m seeing is real or I’m just imagining it?
Whenever I’m asked this question, my heart chuckles. I have to answer this question with a question. How do you define what is real? Imagination is the doorway to non ordinary reality. What you imagine is real, at that level. Everything is real and everything is imagination. Our conventional 3D matrix schooling teaches us that what is physical is real, and what is not physical, is not real or is less real (and therefore less important). When people ask that question, what they really want to know is, “Am I accomplishing anything of substance with this, or am I just wasting my time?” And my answer to you is that, all the things you experience in non ordinary reality are very important to pay attention to. Nothing comes into your attention by accident. It is your soul is speaking to you. Try to understand the message. Your life may depend on it. Your soul and spirit are not ‘physical’, but that’s where the source of your life force energy is. Your body is not the source of your life. When the body dies, the soul moves on. The language of the soul is symbolism, music, artistic expression. The imagination is the canvas on which your soul communicates with you, with rich imagery. In many schools of mysticism, it is understood that the spiritual reality precedes the physical, and makes the physical. In a very real sense, your inner life of imagination and dreams is more real than the physical. By transforming yourself at the deepest levels of your mind and soul, you therefore change yourself on the physical. NLP, hypnosis, hypnotherapy, past life regression, and even some of conventional therapy all function based on this same principle - by transforming the inner, you transform the outer.
Q: I was brought up religiously. I’m not sure if my religion allows me to do this kind of work. I want to try it, but I’m afraid.
I want to assure you that there is nothing to be afraid of. The services are non religious and non denominational. Whatever religion you are, of if you have no religion, we can help you with your health, wellness and fitness goals. The work we do relies a lot on evidence based nutrition and sports science. As well as traditional healing modalities from around the World. The spiritual energy healing modalities, at their root, tap into universal, non religious, non culture specific creative forces of life, light and healing that are available to all equally. As Gandhi said, God has no religion.
Q: What should I do to prepare for a spiritual healing session?
You need to be in a quiet, safe environment where you have total solitude. There can not be family, kids, friends, or anyone around you, disrupting you from doing this very important sacred inner work. No TV or other devices on, making sounds. You need to be able to have total silence and solitude to self reflect and be at peace. For most people their home is the best place to do this work. So make sure your other phones are off, if you have them, while you are on the phone session. For others, who can’t get peace and quiet at home, their quiet space is in their car. They drive to a park or park elsewhere where it's quiet and they will not be disturbed, and do their session there. You may be at the park, sitting under a tree if the weather permits. If home is not a place of peace for you, be creative about where you can do your session. With all energy work, you will need to drink a lot of water, to aid the healing process. So have a bottle of pure filtered water (never tap water), ideally a glass bottle, not plastic, next to you. You may have a journal and pen, to make notes of your experiences. You can sit in a chair, or sit or lay on a bed. Make sure you are in a space that has very good phone reception. It is a very good idea to have a headset or ear piece, so that your hands can be free, and so that you don’t have to put the phone to your ear the entire time. Sometimes people use the speaker, but the sound quality is sometimes very poor, and we cannot hear each other. Be prepared to try both, the headset and the speakerphone, until we find where the sound quality is best. The most important thing in preparing yourself for a session is an integrous intent, a true desire to heal and grow. And the second most important thing is a beginner’s mind. No matter how many healers or doctors you've seen to address your issue or ailment, come with no expectations, and totally open to receive whatever Spirit has for you. If you come with prejudgment and rigid expectations about how you want the session to go, its inevitable that you’ll be disappointed. Because healing is never predictable.
Q: What should I do after a spiritual healing session?
This depends on what kind of work was done. When people get deep healing and cleansing work done, at the end of the session, they are still a bit in an altered state of consciousness. And typically very exhausted. So if you have the time, stay in your safe space a bit longer to integrate all the energy. Drink pure filtered water. I strongly recommend that in the evening, after the session, you take a salt bath, or do a salt scrub, with sea salt, Celtic salt, or Himalayan salt (not table salt). Adding essential oils to the bath or scrub can strengthen the potency of that spirit medicine. These are some suggestions: lavender, sage, lemon, Cedar. Surround yourself with beauty, and with positive people, and be gentle and compassionate with yourself.
Q: Is shamanic healing a religion?
No. It's a traditional indigenous form of healing, that was practiced by our ancestors no matter where your ancestors resided in the world. I use Shamanic Healing tools in combination with modern evidence based nutrition and sports medicine. I reduce both to their essence and make them practical and useful for you today. A Shaman is a woman or man of knowledge. Knowledge of self, knowledge of the 'invisible' realms, and knowledge of healing. With Shamanic Healing there is the knowledge of how to work with energy, chakras, the soul, emotional trauma from the past, the source field, how to work with non ordinary reality for the purpose of healing and learning. There is no worship of a deity or sacrifices made to any deity.
Q: Do I have to become a shaman to TRAIN with you/ GET THE HEALING BENEFITS OF THE WORK?
Q: Do I have to CONVERT TO A RELIGION TO TRAIN WITH YOU/ GET THE BENEFITS FROM THIS HEALING WORK?
No. This work is non religious/ non denominational. There is nothing to convert to. I guide you through your own healing and fitness journey, into a better, stronger, healthier version of yourself. The only conversion that has to happen is you moving out of victim mentality and living from your shadow, to victor mentality and you living from your creative genius.
Q: Does Shamanic Energy Healing work on pets?
Yes. This healing work is effective on animals, pets and farm animals. If you have animals that you think could benefit from these services, don't hesitate to contact us.
Q: Did you study with john livingston?
Yes. I studied with John Livingston for 9 years. You can learn a bit more about that in the About section.
Q: I want some of the services you offer, but not all of them. Can i still join a program?
Yes, for a limited time. You can start with doing the work you are comfortable with. And as you become open to doing more, we'll move one step at a time, in that direction. However, if it's critical for you to do certain types of training (i.e. nutrition, or fitness), in order for you to accomplish your goals, we will discuss that in the assessment process. If you physically cannot do certain parts of the program, that you would need to do in order to get the results you want, we will set a time frame, and work on getting you to the point where you can do those things. I will help you to get there.
Q: WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PHONE AND A REMOTE SESSION?
In doing Shamanic Energy Healing work, sometimes Remote sessions may be an appropriate way to work. Remote sessions are sessions which I do on my own (in a journey/ meditation/ altered state of consciousness,) without the client being on the phone/ zoom. So no Coaching is done during that session. Examples of when remote work may be necessary: 1) When a person is in a coma 2) When I'm doing work on a baby or a child 3) When the person speaks no English and there is no one else who can help them locally. 4) When I'm doing psychopomp work, aiding the person who is passing to go to the other side safely.
Q: i have 0 money but i really need help. can you help me?
Yes. You can get on our referral program. By referring other people to our business you can get credit toward your program. If you refer enough people in a year, your program can be entirely at no cost to you. Please contact us to discuss.
Q: i tried alternative things in the past and it didn't work for me. what do you do that's different?
Some people self diagnose and self treat, just by reading articles online, or watching youtube videos, and then going to the store and buying things that seem like what they need. If this is what you did and it failed, it's no surprise to me.
If you've worked with other people in the past, maybe those were not the right people for you and your goals.
But just as you would not attempt to do your own heart surgery, or brain surgery, or adjust your own spine, or expect a baby to raise themselves, you can't expect yourself to solve complex health challenges on your own, while you're in the midst of these health challenges. It's not possible. You need real professional consistent guidance and Coaching to resolve deeper seated issues with your health. DIY can be good with some things sometimes, but when it comes to your serious, chronic, or acute health challenges, you really need to be working with professionals in a consistent, committed program that will provide you with knowledge, accountability, expertise, and ongoing support. In our Holistic Health and Fitness Coaching practice we have over 40 years of combined experience and education, to support you with. If you are in the midst of a health crisis, you don't have 40 years to figure things out. Reach out to us and we would be happy to get on a call with you to see how our programs can help you accomplish your health, wellness, and fitness goals.
Q: DO YOU OFFER PSYCHIC SELF DEFENSE TRAINING?
Yes. I created a unique proprietary program to train serious students in Psychic Self Defense and Spiritual Protection. Learn more here.
Q: DO YOU OFFER entity clearing/ spiritual clearing/ spiritual cleansing/ depossession/ EXORCISM?
Yes. I have been offering these services in person and remotely, for over 18 years, with a lot of success stories. Some of the success stories are in the Reviews section of this site.
Q: I think I have negative entities attached to me, and I need a clearing. I’ve never done a spiritual clearing or cleansing before. What can I expect?
We accumulate a lot of toxins in our energy field. The human energy field is like an onion with many layers, and we have patterns in the field that formed over the course of many lifetimes, that serve a purpose, such as learning. The energy field layers, the chakras, the energy patters, and the organs themselves accumulate physical, energetic, emotional toxins. Some of them come from the environment and from other people, and some are generated by us, during the course of our lives. If we don’t remove these impurities regularly with natural detoxing and nutritional protocols, and don’t cleanse our energy regularly, with these energy healing modalities, the accumulated toxins will clog up the system, and eventually, certain parts will not work as well, leading to health decline. In the extreme case, organs or chakras can simply stop functioning. Many people don’t detox and cleanse, until they have symptoms of illness. Then they go and get medications, that seek to mask the symptoms, but do not resolve the root cause of the problem - which is toxicity and poisoning. Or people cut out the dysfunctional organ. Which also doesn't solve the problem, because each organ has an energetic counterpart, that remains in the body, and is still present, after the physical organ is removed. It will still be clogged with toxins, but it will be more difficult to cleanse it after the physical counterpart had been removed. It is important for every person to do regular detoxing of all organs and energetic cleansing to prevent illness. Why wait until illness strikes. It's much better to prevent the illness. The cleansing and clearing modalities which I offer go very deep, and may need to be done in stages, if a person has never cleansed before, as not to shock the system, and cause what is called 'a healing crisis'. This happens if a person detoxes too fast. In session, you will be in a relaxed state of mind and body, while I do the clearing/ cleansing. You may feel things leaving, you may be given helpful messages from Spirit, you may simply feel very sleepy. People have varied experiences during the work, but always they get exactly what they need to help them in their personal evolution.
Q: In doing Depossession work (Spiritual Clearing/ Spiritual Cleansing/ Exorcism/ Extraction), how do you not take on negative energy from other people?
I don't take on my clients' problems or energy. A lot of training and experience. I have been doing it for over 18 years. This work is not for everyone. Not everyone can master it, or even approach it. Some people faint at the sight of their own blood. Others do open heart surgeries 6 days per week. Everyone has different talents.
Q: Are you/ your services new age?
No. These services are in no way part of the new age religion.
I utilize modern evidence based Holistic Nutrition and Sports medicine/ science, to inform my programs.
And Shamanism/ Shamanic Healing is not new age either. It's indigenous and Traditional. The healing modalities which I am trained in are ancient and original forms of traditional healing arts, which all of our Ancestors practiced. Some remote indigenous cultures still practice today. If these traditions are still alive today, and have survived the rise and fall of civilizations, and yet they still bring value, benefit, and meaning to the modern person, are still relevant to us today, I'd say they are worth exploring and understanding.
I have not seen anything in modernity that can replace some of these traditional healing modalities, not even close.
They are often lumped in with new age, and that's an error.
Important to note is that the way I offer these healing modalities within the Holistic Health Coaching programs, they have been adapted for the modern person with modern problems.
