High Vibration Living: Leaders Bridging Inner & Outer Peace

“As a heart-led leader, your goal and purpose is to bring your highest and best self into your relationships so you can expand your positive impact and influence people for the good. When you raise others up it ripples out to the world. What does it take as a compassionate, inspirational leader to create your personal environment where YOU THRIVE first? We have the space where you get filled from within so you have more to give others. Create your life on purpose and make the impact you desire.” – Leah Skurdal

Learn tools and practices to:

– Respond from your adult self if an emotional wound gets triggered.
– Stay in your calm center when there’s a disagreement.
– Engage in emotional mastery when your emotions are strong.
– Trust your inner guidance to make sound decisions so you feel more confident.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my page. Are you feeling challenged dealing with all the uncertainties of life lately? Welcome to the club. Our current times require more innovation, creativity and improvisation than we’re accustomed to rallying.

Hi! I’m Leah Skurdal, and I’ve been practicing the Art of Jazz Living for 25 years learning to handle days like these with grace, ease and joy.

My new course, Finding Resilience Through Jazz Living (even if you don’t like jazz) is based on my chapter, from The #1 Amazon Bestseller, The Wellness Universe Guide to Complete Self Care: 25 Tools for Goddesses. You can listen to my chapter reading HERE.

In the online course, you will learn and practice five principles of jazz music in a supportive group setting so you can apply new skills to your daily life.  Check out and register for part 1 of the course HERE.

You’re invited to a free introduction to Finding Resilience Through Jazz Living. Click HERE.

Here’s what Jazz Living course participants are saying:

“Jazz Living has taught me the gift of Pause- just stop- go within -assess how I am operating and if need be readjust on the spot. I monitor my wellbeing more often and celebrate those times when I use my new found skills. Self care and being aware feels good. Jazz Living is a refreshing way to find my groove and live in it more often.” ~ Geralyn Sorensen

“I look forward to a weekly mini retreat. You take me on a nice journey into myself. I feel comfortable and a sense of trust in our growing community. I enjoy the creative and reflective process of practicing The Art of Jazz Living.”  ~ Annetta Leigh

“In the last six weeks, I have learned to go with the flow a bit more. One day, so many things went wrong, I felt myself getting wound up. I got it all resolved and another incident came up. But I managed to get myself unwound again. I remembered, ‘I can take those deep breaths and say it’ll be OK.’ I got out of my spiraling faster than I usually do.” – Carol Villavicencio

How well are you navigating the waves of change?

Maybe you’ve got the skills to manage stress, but the knot in your shoulder and the tone in your voice are telling you to refocus on the daily discipline of actually doing the meditation, prayer, movement, and me-time that keeps you in the flow.

Time to re-calibrate to your natural state of well-being within!

Up-level your response to stress during these transformative times.

Experience an energetic deep dive into your Soul’s longing to express Divine Love uniquely through you. What is surfacing for realignment? How can you hold and expand a higher vibration of wellbeing? What vibrational patterns from your family are ready to uplift and transform?

Are you ready to:

  • Stop replaying the old story and rewrite a new story for your life?
  • Build resilience so you can respond to stress with grace, joy and ease?
  • Enhance well-being so you bring your best and highest self into the day?

During a virtual 90-minute Soul Expedition Energy Healing Session, I offer transformational energy and insights aligned with your Soul and Divine Love. Together we allow Divine Love to uplift your energy and trace vibrational disharmony to the roots – in this lifetime or with the ancestors.

We work with the wise ancestors, angels, your Soul and Divine Love to bless and uplift the imbalance in the ancestral lineage to a more harmonious vibration. We allow the harmonious vibration to flow through the ancestor’s line into the time of now.

Clients report feeling more balanced, whole, peaceful, and energized – more like themselves. After the Zoom session, I send a recording and transcript of the session for you to review.

Client Testimonials

“As a gifted spiritual healer I had the pleasure of experiencing Leah’s gifts. She shared her visions and transmissions from the ethers about me and The Wellness Universe in a private session that were in alignment with what I had been told before, but even deeper and more profound! It was invigorating, humbling, and a blessed confirmation. Her channel is open and clear and her guidance is from love-centered Christ Consciousness. Created with pure love energy Leah delivers heaven sent messages.

If you are looking for a collaborator, workshop facilitator, writer, speaker, healer, for yourself or to present on healing topics, please connect with Leah. I highly recommend her and you will feel re-awakened, secure, cared-for, and loved through it all.” ~ Anna Pereira, CEO & Head Goddess at The Wellness Universe

“Leah is a powerful, amazing soul. 🎁 Her connection to Christ Consciousness and the Spirit world is incredible. She’s the real deal. The personal insight she shared has had a profound impact on my life. ❤️

I have greater awareness of my parents ancestral line. With this awareness comes a greater insight into my heritage and myself. Certain thought processes I inherited were cleared and healed not only within me also within my parents’ Spirits. 🦋 I felt peaceful for the releases and the healing energy.

If you’re looking for greater support and insight on your healing from within journey, I highly recommend Leah. ⭐️ ~ Sharon Randall, WU World Changer, Healing Mentor and Controller, Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region
