Our Mission

Our Mission

It’s quite simple… to heal the world.

We are all guardians.  Our thoughts, our decisions, our actions… all affect everything in this world.  We control much on this planet.  Through the expansion of our population and desire to satisfy our various needs, we control food sources, where animals can live and travel, and even where vegetation may grow.  The quality or lack there of regarding our natural resources is our doing.  The ability for other species to thrive is dependent on our care and actions.

As guardians, we have a responsibility to every other living system and organism on the planet.  Thus, we all have roles to play.  We all have a purpose – a smaller mission within the larger mission.  Our success is tied to the ability for other life forms on our planet to thrive.  Indeed, all of our destinies are intertwined.

As we help each individual restore their own natural ability heal, to overcome health challenges, become their best versions of themselves, and to create a path of alignment between their physical and metaphysical states, we know that we are putting them in position to fulfill their own missions.  Every one of us who can be in that place is another person who is also, whether directly or indirectly, assisting 460’s Journal in our own mission of healing the world.

The Name

460’s Journal is named as a tribute to our Guides, Guardians, and Angels who have supported us throughout our life times.  460, specifically, is the name by which I [Mel] call my main Guide.

One of the questions often asked us is whether we base our session strategies and treatment plans on direction from our Guides.  I’d like to take a moment and be very clear with what we mean when we acknowledge that we work in support with our Angels.

It is a requirement for every practitioner who works with us to have received some type of formal training and credentialing within their fields.  Depending on the modality, this may require a degrees from University, certificates from programs, or (in special cases) life experience may be counted.  In addition, each must have a history of experience that illustrates their expertise within their fields.

These requirements do more than ensure that the practitioner is skilled.  It is the process by which they grow into their potential.  Ethics are developed.  The ability to work within a variety of less than ideal environments if necessary while still being effective, engaging with different varying personality types, strengthening communication and delivery, and building of confidence are all elements that are practitioners must develop and continue to develop even after joining our practice.

The culture we promote is one where both practitioners and those we help learn to honor their own sources of power.  We do not support staking claim in cultural practices to use for our profit.  Thus, our practitioners do not hold titles of “masters”, “shamans”, “gurus”, etc.

At 460’s Journal, we understand that “mastery” in any form cannot be purchased, but is a result of a lifetime of dedication and time spent honing a specific skill or practice.  Though our practitioners do have years, if not decades, of experience – every single one recognizes that even as teachers, we are simultaneously students and open to all that is presented to us to absorb so that we may always improve upon how we may be of service.

The role played by our Guides, Guardians, and Angels is not to determine treatment protocol.  That’s determined by training and experience.  Rather, they are present during the sessions to connect our higher consciousness with yours.  They may bring our attention to specific areas that must be addressed or even reveal wisdom during a session that may benefit both the practitioner and the recipient.

Numerous times have we heard statements like,

  • “What a coincidence that we our session lead us to talk on this subject matter.”
  • “It’s interesting that you used this [specific term] to explain ________.  I completely understand when you say it that way.”
  • “I can’t believe this [image] came up for me.  I was dealing with [related situation] just his past week.”

These are signals that all of our Guides, Guardians,and Angels are involved with the work.  Indeed, we acknowledge and have gratitude for this.

Our Practice

We are an integrative medicine practice.  This means that our forms of therapies are designed to work in adjunct with any treatments or therapies that you may be following with your medical doctor or licensed therapist.

Naturally, people (and the animals) with whom we work tend to experience significant improvements.  Nonetheless, we do not make any claims to diagnose or cure any condition.  Rather, we help you improve your state of natural healing, regardless of whether your concern is of a physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual nature.

Our Guides, Guardians, and Angels are always trying to speak to us.  We simply need to be in the presence of mind to listen.
