My Story

I’ve been working in the field of Energy Healing for over 30 years.

The first time I received a professional Energy Healing session was with Ken, a Polarity Energy Therapist. I was shocked and thrilled to feel these strange electrical sensations of energy coursing through my body.

In that session, my heart opened, my crown chakra opened and I entered a euphoric spiritual state. I later came to learn this was a kundalini awakening. I was so expanded I could see auras everywhere. This temporary transcendence revealed a potential I never knew possible. It was after that experience I knew I had to learn this modality, so off I went to Polarity Energy Therapy training.

That was the early ‘80s when terms like Energy Healing, Chakra Clearing, Reiki, etc., didn’t exist. I was thrilled by the impact of my training from four years of the Barbara Brennan School of Healing along with two years of Kabbalistic Healing. I continued studying any and every body/mind modality I could get my hands on. I became a licensed massage therapist so I would have a legal right to touch and incorporate hands-on work with energy healing touch.

I was still in emotional pain...


After years of professional training, I had a successful energy healing practice. By day, I was a holistic health nut, having a profound impact on my clients. By night, I was stuck in a painful co-dependent emotionally abusive relationship where I was an expert at being a victim, a complainer, and a blamer. Then one night he beat me up. It took me getting beat up to leave that relationship - but I still wasn't done being a victim.

I graduated to a non-abusive, emotionally unavailable, quiet alcoholic.  I just couldn't find that magical partner that I believed was out there who could make me happy.

I believed everyone else was happy. I was great at putting up a front like I had it all together, but inside I was lonely, unhappy, argumentative, emotionally withholding from women and overly giving with men. I was controlling and arrogant and I justified it all with my quick insights.

I exploited my psychic abilities without even consciously knowing it. Truthfully, I was grasping at anything I thought could make me happy.

One day, I went to a workshop where Energy Healing was used to release emotional and psychological blocks. This work opened me up to the core of my issues in a way that years of psychotherapy had never reached.

My understanding of energy healing and its relationship to my beliefs, my childhood traumas and how they were playing out in my adult life finally made sense. I began to heal, transform and grow into the kind of person I knew had been locked away within me. My happiness was no longer dependent on a relationship. This was an unexpected gift and an enormous relief. I was finally free to have mature, adult, interdependent relationshiops.


The emotional processing and transformational work with my clients profoundly deepened. With decades of professional mind/body and energy healing training behind me now, intense and lasting breakthroughs were now a regular occurrence for my clients.

I wanted to better understand how to help my clients integrate the psychological shifts with their physiological changes so I earned a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from San Diego University of Integrative Studies .

This MFT masters degree in combination with my Masters of Arts Degree in Theatre from the University of Miami, helped me merge the creative and healing arts and provided the foundation for the development of Lionheart Institute of Transpersonal Energy Healing in 2002 in Los Angeles. During the next 16 years, till 2018, I trained hundreds of therapists, teachers, and students to become professionally certified in Transpersonal Energy Healing.


After closing Lionheart to move to Austin, Texas, I partnered with Kimberly Ward, a Trauma Therapist, to create a virtual training in Transpersonal Energy Healing Therapy ( We train professional therapists, coaches and healers to incorporate TEHTherapy into their professional practice.  

The next enormous challenge...

I went through a life-threatening illness. In 1999, I was diagnosed with congestive heart failure, no known cause. It certainly was not due to my healthy lifestyle I had diligently maintained for twenty years. I became a grateful heart transplant recipient in 2001. As a result, I have a passion and deep respect for both western and complementary medicine.

I wrote four books about the interconnection of body/mind/energy healing:

  • The Exceptional Actor: The Seven Step System to Charisma, Chemistry, and Magnetism

  • Taming the Restless Mind: The Best Meditation Secret on the Planet

  • An Introduction to Transpersonal Energy Healing for Personal Development and Exceptional Professionalism - an ebook and video course

  • Laura’s New Heart: A Healer’s Spiritual Journey through a Heart Transplant.

My joy is helping clients dive deep into the core of their being where true healing happens.

About The Work


What review courses do you offer?

Rachell Allen offers the most comprehensive and complete review courses for the ff: NCLEX-RN and NCLEX-PN for USA, Canada, and Australia (NCLEX is also accepted and acknowledged by most hospitals in the Middle East) UK-CBT for the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) HAAD-RN, DHA-RN, MOH-RN, Prometric-RN for the Middle East Countries IELTS for USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.

Why do I need to pass the NCLEX and the UK-CBT now?

A study conducted by NCSBN to over 300,000 NCLEX takers showed that NCLEX passing rate dramatically drops if the gap between the graduation date and the actual NCLEX exam widens. In short, the longer we wait, the more we forget the nursing concepts, the more we miss opportunities to work overseas.

Are there nursing career opportunities in the USA, UK, Canada and the Middle East?

YES! The opportunities for nurses in these countries are endless! The United States alone needs 1.1 Million nurses in 2022 as projected by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. In the United Kingdom, a total of 133,660 vacant posts for nurses and midwives were advertised in 2017 which is expected to increase in the years to come. The Middle East has growing needs for medical personnel with a projected need of almost 22,000 nurses over the next decade. You cannot work as an RN in any of these countries without first passing the NCLEX, UK-CBT or the Middle East RN Licensure Examination.

How can Rachell Allen help me pass my NCLEX, UK-CBT, HAAD-RN, DHA-RN, PROMETRIC-RN?

Most students fail the these exams because of these main reasons: 1. Lack of Core Content Mastery 2. Poor Test-Taking Techniques 3. Lack of Critical Thinking Skills 4. Lack of Focus and Motivation 5.
