Hello! I am Elma Rivera, an Internationally Certified PSYCH‑K® Instructor.
I also practice professionally as a COMENSA Certified Coach from Stellenbosch University Business School, and as a Time to Think coach with an extensive business background. In the past, I have enjoyed my work in journalism and TV production, as well as my experience as a sustainable living product innovator and entrepreneur.
Throughout my life’s journey, I’ve been an advocate for using common sense.
I was drawn to Psych-K® after reading Dr Bruce Lipton’s book The Biology of Belief. I relished the fact that the latest science was without a shadow of a doubt, finally validating, not just the ancient traditions of human consciousness but my own experiences of the metaphysical.
I am immensely grateful for this opportunity to be of service and I am now living my dream of enabling others to help themselves in a profound and sustainable way.
For me, learning about PSYCH-K® and using it, has not just been about my own physical healing and emotional freedom. It was also to practice and experience an evidence-based approach to transform the limiting sub-conscious beliefs that cause us to get stuck.
I live in Cape Town, South Africa, one of the most beautiful places in the world. I love my city and my country, but we have challenges. I’ve worked in disadvantaged communities and it inspired me to find a fast, easy way to firstly help people help themselves, to change their beliefs, and create sustainable futures for themselves and others.
As an inspirational speaker, I create an environment of introspection, laughter and interaction. My talks are based on the latest scientific research on neurology and quantum physics coupled with down-to-earth tips on how to change your beliefs and change your reality.

I have literally always had a ‘knowing or feeling’ since I can remember even as a very small baby/child, but a definitive moment was when I was 5 years old and my dad said we will be moving to another town. I had a flash picture of a house with a road running behind it, a row of Blue Gum trees, a piece of veld and a train station.
When we arrived at our new home, the home itself was a bit more modern and in front of the house was a street, a row of Blue Gum trees, a piece of veld and a railway station.
But even before that, one of my first memories is knowing what it feels like to be shot. It took many years for physical pain memory to fade.
There have been so many writers/teachers that had a profound influence on my life. The Author Alan Paton who wrote “Hold my hand I am dying” really helped me to wake up regarding race and injustice, especially having grown up in South Africa.
From a spiritual perspective, I was seeing a wonderful psychologist Mark Kahn, after I got divorced when I was 25 years old, with a baby of 18 months. I went to see him believing that I was mentally ill, because I had so many strange ‘flash backs’ since I was a small child and I was convinced that I was delusional and crazy. I would for instance be driving my car, and the next moment I will be on a camel with a spear in my back in the middle of a tribal war in the desert.
Really scary…..He did all the tests for schizophrenia etc., and then literally declared that the only conclusion was that I was psychic. I did not even know what that word meant. He then referred me to a wonderful lady called Katherine Lee, who over a period of many years literally helped and trained me to be able to live as normal a life as possible within a society that truly did not embrace someone like me.
I also (whilst running my TV production company), trained to be a Spiritual Healer, Regression Facilitator and so much more! I ended up doing almost every complimentary healing course that was available at the time. We are talking during the 80’s when just saying the word Reflexology could get one stoned, literally.
There are many! But most of them I managed to learn from and create a better understanding of my life now and previous lives. But the one that I have not managed to completely believe or understand (and that is ongoing) was one night, during my late 20’s, I woke up floating in the air, with incredible pain in my abdomen.
There were beings harvesting eggs from my womb, the pain was incredible, and I could literally not do anything about it.
I have received information about what was going on there as it kept on happening for years. I have subsequently invoked my right to privacy and my right to free will, and came to an agreement that certain actions will happen only if it does not interfere with my earthly life.
I love my left-brain hemisphere! It grounds me, gives me solid information and since discovering the latest biology, science and quantum physics, I can now freely teach and assist people in creating the best life for themselves.
Many people want to know what that is for themselves. But what I have learnt through the years, is that by just being alive we are already fulfilling that life purpose. Each and every one of us is unique. Just think about your fingerprints! Unique! Just being who we are, already fulfills our purpose.
That being said, when we begin to understand the power we yield, every moment will become an opportunity to create a beautiful life for ourselves and others. Our life’s purpose is to be eternal enlightened beings. And we can!
I love them all, but as I have two beautiful cocker spaniels I must say they are. Horses, whales, dolphins, falcons, eagles. With those animals I have had special experiences, but I try not to even step on an ant! Although Sai Baba said that when one’s home is invaded, after considerable negotiation, if insects or whatever is there, does not leave, we do have the right to get rid of them.
I hate doing it though….
Once I entered the PSYCH-K® world, either doing a balance or sitting in a whole brain position, immediately connects me with everything including myself. A whole brain position activates both hemispheres in the brain, literally instigating a full faculty capacity. It calms me down, helps me to use both left and right brain qualities, and I immediately feel connected to Source and the world at the same time.
We don’t have to spend hours trying to connect, now it’s almost instant! I also have a spiritual area with Buddhist bells, pillows, incense etc. Here I speak out loud, have conversations with elevated unseen beings, angels, Divine Intelligence etc.
Once again, I love music in general. Mostly inspirational, but give me Hot August Night by Neil Diamond, or good hard rock from time to time and I get extremely happy! I loved the latest A Star is Born movie and soundtrack!
I follow a Banting life style, that’s a lot like a Keto eating plan, and a good solid bacon and eggs is my favourite meal of the day. But then……. I love baking, making and creating deserts. Special ocations calls for throwing caution to the wind, and indulging in a good pavlova or baked creation!
Growth, insight, understanding. Experiencing exactly what we were meant to be, powerful creators of our own destiny. When I see the wonder and excitement in people once they have been to a PSYCH-K® workshop, and they understand their own power, and the powerful way we were created, it makes my heart sing and deep humble gratitude sometimes pulls to me to my knees.
We are all one. We have all been given the infinite power to be the best we can be, which is elevated, enlightened beings. I am not more special than you or anybody else. But my life has brought me so many gifts and learning experiences, that I now feel equipped to help others to discover who they really are.
We all have super powers! One of mine is to look at a situation with laser sharp guided insight, and although it could be difficult for others, to cut through the nonsense and get to the core of the issue or challenge.
Once we can reach the negative beliefs that mostly sits hidden in our subconscious mind, with the PSYCH-K® tools, we can re-wire those pesky beliefs in a couple of minutes. I will assist and help whomever is ready to take the bull by the horns, do the work and get cracking to become the best you can be.
With PSYCH-K® we don’t have to slog anymore. Just be prepared to look inside, be honest with ourselves, take responsibility, use the PSYCH-K® tools that work faster than anything else on the market today, and accelerate our growth towards being who we were meant to be. An enlightened being!
