Simple Support Strategies To Stay Centered In Daily Life

There are so many easy, yet extremely powerful self-healing meditations and techniques that can help you stay centered and grounded between your healing sessions.

Expanded states of consciousness connect you to your highest wisdom on the healing table. After working with your unique energy field, I can suggest the best ways for you to stay connected to this level of creativity and intuitive guidance. This may include meditations, mantras, affirmations, breathing exercises, earthing, and even Reiki attunements to initiate a daily self-care a Reiki practice.

I have found there are no cookie-cutter techniques that work for everyone, yet after being in a healing state with someone, it is often clear what will be the most enjoyable and helpful practice for them.

The meditation that will center you every morning is the one you will actually do. 

Some people (I raise my hand) find a self-reiki treatment is the most beneficial when I can’t sleep at night, and other people find chanting their favorite mantra or affirmation eases them back to sleep. The meditation that is way too woo-woo for one person may be the miracle tool for another client who has debilitating anxiety attacks.

When you commit to taking care of yourself, you will soon see that intention pay off in daily life. My clients who schedule regular healing sessions are often enthusiastically reporting the benefits of their self-care.

“Last year Jeri taught me a meditation called “Column of Light.” I found the imagery to be so compelling that I continue to use it on a daily basis, whether I’m actually sitting to meditate, or just need to remember who I am. Sometimes, I use the Column of Light meditation in order to gather my power and feel effective again.

Jeri is an energy healer, but she is also a wonderful teacher of how to feel your own energy and channel it wisely.”

Matt Kahn: Whatever Arises, LOVE That

“Underneath it all, I came to discover that the source of a closed heart, a noisy mind, low self-esteem, or an out-of-control-ego is an overstimulated nervous system.”

 – Matt Kahn from his book whatever arises LOVE that

This book has helped me see at my energy practice from a whole new perspective.  It will probably become one of those books that ends up close to my meditation chair for a long time.

“No matter how many years you have spent immersed in spiritual discourse, the living realization of truth cannot be fully revealed until the nervous system is relaxed. Even on a mystical level, the degree to which a nervous system relaxes also determines who sees angels, ghosts, alternate dimensions, or even receives intuitive messages.”

 – Matt Kahn from his book whatever arises LOVE that

The whole idea of an overstimulated nervous system makes so much sense. After a Healing Touch/Reiki session, many of my clients immediately describe their visions, guides, visitations with relatives that have past and all hues of colored lights. Several people have even asked me why they only have these experiences when they come to see me.

Energy Work Is SO Practical

Last week a client drove to her session with me immediately after she had extensive dental surgery. The left side of her face was completely numb. I started with a Healing Touch Technique that cleared her head of 90% of the numbness in 10 minutes. The only area that she felt was still desensitized were the exact points the dentist had given her the anesthetic injections.

This particular client has extremely proficient self-healing energy ability, but still, even 20 minutes of a level one Healing Touch techniques would create a  huge difference for anyone recovering from dental surgery.

Again I  realized how practical and powerful energy work is. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all dental technicians attended the beginning Healing Touch class and could do 20 minutes of healing on their patients after dental surgery?

Until this vision manifests, it might be a good idea to schedule a healing session after any medical procedure for a faster, more painless recovery.

Affirmations For Changing Your Life

The affirmation that can create the most change in your life is the one that gives you goosebumps.

Affirmations can be extremely powerful when you find the words that deeply resonate with every cell in your body. Focusing and mentally repeating these words when you are emotionally overwhelmed in your daily life can get you through some pretty stressful times.

These are a few examples of affirmations my clients have  found worked for them :

“I am loveable.”

I am willing to forgive myself for _______.”

“This fear will pass.”

“I am safe.”

“I am willing to believe that life isn’t hard.”

The words “I am willing” can be a game changer when working with affirmations. Often beliefs and fears are so internally ingrained that our body does not believe any statement that contradicts that belief. The simple words “I am willing” in front of an affirmation can be the stepping stone to embodying a whole new way of experiencing life.

Affirmations can help your mind align with your most profound truth.

The Power Of Sacred Space After A Breakup

A healing session can be a gentle way to process complex emotions around some of life’s most difficult situations – such as the end of a long relationship. Being supported in a heart-centered, expanded state of consciousness resolves trauma and creates access to one’s own internal healing energy.

“I think what I received today was a quiet space to process and to actually let myself feel sad for probably the first time (without trying to fight it or being too busy to keep it around) since I broke up with him.  It was really hard and really sad–but I wasn’t afraid.  Somehow, the whole process was really gentle and calm.  I just… let myself be sad and heartbroken without wanting to run away.  It was also the first time in several weeks that I felt energy moving through me again.  It is so amazing to have a safe, loving space where I am not alone–so thank you.”  

– Client after her session

This is one of the many beautiful benefits of Reiki and Healing Touch.  By restoring and balancing our energy system we can access the powerful self-healing abilities we all possess. We are so supported.

Healing And The Deep Cosmic Current

A client asked me:

“Does having one particularly intense or energized session sort of change the energy of the day and make the rest of the sessions more likely to be that way?”

This is an interesting question. When one of my clients has an intense “breakthrough”  healing session, I know there is a very good chance there will be more such sessions in the immediate future.

I revisited a post I wrote in  2012 called Patterns in a Healing Practice. In it, I wrote how clients with the same issues and conditions seem to appear in my healing practice in waves: waves of clients with anxiety and stress, waves of clients with knee concerns, waves of pregnant clients. I noted that being in the healing space on a daily basis gave me a sense of being connected to some kind of deep cosmic current.

This “Deep Cosmic Current” appears to facilitate different healing opportunities at different times, accessing the specific energy needed for those deep transformative healings. Clients that I work with weekly, bi-weekly and monthly will frequently have “breakthrough” sessions at the same time. I sense that there are just certain times when certain healings energies are more available than others.

Could this be because of me? Could my personal energy, mood, biorhythms of the day, be a significant influence?

Over the years there have been days when I had felt “less than perfect” when I arrived at work in the morning, and those days have often been unusually high energy and beneficial for my clients. These are the times I sense my role is not so significant in the healing process. It feels more like the client and I are surfing a universal wave together.

This is another reason regular self-care healing sessions are so valuable. Energy sessions are helpful on any given day, yet there are days when there appears to be more energy available, in which the veil of separation is thinner between spirit and matter, periods in which divine grace is more accessible in the cosmic current.

These are auspicious times to have a healing scheduled.

Healing Touch and Reiki: A Healing Ride

This week I would like to share a client’s experience of her healing that she so generously shared with me. I would also like to remind you that you do not have to feel dramatic sensations in the giving or receiving of Reiki or Healing Touch. Often the most subtle healings are the most powerful.

“As she began working on me, my mind did what it always does: spiral out of control! A few minutes into the session, my whole left side began to twitch and spasm, measuring about 6.8 on the Richter scale. While my body seemed to play out a version of War between the Worlds, I tried to focus on the music in the background. In spite of the “war” at hand, I noticed a strange calm and sense of detachment wash over me. My tremors calmed a bit, and after a long while I sensed we were at the end of the session. Jeri took her hands off me, but I could feel her presence at my side. But I was reluctant to “come to”. As I lay there, waiting for my cue from Jeri to get up, I suddenly felt hands on my feet. And this whirling energy started in various places on my body. I peeked my eyes open to see what Jeri was doing and was surprised to see her seated beside the table, nowhere near my body. I really have no context to describe the sensations I felt in my body, as it was all new to me. I wondered if I had been engulfed in another dimension. I felt almost as if I was floating in some vortex of energy. I was on some kind of ride, and just so curious about what was happening. My mind kept saying “you should get up; you’re taking so much time”. But this energy swirling around me seemed to have a life of its own and I was in its grip, for what felt like AGES. It finally settled down and I knew it was time to get off the ride.

….I don’t know exactly what I experienced—only that I floated home. And I felt a noticeable lightness in me for days following my session. And I felt the same lightness in a follow-up session with Jeri. “

Self-Care Before The Family Holiday

The Holidays are more enjoyable when you take care of yourself. Now is an excellent time to schedule a Healing Touch session to help you stay balanced, centered and grounded through the month ahead.

“I feel SO much better since our session Wednesday–thank you!  It feels a lot like the cloud of depression or heaviness or whatever that landed as soon as I left the workshop has finally mostly lifted.  It is a sensation of being physically lighter (and more energized, but in a good way) and just feeling more balance and less easily angry.  I’m grateful to have this now–and grateful to have this too going into a week at home with my family.”
