c. Jeri Lawson 2016 All Rights ReservedI finally wrote the article I had wanted to read when I first started my healing practice. I answered all the questions I had about how to support clients through chemotherapy energetically.

This is the culmination of 16 years of experience. Now all healers, especially Healing Touch Practitioners, may feel even more inspired to assist people who are going through chemotherapy.

It will be forever online and accessible at the Healing Touch Program’s Energy Magazine archive after January 5th.  You can download it here in a PDF version and here in the flip-page format. The article is on page 25 through 28.

If you are supporting someone going through chemotherapy, please feel free to call me with any questions. You can make a tremendous difference in your client, friend or family member’s healing journey.

Many thanks to Energy Magazine Editors Karin Ogren and the Margaret Nies.

c. Jeri Lawson 2016 All Rights ReservedThe more we receive, the more we can give.

There is a tremendous, yet subtle beauty, in the moment we let go and receive.

It is so profound to witness my clients relax into this receptive state during a Reiki session. Muscles release, breathing deepens, and energy begins to flow unobstructed through the physical body. There is often such an increase in energy flow, of life force energy, that my clients say they feel energized and relaxed at the same time.

This expansiveness, this receptivity, connects us to all of life. This healing state resets our nervous system, grounds and aligns our energy fields.

Now is the time to stay centered. Self-care is a powerful gift for us all.

“Remember, we are all affecting the world every moment, whether we mean to or not. Our actions and states of mind matter, because we’re so deeply interconnected with one another. Working on our own consciousness is the most important thing that we are doing at any moment, and being love is the supreme creative act.”

  – Ram Dass

 

It is time to connect with that which is greater than ourselves.

There is so much support, energy and guidance available for every one of us.

All we have to do is tap into it. It takes courage and commitment to take the time, quiet our mind, and let whatever needs to surface come up to be consciously released. It takes a tremendous amount of self-love and compassion to keep our hearts open.

Just by connecting with Higher Consciousness, we connect with All-That-Is, Our True Self, Our Highest Guidance, which is a profoundly healing state.

How can you connect with this healing space, with this inner wisdom?

Meditation? A walk in the woods? Music? A Breathwork session? A Reiki or Healing Touch Treatment?

Now is the time for radical self-care.

This is the time to clear and ground ourselves so we can act from our highest wisdom.

 

 Jeri Lawson will be at a Breathwork Retreat today through Sunday, connecting with her highest wisdom. She is available for Healing Touch, Reiki, and Clarity Breathwork sessions again on Monday, November 21st, 2016  in the Temescal Area of Oakland, California 510-601-9632

IMG_1255It’s healing.

As humans, we all have the ability to heal ourselves and hold space for others to heal.

Put your hands on your heart right now and tune into yourself for a minute. What do you feel? The pressure of your hand? Heat? Pulsing? Do you feel more present? Emotion? Space?

Take another full minute right now as you read this, and breath the energy of your hands into your heart. Notice what you notice. No judgement. Just be aware. Are you surprised at how much you can feel?

We are all superheros.

 

If you are interested in leaning more about your super powers, take a class in Healing Touch or Reiki.

There is a Level One Healing Touch Class coming up in Lafayette, CA, Oct 15 & 16, 2016. Taught by a wonderful healer and a woman I have worked with for years – Laurie Ratto RN, HTCP and CCA.

There is an amazing Reiki teacher and community in Davis, California. Check out Elizabeth A Fulmer, RMT, KMT, HTP-A and her website: ReikiFocus.

If you love animals, go to Kathleen Prasad’s Animal Reiki Source. She teaches in Santa Rosa, California, and all over the country.

Learn to access your deeper potential. Super powers can come in handy.

I would like to share some research about energy work supporting people with cancer.

“Growing evidence supports the potential benefits to patients with cancer when the best conventional care is combined effectively with complementary approaches (Deng & Cassileth, 2005; Deng et al., 2007). Patients want more information about the potential benefits of complementary therapies; in addition, they believe access to those therapies should be included in standard cancer care (Coss, McGrath & Caggiano, 1998).”

The Use of Healing Touch in Integrative Oncology by Laura K. Hart, RN, PhD, CHTP/I, Mildred I. Freel, RN, MEd, CHTP/I, Pam J. Haylock, PhD, RN, and Susan K. Lutgendorf, PhD

This in-depth article was written for oncology nurses describing the integrative use of Healing Touch in conjunction with chemotherapy and radiation for cervical cancer patients. It can be downloaded from The Consciousness and Healing Initiative (CHI). Warning: If you go to the CHI website you may be there for hours. It’s fascinating.

The Use of Healing Touch in Integrative Oncology is a dense and informative article. There is even a breakdown of several Healing Touch techniques – magnetic connecting and clearing, chakra connection, liver drain and mind clearing – and how each technique benefits the patients.

There are many interesting ideas in this article that I could write about, but that would make a very long post. I will just note here how the article defines of words “complementary” and “integrative.”

“Referring to alternative modalities as complementary indicates that they are being used in conjunction with conventional therapy. When the modalities are considered integrative, they are being incorporated into the care delivery of the medical system.”

I think I will be using the word “integrative” quite a bit now – especially when manifesting a world vision of energy work becoming readily available in our medical culture. Yes!

DSCF3335.JPG copyEven after being an energetic practitioner for over 20 years, there are still moments when I just have to step back in awe. Awe and profound gratitude. This work is so powerful and beautiful.

Last week I had one of these moments after a session with a client who had phantom pain.

Phantom pain is experienced in a limb or an organ that is not physically part of the body; often an amputated arm or leg.

In the clinic where I share Healing Touch, I worked with a woman who had extreme pain in her left leg that had been amputated many years before.  She was suffering. She told me her pain medication was no longer controlling her pain and on a scale of one to ten, her pain level was a 10.

I could feel with my hands the areas in her biofield where the “blockage” was – about 6” where her left knee would have been and then all along the inner shin from the knee down. She was so sensitive to my hands in her energy field that I had to move very slowly, or she would twinge in agony. For the first ten minutes of the session, I held my hands just outside the area of the blockage of the knee that was physically not there. I used a technique in Healing Touch called pain drain.

It took at least 20 minutes before she could even begin to relax. The full session was 50 minutes.

After the healing, she looked so relieved. She stated that her pain was now a 3. She was also very comforted to know that I could feel exactly where her pain was in the leg that was not physically there. We had our session at a clinic, so I will not be able to follow up with her. I don’t know if the pain came back after our session, or eventually went away.

I’ve never worked in my private practice with phantom pain to see if a series of healings would completely and permanently relieve phantom pain, but in my sessions with Veterans and those done in volunteer clinics, Healing Touch has been very effective in reducing phantom pain.

Awe and profound gratitude. It’s a good feeling.

IMG_6930After a healing, the most common statement clients make is “I feel so relaxed.”

Like they didn’t know it was possible.

They are not just relaxed, my clients are experiencing what it is like to be grounded, with their chakras open and their energy balanced.

It feels really good.

Being grounded and balanced is so incredibly healing. When my biofield is balanced and my chakras are open, I can best describe it as feeling expanded, energized, relaxed and grounded all in the same moment.

For me, it’s a simple, clear feeling.

When was the last time you felt deeply relaxed and balanced? What makes you feel expanded and open?

Singing? Running, Golfing? Painting? Reading In the Garden? Playing With your dog or walking in the woods?

There are many ways we can keep our auras open and clear – do the things that make you happy. You don’t even have to get an energy session to bring you into energetic balance, although it certainly helps.

And sometimes getting a healing is just about feeling good.
