Sacred Space

“When we give ourselves the chance to let go of all our tension, the body’s natural capacity to heal itself can begin to work.”

Here is an inspired message from my Animal Reiki Teacher, Kathleen Prasad.

“Own It”

“Trust Yourself”

“Lean Into Your Fear”

“Go For It”

Thank you, Kathleen.

The energy of the world has changed in the last few months and change can be stressful for many people.

Energetic practitioners of all modalities are being called to deepen our connection to source and hold space outside the healing room, as well as in our sessions.

We are so powerful. One grounded, centered person can shift the energy of an entire room.

I am very excited to write that I will be giving a workshop called: Energetic Practices: Clearing and Balancing for Healers with two amazing women –  Joy Snipes and Elizabeth Fulmer.

Elizabeth is a passionate, creative and committed Reiki teacher, and has nurtured a powerful community of Healers in Davis, California. Joy is a very insightful and gifted (like jaw-dropping amazing) healer. This is the second of four workshops we will be presenting together, and working with Joy and Elizabeth is awesome.

On Saturday, you will learn ways to clear, ground and balance your energy field. Then we will give and receive the energy work, practicing the techniques you can immediately use in your Reiki practice.

By focusing on staying clear and grounded with an open heart, we are in the greatest service to our clients, our community, and the planet. This class is a commitment to radical self-care, to holding a sacred space within ourselves. This is the greatest healing we can give the world.

Click here to register for Energetic Practices: Clearing and Balancing for Healers on Saturday, Feb 25, 2017, 9:30 am – 5 pm at the Stonegate Community Center in Davis California.

See you there!

emerald_5-2 I have been volunteering at my local animal shelter for the last 4 or 5 weeks. My weekly shift is in the morning, and the first thing I do when I arrive is clean the floors, take out the trash and start a load of laundry. I found there are a lot of blankets, beds, and towels to keep clean in an animal shelter.

After cleaning, I have been helping with the cats. Last week I was asked to visit with Emerald, a beautiful gray and white short-haired cat. He had just had surgery a few days earlier to remove a cyst on his throat.

This picture does not capture Emerald’s sweet nature. He enjoyed my visit and obviously liked the Reiki. He purred and walked all around me during our time together. He even asked for some hands-on healing and to be brushed.

I felt fantastic afterward. Animal Reiki really opens my heart.

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.

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 will be presenting a day-long Introduction to Animal Reiki workshop in Davis, California next Saturday, August 6.

Elizabeth A Fulmer, RMT, KMT, HTP-A, a gifted teacher and healer, has created a wonderful healing and Reiki community in Davis, California. I am so excited to share Reiki for Animals there next weekend.

The meditations we will be practicing are from the work of Kathleen Prasad, Founder and Director of Animal Reiki Source and President of Shelter Animal Reiki Association (SARA). I will also speak about the fascinating research of her teacher, Frans Stiene and the extensive resource available at the International House of Reiki.

In this workshop, you will learn how to “be” Reiki with your animals and connect to that profoundly compassionate space where all is one. It is in this space of oneness that healing responses naturally arise. With these simple traditional Japanese Reiki techniques, you will learn how to meditate with your dogs, cats, horses, goldfish and hummingbird and include them in your daily Reiki self-care practice.

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!
