Healing Between Sessions

I would like to share a few suggestions that have helped my clients manage chronic pain, anxiety, and release stuck energy between healing sessions. These recommendations have created profound shifts in my client’s lives.

Set an intention to keep your attention on whatever is happening in the moment.

Fully acknowledge and give space to every emotion, thought and physical sensation in your body to the best of your ability. When you are overwhelmed and start to compartmentalize your experiences, just be aware of that too. No judgment; it’s all good. Just notice what you notice.

Take time, if even only a few seconds, to acknowledge and create space around more subtle perceptions such as fatigue, restlessness, and anything that makes you feel uncomfortable. Notice any resistance, and do not resist the resistance. You will not believe how interesting this is.

This internal focus is one way to create a stronger connection to your body, as well as expand your consciousness and access deeper levels of your creativity and intuition. Your experience of life can become more effortless, more abundant, and even more fun.

Don’t take my word for it. You may feel exhausted in the beginning but just notice that, too. The pay off is huge.

Anxiety and Healing Part 2

There appears to be a lot more energy moving on the planet now. Everything is in transformation: some things are rapidly breaking down, and other things are healing incredibly quickly. I have witnessed some miraculous paradigm shifts in the last six months. 

As an energetic practitioner, I am seeing clients, a few who I have been working with for years, opening up to new levels of energy in their bodies. In general, this is a good thing, yet a sudden increase in energy can at first be experienced as anxiety.

When I ask people to feel into the physical sensation of anxiety inside their body, they often describe it as a surge of heat or overwhelming force.

Imagine your body’s energy as water, and picture that energy moving inside you within pipes as big as a garden hose. Then imagine if the volume or flow of that water significantly increased inside that hose. Initially, that would feel very uncomfortable, maybe even scary, until the pipes expanded and adjusted to the larger water flow.

One thing that has helped many of my clients adjust to the rising level of energy is exercise. Twenty minutes a day of sweat-producing cardio exercise – such as Zumba, using an elliptical trainer, or dancing – really helps the physical body relax into these new levels of energy.

Healing Touch Practitioner Janna Moll describes what has been occurring in her healing practice below. Janna Moll, MSN, HTCP/I, LMT is the founder of the Heart Healing Center, Inc. (HHC) and Energy Medicine Specialists (EMS) in Highlands Ranch, CO.

“In my client practice, I am noticing more people stating having issues of unease and feeling under pressure.  Some state they feel ‘ready to blow’.  I treat a lot of practitioners in my practice, so primarily these clients are doing a fair amount of self-care already (which we know keeps a person in balance through challenge better). They are noticing this pressure building and it isn’t far-fetched to see that it can be tied to the tensions and discord in the world at large.  The news, our government, and beliefs around decency are being bombarded on a daily basis. Remember: As goes the world, so go we. The new clients I have are often stating that they just can’t ‘get by’ anymore as they are having physical symptoms related to stress such as ‘hearts racing’, or ‘insomnia’, or ‘depression/anxiety medication not working as well’.  For those with a racing mind (called the Monkey Mind as it jumps around continuously) or overwhelming emotions, getting into the physical body through exercise can release the building pressure.

Other grounding/movement opportunities exist that have been shown to be effective as well, such as gardening, breathwork, and FAR infrared saunas.

Classes in Energy Medicine may be an effective alternative to ‘going it alone’ as it puts one in community and teaches self-care techniques. Both are big advantages in this trying time!”

Janna’s Energy Medicine classes (which include all levels of the Healing Touch Program) are extremely valuable for everyone at this time. I took the Advanced Chakra Diagnosis and Treatment and it significantly deepened my understanding of energy healing.

So, the bottom line here is exercise and community are wonderful allies in “high energy” times.

See you at the gym!

Anxiety and Healing

Anxiety is currently the number one reason people are booking  Healing Touch/ Reiki sessions.

Clients are experiencing anxiety that ranges from a constant feeling of stress to full-blown panic attacks.

Experiencing a calming state of peace, calmness and safety heals anxiety.

A Reiki and Healing Touch session brings your body, mind, and emotions to a state of balance that resets the nervous system and begins to establish a new normal way of being. Feeling tight and contracted in the body can become so habitual your body forgets how to relax. Sometimes even experiencing a peaceful state of consciousness does not even feel comfortable at first.

I have witnessed so many people over the last few years release debilitating anxiety with Hands-on-Healing. Sometimes in one session there is an instantaneous shift that the person can maintain after the treatment, yet most of the time it takes a series of healings.

There are a thousand reasons why people have overwhelming anxiety, and the cause of anxiety is unique to the person having it. Of course, we are living in chaotic times, and almost everyone feels stressed after listening to the news. I know that for me, receiving regular Healing Touch treatments is what gives me the ability to stay grounded and hold space for all my emotions as they arise and pass.

The greatest healer of stress is the experience of peace.

Book a Healing session to feel that peace.

Transmuting Energy and Healing Anxiety

I would like to share a comment made by my friend and Healing Touch Practitioner Vivian Drewis about last week’s post:  Healing: Befriending All Our Emotions.

 

“What a perceptive account of a session. Amazing awareness! I have worked with emotions for many years now doing my own personal work and assisting hundreds of others. I incorrectly thought that we simply release the emotions (actually created in our bodies in very particular organs and glands) once we can identify them and “own” them. What I now understand is that these frequencies do not just disappear. Energy can never be destroyed…as per Einstein. What actually happens is that the negatively charged frequencies are transmuted back to benign elements that we utilize again in our bodies. What a different view on it. It’s like welcoming your child back home.”

I have been thinking about Vivian’s comment all week. This quote describes exactly what I “feel” kinesthetically happening in my client’s energy field during my healing sessions. After they relax and stop resisting emotions such as anxiety and fear, there is almost always the sensation of more life-force energy, or a higher frequency of energy, in their biofield. I thought this was because the contracted, denser energy had released.  Maybe this higher vibrational energy is their emotions being  “transmuted back into benign elements.”

I find this incredibly exciting. It may not change my healing sessions in any way, but it just makes sense. I love it when things make sense. I also like the idea that when I can finally relax and create space around my emotions, it increases my life-force energy.

Thank you, Vivian!

Healing: Befriending All Our Emotions

I would like to share a beautifully written description of my client’s healing session. It is a wonderful account of how surrendering to anxiety and befriending our emotions is what essentially heals us.  

“I mostly feel the energy shifts as gentle changes in the vibration in my body (I love to envision the atom models we used in chemistry class just shifting a little in their movement…).  Generally, it doesn’t get more intense until you get towards my upper body.  I think the moment you felt the biggest energy shift (was it on my left you said?) was actually when I felt the most relaxed, like I could almost fall asleep.  It feels almost as restful in those moments as if I had taken a long nap.  And there was still this gentle white light I could feel but not see.  I think I’ve said it before–but whenever you place your hands over my sternum, sort of the area where all of my anxiety and deep emotion live, it is this incredible feeling of being witnessed and not having to hold it all myself.  It’s occasionally a little terrifying, since that space seems to open more during sessions (as I imagine it should) and so much floats in and out, but it’s always a calming sense to be seen too. 

 

One interesting thing that happened too that I wanted to tell you and thought I could say better in writing–I think when you switched to the right arm, I had this moment where I realized my breathing had become like I was about to cry. Almost immediately after that, I had the tightening sensation of anxiety in my chest.  I’ve never had anxiety rise during a session before.  I initially wanted to just push it away and tell it that it had no place there, and then I realized that wasn’t really the point.  So with some degree of struggle, I was able to sort of look at it and say something along the lines of  “hi, anxiety.  You’re a part of me, so it’s ok that you’re here…” and then I think I told it something along the lines of  “let’s go see a sunrise together sometime” (where that came from I have no idea, but I think I was trying to befriend it?)–and then my mind cleared completely and the amount of energy in my body changed and became so much higher and stayed that way until we finished.”

A Video Report: Healing Touch Therapy Reduces Pain And Anxiety

I just love this little news video about Healing Touch. Click here to watch it.

I love the shot of a women receiving a session with her full-length boots on. I love hearing about another headache that was released with energy work, and I love the fact this was made in Ketchum, Idaho.

Enjoy.

Healing Touch and Anxiety

IMG_7443

In the last half of 2014, many of my new clients came to try Healing Touch because they were suffering from anxiety, panic attacks and/or trauma. I have to admit, even I was surprised at how effective Healing Touch has been for these clients.

Here is a testimony from a man who had been experiencing debilitating anxiety for years:

“I was suffering from extreme anxiety and insomnia when a friend referred me to Jeri.  From the very first session I left feeling free from anxiety for the first time in many months. Jeri told me that the anxiety might come back, but that with each session I wold experience longer periods of feeling calm and anxiety-free. She was absolutely correct. After four sessions the bouts of anxiety became so infrequent that I was able to transition to seeing Jeri every month or so for a “tune up”. I am also able to sleep again. Going to Jeri was a life changing experience for me and words can’t begin to express how grateful I am to her and Healing Touch.”

There are many sessions in which I sense my client has healed themselves in the first 5 minutes. Being able to HOLD the new level of consciousness, vibration, or groundedness and stay healed becomes the focus of these energetic sessions.

I have had clients that have only needed one Healing Touch session, but more often, it takes a short series of sessions. Each one builds on the next to assist my client in reaching their new level of alignment and vibration. Check out an older post I wrote: A Healing Pattern.

We have an amazing and profound capacity to heal ourselves physically, mentally and emotionally when we come into energetic alignment. We really do.

I see it happen every day.
