Reiki Master John Harvey Gray

I love watching healing videos. I find it so relaxing. I feel a transmission of energy as I watch other energy practitioners, especially those that have spent decades deepening their practice.

Everyone finds their way of working with energy. Some people feel the energy and some people hear, or see the energy. Some healers energetically work with specific areas of the body and others hold a healing space of unity consciousness that allows their client self-heal.

There are so many ways to bring peace to ourselves and others.

John Harvey Gray is no longer with us on the planet, yet Dr. Lourdes Gray continues his work at The John Harvey Gray Center for Reiki Healing. She has made many videos from her student’s questions.  You can find her videos here: https://www.learnreiki.org/asklourdesgray-show/

Relax and enjoy watching!

Procrastination, Healing, And Our Inner Intelligence

IMG_8682Procrastination can come from our highest guidance. Maybe we should not do the very thing we think we should be doing.

I have found it very helpful to not judge, but honor, my resistance.  I have found that is where I can often find a direct connection to my inner intelligence.

This was a big birthday year for me. I wanted to do something special; go somewhere I had never been, try something new, create some kind of ritual to mark this moment in my life.

Last January, I sat at my computer and could not decide where to go or what to do.

It was so frustrating. I couldn’t book a flight or an AirB&B. Nothing felt right. It was weird. Of course, it became apparent why I had so much trouble making, or as it happens, not making that decision on where to go for my birthday.  I was sheltering in place.

What an interesting experience in discovering how my intuition guides me.

Now with the pandemic, I have to continue to go within to decide so many things: When should I start seeing clients in person? What is safe? How can I be in service to the world, pay my mortgage, and stay energetically aligned?

It feels so strange to make any long-term decisions in a short-term world.

That being said, I did buy a very portable healing table.

Healing And Evolving Paradigms

In this last month, I would describe my experience of energy, of the collective consciousness, as both “thick” and “fast.”

“Thick” in a way that is not bad, or negative, or even emotional, just denser. There are times when walking from my bathroom to the kitchen feels so oddly exhausting. Doing little things like washing dishes or writing emails takes so much more time and focus. It sometimes feels like everything is deep underwater.

These “thick” experiences do not last for very long, yet I still feel slightly disoriented when I return to normal. Maybe that’s because normal also feels like such a continually evolving state of consciousness.

One morning several weeks ago, I woke up feeling the denseness, and I could not shake it off. Thank God I had a distance healing booked for myself that day with Laurie Ratto. That fifty minutes shifted everything. I felt fabulous for the rest of the day, and it was one of the most effective healings I have ever received. It was incredible how different I felt.

I am also experiencing the energy of sheltering in place as “fast.”  I started noticing this before the virus, but it is really amping up now. I have been doing one or two distance healings a day since we locked in place, and it is crazy how powerful these sessions have been.

I do distance healings as if my clients are lying on my massage table. I can feel the energy under my palms moving – fast and intensely. People are healing and rebalancing so quickly. It’s mind-boggling.

I have been doing distance healings for the last twenty-five years, yet only as a last resort, when my clients were in pain and could not get to my office. I knew distance healings were effective, yet the concept of remote healing is difficult to market; I used to find it challenging to ask for $150.00 for something people don’t think is real. I’m not finding it challenging now.

My paradigm of what is possible has certainly opened up. 🙂

Healing: The Space To Open and Integrate Life

Every moment in our ordinary, everyday existence is a potential opening to higher states of consciousness and transformation.

Many of my clients are experiencing profound shifts in their awareness as they care for elderly parents, plant gardens, drive to work, and cook dinner. These shifts can sometimes feel overwhelming, even scary.

Energetic healing sessions are the perfect place to integrate, balance, and embody these new energies and expanded states of consciousness.

Two of my sessions this week felt like deep integration sessions for my clients. I could feel all the vibrations and frequencies in their physical, mental, and emotional bodies coming into harmony underneath my hands – like an orchestra tuning up before a concert.

One client said that her body felt so much more stable and her balance was much better after she got off the table. Another woman reported her heart felt so much more open and relaxed, instead of contracted and fearful.

Stay supported during these “interesting” times. Self-care is not a luxury anymore; it is a crucial part of our life purpose and a vital gift to the world.

Sensitive – The Untold Story: A Documentary on the Highly Sensitive Person

In 1991 Psychologist Dr. Elaine Aron wrote a book called The Highly Sensitive Person based on her discovery of the innate trait of high sensitivity. High sensitivity is not a disorder or condition, and there is now much more substantial research on the subject that ranges from brain studies to genetic analysis.

The Highly Sensitive Person often grows up being labeled “too timid,” and “too sensitive.” As children, they are prone to cry more easily because they have more empathy than their peers. They may also have frequent meltdowns and tantrums from being overwhelmed by daily life. They tend to be very creative, have vibrant dreams, and require more quiet time alone. Highly Sensitive Alanis Morissette states in the film that as a child, she felt “alone in a world where she was misperceived, and misunderstood.”

This temperate trait is found equally in both men and women and one out of five people. Dr. Aron discovered that Biologists also found this sensitivity trait in at least 100 animal species for survival advantages. In the wild, having a few highly sensitive animals in your pack in a dangerous environment can be lifesaving for the whole animal herd.

Are you a highly sensitive person? Check out this movie – Sensitive – The Untold Story – based on Dr. Elaine Aron’s book and featuring Alanis Morissette. I’m not promoting Amazon, but I did watch it for free on Amazon Prime.

“[Sensitive-The Untold Story] covers such a dense amount of information, and such a wide range of how and where this trait shows up…all done in a way that is very clear, and intelligent and touching. Bless you for making this film. It is an honor to have been a part of it, and to be part of this generous outreach to so many HSP’s and their loved ones. Such a major contribution to the world. Congratulations on a truly stunning documentary…. to you and your whole team. Alanis.” -Alanis Morissette

As an energetic healer, I found this documentary fascinating, and it has opened me up to new ideas about how to be a more effective practitioner. I realize many of my clients might be HSPs, and energy work is so calming for overstimulated nervous systems.

Energetic Healing: Emotional Release Isn’t Always Emotional

Emotional release can be a very gentle process. When you deeply relax in a peaceful state there is often an effortless falling away of stress and emotional overwhelm. One of my clients beautifully described her experience last week:
.
“During my session with Jeri, I felt a gentle and elegant opening and buoyant energy.  A  sense of positivity asserted itself over and over as I cycled through emotions. In those moments of openness, I became aware that I had been feeling so “stuck” and a lovely realization that I could and can move forward blossomed within me. I felt such gratitude for Jeri’s healing wisdom, as my guide. The beautiful journey she has assisted me with is continuing to unfold.”

A Restful Healing

It is important to remember that some of the most profound and beneficial healing sessions may be the ones that appear to be the least dramatic. I tend to write more about the exciting breakthroughs my clients experience in their Healing Touch and Reiki treatments, yet often the peaceful, very still sessions create the most profound shifts in the lives of my clients.

“I felt SO much better after our session yesterday.  It almost surprised me how much better I felt, because nothing huge or dramatic happened during the session. Remarkably, by the time I left yesterday, I felt completely rested despite getting one night’s adequate sleep across two instead, and I carried that forward all day.  Some of the irritability and stress had lifted too, and I finally slept well (though still not enough) and woke up feeling rested this morning.  Thank you! “

Are Healers Really Flow Hackers?

I’ve been reading and thinking about Flow.

What is Flow?

To use Jason Silva’s descriptions from the first video below, it’s that state in which time slows down or speeds up, self vanishes, action and awareness merge. Flow is an effortless state that silences our inner critic.

Abraham Maslow called Flow “a peak experience.” In the 1970s, James Fixx described Flow as “a runner’s high.” Los Angeles Lakers’ coach Phil Jackson calls it “being in the zone” and Miles Davis spoke of it as “being in the pocket.”

As a healer, I call Flow “sacred space”. Sacred space is where healer and client become one, where there is no time, where the more “I” get out of the way, the more effective the session.

I find it fascinating to see how other people are experiencing Flow and how powerful this state is. In the second video, Jamie Wheal tells the story of how his first Flow experience changed him: “I was different. I found what I had been seeking; I was home for the first time in my life.”

Jamie Wheal is a founder of the Flow Genome Project. Jamie and co-founder Steven Kotler’s website used to state:

“Flow states are now known to optimize performance, enhance creativity, drive innovation, accelerate learning, amplify memory and underpin happiness itself.”

Steven Kotler’s website is now the Flow Research Collective.  Click on the link for more information.
