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!

Advanced Chakra Diagnosis and Treatment Workshop Taught By Janna Moll

Janna Moll teaches an advanced course for experienced Energy Practitioners called Advanced Chakra Diagnosis and Treatment. I took this class about three months ago and immediately started working with much of the new material and techniques in my Healing Practice. This class is incredibly practical and significantly deepened my understanding of the energy system. I highly recommend this course.

Janna Moll is the founder and President of Energy Medicine Specialists, an organization that offers beginner to advanced practice coursework in the field of Energy Medicine. She also has a private practice in Highlands Ranch Colorado, called the Heart Healing Center. In her energy practice, she combines her training in multiple energy disciplines that include Healing Touch, Reiki, Polarity, Pranic, Reconnection, EFT, Therapeutic Touch, psychotherapy and coaching.

Janna Moll studied Healing Touch with founder Janet Mentgen, and has studied with about every healer in the book. She is not shy about sharing her ideas and opinions in class, or at lunch, about what works in her practice and what doesn’t. For me, this alone was quite helpful on many levels.


Clarity. Janna Moll has clarity.


In this short post I will contain my enthusiasm for this class to three other main points:

One: This class significantly shifted my working model of the chakra system. Janna works with scientist Dale Ferg, who contributed much of the physics research in EMS courses. I am not going to go into the details here, but my perception of the chakras changed. I have to admit that this was a little unnerving the first day, yet this was the second biggest take-away from the class for me. My “new” perception of the chakra system is giving me more information in my client’s sessions.

Two: The healings I received in this class were exceptionally profound for me. Maybe I just really needed the energy work or maybe I was just ready to go to my next level. Everyone in the class gave and received different types of treatments all three days and I also heard many of the other practitioners say the same thing about their healings.  Janna Moll and class coordinator Grace Gowan created and sustained an exceptional energetic container for the class.

Three:  Janna Moll is a fireball. Three days with Janna Moll is super fun. I know “fun” is not a requirement for an advanced energetic healing class, but hey, three days is a long time and I think it’s important to know what you are getting into.

I would like to thank Grace Gowan in Sunnyvale for coordinating this class. Grace will also be coordinating the Advanced Hara Diagnosis and Treatment for Janna in 2015. Dates will soon be posted on Janna’s website.

I can’t wait!
