Healing: Acknowledging Inner Guidance

When your nervous system relaxes, it is much easier to connect with your intuition and highest wisdom. During a Healing or Breathwork session, many people receive valuable guidance.

This guidance can range from ‘call your friend John tomorrow’ to a complete vision of your life purpose. I have witnessed these things happen for my clients and everything in between.

People tend to want the big vision. I include myself in this group. I certainly find big visions exciting and somewhat comforting.

Yet, calling John could be the key to a massive life shift, and that conversation may reveal your next step. Yet, as incredibly valuable as this kind of inner guidance is,  I find people dismiss it and end up not calling John.

Are you acknowledging and following your inner guidance? How does guidance sound/feel/look to you? Is there resistance to calling John? Why? What meditative practices reconnect you to yourself?

Taking the time to rest, center, and balance our energy makes it so much easier to open to simple next-step possibilities. In these times, creating space to reconnect to our deepest internal guidance is a radical act. An act that can bring deep peace.

I would love to hold the space for you to access this peace.

We’re Wired to Heal Each Other

This talk was ‘flagged’ by TED, stating that Dr. Jain is speaking about her “personal research approach.” TED also warned her not to use words like Reiki or Chi.

Wow. Words are so powerful.

Healing energy is a natural inherent human ability that we can all access. Talks like this are crucial in expanding our consciousness and increasing the quality of our life.

Click here to check out a list of scientific references Dr. Jain provided to support her talk on the Consciousness and Healing Initiative (CHI) website. This list includes 29 peer-reviewed, published scientific references.

I could write twenty posts on the inspiring ideas presented in this video. I am so excited to share it with you.

Thank you, Dr. Shamini Jain.

Clarity Breathwork: A Daily and Divine Self-Care Practice

“Clarity Breathwork has changed my spiritual practice and life into a calmer, more relaxed and expansive feeling. Since being introduced to it, I have used it daily as part of my meditation and self-care practice. The sense of peacefulness and bliss that flows through me when I am finished is divine.  I highly recommend Clarity Breathwork for everyone. ” 

  • – Client
  • Breathwork is a powerful process of healing and transformation; It has been a foundational part of my own self-care for many years. I breathe with my breathworker at least once a month and on my own whenever I feel disconnected or off-balance. This practice keeps me connected to spirit and the greater consciousness.  It is profound. It is Divine.

White Frosted Crystal Singing Bowls

For the last nine months or so, I have been playing crystal singing bowls during my morning meditation. The classic white frosted singing bowls. These bowls have been instrumental in helping me stay grounded, especially between clients and before healing sessions.

I have also been watching all the youtube videos I can find, reading sound healing blogs, and learning everything I can about vibration, sound, and healing.

After extensive research on sound healers, I found a workshop with someone who appeared to resonate as I do with the old-school frosted white bowls. I took Melissa Felsenstein’s Level One Online Sound Healing training last weekend. You can check out her website here: https://www.innersoundsmeditation.com/melissa-felsenstein

I am SO glad I took this workshop. It was amazing. I loved every minute. We learned about the science of sound, deep listening,  sequencing for the nervous system, and the anatomy of a sound bath. I love Melissa’s practical, playful and intuitive approach. Her partner Jason Hee did the technical support, and the sound was excellent.

I have been so inspired, and my personal use of the bowls has deepened, as well as my ability to stay grounded. In this crazy world now, staying grounded is a huge deal.

I am so busy with my healing business, so I don’t see myself running out to do sound baths. That said, playing the bowls has shifted my healing space; I sense so much more in my client sessions. I have been ‘feeling’ sounds in my client’s body for a long time now, and many healings feel like my client is tuning (coming into harmony) underneath my hands. I am becoming aware of this even more during my healings after the workshop – it’s like something new has opened up. It is crazy. Wonderfully crazy.

Thank you, Milissa and Jason!

Clarity Breathwork: Testimonial For Touch

♥♥♥
I was a massage therapist for many years and that experience  has served me well in my Breathwork practice. When I hold space for my clients in a Breathe, I often use touch to help them get the most from their session.
A hand placed on the heart area can open up so much energy when the breath becomes unsteady. Holding my client’s feet can be such a gentle way to return the focus to the body.  Sometimes I use my hands quite a bit in a session, and other times I don’t physically touch my client at all. There are so many ways to help someone feel safe. Below is from an email a client sent after her Breathe:
I remember a moment where I had some really bad epigastric* pain (just after one of my waves of nausea, of course), and you put your hand right over that spot for a bit.  Just before that, I’d had some pain in my right trap*, and you moved your hand from where it was to hold that spot exactly.  It amazed me, as it does every time you do that, that you knew exactly where it hurt.
* Epigastric pain is in the upper abdomen just below the ribs.
* Trapezius: upper shoulder muscle

Jump-start Your Meditation Practice

These are the times a regular meditation, prayer, or yoga practice can be really beneficial for your health and well-being.

Coming for a Reiki or Healing Touch session is a great way to jump-start your meditation practice – no matter how you meditate. Energy sessions calm and reset your nervous system, so it is much easier to focus in your daily practice.

Here is a wonderful quote and article on Self-Reiki treatments by New York Reiki Master Pamela Miles:

“The practice you actually do, is the practice that’s the best for you.”

Enjoy.

Healing: Feeling Unsafe To Be Safe

In Chapter Eight of her book  Welcoming the Unwelcome, Pema Choödrön writes:

“The more willing you are to step out of your comfort zone, the more comfortable you feel in your life. Situations that used to arouse fear and nausea become easier to relax in. On the other hand, if you stay in the comfort zone all the time, it shrinks.”

 

I do everything I can to create a safe place for my clients when they come for a healing. I make sure the temperature of the room is perfect for each individual  (there is a huge range of preferences). I choose their favorite music and set the volume at a soothing level. Each session is at least two hours apart, so no one leaves feeling rushed, or ungrounded.

Despite all my good intentions,  I often witness my clients feeling unsafe to relax and let go on the healing table. I have realized that to truly create a space for my clients to feel safe, they often have to feel unsafe.

After long periods of stress their emotions, mind, and physical bodies have tightened up to protect, support, and defend them. Letting their guard down and relaxing their muscles can feel foreign, and even scary.  Many people receiving an energetic treatment are sometimes surprised in the first session to find out how much trauma they were holding.

Yet, just this conscious awareness of our internal state is so healing, however difficult it is to first acknowledge.  Even if people “fail” to relax in their session, that subtle inner awareness begins to change their experience of life for the better.

Sometimes people are back to their center in one session and sometimes it takes months, even years for others to finally experience what it is like to feel relaxed and safe in their bodies and in the world.

Report From A Breath Session

“So much of the breathe is a blur.  In some ways, it felt long, it felt the full 50 minutes.  In others, I did not want it to end because it was lovely.  I did manage to focus on my breath.  I did manage to float.  That’s what it felt like—I would float.  Detach completely.  I was conscious of it—the coming and going.  I’d leave my body and come back.  I’d feel the breath as I came back.  I was very conscious of coming back into my body and then slowly feeling myself float off again.  It was gentle, light.  There was a LOT of light too, so much light.  The whole room held all this light almost the whole time.”
– Client after her Breathe
Every Breathwork session is different and gives you exactly what you need in that moment. I have witnessed so many people release stress and tension, resolve childhood trauma, and connect to their own healing energy.
Clarity Breathwork changed my life and my own sessions continue to give me access to my own deeper guidance.  Sharing Breathwork with other people, especially in these times, is such a joy.

Reiki Supports All Stages Of Your Healing Journey

On social media, I recently read that Reiki treatments alone are not sufficient to heal all aspects of your life.

I might agree with that on certain levels, yet Reiki and energy treatments can definitely support you throughout the whole of your healing journey.

Whether you are healing from a cancer diagnosis, are going through a round of insomnia, or at a point in your life where you can address old childhood trauma,  Self-Reiki is always there for you. All you have to do is put your hands on your heart and let the energy comfort, rebalance, and relax you. This peace is so powerful during times of great transformation and expansion. Reiki healing is abundant and always accessible.

In my healing practice, I have many clients who are working with Psychotherapists, Chiropractors,  Acupuncturists,  Functional Medicine Doctors, and Family Marriage Counselors. Reiki sessions help these clients integrate and embody the shifts from all their healing sessions. Lately, this has been especially true – and productive – for people doing Ayahuasca and Plant Medicine Ceremonies.

Reiki treatments also gently access old thoughts and beliefs that they can take back to process with their therapist.

Two Hour Healing Sessions

I book all my hands-on healing sessions two hours apart.

I feel so lucky and grateful that I can structure my business in this way and spend this much time with each client.

Many Energetic Practitioners have time constraints, especially working in a hospital, clinic, or spa environment. I want to say right away that even twenty minutes of Reiki and Healing Touch is profoundly beneficial. We definitely need more Energetic Practitioners in our medical culture.

For me to work in such deep altered states of consciousness in my private practice, my clients need the time to integrate the shifts they may experience after the treatment is over. It doesn’t happen every session, yet often people release such deep emotional patterns, limiting thoughts and beliefs, that they can initially feel disoriented before they get off the table.

Sometimes there is also an incredible expansion of consciousness. Openings like this are life-changing, and twenty minutes on the table after the session to reconnect gently with your body is so grounding – especially when you have to jump back in the car and continue your day.

These shifts happen more frequently when my client receives regular weekly, biweekly, or monthly sessions and every session goes deeper.
