Energetic Healing: Feeling Safe With An Open Heart

“Being grounded is the ability to feel safe. Feeling safe occurs when your heart has opened. An open heart is the end result of providing the kindness, care, support, and attention that only you were designed to offer yourself.”

 -Matt Kahn Whatever Arises, LOVE That page 201

Reentering ‘normal’ life after a pandemic is overwhelming. I am surprised at how stressful this shift has been for everyone, including myself. Nothing feels normal anymore. For many people, nothing feels safe. It is so easy to emotionally shut down.

How can you stay safe, and keep your heart open, as you step back out into the world? As you enter into rooms with more than three people and attend public gatherings? When do you stop wearing your mask?

It is so inspiring to see Reiki, and Healing Touch gently, but profoundly, assist my clients as they navigate this transition. Energetic healing resets the nervous system. I know how essential receiving my own Healing Touch sessions have been for me during this shift.

Self-care is mandatory now. Things that we may have thought of as luxury expenses are now basic survival strategies for emotional and mental health.  This may include massage, a long hot bath, acupuncture treatments, earthing,  a walk on the beach, or an energetic healing session.

Take time to take care.

Matt Kahn: Whatever Arises, LOVE That

“Underneath it all, I came to discover that the source of a closed heart, a noisy mind, low self-esteem, or an out-of-control-ego is an overstimulated nervous system.”

 – Matt Kahn from his book whatever arises LOVE that

This book has helped me see at my energy practice from a whole new perspective.  It will probably become one of those books that ends up close to my meditation chair for a long time.

“No matter how many years you have spent immersed in spiritual discourse, the living realization of truth cannot be fully revealed until the nervous system is relaxed. Even on a mystical level, the degree to which a nervous system relaxes also determines who sees angels, ghosts, alternate dimensions, or even receives intuitive messages.”

 – Matt Kahn from his book whatever arises LOVE that

The whole idea of an overstimulated nervous system makes so much sense. After a Healing Touch/Reiki session, many of my clients immediately describe their visions, guides, visitations with relatives that have past and all hues of colored lights. Several people have even asked me why they only have these experiences when they come to see me.
