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 and Energetic Healing Support For Psychedelic Medicine

In the Bay Area, Psychedelic Medicine is now fairly mainstream – well, in my world anyway.

“In clinical research settings around the world, renewed investigations are taking place on the use of psychedelic substances for treating illnesses such as addiction, depression, anxiety and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).”

Psychedelic Medicine: A Re-emerging Therapeutic Paradigm from the Canadian Medical Association Journal by Kenneth W. Tupper, PhD,  Evan Wood, MD PhD, Richard Yensen, PhD, and Matthew W. Johnson, PhD

With Netflix’s limited series How to Change Your Mind by Michael Pollan and Paul Stamets’s illuminating stories of self-healing in Fantastic Fungi, many people have begun to explore healing and spiritual growth with Psychedelic Medicine. People started calling me for healing and breathwork sessions around five years ago to prepare for their Psilocybin journeys and MDMA-Assisted Therapies.

The first client to contact me about this asked for a Reiki/Healing Touch session to help her to integrate a life-changing Ayahuasca ceremony. I learned quite a lot from this client. I began researching more about plant medicine so I could create a grounded and healing space for others on this path. It has been wonderful to witness how beneficial energetic support is for these clients.

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!

Energetic Healing and Self-Regulation

Self-regulation is an essential life skill.

It is how you balance and manage your emotions, thoughts, and actions to sustain a healthy lifestyle. Self-regulation helps you achieve overall life goals and aspirations.

Self-regulation is the difference between eating a whole bag of potatoes chips when you are upset instead of maintaining a healthy diet. It’s the difference between yelling at your partner instead of calmly talking through a problem that has upset you.

Self-regulation is something we each do every day with varying degrees of success. Anxiety, depression, binge eating, and self-medicating can happen when there is a lack of effective self-regulation.

You can learn to self-regulate more efficiently by receiving Healing Touch and Reiki sessions. There are so many energetic meditations, practices, and tools!

As an Energetic Practitioner, one of the many energy patterns I might find in a first session is that I am working with a person with a high abundance of life force energy in their physical body.

This is a good thing… Who doesn’t want more energy? Yet, self-regulating so much energy can be tricky. An overflow of energy can be experienced as anxiety.  It can be overwhelming and make my client feel edgy, nervous, overreactive, and even like they may be having a panic attack.

When I work with clients with this energy signature,  I often recommend daily exercise to help them self-regulate this energetic gift. Yoga is very helpful in keeping the body’s energy flowing and grounded. Running, going to the gym, or hiking can also help these high-energy people feel balanced and clear.

Energy work can help us live better and enjoy life more.

Staying Connected To Your Inner Compass With Healing Sessions

Healing Touch and Reiki sessions provide the perfect space for you to reconnect with your intuition.

In this age of false news and conflicting information, it is an essential survival necessity to stay in touch with your inner knowing, your internal compass, and your highest wisdom.

We face so many questions daily: When do I take off my mask? Should I go to that party on Saturday? Should I camp in the woods during fire season?  How can I best show up for the world?

Each one of us makes a difference. As I have written before, One grounded, centered person can shift the energy of an entire room. Each of us makes a huge difference on the planet at this time.

If your internal compass points you to a healing or breathwork session, give me a call.

How Do I Stay Courageous While Facing Death?

A very beautiful transaction. It’s not even what Rupert is saying, it is the space he is holding for her question. I found this video so inspiring I would like to share it with you.

Where does real courage come from?

“See that behind whatever fear arises lies ever-present being, not your ever-present being, God’s being, the only being there is. That one, or awareness itself, is ultimately deathless.”

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.

“Life is found in the present moment.”

Thich Naht Hanh embodies these practices and is able to convey his Realization in this incredible Dharma talk. This is the best introduction to Buddhist meditation I have ever experienced and I highly recommend listening to it over and over. May all beings learn to calm their minds and be happy 🙂

Tara Brach: Facing Fear In A Traumatized World

I find this video calming.

Tara names many of the things we are all feeling. She states that the essence of trauma is feeling cut off. In times of great fear we energetically shut down and that disconnects us from our soul, spirit, and our wholeness. If we don’t deepen our attention, life is easily hijacked by fear.

I have listened to this video many times and I receive deeper insights each time.
