A Story Of Spirit And Healing From San Francisco Healing Touch Practitioner Kathleen Wyckoff

I have so many gifted, compassionate, and committed healing colleagues in my life.  I am so supported and inspired by this community.  Below is an inspiring story of spirit and healing from San Francisco Healing Touch Practitioner Kathleen Wyckoff.

Dear Jeri:
I want to share an experience I had recently. I was working on a client and during the session, I had a strong feeling of motherly love for her, a sense that she was my child and I wished her peace and well being (I thought of Our Lady and divine motherly love and imagined her surrounded in that loving energy.)  At the end of the session the client thanked me and was in tears, she mentioned she felt “so supported.”  During the session, she had felt that her mother was on one side of her and her mother-in-law was on the other side of the table. They were both letting her know that she was supported and that she “had this,” that she was going to be OK. Both mothers had passed away from a similar illness as the one my client had been receiving treatment for. My client’s feedback was such a validation to what I had experienced during the session and a confirmation of “why” I LOVE doing energy healing!
Wishing you a great week!  In light,
Kathleen

Distance Healing: A Testimonial

I would like to share a testimonial from a client:

“Hi, Jeri,

That session was fascinating!!.  There are vast spaces where I cannot remember what happened, although it seemed I was in conversation with someone or something.  At the start, I felt my hands get hot and tingling.  Then I was drifting.  I became very aware of pain in my chest over my heart, mostly when I took a deep breath.  This was merely puzzling.   I then felt/saw a claw, like a backhoe, excavating my chest.  No pain. Dark muck and a little ‘monster’ (whom I know well) were being removed.  Everything in my chest was clawed out until there was only a white, glistening backbone.   I ‘realized’ that I did not have to befriend all the darkness in there, it could simply be replaced with LIGHT.   More drifting, my head flooded with light, then an abrupt wakening. Like the boom of a door shutting.
‘Huh’, I thought, then checked texts.  You had written 1 min prior.
I feel much more centered and grounded!
Thank you!  Thank you!!”

Sometimes there is a lot of tangible activity experienced in a healing, and sometimes there is just peace. There are times when my client falls asleep right away and wakes up when the session is over. Every session is so different and brings us exactly what we need at that moment.

Rudolf Steiner On New Year’s Day

A Verse for Our Time

We must eradicate from the soul
All fear and terror of what comes towards man out of the future.

We must acquire serenity
In all feelings and sensations about the future.

We must look forward with absolute equanimity
To everything that may come.

And we must think only that whatever comes
Is given to us by a world-directive full of wisdom.

It is part of what we must learn in this age,
namely, to live out of pure trust,
Without any security in existence.

Trust in the ever present help
Of the spiritual world.

Truly, nothing else will do
If our courage is not to fail us.

And let us seek the awakening from within ourselves
Every morning and every evening.

-Rudolf Steiner

When I first read this poem I was inspired. A few days later the thought of eradicating all terror and fear felt impossible, maybe even hopeless. After meditating yesterday, I reread it and found it once again uplifting. For me, this poem is like a post in the ground, letting me know where I am at emotionally in my own internal landscape. 🙂

2020 was my year of recommitment. I recommitted every day to focus on the light, not fight the darkness, and consciously acknowledge all my emotional reactions to the outer world to the best of my ability. I am, again and again, moment to moment, recommitting this year to commitment (that’s a lot of commitment) seeking Rudolf Steiner’s awakening from within myself.

Three Very Interesting Resources On Distance Healing

I have to begin this post with a confession.

I prefer in-person sessions over distance treatments. I would much rather see my clients face-to-face, talk with them in the same room, and feel the healing energy with my hands.

That being said, I have been very impressed with the benefits my clients have received from our distance healing sessions since sheltering-in-place started. Sometimes I even feel like the distance healing sessions reach deeper into my client’s energy field than the in-person treatments.

Maybe that is because of the accelerated energy of this crazy year. There are new levels of consciousness opening up. Transformation is ever-present. Outdated structures and routines are breaking down daily, and at the same time people are healing themselves faster than I have ever witnessed before.

Distance healing is a great way to support ourselves and each other in these unpredictable times.

Below are three resources on distance healing I found helpful to me.

Click the link below for a brilliant (I mean really, really interesting ) article on remote healing sessions by Tim McConville, BS, HTCP/1. Tim is a certified Healing Touch practitioner/instructor. He is also a Qualified Mentor and instructor for the Mentor Training course in the Healing Touch Program.

My foundational training to be an energetic practitioner was with Healing Touch Program and highly recommend the current online classes.

Healing In Hospitals

A quote from the book: A Business Of Healing

“Many of the “miracle sessions” I have experienced with my clients have been in hospitals. Getting energetic healing modalities such as Reiki and Healing Touch into our medical institutions would eliminate so much suffering and promote vital self-healing. If there is one way this book may influence the world may it be to encourage energetic healing in hospitals. Even one healing session in a hospital can create enough energetic support to turn a patient’s healing process around. Energy healing in hospitals would greatly shift our medical culture.”

“I also want to say that everyone can hold space in the hospital for themselves or a loved one. Prayer, meditation, or pujas are all so helpful. Even when it does not feel like you are doing anything, let me assure you that you are. You will feel it, experience it, and know it on a deep level the more you do it.

One grounded centered person can shift the energy of an entire room.

We. Are. More. Powerful. Than. We. Have. Ever. Imagined.

Mercury Retrograde: An Auspicious Time For a Healing

You may have heard that Mercury Retrograde may not be the best time to sign an important contract, make major financial decisions, or send a UPS package. Yet, it is a good time to reflect, review, recheck your bank accounts, and reorganize your closet.

It is an excellent time to physically, emotionally, and mentally reset. It is an auspicious time to begin a juice fast, digitally disconnect from social media, or go camping in nature for a few days.

Mercury retrograde is also the perfect time to schedule a distance healing.  It is a great opportunity to dive deep and release past issues holding you back from feeling fully present and alive in your life. In 2020, Mercury will be in retrograde from October 14 to November 3, 2020.

The Healing Power Of Acceptance and Self-Compassion

“Let us visualize a world where all global citizens are loved. Let us embrace a flow of change and send out positive thoughts of peace and acceptance. Please take a moment to honor all walks of life.”
I found this beautiful quote and intention in the Healing Touch Community Newsletter.  I wish I could report to you today that I only felt peace and positive vibes this week, but that was not my experience. 
I felt a rush of anger, despair, and grief around the tweets, news, and unfolding of events since last Friday. There was so much energy in my body; it was overwhelming. I thought about all the things that I could, and should be grateful for. That didn’t help, in fact, it made me even more irritable. 
Acceptance was my only path through it. Not acceptance of what was happening, but acceptance of how ungracefully I was experiencing it. Acceptance of how overwhelmed I was and how hopeless I felt.  Self-compassion for all that I couldn’t seem to deal with. 

After I finally felt that acceptance; I recommitted. I now feel an even deeper commitment to show up, do my best, and stay connected to my highest wisdom in every way possible. To hold space for all that is happening in these crazy times. There are infinite possibilities in this moment. I feel even more grounded, energized, and creative.

I am so grateful for my daily self-reiki treatments, breathwork sessions, and meditation practice. I can’t imagine what my life would be like without these tools.

I know the next few months may be crazy. I will probably feel overwhelmed again. I also know that my renewed commitment to holding a high vibration of acceptance for myself and peace for our world is greater than ever.

Feeling Sleepy In Healing Sessions

My Mom began reading my book.

When we talked yesterday, the first question she asked me was, “I was surprised to read that you fall asleep in your healing sessions.”

I think there are going to be a lot of things in this book that may be surprising.

Below is a short quote from the chapter called The Question, where I attempt to describe all the things that I may experience in a healing session:

“…Occasionally I may suddenly feel intensely sleepy. That is an energetic frequency that may last most of the session, or only a few minutes. When that happens, I have to focus on my breath, sit even more upright, and stay balanced until it passes. The sleepy energy has proven to be greatly beneficial for my clients, especially when I stopped resisting it.”

Early in my practice, I felt the sleepy energy much more than I do now. I can’t tell you how upset I used to get when it happened. I totally resisted it and physically tightened up when I felt it. It made me feel like I lacked the stamina, ability, and focus I should have as an Energetic Practitioner. I believed the thought that “This is happening because I am not a better healer; only losers feel sleepy when they are healing.”

One day I realized this sleepy energy was a healing vibration, just like all the more obvious high energy and sparkly frequencies. That day I was tired because I had been up most of the night before, so when the sleepy energy came in, I didn’t fight it. I didn’t resist or contract my body against it. I kind of surrendered into it because I was really tired. It lasted most of the session. It was a little intense holding that space for almost fifty minutes, but I did it.

It was a great healing for my client—one of those profoundly off-the-chart sessions. I realized  ‘sleepy’ energy is a powerful healing energy. Now when it comes, I relax my body into it, deepen my breath to stay focused, and hold it for as long as needed for my client.

I  also realized I spent the first five years of my healing practice resisting an energy that my clients may have needed to rebalance and heal. If I had not been so judgemental, I could have been learning how to hold it as efficiently as possible, rather than trying to get over it.

That being said, I am also always open to the information that I might need more sleep, that I might be run down, or need a few days off.  I always check my grounding before, during, and after the session. My focus is to stay as open to all information that arises in my healings. That information may tell me I need more rest.

I hope that by sharing my experiences in this book, other practitioners will not waste so much time resisting any of the beautiful, restorative, and rebalancing healing energy available to us.
