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.

Reiki Master John Harvey Gray

I love watching healing videos. I find it so relaxing. I feel a transmission of energy as I watch other energy practitioners, especially those that have spent decades deepening their practice.

Everyone finds their way of working with energy. Some people feel the energy and some people hear, or see the energy. Some healers energetically work with specific areas of the body and others hold a healing space of unity consciousness that allows their client self-heal.

There are so many ways to bring peace to ourselves and others.

John Harvey Gray is no longer with us on the planet, yet Dr. Lourdes Gray continues his work at The John Harvey Gray Center for Reiki Healing. She has made many videos from her student’s questions.  You can find her videos here: https://www.learnreiki.org/asklourdesgray-show/

Relax and enjoy watching!

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.

Procrastination, Healing, And Our Inner Intelligence

IMG_8682Procrastination can come from our highest guidance. Maybe we should not do the very thing we think we should be doing.

I have found it very helpful to not judge, but honor, my resistance.  I have found that is where I can often find a direct connection to my inner intelligence.

This was a big birthday year for me. I wanted to do something special; go somewhere I had never been, try something new, create some kind of ritual to mark this moment in my life.

Last January, I sat at my computer and could not decide where to go or what to do.

It was so frustrating. I couldn’t book a flight or an AirB&B. Nothing felt right. It was weird. Of course, it became apparent why I had so much trouble making, or as it happens, not making that decision on where to go for my birthday.  I was sheltering in place.

What an interesting experience in discovering how my intuition guides me.

Now with the pandemic, I have to continue to go within to decide so many things: When should I start seeing clients in person? What is safe? How can I be in service to the world, pay my mortgage, and stay energetically aligned?

It feels so strange to make any long-term decisions in a short-term world.

That being said, I did buy a very portable healing table.

Healing: Creativity Is Our Power

“Creativity is inherent in being human and is key to how we learn and grow; creativity is our power. And in this day and age of great change, exercising our creativity is a revolutionary act.”

Beth Barany, Writer

Do you feel stuck and uncreative? Do you feel like you just can’t finish that book, painting, or business plan you started? Is it hard to stay focused on your projects as the world appears to be unraveling?

A distance healing may be just what you need to clear whatever is holding you back from being fully present in the moment and connected to your inner guidance. An energetic session may clarify what you are called to create at this time, and what the world most needs from you.

A Reiki or Healing Touch session may also help you realize that the most creative thing you can do is let go of the thought that anything even needs to be created. Maybe being able to fully relax into not-doing is what opens the door to your greatest creative flow and allows you to step into your greatest service for the planet.

Distance healing is powerful.

Distance Healing

The Healing Space

For the last 35 or so days, I have been sharing healing energy at a distance.

When Shelter-In-Place began, I was working with several clients with compromised immune systems, including two women near the end of their radiation/chemotherapy treatments.  They had been doing so well; I persuaded them to try a remote session so I could continue to energetically support them.

The distance healings proved to be very helpful. It was the beginning of a whole new learning curve for me in my healing practice.

Many of my regular clients are now working with me remotely. I also have new clients I have never met in person call me for a session. I could never have imagined this happening before the pandemic.

I have to admit that when I first started distance healings, it was not effortless on my part. It was one thing to do a distance healing once every two weeks or so, but to have my whole practice become nonlocal opened up a new level of energy. I had to learn to stay grounded in a new way. It has taken me a month to relax into it and fully enjoy these distance sessions.

At the start of the pandemic, I also emailed five of my clients who are also healers and wrote about how helpful distance healings could be for their clients. I explained the procedure I used and encouraged them to find the protocol that worked best in their practice. All five enthusiastically reported back about their results.

I have found that distance healings are just as effective as in-body treatments, I swear, sometimes they appear to be even more beneficial. They also take about ten minutes less time.

If you have taken a Healing Touch, Reiki, or any other healing class, try reaching out to friends and family to share a distance healing. Even meditating on the phone with another person is powerful.  If you pray, chant, sing or do yoga, dedicate the beautiful energy of your practice out into the world. Do not underestimate the power of your intention. You don’t have to be a professional healer to create great healing and balance internally and externally.

Stillness And Healing

Healing And Evolving Paradigms

In this last month, I would describe my experience of energy, of the collective consciousness, as both “thick” and “fast.”

“Thick” in a way that is not bad, or negative, or even emotional, just denser. There are times when walking from my bathroom to the kitchen feels so oddly exhausting. Doing little things like washing dishes or writing emails takes so much more time and focus. It sometimes feels like everything is deep underwater.

These “thick” experiences do not last for very long, yet I still feel slightly disoriented when I return to normal. Maybe that’s because normal also feels like such a continually evolving state of consciousness.

One morning several weeks ago, I woke up feeling the denseness, and I could not shake it off. Thank God I had a distance healing booked for myself that day with Laurie Ratto. That fifty minutes shifted everything. I felt fabulous for the rest of the day, and it was one of the most effective healings I have ever received. It was incredible how different I felt.

I am also experiencing the energy of sheltering in place as “fast.”  I started noticing this before the virus, but it is really amping up now. I have been doing one or two distance healings a day since we locked in place, and it is crazy how powerful these sessions have been.

I do distance healings as if my clients are lying on my massage table. I can feel the energy under my palms moving – fast and intensely. People are healing and rebalancing so quickly. It’s mind-boggling.

I have been doing distance healings for the last twenty-five years, yet only as a last resort, when my clients were in pain and could not get to my office. I knew distance healings were effective, yet the concept of remote healing is difficult to market; I used to find it challenging to ask for $150.00 for something people don’t think is real. I’m not finding it challenging now.

My paradigm of what is possible has certainly opened up. 🙂
