Energy Work- in the body and around it

Recently I was fortunate enough to receive a wonderful acupuncture session from Kathryn Gillet at Jade Spring in Comer, GA. The energy movement was incredible and I loved the way the energy moved synergistically through the different points while I rested. The session allowed me to further define what it is that I do. I believe that with reiki and the tuning forks I have learned a way to access the energy within the body through acupressure and acutuning. Working this area first allows me to create space for cleaning up the emotional house from the past. Once the body is clear, the client then is in a position to allow deeper work down in the energy field surrounding the body.
The area surrounding the body truly does hold information about how we learned to process or handle events and interpret them as a trauma or judge the feelings and create trauma. This is accessible through hearing the variation in vibration of the tuning forks or feeling the variation in the sensations of reiki “hibikis” or “areas of disruption” extending out from the body. The healing process is far more effective if we are able to tap into the earliest moment the pain or emotional injury was sustained and perceived as “bad.” Once we can hit that original frequency and heal it through suggesting a new narrative and story that empowers the client, then we can work together to free the past self from that painful moment and literally move forward in towards the body. It seems as though the emotional events pull at the charka that is associated with that emotion and dislocate it off to the side which is energetically exhausting.
Now the map of emotions and where they are stored off the body created by Eileen McKusick is pretty right on. I have discovered the right hip is also the area for self-berating and self-shaming. That eternally frustrating dialogue, “now why didn’t I do that?” and the “if only I had said this…” goes here and can flare up often. This is not just the hip of overdoing. How people store these emotions can be pretty unique as shame can literally pull on almost any chakra. So the goal with both methods is to realign the chakras so that the energetic vibration is lighter and elevated to allow for maximum efficiency and good energy.

Biofield Tuning with Reiki

Diving into Sound Therapy after learning Reiki was Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) therapy, I have found Biofield tuning to be particularly effective. The tuning forks are incredibly powerful and can truly clear and polish up the biofield so that a person can be super radiant. The movement of congestion from the biofield is significant which seems to correlate to the physical body deeply.  I have found that combining reiki with the biofield tuning is beneficial in assisting the body to process out the toxins that are released during session.  Just as deep tissue massage releases toxins, sound therapies do as well, almost more so.  We resist touch somewhat no matter how we attempt to relax our bodies.   Since there is minimal push back from the body when working with sound, it makes sense that the work is deeper.

In biofield tuning the term used is to “cohere” the biofield which is to allow the field to elevate the vibration to one that is coherent all over.  This follows the particle physics that everything is vibration. The negative emotions (I do not like to use that term but rather lower emotions-heavier and low vibration) have incoherence. This word comes from the heartmath experience that biofield tuner founder Eileen McKusaick had while receiving a reading from their equipment. I utilize reiki and acupressure which both affect the energy flow in the physical body and allow for better circulation and metabolism, so I recognize biofield tuning does the same, but in a different way.  The vibration of the tuning forks out in the biofield several feet from the body are able to identify stuck energies and move them using different tones of tuning forks.  This modality not only treats areas needing work, but also identifies the time period of the emotional trauma event in your life.  Then the energy field is cohered together for optimal flow which appears to release the toxins held in by that emotional event.

With reiki and acupressure the practitioner is not the one doing the work but rather the dula or catalyst to help propel the client to do the work.  This is the same for the Biofield Tuning.  It is a powerful way to truly lift the weight of emotional stress and identify the source moments in the timeline of life but the client must be willing to allow the movement and cohering to take place.  This healing method also supports the need to do the work and heal the traumatic moments in one’s life.  Cohering the inital moment of trauma releases one’s earlier self from the paralysis of the event so that it becomes a fact, no longer connected with emotional wounds.  But it is important for the recipient to do the work.  It is a combined effort.

The detox after the Biofield tuning to be significant and taking a few days to be tender with yourself, very needed.  After one day of nice Epsom salt baths and drinking plenty of water, I returned to my highly caffeinated work schedule under fluorescent lights and found it to be incredibly harsh and stressful.  This helped me to learn that my way of adapting to my busy office life at the ophthalmology practice must be reevaluated.  Plenty of water and hot green teas have allowed me to better manage my stress on a day to day basis, while also taking frequent outdoor breaks to relieve my head of the fluorescent light stress.  I believe having two days after a biofield tuning session to sit in nature and be calm would be super beneficial to help protect all the work that was done during session and allow these new energy patterns to become the new normal.

Since studying the Biofield Tuning book by Eileen McKusick, I have learned that the Biofield is likely a plasma energy field around us that has a flow to it just like the magnetic field around Earth.  It is a torus shape and the energy carries all the emotional information in a timeline like tree growth rings. The present is super close to our physical bodies while the past moves out so that the outer edge is birth and halfway in is half of the person’s age.  This is fascinating to experience. Yet again the key to healing is compassion for oneself and remembering to extend it to the memories of our younger selves seems to be the most trans-formative.  There is a silver-lining, some type of wisdom to be gained from each experience, and the work is in finding that bonus, seeing yourself with compassion in that moment, and truly feeling it.

When I perform a session, I tend to find the areas of disruption in a person’s energy close to their body and then feel it all the way to the edge of the disruption. There I have found I can do the most good, as I treat it with reiki and then bring the disruption in to the body and clear it.  This is how biofield tuning works, clearing the areas of disruption from the outer edge of the field but starting from the edge and then working in, whereas reiki starts in at the head and heart, and then moves out assessing areas of need.  I have found that relaxing the head and heart first with reiki really allows for deeper levels of compassion to be woven into one’s thoughts, heart, and body.

The Condition of Earth-how to help

My whole life has been a series of alarms and warnings of the state of the world and the environment.  Doom and fear rules the talk of the different new media and agencies.  All have an urgency to fix the broken global environment, but the focus of the summits are misplaced.  The Earth will continue with or without us.  The true entities needing healing are you and me.

Do not fall into despair at the state of the world.  This is a form of victim-hood and guilt mentality that allows you to surrender and fall into the abyss of fear and anger.  This helps nothing.  You are only at fault if you continue to allow the fear and doom to overtake you.  The role of victim-hood is a role filled with anger.  This gives away your power.  You are powerful and you have the ability to heal, not just yourself, but the world.   Do not give away your power, turn it inward and heal.

The more that I work with meditations and healing sessions, the more that I am aware of how we project our emotional conditions on the world around us.  The environment is a reflection of the people who live in that place and their state of mind.  Each town you visit has a different feel, each community has a different vibe.  Just as a home is a reflection of the people who live there, the town is a reflection of our inner state.  Are we self-centered and staring only into our phones?  Or do we look at others and smile and say hello?  These are very important differences.  Being in tune to others, including all creatures, helps us to create a harmonious community.  This harmonious “including”-see them and acknowledge them- is a higher vibration which can promote healing in every living thing around us as well as ourselves.

When we can turn that focus inward, we can do the work to include ourselves.  I have learned that there are pivotal moments in our lives when a trauma occurs, it will have lasting impacts if not healed.  We leave a piece of ourselves behind when that wound left untended.  The piece of us is trapped there until we go collect her.  Physics tells us time is circular, we just experience it in the linear.  The past is always with us, dragging behind us, the present pulls at our sides and the future is projected in front.  We do not have to experience the whole trauma again, we simply have to be brave, allow the emotions that are uncomfortable to happen, observe how that emotion affects our body.  Then we sit with that feeling and ask when was the first time this was experienced?  Go back to that moment and observe, and then you can correct that moment.   Validate her feelings, ask her what she needs.  You can provide that for her.  Because she is still there, your younger self, trapped in that moment, you can release her and bring her home.  This is deep healing.

The more we get in touch with our inner light, our “God” within, then the more we radiate respect and love into all creatures surrounding us.  As we do the work to collect ourselves we can be more present in the here and now.  The healing energy will radiate deep into the Earth and the effects will ripple outward.   Behaviors will change and relationships transform in how we treat each other and other living things.   It will be easier each day to find the beauty around us.  Everything radiates life and beauty, we just need to acknowledge it!  This is true alchemy.

To heal the environment, we must literally heal ourselves.  The work within will be reflected in the world surrounding us.  It’s the butterfly effect.   Healing yourself and radiating that light out into the world gives others permission to do the same.  It will actually encourage more healing and growth.  The person next to you may already be filled with energy and enthusiasm with the ability to help the environment on a more regional scale, and simply being near you in the healthy state will help their cause and lift them to do work at a bigger more regional level.  The path for them will be smooth since you have laid the ground work and evened out the more local bumps along the way.

The more light that we are shinning the more the Truth will surface, the more we will heal.  If you are ready and need only a guide to help channel the energy for change, a guide to help show you a way, then schedule a session with me for Reiki, Karuna Reiki® and Tuning forks session.  Tune up your body, mind, soul and heart.

Dare to heal.  Push yourself.  Schedule a session.  Do the work.

Why Anger and Fear Must be Transformed

Of the human feelings, fear is the most crippling.  It shrivels the heart rendering a person weak, decisions will not be good at this time.   Anger will burst forward many times to cover fear.  Fear can sneak in through small cracks in our soul left from childhood terrors.  We must be brave to look at emotional damage deeply and sit with it thus transforming the trigger from powerful sweeping emotions into simply feelings that wash over us.  This work may seem scary but the rewards are great.  You don’t have to go it alone.  Become the observer!  Learn how your emotions affect you.  Learn to watch you body.

The stronger the connection to our soul, the brighter our light will shine.  The more fear we have lingering in our past that has not been reviewed, massaged, softened, and brought into light, the more heavy weight we have holding us back from reaching our full potential.  Fear is rooted deep.  field

Imagine fear in picture form as a weed in your soul garden.   Each time you see it and recognize it, you brush it away leaving a clean garden bed.   But it returns, and every time you ignore it, the root still lingers and grows bigger, stronger and the fear blooms larger and more powerful each new shoot.  You must dig out the root, pull back the layers down through your childhood to the first experience of fear.   You must look inside and sit with the feelings that go with that fear.  Accept them as being part of the human experience, they are feelings that make your life richer, deeper and more beautiful because you can have compassion for someone else in a similar situation.   See your experience, feel your fear, and be ok with it.  Do not allow shame or judgement to speak inside of you. Love your younger self and validate how upsetting that moment and emotion was for baby you.  Ask her what she needs (to be hugged, defended, protected) and give that to her in that moment.  You are human, these feelings are part of being human.   Do not turn away from any part of yourself.

It takes time to work with these moments and when we are under periods of stress these experiences that we have rooted deep in fear will rear their ugly head.  If it is too much to face them alone, let’s do this together in guided meditation of the Karuna Reiki session with the benefit of tuning forks to weave in the new way of thinking.  Welcome all feelings in with the acceptance of being human.  Polish that dark heavy weight on your back, transform it to light and allow your soul to shine.  Love is the most powerful force of all.

The Vagel Nerve

Vagel nerve is a pivotal part of wellness for each one of us.  Spending too much time in a state of heightened awareness or readiness, is hard on the body.  Circulation to the stomach is decreased, breathing is shallow, Cortisol levels are high.  Blood sugars can be elevated, as well as blood pressure.  Digestion will be impaired, either too fast, too slow, or just plain gassy.  The link above provides a detailed list of all the body systems affected.  How wonderful to be able to activate and relax the vagel nerve in just a few minutes.  What if you could be taught how to do that?  How to relax and release all your worries in a moment…like a switch.

Someone who has a “Vagel response,” if you have ever heard that before, is typically a person whose Vagel nerve when under extreme stress will cause them to lose consciousness.  If a person like this sees blood, is under sudden stressful situations, or surprised, they may pass out.  One way to help counteract this response is to learn how to relax the body.  With training, people are able to have enough body awareness that they are able to drop in to that relaxed state fairly quickly.

With the first Reiki session I can teach  you body awareness and how your body should feel in a state of relaxation.  It is important to breathe deeply and totally relax your whole body at least once an hour throughout the day.  Several hundreds of years ago, we lived in smaller villages without electricity and electronics to speed up our chores and we lived each day in rhythm with the sun from gathering food from the land to preparing and storing food to eat.  The pace of life was steady and slower from moment to moment, and we had the ability to sink deep into our tasks in a quiet meditative state.  Our bodies could relax as our days slowed down with the setting of the sun.  Today we are able to live without so much as a glance at the sun, and work from sun up on through the night with little peace.

Using tuning forks and Reiki to help the body, we are able to relax the Vagel nerve which in turn relaxes the stomach for good digestion, the lungs for deeper breathing, the pancreas for good blood sugar, the muscles for deep rest.   Once the body can relax and be restful, your body is able to work on healing.

The first session shows the goal state of relaxation-this is the baseline.  The next session helps to reinforce and bring you there quickly.  Apparently Karuna Reiki® heals to heal on the Karmic level and weaves the work in at a cellular level.  I have witnesses incredible improvement lasting months after a session, so perhaps karmic cellular repair it is.  Each session is unique for your needs at that time, but each session workly deeply for weeks afterwards.  A few sessions can help teach you to bring yourself to the quiet place inside you in seconds.  If meditation has been elusive and unattainable for you, a Reiki session with sound healing can help.

The Power of Acupressure

As I began studying how to use the sound healing instruments to promote wellness in my clients, I learned about Crystal bowls, tuning forks, Himalayan Singing Bowls, chanting, toning and healing with musical stringed instruments.  I focused on tuning forks for their portability and power.  I was searching for an instrument I could use to help quickly focus people on their body and how it feels in order to reconnect them.  I love the sound healing of many instruments but after reading up on the Otto tuning forks, I saw how I could quickly demonstrate healing benefits to skeptics.

With the Otto 128, or Ohm, tuning fork, the vibrations quickly run through the body spreading warmth and relaxation.  Otto tuning forks are weighted on the fork end to push the vibrations down into the stem.   I read to place the tuning fork stem on the bones of the hips, chest, shoulders, and forehead.  I did and was quite impressed with the results each time.   I tried them on family, co-workers, and friends with great results.

Human Tuning: Sound Healing with Tuning Forks by John Beaulieu mentioned a few times the importance of learning the acupressure points.  The combination of the two healing modalities would accelerate total relaxation and opening of the bodies energy systems for wellness.   In simpler terms, the vibration of the tuning forks stimulate circulation and reduce inflammation.  Using the tuning forks on myself and family, I was able to duplicate the healing benefits.  Following his suggestion, I enrolled in an online course for acupressure.

After two months of classes, I learned the acupressure points on the shoulders, face, back, hips, legs and feet.  After practicing on many people, I have learning how powerful this healing art can be!  When combined with Reiki, acupressure is like a laser focus to target and relax area of stress in the body opening the door for Reiki to flow through and balance the whole body.  I have learned how to relieve my digestive issues with slow digestion and gall bladder congestion to the back pain from tight hips and the deep ache in my foot from tight quadriceps muscles.   Why not use the tuning fork on these points?

With simple light pressure on tender acupressure points from the resonating tuning forks, the tenderness dissipates in most cases and the meridian opens in seconds afterwards.  It works super fast in children as they are naturally more open.  This also helps them to trust me for doing some Reiki on certain unwell areas of the body.  Kids learn so fast and will point out sore places in their body with ease.  With adults I may need to apply the tuning fork twice.  This is huge step forward as holding acupressure points for 2-5 minutes to open them is taxing on the fingers, hands, and forearms.  The tuning forks help to open these point so fast.  It is amazing how much our bodies talk to us and we ignore them!

The more that I learn, the more I realize the deep ache in my foot is from a tightness in my hip, or that the sharp pain in my foot is from the gall bladder being blocked-nothing a quick application of the tuning fork can not help! It is truly an incredible healing art.  I strive to teach each client the points on their own body so they can continue the healing at home.

I have recently purchase the Otto 64 to balance the nervous system and the Otto 32 to help with lymphatic drainage.  These are a welcomed addition to the healing sound tools that I have at my disposal.  The other tuning forks are used to balance the body and integrate the higher energies of Reiki and sound into the energy field of the body.  This is incredibly powerful combinations of healing work.  I am super grateful to have been guided to learn all of these things and have friends and family willing to let me learn with them.

Great things have been brought to light during sessions the last few months.  The work utilizing both the Karuna Reiki®, Usui Reiki, Tuning forks, and chanting has been deep, profound, and wonderfully healing.  The transformations and breakthrough’s have been incredible and I feel truly blessed to have been a part of the process.   Release the heavy energy and transmute into light…


Relationships-another being

So much emphasis is on our life milestones, graduation, carrier, marriage, and pregnancy in our society, but very little focuses on the present moment of tending to our relationships.  It is so easy to focus on the goals and forget about the here and now.  But how we lose our connection with our family and friends is by looking always to the future, the next step, and forgetting to be in the moment with them right now.  What helps me, is to think of the relationship as another entity.

If I think of my relationship with my husband as a separate being, I can fully see what is missing.  I can see that I am focusing on our roommate issues when we are together thus neglecting time seeing him in a loving light.  We rarely have time together anymore without kids or jobs dancing in front of us pulling our attention, so what time we have I must tend to the relationship.  I sit with him and talk of life, or spend time playing, dancing, and singing together.   I must focus on seeing him and being grateful for the little moments, and we must see each other.  Making room for the relationship to blossom in your life is huge. Set aside time for roommate stuff later…if that time ever comes, because really does that matter? Play with your partner.


I love to look at the sculpture (see below) from the Burning Man festival this year.  This is truly what is happening when we are neglecting the soul of our relationship.  Our inner spirit wants to play and dance with our partners but somehow our grown up selves easily lose sight of what’s important, the heart of the relationship.  Same for the relationship with our children.

inner child

Growing up is scary.  As a child there is so much big world out there too busy to notice him.  As grown ups we have to teach kids boundaries for functioning in society outside of our homes, but also how to stay connected to their playful soul.  By focusing on spending a few minutes every day to play with them, draw, sing, dance, we are cultivating a love of life in them.  Our relationship with them is one of a teacher, and a friend.  Most importantly, we need to be sure that we are the center of the universe and they orbit us, the parents.

As parents our relationship deserves attention and is as important to the family as they are.  We must make time for our relationship because it came first.  Children must learn that they are second to our relationship as the parents, they do not get all time and attention.  They must share with mom and dad, from simply waiting for the grown-ups to finish talking to allowing the parents to direct after dinner rituals and a bedtime that makes room for parent alone time.  Stick to your word, do not waver.  Kids are comforted by the strength of their parents love for each other, especially in the moment to moment behaviors.  Being strong and consistent with rules and your word is key, always keeping in your mind’s eye the relationship that you have with them.  The relationship always needs tending, not just the child that you see.girls-462072_1920 (1)

Shine light on the heart of your relationships, acknowledge them and they will grow!
