Reiki Will Always Be My Go-To

When I began practicing Reiki full-time, I had no idea where this would lead me. With a giant leap of faith I quit my steady paycheck job of more than 17 years back in January of 2020. I had been trying to grow my own Reiki Energy-Healing practice while working part-time, and finally realized I would only get the energy back that I put into it. And with that, I leapt…

My journey with Reiki practice began with an Usui Reiki attunement in 2002. I was skeptical, but my mom had just had her twisted ankle healed by Reiki at a party a few months back and she was amazed by the results. I had a deep conflict between being very much needing physical proof while at the same time being captivated by the spiritual healings we studied in Anthropology. While auras, biofields, energy-bodies were talked about, I questioned that they were anything palpable, treatable, healable, or visible. So I went into the attunement with a curious but “prove it” attitude. And prove it she did…

After over a decade studying and learning more about the subtle-body through Reiki, with Sound, using energy meridians, different types of Energywork, I have learned to sense disruption in the biofield not only with tuning forks, but with intuition, Reiki, Quantum Healing and Angel guidance. I have tested what I was sensing and repeatedly found my intuition to be correct. My Reiki students have also been able to sense similar things. This has opened up a whole different aspect of the work as I have allowed for guidance to flow through me. My initial focus was on understanding how energy flows through the physical body and how to improve that flow. I focused on Tuning forks and Reiki to help clear blocks in the physical body. This is powerful but I realize I limited the energy flow in the past. All these methods can work on so many levels. The bigger energy perspective that allows big shifts is the aura level work. 

Now my focus is on Aura clearing at all levels. I can now check at every level and be sure everything that is healthy and gentle to clear has been accomplished. Using Reiki is lovely because it is gentle and powerful. After a full reiki session, I go back and check it with aura clearing and find it to be well healed in most cases. I still check both the chakra (aka major energy centers) flow well, and I also tune in to the meridians within the physical body and verify they are clear and flowing well. I have come to see how our energy should flow quickly like a waterfall which carried away the “blocks” and hard “energy” that can begin to block the flow and over time stack up and create a dam. Once this happens, fatigue, anxiety, stress, lack of focus will result.

Aura-focused work shows me how important it is for each client to do daily work for themselves to maintain it if possible. Even one day can cause someone to hold enough hard energy blocks to stack up and cause trouble. Sleeping will help repair this but if there’s enough perceived stress, sleep may be difficult. I include mini-lessons for my clients to continue to maintain their grounding if they are interested.

The key is to be sure to connect to the Earth and release stress out of the body. The key is to take time to breathe, expand awareness into the entire body and then connect to the Earth and release stress blocks down and out of the body. Being able to visualize it and guide the flow of energy is essential. This is why I am creating videos and a book of mini-lessons so that all my client can continue the work at home and practice! It’s so important, now more than ever. Please share these from my YouTube channel if it helps you. It’s time we all work together to help each other rise and be our best. Every day our best will look different and that’s ok too.

Reach out for a private session, using reiki or other methods, if you’d like additional help. Otherwise enjoy my mini-lessons. Much love. 

Reiki is Energy Medicine

Energy medicine is finally getting the attention that it deserves as a powerful catalyst for healing. Energy medicine includes any modality that helps someone to connect to and expand their subtle energy body. Energy medicine can be Reiki, Aura Healing, Healing Touch, Pranic Healing, Quantum Healing, the Reconnect, and Acupressure or Acupuncture. There is also Sound Therapy that helps to expand the energy body. Because so many people are raised believing all that they are is flesh and bones, they restrict their energy to fit inside that boundary. In reality we a huge energy beings that expand outside of the physical body several feet in every direction.

Our lifestyles are also so incredibly hectic causing our energy to cycle back on itself creating stress, inflammation, and anxiety loops. Many people live inside a box and rarely spend time outside. You can see the emphasis on larger and larger houses rather than larger yards. This disconnect with the frequency of the Earth and plants leads to eczema, allergies, auto-immune disorders, and more over time. We have forgotten how to ground release energy by connecting to the Earth.

Most people do not ever connect their energy body fully into their physical body except for during dancing, singing, or orgasm. It’s important to feel safe in one’s body most of the time rather than just a few minutes of the day. With guidance everyone can learn how to breathe and exhale releasing stress and tension from their physical bodies down into the Earth. This release allows their natural healing life energy to flow powerfully through their whole being once again. This is where energy medicine will empower everyone to heal and be healthy.

With a little practice before sessions and after sessions, I teach my clients to connect into their body and ground into the Earth, centering themselves with their awareness. Many highly sensitive people (HSP) or empaths are constantly focused on others feelings which causes them to ignore their own body. Once an HSP/empath learns to focus on their own body, they learn how to release stress, tension, and heal by staying fully present in their own body. This is how to release other people’s stuff.

Through practice, my clients gain the ability to reclaim their power with a quick exhale and release of feelings that they are holding. With this practice, healthy boundaries return. By paying more attention to feelings and breathing them out, each person can feel fully present, safe, and strong in their bodies. The energy shifts and becomes stronger as one learns how to check inside and trust ourself before agreeing to do something. This centering allows for better expression also. This is self love and is super powerful. A beautiful energy flow and large, balanced energy field is a result.

Holding emotions in is fairly common. Due to judging these emotions on some level as bad or painful, they are stored in the physical body typically in the spleen, pancreas, or liver. This leads to poor digestion and tight muscles in the surrounding area. This causes a buildup of lactic acid, carbon monoxide and other cellular waste that leads to pain and inflammation. How do we learn to stop holding?

First we need a reclassification of emotions from “bad or “painful” to the most basic of sensations, ex- exciting, calming, comfortable, or uncomfortable, then we are able to release judgement and observe our emotional reactions to situations and let them flow out. With Reiki, acupressure, Quantum Healing, biofield tuning, and other energy work modalities, we bring the focus back to the body, so clients feel a deep release. This release and flow of emotions is super healthy and is almost like a remembering of how we all naturally released stress as children. Over time trauma from judgement from family led to an unhealthy holding, not knowing when someone would yell or be angry. with the energy reset and reconnect, a grounding connection is reformed and the hard stress flows out of the body and energy field. This allows a body to function at a most efficient, flexible, and healing way.

Expanding Reiki Energy-work with Quantum Healing.

Have you ever wondered about this “energy” that people talk about? Have you watching Masked Singer and felt the most powerful performer give you goose bumps? Have you watched Dancing with the Stars and felt inspired watching? This is energy moving through them into you. These talented individuals are filled with love while doing these activities, and we feel it as observers.

This energy of love has a very powerful frequency, and other beings match it through entrainment. This process is similar to playing a piano and the sound wave causing the string on a guitar across the room to vibrate. The same thing happens with two grandfather clocks on two separate sides of the rooms, eventually they match the swing of the pendulum to each other.

Since we are made up of mostly water and we all have an electromagnetic field that radiates a frequency when we are happy, energized, or filled with love and excitement, it only makes sense that we can help each other using frequencies to heal our bodies. The thing about the electromagnetic fields though, is that is behaves like plasma (see Biofield tuning). What else behaves like a plasma?

Fire.

Fire dances and twists, turns and burns through most things as the fire grows stronger. Oxygen feeds the fire. This is how energy works in the body. With breathwork, energy moves quickly and more powerfully burning off blocks from emotional holding. Holding any emotion causes a block or a dam to stop the energy and stagnate within that area. This lead to a build up of lactic acid and carbon monoxide over time. This causes soreness, inflammation, and over time disease. With practice, one can learn to be aware of this energy field and help it grow strong and burn off any blocks and allow for good flow and prevent disease. All energy modalities involve some sort of movement of life energy, whether through breath work and movement in Thai Chi or Chi Gong, or having someone else channel high frequency energy to entrain the recipient through Reiki, Healing Touch, or Quantum Healing. Quantum healing is different because it combines the energy work like Reiki and Healing Touch with breath-work.

This amps up the frequency by Quantum leaps into a whole new realm of potential for healing. Every client has felt the energy almost immediately. To me it feels like a warm hug and then starts to move through the body in waves. I have witnessed powerful release of old injuries, traumas, and old ways of thinking over these last few weeks. It’s been really beautiful to watch clients relax deeply and allow their body’s to heal at a whole different level.

If you are ready to take your healing to a new level, reach out and try Quantum Healing! I am super excited to bring this new modality to my clients as I felt it provide a deeper level of reconnecting each one of us to our healing potential. There is powerful healing energy in everything around us and this really helps to provide that reconnection that we have all lost somewhere along the way.

If you are new to energy work, please reach out and book a session. Your body can heal, it just needs to reconnect and remember what that feels like!
I love working with all ages, children and adolescents can really benefit from this work, as do animals and plants. Reach out if you have a loved one who seems disconnected lately. This Quantum Healing can powerfully reconnect them. Book now.

Other Ways Energy Medicine Can Help You Reclaim Your Power

Powerful force in the fires of passion

You know how angry some people can make you feel? They seem to know exactly how to push your buttons with laser focus and precision. They can hone right in on things that make you rage and fire up in just a few words? Typically the people will be your siblings, lover, spouse, children, or best friend. They know what can really get you boiling and how to pull your strings. Pause just a second. Think about that saying,…they are literally pulling your strings.

What is helpful to realize, is when you are fiery mad and very passionate, your blood pressure gets super high, your adrenaline pumps through your body, and your heart beats super fast getting you ready for a fight. If you don’t run and burn off that adrenaline, then your body is stuck trying to manage the effects of all this fuel being amped up to power you through the fight. Your subtle energy body is tucked up into your center, typically in the solar plexus chakra. That person is literally pulling your strings, pushing your buttons, and controlling you, and you are letting them.

How do I know this? Because I was raised by Mr. Road-Rage himself. Oh yes, I would drive around completely offended that someone hit their brakes, flipped me off, cut me off, or made a face at me. My father tail-gated terribly and was the most aggressive driver, and I hated it. I finally found my voice at 18 and told him to pull over and let me walk the 2 hours home because I did not want to die today. Then guess what? I did that same exact thing…

Everyone on the road had power over me. The day I was a passenger and made a face at someone who was all ragey over us pulling into the center lane at an intersection when she was in the blind spot and trying to pull into the same lane, was the day I realized I needed to heal. She pulled a gun on us and chased us all over. I realized then that I needed to never get angry at another driver, never react with anger, and certainly never make a face . I could have gotten my friends killed as this woman let her anger drive her into rage and chase us through Atlanta. We finally escaped by pulling onto I-20 and racing off.

This was a huge turning point for me. No matter how bad I thought I had it fighting with traffic, there was certainly others who were far more fed up and at the edge of sanity. And they had a car and possibly a gun. This also changed the way I looked at my life. I could breathe, and calm down, and not take things personally and no longer be part of the problem. Who knows what someone was going through-I needed to show kindness. Reiki taught me this every time I practiced.

Overtime I learned to apply filter that to work relationships, patients, and finally family. With Reiki practice, I began to understands how much I hurt myself by staying angry or even allowing myself to get there. It was a slow transformation to make it all the way back to family, but it has changed my life. I no longer take anyone’s behavior or mood personally. I finally have been able to hang out with my father and not take his anger personally and instead ask him how he is hurting. This has helped him to realized how he is standing hurts his back or his feet and to take better care of himself in the moment. It took me years to get there, but it changed everything about our relationship. The last key to untangle my power from my motional family ties was Biofield Tuning. It literally tuned up my energy so I no longer had these walls up, so that I was no longer holding.

In these pandemic times of fear and isolation, this has helped me tremendously to navigate the dicey waters of social media. I do not take anyone’s comments personally, most of the time. In the beginning of the pandemic, I worked hard on social media to try and open up discussion and engage in intelligent debate. But things over time devolved into simply angry people who are hurting and everyone else being wrong. It has been very upsetting. I am learning discernment. There’s times to simply move past the discourse and say nothing. These times are tough but the most unifying, universal truth is love. I return to Reiki to rebalance myself along with chanting. So powerful good.

We all need to touch-base and connect with friends and family and reaffirm that we love each other. It’s super important to not allow emotions, politics, anger to divide us. Instead, when you start to notice your are beginning to feel angry, pause and instead consider it is your souls way of saying it is time to play. Enough is enough. No more work. Time to go play.

If you are having trouble making time for play, likely you need a tune-up. Reiki with Sound Therapy and/or Biofield Tuning may be just what you need. Call or email me to set up your session today. 706-207-4253 or healingwithangels77@gmail.com

Tortured No More- How Energy Work Helped Me

As a highly sensitive person, I have spent much of my life worrying what others think of me. It’s a super painful way to live because I feel others emotions so well. After years of pain, eczema and poor digestion, I have finally learned how to feel safe despite the intensity of all the emotions around me.

Ha ha, just kidding. Although there are certainly time I have wished for this crystaline armor to protect me from others, I learned how to power up my field and become literally this impermeable to others judgements and heavy emotions. Through the most powerful force in the universe….. LOVE.

Yes, that’s right. It’s free and universal to all creatures and from an unlimited source. Love, Love, Love. We all need it, we all want it, and guess what, we all are built, designed, and encoded with the ability to harness and amplify this one most powerful healing thing.

How do you start to tap into this a power up? Through self-love. Pure, unconditional, unadulterated, self-adoration, and awe at the amazing power your have in the very smallest particles of your being. You are amazing, powerful, and incredible. How do you do it? How do you walk, breathe, and play so well? Its truly a miracle we are even alive and the body systems all work if you think about it.

Self-love, that all? How easy right?

Well, no actually. I had to start in the very beginning with unwinding all the preconditions I had learned throughout my life that I had to meet to be loved. Perfect hair skin, clothes, body- nope. Meditate with reiki and breathe love into all those painful memories of judgement about my body, hair, clothes, breathe love into those awkward times when I felt everyone was looking at me and judging me.

Guess what some probably were, but their opinion is not important. I can never be loved by everyone-breathe and radiate reiki into those lessons forward and backwards. I can never please everyone. I have to learn to be myself 100% and please myself, then I can help others without hurting. This article on “The Art of Not Giving a Shit” (yes, I googled that) helped me so much the last few days. Please read this link. SO helpful. Some people will hate me for being too friendly, some will hate for being too sunny, but that’s ok because as long as I am loved by me, then I can be ok without their approval- Reiki all over that and release with breath and energy work.

Guess what, the more I unwind all these limiting beliefs, the more I unkink the flow of the most abundant resource of all of the universe- LOVE. This has taken me years. It has been hard but so helpful. The more I dig in, the more opens for me. And then everything else that I wish to create falls into place.

Did I do this over night? Of coarse not. I have had several teacher, mentors, and I still have them now despite being one myself. You know why? Because I am human and as a human I will fall down into the same hole of anger or fear, until I have learned the lesson in every way possible. These holes though, they get smaller, and what energy work has taught me, is how to see that hole sooner, side step it, or recognize when I have one foot in it, so I may back up and not fall all the way in. You can do it too! Set up appointment with me today. You deserve it.

Navigating the Inner Landscape with Reiki and Energy Medicine

The last few months of this pandemic world has created an opportunity for me to dig in an heal my old patterns. A few of my old fears rear their ugly head when stressful life situations come my way. I know myself thankfully after years of sitting with my emotions and making space to witness them, and so I could tell I was spinning out. Time to dig in and make space for healing.

My trigger is financial hardship and my response is to get angry. So there’s been a good bit of that around the house which is my clue to get some alone time outside.

While sitting in the yard doing breath work and imagining myself floating like the wind through the leaves on the trees I understood I was hurting myself by working too much. I had been focused on researching grants/ loans and department of labor rules. I had been pushing myself too much. Time for me to pause and let go of the illusion of control. It was time for me to float on the river and practice being a leaf on the water; the swell was here. There’s nothing I could do about it but simply be.

Unwinding that spring of fear around money is an ongoing process, but I have simply learned to pace myself and pause when I am starting to feel angry, annoyed, or frustrated. I am doing reiki and acupressure to rebalance the energy and unkink the blocks that come from stress and create anxiety. That allows me to get in touch with my physical body and reconnect my awareness allowing the flow to return and rebalance my emotions. Then I am able to feel that reconnection through my feet to the Earth. The emotions and stress now flow out into the Earth and she nourishes me in return. There’s literally nothing else to be done but go outside and chose to enjoy the beautiful life around me.

This is a process of forgetting and relearning every few weeks of this pandemic, but what a great time for me to push against the growth edge and learn a new lesson completely with lots of practice. Truly as long as I have the ability to feel amazement at our gorgeous world filled with life, I can feel we have enough.

Following the Reiki Principals

The ocean just wipes away stress and I feel so free in the wind and the waves.

Along with learning to connect and channel Reiki energy with an attunement, we also learn the Reiki precepts. These guidelines provide an ideal way to live one’s life in order to be the beacon of universal life energy from the heavens. These ideals provide a goal for the way to be walking with love and compassion. These precepts have given me so much to work on for the last 20 years. The precepts are as follows:

Just for today, do not worry
Just for today, do not anger
Just for today, do your best
Just for today, be grateful
Just for today, be kind to every living thing.

Simple enough, but oh so challenging. The key to being able to walk fully in all of these practices has been to take time to breathe deep and quiet my mind. Then in that space I am able to allow my body to release all the stress and emotions I have been holding. Meditation was impossible for me until Reiki. This practice has truly changed my life from one of surviving to one of thriving!

Just for today, is super helpful for me as it takes away the pressure of having to live up to this all the time. Since this is just for today, it feels very doable. I love that each one starts with what I feel is essentially saying, focus on right now.

Do not worry. This precept is easier some day more than others. I truly have come to realize, as long as I am taking time to breathe deep and take time for me a few times throughout the day, then this is possible.
Thoughts can be my biggest enemy, but instead of fighting them I have learned to see the worry as a clue it is time to be peaceful and take time to relax. Do not worry, but instead do.

Trying to control anger did not work. I had to view anger as a baby to be tended to.

Do not anger, has literally been my most challenging practice. The hardest part was to see how I was hurting and tend to that on my own. I learned to accept responsibility for my emotions and then talk to others after I had determined the root cause.

One book that helped me tremendously was ANGER by Thich Naht Hanh. This book describes the importance of personifying anger and seeing Anger as a baby. I had to learn to tend to the baby, and take it for a walk until it calmed down.

Next I learned to dig in and examine what was the hurt underneath. This skill is super empowering. No longer was I victim of my emotions or what someone “made me feel.” This simple precept took me years to master. And now that I have, I want everyone to know how important and powerful this is!

This technique of tending to Anger is a key step in Reclaiming your Power. You have the power over how you react to situations. You have the power to tend to you emotions and love them all as a part of you. This is self-love.

Once you have mastered the concept, the next step is to practice and feel it. Set up a session with me to learn or remember how to Reclaim your power through self love. Email healingwithangels77@gmail.com to set up time for self work.❤️
