Have you ever been stuck, like really stuck? Replaying a scene of an argument or breakup over and over again in your mind? These are emotional traps that form when we are children as a way to keep us from understanding the power within. I have wasted so many hours stuck in the same story for much of life. One of my story stuckness revolved around shame, my personal theme: Body-shaming.
Emotion Traps Discovered
As a young adult, I hit a point when I was reading my journals, reviewing my life, when I realized so much of it focused on shame of my weight and body size. I suddenly decided I didn’t want to focus on that anymore, I wanted to let go of the anguish I felt thinking about it. Like a switch flipped, I moved on to focus on other things. There was so much more to life now that that theme was gone from my storyline. I cleared part of the emotional trap of body shame. This was the beginning of my understanding of Emotion Traps.
This didn’t mean that I was immune to shame, no it still hurt when I heard fat shaming and other body judgements. I took that hurt and judged others but in reverse. What helped tremendously was the day I realized that some skinny people wished they could gain curves. I stopped reverse body shaming in that moment. A softening occurred in my heart as I learned there was no way to know what emotional traps surrounded others. This opened the door to compassion and curiosity about where others experienced shame and their own emotional stuckness.
With Reiki practice in my life, I began to notice areas of dense energy tended to be around the hips and shoulders way out in the energy field of each client. They would have certain hot spots near the different chakras where my hands would light up which appeared to tie in to different emotions. My first Biofield Tuning Session I received, revealed a tremendous amount of stuck shame from my childhood. This release gave me great insight into the potential for healing using Sound and Reiki to help move out these areas of dense energy storage, these Emotion Traps.
Experimenting with Clearing Emotion Traps
With Biofield Tuning training, I learned a map for these stuck emotions. Incorporating this map with both Reiki and Biofield Tuning helping clients identify and release the stuck emotions. Using Reiki, Chanting, Tuning Forks, these areas would clear and release physical body pain or heaviness. Clients would experience relief from old injuries, stuckness, and digestive trouble. Emotion Traps are the best name for these areas. Emotion Traps helps me better understand what, why, and how I keep seeing this pattern.
Understanding more with practice, I found that helping clients to participate in the release allows for a thorough healing that lasts longer. Using Holy Fire Reiki has helped as the energy has such a flame-like quality, dense energy simply melts away. I also ask clients questions about the size and shape of the dense energy. When they visualize it, they are able to more thoroughly let it go. We are each our own best healer I remember over and over again.
Merkabah Pattern Revealed By My College Roommate
Recently, I became super focused on these larger pockets of dense energy further out in the field. I keep finding them in the areas about 5 feet from the shoulder & hip on the right-divine masculine energy and left side- divine feminine. With meditation I asked for more guidance regarding these areas. What do they represent and how do I help clients release these more thoroughly?
Using Reiki, chanting, toning, and tuning forks to activate and clear these dense energy areas, I found clients were experiencing exponential clearing, lightening, and healing. This technique was repeatable, but I wasn’t quite sure exactly what I was doing until I saw a Biofield Tuning course on Digesting Emotions. Eileen called these dense areas Emotion Traps. What a perfect name. It is not my fault that I get stuck in certain emotions over and over again. My responsibility is to clear these areas from myself. From this place of growth i will teach others. My focus shifted to reminding everyone how to digest their emotions with kindness and energy for optimal health. I felt I was close to the target but still missing a part of the picture.
My path led me to visit with my friend Gretchen in Bellingham Washington. We met back before college on orientation to Young Harris College and decided to be roommates. Gretchen taught me so much about deep feeling and intuition. My left brain wasn’t fully ready to embrace all she was bringing into my awareness, but the door was opened. This visit she showed me her paintings about awakening and spiritual portals and healing. I saw clearly the pattern that I was working in my clients in one she painted with the merkabah in 3 dimensions. She had some paintings that accurately showed energy patterns of healing I see during sessions. This unlocked more understanding.
Sacred Geometry with Reiki Repair Aura
My eyelids have been flaring up with allergic dermatitis and eczema over the last several years, but none as bad as this year. Gretchen has been tending to her own organic farm and created her own skincare line. She gave me some soap and facial oil to help my skin. Her facial oil has been the only thing that gives my skin lasting moisture all day without any irritation. Check out her skincare here. So here we are 25 years later finally having a complete alignment despite living on opposite side of the country with a kids and careers in between.
Once I returned home I researched the merkabah. I recognized how the form fit over a person and could help establish a structure for their aura to stop collapsing. Activating the points on the merkabah at the emotion trap areas creates a flow structure, like a crystalline grid within our aura. Emotions no longer trap dense energy and accumulate stuckness that shrink the aura and keep physical bodies from healing. I now work these points on myself and my eyelids clear up. I’m so grateful for leaning in to synchronicities.
This has been a powerful pattern to work towards the end of the session once the body stress is cleared. The energy link up is guided by their higher self and my higher self at the highest frequency healing that is able to flow through. This discovery is so exciting! It’s showing up in several healing modalities at once, so I know that NOW is the time. Sacred Geometry applied to Reiki and Sound Healing is the way to help maintain a wide aura that is flowing continuously. This flow is the KEY!

Many meditations are guiding me back to plant medicine as the link to helping my body adapt to the unhelpful stuff in our food and water supply. I have shifted into taking my filtered well water and then infusing fresh herbs like lemon balm or mint in the water. This has been lovely to reconnect with the energy of each herb. Lemon Balm is my favorite right now. It’s like drinking sunshine. This has guided me to dig deeper into supporting my body with plant medicine.
Telling doctors for years that everyone in my family has thyroid issues wasn’t enough to get blood work to show anything. Apparently things still must go crazy sideways for Allopathic Medicine to register anything. Then it’s pharmaceuticals or surgery solutions so I have turned to connecting with myself for further guidance…
Reiki to the Rescue
Thanks to Reiki for healing inflammation, clearing trauma, and healing stress, nervous system and Vagus nerve. Emotional shifts and energy shifts have really done a tremendous amount for healing me. I no longer blame myself for feeling sad, tired, resentment, grief or anger. It is simply an indicator that I am working too hard. If I am unable to reset in a pause then there’s some inflammation in my gut. So I do Reiki to heal that.
Daily Reiki helped me identify so much in my body. I was spending hours each day doing Reiki on my right lower side (ileosecal valve entered my awareness thanks to LeeAnne Cordell). The awareness clued me in that I should avoid dairy for sure, popcorn (real tears here), nuts, seeds, & raspberries during a flare up of irritation. Do you ever feel an ache in the lower right side of your abdomen? Maybe there is some need for deeper attention here?
With lots of Reiki in this area and gentle-pressure massage to tone the valve area, I felt a release through my throat and ear on the right side. Energetically this part of the digestive tract was connected to the energy flow through my tonsils, and sore throats (and dust allergy oddly enough.) I found the digestion pathway was still irritated if I didn’t eat perfectly. That meant it was not fully healed.
**Side note: apparently the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Spain all have many practitioners helping people to manage this issue. There are many YouTube videos from around the world on how to heal your ileosecal valve. Here in the US I had so much digestive trouble after a miscarriage that I had a scope done to be sure that area of irritation wasn’t something terrible. All the doctor said was that it looked slightly irritated, so I should avoid the foods that bothered me…otherwise I was healthy…
Release with Fasting
Pulling wisdom from Resetters Podcast has been tremendous. Her focus is the same as mine: Our Bodies Can Heal! Her goal is to teach people intermittent fasting so that the organs can release and clear out the stress hormones allowing them to access regular hormones again. This has been helpful so I simply skip breakfast and drink black coffee before eating/drinking a plant heavy lunch and healthy dinner.
Vitamin D is Important
Then eczema flared up and I saw more irritation that happens every end of August, so I dug deeper. I listened to my guidance that Energywork & fasting isn’t enough, that my body needed more help. I really thought doing all of the above I would have enough Vitamin D with all the yard work and outdoor time this summer for the season change clearly not so. Back to magnesium glycerinate and vitamin D supplementation. So I’m returning to Magnesium Glycinate and Vitamin D3 at 10,000 IU’s daily now.
Vitamin D is actually a hormone so the body cannot convert the supplement to usable from without the proper minerals in place to support that conversion. With the podcast I learned that what used to be considered good vitamin D blood level of 25 went up to 30 about 10 years ago. Then from patients with any Auto-immune disorder I learned their rheumatologist wanted a minimum of 40. This Functional Medicine Doctor who is focused on thyroid health says minimum is 60 in a healthy person and 70 if any sign or symptom of auto-immune disorder presents… Wow! I was worried I would overdo the Vitamin D, but I once with constant supplementation measured at 50.
Minerals Are Essential
Magnesium Glycinate is super important for the body to utilize/make vitamin D as it’s really a hormone too! I had given it all to Ava to help her seizure disorder and forgot to order more the last few months. Black coffee, sugar and stress all burn up the magnesium quickly so it’s likely I was deficient. Shifting things in the family to be ready to care for my parents as needed has been tough balancing business and family. A Resetters Podcast on Mineral deficiency raised my awareness to Zinc. So I threw in the Zinc I had left from my COVID immune system stock up. All three daily for a full month made a difference.
The flare up on my eyelids is really the most difficult to manage. Once the skin gets dry enough and the itching sets in the inflammation cycle has really taken over. Again plant medicine to the rescue: Summer Salve healed that in two days thanks to Maiden Camp for Ava a few years ago with Angela Burgess and the Wise Women teachers.
Plant Medicine Adaptogens
Have you heard about Adaptogens yet? They help the support the body in releasing the stress hormone cycle and flush out the stress hormone cortisol while helping the body to actually use the hormones that are there. This is very important as I learned while I may show in blood work that I have hormones, it is possible that the stress is throwing the receptors off. The receptor need to grab the hormones and convert them into the usable form the body needs for function. There are herbal and mushroom adaptogens to help you deal with stress. What magical plants, am I right?
The reason I chose Ashwaganda as my adaptogen (thanks to Step-dad Bill for sending me)was this article linking thyroid healing with Ashwaganda. I researched things to help my mom with her memory and anxiety struggles, and recommended they start daily supplementing with it. It’s been shown to help stop memory loss and improve brain function in several studies. Ashwaganda twice daily came up as a powerful way to help support the body to heal. There was also some good info on the brain healing benefits of Lion’s Mane mushrooms. Hello healing plants!
Endocrine Disruptors Equal Inflammation
Understanding that no matter who we are, there is wide-spread infiltration of both food and water supply with toxins that are endorcrine/ amino acid disruptors. The Round-Up is in every animal eating corn which produces all the dairy, eggs, meats for us. The pesticide was orignially approved through the FDA for use as an antibiotic. We all know what kind of trouble we get into if we have to be on antibiotics for more than 7-10days… Now it is in everything. Think about how it is used as desiccants too. Dry wheat, barley, amaranth is way easier to collect than fresh. This combination of disruptors at the cellular level are a recipe for inflammation and trouble.
These toxins are destroying so many pathways in our bodies, and the plastics have broken down over the last 60 years to show up in all creatures and plants of the Earth. Hormonal disruption is far worse for women than men as doctors typically don’t listen to female complaints of pain or discomfort- at this point at don’t blame them as we are about 45 yrs into constant glyphosate exposure. So many have whacked hormones and gut health so it’s normal for women to have pain, irregular menses, inflammation, or depression.
Glyphosate literally blocks your normal amino acid cycle of energy production in the cells. Then we begin struggling as different adrenal hormones kick in to power the cells, which blocks other hormones and the cascade effect begins as other hormone pathways derail. Even plastics have leeched into almost every waterway; we have been hearing about their endocrine disruption for years.
From depression to chronic fatigue to PCOS, women have to really have tremendous challenges to finding good health. All of these illnesses have inflammation at its root. Women are especially challenged to have good nutrition to prevent inflammation as menses and childbearing are incredibly nutrient demanding.
But men are having challenges too. How many are suffering from depression themselves? How many have anxiety? How many from IBS? Other inflammatory issues? How many suffer from exhaustion?
Detox the Body with Plants and Minerals
Things that are working for me:
Ashwaganda twice daily, Turkey Tail once, and Geranium Essential Oil topically over my liver when I remember. Geranium Essential Oil helps teach the liver the frequency of release. Magnesium Glycinate if I drink coffee in the morning, and then again at night with the Vitamin D3. I also have added some Zinc (thanks to Resetters Podcast) which seems to help everything else flow better. Spirulina, wild blueberry, and banana or avocado smoothies with water for my break-fast and avoid dairy. (I started with taking Turkey tail mushrooms after the Costa Rica trip thanks to Kris May.)
Glycine Amino acid powder is also on my list (thanks Resetters Podcast.) This Amino Acid pushes glyphosphate out of my cells so that Glycine can get back into the energy amino acid chain at the cellular level for energy. Glycine is cheap and just mixes in water to make a nice before bed way to detox Glyphosphate (notes below for study). It helps with better sleep too. (So does Reishi mushroom!)
Reiki Helps Glandular Function
Despite all of this added nutrition, I still do daily Reiki and energy flow work to make sure that I am not holding emotional stress or inflammation anywhere. Reiki works by showing me where there is slow or sluggish energy. I am able to help that move out and reharmonize the flow throughout all the main chakra centers. Each chakra center is connected to a gland. Good flow through the entire energetic core means that everything is working well together.
Many different metaphysical books mention the importance of calcium for energy workers. Apparently we burn through this mineral quickly doing this higher frequency energy work. This wisdom is what I find when I ask to be guided to things that heal me. I just happen to pick up the right book and turn to the right page. Carrot juice has been quenching my thirst too. I picked up another book and read that carrot juice is rich in bio-available calcium. Connecting to this wisdom is so important.
Healing through Research
Healing takes money and most health insurance covers nothing that’s for healing. It’s all about the “treating sickness”model. When there’s so much profit in sickness and testing it, where’s the motivation to learn/teach wellness and healing? That is why it is so important that we each take control of our journey to healing. You must heal you. Learn to hear yourself and listen to your inner guidance.
So I wanted to share this exciting step in my journey in case it may help someone else who is struggling. I feel like I have a new key to health. I am going to shift a few things and see exactly what I need to keep doing and what I can slack on a bit in about 2 months. I feel like the 90 day point is the key to supporting the body to handle the repair.
Which leads me into my next step, teaching people to access their energy flow to see where their bodies are holding stress. This stress may show up in many different ways. It’s a powerful tool for managing stress whether emotional, environmental, or systemic. Everyone can learn to shift into flow to release emotions and tap into the root of how to heal! I’m working on making a booklet and video course complete with pictures for drawing and meditating into healing. 🌟💖💙💜🌈🦋🌅 Stay tuned!
“Glycine is the smallest non-essential, neutral and metabolically inert amino acid, with a carbon atom bound to two hydrogen atoms, and to an amino and a carboxyl group. This amino acid is an essential substrate for the synthesis of several biologically important biomolecules and compounds. It participates in the synthesis of proteins, of the tripeptide glutathione and in detoxification reactions. It has a broad spectrum of anti-inflammatory, cytoprotective and immunomodulatory properties. To exert its actions, glycine binds to different receptors. The GlyR anion channel is the most studied receptor for glycine. However, there are GlyR-independent mechanisms for glycine cytoprotection and other possible binding molecules of glycine are the NMDA receptor and receptors GlyT1 and GlyT2. Although, in humans, the normal serum level of glycine is approximately 300 μM, increasing glycine intake can lead to blood levels of more than 900 μM that increase its benefic actions without having harmful side effects. The herbal pesticide glyphosate might disrupt glycine homeostasis. Many in vitro studies involving different cell types have demonstrated beneficial effects of the addition of glycine. Glycine also improved conditions of isolated perfused or stored organs. In vivo studies in experimental animals have also tested glycine as a protector molecule and some studies on the beneficial effects of glycine after its clinical application have been done.”
Let’s embrace negativity for a minute. That’s right, stare right at it and dig in a little deeper. There’s so much out there about being positive that I got swept up in eradicating negativity. Staying in the flow with Reiki, I erroneously thought I had to push away all negative thoughts, did you?
For a while, I made it my personal job to strap on my backpack of positivity spray and blast out all the negativity out from myself and others to keep everything shiny and clean. Rather than reach my goal of becoming a beacon of positivity, I found myself hyperfocused on exterminating any negativity or sadness. Rather than sitting with my anger, I pushed it away. My poor friends and family as I passionately preached about storm clouds and sunshine, while ignoring my own full-spectrum of emotions. For years I focused on fighting anger and rejecting outbursts from anyone.
My determination to “get rid of negativity” became judgmental in my push for perfection. Once I made time to pause, as the stress of COVID increased, I realized there was no way to push through these heavy emotions. So I learned to pause in that moment and instead allow myself to become the observer. I learned to sit with it and instead watch the flow of thoughts and emotions in order to learn what was underneath. In the darker depths of the flow.
Reiki Principals to the Rescue
In this forced quiet, where I could no longer talk about staying in playfulness without having my head bit off, I learned the power of silence. I came back to the Reiki Principle- be kind to all living things. To apply this I have to forgive myself for being angry and engaging in conflict. I was hurting, just in a different way from those around me. I needed to sit in my waves of sadness, anger, and frustration, alone and find the calm floating on the waves.
There’s a parable that resonates with me which tells of a young boy and his grandfather. The young boy is struggling with dark impulses. His grandfather tells him that inside each person is a wolf of light and a wolf of dark. The one that wins is the one that the young boy chose to feed. There was an Aha- moment. He didn’t say, kill the wolf of the dark” did he? He said choose which one you feed.
My conflicts were tests for me to apply my “wisdom” and be compassionate. So compassion is what I gave myself, and in allowing myself to pause, I found grace and peace. I could not rush myself or anyone else to hurry through their suffering. I could not rush myself or anyone to see that they were in charge of their experience. I could not rush myself or anyone to see that we all have the wisdom within us when we make time to get quiet. I had to simply get quiet, find my inner calm, and wait out the storm.
As I dove deeper into my Reiki practice, I learned it’s actually about softening and embracing ALL emotions. Feelings are simply indicators of different levels of stress and emotional holding. With energy healing work I learned it’s not the power of positivity but rather the power of love that heals. So dig into negativity…sit with it… deep belly breath and exhale… why am I feeling this way? Then just wait for answer to come… That is the key.
Here’s another Reiki principal:
Be honest and clear. I must learn to face every part of the person in the mirror with love. That’s the most important thing. I no longer reject my negativity, it’s simply my clue to pause, breathe, and go outside to look up at the beauty. Go enjoy the trees, birds, and hum of nature. Go out and realign my energy flow. When I get frustrated or irritated, that’s my stress valve needing a release and nothing more… Being angry, sad, frustrated, resentful does not mean have I have less value, it simply means I need to pause and release, reconnect, and restore my flow.
Energy Balancing with Reiki and Breath-work
By embracing ALL emotions, I am now being honest. I no longer try to censor my Bad Mood. Instead, I see her and pause, and then I ask myself how I am hurting. Negativity has become my inner barometer of unintentionally allowing stress to build and boil into a storm. It’s my clue to go outside and ground with a reiki meditation. I breathe deep into my belly as I expand my awareness up and out , then exhale while releasing down into the Earth. All my stress can then flow out into the Earth and be recycled. I’m so grateful to my reiki practice to know how that feels.

This past few weeks I upgraded to the Holy Fire III® Reiki frequency for my Karuna® Reiki Sessions and what a difference! The energy from the Holy Fire symbol is intensely hot which really helps clients and myself to bring awareness to different parts and layers of the body where there is tightness. The heat of the energy grows as the flow intensifies and then it moves stuck energy or emotions far faster than ever before. I will say Holy Fire energy seems to melt the hard energy blocks quickly. This energy is a powerful level up for the Love energy for healing.
HOLY FIRE heals all over
With Holy Fire Reiki meets each person where they are and helps for an all over energy shift. This doesn’t focus in on one part of the person but rather addresses the whole person. The whole includes all their layers of growth on energetic and spiritual layers. I haven’t seen it push anyone past where they should be causing any type of discomfort in the client later. I have seen that with many different modalities, but not with Holy Fire III® Reiki. This seems to encompass the whole person so that the is far less resistance. I am amazed as the possibilities for release both on soul trauma levels and ancestral trauma levels.
My personal experience with Holy Fire III® Reiki has allowed me to expand my awareness of my grounding and being a channel of the energy while my hands, eyes, and voice are like conduits that help connect them to the high frequency state of being. This has really helped me to recognize when I am interfering with the flow and shift and correct my posture and then allow for their higher self to guide their experience. The less I direct, the better the flow. How lovely is that?
Reiki Healing Qualitites
Regarding the healing qualities, I remember working on a soft tissue injury like a twisted ankle and it would take about 30 minutes of reiki treatment for the injury to heal with level I&II. When I received the Master level it would take about 10-15 minutes. Then with Karuna Reiki within 7 minutes a twisted ankle would be resolved. Now with the Holy Fire III® Reiki energy I am seeing shifts within minutes. My old deep burn (I neglected to take time to treat immediately upon receiving the injury) that was just scabbing over healed up within a day. It amazing and I cant wait to see what happens next!
Currently, I am working on expanding my energy shift at all levels before I teach a class with this energy. It has been three weeks since my upgrade, and I have led many circles to have Holy Fire III® Reiki experiences. How lovely that have been for all of us. I am excited to continue expanding my spiritual and energetic growth for benefit of my clients and family. These are exciting times!
Reach out and book your session today to treat yourself and enter a deep healing space and remember who you truly are: a powerful huge energy being. Release your heavy energy, Reconnect your energy body, Restore your healing power within.
After practicing Reiki for many years, I love to point out to all of my students how deeply healing the class is for each of them. The attunements that we go through during class allow for heavy, stuck energy to fall away. This enables the energy body to flow into a more elevated and harmonious frequency for optimal wellness. While learning the history of Reiki is important for reverence, the technique and foundation for proper practice is essential.
Reiki classes are a healing
With Reiki, staying open and being grounded is the key to good flow. I like to imagine that I am like a waterfall, tapping into the higher frequencies of the heavens above and allowing it to flow all the way down through my body out into the earth. My hands are just simply that connector that provides that connection of elevated frequency to my clients. I can also use my eyes to channel Reiki as well as my voice as I chant and sing with focus on the person for whom I am holding space for a deep release and healing. I teach all of these practices in class.
During class, not only does a student learn about the practice of Reiki, but each student also has an opportunity to dig deep into self awareness. The goal is to learn how to walk with love and compassion to allow for the deep wisdom and grace to flow through and ripple outward. The more I practice Reiki the more I learn the importance of identifying where I am on my path and respecting others journey as their own.
As a Reiki teacher, I strive to be always learning more to help each person in a way that makes sense to them. Each student will gain more clarity the more they practice. This is the foundation of a Reiki practice, daily self-treatments to have more insight into the inner way of being. The more we practice, the more we are present, the more clarity we have. This is the way of Reiki.
The key to healing the subconscious and reprogram how I react to situations is by visualizing healing myself. While in a deeply meditative Reiki state, I make sure Reiki flows through my entire being starting with hara centering. If I am unable to sense a nice flow through that area I will go through a Reiki self-treatment starting at the root chakra, just below the tailbone, then moving up after I sense the flow.
Next I move up to the hara center point which is the Tan den (aka dantien) 2” below and behind the bellybutton. Once I can feel an expansive flow of Reiki, I move out to the hips and be sure that the flow moves out from the center point. The 3rd chakra receives some love next. I pause here at the base of the sternum until I can sense flow out the front and back of the chakra. I love to imagine a powerful yellow geyser of light out in front as well as behind me. Once the back feels flowing, I draw in healthy energy from behind me. 🌟
The 4th chakra or the heart-center is my next area of focus. I love to stay here and make sure it expand both out the front and the back and then scan to be sure the entire aura at all the layers are nice and flowing. Then the 5th Throat chakra receives a good Reiki Session. I check the way out to the sides of the aura here as well for good flow and release of heavy slow energy that may be stacking up causing neck and shoulder pain. After this is the 6th or third eye. Again here I will check front and back with scanning to be sure there is good flow and around to the sides especially. Here I will sit to be sure I sense good flow to both the throat and entire head for best connection to intuition and my guides.
Finally I bring my awareness to the entire crown and check for flow up and out the back of the head and center crown and sides to the front. Once this has been completed I am able to work on others. This is essential to start the day so that stress or emotions do not get stuck and begin to stack up causing pain or aches.
In class we cover the importance of all these things. I highly encourage each student to carve out time daily for self-care with Reiki self-treatment because it’s the best way to get to know oneself and stay on the path to healing through self-awareness. Level I continues to awaken senses until 21 days out. Level II attunement does the same. Practice continues to deepen that healing and is very essential to the heart of Reiki practice.
There is so much covered in class I do recommend each student make time to come out to Reiki Circles and practice. This time offers so much learning and support for everyone, especially me. 💖🦋🌸 If you are ready to begin your inner journey, reach out!
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.
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 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.
When I first began my journey into Reiki and Energy work, I was really skeptical. All I knew was that my mother’s ankle had been healed after a bad sprain by someone doing Reiki on her at a party. I was fascinated. Little did I know that Reiki was really learning how to be a channel of love and compassion and this is what heals.
As the years have gone by and I teach more and more classes, I remember the beginning by watching my students. Feeling a bit of doubt, but feeling certain about the sensation of Reiki during the class. Self-treatment sessions are recommended daily. At first I just worked on injuries and neglected self-treatments, curious how Reiki worked. But as years went on I began to understand why self-treatments were so important.
The key to allowing deep flow for self-practice is love. Being able to generate feelings of love is a huge part of being able to channel Reiki. I have no trouble feeling love and compassion for others, but have trouble doing so for myself. By doing daily self-treatments, I have to carve out 15-45 minutes to just listen to my body and learn where I am holding tightness, pain, and emotions. And yes, despite having practiced Reiki for many years, I still hold onto stress and emotions. Remembering and understanding why daily self-treatments are recommended has been a game changer for me through this pandemic.
With this awakening, I learned loving others and connecting to Source, God, Love is the most healing action. The way to allow for more powerful Reiki for my clients is to turn this action on myself. This pandemic has allowed me the blessing of understanding the importance of self-love and self-care made a daily priority.
With so much uncertainty, the one true certain thing is our ability to love ourselves. No matter what happens, we have control over this most healing action. This is the key. No one else can do it for us. We have to learn how to use our most powerful heart generator to feel love for ourselves, all our emotions and mistakes in order to offer this to others. This is how we heal.
If you feel off balance, overwhelmed, angry, frustrated more than you feel love, it may be time to schedule a Reiki session to remember what love feels like flowing through your physical body. Reach out to schedule a session today. Healingwithangels77@gmail.com and just let me know if you prefer mornings or afternoons, weekdays or weekends. Much love to you.💖
