My Gift (and yours!)

As an Intuitive and Reiki Practitioner I am able to feel into a person’s energy and find out where it needs help and even get advice from your guides to help you. Because I have access to all 4 Clairs, I can see and feel your energy and receive information about your energy as pictures, sounds, thoughts or feelings in my head and body. I often tell people that developing intuition is like building a dictionary that is only shared between you and your guides. In the coming paragraphs the descriptions are what is in my personal dictionary and may not match yours if you are an intuitive as well.

You may now be asking what does energy look like? It mostly comes up as colors in my head that pertain to the chakras. Sometimes the chakras are light in color, sometimes they are dark in my dictionary, dark is not preferred unless there is a richness to the color and too light isn’t good either. Sometimes they have dark spots or a hole in the middle, to me this usually means that the energy is suffering a recent or recurring wound of some kind. Sometimes they are contained by a dark ring around the edge, this to me means there is plenty of energy there but it’s being held back for some reason. Sometimes there is gradation in the color within the chakras to me this means healing is occuring. I can also receive images about the chakra. I recently saw a chakra that looked like a pool where a big rock had been thrown into the center. This to me meant that an outside influence had made waves in this energy for good or for bad. 

So what does energy feel like? As I give Reiki I often feel aches in certain chakras revealing a problem area. Sometimes it will be prickly too but for me that has more to do with physical ailments. I will also feel emotions. For instance when I do my Reiki/Reading sessions I let the guides pull me to the chakras that need attention and once I get there I usually get hit with an emotion. This is a general sort of message that is then supported by additional information my guides send through. Sadness may hit when I first get there and I will even get the feeling of tears running down my cheeks if it is a profound sadness related to the issue connected to the chakra. 

While I enjoy sharing this picture of how the information comes through I do have an ulterior motive. Each time I do a Reiki/Reading session with someone not only do I get a picture of what’s wrong, I get a picture of what’s right. Doing these sessions has shown me that even people with a lot of fear or sadness, at the very root of their energy (not to be confused with the root chakra) is this wonderful beautiful essence. In that place there is love, kindness, compassion, and a wonder I would be hard pressed to describe adequately. I often tell people how good their energy feels, I can’t help it, it’s so beautiful that it has to be acknowledged. 

So the main reason for writing all this is to let you know that you have that within you as well. An irrefutable beauty, an incredible power, a never depleting well of love and unimaginable strength even when you can’t feel it, it is there. I am incredibly lucky and grateful to be able to see it and I hope my meager attempts to convey it to those I have been allowed to read for are reaching them. This may sound hyperbolic to some but even then it isn’t enough to really get it across. Try this for me please. Spend some time with yourself, ask your guides to let you feel your own energy and don’t downplay or deny it when you feel it, it’s all true. 

When you feel that swell of positivity and kindness, like light incarnate, that’s you. When you feel a deep and comforting love that covers you like a warm blanket, that’s you too. When there is a strength that feels fused to the earth’s bedrock itself, like a fortress that could take a million arrows or bullets and receive barely a dimple from that kind of attack, yep, that’s yours too. Don’t you dare deny it. The universe wants you to know that this is all contained within you already. 

When you are in touch with this energy imagine what you could do for others. Knowing you can’t be stopped or swayed from your passion. Knowing that you will fearlessly express your love to others without shame or pause. Knowing that you can reach those who seem unreachable, love those who seem unlovable because you can see their light when others can’t. You can guide them to their purpose and help them reveal their light to the world. 

We all have issues projecting those energies at times but that does not negate their existence. Think of life as a human and all the challenges we can face, all the stress that can rain down from various sources. The days that we want to retract from even our most beloved in our lives. The days we don’t even want to venture out from the safety of our beds. The days when everything everyone does feels like an insult or worse an attack.

Close your eyes, take a deep breath and ask to feel that energy that lives inside of you in these moments. You may not spring out of bed but you will realize that you will again, even if it’s not today. You may not run to your beloved and throw your arms around them but you know that you will again soon. 

Sometimes we need this space, to think and feel and acknowledge that we have these amazing resources within us. Sometimes the universe says “They have forgotten who they are, let’s show them.” Sometimes you have been giving too much and not realizing that you deserve the same love and service you give to others, even if you have to provide it to yourself. That’s why we have access to this energy, We are meant to live in love and service but also balance. 

Allow that space, allow that time, speak your truth, air your complaints and hurts honestly and without cruelty. This tells the universe we are ready to heal. We are ready to dip into that endless well within us and replenish, that we are also worthy of the love and service we share with others. We are also deserving of time, space, and acknowledgement. Please receive that message, not just as some words from a post on the internet but into your heart. You are not only valid, but a marvel of the universe, that is your truth. 

Do whatever it takes to infuse that message into your life and you will be supported in the expression of that. You will be imbued with a tangible feeling of all that lies within you and see its splendor in action. You will open yourself to the celebration of all those aspects of yourself that you have denied for so long. You will be working toward a self fulfillment on a scale you didn’t think was possible and even reshape the lives of others just by living as yourself unapologetically and joyfully. Your unique light is the beacon that someone is waiting for, and don’t forget, you are someone too.

Come Book a Session with me to find out how beautiful your energy is and give it some love!

Why I love Practicing Reiki

When describing Reiki I tend to use words like gentle, subtle, relaxing because those are good words for it. It eases you into whatever you are seeking it for. When it’s for pain, the pain just kind of melts away. When it’s for confidence, it brings on a feeling of self love and security, you feel safe and comfortable somewhere you wouldn’t normally. When your seeking calm it’s more like a mellow feeling. The worries are still there, you don’t forget them entirely, they just don’t seem as big a deal. I like this because I know if the situation gets hairy, I haven’t completely lost myself. In fact, subduing that anxiety would help me act more clearly. 

It isn’t a zonked out feeling, though it does a handy job of getting me to sleep when that is its intention, but when I use it for clarity, confidence, focus or any of the other wakeful things I need to do I’m still me. I’m just better. 

On the occasion that I get to attend a Reiki share, this is when multiple Reiki practitioners take turns on the Reiki table while the rest of us give Reiki, I am absolutely blissful afterward. If I do it before work I get comments about what a good mood I am in that night. Almost nothing can break that mood. 

Sometimes I will set Reiki to activate later when I have an event happening. I love that it comes on so subtly for that, because rather than focusing on the Reiki feeling on top of everything else that might be happening, instead I just settle in to my surroundings and at some point realize the Reiki is at work. Usually that is when I am wondering why I’m not more nervous and think ‘Oh yeah, the Reiki!’. 

Reiki in my opinion possesses a quiet power, but don’t get me wrong, I have seen it do amazing things and I have heard amazing feedback from Reiki I have given to others. Through these experiences I have learned that it doesn’t have to be loud, obvious, or dramatic to know that it works. That all of us have the wisdom to use that energy in amazing and efficient ways. I say all of us because Reiki is driven by the higher self of whoever is receiving it. I may intend one thing but your body may know the greater cause of the problem and heal that instead. Ultimately the receiver is in control of how it works because who knows you better than you?

Reiki is a practice rooted in love. That is why I was drawn to learn it and that it why I continue to practice it. I can’t go to my friends work presentation, but I can send Reiki so that I know she will be confident while she gives it. I can’t go with my husband to his important appointment but I can send Reiki to help his travel there be safe and swift. I love that I can help situations that I wouldn’t have been able to before. I love that I can help others with this skill and I love seeing its amazing effects.

You can use Reiki for that?!

Reiki is a fairly well known healing technique. It is used often in clinics that treat pain, cancer, and even for hospice patients. You may have even heard it can also be used for animals for the same reasons, pain, illness and anxiety. Those are wonderful uses for Reiki and really do help those that receive it, but there are many other uses for it that may not be known. For instance, did you know that if you have a big presentation at work and you fear you are too nervous to do a good job you could use Reiki for that? Now there could be an inexhaustible list of ways Reiki could help you, but how about we just start with a few.

Sleep– If you have been having issues falling asleep, or staying asleep and aren’t eager to or can’t take medicine for it, you could try Reiki. Reiki relaxes the body and activates its own healing power so if there is a physical or even mental issue keeping you from deep and restorative sleep Reiki may be the way to go.

Disagreements between friends or family– If you and someone you love have had a falling out and just can’t seem to find the even ground to talk it through, Reiki can help with that. When we are bonded to people we form energetic cords with them. When we fight that can cause damage to these cords. Through the energy used in Reiki though (Universal life energy or Ki) these cords can be healed. This healing is called a Karmic Band Healing*. Once that happens, the door is open for a conversation that can get you back to the happy times.

Location specific anxiety– While Reiki can help for general anxiety, in this case I’m thinking of the kind of experience that makes you literally afraid to return to a specific place. Where you the victim of a car accident and now are terrified to drive on that stretch of road? Or even get in a car? There is a healing technique in Reiki called Crystalline Healing*. It’s given in two sessions at least a day apart and the idea is that when you had that traumatic experience a crystal formed in your energy. These crystals can be dissolved with this healing and help relieve the long lasting pain or emotional baggage that accompanies such a trauma.

Houses, Rooms, pretty much any space you occupy regularly– You know how it feels to walk into your home after a long day at work. The relief, like a weight has been lifted off of you. This is where you are comfortable and can be yourself, well it probably didn’t feel that way the very first time you walked in there. It’s from the happy times you have spent there and the energy you built within that space. Now imagine you just moved into a new place and the air feels stale, and maybe the energy there even makes you a bit antsy. 

If the energy from the previous occupants was full of conflict, sadness or any negative emotion, that energy may still be hanging around. Reiki can cleanse that space and make room for your new happy energy. The great thing is you can do it in just about any space you occupy regularly. Everyone at work been grumpy lately? Cleanse it with Reiki. Did you and your BFF have a big fight in your car and you think of it every time you get in? Cleanse it with Reiki. Well, you get the idea.

Plants– Reiki can bring your favorite houseplant back from the edge, or get your garden growing. I have used Reiki on plants with great results. All it takes is Reiki intended to address the problem the plant is experiencing. Just like with humans and animals. Check out this photo:

After my friends tomato plant didn’t produce any tomatoes all summer I sent it some Reiki and a few days later it produced its first tomato of the season better late than never!

So if you have been interested or even just curious about Reiki I hope this post sheds some light on the various things it can do to improve your life. If you would like to try it for yourself Schedule an appointment now!

The method of Reiki I practice is called Practical Reiki. It was developed from Kundalini Reiki (with permission) by Dr. Alice Langholt my awesome teacher! Crystalline Reiki and Karmic Band Healing are healings I learned under this program.

About Reiki

What is Reiki?
Reiki is a healing modality which uses a life energy, called ki, that surrounds us all the time. An attuned practitioner can direct that energy to an ailment, situation, anxiety, or many other things.This promotes relaxation and enables the body’s own healing capabilities to work better. Though the practitioner intends where the Reiki should go based on the issue you need help with, ultimately your body decides where the healing is most needed; so, sometimes the healing will work in unexpected ways but exactly how you needed. This practice is perfectly safe and is widely used alongside medical treatment in clinical settings. It can also be used to help children, pets and plants.

Reiki can be helpful in a variety of situations. If you have a big job interview coming up, Reiki can help you be calm and walk in with confidence. If you can’t sleep, it can help with that. If you have anxieties about going to the doctor, driving, or visiting a particular location because of past bad experiences, Reiki can help with that too.
Reiki is also great for clearing the energy of a place that feels heavy or unwelcoming; for instance, if an emotionally charged event has happened in your home, and it feels like the energy of it is still hanging in the air. Clearing the energy of your home with Reiki can help restore comfort and peace to the home, and make it feel lighter.

It can even be used on a particularly problematic relationship you may have with someone. If you and someone else are having trouble seeing eye to eye and conversation always turns into a fight as a result, there is a way through Reiki to restore that communication to a healthy place.

Reiki cannot guarantee you get a job, a lover, or a big windfall of money. It cannot compel anyone to do anything they don’t want to. It will always act for the greater good of the situation to which it is applied to bring the best possible outcome. The main purpose of Reiki is to promote healing by reducing stress and restoring balance to put you into a better position to face what is causing your anxiety or ailment. The way I see it is, when you face problems from illness to anxiety one of the major hurdles of getting better is stress. If you could remove that barrier, the possibilities of what could be healed or accomplished are endless.

Reiki should never be used in place of medical treatment for serious medical problems. In fact as stated above, it is often used alongside medical care, and that is as it should be. If I feel like the issue you are requesting help with requires medical care, I reserve the right to refuse my Reiki services. If you seek medical treatment, I would be happy to provide Reiki to help it work more effectively.

What does Reiki feel like?
From those that I have given Reiki to, the most common description has been a feeling of peace and relaxation washing over you. I have had many fall asleep during the process. If you are particularly sensitive to energy, you may experience these sensations more strongly. You may also experience tingling, warmth, or pressure occurring in certain areas of the body. If the energetic sensations you feel don’t seem to match up with the issue you requested help with don’t worry; the involvement of the chakras and the control that your body has as to where the energy is most needed may make it feel random. Just relax, and see how you feel after the Reiki is done. If your eyes are closed you may see colors; this most likely relates to the 7 major chakras, as the healing typically works through the chakras.

Something you should know about receiving Reiki from me:
Due to other abilities I have, I will often pick up intuitive information as I am giving Reiki. This is actually quite common and it is usually information related to your health or spiritual well being. It is not a diagnosis of any kind nor would it resemble a full fledged psychic reading. If you schedule a session with me I will leave it entirely up to you as to whether you would like to hear that information or not. If you choose not to, it will in no way impact the effectiveness of the Reiki. If you would like even more information about your spiritual well being, check out my Energy Scan Reading service.

What is Distance Reiki?
While Reiki is often done in person, this can also be done from a distance, because Reiki is simply the intention of available energy to a specific need. All my Reiki will be provided at a distance unless there are special circumstances involved. The wonderful thing about distance Reiki, however, is that it can be administered in a variety of ways that can fit any schedule. I am able to set it to start at a specific time, so if you are requesting it for help with sleep or a particularly stressful event, I can set it to start just before that so that its effect is working as you try to fall asleep or as you walk into the event. If you aren’t entirely sure when you will need it, it can be queued. That would mean that you decide when the Reiki starts. Many will wait until they have at least 20 minutes to themselves to rest in a quiet room to receive the Reiki, but if it is for a specific event you can activate it just before you walk into the event. It can also be given in real time, if that is what you prefer. I can even get on the phone with you if you would like to know the sensations I am picking up in real time.

In Summary:
I was trained and attuned to Reiki some years ago now, and it has enabled me to help people, animals, and even my own children. I love its gentle way of working, the peace it brings, the relaxation, the clear headedness. I love to help people, and for me this has been a way to help people when I felt there was no other way for me to help.

In all the studies done on it, there was one very important fact revealed. It has never hurt anyone; it causes no damage to the person receiving it. Reiki can help with the vast and varying troubles we all face every day. It can give you a clear head and replace the stress with positivity and healing. I wish it could cure the horrible diseases we contend with today, and perhaps there are some that would say that it could. I skew on the skeptical side of things, believe it or not, but I also believe that anything is possible.

I do know that having your mind in a place that is balanced and relieved of stress can work absolute wonders for so many situations, especially healing, and even in situations where healing is not an option, it can provide peace and enable you to truly enjoy your last days with love and gratitude. I believe there is a reason that despite lack of evidence, it is used in cancer treatment centers and hospice organizations across the world. Many have felt the impact of Reiki and its healing effects; many have benefited. If you’d like to find out for yourself, then book a session with me or another practitioner. Just please keep your mind open, because as my teacher Dr. Alice Langholt says “You don’t have to believe in it; you just have to be open to it.”
