Chakra Balance Tool

What’s the first thing you do if you begin to lose your balance?

I never liked the feeling of falling, crashing to the sidewalk and experiencing the crunch of bones, joints, and, well, my sense of self. I know you understand what I mean. The truth is, we have too much experience with being off-balance – not just in the physical way of falling, but the emotional and spiritual way, too. Life happens. People (and animals) get sick. Friends move. Jobs change. Crises occur. That’s all part of the journey. But if you’re feeling off-balance for long, you might tend to stay that way. (I see it all too often!)

Hold on. Brace yourself. Prepare for the worst. In that split second before the fall, you reach out, trying to grasp something to support you. If you’re lucky, it works and you avoid the consequences. If you lose your balance and find yourself sitting on an icy sidewalk (as I did a few years ago), you hold on, brace yourself, and reach out for a hand up. What you do next really matters.

I’m the type of person who grabs onto lessons at every opportunity. Though after my second fall (yes, I fell twice in the same spot) I took extra precautions to make sure I wouldn’t fall again. I changed the type of shoes I was wearing to have extra traction, and walked on the other side of the street to avoid icy spots. However, I was sore and really put a lot of effort into self-care with massage and acupuncture, as well as yoga and stretching.

I had the nagging questions of WHY I fell, why it happened in the same place, and what was I supposed to be doing in my life. The fall came as a message from the universe, I felt, that somehow I needed to pay attention to being more balanced – in every way! If you think like that, too, and if a fall isn’t just a fall, then take the opportunity to go a little deeper.

The Chakra Balance Tool

chakra balance tool downloadChakras are energy centers in the body that move and spin. These energy centers are a direct expression of your soul as they manifest into physical form. If you’re feeling weak, injured, upset, stuck, or otherwise deficient in some way, it could be because you’re either blocking energy or leaking energy. Both blocking and leaking energy are often regulated, at least in part, by emotions, events, and perceptions. These topics can fill books. To make it easy, I’ll just skip to the solution.

The Chakra Balance Tool is designed to give you the power to heal yourself. You don’t have to be attuned to Reiki to use the tool and do the exercise, however, using Reiki amplifies the process. If you’re on my list already, you have a direct link to the tool in my newsletter. If not, just subscribe and I’ll be happy to send it to you.

 

Learn the Benefits of Sound Healing with Tuning Forks

We’re surrounded by sound, and yet, how much of the sound we hear and feel are actually beneficial and, well, HEALING? If you’re plugged in, what are you really plugged into? Chaos and disharmony in the form of sound waves have an effect on the body that interferes with growth, healing, and regeneration of healthy cells and tissues. How do we know which sounds are  disharmonious and which sounds benefit us? In addition, how do sounds HEAL? As a practitioner working with energy healing modalities, becoming attuned to healing frequencies can enhance and accelerate healing for you as well as your clients.

Healing Sounds

My favorite healing frequencies, the solfeggio 6-tone scale, show a mathematical relationship – an expression of harmony with which all living things resonate. Sound is measured in Hertz (Hz). In the table below, see if you can discover the numerical relationships between each of the solfeggio frequencies.

396 Hz – Liberating Guilt and Fear

417 Hz – Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change

528 Hz – Transformation and Miracles (DNA Repair)

639 Hz – Connecting/Relationships

741 Hz – Expression/Solutions

852 Hz – Returning to Spiritual Order

These harmonious frequencies can actually be seen (sound becomes visible) when various substances exposed to these sounds vibrate. The small crystals of salt or sugar, for example, begin to move and form patterns on a flat surface. Dr. Hans Jenny showed in a process he  called cymatics that pure tone vibrations create these beautiful patterns, not only in the lab, but also in nature. We see these patterns everywhere; the arrangement of petals in a flower, waves washing up on shore, the formation of coral reefs in response to whale songs, and many more. Chaotic or non-pure tone sounds elicit no patterns.

We can then relate the reformation of broken bones, the development of muscle tissue, and even the structure of DNA to the possibility that certain sounds heal. Though there’s much more to include in this short article about solfeggio frequencies, cymatics, and healing, I’d like to now suggest that experience is the best teacher. Yet, as we continue to be “plugged in” to electronic devices, we find ourselves not in-tune with the healing sounds of nature. Here’s where we, as healers and practitioners, can make a huge difference for not only ourselves but also for our clients. Bring on the tuning forks!

What are the Benefits of Using Tuning Forks as a Practice?

The Natural Therapies Certification Board offers accreditation for many healing modalities, including sound healing. As a stand-alone healing modality, a practitioner has the option to pursue training as a Vibrational Sound Practitioner with continuing education as a Vibrational Sound Teacher. In some states, CEUs may be accepted in the field of sound healing to apply toward re-licensing of other modalities such as body work. (Check with your licensing board for more information on what they accept for CEUs). Of course there are many benefits beyond certification. Here are a few:

  • Single-tone harmonious frequencies enhance the effectiveness of other healing modalities
  • Effortlessly integrate sound with Reiki, massage, hypnosis, etc.
  • Use as a stand-alone healing modality with superior effectiveness and client results
  • Increases uniqueness in your field
  • Helps raise your personal vibrational levels
  • Helps healing in your own etheric field
  • Helps create a sacred space
  • Supports energetic hygiene
  • Helps balance your inner vortex
  • Releases unseen blocks in the body
  • Heightens intuitive awareness and psychic abilities
  • Experience minimal to no strain on the physical body
  • Easy to learn with effective results
  • Creates a nice sound bath
  • Attunes you to go beyond the physical and energetic limitations of other modalities
  • Helps you work as a shepherd for transformation
  • Offers a unique method for targeted healing work
  • Optimizes wholeness on the physical, emotional and spiritual plains
  • Assists you in working with ease and grace
  • Effortlessly tap into higher realms of consciousness

The Art of Teaching Reiki

Reiki, hands-on and distance healing through the wisdom and training brought to us by Mikao Usui in 1922 has grown into a healing modality available to everyone. Receiving a Reiki attunement is a simple, yet sacred practice through which energy flows from the Divine, through the capable, intentional hands of the Reiki Master, to the willing recipient. In many ways, the process is very simple. Knowing what to do, which Reiki symbols to use, where, how, and when, complete the attunement process.

Is that all there is to doing Reiki?

Not really. The attunement process – becoming attuned to any level of Reiki, including Reiki Master – just opens the door for energy to flow. The next steps involve training and developing sensitivity to the feel of energy as well as intuitive guidance on how to use Reiki. These sensitivities and skills come with practice and mentoring, feedback on technique, and guidance on a vast number of situations new students may encounter.

What’s the difference between Reiki Master and Reiki Master Teacher?

Reiki Master is an intermediate level of training that gives the practitioner three Reiki symbols and the ability to perform Reiki attunements as well as healing, and self-attunements. Becoming attuned as Reiki Master is indeed an important step displaying a practitioner’s commitment to the practice and lifestyle of spiritual healing. Reiki Master is not and end, but rather a new beginning. Newly attuned Reiki Masters move into the world with new confidence and new direction, or sense of purpose. It’s truly wonderful!

Reiki Master Teacher is an art that has been vastly under-valued and overlooked as a necessary part of bringing more competent Reiki students into the world. Why? Learning how to DO Reiki is different from learning how to TEACH Reiki. Teaching involves a different set of skills; ways to demonstrate techniques, writing curriculum to meet the growing need for integrative skills, spiritual mentoring, coaching skills, personal energetic hygiene, and an understanding of the laws surrounding energy healing modalities are all a part of Reiki Master Teaching know-how.

Spirituality of Unconditional Source

20180730_145911Last week as I chose a crystal to accompany me on my meditation, I let go of any preconceived ideas about which crystal to choose and for which purpose. My only intention, honestly, was to have a friend along to be present with me while I connected to the divine. Oh, yes, sometimes I choose a specific stone with which to work. Maybe it’s one that’s newly acquired, or jumping out at me from my table of assorted crystals. However, in this case, the crystal that wanted to join me on my journey was a “singing quartz point” I received from a friend in Arizona. I was originally drawn to having such a crystal in my set of crystal friends when I first met one more than a year ago while in teacher training for advanced sound healing classes. Little did I know that bringing one into my life would have such a profound impact.

The Physical Nature of Spirit

First, let me tell you about the physical nature of this particular quartz crystal. As with most quartz points, this one has six sides, and six facets which all come to a point at one end with a growth pattern of 4-5-3-3-4-5. That means that each of the pointed facets have edges that, when counted may reveal something about its nature and function. It has markings on the sides indicating its use as a record keeper. There is some indication of “damage” which created a rainbow effect in one intersection of the faces. Small crystals attached to two of the sides are referred to as barnacles indicating new energy, while markings of an imprint embed the energy of a crystal that may have grown adjacent to this one. Partly clear and partly clouded, it’s the perfect balance of masculine and feminine wisdom.

Though people most often associate physical characteristics of quartz points with their energy and their meaning, I like to notice those features “second”, after I get to know the feeling of the spirit within the crystal. I often prompt my Reiki students to rely on their own senses to receive messages from any crystals we have in class. As I sat in silence and quieted my mind, I was quickly invited IN, inside the crystal, as I have often experienced when meditating with quartz. Experiencing the feeling of quartz from an inside perspective slows things down and I can see as well as feel the inner nature of the Being with whom I’m communicating. Images of molecular structure and the 3-dimensional components of chemistry and biology passed by my mind as I went deeper into the story unfolding before me. I heard the word “conditional” and instantly knew that the crystal held to my heart as well as the crystal in which I walked spoke to me about how the 3-dimensional world relied on what we understood as Laws of Science. Atoms get together, electrons move around, one molecule joins with another, and so forth, because that’s the way our earth exists for us.

Then my focus shifted to the space between the atoms and physical structures. The space became vast, uncluttered by physical construction, patterns, and “conditions”. I felt myself become instantly uplifted and unencumbered by my own physicality. I heard the word “unconditional” and knew, at least in part, the meaning of the message. The Divine Source exists in the unconditional state – in the spaces between the fabrication of our seen reality. Objects and structures exist only on the “condition” of scientific laws, the ones we understand and apply to 3-dimensional rules . . . positive attracts negative, for example. In the unconditional realm of infinite possibilities, we must give up any misconceptions about our existence.

What If?

Though science tells me that silicone dioxide makes up the chemical composition of quartz, it feels to me that simplifying a spiritual being (the one dwelling in quartz on this dimensional plane) overlooks the magic we all hold inside us. We’re unconditional beings living in a conditional world. What if we approached our sense of being and purpose as “magical”, “unlimited”, and “unconditional”?

Sometimes I hear words that come across as excuses as to why a person can’t achieve their goals, have money, prosperity, love, joy, clarity, and all the things that feel beyond reach to them. Though I won’t diminish how people really feel about their circumstances or the moments that led up to their conditional conclusions, I will offer that perhaps another view exists – one already inside us, in the spaces between the physical structures of muscles, bones, cells, and electrons. Those spaces are much more vast, and more powerful than the 3-dimensional conditional “reality” outside of spirit.

Embodied Spirit

Have you discovered your Soul’s Purpose? Do you have answers to the big questions – Who am I? Why am I here? What is my soul’s purpose? How do I manifest everything I want? In an effort to share a process that goes beyond the physical plane to the unconditional way of being, I’ve developed an online course called Embodied Spirit. As I prepare to launch  Embodied Spirit™ I’m inviting a few people who feel ready to go beyond limitations to discover new possibilities.

First, fill in the form on my website here to get access to my free ebook. Then, I’m accepting a limited number of applications (only 15 people) to participate in the Pre-Launch class. This is offered at a dramatically reduced price of only $249 for the first four modules, after which you have the option to continue modules 5-7 for only $99 (a total investment of only $348). After the course officially launches later, the price will be $997.

I know you’re going to love it, but just in case you have any reservations, if you’re not completely satisfied with the pre-launch course, your investment can be applied toward any private sessions or classes. Just let me know within 30 days of purchase to make the adjustment.

I can’t wait to hear from you. Many blessings,

Emergency Kit for Lightworkers

Though safe travel involves careful planning, little things may come up that require your attention. As a Lightworker – energy healer – you’re already utilizing your gifts and talents to clear space, keep yourself grounded and protected in large groups, and ensure a restful sleep in a strange environment, right? However, if you want to select a few extra tools for your basic emergency kit, I’d like to suggest these as wonderful options to support you and your family as you travel.

Lightworker Care For Pets:

Essential oils* (see below) are a natural option to help in many situations that come up while on vacation.

  • To help protect from fleas and ticks I used Purification on Gracie before going outside in the tall grasses of Central Oregon. Rub one or two drops into your palms and apply by rubbing all over legs, neck, tail, belly, and back. If you have single essential oils, try Tea tree, citronella, or lavender. If a bite or wound does occur, lavender can be applied directly to the skin.
  • Lemon essential oil came in handy when Gracie sat in pine pitch. Instead of cutting away her beautiful fur, or pulling out the pine needles, I applied lemon essential oil directly to the pine pitch and rubbed her fur gently until the pitch was dissolved and her fur was clean.
  • Over-doing the exercise? Muscle aches and joint discomfort can be alleviated with a mix of Raindrop essential oils. (This is a great opportunity to combine your energy healing work – Reiki – with essential oils). Use your customized Raindrop mix along the spine. Also try PanAway directly to sore areas, for example shoulders, and add Copaiba essential oil (high in beta-caryophyllene which is a CBD – cannabinoid compound naturally found in the copaiba tree resin). Copaiba essential oil from Young Living is more than 50% β-caryophyllene.

Tuning forks (sound healing) are surprisingly easy to include in your Lightworker’s emergency kit. I selected these tuning forks and had the occasion to use them several times:

  • OM tuners – after activating the fork, use the stem to apply to trigger points or sore areas. The vibration of OM travels deep into the body, bringing nitric oxide produced by the cells into the bloodstream. (learn more about nitric oxide from my previous article) I used two OM tuners on Bruno, my son’s dog after he had a vigorous time chasing the ball. Oils are applied first along the spine and sore areas. Then use the OM tuners in the same areas.
  • Crystal tuner – with a vibration of 4096 Hz, this small friend to Lightworkers has many uses. Since animals may be sensitive to sound, it’s likely your animal is also sensitive to the energies of previous inhabitants. Use the crystal tuner gently in spaces around the accommodations to clear unwanted energies. Energize food and water by tapping the crystal tuner to a quartz crystal, and sounding over your meal.

Lightworker Care For People:

Of course, all of the above mentioned essential oils and techniques can be used for humans. In addition, see how I enhanced my experiences on vacation. Essential oils are a favorite tool for me. Here are a few ideas for you to include in your energy self-care:

  • Vetiver essential oil is great as a scent and for feeling grounded in large crowds. It’s very thick, loaded with sesquiterpenes that last a long time in your body.
  • Anoint your feet with a drop of ImmuPower blend or frankincense mixed with a dab of shea butter or your favorite lotion. I love ImmuPower essential oil. It feels like the Divine in a bottle to me. While you’re anointing your feet, take the opportunity to state your intentions for the day.
  • Sunburn heals faster when properly cared for. Avoid ingesting citrus essential oils before exposure to sun. Sun exposure that leads to reddened skin can be soothed by lavender and myrrh essential oil mixed with an oil carrier high in antioxidants such as rosehip oil or marula oil. Add a dab of deep penetrating face cream with hyaluronic acid as an assistant to skin care healing. Always avoid additives that aren’t natural (like propylene glycol).
  • Stay clean when using public restrooms. Use a drop of Thieves essential oil to help sanitize, or make a spritzer with water and Thieves oil blend. Have a bottle in the car for easy access while traveling.
  • Sleep easier in a strange environment with your custom blend of essential oils. Try lavender, valerian, frankincense, Ruta, vetiver, and the flower of your choice (geranium, rose, chamomile,  or ylang ylang). Diffuse in the air, spritz, or apply to your feet for easy sleep and renewal.

Self-care may be one of the most important components of your Lightworker’s Emergency kit. Be sure to take time daily for meditative moments, and connecting to nature. If you need more ideas or would like to order products, please ask! I’d love to hear from you.

Usui Reiki 1 & 2 Together

Reiki, the Japanese method of healing and relaxation, has been present in its current form for many years. Yet, energy healing modalities are not limited to Reiki. There is, in fact, no limit to the possibilities of accessing Reiki energy as a healing modality. The limits I have found in working with Reiki for many years can be summarized with three vital points:

  1. Delay in action – Students who become attuned to Reiki level 1 sometimes become “stalled” in their progress. Life happens. People move away, have a shortage of funds, find no time, or any number of reasons to delay continuing their practice. After a while, the first Reiki attunement seems too far away to continue practicing.
  2. Lack of training – One of the most important aspects of learning Reiki is to actually find the time to practice it. Yet, some students lack proper training on energy techniques that promote confidence and competence.
  3. Lack of community support – Receiving a Reiki attunement is wonderful, but it’s just the beginning. Once the energy door is opened, it’s important to connect with like-minded people. We’re not alone, yet sometimes our awakening makes us feel separate, different, and maybe a little strange.
  4. Lack of developing sensitivity – In order to make Reiki easier to teach and use, early Reiki teachers developed a system of hand positions that offered good results. However, Usui initially intended for Reiki hand placements to be intuitive and encouraged the use of Byosen scanning as well as other intuitive techniques.

As a result, our Reiki classes take the best of all Reiki trainings. We focus on combining the Reiki experiences of Reiki 1 & 2 together into a full weekend class. There’s no waiting to continue your training.

Seamlessly, we weave together the energy concepts of Reiki fundamentals with exercises that promote confidence and competence. You’ll receive more than an attunement. You’ll have training on how to use Reiki immediately and integrate Reiki into daily practice. Reiki is a lifestyle. We’ll show you how it’s done, effortlessly.

Our Reiki community extends in many ways. We have a secret facebook group for Reiki students and continuing education experiences and workshops that help connect you to a greater grid – humanity.

We focus on the intuitive nature of Reiki. In fact, it’s a priority. We know that your awakening is happening, and you want to get started in the best possible way. We have tools to support you on your journey – The Healer’s Journey free webinar, Sensory Intuition Workshops, sound healing classes, and our own unique advanced training for Illuminated Healers.

Why do we teach Reiki 1 & 2 classes together? You’re ready for it. The world needs you. Step into your power as an intuitive healer. Check our calendar for the next available classes.
