Heave Ho, Let’s Go!

On the floor next to my bed you will find slippers and 3 books I pick up and a book light.

There is communication all around us, constant and continual. The trick is to tune into the waves to pick up on incoming messages being sent your way. Example, the other morning had a fire drill effect message (mind you, not an alarm emergency siren) to get me moving at 9AM sharp. I didn’t want to budge out of bed because work was not until 1pm and lounging was my plan for at least another half hour. The urgent message to put my feet on the floor, drag a comb across my head was starling. By trusting my gut (solar plexus) over the years, listening to spirit’s whispers, and believing in other modes of communication, I don’t ignore the nudges like I used to. I know swift action is important when visual interpretations start to play out in my mind. Typically I see elementals using their might to pull, push, or roll me out of bed. A fun and playful ordeal expressing the need for me to start the day, I have no choice but to get up.

Remote energy work is amongst one of my favorite craft forms. I set up grids (taught to me as Reiki Grids) for people who request clearing out of their energy field or maybe they are interested in an extra boost for more gusto or even a person might want to simply maintain good health. A grid was active for a dear friend and changes were needed at a specific cosmological time. This is what became more apparent as the seconds went by once out of bed. Prompt movement was required most likely from windows of opportunity held open in the cosmos. I moved a few crystals to different positions on the grid, smudged (smoke from herbs), and rang Tibetan bells to evoke shifts. For my friend to benefit and take advantage of a shift the universe made available, her spirit guides worked in tangent with my guardians to have this physical human work some magic!

Pay attention to the messages, gifts, changes, whispers, inklings, radio songs, pictures, and other ways something catches your eye and thought. We are not alone in this world. Ask the incoming frequency for a clearer understanding, even meditate on the change. Practicing every day will help you put your best foot forward in the world.

February is Love Month!

February-Month-of-Love-1-300x245

For the calendar’s L-O-V-E month, I thought I would offer up a caring deal for those of you seeking energy work.

There are a few choices you have for taking me up on a reduced session this month. Being local to CT makes holding a face to face meeting something we can plan for. I wrote about what to expect from spending an hour with me on WordPress several years back. Every experience is different as is every time we work together. I have changed my craft but the base, the main components are still the same. What you may find different with me verses other practitioners you have encountered is my willingness to listen to my intuition, guides, and guest speakers.

If travel around Connecticut U.S.A is not in your future, please know there are other ways we can communicate sending healing energies your way. Everyone, no matter where they live or what extra time their calendar allows can benefit from remote work. Energy is free flowing. We know it works well through power lines being noticeable throughout our landscape with large power stations and transformers. Like radio waves, broadcasting or beaming healing energy shares a similar movement though the air. I wrote a short piece on this blog recently about the Reiki practice of formulating a grid. Another way to transmit messages and helpful inspirations is though shaman journeying.

Either way you choose energy work, I am sure you will find it fun and helpful on many levels. If interested, I can go into more detail in the comments area. Please know we can chat privately by Email too.

Benefits of a Reiki Grid

antahkaranafemalecardstockOP700F

I have set up two recently and marvel at the power generated from placing quartz crystals in a pattern and drawing Reiki symbols over them (usually done with a wand). Because of my relationship with the mineral kingdom, I typically add other gems to the grid. Each set up is uniquely different. I always have a fun time communicating with the crystals and learning who wants to go where and how the energy should flow by adjusting points and positions. The Antahkarana Symbol (above) is the base for the crystals with other mineral friends joining in and placed here and there.

When I feel the personalized grid is at it’s peak, I take a picture to share with the individual who requested the remote Reiki treatment. For respect of privacy, I do not share any of these photos on social media. Therefore, you probably have not seen this aspect of my energy work I adore. I would be happy to set one up on your behalf! The grid is great for energy balancing, wiggling out stagnancy within our systems, shifting inner focus, healing wounds known and unrealized, giving extra pep to our bodies, and of course many other pieces not fully recognized to assist us to become greater.

Edit adding in February 2018 to share more information on my grid development and set up, please know change is very important with energy work. Nature does not stay the same, life does not stay the same, methods alter and switch. Over the years, I’ve used different designs other than the Antahkarana which I originally learned with. Other metaphysical tools have come in and out of grid set-ups with sound (vibration) being a notable addition to this remote work. A detailed write up and pictures are sent to you daily for as long as the grid is active (minimum of 3 days).

What to Expect from an Energy Session

Sometimes giving too much of an explanation is not necessarily a good thing, especially when you are skeptical to begin with. However, some type of introduction to what you are about to experience can be helpful and even tamp down some of those I don’t know if this is for me feelings. In my opinion, the receiver has to be willing and ready in order for healing energy to be absorbed gracefully. When a first time client comes to me, I typically tell them what to expect from an energy session from me… and it goes a little like this:

You (fully clothed) will be situated in a safe and relaxing environment (my living room) seated in a reclining lounge chair with blankets and pillows. It will not be a massage but every now and then I will place my hands on your arms or legs, which is referred to as “light touch”. Music can be playing or not, it is easy for me to taylor the surroundings to your comfort level.

Because I love the mineral kingdom, rocks are all around this room (as well as the house) and I often used them while conducting energy work. The method that I use is a mixture of modalities that I have learned over the years and the technique is by instinct (rather than by books or notes). Because I believe in the power and energy of rocks, sometimes I will ask you to hold them or will place them under the chair you’re on.

My physic skills have improved allowing for a dialog of sorts to happen between us. I can usually pick up on what your body wants or needs to improve health. I also get  communications which may be important on some level regarding just about anything.  This information, along with other messages, can be shared with you, if you wish. I make a strong attempt to just tell you what I am picking up on and allow you to decipher the messages.

Each healing practitioner is different and has undergone various trainings from teachers and workshops. Just like with many things in life, it might take awhile to find a good match for this type of work. I encourage you to try new things and ask for the sample package if you are not willing to undergo a full session. In my opinion someone who is looking out for your best interest will answer your questions and share information on how they have come to practice energy work.

Sharing Angelic Beliefs

The medieval 'Queen Mary harp' Clàrsach na Ban...

I had a very affirming conversation with a woman the other day. Because I was representing the local hospital (Reiki volunteer) a level of professionalism needed to be maintained. All I wanted to do was yell, “Me too!” while pulling up a chair and continuing the convo like school yard buddies reuniting during college’s Thanksgiving break. Keeping my voice low and not waving my arms around while conducting energy work is hard enough here, now finding a new friend who is talking so openly to a stranger (me) makes my heart sing. Some of the topics covered were near death experiences, good and not so good entities, faith, and angels. I would like to devote some WP time to angels and the things I consider to be factual. Again, this is my opinion based on personal experience, stories read, lectures heard, accounts of others (my new friend in particular) and an overwhelming sense of truth on the matter.

Enough proof has been collected over the years and I’m happy to proclaim, angels always have music and song around them. This orchestra and choir is unlike anything us humans have created or heard but it is similar enough for us to interpret as music and song. The woman I met, who prompted this post out of me, concurred as to not fully understanding the sound. We spoke of a few  experiences with our eyes brimming with joy and wonder. Incomprehensible beauty and awe, scored with grace, including a melody of hope and love is an attempt to explain what it sounds like. The written word still falls short of explaining the angelic music. No, interpretive dance would not help either, wink.

The Son of Man

Another fact is angels often come before key players. That was a relaxed and playful way to write, angels clear the way for some of the most loving spirits. Mother Mary and Babaji are two I’m familiar with. Why do angels lead the procession? I can only speculate and guess it is to assist with the balancing of  energy required for the ones behind them. Another ways to say it is, angels help to raise the vibration of the room so the message, blessing or communication  from key speaker, is channeled in a way that’s the most beneficial for all concerned.

Those were the two metaphysical things I learned and now fully believe to be factual after my jam packed 5 and a half hours of volunteering. That day was filled with all types of emotion, covering all levels of the spectrum. Taking a short  break before calling it a day, I sat with one of the nurses in the lunch room. My new friend was heading out too and found me and her nurse in the room. It’s Easter time and her Catholic community performs traditional holy week ceremonies which she actively participates in. As she was telling us about her weekend plans (which included singing) I pictured her dressed in white clothing. Then, more subtle than a breaking news ticker scroll, I heard very clearly in my mind, make sure you tell her to wear white. Just as fast as I was receiving information, she was gone. The prompting had the type of alert to heed, so I excusing myself from the table to chase down my new friend. Pushing the boundaries of professionalism, I shared with her some of the information by saying, if she has the chance,”…wear something white for the events” Not going into too much detail, I kept up my smile and added, “Wearing white might allow some type of blessing to come through clearer and more focused, helping you with whatever healing you needed.” She nodded in understanding and we were  glad to be able to give one another a hug. Hugs are professional, right?

When I got back to my lunch mate, I said with a full heart, “God bless you for being a nurse.” She laughed and said with a mouth full of quiche, “God bless you for volunteering.” Fair enough… fist bump.

Living on the Ledge

As a child I would take my fathers hammer and wallop a mixed assortment of landscaping pebbles on the driveway. Yes, I got in trouble for making a mess and creating divots on the pavement but I didn’t care… they were beautiful on the inside, nothing to how they looked on the outside. I had become rather obsessive compulsive with pulverizing them. Perhaps I was working out aggravation or simply bored, either way it took several punishments and lectures to curb my habit. It wasn’t until my adulthood and my fascination to all things mineral I’ve come to realize a big part of why I was doing this was to get energy from breaking them open.

Our home, my husband’s and mine, sits on a beautiful ledge that spans the neighborhood street. This rock comes into the basement and has been shaped by the original owners into a bench of sorts. There were several factors to why we bought this house and one of them was the ledge. Over the years I have had many personal revolutions and feel many were due to the energy of the house and land, with a nod to said rock. Another person on the block has commented on how happy she is when sitting in her living room. “The energy is wonderful in here, such a positive vibe. I get great ideas and I’m always in a good mood.” I laughed and replied, “It’s the rock!” She was surprised to realize the ledge runs right under that area of her house.

I have sat on this ledge and wrote. I have sat on this rock and practiced Reiki healing attunements. I’ve watched my nephews and niece run and stumble along this ledge many times (if it seems big to me, it must be a mountain to them). Many of my adult friends like to stand on it too. There have been times when a few have excused themselves and went outside to be alone with the rock.

Around this property I have rocks from my childhood home. I could not part with them once the house was sold. Some of the stones came from my maternal grandmother house’s rock garden and others I sat on growing up. I took what I could fit into the car and placed them around this yard. Now we are in the process of moving off the ledge and have no clue how I’m going to fit this rock into my car! There are a few pieces that have fallen off because of weathering. Those will come with us to our next move for sure, along with the others from my homestead. I have always surrounded myself with stones and believe in the comfort they share with me. Not sure just why I love minerals so much but sure it has spanned all of my lifetimes, not just this one.
