This is a time for exploration of your inner world, a time for gaining clarity and inspiration. It's a time for witnessing what's true for you about yourself and your life, then inviting healing and guidance in whatever areas are asking for attention. You come to the work as you are - Light and Shadow, with curiosity, challenge, suffering, joy, desire, eagerness, passion, exhaustion, whatever is present - exactly who and how you are, with a desire for healing, awareness and guidance. From this place, we invite the energies that will help you to remove obstacles to your freedom and provide assistance to you on your path. Like other forms of divination and traditional shamanic journeying, these sessions can be used to ask for guidance, support or healing in a certain area of life.
Each session begins with gentle dialog to ignite our connection, create a shared clarity about your intention for the journey, and allow healing energy to begin its flow toward you. Your intentions are the foundation for the journey and will be energetically addressed both directly and indirectly throughout the session.
I will make a prayer and invite your spirit helpers to join us in the process. Whether or not you are familiar with or actively work with your helpers (plant spirits, animal spirits, ascended masters, angels, ancestors or other Beings), they will be present, available and active during the session.
You'll be guided into your inner realm, where you can allow the journey to unfold as it will, noticing the flow of experience in your heart, mind and body, and asking questions of your Inner Teacher along the way. How you participate in the journey is up to you. You can lovingly relax, receive and just be, allowing the images to expand and unfold without your inner direction... or you can use your consciousness to actively participate in the course of the journey. I will support your journey with hands-on healing, as well as sacred song and sound.
There are many additional benefits to this work. XXXXXXXXX....... It is a deeply relaxing and comforting experience. Receivers report a feeling of "pushing the reset button" and that it is an experience of clearing and rejuvenation akin to spending a full day in nature. It can help to ease or heal physical injury or discomfort. It can also help to manage stress, clear energetic blockages, create alignment, and release a feeling of "stuckness." It can help you to let go of negative or repetitive thinking, and will help you access greater states of peace and connectedness. This simple, non-invasive practice will assist in your overall health and wellbeing. It is a gentle, powerful channeling and infusion of Love, Light and life force energy that is deeply spiritual (but not associated with any religion).
What happens during a session?
After some gentle dialog and the initial prayer and intention setting, there is no predesigned order for the treatment; it will flow organically and uniquely for each individual. I will place my hands or fingertips on your body, usually on the heartspace and the other energy centers. The work is often point-specific, as in acupuncture. If you are healing a specific injury, I may place my hands on or near that place to help focus the flow. I will use sacred sound, song and instruments to facilitate the healing process. You may keep your eyes open or closed - whatever is most comfortable for you - and it is fine if you relax into a dreamy state or even fall asleep. You may feel subtle or obvious effects during or after the session. You may feel waves of energy moving through your body, tingling sensations, expansion or contraction, or nothing at all. You may see colors, have visions or new awarenesses, or just feel restful. You may laugh or cry, or your body may tremble, or you may be perfectly still. Your curiosity, natural responses and/or stillness are welcomed as part of the healing process. The healing you receive will continue to integrate beyond our time together. As with any practice of personal growth, healing and transformation (such as diet or exercise), it takes consistent application to realize the full benefits of healing sessions. One session can be an extraordinary experience, and many sessions regularly over time can generate a cumulative effect of knowable transformation in your experience of yourself and your life.
What Can These Journeys Help? There really are too many to name. We are such complex beings. Our themes weave in and out of each other, and everything is connected. Here are a few things people have healed or gained clarity about during their journeys: Anxiety Depression Feelings of overwhelm Exhaustion Feelings of being alone or unsupported in the world Feelings of not belonging or not being welcomed in the world Reclaiming a lost part of oneself or integrating an "inner child" - ie. soul retrieval Releasing emotions you've taken on from other people that don't belong to you Releasing bound energy in the throat, finding voice Women - finding energetic movement/awakening in the pelvis as a part of healing from sexual trauma Moving unexpressed/stuck grief Gaining clarity around which direction to take in life Remembering how you really feel or what you really want in life when others' opinions have taken over Reconnecting to Love and heart wisdom Clarity around past lives and their effect on this one Physical relief from pain Reconnecting with previous ingestion of plant medicine in service to continued healing
