All in the Family

I got to work with a client today on a minor, secondary respiratory issue – one that we visit occasionally as we continue to work on her primary topic. Each time we have checked in on this respiratory issue, she has mentioned that her father and her sister have both had this same condition and that maybe it’s just the way things are going to be. This is a common way of rationalizing away things we think we cannot control. But each time she says this, it presents an energetic obstacle to our moving forward, so I chose today to actually address this. Read More

Lighter and Brighter

If you’re at all sensitive to energy, you’ve probably noticed that the energy outside is pretty dicey.  With perhaps the most toxic election in history coming to a peak in the next week or so, and just the overall craziness level out there being pretty high, it can be super helpful (you might say “essential”) to have a refuge or a retreat environment at home where we can release all the energy we’ve picked up as we are out and about; where we can relax our guard and (most importantly) where we can restore our energy and be ready for the next day.  That’s where space clearing comes in.

Rye Bread Revelations

As I was mixing up a batch of rye bread this afternoon, I caught myself stirring more than just the dough.  While standing there, I observed my mind getting stirred up over a situation I am involved with, one that has a certain amount of emotional charge to it.  As soon as I noticed this, I immediately stopped working the dough and redirected my attention to something positive.  You see, these thoughts — the energy of these thoughts — can get embedded in the food we are handling.

In that movie, “Like Water for Chocolate,” Tita has to make a wedding cake for her sister, who is marrying the man Tita is in love with— and of course she is crying into the cake batter.  At the reception, the wedding guests Read More

Fear Factor

When I first began working with Keene, and we were still in the “getting to know you” phase, I made the mistake of grabbing a tissue and turning towards him.  Immediately he dashed behind the two upholstered chairs, cowered and looked at me through terrified eyes.  Okay, I thought.  I didn’t get much of a history on Keene, but this was pretty clear fear based behavior.

He was willing to call a truce and share the space of the treatment room with me as we did our first session.  I tried not to move around or disturb him too much.  He appreciated that Pranic Healing is a no-touch healing modality, and he could keep a comfortable distance.  His energy was very collapsed and holding a lot of stress and fear.   Although he physically lay down, he still had that gripping feeling at the end of the first session.

Jilly and the Hot Spots

Jilly is a young Golden Retriever who had been receiving conventional treatment for hotspots on her neck, with absolutely no improvement after fourteen days of a topical cream.  So I got to work on her.  I found imbalances in her auric field, meridians and especially the chakra system.  As is often the case with skin disorders, the source of the issue is somewhere other than the surface of the skin.  In Jilly’s case, it seemed like it was a stress-related situation, which was impacting her body’s ability to heal the skin irritation.  In energetic terms, she had an overactive and congested Solar Plexus chakra, which was contributing to an extremely underactive Basic chakra.  The Basic chakra Read More
