Energetic Healing As Part Of Your Self-Care Routine

Self-care is the buzzword of the year, it seems, and there are a multitude of websites with tips on how to go about it, but not a lot mention energetic healing. I think that in many ways we are so conditioned to wanting results right now, that something as subtle as energy work can get pushed to the side in favor of a calming bath or a soothing song…or chocolate. 😉

Energy work can clear blocks and chakras, boost healing, bring about some relief from stress and anxiety, help with headaches, give you an oasis of calm in a busy day…there are so many applications for it that I couldn’t begin to list them!

The lovely thing about this type of healing is that since it can be so subtle, the results are gentle…yet very powerful at the same time. You may not even realize til a month or so later that a change has taken place, and yet it definitely has in its quiet way. On the other hand, many notice an immediate shift…each session is completely different and every person inwardly works with the healing energy differently.

A one-time session can do a lot of work for you, but when it comes to self-care, which should, by all rights, be an on-going routine for all of us, more than one session can really boost your inner healing. It can be once a week, bi-weekly, monthly…whatever feels best for you.

To help get you started, I’m offering a limited-time package of three 30-minute sessions for almost 1/2 off the price of three separate sessions: $50. This price is good until midnight MST, March 31st.

Let’s get that boost going! Self-care FTW!!!

When Spirit Comes Knocking

Sometimes Spirit just really want to get one’s attention, and yesterday She was quite obvious in her determination.

Most mornings I pull some cards to get a feel for the day, and yesterday one of the cards I pulled from the Mythical Goddess Tarot was Yemaya. Now Yemaya and I have a long history of dancing around each other, but I didn’t really think anything about the card beyond the message, which is, in part, about connecting with Mother so you can be a light for others.

Later, at work, we received a shipment of glass figurines that hang from cords. Two of them were mermaids, which I’d never seen before. Pretty, but again, I didn’t give it much thought.

The final frying-pan-upside-the-head was late last night when I was watching “Saving Grace” on Netflix (great show!). A young girl woke from a coma, speaking Portuguese and repeating a phrase. I picked up the word “Yemonja” and waited til they had translated what she was saying, and sure enough, she was praying to Yemonja! Alrighty then!

I did a bit of research (again), and found this article about her, and that’s when the light bulb really went off, and now I’m getting a feel for why she’s been making herself known to me so many times over the last 15 years or so.

This morning’s message came via an Instagram post from Tarot Readings From a Bitch, in which she had created a water altar, something I’ve not done, though it had been suggested to me before by Joanna Powell Colbert. Got it.

-Aside: read both of their blogs. You won’t regret it.

So I’m off to create a water altar, do some connecting, and figure out how to be a landlocked mermaid. 🙂

Have you ever had Spirit, in one form or another, be as determined to get you to pay attention? Who and how? Let’s hear about it!!

PS: Almost forgot! Today and tomorrow, in honor of Yemaya and the water element, I’m offering a 15-minute session for $10 that focuses solely on the chakra associated with water; the sacral chakra. Let’s unblock some of that stuck energy and get things flowing! You can make your payment here, and don’t forget to put your email address in the notes so I can contact you and set up a time!

Spring Forward is a Misnomer

Yes, we turn the clocks forward an hour, so technically it is a true moniker, but in reality, it’s far from it.

Example: you’re in a nice routine, hitting the sack at 10pm ST (Standard Time) and rising at 6. Almost to the point where you don’t need an alarm. It’s winter, so it gets dark early, as it has since the world began, and once the winter solstice hit, you started to notice the normal, slow lengthening of the days. Spring is on its way!

Then, earlier this year than ever before, Daylight Savings comes along. Many, like me, grumble and rail against the change; others love the “hour more of sunlight!”

Let me explain that “hour more”. It’s not. What DST is, in reality, is a setting back of our body clocks* one hour, plain and simple. In exchange for what Mother Nature was gradually bringing us anyway. Yes, you get home from work at 7 DST and there’s still a bit of sunlight left, but at what cost?

At night your comfortable 10pm bedtime is now, thanks to DST, actually 9pm body clock time. So you’re not getting an extra hour of light, you’re losing an hour of time before bed! If you stay up until you get actually sleepy, the clock reads 11, which isn’t enough sleep time. And in the morning your 6 am is now 7 DST, so you have to wake up (body clock) at 5. Everything is back an hour. And I don’t know about you, but having to go to bed when I’m NOT tired in order to get up an hour earlier when I AM tired to fit the clock is a really, really grumbly, completely ridiculous change.

If everyone would just be patient and let things roll in their own time, we’d have gained that “extra hour of sunlight” soon enough, without the stress to our bodies. Doesn’t that make more sense in the long run?

*Standard Time (aka ST) and body-clock time are interchangeable terms.

PS: Stress takes quite the toll on our bodies, in both obvious ways and ones we don’t know about until something major happens to us. Energy healing can help soothe and relieve some of that stress, no matter where you are in the world.

Guest Post by Jen of Cavemoms

Recently I did a healing session for Jen, and she wrote this guest post about the experience. 🙂

Hi, my name is Jenni & I am a mess. Ok, but seriously this is true. If it isn’t one thing it is
another, mainly it’s depression and anxiety though. I have moments where I don’t know which direction to turn because of my anxiety, or if I can even make myself go to the bathroom due to depression.
I am a believer in light healing. Yep, I believe your mind is a powerful thing and a place where you can do amazing things. To send energy to another soul to heal their mind is a crazy but amazing thought. After hearing about this, and not wanting to go on to a prescription medication I thought I would give this a try.

I have depression all year long but seasonally it gets much worse. I hate being trapped inside and I dislike that there is so much cold and no sun for most of the season. Green has to be one of my favorite colors because as soon as there is a little life in the trees it goes down significantly. I ended up posting on social media about being depressed and this is when Pip reached out to me. I was grateful that she did, sometimes I get a little too much in my head. She told me about her sessions and I said what the heck why not.
The experience I had with light healing is a good one. The day we scheduled to do it probably was one of my worse days at the time. I was just stuck inside my head and I wasn’t feeling anything. I didn’t want to be at my job, I was seriously thinking about quitting and I was trying to figure out what would be my next steps. Then she messaged me and reminded me it was my appointment time. I was like whatever. I am at work trying not to just walk out and quit. I had told her to go through with it, and she did. At first I didn’t notice anything, I was still grumpy ol’ me…then it was like a switch… not as subtle as a flip one more like a dimmer switch being turned up, I felt like smiling a little more and more. That day was one of my best sales days, as well as the next few days. I was happily greeting customers and glad to be at work.
Then depression found it’s way back to my brain. I think in order for this to continue to work, I would need to do this more frequently at least once a week, to bi-weekly. Yes, I am saying that I loved the feeling but like any light it fades, it’s not a permanent solution, so like any appointments follow up appointments are needed to maintain the happiness.
My last two cents, Try it… if you are struggling, doesn’t matter what it is.. could be a bad toothache, could be mental or physical, could be emotional or grieving. Book a session or see if you can do a session pack at the time*. I think that follow up is key to success!

Much love,

Hello, March!!!

I love March. It’s a great month for me. And it finally feels like winter is heading out, and spring is wandering in. For the first time ever, there’s been more than one robin at the birdbath. The other day there were 6!! I couldn’t believe it!

Last night I did some random card readings using my trimmed Fey Tarot, and it must have been the wine, but my intuition was on the ball and the cards just spoke to me. It was wonderful! I pulled these for March:

March reading

I love this deck, and I love not knowing what the majority of the cards are. Helps my Virgo step aside and let my Pisces intuition kick in! What do you see in these cards?

Things are changing, that’s obvious. Not always in a good way, but still, changing. I came across an Instagram post by Alaina O’Brien this morning that mentions how things/we are being broken down in order to become something bigger and better. Pretty much sums it all up, wouldn’t you say?

There was also this amazing post by Pearl Wilde that really hit home last night, too.

I have high hopes for March. Hopes that the darkness and fear and struggles will get easier, hope that peace is to be found in the little things, and hope that spring brings growth and joy and happiness with it. Do you have hopes for this month?

PS: I have a part-time day job again, but I have plenty of time for healing sessions! Don’t hesitate to ask for a particular time! If it doesn’t fit my schedule, we’ll work something out. 🙂

PPS: One thing I’ve noticed since I haven’t been using my Filofax…I can’t find anything!
