Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is spiritual guidance and healing?
A: Spiritual guidance and healing is a powerful combination that assists in creating mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual balance. Stress, unresolved feelings, and painful memories can become stored in our bodies creating imbalances, a loss of vitality, and can even affect our relationships and personal happiness.
Stress and traumatic experiences, ranging from ridicule and negative thinking to abuse or illness, can create emotional and energetic blockages in our bodies.
When we resolve blockages, we don’t feel “weighed down” and energy flows more smoothly. We then feel happier, inspired, and more loving to others and to ourselves. We are able to embrace a life that is in alignment with our higher selves.
Healing can help you heal the past, reclaim your spirit, access your personal power, trust your inner guidance, and tap into self-healing abilities.
Q: How does shifting & releasing energy create balance?
Connection between cells, emotions, and trauma:
A: Stress and illness are often linked to the challenges that life presents. These ailments create imbalances in the natural flow of life energy, which get stored in our cells. Cells also store emotions and trauma, which, over time, can impede how well we function and how happy and peaceful we feel inside.
Q: What do you mean by trauma?
A: Many times, people consider trauma as a debilitating experience such as an accident, a loss, or an attack to our physical, emotional, or mental well- being such as physical or sexual abuse. However, our bodies are wiser than that—they not only store the “big” traumas, but also smaller, seemingly more innocent ones. Being called stupid when you were five years old…feeling abandoned by a certain person or relationship…watching an animal or another person get hurt—all of these traumas create imprints in our cells.
Our cells are the warehouses of all our memories, negative and positive messages, words and emotions. All unresolved emotional and physical traumas can create blockages, impeding you from living your best self.
Q: How is trauma is transformed during a session?
A: Cellular memories begin to unblock and you experience a physical and emotional release of those traumas. It is not always necessary to remember all the memories that are stored but to simply experience the energetic release is sometimes enough.
Together we will find and release the trauma, emotions, and negative memories that have been on lock-down in your body all these years. With such a release, you will feel a powerful shift—a freedom to break patterns and release any pain or limitation you have been feeling. Doing so, you will naturally feel more connected to your true self and in alignment with what your spirit longs for.
Q: How is healing related to spiritual growth?
A: Becoming aware of how your own energy is working within and around your body helps you become more sensitive not only to your own emotional and physical needs but also to your spiritual desires. Healing helps to open your spiritual center and clears the auric field enabling you to feel new sensations.
Healing fosters transformation and connection to your true self by creating a sense of deep and lasting spiritual connection. By liberating yourself to live the life your soul intends, you will no longer need old painful emotions and deep rooted limiting behavioral patterns.
If you desire to connect with a deceased loved ones or a higher power, opening yourself spiritually can cultivate these relationships.
Q: What is the connection between the body and emotions?
A: Emotions speak through the physical form of the body. Most people can relate to literally feeling a pain in their chest when they have “heartache” such as a break up of a relationship or the death of a loved one. This is one common example of painful emotions manifesting in physical sensations or pain.
Our bodies are the gateway to our consciousness. Sickness and pain are often the body’s way to communicate. Whether you have an injury or ailment in your physical body, or if you find yourself caught in a particular behavior or pattern that you want to change, your body is speaking.
Becoming aware of the signs and symptoms of how your body expresses pain enable you to take preventative measures to maintain health. What is your body saying to you?
Q: What is the difference between Reiki and the energy healing you do?
A: Reiki is one form of energy healing. There are certain points during a session that appear similar to Reiki, however, I use a vast array of other techniques such as guided meditation, imagery, releasing blockages, building energetic strength, conversation, breath, vocalizations and other techniques that stem from indigenous practices such as soul retrieval and ancestral healing. See below for info on soul retrieval and ancestral healing.
Q: What is soul retrieval?
A: Traditionally, Shamans believed that soul loss commonly caused illness, fatigue, depression, misfortune, and other emotional and mental disorders. Part of the soul can be lost when we are in deep emotional or physical pain (examples of a soul loss can occur through: an accident, grief, surgery, a fearful period, abuse, etc.).
Common symptoms of soul loss would be not remembering a period of your life, knowing in your heart that something is missing, or feeling that you have “just not been the same” since a certain event or experience took place. Soul retrieval connects to the parts of yourself that were lost and restores your power and energy so you are once again whole.
Q: What is ancestral healing?
A: Have you noticed what does not flow with ease in your life? What struggles, if any, keep presenting?
I have found that in many cases, this un-ease or blockage can be traced to a pattern located somewhere back in our lineages. We carry the unfinished business, the unresolved past of our ancestors within our bodies, hearts, and minds. Many of these patterns are inherited and passed down through the generations.
Ancestral healing is a way to directly connect to your lineage, honor the lives of the many souls who came before you, and unravel the unheard stories of your ancestors. When we heal the past, we are free to live in the moment and move into a future that supports our deepest desires and truest selves.
Ancestral healing facilitates an exploration of your karmic patterns. Together we engage the guidance of your evolved ancestors to clear limiting familial karmic debris.
Q: How many sessions will I need?
A: There is no set number of sessions. Every person is unique and has different needs. Some may feel satisfied with just one session. Others may desire healing and guidance on a more ongoing basis. Your sessions are customized to suit what you are looking for.
