Embracing the Mystery of Energy Healing Work – by Deborah Raku

wellness-reiki-energy-healing-sessionWhat is Energy Healing?

Energy Healing work seems a bit mysterious to me. It always has. But although I can’t say I understand it, I do have a lot of experience doing sessions.

I have found that each session is unique, and what will happen during the session can never be predicted in advance. Often spirits, guides, or masters show up to help. But most importantly, it seems that each session does what that client needs most at that time. If that sounds crazy and cool, then let me say that I agree!

Some things do happen with regularity. The client is very likely to feel very peaceful and relaxed after the session – sometimes lasting for days. In addition there are likely to be physical sensations – tingling, heat, pressure, feelings of being touched when not being touched. The client may feel intense emotion or may have spiritual or mental insights. What happens for me during a session is that I feel the energy coming through and I usually also get visions of what is being worked on.

I always ask my client what happened after the session because I like to see if our experiences matched. Often they do. For me getting that feedback has helped me to realize how real (even though mysterious!) energy work is. It is tangible and transformative work that can help clear up emotional blockages, help alleviate addictions, ease physical issues, open the client up psychically, soothe fears, help the client recognize their life’s purpose, and help remind the client that they are loved just as they are.

I share what visions or impressions I got with the client after the session. In addition to the actual energy work session, I feel that this time adds another healing aspect to the energy work session and can further help the client to get the most from the work. Sometimes these visions or this information will be in the form of “homework” advice for the client to do to continue to get the benefits from the session. Sometimes the visions will help them to discover their unique purpose, enable them to recognize and release stress, or give them a creative push.

How I Started on this Mysterious Adventure

I began doing energy healing work after I experienced an intense energetic blast in Sedona, AZ in 1996. That event changed my life and put me on this part of my life’s path. After the event in Sedona, I began learning all I could about energy work and received formal training in Reiki and in Reconnective Healing. Although all my earlier roads, of course, led to here, I feel that doing this work is my main purpose in this lifetime. I couldn’t ask for a more wonderful and rewarding way to help others and myself. This work teaches me something new and inspiring about what it means to be human during every session.

Some of my Favorite Sessions from the Metaphysical Fairs

I love doing the sessions in a quiet and calm setting, but to my surprise I have found that at the metaphysical fairs, even with the shorter sessions, bright lights and background noise, I have had some of my most amazing sessions.

Here are some examples from fair sessions:

(Some identities have been slightly changed to ensure confidentiality.)

An older gentleman with long gray hair felt his heart open so much that he felt he was finally ready to be available in his relationship. As it passed through me, I felt the beauty and compassion so much that in the next few days, whenever something would touch my heartstrings, tears were not far behind. It was a great gift for me, too.

A woman employed in a technical field who always encouraged her coworkers to “play,” was told that this was her great gift in this lifetime. Instead of feeling guilty about it she realized that she was a great employee, very successful, and in addition was able to make the workplace a happier and more productive one. Her gift of “play,” since she used it well, benefited the company. I could see that this information lightened her spirits immensely.

Early during one session I could “see” that the client had habitual, almost obsessive, thought patterns. She worried about the same things over and over. My guides worked on this and cleared a lot of it out. They also gave her “homework” on what she could do to calm her thoughts whenever needed. They said she could place her attention on her crown or her heart chakra to calm her thoughts.

In another session I could sense that the client was carrying a lot of grief. It seemed to me that she had lost a baby. In fact, she had lost her teenage daughter years earlier, but since it was her youngest, she always thought of this child as her baby. This, of course, is something a mother cannot “get over,” but I could see that this got worked on during the session, and I think that it helped release and heal some of that emotion.

Final Thoughts

I hope this gives you an idea of what energy healing work is all about and what it might do for you. If you find you are really interested and curious, then I urge you to find an energy healer that you resonate with and have a session. There are many dedicated workers and many modalities to choose from. I believe that all energy workers bring their own special gifts to their practice and all work from the same place of compassion and desire to be of service. If you follow your intuition, you will find just what you need.

Thanks for reading!

Palmistry and Relationships – by Joe Nicols

Palmistry has been traced back several thousand years to pre-vedic India.

find-palmistry-at-metaphysical-life-expoI practice rational or scientific palmistry, which relates to the interpretation of the actual lines and structures in the hand, as opposed to using the palm purely as a psychic movie screen similar to “scrying” with a crystal ball. Rational palmistry covers most major areas of a person’s life, including relationships.

Where to start?

In interpreting the indicators in the palm, it is important to determine which hand is dominant, and in about 85% of folks it is the right hand. If the person is ambidextrous, [Read more…]

A Bell and A Pomegranate: How to Find Balance! – by Rev. Eva Lott

fruit-pomagranate-plantThere is a story in the Old Testament in the book of Exodus about how the Holy Priests were to dress. 

Specific instructions were given as to the design of their vestments.  The hemline of the garment, and how it was to be decorated, is the part that I’m writing about today.

The hemline was to be adorned with “a bell, and a pomegranate, a bell, and a pomegranate” roundabout the hem.  It made for a lovely symmetrical design, but more than that, it carried a message that we can still interpret today to have meaning for our lives.

There was an energy or a rhythm to the flow of the garment that had the weights at the bottom, suggesting that there was purpose in the design.  My understanding is that the bell could symbolize a gift, and the pomegranate a fruit.  The reason this is significant for spiritual development is because the concept is about balancing the practical elements we have to work with.

I first became interested in understanding the importance of this design when I connected the writings of the new testament references to the “gifts of the Spirit” and the “fruits of the Spirit.”  A closer examination revealed that there were nine gifts and nine fruits.

I Corinthians 12 lists the gifts as: 

  1. Word of Wisdom
  2. Word of Knowledge
  3. Faith
  4. Healings
  5. Working of Miracles
  6. Prophecy
  7. Discerning of Spirits
  8. Different Kinds of Tongues
  9. Interpretation of Tongues

Galatians 5 lists the fruits as:

  1. Love
  2. Joy
  3. Peace
  4. Longsuffering
  5. Kindness
  6. Goodness
  7. Faithfulness
  8. Gentleness
  9. Self Control

I began to understand that the significance of having a balance in my life as related to my understanding and use of spiritual gifts was tempered by the outworking of my character, or my soul’s expression of values.

This really came home for me when reading the “Love Chapter,” Corinthians 13, where it states that I can have all the gifts but that if I don’t have Love, then I am just making a lot of noise like a clanging cymbal.

At the soul level, we understand this to mean that the person who allows their ego to be inflated by the awareness of their spiritual giftedness will be off-balanced.

Our service to others in this lifetime can flow with the knowledge that we are able to balance the outworking and manifestations we seek by practicing the expression of Love as we allow our gifts to be experienced through us.

The History of the Orgone Ennergem – by Dian Mahaffey

Dian Mahhaffey - Ennergems - at Austin Metaphysical and Holistic Life EXPOIn the late 1930s, a doctor and scientist named Wilhelm Reich posited that an unseen energy permeates the Universe.

He called that energy Orgone.

He discovered that orgone energy exists in two states, Dead Orgone (DOR) and Positive Orgone (POR). His research concluded that Dead Orgone (DOR) is bad for living beings and creates sickness and disease, while Positive Orgone (POR) promotes wellness and health.

Dr. Reich discovered that layers of organic (carbon containing) material, alternating with layers of inorganic (metal) material would create an effect that balanced DOR and POR in the immediate environment.

In the late 1990s, other researchers (Don Croft at educate-yourself.org, for one) began creating a matrix with the same properties, mixing epoxy resin (the organic layer) with metal shavings (the inorganic layer) to create Positive Orgone (POR). Quartz crystals were added to increase the intensity of the field generated and to create devices that actually transformed the DOR into POR, instead of just balancing them.

Dead Orgone (DOR) produces [Read more…]

How to Choose a Tarot Deck – by Kate Braun

Choosing a Tarot deck can be a daunting process. There are so many different designs, artists, and themes.

How To Choose A Tarot DeckYou may “Google” various sites that will show you pictures of the individual cards in various decks; you may observe the various decks various Tarot readers use at Metaphysical Fairs and ask those practitioners why they chose a particular deck; but ultimately you should select the deck that most appeals to you. You should also be prepared to try a different deck if your choice doesn’t work for you as you hoped it would.

P.D. Ouspensky’s The Symbolism of the Tarot says that Tarot can interface with other metaphysical systems such as astrology, numerology, alchemy, and Kabballah. Some decks include symbols for other metaphysical systems [Read more…]

Soul-Speak: Connecting to Your Inner Self – by Leslie Werling

Yoga, Meditation, Inner SelfWhen the soul speaks it can take on any language, any form.

It can be an act, a phrase, an image, a voice. For each of us it is familiar, powerful, loving and kind.

It is our Truth.

To fully achieve this blessed connection takes a quiet mind and an open heart.

Doing so is not a gift or an act that one person deserves more so than another, but a connection we should all aim to achieve. It is within this realm that all of our answers lie, where healing awaits and understanding grows. [Read more…]

Gifts from Lemuria – by Teri Van Horn

Gifts From Lemuria - by Teri Van Horn - Learn more about Lemuria and Atlantis
Throughout history, we’ve heard about how magnificent Atlantis was.

That it was this magical island, where humanity was extremely advanced and where we first learned to work with the energy of crystals, as well as being the originators of the Mystery School teachings of the Hindu, Mesopotamian, Egyptian, Greek, Roman, and Western European civilizations.

It’s been ‘common knowledge’ that Atlantean and Lemurian cultures have existed in excess of ten thousand years ago. However, I’ve learned over the years, that many of the things that we’ve learned about Atlantis and her sister island, Lemuria, were very different. [Read more…]
