There is something very profound that happens emotionally when deep relaxation occurs in a healing session. I don’t fully understand it, yet I watch it happen daily in my practice and see how much my clients benefit from it.
My clients usually come for a Healing Touch session for relief of physical pain. Yet in the last few months, I have had clients who came to specifically address emotional issues that they wanted to release and resolve.
Healing Touch is one of the most subtle healing modalities there is and that includes gentle emotional balancing and release. A Healing Touch session is safe, non-invasive and very comforting for anyone in a very fragile and vulnerable state.
Emotional release in my Healing Touch sessions is most often quite subtle. Most Healing Touch sessions are immediately experienced by my clients as relaxing and extremely peaceful. Such a deep state of relaxation is a different state of consciousness, or several states of consciousness that have profound healing effects on the mind, body and spirit.
While supporting clients through a surgery or other physical condition with a series of healings, many clients have appeared to resolve long-term emotional issues. They report back after the session, sometimes emailing months (even years!) later that issues that once obsessed or triggered them just don’t seem that important anymore. This emotional resolution had not been my focus while I was working with them; As an energetic healer my goal was to balance their energy field so they could self-heal. Obviously a balanced energy field can facilitate even deeper healing and emotional release.
The more I learn about healing, the more I find there is to understand. Healing continues to be a mystery to me. I hold space for this mystery daily with complete trust that what ever needs to happen will happen and that it is indeed all good.

One obvious and external change was moving my healing space outside my home after 18 years of business. Getting settled in the new space was a huge and mostly graceful transition energetically, emotionally and financially. I love “going” to work and I love “going” home. This move has definitely brought more clarity to many aspects of my life.
Yet the internal shifts of 2012 feel even more significant. I experience the world and my work as healer very differently now. My previous focus as an energetic practitioner was to understand everything I could about healing, so I could help my clients by being the best healer I possibly could be.
Yet the more I kept learning about energetic healing, the less I realized I actually knew about how healing works. My desire to understand the mystery of healing is now a clear intention to hold space for the mystery of healing to happen. A very subtle, yet very profound shift.
In the last few months of 2012 this shift has set the stage for some pretty incredible sessions. Some of these sessions were quite dramatic and others appeared much more subtle, yet they created deep and profound healing for my clients. There is so much to share in this new wonderful year of 2013!

Belleruth Naparstek is a pioneer in the field of guided imagery and many of my Healing Touch colleagues have been raving about her CDs for years. If you don’t know about her work then you are in for a treat when you view this video!
I personally find her voice incredibly soothing and grounding. Belleruth has an effective blend of practical affirmations and energetic suggestions in her meditations that are precisely written and beautifully executed. They are also very accessible to a wide range of clients.
Below is a description of Guided Imagery from her website:
Guided Imagery is a kind of deliberate, directed daydreaming that uses soothing music and narrative to evoke multisensory memory, symbol and fantasy. This combination gently guides the overactive mind into a relaxed, immersive state of healing reverie. It works easily and powerfully for most people, and doesn’t require much from them – just some basic imagination. Many people who have trouble meditating or relaxing do really well with guided imagery.
I highly recommend the first CD in her two CD set “Meditations To Promote Successful Surgery” when you want to relax and visualize a successful operation of any kind. This is the best CD I have found to help you prepare for surgery. The second CD in the set is music only, and while I know many healers who use this music CD quite a bit, I find it a little too repetitive. You should check it out for yourself.
Belleruth has guided imagery CD’s for headaches, depression, weight loss, post traumatic stress, panic attacks… she pretty much covers everything. Her online store is an excellent resource, especially when you want to address specific issues.
Enjoy this moving video of Belleruth doing a guided meditation for stress release.
“The ability to be in the present moment is a major component of mental wellness.” –Abraham Maslow
“Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry — all forms of fear — are caused by too much future, and not enough presence. Guilt, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms of nonforgiveness are caused by too much past, and not enough presence.”–Eckhart Tolle
“Living in the present moment creates the experience of eternity.”–Deepak Chopra
You hear a lot about “being present” and “being in the moment”. How do you know if you are “present”? Maybe you feel that you are not as present in your life as you could be, but how do you “get present”?
One way is to meditate.
Another way is to get a Healing Touch Session. I have witnessed so many clients make incredible shifts in their life because they felt what it was like to be more present. Being present and being in the moment is something you have to experience to understand, a tangible difference you can feel from before the session to after the session. Once you know what being present feels like, it is SO much easier to get back there. It is also easier to go deeper into it.
“You cannot be both unhappy and fully present in the Now.”–Eckhart Tolle
