Sometimes receiving a series of energy sessions can help you become more aware of your own intuitive abilities. Over the years, many of my clients have opened up to a whole new way of being in the world after rebalancing their energy system. Highly intuitive people often realize the depth of their natural gifts only after more conventional structures and life strategies have collapsed.

A collapse can be brutal in the moment it occurs and is often experienced as a failure. Yet, an event that may have been viewed as a “breakdown” may come to be recognized as a “breakthrough”. A crisis is that point in your life when you finally had to create a more suitable path that allows you to be who really are.

Below is a testimony from a client who realized she had already started navigating through the world using her intuition, as well as her logical mind. This really helped her more clearly perceive her own inner guidance and trust her own decisions:

 “Jeri has been an amazing resource for me. She has help me to find my intuitive self as well as understand my body and mind connection. Having knowledge about this has helped me discover possible new paths in my life in order to live in a more divergent manner. In addition, she has helped reduce my anxiety over the last six months which had been plaguing me for over a year. Thank you Jeri!!!”

It’s been awhile since I posted some music for healing work. I just found a fantastic CD that was released in 2000. Why did it take me so long to find it? I’ve been playing this music almost every day for the last few weeks.

In my healing practice, the music I select for each treatment is an important part of establishing the frequency or sacred space, of the session. For me, music also keeps that space grounded in “real-time” as the healing unfolds on whatever level the client needs.

 

Enjoy.

Anita Moorjani is always spot on.

In this article for Huffpost she writes about  “4 Myths That Keep You From Living Fully And Fearlessly”. Here is a quote from the article:

“…One of the biggest lessons I learned from nearly dying of cancer is the importance of loving myself unconditionally. In fact, learning to love and accept myself unconditionally is what healed me and brought me back from the brink of death. During my workshops and speeches, I often tell the audience to “Love yourself like your life depends on it, because it does!”

Here is her TedxBayArea talk.  In the  first 2:50 minutes of this clip, she talks about her death and starts describing her “expanded awareness” afterwards. This video is really worth the eighteen minutes and five seconds it takes to watch it.

I am greatly inspired by Anita. I hope you enjoy the links.

IMG_4061In my healing practice, mental healing often takes the form of a subtle “falling away” of problems, obsessive thinking and worry. Sometimes my clients are not aware of the benefits of their Healing Touch session until days afterwards. This is one reason I have learned to trust that whatever happens in the session is perfect.

When giving a series of treatments, I usually ask my clients at the start of their healing if they noticed any significant shifts from the previous session. It’s often only then that they realize an issue that they were preoccupied with previously did not resurface. Frequently, being asked the question is what prompts them to realize their shift.

What actually causes the healing? I really don’t know for sure. I use many Healing Touch techniques in my sessions to rebalance my clients’ energy, yet I think fundamentally it has to do with the experience of being in sacred space.

What is sacred space? Eckhart Tolle calls it presence. In The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment he writes,

“All negativity is caused by an accumulation of psychological time and denial of the present. Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry – all forms of fear – are caused by too much future, and not enough presence.”

In my healing sessions my clients return to this presence, this sacred space, and it is in this space that they heal themselves.

In the last half of 2014, many of my new clients came to try Healing Touch because they were suffering from anxiety, panic attacks and/or trauma. I have to admit, even I was surprised at how effective Healing Touch has been for these clients.

Here is a testimony from a man who had been experiencing debilitating anxiety for years:

“I was suffering from extreme anxiety and insomnia when a friend referred me to Jeri.  From the very first session I left feeling free from anxiety for the first time in many months. Jeri told me that the anxiety might come back, but that with each session I wold experience longer periods of feeling calm and anxiety-free. She was absolutely correct. After four sessions the bouts of anxiety became so infrequent that I was able to transition to seeing Jeri every month or so for a “tune up”. I am also able to sleep again. Going to Jeri was a life changing experience for me and words can’t begin to express how grateful I am to her and Healing Touch.”

There are many sessions in which I sense my client has healed themselves in the first 5 minutes. Being able to HOLD the new level of consciousness, vibration, or groundedness and stay healed becomes the focus of these energetic sessions.

I have had clients that have only needed one Healing Touch session, but more often, it takes a short series of sessions. Each one builds on the next to assist my client in reaching their new level of alignment and vibration. Check out an older post I wrote: A Healing Pattern.

My energy-blog-writing hero and fellow Healing Touch Practitioner Barbara J. Litchfield said it best in her post: Energy Therapy Changes the Energetic Pattern. I have shared this with you before in another post, but it is so good, I might just have to share it with you in the future, too.

We have an amazing and profound capacity to heal ourselves physically, mentally and emotionally when we come into energetic alignment. We really do.

I see it happen every day.

This is a super sweet cartoon of a young child who approaches a Master Guru and asks to gain control of the “Avatar State”.

He is told “You must bring balance to yourself, before you can bring balance to the world.”

Being balanced means he has to open all his chakras.

I just love the fact that our culture (cartoons, TV shows, young-adult fiction) is addressing these energetic principles of personal balance. This is a children’s TV show!

Take this ten minute journey with our little friend as he clears his chakras by first facing his fear. As he continues up the chakras, he releases guilt, shame, grief and denial. He continues on to realize the connectedness of all things, gains control of his thoughts and releases earthly attachments so he can connect with his higher self. A real action-packed adventure.

Remember that you can balance your energy field by getting a hands-on-healing. You can also easily learn to do treatments on yourself.

Be an Avatar!

I would like to thank my Healing Touch colleague Maryanne Mitchell for bringing this little gem of a cartoon to my attention. Thanks Maryanne!!!!

Janna Moll, MSN, HTCP/I, CMT

Janna Moll teaches an advanced course for experienced Energy Practitioners called Advanced Chakra Diagnosis and Treatment. I took this class about three months ago and immediately started working with much of the new material and techniques in my Healing Practice. This class is incredibly practical and significantly deepened my understanding of the energy system. I highly recommend this course.

Janna Moll is the founder and President of Energy Medicine Specialists, an organization that offers beginner to advanced practice coursework in the field of Energy Medicine. She also has a private practice in Highlands Ranch Colorado, called the Heart Healing Center. In her energy practice, she combines her training in multiple energy disciplines that include Healing Touch, Reiki, Polarity, Pranic, Reconnection, EFT, Therapeutic Touch, psychotherapy and coaching.

"Janna's Board"

“Janna’s Board”

Janna Moll studied Healing Touch with founder Janet Mentgen, and has studied with about every healer in the book. She is not shy about sharing her ideas and opinions in class, or at lunch, about what works in her practice and what doesn’t. For me, this alone was quite helpful on many levels.

 

Clarity. Janna Moll has clarity.

 

In this short post I will contain my enthusiasm for this class to three other main points:

One: This class significantly shifted my working model of the chakra system. Janna works with scientist Dale Ferg, who contributed much of the physics research in EMS courses. I am not going to go into the details here, but my perception of the chakras changed. I have to admit that this was a little unnerving the first day, yet this was the second biggest take-away from the class for me. My “new” perception of the chakra system is giving me more information in my client’s sessions.

Two: The healings I received in this class were exceptionally profound for me. Maybe I just really needed the energy work or maybe I was just ready to go to my next level. Everyone in the class gave and received different types of treatments all three days and I also heard many of the other practitioners say the same thing about their healings.  Janna Moll and class coordinator Grace Gowan created and sustained an exceptional energetic container for the class.

Three:  Janna Moll is a fireball. Three days with Janna Moll is super fun. I know “fun” is not a requirement for an advanced energetic healing class, but hey, three days is a long time and I think it’s important to know what you are getting into.

I would like to thank Grace Gowan in Sunnyvale for coordinating this class. Grace will also be coordinating the Advanced Hara Diagnosis and Treatment for Janna in 2015. Dates will soon be posted on Janna’s website.

I can’t wait!

This August, I attended the 2014 Healing Touch Worldwide Conference in Schaumburg, Illinois. There were over 350 Healing Touch Practitioners attending from all over the world, including Canada and Japan. There are many parts of the conference I plan to write about, but the most profound was the transition of our respected elder, leader and cherished community member, Sharon Robbins, RN, HN-BC, CCHt, HTCP.

Sharon Robbins was the Executive Director of the Healing Touch Professional Association. She started as a Holistic Nurse in private practice offering Complementary and Alternative Medical therapies to her clients. She began studying energy medicine in 1992 and became a certified Holistic Nurse and  certified Healing Touch Practitioner in 1998. Sharon was the Chair and/or Co-Chair of the HTI Business Council from 2001 to 2007 and was a Board Member of Healing Touch Worldwide Foundation, Inc. since 2006. Sharon Robbins also founded Healing Touch California with a small group of other Healing Touch practitioners.

I became aware of Sharon Robbins as soon as I realized there was this vast and supportive Healing Touch Community. I did not know Sharon well personally, yet I felt greatly supported by her work, deeply touched by her death and immensely inspired by her life.

Sharon modeled professionalism. As a healer, being professional provides the guidelines I need to bring energetic healing into the world, as well as how to present myself to our medical culture. Professionalism has brought great clarity to my work as a healer. When I had any questions about how to approach a healing situation responsibly, the first person I called was Sharon Robbins.

At the conference on Friday morning, Sharon was dressed as an angel. She brought angel wings to wear in a skit on ethics in our healing practice. She was the fairy godmother in the skit, who came down to give guidance to a beginning healer.

After breakfast on Sunday morning, Dawn Warnaca bravely and beautifully announced to all 350 of us that Sharon had made her transition overnight. When I fully realized what Dawn was saying, it felt like the floor just dropped away and the ceiling opened up. Soon there were pictures of Sharon with her angel wings, on the projection screens in front of us.

It was so surreal. Sharon was so ALIVE on Saturday. I have never experienced someone so fully engaged and present in the moment, suddenly just vanish. Sharon always had perfect blond hair that reflected light well. She was literally shining the day before.

Throughout the rest of Sunday, Cynthia Hutchinson (Healing Touch Program Director) and Lisa Mentgen-Gordon (CEO of Healing Touch and the Healing Touch founder’s daughter), shared more about Sharon and the rituals that they had honored her with early that morning. They were obviously heart-broken over losing someone they had loved and worked with so closely over the last 20 years, yet so professional and sensitive in the handling of the situation. I cannot imagine the shock and grief they felt that morning.

My heart, that Sunday, just opened up. I will never take another day in my life for granted. Even now, as I write this blog post weeks later, I can still feel the energetic shift is now a part of me. It now almost feels like a blessing. Life is so precious.

When I put all my emotions and sadness aside, I can see the beauty that in her last day on earth Sharon was surrounded by over 350 Healing Touch Practitioners and friends, celebrating what she loved.

Thank you Sharon, for all the energy, commitment and love you poured into our Healing Touch Community. I will benefit from it for the rest of my life and will do my best to carry your spirit forward in my Healing Touch work.

With Laurie Ratto at the California Healing Touch Conference

With Laurie Ratto at the California Healing Touch Conference

I am part of a community of Healing Touch Practitioners who live and work throughout the Bay Area. This community is a continual source of inspiration and support for me in my healing practice. Today I would like to share an article written by my colleague Laurie Ratto,“Healing Touch Helps Those with Cancer”.

Laurie Ratto has a private Aromatherapy and Healing Touch Practice in Alameda, California. She is also a RN. In this article Laurie mentions our volunteer work as Healing Touch Practitioners at the Charlotte Maxwell Clinic. While she writes about my success with neuropathy in my private practice, it was one of Laurie’s sessions at Charlotte Maxwell that made me first realize how beneficial Healing Touch could be for my clients going through Chemotherapy.

I am not an isolated healer. I am part of a dynamic, enthusiastic, heart-centered group of healers who are creating a new paradigm of possibilities. These are exciting times.

Enjoy Laurie’s article.
