If my clients have driven a long way to get to my office, I sometimes give them a short tour of the garden. A little moment of nature before a healing is often the perfect transition from road to healing table.

I’ve been reading and thinking about Flow.

What is Flow?

To use Jason Silva’s descriptions from the first video below, it’s that state in which time slows down or speeds up, self vanishes, action and awareness merge. Flow is an effortless state that silences our inner critic.

Abraham Maslow called Flow “a peak experience.” In the 1970s, James Fixx described Flow as “a runner’s high.” Los Angeles Lakers’ coach Phil Jackson calls it “being in the zone” and Miles Davis spoke of it as “being in the pocket.”

As a healer, I call Flow “sacred space”. Sacred space is where healer and client become one, where there is no time, where the more “I” get out of the way, the more effective the session.

I find it fascinating to see how other people are experiencing Flow and how powerful this state is. In the second video, Jamie Wheal tells the story of how his first Flow experience changed him: “I was different. I found what I had been seeking; I was home for the first time in my life.”

Jamie Wheal and Steven Kotler are Co-founders of the Flow Genome Project. Their website states:

“Flow states are now known to optimize performance, enhance creativity, drive innovation, accelerate learning, amplify memory and underpin happiness itself.”

It’s all quite interesting, and I wonder:

Are Healers really Flow Hackers?

As Healing Touch Practitioner Janna Moll writes: “Clients tend to come in batches”*

The latest wave of clients in my healing practice have been contacting me for pain management and healing after surgery.

Post-surgery sessions are where I have seen people cynical of energy work join the Healing Touch fan club. I had friends who would roll their eyes at me when I talked about the benefits of energy work, yet after a post-surgery session they enthusiastically starting referring clients to me.

The most obvious effect of an energy session after surgery is the reduction of physical pain. For ankle and knee surgeries, clients have said they had no pain. It’s quite amazing.

Another incredibly wonderful thing is the clearing of anesthesia from the body, helping reduce nausea and headaches.

The third factor that I find immensely helpful is that Healing Touch helps my client relax and let go of anxiety. This helps them sleep so much better.

I feel like I am on a soap box here, but I can’t help it. Healing Touch and Energy work are SO HELPFUL when recovering from surgery. If you are getting ready to have surgery, find a Healing Touch Practitioner or another energy worker to give you a healing as soon as possible after the surgery. Having a session before surgery is also recommended.

Many hospitals – such as the Kaiser Permanente Walnut Creek Medical Center – have volunteer programs where Healing Touch is readily available. That means it’s free!

Click here for a list of facilities that have Healing Touch. Many nurses are also Healing Touch Practitioners, so ask your Hospital if Healing Touch sessions are available. Click here for a link to Certified Healing Touch Practitioners all over the country.

Energy work makes a difference.

“At Martha’s Healing House”

I have found in my personal healing practice that one of the many benefits of Healing Touch is the release of toxins from the physical body.

I know this may sound crazy to anyone not familiar with energy work, but over the years my clients have consistently reported the physical symptoms of toxins in the body, such as fatigue from medications, headaches from allergies and tightness in the chest from environmental pollution, fall away after a healing. Some people have said they can actually feel chemical exposure or old medication leaving their body during a session.

One man who had been working with toxic cleaners a few days before his healing, reported that after his session his urine was discolored for several days and then he felt amazingly better.

Similarly, clients who have recently been under anesthesia seem to release residual drugs still in their body – especially from chemotherapy. In my last post I wrote about a client who was experiencing withdrawal after going off the pain medication from his surgery. The energy work was very helpful in getting him through the ordeal.

I have worked with two clients who were able to release toxins they traced back to specific environmental events from their childhood. It took a series of sessions in each case, but after the energy work, they feel much stronger and healthier. Clients who relax and release tight muscles during a Healing Touch session often tell me the next day their bodies are sore, as though they have experienced a deep tissue massage.

Most remarkably, a client and I both smelled cigarette smoke during her Healing Touch session, even though the woman had stopped smoking years before.

If you are feeling sluggish, fatigued or you seem to get every cold that comes along, think about trying Healing Touch. Energy work is also a wonderful support when making dietary changes or doing a cleanse or fast. Healing Touch helps the physical body release and return to its natural state of health and equanimity.

Energy work improves quality of life.

Several years ago I supported a client through a major surgery with Healing Touch and Reiki.

Afterwards he became addicted to his medications and, with his doctor’s approval, went off Oxycodone cold turkey. His withdrawal symptoms were severe. Very severe. I had never worked energetically with addiction before, and even I was amazed at how the energy work eased his symptoms.

The first session gave him 4 hours of relief and the second treatment gave him 9 hours of peace. After it was all over, my client said he may not have made it through the ordeal without the energy work.

When I write about specific work with a client, I always send it to him or her before publishing for permission and approval. I don’t want anyone to suddenly find an account of their healing journey online at some odd moment of the day – even if the work happened years before and I don’t use their names.

 

This is what my client wrote back:

“Wow Jeri, this post is such a time capsule. I had forgotten (or completely blocked out) that we’d done energy work associated with my addiction to the meds. In my memory it was just the surgery, but I suppose a huge feature were the meds.  It’s incredible how little of that entire event I even remember.

The only thing I would add to your post is simply that — yes in fact there was a time that somehow you were the ONLY source of relief. I remember at least that very distinctly as being relief from crazy radiant pain both immediately after surgery and months later.  I remember being frustrated by a caravan of remedies — massage,  hundreds of hot baths,  steam, acupuncture, rolfing, you name it.  Sounds like infomercial testimonial, but you remember… the energy work was kind of a miracle.”

I would like to thank my client for taking the time to write this testimonial. She knows who she is.

“When I first started seeing Jeri for Healing Touch the whole process was a mystery to me. As far as I was concerned Jeri’s hands just magically made me feel better and more relaxed. Over the years–and with the benefit of taking a Healing Touch introductory class–I came to understand that I could be a healing force for myself. Of course, nobody does it better than Jeri and I still see her for “tune ups”. But now I now can tell when my energy is getting blocked or stuck and I can do a chakra connection on myself to make sure that energy is flowing. I even do a little healing touch on my partner who doesn’t know what it is but he knows it makes him feel relaxed and fall asleep! I am so grateful to Jeri not only for her healing but also I helping me learn to listen to my own body’s signals.”

Andrea Mutascio RN, BSN, CCRN, CHTP, is a Registered Nurse, Reiki Practitioner and Certified Healing Touch Practitioner. She co-owns Healing Nurses, where you can receive energy work in San Diego, California.

I would like to share Andrea’s journey of how she healed from a Traumatic Brain Injury, and in the process found her life’s work. Click on her photo below to go to her MindBodyGreen website and read her article. Click here to check out her blog. Thank you Andrea, for giving us this inspiring story and your blog is incredible.

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!!!”
