Spiritual Psychotherapy from a Distance!
It has been especially gratifying for me, as a practitioner, to witness a growing number of folks with whom I meet expressing a desire to engage in spiritual work during the time of the COVID-19 pandemic.
By “spiritual work” I mean specifically, participation in talk therapy processes which incorporate techniques such as Guided Visualization, Heart Centered Hypnotherapy, Meditation and Shamanic Reiki/Energy Healing. I imagine that there are many who may be reading this, who have questions about the viability of a practitioner offering Energy Healing in particular, from a distance. If this sounds like you, please read on for more information!
Reiki (the English translation is Universal Life Force Energy) is the modality through which I studied energy healing (nearly 15 years ago), founded by Dr. Mikao Usui, and more holistically understood as the Usui System of Natural Healing. I have so much awe and reverence for this Japanese tradition, and over the years have been inspired to infuse core shamanism techniques into my energy healing work, as they have been shared/passed on to me by different shamanic practitioners.
I am able to offer this type of healing to others by intentionally connecting with my spirit guides and ancestors; cultivating my body in becoming a clear channel by working to keep my vibration as high as possible, making an authentic connection with the person requesting the healing, and capitalizing on a joyful desire to serve in this way! This type of energy knows no bounds, and can travel across time and space easily.
Very important to say is that Reiki energy is not my energy; it is channeled energy. With enough genuine connection and loving motivation anybody is capable of sending healing energy.
While a feeling of deep relaxation is almost universal in Reiki recipients, it should be understood that energy healing operates on the level of mind, body, emotion and spirit, and its effects vary in terms of timing and intensity, from person to person depending upon what is in need of balance. The types of individualized changes and effects a person might notice during a session include tingling, a gentle pressure around the head, throat or heart, and warm or cool sensations that are demonstrably unusual. A person might also experience deep emotions during a session, or gentle shifts occurring around different organs of the body as the chakra energy centers around them become activated to cleanse. On a more mystical note, people sometimes report seeing colors, bright lights, vivid nature scene images, specific animals or deceased loved ones.
Following a session there may be a period of integration (a few weeks) which includes the drawing up to the surface of any matter (body, mind, spirit) a person had previously been less aware of, but which needs to be released in order for change, growth and healing to occur. Additionally, people may start to notice themselves expanding upon their intuitive abilities, feeling less fearful, making decisions more easily, noticing emotional blockages disappear and having more openhearted relationships.
Yes: all of this can be experienced from a distance!
Please consider this brief note regarding distanced based spiritual psychotherapy as an invitation to ask me about energy healing (or any other modality) anytime. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
