Consciousness Healing Practices
Consciousness healing practices involve a spectrum of services which may include any or all of the following:
See the FAQ page for more information on the parameters of my work.
It is well researched, and continues to be shown, that we are beings of energy possessing multiple levels of consciousness. Accessing various states of consciousness can be done without drugs like psychedelics, which minimally have the side effect of you having to give control over to the substance, and it is these natural, drug-free methods which I practice in healing sessions as well as teach. Ever since humans have been in existence, accessing these altered states of consciousness have been used in healing and continue to be used today - whether we access them via meditation, hypnosis, sound, movement, or other natural means. If you have questions, contact me. If you wish to know more about how I evolved into these practices go here.
Intuitive Healing Sessions
Sometimes we're practicing everything we know that is good for us, or we have consulted all kinds of healers and experts, and what ails us is still a challenge. Sometimes we are living with an existential crisis or difficulty - whether physically-based, emotionally, or spiritually. Sometimes we are seeking healing in any way possible. Sometimes we have an inkling of what may be helpful, but we're unsure to trust it.
These and other reasons are why people seek me out for intuitive healing sessions. The video above gives you a short introduction as to how these work.
We do play a role, and frequently a significant one, in our healing. Often, though, even when we know this, we may feel so depleted, alone, and overwhelmed we cannot access our wisdom and energy within that can help us find the way.
There is a place we need to be connected with inside of ourselves to reach that innate wisdom, and I help people do just that.
In this session, I enter a deep meditative state and intuitively read your physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies. I usually engage in some kind of energy or spiritual healing work for you as well. I also ask your spiritual helpers for recommendations that would be useful to you in your healing at this time. Sometimes these recommendations come in forms of foods to eat, meditative and other practices, journaling, connecting with ancestors, and more. I write my findings up and we discuss them together, where more recommendations may emerge as well. It is possible to do a session in person, and more frequently I do these sessions simply after we meet briefly in person or online, and go into the deep meditative state alone, apart from you. Sessions are $200 for 70 minutes (includes 10 minute brief meeting before, my 30 minutes of my time in the healing state, and 30 minutes discussing results with you). Fee is prorated for longer time which we will discuss and collaborate upon prior to moving forward.
Reiki, full spectrum healing, sound healing, and soul healing are the modalities I use for energy healing. While energy healing can transcend location, and therefore I can do long-distance sessions, some people prefer to come to me in person. Energy healing sessions may be 30, 60 or 90 minutes.
Energy healing such as Reiki has been and continues to be studied as an adjunctive treatment for various medical conditions as well as stress and anxiety. See my Consciousness Resources page for reading material.
It is important to note that energy healing as I practice it does NOT involve touching your body, but when done in person it is positioning hands usually near your body. You are fully clothed, and you either sit on a couch or lie down on a bodywork table.
People come to me for energy healing for the same range of concerns that they may want an intuitive healing session, as well as to assist in coping with medical conditions. The difference with an Energy Healing session is that I am not intentionally reading you, or intentionally calling in recommendations, therefore I do not write up results like I do with intuitive healing sessions. These things sometimes spontaneously happen in an energy session, and if they do occur, I will share them with you. A 60-minute session is $150, prorated for shorter or longer time.
Practices & Mentoring
Though I continue my work offering healing services, I also help others by teaching these practices and mentoring. This is for people who are interested in developing their abilities for self-healing, deepening -- or simply beginning -- a relationship integrating their mind, body, and spirit, learning to maximize their intuitive capabilities, and gaining practices to access states of consciousness that are transformative naturally.
Read more what I mean by healing here and continue reading below for more details of what practices & mentoring with me looks like.
Practices that I mentor people with are well-known throughout the world to support the maximization of our healing capacities and expansion of consciousness.
If you're familiar at all with expansion of consciousness, or consciousness studies in general, you know that these things are also closely related to quantum physics. You also know that the kind of abilities I am talking about are in every cultural sphere of the world throughout time. Accessing expansion into various states of consciousness includes can be done via meditation, use of sensory tools, and learning steps to take to improve intuition, cultivate a relationship to spirit within and without you, and developing greater self-healing capabilities. If you are a person wanting to read more about these very real abilities that anyone can cultivate, see my resource list.
I offer mentoring, in 4, 6, or 8 session formats of 60 minutes each at $150 per session. I work with you to set goals. Mentoring includes instruction, home practice, empowering your confidence, and processing your practice experiences.
There are some requirements to embark on mentoring sessions, something we can discuss prior to our first meeting via phone or video. If you are interested in practices & mentoring, contact me.
What is Healing?
is a life long path
of tending to
mind, body, and spirit
Healing is about wholeness. It is the light and shadow of ourselves in its entirety, and being able to hold, acknowledge, and love ourselves. It can be about meaning, or balance too – or practicing balance is more accurate. Certainly, it includes self-compassion for compassion starts at home. All of these things are not static, but always moving, energetic – and sometimes we are living more in alignment with our wholeness, with our soul leading, and sometimes less so. But living in a healing relationship to ourselves is also about non-judgment; we are human after all. So sometimes we are in alignment, sometimes off-kilter. Just is.
Further, healing is also about relationship of ourselves to our environment, including the other beings around us – whether plants, children, animals, or the very air we breathe. Each of us has inclinations of what we are drawn toward or feel particular affiliation for so perhaps we focus on that to which we are drawn to the most – say, children, or our pets. Nonetheless living in a healing way includes our environment as well.
Healing is not about curing. Curing suggests that there is something “wrong” that needs “fixing.” Additionally, some of that word’s earliest origins focus on the remission of disease. Our traditional medicine and mental health systems focus on pathogenesis -- that which is wrong. What I am talking about is entirely different: salutogenesis, that which promotes wholeness, healing, and alignment within our mind, body, and spirit.
For my adult life I have worked with young adults to the very old living with all kinds of medical conditions, pain, and disabilities – as well as emotional difficulties and spiritual ones. I have worked with the dying since I was a teen. I find that people in these circumstances understandably – at least the ones I have encountered whether ‘randomly’ or in medical hospitals, hospice, or in my current work – don’t want to fool around with New Age ideas that I also happen to not relate to – like ‘choosing’ your illness. That dogma does serious psychological harm. What anyone wants is suffering to end. We all can practice in the path of healing: how we can promote wholeness on every level of ourselves.
We can be dying and healing at the same time. Healing is quality of life. Healing includes empowerment. Helplessness accompanies so much suffering. Again, naturally. The cause of suffering was some contingency out of our control. So empowering people to be in healing relationship to themselves; to recognize their soul; to be curiously compassionate about all the parts of themselves – and so on – is also part of my perspective of healing.
