Trusting your Intuition

Your Third Eye, the Inner Voice, Your Higher Self, A Sixth Sense.....all different names for one thing we ALL have---intuition.

Sadly--it is not as easy to follow one's intuition as it would seem--and I think this
is something most of us struggle with: trusting what our "inner voice" or intuition tells us---and then following through with it!

We second guess ourselves--a lot. I know personally I do this way too often--even when I know that 9 times out of 10 my intuition is leading me in the right direction.

That is one of the many blessings of being a Reiki practitioner--during each and every Reiki session I get to use my intuition --flexing the third eye muscle and therefore making it stronger.

I use my intuition to tell me what issues need to be addressed for my client, what might help them most and to ascertain any other messages I am supposed to receive on their behalf.

One of the lessons I have been lucky to learn through my Reiki classes is that when in doubt--ask. Ask, ask, ask. By asking questions about things you have a "hunch" about you will start to become more confident in your intuition's communication with you.

For example, a client of mine a few weeks ago had scheduled a standard Reiki Treatment Session. I normally start off my sessions by clearing out the Chakras. While I was clearing out her throat chakra I saw images in my mind's eye of her yelling at her husband--as if they were arguing. Now, this client is a soft-spoken and friendly yoga instructor. This scene was not something I would ever expect to see from her. I didn't want to say anything at first, but then remembered if I didn't ask I would never know if my intuition was right--so I asked her, "Have you been angry lately--perhaps with your kids or other family member?" ( I didn't dare say husband to avoid offending her if I was way off)
and she told me, "Yes, actually, I've been angry with my husband!"

I was right! Later she explained that she normally never yelled but she feels open enough with him to voice her opinions and thoughts--and even raise her voice in an argument. Again--I felt validated.

See, it's a matter of trust.

So, for those who are interested in how to raise their intuition skills a bit, here is what I have learned can help "turn up the volume" of your inner voice.

1. Meditate--whether mantra mediation or just silently paying attention to your breath for 10-15 minutes a day--it helps open your "third eye"

2. Journal--by writing down your thoughts each day you will be able to go back and see where your hunches were correct and begin to gain more confidence in your intuitive abilities

3. Purchase some oracle or angel cards---Doreen Virtue has some great ones as does Dyan Garris--follow the instructions on the card inserts and practice giving yourself and friends some readings--it's quite fun and opens the mind a bit more.

Many Blessings!

Great deal! Buy yourself a session and then give the second session as a gift to your friend or vice versa!

Reiki for the Holdiays!

Hello All & Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas!

This is most definitely a stressful time of year--more now than ever with the economy troubles and uncertainty permeating the air. But, don't fret--Reiki is on the way!

Reiki is an excellent tool for de-stressing and relaxing. In fact, my most common comment from clients is that they felt so relaxed and warm during the session--which oftentimes carries itself into a more restful sleep that evening. This is the perfect time to try a Reiki session! Not only will you feel more relaxed, but it helps move any emotional "debris" out of the body so you get healing and wellness rolled into one.

My rates are very affordable and couldn't come at a better time!

$50 for 50 minute session

$10 discount for all students (with current student I.D.)

Sliding scale for those in need.

Reiki, in my opinion, should be affordable for everyone. This is why I offer more affordable rates--but you still get the same great, professional service!

Often times people wonder why anyone should charge if Reiki itself is a universal energy. The fact is, practitioners are NOT charging for the Reiki, but our personal time for the session and the time, effort and money spent on gaining our certification to Reiki Master.

Also, in the universe it is necessary to have an "energy exchange" after a service is rendered--othewise an "energetic debt" is left and will have to be pulled some other way. This also why I have "service exchanges" available (i.e. massage therapist and I exchange our services for the others) as well as charging.

Bottom line is this: Reiki is healing energy that everyone should be able to experience and I want to be a part of that.
