Astrology and Healing

horoscopeAstrology is more than just your horoscope and your sun sign. The energies of the planets have a profound impact on everyone. Besides being the auto pilot of the universe, there are aspects of astrology that can be used on a small-scale as a tool to do inner work.

If you have a birth chart, make note of the degree and sign your moon is in. The moon represents past emotions, and every month as the moon returns to this position you have what is called a lunar return. Metaphysically what is happening is that the energy of the moon resonates with a suppressed emotion. Continue reading

Essential Oils for the Winter Months.

Mother Nature has provided us with all the tools we need to feed ourselves, to clothe ourselves, to build shelters, and yes… even to heal ourselves. That is not to say that modern day medicine does not have its place; however combining Mother Nature’s gifts with modern medicine is quite powerful.

Many of the drugs that are developed are actually inspired by Mother Nature as well. Aspirin is a great example. It is found naturally in wintergreen, birch, willow bark, and others. Other drugs like morphine and codeine also have their origins in Mother Nature. Continue reading

Reiki: Healing at the Core Level

HealingHandsReiki has emerged as one of the best known modalities in the field of energy medicine, along with homeopathy and acupuncture.

People learn Reiki for a number of different reasons. It may surprise you to know that the majority of people who attend Reiki training have no intention of becoming practitioners in the strictest sense of the word. Some simply want to practice self-treatment. Some use it as an intro to the energetic healing arts. Some Western medicine practitioners see it as an initial step in transitioning from an allopathic into an integrative or holistic career. Others are interested in helping family and friends, or perhaps working as volunteers for the ill and those in transition who would benefit from end of life care. Continue reading

Daniella’s Story: Coming Into Her Own Power

FranMandalaDaniella* first came to see me about a year and a half ago. Her complaints were mainly physical- she had stomach aches and low energy, but she couldn’t seem to put into words exactly why she was there. She seemed troubled and dark.

In the initial assessment I noticed that her upper chakras were well developed, but the first three (root, sacral, solar plexus) were in need of support and her heart seemed guarded. I should note that it is quite typical for my clients to have more powerful upper chakras then lower chakras. For the most part they are spiritually and psychically secure- even advanced in many cases, but a number of them struggle with “earth stuff”. Daniella was no exception. Continue reading

Do you need a tune up?

RoomA human being is a sum of various parts, most notable are the Body, Mind, and Soul. The Soul is the inspiration, the mind is the interpretation, and the Body is the instrument used to conduct the symphony we call manifestation. These three parts interact with each other, and function individually, and in unison. If one of these is off, they are all off.

 So what does one do when you are clearly out of alignment? For that matter, how do you even know you are out of alignment? Sometimes it is important to take a step back, and really look at what you are doing AND what you are not doing. If you are in tune with your whole being, body, mind and soul, your actions and creations will reflect that. Think of a chef. With the same ingredients they can create chicken pot pie, or chicken coq au vin. If it is your souls passion to feed people, you may create a soup kitchen. The mind may interpret incorrectly and lead the person to opening a hot dog cart. Continue reading

Brenda’s Story: “Are there options?”

optionsI knew Brenda* for several years before she asked to have a session, although her husband had been coming on and off for about ten years.  An active father of two boys he’d get a pain in his back or neck every now and then and he said massage and chiropractic just didn’t help the way energy medicine did.  In addition, their younger son came on one occasion. A spinal tap when he was little had left him with constant pain radiating down both legs.  When he began playing football in high school the problem became more serious, and I could tell that it worried Brenda. During our one session together he felt the pain, experienced as mild electrical shocks, leave his body.  That was about eight years ago, and Brenda says the pain has never returned.
