Years ago when I started dipping into the New Age world and energy therapy (which turns out, is not so new aged) I was very judgmental. Although I was interested in learning new ways of thinking I also tended to believe anything other than what I already knew was hokey. And by hokey, I mean I didn’t understand it and because of that, it made me uncomfortable. I didn’t want to be one of “those” people who lived in what felt like an alternative reality and looked for answers outside of the mainstream way of life…you know, to suffer and push through frustrated and lost, and become angry at myself for not being able to figure out why I couldn’t get balanced...mainstream. I was too grounded in my personal reality to look outside of what I could touch and manipulate. Yet, I was curious and enamored with those who spoke of living in faith and with ease. I really had no idea what those words meant either. And the truth was, that hokey life kept following me around and had me questioning what it was all about. So I asked.
And just as the faithful Genie of the Universe always provides us with wishes, the Genie also provides us with answers. Once I was willing to open my mind and release my judgment, my answers came pouring in. Through various chance events, I was given one example and opportunity after another to learn and discover for myself what energy therapy was all about. I started to learn through classes and practice and more classes and more practice and now, I know because I feel it and live it. And from my learned perspective, I pass on my understanding to you.
It’s actually quite simple. Our world is made of energy, as are we. Although our lives are pretty amazing in their makeup with our ability to transition, adapt and transform, we have many experiences which feel like they set us back along the way.
For example, you are going along living your life, enjoying the moments that accompany you. Your river of life is flowing downstream at an easy pace and the little rocks and side brooks are interesting blips in your day, but you can typically easily wash over them or redirect yourself back to the main stream. As your going along, experiences, like sadness from hearing bad news about a friend or family member, or getting lost on your way to someplace new and feeling nervous, anticipating an important meeting that feels like it can impact your career, getting in an argument with someone you love, worrying about your children and their safety, etc. are those little rocks and side streams. Most of us have decent defense mechanisms, skills and game plans to deal with the discomfort, but still, it slows down the flow of the river of life.
Not only do we all experience the little rocks and side streams, but many of us bump into larger rocks and bigger streams which split our easy flow. Choosing which direction to go is not always easy and sometimes we let our waters rest in a pool until we decide which way we want to move. Life experiences like verbal abuse (both giving and receiving), consistent worrisome, depressive and hopeless thoughts and feelings of being stuck and not knowing which direction to go are all examples of these larger rocks, secondary streams and pools that really slow down our flow and our ability to move freely. At times, our flow becomes so slow that it may even start to naturally create its own barriers and dams because we become so stagnant and unfiltered.
This flow, our river of life, is our energy and its ability to move easily is essential in our everyday physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. When it becomes stuck we can experience feelings and symptoms of depression, anxiety, and anger. Along with those emotional triggers come accompanying physical aches and pains and various ailments. If we don’t find ways to unblock our flow, we begin to stop living a life of comfort and ease and the quality of our lives diminish.
Of course, the goal is not to react when our flow becomes stuck, but to notice when it starts to slow down and we intuitively sense a need to change what we are doing or that we could use some help to get our feelings and emotions back into a comfortable balance. This is where energy therapy comes in. Energy therapy, in whatever form it’s practiced, is meant to help open up the flow and get our groove back.
The healing modality I practice is Integrated Energy Therapy, using the vibration of angelic energy. During a healing therapy session, I channel (allow the energy from the angels go through me to someone else) the energy flow to my client. We then pull out old, stagnant energy that gets stuck or slowed in the energy field and integrate positive, empowerment energy back in to the energy field to get ourselves moving and kicking again. I also read (sense and feel) the energy field for blocks and areas that need some attention and am very eager to tell my clients exactly what they may want to tweak to step out of the old thought and behavior patterns that have been created over time. This is where my skills as a counselor come in to play the most because I have a great deal of experience and understanding in where these blocks come from (and probably too many suggestions on how to get through them).
We also tap into the soul star (our soul, higher self, inner world, etc) and re-energize the connection we have to ourselves. Once we clear the energy field, it’s so much easier to reconnect with ourselves and so very important! It often gives us a clearer picture of who we are and why we are here living this life.

At the end of the session, the recipient feels relaxed, peaceful, clear headed and with an awareness that is either a reminder or a brand new way of looking at life and their patterns. Its then up to the client as to what they want to do with this information and awareness. It’s actually quite awesome how good it feels to clear out our stuck energy and let the good stuff flow. So refreshing, invigorating and empowering!
Healing therapy sessions can be conducted in person or remotely over the phone and are typically an hour in length. The only thing you need to do is be ready to relax. That’s it. I actually love doing them remotely because then the client gets to be in their comfy clothes, in their own environment and without having to drive with a relaxed energy buzz afterwards! In truth, they don’t even have to be done over the phone, they can be done while we are doing other things, but there’s something to be said about taking the time to stop and relax and take care of ourselves while listening to someone tell us what is going on with us and our life, who sometimes haven’t even met us before!
So who needs an energy healing? Anyone made up of energy! (Yes, even those you don't think are...)
There are many, many energy clearing/healing modalities out there. Many! So when you know it’s time to clear out the muck and get yourself flowing again, ask the Genie for some help and follow the direction it takes you.
