It’s about consistency!

I am often asked how often a person or a pet should receive energy healing. The answer I give is dependent upon whether there is an immediate or chronic issue at hand, or whether the goal is to maintain balance and wellbeing. But my answer is usually the same …. Consistency.

Energy healing works with the body’s energy field (which is also called the subtle energy field). Some people do not feel much, other than relaxation, after their first session. I notice changes and energy shifts when someone is consistent with their energy sessions. And this consistency can either be in having someone else provide the energy healing, or taking a class to learn how to provide your own healing.

Energy healing is like exercising. The first time, you may feel great. But if you don’t do it again, or if you put too much time in between sessions, you will not notice much change. Like exercising, even short sessions with frequency will provide the best results.

Lucy crystal classFor someone who is otherwise healthy and wants to maintain balance and wellbeing, I recommend once a month session with a healer (and/or weekly self-healing). If someone is dealing with an imminent or chronic issue (either physical or emotional), I recommend weekly sessions for the 4-6 weeks (until an obvious shift is noticed) and then moving to twice monthly then monthly sessions (and/or daily self-healing).

For pets, I recommend short (15-20 minute) sessions with frequency according to the same schedule as above.

I have tested this schedule with numerous human and pet clients. Those who are consistent are achieving the results that they want (thus getting their money’s worth).

  1. Locate an energy healer and schedule consistent sessions. Review your budget of how you spend your money (food, housing, etc.) and recognize the importance of budgeting for your health and wellbeing. If you’re in the Northern Virginia/DC area, I offer healing sessions and can help you set up a consistent schedule of wellbeing.
  2. Take an energy healing class so that you can learn how to provide self-healing. Offering self-healing not only hones your skills, but will give you the consistency you need for those positive energy shifts. I offer these classes that benefit people and pets: Usui Reiki, Crystal Healing, and Integrated Energy Therapy.
  3. Wear crystals everyday! I always wear crystals with each providing different energies. Sometimes I need grounding, other times I want to sooth inflammation. You can find crystal bracelets and other jewelry at metaphysical stores or at Healingcrystals.com.
  4. Schedule quiet time (meditation) into your day. When you can quiet your mind, you will relax which will allow your body to start balancing.

Occasional or inconsistent sessions are certainly better than nothing. But you may not see the results that you want; results that you desire that brought you to energy healing in the first place. And while one session will get the process started, consistency will allow the energy to build upon itself and you will then have noticeable energy shifts. For me, daily energy healing is what helps me to deal with stress, our changing planetary energies, and to maintain balance and wellbeing.

Happy Healing!

Are you going backwards?

Do you sometimes feel like your life is moving backwards? That things that you thought were completed and finished have cropped up again? You may be experiencing Mercury Retrograde!

I am not an astrologer but I have spent over two decades fascinated by the science of astrology. I am also highly affected by Mercury retrograde so I have studied this planetary movement extensively and tread lightly during this time.

Mercury retrograde occurs 3 times a year in 3 week spans. It’s when Mercury appears to be going backwards (it really is not). For the final time in 2013, we entered Mercury retrograde on October 21, 2013 and through November 10, 2013. During this time, you may notice that things are a bit topsy tursy. Mercury is the planet of communication, truth seeking, transportation and intelligence. This time is Mercury’s way of going back over territory to see if anything needs to be changed. It’s a time to review and revise anything that is not serving your best interest.

So what happens when Mercury turns retrograde?

  • You miss appointments
  • Your technology goes haywire (computers crash, files are not saved, connections are lost)
  • Things become lost
  • Things that you purchase don’t work
  • Contracts that you sign have problems and need renegotiating
  • New projects/jobs that you start are not what you thought they would be
  • People say things they will later want to take back
  • Relationships may end

So how do you handle Mercury retrograde without going bonkers? Here’s a few practical tips:

  • Backup your computer files
  • When traveling, give yourself extra time for delays
  • Be very aware of your actions so that you don’t lose anything or get lose
  • Reflect on the past to determine what is and is not working for you
  • Your intuition will be heightened
  • Think before you speak
  • Try not to sign any contracts during this time
  • Go back to work on projects that you have not had time for
  • Don’t start anything new
  • Don’t take things so personally (be flexible and understanding)
  • Have considerable down time to reflect and review

Jacob w ribbon 102113So if you sense that things are coming undone or unraveling, take a look to see whether it is something that you really should have. It could be a message from Mercury giving you a do-over.

If you want to adorn yourself with crystals during this time, here are a few recommendations: Blue Lace Agate (to soothe frayed emotions), Black Tourmaline (for grounding your technology), Moonstone (eases anxiety), Pyrite (removes energy chaos), Rose Quartz (keeps your heart/emotions balanced), Selenite (helps you stay centered).

If you like essential oils, I recommend these (especially diffusing them in the air): Young Living Joy, Clarity, Peace & Calming, and Release.

And remember, if you expect Mercury to create upheaval in your life, the Law of Attraction genie will rock your world. So embrace these three weeks and give yourself a little downtime to look at how your life is going, tap into your heightened intuition, and then be ready to make change and start new things once Mercury is back on track.

How resilient are you?

Sturdy root and earth chakrasThis Friday will be the 10th anniversary that I left Michigan and moved to Virginia for employment. It’s a bittersweet day that fills me with conflicting emotions. Let me share a little of why October 18, 2003 was a bittersweet day.

The long story is contained in my first book (How Shelter Pets are Brokered for Experimentation: Understanding Pound Seizure) if you want the juicy details. The short story is this:

I was a very successful and highly respected prosecuting attorney in my home state of Michigan with a promising future. It was my dream job, although it was filled with incredible stress, a few death threats, and constantly viewing the worst of humanity. In early 2003, I exposed some misconduct at the local animal shelter about how they were selling animals to research. Rather than investigate what I had uncovered, my boss turned on me, tried to get criminal charges on me, and publicly accused me in the media of the worst thing that I can be accused of … being unethical and dishonest. He openly threatened me, I was terrified to be in my own home, and I became a recluse for months out of fear. When my boss ordered me to “take back” what I had uncovered in order to keep my job, I held true to my principles and what I knew and walked away. He then proceeded to block me from any prosecution job in the state. Eight months later, I was relieved when I was offered a position as a national trainer with a nonprofit organization that trains prosecutors. I would be able to stay in my chosen legal field, avoid the face-to-face dealings with criminals and death threats, and teach others (which I love to do). But I had to move to Virginia and leave my life behind.

It was traumatic leaving my beautiful house, my family, my friends, my chosen profession, and everything that was home behind. Life was a blur and I’m still not sure how I went through it. In the grand scale of traumatic events, it may not seem traumatic, but at the time it was my living nightmare.

For 3 years, I could barely embrace my new life. I simply was not resilient. My energy was stuck in my old life and was refusing to move forward. I just worked, went home, and wanted to hide. At the time, I had never heard of the Law of Attraction or energy healing. Gosh, I could have used both of those then because I know that I would have bounced back a lot faster.

So why am I sharing this? I certainly do not want to revive the energy of what I experienced 10 years ago. But I think it is worth having a discussion about resiliency.

We all know people who have endured horrific traumas and appear to bounce back quickly and embrace life. We also know people who crumble into despair with objectively minimal bumps in life. Some people have the fight instinct, others the flight instinct. I had the frozen instinct. On the outside, I was composed, professional, did not stoop to the level of my boss, ended up mobilizing a community to stop the selling of animals to research at the animal shelter (which then became a state-wide movement that still continues today), and appeared to be handling the situation with grace. On the inside, I was broken and stuck. I was unable to move with the ebb and flows of the change because the change was so unexpected and excessive. But I instinctively knew that I needed to “fake it ‘til you make it” and keeping a positive attitude outwardly would help me feel better. Gee, that’s what we’re taught to do to manifest what we want with the Law of Attraction.

Resiliency is the key to how we handle trauma and even the day-to-day changes we’re experiencing now. Having a balanced and grounded Earth and Root Chakra helps. So if you haven’t been resilient in the past, how can you become more resilient? Here are a few suggestions that worked for me:

  • Never stop looking for the good that can come out of a bad situation;
  • Let yourself go through the grieving process, do not bottle up your feelings;
  • Confide in people you can trust who will also make sure you do not dwell on the trauma;
  • Remember that the Universe/Source/God has a plan for you and even when bad things happen, there is something for us to learn;
  • Call upon your Angels for guidance and help (they are always there, you just need to ask);
  • Read Law of Attraction books (or take one of my upcoming online classes) to learn how to pull yourself out of the trauma; and
  • Gift yourself energy healing sessions (as many as it takes) to pull the trauma energy out of your energy field.

When I look back, I wish things would have been different, but know that I was being shifted onto a bigger path to make more of a difference. I don’t miss the death threats, the stress of constant trials, or the toll the stress was taking on me.

Had I stayed where I was, it would have been comfortable. But I doubt that I would have created Manifested Harmony, would know about energy healing or the Law of Attraction, would have written 2 books, or would have become nationally recognized for my work to help crime victims (human and animal) on a national level.  I miss my family and friends, but have made new friends and have created a lovely home for myself.

So this 10th anniversary is bittersweet for me but as time goes on it becomes sweeter and I learn more about resiliency. I can honestly say that once I discovered the path of energy healing and Law of Attraction work, that is when my energy shifted and my old energy moved on. If you are struggling with being stuck in old energy, I hope this post helps you. I’m here to help!

Vision board challenge

VisionboardIf you have done any work with the Law of Attraction to clarify your desires and work to manifest them, you have invariably created a vision board.

A vision board is something visible that you create to give you a visual of what you want to manifest. It’s a way to have a frequent reminder to focus on what you really want because the Law of Attraction brings to you what you put your focus on the most.

Vision boards are as different as the person creating them. So this week I am giving you a fun little challenge: turn up your creative juices and come up with an innovative vision board!

Here are a few ideas of the format for a vision board:

  • Vision board on a computer screen
  • Vision board pasted onto paper or card board
  • Vision board on a beautiful decorative backdrop
  • Vision board on your refrigerator
  • Vision board on the side of a file cabinet
  • Vision board on your bathroom mirror

Here are some ideas of what to put on your vision board:

  • Positive affirmations that you create
  • Positive affirmations contained on beautiful cards
  • Newspaper clippings
  • Photos
  • Your intention list

ScanThe purpose of the Vision Board Challenge is two part: (1) this is a good exercise to help you get really clear and visual on what you want to manifest and (2) I am looking for some creative and inspiring vision boards to include in my Law of Attraction classes.

If you would be willing to email me a photo of your vision board, I would be honored to add it to my classes (with or without your name, you choose). So be sure to email me your photo no later than Sunday at 5pm eastern.

So decide what you want on your vision board and then come up with an innovative, bizarre, outrageous or unique way to showcase what you most desire. I am so excited to see what you create!!

Happy Visioning!

Stop Sleepwalking and Wake Up

I Can do itWe are at the beginning of a shift into new energy. It’s been in the works for quite some time. And now we’re there. Did you know that? Or have you been sleepwalking through your life?

All year, I have been talking and writing about the new energy and energy shift, how it’s causing some people to react oddly (or badly) and discussing various ways to handle it. I’ve been testing various methods and techniques while also searching for answers. This past weekend, I was overjoyed to attend the Hay House I Can Do It Conference for a 2nd year. Gregg Braden gave me answers like he always does.

He started the presentation with a brilliant quote from E.O. Wilson: “We are drowning in information, while starving for wisdom.” Wow, that is so true, right?

The world that we grew up with is gone. Sorry to be blunt, but we might as well get ourselves adjusted and get back to living. Too many people are holding off on doing things because they are waiting for things to “settle down.” Today’s world and energy is now your new normal. So how are you feeling with this new energy? I’ve definitely felt more sensitive to other people’s behavior and have not had good sleep. Crystals, energy healing, and intentions have definitely helped me. Other people are angry, confused, anxious, depressed, jittery, and coming unglued. So this uneasiness is our new normal? Sheesh, that’s pretty sad. But we don’t have to feel this way once we know what to do.

Gregg Braden gave us a very simple answer on how to live in the new energy.

Resilience.

Not the sort of resilience that we see in someone have after they bounce back from a difficult situation. Resilience now relates to how we think and live everyday so that we thrive during changing conditions. Resilience is the key to wellbeing during the new energy. Resilience is what we must have every day.

You cannot be resilient and thrive if you’re sleepwalking through all of this, numbing yourself to change with your IPod blaring in your ears, your eyes on your smartphone and not on your surroundings, communicating only through technology, and living a disconnected life. You are here on this planet at this time of change. We all need to connect to this new energy.

In this new energy, we are living with extremes (financial, climate, behavioral) that show us what is not working, and change is happening fast because we can no longer deny that our entire globe is connected (thank you technology). What happens in Syria directly impacts everyone.

We have all of the solutions to current day problems right now. The issue is that we have not adapted our thinking to access those solutions. Too many people are working with old energy in the new energy. It doesn’t fit and it doesn’t work. But first, we need to mourn the loss of the old world, let it go, and then you can adapt. Adapting is resiliency. And what I personally love about the new energy is that science is FINALLY catching up to spirituality. What indigenous cultures knew 4000 years ago, we are finally acknowledging. So for the first time in a long time, I’m excited about the new energy because what I know about science and spirituality is meshing together.

Gregg explained that we are now in the New Age of Meeting Ourselves Again. Isn’t that beautiful? The new energy is all about connectedness, oneness, mutual aid and cooperation. The energy no longer supports competition and aggression. So how do we get ourselves to this New Age sooner rather than later (so that we can sleep and feel better)? The answer is again simple ….

Love and compassion.

Gregg told us about 2 women, each at least 120 years old. One lives in Tibet and the other in Palestine. Both areas have seen a lot of devastation. So how do these women stay healthy and vibrant at 120 years of age with all of the strife? Both went through life living from their heart and not their head. They lived and experienced the world with love and compassion.

I’ve asked this before and feel like I’m banging the same drum, but I have to ask. Which would you rather experience? Fear or love? Almost everyone, and sometimes myself included, spend too much time fearing. If I quit my job, will work that I’m passionate about pay my bills? If I leave this relationship, will I grow old alone? This fear, along with other negative emotions like hatred, anger, resentment all lead to physical issues. Our bodies can heal themselves if we let it. But we hang on to unresolved hurts that are now proven to be the root cause of many ailments, including the #1 killer of Americans … heart disease. Where do we store unresolved hurt? In our heart. Make sense?

When we can start to move from our mind to our heart and live our lives that way, we will tip the scales towards compassion. I truly believe that if everyone will stop sleepwalking through walk and awaken to what our world wants us to do, we will dramatically cut diseases that strike us down in the prime of life, we will see an end to aggression, wars, and people who shoot up malls and schools. I don’t know anyone who wants to continue our current reality. So you have a choice to make. Live from your head (and continue as is) or live from your heart (and help us shift the planet to compassion).

I’ve decided. Have you?

If you want to read more about this, Gregg Braden has written several books on the topic. I highly recommend his books. And stay tuned as I continue offer ways to help you move to a heart-based way of living.
