Once again, what draws our attention most is when we have some physical issue show up. Usually the causes are many - physical, emotional, and energetic. The energetic aspect can also have lots of layers to it. Often in past lives we see multiple instances of an injury or some dynamic playing out again and again. Addressing all of the practical current causes, plus lifting some of the past life influences, can make for a more profound difference in the degree of healing.
Linda: Just the Tip of the Iceberg - er, Shoulder
Earlier in her life, she had a “frozen shoulder” - adhesive capsulitis. It was painful even when her arm wasn’t moving; reaching back to put her arm in a coat sleeve was nearly impossible. Seeing a Rolfer and energy healer resolved the problem. She could hear adhesions popping as the healer moved her arm in various directions while applying energy techniques.
Other causes were apparent to her. Emotionally, she was newly divorced,...
In Buddhism we are encouraged to think of - and treat - every person as if they were your mother. This helps generate compassion and acceptance of all who we encounter. The truth is, they actually could have been your mother in a past life (or brother, lover or or best friend)! It’s an ever-changing cast of characters and roles from life to life.
When my daughter was 3 yrs old, I was pulling the “do this because I say so I’m your mother” power play. I’ll never forget the look on her face when she said, “no, I’m your mother!” I instantly knew that was true, even though at that time I had no real knowledge or experience of past lives.
Nicole: Strange Feelings for a Stranger
Visiting a foreign country, Nicole was desperate to get to a temple before it closed - and stuck out her thumb to hitch a ride! She jumped on the back of a stranger’s motorcycle and let out a whoop as they raced on various jungle paths - a...
Some people are curious about their past lives for no particular reason. I don’t do what I call “past life fishing trips.” They can be interesting but often are not particularly relevant to this life! Accordingly, I let past lives arise naturally during a session; in that case, they are always related to a client’s current experience. The past life can serve to explain a physical issue, or give insight into a psychological, emotional or relational dynamic.
Thomas: He Wanted to go Fishing
Thomas called and was persistent about wanting to access past lives. I asked and got an intuitive go-ahead…
I still did my normal intake. He was plagued by chronic, low level respiratory issues that occasionally spiked to pneumonia-like symptoms lasting for weeks on end. After three years of anxiety and depression, he had recently - at age 53 - quit a high-level IT career in Seattle. (Like many tech workers, he is a Royal-Priest.)
What followed was a...
We are connected to our ancestors physically and energetically. The new field of epigenetics is discovering how we literally carry those experiences in our DNA. We choose a particular lineage to be born into, and sometimes our task is to heal something in the “family line.” I was still just a student in energy healing school when an unexpected healing happened in class. Not exactly a past life, but involving many past lives… and not hers, but related to her “biological karma.”
Barbara: Holding a Lot… That Wasn’t Hers!
Barbara was in her mid-30's and not only had trouble conceiving - her monthly periods had all but stopped. She sought me out because I had “unkinked” a fallopian tube for a fellow student with productive results. As usual, I started at the foot chakras and planned to look at her endocrine and reproductive systems later on in the session.
When I got to the 2nd chakra in the abdominal area -...
When we die and leave this body behind, the soul moves on - and on. What carries through into our next lives is the progress we’ve made, lessons learned, and embodied patterns from previous lifetimes. Some of these historical “records” are leftovers that no longer serve a purpose in the present lifetime.
John: He Still Carried His Battle Scars
John was in his 20’s when he came to see me for the first time. He was having severe chest pain and couldn’t move his head to the left, which was seriously freaking him out. He was sure that he was going to have a heart attack. The doctor he saw gave him a clean bill of health and couldn’t explain his symptoms. (He had been reluctant to tell the doctor he was a regular pot smoker and wondered if that could be the cause.)
Since this was one of those undiagnosed, mystery issues, I did my regular “systems check.” This includes looking at the major organs and...
Welcome to Energy Healing Stories! After years of practice as an energy healer, I have identified various themes such as Past Lives, Ghost Busting, Communication with Spirits, Life’s Purpose, Engagements with Animals, Land Energies and Devas - and more.
Welcome Spring Equinox! As Carly Simon sang, “Anticipation… is keeping me wa-aa-aa-iting…” We can now envision returning to socializing, travel and attending events in the near future. So we are planning! Hopeful! Oh, the places we’ll go… even if it’s just the coffee shop, gym or museum. It’s within our grasp if we just stay the course a little longer. It will be a new normal but much will stay with us; WFH, masks in flu season, Zoom and the advantages of online technology, and - the pets we adopted!
The flurry of media coverage on the one-year anniversary of the pandemic (who knew it would last so long?) was a trip down memory lane:
Shocking, but not unexpected. This is where we are.
After the election of Trump in 2016, I was stunned. Who were the Trump voters, and why were they so angry? At that time, I thought it was a “silver lining,” because you have to see something before you can heal it.
I could not have imagined that the worst aspects of human nature would be stoked the next four years. This anger, feeling of grievance and demonization of the “other” was actively fueled with continuous hate speech and lies. I could debate policy with people if they were following any specifics. In the end, I mostly just said “watch and listen, then decide if you support him.”
I have always felt it was important to be an informed and involved citizen. The daily barrage of Trump’s “reality show” has been overwhelming and left so many - including me - worn out, with PTSD (Post Trump Stress Disorder).
Relief for the outcome of the recent election was short-lived....
Last week I referred to some bigger celestial and geologic timeframes, and that awareness and perspective is helpful. There are other “environmental” energies that define the qualities of time periods. One such model is “doshas”, from an Ayurvedic (Indian) system of health. The three doshas are Vata (fast, cool and airy); Pitta (hot and active); and Kapha (slow, dense and cold). In a health context, a person is described as a combination of two doshas that indicate a preferred diet, exercise regimen, and the most beneficial herbs and oils for them.
What is less well known is that the qualities of these doshas also correlate to 4-hr periods of time throughout the day!
Happy New Year! Why do we celebrate it on a particular day? Because we use time to mark events.
Our concept of time is just that – a concept. It’s a linear model that works for us. Time keeping creates a structure so we can arrive, start and finish something together. It allows us to coordinate our activities, celebrations, deadlines and obligations. And yet we all know that certain phrases – such as “just a minute” and “awhile” – are less strictly observed measurements!
In our preference for endless growth (unnatural as it is) we mostly use time to mark progress. Being considered timely, early, or late all rely on our adherence to this linear model. Time is also treated like a commodity. We save time, spend time, make time for, and make up for “lost” time. It’s a unit (minute, hour, month etc.) that we measure our days and lives by. There are so many ways to mark current time and also reference past and...
