We are not promised an easy path, or even a clear one.

Follow your soul path through learning and experiencing.

Following a soul path can be all about working through the blocks and off-road navigating. One may ask, “Why is life so difficult?” Or, “I have no idea what I want to do with my life.” Sometimes we enter into a situation with excitement and drive, only to find out that it isn’t what we expected and no longer desire it. Others may just know what it is that they are to do in this life, and eagerly set out to accomplish their goal. One may feel the need to follow in the footsteps of another, only to realize that his “heart” isn’t in it and finds himself at a loss of what path to take.

Being in alignment with soul doesn’t necessarily mean that one’s path will be easy. There are many examples of those who have accomplished much, but had many obstacles that hindered them along the way. We all come into this world with a purpose for this lifetime. We are meant to learn what we have not in previous lifetimes. Ascension is the term that is often used in today’s circles. On the other hand, some believe that we only have this one lifetime in the physical plane to achieve “something”. And that is okay too! The point here is the learning and experiencing while you are here on the earth plane.

Souls are energy that are brought into a physical body. Soul paths are contracts that were previously agreed to prior to coming into this physical form. Here are some questions to ponder. Who said that life is easy? Who’s said that those who have difficult lives deserve better? Why should they should suffer so much?

Let’s go back to the soul contract and the re-learning what one did not fully understand, or learn, in the previous lifetimes. For example, one could have been a wealthy land owner that treated his servants very poorly. He could have done this over many lifetimes, and never learned the lesson of compassion. Prior to coming into this lifetime, his soul contract was that of experiencing the same treatment he gave his servants. His lesson is to learn and experience how it feels to be treated thusly. His path is to find compassion.

Now your probably wondering how can someone feel compassion if he’s poor, starving, and maybe even living on the streets? Or, he was born into this situation, so it’s not his fault. Humans have free will. Regardless of their situation, all have choice. Making positive or negative choices are constantly impacting our lives, thus our soul path. Soul gently guides us every second of every day with love always being the ultimate outcome. However, many of us veer off our path and ignore our innate intuition.

Suffering, pain, lack, and hardships can be part of one’s path. For example, Mother Theresa was given a choice. Live the life of a nun within a safe convent community, or serve the poor. Following her soul path gave her the courage and will to take the trip to Calcutta, India to live with and serve the poor. She had complete faith and trust that her, and the needs of others, would be met. The point is, she fully opened her heart to love. She embraced her soul path. Her life, and the life of those she served was filled with strife, hardships, and sometimes threats of violence. The path she chose was not an easy one. Through her work with the poor she found compassion and humility.

Trusting your intuition and inner guidance, we allow the Universe to guide us. Asking the question, “How may I serve?” Doesn’t always give the answer that is expected, or easy. Sometimes the path is a difficult one. If you accept it with an open heart, the Universe will guide you.

The struggle that many of us have is lacking true faith and trust. Many don’t want to do the work that is required to achieve soul path success. And the term success shows up differently to each and every one of us. Pride, ego, greed, and selfish self-love often blind people to their true path. When one finds success through greed for example, that is not in the highest form of love. That success can come crashing down, and one finds himself in an unfortunate circumstance where he needs the help of another. Through the kindness of another’s help, he can learn the lessons of compassion, love, faith, and trust that he did not initially learn through his rise to success.

Monetary success and fame are not always the ultimate goal of ones path. Struggle, hardships, poverty, and illness can very well be part of one’s soul path in this lifetime. That concept is difficult to imagine. Learning and experiencing by following your intuition takes courage. However, the journey is what’s important. Your soul is constantly speaking to you, through your dreams, coincidences, deja vu, or even the people you meet. No one soul path is the same. Continuing to grow and ascend allows each soul to evolve into the next dimension. Striving to reach the ultimate goal of unconditional love for all.

Energy healing and stress? How does it work?

Energy healing, or energy work, is the new buzz phrase these days, yet many are puzzled by how it actually works. As a Reiki Master, Advanced Integrated Energy Therapist (IET©), and an Advanced Master Crystal Healer, I will help you to understand what it is that I, in particular, do to help release negative, blocked, or suppressed energies. Each energy practitioner has her/his own style of energy work. We all have our distinctive gifts that we bring into our practice. How we interact with a client and conduct a session is our own. I use Reiki energy, IET©, crystals and my own unique healing energies directly from a Divine source. I have Archangel Rafael, sometimes many more, by my side during each session. He channels energy through me and guides me throughout each session. I will go into more with him in a bit, but let’s continue with the energy…

Energy is everywhere. Each person, thing, thought, and emotion is made up of energy. Some we can see, and others we cannot. A table is made up of energy so condensed that it is a solid form. A stream of water is energy, yet it is fluid. Air is energy, yet we sometimes feel it, but most often do not see it. A person is energy. A thought is energy. An emotion is energy. The Universe is energy. A black hole is energy.

I’ve been a Reiki Master since 2006. Working with the body, mind, spirit, and soul is where the real healing begins. As a massage therapist for over 13 years, most people come to me because they want to feel better physically. They think that the physical touch of manipulating the muscles will make them better. There is no mistaking that massage does and will release muscle tension, yet only temporarily “heal” or resolve the root of the problem. When a client comes to me with upper back and neck pain, they expect to be fixed by the end of the session. Let’s add in stress. That is the energetic portion of the equation that most people miss, or think that a massage will release after one session. This is where massage only becomes a Band-Aid. It’s a temporary fix. . Believe me, I do love a good massage, especially with hot stones and essential oils! Yet, clients continue to book sessions that address the same problem every week with no end in sight. The question is why aren’t these symptoms or physical ailments resolved?

In comes Energy Healing. Working with a client’s energy field encompasses the physical, mental, and emotional energies. For example, a client comes to me because he has a long-standing medical issue that causes multiple symptoms. He is taking multiple medications, and has become frustrated that nothing is working to make him feel better. He is fatigued, stressed and thinks this is just the way he’s supposed to feel. Or, a client has a very stressful job, family life, or relationship. She doesn’t know how or when she started to feel this way but thinks that if she just “deals with it”, she can manage the situation. These examples are defined as chronic stress. Energy work heals the whole body – physical, mental, and emotional, not just the symptom. Long-held stress, or chronic stress, can be traced back to the onset of most disease. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3341916/)

When a client comes to see me and explains his or her symptoms, I will always recommend energy work over massage. But, massage reduces stress, right? Why would I want an energy session when my neck and shoulders are so tight, or I have this pain in my back that I can’t get rid of? Isn’t muscular pain resolved by manipulation of the muscle? Sometimes it will, but not always. Working with chronic pain and symptoms can signal a deeper more overwhelming issue. I recommend energy work because it lasts much longer than massage, it goes much, much deeper, and it releases and/or shifts the negative energies or blockages that have manifested into a long held physical, mental, or emotional state. The benefits will be felt for an extended period of time, and will often release some or most of the long-standing beliefs that started them down the path of their current condition. Some shifts may be profound, others may be much more subtle.

Divine Healer. Really?

I work directly with Archangel Rafael. He is my guardian angel as well as my mentor. He is with me throughout each and every healing session I give. Being able to channel his energy through me to my client is an awesome, as well as a very humbling experience. The absolute love that I feel flowing through me to my client is so amazingly beautiful. While I continue to work with Archangel Rafael, my healing gifts continue to grow and evolve. Other angels, guides, guardian angels, or loved ones may also be present as well. If there is an area, whether physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual that needs to be released, they will step in and tell me, show me, or give me a symbol as to what the block may be.

Not only does each client have a release and/or shift of his or her energetic, physical, mental, or emotional field, I also receive guidance that is given to me by my guardian angels, and his or her guardian angels, as well as other angels, or loved ones. This guidance is meant to help them on many levels. Not all of the guidance may make sense at the time of the session, but he or she may have an “a-ha” moment at a later time, and that is when the connection is made and they can allow the continued release.

What type of guidance do you receive?

I receive various types of guidance. Each client is unique. Some may receive information as to the root of what is causing a physical ache or pain. Others may receive past-life issues that have not been resolved, and continue to plague them in this lifetime. Relationship issues with others, as well as the relationship with themselves can be given. Diet, nutrition, or other health and wellness guidance may come through. You see, the Angels work with your energetic imprint. They respond to the energy at the time of the session. Yes, there may be future possibilities, or past-lives that come through that are affecting the present, but freewill always comes into play. I channel the guidance, and then pass it on the client so that they may sit with it, and reflect or meditate to find the deeper meanings that come from within.
