in 1999, I began learning about the chakras not just by reading
about them, but by actually feeling them. Without being fully
aware of what I was doing, I began doing mini chakra healings on
my friends with my hands. Even though I was using my hands,
they never needed to touch the person. This energy work was
always inspired in the moment.
I began receiving clear guidance from helpers and healers on the
other side of what to do to expand the effectiveness of the healing
space. I didn't really understand the why of it, only that
it seemed to make a difference in how the person approached life
afterwards. One of the more remarkable healings I performed
was on my husband in which healers from the other side showed me
how to remove a stifling covering on his heartcenter which was preventing
him from having the romantic relationships he desired. At
that time I was easily seeing energy and hearing my guides.
Just a few hours afterwards, my then gun-shy friend decided that
he was open to having a romantic relationship with me, whereas before
the healing he was too blocked to even consider it. Interestingly
enough, I mostly forgot about this amazing experience.
began coaching and teaching workshops in 2003, every once in a while
I would be inspired to offer to clear someone's chakras or help
their energy come back into their body. On one occasion I
cleared out a client's root chakra. She had been looking desperately
for employment for over a year. A few days after this clearing,
she was offered a job that she hadn't applied for that was just
what she wanted. After a few more episodes like that, I decided
I needed to know more about what I was doing. When I attended
the Healing the Light Body School five years after my initial chakra
clearing with my husband, I was flabbergasted to discover that I
already knew how to do the Illumination Process Dr. Villoldo taught.
In fact, I had already done it several years before.
theory behind this type of healing is that our energy system, when
we go through a traumatic experience, becomes imprinted with the
experience. Our chakras act as the interface between the energetic
plane and the physical/emotional plane. This imprint is uploaded
by the chakra and stored in our aura holographically, meaning it
is everywhere at once. When something occurs in our lives
later to trigger the experience, the imprint reenters the originally
affected chakra and begins running our lives so that we repeat the
pattern. This occurs in an effort to help us become aware
of the pattern and heal it ourselves. However, many deeply
emotional experiences tend to catch us so we can not make fully
conscious choices about our responses. And, even when we are
fully conscious of the pattern and how it operates, we may still
find ourselves doing the same exact thing, to our frustration and
I do during these healings is activate the pattern the client wishes
to heal, and then I help remove the pattern permanently from the
affected chakra. Once the pattern is removed, I overwrite
the chakra so it cannot be reimprinted unless the person has a similar
traumatic experience. Results can be dramatic or very subtle.
Sometimes another deeper pattern is discovered underneath the presenting
of this, the client is the one who is responsible for the healing.
As the healer or shaman, while I am doing the technique and following
my guides' instructions, if the client isn't ready and willing to
heal, no change will occur. I encourage my clients who want
healings to examine carefully if they are ready and willing for
their lives to change. And as a healer, my responsibility
isn't to heal the client, but to hold the healing space to help
the client heal himself.
