Piercing the Veil: How to Connect to the Spirit Realm



Have you made successful contact with spirits from beyond? Now is the time to try! You do not need to be a medium in order to connect with spirits beyond the physical plane, but there are certain times of the year when it becomes easier. As a spiritual teacher and energy healer, I can feel the spiritually significant shift in seasons occurring this month, which means it’s the ideal time for you to bridge the gap between the physical realm and the spirit realm for guidance, support, love, and reassurance about the immortal nature of your soul. Blurred Lines Between Worlds

Autumn is a time of transition, a time when the leaves change color from red to orange to yellow, when the clear skies of summer become filled with rolling clouds, and the days begin to get darker earlier. The winds of change are in the air, and these visible forms of transformation on display from Mother Nature are a good reminder that there are other blurred lines occurring right now as well: between the living and the dead, between your body and your soul, between HHHeaven and Earth.

Spirit Invitations

The end of October has been a spiritually significant time for centuries. Ancient people held rituals and harvest festivals at this time to mark the end of summer and begin the preparations for the colder months to come. What we now call Halloween has its roots in Celtic harvest festivals, particularly the Gaelic festival called Samhain, which means “summer’s end.” These cultures recognized that this date was the midpoint between the autumnal equinox and the winter solstice, which makes it a period of indistinct boundaries between physical and spiritual, and a powerful time for communion with spirits. As part of their celebrations, the Celts would honor the dead and invite them into their homes, make offerings of freshly tilled food, and communicate with loved ones who had passed to the other side.




Transition Traditions

More recent and contemporary traditions still celebrate the thinning of the veil between worlds in similar fashion. The Mexican holiday Day of the Dead includes gatherings of friends and family to remember and celebrate loved ones who have passed on. People build altars and bring these along with the deceased’s favorite foods and drinks to the grave sites. Similar rituals take place around this time in many other countries as well. It seems the whole world is aware that the transition between seasons is also a time to pay tribute to the transition between life and death and connect with the spirit realm.

So how can you take advantage of this in-between time to increase your connection with the other side?

  1. Honor the deceased.

Just as Day of the Dead or Samhain traditions included inviting the spirits of loved ones to visit by putting out favorite foods and drinks, you can set a place at the table for a loved one during this month as an invitation. You might bring valued possessions of the deceased to their gravesite, or set up an altar or light a candle in their name, or have a party to tell stories about their life and celebrate the time they spent on Earth. Honoring the dead can happen many ways—choose the method that feels right to you.

Once you have made room for a spirit in your environment, be aware for signs of their presence. A photograph of them may levitate or fall off a wall, or an object the loved one gave you that you lost might suddenly reappear. You may hear their voice or even see an apparition. During this month of easy cross-overs between worlds, you can expect a noticeable response from the spirit realm, so stay alert.




  1. Pay attention to your dreams.

Spirits without bodies often prefer to make contact with you through your dreams. Sometimes a spirit will visit you to give you a warning of an impending event, or advise you about your health, or provide other helpful information or guidance. When you attend healing courses and have an active practice of energy healing and meditation, you become more open to the other side than many people are, so a spirit may visit you and ask you to pass on a message to someone else who is less receptive.

You can usually recognize a true visitation dream by a few tell-tale signs. The dream might feel much more “real” and vivid than other dreams; the spirit may reach out or hug you, and you still feel the contact when you wake; a deceased friend or family member will appear as a much younger version of themself; you may experience extremely intense emotions of forgiveness, anger, relief, and love; and lastly, there is likely to be a gut sense that it was that person “for real” and not just a memory or projection. As you’ve learned through energy healing, go ahead trust your third chakra, trust your intuition—it’s most likely telling you the truth.

  1.  Remember you are not solely a physical being.

When you make a true connection with a spirit from the other side, it will reinforce what you learn in energy medicine: you are not just your body. You are a soul housed in a body for this lifetime on Earth, but when your body dies, your soul does not; it simply transitions back into the spirit realm, back where it came from.




Once you have interacted with souls who no longer have bodies, you will have no doubts that spirits live on, or that you will continue to live after you leave your body. When the veil is permeable, it’s easier to recognize that the illusion is the physical world; the reality is that you were born in the spirit realm and you will return there. This life is a stepping stone in a long soul journey. This expanded perception of mortality gives you the strength to confront the fear of death, which just may be the greatest gift of piercing the veil and connecting with spirits in the beyond.

The upcoming winter solstice is the next time of year when the veil between worlds will be at its most permeable, so if you are interested in learning more about how to connect to the other side, I hope you’ll consider joining me in person or by live stream in December for my Piercing the Veil event, where my special guest, James Van Praagh, internationally renowned medium and spiritual teacher, and I will bridge the gap between this world and the next. Hope to see you there!




Elder Abuse: Could it be Happening in Your Family?


A lot of our biggest life lessons tend to revolve around family, and especially our parents who shape and form us in so many important ways.


When you’re young and rebellious, it never occurs to you that you might find yourself on the other side of the argument someday, as a parent dealing with your own difficult child. And you certainly don’t consider that your own parents will eventually become elderly, forcing you to take on more of a parental caregiver role to them.


Even if we don’t for see these changes coming, though, they still happen. We all age. And as we do, the lessons related to our family keep on coming.


One of those lessons really came home to me recently when family members decided to take matters into their own hands about my elderly mother driving.




Situations like these call for skillful communication. More than that, though, they require a sense of respect and dignity. To take that from the people we love, and have given us so much, is a terrible thing to do. It’s also an incredibly easy trap to fall into when you’re just trying to look out for an elderly parent’s best interests.

3 Ways to Take Advantage of the Lunar Eclipse



An exciting celestial event is happening this Wednesday—a total lunar eclipse, also sometimes called a “blood moon.” An eclipse occurs when the earth comes between the sun and the moon, blocking the sun’s light from reaching the moon and covering the moon in Earth’s shadow. Partial lunar eclipses are relatively common, but a total lunar eclipse can only occur when the moon is full and is perfectly aligned with the sun and Earth, which doesn’t happen very often. You can imagine the energy radiating from such a cosmic arrangement!

One of the basic tenets of energy healing is that you are connected to the universal field, which is connected to everything in the entire universe, including the sun, the moon, and beyond. So when a planetary line-up like a total lunar eclipse occurs, you should sit up and take notice, because that energy affects you directly.

The Moon of Change

Ancient people were terrified of total lunar eclipses because, while the moon is technically in darkness, it rarely goes black. Instead, it usually turns a blood red color or a deep orange or even copper-colored, which is sunlight skimming off the earth’s atmosphere, the light of all the sunrises and sunsets ringing the earth. Before we had sufficient technology, people thought the red “blood” moon was a sign from the gods or an omen of war or disease. These kinds of fears were likely intensified by the power of the eclipse, since emotions are closely connected to the moon.

The Moon Influences More than Tides

Emotions tend to run high during all full moons, but this eclipse will likely cause feelings that have been simmering to boil over, and emotional eruptions wouldn’t be surprising from even the most mild-mannered folks. Lunar eclipses are also associated with change and decisions. They often signal an ending or a new beginning, especially within relationships of all types.




But don’t worry! These shifts and new starts, the emotional turmoil, it all leads to a place of discovery, truth, and awareness. The trick is to learn how to take advantage of the lunar eclipse’s transformational energy, and use it to heal yourself and your relationships. Of course, any energy medicine techniques you perform during this time will be amplified by the moon’s energy, as will your meditation, so be sure to do plenty of both for the best results. Here are three more ways to benefit from the lunar eclipse:

  1. Embrace change.

Change is always a little scary, but it’s also the only way you can grow. Lunar eclipses are periods of “course corrections,” times in your life where you can change the direction you are traveling in order to live a more truthful, authentic life. Keeping up your daily meditation and attending energy healing courses can help you handle any adjustments, and once the new, better routines are in place you will be glad you embraced the shift. Just remember that the changes that arise from this celestial energy are necessary, and though they may be difficult, they are going to make you stronger and happier in the long term.

  1. Let go of the old and bring in the new.

Now is the time to let go of anything that’s no longer working: habits or patterns of behavior, jobs, people, foods, anything that is no longer serving the authentic you. Sometimes habits begin as helpful crutches meant to carry you through a rough patch, but when they become problematic, you have to muster the strength to quit. Lunar eclipses especially force you to look at your relationships. Do any seem to hold you back or bring you down? Be prepared for a shift in the way you relate to someone or several someones, or the world, or even yourself during this time. This lunar eclipse will give you the extra courage you need to move on from anything that’s old and unneeded.

This moon’s energy also encourages following your dreams. When you let go of the old, it’s time to make room for the new. Be true to yourself, believe in yourself, and take an emotional risk. Take the dance or art class you’ve been considering. Contemplate moving or changing careers or becoming an energy healer! Really dig deep during this eclipse and see what you can give up and what you will gain as a result.




  1. Reveal your truth.

This eclipse has a risk-taking aspect to it, an increase in courage, especially related to other people in your life. Is there someone close to you who you are hiding something from, or someone you feel like you can’t reveal a part of yourself to? Now is the time to act! Use the boost in bravery to stand up for yourself or your principles and admit your truth to the person who needs to hear it most. Use this lunar energy to say something you’ve been trying to but couldn’t find the strength.

Whatever you hold back can get caught in your energy field and chakras, slowing down the flow of energy to you and weakening your body and spirit. As an energy healer and spiritual teacher, I always encourage my students to journal or otherwise express their deepest emotions and personal truths because it helps keep the chakras clear and healthy. But this week, I want you to try to take a step further and express your truths to someone else. Use the lunar eclipse to spear-head change. I bet you will feel a great weight lifted from your heart chakra.

All change can be difficult at first, but it is also a great opportunity for growth. Exercise isn’t always fun, but you feel so good afterwards, and you feel proud of yourself for powering through, for accomplishing a goal through the sweat and resistance, so it’s worth it. That’s what it feels like to make necessary adjustments in your behaviors and relationships, to shake things up, to correct the course of your life. This lunar eclipse is the perfect time to “just do it!”




The Sixth Chakra: Gateway to the Angels



The sixth chakra is associated with inspiration, intuition, memory, imagination, dreams, higher consciousness, and transcendence. But did you know that the sixth chakra is also a gateway to communing with the angels?


Higher Seeing


The sixth chakra, which is known as the “brow” chakra or “third eye” because it sits on your forehead in between your eyebrows, is the foundation of seeing and higher seeing. This energy center governs images and visuals, and the interpretation and storage of those visuals. This includes images you receive from your eyes—images that are from here on the physical plane and then become memories—as well as images that you have never actually seen with your physical eyes, like imagined scenarios or dreams, or even visions of higher planes or spirits. When your sixth chakra is open and expanded, you are more easily able to see and interact with those higher beings, including your angels.


Intuition, Angels, and Your Third Eye


Intuition is strongly linked to the third eye, which makes perfect sense because intuition is a type of non-visual seeing, a method of discerning truth without physical evidence. In energy healing, I often use my intuition to guide me, and when I am centered and in alignment with a fully functioning sixth chakra, my intuition never lets me down. Sometimes your intuition may even be coming from your angels! After all, they reside on the sixth level of the field and can easily communicate with you through your intuition. Angels will always guide you to make the choices most in line with your soul’s true purpose, and can whisper advice or support in your ear when you ask for help. With an open sixth chakra and an unobstructed energy field, you are more likely to receive angel messages and feel their divine love.




The Costs of a Closed Sixth Chakra


Since the sixth chakra is all about seeing and understanding, when you choose not to see the truth of a situation, it can create blockages in your chakra, which is detrimental to your health. Conditions related to the eyes and nose like glaucoma, cataracts, or sinus infections can develop, as can headaches or migraines, and neurological problems or brain disorders can be related to a severely dysfunctional sixth chakra as well. A closed sixth chakra may also lead to an inability to trust your own intuition and inner guidance, you may not remember your dreams, and it will be harder to interact with beings of light like your angels.


Healing Your Third Eye


In order to clear blocks in your sixth chakra, and all your chakras, the best thing to do is to attend energy medicine workshops or healing courses. In between courses, keep up your progress by meditating for twenty minutes twice a day, staying grounded and in tune with Mother Nature by getting outside, and speaking or writing your truth. Expressing your true emotions is particularly important for the health of your sixth chakra. Admitting your deepest truths will go a long way in clearing any blocks in your third eye, which is all about seeing the truth. And don’t forget to ask your angels for help! All angels have the power to heal as well as guide and protect, so go ahead and request that they extend their healing touch to your third eye chakra. They are happy to heal your intuition! It’s kind of their specialty. Asking your angels for help in restoring your sixth chakra will also make it easier to ask your angels for help with anything else, so it’s a win-win!


Wisdom Beyond Your Five Senses


On the opposite spectrum from a closed or blocked sixth chakra, an open and expanded sixth chakra offers heightened awareness for greater seeing, possibly even clairvoyance, greater hearing, greater understanding of the world, and a deeper connection to your spirit guides, angels, and Source. When your third eye starts to open and grow, it’s almost like magic. You will begin to see and sense the synchronicity of the universe. Things that would have previously seemed like coincidences suddenly make sense and you realize that nothing is really random—it is all part of the grand design. An expanded sixth chakra allows you to transcend the restrictions of time and space and your personal identity, and gain access to the universal field where all knowledge is stored, and where divine love flows freely. When you awaken the power of your sixth chakra, you receive inspiration, perception, and wisdom beyond your five senses.




Moving up in Consciousness


Essentially, when you fully open your sixth chakra, you attain ascension: a moving up and out of your body into higher realms, an increase in vibration, an expanded consciousness, a realignment with your higher self, and a direct connection to Source and your angels. Normally this type of jump in spiritual level requires a facilitator of some kind, an energy healer or spiritual teacher, to guide the higher vibrational energy into your body as in the case of an initiation, or to lead you in a guided meditation like the one I’ve done in this free video to expand and open your third eye.


Take care of your sixth chakra with energy medicine and regular doses of energy healing from your angels, and your intuition, inspiration, and ability to see beyond will vastly improve.

Are You Receiving Messages from Angels? Find Out!


Have you ever received a sign from the universe? Perhaps you were contemplating a big decision right before bed and then you woke up confident of the right choice, or you were mulling over a problem and the answer seemed to just drop into your head. Maybe you were thinking about contacting an old friend and a song like “Stand By Me” played on the radio, or you were feeling gloomy and the clouds parted to reveal a rainbow and lifted your spirits. These types of drop-in support, guidance, and love are indeed signs from the universe, most likely from your angels! And these angelic messages are more frequent than you might realize, as long as you know where to look.


Angels Standing By


You are surrounded by angels. Right now, and always, you have at least one angel standing by, keeping watch over you, tending to your well-being, and providing healing, hope, and happiness whenever you ask. Keep in mind, you do have to ask. Angels can’t interfere with your life without your permission—they have to abide by the law of free will. The one exception is in life-threatening situations, when they may set off little warning bells in your brain or your gut to alert you to a potentially harmful situation even without you asking. It’s a good thing, too, as in any true emergency, you may not have time to call for help.


Angels were never human, but they can take human form to physically save you from harm, or to deliver a very important message. I have heard stories from many students—and have quite a few of my own that I share in my Angels of Energy Healing Online Course—about people who appeared out of nowhere to answer a question, or to pull them from a burning car or otherwise save them from an immediate threat. Perhaps you have your own mysterious savior story! But angels can also appear to you or answer a question or plea for guidance in ways that are more subtle.




Angel Calling Cards


Angels vibrate at such a high level that it can sometimes be difficult for them to communicate with humans. Or rather, it can be difficult for our limited human brains and bodies to process angel communications. In order to commune with the angels, you either need to raise your own vibration, or be led into the heavenly realms by an experienced spiritual teacher. Because this takes time and practice to master, and is not always practical, angels have figured out other ways to get their messages of support, guidance, and love to you.


Each angel has his own “calling card” so to speak—and as you begin to connect with your angels more and more, you will come to recognize each of your angel’s signs. For example, I always know when Archangel Michael is near by the sound of his wings. Now for you, Archangel Michael may manifest in a scent or repeated number.


While each angel will have its own “vibe,” here are three very common signs of the angels you can watch out for:




  1. Feathers


Ancient artists depicted angels as beings with wings to symbolize their ability to travel back and forth between heaven and earth, and angels themselves have embraced this idea, so feathers have come to be one of their most prevalent signs. You may know that your angel is present when you hear the rustling of feathers as if giant wings are unfurling, or feel the gentle brush of a feather on your cheek or arm.


Feathers themselves can serve as angelic signatures, especially when you see feathers where they wouldn’t normally be. If you see a feather, particularly a pure clean white feather, sitting somewhere that it would make no sense for a feather to be on its own, like your nightstand or office drawer, it is likely a message from your angels.


  1. Music


The songs of the heavenly choirs are almost indescribable—light and beautiful and resonant. So gorgeous and full of love they bring you to tears. When you hear the music of the angels, you will know. And if you do, it means your angels are about to speak to you or save you from danger, so be on alert. Angels may also send you messages or advice through human songs. Have you ever heard the same song five or six or even ten times in the same day in different places? Listen to the lyrics! It is likely your angels giving you a sign.




  1. Physical Sensations


Your body can tell you a lot when you pay attention, including when an angel is present. Because angels exist on a higher plane they can be near you without you seeing them at all—but your energy field and body will pick up on those higher vibrations. The most common physical sensation is a feeling of warmth or a tingling when an angel of energy healing is working on healing your body or chakras. You may also have goose bumps or feel a small amount of pressure in your head or back of the neck. Angel signs in the body are never painful! If you feel pain, something else may be at work.


Increase Your Angel Interactions


There are more angel signs, including light, rainbows, scents, and more. You can increase the frequency of signs from heaven and your ability to connect to your celestial guides and cultivate relationships with your angels by walking the path of light. After all, angels are made of that light. A daily practice of meditation, processing your emotions, and attending energy healing courses and workshops to keep your chakras clear and charged are all important parts of energy medicine, but they also expand your awareness and raise your vibration, making it a bit easier to communicate with the angels.


To find out more about angel signs and how to call on your angels for any type of help at any time, please check out my three-part live online healing and ascension course, Angels of Energy Healing, where you will learn how to access the healing energy of angels, and experience the life-changing power of unconditional love.

Is Unconditional Love Nothing But a Dream?



Human love is rarely unconditional. I experienced this first-hand in my own family. My father loved me deeply but, sadly, was unable to control his tendency to pedophilia. My mother refused to love me, blaming me for stealing my father’s affection. Human love can be selfish and ego-based, and is typically conditional. This is borne out by the record number of parents mistreating their children, family members who no longer speak to each other, the frequency of divorce, and on and on.


Most likely you have experienced a lack of love in one form or another, maybe in judgments from your parents, or a former partner or friend. Some of the saddest examples of conditional human love are gay teens whose parents disown them when they come out with their personal truth. Human love has limits, because humans have limits.


The first time I experienced unconditional love, sitting meditating one morning in the cool pre-dawn hours, I was overwhelmed with how it felt – very different from anything I had ever experienced. Once felt, I began to work every day to recreate that feeling and, ultimately, to be able to share it with others. At first, I could only manage to be in unconditional love (that’s where your heart chakra is open more than 100 degrees) for a few minutes. The more I practiced on different people every day, the better I got. Flash forward 25 years, and now I can keep my heart chakra open to 180 degrees for nearly a day (remember, that’s only half way); it requires tremendous focused intent and leaves me exhausted at the end. Compare Jesus, the greatest healer in modern times, who figured out how to open His heart chakra 360 degrees, allowing Him to heal crowds and walk on water, setting the bar super high for the rest of us. Keep in mind, Jesus was a person, just like you and me, so this is an almost unbelievable human achievement. That’s why 2,014 years later, we’re still talking about Him! And trying to emulate Him!


So love is the most powerful force in the universe. Love neutralizes fear. It can heal you, heal others, change the world. And unconditional love, the love beyond all love, is the most powerful type of love in existence. It is love deeper than you can possibly imagine—you have to feel it for yourself. Once you have felt the all-encompassing love of Source, your heart will be filled to the brim and that unconditional love will start spilling over into the world, touching everyone you interact with and leaving a trail of light and love. Remember that Captain and Tennille song, “Love Will Keep Us Together”? Well quite literally, this kind of love does keep us all together.


What Exactly Is Divine Love?


When I speak of divine love, I mean ultimate unconditional love, the highest, purest, most perfect love you can experience. You can call it Unconditional or Divine or Source or even God; whatever terminology makes you most comfortable. It is all the same force, the same energy. This kind of love is part of the universal field of energy; it is what connects and harmonizes all elements of the universe together.


Unrestricted and Unconditional




Divine love has no limits, no restrictions, no parameters. Divine love is one hundred percent unconditional. Source will love you no matter what you do. There is absolutely nothing you can say or do or even think that will break or undermine the love Source has for you exactly the way you are. There is no judgment, no disappointment, only love. It’s incredibly freeing to know that deep and pure a love.


How Do I get this love?


So how can you experience the unconditional bliss of divine love? If you are reading this, you are already headed in the right direction! Divine love is what you move toward as you walk the path of light – by meditating, working with a spiritual teacher, practicing energy medicine, clearing your chakras, communing with nature, and being of service – each of these steps moves you toward experiencing the immense love of Source and all its benefits. Attending healing courses is another great way to connect to divine love.


Where do the Angels Fit in?


Angels bring divine love down to Earth directly from Source. They radiate divine love, so when you are in contact with your angels, you are receiving the energy of the Divine. They are literally conduits for the unconditional love of Source. Interacting with angels is almost like being able to reach into the heavens, and they’ll take you one step closer to Source.


Some say meditation is a communion with God, and that is one way to look at it. Done correctly, meditation raises your consciousness and propels you into the higher realms where you are more easily able to access your Higher Self, your guides and angels, and, ultimately, Source. In this expanded state, you may feel yourself fill up with peace and love, an effect which can last for hours or days after the meditation. A daily practice of meditation will increase your interactions with the higher realms and the time you spend basking in divine love. Consider guided meditations as well, like the ones I lead in my Angels of Energy Healing Live Online Course, that can take you higher than you are able to go alone.




Your Cup Will Runneth Over


However you experience the power of unconditional love, once you have, you will be utterly filled. There will be so much love inside your Spirit that you won’t be able to contain it, and as your well of love runs over, that love will spread out like a wave, washing over everyone you interact with and lifting their vibration too. Your behavior will shift as well—that love inside you will make you more compassionate and kind. You will be radiating that love through your actions and through your energy field, helping to create more awareness and kindness in turn.


This is how the light revolution will prevail over darkness—through energy healing practitioners and seekers of the light like you raising their own consciousness and opening themselves up to the magnitude and immensity of divine love. You become an ambassador of that divine love, like a pebble tossed in a pond, rippling out love to the world and changing the course of the planet.


If you would like to learn more about how to become an ambassador of divine love, please check out my three-part live online healing and ascension course, Angels of Energy Healing, where you will expand your awareness, learn how to access the healing energy of angels, and experience the life-changing power of unconditional love. Come join me today!



Have You Met Your Angels of Energy Healing?

Did you know there are angels of energy healing out there, waiting to come to your aid? These angels are with you right now—all you have to do is let them know you want their help and they will be by your side in an instant, ready to heal your mind, body, and soul with their powerful celestial energy.

More Than Messengers

Angels are most well-known as messengers of God. In fact, the word angel comes from the Greek word angelos, which means messenger. In the stories of many religions, angels bring God’s word to humans, acting as intermediaries between the heavenly and earthly realms, and angels still serve this role today. But angels are so much more than just messengers!

Angels are also guardians, record-keepers, guidance counselors, muses, best friends, teachers, and in dire circumstances, emergency responders. Angels love you unconditionally—no matter what you do, your angels will still support and stand by you. They’re like family, only better because there is no judgment! But best of all, angels are natural healers and can help you heal anything from a headache to a broken heart to a blocked chakra. All you have to do is ask for their healing touch, because every single angel is an angel of energy healing.

Really feel into your energy field and remember the times in your life when you received a message of love and healing from an angel. It might have been a special sign from a loved one that’s no longer on this plane, a healing phone call from a long-lost friend or a comforting hug when you most needed it. Messages take all shapes and forms, but an angel is always there.

Angels of Energy Healing

Angels are literally made of light and love—they are made of energy. They can choose to take human or any other form, but their true, natural state of being is as radiant white light and pure, unconditional love. They still have a consciousness; they are thinking, individual beings with their own personalities, but they do not have a body. They are made of the very thing we use as the healing agent in energy medicine: positive energy! This means that all angels have the ability to energetically heal you instantaneously, no matter what type of healing you need. And trust me, they are among the most powerful energy healers you can find!

Angels are also a connection to divine love—the most powerful love in the universe. Angels live in the radiant love of Source—can you imagine how wonderful that must be?—and they bring that divine love back down to Earth, to you, so that you can experience the life-changing unconditional love of God. Once you have felt the warmth and complete bliss of divine love, your consciousness expands, and you become more self-aware, more aware of the love all around you, and you know in your soul you are loved by Spirit. You also become a beacon of love for others, just like angels.

Ask yourself: When is the last time you felt this powerful sense of Divine Love? Have you ever had a healing experience that was purely angelic? When is the last time you were contacted by an angel while you were meditating or in a dream?

Hear the Angel Voices

Your angels of energy healing are around you at this very moment. They are tuned into your energy and can sense when you are in a life threatening situation, but otherwise they will not interfere with your life unless you ask them to. In my work as a spiritual teacher and energy healer, I often call upon angels as guides to assist in energy healing sessions; they are such powerful natural healers. You’ll definitely want to learn how to contact your angels so you can call them to your side to heal, support, guide, inspire, or simply love you.

Angels don’t have to follow the same rules of time and space as we do, so they are never overworked or too busy for you; you don’t have to worry about “hogging” your angels. They are there for you. A solid spiritual foundation of meditation and healing courses or workshops will heighten your capacity for communicating and interacting with angels, and also provide a strong foundation for ascending to the angel realms where you can hear the celestial choirs.

When is the last time you’ve been guided by an angel to do or say something? Have you ever stopped in your tracks and known that you were walking into danger or dark energy? Your angels will often whisper to you (and occasionally shout)!

Energy Healing, Angelically Super-Charged

In energy healing, I guide light energy from the universal field, through my field, and into your field, just as you do when you perform energy healing on yourself or others. The energy does not come from us; we are just the conduits. When angels perform energy healing through us, the energy is very powerful – just imagine its super-strength!

If you would like to discover even more about how to contact angels and have them heal you, please consider joining me for my three-part healing and ascension course, the Angels of Energy Healing Live Online Event, where you will expand your awareness, learn how to access the healing energy of angels, and experience divine love.




3 Ways Angels Keep You Safe

Have you ever heard that voice in your head that cautions you to take the sharp turn in the road a little more slowly, and then an accident happens right in front of you, an accident you just narrowly avoided? Or maybe you’ve heard the stories of mothers who suddenly develop super strength to lift a heavy piece of furniture off their children, or of other miracles in which fraying ropes hold long enough for last-minute rescues or a search team finds an unconscious missing hiker in a remote part of a park because someone had a “hunch.”

More Than Luck

Incidents like these are quite common, but that doesn’t make them any less astonishing! It’s more than luck. The simple reason for the frequency of these amazing events is that every single person has their own guardian angel, protecting them at all times.

Your guardian angel is present right now, watching you, keeping you out of harm’s reach, and stepping in to help in the face of danger. That mother was able to lift a heavy item because she was blessed with the assistance of a heavenly hand. That search party member who had a “hunch” was receiving a message from an angel—perhaps both his guardian angel and the lost hiker’s angel. As a spiritual teacher and energy healer, I can’t tell you how many stories I’ve heard similar to these in which “miracles” are really the result of angel bodyguards doing their duty. Take a minute to think about your own close-calls. I bet at an angel was involved in at least one of them.

Safety First

Angels are celestial creatures who are connected to God or Source or Spirit, or however you define the unconditional love of the higher realms. Angels’ “job” is to act as messengers between Source and you—they’re quite literally light bearers, bringing light to Earth and inspiring people to be their best selves. This is why invoking angel guides and the study of angels work so well in tandem with energy healing—the goal of each is to expand your awareness and facilitate your transformation into the beacon of light you were born to become.




Of course, in order to be your best self, you have to be healthy and safe, and angels can help you with that as well. Here’s how:

1. Angels are always available when you ask for help.

Aside from life-or-death situations, like the examples above in which angels actually saved lives, angels will not interfere with your free will. Angels’ purpose is to spread light and love, and taking away your ability to choose your own path goes against that purpose. Angels will sit back and let you do as you please, but if you want guidance, all you need to do is ask.

You can call on angels for anything that feels threatening, from a creepy person who seemed to be following you, to an abusive relationship, or even if you just need a dose of divine love from a judgment-free celestial being, angels can be by your side in less time than it would take to send a text. You’ll soon remember when you thought text and email were fast! With angels, you can call them in a tiny fraction of a second. You can even contact your angels in your dreams, or through meditation. Once you know how to contact your angels, they will feel as close as your shadow, easy to turn to for guidance, comfort, or protection when you need it most.

2. There are multiple angels on your speed dial.

Your guardian angels are yours for life, always keeping an eye out for your safety, but there are also additional angels you can call on in specific times of need. For example, Archangel Raphael is associated with healing. Even his name means “one who heals.” Raphael would be a good choice for angelic assistance anytime you need healing.

Other angels have different areas of expertise, and there are many different types of angels, though only some are available to receive contact from humans. Angels, like humans, have their specialties, and learning more about which angels can help you when, and how to contact each type to ask for help is a great place to begin your angel studies. With only a little bit of effort, you can begin contacting your angels anytime you need help with anything from the energy to get through a tough day at work to guidance about whether or not to buy a house or start a business to whether or not to consider someone a potential partner.




3. Angels help you release negative emotions.

One of the tenets of energy healing is that it’s vital to keep your chakras and energy field clear of negativity. Over time, if lower level feelings of anger or shame or envy or what have you are not dealt with, they can get stuck in your body, creating crimps in your energy flow, which eventually lead to physical health issues.

Likewise, if traumas from the past are not properly processed and released, they too can become trapped in your energy field. Whatever the source of the negative emotions, once they become body-bound, they act like plaque in a clogged artery, and must be removed in order to allow for the free-flow of energy to resume.

Angels can help you start processing these emotions, so you can begin to clear your energy field. Before you go to sleep, ask for your angels to gently begin to lift some of the emotional baggage from your body and field, and notice in the morning that you may feel lighter. Just by asking an angel to work on you brings light into your field and body, which pushes out the darkness. Attending healing courses and working with a trained energy healer is also a beneficial move to rid your body and field of unwanted negativity.

These are just a few of the ways in which angels keep you safe. In addition to steering you away from physical danger like falling ladders or car accidents, angels also keep dark forces at bay, lead your spirit on adventures while you’re dreaming or during deep meditation, and teach you what unconditional love truly feels like. Once you’ve experienced the presence of your angel, you’ll feel less alone knowing they are always ready to jump in and help, and you’ll feel more secure, more at peace, and full of a love that goes beyond any human limitations.

Five Signs That You’re Ready to Initiate


It happens at more and more of my healing courses these days: students experiencing initiations, or spiritual advancement. I used to facilitate just one or two initiations per year, and now I find them happening every day, sometimes to an entire room of people!

As you climb to higher and higher levels of consciousness through initiations, you are also helping to raise the vibration of the whole planet. Initiations come from a place of unconditional love, and that love touches the hearts of everyone who is lucky enough to witness it, and everyone who comes into contact with the initiate.

For such a life-altering event, initiations can sometimes be confusing, especially if you’re new to them. Below are the top five questions I get asked about initiations with answers I hope will help clarify things as well as get you excited by the prospect of your own initiation!

1. What is an initiation?

The short version is that an initiation is a spiritual step up, like moving to the next grade in school. The longer explanation is that initiations are the process of reconnecting with Source, one level at a time. Just as you wouldn’t go from first to sixth grade, you can’t just jump up to the same spiritual plane where Spirit exists from here on the physical plane, it would be too high a vibration to handle all at once. You have to move slowly, raise your vibration level by level. Initiations bring in higher level energy, raise your awareness, and open you up to spiritual gifts.




Initiations happen in all cultures, though they go by different names. In India they call this energy the kundalini rising, in western Christian cultures where I first learned of this process they call them initiations, but it is all the same energy. Whether the facilitator is a Brazilian shaman beating a drum, a Texan minister speaking in tongues, or an energy healer and spiritual teacher like me, the Source energy that flows through us is the same, bringing you expanded awareness and a deeper tie to Spirit.

2. Why are initiations happening more frequently now?

Spirit has infinite information and infinite wisdom; it knows what this planet needs and when. Our world has grown so large so fast, we can barely keep up with ourselves. With increased connectivity it is easier for good energy to spread through the means of Skype and Facetime, so much so that we can even do energy healing sessions and healing courses via the internet!

But this also means that negative energy can spread more rapidly as well, and since negativity is always desperately seeking the light, Spirit saw a need for more light bearers to come into their full potential sooner. If more and more people initiate to higher awareness, the world will start to heal from the inside out.

3. How can I encourage an initiation?

You cannot force an initiation to occur, but what you can do is build a strong base for the initiation to rest on. Prayer, meditation, running, nature, or something else that brings you into mind, body, and spirit into alignment is a good place to start your spiritual practice for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is the link to initiations. Sometimes a student will have the initiation energy waiting above their head, ready to download into their body, but there is no base for me to place it on. You must have a spiritual practice, whether that be meditation or prayer or something like that as a foundation. I never have limiting beliefs about what that foundation can be for an individual – one time, it was pole dancing!




But the best thing you can do is be of service. Chop wood, carry water. Do the manual labor; don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty—literally or metaphorically. Maybe you can plant trees in your neighborhood or volunteer to work with homeless teens. Anything you do that is in service to others, giving your time and energy to benefit someone else with no expectation of reward—that is when Spirit will reward you with a step up.

4. Why do I cry at an initiation, even if it’s not happening to me?

Initiations are pure, unconditional love. When I say you initiate to a higher vibration, well, that vibration is love. When that love comes from Source and into your energy field and body, your heart chakra opens wide to welcome it in. Not just your heart chakra, but anyone who is present, live or via the internet, anyone who witnesses that initiation has their heart chakra expanded, too. That’s why you feel all warm and fuzzy inside at my workshops when other students initiate—your heart chakra is opening, and that can bring tears to your eyes.

5. How can I tell what my level of initiation is?

The best approach to take with initiations is to try not to wonder what level you are on. Curiosity is one thing, but it can be hard to keep curiosity from turning into an egotistical need to know, which defeats the purpose of striving to be of service. Attending energy healing courses and workshops and working with a trained energy healer will help you get a sense of where you are and how much work needs to be done to prepare your energy field for an initiation.

First and second level initiations are subtle and do not require a spiritual teacher to facilitate. In fact, if you are reading this, there is a very good chance that you have already initiated to the second level and you didn’t even notice. Beyond that, a spiritual teacher is needed to be the conduit for the energy from Source to you in higher level initiations.

Initiations are like cats—they come when you stop calling for them or asking them to show up. Meditate and being of service is the best advice I have for preparing for initiations. When you are so engaged with spreading positivity beyond yourself, the initiation will materialize when you least expect it, just like a cat. And it will bring you more joy than you can possibly imagine. It will also bring you para-normal spiritual gifts, perhaps clairvoyance or the ability to know beyond this plane, or perhaps even the gift of healing!




5 Most Common Meditation Pitfalls & How to Resolve Them



Anyone on the path toward enlightenment already knows that meditation is an essential part of the process. In addition to being necessary for expanding your consciousness, meditation has a whole host of benefits from calming stress to lowering your blood pressure to clearing your chakras to improving your energy healing abilities, and many, many more. But what if you can’t do it? What happens when meditation seems to stop working, or when it feels like a chore rather than a blessing? How can you jumpstart or retrieve your meditation motivation?

Let me first and foremost assure you that you can meditate! If you are reading this, you are capable. Like any skill, it takes practice and determination, and a little guidance from an experienced instructor like me. As a spiritual teacher and energy healer, I’ve been training my students in meditation techniques for decades as part of my energy medicine workshops and healing courses.

Everyone goes through periods when maintaining their meditation practice isn’t as joyful or fulfilling, and you may have problems that many share. But meditation is crucial to your health and happiness, so I’ve put together a list of some of the most common meditation pitfalls and how to counteract each bump in the road in the hope that meditation will become an indispensable part of your life.

Pitfall #1: Time.

In this frantic, life-at-the-touch-of-a-smart-phone-button culture, it can be hard to find the time to slow down and meditate. In fact, it’s darn near impossible. That’s why you must make time.




You do not have to set aside hours upon hours for meditation like yogis or monks—they don’t have day jobs. Just twenty minutes at a time, preferably twice a day, is all it takes to reap the rewards of meditation.

Solution #1: Schedule meditation until it becomes routine.

Add meditation to your calendar like it’s any other important event because it is! It takes about three weeks to turn an activity into a habit, so for three weeks, block off the time and set a meditation reminder on your phone. Sit on the same cushion or chair for each meditation and create a safe space free from distractions that, upon entering, sends signals to your brain that it’s meditation time.

The best time to meditate is when you first wake up in the morning. Before you check your email or read the news, before you’ve even had your cup of coffee, take a few minutes to ground yourself to the earth, reset your body, mind, and energy field for the day ahead. If you find that you drift back to sleep when meditating this early, try a mid-morning meditation break instead. Your second meditation of the day should be before dinner, but after work. Let this meditation be your transition between the hectic rushing around of errands, projects, phone calls, and whatever else your day throws at you, and the slower pace of evening.

Making time for meditation will eventually become habitual. How often do you forget to brush your teeth before bed? I’d wager not often, because you know it’s good for you and it’s ingrained in your nighttime routine. The goal is to make meditation as automatic as polishing those pearly whites.




Pitfall #2: Doubt.

This particularly devious pitfall can strike at any level at any time; even the best are not immune to this niggling little pest. Doubt conjures up thoughts like, Nothing is happening. Is this working? Am I meditating right? This is silly. What is supposed to be happening? Shouldn’t I be feeling something? I must be doing this wrong, and on and on and on. Doubt creates a cycle of self-sabotage in your mind and convinces you that meditation is the problem, not the solution, which is of course, absurd.

Solution #2: Be gentle with yourself.

Learning to meditate is not a race—there is no prize for getting to the finish line the fastest. In fact, there is no finish line. Meditation is a long-form art, a lifelong pursuit that can take some warming up to, but there’s no need to rush. Don’t beat yourself up if it feels like nothing is happening. Trust me, energy healing and emotional processing are taking place. Simply do the work: show up each day and sit, breathing, and do your best. Allow yourself the time to notice the benefits. Meditation will get easier the more you do it, so don’t let your doubts keep you from a practice that will change your life if you stick with it.

Pitfall #3: Physical discomfort.

Maybe once you’re sitting, you realize that your neck hurts from the computer or your back from driving so much. Maybe you just have trouble sitting still, your muscles tense and jittery, bouncing up and down or twitching. Whatever the source, it is not uncommon to feel some physical discomfort when you first start meditating. If you experience severe pain, you should see a professional to help determine if there are conditions that need to be addressed, but plain old restlessness or mild discomfort will resolve in time.




Solution #3: Focus on your mantra.

If you have a mantra to focus on, it will take you away from your body in just a few minutes. If you don’t you’ll want to get one from me – I’ll give you one calibrated to your energy field. After a while, sitting will become more comfortable, and your body will begin to associate relaxation with meditation.

Pitfall #4: Emotional discomfort.

Meditation connects you to the deeper levels of your psyche and can release emotions that have been previously kept under wraps. This is one of the reasons meditation is so complementary to energy healing, but when you hit one of those periods when feelings are flying to the surface every time you begin your practice, it can keep you from wanting to close your eyes and meditate.

Solution #4: Focus on your mantra.

During meditation, your job is to simply be. So instead of focusing on those emotional currents churning inside you, turn your attention toward your mantra. Be sure to journal about those feelings later, and be thankful for the opportunity to process your emotions. As you know, releasing old negative feelings is important for keeping your chakras and energy field clear, and meditation facilitates that healing process.




Pitfall #5: Giving up.

Your meditation can’t get better if you stop doing it! Just like you wouldn’t start an exercise routine and expect immediate results, you must give meditation time to effect change in your life. If you give up, you will miss out on all the amazing benefits of meditation.

Solution #5: Don’t give up!

I understand how frustrating it is to come up against seemingly insurmountable obstacles while trying to maintain your meditation practice, but don’t give up! Meditation is the most rewarding personal practice you can do. No other single activity can do so much to increase your all-around well-being as meditation. Keep at it and I promise, you’ll thank the universe you persevered.

3 Tips to Fast-Track Your Spiritual Progress



Are you cruising in the fast lane of the spiritual highway? Would you like to be?

If you’re type A like I am, then you are always looking for better, faster, more efficient ways to accomplish your goals, even when seeking the light. Everyone must travel their own road to expanded consciousness and connection to Source, but you can merge into the far left lane at any time and speed up a little, as long as you’re safe.

Safe is the key word here—you never want to force yourself into any type of energetic advancement because it won’t stick and it could actually be harmful. But, if you’re cautious and determined, you can jumpstart your spiritual progress with a few essential activities that will improve your life in every way.

1. Practice Meditation.

Meditation is the firmest foundation on which to build your spiritual temple. Done properly, meditation has so many benefits it almost seems like magic. It lowers stress, improves sleep, relaxes tense muscles, reduces blood pressure, improves focus and concentration, boosts immunity, and calms the mind and body. Meditation has also been shown to be incredibly effective in treating emotional imbalances, anxiety, and depression. And those are just some the mental, emotional, and physical advantages of a healthy meditation practice.




When you learn to meditate with an experienced spiritual teacher, the benefits jump to new heights. Meditation can help expand your consciousness and bring you to more advanced levels of awareness, help you better connect to the universal field, and prepares you for initiations—the process of, with the help of a facilitator, your energy field moving up to a higher vibration. Meditation can also activate spiritual gifts and talents that have lain dormant, including clairvoyance, heightened intuition, telepathy, astral travel, even the gift of healing!

I can tell you with certainty that without meditation, I would not have made it to where I am today. Meditation grounds and centers you, connects you to Spirit and quiets the external thoughts so you can explore your deepest self. Twenty minutes, twice a day, and you will feel the transformation meditation has on all aspects of your being, I promise.

2. Practice Energy Healing.

Attending healing courses and workshops is by far the fastest way to reach higher levels of consciousness and speed up your spiritual progress. It seems that each workshop I do vibrates at an even higher level than the last and the collective energy of the group can lift you off your feet. This energy makes healing courses and workshops fertile ground for removing vectors and cords, clearing chakras, and initiations.

Whether you participate in an online or in-person healing course, they can help you pinpoint which of your chakras is not functioning optimally and guide you to make the necessary adjustments to correct your energy flow. This is why energy healing workshops can fast-track your spiritual development—a master healer and spiritual teacher like me can remove negativity in one day that would take you much longer to process on your own.




Now, of course, after you go home from an energy healing session, you still must do the work to maintain the clarity in your chakras and your personal field, but an energy healer can kickstart that process for you.

The other great thing about energy medicine is that when you are training to become an energy healer, you cannot help but get healed yourself. You must be in alignment with you higher self, your guides, the earth, and Spirit in order to effect any real healing, so you must constantly be checking on your own field and keeping up habits that will keep your energy field clear and charged. Journaling to express your true emotions, grounding yourself to Mother Nature by spending time outside, and of course, meditation, should all be part of your spiritual repertoire. Just like brushing your teeth, cleansing your energy field should be a part of your daily routine.

3. Practice Meditation and Energy Healing Together.

Utilize both practices concurrently to get the most out of each. Meditation and energy healing act as supports for each other, like tree branches that grow together, twisted and wrapped around each other so that if you removed one, the other would weaken. Together, those branches are stronger, tougher, more stable, and so will be your spiritual roots if you practice both meditation and energy healing on a regular basis.

Energy healing removes the negativity from your field so that the transformative energy brought to you in meditation has a place to settle. Meditation shores up your base so that you can be initiated to higher levels, and energy healing clears away the emotional underbrush so you can grow enough to be ready for those higher levels. The two practices are linked in a symbiotic relationship, each helping the other be a better version of itself and making the sum greater than its parts.

If you meditate and participate in energy healing, you will be making huge spiritual leaps and bounds on your personal path to light. Before you know it, you’ll be cruising down the spiritual highway in a convertible, singing your favorite song and swaying in the wind, knowing you are doing good work.

Never Get Sick Again After You Read This Powerful News



How many times have you been aching and feverish in bed, or coughing and shivering with a cold, and wished that you could avoid getting sick ever again? Probably every time—I sure do! Being sick is harmful in so many ways. Even minor illness like flus and colds wreak havoc on your body and your energy field, and the negative side effects of sluggishness, soreness, and slowed mental capacities last for days after you start feeling better.

Your Body and Energy Field Are Inextricably Linked

If you’re taking my Hay House LifeForce Energy Healing Online Course or otherwise know about energy medicine, you know that your body was created from your human energy field. In fact, your personal energy field existed before your body and held the template for your physical body which then manifested when you were born. This means your energy field and your body are inextricably linked, so when your body is affected by an illness or injury, it’s reflected in your chakras and your personal energy field. Repairing any weaknesses or imbalances in your energy field will support the corresponding issues in the body. This is the foundation of energy healing.

When Something Feels “Off”

Unlike traditional western medicine, energy healers like me can sense illness well in advance of when it appears in your body. You can probably sense it, too. When you feel “off,” but medical doctors can’t find a cause, it’s often because the problem in your field hasn’t yet physically manifested. If left untreated, a distorted chakra or other disruption of your energy flow will eventually show up as sickness of varying degrees, depending on the severity of the energy block.

If you think about it, what this means is that illness is essentially psychosomatic—a bodily reaction produced by the mind. Now, I don’t mean to say that your pain or ailment is imaginary or “all in your head.” It is much more complicated than that.




Consciousness Creates Sickness

Your consciousness interacts with your body through your energy field, so your thoughts, feelings, attitudes, and everything that makes up your current self affects both your body and your energy field since both are connected to that consciousness.

Your thoughts and feelings directly impact your energy field, which we have already established directly impacts your body. Then it follows that since your consciousness affects your body, all illness is self-inflicted, though not intentionally of course. I see it all the time as a spiritual teacher, negative thoughts and feelings really can and do make you sick if you do not process and deal with them.

Avoid Sickness by Keeping Your Field Clear

With this powerful insight, you now know that to avoid feeling physically sick, you need to maintain the health of your energy field. Generally, attending healing courses, journaling to express your true emotions, and daily meditation can go a long way in keeping your chakras clear and charged. But to delve even deeper into the state of your energy field, you’ll want to understand the levels of the field, and the specific characteristics and influences of each.

There are seven main levels of your energy field, listed below. These levels interpenetrate each other and your body and extend beyond your physical form. Each level reaches out a few inches past the previous one and is a step higher in vibration—like a higher octave.

Reach New Levels of Understanding

Each level feels and looks a certain way when it is healthy, and when it is over- or under-charged. It does take practice to learn to sense the state of these energy levels, but with some training from an energy healer, you’ll eventually be able to perceive the health of all seven levels of your own and others’ energy fields!




The seven levels of the field are explained in detail in my Hay House LifeForce Energy Healing Online Course, including how each level should appear and feel when it is operating optimally and when it has been weakened, which areas of your life are impacted by each level, and, most importantly, how energy medicine can improve the health of all seven levels, but here is a brief overview.

The Seven Levels of the Field

1. Etheric body. This level is the closest to your body, just a few inches beyond your skin. This level is associated with pain and pleasure, and is the easiest to self-assess. This level is all about the physical: your senses and your body experiencing life.

2. Emotional body. This level is a mirror for your feelings about yourself. When you don’t love yourself enough, this level can look dirty like smog. If you do have a lot of self-blame, or self-shame, energy healing can help lift your self-esteem and clear up this level of your field.

3. Mental body. This level governs learning and focus, and tends to be relatively strong in modern cultures. We tend to be intellectually motivated, often so much that we forget or ignore our emotions and “gut” reactions.

  1. Astral level. This is the level that is associated with your relationship to everything in the universe, everything outside yourself. If this level is weak, you may avoid intimacy and have difficulty with relationships.
  2. Etheric template. This level is so important—it holds the blueprint for your physical form and is the level that connects to divine will. If you feel as if you are disconnected from many aspects of your life, this level may need some work.
  3. Celestial body. This is the level associated with divine love, and, when healthy, looks like gorgeous streams of rainbow-colored light. Meditation is especially effective for charging this level, and without a strong sixth level, it will be difficult for you to have the spiritual experiences you’re seeking.
  4. Causal body. Think of this level like a golden egg around your body—a protective coating that keeps your energy field safe and contained.

Which of Your Chakras is Dysfunctional? 3 Ways to Check



In my three decades of experience as a master energy healer and spiritual teacher, I have found that most people have several chakras that are blocked or dysfunctional in some way. Unless you have done a tremendous amount of personal work and emotional processing, it is likely that one or more of your chakras is not functioning properly, which can create a wide array of health problems from headaches to cancer.


Just like you’d want to know your genetic risk factors for illness, you probably want to know where the “trouble areas” in your energy field are too. So how can you find out which of your chakras needs a little (or a lot) of repair work? And even more importantly, how can you heal those parts of yourself that need mending?


An Energy Buffet


First, let’s quickly review what a chakra is. Chakras are energy centers that are powered by your emotions; they funnel energy in and out between your personal field and the unified field beyond. This unified field surrounds and interpenetrates everything in the universe, and when your chakras are clear and balanced they draw energy from that universal field to replenish and nourish your personal field. When your chakras are spinning the wrong way or not at all, you do not receive the revitalizing energy you need.


Think of it this way—your energy field needs to be fed, and the universal field serves a twenty-four hour, unlimited buffet of food. But if your chakras are off-kilter and blocking new energy from being absorbed, your energy field suffers from malnourishment, and consequently, your mind and body suffer as well.




Chakras as Energy Barometers


The seven bodily chakras are aligned along your spinal cord from your root chakra at the base of your spine to the crown chakra at the top of your head. You also have higher chakras above your head that connect you to your higher self and the Divine, but in order to reach that point, you must first clear and balance the seven main chakras. This is one of the most important steps in making spiritual progress, as these chakras directly impact your physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing.


Chakras are like a barometer for your energy field—the activity in your chakras reflects the activity in your energy field, which then manifests in your body. Therefore, monitoring the movement in your chakras and catching any disturbances can avoid illness before it has a chance to manifest in the body. Energy healing has the amazing ability to remove a blockage in your field before it causes any physical symptoms!


Beyond the barometer function of measuring your field and forecasting sickness, chakras actually influence all aspects of your health. When dysfunction in your chakras is not treated, it eventually appears as illness or injury. The reverse is also true: repairs to the chakras and personal energy field will lead to corresponding repairs in the body. This is how energy medicine works. You can see why it’s so essential to frequently check on the health of your energy field by testing the flow in your chakras!


3 Ways to Test Your Chakras




1. Self-check with my free chakra chart.

You can do a self-evaluation and make a reasonable guesstimate about which chakra is most likely imbalanced by checking your feelings and physical symptoms against my chakra chart. For example, if you problems with blood pressure or asthma, and feel like love is difficult for you, chances are there is some dysfunction in your fourth or heart chakra. My free chakra chart is a great place to get started.


2. Test your chakras with a pendulum.

This can be an effective method for determining the status of each chakra and it’s done with a partner. Have your partner hold the pendulum over each one of your chakras. Pendulums amplify whatever movement is occurring in the chakra itself, so if the movement is lopsided or spinning in the wrong direction, that chakra may need some work. If there is no movement, that chakra may be really blocked, or your partner may be holding the pendulum in the wrong place! Practice makes perfect with this technique, and my Hay House LifeForce Energy Healing Online Course devotes an entire week to teaching you how to test chakras with pendulums so you can become adept at this incredibly useful skill. And if you don’t have the right kind of pendulum for checking chakras, you may want to check this one out.


3. Attend energy healing courses or workshops.

This is a great way to really jump start your chakras. At my workshops, we do a lot of personal and group work that effectively clears everybody’s chakras in the room – it’s very powerful!


The main thing to remember is no matter how bad off your chakras are, they can be fixed! Energy healing provides a variety of ways to begin correcting the distortions in your chakras. From self study with my free chart to testing your chakras with a pendulum to workshops, energy healing offers many ways to get clear and stay clear, chakra-wise.

How to Let Go of the Past in Ten Minutes



Relationships Are Energy Exchanges


Take a moment to briefly think about every relationship you’ve ever had, or at least as many as you can remember: your parents, your siblings, your aunts, uncles, cousins, neighbors, boyfriends and girlfriends, best friends, enemies, competitors, bosses, coworkers, lovers, spouses, children, pets. I’m sure it’s a lot of people!


Now consider the fact that each relationship is an interaction of energy, a push-pull between you and the other person that is often uneven. Usually the imbalance is minor—you give a little more with some people, your kids for example, and take a little more with others, like perhaps your mother. And sometimes you do both within the same relationship at different times, like with your best friend or spouse. That’s natural.


But what happens to that energy you spent in those moments of give-and take interaction, particularly those painful moments when you gave away, by choice or by force, too much of your energy and personal power?


Lost Energy Can Be Reclaimed


That energy—your energy—gets trapped in the time and place it was expended and becomes disconnected from your personal field. Essentially, you lose it. The good news is, it can be reclaimed! There is a shamanic process I use in my energy healing courses that seems simple, but packs a powerful punch, and can be done in about ten minutes per relationship.




In shamanic traditions, there are said to be thin, web-like structures that are impelled outward from the human energy field by emotions and latch on to someone else’s energy field. Through these webs, in every relationship you can leave some of your energy with the other person and some of their energy can get stuck with you. Good or bad, the more emotional the relationship, the more connecting webs of energy between the people, the more potential for personal energy lost.


Sever Those Draining Energetic Bonds


This means that all emotional relationships have the possibility of being draining to your energy field, and therefore your chakras, and the rest of you, will also be drained. This is part of why break-ups and betrayals are so difficult and exhausting—emotionally charged situations literally steal your energy. Due to the energetic and emotional ties, you are also still attached to that person until you sever those energy-sucking bonds.


This is where energy healing can really help. The shamanic technique I teach in my Hay House LifeForce Energy Healing Online Course release the draining emotions associated with that person, return to you your energy from them, and remove any of their negative energy from your field. You will be amazed by the boost in energy and increase in emotional and mental clarity you will experience after you complete this incredible shamanic technique I learned from Carlos Castaneda.


Castaneda’s Shamanic Technique


Now, I know there is a lot of speculation out there as to whether or not Castaneda really studied with the Yaqui shaman Don Juan Matus out in the desert, or if Don Juan even existed at all. I’m sure Castaneda created these characters for the purpose of teaching ancient techniques he stumbled on doing his research in some dusty library. So, whether the tales are true or not doesn’t really matter for our purposes. What I am certain of through my experience as an energy healer and spiritual teacher, is that the practices he teaches do indeed work, and that’s why I want to share them with you.




Don Juan taught Castaneda and his other students how to directly perceive energy, just as energy healing and healing courses and workshops can help you perceive energy. In fact, Castaneda essentially took a lengthy healing course with Don Juan and came out transformed. His ten books exploring psychological and mystical arenas and questioning perception and reality were international bestsellers and heavily influenced popular and spiritual cultures.


Castaneda encourages freeing yourself from limited perceptions and beliefs, and making “the sorcerer’s crossing,” which is a leap forward in spiritual perceptions to expanded consciousness. I encourage the same, as it is the release of those limiting perceptions and opening the gates to higher states that allows for energy healing and spiritual advancement.


Clear Your Memories and Your Chakras


But of all his teachings, it’s the shamanic technique I teach in my Hay House LifeForce Energy Healing Online Course that is the most rewarding. This process has you clear out past memories and the emotions linked to those memories. Any emotional attachments you have to past hurts or wrongs can be released, and the energy you spent during that painful period can be reclaimed and returned to your energy field.


Think back to that list of relationships you made earlier and imagine all the energy you’d get back if you applied this technique to all of them! You can perform this process for anyone in your life, or everyone, as Castaneda was told to do, but even if you only apply the technique to a few core people who have significantly impacted you, the resulting positive effects will be noticeable.




In addition to enhanced clarity, greater energy, and feeling more grounded, if you learn this shamanic technique and reclaim all that lost energy, you will feel younger. This technique helps you fight aging since it is the loss of energy that ages you. This is also great news for anyone who has an illness, as it can also help speed the healing process.


Ideally, you should have a spiritual routine of meditation, journaling, clearing your chakras, and connecting with mother Earth, plus this incredible and effective technique should be added to your regime. You will recapture your personal energy, the vital foundation for your being, and dissolve any and all negative energy drains to the person you focus on during the process. You may need to complete the ten to fifteen minute process a few times for intense or long-term relationships, but eventually you will be completely free of all ties that drain to that person, the past events, and the feelings associated with those events. Can you imagine how much lighter you’ll feel? Trust me, this is a technique you need to learn.

3 Reasons Energy Medicine Is the Best Medicine



What if I told you there is a way to heal yourself of all types of distress without pills or hospital stays or side effects or surgeries? A painless procedure that has virtually zero recovery time? You’d probably say, “Sign me up!”


Whether your issues are mental, physical, emotional, or spiritual, energy medicine can address the root causes of the illness and heal you completely without touching a scalpel to your skin or even taking any invasive medical tests! As an energy healer and spiritual teacher, I’ve seen energy healing work its magic on tens of thousands of people who walk away from sessions with me healed and restored, with renewed energy and a lightness to their body. From a broken leg to a broken heart, energy healing can help you recover from your condition, and better yet, teach you how to heal yourself.


What Exactly Is Energy Medicine?


Interest in energy medicine is on the rise. Decades ago when I started studying and practicing energy healing, people thought it was pretty “out there” stuff. But over the years, energy medicine has become more and more common, and has gained more respect from the general public. These days, many people know someone who was healed by an energy healer, or have at least heard of this thing called energy medicine. But what is it exactly?


Energy exists all around us, on multiple levels or fields, and interpenetrates every living and non-living thing on this planet and beyond. Humans have their own personal energy fields that mirror what is happening in the body, which means that making changes in your personal energy field can make changes in your physical body. Likewise, changes in your body can affect your energy field. This is how energy medicine works: by tapping into the unified field of all energy, an energy healer manipulates your energy field to heal both your energy and, consequently, your body.




It Just Might Save Your Life


One of the ways you can test the health of your energy field is through the chakras. Your chakras are focal points of energy in your body that reflect the movement of energy in your field. An energy healer can sense where there are blockages or distortions in your chakras, and therefore your energy flow, and then clear the negative energy away so your chakra can function freely as it’s supposed to. This energy exchange that keeps you nourished is vital to all aspects of your health. This is why it’s important to keep your body and energy field free and clear of negative energy. Meditation, journaling, and staying grounded in nature are all good ways to begin the practice of clearing your chakras and allowing energy medicine to begin its healing process.


Whether you are seeking healing for yourself or a loved one, read these three reasons to give energy medicine a try. It just might save your life.


1. Energy medicine heals your whole being.

Your mind, body, spirit, and emotions are like threads weaved together into the tapestry of you. If you pull at one string, the whole structure unravels. If you only treat the physical symptoms of a condition or illness, you’ve left the rest of the person out of the equation. Emotional and spiritual pain can cause physical distress. Like the closed heart chakra contributing to high cholesterol, I’ve seen time and time again the very real effects that feelings can have on the body.


Each aspect of your being affects the other aspects, and traditional western medicine has a one-track mind: physical body issues only. It fails to treat the emotional, spiritual, or mental components of illness, which means it fails to treat the totality of the sick person. Western medicine is good at saving lives when the situation is acute, but energy medicine can prevent a condition from getting that far in the first place.


2. Energy medicine can prevent physical symptoms from developing.

One of the main advantages of energy medicine is its amazing ability to detect illnesses or conditions that are brewing in your energy field long before any symptoms appear in the body. Distortions in your chakras can be revealed through taking healing courses or working with an energy healer, and when they are caught early enough, you may not develop any physical ailments related to that distortion at all. Imagine having your sickness healed before you really even felt sick!




Most medical practitioners would agree that prevention is always the best medicine. Meditation, journaling, and healing courses are all tools to keep you on track, but if your health does become threatened, wouldn’t you want to know about it as soon as possible? Energy medicine allows for the soonest possible detection.


3. Zero negative side effects and almost zero recovery time.

Energy medicine is a painless procedure. Sometimes patients feel a warmth surrounding a physical healing and others find that an emotional healing will release a slew of tears. But there are no invasive procedures performed by faceless doctors in brightly lit and sterile hospital rooms, no stitches or crutches, no weeks of recovery time or tons of prescription pain pills.


Energy medicine works with the body to heal from within, so the physical recovery is minimal. Some patients feel immediately better and walk away from an energy healer like they’ve got clouds under their feet. Others feel a shift that grows and develops over the next few hours or days until the effects have fully unfolded. Either way, you should try to take it easy after an energy healing session, and be sure to drink plenty of water. But that is the extent of the “post-op procedure” and there’s no need to deal with insurance.


Some of the side effects of energy medicine that you might encounter include feelings of joy and relief, a lightened spirit, a sense of freedom, an emotional rebirth, a physical improvement, or any number of positive transitions in your mental, spiritual, physical, or emotional well-being.


Energy medicine has some of the most consistent results with the lowest risks. Why not give it a try?
