Since beginning my journey with intuitive energy healing in 2004, I've had the pleasure of working with many different people. Everyone from the believer in "all things spiritual" to the ones who "don't really understand this stuff, but thought they'd give it a try." There have been those who've tried everything and nothing worked, and had nothing to lose by trying energy healing. And the proverbial Doubting Thomas' who sit before me and say, "I don't really believe in any of this stuff."
I love Doubting Thomas' because I can relate to them. I personally don't take things on face value, I need hard evidence I can sink my teeth into before I'll believe something. I definitely have a "prove it to me" aspect to my personality. Even though working with Doubting Thomas' are challenging, they're one of my favorite types of clients to work with. I respect their skeptical nature and they're inability to believe in something, unless they see it or experience for themselves. But above all else, I just LOVE how Spirit always comes through for them by delivering a personal message or a personal feeling that only they know to be true.
The Biblical story of Doubting Thomas is a shining example of the skeptic who refuses to believe anything without proof. Ralph E. Wilson in 2003 relayed his view of the Doubting Thomas story and wrote how the Apostles proclaimed that they saw Jesus after his resurrection: to which Thomas responded, "I don't believe it. I don't believe a word of it. You're seeing what you want to see. Jesus is dead, I saw him die...and the sooner you accept it the better off you'll be. Give it up! Unless I see the nail marks on his hands and put my hand into his side I will not believe it!"
Years ago I had a client sitting before me who had the following response to my routine question of what he wanted to focus on in his session: "I'm only here because my wife wanted me to come. I don't really believe in this stuff." I graciously let him know that I was sorry, but unfortunately I wouldn't be able to help him and the session would be futile since he was only there because his wife wanted him to be. He vehemently responded, "No, no I'm open-minded. I want to see what she's talking about." So, I suggested that we stop talking and begin the energy healing part of the session and let the energy do what it does.
After his energy healing was complete, he stepped off the table, sat down in the chair, and I proceeded to give him the intuitive impressions that I received during his treatment. I gave him information about his work, his personality, and how to manage his employees at work. Long story short, he walked out believing that there was definitely something to "all this stuff" because as Spirit always does, a specific message came through for him, telling him exactly what he needed to hear, in the exact phraseology that he needed to hear it. I've come to believe that whenever I come across a Doubting Thomas they're searching for a way to connect with something larger than themselves.
No matter what your belief system - Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim, agnostic, etc. - I'm absolutely 100% certain that Spirit is around you waiting to engage. All you need to do is allow it to happen. In the Doubting Thomas story, Thomas needed to stick his finger in Jesus' flesh before he'd believe he was resurrected and real. But evidence of Spirit can be as simple as kindness between strangers, hearing a particular song on the radio, or seeing a butterfly across your path. Spirit shows up in many forms. I invite you to believe in the perfection of Spirit in your life and notice how Spirit reveals itself to you. Take a moment to see what shows up in your life - and BELIEVE it.

I AM hopeful and inspired by life right now, and everything that is happening points to a renewed sense of encouragement. After all the changes I have experienced, I'm starting to recognize the hope that comes with new beginnings."
If you're in a situation that makes you uncomfortable and you're not sure what to do, always consult your inner intuitive guidance. It may be telling you to withdraw your energy out of a particular situation or circumstance, or be telling you to work through it.
You can get drawn into others’ energy by being too vulnerable and open. If this continually happens you'll need to learn how to place protective mechanisms in place to preserve your precious energy resources.
One classic technique is to visualize a circle of silver mirrors surrounding you (the mirrors face outwards, away from you) that reflect or bounce off any negative energy away from you. You can also use gold mirrors that will both bounce off energies, transmuting them.
Performing Namaste towards someone recognizes the divine spark in them. Namaste conveys: "The God in me greets the God in you. The Spirit in me meets the same Spirit in you." Namaste recognizes the equality of all, honoring the sacredness everyone acknowledging the dualistic nature of this world while putting forth the effort to harmonize Oneness.
When you practice Namaste, the physical process of bringing hands together into the namaste position while simultaneously speaking, "namaste" is equivalent to chanting a mantra. The sacred sound ‘Namaste’ has a quasi-magical value, corresponding to a creative energy change. This transformation aligns oneself in harmony with the vibration of the cosmos itself. Namaste is a social transaction: a greeting when people meet each other and an expression of joy at meeting each other.
The Borromean Rings encompass the vesica pisces as a symbol of Unity. The Borromean Rings grid is beneficial to support Unity and when a group, community family needs support to unite to achieve a particular goal or a wholistic intention such as harmony.
Borromean Rings appeared in early Buddhist art, Viking rune stones and Roman mosaics. The term "Borromean Rings" arose in the 15th century after the family who incorporated them in their family crest. Christians used this symbol to represent unity and the Holy Trinity.
Besides being a symbol for the strength and power of unity, Borromean Rings also represent the karmic laws of the universe and the interconnectedness of life. Just like the Butterfly Effect, one should expect a reaction out of every action made. Even branches of Science and Mathematics have used the Borromean Rings as a model to explain the universe, through Geometry and Molecular Architecture.
Discarnated spirits are aspects of a soul that didn't fully transition when they left the physical body when they died. During shamanic reiki sessions I often come across discarnated spirits that are finally ready to fully transition. I always see the "stairway to heaven" with the divine masters, angels, their loved ones (including animals) and I always work with Master Jesus when doing shamanic reiki.
Giving reiki to a discarnated spirit at any time before their full transition back to Creator God, while they're still in this dimension, will actually Lighten/heal/transmute the denser energy that kept them stuck in this Realm so they can "lighten up" to become more Light just before they fully ascend back to God/Infinite Divine Intelligence/Source energy to be fully healed in accord with Divine Will.
It's such a beautiful and loving process that supports all life: the soul, the person on the table, and the entire consciousness of the planet.
