Intuitive Energy Work
Energy healing offers an opportunity to work with challenges and issues that present themselves in life in a sincere and balanced environment. Our bodies hold and store energy, which can sometimes manifest and present themselves in the physical or emotional bodies. Energy healing allows an individual the time to become more familiar with body, mind, and spirit, to look internally and allow issues to present themselves for consideration and resolve. Energy work builds confidence, releases past traumatic experiences, and provides a greater understanding of emotional triggers, while harnessing the techniques to produce positive results and transform behaviors.
Working with a skilled energy healer allows the individual to address their needs at a pace that suits their own comfort zone. The healer works within the energy fields of the body scanning the chakra systems with great care, while listening for guidance from the Divine. As the individual and healer move through the session there will be a symbiotic dialogue that leads both in understanding the guidance and receive its message. Energy work is directed with Divine Love at the center of the experience, so the individual feels safe to explore the true nature of whatever specific challenge is being addressed. Each session begins and concludes with a prayer requesting that a higher good be served throughout the individual’s journey.
