DE Reports: Interview with Ann Allen of Heal Your Grief – Heal Your Life

 

Ann Allen
Heal Your Grief-Heal Your Life
Healer, Intuitive, Certified Grief Recovery Specialist, Reiki Practitioner

Recently, I found myself trying to decide if I should go back to school for my master’s degree and pursue another career path. Some choices are clear to see which is the right one, but others can be a little murky. Then I remembered Ann. I had met her at the MBSE last year and got her email address because she had made such an impression on me. I decided to reach out and see if she could help me get clarity on this decision. This is how we met…

At the expo, both Ann and I (not together) were attending a small class learning about pendulums and the instructor opened up the floor for participants to ask questions or to share any insights or messages they were intuiting.  I asked a question to the class and Ann had made an impression on me because she seemed genuine in her ability and bit surprised by it too.  There also seemed to be a sense of urgency in that she had to share with me what she was picking up.   Ann very strongly felt and saw the presence of an angel next to me and she relayed a message to me.  Ann made a comment that maybe she should be sharing more of this gift with others as if she had been ‘hiding her light under a bushel’.   Since Ann had made such a strong connection to my guide/angel, I was intrigued and asked her for her email and if it would be okay if I contacted her at a later date.  Fast forward over a year later, I thought what the heck, so I pulled out Ann’s email. Follows is the interview I conducted a few days after my session with Ann. I am always fascinated by those that have a clear connection to the other side. I hope you enjoy the conversation.

Brandi:  We met at the 2016 Mind Body Spirit Expo last year.  I feel we were drawn there for similar reasons; for me it was mainly curiosity and embracing my true spiritual nature.   Tell me about what brought you to the Expo?

Ann:  Curiosity is always a motivator for me; so yes, that was one reason. Wanting to be stimulated, is another reason I attended. I really love being around “Like-minded” people. I can use the “jargon” and feel comfortable. I can learn new things and new ways!

Brandi:  You have a lovely accent, if I remember correctly – you are from New Zealand?

Ann:  Yes, the accent is New Zealand. I emigrated here in 1992 from Australia, where I had been living for 8 years. I am now proud to call myself a citizen of the United States of America, after completing my naturalization process a couple of years ago. I’m pretty sure I will always have my “accent”, but to be fair, I think you guys are the ones with the accent.

Brandi: Ha-Ha, yeah that makes sense! Congratulations on your citizenship😊

Brandi:  I was amazed that you remembered the details of our brief conversation at the expo over a year ago, but not really though because as we were speaking it seemed as though relaying the message to me was impactful for you too?

Ann: You are correct. It was a very strong message, both visually and audibly for me. I saw and heard things in detail. There was indeed a sense of urgency about it and thank you for listening. I remember it easily and partly because I have never seen such a tall spirit guide, or heard such beautiful singing! Hard to forget 😉

Brandi: Can you tell me the difference between a spirit guide and an angel? My guide or angel has been referred to as both?

Ann: That is a really good question. Here is a great link for you to peruse: https://www.keen.com/articles/psychic/what-is-the-difference-between-spirit-guide-and-angel

Brandi:  In our recent session, in a life coaching style, you were very good at giving advice in helping me to gain clarity on what I really want to do, but sprinkled in was what you were intuiting from your guides and mine.  Can you explain how you receive messages?  Are they auditory, visual, or just a sense of knowing?

Ann: Visual – I see things such as guides, shapes, colors, places, people who have passed, images or objects (clairvoyant), auditory – I hear words, phrases, sounds (clairaudience), a strong knowing – I just “know” something (claircognizance), physical and emotional states of people and things – I will often get feelings from houses, buildings etc., (clairsentient), empathetic – I can feel person’s, animal’s, place, emotions (clairempathy). They can be all of the above, or just some, or sometimes a “mish-mash”. It somehow makes sense to me. I also use psychometry – reading personal objects and have been known to get some good info from tea leaves.

Brandi: I haven’t had a psychometry reading before. I am always looking for a strong validating sign when I get a reading. Perhaps, psychometry is the next thing I should try!

Ann: I would be happy to do one for you!

Brandi: Thank you! I will keep that in mind😊 I understand that after a long time of keeping your gifts to yourself you have finally decided to pursue healing work, but you also have a day job.  Can you tell me a little bit about your background?

Ann: I am an RN by trade and have been in the medical field for over 40 years. At present, I am an instructor (day job), for Home Care Aides.  I have been told for many years that I am a “Healer”. I have resisted that title for a couple of very good reasons: 1. I didn’t fully believe it (spiritual healing in general) and I didn’t have the faith in myself to call myself one, or think I had “enough” or the right abilities and 2: I had the image of a “Healer” as someone who was “Hippy Dippy” or very “Woo Woo” and wore Birkenstocks and have a flower in their hair (major stereotyping, but you get the point!). I didn’t see myself as either. I just read people, places and things.

Brandi: I can totally relate to the major stereotyping. I am more of an explorer of the metaphysical and I love to share what I learn along the way because I believe there are so many resources out there for people to connect to healing and wholeness, but because of stereotypes people steer clear. It was about 7 years ago when I finally embraced that aspect of myself and it was so liberating! So, what prompted you to pursue alternative healing work?

Ann: When I was at the MBSE, last year, I entered a lecture that had started and the gentleman giving the lecture was saying: “…. step into yourself”. Boy, I had a huge “Ah ha” moment. As some people like to say: “That really resonated with me”. I then went on to partake in other lectures and one of them was Gail Thackery. She was giving a great lecture and was talking about the “natural healers” of the world and pointed to a couple of people in the room and then, with heart-pounding, OMG, yes, she really is pointing to me, moments, I realized, “Hhmmmnnn, maybe I should actually start taking this seriously”. I was speaking to Gail afterwards and asked her if she really meant what she said about me being natural healer and she said “yes” and went on to describe what may happen as I evolve. It was very uplifting, encouraging and totally scary.

Brandi: That could be a whole other conversation! I would love to hear about it sometime. I was at Gail’s lectures too and she pointed to me and said, “You want to be more psychic” along with some other tid bits. She was right, lol! I have good intuition, but I so admire the gifts that you have.

Ann: Well, thank you. I really believe we all have some sort of ESP We are hard-wired as a species, for survival. EG: If you have the hair on the back of your neck stand up on end, when you can’t even necessarily see danger…you get a funny feeling about someone, or something just doesn’t feel “right”…we often shut it down, but deep inside it is a feeling we can’t ignore.

Brandi:  Have you always had the ability to connect to the other side?  At what age did you first experience this ability?

Ann: I really can’t remember. I’m not one of those kids that could “see dead people”. I realize I have always been very perceptive as a child. It probably wasn’t until I was in early adulthood that things started to really make themselves known. I remember forming a friendship with a fellow RN who was very spiritual and things started to awaken and then when I started hanging out with psychic people and went to meetings, things really started to happen. I was mostly scared and started to “shut it all off”. I saw and felt things that I couldn’t control and didn’t know what to do with them.

Brandi: That sounds like a friend of mine. She’s always freaked out by her strong intuition/knowing. I think she should embrace it and encourage it, lol! Any resources you would recommend?

Ann: I would encourage anyone who feels they need some guidance to start with meditation and ask for help – “please help me find”, “show me someone who can help me”…ALWAYS be very careful how you ask for something. BE VERY SPECIFIC about what you want – boy I learned that the hard way J When you are sincere and it is for the good of all concerned, things will be made known to you, or you will meet someone, find an article in a magazine, that may lead you to something else, etc..

Brandi:  I’m assuming you can’t really shut it off?

Ann:   Actually, I do. I think the only way I can explain it is that I am always aware, the same way a mother is always listening with “one ear”, for her baby that may need attention and then when she is with the baby, she gives it full attention. If I am alerted, I give my full attention.

Brandi:  Is it just as easy for you to receive messages for yourself or is it easier to give messages to others?

Ann: It really depends on the day and the situation.

Brandi: That makes sense. Do you ever receive messages for someone that you know you are not supposed to pass along?

Ann: That has not occurred at any time, to date. I have had messages for people and very cautiously approached them to see if they are open to hearing what I have to say. Obviously, I need to be very careful how I approach and what I say.

Brandi:  Are some people just harder to read?

Ann: If people want to be read, they allow themselves to be open to it; that has been my experience. I would never try to read someone other than whatever I am picking up from them. That would be intrusive and disrespectful, in my opinion.

Brandi:  I can attest to that –  I felt very respected by you during my reading and there was no sense of intrusion.  Tell me about the new business you are getting ready to launch and the types of healing work you will be doing?

Ann: Heal your Grief – Heal your Life: I help people find that place within themselves, that they need to come to terms with and support them while they find a way/place they can live with and feel comfortable with in their own skin, using modalities such as Grief Recovery (Grief Recovery Specialist), Reiki (In June I will be taking level 3 of Reiki – Reiki Master), intuitive coaching, readings, as they may need. No one size fits all. We all have different needs and therefore different ways of getting to where we need to go, therefore I am also building a referral system of other practitioners; e.g.: massage therapists, acupuncturists etc…so my clients feel as though they have options. These practitioners will be strongly vetted so I feel comfortable with the referrals.

I see a healer/reader/life coach etc., as someone who has a great deal of responsibility to the client and it should be honored and taken seriously. It is a very intimate  and vulnerable time for them when you are connecting with someone in such a manner. You may see, hear or know things that are very personal  or private. Everything any of my clients say to me or anything I see or hear for them, is held in strict confidence.

Brandi: I felt that coming from you. You have a very calming, compassionate presence that will make your clients feel at ease

Ann: Thank you. I appreciate that.

Brandi:  Your Welcome! Now for my last question: For me, sometimes following this path can feel like I don’t really fit in with the mainstream or the metaphysical types. What advice would you give to others who might feel this same way?

Ann: I love this question, because I was so ignorant of the fact that there is so much difference between us all. That may sound silly, but it is true. Just because you are metaphysically minded, or spiritual or whatever else you may call yourself, we don’t fit into a mold. Yes, there are definitely similarities between us, but we all have different ways of doing and “being”. We all drive different cars to get to the game.

More and more people started to ask me: “are you intuitive or sensitive”? When I finally had the courage to tell people: “I am a healer”, or “yes, I hear and see things”; when I finally owned who and what I am, I actually felt a sense of relief, peace and a stronger sense of self. People and family always knew I was different than them and probably thought/think I am crazy. I have always had a rebellious nature, so I am different and will do things differently to mainstream, no matter what that mainstream may look like. Own it – be who you are. “Come out” to the world and you won’t be so scared. Be true to your own way and being! (One of the Reiki precepts I live by!)

Brandi: I love that- it totally resonates with me and is the reason why I blog! Thank you Ann for this insightful interview. I am honored to share your gifts with the readers. I wish you the best in your new venture: Heal your Grief – Heal your Life.

Ann is located in Vancouver, WA  and can be reached by phone at 360.721.3433 or email at aallenusa@gmail.com if you would like to set up an appointment.  I will update as Ann launches her business website.

Yours Truly,

DE Reports: EFT Tapping

I participated in a free online ten day summit learning about and practicing EFT Tapping, produced by Nick Ortner of The Tapping Solution.  EFT is the acronym for ‘Emotional Freedom Technique’ and it is the practice of tapping on nine acupressure points of the body related to the meridian acupuncture points as known in Chinese medicine.  The reasons for doing tapping are many and include:  stress and pain management, weight loss, clearing past trauma, dealing with limiting financial beliefs, even enhanced athletic performance and the list go on!  The summit is in its ninth year (offered annually in February) and has had over 2 million participants in that time.  Apparently, this tapping thing is catching on, which makes sense because science is beginning to back up the outcomes with more and more published studies showing up in medical publications.

My simple understanding of how EFT Works:

Many times people experience strong negative reactions/emotions each time they revisit a painful memory.  Tapping helps to release the intensity of the negative emotions by sending calming signals to the amygdala part of the brain.  When negative emotions (fear, anger, anxiety, etc.) arise the fight or flight state is triggered which originates in the amygdala.  You can not exist in a state of calm while simultaneously triggering the fight of flight response.  That is why tapping is effective.   Tapping while thinking about the stressful event (or pain in the body) rewires the brain signals to associate calm feelings with the stressful event, therefore no longer triggering the amygdala into the fight or flight response when the stressful event comes into mind.   For some people, they may simply tap for pain relief or weight loss, but then discover a deeper layer – an emotional aspect that is causing the pain or extra weight which may not be known or even connected to the pain/weight at first glance.    Which leads to tapping to clear the emotional aspect and in the process the physical pain is often relieved or at the very least lessened.  It takes time and more than one session, but there is science backing up the validity of the practice.

My experience with EFT:

I found the practice to be very relaxing as it sends calming signals through the body to the brain.  I felt more calm and relaxed after a few minutes of tapping.   Anybody can do it and you don’t need a facilitator, plus you can try it out for free.  There are a ton of YouTube videos on how to do it for any reason you may consider trying this practice.  For me, my experience was that I was tapping to relieve physical pain and in the process forgotten memories surfaced. I hadn’t made the connection that the two were related but tapping did in fact lessen my physical pain.   If you are interested in learning more about EFT and why it works or how to do it check out this link:   thetappingsolution.com .

DE Reports: Aura Photogragh

I’ve always wanted to get an Aura Photograph, which is an image of the electromagnetic field that surrounds an individuals body. image A specialty camera measures the vibrations of that energy field and then translates it into a color image which can be interpreted and is unique to each individual (you can read more about it here).  I finally got mine at the Mind, Body, Spirit Expo in Portland last weekend.

Judy Lekic of Alternative Changes  took the photograph and gave a two minute interpretation of what she saw.  I’ve attached the image, however it is a picture of a photo so there is a glare and the clarity is not as vibrant as the original, but none the less, you’ll get the idea as you listen along:-)

DE Reports: Dianetics

dmsmh igen nep.inddDisclaimer:  I am not, never have been, nor will ever be a Scientologist.  Now you may read on without concern for my well being:-)

During my visit at a recent conference, I noticed a vibrant booth that was promoting the book, Dianetics, the Modern Science of Mental Health.  I love to read and apparently I’m a sucker for marketing; after all, it reads “The #1 New York Times Best Seller” across the cover so I stood back surveying the scene.  There was a large display of the book with the cover image of a spewing volcano and the author’s name in gold foil in large print, Ron L. Hubbard.  There were people milling around and a few taking a seat for some kind of assessment.  They were holding metal batons and a meter would detect their stress level.  As I was taking this all in I was trying to place the author’s name.  I knew it sounded familiar, was it that movie director, you know the one from Happy Days?  If so, I would read one of his books.  And then, I was interrupted mid thought…

A woman from the Dianetics booth noticed me from afar and literally took me by the arm from the aisle.  I wasn’t even standing next to the booth.  The next thing I know I am sitting in a chair with the metal baton in my hand.  She asks me if I know what Dianetics is.  I say, it sounds familiar, but I can’t place it.  Anyway, she goes on to tell me it is the science of mind over matter, that you can heal or cure any mental, emotional or physical ailment with the power of your mind and Dianetics is the science that shows you how.  Well of course that sounds intriguing.  The woman is very engaging and asks me to talk about something I find stressful, the meter goes all the way to the end to show verification that what I say is indeed very stressful.  Then she gets me talking about other areas of interest and I forget I am holding the baton.  I don’t even know what the meter is saying.  Damn, she is good.  As the conversation winds down and it is time to move on  she asks if I am interested in the book.   I sort of am, what the heck maybe I could learn something and it is a best seller after all.  Just as the transaction goes through I realize who the author is, the founder of Scientology, not Ron Howard!  I say wait a minute, is this related to Scientology?  The reply is yes, this book is the foundation of what Scientology is based upon.  I respond,  “Okay, well I am not really interested after all”.  She asks,  “Why not, what have you heard about Scientology?”

I can see where this is going and I am not going to take the bait anymore!  I simply say that I am not one to follow any particular path, and that I enjoy the truths of  many religions, but what I am really thinking is, I’m not interested in Scientology because I think it is cultish, the founder’s mental health has been questioned, slave ships, Tom Cruise and his divorces, bad press all around – it’s all coming to me now!  But I know she is armed and prepared for everything I am thinking and ready to defend Scientology, she knows this is the perception.  I shut it down and take the book and go with hesitation.  The woman from the booth tells me to just read it, she reminds me, “you said yourself you are interested in many truths and that you like to look at topics from all sides even when you don’t agree.”  Damn it!  She is using my own words against me.  She tells me to please read it and if I don’t like it I can get my money back.  Whatever, so I leave feeling conflicted with a heavy book weighing down my shoulder and I move on slightly irritated.

The next day I go back to the conference and I have decided that I am going to return the book and get my money back.  I realize once inside the huge conference center that I had left the book in my car the night before because of the weight.  Damn it, I am not going back to the parking garage.  I am so bothered by this.  It is only $25, but it is the principle of it.  Once back at home I am still thinking about this damn book.  I think, well I could mail it back and request a refund, but then I quickly realize that I do not want to engage anymore.  So then I think, maybe I should donate the book, but that bothers me too because its like throwing away money and supporting a cause I am not interested in.  And then it hits me.  What am I so resistant for?  I am going to turn this into an assignment.  I am going to read Dianetics with three highlighters.  One to highlight the supporting text that backs up my negative feelings.  After all, when asked why I am not interested in Scientology what better way than to cite direct quotes.  Secondly, I am interested in what the hook is for readers.  What draws people in?  And lastly, I am going gold mining.  I am going to look for the nuggets of truth no matter how buried because any religion usually has some universal truth within it, right?

I no longer feel irritated that I have Dianetics in my possession.  I am sure the stress meter would indicate the same;-)  However, I am not sure when I will begin the assignment, but I will report back when I’m finished!

Yours Truly,

DE Reports: What Does the Year Ahead Hold for You?

This is 40!

This is 40!

I discovered a new birthday practice last year, tried it out and was astonished at how uncannily accurate it was at giving me a glimpse into the year ahead for myself personally.  My story follows, but first I have to give you the nuts and bolts of how to do this yourself.  You can do this if you know the exact time of your birth.  You don’t have to understand astrology or even have an interest in it to participate, but you do need to obtain a solar return chart because the moment the sun is in the same exact place as it was when you were born changes from year to year.  For about five dollars you can get your solar return chart here.  I prefer the Merriman’s Report and I recommend Café Astrology because they offer reports at a much discounted rate compared to anywhere else on the web.  Okay, so when you get your report you’ll know the exact moment of your birthday.  From there you will journal your day as it unfolds.  For me, I like to do it in bullet points by time and reference the interesting parts and go back and fill in later so I can enjoy the day!  Each day is equal to four minutes and each month is equal to two hours.  It is important to set your intention for the day, for the energy of the day reflects the theme of the year ahead.   Last year was a year of revelation and healing for me and my solar return chart journal of the day gave me a heads up.  Sort of like the background music of a movie.  The context of what is happening is often set my the music.   This is what this practice will do for your year ahead.  Here is what unfolded for me…

Last year, I was really excited about this new birthday practice, so much so I that I got ahead of myself and was ten minutes early in acknowledging the sacred moment of my birth.  I suppose that showed up as symbolically needing to practice patience, and understanding that everything comes in due time.  Just the opposite is true if you are late for the sacred moment, it could show up symbolically as being late to many things throughout the year.  Anyway, what comes next is really intriguing.

My mom and I decided to begin the day with a beautiful hike both of us had never been on before.

View from Tillamook Trailhead Hike

View from Tillamook Trailhead Hike

It was a perfect sunny day with gorgeous scenery.  Our plan was to hike four miles in to Hiker’s Camp on the Tillamook Trailhead and turn around and hike the four miles back.  However, about halfway in we came upon deep, deep muck!  It was uncommon in August for the hike to be this muddy.  We didn’t think it would be for too long, but as we hiked along there appeared to be no end in site.  Hikers were turning around and others that were coming the opposite direction told us the muck went on for at least another mile or two.  We had a choice to make, turn around or continue on.  I was determined to continue on, how bad could it really get?  My mom agreed.  After all, it was my birthday and we didn’t know when we could return.  So on we pressed!

I was trying to strategically hike through the deep mud, and go around, but I got frustrated and mistepped.  I ended up ankle deep in mud.  At that point, there was no more pussyfooting around.   I threw my arms up and said, “Oh well, at least now I can tromp straight on through, I’m already covered in it!”  So I went head on through the muck as my mom managed to stay relatively tidy.  I did have to wait for her to catch up to me though, and in the moment I commented that there was some serious symbolism going on here.  The beautiful hike turned into a mud bog, and out of determination I went straight through the mud even though it was uncomfortable.  I was much faster than my mom who was going around every obstacle at a much slower pace, but I wanted to hike, not be on an obstacle course and I didn’t care if I got dirty.  We weren’t making very good time.

We eventually made it to hikers camp, and sat down to enjoy our lunch.  My sandwich was a big mush pile, it had been beat up through the entire hike in my backpack.  My mom was bummed because she made the sandwich for me.   I ate the non-mushy parts and tossed the rest in the fire pit.  Hmm, more symbolism I supposed.  What the hell was all of this supposed to mean?

Because we had taken so long to get to hikers camp we had another choice to make. Read More

DE Reports: SUP Yoga

I just love receiving an experience as a gift.  A dear friend of mine gave me a SUP Yoga Introductory class from Clatsop Paddle for my birthday this month.  I actually like saying SUP Yoga; the way it rolls off my tongue.  I say it with a little extra emphasis on the SUP part.  As a matter of fact, I thought SUP Yoga was a catch phrase, like shortened lingo for ‘what’s up yoga’ or something.  It wasn’t until driving to the class that it hit me, SUP is an acronym for stand up paddleboard.  Oh well, I still like saying it.  And I like the practice even better!

I went into the class not knowing what to expect.  I had never been on a paddle board before.  I was fairly confident in my yoga ability though, and it was comforting to find that I had taken yoga from the instructor before (Michelle, over at the Hot Spot Yoga studio).   I went into the class fully prepared.  I had rented a wet suit and life jacket, I got the booties.  I was fully outfitted for the cold I was sure to endure from falling into the lake multiple times as I tried to balance on the paddleboard.  Turns out though, that the lake was warm, the day was hot, I didn’t need the life jacket as I can swim well enough, especially in a calm lake in an anchored position.  The booties I didn’t even wear; I like to do yoga barefoot.  But, what was really nifty, is the board itself.   You can strap all your gear underneath the bungees on the board and make a day trip with all the gear you’ll ever need.  I definitely need to do that someday!

I must have had a really nice board because it was easy to find my center of balance.  I was able to keep my camel poseeyes closed throughout the yoga piece and I literally felt as if it was just me and the voice of my instructor on that lake.  It was nice as we were all able to spread out on the lake with enough space to not hear each others deep breathing, or shifting from position to position.  All my uncertainties of knowing nothing about paddleboarding vanished as well as the tensions in my body.  I had never connected so deeply in a yoga session as I did that day on the lake.  I was even able to get into the camel pose without pain (chiropractic and massage sessions have been doing me wonders!).  I realized after the fact that I was basically in a meditative state the whole time, as my mind was clear and free of chatter.  I was totally in the present.  I felt so energized after the class and will definitely return.

I would recommend this to anybody who is a little familiar with yoga as one of my friends that attended the class felt that it was difficult for her to get into ‘the zone’ as she was not that familiar with the yoga poses, but she was comfortable on the board otherwise.  My other friend that attended, enjoys yoga, but was fearful of her perceived lack of balance.  Turns out, she was comfortable on the paddleboard too.  No balance issues there!  I’ll be back for more, next time with just the bare essentials, ready to go!

Yours Truly,

DE Reports: Interview and Reading with Healer, Jennie Williams

image: http://www.mind-body-spirit-group.com

I met Jennie when I first started my blog.  I found her to be very insightful and I really enjoy her direct approach in her view of life.  We became friends through our mutual blogs and I thought it would be interesting to see her work in action.  Follows is an interview I did with Jennie, followed up with an actual reading she conducted for me.  Please feel free to comment, I am sure Jennie would be happy to answer any questions.  I have included links throughout this post to connect you to Jennie and the references made.  Enjoy!

Interview with a Healer: Jennie Williams

Brandi: You are a Healer, what exactly does that mean? What would you like the readers to know about you and your process?

Jennie: How amazing? Someone wants to interview me! I guess as a healer one of the biggest things I recognize and want to teach others is that we heal by relationship. And right here is a good example. Brandi, as you give me this sort of amazing recognition I don’t know what I feel! I don’t know if I am hot or cold – whether I want to protect myself from being seen or reveal myself. My diaphragm is tight and so are my shoulders as I write this. I have waited so long for some recognition and now I have some, the good feelings are rattling the patterns of grief in me at feeling completely unrecognized and misunderstood. Once the patterns have been rattled I know the next stage is that they will shift. It is like having a bottle of dirty water and pouring in clean water in until there is no longer any dirty water left in the bottle.

Brandi: I love your analogies! Of course I want to interview you. I am intrigued by what you have to offer and want to learn more! So you can read energy, do you do energy work too, or just counsel based on what you see?

Jennie: Yes, I can read energy in people in person or in photographs or on television and also in environments. I use it making daily decisions in my own life but it has taken me a long time to trust what I know. For instance if I need to work with a therapist or a dentist I will check out their picture first! And I will check out a picture of the environment we will be working in if that is possible. Or I could use it when choosing a school for my child or a B & B . . . anyway enough of that!

 I have worked with my hands doing reiki, shiatsu, working with crystals and chakras. This was a journey God took me on about 13 years ago. I worked with people and we felt changes happen, sometimes quite dramatically and I made records of the changes. I found that when people returned, a significant change had not taken place or lasted. I felt that working with people’s energy wasn’t enough. Somehow I needed to be working with the whole person. So I started to counsel people but I felt a strange feeling of being too much pulled into their world and their issues and struggling to find a way out. Then I started doing energy readings of what I saw in people’s bodies and drawing little charts for them. This made me feel sort of powerful but something still wasn’t right. Some people seemed overwhelmed by what I told them, others just wanted the diagnosis, others were disappointed because I didn’t have a quick fix and some just came to test me. At this point I felt I needed more than just being able to diagnose. I needed to be able to give people a healing experience. I can’t remember why I started looking at books on dreams but suddenly I felt drawn to buy a book called ‘Become the Dream – The Transforming Power of Hypnotic Dreamwork’ by Randal Churchill and I was transfixed by what I read. Randall was using people’s dreams as a basis for a similar work I do with the body areas. I knew I had found a way to help people actually have an experience of healing whilst in a session with me. I hoped this would give them the know-how and confidence to start to work in this way by themselves too.

Upcoming post for the ‘DE Reports’…

I just wanted to let everybody know that I am working on my first post for DE Reports.     I’m looking forward to posting in this category as it where I will share my explorations into alternative healing, metaphysics and spirituality.  The post I am working on now is about an energy reading I received and how the chi is flowing in my body and where it is disconnected; the possible reasons and the recommended ways to improve the flow for full connection throughout the body.  Stay tuned for more…
