Frequently Asked Questions

Energetic Healing/Reiki related Questions

How does Energetic Healing differ from Reiki?   Reiki is a form of Energetic Healing.  The reason I’ve chosen to differentiate what I personally do is because Reiki isn’t the only energy I use during sessions.  Usui Reiki is actually more restrictive than some other forms of energetic healing in that there are specific hand positions that are used during a session. What is Reiki?   Reiki is the Japanese word for the life energy that flows through all things in the Universe.  The practice of Reiki is a healing modality using this Universal energy to clear and balance a person’s energetic body (or field if you prefer) to aid the physical body in maintaining its own health. How does Energetic Healing/Reiki work?   In the context of an energetic healing session, the practitioner is a conduit for healing energy.  During your session, the practitioner “reads” your energy to identify areas where the flow of energy is sluggish or blocked.  The practitioner clears any blockages and then directs the healing energy to the areas that need to be replenished.  Reiki is an “intelligent” energy, it knows where it needs to go, what it needs to do, and what is best for the situation (which may not be what we originally intend).  Other healing energies used may need some “instruction” from the practitioner, but all the healing energies used all work toward the highest good for the client. Will Energetic Healing/Reiki cure illness?   No.  energetic healing doesn’t “cure” anything.  Energetic healing/Reiki can be a benefit when we have an illness or are over-taxed due to stress by keeping the energetic pathways free-flowing.  If our energy can flow freely, our bodies are better able to cope with daily stressors and potential or existing illness. Will Energetic Healing/Reiki keep me from getting sick?   Maybe.  There is currently no way to quantify the effects of energy work on our bodies.  Speaking from personal experience, I can say that by regularly clearing my energetic pathways I tend to stay healthier and have heard the same from others. How can Energetic Healing/Reiki help me?   The “ki” (energy) present within an individual should be strong and free flowing.  When this is so, the body and mind are in a positive state of health.  But when our energy becomes weak or blocked it can lead to physical and/or emotional imbalance.  An energetic healing/Reiki session helps to clear the energy pathways within the body so that your body can keep itself as healthy as possible. Why do I need to see a practitioner, can’t anyone use this energy?   Practitioners who deal with healing energies have been trained to feel and direct the healing energy directly so that we may clear any blockages and strengthen the flow within the energetic body.  In the case of Reiki energy, the process that we go through during training includes a series of attunements that modify our own energy field so that we can utilize the Reiki energy properly. How are your sessions different than those offered by other practitioners?   Each session that I perform is different and tailored to the individual client’s needs.  Some practitioners prefer to use a set method within their practice but I prefer to remain flexible and allow my intuition and the specific energy from the client to dictate how a session progresses.  In addition I will include aromatherapy, crystals, or singing bowls if needed. Do you teach Reiki?   I am certified to teach Reiki and may do so in the future, but for now I don’t feel I’m ready to teach. What is an Energetic Healing Distance Session?   Because Energetic Healing deals solely with energy, it can be done without touch or even needing to be in the same room.  During a distance session, the practitioner is able to read and direct energy without regard to spacial limitations.  A distance healing works just as well as an office visit, the only difference is that direct (physical) communication between practitioner and client is reduced.  All distance sessions are done via telephone to maintain the proper feedback from the client during the session. Do I need to bring my pet to your office for an Energetic Healing Pet Session?   No.  Animals are more comfortable in their home and are more likely to accept the healing energy there.  If you are within 25 miles of LAX I may agree come to your home to perform the session for your pet.  Outside this range, we will arrange to do a Distance session for your pet.  Please note that I will not work with aggressive animals directly ... if your dog or cat doesn’t like new people or has bitten anyone in the past, make sure to arrange a Distance session through my online shop instead of requesting a home visit. Why don’t you offer home sessions for humans?   My office is setup to energetically support healing sessions.  Most people have others living with/around them and the energy from others can hamper the healing process.  It is not practical to do this sort of work in an environment where energies that aren’t supportive of the process exist, nor is it feasible to spend extra time to clear out those energies prior to a session. Why don’t you answer the phone?   I am more interested in helping others to create a healthy balance in their lives and find that a phone nearby only serves to distract from the healing energy in the office space. Is it appropriate to tip an Energetic Healing practitioner?   It’s always acceptable to offer a gratuity to anyone performing a service for you, but it’s really up to you.  As with other services, a tip says “thanks for doing a really good job” or “I really like the service I got”.  But I don’t believe that energetic practitioners get upset if you don’t tip ... I know I don’t anyway.

Light Language related Questions

What is a Light Language grid good for?   Pretty much anything that involves any sort of improvement or stabilization effect.  I’ve used grids to create more harmonious communication at home, “tune-up” my own mental and emotional processes, aid in spiritual growth, create a more peaceful workspace, and even to aid the adjustment period when bringing a new pet into our home. What’s the difference between the Stationary, Intermediate, and Advanced grids?   Stationary grids work by associating your spaces (home, car, office) or personal communication devices (computer, cell phone, tablet) with your personal chakras.  They are used to harmonize your spaces/devices to your energy field.   Intermediate and advanced grids work by establishing an energy flow to aid your attempts at reaching a specific goal.  Intermediate grids work in the near term and frequently stop working after a set date.  Advanced grids are for long term change and work more slowly.

Astrology related Questions

What information is in your astrological reports?   Natal charts (birth charts) contain a detailed description of how each planetary aspect can affect who you are.  Compatibility and Relationship charts compare the planetary aspects between two people and describes how those aspects might affect their interactions. What information do you need to prepare an astrological report?   The date and time of birth as well as the birth location (city and state) are required for each person in the chart.  For a natal, solar return, or transit chart that’s just you (or whomever you want the report for, perhaps a child).  For one of the relationship or compatibility charts this information is needed for both the people to be charted.
