How Do Energy Healing Practitioners Work With Energy?

The practitioner makes hand movements above and around the body; hovering hands without touch or lightly making contact. The same techniques energy healers use in-person can also be done through distance healing as if the patient was physically present. Many practitioners have acquired knowledge from a variety of different teachers so how we incorporate these tools will be unique to each practitioner. However, generally speaking, energy healers are working with and channelling the universal source energy that is always with us and always around us. We work as a conduit and allow this energy to flow through us and into the clients energy field. From this connection we intuitively receive information which allows us to create room for alignment and balance in the clients energy field and strengthen the body’s natural self healing capabilities.

What Is Therapeutic Touch?

Therapeutic Touch is a safe, noninvasive, alternative hands on healing treatment that can incorporate light touch on the body but can also be done with no contact. The practitioner makes slow, sweeping hand movements while channelling energy into the patient through the palms of their hands to encourage the body’s natural healing process. Therapeutic Touch is a beneficial complimentary therapy to traditional western medicine. Therapeutic Touch is accepted in an increasing number of health care institutions worldwide and is used in a number of Canadian hospitals, residential care homes, hospices, and clinics. Therapeutic Touch is a scientifically based practice that was developed in the early 1970’s through the founding work of Dolores Krieger, PhD, RN, a professor at New York University, and Dora Kunz, a writer and naturally gifted intuitive healer.

What Is Reiki?

Reiki channels the universal life energy “Ki” to harmonize the union of mind, body, and spirit; encouraging the body’s natural healing process. A Japanese Buddist Monk named Mikao Usui founded Reiki in 1922. He was a life-long practitioner of Buddhism who developed Reiki as a holistic spiritual practice that also included healing. Mikao trained a group of Reiki Masters in Japan before he passed away in 1926. These Reiki Masters continued to teach the wisdom of Reiki after Mikao’s death. The practice of Reiki spread from Japan to the United States and then to the rest of the world. Reiki practitioners must receive a Reiki attunement to align their energies before they can practice on others. The process involves the Reiki Master or Teacher passing Reiki through the student to initiate them into connecting with the universal Ki energy. During a Reiki session there are standard hand placements beginning at your head or feet, which incorporate the chakras (energy centres within the body). The Practitioner incorporates a combination of hand placements that are both close to the body without direct contact as well as with light touch (avoiding all sensitive parts of the body). However, Reiki can also be done with no contact if that is your preference. Reiki energy can be sent In-Person as well as over Distance; to people, animals, plants, life events and geographic locations. Reiki is a complimentary therapy to traditional western medicine and you do not need to be spiritual to receive the benefits!

Ash also incorporates further knowledge of the meridians (energetic pathways within the body) and an application of hand placements to balance the five corresponding elements that correlate with the functions of the organs within the body for a more in-depth understanding of energetic anatomy. 

Most feel a sense of deep relaxation and inner peace. The mind calm and physical body relaxed. The experience can be so relaxing you may even fall asleep during the session. You will still receive all of the benefits both sleeping and “awake.” Some may experience the sensation of gently floating on a cloud, some may be very visual and perceive different colours or images in their minds eye, some may feel like a guardian angel is with us assisting with the session, some may have different memories or emotions come up to be acknowledged, processed and released, some may experience light tingling sensations or sense changes in temperature. This is all normal and completely safe to experience; we are accessing a level of your subconscious mind where cellular healing takes place from within. A deeper connection to your nervous system and the the subtle processes of your physical body such as your heartbeat and breathing are achieved. Feeling a sense of oneness within self and the world around you is a common theme.

It’s interesting to note that the experiences of the recipient are similar for in-person and online/distance Reiki.

For those moving through a major life change or looking to work on a more personal 1:1 basis, I recommend booking 1 session per week for 3–4 consecutive weeks. After these initial sessions, you may choose to transition to booking either 1 session per 2 weeks, 1 session per month, or whenever you feel intuitively guided to, for continued energetic maintenance and self-care. 

Session Packages are available at Sacred Passage Healing’s private studio in Ladysmith / Cedar, Nanaimo. Session Packages are also available for Online Distance Reiki Sessions.

What Is Tarot?

Tarot readings are beneficial for assisting with decision making and supporting you to feel more confident in life. The reader uses their intuition to interpret symbolic messages within the cards and provides spiritual guidance to help you in the area of question. Rather than predicting a future that is set in stone, Tarot helps to uncover a possible future or outcome based on the current energy you are holding. The power is always in your hands and any possible future / outcome will be determined by your actions in the present. Tarot can help to uncover your strengths as well as areas in your life that may be calling for extra attention + love. Tarot is a helpful guide to understanding how different events in life have led to the energy you are currently holding, where your energy is currently directing you to, and what adjustments you can make to maintain the path you are on or, readjust to come back into alignment with yourself. Tarot typically follows the original story line of the Rider-Waite Tarot deck with 78 cards that provide insight into specific life situations as well as personal habits and traits. Although tarot is very much intuitive, the cards follow a structured story line with common themes and symbolism + numbered cards and suits.

What is Mediumship?

Mediumship is the ability to communicate with the spirit of an individual / loved one who has passed away (human and non human, such as a pet). Sacred Passage Healing explores the world of mediumship within her work to bring healing to those experiencing grief and bereavement. Through her own lived experience, Ash holds the belief that everyone possesses the ability to connect with the energy of spirit through their own intuitive abilities, which will differ from individual to individual. Through her energy healing sessions and group Reiki Sound Bath Events, Ash creates the spiritual ecosystem / environment for those seeking to connect with a departed loved one, to achieve that desired experience through exercising their own intuitive abilities. Her services provide the space for you to practice working with this energy and understanding how you uniquely interpret the language of energy and spirit. Although Ash may pick up intuitive messages, evidence and validation from a departed loved one during an energy healing session, she does not provide Mediumship specific sessions at this time. Her goal within exploring mediumship is to uphold integrity and support the individual through their own exploration of continuing a connection with a loved one who has passed away, or those looking to develop the ability to bring through messages, insights, guidance, support and healing from the other side. This connection is formed by quieting our minds and opening our hearts up to listen to the subtle and unseen world of energy that is all around.
