Strength in Numbers

This week, I have had several amazing experiences collaborating with two of my very close friends and gifted healers, Cher and Tom. It started when I received a request for healing that seemed to be complicated and I asked them for advice while we were chatting. We ended up working on this person together, combining our strengths and affecting a very powerful healing and clearing. We felt really great about it afterward, and the recipient did too.

Interestingly enough, three more people emailed me during the week, and for various reasons, these also were cases that could benefit from a team of healers rather than one alone. We did end up collaborating in real time to give healing to these people. Our strengths are different, and combined we can validate each other's intuitive senses and support each other in many ways. Cher is able to channel the person's guidance clearly, Tom is able to see blockages and entities, and I feel them via sensations in my hands. Working together, we find and remove blockages, etheric cords, and entities, seal the aura, and fill the recipient's energy with light and healing energy. Cher receives guidance which helps us, and we pass the message to the recipient for his or her better understanding. Since we are at various distances in physical space, we collaborate in real time using chat and talk features on the computer. The results have all been very positive.

I have been inspired and feel so grateful for discovering this dimension to the possibilities for affecting a powerful energy healing. Collaborating is an amazing experience.

If you have an issue that could benefit from an intensive clearing, healing, and guidance, please email me. Tom, Cher and I are here to help.

In other news...
I'm working on my ReikiAwakening website and expect to launch by next week. Stay tuned!

Peace and light.

Focusing and Centering

This week, a small thing made a big difference in the way I see myself. I was filling out an application for my oldest daughter (age 9) to go to sleep-away camp for one week this summer. One part of the application asked for my occupation. Nothing special, very routine. Except this time, right away I wrote "Reiki Master/ Teacher" in the box. Before, I might have written "Freelance Writer" or "Teacher." This is the first time I've put Reiki central - saying "This is what I do; who I am."

I felt fantastic!

This small act of writing in the application has had a very strong impact on me. It really made me think! "Okay, Alice, if this is who you are, what should you be doing to live this way?" I mean, since I am claiming this as my career and path, how does that change the way I focus my time and energy? I've been thinking of this all week, and also feeling an amazing sense of excitement and anticipation about what's to come. I am motivated.

I did finally get ownership of and and I am starting today on building this website into a source of information, attunements and healings. Then my blog can be the journal of my experiences that it has always been, and the website can be how people can connect with me, the healer, teacher, and mentor that I AM! This, too feels amazing in its potential and in the way things are falling into place. Yes, it's work, but it's the work that feels immensely exciting and right.

Also this week, I have been surprised to receive guidance from outside sources. For example, a friend who I attuned to Colors of Angels and Guardian Angel Reiki sent me a message. She said that her guardian angels had told her to tell me to get and read this book: Divine Guidance: How to Have a Dialogue with God and Your Guardian Angels by Doreen Virtue. The message was that this book will help me with my readings. I ordered it immediately (expedited shipping too!) because I've never been told specifically to do something by anyone's (even my own) guardian angel before. I am reading this now, and as I read, I feel lots of energy encircling me. It's quite powerful. I recommend this book highly and look forward to the ways it will open me further to connecting with higher sources.

I am pleased to say that I have eight wonderful people involved in my Energy Healing Mentoring Program. Each individual is involved in finding his or her own way to grow in awareness and connection. I am enjoying working with every one, and welcome new inquiries and students as well. If you are interested in finding out more, please click here.

Twitter has connected me with increasing numbers of interested and fascinating people, and I am happy to have continued sharing conversations and healing with many.

Please contact me if you would like to receive healing, guidance, or information about energy healing. I am grateful for each person I have the opportunity to connect with. Comments are always welcome too. :)

Why Energy Healing is the Best Job in the World

Anyone who reads my blog or follows my updates on Twitter or Facebook knows that I'm passionate about Reiki, energy healing, and all things having to do with this. "But why?" one might wonder, "What's the big deal about? Why this love affair with all things energy healing? Why is Alice so devoted to this?" I'll tell you, and I'll show you.

I think that everyone needs to feel like he or she is good at something. That other people can see value in what one is doing, and appreciate the contribution he or she makes. Some people need this validation or appreciation more than others. It may be a factor of upbringing, personal baggage, or something embedded in your personality from a past life, ancestral programming, or the like. For me, the feeling that I'm making a difference is important. I think that's why I became a teacher. I am happy when I can help kids learn, discover, have fun, and feel good about themselves. Of course this extends to teaching energy awareness also, when I'm helping people learn Reiki, or learn to tap into their higher awareness in new ways. It feels wonderful to help people grow.

I used to work in a job (for many years) in which I was regularly told that I'm not good enough, that I am always doing something wrong, and I felt very beaten down, even as I struggled to gain appreciation for all of the work I put in by working harder. The damage to my self image and drain on my energy took a year and lots of Reiki and healing to get over once I left that job. This too just indicates that I am a person who wants to feel valuable, and wants to make a positive difference to people.

Today I would like to share some of the feedback that people have graciously given me in response to our energy work together. Some are from simple Reiki healings, others are from working more closely together in the Distance Healing Tutorial program, from receiving Tachyon Healing Stones, and others are feedback from attunements. This is the perfect example of why Reiki has brought this sense of appreciation, wonder and gratitude to me. I'm helping people and their appreciation enhances my gratitude and awe of the power of energy healing. Please enjoy these comments as I do, feel free to add your own, and also contact me if I can help you.

Alice, stopped everything I was doing & sat outside in the filtered shade *Breath became more relaxed & deeper & stronger, Energy seemed to be moving through whatever has been restricting my breathing * Became more open to impressions * Delighted to see orange butterflies and then a yellow & orange insect landed on my hand, then flew off * Later a dragonfly. Heard much more subtlety in sounds all around * Many different birds, chimes, traffic in far distance * Backyard paradise. Felt gentle breeze * Felt stirring of stronger winds * Felt their strength within * Looking out now * Aware of all movement. Felt physical restrictions * First of all the tension * Then the relaxing, melting & softening. So blessed to receive Alice * Feel a tad drousy * Like I should give in & have a mid afternoon nap * Know that to be healing. That's magic isn't it? * The world really is magic when we are 'in the zone' to breathe it all in. -Alison

I very much enjoyed absorbing all the golden nuggets of information shared in your “Distance Healing Guidebook”. It is very informative and clearly written from the heart. I think it’s a great teaching companion for all Energy healers and new students to Reiki. Your encouragement and suggestions will hopefully allow Reiki practitioners to step beyond the traditional rules of sending long distance Reiki and give them permission to experiment with new ways to “be” the conduit for the energy. The list of Reiki organizations and resources included at the back of the book is the best I’ve ever seen. - Jill Armstrong, Lotus Moon Rising Yoga & Reiki

The stones are very powerful! I had the pretty bag with them in my purse, and one of them in my pocket for the duration of the class I taught last Tuesday night. I had plenty of energy and was still energized after I got home that night. In fact, I had a hard time getting to sleep that night at all! So the next day I was tired - however, keeping the stones near me helped me get through the day.
Then again, this morning, I was feeling tired when I woke up, so I held one of them for a while, and kept them close to me most of the day - they really helped me keep moving and productive and gave me a real boost. Thank you so much for them. I think you are undercharging for them! - Arlene Holtz

I wish I could convey in print how grateful I am to you--I don't think it's possible, but THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! My work with you has been one of about 3 life-changing moments--(the other 2 were both health-related also--but not related to Reiki!) - Peter Dean

Again I thank you for the energy you sent my way today, I swear all I have to do is think on it, and I can feel it again. - Michelle
Thank you Alice for all of your healing, positive energy, and words of encouragement! You truly are an inspiration to those of us seeking to grow in light and love through Reiki! I'm grateful to you for sharing your wonderful energy with me ;-)Love, Light and Warm Blessings to you! -Krista

Wow Alice! I can't express how much you have already influenced things that have been going on in my life with and through Reiki. One little tidbit I wanted to throw in... I see things like this as a piano recital. The Source, Higher Power, God, whatever you wish to call it, is the pianist. But in this case as the one being my teacher, mentor and attuner, you are the piano... his beautiful music is played and comes to my ears through you. So while I am one billion times appreciative, grateful and loving God for Reiki, I also greatly appreciate the quality of the piano... you.Thank you again and I look forward to a long, meaningful relationship with you. -David

I loved the Distance Healing Tutorial. First, I found the questionnaire useful as it allowed you to gear the exercises to where I was least comfortable and in most need of reassurance and guidance. Second, I found your feedback invaluable as it allowed me to become comfortable with the veracity of what I was sensing on my end. And sending and receiving the KR healings during the crazy post-hurricanes pre-vacation time was also interesting and useful.
While I haven't started offering distance healing from my websites I do plan to and am more comfortable with my abilities since the tutorial.
Thanks Alice! - Lynda Lippin

See? The best job in the world. I'm grateful every single moment. My cup is overflowing.

A Year as a Reiki Master Teacher

Today marks one year since I took the Usui Reiki Master/ Teacher level course (read my post from a year ago here) and attunement at Ursuline College. This has been a very eventful and enlightening year of self discovery, sharing, healing, and leaps of faith. I've met amazing people, shared healings, attunements, guidance, learning and celebrated the many ways that Reiki can improve one's life. It's been amazing. I'm truly grateful.

This past week, my husband asked me to do a channeled reading for him. This was a big step and it signifies the way he has grown along with me, moving from skeptical observer to staunch supporter. I was nervous, but had a strong and profound experience as I contacted guidance and typed what I received. I was given much more than I had asked, and we were both moved by the results. This experience brought to light the ways in which we've become a "Reiki family," making Reiki a regular part of our home life and interactions with each other, and strengthening our family on all levels. With the two of us and the four children attuned to Reiki, there are new ways for us to grow together and help others. The appreciation I feel is overwhelming.

My blog is my journal of all that has happened in my energetic awareness so far, and the ways in which I have attempted to share my experiences with others. Sharing has been part of my growth, and I thank all who have taken an interest and offered me encouragement.

I intend the next year to be one in which I reach more people, teach energy healing that fits each person, connect with energy, guidance and angels on higher levels, learn more, and grow in as yet unimagined ways. Bringing energy healing to others is clearly my path and I am truly blessed to be accepting and owning it with love and gratitude for each moment.

I invite all who are curious about distance healing to contact me. If you are looking to find your path, I would love to help you. Thank you for the opportunity to meet and connect with you.

Please explore my blog. Share experiences, comment, and read about the teaching, channeled readings, healing, attunements, and energy-charged healing stones I am blessed to offer.

Peace and light.
