I’m on vacation this week, with my family, in beautiful Sandbridge, VA. We come here every year for a week, to slow down, get some beach time, and be together without a schedule. The weather has been gorgeous (up until yesterday and today, which are co…
The Feedback is Back
In my previous post, I was interested in testing out the new psychic healing method I had learned. And, I received requests from many volunteers to help me try it out and receive feedback (for which I’m very grateful).
The sessions were good for me. They made me mediate – sometimes three times a day! I found myself recognizing when I was in “the zone” – because this really blissful sort of happy feeling would fill me, and I’d feel disconnected from my tendency to think about stuff – I was just present, without judgement or analysis.
They also helped me to try something totally different in practice and philosophy from Reiki. Differences included:
- I wasn’t trying to “do anything” – I was simply engaging in a sort of universal merging with the other person, asking for the person’s highest and best to happen.
- I wasn’t scanning, looking for intuitive information, or trying to “sense” anything about the other person’s state of balance.
- I couldn’t even try to send Reiki because in order to do that, I need to be separate from the other person. In this method, we are one and the same. So I can’t be the sender, the observer, or anything that’s not simply as one with the recipient and the Universal Energy (however you want to call it).
With the healing, I saw a huge bluish light on my right side. Oval. I felt energy in different places and saw people coming in and out during the latter process.
It was very relaxing and soothing, like a Reiki treatment. I felt a lot of warmth over my face, almost like a very gentle massage, around my sinuses and eyes, and a slight tingling at my temples. I did go into a deeper meditative state, where I don’t remember much, but I was alert at the 9:30 mark, like the session was over, feeling refreshed.
My finger tips and palms began to “buzz” as they do during a Reiki session, and later I felt a bit of the same on the soles of my feet. Shortly after the hand buzzing began, I did notice my breath had slowed and I felt more relaxed; calm. This lasted for about 10 more minutes before I felt the “buzzing” fade away.
My experience was very different from Reiki. I felt a strong energy connection immediately as I set my intent to receive a psychic healing from Alice. For me it was a strong hand tingling much like an attunement. Stronger than I feel in a self Reiki session. This connection was solid and strong within the first five minutes. Then I felt very clear in my 3rd eye, and was able to sit with memories I was seeking, much like meditation but without any effort to focus on breath or quiet mind. These memories I sat with for a full 10 minutes, and then I felt a body warmth, and I felt a nice healing and understanding which was very gentle and loving. Then I felt very relaxed and knew the energy was wane. This happened about 22 minutes into the session. I knew at 25 minutes the connection was closed, and I just felt good, clear, and relaxed.
Your psychic healing session last night brought me a sense of calm and peace. I felt like I was floating outside of time. Amazing and blissful. Just what I needed at this time!
Right away I noticed some pulsing almost twitching but I don’t think there was actually physical movement..but it felt like the pulsing in my feet and legs could be seen if someone looked. My feet and hands felt warm and tingling but not like the reiki sending tingle..it was like a tingle of electricity subtle but noticeable. I started to notice pulsing or the bubbling sensation in various parts of my body. Arms and legs were the most noticeable.
I remember thinking I had an alert awareness of my whole body..the tiredness was gone. It was peaceful but definitely a beautiful awareness of my body like an energy field.
The pulsing inner switching or bubbling kept occurring throughout the time in various areas but mostly my feet legs and arms.
I felt a sense of peace …relaxation but at the same time this rare sense of awareness. I felt a sense of great well being and still feel that along with a lightness in spirit.
Honestly this to me has been a profound stretch of time. Thank you so much for this experience. This was honestly unforgettable healing.. I have no awareness that there was a specific healing yet I know something important happened within me.!
I just feel wonderful, lighter, calm, and filled with inner peace right now.
I was getting dinner on the table and realized that I only had two minutes until the healing was going to begin. I lost track of time briefly and all of a sudden I said to my husband “I’ve got to go – I can feel the energy flowing already.” I was feeling warm and a sense of lightheadedness because the energy was flowing so strongly. I laid down upstairs in our room and immediately felt the loving and caring energy. It felt like I was being melded into the bed like clay, especially in my heart chakra. Then I felt the healing energy move into my head which is where most of my troubles of been lately. I have felt like such a cloud has been in my head these past few days and it’s as if I could feel it being physically moved up and swirling out if my head to be released. I was feeling immediate relief. Then I felt the energy shift and start moving downwards in my body. The next place I felt an immense amount of energy was in my sacral chakra. I also felt the release of bubbles in my stomach 🙂 then I felt the energy going into my legs down to my feet. Eventually I could feel it moving again into my sacral chakra and heart and finally into my head again (the pressure had completely dissipated). I could sense the healing was coming to an end.
This is the first distance healing I have ever received and it felt so powerful. I am reminded again and again that Spirit is real and that the power to heal is real! It was a beautiful experience.
I’m grateful for this feedback, because it really taught me a lot about energy work! I’ve also been thinking about how I can incorporate this method into making the distance healing sessions I offer even more powerful, and still offering the observational reports that I include with a distance Reiki session. You see, when I give a distance Reiki session, I spend time observing the energy flowing to the recipient, and in which chakras and body areas the energy flows differently (blockages, pain, or depletion, for example). I prepare a report of these observations for my recipient, and include it in the email I send after I do the healing session. I still want to offer this, because my recipients find the observations to be very useful, along with the energy of course.
I also am aware that giving a psychic healing with this method requires a different sort of work on my part. I need to be in a totally quiet place, and can’t be distracted or disturbed by any of my family members. I need to be completely immersed for this part of the session.
So, I am going to offer an option of having both the psychic healing session at the beginning, and the Reiki session with report next, as part of the same healing session. That way, the recipient can have the benefit of both methods. They can also still receive a more personalized report and accounting of my observations about their energy flow as it was being received. I feel good about this decision.
I’ve also decided to charge a little more, but not double, for the combination of psychic healing and Reiki.
It’s an option to make my services more valuable overall, but still give the person receiving a choice.
I look forward to the new experiences this will bring for those receiving healing sessions from me, and for my own growth as a lightworker.

Doing the Work
As my loyal readers know, meditation has been a struggle for me.
I’ve posted about it a lot, but especially here:
Meditation Has Annoyed Me
Pretty easy to get the picture, even from the titles, right?
In the post above, a year ago, I wrote about reading How to Mediate by Lawrence LeShan, followed by The Medium, the Mystic and the Physicist. These were some big, powerful reads for me, and both books inspired me to learn more. After waiting a year, last week, I traveled to Connecticut to attend the 5 day LeShan Healing Seminar, to learn this little-known method of psychic healing that Dr. LeShan trained himself to do and talks about in his book The Medium, the Mystic and the Physicist.
The lessons from the week were many, but most of all, I learned something about myself:
I’ve been copping out on meditation.
Yes, it’s true. I’ve given myself excuses by the dozen – This kind of meditation isn’t “my thing.” I’m not the kind of person who can – or needs to – quiet down in there. I’ll get it, or I won’t, and it doesn’t matter really…blahblahblah. Anything to avoid the work of actually struggling through the noise to find the silence and just BE here.
On the second day of the seminar, I even blurted out to the entire group of thirteen people, “I SUCK at this!!” And, I meant it. My meditations for the first two days were like trying to tame a wild horse. I’d be quietly breathing for a bit. Then I’d comment in my head how nice and quiet my thoughts are. Then I’d mentally tell myself to stop commenting. Then I’d comment that telling myself to stop was still commenting. Then, a little while later, the pizza guy showed up in my head with a couple pizzas, and I looked to see what kind they were, and started to thank him, and then WHAM! I realized that I was supposed to be meditating, and the pizza guy was a big distraction (though a pleasant one) by my thoughts, and I’d have to start again.
But, meditation is a BIG, IMPORTANT part of learning this healing method, and I was VERY motivated to learn it. So, it was time. I had to sit my butt in the chair, close my eyes, and MAKE myself make the effort to meditate. This was the sole activity for two days and I had to do it. No excuses, nothing else to be running off to do. Just this – the “calisthenics” that would build our intuitive muscles to be able to do the healing work, which we’d learn on the third day. I’m doing the work, so I can do the real work.
I guess it’s about time, right?
By the start of day three, I was calmer. I wasn’t beating myself up anymore. I was just bringing my mind back to the meditation at hand, observing and noticing which methods (visualization, contemplation, breath counting, etc.) were a little easier for me to stay focused doing. I was seeing myself as more of an observer than a critic. And that’s progress.
The healing method is very interesting and profound. I am looking forward to working more with it now that I’m home.
On the last morning, we did one more meditation together. It was contemplation of a three part quotation, as it pertains to ourselves. I had a very different experience here. As I sat, thinking about my life, my path, the way I relate to myself, others, and the world, I found I was smiling – hugely. I felt so much happiness fill me. Gratitude, maybe joy too. Just so completely happy about being where I am in this journey – knowing why I’m here, knowing that the work I do is meaningful, and feeling supremely grateful for the ability to connect with and help others.
This seminar was very beneficial to me, because learning to meditate (finally) is going to help my entire life – my healing work, my parenting, my focus…all of it. And, the healing method is one that I can work to further develop, now that I have the tools and the means to actually practice without being in my own way.
If you need some help with meditation, don’t ask me. Hahaha! Read LeShan’s book, How to Meditate. All of the explanations of how the brain works, and the different methods we learned can be found in there.
If you’d like to experience a healing with the method I learned, please send me an email. I will offer a free distance session to the first 12 people who ask, in exchange for feedback afterward, to let me know how your experience was. Just shoot me an email.
Thanks for reading. Your comments are so welcome, always.
There’s No Place Like Home
|The kids with my Grandma Goldye|
Last week, the family and I went to Cleveland to celebrate Passover with family. It was the first time I had been back since we moved to Maryland six months ago. In the weeks before the trip, I had had two nightmares about moving back to Cleveland – in the second one, Evan had told me we needed to move back for three months, and I had flatly refused, telling him to take the kids and let me stay here for the time he’d be there. That’s how much I love living here in Maryland.
When we were there in Cleveland last week, we went to see our Cleveland house. It’s sold, by the way, finally, and we are scheduled to close the sale at the end of this week. So it’s empty, and ready for a new person to have a life there. Even driving down the street was surreal for me. We lived in that house for fifteen years. We had all four kids while we lived there. My oldest is now in eighth grade. It was the only home my kids knew until six months ago. Walking in the door, walking around the house, I had two very distinct questions come into my mind, as if a deep confusion was going on under the surface.
The first question was, “Is this a weird dream? Will I wake up in my bed in Maryland if I shake myself out of it?” The second question to surface was, “Have the past six months been a weird dream, and am I back home now?” I answered both questions, as if speaking to a frightened child, with reassuring answers about why I was there, and that we would be going back to Maryland soon, where we live now. But the uneasy feeling continued.
Shortly afterward, we went back to my parents’ house, where I had lived between breaks in college, and for four years after graduation, before getting married. It also, was my “home” for those years. This was the first time that my husband and I had spent the night there together as a married couple, and we’ve been married for seventeen years. When we lived in Cleveland, we all ate dinner as a family every Friday night, usually at my parents’ house. Being back there, and especially sleeping there for a few nights, was another one of those confusing feelings for me, under the surface. I heard my inner voice, “Where is home? This was home. Am I home?” This poor, confused little me inside my head was really having a time of it. Again, I reassured this little voice with images of my new home in Maryland, and the date that we’d all be back there.
Several times during the trip, I caught myself talking to the kids and using the phrase “we’ll go back home” but referring to my parents’ house, because that’s where we were staying. But once I used it referring to the Cleveland house, and once I also used it to refer to our Maryland house. I felt odd each time.
On Wednesday, I left for a five day seminar in Connecticut to learn the LeShan Psychic Healing Method – something I had been waiting a year for, and was very excited about. So I flew out of Cleveland, and spent five days and nights in a retreat center. I had a room there, of course, and all that. The seminar was intense and deep. I have a lot to think about, a lot to practice, and new tools. (Side note – if you want to know more about what this method is, read The Medium, the Mystic and the Physicist by Lawrence LeShan.)
Yesterday, I flew from Connecticut to Baltimore, and then took a bus back to Gaithersburg, where I gratefully arrived back here, “Home” now. This is where I live. This is home.
But my roots feel a little unsteady. It left me thinking about how long it takes, and what events need to happen, for the place you live to settle in deep enough that one can say the word “home” and it comfortably relates to the place that person resides. Most of all, I wonder how long it will take for me to be able to say “home” and have that deep, comfortable knowing where I mean.
I want the word “home” to resonate as here in Gaithersburg. I LOVE our house here. (We’re renting for now, though I hope to buy this house eventually if we have the opportunity). I love the area, the opportunities, the new friends and associates, all of it. It feels so much better to me energetically than the years we struggled in Ohio. I want this place to be the one that resonates when I say the word “home.”
Selling our house – being done with the closing and all – should help. Also, we still need to get MD driver’s licenses and plates for our cars. That should help too, I think.
I have a place to practice and teach Reiki. I have been teaching here, making contacts, and have some events lined up to go to for business networking and stuff like that. We have new doctors, eye doctors, dentist, and library cards. We have a new bank, and checks with our new address.
Energetically, I really need to be here all the way. Home is where the heart is.
“Be here now.” This concept is a part of cultivating the full presence that helps in all energy work, and in mindfulness that is essential for being effective, confident, and balanced.
I’m working on that.
One of the things I love most about Reiki, and most intuitive skills, is that they can be learned easily. Some methods seem deliberately complicated, with structure and ritual injected to help a person feel secure (“Just tell me what to DO”). But I lik…
