Mind-Blowing Attunements

I’ve been a professional Reiki practitioner and teacher for about five years. I’ve attuned over 900 people to Reiki. I have run a school for three years. 

And still, I feel like there’s so much more to learn about working with energy, its effects on people, and how to understand the complexities of energy, guides, karma, past lives, ancestors, angels, and life path. 

Every time I work with energy or intuition, I learn something new. Every class I teach teaches me more. I’m constantly reading, seeking out classes to help me grow and deepen my knowledge.

And I feel out of my league sometimes. 

I don’t have all the answers, and sometimes I don’t know where to get them. 

Here’s an example. I taught a Practical Reiki 1 class recently. Everything seemed normal. I spent the morning teaching how to recognize your intuition, and experience the energy. I gave a little Reiki to each student. Every student could feel the energy and identify how it felt to her. (Every student was female in this particular class). 

In the afternoon, I taught Level 1 and gave the students their attunements. During the attunement, everyone sat calmly, eyes closed, experiencing their attunement. Except, suddenly, one of the students fell to the floor and seemed to be having what looked like a seizure. She flopped around on the floor, out of control of her body. (I’ve never seen someone have a seizure, so I am going by what I have seen/ read about them). Shocked, we all jumped up and I asked if I should call 911. I was told to wait, because one of the other students knew her well and rushed over to help her. She held the student tightly (I held my phone tightly, finger ready to push those numbers for the paramedics!) and then the student having the episode started crying and recovered. 

She explained that she had started having an out of body experience during the attunement, which scared her and caused a kind of struggle to happen. She had never had an experience like this before. She is, however, very psychic and just discovering these gifts. 

The whole thing left me feeling shaken and uncertain. I suggested she follow up with a doctor, just to be sure. I’ve been processing, trying to align my experience with anything I’ve ever learned. I haven’t been able to do this conclusively. I’ve heard from her since, and she’s feeling fine, better, lighter. She reported that she feels like a big bunch of “stuff” was released. 

I’ve never seen anything quite as dramatic happen in one of my classes. Tears, yes. Laughter, yes. Students reporting amazing visions or physical cleansing symptoms (one student had dry heaves on the way home after her first attunement), yes, lots of times. 

I am left with the humbling reminder that this is powerful stuff I’m working with. Energetic transfer, or attunements, is serious business, and needs to be respected. I’m not in control of how a person will react to receiving an attunement. Once I intend the attunement to begin, and the recipient intends to receive, it’s out of my hands, so to speak. 

But there’s certainly no doubt that it works. 
And for that, as well as the opportunities to learn more every day, I am profoundly grateful.

Misconceptions

On the phone today, during a coaching call with one of my students, I heard that there is someone on the big conference circuit who is teaching a workshop in “everyday shamanism.” Sounds nice. She’s up there with Doreen Virtue, Gregg Braden, and other bigwigs. Except that my student reported that this person is telling Reiki practitioners that Reiki energy is “lower level” and the symbols are “blocking higher forms of energy from getting through.” Then she brings Reiki practitioners up to the stage so she can “remove their symbols” through a “deattunement” process and thus free them from their energetic limitations.


Oh dear, I think I feel my blood boiling. Must be the reason smoke is coming out of my ears.


Grounding…yes…a good thing for moments like these.


And now to set the record straight.


Reiki is not a “lower level” of healing. Reiki is a specific frequency of healing. And Practical Reiki, furthermore, is an expanded frequency because it includes Earth (Kundalini) energy in the mix. All energy healing techniques work with specific frequencies of energy. Qi Gong, Quantum-Touch, Polarity, and more, all have methods, techniques, and subtle energetic frequencies that activate to create energetic change. Think of an orchestra, and each method is a specific instrument in a family of instruments. One who learns to play a range of instruments has more tools for his use, in combination or singly. It’s not that one is “better” than another, but the more one uses, the more energetic ranges are affected for healing and balance.


Symbols are a way of setting the intention for the energy to work. I teach a method of Reiki that does not use symbols. I do not “remove” symbols for people who use them (as if that were possible!!), but instead I teach that the use of symbols is optional. I teach people to access intention through words instead of symbols so they have a choice. I also give everyone an understanding of what symbols really are – shortcuts for directing intention. Speed-dial. When people learn Practical Reiki, they learn, experience, and then practice directing Reiki energy by thoughts and words only. There are no hand positions or symbols. This isn’t a higher level of healing, it’s a higher level of understanding about what’s really going on behind the scenes when one is practicing Reiki.


What this person is doing, actually, is the same as what I’m doing, but her way is misleading. She doesn’t have the power to remove symbols. There is no “symbol removal” necessary or even possible, even if symbols were used in one’s attunements (as many are). In essence, that’s not what she is doing. But by making people think that after she does her little ritual, they will magically be “free” of the “limitation” of using symbols, these people are now ready to believe that they are practicing a higher form of healing – without “needing” to use symbols. Ta-daa! I no longer need those symbols!! It’s mind manipulation.


By being a person at the forefront, accepted as a authority, and speaking alongside others who are at the top of this energy healing and metaphysical field, she is responsible for the accuracy of what she teaches. And I have to say that I totally resent her giving the impression that Reiki is sub-par or that a Reiki practitioner needs an energetic “deattunement” of any kind in order to move forward. That’s just wrong.


Increasing the strength of the intuition and the power of one’s energy healing ability is done through mindful practice and dedicated learning. It is good to become attuned to various systems, as long as one takes the time to fully learn and incorporate these new energetic frequencies into his or her own. I’m trained and familiar with several methods of energy healing and going to a workshop to learn another method in November.


But you will never hear me telling someone that one method is “lower level” than another. Because just as methods are different, people are too. Different methods will naturally resonate with different people. I’m very resonant with Reiki. My good friend and colleague Ernie Betz is very in tune with Quantum-Touch. We’ve each learned Reiki and Quantum-Touch both, and we both experience profound results in our practices. But we both understand that it’s about the practice and the person’s comfort level that makes the difference. As long as one is mindfully practicing, one’s intuition gets stronger, and the results continue to show themselves as valid and powerful.


Anyone who doesn’t understand this does not belong in the spotlight teaching others.


(Alice steps off the soapbox…for now.)

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.

Announcing…Energy Healing Mentoring Program

Many times in my life I seem to have moved in a direction and only realized it in retrospect. One example is that in my early 20s I started teaching drama to kids just for a fun job. Then I picked up a youth group advisor job, and taught Sunday School. I was having a great time, but it wasn’t my day job. My day job was not nearly as fun, and when it ended, my husband (boyfriend at the time) said to me, “Alice, you’re a teacher. Look at yourself! Go get your Teaching Certification and teach.” I realized that he was absolutely right. I’ve had other ah-ha moments along the way, and now another one is motivating my next offering here.

I’m formally beginning an Energy Healing Mentoring Program.
Here’s why:
For the past six or eight months people who have been interested in attunements or growing their personal intuitive abilities and awareness have come to me for advice. We’ve worked on a series of healings, attunements, and I’ve suggested various meditations and distance healing techniques, and we’ve worked together on their goals. I’ve enjoyed getting to know each person and help him or her grow. Ah-ha.

Everyone is somewhere in their intuitive development. Most people have goals and may not know how to move to the next step. Maybe that goal means being more aware of the presence of angels and guides. Maybe it involves increasing your capacity for self healing. Perhaps you are interested in distance healing but have been worried that it wouldn’t work, or don’t feel confident in your methods. Maybe you have some past issues you would like to release but don’t know the best way for you to do so. There could be these or many other reasons. Everyone has their own path and goals. I’m offering my help. Why? Because I’ve already been doing this for people and it’s been helpful. I’m also (if you have been reading my blog at all over the past year) on my own discovery journey and hope that by sharing my experiences it can help others in some way as well.

Here’s the program, structure and prices. All are heavily discounted because it’s a whole curriculum and I want to make it affordable in its entirety.

Energy Healing Mentoring Program with Alice

We start by talking about what you want to learn, how you want to grow in your intuitive abilities as a healer and spiritual person. Then we craft a plan that helps you progress every step of the way. These are some of what would be included, depending on what you want.

Menu of Services

Healings, when needed, $10. (some free)

Kundalini Reiki Attunement Series – $45 (instead of $60) – empower you to channel this modality for yourself, others, via distance, and attune others when complete. (Teach a person to fish idea you know? Then you can be set up to teach others after a while.)

Attunements of choice (non Kundalini Reiki) – $18 each (instead of $25) (Includes Colors of Angels, Guardian Angel Reiki, Etheric Cord Flush, Tachyon Energy, Tachyon Source, and some others that I have that we could discuss that I don’t offer publically yet.)

Mentoring guidance in regards to learning to meditate, contact guidance, connect with angels, learn distance healing, etc. whatever you feel drawn to learn….$15 per session (a session includes: 1) you asking about what you want to learn, 2) me giving you some detailed suggestions, resources, instruction, practice plan, and then 3) responding to your feedback/questions. Each “session” is a theme-based unit we’ll explore together based on what you feel drawn to learn). Includes a copy of the Distance Healing Guidebook ebook I created. (Alternative to paying for this mentoring guidance per session is a flat rate $50 per month for unlimited sessions. This is a good option if you want to have 6 or more sessions per month.) Note: The guidance is part of the Energy Healing Mentoring Program and at least two individual sessions are necessary for the discounted attunements. Healings and attunements are priced as listed.

My friendship and caring about your experiences and development – hey you already have that, you know! Regardless, that’s there for you. (Priceless – lol).

Pay as we go. You set the pace. I’ll be here to discuss your progress, experiences, questions, timing, whatever is helpful. I am also open to partial trades or other financial arrangements. My main goal is to help you get where you want to be. Your potential is unlimited and I’d like to help you realize that and achieve it.

How to sign up? Email me. Tell me about your goals. Let’s begin! I’m excited to work with you.

Peace.

Doors

This week, a door unexpectedly closed on one of my writing jobs. The experience (rather unpleasant unfortunately) left me wondering what it all meant. I’ve decided to take it as a sign that I need to be concentrating more on building my energy work practice – getting the word out more, helping more people, teaching and promoting energy healing, and focusing my intention on these goals.

My Herkimer Diamond healing crystal came, and I got the same swirly buzz from this one as I had from the one at Sarah Weiss’ house. So I sat down and meditated for 30 minutes, focusing exclusively on envisioning my ideal day, and was surrounded by a joyful feeling inspired by the image. I felt happiness and gratitude, and there was no worry or stress. It was nice. I will do this more.

I’m grateful, too, for several recent requests for channeled readings and healing that have led to lovely exchanges – crystals, artwork, and one person who is knitting me a gorgeous shawl! I cherish all opportunities to help people, and the obvious value that they place on my teaching is validating and fulfilling.

I have received the Lightarian AngelLinks attunements, and am feeling a stronger connection with the Archangels in this set of attunements. The connection I have now is helping to validate my feelings about the direction I want to go with my endeavors. I would love to pass the attunements on to anyone who wishes to receive them. Because this energy is an official licensed system, if you want the attunements I will need to order the manual (which comes via snail mail!) for you from the Lightarian Institute. The price of the manual is $34, and there are 5 attunements. I will do each attunement for $13 each. That makes the entire package $99. This is less than what I paid for them, and much less than the going rate. I just want to be able to pass along attunements at a rate which is affordable. I’ll set up a link on the right, but until I do, please email me if you’re interested or have questions. Anyone who receives these attunements from me will be able to: pass the attunements to others as a licensed facilitator, and have his or her name listed on the Lightarian Institute’s website.

When one door closes, another opens. And I’m interested in making this door the one I proceed through.

Peace.

Going with it…Worry-free

Things went differently than I expected at my session with Sarah Weiss. It was a powerful healing session with lots of clearing. I held a very powerful healing crystal called a Herkimer Diamond (not really a diamond-diamond but that’s what it’s called). For the first time I actually felt healing from holding a crystal so this was a new development for me. I really felt swirling energy sweeping through each chakra from the top down while I held it. I’m getting one of those! I bid on one on Ebay today!

In any case, I learned that my first and second chakras were rather blocked. This is due to worrying about money, work and time. Basically – worry in general. I do tend to worry and have trouble staying in the moment, always thinking about what I need to do next. Sarah worked with me on getting into my “place of abundance” (think “Happy Place” 😀 ) and there being worry-free. In fact, I noticed that when I’m feeling surrounded by energy, as when I call in energy for healing work, there is no room for worry – the thoughts of worry just won’t come in. Nice. So I’ll be working on that, and working with more crystals as well.

But as far as the Light Journey Training goes, because I can’t make the sessions due to prior teaching committments through the school year, I can’t take this training. So we’re going to work on one-on-one monthly sessions for self healing and intuitive development. Probably similar stuff will be learned. At some point when the time fits right I will probably take a class with her. For now, I do have work to do and things will continue to develop. I’m also in a transition again, which I can feel – kind of muted energy sensations rather than strong when I channel Reiki.

I spent today all day giving Reiki to my son Eli, who has a bronchial cough and fever. He has been feeling pretty awful. Finally got the Tylenol to catch up to him so he’s just now feeling a little better. Plus,we’re grateful to friends on Twitter and Facebook who sent him additional healing energy throughout the day. Evan and Rayna also gave him Reiki. When a mom feels helpless that her child is sick and suffering, it’s nice that something else can be done to help. That’s why I love Reiki.

I had my first Lightarian AngelLinks attunement, and will be scheduling the next one tomorrow and continuing. There are 5 total. I look forward to offering them here, and will be doing so soon.

I’m grateful for the new requests for channeled readings and attunements that have come in the last week. Bringing new healing modalities to people is such a blessing. I love the idea that people I attune go and attune others, and they attune people, and everyone is channeling healing energy, increasing the amount of healing energy throughout the world. It’s a beautiful thought.

So I continue to develop new and stronger links to light, angels and guidance. May that happen for you too. Peace.

Emerging into the Light

Hello!

First, I’m feeling better from my Spiritual Upgrade I wrote about last week. Funny how I know it’s over – I do feel lighter and more clear-headed. Also, when I drive, the yellow line in the middle of the road has a big blue aura around it – lol! I notice that and realize I’m seeing something energetic and that’s another clue!

Meanwhile – I am meeting some amazing people on Twitter, and if you’re there, check out the list of people I’m following. I would dearly love to sit down with the lot of them and talk for about a month about Reiki and energy healing, positive thinking, and all of the energetic arts. There are many inspiring people there. Stop by and follow along!

And, I have a BIG IDEA that I’m starting to build into reality. I’m awfully excited about it. I bought a website domain – www.reachinglight.com – and I’ve started inviting some of the most amazing people I’ve met and had excellent experiences with to gather together with me on this project. It’s going to be a resource of information on many sorts of energy related things – Reiki, auras, angels, chakras, channeling, psychic connection, intuition, and more. The people I’ve invited are experts, and the real deal. What the page will be is a place for people to come and read some articles about the various topics, and link to the people who are experts on them. I envision classes, discounts for different combinations of services, a place for Q&A, a blog, and fantastic energy. I’ll keep you posted on the developments!

Meanwhile, thank you to those who have signed up so far for my holiday special and welcome to anyone else who wants to join in before Dec. 20!

I’ve been getting good experience and feedback with channeling and it’s always a learning and growing opportunity for all involved.

Blessings all around.
