Client Testimony

I have been overweight and have battled depression and low self esteem throughout the majority of my life.  Working with Julie, I have learned how to love myself for the first time!  Reiki has taught me how to nourish myself in healthy ways.  I used to struggle with fad diets and intense food cravings.  It seemed that no matter what I tried, I couldn't lose any weight.  Now I understand that the reason why my body was holding onto excess weight was emotional.  Since I started healing with Reiki, the weight is suddenly coming off!  Most importantly, I beileve in myself now.  Thank you Julie, for helping me learn how to become the woman of my dreams! ~ Naomi, Los Angeles

This morning, Spirit gave me the following message, "Ascension begins with grounding." This is so true. In order to go up, we must first go down by grounding and releasing lower vibrational energies into the earth. More specifically, in order to ascend to higher vibrations and attract positive spiritual allies and energies into our lives, we must first create space within the body temple through physical grounding and release of negative & stale energy. As the old energy leaves us it makes room for new energy to replenish and renew us in body, mind and spirit.

Note that over-grounding can make us feel tired and lethargic and can actually prevent one from having an out of body experience or sensing subtle energies of the spiritual realm, but for balance and stability to promote a positive and solid foundation to which we may ascend to higher spiritual levels in our lives, proper grounding is key and provides the BALANCE  and release we need physically to do this powerful work. However, note that I would avoid grounding with food as that easily leads to over-grounding & lethargy (aka 'food coma')...  For me, some yoga, light exercise or a short hike works best prior to doing deeper shamanic/psychic/energy work. 

Even as one learns about the functions of our body's chakra system, we learn the first chakra or root chakra's primary function is grounding and releasing negative energy from our body temple through the elimination system and even by simply walking.  With each chakra we move up energetically in vibration towards the realm of spirit, but it all begins with the physical, our connection to the earth and grounding.  Many healing practitioners and psychics are often ungrounded and need more physical grounding in their life to 'keep both feet on the ground'.  If they don't, they become forgetful, spacey, irritable and energetically unbalanced.  I have known some to forget to pay their bills and they have lost thier homes.  Also note that when the stale or negative energy is not released from the body, imbalances and blocks occur that can lead to other issues.  So for balance when doing spiritual, healing or psychic work...regular grounding is essential.

Note that everyone's energy is different.  Some people are naturally more grounded than others so I encourage you to try a variety of techniques to discover the one that is best for you.  For more information about grounding and to learn different grounding techniques, you may read my Examiner article The Importance of Being Grounded by clicking here.
