The Answers are Within
I am an intuitive healer. I help people move through life with grace and love. The energies and frequencies that are channeled through me can relieve emotional, psychical, physical, and psychological pain.
Intuitive ability is what allows me to “read” the messages I receive from the client’s energy field. Sometimes the client’s energy will speak to me in stories. Sometimes the client will not allow me to “read” the stories. This is an example of how our free will works. For me, it is fine either way because Source will always work to help both the client and myself for our greatest good. The client has to be happy and comfortable. The session is benefical and works no matter what scenario presents itself.
Learning Truth About Healing
I’ve learned a lot for my clients and I also learned a lot from them as well. I've learned that the answers are always within.
The other great truth is an unmeasurable gift for any Energy worker, and that is the awareness that I am merely a channel for Divine Source… God to some of us. God does the work. And with that said, I am also aware of the fact that true healing is completely up to you, the client. This is more Free will in action.
Healing Cannot Be Forced Upon you.
Healing cannot be forced upon you. If it is forced in any way the healing will not be permanent. My job is to hold up the spiritual mirror allowing you to gaze upon your Self internally and externally. It is your job to see your internal and external beauty. Again, my job is to get you to see Love within your soul.
Holding up this mirror for you is an honor! And I take this honor very seriously. I do not allow any one to trivialize anything in the realm of holistic or spiritual healing. The results are too profound and positive.
And when a client has a tremendous revelation, one that moves them closer to having what they need and want, I am filled with absolute joy and amazement at God’s loving grace.
May I hold up the mirror for you? That lovely view of your infinite self is waiting to bring you peaceful insight, love, and happiness.

The Gratitude Journal
Keeping a Gratitude Journal is one of the many exercises I recommend to my clients. I make this recommendation in order to help them develop perspective and balance. Have you ever tried it? Sounds like a cake walk right? Well, it’s kind of easy in the beginning, and that’s if you can list some of the very basic things in life for which one should be grateful. You know like waking up in the morning, the air you breathe, the food you eat, etc.
So Why do Some Folks find it Challenging?
We human beings are so often mired in negative thoughts. Thoughts of the challenges in our lives. We obsess over our bills, difficult relationships, our jobs, and our health. There is a lot of not-so-positive stuff going on to keep from thinking of the great things in life. And duh? Isn't it better to try to figure out ways to fix the problems and meet the challenges? After all this is Earth School. We're here to remember who we are and where we came from in order to evolve to the next level. This is valid, but we spend too much time on the negative. We need to spend time thinking about things that will produce smiles and make our hearts soar.
Most of us seek the gifts enlightenment promises to bring us. These gifts are a joyous, happy, healthy, connection to all that is around us. A Divine Love. A connection to the Universe and a discovery that We are indeed the Universe. Keeping a Gratitude Journal is just one helpful step to embracing your true Self.
The Gratitude Journal will exercise the frontal cortex of your brain. This exercise will create neural pathways whose default emotion is Love and Joy. When we start thinking in a more positive way we are better able to access solutions to challenges. Life gets a little easier. We can actually become happier! Of course, keeping a Gratitude Journal will not alone completely change your life. At least I don’t think it will. However, journaling about the great things you experience can offer an escape from your daily troubles, and make you aware of the beautiful things that you do have in your life.
Here are Seven Tips for Gratitude Journal Writing:
1. Find the loviest book you can.
2. Get a special pen for writing.
3. Designate a sacred place for your writing where you will not be disturbed
4. Begin with 10 minutes and see if you can write for 20 minutes or more!
5. Try not to repeat entries. Force yourself to look at your world internally and externally for new entries.
6. Visualize things that make you happy i.e.: a baby’s smile, a joke, a pair of shoes. That should get the ball rolling if you are feeling stuck.
7. Write when you’re happy and especially if you feel sad. Writing is cathartic, and when you are writing about happiness you’ll see you will smile.
Gratitude Journaling is merely one way to attract more of the same to you. It opens your heart to attract more goodness your way. Give it a try. The least it could do is help!

Being on the front lines as an advocate of yoga, spiritual healing, Reiki, and other now dubbed “alternative healing” practices has, over the years, left me open to harsh criticism by my seemingly more pragmatic and sensible friends and family.
One reason for this is because people have a hard time with things they don’t see, and have no faith in what they feel…unless it is anger or hostility (that's for a later post). Another reason, I believe, has a lot to do with how some of my fellow Lightworkers represent themselves and the healing modalities they practice.
Some of my spiritual peeps make me cringe, but then again, I realize that this feeling is born out of fear of the loss of “respectability” for my avocation. I get it. I’m a work in progress. After all, they are just being themselves with rainbows colored clothing, drums, crystals, chanting, dancing on the subway…geez I could go on!
Though deep in my heart I am a flower child and my life mantra is “Love and Peace” I’ve learned to be careful in how I bring forth information about the healing arts. I manage to wrap the loving and guiding messages and information from the other dimensions in a manner that is not so…shall we say… “freaky-deaky” to my clients and fellow human beings. I am attempting to bring respectability to the healing arts without removing the Love and Peace.
Let's Talk More About Reiki and Healing
I’ve stopped hiding my knowledge and interest in the realm of spirituality. It is time now. Courage has been gained. Science is catching up to us lightworkers. More and more people are “getting it”, taking yoga classes, meditating, chanting, changing many life long, and sometime injurious, habits for a cleaner way of living. Having open discussions about Reiki, Acupuncture, The Reconnection, etc is better for the world at large. People are seeing the benefits of embracing these practices and they want to share their experiences.
I'm a voracious reader and lover of learning. This practice has taught me so much about Reiki and other healing modalities. I've gain insight from reading that helps me speak to my clients in a way they understand. When I learn something I apply it if it is appropriate. My clients get a fresh new me who is learning and expanding in skill and intellect. Now, I talk about Reiki and healing all the time.
Who are Your Healing Practice Advocates?
If you are a Reiki Master or a practitioner of any healing art and you are not sharing your gift with as many people as you would like assess your presentation. Could you benefit from reining it in a little? How you present yourself speaks volumes about how you feel about your profession. I take my healing practice very seriously. I don’t see why I cannot blend a professional connection with a medical doctor's office with Reiki or The Reconnection. If fact this is exactly what I’ve done, and I will pat myself on the back for representing Reiki, The Reconnection, and other healing methods in a professional way. The doctors I work with are among my greatest supporters.
What you see is only the tip of the iceberg of what you get!
With me you get information that is indeed love-drenched and warm positivity delivered in a professional manner that will not assail your current reality while your attitudes get a gentle adjustment. I will encourage you in the decalcification of your pineal gland, shine a light for you on the many paths to enlightenment and ascension, and introduce you to your truly Divine Self. All this delivered in a way that only a fun-loving native Brooklyn, New Yorker could.
I may leave my Om signs home and forego the flowers in my hair, but I’ll wear my Japa Malas, carry the Lapis Lazuli and burn the Nag Champa. After all, I’m a spiritual healer and a girl’s gotta represent!

Reiki pronounced Ray-Ki is composed of two Japanese words, Rei meaning Higher Power and Ki meaning Life Force Energy. Reiki uses the Universal Life Force Energies to produce positive healing results.
According to John Hopkins Medical center: “Reiki is a very specific form of energy healing, in which hands are placed just off the body or lightly touching the body, as in “laying on of hands.” Reiki can also be done “long-distance”.
In the last 20 years Reiki has grown in popularity. People all over the world are beginning to understand the many ways this powerful non-invasive healing modality can enhance their lives. Whether it is Dr. Mehmet Oz or Dr. Andrew Weil or the lady next door who uses Reiki on her pets, Reiki is firmly establishing itself in the modern culture as a viable healing practice.
Origins of Reiki
It is said that all the healing energies and frequencies have been on or around our planet from the beginning of time, but we first became aware of Reiki through the Dr. Mikao Usui during the 1920s.
Mikao Usui received the vision of the Reiki symbols and their energy during his Buddhist training that consisted of 21 days of fasting and meditation on Mount Kurama-yam in Japan. It was during the earthquake of 1923 in Japan that Dr. Usui saw a tremendous need for Reiki healing in the people suffering around him. As he began to treat and heal people with the Reiki energies awareness and popularity of his healing method grew. Knowing that he alone could not treat the many suffering he began to share his knowledge by teaching a small group of people including Dr. Chujiro Hayashi.
Dr. Hayashi met Mrs. Hawayo Takata who had been suffering from several life threatening illnesses. Mrs. Takata was so amazed by the successful healing results of her Reiki sessions that she petitioned Dr. Hayashi to teach her Reiki. Legend has it that during one her Reiki sessions Mrs. Takata became suspicious of the doctors treating her. Believing they were secretly holding an apparatus that produced this healing warmth she grabbed the doctor’s hand only to find nothing but the doctors hand warmed by the un-seeable Reiki energies.
In 1937 Mrs. Takata brought Reiki to the shores of the US through Hawaii. In 1938, she became the first female Reiki Master and 13th initiate of Dr. Hayashi. Mrs. Takata taught Reiki until her death in the 1980.
Reiki and Spirituality
Reiki is not a religion nor does it promote any kind of religious dogma. The benefits of Reiki can be experienced by anyone regardless of whether or not they devoutly practice any religion. The Reiki is considered a spiritual modality one reason is because it can have a profound effect on one's spirit and emotional body.
Reiki energy is experienced as a warm radiant glow throughout the client’s body. It produces a very calming effect and one often feels as though they are being held in a soft loving embrace.
The healing results are individual. Each session is different as Reiki will addresses the spoken and unspoken needs of that particular client
As the Hippocratic Oath is practiced by Physicians, The Five Principles of Reiki are remembered and practiced by Reiki Practitioners all over the world.
THE FIVE REIKI PRINCIPLE
Just for today, I will not be angry.
Just for today, I will not worry.
Just for today, I will be grateful.
Just for today, I will do my work honestly.
Just for today, I will be kind to every living thing.
What to expect during a Reiki Session
Reiki is done on a massage table. The client is fully clothed and lies on her back. In Reiki there are specific hands positions used by every Reiki Practitioner. Reiki is first applied to the front of the body. You may feel the Reiki Practitioner’s hands as being very warm.
When I’m working with clients I often receive messages or see pictures and I relay those to the client. I find these images/symbols are very helpful in the healing of emotional concerns that are often at the root cause of psychical ailment.
At the end of the session you may feel dizzy or your mouth may feel very dry bring bottled water with you or ask for a glass of water.
At this time I share my impressions with my client and recommendations to enhance the healing process.
After your session
Many of the effects you will experience right away. You will see more change in three days and even more as the energies integrate into your subtle energy body.
The healings can be profound while the energies are beautifully subtle. Schedule an appointment today!
Back in 2009 I started my first blog called Your Spiritual Path. Later that year I created another blog called Path to the Spirit. I still post to the Facebook page, so please feel free to "like" it and check it out. I thought this post would give you insight as to who I am and how I came to be a healer. I titled it My Spiritual Raison D'etre. Enjoy!
I am an intuitive and healer. It is an ability I have not always embraced with my full attention. I kept it secret most of my life because I was afraid of ridicule from those who thought it wasn't a rational pursuit or a legitimate way to make a living.
I was raised by my mother, is a devout Jehovah's Witness, who pretty much thinks that anything in this realm is demonic. However, oddly enough, it was my mother who introduced me to astrology, a science that fascinated me at the age of 10! My beloved grandmother was the one who recognized my gifts, celebrated them, and even trained me to the best of her ability. This makes me smile because little did my mother know I was often called into my grandmother's dimly lit bedroom to tell her and my great aunt what I saw in the candle's light. I love those memories. Though, honestly, at the time I was pretty bored with the process...I was only six years old! By the way, I saw my first spirit when I was about three years old...more on that in another post.
I stopped doing "wierd" stuff as a teenager to experience life. In my 20's I was being "called" again, and this time I voraciously read anything having to do with spirituality...even if I didn't understand it. In my 30's I accidentally came upon my ability to "read" people. I would offer to massage a friend's back and then I would tell them what I saw. I didn't think I was doing anything really significant. I was just having fun until one day a friend told me she was moving to Arizona with her husband, and that in our "session" I had accurately described everything she was going through. The image of a white bird, almost like a dove, flying over the Grand Canyon appeared to me. The bird had unusually long wings. My friend said "Emily you are more powerful than you realize." Mind you, I thought I was crazy for "seeing" the Grand Canyon. I thought it simply meant she was moving far away. I put an incorrect practical spin on it and asked her if she was going to Japan where her husband had once worked.
The long white wings meant, in my spiritual vocabulary, the trip was a good one, and even though she'd be leaving her very close-knit family it was ultimately for the best. The Grand Canyon was a symbol born out of my own experience. My husband and I love the Grand Canyon, and have visited it many times.
My friend's words stayed with me and I wondered if I could repeat this psychic experience. I did over, and over, and over again. Wow! This was cool. It made me happy, and my confidence grew. So, I continued to read, research, and experiment.
I wanted to understand what I was doing, but I had no reliable, credible source to contact. At this time I was having some serious problems in my life and decided to contact a reputable psychic. I made an appointment with Char Margolis, the celebrated psychic medium. You know, John Edward's good buddy! Yep, I go straight to the top!
Char told me that I am healer. I remember her emphatically stating this to me twice during my consultation. I wasn't ready to hear her. I was like "yeah, yeah, yeah...but this other thing...." When I think back on it I can only say: "What an ass I was!" lol I went on with my life armed with some vital Char information that helped me navigate through the insanity of my life at the time, but I was no closer to understanding my psychic gifts.
One day I came across a television program where a Reiki Master was being interviewed. He talked about healing with his hands, and it all seemed quite familiar to me. So, I sought out a Reiki teacher. She was great and I learned a lot. However, when I told her I also saw images when I touched people she informed me that I had to decide whether I wanted to be psychic or a healer. Surely, she was doing the same thing I did when she told the guy on the table during a demonstration that he had pizza for lunch! Whatever! Psychic competition?...Maybe?
My favorite memory is of a Reiki exchange with my friend Kelly Wilkes. I told her I saw a huge bright light, and a little dog waiting expectantly for her. I asked "Kelly are you planning to go home?" Kelly is from Baltimore. She said "no" but the following week Kelly did tell me that she was going home to Baltimore to be near her family. She also told me that she was going to study massage therapy. 10 years later, Kelly and her husband Rex are the owners of the Ojas Wellness Centers in Maryland. I am proudest of this reading because it was one of the many things that helped my friend pursue her life's purpose with confidence.
My experiences in life have lead me to believe that there are so many more people in the world who are intuitive lightworkers longing for a compassionate listener, and a person who “gets them”. We all need someone to encourage us on our spiritual path. I believe we all mentor each other on a deep level. I would love to hear your stories or the lessons you’ve learned on your spiritual journey. I am in service to you and I hope my stories and insights will help you live your life to the fullest.
