Gratitude for Opportunity

I have had some  new inquiry into Tarot the past day or two. I  chalked t up to  the spring and new seasonal changes.  Then I logged into my Instagram and saw that  Kootenay Mountain Culture Magazine has re posted the article that Clare (Montana Journalist) had done on Witchcraft in BC.  Kari ( Nelson  Photographer) and I were tagged in the  pic and I have had a few calls and emails booking into  August.  Talk about full circle and  gratitude.  Nothing is out of reach.  Believe in yourself and your core and  nothing can stop you. 

Here is a link to the article I  was just in the  cedar grove with fellow practitioners and  foraging for the apothecary and the  sold out cedar incense that my clients men  and women alike enjoy when they are working with the root chakra or simply in need of cleansing energy.

The Chakras of Matter


The Chakras of Matter
The first three chakras, starting at the base of the spine are chakras of matter. They are more physical in nature. We will begin with the first Chakra of Matter-Root Chakra – Mūlādhāra

The Root Chakra is named Mūlādhāra in sanskrit. The Root Chakra is the first of our energy centers and forms the basis and the starting point for our development. The vital life force energy of Root Chakra begins at conception and continues with life force energy dividing the cells during embryonic developmen.


The spinal column begins to develop from the bottom (root chakra) moving to up (crown chakra), and then organs begin to develop.

The Root Chakra is associated with the first task we undertake after birth, and that is to determine “Do I belong here?” …on this Earth and in this family system. It is not a conceptual question based on (thinking) cognition.
This is instinctual.

Mūlādhāra is the most instinctual of all chakras – it is your survival center. The primal energy of survival is fight, flight, or freeze response and is initiated from Root chakra energy. This is your primal, animal nature of survival.


This is the chakra that controls our animal nature and governed by the predominant survival sense of smell, then taste.

Erik Erickson’s stages of development, the first stage—trust versus mistrust—is closely related to Root chakra development.

Root chakra is the chakra of stability, security, and our basic needs. The root chakra is comprised of whatever grounds you to stability in your life. This includes your basic needs such as food, water, shelter, safety, as well as your emotional needs of interconnection, and being fearless.

The Root Chakra is associated with the physical body that includes the adrenal glands, colon, kidneys, skeleton/bones, muscles, and arterial blood that flows through the left chamber of the heart, carrying oxygen and nutrients to our body tissue.
The Root Chakra provides the links between our energetic system and the physical world and is our base for our life force energy.
Imbalance in life force energy in the Root Chakra can leave us feeling restless or experiencing a lack of energy, which may be expressed as anxiety, worry, panic, depression, frustration, resentment, anger/rage, or having no interest in the world or in our own survival.

The journey to heal trauma wounds held in Root chakra is facilitated by deeper work say in meditation that removes stagnate accumulated emotional energies.

The energy of Root chakra allows us to harness courage, resourcefulness and the will to live during challenging times. Root chakra connects us with spiritual energies of our ancestors, and our ancestors challenges and triumphs. S
From every thought, intention, or act that we perform or have performed, a seed is sown in the Root Chakra and will sooner or later rise into the light.
The main color of this chakra is red which is also the most dense color of all chakra colors.  Red is the slowest of all the wavelengths within the visible spectrum, yet, it is the most stimulating color.  It pulls the retina forward so all of our energy and attention is focused outward.
That is why we use red color for the stop lights and stop signs. The root chakra color commands attention. It signals danger to us. We act immediately. Red is the color of the life force.  It is the color of blood and the first color we come into contact when we are born.  Red means energy and our connection with the Earth and carries the promise of survival.Buried hurts, unprocessed emotional traumas, and disappointments that were deeply etched into our consciousness come to the surface so they can finally be healed and resolved.

When we learn from them and begin to work on ourselves we progress in our spiritual development. If we do not do this we remain stuck in the suffering and continue to replay the painful lessons.
All of the seven chakras are important and interconnected with each other. Usually, balancing one chakra will create change in another chakra.
Witch Energy feels it is important though to balance the Root Chakra first, before we proceed to others, or we will lack the stability and rootedness necessary for true transformation and personal growth.

We cannot grow and change unless we feel safe and secure.

Life of the Curanderas (the female healer)

Today as the New Moon is  beginning to call my name I  looked back on the time I spent with two Latino healers from another country. As I set my sights again on manifesting out of esthetics into more Holistic and a full time Reiki  healing practice.  To sell my wares as a local healer and Curanderas apprentice and  community healer. 


The Spiritual Counseling practice of Curanderas  (cure) with healthy humor, prayers, spiritual cleansing and healing ceremonies. I  look at the Reiki and Clinical Hypnosis and  look back to the lessons from so many teachers and here under the  careful apprenticeship of the Spanish women of knowledge I began my basic training years ago. 


I was already skilled in  massage, herbs, midwifery and spirit worker,  yet bone setting was not in the cards. What I found that was so similar was the mixing these components, as we  invoke the internal process of the client that supports the overall goal of healing.  The one  ritual I was most taken by was the use of (Genista) the broom to clear away then the use of herbs to cleanse and protect. Being a Sorceress myself I never questioned the work, never skeptical however immensely intrigued by the rituals performed on the other  Spanish kins they  worked on. Here lies the essence of the belief system. The power of belief, the power of your own ability  and belief in the  universal energy source. 


At this time I had a personal struggle,  I will say I experienced during the time I met her  the most upheaval than I was accustomed to, upheaval I was not ready for. I got out of balance with this upheaval and the law of attraction does what it always does, my momentum was fear and failure thus that is the direction I followed and I regained my balance about 3 years later. I didn't know what I was doing but I figured it out and things got really good, I lost balance again a little bit  but I am back in balance again.  


I explained my negative life situation to her and mom listened and acknowledged my presence, she  asked me to stand. She then prayed over me, and waved a candle around me as she prayed in Spanish words that sounded amazing but I  never asked to be interpreted. Candles  Jine tells me a calming,  I use them in my meditation yet to this day it is part of my healing practice procedures for this reason. 


I have always been a herbal user and wild forager, she was  impressed with my apothecary. She brushed my  body from  head to toe with  roots and herb in her sweeping motion I had seem many times before. The scent of the aroma conjured up  many memories she  told me to use my sight, to focus on the  smoke of the incense as she  brushed up and down my arms with herbal brooms. Stating all was well, I would heal and be sad no more. She said she will burn the candle and pray for me. 



Meeting them was amazing, and we connected  right away.  We spent over two years together and I took what lessons I could from her mother and herself on the herbs and cultural remedies they  so freely shared with me. Mom spoke only Spanish and so therefore  she  communicated through my new friend.  Mom has gone back home and we have now parted ways and I know  looking back this  kinship was based on knowledge needed to be passed on. 

It was here that I was guided by Jine and her mother on the use of amulets with prayers and herbs that I still use in my practice today. Things that are unexplained, things that can not be purchased or learned from a book. The burning of incense is the setting a foundation she once told me that sets the tone for the healing  session where prayerful intention takes place. Rarely Sage was used and I am to see this is very mainstream 


Not  healing the broken bone or heart  but seeing it already fixed. I was amazed as it is so closely related to the practice of Reiki.  Mom used healing song and I asked about the  singing bowl for us that can not hold a tune,  she replied that it comes from heart to heart connection and tune is not  relevant and  several session may be needed. We spoke hours on tinctures and salves that I already make taught by my elders and this was shared between us as healers. The healing with  mullein for  asthma and many more hours of  delightful insights that these ladies were vastly knowledgeable on their combinations.  


I learned that  different days produced different healing  treatments and removal of  stagnant energies and she never charged fees only donations accepted. I am to understand that this is  the way of the  community healer and poor country life.  Always  accept donations in a sincere matter so neither  you nor the  patient carry a burden, the circle of energy is complete and no one is to be turned away from healing. 


This was a truly  amazing two year process where I was able to take part in folk medicine on a different level of my own. I  have come to respect and honor the beliefs of other healers and their  kitchen table practices.    


Why does folk medicine work? 


Most of our items nothing special, cinnamon bark for  heat, citrus for cleansing yet  her clients and mine walk away with a overall sense of well being.  I use sound therapy,  aromatherapy and  is it in these that the conscious and subconscious minds take us to memory, times of comfort that cause us you to  reconnect to wellness? I would love to hear your thoughts

Tea as a Healing Modality


Tea Alchemy --- watch the water change, infusing aromatherapy. 
The gentle yet powerful magic of a cup of tea!



In the past 20 odd years of  working with energy and people, one thing I have learned is that holistic medicine is  preventative and therapeutic. I worked alongside some  amazing  body talk practioner, naturopathic doctors, acupressure workers and Chinese herbalist, live blood analysis and more.  

Each one looks at the person as a whole and repairing the body is about using body mind and soul. Energy tells us what needs to be addressed in the body to work  on stronger whole as we together create a platform for strong mental and energetic stability to free you from anxiety and stressors.

I am offering treatments Wednesday to Friday, and first treatments include a free new patient consultation, we do a chakra assessment that allows W.N.S.  to physically show you where your energies are at in the chakras.

Healing

Healing doesn't mean the damage never existed, it means the damage no longer controls our lives.
Breaking out of the Spa Industry into a Holistic Industry take time, self love and care as well as patience. With Structure & discipline we can build our dreams for a better life through Reiki Hypnosis.  When we put  energy outside of ourselves we are unable to manifest our true hearts desire. 

With Saturn and Neptune coming into perfect alignment in their home signs this is the TRUST MOMENT.... in your direction forward. This is about your projects, relationships. What have you been avoiding? 

What makes you happy? Why did you start what you started? For myself I  love the benefits of a zen life, the energy and changes I see with Reiki treatments and  being with those who feel as I do leads me  further into  my path of full time  holistic in 2019. I welcome each of you to  find what makes your heart happy, what you need to do to enjoy your life. Remember this past lunar eclipse energy will either set you up for success or (failure ) for the next 15-30 years of your life.
