Transformational Healing Sessions ~ a fusion of Sound Medicine, Shamanic Energy Medicine, and Reiki ~ are customized to guide clients into a state of deep relaxation, opening the receptivity of body and mind to release stress and move deeper into the healing state. In this higher state of awareness, clients are purified of heavy energies, supported in trusting their own inner knowing, freed from old wounds and pain, and empowered to make meaningful change in their lives. These sessions have a few essential components:
Receptivity ~ it’s essential that clients let go of the need to actively engage with the work, and enter into a state of receptivity. Letting go of the busyness of the mind and connecting with the body are essential to this process. From an open, receptive state, clients are able to enter an energetic flow that clears heaviness, and leaves them feeling lighter and revitalized.
Intuitive guidance ~ each one of us has our own intuitive guidance system, and this is often clouded and blocked by the conditioning we receive as children, both from our families and our culture. As heavy energy is cleared, it is easier and easier to engage directly with that inner knowing. From there, it is possible to find answers to life’s deep questions and challenges in one’s own heart.
Shadow work ~ some energies clear readily, and others linger because of life experiences that have left a strong mark, often resulting in wounds and trauma that can linger for a long time. In a safe and protected space, moving slowly, these wounds and trauma can be uncovered, understood, and healed with full respect and gentleness for the lived experiences that brought them into being. As shadow work brings things to light, profound changes happen, bringing clients to experience a greater sense of freedom and joy in their lives. Shadow work may also include the powerful process of soul retrieval, which seeks to reunite all parts of oneself in wholeness, and is a beautiful engaged process of entering into profound self-love and soul relationship.
Emotional release ~ when energy is moving and shifting, it can sometimes feel like the very foundation of oneself is being rocked. Both in sessions, and following them, it is possible for clients to experience greater sensitivity, and allowing space for this to emerge is essential. It is important to allow all feelings to emerge within a safe container, and to have a grounded and helpful way of engaging in that process. While not all sessions will trigger a strong emotional release, it is possible that clients will feel sadness, grief, confusion, anger, frustration, and more, and this is a welcome part of the process! Learning to allow and be present with feelings is deeply healing.
Personal empowerment ~ in the old paradigm, clients would come to a shaman or healer so that that person, a person of power, could heal them. Many years ago, Angela was guided to understand that while a healer may be able to support a client in coming back to balance for the moment, lasting change comes through the client claiming their own healing process fully. In Angela’s work, she supports clients in stepping into their own personal power, their own inner knowing, and their own healing flow, providing compassionate guidance and empathic listening all along the way.
When scheduling a session, Angela and the client discuss the client’s particular needs and intentions for the work, crafting a session that will address wherever the client is on their journey. Sessions can focus on any single modality if desired, but are often a fusion of modalities. Sessions can also focus on any of the above components of the work, meeting the client in the moment with what is needed most. A single session can be helpful, bringing a client into deeper presence and alignment, and clearing any accumulated heavy energies. For deeper personal work, including complex and ongoing challenges, a series of sessions is most helpful, preferably on a somewhat regular basis. This allows the work to move in a progressive and cumulative way, diving deeper into the roots of those challenges, and also offering support for the process of transformation that is certain to occur. When engaging in a series of sessions, clients may be asked to engage in regular “homework” to support the continued process of healing and change.
