Energy Work

What it is and how it can help you

I have always known about energy work, I didn’t know what it was called, but my mom always did what we called “white light” she would visualize a white light and would send it to wherever I have pain and the magic was that it would go away. My mom went on to be attuned to Reiki while we were in England and I loved it. I even remember when I had my wisdom teeth removed the hospital had Reiki as an option for people who were in the hospital and when I asked the nurse told me that a lot of patients stated that they had less pain and feel that they healed quicker.  

This has been my experience as well with a myriad of different energy techniques. So I have spent a fair amount of time learning several different ones. I have been attuned to the second level of Reiki. I have learned a little Christa energy some Chakra clearing techniques as well as just figuring things out for myself and trying my own things. I have my own ideas about the science behind it but I will leave that up to those that feel the desire to experiment. What has already been proven by scientists is that meditation is beneficial to your well being and like meditation when you receive Reiki or other energy work you quiet your mind and give it a much needed break. 

Pamela Miles is a Reiki Master and practitioner since 1986, she works with the National Institute of Health (NIH), medical schools and hospitals to bring Reiki practice into conventional medicine, explains it very well in her article “How Reiki Helps”  found here  I highly recommend that you read the entire article. She discusses how Reiki triggers our parasympathetic nervous system, which puts our body into rest and digest mode, which is the bodies healing mode.The end result is that you feel rested, relaxed and often times you feel emotionally lighter and in less pain after receiving Reiki or another energy technique.  

Opening!

Thank you all so much for your patience! I will be opening on Tuesday now that Phase 2 has been approved. I am trying to get back to everyone who messages me ASAP and to those whose appointments had to be cancelled due to COVID-19

I am going to start with waxing services and will add skincare back June 30th or sooner, I just do not see how to comply with current standards and provide facial services at this time.

THANKS AGAIN you are all amazing!!

COVID- 19 Update 5/31/20

As we approach Whatcom county’s application to phase 2 I want to let you know what changes will need to be made.

At this time I will be postponing facial services until I can find a resolution to being that close to each other without face coverings. I will continue to honor any Groupons that you may still have past their expiry date. I will continue to do waxing services and will look forward to us working together to follow the states guidelines, listed below.

Client must self-screen for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 before arriving at the

service provider location.

o Clients should not plan on bringing other guests with them, unless they are bringing

children younger than 16 for an appointment.

o Clients should advise personal service providers via call, email or text that they have

arrived at the location for the appointment, and are waiting for instructions to enter.

o Clients should put on a facemask prior to leaving the vehicle, and they should be

prepared to wash their hands for at least 20 seconds prior to starting their service.

o The service provider will wear a clean cape or gown, as well as providing each client

with a clean cape or gown. They must be laundered as noted above, or be disposable

and thrown away after a single use.

o Payments for service should be through credit or debit cards or a touchless system to

reduce the handling of cash.

If you do need to use cash I will have a container available but ask that you bring exact change so that I can just disinfect the money at the end of the day.

We are coming towards the end of this friends and I look forward to seeing each and everyone of you back soon!!

COVID-19 Wish I was opening for Biz Update

Hey everyone! Unfortunately I will NOT be able to open on the 2nd as I had planned. Gov. Inslee announced yesterday that we are not moving into Phase 2 yet and we do not have a date certain goals have to be met and sadly we have not met them yet.

You can find more information on the Whatcom County site HERE

Threshold to Move to Phase 2 
Fewer than:
Current Whatcom County Number (May 11- 25) 
Population: 225,300 residents  
10 new cases per 100,000 residents in past 14 days16.4 new cases per 100,000 residents in past 14 days
22.5 new cases in past 14 days37 new cases in past 14 days
1.6 new cases on average each day2.6 new cases on average each day

I am hopeful that we will meet these numbers in the next 14 days but at this point I will not start taking appointments until we have an actual date, cause I get sad everytime I have to cancel on one of you 😦

I Miss You All so much I am really hoping to see you soon.

Day 5 +

Well that ended quickly 🙂

I started with a bang but then quickly got side tracked as I was waking up later and later and I needed to let the dog out and basically let life live me instead of me living life.

A couple great things though. I attended a workshop on comparative tarot that was facilitated by Amethyst Mahoney of Spiritual Badass University and that brought back to light that I love all things spiritual. It reminded me that I want to be doing Reiki and readings and have crystals in my life and live and attract people that won’t judge that.

In order to actually follow through on this whole Miracle Morning thing; I think that I need to go a little slower I had been waking up much earlier and I think I need to get back to that and then add things slowly.

So my plan is to make sure that I meditate every day and that I wake up by 5:45 am Monday – Friday and write about it. I am aware that journaling and brain dumping are amazingly useful tools in life so that is my commitment for the rest of the week, April 28th – May 1st, I will meditate and I will write something down, either in an actual journal or here online.

Anyone who is reading this I appreciate you I hope that you are getting something out of this!

Days 3 & 4

Day 3
I definitely let things go today I did not meditate but I did do my affirmations and I got some exercise dancing around with Rocky and the kids. 
I did listen to some more of You are a Badass. I really love how genuine Jen Sincero is.  I will add this to Day 4 as I do not have a lot to say about Day Three other than I did not do all things that I should. 

Day 4 
I did not meditate first thing but it is 1pm now and I am going to do it now. I chose a Loving Kindness Meditation,  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1eLKEuJkggw, it was surprisingly difficult. Not just having compassion for others but for myself as well. I found that I was more easily distracted than any other meditations. I think part of this is because I did it in the middle of the day instead of at the beginning. 
I have found that because my Friday and Saturday night is broken up by retrieving my daughter from work at 3 am ( so I guess Saturday and Sunday morning ) I don’t wake up as early as I do during the week so it is difficult to do the morning routine I have created for myself. This upcoming week I will focus on creating a morning routine for Monday – Friday and then a different one for Saturday and Sunday – possibly doing my am routine after I get back from dropping her off? This will require a little bit more work. 

DAY TWO

Today I did a personal meditation using a mantra that I learned from Christa Resources LLC several years ago. 


I ended up watching the interview Marie Forleo did with Elizabeth Gilbert on youtube  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyUYa-BnjU8 It was amazing and super uplifting and just really spoke to me, I was especially drawn to the way they talked about appreciating fear but not letting it control. I know that I have such a hard time with control. 


I also listened to 10 minutes of You are a Badass by Jen Sincero which is a great start but I will definitely be listening to more later. 


I have been noticing that my screen time has been so intense since being at home that it is crazy so I am trying to listen to things and not spend so much time on the computer or the phone. 


We went for a walk so I got some exercise in.  I need to be more aware of doing my SAVERS miracle morning when I first wake up!

DAY ONE

During my Silence today I did a Chakra meditation. It made me realize that I need to write about balancing the chakras, so I will start working on that. 
I need to remember to do my Affirmations out loud probably before I leave my room. 
I started to create a 5 year vision board on Pinterest and will continue to add to it.

Susi Lodola says, “The first thing and most important one is to understand that your thoughts, feelings and behaviours are all interlinked. Understanding this connection will help you stop that inner voice in your head that stops you from achieving your goals.” She provides 6 tips to help with success and I enjoy most of them; speak outloud in the mirror, and positive affirmation being a few of them. I did have a bit of resistance to # 3 Dress Smartly; I love this idea but clearly need to get some better fitting clothes first because sadly this tends to make me feel more self conscious rather than more confident. I will work on finding an outfit that makes me feel good. 


For today I will write down 5 strengths to boost my confidence:

  1.     I am smart.
  2.    I am kind.
  3.    I am funny 
  4.     I am an amazing waxer.
  5.     I take care of others.

Journey to Self-Confidence

Ok, so yesterday after I updated you all about my journey to build self confidence I found some articles and books to read. I have not read them yet but this is a few of the ones I plan on reading during my R time the next few days.

Read/Listen You are a Badass by Jen Sincero The Confidence Code by Katty Kay and Claire Shipman The Self-Love experiment by Shannon Kaiser Self-Love workbook for women by Barbara Horseback 

A problem that I often have is doing too much at one time, so for now I will focus on the S.A.V.E.R.S. in the morning and reading an article and then starting to create some goals around this.

Building Confidence

Hi everyone, with all this time off I am going to spend at least the next 7 days working on confidence building activities. I am going to start everyday doing Hal Elrod’s S.A.V.E.R.S which is :

S : Silence a time for meditation

A: Affirmation a time to repeat affirmations to myself, ideally outloud.

V: Visualization, first I will look at what I want to create and then I will create a vision board and I will look at that

E: Exercise I will exercise for at least 10 mins in the morning

R: Reading I will read 10 mins a day on self help or an article about confidence

S: Scribing I will spend 10 minutes writing

I will start to look at confidence building activities that take 30 minutes or less and will work on doing one everyday for the next 7 days. Today I will find activities so that I do not spend all the time looking for more
