Energy Healers, Shamans … And Knowing Who to Trust

Energy Healers and Shaman

Most spiritual seekers have had an energy healing session of one form or another. Perhaps they have had some sort of color sound therapy, or seen a shaman or other medicine person for a soul retrieval or other process. They have probably had a Reiki session or even been trained in that modality. Typically those seeking energy healing assistance are looking to heal something physically or mentally/emotionally. Or perhaps they want to break through a pattern in which they feel stuck in one or more areas of life. 
I had a spiritual awakening back in 1993. Almost immediately I found books by Stuart Wilde who then became my first spiritual teacher. And I found Karen Schweitzer of the Body Mind Center in Reading, PA, who soon became not only a dear friend, but my go-to energy healer and spiritual adviser for many years. Week after week I went for Reiki sessions, her unique form of past life regression and many other sessions and experiences. I had years of physical and mental / emotional abuse and trauma/drama to heal. Karen helped me find inner peace, taught me numerous practical  techniques for handling stress, and recommended great classes and books. Practically every time I went home from a session with her, it was with a book she was loaning me to read or a stone or object that she had infused with healing energy for me to work with until next time. It was a beautiful time of exploring and involved a massive amounts of energy clearing. I feel so blessed to have found her.

Physical Pain and Entities

Up until the day I met Kaaren Shikiah Kaylor, I had never needed, or even thought of, having an energy session for physical pain. I so rarely have physical pain. But living in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the energies there brought up so many things, I often found myself dealing with phantom pain from past lives and had lots of encounters with disharmonious energy, vampires, energetic attachments, etc. Where there is light, there is also darkness.

We had just moved to Santa Fe a few weeks prior and I had been invited to have a booth at a Goddess Weekend in Madrid, NM. As I was setting up the booth, I suddenly began having excruciating back pain. I could hardly walk I was so uncomfortable. I was still setting up the booth when this woman, Shikiah, was doing the opening ceremony. When my then husband, Raven, came back to the booth after the ceremony, he said, “I scheduled you an appointment with Shikiah.” Hmmmm I am freaking picky about who I let work in my energy field. I had never laid eyes on her and yet, I was scheduled for a session. If it weren’t for the pain, I probably would have cancelled. I like to make my own appointments, thank you very much. hahaha

I walked down to the teepee where sessions were being held and went inside. It was so lovely and beautifully decorated in there. Shikiah and I instantly connected and have been dear friends ever since. I was sitting on a cushion and as I explained about the pain, she walked around behind me, grabbed whatever it was in my energy field and threw it off. Whatever it was had hold of me with such intensity that when it let go, I literally fell forward with great force and the pain was absolutely and totally gone, never to return. It was a truly strange experience and it let me know, quite dramatically, that entities are real. After that, whenever I had pain, Shikiah was the one I called on for help.

I Am an Energy Healer

I’m an energy healer, the kind naturally born with the gift. I’ve been called the Chalice of Divine Frequencies and many people come into center and balance just being in my presence or listening to my voice. I am an amplifier and clarifier and I am extremely intuitive. For the past twenty+ years I’ve been in Spirituality and “Energy Healing School” through various ways and means. It all began with Reiki … the doorway many walk through to enter the world of energy healing. It quickly expanded into something else entirely when the dolphin energy healers entered the picture and sort of took over my world. I say that laughingly and lovingly.
According to a channel in New Zealand, I work with “a very fine frequency . . . Feminine integrated energy.”
Hopefully by now you know the story of how I learned to meditate and as soon as I began meditating, dolphins started to spontaneously appear in my visions and dreams, bringing with them powerful energy healing frequencies and processes, which I was then able to transmit to others.

Whatever you are called to do as a true life purpose, those talents and gifts you came in to awaken, activate, fine-tune, and enhance, often require that you grow immensely in consciousness and awareness, healing layer upon layer of fear and limitation in order to step fully into that role. That’s what I’ve been up to for two decades … awakening, activating, fine-tuning, expanding, allowing, healing, growing, in a never ending spiral upward.

Like everyone, I’ve gotten stuck and required assistance to move forward on more than one occasion. I’ve developed friendships and business partnerships with people who showed up so I could fine-tune and hone my “bull shit” meter (pardon the language), my ability to read energy, my ability to sort between the truly, authentically, genuinely Light and the wolves in sheep’s clothing – those who appear light, use all the right words, appear to be intent on helping others, but are instead running hidden agendas and in some cases are energy manipulators or actual energy vampires. If you are going to work with energy, this is something you must master.

Read more about the nature of who I am and what I do here.

How to Tell the Dark from the Light

Sometimes developing the ability to tell the difference takes a bloody long time and the emotional damage created by getting involved with the wrong people can be devastating. Of course all of it is about the learning and there are never truly “wrong” people in your life. Everyone is there for you to learn and grow beyond whatever you are experiencing.
The more your heal your own issues, rise in consciousness and awareness, and have encounters with disharmonious, unkind, manipulative people, the easier it is to spot them next time. If you are on a spiritual path, these are part of the lessons one must learn. If you don’t heal the issues, you will continue to draw those same type of people until you have.

Manipulative Healers

Sadly, there are energy healers out there who do a disservice to others by telling them they have a particular problem, causing them to break down emotionally by pointing out a deep dark shadow issue, but fail to provide solutions. Those types of healers are definitely to be avoided. I find that behavior unkind and manipulative. It is about as irresponsible as someone doing energy healing who hasn’t fine-tuned their ability to see, feel, or hear what is happening in the unseen.
Talk about the blind leading the blind. Just as people you can see range from the Dalai Llama to serial killers, the unseen realms are teaming with everything from angels and Ascended Masters to downright scary entities that you really don’t want to mess with unless you have been trained to do so. Naivety and a few words of protection do not provide a safety net. 
I recently read a thread on social media where a guy said he went to a shaman. The shaman told him that a sorcerer had placed a curse on him, but since he didn’t have much money and this was an initial free consultation, he was left with knowledge about this horrible thing going on, but no solution.  
 
I jumped in to the conversation and agreed with someone else who commented about what you latch onto mentally causes a HUGE impact on your life experience. I almost never get readings and am extremely careful about who I let do any form of “healing” with me or do work on my energy field.
If what the shaman said was really there, they should have cleared it out completely, disconnected them from the person, and sealed up and protected their energy field, then taught them things to keep that going.
You have to take part in your own healing. You can’t be “fixed” entirely by another. A lot of it is belief and the release of fear.
Energetic attacks are real. But anyone talking about “bad” things that result in doubt and fear within a client, needs to also be giving them tools and advice about how to remedy the situation. Just planting seeds of doubt and fear is no good for anyone. It is, however, a great way to get repeat customers who need to be continuously “fixed.” Maybe that was not the shaman’s conscious intention, but it definitely could have been. As a side note, most true shaman would never call themselves that. As my dear teacher, Stuart Wilde, once said … If they call themselves a master, they aren’t.
The person went on to say that the healing was incomplete because it was initially a free intro. After discussing finances, the guy left depressed.
 
That sounds to me like a scam to get customers. It is, sadly, human nature to give power over to those who seem to know more than we do about various things – particularly when dealing with the unseen realms. When I say give power over, I mean believe, without any filters whatsoever, whatever they say.
And belief happens not only with the conscious mind, but the unconscious as well. You may think one thing and believe something else entirely. True healers, those born with the gift and who have spent years honing and fine-tuning it are rare.
When you have cleared, healed, and aligned yourself enough, then the energy and intention of others becomes more apparent. You can then, fairly easily, tell the energy level (meaning clarity and level of consciousness) of whomever you are going to for support.
Until then, you end up in situations like this person did. This is not a bad thing, it is a learning experience. The more difficult encounters you have had with energy and people running hidden agendas, the more you grow and evolve as a person. It’s like training wheels for your personal mastery.

Some Will Steal Your Power

Selo Black Crow, a Lakota Medicine Man, once looked me in the eye and said “Never go to a Medicine Man for healing because he will steal your power.” I was shocked to hear him say those words. But then I went to a female Native American friend and repeated what he said. She gave me this look that kind of said to me “you poor ignorant white girl” and said, “yes, everyone knows that.” Well I didn’t know it.
I am not at all saying that all Medicine Men, shaman, or energy healers will do these things. There are some extraordinary healers out there that can literally facilitate miracles. I’m just saying be careful and don’t assume just because they call themselves shaman or Reiki Master, and show you a laundry list of training certifications, that they are any different than other people. Some are nice. Some aren’t. It really is that simple.

How Can You Tell?

If you spend time with someone and afterwards you feel confusion, worry, exhaustion, or self doubt, that is a neon sign that you have been manipulated energetically and/or mentally. Clear the energy between you and spend less time with them if at all possible.

How often do you take the time to meditate, open the energy channels within the body, connect to the earth and your Higher Self?

These are actions I take every single day. I encourage you to do the same. As you continue the practice, you will become better at determining  people who are running harmonious empowering energy vs the opposite.

Have a glorious day,

What is Vibrational Medicine or Energy Healing?

What is energy medicine and vibrational healing

Healing Can Be Easy!

Wouldn’t it be an ideal world if all we had to do to overcome illness and disease was to lie back and listen to beautiful music? Well it’s not as far fetched as you may think! From hands-on healers standing next to surgeons in the operating room to physicians calling psychics for assistance in diagnosis . . . the latest technology in the health arena is called “Vibrational Medicine” or “Energy Healing.”

Not Some New Fad!

Interestingly, vibrational healing is nothing new. It has been successfully practiced in numerous forms all over the world for thousands of years. Only recently has it come to the forefront in western society. That’s because scientists have finally developed instruments that are sophisticated enough to measure how and why this mode of healing works. Considered “quackery” in the past, many of these “alternative techniques” are now being used in tandem with mainstream medical treatment. My chiropractor has recently begun treating patients with acupuncture. The American Holistic Nurses Association is now training RNs to use therapeutic grade essential oils, also known as aromatherapy, in a clinical setting.

Ancient Indian texts accurately describe the human energy system. Information and diagrams not only detail where the main energy centers are located but also, what part of the endocrine system each energy center works with and how imbalances in the energy center affect the physical, mental, and emotional state of the person. Specific vibrational tools are suggested for correcting imbalances depending on the particular energy center involved. These energy centers and the energy field surrounding the body can now be seen using Kirlian and other special photographic equipment.

Quote about energy medicine and vibrational healing

Tai Chi is a Form of Energy Healing

The Chinese studied human energy for many years and came up with their own unique methods of working with it. What they discovered is that just as we have veins and nerves running throughout our bodies, we also have lines of energy called meridians. If the flow of energy along these lines is moving smoothly, we are in a state of good health. If the energy is blocked or there is too much energy in one area, we are in a state of dis-ease. Chi Kung and Tai Chi contain movements that open up the flow of energy along the meridians. Chi Kung exercises are designed to move and balance energy throughout the body. Tai Chi is a series of movements that works with the energy channels as well as increasing strength and flexibility of the physical body. It is now recognized by the MS Society as a valuable therapy.

Everything in the universe is energy. Nothing is actually solid. Instead objects are made up of microscopic particles vibrating at such a fast rate that they appear solid. Our limited sense of sight doesn’t let us see the movement, or vibration, of the particles. Every object, including human organs, have a natural healthy vibratory rate referred to as “resonance”. If a part of the body begins to vibrate out of resonance or harmony, it creates what we term dis-ease. Jonathan Goldman, author of Healing Sounds: The Power of Harmonics, says: “If parts of the body become imbalanced, they may be healed through projecting the proper and correct frequencies back into the body.” Vibrational Medicine looks at the energy anatomy within and around the physical body. Imbalances and disharmonies are treated using frequencies from flower and gem essences, sound, therapeutic grade essential oils, radionics, homeopathics, acupuncture, color, hands-on healing, and crystals. Each individual sound, color, crystal, or flower essence has a specific quality that is beneficial for a particular human organ, system, or emotion.

Low Frequency Equals Poor Health

Researchers found that “the normal frequency range of the human body is between 62-68 MHz; but if it drops below that, the individual becomes a candidate for illness . . . Cold symptoms appear at 58 MHz, flu symptoms at 57 MHz, candida at 55 MHz, epstein bar at 52 MHz, cancer at 42 MHz. . “. . Stated simply if we can keep the body frequency high enough, and well oxygenated, we will be free of disease.”

Disease Prevention is Possible

Part of the intense interest in the field of vibrational medicine is the knowledge that disharmony shows up in the energy field before it becomes a problem in the body. If imbalances can be detected while still in the energy field, theoretically dis-ease can be avoided altogether. Another plus for vibrational healing is that it seems to have no negative side effects. It does, however, tend to produce more smiles, more energy, and an overall feeling of wellbeing. Most vibrational medicine techniques are complementary to one another and to traditional medicine.

Essential Oils are High Frequency

The higher the frequency, the more life force an object contains. More life force means better health.

Life force is called Chi in China, Ki in Japan, and Prana in India. Each of these cultures has developed elaborate ways for humans to increase and balance the amount of life force they have within their bodies. Researchers discovered that “processed/canned food had a zero MHz frequency, fresh produce had up to 15 MHz, dry herbs from 12-22 MHz, and fresh herbs from 20-27 MHz. Quality essential oils started at 52 MHz and went as high as 320 MHz, which is the frequency of rose oil.”

Essential oils have been used for thousands of years to treat physical and emotional ailments. Jean Valnet, M.D indicates in his book The Practice of Aromatherapy that essential oils are not only used to clean and disinfect European hospitals, replacing harsh chemicals but are also used to treat patients and are sometimes even ingested. In one test, it was found that when a person drinks a cup of coffee, his/her frequency can drop by as much as 10 MHz. It can take 3 or more days for his/her body to return to its original frequency. However, if they use an essential oil of 75 MHz or higher immediately after drinking the coffee, his/her frequency returned to normal in less than 1 minute.

In addition to their use as vibrational healing, therapeutic grade essential oils provide many other key roles in improving health. Essential oils serve the same function in the plant as blood does in the human body. Their complex chemical constituents cleanse, protect, oxygenate, nourish, and offer many therapeutic benefits. Many therapeutic grade essential oils have antiparasitic, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties. They also dissolve the petrochemical microfilm coating on human Growth Hormone (hGH) receptor sites. This microfilm prevents the receptor sites from receiving hGH properly which directly contributes to premature aging and a myriad of other health issues. That is why essential oils are included in my Dancing Dolphin Sacred Healing Oils and other vibrational healing products.

Negative Emotion Creates Disease

Gregg Braden, author of Awakening to Zero Point and Walking Between the Worlds, has research results which indicate that negative emotion causes the frequency of the body to decrease. On the other hand, feelings of love, joy, laughter, and other positive emotions cause the frequency of the body to increase. Jane Buckle, MD, international lecturer, and former Nursing Assistant to the Queen’s Physician of England, told me that if a person has an auto accident and doesn’t deal with the fear that it caused, within 2 years it will show up as disease in the body.

The Harmonic Scale of Emotion, as described by Robert Tennyson Stevens, indicates which emotions are high frequency and which ones are not. The highest frequency emotion is enthusiasm. Love and joy also fall into this category. This is followed by pain (emotional or physical) which is followed by anger. The next lower frequency emotion is fear, which is followed by grief. Below grief is apathy. Finally, the lowest frequency emotion is unconsciousness (meaning it is so awful we have completely blocked out those situations from our lives). If we are experiencing anything less than enthusiasm in any area of our life, we have lowered our frequency and are running the risk of dis-ease. In order to be healthy, people must increase their frequency.

Energy Healing Vibrational Medicine

Much of my work and products address how to raise your frequency in order to stay healthy and happy. I often share unique exercises to help you heal the past permanently and keep your vibration high instead of being stuck in fear, anger, resentment, and the other lower frequency emotions. One well researched technique for reducing stress and improving positive emotions is meditation.

Protection from Electromagnetic Frequencies and Negativity is Available

Most practitioners of Vibrational Healing use dowsing or a technique called Applied Kinesiology (muscle testing) to determine what frequencies would be beneficial for a person. If a product or frequency is beneficial the person will be strong. If the product or frequency is detrimental the person becomes weak. A test I often do as an example for my students involves a cell phone. When the cell phone is turned on, the person becomes weak. This happens because electromagnetic waves from the cell phone are disharmonious, disruptive frequencies for the human body. After spending a day at the office in front of a computer screen and under fluorescent lights most people feel wiped out. In truth, they are feeling the detrimental effects of electromagnetics in their energy field. Thankfully there are scientifically proven products, like The BioElectric Shield, that can protect a person from electromagnetic frequencies.

Flower and Gem Essences Aid in Healing on All Levels

Flowers contain the greatest amount of life force found in plants. Flower essences contain the energetic signature of the flower trapped in water through the use of sunlight. Each flower represents one or more qualities or emotions expressed by humans. The use of flower essences aids in balancing those qualities or emotions. This in turn aids in healing the physical issues caused by the imbalances. One of the beautiful qualities of flower essences is that they are self-regulating. This means a person can’t take too much. When an optimal level is reached, the body and energy field simply stops accepting the essence.

Richard Gerber M.D. wrote Vibrational Medicine: New Choices for Healing Ourselves which is considered the definitive text on vibrational healing. In it he describes what he terms “The Human Multidimensional Energy System.” An egg shaped energy field (or body) surrounds the physical body. There are several layers that make up the energy body. They go from the lowest frequency of the physical body at the center to higher and higher frequencies as you extend out toward the outer edge. The names he gives the various energy layers are the etheric body, the astral body, the mental body, and furthest out the causal body. Dr. Gerber indicates that homeopathy only works with the physical and the etheric bodies. Flower essences, however, work with all the subtle bodies, the physical body, and even higher spiritual energies. Regardless of the origin of the problem – physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual – flower essences can aid in healing. Many individuals and practitioners prefer my line of flower essences and aromatherapy roll-ons to all other brands.

Sound Can Be a Powerful Healer

Sound moves in waves through the air and is measured in cycles per second. According to sound healing expert, Jonathan Goldman, humans only hear within the range of 16 to 16,000 cycles per second. Dolphin sonar is around 180,000 cycles per second. Richard Daab, in an Interview with my friend Ilona Selke, writes that, “Dolphins recently have made the news as being better therapists than many humans. People in pain receive relief from swimming with dolphins when nothing else has helped. Autistic children suddenly become cooperative and interactive, where only a wall of silence was seen before.” Perhaps it is because dolphins emit such a high frequency that people experience healing while in the water with them.

Healing with Sound can be accomplished in many ways. Sound healing practitioners can play instruments, use their voice, or play tapes or CDs. They can even have the client lie on a bed with speakers and circuits arranged so the music waves literally flow through the entire body. This special bed is often referred to as a “sound chamber.” At the beginning of the article I mentioned just lying back and listening to beautiful music in order to heal. Remarkable experiences have been reported with the use of sound.

My dear friend and sound healing pioneer, Jonathan Goldman, and I have put together a powerful new series of sound healing energy elixirs called The Essence of Sound.

Hands on Healing is a Powerful Way to Raise Vibration

Reiki and Therapeutic Touch are but two of the many names for Hands-on Healing. While a person sits or reclines, high frequency energy flows through the practitioner’s hands to the client. The various types of hands-on healing use different hand positions and movements. Several scientific studies have been performed which clearly show that a greater amount of energy is emitted from a healer’s hands than from a non-healer’s hands. Apparently we all have the ability to channel high frequency energy through our hands. We simply have blocks in the energy channels in our body, which prevent us from doing it. Through the practice of Chi Kung exercises or the formal study of Reiki and other techniques, we are able to open the necessary channels to be hands-on healers. A few individuals are born with the channels open and they are considered “natural healers.” The most famous practitioner of hands-on healing was Yeshua ben Joseph (Jesus).

At the beginning of the article I mentioned hands on healers and psychics aiding doctors in their practice. These are the specific examples I was referring to. Julie Motz, a healer from the U.S. and author of Hands of Life, accompanies an open-heart surgical team. She does hands-on healing with the patient before, during, and after surgery. Recovery time is much shorter for patients who receive this treatment as compared to those who do not. Caroline Myss is a medical intuitive and author of numerous books including Anatomy of the Spirit. Norman Shealy M.D. began calling and supplied her with a patient’s name and age. With just those two bits of information she could provide a diagnosis of the patient’s medical condition, as well as the emotional trauma or belief that caused it, with greater than 95 percent accuracy.

Energy healing can also be performed long distance. I offer what I call The Seed of Divine Restoration long distance energy healing. Many people swear it was the single most transformational experience they have ever had.

Prevention is Always the Best Policy

Gabriel Cousens M.D., in the Preface to Flower Essences and Vibrational Healing by Gurudas, says, “Although we often misperceive disease as something that happens on the physical plane, the true cause of disease comes from a conflict between the mind and the soul. While vibrational therapies such as flower essences can help overcome these problems, even stimulating healing of physical diseases, inner tranquility and calmness to prevent and overcome the real causes of disease can only be obtained through spiritual practices such as meditation.”
