Frequently asked questions

What is Shamanism?

Shamanism is the world's oldest form of healing in the world, originating in Siberia. Shamanism is cross cultural and is a way of connecting (in trance) to the Spiritual world and natural world around us. Shamanism is concerned with what goes on beneath the surface of things, why we do what we do, and better yet - how we fix and heal them if need be. Shamanism often uses the natural flow of life as its guide and its greatest teacher, showing respect to the creatures around us and tapping into the energy that connects us all. No religion, religious beliefs or dogmas's are associated with Shamanism or the practice of Shamanic Healing, in any way.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.

How many sessions do I need?

Each individual and each individual issue is different. In general though, I recommend at least 10 sessions to properly get to the root of all major issues or themes in someone's life, to truly heal the layering aspects around it. That's why I offer a discounted 10 session package; for people committed to making tangible long-term changes in their lives. After that, my clients will see me periodically every so often for "check ups" or to help them start manifesting the things they WANT to manifest in life.

Am I too broken to be healed?

We are all broken. That's how the light gets in. Many of my clients come to me feeling like they are too broken, too damaged, too wounded to even deserve to be healed. But we are often the jailers of our own thoughts, our own self-hatred, and our own realities. We all make mistakes, it is a necessary part of life, and often (if used properly), those very mistaked can often help give us purpose and inspiration to do better. We only know what we know at the time we know it - and sometimes our mistakes and our trauma's occur because of cirmcumstances out of our control, our conditiioning, and what we know (or don't know) at the time. By learning to release the effects of whatever guilt, shame, anger or fear we carry inside, in relation to our brokenness, we start to understand better WHY we have made the choices we have made in our lives, and HOW we can start to do things differently today and tomorrow. I can help you repair the cracks to being whole again.

Can my negative energy and issues affect you?

They can't. My training and form of healing does not allow for other people's energies to affect mine. Unlike other healing modalities, I am fully protected while working on my clients, and never take on the energies or wounds of those I am working with. In fact, I usually end up feeling more energized after having spent an entire day helping and healing clients. That's the power and beauty of what I do.

I am afraid and ashamed to share my darkness with anyone.

Our sessions are 100% confidential and non-judgemental. As a Spiritual and Energetic (Shamanic) Healer, I know that the root causes of our issues and our darkest secrets, stem from aspects of woundedness and conditioning that has affected us in adverse ways - and everyone is worthy of forgiveness, even you. Sessions can even be held in complete silence, with no sharing or talking involved. The healing energy goes exactly where it is needed at the time - with or without words. Each session is held with compassion and grace.

You work with Angels, are your sessions Religious based?

No, sessions are 100% non-Religious or culturally based in any way. Although I can work with some Angelic aspects in my sessions, belief systems or dogma's are never a part of it. As a Spiritual and Energetic Healer, tapping into the energies and spiritual aspects around us, aide in my ability to get to the root of my clients issues - and find the best solutions to help them heal in the most affective ways.

Do you take private insurance?

It all depends on each individual insurance company. Some plans do cover Reiki. If yours does, then yes. If not, look at these sessions as investments towards loving and honouring yourself. Towards finding peace and happiness. Towards living a life of positive changes and growth. Towards taking care of your health not just energetically - but physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually as well. We all put our money and our energy into things - what matters most is where you choose to put yours.

How can Spiritual and/or Energy healing help me physically?

Our body systems work in miraculous ways - left to their own devices they are able to heal, produce life and keep us healhty. When we experience negative things in life, trauma's and other harmful mental-emotional events that cause us pain, we store those experiences in our energetic body and non-conscious mind. And much like clogs in a drain or kinks in a hose, those energetic or non-conscious experiences stay logdged within us as blocks, often limiting our physical body from doing the thing it is capable of doing best - healing us and keeping us healthy. Spiritual and Energic Healing helps to remove the blocks we often times don't even know are there - allowing our physical body to function more optimally, helping us to feel better and recover faster from chronic and/or accute injuries or ailments.
