The healing work is on my mind today. I’m in a new space: the office at Wise Awakening, in Bellingham, Washington. This is a metaphysical shop that has a couple practitioner offices made available to the likes of me, bringing healing opportunities to the community. The room here feels so good to be in! I’ve had other offices in Bellingham and in Seattle over the years. Each one has had a beauty all its own to offer the client’s healing experience in a blessed energy. This one, at Wise Awakening, feels so specific and light while being grounded, and nurturing. When I came here to check it out a few months ago, I was blown away by the art hanging on the wall. I wanted in right then and there! What you see when you first walk in is a huge vertical painting by Oceanna Kiddie. Full of confident fire, motion, groundedness, and support of the healing process. I love it!
In typical Erika style, I work diversely: Intuitive readings straight on, intuitive drawing/painting and readings, intuitive healing henna tattoos and readings, and energy healing sessions for people, groups and animals. It sounds complicated but it’s actually an intuitive healing skill I was born with that is applied in different situations. I’ve been a visual artist, and musically inclined, all my life. I’m kinesthetic, sensing through my body is how I receive clear information. These happen to be how I see a person’s journey. The origin of my healing henna readings is described in a post from Sept 17th which includes some info from the Spirit Bird Intuitive Arts Facebook page, in the “About” section.
I offer sessions for folks all around the world. It works just as well as if you were right in front of me. So when I am asked by someone “How does it work if you’re over there and I’m over here?” I am being given the gift of clarifying how “non-local” healing works. I will either make it clearer here, or inspire more questions….which I welcome!
As an example, for art-based healing sessions at a distance, I meet with my client over the phone or via Skype (Skype is preferred because it supports the visual nature of my work). Just like in person, I learn what it is that they would like to work on. Then I tune into them and images come to my mind’s eye. I draw these out until it feels complete and then I intuitively read these images. Readings often are about a particular aspect of life experience, the soul journey, that has come through to help with healing what is ready to shift. The session often also includes direct healing of the body-heart-emotions. Physical healing is part of what I can do. At times, our body/mind forgets or overlooks opportunities to come back to balance. Afterward, the art gets sent with a recording of the reading.
Intuitive experiences are had by everyone. A simple example would be that you can feel someone looking at you from behind or to the side and you, without thinking, turn in their direction and find that they indeed have been looking at you. We feel each other’s presence. It is part of our genetic make-up. Not scary, not magical. It’s normal and healthy to sense others around us. Intuition. So for me, my way with it allows me to help people energetically shift and realize new choices that were not that obvious in the normal day-to-day life experience.
My process is unique. I work on multiple levels or dimensions and don’t add my energy or standard techniques to do what I do. Rather, I am given permission to use the client’s energy and heart consciousness, and this blends with our combined Guidance, showing me how to facilitate the work. I have an energetic “Healing Kit Bag” from which Guidance gives me tools to use “in the moment”. I don’t “decide” that I’m going to do something specific, I am being told what to do through our time together and our joined Guidance. I’m a bit like a tuning fork. I bring the music of your body-heart-spirit back into tune. It’s a very clean, direct, deep process and only works on what is ready to shift. However, this is better experienced than verbally explained!
Energy-based healing: Everything is energy. Popular science is bringing this news to the masses more and more every day. Everything is a vibration, has a sound, is made of light, that is alive in us and around us. In part, this is what contributes to our human energy blueprint. It creates what we look like, how we develop, and what it is like to be ourselves in this life on Earth. Mother Earth is a magical place. She can benefit from energy healing too, and I do this regularly at the various sacred spots I re-boot at, and call Home. I love what I do! It’s a blessing to me. It’s fun, rewarding, and beautiful to see people get up from their sessions feeling more aware of who they truly are, and feel better. I work with animals as a healer and communicator, too. Down the road here, I will write about some of my experiences.
I’m at Wise Awakening every first and third Monday of the month, from 11:00 – 5:00, for sessions by appointment. Drop-in mini sessions for henna readings, energy balancing/healing, and intuitive readings are available also, and I announce this news via Facebook when it is available. There will be a sign out front, too, if you’re just walkin’ by. All ages are welcome. Come by to check it out with a mini session and see how it feels to you. I also hold community healing groups, working with everyone at once. The next one will be on Vashon Island on October 25th, at Vashon Intuitive Arts (206.463.0025).
Word-of-mouth the best way for people to find out about what it’s like to receive a session with me, because no one else works like I do. My process is organic. Writing about it (as I’ve attempted here) may help to a degree, but there’s nothing better than someone saying how they felt before, during and after their session. It becomes really clear it’s something to be experienced. So, I thank you for your willingness to read this blog, and if you’ve had sessions with me, I thank you for your willingness to share your experiences with others and encourage them to give it a try. Together we ALL are working on each other to walk forward in our own Light, healthier, more awake, and clearer.
Live this day like it matters! Because it does!!
