Victoria: How did you feel after the session?

Client: It was good, I got to… I came here and I addressed something that I’ve been dealing with pretty deeply on a personal level and I didn’t expect it to pop right up in my head but I laid down and I followed your instructions, the reiki and I fully let myself go… to be open to the experience and I feel really good. I feel like I got a message today and I feel calm.

A happy customer! She describes her experience after a Reiki session with me at the Transcendental Yoga Time event at Colorspace Labs in Philly! She was able to receive a message from her intuition and release a block, with the help of me and Holy Fire Reiki 🔥🙌🔥 In this powerful season of Spring, reiki can ease our transition from caterpillar to🐛 cocoon to butterfly! 🦋 And from bud 🌱to bloom 🌷& from wherever we are now to whatever we desire to achieve, create or let go of.  It was a powerful session! I am so grateful when I am able to help people and see transformation occur in this way!

If you feel ready for change, you can schedule a session with me now, or come to one of my upcoming events or classes.

Struggle

“When a butterfly is ready to emerge from its chrysalis, it chews a tiny hole in one end and forces its stunning new form through the small orifice.

Within this “struggle” of emergence, liquids from deep inside the butterfly’s body are passed into the capillaries of its wings, then harden, to ensure the strength and capability required for a butterfly to survive and fly.

When denied of this “struggle”, the butterfly dies.

When you are struggling, rest easy in the understanding that you are a warrioress, dedicated to the ripened rewards of a proper initiation.” -excerpt from Miss Ascentia 2010

Before I even left for Burning Man I was already preparing for the “decompression” that I had previously heard about. I planned to stay an extra night in San Francisco before flying home. I stayed one night at the Green Tortoise hostel where I was welcomed by a fellow burner. “Welcome back to the world we don’t want to live in,” she said. I nodded with a begrudging smile to show my empathy, but deep down, I felt excited to be back in the real world. Of course, I had a life transforming experience and I knew I would be counting down the days until my next opportunity to gather in community. But I was also excited to “make my life more like Burning Man”~ inspired by the article “5 Ways to Make Your Life More Like Burning Man“. I must have loved my trip so much that I missed my flight home from the Oakland airport. Luckily the Spirit Airlines agent booked me a free flight for the next day, but I still had to find a place to stay that evening. Looking in my bank account, I felt a bit hopeless, but I also felt very abundant at the same time. Being on the playa, I truly felt the expression “The playa provides”. Being in a healing camp and gifting out 4 hours of healing sessions every day was very fulfilling. Since Black Rock City is a city, I treated my position sort of like a job, (but way more fun!) because there was much more freedom than what is expected in the “default” world. There are still rules in Black Rock City and in my camp, as well as guidelines for healing~ like don’t be naked but you can be topless. And the amount of healing that I was there to support was a great practice for me, and showed me what my real life could look like. Not having to worry too much about time or money made everything flow. I gave out my energy in sessions, and then was ready to receive whatever the playa had to offer. It was nice to not have to worry about money in BRC, but it also transformed my relationship with money in the real world, (which I am always working on improving). I used to feel hesitant or nervous about charging money for my healing sessions. But now I realize that money is just energy. And doing my life’s work will create more abundance in the long run.

I am so excited to announce that I have a new space to call my own for a full day every week! Of course, it is my amazing teacher and friend Danielle Stimpson of Learn Reiki Philadelphia‘s space- but it’s “mine” for the day! Meaning I don’t have to worry that there won’t be space available if a client wishes to book. So friends, family, musicians, and anyone that wants some peace, relaxation and clarity- come on up to the studio!

 

My Healing Journey

I am very grateful to Eileen for the energy healing session that I received yesterday. While I do feel that this is a very private and intimate experience that occurred, I am also excited and eager to share what I can about my experience. I feel that she has helped me greatly and I highly recommend her!

I have had chronic back pain for many years, I can remember having it since high school. I remember telling my grandma about it and she said, “Oh it’s probably from those flips you did in Cheerleading”. Although I didn’t remember a specific incident in any of the sports that I participated in, I thought she could be right. And as I started to learn about the Mind-Body connection, I grew more curious of where this pain could really be coming from. I knew that it faded in and out at times, and when I was on vacation or relaxing, and easing my stress, the pain was less strong. So I mostly thought it was caused by general “stress“. But I still knew I had to change something about my mind and my energetic vibration.

I have tried many healers and holistic healing methods to deal with this pain. The first time that experienced metaphysical healing was an Akashic Record healing in April of 2015. I told him about my pain and he placed his hand on my right shoulder to facilitate the healing. It was an unbelievably magical experience, as I had never felt anything like it before. It’s hard to put into words but basically it felt like Source energy flowing through my right arm and body. So after that, I definitely felt a significant change in my vibration, but eventually the back pain continued.

During the session yesterday, we talked a bit first about what is going on in my life and where I want to be. I told her that I am excited about my path as an Energy Healer and I can’t wait until I have enough clients and workshops to make a living full time doing this work. Of course, she was very realistic with me and told me that it is a slow process and I shouldn’t quit my job just yet. As a veteran of the Music Industry, she understood my struggle and reassured me “you can bring your reiki with you no matter where you go, or what you are doing.” While the past year after graduating from college has been rough, I realize now that I am discovering and building my own path and career. These are experiences that I need to have, in order to heal myself and understand the healing of others as well.

“In my Intuitive Energy Work sessions, I utilize channeled Intuitive information and energetic healing methods including Integrated Energy Therapy®, Usui and Lightarian Reiki, Intuitive Readings, Metatronia Therapy®, the Akashic RecordsColor TherapyAuric Clearing, and Cord Cutting I work with clients to clear away any lower vibrational elements attached to the energy fields which cause distress, raise the body and soul’s energetic vibration, and help work through and release emotional and physical issues to transform into your most joyous, successful and inspired self.” -Eileen of Intuitive Energy Work

I am not saying that the other healers and healing methods I have tried did not work. They all have helped me along my healing process (which is ever-expanding). There will always be new things to work on and heal within myself. But I am just ecstatic about the connection that I made with this particular healer. The funny part is, I found her by googling “Energy Healer Music Industry”, as I was looking for someone that might be intertwined in those two worlds and understand me as well. At first I felt a little bit shy to open up to someone I had never met over the phone, but within a minute I felt very comfortable as I felt like I was talking to a loving human and friend. Eventually we got to the energy healing and I lied down on my bed with my eyes closed. She explained some of what she was doing as we went along, which was interesting to me and useful for me to know.

METATRON111111111

She called in various Angels including Archangel Michael and Archangel Gabriel and she said that Archangel Gabriel will stay with me for a few weeks. She asked, “Do you have back pain in your middle back?” I did not mention anything about this pain, so I knew she could really intuitively feel it. I replied that “Yes it’s usually my upper right shoulder,” but I knew she was still sensing the same thing. She said “What happened when you were 14?” and I burst into tears. I had not cried this freely for as long as I can remember. I think the fact that it was a distance session also helped me to let out these emotions and tears. I didn’t even know what had happened when I was 14… I just was crying. She said “When did you have your first boyfriend?” I told her that that wasn’t until I was a junior in high school so I would have been older than 14. This conversation in the midst of the energy healing really helped me to pinpoint and gain clarity of my own healing process. I thought for a moment along the lines of my first sexual experiences with men and something came to mind. I was at a Slightly Stoopid concert in 2008 with two of my best friends. We had been to high school dance where the common dance was “grinding”. We also liked to talk to random people at concerts. It was a Slightly Stoopid concert so of course there were plenty of people drunk and under the influence of other drugs. I remember dancing with a man (maybe in his early 20s?). I remember seeing my friend kissing the guy she was dancing with. For some reason that wasn’t happening for me. I remember looking back at his face and not really having the desire to kiss him, as I had never kissed a guy before and didn’t know if I would be good at it or how to do it. As I write this, I am remembering what occurred. He was a white guy with short brown buzzed hair. He was tightly grabbing my hips as was common in the method of grinding. I feel like I enjoyed being close to another human but I was also unsure of him. I saw other girls with boyfriends in high school, but me and my friends didn’t really have boyfriends yet. He was putting his hands inside the edges of my shorts. Eventually he got to the inside of my sacred vagina. I think he was drunk, and I may have been a little bit buzzed myself. I am not sure of whether I wanted this to happen or not, but he definitely did not ask for permission or have my consent. Consent was not something I really knew about at the time. I basically thought, “I didn’t say no or tell him to stop, so he must have been in the right.” But thinking back now, at that age, I wasn’t even at the age of consent! As I repeat this story, I think maybe I rationalized the experience afterwards to tell myself it was better than it really was. I am even catching myself rationalizing the experience in a way that doesn’t acknowledge my pain and hides my true feelings as a woman. I told myself that it wasn’t a big deal, he just fingered me.  I know that I had my own issues and I probably chose this to happen to me. And the man was probably not trying to harm me at the time, or maybe part of his soul was missing and he didn’t care if he hurt me. (But I like to believe in the good in people). And these thoughts and beliefs may have been part of my rationalization and hiding my own sadness. Anyway, as the healing occurred, I thought of this incident and kept crying even more. Eileen said that a negative entity had attached to me at that time. She said “yes this was a traumatic experience for you”. I realize that there is much more to the incident than the physical act of a man a barely knew fingering me. It involves my own state of consciousness and being and vulnerability at the time, and how I reacted to the whole situation before, during and afterwards in that period of my life. But until yesterday, it had not hit me that that period of my life and that incident had so much to do with my chronic pain. And now I wonder about this negative entity. Where did it come from? Was it from that man? Or was it from somewhere else in the metaphysical dimensions that latched onto me in that state of vulnerability?  And how was Eileen able to clear that entity away from me so effectively? And today that ghost of that pain that I felt for so long is still healing. But this was the most clearing that I had ever felt. I know that I feel great and this feels like a breakthrough for me.

I am confident in myself as a Reiki Healer, and my current level of development of my gifts. The clients that come to me are ready for the healing that I can help them with. As I continue to grow and learn as a healer, I would love to be able to help people as deeply and effectively as Eileen helped me!

Tip-Toe of Faith

leap of faith

When I was at the MUM Expo on Sunday, I spoke to an elderly man with grey hair at one of the many booths providing Past Life Readings. He was there supporting his wife who was doing the readings. I told him about my interest in past life regression, and I asked, “Is there any healing involved or is it just information?” He replied that it was just information, but it could be very useful and helpful to me. A few minutes into our conversation, I noticed that he only had one hand- his other arm stopped around his elbow. I did the socially polite thing and tried not to stare. But during his schpiel, he brought up the subject of his limb. He said, “I was born like this. When I was younger I used to get angry and think ‘Why me?’ But with the help of past life readings, it is more clear that this happened for a reason, for me to learn.” Seemingly unrelated, he asked, “Have you ever seen Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade?” No, I had not seen it. But he told me about the story with the invisible bridge. He articulated the story, with a slight narrative arc, explaining that Indiana Jones had seen a clue that he would have to take a leap of faith at some point. Then Indiana Jones got to the edge of the clif and had discovered the invisible bridge. He then gathered dirt and sticks to cover that bridge so that he could see where he was stepping, in order to get where he was going.

I suppose that the man was implying I should take a leap of faith and choose to get a past life reading from this lady. I’m sure she was great, but my feeling or intuition was not telling me to choose her as my treat for the day. I wanted to be free and wander, and get to the next free lecture which was about transmutation. In the end though, I still got to hear this gem of a story from the older man. And of course being obsessed with the metaphysical, I automatically loved the way it could be thought of as a metaphor for life.

Today I heard the news that I was not accepted for the job position I interviewed for yesterday. Of course I felt a hit of despair and helplessness and confusion. I was all set and being-redirected-not-rejectedeager that I would leave my part time job and get a new one in the holistic field (which I still may, but I’m not feeling as rushed). Once I heard the news, I thought to myself; “this just means that it wasn’t meant to be, and better opportunities are awaiting to be co-created by me and the Universe.”

But I have been thinking about the notion of taking footsteps of faith. In the back of my mind, keeping that tip-toe of faith going steadily. Sneaking past those self-doubts and fears. On the continuous path of growth and expansion. I don’t have to drop everything and immediately quit my job and expect the invisible bridge to be that wide. I can take it slow and discover the bridge at my own pace. As I mentioned yesterday, the Flexible Akashic by Mary Faith has really given me a new boost of inspiration and unblocked any blockages that were in my energy body. I could definitely feel the difference in my throat chakra, and I am using my voice as an instrument for healing. I also went to Kundalini yoga at the Healing Arts Collective last night with Marilyn. I knew I wanted to keep that energy from Sunday flowing, to keep that high vibration. I could feel my hands tingling. At one point, I almost felt like I was having an orgasm! I think it may have been kundalini rising. I was also able to view visualizations at my third eye. I really feel like these things give me a natural high, and they are very healthy as well! One interesting thing that Marilyn mentioned was that we hold generational memories in our spine. So that’s why we do so much spinal flexing and stretching in kundalini! We ended the class with the meditation Ang Sang Wahe Guru. I always love singing in class. This time, I wanted to practice freeing my complete voice and singing from the heart, so I mentally brought myself back to the way I felt the day before, driving home from the MUM Expo. I pretended I was in that car alone, not giving a poop what anyone else thought in the other cars driving by or in the class surrounding me. Anyway, I say thank you to the experience of being declined for the position, because it sparked me to really envision and start planning what I do want. Thank you! ❤

Sacred Cacao Ceremony

IMG_4154On Sunday, I was blessed enough to be able to attend a Sacred Cacao Ceremony at the Healing Arts Collective. Another healer, Bette Hanson, recently told me that I should meet Dante, who would be leading the ceremony. He doesn’t have a website, but I suppose I will link to his Facebook here. He is an amazing soul and shaman and healer. He is a traveler, and he recently returned from South America where he spent time and learned from various shamans. I did not know what to expect from the cacao ceremony but I was very happy and my heart was wide open by the end of the experience. There are many health benefits of Cacao, but it is also a great “heart opener”.

“Ceremonial-grade cacao produces its effects not so much from caffeine as from theobromine, one of its main active compounds. It stimulates the heart. More blood flows to the brain. Blood vessels dilate and skin becomes more oxygenated.”-Elephant Journal

We started the ceremony by going around the circle and sharing our introductions, thoughts & feelings from the heart. I remember thinking, how do I know that I am speaking from the heart? Well at least having that intention is a great thing and can lead to more heart centered speech. We went on to do various meditations and journeys. One included a lot of toning, which I was very excited about. We practiced toning the Uh Oo Oh Ah Aye Eee through the chakras. At that point I really felt that I was singing from the heart, not singing from my mind or judging the sound of my voice. I could really feel the vibrations of my own voice resonating throughout my body!

There were a few key ideas that Dante mentioned throughout the experience. He mentioned that true healing is instantaneous and can happen with the shifting of beliefs. He even mentioned about “that pain in your shoulder”, which spoke right to me and I could feel the pain go away in that moment. (Sometimes it appears when I am more stressed, and sometimes it goes away. He also said that all other forms of healing modalities are secondary; true healing happens instantaneously. When we went around to share, I explained that at first, I felt upset by this notion and the idea that reiki is secondary. But I also mentioned that it could still be a very helpful tool on that path to enlightenment. And he agreed that yes, by all means it is still a great healing tool and can help a lot of people! But you can’t force someone to change their beliefs or let go of any pain they are holding during a reiki session. You can hold the space for them to have the healing occur within themselves, and a reiki session is a great place to do that!

That night, I went to Coda where I would be working in the coat check for an electronic music night put on by Aspire Higher. I knew it would be a chill night, and I secretly plotted to bring out the tuning forks and do some reiki for donations. I didn’t ask ahead of time, I just started doing it and it worked out! I was lovingly explaining reiki and sound healing to the many people that came up to the booth. This is an example of not placing blame on outer circumstances and using what I have in order to further my dreams. Just today, I had a request for a private session from someone I met that night!

I also attended a Yoga and Sound Journey at Sera Phi in West Philadelphia about two weeks ago. It is a spiritual utopia in West Philadelphia with a 3,000 Watt Vibroacoustic wood floor. It is an amazing space and I will be hanging out and even hosting some events there this summer! Sera Phi

Voicemails from Letty

I love my grandma dearly, but there are times when I feel that she is unsettling or disapproving of me, or trying to change me. She left a voicemail that said “Victoria, I just wanted to let you know that there is a job fair at Temple University today. You could go and look for a job where you can make more money.”

This really had me upset, as it was a sign that she was unaware or unsupportive of my efforts to be a full time spiritual entrepreneur, sound healer and reiki practitioner. She was nudging me to get another job. I was hoping to be productive and accomplish things while sitting on the computer at my call center job, but listening to that voicemail pulled me away from the Vortex, and being in a state of self-appreciation. I also realized that the only reason that whatever she was saying had made me upset, was because there was something that resonated with what was already there inside of me. It is true that I feel like I could be more productive and make more money, or the same amount of money in a shorter time than what I do at my current job. And that is something that I am asking the Universe for. But I’ve been feeling a bit stuck lately as I do not feel the desire to move up at my current job, I’m just keeping it to have steady income while I work on reiki. So now I’m using that upset-ness or feeling of wanting to improve and focusing it into my business.

I also realized that the only reason that whatever she was saying had made me upset, was because there was something that resonated with what was already there inside of me. It is true that I feel like I could be more productive and make more money, or the same amount of money in a shorter time than what I do at my current job. (Which I already do when I give reiki sessions!) And that is something that I am asking the Universe for more of. But I’ve been feeling a bit stuck lately as I do not feel the desire to move up at my current job, I’m just keeping it to have steady income while I work on reiki. So now I’m using that upset-ness or feeling of wanting to improve and focusing it into my business. And asking for one new paying client this week. I’m very grateful for my one steady client, that may even turn into a reiki student one day soon!

As I sat reading The Vortex by Esther and Jerry Hicks this morning, I realized that I need to get back to a state of self appreciation and into my Vortex.

51ztpws2mzl-_sx332_bo1204203200_

“If you are angry- you are not a Vibrational Match- and you are not in the Vortex.”

“If you are feeling appreciation- you are a Vibrational Match- and you are in the Vortex.”

Once I read that line, I started to cultivate and feel appreciation for my grandma and all she has done for me and given me. She gave me piano lessons as a small child which guided my strong love and appreciation for music today. She took me to Friendly’s for lunch and ice cream sundaes (healthy right?). And she will always love me, no matter what uncensored thoughts come out of her mouth. Then I read on;

“There is no more important object of attention to which you must flow your appreciation than that of self.”

Yesterday when I walked out of the office on to Philadelphia’s beautiful Broad Street, buzzing with excitement, I encountered a friend that I had recently re-met at Sera Phi in West Philly. He was sitting on the corner playing his electric bass with a hat open to receive money. We talked for a bit and I asked him a few questions about his lifestyle, because he looked so free and happy. I asked “Do you have to pay rent?” He said yes I will be gathering the money to do that soon. But he said he knows that is what he is supposed to be doing. Playing music all day every day. He said “Once I committed to doing this, things just fell into place”. And that really resonated with me, as I know that what needs to happen is for me to make a stronger commitment to my business. He described his past experience with driving 2 hours every day to work in Delaware selling BMWs. He admitted that he loved being able to test drive the cars and appreciated the beautiful craft of nice cars. But he still held that he wasn’t a big fan of money- which seems to be a common idea or belief in circles of people that I surround myself with (artists, musicians, healers).

Another quote from the Vortex:

“Many people want to experience more personal wealth at the same time that they are criticizing those who are already experiencing personal wealth”

-“I would like to be rich/ Rich people are depriving poor people of resources”

I also read a portion where Jerry, one of the authors, described his relationship with luxurious cars. “Once I left my criticism of luxury car owners behind, I drove the most expensive car that was made.” And that got me thinking about my own desires when it comes to cars. I often tell myself, I don’t need or desire luxury items. But then I thought, if I were to have a nice car, I would LOVE to have a Tesla! It would be great to be a part of the revolution or evolution of the wide spreading of clean energy.

THEN, I recalled an instance a few weeks back, where I was quietly sitting at my desk at the call center, listening to the vice president of the company talk about securing her very own Tesla car. I remember thinking, oh that’s cool that she’s progressive and getting a Tesla— but at the same time feeling very jealous and anger towards the fact that I was sitting there making $10 an hour and she was some how related to the cause of that.

Reading on, “The negative emotion that you feel when you believe that others are depriving you of something is not about what they have and therefore what you do not have. Your negative emotion, in every case, is about what you are, in the moment of your negative emotion, depriving yourself of receiving.”

I realized that, the Vice President had nothing to do with me applying for and accepting that job. She also is not the only voice that determines how much money we make there. And she certainly is not keeping me there. So I want to continue to learn and practice Self Appreciation and coming into alignment with Source so that I can be abundant in my own special way. I can receive all of MY desires.

To further this goal and journey, I signed up for a workshop with Multidimensional Healer, Bette Hanson on June 5th in Malvern, PA! Check out her website here: Bette Hanson

 

 

 

 

Sound Healing Concert with the Family of Light

12963579_10154039933910502_8117667824687268466_nLast night I attended a Sound Healing Ceremony at the Philadelphia School of Massage and Bodywork. I had a long day at work and I was so ready to be healed, relaxed and let go of what was no longer serving me.

The group of healers facilitating the journey included; Alexandra DiFilippo, Leigh Seelman, Harold E. Smith, Kelly Hough, Bette Hanson, Sae Guiterrez and Alan Pratt and one other didgeridoo player which I can’t remember the name of.  Every single one of these healers are amazing and I could not have asked for a better night.

Upon arrival, I saw a mother and daughter that I had recognized from a Salt Bowl Ceremony back in October which was where I also met Kelly Hough. Kelly is also a part of Tribe de Mama, and is a proud mother of three. It turns out that she went to the same high school that I did, so that made me feel connected to her. Anyway, I began placing my crystals near my mat, and I also brought out my tuning forks to play and show to the mother and daughter. I had this thought occur in my head, “What if I am being rude by playing my tuning forks and healing, even though I am not one of the healers facilitating the journey/ event.” I knew that the event hadn’t officially started, and I didn’t plan on healing once it actually did. This most likely just goes to show the confidence issues that are going on inside of my head. I guess this also just goes into my own belief about myself being worthy enough. Am I worthy enough to get what I desire and become a healer and make a living doing the things I love? Of course there will still be challenges and I have to be patient with myself, but sometimes I think I am holding myself back with subconscious beliefs.

13000097_10154039933955502_5245459447830313290_n

Bette Hanson, (check out her website here) is a Multidimensional Healer and she gave an amazing introduction when all of the healers were introducing themselves before the event. She talked about how she is blessed to have a tree in her spine, and that her guru is Ama. But more importantly she said something along the lines of, “For all of you that are standing for something, you are not standing for anything unless you are standing for love”. And that putting your foot down sometimes may not be the best way because it’s all love either way. She also said that while it’s great to go out there and campaign for causes, the most effective way is to change yourself from within. That’s why I have been so focused on myself. In high school, I was very involved in fair trade activism, and even in college, I went to the Dominican Republic and visited Alta Gracia clothing factory. Lately, as a young adult, I have been spending most of my time working on myself. But my hope is that the more that I can cultivate peace and compassion within myself, that will affect the world around me as well.

When Harold E. Smith gave his intro, he talked a little bit about his introduction into the mystic and healing world. He told a story about how he could hear this voice that was telling him “I can’t breathe”, then he saw a pregnant woman smoking. So the voice must have been the baby! That’s amazing! But in the end, I don’t think he said anything to the woman. He went on to explain; “As healers, we are here as channels for the energy to flow through us to you. Our guides talk to your guides, and we translate the vibrations to you.” That was a very nice way to put it. While building my practice as a healer, I am also learning about my relationship with my ego. It seems that where I am in life right now, I still need it in order to promote myself and my business. But if I can learn more about it, I can recognize the signs of my ego trying to take control and learn to overcome or undercome that ( and live more from the heart).

I was very excited to meet Alan Pratt, as I had seen him posting videos in the facebook event page prior to the real life event. His presence was very powerful and he also has a playful style of healing. I am often silent when I give reiki or even sound healing sessions. So I really admired his way of communicating (what seemed like) a combination of channeled information and personal advice. There was one part where he sang the words “your angels love you very much” and that must have been a trigger for me, as I started crying for a few minutes after that. But I know that crying is healing so I was happy to let go of those tears. There were many phrases that were repeated multiple times by all of the healers. “Let it go” was one of these phrases. I could really feel the stress and tightness leaving my shoulders as I lay there. There was one part where I could hear scarier, grunted and moaning noises coming from Alan. I heard him say at the end, something like “you gave me an exorcism”. It is funny because when I was younger, I used to be terrified of becoming possessed. But I realize now that maybe it’s not as scary as those horror films make it seem. As a lightworker, I may have to encounter lower energies. I am still scared, but I wonder if it’s partially because of those images I’ve seen growing up where someone gets possessed and they can’t control their own body. What I’ve encountered so far (as far as something else moving my body) has always been positive. Most notably the Marconics session that I had where I felt my right arm raising slightly. I remember being conscious of it, like if I really wanted to, I could move my arm consciously. And with the “exorcism” that Alan had, whatever lower energy may have been stuck in him was already there, so the exorcism should be the least scary part. But I suppose it is also scary to change and let go of things.

Also, near the end of the journey, I remember imagining or envisioning this maroon octopus and tentacles flowing around and sucking things. I almost envisioned it sucking out old energy from me. Then today, the headline came out about Inky the Octopus escaping from the New Zealand aquarium and making it to the ocean. I wonder if this was some sort of psychic connection, or maybe just a coincidence. Either way, I’m glad the Inky escaped from the aquarium!

I am so grateful for the experience I had last night. Sometimes it is hard to come back to reality, but I am grateful that I get to have experiences like that where I feel like it’s all coming together or rather unfolding and unveiling the true Victoria and who I came here to be.

Peace & Love

Sincerely,

Victoria

 

Dear Victoria, Free Your Mind!

I am writing this letter to myself because I want to bring myself back into connection with Source energy and to my good feeling place. I am not writing about my problems so that I can feel bad about them, but so that I can take a step back and gaze down from a larger perspective. And to the readers out there, maybe you have gone through something similar. (Comment below if you feel me!)

“What you’re referring to as your pain, is simply an aspect of you. A version of you, at some point in time and space, that began to run an energetic distortion.” – The Pleiadians as channeled by Nora Herold

I recently saw an email in my work inbox of my part time job at a call center where I make $10.00 per hour. I received my paycheck today and I made $460.00. The email read; Screen Shot 2016-04-01 at 4.56.56 PM

I was ecstatic and emailed the person immediately. It is a part of my nature to want to have excitement, adventure and spontaneity in my life. I thought it would be wonderful to get paid $15 and come out with almost $500 after one week. I received an email today saying that I was accepted to be an actor in the performance and to return the contract and W9. I got overly excited and happy about my bright and exciting future and rushed home to get to my computer. I asked again if she had seen my previous email regarding my work schedule conflicts. She replied; You must make all of the dates or you can not participate. I started crying and feeling similar to when you are little and run to your room and slam the door and start crying into the pillow because your parents tell you that you can’t do something you wanted to do. I felt this angst toward my job in general. Thoughts were racing through my head of quitting and living the life of a freelance worker. But then I realized, I was the one that signed up for this job in the first place. I was the one that sent in my Resume and Cover Letter and accepted the position. I wanted to have a part time job so that I could focus on my other passions outside of the job; Reiki and Yoga. Of course, fears were also running through my head and thoughts of self-doubt. Fear that I will be stuck in this boring job forever, or that I will never make a real positive impact on the world.  Screen Shot 2016-04-01 at 5.08.16 PM

I took a deep breath and realized that I was placing the blame on external factors for making me feel upset or flustered; job, manager, lack of freedom, low pay rate… Yes these things are all things to be considered for the cause of my frustration, but all in all, I have to bring myself back to the good feeling place and back to my center. Sometimes, I also get flustered with decision making and the fact that “anything is possible”. And that I can create the life I desire. But I like to think that it’s a co-creation between myself and the Universe, as well as other co-creators. So I can try to ease up on every minute decision as if it will change the course of my life; ie. The Butterfly Effect.

The scientific theory that a single occurrence, no matter how small, can change the course of the universe forever.- Urban Dictionary

That then lead me to click on the definition of The Chaos Theory.

In physics, it’s a tad more complicated. It states all subatomic and nucleonic particles are all united under ONE force, not gravity, but a very powerful force which holds the very essence of protons, electrons and neutrons together. It branches out into every facet of our existence. Infinite correlation, no probability.- Urban Dictionary

This definition made me feel a bit more comforted, as it mentions “ONE force”, which I can relate to Universal Life Energy, or Source. My goal is to stay in alignment with Source as often as possible, and to become more in touch with my own intuition and to learn to follow my gut instincts. And to learn to say No to what is no longer serving me! It would be more fun to participate in the installation, than sit at my boring job. But it’s also nice to have that peace of mind to know that I can pay my rent, do a few things I love, and still have time to work on building my Reiki and Sound Healing business and clients. I could have stressed and asked my manager to make it work, but I’m already very thankful for the requests to be off that he has fulfilled for me.

In more exciting news, here are two of those events that I was able to gain amnesty for! :

1441037701
Free Your Mind Conference

I will be attending the FYM conference on Saturday the 16th. It was an expensive ticket, but this is one of the things that I don’t mind spending money on in order to further my career and life purpose.

 

Intuitive Development- Spring Series

I’m excited for the upcoming Intuitive Development-Spring Series with Alex DiFilippo at The Reiki School. I attended a few of the Chakra Balancing workshops with Alex in the fall, and the intuitive readings gave me great guidance and insight to things I may have never realized and life tools I never would have tried otherwise (notably Kundalini Yoga).

I love to watch YouTube videos from the greats like Ralph Smart and Teal Swan. Sometimes I compare myself to them or other spiritual leaders and wish I was further along the path to my dreams. But I always have to remember the quote from Preston Smiles “Stay in Your Lane”. The one good thing about my call center job is that it’s a step up from my retail job. I can actually drink coffee in between calls and use the world wide web to communicate or do research regarding my Divine Life Purpose or whatever interests me at the moment.

For now, I can let go and trust that, with my own perseverance and the Divine Order of the Universe, things will work out eventually.

Peace & Love

Sincerely,

Victoria

 

Life is the real Spiritual Teacher

I can read as many spiritual texts as I want, and attend as many classes and seminars as I can, but nothing beats the lessons learned from living life and expanding my consciousness.

“The play of opposites produces beauty

The difficult times and the difficult challenges and the difficult people; they are not all to be frowned at and to be frustrated with. They do not specifically exist to cause you to not be happy and free.

More often than not, the things that you find really enchanting and creative and that touch you in a deep place, you’ll find that those things came to exist by way of the difficulties caused by frustrations and challenges.

When it is daytime we do the things that daytime calls for. We make use of the daylight to the best of our ability and sometimes we take the time to do nothing but to sit back and relax in the warmth and beauty of the sunlight.

When the nighttime comes, we use that time for rest and also for recreation. Sometimes we sit outside and enjoy the breeze and we look up at the sky where we see the stars twinkling, and we see the moon being true to itself as it is in that moment. Sometimes it is a half moon or a crescent, and sometimes it is a full moon; the look of which leaves us in awe.

Even when you can’t help but to frown at life, let all of the frowns and frustrations be at the surface of your being, because the things that cause frowns and frustration exist only at the surface level. Deep down at the bottom line of life, there is always beauty. And it is with that beauty that you should stay connected to because that beauty is not separate from who you truly are.” – Babajide Faseyi 

 

I wanted to write this post as a thank you to my friend Babajide F.

He is a conscious man in Philadelphia working as a bike courier, but he is also an amazing writer and author. He is very generous as he “writes his heart out” and posts inspirational, truthful and spiritual insights on facebook every day. Sometimes I wonder, “why isn’t he famous yet?” But during our phone conversation today, he told me that there is no need to rush our life’s journey. He even explained that as humans, we are a part of nature as well, and he used the analogy, “there is no way that a caterpillar can turn into a butterfly in one minute, or that a 3 foot tree can turn into an 8 foot tree in an hour.”

I told him that I often see quotes online that say something along the lines of :

tumblr_njhrpi0jut1sjwxoco1_500

Or even worse:every-day-like-its-your-last

I told him that these quotes often make me feel stressed or rushed, or questioning why I haven’t gotten to where I envision myself to be. Where I know I can be in my dream world, and why that isn’t translating into reality as quickly as I may like it to. His response was very comforting. He said, there is no “day”, there is only right now. And that may sound like it could make me even more rushed, or to want accomplish everything right now! But I know that he meant that I don’t have to stress or worry about the future or the past, what I have and haven’t yet accomplished in the real world, because I am me (a spiritual being having a human experience). tumblr_mldobbiyuq1sn04vzo1_1280

I found this quote as I was searching for the other quotes. It is interesting to philosophize about this quote from the perspective that Babajide brought to me. Buddha was not saying to rush & live every day like it’s your last! But maybe something more along the lines of just be present in every moment, and be here now. Open your eyes and look out the window and see the beautiful trees, air and sunlight. And give yourself a big hug and say “I love and accept myself.”

I wanted to share a brief story of an unfortunate event that happened in my life recently (or fortunate depending on how you look at challenges). So, I have a Tinder profile, as many millennials in this day and age do. I listed my website and the fact that I am a Reiki Master. I received an inquiry for a Reiki session on my website and found out that he discovered me through Tinder. I was excited to book my first session at the Healing Arts Collective. Long story short, he said he “didn’t feel anything” after the session was over. He asked “what was that supposed to do?”. On his intake form he had written “No Goals” for what he would like to get out of the session. Afterwards he did mention that he wished we had connected more, or that I could explain a bit more about Reiki since it was his first session. Of course I knew that the Reiki was flowing through me during the session, but he may not have been open to receiving the healing energy.

I told Babajide of this story, and he comforted me once again by saying; “Everything happens in the spiritual realm before it happens in the physical realm”. He said that even though this man may not have immediately felt any physical effects, he still may have felt healing in the spiritual realms, or you may have changed his life. Even though this man may have only wanted to meet me for some sort of date, the Reiki session still occurred.

It was definitely a learning experience. I should also remember to “practice without expecting”, as a few of my teachers have said. This means to give a reiki session without planning or hoping for a certain outcome. I still usually hope that the receiver feels good afterwards, and have a positive intention for the greatest healing good. But, I still can not let myself get upset or offended if someone does not “feel anything”. Babajide also said that it is ok to explain or translate things to those who may be at a different level of consciousness. He said that in his writings, he sometimes has to write so that the general public can understand it, even though the message is coming from a very highly conscious level. In the future, I hope that I can be more communicative and be able to explain reiki to clients and people all over the world.

 

Sincerely,

VKP
