How to use the 128 Hz tuning fork on your forehead.

This is one of my favorite techniques to use with the Otto 128 Hz weighted tuning forks, which I call;

“Third Eye Activation”

For people into chakras, they know that this is the third eye, or Ajna chakra. This is also a great point to access the Vagus nerve and have the intention simply to relax the nervous system. You could also imagine balancing the pineal gland.

This is one of the 4 main techniques that I teach in my class entitled “Healing with Tuning Forks”. The most recent class at Learn Reiki Philadelphia was a great success, with 6 students learning the art of energy healing with tuning forks! In the class, students have the opportunity to see a full demonstration of how to do this technique, as well as a sound meditation activation, where they are attuned by Spirit and then have the opportunity to practice the techniques they have learned.

Here are a few photos from the recent class.

Healing with Tuning Forks

I’m so excited to be teaching this specialized class on how to use tuning forks for healing! This is one of my biggest passions in the healing arts, and I believe there is so much creative potential when it comes to vibrational healing. After all, “everything is vibration”.

Healing with Tuning Forks

Step into the exciting world of vibrational healing with Reiki Master and Sound Healing practitioner Victoria Powell! Whether you are new to the healing arts or are a practitioner eager to add the element of sound into your offerings, you will leave with effective new ways to impact the well-being of yourself and others. Together, we will learn to use both weighted tuning forks, which can be placed gently on the body, and non-weighted (Otto) tuning forks, which are great for tuning the human energy field (sometimes called the “aura”). Our three-hour journey includes a group sound meditation, lecture/lesson and plenty of time for practice. Not only will you learn new ways to support yourself and others but you’ll feel sooo much better too! Each class is limited to just 6 students.

New Reiki & Sound Photos

Thanks, Alejandra of Copper Fox Photography for these beautiful photos! I had an amazing time shooting with her around my hometown “Everybody’s Home Town” of Media, PA. It was a bit chilly on this April day, but it felt good to brave the cold in order to accomplish what we set out to, a successful photo shoot!

New Moon Reiki & Sound Healing

Last night, I was feeling drained and “uninspired”. But I still knew that I had to host a group healing session the following morning. I left my tuning forks at my parents’ house, so I decided to go home and sleep on my mattress.

When I woke up, it was 9 am and my phone had died and my alarm was not able to wake me up! I told Adrian that I would be at the yoga class at 10am. Thoughts running through my mind were, “Should I cancel it?” “Will anyone show up?” “Will I have good energy to give to the recipients?”. Since no one had replied to the facebook event, I wasn’t sure if anyone would show up. But I knew that it was also posted on the Healing Arts Collective website. Since I was feeling a bit flustered and tired, and had racing thoughts from the move this week, I was worried that I wasn’t prepared enough for the event, even though we planned it a few weeks in advance. And even if people did show up, I worried, “Am I prepared enough? Will they like what I have to say? Will they feel relaxed?”.

I asked Adrian if I could enter the yoga class late and he said yes. I parked in the Whole Foods parking lot and on my way I checked the Facebook event to see 1 Attending! It was a beloved family friend. Actually my best friends’ mom! She is a yoga teacher and she was the first person to ever take me to a yoga class in high school. I felt relieved to see her in attendance when I entered the yoga class! I felt relieved because I knew I didn’t have to try to impress her. Then, I spotted a friend named James aka Flesh Prince that I met at the Sacred Cacao Ceremony. He is a Reiki practitioner and a musician as well! Here is his dreamy music video:

I knew that he has good energy so I was glad that he was there. I was so glad that I made it to the second half of the yoga class, as I could really start getting in the zone for the Reiki and Sound Healing session. I thought I would be nervous about talking and opening up the session, but really I just had to be myself. I read a review of myself from someone on LinkedIn that supervised me in the Media Fair Trade Committee back in high school.

She wrote “Victoria is a gentle, soft spoken, thoughtful young woman. I watched in total amazement as she delivered a moving and compelling talk — still with her mild manner — to all the teachers and principals of her then high school, Penncrest, explaining why Penncrest should become a “Fair Trade School.” Her authenticity was her power. She convinced her audience! Penncrest became the “First Fair Trade Public High School in the US.” This is just one example of what I witnessed in Victoria when she worked with me. She’s got great integrity and will continue to be a change-maker.”

The fact that she wrote “gentle and soft spoken” in a positive review made me feel really good. I can still be soft spoken and be a public speaker. I don’t have to change who I am, as long as I am loud enough so that everyone can hear. My tone and nature are still generally “gentle and soft spoken”. I am also quiet, meaning that I allow pauses or moments of silence when I am talking. And by being my true self, I can attract my tribe.

your-vibe-attracts-your-tribe-3

I still had a bit of shyness as I started to speak and instruct people on what I would like them to do. But I realized that, while my mind was planning all of the options and possibilities of what I wanted to say or how I wanted things to go, no one else had any expectations, or at least, they had no way to know if I messed up or forgot something. Once I began the healing part, I started by playing some singing bowls and eventually I put on some music by Source Vibrations . Then I went around to each individual with my tuning forks and gave them ReikiSound™ through the tuning forks and Reiki with my hands. Once I was doing this, I could allow the world outside to fall away and focus on the present moment, connecting with each individual ~ (I believe that using the Master symbol helps me to connect on a soul level). There were 6 people in attendance. That is double the amount that I had last time! I am very grateful for this, and that’s why I ended the session by saying “Thank you everyone”. There was one lady in attendance that I had never met before, and she said she heard about the event through Healing Arts Collective! After the event we talked a little bit and she told me of her dreams to use her voice for healing. She envisioned being able to improvise and use the frequencies for healing. I told her that I learned how to do this in my ReikiSound™ class, but I am still working on opening my throat chakra and being less shy about my voice. This gave me the idea that I could really focus in on my niche or target audience of clients, and have my first Reiki class be called “Reiki Level 1 for Musicians”! I naturally feel empowered when I hold and use my tuning forks, singing bowls and didgeridoos. These are my creative tools for healing. So if you are a musician, looking to unleash your creativity, I am here for you! The date has not been set yet, but look out for this class in Philadelphia soon!

Love & Light

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

Loving Life~Heart Centered

I wanted to follow up my last post to explain that, I really love my grandma but sometimes I can get frustrated with our conversations. I also realized that once I changed my inside feelings, I was able to have a more easily flowing conversation with her. Just a few days ago she asked, “So at the Ticket job, are there opportunities for you to move up?” I simply replied “yes”. After deep thoughts about my own life and path, knowing that I have no interest in progressing to a new position at my current job, I was able to reply with a simple answer. Later toward the end of our conversation, I mentioned to her about the awesome opportunity that I had last week, to speak in front of more than 60 people for my Uncle’s real estate company’s Wellness & Fun Day.

IMG_4142

I spoke about reiki and sound healing. Many of the people had probably never heard of reiki before. I was a bit nervous as it was my first time speaking about this topic in front of a large audience, but I did it! I remember looking at the woman in the front with the blonde curly hair. She didn’t look too amused… but I kept speaking. It turned out that she was one of the people that chose to come to me for a reiki & sound session after the lunch! She is a fan of BodyTalk and she really enjoyed the session with me. Maybe if I was a little bit less nervous and smiled even more, the people would have felt the same way. I wanted to find a good balance between pasting on a fake smile and looking natural. This is something that I will improve as I speak about reiki and healing more & more!

Towards the end of the conversation with my grandma, I brought up the success that I had at the Wellness Day and the fact that I got paid! (More than I would at my other job). This lead her to say “Oh, well we have people speaking here about different topics and they get paid as well!” She said that she would mention it to the organizers at her living residence. Just being in the space of love and infinite possibility lead to a potential new opportunity!

 

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

 

Victoria’s New Home for Reiki!

I am so happy to announce that I will be available to do Reiki and sound healing sessions at the Healing Arts Collective on South Street! (519 South 9th Street to be exact).

1430828132

I will be available for sessions every Wednesday from 10 AM to 8:30 PM. If that time does not work for you, please let me know and we can work something out.

I am so excited about giving Reiki sessions in this studio, because of the great community that surrounds it. I have taken classes and attended gatherings including the First Friday Conscious Yoga & Dance party and Community Wellness Day. I attend Kundalini Yoga classes at the studio (almost) every week. And I have learned so many new energy techniques just by attending classes and learning from the amazing teachers.

Last night in Kundalini Yoga with Haripal Singh, he mentioned that each one of us has our own aura, or electromagnetic signature. I love talking about auras, but I really liked his choice of words to describe it; “electromagnetic signature”. We did plenty of Breath of Fire in various poses throughout the class. Among the many benefits of practicing the Breath of Fire technique is that it:

“Charges your aura and circumvent force to give you greater protection against negative forces” – Kundalini Yoga Info.com

Anyway, I liked his phrasing because, for the more science minded people, it explains that even though we can’t see it, we do have energy around our bodies, just like any other unseen energy on the electromagnetic spectrum.

 

 

Love & Light,

Victoria Kae Powell

New Moon, Letting go

DSC04118-Exposure copyI just got done another Kundalini yoga class with Marilyn at the Healing Arts Collective. The first time I went to the class, the chanting and singing and repetitive motions were new and I had to open my eyes to make sure I was doing it correctly. I still had to open my eyes tonight to see some of the movements, but I also practiced closing my eyes and going at my own pace (as Marilyn told us to do). And it’s interesting because part of the meditation was about guidance.

And I just wanted to mention that one of the reasons I started going to Kundalini yoga was because of a sacral chakra balancing/healing workshop that I went to a few months ago with Alexandra D. at The Reiki School + Clinic. Lately as I have been walking and biking around the city I’ve been noticing tons of Psychic readers and their store signs and advertisements. But from my experience with these types of readers, they aren’t really the most beneficial to me. I am only saying this because I want to recommend Alexandra as an intuitive reader.

Anyway, after the Awaken Fair, another healer mentioned my blockage in my throat chakra. This was no surprise as other healers have mentioned it before. But all I can do is slowly and patiently keep working on it. In the ReikiSound class, we have been learning to use the voice for healing purposes. In one exercise, we did a partner exercise where we read the phrase

“{First Name} I unconditionally love, trust and support you, just the way you are in body… mind… spirit and in sound …light…love.”- Natalie Bliss, ReikiSoundBliss.com

We practiced reading it without consciously sending reiki and the second time we read it while letting our voice carry the reiki to our partner. My partner was Natalie and she mentioned that she noticed the way my voice changed the second time, and it sounded like my voice was flowing out of me more naturally. I even noticed a difference tonight during the kundalini class, as I let the mantras and songs resonate as a way of healing, not trying to sound any particular way. I suppose I naturally try to match the tone of the teacher, but I also think that makes the sound and healing more powerful. I could really feel the energy tonight. And I am so happy about the new moon in Aquarius. I woke up with some pain in the left side of my neck. During the class tonight, I remembered that I should go back to my parents house and grab the Mind Body Connection book by John Sarno that I still have to read. Of course I have so much to read. But as I am on this healing journey, I wonder how much of physical pain really manifests from mental or emotional pain. It may have been the way I slept, but I also wasn’t feeling 100% last night. So anyway, this is just something that I want to continue to explore.

0cf2b518965fe7d21bca7c8c15785cab

I also learned from this diagram, that the associated chakra for my sign (Sagittarius) is the Zeal Point chakra, located near the top of the spine and the occipital lobe area. Another source said that the chakra associated with Sagittarius is the third eye. But I think the third eye chakra and the Zeal Point chakra are closely related. I am very grateful that my teacher Natalie is letting each person in the ReikiSound class borrow a singing bowl for the week. I found a bowl that “sings” a G# which is the note associated with the Zeal Point and Sagittarius. It has been working wonders for me (or rather we have been co-creating wonderfully). And I think with the help of that frequency entering my life I was able to have some nice visualizations during the kundalini class. I do want to work on trusting my inner guidance and loving myself more and more every day. DSC04115-Exposure copy

Awaken Fair & Healer Spotlight

At the Awaken Wellness Fair last weekend, I was set up to be doing reiki healing. It was my first fair, and I will admit I was a little bit shy and nervous and I wasn’t getting as many clients as the healers around me. Luckily I was able to tell myself that I can get at least one client before the end of the day. I received a “Mind, Body, Soul” healing session from the healer, David, next to me. I knew this would help get my energy up in order to receive a new client. I met an older lady outside of the entrance to the fair. She asked how she could get in for free and luckily I had an extra coupon for free entry! I gave her my card and told her that I facilitate reiki healing. She said, “I would try that.” So, this lady became my first paying reiki client! She enjoyed the brief 20 minute session, and she said that she felt a lot better and “lighter” after the session.

Before this, I also met a healer named Juanita. I just found out that the ride I was counting on to take me back to Philadelphia from New York could no longer make it. Of course, I could just take Megabus, but I still felt disappointed that my friends were no longer coming to see me and I had to find another way home. Juanita waved to me and I went over to her section. She asked if she could give me a hug. She must have felt that I really needed it in that moment, because I was so happy to give her a hug and I felt more welcomed to be a part of the fair.

Juanita

She is a reiki energy healer and she also creates her own jewelry and infuses it with reiki energy. Here are her websites: Your Reiki Relief & Nitjuan Designs. She allowed me to try her tuning fork. I was very excited because I am currently studying sound healing in a class called ReikiSound. I tapped the tuning fork on the quartz crystal and let it vibrate near my 3rd eye, and all the way down my Hara line to my feet for grounding. I could only feel good energy from Juanita and I was also happy that she took the time to chat with me and give me tips on how to grow my professionalism as a reiki healer. And she probably knows that we are all connected as humans, so it doesn’t hurt help someone else out!

 

This is something that I just read in the book “I AM Love” by Tyler & Corey McEnroe. In the thought patterns that we were raised with, it would have appeared that Juanita and I were both competing for the same clients on that day. But my reiki level 1 teacher always said that he believed that there wasn’t really room for fierce competition in reiki. The right clients will find the right practitioners and the right students will be guided to the teacher that is best for them.
