Intuitive Life Coach Enhances Spiritual Guidance with Reiki

Linda Harbaugh, intuitive life coach and founder of Journey to the Self, is adding reiki to her service offerings. This energy healing technique, combined with her intuitive gifts, allows her to provide enhanced spiritual guidance sessions.

Reiki balances the mind, body and spirit though a gentle, hands-on or hands-slightly-above the body session. Through the release of energetic blockages, reiki opens the pathway to wellness. Left untreated, blocked energies can cause stress and illness.  Continue reading

Meet Rosie: Healing Through Yoga

For 17 years, Rosie Lazroe has been healing through yoga. It began in the spring of 2001, when she found herself laying in a hospital emergency room with a resting heart rate over 150 bpm. As the ER nurse was about to inject medication to reboot her heart rhythm, Rosie felt a cold rush flow through her body and then faintly heard her dad tell her to open her eyes. After receiving a second injection, her heart rate slowed down.

Reiki at End of Life: Healer Natalie Bliss Shares Her Experience

ED_AscendHospice-Natalie Bliss_0917What is your name and where do you live?
Natalie Bliss, Philadelphia.

How long have you been volunteering for Ascend Hospice?
Five years.

How often do you volunteer?

Why did you decide to enroll in this program?
As a Reiki Master Teacher, I feel it is important to respond to people’s need for healing. Since the concept of “hospice” in general carries a stigma in society, I felt that the need was probably greater among the hospice population than anywhere else I could volunteer.

When it began, or if there were / A day when it was not.

It has no future but itself, / Its infinite realms contain

Its past, enlightened to perceive / New periods of pain.

~Emily Dickenson
