I've been doing Energy Healing distance sessions for a few years now, and I can say with certainty that they are just as effective as in-person sessions, and cover almost 100% of the same protocols and issues. In addition, they open up possibilities that aren't present in person.
I know that even if you've done a lot of Energy Healing, distance work can feel like a stretch because it just doesn't seem possible, or maybe it's a little too "out there." I was skeptical myself when I had my first distance session years ago...I think it was 2012. But I quickly became a believer, and will also add that the session that most changed my life was a distance session.
I'm sure you're wondering how it's possible for me to work on you if you aren't present. So here's the gist of it - energy is non-local. That means that we don't have to be in the same place for me to work on your energy. I can be sitting in my house, while you sit in yours, even if your house is half-way around the globe, and I can connect to you via the ethers, and hook right up to your system.
In fact, removing the physical plane removes a barrier. Energy moves much more quickly through the ethers than it does through physical space. Connecting on this level is kind of like jumping onto a super-highway with no traffic! You can go as fast as you want ;)
The other really great thing about working at a distance is that I not only feel the movement of energy in your system, and can adjust and release energy as I usually would, but I also "see" more than I do in a physical session. Some of you are aware that I don't see energy with my eyes open, at least not most of the time. For me to see energy, I have to close my eyes and observe with my third eye. In distance sessions this inner vision becomes more powerful, as does the connection to spirit.
If you're still not convinced, here's a story to inspire you!
Just another day at the office... and, why I love this work!
I'll refer to my client as Celine. Her session began with some big questions about the direction of her life, things she's been agonizing over for quite some time. She wants to fulfill her life's purpose, has a sense of what that is, and has been actively working in that direction, but she's feeling pulled away from her family in the process which is distressing to them all. In addition she's had some terrible nightmares that somehow seemed related. On top of that, she's dealing with the current stress and chaos the pandemic has created in her family's schedules and daily life.
We began by following the energy, going where it needed balancing, which led us to the 2nd chakra, where a lot of deep fear that was holding began to release and flow up and out. As it moved, it brought up related blockages situated in different places, finally triggering deep movement in the 5th chakra. We were periodically checking in with her guides on the situation, to get some information about the nightmares and direction she should take. At this point, they had confirmed that she should continue some work she was doing at home, a passion that she has been able to devote more time to now that she and her family are home. They also confirmed that the nightmares were related to a fear of following her purpose, because she felt too much would be asked of her, and she would have to sacrifice her connection to her family in the process.
And then something amazing happened. I had paused after the work on the 5th chakra to allow the chakra to adjust, and as I watched, energy from deep within the chakra began to open, much like a flower opening to bloom. From this opening flowed a beautiful and sacred energy - I was expressly told not to touch! As I continued to observe, what looked like a hard black diamond began rising up out of the chakra. It felt incredibly valuable or precious. Checking again with Celine's guides, I was told that this object carried information from an ancient time, lost to humanity, but that had been stored as if in a library somewhere on another dimensional level. When coming into this lifetime Celine had volunteered to bring in and reseed this information on the planet.
I shared this with her as it was happening, and she in turn shared that she has always felt a strong sense of duty and responsibility to fulfill some sort of mission, though she had struggled to figure out what it was. In addition, she had been told not long ago by a psychic astrologer that she seemed to be a "keeper of knowledge or information." A few more questions to her guides helped us determine what she is to do, how to go about it and where to begin, and the best part is she can start in her own back yard and doesn't need to be separated from her family to fulfill her commitment.
Needless to say, it was a wonderful session for both of us!
In the world of Energy Healing, your body's immune system response is directly linked to the stability of the energy systems, and particularly of the Triple Warmer Meridian .
All of the exercises on this list will increase the stability of your overall system, which assists the Triple Warmer Meridian in staying balanced and capable of doing its job of directing the immune system response to ward off foreign invaders such as viruses and bacteria.
5 things you can do right now to boost your immune system and increase stability and resiliency:
1. Do Donna Eden's Daily Energy Routine. Clicking will take you to the online video version. I tell my clients all the time that this routine creates a strong, stable "container" for your overall energy system.
This ultimately boosts your immune system by keeping key components in balance, and creates resiliency in your energy systems so that you are less likely to catch viruses, and bounce back much more quickly if you do.
2. Do the Porcupine Reactivity Exercise by Ellen Meredith:
Begin by imagining you are grabbing energy out of the crown chakra at the top of your head with both hands, on the inhale pull up and out to the sides of your body, arms outstretched, exhaling your hands to the floor and imagining that you are now sending that energy down into the earth below your feet.
On the next inhale do the opposite - grab the energy from the earth below your feet with both hands (use your imagination here), and with outstretched arms pull it back up, and on the exhale land it on the top of your head.
You have just traced the taurus of your energy field, stabilizing the field as well as stabilizing the Triple Warmer Meridian (the main player in your immune response) and its reactive tendency.
3. Get grounded!
Stand with feet firmly planted on the ground, preferably barefoot and on grass or dirt. Hold your hands to your sides, so that palms face the ground. Take 2-3 deep breaths and visualize sending your energy out your feet and down into the earth.
This stabilizes your field and all the interwoven energy systems, as well as discharging stale, stagnant and toxic energy and bringing in fresh, nourishing energy.
4. Quick root chakra clearing -
Hold your left hand with plam facing towards your body about four inches above your pubic bone. Make circles with your hand, going from left to right, for about 8 turns. Now switch hands, and while holding your right hand, palm facing your body about four inches above the pubic bone, make circles from right to left for about 8 turns.
The root chakra has the important function of discharging toxic energies collected in the chakra system, and pulling in fresh energy from the earth to revitalize that system, as well as stabilizing your overall system by keeping you well connected to the earth's energy field.
5. Power Point to Sixth Chakra Hook-Up -
Place one middle finger in the Power Point, the indentation at the base of the skull/top of the spine, and the other middle finger at the center of the brow. Push in firmly with both fingers, hold and breathe for about 1 min.
This connects to the nervous system, and sinks the balancing and stabilizing effect of the other exercises into your system on a deeper level, as well as locking in the balance you've created by telling your body to "stay here"!
Finally, follow all the basics of good health - reduce stress, eat good healthy foods, drink lots of water, get plenty of sleep, and exercise often!! All of these things keep your immune system in good shape by keeping your stress level down (ie, Triple Warmer Meridian in balance), flushing out toxins, and keeping the energy moving!
I’m often asked what Energy Medicine is and how it helps people. My usual response is to address how Energy Medicine can help rebalance the imbalances at the root of physical, emotional and mental issues, because the energy systems are foundational to our health on every level. After working with many people on a myriad of issues, it’s my expectation that physical and emotional symptoms will lessen greatly and often disappear completely as we peel away layers of traumas, emotions and limiting beliefs, and, that they will experience an increased level of wellness and vitality, many times reporting that they “haven’t felt this good in 10 years.” These improvements are wonderful, but there is something else, something infinitely more beautiful, happening on a deeper level.
As I’ve worked with clients for extended periods, I’ve observed that as people release old patterns, and the stuck emotions around experiences that have shaped their perceptions of life and of themselves, many subtle foundational shifts take place simultaneously. The process can best be described as a gentle unfolding of the self, not unlike a flower that slowly opens to the sun, and reflects back the light that it absorbs.
As clients move through this process of unfolding, they become more in touch with who they are at their core, more attuned to their own higher consciousness, and more at ease with themselves and with life. Peaks of joy are experienced, sometimes for the first time, and the little stresses of life don’t have as much impact. People who had once walked in with visible tension in their faces and their bodies move with a relaxed ease, and tension is replaced with smiles and laughter.
For some people these changes happen relatively quickly, for others they take longer. Regardless of how long it takes, the process itself is a joy to watch, and always brings moments of awe, inspiration and gratitude to both client and practitioner.
This case study was published on the Innersource website in April of 2017. Click here to be taken to the Innersource webpage where it resides.
Helen and her husband John had been trying for years to conceive. Helen came to see me at the age of 37, two years after having miscarried, with complaints of infertility, lack of passion, “overall” pain that came and went, and insomnia. She had received acupuncture off and on for years and was aware that she had a Kidney deficiency. She and John had given up on trying to get pregnant, and they had changed their life plan from starting a family to building their careers and focusing on physical/emotional/spiritual healing. They were interested in trying new therapies to heal past traumas and for personal development. In Helen’s first session she said “I’m not here to work on fertility, I just want to feel happier.” I had a premonition at the time that she would get pregnant through the course of the work, but that it would be a few months before we got there. I kept this to myself however, and we began our assessments.
The two things that stood out immediately were Helen’s Triple Warmer, which was highly reactive, and her K1 point (beginning of Kidney meridian line on the bottom of the foot), which was closed shut. It was as if the doorway to the Kidney meridian (and connection to the earth, grounding, yin cycle, et cetera) was closed with a huge heavy door and bolted shut. I probably spent about 20 minutes in the first session using magnets to open the K1 points and correct their polarity, as well as her overall polarity. Not surprisingly, Kidney meridian was quite weak. Helen decided to come in for a session every other week. Her homework for the first few weeks, in addition to the Daily Routine, was to use the Mellow Mudra hold for Triple Warmer reactivity and to bolster Kidney meridian by holding its acupressure strengthening points. As we progressed, we added emphasis to the Penetrating Flow, Belt Flow, polarity, grounding, cross-overs, and strengthening Spleen meridian, both during the sessions and in her self-care.
Over the next few sessions, Helen’s Triple Warmer reactivity calmed, Kidney meridian strengthened and held its energy, and her K1 points shifted from feeling like a door with iron bolts to a closed door, then a swing door, and finally to a door that would stay propped open! This was supported by her diligence with her daily self-care.
Her big shift, and one of the most amazing things I’ve felt in my work, came in the fifth session with the Deep Healing Electrics protocol. Near the end of the session, after about 45 minutes of holding the main electric points, a beautiful radiant energy started pushing up from underneath, marked by an undeniable will to live, and to be connected to this physical experience. As it pushed up, I held the space open for it to move, as if I were holding open heavy doors and waiting for it to pass through. Just as I was wondering how much longer I could hold this opening, it expanded into the field, releasing the need to hold the space, and shifting the energy into a beautiful encompassing glow. I knew we were complete. At the time, I interpreted this as Helen’s own will to live a full, joyous life coming through.
After the Deep Electrics session, the Triple Warmer reactions stopped. Two weeks later Helen attended a retreat where a psychic took one look at her and said “when are you due?” When she responded “what do you mean?” the woman said, “well, you’re pregnant, didn’t you know?” She recounted this one month after the electrics session, with some discouragement. She had gone to get a pregnancy test that came back negative. My thought was it wasn’t quite time yet, but maybe we were close. Again, we focused on healing her system and emotions.
One month later, and four months after starting Eden Energy Medicine, Helen came in and announced with a smile that she was pregnant! In the subsequent months, she continued to do EEM and worked with TRE Trauma and Tension Release Therapy, which she’d begun just before the pregnancy. She experienced deep trauma release in the first trimester, and the EEM techniques were important in stabilizing her system through these releases. We focused on keeping Kidney and Spleen meridians strong, chakras clear, and clearing out residual energies from old traumas. The pregnancy was smooth and painless, without any nausea or other discomfort, which Helen believes to be the result of the ongoing EEM work. Their beautiful baby girl was born in March (exactly one year to the day after beginning EEM), and mom, dad and baby are all doing well!
It’s clear to me now that the radiant energy that pushed through during the electrics session with such a strong will to live was the energy of the baby moving into the physical plane, and that this energy was already accompanying Helen before the biological reproductive process was fully underway. What a wondrous experience it was, and such a gift to have been a part of it!
It was a big night for Tallahassee on March 24th when Donna Eden and her husband David Feinstein gave a three-hour class at the Leon High School auditorium. My Energy Medicine colleague, Amy McDowell, was the event organizer and grand master, but as always Donna was the luminary of the evening.
Donna inspired event participants with her contagious enthusiasm for the body's ability to heal and our ability to heal ourselves simply by changing our energetic patterning. Here are a few photos from the evening:
It was an evening of lively demos and lots of surprises for audience members as they learned the exercises of the 10 minute daily routine, which bring a number of important systems into alignment and ensure that your energy anatomy is strong and resilient. According to Donna, on the path to healing a body that is out of balance, getting the daily routine exercises balanced on a regular basis is 70% of the work., a compelling reason to do it faithfully if you are committed to regaining your health or preventing health problems.
I've since heard from a number of people who attended the class who have been doing the routine daily and are already feeling the benefits. I'm not surprised, in fact, I would be surprised if they were not feeling the benefits, as just about everyone seems to notice positive changes within a week or two, from a sense of being more relaxed, more patient, and less fatigued, to more dramatic results for individuals dealing with health issues.
All told, this was a great night of community and learning new skills for a variety of age groups. Everyone who came had a chance to speak with Donna and some even had their life colors read! Thanks to everyone who came out and participated!

Rather than using my newsletter to review 2013 and look for take-aways (which is always valuable, mind you), I chose to focus on the turbulence we've been experiencing in one of the more mundane areas of life - the weather.
I simply could not pass up the opportunity to address such cool weather occurrences as the Polar Vortex and the Bombogenesis, and of course, make some observations on how similar turbulence can exist virtually unnoticed in our energy fields and thoughts. Click below to find out what vortexes may exist in your life and what you can do about them, then share some of your vortexes in the comments section!

The Vortexes of our lives...
Some common vortexes observed in clients and others:
Facebook Vortex – Being sucked through the portal of an endless newsfeed to a virtual reality free of the constraints of time and space.
Sugar Vortex – The magnetic force in your hand that attracts all things sweet, often unnoticed, only to be discovered mid-bite.
Vortex of Despair – The stirrings of panic that explode if given too much attention, accompanied by thoughts of ‘this will never work’ ‘I’ll never get it all done’ ‘my life will never change…’, etc. - note the prominence of ‘always’ and ‘never’ in these moments.

Time magazine presents some of the latest research and questions about the effects of meditation on overall health.
There's a nice short piece on the BBC News website about a public health counselor who uses EFT very successfully with patients who suffer from depression and anxiety. Out of 36 patients, all but one made huge improvements. Here's the link if you're interested: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-25738689.
Just another triumph for EFT!
1. Stop trying to be perfect and be unique
If you are still functioning under the delusion that perfection exists, wake up!
It doesn’t! Being imperfect is a beautiful thing, it’s like the difference between an exquisitely
handcrafted piece of artwork and a mass produced item you might find at
Walmart. One is unique and intriguing, the other is boring.
2. Stop caring about what others think
When you boil it down, you are either living for yourself, or living for others, who,
incidentally, may not even be aware of you or your actions.
3. Do more of what you love
This one speaks for itself, it is so obvious, so life changing, and sadly, so overlooked.
4. Do less of what you dislike
The obvious and often overlooked counterpart to tip number 3.
5. Spend quality time with people you love
Relationships with people you love (who love you back) are foundational to emotional wellness.
Feed them and you will feel better!
6. Practice gratitude
Practicing gratitude lights us up on the inside, and literally lights up the self-healing energies in your
body. These same energy circuits connect us to true joy and a deep sense of well-being.
It’s no mystery why being grateful makes us happier and healthier!
7. Focus on effort over achievement
It’s too easy to overlook the amount of work we put into something and the growth we achieve from it when we don’t get the results we want. This is especially relevant in parenting. If we teach our children that the only value is in the outcomes they will often give up without even trying. But if we emphasize that we are proud of the effort they put forth regardless of the results, they will be encouraged to repeat the process the next time they face a challenge.
8. Take good care of yourself
You take good care of your kids, your pets, your plants, your yard – but are you taking the same good care of yourself? Do you see to it that you eat three nutritious meals every day, don’t watch too much tv, exercise and get fresh air on a regular basis, and get plenty of sleep every night? In short, are doing what
you should to be healthy, happy and thrive?
9. Keep your energy balanced
This is so easy, just practice Donna Eden’s 10 minute Daily Energy Routine. When your energy is balanced you just feel good!
Take advantage of any excuse to celebrate life – birthdays, anniversaries, good report cards, professional accomplishments, holidays, Fridays, a beautiful Sunday afternoon with nothing to do, etc. Celebrations don’t have to be loud and accompanied by balloons or alcoholic beverages, they can also be quiet and sweet, like walking hand in hand with your child down a quiet path in the woods, quietly celebrating being together.
