In the healing work that I do, it is crucial to have a deep connection to Source, and to be able to access intuitive information in a clear and accurate way. People often ask me how I connect to Source, and what that means. In order to connect to Source, we must first connect with our Higher Self. Our Higher Self is the intermediary between the spiritual realms and our physical selves. In order to connect with our Higher Self, we need to increase the vibration rate of our energy field. Most people vibrate at a rate of 250-400 Hz; to connect with the Higher Self, we must raise our vibration rate to a minimum of 734-1000 Hz, and open all of our energy channels to Source energy. We can do this by receiving energy work, through practices such as yoga, t'ai chi, or meditation, etc.

A good deal of my practice is providing energy work for clients. When people feel relaxed after receiving energy work, it means that the vibration of their energy field has increased. If they feel nothing, it is likely that they have blockages present that need to be cleared before they can be fully connected to Source. In this case, they may be experiencing a disconnect with the Higher Self. The energy work will set the stage for the clearing to begin so that they can reestablish that connection.

In between sessions, clients can enhance the clearing of their energy field and move toward a greater connection to their Higher Self by paying attention to the needs of their body. From that quiet, relaxed state you find yourself in after a session, you can choose to maintain that state for as long as possible by transitioning back into your day in a mindful fashion. It is nice to schedule a session when you don't have to rush back to work or into a chaotic situation; when you have some time for yourself to process the energy and really take it in. If you can't do this, then try to move into your day with mindfulness and reverence for yourself. Try to stay in that quiet place and listen to what guidance is telling you. Do you need to slow down, drink more water, take the stairs, do less multitasking and be in the moment more? Whatever ideas come to you, take at least one and implement it. You'll be amazed at how the quality of your life will change for the better. If you can relax enough to receive these small bits of guidance on a regular basis, you can begin to develop a relationship with your Higher Self and you'll be well on your way to a deep connection to Source.
