Every experience we ever have in life gets filtered through these chakra data-bases.Each event is recorded in our cells.If some of these experiences have been deep and traumatic and still unresolved and unreleased,they cause emotional blockages in our subtle energetic system.These blockages start to manifest in the physical body in the form of illness,depression and dis-ease.Even constant daily stress can compromise our immune system and cause fatigue and emotional imbalances.So in effect,our 'biography becomes our biology'.Each of the 7 main chakras has a corresponding crystal/tumbled stone that the practitioner places on the recipients body in a specific sequence.Crystals are natures gift to supplement and magnify healing by drawing out and releasing the negative, toxic energy from the body and the human biofield,the aura, restoring balance and an overall sense of well-being  to the recipient.This procedure is usually done after a full body Reiki Energy Healing treatment.

Just as radios pick up information from unseen radio waves,the pendulum is a powerful antenna(conduit)that receives information from the vibrations and energy waves emitted by people, places, thoughts and things.It has to do with electromagnetism.Just as birds migrate following the earths magnetic field,dowsers react to energies that are unseen.It is believed that the pendulum creates a bridge between the logical and intuitive parts of the mind of both the practitioner and recipient during a session. Although there is nothing magical about the pendulum its accuracy remains fascinating.The practitioner would use the pendulum before,during or after a Reiki Healing Treatment as well as with a Chakra  Balancing session to detect energetic blockages in the body.

Jacqueline will start with a 5 min consultation then will guide the recipient,who lays on a massage table,into a state of relaxation.The practitioner sets the intention for the treatment and then scans the recipients body to access any areas that need additional healing-'byosen scannng'.The practitioner gently lays their hands on or just above the recipients fully clothed body, particularly over the energy centers, known as "chakras" and at this point receives visuals and insights intended for the recipient.Crystals are added to enhance the healing and deep release takes place This takes about 50min.Then the session moves on to sealing the chakras so the recipient is not left vulnerable and pendulum dowsing and smudging bring a close to the session(about 20mins). The session will end with an Oracle card reading.Reiki feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that surrounds and fills the recipient and includes feelings of peace and well-being. Sensations ranging from soothing,cool tinglings to warm waves are common. Sometimes recipients fall into a deep sleep,see colors, experience visions or insights during a treatment.Each experience is unique,however one is always left feeling refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook.

To get the most out of your Energy Healing Treatment,it is recommended
*That you minimize stimulants (caffeine,nicotine) or depressants (alcohol) and heavy or junk food about 3-5 hrs before and after your treatment
*Arrive promptly to ensure you receive your full session time.
*Drink plenty of water to continue releasing and healing.
*A single session can have deeply relaxing and beneficial results, however if a client wants to experience deeper and longer lasting benefits or use reiki for more serious conditions,it is recommended to start with a set of 4 treatments within a short period of time.This helps the bodys energy centers to open on deeper levels to enable healing to occur more effectively. After the initial 4 treatments sessions can occur on a weekly,bi-weekly or monthly basis depending on the clients response to reiki treatments.


From a metaphysical point of view, good energy effects our "matter" in a good way. Bad energy effects our "matter" in a bad way. Sometimes, there is enough bad energy that some of it gets completely and totally stuck in our "matter" permanently. It makes us feel bad.
Then over time as more bad energy gets stuck, your matter becomes denser and denser (vibrating at a lower level) because of all the stuck energy (bad energy). Your chakras get blocked. Energy stagnates. When energy stagnates disease, depression and lethargy etc can settle in because an energetic blockage can become a physical blockage
We then need a lot of good energy to come along and unstick it. That's where energy healing steps in.
Jacqueline has been trained and attuned to act as a channel for healing energy that removes energy blockages allowing the body to self heal. Reiki Practioners open their crown chakra and allow themselves to be a channel for pure, white light, universal energy by using some or all of the following techiques - their energy charged hands, essential oils, guidance from Spirit, crystals,intuition,intention and reiki symbols. That energy then flows through the Reiki practitioner's body/aura/cells down their arms, and out through their hands where it flows into the client's body/aura/cells, entraining and realigning the energy of the recipient to a higher

frequency which is its natural state.
