Full Moon Infused Oils

oils blessed by Full Moon

oils blessed by once in a lifetime SUPERMOON

On the Eve of this Supermoon I made Moonlit Infused Aromatherapy Infusions!

I decided to make my favorite Aromatherapy Blends just in time to be infused w/ the Full Moon Energy of this powerful Lunar eclipse we will be having on Friday!

I made Abundance, Immunity, LOVE & Fertility blends utilizing O’ponopono blue water for the spritzers & all organic, ethically harvested oils. Then of course I Reiki’d the blends w/ powerful Reiki Symbols!

Abundance Oil contains Orange, Cinnamon, Clove, Frankincense, Myrrh, Star Anise, Amber, Cedar, Fir Balsam & Patchouli. All of these oils are money magnets, especially useful in the Fall when we harvest our abundance!

Immunity Oil contains Eucalyptus Globulus, Red Eucalyptus, Ravensara, Oregano, Clove, Tulsi (Holy Basil) ,cinnamon leaf, lemongrass, Orange & Fir Balsam. These oils were used during the time of the plague, by thieves, to ward off illness as they took watches, shoes and clothing of those who had died plague, pretty morbid history, but it does illustrate the effectiveness of these essential oils for decades before! My favorite application of Immunity oil is to put it on your feet when doing the wool sock remedy, anytime you feel a cold coming on. This is a strong oil, so I do not recommend putting it anywhere near your face, better for chest & feet. Immunity spritzer is great for clearing a space where illness has been.

LOVE is St. Johns wort, Sandalwood, Rose & Ylang Ylang & is a powerful uplifter for Winter duldrums & attracts true love.

Fertility Oil contains Clary Sage, Rose Geranium, Angelica & ylang ylang. This oil is wonderful for regulating hormones, easing menstrual tension and increasing libido!
Use with caution, may produce babies!!!

Funny side story, I was clearing my windowsill, so I would be able to place the Aromatherapy bottles in the window for a Full Moon infusion, when I found a baby grasshopper!
He was so cute, I got side tracked into making a little terrarium for him to live.
Then I just had to read the shamanic meaning of grasshopper…Turns out Full Moons were known to coax beautiful music out of a grasshopper, wonder if I will hear his sweet melody on Friday night. They are also bearers of Good Luck, Prosperity, Health & Fertility! How funny since these oil blends are about prosperity, health & fertility! I like to think these blends have been infused with grasshopper magic also, since he sat peacefully in his terrarium, eating clover leaves & watching me pour oils.

It took all day to make these special blends & I can only hope they last through Christmas time, because last year when I made my oil blends I sold out in two weeks & didn’t have time to make for Christmas shopping, so stock up now!
Oils will be available for purchase beginning w/ this Saturday’s First Degree Reiki Class.

 

8 Great Ways to Clear your Space!

Posted on: October 16th, 2016 by healing_arts_admin

 

SOLSTICE Space Clearing Bend, OR

8 Great Ways to Clear Your Space

 Spring is a wonderful time to clear your space! 

Also, When you are starting a new project

When you first move into a new home

 after you have had an argument with someone

after an illness or death in the family

before implementing Feng Shui

Before making a big life change

 

 

1   Clear the Clutter

As Karen Kingston says in her book Clear your Clutter with Feng Shui, “Clutter is stuck energy!”  When I do space clearing for people, I always ask that they leave the clutter where it is just until we do the clearing.  Clutter tells a story in the Bagua, maybe someone is trying to get a new job, but they have old newspapers and magazines filling up their career corner, maybe they want a relationship but their dining room table which is in their relationship corner is covered with work files…Feng Shui is so psychological!

Remember these simple 4 questions for each item in your house “do I love it? Do I use it? Do I need it? Does it evoke a positive feeling or make me smile?”  If you can’t answer a resounding Yes, then donate it, recycle it or trash it!  Here’s another fun way to get rid of a few things, put several things you don’t use in a box that you put out of sight for 6 months.  When you get the box out, see if you can remember each item that is in there, anything you can’t remember must not be important so you then get rid of it!

 

2   Clear the Space with Sound

I went to the best housewarming party once, where everyone was asked to bring an instrument, rattle, sound maker, could be a rain-stick or just 2 spoons to clink together.  30 or so of us just made music (or you might say noise) throughout this newly bought home, the space felt so clear afterwards.

I like to use Tibetan bells to go through a space and listen to the energy of it. When you clink the 2 bells together it should be a long chime, but in some areas of the house the chime may fall flat or dense.  That is where you need the most clearing!  Other sound tools are chimes, brass bowls, tuning forks, drums.  You can clear a space by chanting OHM, which imbues infinite, unlimited positive energy.  You can clear a space by clapping your hands (this works well at the office if you need a quick clearing after a hard meeting). Or just turn on the stereo with your favorite tunes, sing along and see how that shifts the space.

 

3   Clearing with the Blue Flame (fire)

I call this clearing technique “the big guns” because it is reserved for clearing after a death, prolonged illness, if you sense an entity/ghost in your house or if you have just moved in and you want to clear out all that has been there before.  There is fire involved so always have a fire extinguisher, water and a blanket handy.

I use a heavy duty clay pot, you could use a thick aluminum pan, but it will get hot!  Place one cup Rock Salt into your pot, pour rubbing alcohol over the salt, just enough to cover.  Place the pot in the room you wish to clear, on a fireproof surface.  Light a match and drop it into the rock salt.  A large blue flame will appear. Keep your intention on the blue flame to clear out any unwanted energies, you may ask the blue flame, “Please draw into your flame any negativity, energy, entities that do not belong here in this space, let this space be cleared by the blue flame.”  Meditate upon the blue flame imagining all negativity and unwanted energies going into the blue flame and dissolving.  When you feel the space has cleared, dowse the salt with water, using potholders bring the pot to the sink to be sure it’s completely out.

4   Smudging, Incense & Aromatherapy (Air)

Smoke has traditionally been used in spiritual practices such as the incense at Catholic churches, burning sage at funeral ceremonies and sticks of incense at Buddhist temples.  The smoke can carry our prayers to Great Spirit.

Sage is the most common smudge used in Native American ceremonies. I like Sage for clearing out a space, especially after a death or negativity. Sweet grass is a healing smudge and Cedar is good for grounding.  Traditionally you would use a smudge stick held over an abalone shell, using a feather to waft the smoke about the room.  You can use the burning smudge to clear yourself, using the feather to waft smoke from your feet to the top of your head.

Another favorite smudging stick is Palo Santo, which means “holy wood” it comes from Peru. It is said that while Sage clears out, Palo Santo brings good things in, such as abundance, health and love. Palo Santo always gives me amazing dreams, so I like to burn it at night in gratitude for my day.

You can also burn incense to clear a space my favorite is Shoyeido.

Aromatherapy is a wonderful way to clear a space, either using a vaporizer or spritzer.  Lemongrass and Cedar are the best purifiers to clear out old, stagnant energy.

 

 

5   Purifying with Sun/ Moon Water O’PonoOpono

Opono'opono Blue Bottles

Opono’opono Blue Bottles

 

Water like smoke has ancient spiritual properties, such as Holy Water used for baptismal, Mikveh sacred bathing ritual or the water at Lourdes that is used for healing.  Water cleansing rituals are most effective in Spring.

Hawaiian Kahunas believe in placing water in blue bottles in the sunlight to create solar charged healing water (O’ponopono) that you can drink to clear dark spots on your soul.  This water can be used for clearing a space, too.

Salt water is great for space clearing, place 3 tablespoons of sea salt or Himalayan pink salt (or combination) in a bowl of water.  You can sprinkle the water around your room with intention saying a mantra such as “by the power of this salt and water may this room be cleansed, let these healing waters clear this space.”  Salt water is perfect for clearing crystals or trinkets.  Epsom Salt baths are a great way to clear your body, detoxifying and renewing!

A water fountain is another way to bring the power of water into your home, especially beneficial in the wealth corner.

6   Stones and Plants to clear & protect your space (Earth)

Selenite Stone can be used to create a protective grid inside your home.  You place Selenite on all the windowsills and doorways within your home.

Several plants are protective in nature. For outside my favorite combination is Lavender and Rosemary to protect.  Inside any plants that contain white in the leaves such as Philodendron, Dracaena, Spider plants, these will clear the air, natural oxygenators they also protect from radiation.

Himalayan Pink Salt Rock lamps are also wonderful air purifiers and they produce negative ions (like a day at the beach!)

 

7   Sealing and protecting your space with Reiki Symbols or other meaningful symbols. 

In Reiki 2 we learn traditional Reiki symbols for protecting a space and making it impermeable by outside forces.  If you don’t have access to the Reiki symbols, you can choose other spiritual symbols to protect your space, such as a cross, an Om symbol or an image of a golden rose.  Egyptians used the symbol of the beetle or cabachon to protect. All of these symbols have been used traditionally to protect a space or person.  You just draw the symbol on every window and door throughout your home, with the intention of protecting the space.

 

 

8   Bring in the Energizers

Now that your space is cleared, cleaned and protected you are ready for some Energizers. Energizers are those items that uplift, stimulate energy and bring joy to your life.  Some examples are plants, lights, moving water (fountain or aquarium), flowers, art and pets.  Energizers raise the energy frequency in a home.  I personally love Peonies when it is Peony season (usually late May) I have Peonies all over my home. Peonies lift my spirits.  What lifts your spirit?

Gift Certificate



This Christmas there is a focus on giving Experiences instead of “things” because, don’t we all have enough stuff? I have been really clearing my life of clutter this year and realizing many of the things I hold onto that just take up space, are gifts! Sad to say, but usually these are not things I would have ever purchased myself and yet, there they sit on a shelf, in my house, unable to get rid of them because I feel bad to do so. So why buy everyone on your list more “stuff?”
This year give a gift of experience, like a Massage, Reiki, Foot Reflexology, Fertility Acupressure, Prenatal Massage, Deep tissue Massage or even a space clearing.  Our online gift certificate process is simple, just use the paypal button to purchase & we will mail your Spa Gift Certificate the very next day! We have had lots of family and friends purchase Massage Gift Certificates for their Seattle loved ones, a simple gift that the receiver always appreciates!

 

Here is a testimonial from someone who just bought a prenatal massage gift certificate using our online gift certificate program:

“When my daughter in law got pregnant, my son said all she wanted for her birthday was a prenatal massage.  He mentioned that she had been to Queen Anne Healing Arts once before and loved it.  I was able to purchase a prenatal massage gift certificate online, using the paypal button.  Terri contacted me within the hour, by e-mail, to get the address to send it to.  She sent a beautiful card the next day. What a relief, to be able to get her something she really wanted, it was easy, even for me & I’m not high tech.” —sincerely, Margie.

Purchase your Holiday Gift Certificates by 12/21/13 to ensure you receive it in the mail in plenty of time for Christmas. Check back to this blog starting 12/1/13, as we will be doing 12 days of Christmas Spa specials with discounts & giveaways!

 

Reiki level 2 Class w/ Symbols for Distance Healing

Posted on: October 24th, 2013 by healing_arts_admin
Reiki 2 Class - Symbols for Distance Healing

Reiki 2 Class – Symbols for Distance Healing

Reiki level 2 Class – Symbols for Distance Healing


In Reiki level 2 class, you will receive the symbols used for distance healing. You can then provide Reiki across time and space, for anyone, anywhere.  I like to say 2nd Degree Reiki course is the calculus class of Reiki training! This is where you really gain the tools and the know how to provide Reiki for all kinds of situations.  There is so much to learn in Reiki 2, for me this was when my Reiki really took off!

I give the Reiki 2 Attunements on the evening before class because I want my students to have time to process their attunement, sleep it off so to say. Second Degree Reiki attunement provides the Reiki Symbols. These symbols are like keys to open the mind to even greater healing powers.  This is one big, powerful Reiki attunement!

Then Reiki students can come in Saturday morning ready to literally learn Japanese! We learn three powerful, Reiki symbols plus Japanese Kanji for each and how to speak the Japanese words. Once you have mastered how to speak & draw these Reiki symbols, you are on your way!
Students bring in a stuffed animal to use for distance healing, which we practice at great length. I can testify firsthand to the amazing results when you have a whole group of students sending distance Reiki to a person, place or situation! Wow! I have witnessed some real Reiki miracles in Reiki 2 class!
This form of Reiki can be used for distance healing, across time and space, for people, animals and situations. It is truly helpful in hospice situations. You also learn how to create a bridge of light for someone who is dying or even someone who has already passed. You learn how to clear and protect spaces with Reiki symbols. You will learn visualization techniques for distance Reiki healing. This class is so crammed with useful Reiki skills, you can see why I call it Reiki calculus! Once you have completed this course, level 3 Reiki will seem like a breeze!
This form of Reiki is especially beneficial to therapists, counselors, or teachers who want to bring healing into their work, but touch is not within their scope of practice.
You may find some teachers who group Reiki 1 and 2 together. It is my belief that you gain more from Reiki 2 if you have had some practice with Reiki before receiving the symbols. For this reason, I require at least one month practice between Reiki 1 and 2.  Plus, each attunement begins a 21 day cycle of transformation, it would be unsafe to do more than one attunement at a time, for this reason.
Cost for Second Degree Reiki Training is $233.00.

Distance Reiki Healing can help with:

 • Surgery,  Distance Reiki can be sent at exact time of surgery to infuse it w/ healing energy!

• Fertility

• An interview or important business meeting

• Post-traumatic stress

• Releasing an addiction

• Weight Loss

• Resumes and/or business proposals

• Relationship issues

• Buying or Selling Real Estate

• Pain control, injury and recovery.

• Headaches &/0r Migraines

• Insomnia (don’t call me @ 3am !)

• Spiritual support

• Hospice Support, end of life issues

 

 Here is a testimonial from a recent Reiki 2 student:

“I had taken Reiki 1 in massage school & Reiki had never really become a part of my massage practice, though I was still interested in it. A friend recommended I take Reiki 2 from Terri. This class took my Reiki to such a higher level! The attunement felt like so much more was happening, than the 1st one I had. I liked learning about the traditions of Reiki, which we were never taught in my other class. I am so grateful for the symbols, which I use on a daily basis in so many ways to heal my family, pets, friends, clients & community!” Analisa P.
Next Reiki level 2 Class is 12/13/13-12/14/13 Friday evening from 6pm-8pm & then Saturday from 9am-5pm.
