Talking Shit and Emanating Bliss: I’m Ascending

This post was originally published in January 2015.

Bliss does not come from having a life of sweet tea and roses all day. At least it hasn’t for me. If you were simply born BLISSY and never had a bad thought enter your head, I’m sure you are either from another planet, or you are certainly an enlightened being. Read more

On Being an Energy Healer: How Vegas Brought My Sizzle Back

holding hands

My first crush was a boy who lived across the street from my Nani. In our kindergarten year, he proposed marriage to me on the “good morning” circle, and kissed my hand. That was the first time I recall the sizzle. I had fun with it. My hands and feet would tingle when I touched certain people. In third grade some boys caught on, and enjoyed sitting across from me — gym shoe to gym shoe. I assumed they felt it too. (Please don’t forward this to my dad).

You’ve Got Healing Power Within You, and it’s TIME We Uncover it and share it! 

Advanced Reiki Classes for 2014: Earth and Self Healing

Come join Gina and Doug for an inspired adventure into the art of Reiki Healing with a Shamanic Twist. These classes offer a practical take on using both modern and ancient healing techniques to help yourself and others through pain, indecision and illness – as well as heighten your consciousness and open you to your spiritual path.

The year 2014 lives within an energy field of rapid advancement into higher consciousness for our planet as a living being and all of us who live within Her. There are also major galactic shifts that influence our expansion. We are truly coming into an integration period where we are calling back the parts of our selves that have been lost over lifetimes, and realizing that each one of us holds parts of each other. We are One. And, we are figuring that out.

Ancient Shamans and “medicine people” understood how to live with our planet and use and restore her gifts for the growth of all. Integrating these teachings with modern experience, we can learn to transcend our problems by transforming our perspectives and heightening our vibrations.

We have more than just the power to heal. We have the inner power to shift. This connection offers one of the deepest, most satisfying feelings we have ever experienced and that is why we are sharing it with you now. We know that if this class is calling you — you will really dig it too.

Level 3-4 Reiki Master Teacher Attunement and Certification: Walking in Energy

There is no mastering source energy. The Reiki Master is one who understands and chooses to forever tap into that beautiful light, and live in alignment with their true purpose. A Reiki Master lives by the Reiki principles, and uses Reiki each and every day. It is not difficult. In fact, it’s almost too simple. The attunement and certification are here to help remind you of the bliss behind living in alignment with your true self, and since they raise your vibration, they make it easier for you to live this way. As a Reiki Master you experience and learn more about energy and the connection of all each day. You will also learn:

  • Master Symbols
  • How to perform a Healing Attunement
  • Teaching and Attuning your own Students
  • Whole Body Meditation
  • Compassionate Healing
  • Channeling Universal Energy for all levels of Healing (physical, emotional, mental, spiritual karmic)
  • Working with Spirit Guides
  • Using Psychic Surgery to remove unneeded energies (illness, pain, relationship patterns)
  • Sharing hands-on and distance healing with yourself, friends and clients
  • Handouts and resources for post-class follow up
  • Support for Post-Attunement 21 day cleanse (foods to eat, affirmations, journals etc)

When Gina first became attuned to Reiki, she did it to help her grandfather who was on his way out of this lifetime. Little did she know that this beautiful practice of energy healing would bring health, peace and clarity to Dougie as he recovered from autism, to Doug as he recovered from a seizure disorder and to herself in every aspect of healing that she needs.

Since then, there have been countless miraculous experiences like helping children heal injuries and organ malfunction from a distance, helping people connect with their own intuitive and psychic abilities, and simply expanding the consciousness of those who desire.

Now, our whole family has been attuned to Reiki, and we allow that beautiful energy to flow through everything that we do. This makes our need for sharing even stronger.

We look Forward to Sharing this with You!

20121108-190239.jpg

Do you ever wonder where some of your “gut feelings” come from and how you can use them to find more balance and relief in your life?

Let’s Explore Your Soul Connections and Soul Purpose. And Let’s Dig Deeper into Knowing Your Helpful Guides through Time.

We live in a reality where very few people actually connect to and understand the many dimensions of creation and HELP available to us. We are here to help YOU wake up and understand that YOU have so much power to connect.

In this class we will explore Your Soul Purpose and the Guides who have been with you through your journey. We will adventure into past lives, dream lives and the many dimensions you experience on a subliminal level.

Join us for Guiding Lights and Discover:

  • What helpful energies are guiding you
  • How to easily raise your vibration and connect with them
  • How to translate the messages being given to you and discern intuition from “imagination”
  • Where your soul has been in a sense that will Help You Today
  • What hidden skills you can connect with and use to enhance your life
  • How to make peace with fears, regrets, resentment, and life long questions
  • How to find your soul contracts
  • How to integrate into your most whole and fruitful reality

You will be able to “tune-in” to the deeper messages that lie in your intuition and learn how to differentiate between various forms of helpful guiding energies and translate them into Practical Solutions in your Real Life. You will have the tools to answer life-long questions and overcome deeply rooted fears. All of this information is already a part of you — we simply use the workshop to uncover it. Join us!

Plus — We will share some really cool Atlantis and Lemuria connections that will bring clarity and BLISS to your soul-searching!

Bliss Tour Summer 2012: Come See Us in Chicago, Cleveland,North Carolina, California, Mexico and More!

20120616-013814.jpg

We’ve spent the last 5 months touring the west coastline of Mexico, and really healing up after some challenges last year. Doug is completely free of seizure meds and hasn’t had a seizure in well over 2 years! We’ve met new and lasting friends, learned so much about the value of family and our beautiful planet’s gifts, and we’ve taught classes and given healing sessions in some pretty magical spaces. Unschooling is the bomb. Dougie is uncovering his true abilities, and it’s amazing to witness and experience with him.

So, we’re ready to Bring the BLISS to YOU!

Do you long for MORE ENLIGHTENMENT?

Do you want to be MORE in-tune with your body?

Would you like to reach your ideal weight and feel great?

Would you like to feel SOURCE ENERGY COURSING through your VEINS?

Whatever you’ve been wanting to experience– We’ve got something to LIGHT Your Path!

Each Day we help people from across the world find their BLISS. Our clients have overcome everything from autism to debt, from cancer to personal & professional relationship slumps — and so much more.

We have a DREAM to create a New BLISS HEALING MOBILE where we can travel the world and bring our services right to the doorsteps of those who desire. ( if you’ve been following us, you know that our first House on Wheels didn’t make he trip, Bless Her Heart). I can just imagine finally hugging in-person some of the lovelies who I’m BLESSED to work with from a distance every day! It’s already happening! And we just want more. Bliss is addictive like that.

So, we decided to go ahead with our tour even before the new House on Wheels comes into fruition! Why wait? We’re going Eco-Style — which means we’ll be taking public and mass transit whenever possible. We’ve got our bus passes and our plan to Be the Change!

We hope you will come out and see us or even help us host an event in your town!

We begin in Chicago on July 14-15 with some high vibe Reiki Certification Classes, and then we travel east, south and west!

Places that we plan on taking by storm are:
Chicago, Illinois

So, if you live in, around or between these beautiful places and want to arrange a gathering in your space, let us know.

The first round of travel through the US will culminate with a week-long Reiki Retreat (All Level Certifications) in a beautiful energy vortex town called Sayulita, Mexico in late September. This amazing opportunity was gifted to us through a new friend here in Mexico, and we just can’t wait to share it.

Thank You For Your Support. We Believe Your Support Means More Healing for the Planet!

Ascending? What Happens When You Ascend or Don’t Ascend?

20120625-111657.jpg

UPDATE 2014: We continue to experience proof of our ascension, raising awareness of our amazing power as human beings through literally instantly manifesting our needs and desires, witnessing MIRACLES And healing on a grander scale and a profound upgrade of our psychic and extra sensory senses.  Channelings from other dimensions, psychic work, meditation and research leads us to feel that we are all ascending and that we will ascend as one. Those who are feeling like they are not fully shifting, will remain in that frequency and continue in the 3D Reality until they can ascend. In other words, ascension is inevitable. As we move up in consciousness, so do you. Those who remain stuck will use their stuckness to play out the necessary roles and rehabilitate their soul so that they can ascend. You can help your friends and family by becoming aware of your true power. Remembering where you came from is key. Please let us know if you have questions or need help. I still feel the video below shares some potent energy and info to help, although I suggest that you find your truth by looking deeper within yourself.  I talk about the Pleideans in this piece. I have now come to know many groups of benevolent beings, some who you might call extraterrestrial or angelic.  Read on and enjoy! 

About five years ago, Doug and I were walking down a busy Chicago street chatting up our usual back and forth jokes– when we somehow figured out that we both had a similar dream the previous night. It wasn’t doomy gloomy end of the world stuff, but it was a chaotic glimpse at a Change of World. We were both given the message that things were changing drastically and we were going to lose many people who are dear to us. Both of us had the same understanding that this change was for the good.

Much of this dream has come to pass already. We’ve found a dividing line between ourselves and many of the people who were once close to us. Sometimes that line meant physical death. Other times it was simply about needing to let go of something that was karmically over. And of course, we can see the awakening vs. elite power grapple happening on a grand scale all over the planet. Truly our life experiences are a mere microcosm of what’s happening across the planet and even in the galaxy.

We liken that dividing line to a force that keeps us on track to higher consciousness. Or ascension.

Now, we are on the fast track to ascension… Or whatever you call this CHANGE. Our renewed ability to transform that which doesn’t serve us is crazy amazing. Last week, I wrote a piece called “Are You Ascending?” just to express some of the magical channeled messages, manifestation experiences and spirit visits that have occurred for me while living in an energy vortex in Mexico. It’s as if we have become exponentially awakened to other dimensions. With each dream, meditation, or astral travel, we become a bajillion times more aware and ABLE to use and understand the vibrational universe.

Some of my recent channeling experiences came from this group of people who we call the Pleiadians. My psychic experiences are interesting as they simply come naturally, and I learn from them as I go. So, I have far less book knowledge about this of beings than many others out there…. Yet, they showed themselves to me. They are believed, by many, to be one of our ancestor groups, and the (or one of the) chosen group(s) to lead us through this ascension journey.

After seeing them appear in my apartment, I began to ask around about who they might be. While it turns out that my neighbors were quite sure ( because these sightings are very common in that neck of the woods)– the Beings themselves simply told me they are “those who you refer to as the Pleiadians.” They seem to have been simply confirming my interpretation of them in order to move on to more important things, and less concerned with my accuracy in defining them. So, for all I know they were angels. The point is that they were very high vibrational light beings who were there to help me.

Once I get a juicy tidbit of info like this, I go wild with the meditations, the book -study and the research to find and feel all that I can! What I have discovered is that there have been many E.T. interventions in human development. We’re a rather young planet civilization that has been manufactured and influenced by various guides, beings, helpful ancestors and sure — perhaps those with agendas that don’t exactly serve us. But, free-will seems to keep coming up as a constant factor. A gift that we have,  should we really choose to use it for all of it’s goodness.

I’m feeling that this period of Ascension is for we humans (or should I say Earth People) to come into our own power. We’ve been under a veil during a “consciousness training period” that hasn’t allowed us to easily activate our psychic senses.

What do you think? Are we ascending? Are you? Do you feel more aware and connected to something so pure and real that you can’t doubt its authenticity regardless of how different it is?

I found this video especially interesting because after my Pleiadian channeling experience, I dreamed that 2 very tall white beings were helping me manifest my desires. They were patient with me as I focused on what I love. They flooded me with information about what occurs in between the lines of thought and manifestation.

This video talks a bit about how we are guided by Pleiadian beings and how it’s very important to stay focused on what we really want. I would add that we must also ALLOW those rewarding vibrations to enter our lives after we’ve focused on them.

I also LOVE how the vid inspires us to take control of our money and decisions by stopping paying those entities which thrive by holding us down. This can be a challenge for many of us. Each and every time you spend a dollar on something that harms your body or harms our planet, there is the potential to lead you away from consciousness. I say “potential” because there are so many other things to consider, and to be honest — every step your’re taking is leading you toward higher consciousness, but you get to decide how fun that journey will be for you.

I take control of my money by using it for good — for healing foods, for education, for supporting conscious business and helping organizations that promote green living, earth-healing, awareness of our collective power and purpose, and of course– to make people happy. Money has the power to buy you things that  make you happy and help encourage consciousness. But it is still of a lower vibration. We won’t always need it. It is time to transmute that which we see in the shadows, to see its value and to raise it up. For now, money is in our reality and we are forced to work on it together. I heard a Mayan Elder say that we will know if we have ascended if we wake up not needing money. (Of course, money isn’t the ONLY means of “buying” these things… But it is one energy you can take control of now).

Doug and I did some healing work on our bills and money… really we have been doing so for years, and have been able to drop many bills –and even be released from unjust payments. There is universal support for you if you choose to do this.

I did a Reiki Healing Attunement on all of my bills and credit report in 2011 and surprisingly, my credit was wiped clean. All i did was energy work on it.

Reiki Healing Attunements: 

A Reiki Healing Attunement is an energetic quantum leap to your best self. Healing attunements help you remove blocks (mental, emotional, spiritual, physical) so that you can see your path much clearer. This is great if you have a specific problem that you feel is blocking your growth. Healing attunements can also be used to kick-start a specific goal, or release undesirable life patterns. The Reiki energy connects directly with your higher self during a healing attunement.

So, what happens when we do or don’t ascend? Check this out, and tell me what you think.

Ascension Symptoms: Is this Spiritual Awakening Happening to You?

The Whole Multiverse Has Gone Conscious

2014 Update: As Time and Space continue to squish together more rapidly and completely than ever before, I am seeing more evidence that we are succeeding in the uplifting of our planet/consciousness. During this time, many of us who wish to hit those higher realms of consciousness and thought often get sucked into (for whatever reason) leaving our bodies.. Perhaps we do this in dreams, energy work, meditation or astral travel. I’m noticing a trend amongst “LightWorkers” to deny their precious bodies and the importance of our avatars. If you receive any help from this article, please understand that it is very important to take exquisite care of your body as you move into higher spiritual knowing. Part of this ascension process is to fully respect, honor and understand our bodies. As Above So below, As Within So Without. We tend to want to ditch the body care when the going gets tough on the physical plane. Especially when we can see the other side of things. Many of my clients and friends are suffering from reoccurrences of old illnesses, serious body pain and challenges that demand attention. So, are you ascending? Yes, we all are. Which means we are being opened up to the deepest understanding of our own power, where we came from (the stars) and how to get back to ONENESS. We have always been ascending. We are just now closer than we’ve ever been and we’ve got more support than we’ve ever had.    Read more
