Feeling the Love…& the Anxiety & the Depression & the Rage…Or Why Being an Empath Ain’t All it’s Cracked Up to Be

Many of the healers who find EHI and its Energy Healing Training programs cross the threshold in a state of depletion, overwhelm and exhaustion.  Why is that?  Is it exhausting to be a healer and have a healing practice?  Do healers have to give themselves away to support and facilitate transformation in others only to … Read more

Fake it ‘Til You Make It

Yes, really.  I’m not talking about lying, being overly creative with your resume, finagling your taxes or faking important things during romantic moments…um, you know what I mean. I’m talking about energy work.  Subtle energy is, well, subtle.  And when people begin working with chakras, they often report that their initial experience is nondescript, vague, perhaps a … Read more

Is Your Energy Running Or Are You Running Energy?

Week after week clients talk about pace, transitions and time.  The pace discussion sounds like this: “…”  Got that?  Yeah.  It went by too fast for you to quite get it.  Want me to say it again?  “…”  Right.  Crazy-making fast paced living is what we’re all up to.

Clear Your Chakras – Avoid Pitfalls and Pit stops!

Warning:  The statement I’m about to make is a generalization. I like to think of chakras as the energy centers that metabolize life, moment by moment, experience by experience, interaction by interaction.  They’re informed by larger energy constructs such as the aura or electromagnetic field, the energy of the Earth and the Cosmos, by other people’s energy, and … Read more

I’m Working So Hard My Chakras Are Sweating! (or, thoughts about having a regular clearing practice)

What’s it Gonna Be – Resolution or Intention?

Have you made your New Year’s resolutions yet?  How long is your list?  I remember doing a list in my 30’s that had about 17 things on it.  Within a month, I was 0 for 17.  And then I gave up resolutions altogether. Here’s a definition for ‘resolution.’  1. The process of resolving something, such … Read more

My mom used to laugh whenever she told the story of Hummy – my aunt – calling to complain about the amazing weather in Arizona.  In New Jersey it would be snowing, school cancelled, hours of shoveling behind us and more awaiting us – and Hummy would call and say, ‘It’s another damn sunny day … Read more
