Oh, my gosh, everything, and I do mean everything, hurts. Even my eyeballs. And my feet hurt so much this morning I could barely walk. I’ve never had it feel this bad before…this is…there aren’t even words for this. And my tremors are off the charts at the moment (you should see all the deletes I’m doing as I type this). If I was still working, I would have had to call off because there’s simply no way I would have made it through the day.
The sad thing is, SO many people, especially women, have fibromyalgia and this is a normal day for them. If this is a portent of how things are going to be from now on, can I just curl up in a ball and cry for a while? When my dr. confirmed I had this, she said she wouldn’t wish it on her worst enemy, and as it was fairly low-level for me at the time, I didn’t understand the sentiment as well as I do today.
In other news, I’m returning to a description that I used to use for the healing sessions: Prismatic Healing. Why that name? Because many, many people see colors as they are receiving light, and not just the usual purple or white, but my cousin saw apple green and someone else saw bubblegum pink! In my mind, I see the light flowing into me as gold, sparkly light, and it prisms out of my hands, filling the person with whatever color meets their needs at the time. And so we have Prismatic Healing! I almost chose Prismatic Energy Healing, but an informal Twitter poll chose the former with an almost clean sweep.
June is over, and all sessions except Dare are back to $1.00 a minute, with a 20-minute minimum. I hope you’ll check out the pages about what I do! I look forward to helping you feel better!

I discovered the ability to help others feel better back in 2009, and I’ve heard that line more times than I can count. The reason being either…
1: It’s a gift from God/the Universe/Spirit, so you can’t charge.
2: You can’t guarantee results.
Valid statements, but they miss the crucial point: my (and every other energy worker out there’s) time is valuable. And while, yes, everyone has the ability to help others and it is something innate in all of us, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t pay the one doing the work for you for their time.
The vast majority of people can cook, can write, can dip a paintbrush into paint and swipe it across a canvas; does that mean you shouldn’t pay for your meal at a restaurant, your secretary for taking your phone messages, the artist for the painting they created? Of course not!
As for guarantees; of course we can’t. No one can. Your doctor can’t guarantee results, ever. Every human is different, everyone experiences medications differently (I react quite badly to most of them, even the ones specific to an issue), and not one single doctor will ever say, “I guarantee this will work. Quote me on that.” because that would be foolish and open them up to lawsuits.
I would never promise results because technically I am not doing the work – your soul and the energies of the universe are working together to give you the best boost to your innate healing that you are willing to accept; I’m just the facilitator for that boost. Say what? All that means is that if you really, on a subconscious level, don’t really want to feel better, then no medication or energy work in the world will help you feel better. It just doesn’t work that way.
That still doesn’t mean that your doctor’s time isn’t valuable, or that an energy worker’s isn’t, either. Many of us have health issues of our own, and being able to do this work and make a living at it is what makes it possible to pay our rent and buy groceries when we can’t go out and work for others. I lost my job because of my tremors and fibromyalgia and their resulting problems. I have difficulty typing, which is needed to do the sit-down work I used to do, I don’t have the physical ability to do the retail work anymore, and every single time I step out the front door my tremors kick into third gear, making finding work incredibly difficult, if not impossible. Being able to work from home has saved so many of us!
Most energy workers battle within themselves over whether or not to charge, whether those statement above are right, whether what they do actually has value, and, since the world equates the money you make with your worth, it can start a pretty nasty spiral down into the world of self-esteem and self-worth.
We just need to remember that we are valuable, and so is the service we provide!!
We bring light to the world, and every beacon of light is needed. 🙂
PS: Today and tomorrow are the last days of the 30-minute or less free sessions! After tomorrow, free sessions will disappear forever. Girl’s got bills to pay. 😉
~Ooooh, look, the internet! I can chat with people and learn things and not have to leave my house or speak to anyone! What fun!!!
And then it becomes:
~Who are these people and why am I following them? Why is everything so negative now? Why do I dread getting online now? What happened to the FUN????
The thing about being an introvert is that we, as my mom always tells me, “live in our heads too much”. So while we aren’t actually expending energy attempting to be extroverts out in society, we are still expending energy because every. single. thing. we read gets stuck in our heads.
All of it. The good, the bad, and the ugly.
And the next thing we know, we’re exhausted just by the simple thought of logging in, never mind checking emails, replying to comments, writing blog posts…yeah, curling up in bed with a good book is about all we can handle at that point.
Luckily, I can help. And by helping you, I help me, too. It’s a win-win for everyone! Y’all know I do distance energy work, and almost overwhelmingly the one comment I get most of all is that it helps them calm down, or, as my friend Kellianne wrote when I asked why people come to me for healing work, “Usually pain relief, but it usually helps my soul a bit as well.”
Pretty shiny, right? 🙂
Things are getting crazier and crazier online and in the world, so how’s about instead of suffering in silence, you click here, purchase a session for $1.00 a minute (15 minutes minimum), and let’s get you a bit of peace in your day. Sound good? Let’s do this!
PS: if you want to do some serious chakra-clearing, emotional unblocking, check out my Dare session! And don’t forget to read Amanda’s post about her experience* with it…she tells you about it much better than I can. 🙂
*the name of my website and the links in her post no longer work.
I was just sending healing light to someone, and sitting outside as usual, watching nature. I caught site of a ladybug frantically climbing up and down the weeds that we allow to grow around the birdbath. I thought she was an ant at first because of how she was moving. Then she climbed one stalk and paused in the fern-like thing at the top, but almost immediately turned back around and started her frantic pace again.
She climbed three or four other stalks, then ran back up that particular one that caused her to pause, and she’s been there ever since.
She found her oasis.
The light I was sending was for anxiety and panic attacks, and it just kept running through my mind: find your oasis, find your oasis.
Yesterday I did a favorite distance session for someone in the Norway, and she responded with, “First, I cried, then I felt like I was being aired out, and now I’m so tired I can’t even make myself go to bed, lol.” I smiled for a long time after reading that! 🙂
I love this session because not only does it help people get some rest, but it works on a deep level that plays out over time. You may not connect the changes back to the session, but that’s ok, your Higher Self knows. 🙂
This is what I wrote about it in 2016 when I resurrected it from 2013 (and yes, the pricing is the same):
What a month. Not my favorite March ever, that’s for sure, but far from the worst at the same time. If you’re an astrology buff, then Mercury Retrograde is kicking my ass, and hasn’t stopped. Not an astrology buff? Well, then, this month just bit. It’s as simple as that.
On the good side, things around here have been blooming like mad for a few weeks, and this is one of my favorite spring sights every year:
Yep, that’s my local grocery story. It’s always so pretty in March!!
I’ve had plenty of time to enjoy the seasonal changes, partly due to the social media break, and partly because I’m enjoying (can you sense the sarcasm?) a new fibromyalgia issue: headaches, dizziness, and nausea. Just all of a sudden I woke up with a horrid case of all 3 last Saturday, and every day since has had some degree of them. I did some research, and while the all-over pain is the most common symptom of fibro, these symptoms are pretty much next in line. There’s a way to help alleviate them called Trigger Point Massage (this website is great!) and I’ve been doing the massage, but it’s not quite kicking it, so ugh. Yesterday was a bad day*, so I spent most of it outside in the sun, reading. My hair hasn’t been this short in eons, so I completely didn’t think about my ears; I believe I may have sunburned the tips!
The urge to check Twitter has gone away, but the urge to tweet hasn’t. My head is filled with things like:
“My doctor rocks!”
“Two hawks just flew overhead, and then a raven. And then another raven. #birdwatch”
“Oooh, if you’re in Maryland, check out a new exhibit that my friend Michael is part of! #boostthesignal”
“I took all the apps off my phone, and now I barely touch it. Why do I have a smartphone?”
Random stuff like that. Instead, it swims around in my head until something else catches my attention. It’s kind of weird how the internet has done that to us, isn’t it?
I’ve been reading more blogs (when I do get online), and I’m really enjoying that. I’ve also read 3 books in as many days. 😉
Tomorrow night I’m doing a distance healing session, and yesterday I had an in-person very, very short one (it was for as long as I could stand up without getting dizzy). I’m so happy that I’m still being asked to help others; it really makes my day.
This morning I woke to an email, asking about what I do, how it works, and mentioning that there are so many charlatans out there. She wanted to know, basically, if what I do is real and can I say I can really help.
I wrote a response, and then thought it might actually be a good idea to give you guys the meat of what I wrote, to help answer your questions, too. So here it is:
“Quite simply, I’m a conduit for Divine healing energy/light. The energy/light flows through me, and I can put my hands on someone and it will help them, or I can send it to someone anywhere in the world. Distance makes no difference.
I can not, and will never, promise that I can heal anything, because it doesn’t work that way. As the ‘in-between’ person between you and Spirit/God/whatever you call “It”, what I do facilitates the healing. But how deeply it helps the person is completely between that person and Spirit. We may think, on a conscious level, that we want to be healed of an ailment, but on an unconscious, deeper level, we may be getting something from being sick: attention we wouldn’t have otherwise gotten, disability pay, being able to finally leave that job we hated because we are too sick to work….there’s a lot that goes on between you and Spirit that is beyond my ken, and I would never, ever tell someone I can do more than what I do: work as an instrument of God’s healing, helping you and God to connect in a way that you haven’t, fostering the healing that the two of you decide is best for you.
I will tell you that once a week I send healing light to someone with cerebral palsy in England, and she says it feels like being in a hydro-therapy pool; also, my mother has something akin to Fibromyalgia and when I send to her, it helps her pain and clears her mind. It is not a ‘fix-all’ for either of them, but it does help.”
I DO know that what I do helps, I DO know that you can feel better, I DO know that I’m not one of those amazing “lay on the hands and you are instantly cured” type of healers…I’m just me. Simply Pip. Spirit’s helper. 🙂
ETA: Formatting is being wonky today (Hello, Mercury retrograde’s shadow), so sorry if this is all jumbled together!
In my last post I mentioned I’d write about being a rebel healer, but maybe ‘rebel’ is a bit strong. Not so much a rebel as simply…different.
I’ve talked before about the ways in which I do Prismatic Healing sessions differently than most energy healers: no crystals in the room, I don’t need the person’s true name (or a name at all, actually), no picture is needed, permission is not needed – if it’s not meant to work, it won’t. It’s that easy. I don’t cleanse with salt, meditate ahead of time, need a silent space…none of the things that we’ve come to believe are necessary to help others.
I didn’t start out trying to be a rebel healer, it just kind of happened. I quickly learned that I could do it any where and any time, interruptions and conversation didn’t matter, and the more I help people, the better I not only feel, but I’m pumped up and excited to keep the flow going.
There are some quotes I’d saved along the way from or about other rebel healers, but somehow they’ve gotten lost over time. One was from Judith Orloff’s book Second Sight about either her mom or her grandmother doing energy healing and chatting away with the client, having done the work so long that she knew it would take care of itself (or something along those lines; trying to remember). I find that the more I focus on what I’m doing, the less it seems to help the person. Which, I’ve discovered recently, can be a bit of an issue during in-person sessions in my space because my old “I’m not good enough” mental tape starts running and I worry so much that at times I feel I’ve done a terrible job because I blocked the flow with my stress over doing well. Not good. But if I’m busy, say at work, and I take a few minutes to help a headache or someone’s pain, I’m sufficiently otherwise occupied that the flow is strong and the person is always surprised at how much better they feel in such a short period of time. So I’m a rebel in the way I do best at allowing Spirit to do its work – the less attention, the better. Not normal, right?
In Eric Pearl’s book The Reconnection, there’s a chapter titled “Setting the Tone” that hit so close to home that I literally was yelling to my guy, “This, this!!!” as I read it, most especially the sub-chapter “The Hidden Fear in Our Rituals”, wherein he speaks about the crystals, protection, candles, jewelry, etc, and he finishes it with this lovely little bit:
“Tissue – to dry your tears from either laughing so hard at some of this that you blow out your candles, or from crying when you accidentally kill your flowers by placing them in the salt water you were supposed to shake your hands off into…and the prayers don’t bring them back.” Can you say Rebel Healer? 😉
I went into this not believing that I could make a difference, and so even though I worked in an environment that believes quite fiercely in the ‘rituals’ and ‘musts’ of how to do energetic healing, I just did what felt right and ignored the rest. I mean really, how many healers do you know that sit outside with a teddy bear, chatting to the birds and the neighbors while sending Light 1/2 way around the world?
And it works. Quite well. Sometimes very powerfully, sometimes more subtly, but it always works on some level. Of this I am now certain. So I shall continue to be a rebel healer, doing my own thing even when others still tell me that ‘on some level you are taking stuff in from others and you need to protect yourself from it’. I believe that Spirit knows what it’s doing, and if I needed protection to help others, then why would Spirit make what I do so easy? Wouldn’t there be stumbling blocks to the healing until I learned that I need to do this or do that in order for it to work? Since there aren’t (except those in my own head), I’m quite happy letting Spirit take the lead and leaving all the rest for others.
I know there have to be more rebel healers out there…are you one? In what way? Let’s spread the word! Rebel Healers Unite! 😉
I mentioned on Twitter recently that I’m pretty sure that carpal tunnel is settling into my wrists. I spend a lot of time massaging my guy’s back (chronic pain issues), and working online and it finally all caught up with me a few weeks ago. I’ve taken to wearing an Ace Bandage on my left wrist and one of those hard wrist guards on my right.
The pain isn’t constant, but it’s becoming more noticable and it’s there more often, too. 😦 Interestingly enough, yesterday I did a distance Prismatic Healing session and afterwards neither wrist bothered me until it came time for another massage. I didn’t really notice that fact until later when they were both hurting pretty badly and I was doing some energy healing for him and suddenly it was a lightbulb moment! I was only using my left hand, and the wrist stopped hurting!
So I’m wondering; do you guys notice any pains you have that diminish while you are channeling healing energy?? With the way my wrists feel today, I want nothing more than to send light all day long now! 😉
