Strange Days Indeed

“All you really need to do is accept this moment fully. You are then at ease in the here and now with yourself.”~ Eckart Tolle

A good friend of mine contacted me asking, “Is the energy on the planet really weird right now?”I paused for a moment before answering her. “The energy is weird all the time these days,” I replied.

It seems I’m being asked questions like this more and more these days. It’s pretty obvious to me that we are living through some incredibly strange times.There is definitely something going on.

Thinking back when I was a teenager I became intrigued with the prophecies written in the Book of Revelations. As I read the unfolding events, beginning with war, famine, earthquakes, floods, disease and all kinds of erratic behavior I felt a fire and an urgency coming from somewhere deep inside of me. The prophecies somehow resonated and it felt like my soul was remembering something but I couldn’t put my finger on it. Although I didn’t know how at the time, I knew that the days predicted in Revelations would somehow be my future. And as I look around at what’s going on in the world today I believe I was more on point than I could have ever imagined.

As we move towards an uncertain future I feel it’s imperative that we find a way to come back to our center. I don’t mean next month or when you go on a vacation or sometime in the future, I mean right now.

I can still hear the words of my teacher, Papa Joe, when he told me, “It is time for these destructive energies that have been creating havoc and controlling us for ages to leave the planet but they don’t want to go and will use every trick in the book to stay in control.”

Hearing this years ago hasn’t made my life any easier but what I was taught was that when I get quiet and find that place of neutrality in me, I can feel a sense of ease and comfort. I realize there is no person or place out there that can give me the security or peace of mind that I can only find from deep within. When I am connected to my power and stay present, through conscious breath, I have a much better chance at maintaining balance and equilibrium in my life.

We always need to be careful of who, what and where your mind engages and have discernment in who you let into your energy field. Pay attention to your body and if you feel uneasy, listen to that. This is not a time to go back to sleep.

Everyone Needs a Reset

reset

I’m a bit of a neat freak. I can’t help it. I must confess I am so sensitive to energy that I insist on having a clean home. That’s why it was completely out of character for me to hire Maria, a cleaning lady to come over. But I’m so glad that I did. Let me be the first to say there is nothing like having someone move furniture and get behind all those little nooks and crannies that are hard to reach. When everything was said and done and put back in its place, I can’t even begin to explain the difference in my mood. I felt so much lighter with a deep sense of contentment within. As far as I’m concerned it was money well spent.

It got me thinking, ‘Wow, this is kind of what I do when I work on someone.’ I start by moving through the layers of stuff that has settled in a person’s mind, body or spirit. Afterward the client tells me they feel amazing yet, they find it hard to explain why.

When people ask me what I do, I tell them I start by moving the energy upwards through the different points in their feet. This energy moves through accumulated ‘stuff’ known as blockages that can be stored or held inside the body. It can be fear, repressed emotions, entities or negative energies that need to be cleared out.

For some reason, I am able to see these energies that many people are unaware that they have. Over time, they have become so accustomed to living with it they don’t even realize they have collected numerous energies in their daily lives.

When I think about it it’s a bit like Maria coming to my home with a new and different perspective. She may see a little dust pile that I haven’t been paying attention to or perhaps she moves things around just enough that gives me a new and refreshing point of view.

I have been doing energy healing on clients for years and as I sit here in my clean home I’m so inspired to write this story. I have come to the conclusion that everything needs to be reset so we can have a new point of view. We do it with our cars, computers or by taking vacations. So, I feel it’s important to get help from others in order to clear what we don’t see and what no longer serves us.

The Importance of Being Grounded

Grounded: Mentally and emotionally stable: admirably sensible, realistic, and unpretentious. remains grounded despite praise or attention

grounded

Recently I was working with a client, who asked, “How I can I protect myself from negative energies?”

This is one of the most common questions people ask me. I replied like I normally do, “Ground yourself.” She responded with, “Well, How do I do that?” At that point I realized I was being vague and needed to be more specific.
So I looked up the meaning of ‘grounded’ in the Webster’s Dictionary.

With all my years of training the dictionary didn’t seem to do the word justice.
As I’ve learned from my personal experience until you can practice being grounded , it’s just a word.

Looking back at a healing with my teacher, Papa Joe, I remember several people swarmed around him after he had done an exorcism on a woman. Everyone was silent with a humble energetic awe. To witness something so profound changes you forever. So naturally, we were curious to what just took place and started asking Papa Joe questions.

“What was that?” Someone asked. “How did that woman get that energy on her?” “Can that happen to us?” “Is there any way we can protect ourselves from these negative energies?”

He was silent. Then Papa Joe took a long deep breath. “Staying grounded is your best protection.” He further elaborated with, “Stay present in your bodies so negative energies are less likely to enter.”

This rang true for me. I had spent most of my younger years out of my body. I was raised with zero self esteem. Fear ruled my life and I was not grounded at all. I had to learn how to come into my body.

So with my work today I help people address their trauma so they can come back to their bodies and release stored fear.

These are the essentials for grounding:
Spending time in nature
Conscious breathing
Exercise daily
Healthy boundaries with others
Body work
Daily meditation
Mindful living
“In a world, a city, a town, where people claim to be ‘a healer’ no one is more true, more studied, more genuine and powerful than this woman. From a sprained ankle to a heartbreak to a child suffering from ADD her hands on healing and intuitive capabilities will blow you away. You walk in one person and leave another, filled with peace, clarity and a real sense of renewal” ~Dina

A Story of Healing

A few months ago, a client wrote an amazing article for the Huffington Post. It was about her healing experience with me. I was moved to see how such a skeptic could change her point of view and wanted to … Continue reading

“Magic, Miracle, Blessing, Grace”

It has been a year since I wrote my last blog. Recently a client asked if he could create  a video for me in exchange for a session. He asked what I would like to talk about. I did not have a clue what I wanted to say. During the filming he and his girlfriend asked several questions about what I do and my responses surprised me. I had received so much wisdom from my teacher, and I wanted to share this knowledge with my next blog post.

I couldn’t help but think of a time years back when I was a mere pup and was on my extreme spiritual quest. I was lucky to cross paths and work with many powerful teachers, shamans, kahunas and profound healers. However, I was naive and did not understand the spiritual world. I certainly did not know who I was, and hence constantly being attacked by entities and feeling extremely out of sorts. I would think, “Why is this happening to me?” I asked these shamans and healers, but none would give me a straight answer. I became very isolated to the point of feeling suicidal. I had this strange deathly feeling coming from inside of me. Now I need to let you know that I was sick for weeks to the point of feeling I was actually going to die. One day I woke up and realized I had to clear this immediately. I sat like a thunder bolt and stated my intention/prayer to whatever guide or angel would listen. I shouted out, “Please help clear this energy from me now!” I sat with such a force and began to breathe as if were my last breath. Then it was if a hand reached into me and pulled the dark gremlin out of me. As it was leaving my body, it felt miles long. My mind somehow knew that this was energy clearing out from me. What I could not quite grasp was it felt very familiar. When I mentioned it to my teacher, Papa Joe, he pointed out that I was beginning to remember. This was what I had done for lifetimes, which began my new journey as a healer.

Since then several people have asked me, “Can you teach me the healing work that you do?” The answer is I can help awaken what is already inside you.

It has come to my awareness that many like myself are searching for answers. They are looking for purpose and meaning in their lives. Nothing can bring you to yourself but your own quest for spiritual truth and a deep desire to break free.

Going Within

In this critical time return to a spiritual way of life, that is the way you will make it through” ~ Chief Arvol Looking Horse

silence

I read this quote by Chief Arvol and thought to myself “yes, this is the way”. The words hit me profoundly. Some people may be feeling the chaos happening on the planet right now. I know I am. Disease, war, drastic weather changes, and extreme financial insecurity is scary and driving people into more fear.

In my last blog, I talked about slaying your dragons. Fear is one of those dragons. So how does one deal with fear especially in these times of enormous turmoil? Where is safe? What is the truth? What is gonna happen to us or the planet in ten, twenty, thirty years from now? Think about it; we all know the shit is hitting the fan!

Going within is the only way we will know peace. Do you know what this means? Pulling your attention from the outside world and paying attention to your inner world. Your soul, spirit, intuition, and integrity. Your place of knowing. This is what was meant by a spiritual way of life.

When people come to me for spiritual advice or healing, the question is always the same. “How do I listen to my intuition”? The truth is we all know how to listen to our intuition, but just get a little sidetracked from our intuitive voice. The ego’s voice is much louder and has hooks to it. The constant programming being fed to us on a daily basis makes the ego very active. It says we need more, more, more! Come on, how ridiculous is this world of consumerism we live in? How far from nature do we need to go?

So what is being said here might seem like a “nice concept” for a few of those spiritual types out there, but we all need to begin to do this. We need to start making time each day for silence and going within. Taking time in nature, yoga, meditating , and walking. Anything that helps you get PRESENT. That means getting out of your constant mind chatter. Let’s all wake up out of our mind-controlled comas and be here now. So, how do we do this? The answer is you must learn to breathe. When we breathe consciously, it pulls our awareness away from the mind’s control. You do not need to be a master yogi to do this. Even if it’s five minutes a day, you are “doing it”. So just begin to DO IT!

Do I sound bossy or like I am on a soap box? If I do, it’s because this works. There is a war going on and it is inside of us. Never mind changing the world out there. Change yourself first, then you will have something to say. It’s time to slay those dragons. Breathe through those fears and stop letting them control you. Take back your focus and stand present in yourself now.

The indigenous people have the wisdom. What they have been telling us for years is very important now. Start your own personal path. Enter the place within yourself. All this takes is the choice to do so.

Spiritual Healing

Spir-it-u-al

1.) pertaining/relating to the spirit or soul,as distinguished from physical nature

shari spiritual

Heal-ing

1.) to make sound or whole

2.) to restore to original purity or integrity

I would like to start writing/blogging about some common questions people ask me about my work and healing in general. My goal is to communicate and take away some mystery around healing, and hopefully present it in a practical no-nonsense kind of a way. So it can reach people and help us to let go of all the fluff that goes with healing! Practical common sense would be the approach! So fingers crossed, here I go.

The reason I chose to use the dictionary definition to start this post is because how simple and practical is the idea now once the woo woo is removed so the true message can come through.

Spiritual Healing is a common reason why people come to me. I noticed once the person is helped through their own labyrinth with really focused energy the common thread is usually there. We feel alone. Whatever the person is presently challenged with feels too big which creates fear. A held space with a genuine heart and prayer (focused intention) creates a calling out with our words and begins a ripple or current of energy.

In other words: attention. Turning your attention towards the solution. Becoming present …… Now in that moment is where the magic miracle takes place. Ask simply, ask.

There is a whole energy world out there. How do I know that is another subject. But I do know there are so many unseen helpers, angels and guides. The spiritual healing happens when we re-connect back to our spirit and there are helpers waiting to be recognized so they can do their jobs. As a facilitator, watching people at this moment is awe-inspiring, goose bumps down the arms, the soul comes back to knowing, and the feeling of being lost vanishes. It may only be for a few seconds but the spiritual healing took place and the light comes through….I am grateful to have been a part of this process with so many people, including myself.

Wishing you a beautiful day. May you all reconnect back to your spirit/soul……….

To those of you that were there last night, thank you for all your support in coming to my first workshop, it was an amazing evening. I was pleasantly surprised to see so much light in all your eyes as you left. I am open to feedback on subjects you would like me to address in blogging or in  future workshops. (to be announced soon)

“Shari has guided me to let go of the “story” and to live in the present moment. When we first met, I was a bundle of anxiety and worry, and I suffered pain everywhere in my body. I didn’t sleep well, and I was constantly judging everything that I did and said. Through our sessions, I am beginning to enjoy my life in a different way, and as Shari is helping me to release stress, pain, and anguish from my life, I am becoming a more relaxed person.  I am very grateful for the lessons that I am learning through my experiences with Shari. Each time is different. Each time I release. Each time is an unforgettable experience.”
