What Is Intuition?

I talk/write quite a bit about listening to your intuition. It occurred to me that I don’t think I’ve ever really explained what I believe intuition is. One definition of intuition is “a thing that one knows or considers likely from instinctive feeling rather than conscious reasoning.” It’s a deeper knowing than conscious thought. Sometimes…

Ten Out of Ten Guides Agree…

Not that I’ve polled guides. That would be a lot of work, especially since I generally only talk to my own. Lately, I’ve read a few books that either are channeled material or include some channeling along with what was written by the human author. One thing that has struck me is how many times…

When I Learned Channeling…

In 2006, my close friend and mentor, who had been teaching me energy healing, started teaching me about channeling. I’d never heard of it before, and I didn’t really know what to expect when my friend offered me a channeling session with his guide. For starters, I didn’t know what a “guide” was, so I…

New Look!

I’m excited to show off the website’s new look! I’ve spent a good bit of time trying to feel out why the site as it was didn’t quite work for me, and over the weekend I finally dove headfirst into my intuition and redid things in a way that feels more authentic and more… er…words……

Heal In Your Own Time

Last week, I wrote about how trauma is an individualized thing. No two people have exactly the same experiences, and no two people will respond or react to similar experiences in the same way. Just as how one reacts to trauma and whether one is traumatized by an experience is individual, so is the healing…

Continuing Changes

As I wrote last week, I recently gave myself the gift of spending some time away. Although this was mostly to give myself space for my ongoing healing journey, I also did some work on RiverEvolutions while I was gone. I’ve blogged a couple of times in the past month or so about changes that…

Give Yourself Space

When you’re on a journey to heal from past trauma, sometimes your present environment interferes. Maybe you feel uncomfortable in your home because of the noise around you, or you live with someone who doesn’t respect or doesn’t understand your need for boundaries and privacy. Maybe something in your current environment reminds you of your…

Why Change?

In last week’s post, I discussed some changes and additions I’m planning for RiverEvolutions over the coming year. But why do I feel the need to change things? There are several reasons. First, and maybe logically given the type of business I’m in, I operate partly by intuition. What feels right for me? What do…

A RiverEvolutions Healing Session

People have asked me what an energy healing session with me is like. I practice a form of energy healing called Chios. This modality includes techniques for repairing, clearing, and restoring the chakras and energy field. Sometimes this brings up incidents or impressions from the past that the client has buried or forgotten, and that…

Why I Learned Chios

Chios is a form of energy healing that includes specific techniques for balancing the chakras, clearing the energy field, and repairing energetic damage caused by past physical and emotional experiences. In 2005, I was in an abusive marriage and was beginning to uncover memories of traumatic experiences I’d had as a child. Trying to navigate…
