Let me share with you a secret about healing, which is what Healcyon is all about. On my path to discover the best techniques and traditions for healing pain that comes with the human experienced, I came across the ultimate healer. This healer has the wisdom of a hundred thousand lifetimes, and can tap into dimensions beyond rational understanding for the intelligence and energies appropriate for healing work.
You may already have guessed it, but it’s the human body! The human body has an incredible potential to regenerate its cells and recover from damage. This is the underlying wisdom of learning a Mind-Body Art like Yoga or Qi Gong-a practice to allow the body the time and space to recover and heal itself.
This may be a strange introduction to Healcyon’s healing services-after all, why would you need a therapist of any kind if you have all your healing within? Well while the body is the greatest healer, I also need to mention what can be its best friend or its greatest enemy:
The mind has a powerful ability (and a puzzling one, a mystery not yet solved!) to block our growth and healing process. We as humans can and do get stuck in certain thought processes, behaviors, and poor movement patterns. Perhaps these are necessary for a time to recover from and insulate us from further pain. Yet often we continue this stuckness long past its expiration date.
My own story of healing illustrates this concept: I was in chronic pain for two years after breaking both wrists in a motorcycle crash. Physical Therapy had been completed and I was told that this was the best it would get, and so my mind got stuck in that belief. It was not until entering massage school when a teacher casually mentioned that it could get better-and then worked on it and reconnected my body’s truth to update my mind- that I actually became pain free. This liberating experience moves me to why healers are useful in this process. Most “healers” have moved on to call themselves:
To pay respect to the fact that the body and spirit are repairing the body while they are present to help this process along and get the mind unstuck. I prefer to use the term Healing Arts Professional because I believe there is indeed an art to facilitating this process and that each mind needs a unique key to unlock its potential. Touch is a medium through which a whole range of emotional, energetic, and kinesthetic information can be transferred-and facilitators use this medium to communicate and help the mind let go. Catalyst of healing is another word often used because of the “igniting” or “re-awakening” of the body’s self-healing capacity that occurs during sessions.
This service is for those who may feel overwhelmed by the endless choices of modalities in healing, or feeling simply lost in life in general. Tarot/I-Ching/Oracle cards are used for an intuitive reading to get you back on track. These tools are ways of simply uncovering what is unconscious in a situation, or angles you have not yet perceived. Guidance in this way provides a fresher and more complete outlook of whatever decision or challenge you may be facing at this time. My training in Intuitive readings has been under sporadic guidance by expert reader Phillip Young, as well as over six years of practice and work with various divination tools.
^Recommended as an Introduction to Healcyon, or those who have established practices and facilitators they work with but no longer feel they are getting what they need.
As a Shamanic Practitioner I have received training in journeying to the Spirit World in order to receive guidance, power, missing soul fragments, healing, and wisdom that I return to share with the client. These healing sessions are facilitated with the care and protection of guardian spirits (angels to some), so that the highest outcome of our time together manifests. I recommend Shamanic work for any disturbance in the soul, lack of feeling like one’s self, dis-empowerment, or as a way to seek help with a physical condition that has not responded to conventional treatment plans. The traditions I have been trained to work with are the Q’ero of the Andes, the Lakota, and the Apache. All this comes together under the principles of Core Shamanism.
Astrology Chart Reading
Western- Tropical Astrology
I have found Western Astrology to be quite profound in “understanding why we do the things we do.” Tropical Astrology is based on a division of the year according to the Solar Cycle, rather than the specific location of the stars themselves. A Chart reading is not done “completely”, and is best done as a gradual process over years. I have found entire chart readings overwhelming and unhelpful, with information overload abounds. Simply taking the next step, i.e. from Sun sign to Sun+Moon sign, is much more profound.
This makes it an ideal modality to interweave with healing sessions of bodywork and hands-on healing, as it helps us uncover and integrate misunderstood parts of ourselves.
Eastern- BaZi Astrology
Literally “8 Characters,” Eastern Astrology focuses on the different cosmic energies present during each day, month, year, and hour as organized by the 5 Element theory of Chinese thought. 8 Characters means that there are 8 core components to your birth chart, far more than the “Animal” we normally think of which is related to the year. I have found Eastern readings to be extremely helpful at our balancing and understand various aspects of our lives: Wealth, Friends, Support, Output, and Influence. In contrast to Western Astrology, it is less about our personality and more useful for knowing how to take action in accordance with the “Flow” of heaven energy at any given time.
