Soul loss, Soul Reintegration
Contemporary psychology calls this 'dissociation'. Due to years of direct experience I have become strong in this area & am always willing to assist others to find themselves and reintegrate the parts of their Soul which have fled due to situations such as those mentioned above...further info to come.
What is Ma'at Sekhem & Energy Healing?
Also known as 'spiritual healing' my form of energetic treatment requires no particular belief on the part of the client, just a wish to receive help and a willingness to relax. The word 'healing' actually refers to becoming 'whole' or 'balanced', both physically and emotionally/mentally, hence the term 'holistic'. These therapies can help re-energise and rebalance a stressed out and depleted mind and body. Energy therapies and other forms of therapy can also assist in our journey towards this constantly unfolding or changing goal. Further explanation on the science behind this below.
Energy work can be understood as a way of recharging your batteries. If you are undergoing treatment or awaiting surgery it can assist in helping to create a more relaxed and positive state and so help to promote the most positive outcome. It assists in reconnecting us to our true selves and in some cases just one or two sessions is enough to help a person move forward in their health and/or self-development. As one who has benefitted from receiving energy (& other) treatments myself I very much encourage self-help such as part of a healthy lifestyle. All meditative activities are highly beneficial, including gardening, walking, cooking and guided meditations on Youtube, etc. Above all I recommend trying whatever you feel is interesting or right for you and not pressurising yourself to be who others think you should. The point is to unveil your Authentic Self, raise Awareness & ultimately move forward in your life.
In ancient Kemet, the native name for Egypt, there were seven main principles or virtues of the Goddess Ma'at. By following these principles we can evolve or integrate with our Essence or Higher/Soul Self. These principles are Truth, Justice, Balance, Order, Compassion, Harmony, and Reciprocity. Ma'at is an ancient Goddess of Truth, Balance & Justice, Sekhem is a form of Ancient Egyptian energy healing/therapy. 'Sekhem' can be understood as 'power' or 'power of the Light' so the overall meaning may be understood as 'the Power of Truth', meaning the Truth of Higher level Consciousness that is accessed by going within yourself.
This form of therapy or healing is concerned with the uncovering of your authentic self, with helping you live your truth. Healing means to be made whole, hence the term 'holistic' which refers to the assisting of the whole human system. By assisting you with emotional issues we may also help to relieve physical complaints as these all have an emotional component.
The entire Egyptian pantheon are also some of the assistants we are working with, not only Sekhmet, the lioness. However, our current form of this work is beyond Sekhem/Seichem/Reiki - it incorporates these energy streams but also integrates many other streams or currents such as Kwan Yin (bodhisattva of compassion), our Atlantian Ancestors, the wisdom of Native American/Canadian/Celtic Ancestors, as well as other Shamanic streams. The mission here is to work with the fullest of integration of all Wisdom Strands. This is occurring because Humanity is now able to begin to receive Higher Level healing. Every stage has come to us at precisely the right Time.
Overview of a typical healing session
I often employ sound during a session, in the form of toning and a little chanting, like Tibetan Singing Bowls, this is because the body and mind respond to vibration. I particular sound or vibration helps release trauma and emotional pain which in turn can lessen physical pain. Consider how your favourite music helps you to relax, for instance. When new to energy healing many people find sessions easier to relax into when music is played - it is entirely up to you. Nature sound recordings are particularly beneficial, such as bird song, rain, the ocean, especially as we living quite apart from Nature in areas such as mine (London).
In order to benefit a client simply needs to close their eyes and relax, fully clothed with shoes and watches, mobile phones, etc, removed. It may be conducted either lying or sitting as preferred. After some initial discussion of issues/feelings/health complaints I often begin a session with Indian head massage for the first 20-30 mins followed by a 30 min (approx) stage with the person lying/reclining, facing upwards. This may start at the feet working up through the energy centres and other areas in need of 'clearing/charging' or may begin from the crown/forehead and end at the feet. The exact style varies according to the individual and their needs at the time. Every session is a little different.
Crystals may be employed at certain stages of the session. These act rather like copper wire - they are useful conductors or energy and also absorb some negative energies so with permission I may lay one or two on the body for a time and remove them later.
Guides are always present. If you are aware of these energies you may find you feel/see some who are close to you also. If you are in need of reassurance this may come from relatives who are now in the realms of the non-physical, and so forth.
For those who are not yet open to those energies or frequencies, the effects tend to be feelings of calm, relief, relaxation and an improved sleep later. Again, this all depends on what you need at the time. If you have a lot of emotional pain to release this may be triggered - but not necessarily right away. The effects may last on average for up to three days and if you able to take responsibility for your own 'healing' then you can maximise the benefits by listening to your own needs, focusing on calm breathing, meditation, exercise and any other self-help strategy. Sometimes of course emotional pain leaves us unable to focus on these areas - just be gentle with yourself & trust that changes will occur at the pace which you are ready for. It is best to have time to relax after a session as you may feel light-headed or 'spaced out' for a while afterwards. The full effects may be felt for a few days after treatment.
It's been a roller coaster if a life so far, with a lot of health issues that have delayed many areas in my life but that have ultimately aided the creation of the experienced therapist I now am. I have myself benefitted greatly from this type of therapy as well as a form of talking therapy based upon the work of Carl Jung, 'psychodynamic counselling'. I was about 12 when I a had a sense or knowing that there was something I could do through the hands to soothe others, including animals, in emotional pain.
My initial training came during my time as a patient at a London-based holistic centre where I was then taken on as a trainee (2007 - 2009). My teacher, Dr N Khazal pHd had trained with the Snowlion school in France and encouraged what he saw as my inate ability along with my manager who furnished me with the invaluable text book, 'Hands of Light' by Barbara Ann Brennan. During 2009 I asked internally what name I could use for the form of healing I was learning or developing. The words 'Ma'at Sekhem' immediately came to mind, a phrase I'd never heard, but one which I subsequently came across a little later in printed literature. I asked for a translation which was roughly 'Power of Truth, Light and Love'. This energy heals on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels, with a focus on the heart centre. It is similar to the more widely known Reiki.
The Science & Brief History behind Energy Healing
Many of us speak in terms of energy without even realising it. We commonly describe ourselves or others as feeling 'low in energy', of being 'rundown' or of feeling or looking 'drained'. We often realise it is a low state that has preceded a cold or other unwanted illness, or 'dis-ease': all illnesses can be related to various states of feeling ill at ease within ourselves, but more of that later.
Our energy levels go up and down, we are all aware of this. The flow of energy can become blocked or out of balance due to negative experiences or feelings, traumas and lifestyle, for example, long-term shift work is scientifically known to have adverse affects on overall health. These imbalances can manifest as physical health issues (dis-ease) if left unchecked. Alternative therapies such as energy therapy and massage can assist in your efforts to improve your well being or general lifestyle or to help prepare for surgery/to enhance post-operative healing. Since we can become drained of energy we can also be refilled or recharged.
We tend to accept that we need to take energising foods, drinks and adequate rest to help heal ourselves, and in order to function at all. Our bodies assimilate the energy from foods and drinks and our bodies can be influenced to heal themselves with adequate rest and appropriate attention. Whenever we breathe, ingest food or interact with each other we are taking in energy, converting it into usable forms and expelling it again. In this way we can understand Life as an energetic cycle, of which we each form a significant part.
There is much written about the existence of the Human Energy Field in historic and religious texts/traditions such as the Hindu Vedas, the Kabbalah, and those of the Native American Medicine People, Japanese Zen Buddhists, and Rudolph Steiner, to name but a few. In the West, since the 19th century, many researchers have looked for ways to objectively prove what was usually only observable by clairvoyants or masters of meditative disciplines such as Qigong and Yoga. More recently, in the 1980s, at the Shanghai Atomic Nuclear Institute of Academia Sinica, it was found "that some vital-force emanations from Qigong masters seem to have a very low frequency sound wave that appears as a low-frequency fluctuating carrier wave. In some cases, Qi (energy) was also detected as a microparticle flow. The size of these particles was about 60 microns in diameter and they had a velocity of about 20-50cm/second (or 8-20 inches/second)." [p. 33 Barbara Ann Brennan, 1988).
During this same decade scientists at the Russian Bioinformation Institute of A.S Popow concluded that "living organisms emit energy vibrations at a frequency between 300 and 2000 nanometers." We can think of ourselves as being like radio transmitters as well as receivers. Have you ever thought of someone only to have them contact you a little while later? This is a form of energy exchange between the Human Energy Fields of two people. The Russian scientists gave this measurable phenomena the name 'biofield' or 'bioplasma'. These results were confirmed at the Medical Sciences Academy in Moscow and also by research in the U.K, Germany, the Netherlands and Poland. It has also been regularly noted that the stronger a person's biofield the better their health.
In 'A study of Structural Neuromuscular Energy Field and Emotional Responses' Dr Valerie Hunt and others at UCLA recorded the frequency of millivoltage signals from the body during a series of energetic sessions (a form known a 'rolfing') - using elementary electrodes of silver and silver chloride placed upon the skin of participants. The findings from the electrodes were compared to the observations made by Rev. Rosalyn Bruyere of the Healing Light Centre, Glendale, California. Dr Hunt and her team then mathematically analysed the wave patterns recorded by a Fouvier analysis and a sonogram frequency analysis. The observations of Rev. Bruyere correlated directly with the wave forms and frequencies. The experiment was repeated was repeated with seven other aura readers. Again they witnessed auric emanations and colours that correlated with the wave patterns and frequencies. (See table of results below.)
Dr Hunt concluded: "throughout the centuries in which sensitives have seen and described the auric emissions (biofields), this is the first objective electronic evidence of frequency, amplitude and time, which validates their subjective observation of colour discharge". Dr. Hunt also stated that the chakras (Sanskrit name meaning ‘wheel’ referring to the body’s main energy centres) did frequently carry the colours described in metaphysical literature - below is a general guide or starting point:
Forehead/Brow/3rd Eye: Violet,
Crown/top of head: White
“The body can be viewed from a quantum concept of energy stemming from the atomic cellular nature of the functioning body, which cuts across all tissues and systems.” [Dr Hunt, p.35, B.A Brennan, 1988)
These colours are not as fixed as it may appear; there are many tints or hues that are involved, and also many tones/sounds that relate to each colour. In my experience, there is an additional significant chakra in between the heart and throat, a turquoise, directly relating to the thymus and thus influencing the immunity.
