General queries

What is healing and how does it work?

All types of healing, whether Reiki, spiritual healing or chakra balancing (or a combination of these) is the channelling of a higher or 'faster' energy through the healer to the client. 

Regardless of which type of healing session takes place, in our experience the healing energy finds its way to where it is most needed in the body. 

Healing focuses on balancing the energies (chakras), which can bring a deep sense of relaxation and wellbeing. Clients' particular areas of concern can be focused on, to aim to bring relief to any physical, mental or emotional issues. Because healing is carried out on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level simultaneously, it can provide wide-ranging healing for body and consciousness.

What will my session be like and how will I know if the healing has worked?

Healing treatments are extremely calming and gentle to experience. Just relax on our professional healing couch. We place some crystals around you (to amplify and cleanse the energy) and gently channel the healing energy from our hands over your body – head, shoulders, waist, arms, and legs. Clients have reported feeling a deep, lasting sense of relaxation and wellbeing, in addition to the relief of conditions they have presented with.

 

As healers, we are simply the channel between the healing energy and the person we are healing for, and while we always endeavour to help our clients, we cannot guarantee or choose any particular outcome - we trust that spirit will always give the recipient what they need, as opposed to what they might believe they want before their session. For the best experience, we advise clients to stay open-minded, to let go of any expectations or preconceptions, and to be as open-hearted as possible.

 

How long should I continue to have healing sessions?

This is entirely up to the individual – we will work with you to find the best possible way forward. It is often beneficial to have a block of sessions and then reassess afterwards. We are all different, and we all process things differently, so it follows that clients' experiences and their time needed to heal can vary. Clients have reported feeling a sense of relaxation and wellbeing, and more uplifted and centred afterwards than they were before their session, as well as reporting relief of conditions they have presented with.

Do you help with terminal or chronic illnesses and severe health problems?

Healing energy aims to bring forward a sense of wellbeing and balance in the body naturally, so it would follow that any imbalance or dis-ease within the body - whether short or long term and of any severity - would benefit.

With any terminal illness, the process of acceptance of life’s journey, which for us all - let’s be honest - is destined to culminate in passing over to the other side, can be helped both by being embraced by the loving healing energy, and by receiving spiritual guidance and wisdom to help to develop a deeper understanding of life’s purpose and its fulfilment.

How should I prepare for a reading or healing session?

Just try and be as relaxed and open-minded as you can – we are a friendly bunch and will put you at your ease and explain everything fully. For your session, and especially for healing sessions, we recommend wearing comfortable clothing and minimal perfumes/aftershaves etc.

For the best experience we recommend trying to let go of any expectations or preconceptions, and to try to be as open-hearted as possible.

You can ask any questions you wish before the session. Our clients have reported feeling more uplifted and centred afterwards than they were before their session.

Why do people consult psychics?

This can be for varying reasons, including advice on work, love and relationships, health and life-choices. We all have our free will, so we have the freedom and choice to choose what our next steps in life will be. However, after receiving a mediumship reading, the wisdom of advice through that spiritual connection with those who love us in the spirit world, and who want the best for us, means it is often then more straightforward for us to know instinctively what the best steps forward should be. This can also apply to oracle card readings, which can be great for life path advice, and tarot card readings, which give a focused psychic reading.

How do readings work?

To give a mediumship reading, the medium will raise their energy to a 'faster' vibration, and the spirits lower theirs to a 'slower' vibration, and the spiritual connection is made half way between the two worlds. The link is made through the energy of pure unconditional love. Our mediums are clairvoyant (clear seeing), clairsentient (clear sensing/feeling) and clairaudient (clear hearing), so will work with a combination of these senses to endeavour to bring through clear messages of love, upliftment and wisdom from spirit loved ones and guides. Oracle cards are divination tools used intuitively by the medium during readings, and can be great for life path advice. Tarot cards give a focused psychic reading (no spirit contact) using pictorial cards which can provide insight into where you currently are in life, with past and future influences.

What sort of messages can I expect in a reading and how specific can a psychic reader be?

With mediumship readings, the messages that come through from spirit are brought through on the energy of love, and are specific to the client, with guidance on relevant pathways in life. Every reading is different – each of us has a different personality, and the personality of the medium connects and blends with that of spirit to give you a unique message. Spirit know what is going on in your life, and the medium strives to bring through evidence in the form of mentioning specific feelings, objects, events or people, in addition to spiritual wisdom and reassurance.

 

As mediums, we are simply the channel between spirit and the person we are reading for, and while we always endeavour to help our clients, we cannot guarantee or choose who or what information comes through - we trust that spirit will always give the recipient the messages they need, as opposed to what they might believe they want before their reading. For the best experience, we advise clients to stay open-minded, to let go of any expectations or preconceptions, and to be as open-hearted as possible.

How can using oracle cards help me?

Oracle Cards are divination tools used intuitively by the medium during the reading. They can be great for life path advice, such as if you're faced with a difficult decision, or if something has changed in your life. Specific cards are intuitively chosen for the client, and we endeavour to bring through detailed spiritual messages of wisdom and guidance that are linked to the meaningful messages of the chosen cards.

Work your Light Oracle Cards - through this deck of beautiful cards, the medium aims to guide you to align with who you truly are. Discover how to make intuitive decisions that align with your true life's purpose, through a picture that's brought together by a mixture of cards.

Tarot Cards are used to give a focused psychic reading (no spirit contact), using pictorial cards. This can provide insight into where you currently are in life, how past influences have got you to where you are, and what future influences may be coming.

How do I join your meditation group?

We run a regular meditation group for like-minded people in our healing therapy room. This is proving very popular and we currently have a waiting list. Simply contact us and we will get back to you.

Can any harm come to me?

You can be assured that we always endeavour to use very strong, positive spiritual protection to guard ourselves, our work and our clients. In our therapy room there is an abundance of crystals on display to support this, and we regularly cleanse the energy in our therapy room using sage and palo santo herbs.

It is important to be aware that just as there are good and bad people in this world, there are good and bad energies too. It is always a sensible idea to visualise a protective bubble around yourself in everyday life to protect you from any negative energies in this world – positive visualisation and manifestation can be very powerful tools.

Do religion and belief matter?

People’s religion or beliefs do not affect the outcome of any healing or reading session they may have with us. Our treatments are given on a pure love-light, instinctive energy that is not related to any specific religion or set of beliefs.
