Welcome to The Zen Wave Blog!





I have created this blog with the intention of exposing you to several mindfulness techniques that will help reduce some of your daily stress. From easy to follow meditations, positive affirmations, informational content, relaxing music, and much more... This is your virtual zen space!

I have dedicated my career helping children, adolescents, and adults find the healing they need to live a well-balanced life. Not only have I seen my client's lives improve but I have also experienced this transformation myself. By being exposed and integrating diverse mindfulness techniques I have chosen the path of working on my balance; work on my zen. Most importantly my intention is to share these techniques with everyone who crosses my path. 

Now take a deep breath by inhaling through your nose, expand your stomach, and your lungs as you inhale... Now exhale slowly through your mouth focusing on your breath... now repeat this process two more times... and have a zen day!

New year, new vibes!

The beginning of a new year is a great way to start fresh and tackle new life goals!

By Cristina Barcelo, Energy Healer
Every year we set new resolutions but we seem to have difficulties completing them. Moreover, we feel incomplete or disappointed in ourselves for not reaching our expectations. Begin the year with new vibes by changing the complicated resolutions to three simple practices. It consists on taking each day as it comes, write daily to-do lists, and practice positive thinking. Combing these steps will help you to reduce anxieties of future stuff that might or might not happen, organize your life, and maintain a positive spirit at all times.
Having bills, engagements, and daily issues to deal with may put us in a place where we overanalyze or over-worry about situations. The more we worry, the more drained we may feel. Additionally, it makes us more vulnerable to negative energy to enter our path. We can reduce the chances of getting anxious for future stuff by remaining as p…

Improve your mood by feeding your soul

by Cristina Barcelo, Energy Healer


Our mood is constantly guided by our mental and emotional wellbeing. If we feel stressed, sad, anxious, or worried chances are that it will be affected. Not only does our mental/emotional aspect of the body may be impacted but also our physical body may feel the weight of our mood. For example, when we feel down or sad, many times we get physically tired or fatigued. It is also influenced by the environment we live in. If you live in constant tension and never release it you might be in a constant "bad" mood. Lastly, but not limited to, our mood may get triggered negatively whenever a stressful unresolved event happens to us. Whenever a bad memory gets triggered, or when we remember a piece or the entire stressful event our mood tends to merge its state from how we felt then with how we feel now. 
There are people who are able to have a better grasp of their mood, such as, being able to stay content no matter how many obstacles were encounter…

What is a Reiki Healing Circle?

by Cristina Barcelo, Energy Healer

A Reiki Healing Circle is a gathering of people, preferably in the shape of a circle with the intention of healing. The circle represents life’s continuation, with no beginning and no end. Each healing circle is uniquely created based upon the intentions and goals of the group. When you participate in a Reiki Healing Circle you receive universal energy to help release energetic blockages caused by stress and traumas and to bring balance to your body. By participating in this practice as a group, the energetic force tends to be more powerful as bigger amounts of energy are being released and transformed into love and light. 

What to expect? When you go to a circle you may be required to sit or lay on the floor so it is always good to be dressed comfortably. They usually last from one hour to one hour and a half if there is a big group. Many times the practitioner utilizes different meditation styles to help induce clients into a meditative state which ai…
