Letting go ceremony

by Cristina Barcelo, Energy Healer

An exercise to release unwanted energy.

In order to walk a lighter path, it is important to stop and reflect on the things that may be causing a heavy burden in our lives and release them. The Letting go ceremony is an exercise based on intention and visualization about what we want for ourselves. What we want to let go and what we want to attract. 

What you will need for the ceremony:
-an open heart and mind
-2 pieces of paper
-a pen
-a nonflammable bowl
-matches or lighter
-sage or palo santo
-a glass of water
-Add whatever else will help you feel relaxed and centers such as relaxing music, incense, and lighting candles. 

Our energy tends to change and evolve as we move through life and letting go of unwanted energy is a vital process for the energy to grow and transform. Things that have been difficult, heavy, or hard to overcome, such as past incidents, relationship issues, heavy emotions and thoughts, investment a great deal of energy that does not support our personal evolution. Fire is a powerful symbol that consumes indiscriminately with remarkable evidence of total elimination. When you're deciding to surrender your inner struggles to the fire do it safely.

How to do the ceremony:

1- Make a list of all the things you wish to release. People, past situations, and unwanted feelings that no longer serve you a purpose.

2- In a separate piece of paper make another list of things you aspire to accomplish or to be more.

3- In a nonflammable blow light up some fire.

4- Light up sage or palo santo and send blessings to what you are about to do by breathing deep, pouring the smoke around yourself, then open your eyes and pour the smoke of the sage around the papers and bowls.

5- In your mind or out loud invoke gratitude to the universe or source of light for giving you this moment of releasing unwanted energy.

6- Burn the piece of paper with the list of things you wish to let go. As you watch it burn visualize the items of your list being released from your life. 
Repeat this statement: "I, (name), release myself from the past, person, and/or emotion that no longer serve me, for the highest good of All concerned" 

7-Reflect on how your life would look like without those burdens.

8- Now grab in your hands the list of things you aspire to accomplish or to be more. Visualize those thoughts manifesting in your life. Keep this peace of paper close to you at all times and view it whenever you want to.

Closing the ceremony:

1-Give thanks to the Universe for this moment.

2-Give thanks to yourself for taking the time on improving your energies and work on your balance.

3- Turn off the fire with the glass of water and turn off the candles (if any).

Keep in mind that putting the intention is always the first step in moving forward, the rest comes with time, and many times it occurs when the universe feels it’s the right time for you. If you want to let go of something but struggle doing so, reflecting on what was the lesson behind the situation can help you find some peace. Take time after the ceremony to reflect on how you feel afterward. Repeat this ceremony as many times as needed. It is highly encouraged to do this ceremony every full moon to keep the practice of decluttering your body, mind, and spirit to prepare for each moon cycle.

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…
