Removing self-doubt from your life

by Cristina Barcelo, Energy Healer

Self-doubt is a big component of why we feel stuck at times. We dream, we make plans, but many times we don’t reach any real results. As a consequence, we stop trying, and lose interest, we become lazy in being the best that we can be. This is all because when we have self-doubt we see only our flaws and weaknesses instead of having confidence in our abilities and positive traits. Basically, we see what is going wrong instead of focusing on what is going right.

Energetically speaking, self-doubt can concentrate in our solar plexus and what happens here is that the energy we have in there begins to shift and create a blockage. We call blockages to energy that is stuck and doesn’t flow through the body because it only concentrates in an area and has a ripple of other effects in your body. When an area of the body gets stuck it can affect us emotionally or physically. When we have self-doubt we may feel insecure and with low self-esteem; moreover, we can develop physical symptoms such as hyper-eating or vice-versa, among other things.

Begin by recognizing if you feel any doubts in a particular area of your life whether it is internally or in acquiring a goal. Ask yourself if there is something that you want to do or say but fear the outcome of the situation. In the past, can you think of a particular situation in which you lacked self-confidence? Has your self-doubt turned into anger, sadness, anxiety, or frustration at any moment? Take a moment to reflect on your answers.

Getting rid of your self-doubt means that you feel more confident and more capable of recognizing your positive traits. We all have our strong traits and the not so strong traits, but when we only focus on utilizing the strong traits instead of the traits we lack thereof we get better results. This can be applied to many situations in life, such as getting a job, meeting someone, good self-esteem, etc. Therefore, it is recommendable that from time to time we check up with ourselves and asses if there is a situation in which we are allowing our self-doubt to take the best of us. Remember, keeping a positive mindset will help you attract the positive things that life has to offers and it all begins inwards.

*EXERCISE: How to boost your self-confidence in a minute*
For a moment close your eyes. Breathe deep. Take a moment to visualize something you want to do or say. Now pause it and imagine there is a golden ray of light shining upon you. Bathing you in the light. This light will bring you confidence. Will remove all your insecurities. Will remove all the negative thoughts and doubts. It will all be replaced with positivity and empowerment. Now breathe deep and feel more empowered with each breath in and out.

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.

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…
