The Third Eye Kiss

Such a wonderful, healing gesture that takes very little effort, yet can do so much for an individual.

All one has to do is softly press their lips on the forehead of another, in the center, slightly above the eyebrows. It’s that simple. What does this beautiful act do? “It activates the pineal and pituitary gland of the person and brings a sense of security and well-being to the person.” ~ www.WisdomHealingCenter.com.

When the glands are stimulated, melatonin is released which is a hormone that humans and animals produce that regulates sleep and wakefulness. Hence, a goodnight kiss on the forehead might be just what the doctor could order for those who may be suffering from insomnia.

Here is something else I found interesting. Our pineal glands produce the most potent psychedelic known to man, dimethyltryptamine. Researchers of dimethyltryptamine suggest that it may help encourage personal empowerment, decrease the symptoms of depression and anxiety, and inspire self esteem, just to name a few. So, with all that being said about the pineal gland, it makes even more sense why the third eye kiss is so beneficial to one’s well-being!

It could also bridge the gap between two souls wanting to connect on a more spiritual level, therefore creating a closer bond with the mind, body and Spirit….. a Universal connection on so many levels.

Interview with Eddie Hill, host of Paranormal Analytical

Today I’m welcoming Eddie Hill, host of Paranormal Analytical. Thank you, Eddie for stopping by!

 

 

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

Well, let’s see where I can start. I am a Retired Police Sergeant with 26 years on the street. I retired in 2014 in order to pursue the Paranormal. I also spent 8 years in the United States Navy Reserves as a Master at Arms (Military Police).
I’ve been involved in the paranormal for as long as I can remember. I’ve had dealings with black shadows, apparitions, UFO Sightings, and possibly a Bigfoot sighting, however, I can’t say for sure on the Bigfoot. I only caught a glimpse of something bipedal, tall, and possibly covered in fur, but due to the distance, it’s really hard to say.
Since I’ve had so many encounters, more than I could possibly write about, I decided to put together a team of professional investigators in order to try and find some answers. We like to think outside the box and try to look for new and different ways to prove or disprove what we are investigating. We are hoping at some point, we will be able to come up with some proven and scientific methods which will assist us, no matter what we are searching for.

 

 

What got you into the paranormal? Was it an experience, curiosity…. or?

From a very young age I began to have experiences with apparitions, dark shadows, UFO cases. I have a feeling that some of my Grandmother’s abilities rubbed off on me. She was a Curandera, who, from what I understand, was very powerful.
(A curandero (Spanish: [ku?an’de?o], f. curandera) or curandeiro (Portuguese: [ku??~’dej?u], f. curandeira) is a traditional Native healer, shaman or Witch doctor found in Latin America, the United States and Southern Europe. The curandero dedicates their life to the administration of remedies for mental, emotional, physical and spiritual illnesses based on their evaluation.[1][2][3][4] The role of a curandero or curandera can also incorporate the roles of psychiatrist along with that of doctor and healer. Some curanderos, such as Don Pedrito, the Healer of Los Olmos, make use of simple herbs, waters, and even mud to effect their cures. Others additionally employ Catholic elements, such as holy water and saint pictures. The use of Roman Catholic prayers and other borrowings and lendings are often found alongside native religious elements. Many curanderos emphasize their native spirituality in healing while being practicing Roman Catholics.
They are often respected members of the community. Literally translated as “healer” from Spanish. Their powers are considered supernatural, as it is commonly believed that many illnesses are caused by lost malevolent spirits, a lesson from God, or curse.)

With that being said, my abilities have always been strong and from what I have been told many times throughout my life, I carry the spirit of the Wolf. I don’t know how true that might be, however, I, along with five others, saw a spirit wolf one night and I was able to touch it. It truly was an amazing experience. We all saw it vanish right before our eyes. I don’t think I would have believed what I saw and felt, if I didn’t have witnesses to this encounter. It was something I won’t ever forget.

 

 

Tell us about your show Paranormal Analytical.

Paranormal Analytical is a show which was created by Altered Vision Studios. Miguel Cantu, our director, producer, and owner of Altered Vision Studios, wanted to harness our talents and abilities to create a true life and true adventure series/documentary that had no scripted lines, no overacting, and just true to life encounters. As you can imagine, when you are strictly working with the actual truth, it’s much harder to gather evidence than what you see on television. But once you are on a quest for the truth, the real evidence is what matters.

 

 

What’s the most bizarre otherworldly experience you’ve ever encountered?

There are so many, that it’s truly hard to place your finger on just one. Each have their very own energy and each of them are special in their very own way. But I would have to say, dealing with a Demonic case where a dark shadow person was going after a 13 year old girl. We are aware that most Poltergeist activity revolves around young girls just reaching puberty, however, the menacing occurrences to this little girl was pushing her over the edge. We had team members scratched, my name being called out on EVPs, so clear, it seemed as though it was HD quality and not just a class “A” EVP. The young girl who was staying with her grandmother finally told us not to come over anymore. That her grandmother was the one who kept calling this thing back by using a Ouija Board. Being that I was still in the Police Department, I was able to get her back with her mother and father. We did three separate house cleanings on that home, all of which seemed to work for a while. We were wondering why it kept returning. Once the young girl told us that he grandmother was involved, the question was answered.

 

 

You’re also on the new show, The Deadly Dogmen, Hunting For Lycanthropes. Share with everyone all the exciting details, what was the inspiration behind creating the show, what viewers can expect to see and where can people tune in?

The Deadly Dogmen series is based upon Leslie S. Mitts and Robert D. Miles’ best selling book, Lycandroids, Super Soldiers, and the Freedom War. Timestream Pictures and Altered Vision Studios teamed up to work on a series/documentary, based on this elusive creature that has been reported thousands of times around the world. Although this is a Cryptid Animal, some believe that much more is going on behind the scenes to keep this creature hidden from public view, more so than the Popular Bigfoot. There are thousands of people who turn up missing in state and federal parks. Some are found dismembered, eaten, or not at all. But this Lycan type creature is believed to be responsible for some of the disappearances. We know there could be many more possibilities, however, if there is a chance that a creature like this exists, we feel the public should be aware and take precautions when they could possibly be in an area inhabited by a creature of this size…an Apex Predator if you will. We have been working hard to gather witnesses who are willing to come forward and tell their story. Locations the creature was seen, and any evidence which someone may have gathered. We have the ability to have samples checked without interference from outside agencies. We hope that the show will spark an interest and allow us the funding to continue our research.

 

 

What’s next for Eddie Hill?

Well, I do what I do! The search will always continue for as long as I am able. Anything Paranormal happens, I am going to be there. I have a great team, Miguel Cantu, Rene Rodriguez, and Patrick Newcomb.
We will continue working on our series/documentary shows, as well as writing and working on Scripts for feature films. We have one that is called Anunnaki that will have a teaser out soon. So keep a watch for that one.

 

 

Where can paranormal enthusiasts and other like-minded individuals follow you and your work?

We can be found on Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram. We have a show every Thursday night on Facebook Live, which also gets aired on http://www.LNMRadioNetwork.com
You can find us live on Facebook Thursday Night from: 7:00pm – 9:00pm Central Time. We have some of the amazing guests on the show. Please keep an open mind and always be respectful to our guests. They are sharing what they know and their opinions on certain topics. It’s not a show for debate, but to learn and take with us what we can, if it will help us along our very own journey.

 

 

Any words of wisdom you’d care to share?

The best wisdom I can share, is keep an open mind. Not everything is black and white. Respect each other and work together to solve problems. We are all a part of this strange and fascinating world. It’s up to us to find the answers. And we will…a lot sooner if we are all on the same page and working together. Keep it real, be safe, and expose the liars. We must do this for each other.

 

 

 

 

“A New Look with a Few Spooks”

Hey all you ghosts and ghouls, beautiful people, lightworkers and such! Wow, that was quite the diverse greeting, wasn’t it?!

It has been nearly four fantabulous years (June to be a tad more precise 😉 ) since the creation of my site and I thought it was time for a change, one that’s been way overdue. As you can see, there’s a kickass new header image (designed by a very dear friend), shadowed by an adorable black, Gothic background adorned with skulls. And I’ve added a few more pages that were once written articles by me. I decided to upgrade the articles to having their own pages to help encourage people to openly discuss their very own personal paranormal experiences and more. So, I gladly welcome everyone’e interactions with an open mind and open arms.

My site here, sheilareneeparker.com, is non-judgemental and is free of all negativity. As I always say, “Positive Vibes Only”, baby!

Also, just for a little added creepiness, periodically I will be posting on here “Spooky Random Facts @ sheilareneeparker.com” to help sharpen the senses about things that “go bump in the night”. So, stay tuned and join in. Let’s have some spooky fun! I’ll try to keep things at a moderate level, not causing too much fright…. and I’ll even promise not to bite…. well, maybe just a little nibble. A girl’s gotta feed sometime, right?! 😉

The Palmer House Hotel

Located in the small city of Sauk Centre, Minnesota stands The Palmer House Hotel. Built in 1901 by Ralph L. Palmer and Christena J. Palmer, this historical landmark is enchanting with all its grandeur, warmth and charm. The hotel is well-known for its paranormal activity with reports dating back throughout the decades.

Aside from the ghostly residents, The Palmer House Hotel is full of rich history. As soon as an individual enters the front door facing Sinclair Lewis Avenue, it’s as if one is taken back in time. The feeling of yesteryear is quickly felt, aided along with respectfully displayed photographs hung upon the walls throughout the building, still constructed with original materials.

In the lobby, close to the base of the stairway, is a beautiful display case. Inside is a very elegant dress worn by original owner, Mrs. Christena J. Palmer. I was in such awe at the sight.

A couple of weeks ago I traveled from the Gulf Coast in Alabama to The Palmer House Hotel to attend The Paranormal Diaries Film: EVENT hosted by my friend, Blaine Duncan and his brother, Austin in honor of their exciting upcoming film, The Paranormal Diaries: A Documentary Film. The event lasted from November 10th – 12th. The entire weekend was full of fascinating presentations. The fun-filled activities were non-stop! Blaine and Austin shared with everyone their background in regards to the paranormal. They also talked about the many awesome locations they visited (including The Palmer House Hotel) while filming and promised to give details upon the film’s release!

Healer and Intuitive, Suzanne Worthley hosted two presentations about Angels, chakras, the difference between spirits and earthbound ghosts and so much more! Hearing her speak literally helped open my mind to an even higher level of understanding.

Psychic Medium, Tiffany Johnson was also there conducting readings. I asked her about my father who had passed away a little more than seven years ago. All I did was ask how he was doing and then Tiffany began to tell me things that I hadn’t discussed publicly before, personal things about my father. I could feel my father’s presence as Tiffany was relaying his messages. Tears began to well my eyes, some were happy and yet some were sad because I still miss him so much. Tiffany Johnson’s psychic gift is true and sincere, and I am extremely grateful for the reading she gave me.

Members of the Twin Cities Paranormal Society team were at the event as well talking about their team’s background history, the use of paranormal equipment and they even shared evidence that was captured on previous investigations. Their evidence was intriguing and some were even intense and frightening evps (electronic voice phenomenon).

And as both nights were winding down, Friday and Saturday, everyone gathered together to conduct paranormal investigations of The Palmer House Hotel. I, along with others, witnessed some flashlight responses when questions were being asked and flickering from light fixtures. Was I frightened? Absolutely not. Not once did I feel anything malevolent or terrifying. However, I must be honest, I did find myself becoming extremely captivated by this exquisite hotel. There was an undeniable sense of “home”, like I had been there before in the past. To those who had experienced the very same feeling, affectionately referred to it as “The Palmer House Effect”. The hotel’s current owner, Kelley and her staff were beyond amazing with their professionalism and yet personable ways! From the very first moment of my arrival to the last moment when I turned in my hotel key, everyone made me feel extremely welcomed!

Even though it has been a couple of weeks since The Paranormal Diaries Film: EVENT, I still feel drawn to the location. It’s something that I will continue to carry with me always!

Reincarnation

This next topic is often bit of a controversial one due to different beliefs. It is never my intent to offend anyone with what I write, but I do believe that having an opened mind is key to understanding the unknown.

Now, the subject of reincarnation is one that I find to be extremely interesting. Do I believe in it? Absolutely, 100%! What exactly is reincarnation? It’s when a spirit/ soul is born again. After an individual dies, their spirit/ soul is reincarnated into another living body. A “rebirth”. Many believe that the reason for this is to learn from one lifetime to another, taking with us knowledge that will help us to achieve higher wisdom.

As crazy as it may sound, I actually have memories of some of the past lives that I’ve lived. These memories (as few as they are) are as clear as the ones that I have from this life. I know this sounds absurd, but I have strong connections with the eras from which my recollections come.

For instance, a couple of years ago I was at a book signing for my novel, The Spirit Within when I was approached by a lovely elderly woman (for which I wrote the article “A Curious Encounter”) who told me that she could “see” things that others couldn’t. Then, she proceeded to tell me that I used to be a white witch. I gently smiled at the beautiful face and replied, “I know” right before she walked away. And I honestly did know what she was talking about, even though to carry on such an intense conversation with her wouldn’t have been prudent at the time. However, I would have loved to have done so because she seemed truly inspiring.

But in regards to which she was referring to, I knew very well. It was late 1600’s, time of the witch trials. I was a single female in my mid- twenties and considered a healer among the community. I don’t remember exactly how it all transpired, but I was eventually wrongfully accused of working with dark magic. My last memory? Hanging in the tree just before I died and looking down at all the ones who sought out my help before the panic of ignorance changed their minds. I also remember my clothing, down to the very minute detail, from my brown dress to my shoes and even my long hair.

Then, there was the life when I was a male soldier in the U.S. Army during World War II. I have such a strong attachment to that time, including the music for which I absolutely love! I died after being shot out in the field. It was pouring down rain, my Army fatigues were soaked and muddied, and I fell face first into a fox hole where I drowned in a deep puddle.

There are a few more memories I have, including when I was a very caring nurse in a hospital at the turn of the 1900’s. These are all pretty intense memories, but they’re definitely mine. If you have any recollections of reincarnation, I’d love to hear about them. Let’s open up and share!

“Interview with Adrian Lee”

Today I’m welcoming psychic, paranormal investigator and author, Adrian Lee! Thank you, Adrian for stopping by!

 

 

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

I am the founder of The International Paranormal Society and a member of the Luton Paranormal Society in England. I have comprehensively investigated ghosts and paranormal activity all over the globe. I first became interested in the paranormal after experiencing several events in my childhood home. In adult life the idea progressively intrigued me that I could interface with the dead from a historical perspective. I first came to Minnesota early in 2008 to work on several paranormal video productions, and I spent two years working in Minneapolis as the national and international news correspondent for a live paranormal talk radio show on 100.3 KTLK. I currently host the only weekly paranormal news quiz show, More Questions than Answers.
My paranormal investigations are informed by my clairvoyance. I see detailed pictures in my third eye presented to me by the deceased. This allows me to have a very precise communication with the spirits. I also have the skill of remote viewing and clairsentience. In my youth my psychic sensitivities were dormant for some time. It was only through my work with other sensitives and through being exposed to various kinds of paranormal contact–coupled with my own personal psychic development, that I developed to where I can now utilize those skills freely. Like any other ability my clairvoyance continues to evolve and is becoming stronger through the implementing of structures surrounding my design for life, critical introspection, and practice.
I have also written the books Mysterious Minnesota: Digging up the Ghostly Past at 13 Haunted Sites and How to be Christian Psychic, What the Bible says about Mediums, Healers and Paranormal Investigators. I currently lecture on all aspects of the paranormal including ghosts, UFOs, psychic development, and angels.

 

 

At what age did you discover that you were psychic? And how have you lived with this ability, do you consider it a gift or a curse?

It is definitely a gift. I have trouble understanding those that complain about it being a curse when we have been given the unique ability to help, heal, and save others—whoever saves one life saves the world entire.
I saw entities in my bedroom when I was a small child growing up in east London—I believed one of them to be my great-grandmother. I described these phenomena to my parents and my father replied by saying, if it was my great-grandmother, then she would not want to hurt me, as she loved me. This is true and I have taken this concept through into my life of investigating the paranormal. Ghosts just reflect the society in which they were born and lived, and people (despite what the media would have us believe) are generally friendly and loving. If you fell over on the sidewalk, or broke down in your car, most people would stop and help.
The only issues I’ve had with ghosts and spirits is when they did not want me on their property, or I was considered the enemy (especially when investigating places like Fort Snelling in Minnesota, which was constructed to stop the British from coming back down from Canada). If individuals were mean and miserable when they were alive, then they are mean and miserable when they are dead—and who doesn’t know people like that now in their own lives. You keep the same humanity and personality when you die, you just lose your physical self.
I have gained the ability through meditation and a design for life to be able to turn my psychic skills on and off when I choose. So I am not bothered by spirits when I am walking through the grocery store or when I am in the shower.

 

 

You’re also a healer, tell us about that.

Many years ago I was the guest at a paranormal investigation being held in a disused Victorian School House in Derbyshire, England. The event was run by the respected British psychic and healer, Annette Moss. She told me during the event that I was a natural healer and that she would teach me to be a Reiki healer. I embraced the chance and studied Reiki and healing energy.
Over the course of my healing practice I have witnessed the most incredible transformations and healing taking place in the individuals I have worked with—in many cases baffling the medical profession by removing or curing disease and illness. Science is always playing catch-up to man’s wisdom. During the modernity of the scientific age of discovery we threw out much of our wisdom and knowledge in favor of what science could prove was right or wrong. Only recently has science discovered and recorded energy and auras being emitted from living creatures and plant-life. It has now recognized that energy can be transmitted from one person to another—so science is slowly catching up. Up until 1992 science said there were only nine planets, today we have found thousands. That is not to say they did not exist before 1992, just that science could not prove they existed.
Last year I had the privilege of healing a horse back from near death with pneumonia, so I am looking forward to working more with more animals in the future—that was a very touching and profound experience for me.

 

 

Being a paranormal investigator and founder of The International Paranormal Society, how do you incorporate your abilities into an investigation? And what has been your most challenging case thus far?

My psychic abilities are used on investigations just like any other piece of equipment. In an ideal world I would want to spend the beginning of an investigation annotating the psychic information I am receiving from the ghosts and spirits in the property. We investigate historically important sites and I am looking to bring history back from the lips of the dead—adding to the canon of American history by unwrapping information that has long since been lost to the knowledge of man.
Having created a large document of names, dates, and events psychically, we would then use the equipment to cross collaborate my findings—so we have empirical evidence backing up my psychic skills. After the investigation I would then find the individuals and the events the spirits spoke of within secondary source materials, like: newspaper archives, books, obituaries, banking details and censors records. I then find historically the individuals that I had not previously been aware of. This is a very powerful tool in proving that an afterlife exists and it is difficult to argue with from a skeptic’s perspective.
The most challenging aspect of investigating comes from the weather conditions or the state of the property I am investigating in. Ghosts and spirits in general don’t give me any issues and they want to be recognized and written about—these individuals are other people’s great-grandparents and great great-grandparents.
I investigated in the town of Long Prairie in Todd County, Minnesota, and it was so cold in the disused opera house that the ink froze in my pen. I have been in the bottom of several historic cargo freighters on a frozen Lake Superior up to my knees in lake water, oil, peeling paint, and other detritus. I guess I am learning that in the Midwest there is no such thing as the wrong weather, just the wrong clothing.
I am asked to remove darkness and Biblically evil entities from locations and properties but I have progressively found that they have removed themselves before I arrive—who is going to stick around to be banished if they know we are coming. The key is to stop them coming back into the property once we have departed, by anointing doorframes and windows, by blessings and using prayers, positive intensions, and clearing ceremonies. The use of salt is very effective and is found in Holy water, as well as many other religious beliefs.

 

 

You’re the author of several books such as How To Be A Christian Psychic: what the Bible says about Mediums, Healers, and Paranormal Investigators…. Mysterious Minnesota: Digging up the Ghostly Past at 13 Haunted Sites….. Tales From A Pioneer Town: the Earliest Stories of Sauk Centre, Minnesota….. and The Haunting & History Of The Christie House.
What was your inspiration to write them and where can readers go to purchase their very own copies?

I am a historian by trade and I lectured history all over Europe. As a historian you are solely dealing with secondary source materials as described above. We do not have a time machine and we were not there. So we collate all the information and present it how we think it may been have been back in that time period. As a psychic and paranormal investigator I can interview someone that was living in 1863 and actually ask them what it was like—just like asking your living granddad what he did during the war. This is now primary source material and I am uncovering history that has been lost and never seen before, this is very exciting and I feel like a cross between Indiana Jones and Sherlock Holmes. It is also unique and no one else is writing books in this manner.
My books can be found in every online bookstore and can be ordered by the well-known multinational book stores found around the US and the rest of the world (if they do not have a copy on their shelves). Please remember when you have read any book that you have enjoyed to leave a positive comment on Amazon. Ninety percent of all book sales are now sold through Amazon and any comments you leave allow the publisher, the author, and the distributor to keep promoting that author’s work—and will allow the writer to publish more in the future.

 

 

More Questions than Answers is your paranormal news radio show. Mind telling everyone about your broadcast and where can listeners tune in?

More Questions than Answers is the only paranormal news quiz show on the planet. We search the world for stories of the paranormal, strange and bizarre, and we test each other’s knowledge. It is a witty and comedic show with a guest panel. It is listened to by over 100,000 people a week in over 190 countries.
The fan mail I receive from all over the world is truly remarkable and humbling—it makes you realize that whether you live in Brazil, Serbia, Vietnam, the Philippines or Egypt, we can all laugh and get on together in the common love of the oddly intriguing and morbidly fascinating.
We broadcast every Friday central time at 8pm of the Dark Matter Digital Network http://www.darkmatterdigitalnetwork.com or you can listened to all of our archives from the last four years anytime visiting http://www.soundcloud.com/mqtaradio. You can also find us on Stitcher, I-Tunes and Tunein Radio.

 

 

What’s next for Adrian Lee, any upcoming projects?

As always I have about five books on the go all at once. I am working on several titles that I hope to have published this year including: Ghosts and UFOs, are they the same? and More Mysterious Midwest. I have expos and events solidly booked for every weekend throughout spring, where I will be a keynote speaker and psychic reader. I am also touring and signing my latest book: Mysterious Midwest, Unwrapping Urban Legends and Ghostly Tales from the Dead. Recent Grammy winner David Ellefson of Megadeth has written the forward to this book. I am filming a paranormal show with him in April with several other celebrities.
Due to its success I am also publishing a second edition of my first book Mysterious Minnesota with a forward written by the author Antonia Felix. I am always busy but I love being active and squeezing every minute out of every day.

 

 

Where can fans follow you and your work?

I have several websites where people can access my events or book a reading or healing:
http://www.IntParanormal.net
www.AdrianLeePsychic.com
You can find my books at: https://www.amazon.com/Adrian-Lee/e/B0089NMD4Q/ref=dp_byline_cont_book_1
On Twitter I am: @Adrian_Lee_TIPS
Or search for More Questions than Answers with Adrian Lee on Facebook. You can write to me at AdrianLee.Author@yahoo.com

 

 

Any advice you’d care to share?

Two things that I consider to be very important. Firstly, learn to meditate, this is the quickest way to improve any psychic abilities and to develop your own sensitivities. There are some great guided meditations you can find on YouTube, search for the ones that suit you best and get started.

Secondly, show no fear. If you write a book or place yourself in the public eye then people will try and shoot you down and write negative things about you—it is an unfortunate part of the human condition. But for every negative comment that is written, another twenty people will say that you have given them life changing healing, valuable advice, or connected them to a loved one that has turned their life around.
Do not let fear stop you from being successful, or let people judging you stop you from achieving your potential, your dreams, your hopes. Go onto Amazon now and look at the negative reviews written for some of my books, when those individuals have never even read them—the lies, the vitriol, the hatred. Then look at the many positive, remarkable, and amazing reviews. I am not concerned in the slightest by those negative comments, if I am not upsetting someone then I am doing something wrong—it is a sign of gaining success and a reflection of where those people are in their own journeys. Not a single negative comment will ever stop me from fulfilling my dreams, writing my books, broadcasting my shows, healing, or investigating. Working with the dead all day has made me realize what it is to be alive…so show no fear!

 

 

Interview with Deb Lloyd

Today I’m welcoming Reiki Master and author, Deb Lloyd. Thank you, Deb for stopping by!

 

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

I was raised on a farm in northern Indiana, the oldest of nine children. At the age of three years, I was stricken with polio. After surgeries and years of physical therapy, I continued to walk with a pronounced limp, but overall, did quite well, married and had two children. While raising young children, I went to college and eventually obtained a Master of Social Work degree. Currently, I work as a hospice social worker in Asheville, NC.
Additionally, I provide Reiki sessions and trainings – and have written a book.

 

 

How did you get into Reiki and what made you want to become a Reiki Master?

In the 1990’s, I started to experience chronic fatigue as a result of post-polio syndrome. I saw a physician who specialized in post-polio syndrome; he prescribed a low-dose medication and it helped a little. Several years later, a coworker told me about Reiki. I was skeptical at first, but after thinking about it more, I decided I had nothing to lose. Truly, during my first session, I felt the fatigue lifting from my body. I have not experienced that level of fatigue again – that was 15 years ago!
My husband and I attended our first Reiki class a few months later. Initially, my focus was improving my energy levels and my physical body. Not only did the fatigue lift, but my legs became stronger and my limp less pronounced. Then, I started to give Reiki to family members and friends. As time went on, I felt called to become a Reiki Master and teach others this healing modality.

 

 

Can you help us to better understand what exactly is Reiki?

Reiki is an energy healing modality. Our belief is that the practitioner is a channel for the Universal Life Force Energy, bringing loving energies through our hands into the receiver’s being. What is different about Reiki is that the Universe guides the energies, not the practitioner. The healing may occur in the physical, mental/emotional and spiritual aspects of a person. Through Reiki, I have learned how powerful the mind/body/spirit connection is. For example, part of my healing was dealing with the emotional impact of polio – although I thought I’d done enough work on the emotional impact of my childhood disease…. but there were still deep-rooted perceptions and feelings that needed further healing.

 

 

Tell us about the services you provide.

I provide a variety of services now, from in-person one-hour sessions through all levels of Reiki training, including Reiki Master training. Additionally, I provide distance healing sessions; this is possible because the Universal Life Force Energy has no limitations. I begin and finish these sessions with brief phone calls, to explain the method and answer any questions a client may have.

One of the blessings in my work is that my intuitive abilities have grown over the years. Combining these abilities with my counseling background, I now offer a Spiritual Counseling component. Clients can add on time for spiritual counseling, after the Reiki treatment ends.

 

 

How can people contact you for a Reiki session?

The easiest way to reach me is to email me at deb@deblloydhealing.com. For more information, please see my website, http://www.deblloydhealing.com.

 

 

You’re also the author of Believe and it is True: A Story of Healing and Life Lessons. What’s your book about and how can readers get their very own copy?

Ridding my body of chronic fatigue was just the beginning. Reiki led me to explore other alternative healing modalities, including practicing yoga, connecting with a psychic medium, and working with a shamanic intuitive healer. It’s been quite an amazing healing journey, where I also learned important life lessons along the way. This journey is detailed in my book. The book is available on major bookselling websites, such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble, in both paperback and ebook formats. It can also be ordered through a local bookstore. And, for an autographed copy, you may order directly from my website.

 

 

On your website http://www.deblloydhealing.com/, you discuss your upcoming workshops and trainings. What can people learn by attending these events?

Most of my trainings are teaching others how to do Reiki. I also enjoy doing presentations at local festivals; the topics vary from Learning about the Archangels, to Working with Colors, to Chakras and the Healing Process. One of the wonderful things about Reiki is that it leads you to study the many ways a person can understand energy better to manifest one’s own healing journey.

 

 

What’s next for Deb Lloyd?

It seems I am writing more and more! I am now a regular contributor to Reiki Rays, an informative website focused on Reiki. Check it out – it is an international, information-filled website. I truly enjoy reading all the articles about Reiki and how it is expressed and practiced in different cultures around the world. Recently, the Reiki Rays creators published a book, where five of us authors answered questions about Reiki. The book is called Reiki 101 – 101 Answers for Your Reiki Questions. It is in electronic form and available through amazon.com.

I remain passionate about sharing Reiki and see no end in sight for offering sessions and trainings!

 

 

Any words of wisdom you’d care to share?

The most important message I try to convey is this: Healing is possible for everyone; everything can be healed. Ask for healing, and listen for guidance – the right modality, book, practitioner or whatever your next step should be, will be revealed to you. Trust your wisdom and say yes to the invitation – and you will find the healing you desire in your life.
