Summer Self Care by Stephanie
“What you do for yourself-any gesture of kindness, any gesture of gentleness, any gesture of honesty and clear seeing toward yourself-will affect how you experience your world.” -Pema Chodron
Nourish Body, Mind & Spirit
Summer is the perfect time to slow down and notice where you need to be "fed", aka, practice self care. Nobody can do this for us. And if we don't do this for ourselves, we risk becoming resentful, contracted, and unhappy! We must feed ourselves in order to feed others.
As I spoke about last week, we are in charge of our own happiness and this includes on going self care. Give yourself permission to do what makes you feel good. You're worth it.
Top 5 Picks to Nourish Body, Mind & Spirit:
Massage - From therapeutic and deep tissue massage to relaxing massage, it's one of the oldest healing modalities. Massage can relax muscles, soothe aches and pains, release energy blockages, rejuvenate body, mind and spirit.
Yoga - Yoga promotes inner and outer health & well-being. In addition to improving physical health: flexibility, strength, balance, pain management, yoga is a powerful tool in personal transformation. Yoga has been shown to decrease stress, helping with anxiety and PTSD, while improving our mood and outlook on life.
Meditation- We get 2 choices: medicate or meditate. From managing stress, anxiety, and PTSD to cultivating a deeper sense of inner peace and well-being, meditation can help.
Energy Healing - Chakra Balancing is an energetic healing technique that works holistically on the body, mind and spirit from the inside out. Major systems of the body are restored with life-force energy to promote body's natural ability to heal. Chakras will be cleared and re-balanced so you feel lighter and empowered.
Reading List - Self-enrichment is one of the keys to growth.

Give Love, Give Reiki Bronxville
We are excited to announce starting Saturday, February 17th, 2018 Heather (bio below) will be joining team BWS to offer Reiki.
Reiki is a Japanese energetic healing technique that works holistically on the body, mind and spirit from the inside out. Reiki energy breaks up and flushes out energy blockages, often built up over time, whether from past trauma, toxins in our food /environment, lack of movement, or chronic patterns of negative thinking or emotions - which we know by now affect us on a cellular level.
Reiki re balances the body’s complex energy systems and opening the channels for the body to heal itself.

Give Reiki Love to Someone you Love with an Instant Gift Certificate.
Heather has been a student of holistic wellness since she was 14 years old. Before she even knew what the term “reiki” was, she was practicing it on her friends. She is passionate about helping clients reduce stress and anxiety through her energy work.
Heather has gained knowledge from some of the most experienced teacher trainers in the country (Reiki: Jeff Migdow, Brett Bevell, and Libby Barnett. Yoga: Devarshi Steven Hartman, Jovinna Chan, and Lakshmi Voelker).
When she’s not practicing reiki or on her yoga mat, Heather enjoys seeing live music. Taken from the lyrics of her favorite song by The Allman Brothers, she hopes her sessions will “let your Soul Shine”!
Valentine's Day is 2 weeks away. It's one of our favorite occasions here at the Sanctuary.

From our own self-love, all other love grows. In fact, the ability to nourish ourselves first enables us to effectively (aka without resentment) nourish others.
And as Stephanie writes, you must Save Yourself First.

When things heat up this summer, in addition to drinking plenty of fluids, preferably water, there are other ways to keep your energy levels balanced.
First, what do we mean by balanced energy?
No question we are living in tumultuous times. There is much change, and as such many of us are feeling the effects. If you are an em-path, you are feeling the effects even more.
Whether we feel the effects physically, mentally and/or emotionally, it all comes down to energy. As a result, some of us feel drained, tired...lazy, not motivated and we need to gain energy.
Others of us feel wired and perhaps even scattered and unable to focus. As such our energy needs to be pulled back or "in" and re-directed.
How do we bring energy back into balance?
With an Energy Healing Session. During a session, the intention is to restore energy back to balance.
At BWS we offer Shamanic Energy Healing Sessions with Stephanie and Reiki Healing Session with Maggie.
While both are forms of energy healing, there are differences. The truth is, to feel the difference, you have to experience a session. Afterward, you will know what resonates with you.
In the meantime, Stephanie explains Shamanic Energy Healing as a way to deeply uncover, uproot and reset the entire body in order to live the life we were meant to live - a JOYFUL one. As she shares in Chapter Two of her book Reclaiming JOY,shamanic energy healing helped Stephanie release her fear of living the life she desired.
Maggie describes Reiki Energy Healing as raising your vibration level, helping you move out of whatever feels "stuck" into a place of expansiveness, freedom and choice. Summer is a time for play, and Reiki can help you connect to your inner child.

Shamanic Energy Healing Benefits, by Stephanie
When someone comes to me for a shamanic session, we start with WHY.
What it comes down to for most of us is wanting to feel: peace, stable, protected and nourished.
Why do we want to feel these things?
Because we are experiencing their opposite: stress, not grounded, unhappy, vulnerable, confused, disconnected, alone...to name a few.
How do we end up feeling this way?
By being human and getting caught in habits that no longer serve us. There are many habits so I will share the top 5: lack of awareness, endless doing, resistance to change, absorbing and then emitting negative energy (em-paths!), fear. Note to em-paths- April Workshop will be "Walking With Protection".
What can we do?
Change our habits!! At the root level = energetic level.
So, when people ask me how shamanic energy healing helped me change my habits, I invite them to experience one of the 3 sessions I offer. The next question after that usually is, which one is "best"?
Here's what I will say, try not to over think.
Pay attention to what you are emotionally drawn to and try it.
For those needing more mental explanation, kindly note:
1. Shamanic Reading- Best for getting a surface level sense of your obstacle and some ways to overcome. A snapshot if you will.
2. Shamanic Chakra Balancing- Best for receiving wisdom and also experiencing relaxation and clarity. In addition to above, I will clear and re-balance your chakras so you feel lighter and empowered. Also a great way to get to know me before we dive deeper together into a...
3. Shamanic Energy Healing Session- Best for those who are saying "I am ready and willing to change habits once and for all in order to fully enjoy life". If you aren't sure what I mean by enjoying life- read my blog here. This session includes all of the above at a deeper/root level to bring about lasting, positive, healthy transformation. Multiple sessions are suggested as we will be co-creating your future.
Note: I offer all of the above in person and via phone.
Remember: we are working at the energetic level which means there is no need to be physically together. In fact, some of the most powerful work I've done is via phone because the physical can be distracting. When we work at the energetic level, it is the deepest level, allowing us to get to the "root". While it may be more intense at first, it is more effective, less work in the long run, and faster than tackling it from the mental/emotional. It is also incredibly empowering as we learn to become self-referencing...our own best teacher :) Once we change at the energetic level, the physical, mental, emotional follows suit. It's why I LOVE it!!! LOVE.
