Reduce Stress & Relax with Reiki!
With Special Guest:  
Melanie Harrell - Owner of Grounded Energy

What a show we have for you!!! This week we get to talk all things Reiki with Reiki Master Melanie Harrell.  

Melanie starts us off with a lovely healing light meditation using her beautiful antique Tibetan bowl.  She fills us in on the fascinating 

history of Dr. Usui and how he “rediscovered” the practice of Reiki (Reiki is a Japanese word translated as "Universal Life Energy" and is now used to describe this energy healing technique) and how it eventually found its way to the US. I've always wondered about the different levels of Reiki, and what is learned in each. Melanie easily explains the steps for students interested to learn this modality for themselves or to be of service to others, or to people interested in receiving this healing universal energy in a Reiki session.

Did you know that you can use Reiki to assist with both emotional and physiological healing? Practitioners have used this gentle modality to aid in the healing of animals, children and even plants! A practitioner can use it on themselves, too. Oh, here’s a super interesting fact: Reiki can be sent across time and space; translation: it can be done remotely AND on past and future selves. How cool is that!? 

I (Kerry) decided to take Melanie’s class after hearing her name throughout the community. I've learned so much, I'm ready to take Level II, and Tiffanie is signing up for Level I! We'll keep you posted on our progress.

At Grounded Energy, Melanie offers her clients past life regressions, energy work, Reiki sessions and classes, and transpersonal hypnosis. She's a Houston native who, after many years as a CPA, political activist and stay-at-home mom, has dedicated her life to practicing and teaching the healing arts. She's been a yoga teacher since 1997, trained in hypnosis, Reiki, and advanced energy work and has a master’s degree in transpersonal psychology from Naropa University. (The topic of her master's paper was the Kundalini spiritual awakening process)  The combination of psychological study and metaphysical experience allows her to work with clients in a variety of ways ranging from traditional hypnosis to Reiki to past life regression and shamanic journeys. The focus is always on the individual.

Contact Melanie via her website, or meet her in person at the beautiful Houston metaphysical shop Body Mind & Soul.
