What is Reiki
Reiki is an energy healing technique using the universal life force energy that is found in all things, to help work with you and your own energy. This energy is within us all, and due to stress, toxins and dis-ease in the body, this energy can become out of balanced and stagnant. Through the practitioner's stationary hand placements on or above the body, this life force energy triggers our Parasympathetic Nervous System. This is our 'Rest and Repair' state that our bodies are meant to go through during restful sleep. The Parasympathetic Nervous System allows our body to do what they are meant to, which is heal itself. However, due to everyday stresses, we rarely enter into this state during sleep. It is said that a 1-hour Reiki session is equivalent to sleeping 4 hours in "Rest and Repair".

How does Reiki work?
Will Reiki work for me?
What should you expect during a Reiki Session?
During a 1-hour session of Reiki, the client is fully clothed (get comfy in some yoga or loose fitting attire), on a Reiki/massage table. The table is fitted with linens cleaned by all-Natural products by Melaleuca. Once you are comfortable on the table, the practitioner will use a light touch or hovering technique of the hands around the clients head, neck, torso, legs and feet. This will last for the first 30 minutes, which after the client will be asked to lay on their stomach (if able to), and the practitioner will go along the shoulders, spine, side of the hips and once more down the legs to the feet. Reiki is intuitive, and the practitioner may feel one area is in need of more work than others.
Every client and every practitioner experiences the energy session differently, and may experience it in various ways. Some may feel tingling or buzzing of their body, a warmth or sensation of heat, and/or coolness. Most of all, you will experience peace, and a sense of calm within yourself. Reiki is about love and light, and the energy will always work for your highest good and healing. Remember, our main goal is to allow you to realize your own healing potential!
Post Session Care:
Drink lots of water. Reiki helps to detoxify the body, and water helps flush them out!
Take baths with sea salts and/or essential oils. Once again, helps with toxins, and grounds your energy.
When should your next session be? If and when is up to you! Listen to your mind and body!
Developed at the Center of Being, by Stevan J. Thayer, IET uses the violet angelic energy ray, as brought to us through the nine Healing Angels of the Energy Field, to work directly with your 12 Strand Spiritual DNA. IET supports you in safely and gently releasing limiting energy patterns of your past, empowering and balancing your life in the present, and helps you to
reach for the stars as you evolve into your future. We chose the term “Integrated” in our name to convey our healing vision of “integrating the pain of the past, into the power of the present, to bring about the joy of the future”. We have been privileged to see Integrated Energy Therapy live up to this vision." -

What you may feel after the session:
"The effects of the session may continue to integrate for up to several days following the treatment. During this time
you may feel energized, light, focused, tired, unsettled, or somehow have a sense of being in transition. Thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations may continue to surface as your body adjusts to its new energetic patterns. All of these experiences are good and normal parts of the integration process. Be sure to rest, drink extra water, and be kind to yourself, especially over the next 48 hours. Listen to what your body is telling you and take time to reflect on any experiences or insights that arise."
The Engima Session is an Intuitively guided treatment that may include Reiki, IET, Spiritually Guided Energy, a Reading or even massage. Many who book appointments are not quite sure exactly what they are needing, so the Enigma Session is trust between yourself and Carrie as a practitioner. She will sit down with you and have a discussion of what you are looking to achieve out of your appointment, and life, and then will proceed with the best plan going forward with a combination of techniques.
There are times in our lives that we feel grief, loss, uncertainty, and lost in life. It's the natural ups and downs of our journey. Once in a while we need answers to calm our thoughts, needing guidance, and needing closure. Although if we sit quietly and listen within ourselves through Meditation, and looking for signs from Spirit, we always like validation.
If you have never had a reading before, it is very common to be nervous. You fear the unknown, you fear the negative, and you fear certain tarot cards that may be drawn. FEAR is just False Expectations Appearing Real. During a reading at Pure Lotus, Psychic - Medium Carrie-Leigh will give you gentle guidance with your life, coach you in your uncertainty, and connect with your loved ones. Remember, a psychic is not the All-Knowing, they simple receive messages from Spirit that you are meant to hear here and now to help you. Negative messages will never be given, and if there is concern for the future, Carrie-Leigh will simply show you how to approach it.
During your reading, Carrie-Leigh will pull from an Angel Tarot Card deck, to see your past, present, and future. During this time, your loved ones will be waiting to speak to you from the other side, and Carrie-Leigh will validate who is by your side and their message. Remember, Spirit will only do what is best for us. It is always around us to help, and love us.
Guided Meditation for Beginners
A one-on-one session for those who would like to learn how to meditate. This 1 hour session allows those to learn easy ways to meditate in a private and supported atmosphere, along with a guided meditation created individually for you.
Meditation is a culmination of the Yogic and Ayurvedic knowledge. Meditation is not just a matter of closing one’s eyes and sitting silently. It is our ability to contact our true Self which is the source of life and intelligence. Meditation helps promote our highest impulses and also roots out harmful and intractable ones. It involves placing the mind in a calm and concentrated state so our mental energies can be renewed and transformed.
Over the years, thousand of meditators have been studied to assess the benefits of the practice. The findings included changes in brain wave activity that indicated increased rest and relaxation; and dramatic reduction in oxygen consumption, breath rate, and blood lactate levels. High lactate levels are associated with uneasiness and anxiety; and low levels with peace and calm. The lactate levels of the meditators were among the lowest ever measured in human beings.
Daily meditation can produce long term benefits, such as
– reduced anxiety
– reduced cigarette smoking and substance abuse
– reductions in cardiovascular disease
– lower free radical activity
– improved reaction time
– improved memory and intelligence
– improved perceptual acuity
– increased self-esteem and self-confidence
– more restful sleep
– a greater sense of relaxation in the mind and body
– increased ability to meet situation with freshness and insight
– a greater sense of creativity and joy
– a younger and softer facial expression
– an improved body posture
