My name is Esther and I love what I do. I call myself The Healer In the Woods because it feels right, and reminds me every day of who I am and why I am here.
To begin with, I am a Master Reiki practitioner, but I also call myself an energy healer because I often work outside the box of Reiki. Reiki is special. It is a unique energy that has a consciousness of its own. I believe it is important to honor Reiki that way. You see, when I work with a client I begin with Reiki, and sometimes I am guided to do other forms of energy moving once the healing session begins. Knowing this will help you to know what to expect from me. I work with God’s energy. I am highly in tune to Divine energies. I have spent years preparing myself to work in alignment with Divine energy in order to serve you. It took me a while to discover my true purpose on earth, but when I did, the power began to flow fast.
I am a Reiki Master and Teacher. I am also a certified yoga instructor and a certified yoga nidra instructor. I love meditation. I believe in it and encourage all my clients to practice meditation daily as if it were a prescription to heal your life. I offer guided meditation because it is a good way to introduce meditation into a body that finds it difficult to slow down enough to relax and come to stillness. Stillness is healing. With the guidance of my voice, and using guided imagery, we can help your system to respond to the benefits of meditation. I am passionate about yoga nidra.
Yoga nidra feels a lot like guided meditation, but the benefits are very powerful. I once heard a meditation teacher describe it as energetic surgery. I think this is a good description because it helps to heal your energy field and can help to release trauma that is held in your body.
Most healers have a story of their own healing journey. I have personally crawled through hell and came out on the other side. Sharing this helps to make us feel more relatable to help you feel more comfortable and held during your most vulnerable times. Part of my purpose is to help you walk through darkness and help guide you to the light that is inevitably, at the end of the tunnel.
I have worked in customer service for over 25 years, and this has helped me develop a great skill for listening. I believe it is important to talk at the beginning and end of every session so we can help to unearth the intention that motivates your healing. Talk therapy is important, and I am good at holding space for this. Now, there may be times that you don’t feel much like talking, and this is ok too. ♥
I am an Ordained Minister! I love being in this role. A few years ago, my oldest son asked me to bless and perform his marriage ceremony, and I received my ordination just for that purpose. Through this ceremony something special happened to me. I realized how very vast love is. I became aware that love truly has no judgement, and if a couple believes in this unity, I am so honored to Divinely bless their union. And I do baby blessings …. what a lovely thing it is to welcome a child into this world with a blessing. I love this, Om Shanti ♥.
I would like to say that I do all kinds of exciting things outside of work, but my work never really stops. I do my best to walk in alignment with my soul’s purpose, with the Divine, with the earth, with my clients, and with the community that surrounds me. If I’ve learned anything in this life, it is that everything is connected. I’ve learned that when we do our best to help others without any expectations, we stay in a high vibration of love, and this brings inner peace. This is my daily goal – to live in the state of love and service to others. In a nutshell, my purpose is to walk with you through your healing journey while channeling Divine power. But I sure do love to be outside, to sit by rivers and streams, to watch nature, to listen to good music, to spend time with my children and my love, to pray and to commune with God. Om Shanti Shanti Om ♥
