What people are saying about distance sessions

Since working with people over the phone is new for me, and I believe there’s a need during this pandemic, I hope to acquaint more people with what happens in energy sessions.

Every person and every distance session is different. There is no “one-technique-fits-all” way to work remotely. I work intuitively and integratively using my 60+ years of experience in life and experience healing my own issues and injuries; my training in craniosacral therapy, Reiki, Zero Balancing, massage, NLP, biodynamics, anatomy and physiology, and more; my practices in yoga, meditation, and movement; and understanding some basic principles of healing, from Western, Eastern, and shamanic traditions.

One very important principle is that the person I’m working and I create a shared field, in which we both have the intent to facilitate healing, whether it be physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual.

When you are really connecting with someone, you’ve experienced this too. It can happen in person or on the phone. Distance doesn’t matter — the connection is energetic. Same with distance sessions.

This came from the first person I practiced on, back in March 2020 at the beginning of the Austin lockdown for COVID. She is someone I’ve worked with many times before who has a lot of inner resources.

We started on the phone, and after she got nice and relaxed, we hung up. I imagined my hands were connected to her body, and I could feel the energy as more (or more than!) when working in person!

I called her back when the session was over, and she told me pretty much what she wrote below. (Sometimes I stay on the phone the whole time.)

This is what she wrote about our phone session. It resembles a beautiful, empowering, cosmic dream.

Thank you so much, dear MaryAnn, for conducting the remote session on me as your test pilot yesterday !


Oh my flippin’ Goddess, it was… well adjectives fail to capture it all!


First I merged with an actively joyous dog running & playing and then 2-3 serenely content cats; I time traveled to all these crystal clear memories, even from my infancy or when I was a toddler… of deep belly laughing (or how an infant or toddler laughs with complete abandon & with their entire body)!


My energy body carried me back physically to my FAV Maui waterfall, Alelele, and all the myriad sounds from the waterfall, pool and stream morphed into the voices of friends laughing; then I saw friends, family… all sorts of moments of laughing together. I was laughing and then crying for a solid 20 minutes as hundreds of memories downloaded.


Near the end of the session, it seemed I felt rather than saw Mom – Amakua Mary- tapping her “magic crystal wand” and I was transported into my internal Sanctuary (created this over 25 yrs. ago as my inner healing, Visioning, energy integrating, clearing Hucha and more “Happy” place). Now I briefly saw the new addition, my Hall of Laughter!!


From the outside it looks like a faceted clear crystal… maybe as if quartz were cut and shaped into a biodome, about the size of a big RV… with no apparent doors or windows.


Suddenly, I simply knew and so thought the magic question and then…


Was inside floating within this Prism with rainbow light streaks everywhere and some diffuse wavy light beams like northern lights.
From the inside all those hundreds of facets acted as reflectors, yet not of light…


Inside the essence of every single moment of laughter I had EVER experienced – within me, generated by me, witnessed as others laughed, ones where groups of folks were all swept into spontaneously laughing together, my many laughing orgasms from ecstatic dance happenings – was simply there.


Within this magic space, I floated on streams of Laughter of every intensity and form … big, whole body laughs with and without tears to chuckles to giggles to tiny titterings!!!


I could hear the harmonics and FEEL the vibrations of each and ALL while I simply floated there… so relaxed, blissful… FULL, an embodiment of the sweetest JOY!

Checking in. How are you?

How are you all doing?

I miss you.

I usually put out a newsletter near the beginning of each season. I just haven’t been able to get going on it.

I’m at home nearly all the time. I am healthy, doing ecstatic dance and yoga classes online, eating healthy, taking really good supplements, meditating, staying on top of my physical and mental health care.

Well, at least I had hand washing down before this!

I’ve been getting caught up on chores at home: moving my bookshelf, reorganizing my books, sorting receipts for taxes, cleaning.

I have plenty to do: a stack of books to read, access to online entertainment.

But sometimes it’s hard to get motivated. I feel some sadness and some anxiety about this.

When that happens, I find some solace in silently taking in the natural world — mockingbirds and mourning doves, beautiful shades of green (my favorite color), clouds, watching it rain, walking barefoot outside when the rain stops.

I live alone and wish I’d gotten a cat or a dog and planted a garden before this sheltering in place started. I can still do those things. There’s a risk to going out, though, that wasn’t there before.

I guess we’re all learning more about viruses and immunity and public health policies than we’d ever imagined.

I care about you. I hope you are well and healthy, practicing good self-care, and that if you get the virus, it’s the mild version. Or even better, the symptomless version.

What’s it like to not go to your job?

What’s it like if you’re considered an essential worker and are still having to work?

What’s it like if your income suddenly dropped?

What’s it like if you’re on the front lines, as my RN daughter will soon be?

What’s it like to be home with kids all day, if you haven’t been?

What’s it like if you have a medical condition that’s been put on the back burner because all medical resources are focusing on treating the virus?

I feel hopeful that when this pandemic is over, we can rebuild a better society and live saner, more fulfilling lives.

Since so much of my life, especially the craniosacral therapy and the meditation practice I have, is about connecting to Source, calming yours and my nervous systems, and listening with healing intent as our systems shift in response and augment our innate healing abilities, I’m investigating and preparing to practice distance healing.

It’s a way to connect.

If you need someone to send healing energies your way, just let me know. I could use a couple more people to practice on.
