FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

We hope you can find your answer here, but if you can’t please feel free to contact us.

Who are your services for? 2014-08-13T13:49:26+00:00

Our services are for people who believe there is more to the universe than just the physical world. They are for people who are open to receiving guidance from a unique source and who want to make a sincere spiritual connection. They are for people who want to bring balance and energy back into their lives.

What Is Channeling? 2016-12-14T11:53:52+00:00

Channeling is when we connect with our spirit guides and the spirit world to receive messages for you. These messages offer insight, knowledge and wisdom that is highly personal and tailored to you. We are also able to channel your loved ones so you can speak with them.

Benefits can include happiness, joy, peace-of-mind, clarity, easing of grief, closure, insight and comfort.

What is a Chakra Balance? 2016-12-14T11:53:52+00:00

Every person has 7 major energy centres (Chakras) in their body connected to an aspect of his/her life. These energy centres can become blocked or misaligned and leave you feeling out-of-sorts, off-kilter, tired and with little or no energy.

In our Chakra Balance, we connect with our spirit guides to cleanse and balance your Chakras in order to bring back the proper alignment and energy flow.

Benefits can include restored energy, vitality and a feeling of centeredness and balance.

What is Reflexology? 2014-08-19T16:46:59+00:00

Reflexology promotes natural healing using a method of applying pressure to specific points on the feet. These pressure points correspond directly throughout your nervous system and relate to your internal organs and glands. Using this controlled pressure, Reflexology stimulates nerve endings in the feet, improving blood supply to the rest of the body.

Benefits can include: relaxation, improved sleep and help promote good health, alleviate pain and discomfort, prevent illness and reduce stress.

What is Therapeutic Touch? 2014-08-19T16:51:48+00:00

Therapeutic Touch rebalances and removes blockages from your energy’s meridian system.

In Chinese medicine the channels that conduct energy throughout the body are called “meridians”. These meridians form a network. If the network is disrupted or blockages occur (due to stress, illness, etc.) the body’s energy will not flow as required and organs will not perform their functions optimally. This is when imbalances arise. When the meridians are clear and open, energy flows freely and natural healing is restored.

Placing her hands above your body, Karen is able to detect any disruptions and/or blockages in your energy field through the sensations of heat and/or resistance. She then clears these disruptions or blockages by rebalancing your energy field with her hands.

 

How do I pick a practitioner? 2016-12-14T11:53:52+00:00

The best way to choose your practitioner is to read Lorraine and Karen’s About Us pages. You are also welcome to set up a complimentary 15-minute consultation with each of us to see who you are most connected to. We want you to be comfortable with whomever you choose.

How do you know if I can trust you and your services? 2016-12-14T11:53:52+00:00

We realize that if you don’t know us it is hard to trust us with such sensitive services. We believe that if you speak with us, you will come to have a comfort level with us. This is why we encourage you to contact us for a complimentary consultation. (support@channeled-wisdom.com) We also suggest that you read our testimonials to learn what others have to say about us.

Will I get the same benefits from a remote session as I would with an in-person session? 2016-12-14T11:53:52+00:00

Yes. We use the same techniques for a remote session as we would for an in-person session. The information Spirit passes to us comes from their realm, not ours. As such, you do not need to by physically present when we channel Spirit for your messages or answers to your questions. We have conducted sessions where clients have made requests via email or text and the channeled messages and answers we receive flow to just the same as if the person were with us.

How do you protect my privacy and respect my confidentiality? 2016-12-14T11:53:52+00:00

We will never discuss your name in conjunction to your client relationship with us nor will be ever discuss your name in relation to the messages you receive. While we may keep your personal information as part of our files, those files will not be released to others without your consent, unless required by law. You may look at your record at any time and may request a copy, by paying the appropriate fee. We also adhere to Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documentation Act and Anti-Spam Laws.

How do I know if a Channeling session is for me? 2014-07-31T16:10:09+00:00

If you believe more exists beyond the physical world, and you are open to receiving messages and guidance from the spirit world, then the answer is YES! If you want to connect with a loved one who has passed on, then the answer is YES! If you want to learn more, contact us for a complimentary 15-minute consultation at support@channeled-wisdom.com

How do I prepare for a Channeling session? 2016-12-14T11:53:51+00:00

Messages flow more easily and smoothly when the recipient is open to the experience. Setting your intention before the session will make a big difference. We suggest you simply say to yourself “I open my mind and heart to this experience and whatever messages come through”. Your session will begin with a message from one of our guides. Following that, you are free to ask any questions you would like about the message or any other topic you are seeking clarity and/or guidance on. It is a good idea to prepare some questions before your session. Answers can range from a simple “Yes” or “No” to something that may last up to 30-minutes. As such, we suggest you prepare 3 to 5 questions for a 30-minute session and 5 to 7 for a 60-minute session. You may want to connect with a loved one and have questions for them or just want to listen to what they have to say to you. Some clients prefer to just listen to the message from our guides and don’t have any questions at all.

What can I expect during a Channeling session? 2016-12-14T11:53:51+00:00

At the beginning of a session, we look down or to the side to focus our attention. We then give a silent prayer, giving thanks and asking for the highest wisdom to come through for you. We then connect with our spirit guide and one of our guides will greet you and give you a personal message. Once the message is finished, you are free to ask any questions you would like and/or ask to speak to a loved one who has passed on. We both receive messages in the forms of words, images, physical sensations and innate knowledge and will pass everything on to you in its entirety. The messages come from a place of love and you will receive messages best suited to you and your situation as the time of your session. We do not interpret your message or offer our opinions on your messages, we simply pass on

What if I have a session and don’t get any messages? 2016-12-14T11:53:51+00:00

We guarantee that you will receive messages from Spirit. We have found that messages will flow more freely for those clients who come with an open mind and heart.

What if a bad/dark spirit comes through or I get bad news? 2014-10-30T15:56:06+00:00

When doing any energy work, we always ask for only the highest level of spirits and the highest wisdom to come through. There are lower frequency spirits but we don’t believe bad/dark spirits exist.

Spirit will only give you messages that you need and can handle at the time of your session. Powerful emotions can be raised when receiving messages and communicating with loved ones but they are typically emotions of joy, happiness, relief, peace and comfort.

Will I get all my questions answered in a session? 2014-07-31T16:13:21+00:00

Spirit offers you what you need to know at this time in your life. At the beginning of each session, our guides will have a message for you. Typically, there will be time after this for you to ask any questions that you may have. Whether you get all your questions answered during one session depends on the number of questions you have, the length of the messages and answers you receive and the length of your session. You can always book another appointment if you have lingering questions.

What can I expect after a Channeling session? 2014-07-31T16:11:37+00:00

You will receive a lot of information during your session and you will find yourself thinking about it for many days afterwards. This is normal as there is a lot of information for you to process. We recommend you treat this the way you treat any new information you receive. For example, do you typically journal? Talk things over with family and/or friends? Take a walk to sort through things? Go for a run for clarity? Then do this. If talking things over is your preferred method, we suggest you give thought to who in your life is best suited for this discussion. Who will be most supportive and listen to you with an open heart and no judgement? And remember, the information you receive is yours to do with what you will. You can follow it or discard it. You have free will and the control is yours.

How often should I have a Channeling session? 2016-12-14T11:53:51+00:00

This is difficult to answer as it really depends on the individual. We have clients that come every few weeks, some that come every few months and some that come once or twice a year. Heck, we ask for messages for ourselves several times a week – sometimes several times a day! It is up to you and how often you feel the need for guidance and clarity from Spirit or to connect with someone who has passed on.

What are Chakras? 2016-12-14T11:53:51+00:00

Every person has 7 major energy centres in their body that correspond to an aspect of life: safety and security, desire and happiness, drive and ambition, love, communication and expression, intuition and higher consciousness and awareness. Our Chakras play a big part in our emotional and physical health. These energy centres can become cloudy and misaligned as a result of stress, anger, illness, grief and other negative emotions and leave you feeling off-balance, depleted, out-of-sorts, and with little or no energy.  Read more on Chakras.

How can you see my Chakras? 2016-12-14T11:53:51+00:00

When we conduct a Chakra Balance, our first step is to connect with our guides. Our guides then show us an image of your Chakras in our mind’s eye. We “see” them through our intuitive senses. Well this may seem strange, it actually happens

Why is a Chakra Balance important for my health if I can’t even see them? 2014-10-30T16:02:12+00:00

In short, Chakras play a big part in our emotional and physical health as they are tied to almost every aspect of our life (see previous question). When you are suffering in different areas of your life, your chakras become blocked and out of balance, leaving you feeling depleted and out-of-sorts. By having your Chakras cleansed and balance, your energy and vitality is restored. A balance is also great if you are looking to increase your spiritual development.

Do I need to prepare for a Chakra Balance? 2016-12-14T11:53:48+00:00

There is nothing special you need to do to prepare for a Chakra Balance. Being in a relaxed state is beneficial, however, we have conducted remote balances on clients as they were working, eating or exercising and had just as positive results.

What if my Chakras won’t come clean or can’t be balanced? 2014-07-31T16:16:29+00:00

Your Chakras will come clean and will be balanced. Some may take longer to cleanse and balance than others (and some may not need cleansing or balancing at all) but we will work with our guides until they return to their proper state. As your Chakras are energy centres, they continually respond to stimuli and will need to be cleansed and balanced periodically. Low energy, feeling out-of-sorts or off-kilter usually indicate you need a Chakra Balance.

What if I don’t feel better when you are finished? 2016-12-14T11:53:51+00:00

Results for every client are different as every client is unique and has different needs. The most common results are feelings of alignment, balance, centeredness, increased energy, lightness or a combination of any of these. You may experience all or one of them. Occasionally, some clients experience some dizziness at the end of a session as a result of a rebalancing of energy. When this occurs, we will put our hands on your shoulders to ground you and this should take care of any dizziness. For remote sessions, we are able to ground you intuitively.

How often should I have a Chakra Balance? 2014-07-31T16:17:28+00:00

This is difficult to answer as it really depends on the individual. We would recommend you have a balance whenever you have a feeling of being out-of-sorts, not feeling grounded or find your energy is very low and it persists for more than a few days.

What does Reflexology do? 2014-07-31T16:18:36+00:00

Doctors agree that over 75% of our health problems can be linked to nervous stress and tension. Reflexology improves nerve and blood supply, aiding in the natural healing process and lowering stress. It will aid in the vitality of your overall internal and external body and system functions.

Can anyone have a Reflexology session? 2014-07-31T16:19:06+00:00

Almost anyone can receive the benefits of a session unless you have any medical devices like screws or plates inserted in your legs. If you notify the practitioner, the session may be able to be altered to accommodate you. Anyone with DVT (deep vein thrombosis/blood clots) in their leg will not be able to have a session. Due to safety and health standards, there must not be any open or exposed wounds on the area receiving Reflexology. A Chakra Balance may be an alternative if you are unable to have a Reflexology session

What will I feel during a Reflexology session? 2016-12-14T11:53:48+00:00

Many people find Reflexology sessions very relaxing. It is not uncommon for clients to fall asleep. Some clients will perspire due to toxins being released in the body. The pressure that is applied is firm, but not painful. If there are painful points on the feet, these are signs of energy blockages at the corresponding body points. The Reflexologist will continue to work the tender spots until the energy blocks are released. If at any time the press is uncomfortable, let the Reflexologist know and the pressure will be reduced. For people who have ticklish feet, no need to worry. The pressure is a firm touch.

Do I need a maintenance plan? 2016-12-14T11:53:48+00:00

Like all good things we need to continue with good practices, just like exercising, brushing your teeth and healthy eating. By maintaining energy healing programs, most clients feel more balanced, have fewer colds and illnesses, experience less stress and sleep better. Frequency will depend on each individual, however, once every month or every two months is our suggestion.

What outcome can I expect if I do keep Reflexology as part of a regular maintenance program? 2016-12-14T11:53:48+00:00

With regular session, clients with severe PMS or irregular menstrual cycles have reported more regular and more tolerable cycles. Clients with acute inflammatory disease or illness have experienced a lessening of inflammation and pain, and in some cases medication intake has been reduced. For couples experiencing infertility, Reflexology has helped with the overall maintenance of the reproductive system’s vitality. Please be aware that Reflexology is a complement to your healing process and overall health. It is not intended to replace any medical advice or treatment.
