As a Certified Medium & Reiki Master channeling messages of healing from the spirit world I am always fascinated by other methods of healing. I was introduced to Trance Mediumship and Trance Healing two years ago while studying and mentoring with International British Psychic Medium Tony Stockwell. Tony is one of the top mediums that practices and teaches the age old art of Trance Mediumship. As a teacher and tutor at Arthur Findlay College in the UK Tony is one of only an elite group of mediums that use Trance as a part of their practice. During the past 13 months I have been working on the art of Trance and now feel confident to use this in my own healing practice with clients; as well as combined with Holy Fire Reiki® offering a powerful non-touch healing modality for clients. So, I wanted to talk about what is Trance Healing? Can it be Real?

Here are a few questions that are often asked associated with Trance:

Q – When is Trance Healing right for me?

A – Trance Healing is for someone that is looking for energy balancing in their body (chakras), mind and spirit. As well as physical aches and pains associated with illness, stress, anxiety or medications. Trance Healing does not take the place of medical advice or Western Medicine. It is meant to compliment traditional healing with alternative healing. It is done without touch or need to be in the same room with clients.

Q – What can Trance Heal?

A – Trance provides healing for most aspects of the physical, emotional and spiritual body by tapping into your guides, guardians and inspirers to assist with the healing that is specifically needed for you. Stress reduction and working to eliminate energetic blocks, strengthen wellbeing, reducing pain and anxiety to promote wholeness.

Q – Do you need to know what’s wrong with me in advance?

A – NO! I do not want to know what is wrong with a client before they work with me. This allows me to completely surrender to my healing guides as well as your healing guides without getting my brain involved in the process. Most instances I will be called to work on or concentrate on an area of concern; at the end the client will confirm there is an issue there that needed clearing!

Q – What does Trance mean? What exactly is this?

A – Trance Healing occurs when the medium is in a meditative space (altered state) where consciousness expands from this world to the sprit world and a blending of spirt takes place with medium. We believe the two souls connect and blend with each other. The healing is coming thru the medium but not from the medium. In the recent series “Surviving Death” on Netflix Ep 2 a medium Libby Clark from the UK demonstrates Trance Healing as she surrenders to a sprit named Dr. James. He comes thru her and offers healing to her clients.

Q – What kind of trance will I be in; how will you put me in this trance; how will you snap me out of it?

A – You are not in a Trance at all during this process. It’s entirely the medium.

Q – How should me space be setup?

A – You should be in a quiet space. No cell phones, no interruptions, in a comfortable chair or lying down.

Q – What will I feel during the trance healing session?

A – This varies from client to client depending on your ability to surrender and relax. Most clients report they had a feeling or sense of total relaxation during the session. Some clients sense or feel things being released and a feeling of guides, guardians or angels gathering for the purpose of offering healing.

Q – How are you able to heal me remotely?

A – Think of a cell phone. It’s not necessary to be in physical proximity to a caller to talk on a cell phone, as cell phones use electromagnetic radio waves to connect with other cell phones. Similarly, Trance clients do not need to be in physical proximity to medium to receive the energy just as mediums don’t need to be near recipients to send it. “We are all energy that connects us because we’re all one.”

Q – Can anything ‘go wrong’ during it?

A – No, similar to reiki healing practitioners & mediums have a mantra “DO NO HARM.” We call upon the loving energy of the spirit world to assist us with administering healing.” We are not medical doctors, we do not diagnose or heal anyone. We channel healing energy that helps your body awaken to the ability to heal.

Q – How is this different from Reiki?

A – Reiki is an ancient practice that goes back to the early 1900’s based on symbols and hand placements channeled by Mikao Usui. Reiki can be done in person or sent remotely. Trance is very similar in that the medium connects with their healing guides and your healing guides to offer healing. I’ve combined the two practices into one calling upon my reiki guides; using Holy Fire® symbols along with my trance guides to offer healing for clients during a session.
