What Exactly is Namaste?

We hear it, we say it, we practice it......but what is NAMASTE? The gesture of NAMASTE represents the belief that there is a Divine spark within each of us that is located in the heart chakra. The gesture is an acknowledgment of the soul in one by the soul in another.

Definition of Namaste: “NAM” means bow, “AS” means I, and “TE” means you. Therefore, NAMASTE literally means “bow me you” or “I bow to you.”

How to make the NAMASTE gesture: To perform NAMASTE, we place the hands together at the heart chakra, close the eyes, and bow the head. It can also be done by placing the hands together in front of the third eye, bowing the head, and then bringing the hands down to the heart.

This is an especially deep form of respect. Although in the West the word “NAMASTE” is usually spoken in conjunction with the gesture, in India, it is understood that the gesture itself signifies NAMASTE, and therefore, it is unnecessary to say the word while bowing.

We bring the hands together at the heart chakra to increase the flow of Divine love. Bowing the head and closing the eyes helps the mind surrender to the Divine in the heart. One can do NAMASTE to oneself as a meditation technique to go deeper inside the heart chakra; when done with someone else, it is also a beautiful, albeit quick, meditation.

For a Practitioner and Client, NAMASTE allows two individuals to come together energetically to a place of connection and timelessness, free from the bonds of ego-connection. The Practitioner initiates NAMASTE as a symbol of gratitude and respect toward her client and the trust in allowing the Practitioner to connect with their energy and soul, thereby allowing the truth and great healing to flow—the truth that we are all one when we live from the heart.

Who Me?

My Holistic Healing Journey through life started about 40 years ago with pure curiosity, leading to many enlightening experiences which enabled me to discover the gifts of helping others through Healing Ceremonies, or Treatment or Sessions.

The mind, body, and soul connection is all part of the complete over all healing experience.

I always knew, even as a child, I would be doing something with my hands, and I started my college education in a program for Medical Laboratory Techniques, hoping for a Medical Career.

I was in and out of college, depending upon several pregnancies, and my growing family’s demands, and then quite by accident I discovered a brand new modality for me…….IGM Therapeutic Acupressure, leading me forward to further investigate and study Therapeutic Touch, Reiki in several styles, and the wonderful modality of Qi Gong, taught to me by Robert Peng.

I became a Certified Qi Gong Therapist. Almost at the same time, I became an IGM Therapeutic Acupressure Practitioner in 2003, and I began practicing as part of a Bikram Yoga Studio Healing Team, involving a Chiropractor, The Yoga Instructors, a Massage Therapist, an Acupuncturist, a Chinese Herbalist, and myself, as a Holistic Qi Gong Therapist, and Therapeutic Acupressure Practitioner!

But, it got a little distracting there, so to continue as a Healer, so I struck out on my own, turning an extra room in my home into a beautiful Healing Oasis Studio.

But that was only the start of my learning, and I then began studying Reiki, and became a Reiki Master in several modalities. I became a Reiki Master in Usui, Karuna Ki, Violet Flame, and one I’ve developed myself: Angel Paw Reiki for our beloved pets.

I enjoyed a successful practice for 14 years in New Jersey, while continuing to learn, blend, and combine different Holistic Healing Modalities.

During this time, I continued studying, and becoming Certified in areas I knew were part of my journey.

I will list them all here. Although some may be repetitive, as with the Reiki and Acupressure……..Here is the complete list of my qualifications as an Earth Energy Healer:
