There are a lot of terms used in this type of work that might be unfamiliar. This page is where I jot down how I interpret their meanings. If I took something directly from a website, I've linked to it. I'll keep updating as I go along. Let me know if there is something missing or unclear!


Chakra - A Sanskrit word that translates to a wheel or disk. It is thought to be a system that holds your body’s energy (or prana). Your actions can help keep it in balance. There are seven main chakras that align along the spine, starting from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. The spheres run along the spine, but extend through and past the front, back, and both sides of your body.


Energy Work (or Energy Healing) - A traditional healing system that restores the balance and flow of energy throughout the body, mind, and soul. This technique works directly with the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of well-being. There are different types of energy healing techniques, which work differently to heal a person: Reiki Healing, Pranic Healing, Crystal Healing, Quantum Healing, Quigong. See also this link.


Higher Self - Associated with multiple belief systems, it can be thought of as the knowing or awakened aspects of ones’ self. Through a higher self one’s deepest truths, hidden knowledge and intuition is accessed. Alternatively, it can be thought of as the part of you that has not been wounded by past experiences (pain, rejection, abandonment, etc.), judgements or prejudices. It is the best part of you/you at the purest level.


Intuitive Empath - Someone who possesses both outwardly expressed empathic abilities toward others and inwardly experienced feelings of intuition toward a situation. See this blog post for more description.


Light Body Activation - Kate will begin with a guided meditation for the participants, and use her highly charged Selenite Swords to offer a Light Body Activation that will leave you feeling relaxed, grounded, and connected. The activation includes a chakra clearing and balancing, clearing of the energetic field, heart and third eye expansion, and a divine feminine activation. This monthly group tune up offering via Zoom is centered around the full moon energy. Be in comfortable clothes, and bring an open mind.


Meditation - A mental exercise that trains attention and awareness.


Mindfulness - A state of active, open attention to the present. This state is described as observing one’s thoughts and feelings without judging them as good or bad.


Past Life Regression - Hypnotic regression technique in which a person is encouraged to move back in time to re-experience a supposed previous existence. Therapists who conduct past-life regression believe that the psychological and physical problems (e.g., phobias, insomnia) individuals currently have can be understood and resolved by discovering their origins in the experiences (e.g., traumas, unresolved conflicts, mistakes) of previous lives. NOTE: Kate sees past life regression as a tool to help you understand your current life. She encourages clients to take the information in and categorize it however it is most helpful, whether seeing it as a story to reflect on or something you want to claim as a past life.


Process Art - Using the experience of making art to explore and express inspiration, growth and change. In process art, the experience of making the art is more important than the outcome. The goal of process art is the creative act itself, without concern for talent, skill or accomplishment. I think of it as journaling through art.


Psychic Medium - Someone who obtains messages from the spirit world in different ways. Some receive intuitive information, in which images and words appear as mental impressions that are then relayed along to the living. In other cases, a medium may hear actual auditory messages or see actual images of these messages.


Reception - Reaping benefits of the intention that is set forth.


Reiki - A Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy.” Read about Holy Fire Reiki here.


Selenite - Selenite is a crystalline variety of the mineral gypsum. It is a very soft mineral which can be easily scratched with a fingernail and therefore not recommended for jewelry, unless looked after very carefully. If placed in water, Selenite will revert to gypsum.


Shamanism - A religious practice that involves a practitioner who is believed to interact with a spirit world through altered states of consciousness, such as trance. The goal of this is usually to direct these spirits or spiritual energies into the physical world, for healing or another purpose.


Soul Retrieval - The idea in shamanic practices around soul retrieval (which relates to western psychology, as well) is that when you have an experience of trauma in your life - and it doesn’t have to be ‘capital T trauma’ - a part of you stays stuck in that time frame. A soul retrieval goes to the part of you that is stuck in that time, at that age, and helps you come back and reintegrate with yourself in this time. To do this, the healer does what is called a shamanic journey. She gets the team of helpers/guides and they journey together to find that piece of me. To connect they usually talk to the person, yet with someone very young they give them a gift and show themselves as non threatening. They then bring that part of the self back.


Spirituality - The recognition of a feeling or sense or belief that there is something greater than myself, something more to being human than sensory experience, and that the greater whole of which we are part is cosmic or divine in nature.
