Linda Boucher is a Certified Angelic, Usui & Shamballa Reiki Master/Teacher. She was attuned to Angelic Usui Reiki by Katharine Valentine of the Path of the Eastern Light in East Haddam, CT in the William Rand tradition, and later received Shamballa Multidimensional training from Netta Wittels in Simsbury, CT during the late l990's..

Reiki sessions are conducted with the recipient fully clothed and lying comfortably on a massage table or sitting on a chair as this gentle universal healing energy is being transmitted by an attuned healing professional. It is a "natural" sacred ancient healing practice, and it needs to be honored as such. Different types of Reiki correspond to the different levels of vibrational energy available to the healer, as spirit guides and angelic beings can also assist in the process to help bring the mind, body and spirit into balance--commonly referred to as "balancing the chakras." This modality can be combined with any other holistic practice and prove to be profoundly beneficial as an adjunct to disease management care, as well as any wellness maintenance program regime.

Healing the Chains That Bind You

Many people tend to jump from one intimate relationship to another without allowing themselves adequate time and space to heal from past hurts. What may initially seem to bring a sense of comfort, strength or relief to their broken heart and life-shattered dreams may suddenly turn into yet an instant replay of the previous situation. Unresolved patterns of relationship begin to lock them into the same old mold, thus feeling melancholy, depressed, frustrated and stuck once more with depleted energy from blocks in their chakras, as the cycle continues to repeat itself.

"Healing the Chains That Bind You" allows us to explore unhealthy relationship patterns and blocked chakras, calling on Saint Michael the Archangel and other powerful Master spirit guides in angel meditations to intervene. As he assists us to cut these karmic cords (aka. ."the chains"), this process helps us to break free of our past, so we can move forward with a renewed sense of inner peace, freedom and hope into a brighter, more fulfilling future that can be ours after all.
