Do you sometimes notice there’s a feeling in your home that just doesn’t seem right? Learn how to give your space a refresh with energetic healing when you take part in our Energetic Hygiene Virtual Masterclass.
On Saturday, October 24 at 2pm EDT, intuitive energy healer Manuela Welton will be hosting a masterclass on energetic healing using aromatherapy and crystals. Join us as she breaks down what energetic hygiene is, the ways it affects you and what you can do to protect and purify your spirit and space. Each virtual seat includes a kit of 6 mini Relato Nativo aromatherapy blends and the option to add on our gua sha tool (shipping is free in the US!).
Even though energy can’t be seen, you can definitely feel it. By intentionally purifying it, you are helping to clear out any negativity from arguments, heavy emotions or bad days. Bring in fresh energy to revitalize your soul and create a warm, welcoming environment that you’ll love to come home to. Just as there are different ways to clean your house, there are different ways to clean energy. In Manuela’s masterclass, she’ll be focusing on two of the most accessible ways to manifest energetic healing: aromatherapy and crystals.
Scents are celebrated for their potential to clear out negativity and infuse your space with positivity. Using the power of essential oils as a form of energetic healing, aromatherapy is an ideal alternative if you can’t tolerate smoke from smudging. Diffusing a cleansing blend throughout the day also welcomes continuous purification in your space. What’s more, it can even help to reduce negative energy from accumulating.
Crystals are known for their energetic healing properties that can transform the energy in their surroundings. Manuela will be focusing on one of her favorites that she uses often in her practice, rose quartz. Celebrated for its heart-opening effects, this soft pink stone promotes self-love and love for others, enhances feelings of peace and inspires healing. Rose quartz is for anyone who is looking to attract more compassion in their life and release any stagnant emotions inside.
Manuela is an intuitive energy healer based in Santa Barbara, CA. For over a decade, she has dedicated herself to learning various methods of healing. Her approach is backed by an abundance of experience and practices that includes: shamanistic studies, intuitive touch, psychic ability, crystal healing, aromatherapy, mediumship, dance and movement therapy.
Below, we asked her a few questions so that you can get a peek at what she’ll be teaching you. Read on to find out what’s in store when you join!
What led you to your practice of energy healing?
Energy healing was a calling that came to me early in life. I learned I could see spirits when I was only six years old, but never felt comfortable to talk about it. I used to have tea parties with my grandparents, who at that time had already passed. At a very young age, I began to understand that human beings didn’t fully “die.” So, I then eventually started to explore mediumship.
I met my first mentor at the age of eleven. She looked into my eyes and said to me, “You have a gift.” I believe we are all gifted beings, and part of my journey on this planet is to support others to remember that and discover their own. Some of these gifts are visual, while others are felt such as - clairvoyance, clairaudience, claircognizance or clairsentience. Some people have all of them or they might have one more developed than the other.
I began learning and traveling across the world to practice and learn with different teachers in all kinds of cultures. Somehow I always found myself in communities of healing facilitators or First Peoples, who are incredibly connected to the land, rituals and their origins. At 16 years old, I fully surrendered to this practice and then began working with friends, colleagues and my family.
Since then, I haven’t looked back.
What I love about my work is that there’s no marketing; whoever lands on my site or finds me, truly feels the call to learn more. I even met my mentors without seeking them. As the saying goes, “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”
What is energy healing?
Everything is composed of energy.
Energy healing is a rebalancing of energy. The type of healing I facilitate deals with many layers. For example, we can go into blockages that have occurred in this lifetime, previous lives or ones that you are carrying ancestrally or genetically.
I actually do a lot of my work virtually. I have clients in Hong Kong, London, China, Mexico, Colombia, all over the US and different parts of Europe - just to name a few. A lot of people wonder how I do this work from a distance. But, actually, once the person I am speaking with allows it, I am able to access their energetic body. Our energetic body is separate, but not so different from that of our physical body. I see it as a file, carrying current, past and future experiences.
When energy is left too long in the body it can create a disease. Energy clearings are as necessary as brushing our teeth, yet we don’t talk about it enough. Because I work on so many people, I get three a week. It’s important to me that I make sure I am clear before working on someone else.
How can this practice help us during difficult times?
Currently, the world is in a stage of re-evaluation. Most of us are empaths in our true nature, meaning that we feel for one another and sometimes carry pain that isn’t even ours. Anxiety is living in the future, depression is living in the past. The planet is moving at a high speed and so many things are happening simultaneously. At times, the difference between right and wrong seems unclear - polarization is heightened.
Right now it’s vital to make space and time for yourself. These moments are crucial to keeping grounded and centered. It’s key to create a space of connection and ritual, where you can tune into yourself as well as the energy that’s inside and beyond. Oils, crystal and a self-care routine can help to navigate the high speeds, as well as the ups and downs of the current global climate.
Far too often, we get caught up in “doing doing doing” and forget about simply being. Meditation looks different for everyone. It can be connecting to your breath, movement or expressing yourself creatively. You can connect to yourself through writing, singing or, even, silence. Dance is how I connect to my energy and spirit. This movement becomes a way to funnel and release the energy I pick up from my surroundings.
Who can benefit from this kind of healing?
Everyone can benefit from all and different types of healing such as sound, movement or art therapy… the list goes on.
Energy healing is for anyone who is feeling stuck, stagnant or ungrounded. It’s for anyone who wants to dive deeper into their why and wants to connect to their gift - the ultimate knowing and blueprint of why they came to this planet.
I am the facilitator of your own healing. You are the healer. I believe if we were all walking with our own gifts and power, we would be in a whole different world.
