What does "Psychic" mean?

Although the word Psychic brings to mind the image of someone using a crystal ball to make predictions about your future, the word psychic comes from a Greek word meaning soul/breath, so think of it as connecting with your Soul's breath. The readings I offer are spiritual in nature: I enter a conscious state of trance--it's still just me interacting with you, but with a more precise connection to receive information from your Spirit. I have read for people from a wide variety of backgrounds, ranging from orthodox religious to atheist. The information that comes through is from our connectedness, whether known to you as the Universe, Source, God, divine wisdom, or unity consciousness, etc.

 

These techniques provide an effective framework for deep healing that can be explained in many ways. Ultimately, all that matters is being open to whatever is ready to surface and be healed. Although you will receive insight about your life, the focus of these sessions is to provide deep healing by harmonizing your energy field.

What is Valerie's background/training and ideology?

I completed both the Psychic Mastery I & Psychic Mastery II year-long programs from Intuitive Mind and am continuing my education during 2022 in the Psychic Mastery III program for advanced graduates. I received the certificate of completion for Psychic Mastery II, a year-long intensive professional psychic development program. My perspective is also shaped by previous education including a BA in Psychology and Spanish, and a MA in Public Affairs, and by a meandering career path! I am a curious soul, who tried on many different (and mostly pragmatic) paths before recognizing my calling to support others on their healing journey. My teacher, Nancy Rebecca, interviewed me about my experience in her programs. The interview is available on YouTube if you would like to get a better feel for my personality and hear more about my journey.

As my teacher, Nancy Rebecca, says, I believe we are "Spiritual beings having a human experience", and beyond that I don't profess to know what life is about, but I do believe that love and heart connection is the core of it all. A colleague brought through a message from Spirit, describing me as a "multi-dimensional heart healer", and I'm still feeling in to the expansiveness of all that encompasses, but it feels true to my nature and my calling.

What should I expect during a session?

We will begin with a few minutes of meditation together to help settle the energy and prepare your energy field to receive Spiritual information and healing energies. Thereafter, your role is to simply remain present, with your eyes open, while I sit in a state of conscious trance meditation. I will check in with you throughout the session to see how you are feeling and support your grounding and energy field with the integration as needed.

Although there are various session frameworks to choose from, I will follow Spirit's lead, based on what you are ready to shift. Any of the sessions may include integration of a past life, soul retrieval, updating or releasing spiritual contracts and agreements, removing others' energy from your field, taking the "charge" out of stuck memories/traumatic experiences, and/or releasing energetic cords.

What do you recommend I do to prepare for a session?

If you are receiving a Full Reading, a Rose Reading, or an Animal Reading, please take some time to get clear on what your intention is for the session. If you are not sure what would be most supportive to focus on, then I suggest "Spirit's choice". Spirit knows what information and healing will be for your highest good to bring through!

 

Some examples of focus topics include: to gain Spiritual perspective an clarity on a certain issue; to release anything blocking you from being able to tune in to and follow your intuition; to heal from an emotional or physical trauma; to support your ability to align with your highest path and attract the connections and opportunities that will open you to a more authentic expression in this lifetime; to understand why you have certain perceptions about yourself or the world; to break free from a thought or behavior pattern; to help release outdated societal programming; to heal and bring fully in to present time your relationship with your romantic partner or a family member; to expand your ability to give and receive love; to heal your "car curse"; to ask for guidance on a career decision... you get the idea!

Do you read the future?

The simplest answer is no, I do not tell you, for example, that you will meet your soul mate this year, or foretell any life events. However, I can feel into the energy of a relationship, a new career opportunity, or other areas that are unfolding to help you better understand what the future may hold. I can also help unblock anything that may prevent you from seeing/knowing/feeling clearly for yourself.

 

Ultimately, we are all autonomous beings with free will to shape our path. Sometimes we need to re-learn a lesson in order to choose to take a different approach next time. I store the Spiritual lessons that come through so that you do not have to re-learn them in any past, future, or concurrent timelines. This helps to break patterns that you may notice about how you show up in the world or connect with others, but how your path unfolds is ultimately up to the choices you make, moment by moment.

 

Will the session be recorded?

Yes, unless you request otherwise I will provide an audio recording of the session. I find re-listening to a session at a later date often provides new insight and may help you more fully process the information, as it can be difficult to truly hear and absorb everything during the session. You're welcome to bring something to take notes (or doodle) on as well.

 

Do you offer in person sessions?

Yes! I see clients in person at the Wise Awakening Temple Room in downtown Bellingham, WA and at Bow Sanctuary, just south of Larrabee State Park on scenic Chuckanut Drive in Bow, WA.

 

Otherwise, sessions are held either with the client attending via video or phone call, or remotely without client attendance (audio recording of reading will be emailed). Regardless of session type, please email me to book at atdepthhealing@gmail.com.

 

Are remote or unattended sessions as effective as in person sessions?

Yes! At a spiritual level, physical distance does not pose any barriers to tuning in to your frequency and providing an accurate and powerfully healing session. I was skeptical at first, but now regularly experience parallel physical sensations with clients, and the accuracy and depth of the information and healing energies that are brought through are equally powerful as in person sessions.

What is the recommended frequency of sessions?

This varies from person to person and depending on what is coming up for you at a given point in time. If you are struggling with an acute situation or are in a growth cycle, I recommend you book several sessions over the course of a month or so, maybe one every couple weeks. For maintenance/ongoing work, I recommend a quarterly session or more frequently, as guided by Spirit.

 

I encourage you to tune in to your inner wisdom about the frequency and type of support you would most benefit from at this time, including seeing medical professionals, therapists, etc. This powerful work does require some integration time (usually a few days to a few weeks), and we do not want to overwhelm our bodies. I highly recommend mediation as a self healing practice and teach the basics at the beginning of sessions.

What should I expect after a session?

Integration of healing energies, energetic releases, etc. is also a unique process, and can vary depending on the type of healing work we do together in a given session. I always encourage that you build in some extra time after a session to allow yourself to hold space for whatever may have arisen emotionally or physically. Similar to receiving body work, staying well-hydrated and getting adequate sleep/rest are supportive in the days following a session, as our bodies integrate the energetic shifts.

How do I schedule a session?

Email me at atdepthhealing@gmail.com or text or call me at (360) 399-6445 and we will find a mutually agreeable time!

 

What payment forms do you accept?

Please make payment at least 24 hours prior to our session via @atdepthhealing on PayPal and Venmo, or by check. For in person sessions, I do accept cash or check at the time of the service. Please let me know ahead of time if you intend to pay in person at the beginning of our session.
