Intuitive Energy Healing
for the soma, psyche, and spirit
WHAT is this work?
Intuitive energy healing is a blending of techniques
to help bring healing and wholeness to all levels of
your being - spirit, mind, and body. Our work
together holds the intention of helping you experience
internal unity, tenderly removing the barriers to
loving yourself and knowing your true nature.
As living human beings, we've all had experiences
that can leave an impact, or imprint on our systems.
Capital "T" and small "t" traumas, that fragment our wholeness. Whether it be physical, emotional, energetic, intergenerational, collective and so on. We may constrict or abandon parts of our physical bodies. The way we perceive and what we believe about ourselves is influenced. How we relate with people and the environment is affected. And the echoes of these events from our lifetime or that of our ancestors can persist in the many dimensions of our existence.
I believe healing is a journey toward wholeness. The practices I draw from when working with clients include intuitive energy techniques, Reiki, Realization Process (embodiment meditation), IFS-informed inner child and parts work, myofascial release, restorative movement and aromatherapy. With a heart centered and trauma informed approach, we will connect to universal healing wisdom to unravel constrictions on all dimensions. So you may embody your true nature as both human and divine. And live into who you are meant to be and what you are born to bring into this world.
HOW does a session unfold?
A session typically begins with dialogue on what you're currently facing in your life. We'll take time in stillness to settle into the session and allow any feelings, beliefs, or information in the subtle energy to be felt and seen. If appropriate, we may assess any musculoskeletal components contributing to your situation. Time will be spent experiencing deep rest, inviting in loving and healing source energy through hands on or intuitive work. I may guide you through somatic meditation practices to help you embody all dimensions of your being. Whatever arises through these processes we lovingly witness and deepen your relationship too. Gentle movement and/or essential oils may also be used to support your unfolding. Every session is unique to each client and each day.
There is no finish line we must race toward in order to be healed and whole. This life is an ever unfolding journey. Perhaps the idea that we're defective and need to work on ourselves in order to be good enough isn't actually true. Perhaps we are worthy of life just because we are alive! We do this work to remember the part of us that is always whole and inherently good. That we are enough just as we are. That it is our birthright to feel whole, home and alive in our own existence. And that what we experience can be an invitation to a deepening relationship with life as it is, moment to moment. Exploring the inner landscape of ourselves can be unfamiliar and scary. My aim is for you to feel safe and held in a loving and grounded container as you heal.
I am sensitive to the fact that these concepts of wholeness and being home in ones self have varying degrees of accessibility for people, depending on their history of trauma. In their lifetime and that of their ancestors. I continue to learn and unlearn how my identity as a hetero-cis-white-female affects this work. My intention is always to bring respect and humility to clients of all races, ethnicities, religions, sexual preference and gender identification.
WHO is this work for?
If you need help to slow down, be still, and reconnect to your inner wisdom.
Life moves fast and we can feel there's little time to be still and listen to Self or Source. Through energy healing and embodiment practices we'll help you reconnect to the language of your body and soul.
If you're looking for embodied support as you navigate life's challenges.
The wisdom of our body and spirit can often be drowned out by the challenges we face. The embodiment practices I offer can help you to listen and understand what might be hidden within your sensations, thoughts and feelings. So that you can gain clarity and healing on all dimensions.
If you're seeking deeper healing and understanding of your physical injuries.
With my background as a physical therapist, clients often seek me out when they're curious about how the subtle energy, emotions, or beliefs may be contributing to their musculoskeletal issues. Together we'll explore all dimensions of your being and help you know your body as an ally in healing. Knowing that each symptom is an entry point into a deeper exploration and cultivation of loving kindness towards yourself.
If you're ready to let go of "shoulds" and live more authentically as YOU.
We will explore inhabiting your body and transmuting outdated beliefs as a felt experience. Gently releasing constrictions to embody all of yourself. So you can be empowered in remembering your innate wisdom and fundamental nature.
If you want to align with your highest Self.
Whether you're feeling stuck, stressed, facing a barrier, or are feeling out of balance, this work will support you in disentangling from the narrative and connecting to the dynamic stillness within. You will gain clarity and alignment through embodiment practices and energy healing techniques.
If you are an empath.
As a sensitive, empathic person, the world can often feel overwhelming. These practices can help you fully land in your body, attuned to your boundaries and grounded in your own energy. You no longer need to feel swayed by what's happening around you and can reclaim your empathic nature as the unique gift that it is!
I am honored to work with you at any point on your healing journey -
whether you've never had energy work or meditated but are intrigued
or if you've been swimming in the depths of yourself for a long time.
Especially as we start working together, clients often have sessions more
regularly, ie 1x/week, to build their connection to themselves and the
practices. Over time, sessions can be less frequent, ie 1-2x/month.
We discuss what your needs are throughout our time together to keep
you feeling supported and in alignment with what is best for you.

And although I am trained in the spiritual psychotherapy aspect of the Realization Process, this is not psychotherapy.

Marika’s Realization Process Practices came at the perfect time for me. During the “stay-at-home” time I looked forward to Sunday evening to settle down my nervous system. Both the practice of the Realization Process and Marika’s voice took me on an inner journey. Marika’s approach is gentle, warm and accessible. She has done the work herself and is gifted at guiding others through the process. I highly recommend working with her.

Marika's offering of subtle energy work has been so beneficial to me especially during the Covid-19. Tuning in to my inner core being helps me to maintain my rhythm and true potential, letting go of blockages and old belief systems. I'm very grateful for all her work, generosity of spirit and soothing voice. Thank you Marika!
