Paula Smith is a health and wellness facilitator, using her spiritual intuitive guidance in tandem with the energy modalities of Reiki, Archangelic Light and Acupressure. She has a B.A. in English from Clemson University and a passion for all things creative. Paula’s personal journey with energy healing has been profound and life changing, prompting her to share her passion and gifts with others.
Many people have a difficult time understanding how energy healing works. Simply put, the foundation of energy healing is to stimulate the body’s natural intelligence in order for it to repair itself and restore balance to the vital energetic pathways within.
As energetic beings, we are exposed to emotional, mental, spiritual and physical pollutants from living in today’s world. When we are energetically balanced, we feel peaceful and in touch with our highest selves; and we experience life in joy and wellness. However, the stress and pressures of daily life can often interrupt that connection with our true state of being, resulting in anxiety, illness and negative emotions. By re-establishing an energetic balance, we enhance our body’s and our spirit’s ability to heal and feel well again.
Paula began her study of energy work and its effects on the body in 2008 when she took a leap of faith and tried an energy therapy for chronic health issues she had experienced for 16 years. She was skeptical about trying something that she didn’t understand and couldn’t physically see, but she had tried everything else in the western medical system without success. It was a crucial turning point in Paula’s life; for the first time in 16 years she started to truly heal. This restoration of wellness in Paula’s life fostered a new awareness of the body’s intelligent energy field and innate healing abilities. An avid reader and a lifelong learner, Paula then immersed herself in a mission to learn as much as she could about energy healing and the mind/body/spirit connection.
Wanting to assist others and to have the ability to continue to help herself, Paula took her first Reiki class in 2011 and continued her training to become a Reiki Master Practitioner in 2013. Additionally, she experienced other healing modalities and became an Archangelic Light Practitioner in 2012, which further enhanced her intuitive abilities, opening her up to receiving intuitive messages and guidance while conducting the energy sessions. Most recently, Paula became certified in Acupressure in 2016, which has amplified her Reiki healing, bringing extra awareness and focus to the body’s meridians (energy channels). By combining her innate intuitive abilities, her personal background and the energy healing modalities of Reiki, Archangelic Light, and Acupressure, Paula hopes to help others on their journey to the health and healing they deserve.
Archangelic Light is a spiritual energy healing modality that assists with healing on all levels (emotional, physical, mental and spiritual). It is a very high vibrational energy that can release stress, remove blockages and rebalance energy fields. It supports positive shifts in consciousness by helping to release emotional obstacles deep within the psyche and by assisting in revealing the root cause of unwanted patterns in behavior. Archangelic Light facilitates the harmonious interactions of the body’s subtle energy force and the body’s physical life force, which results in more overall health and happiness. In a session, the practitioner uses her hands to connect with the client’s auric field as the client lies on a massage table. Archangelic Light works quickly and an average session can be completed in 20 or 30 minutes.
Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a form of natural healing; it is a Japanese technique that can reduce stress and promote relaxation and wellness. Reiki uses the universal life force, which exists in all living beings, to stimulate and harmonize the flow of energy in the body, mind and spirit. It can remove energetic blockages, creating conditions in the body that support health. A session is administered with gentle touch through the use of different hand positions while the client lies on a massage table. Reiki is both a powerful and a subtle energy. Some of the benefits of Reiki can include: acceleration of the body’s self-healing abilities, improved sleep, reduction of pain, and increased energy levels.
Acupressure is a form of touch therapy that uses the principles of acupuncture and Chinese medicine. It uses the fingers to press key points in order to stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities. When these points are pressed, they foster the circulation of blood, relieve muscular tension and aid the body’s life force in repair. Overall, acupressure helps to manage stress, increase circulation, and achieve balance in order to maintain good health. During a session Paula uses Reiki on acupressure points and channels for optimal energy flow and wellness.
