Definitions & Terms in Metaphysical Wellness
Life Coach: is a person who counsels and encourages clients on matters having to do with careers or personal challenges.
Hypnosis: utilizes deep relaxation techniques and the power of positive suggestion to bring about subconscious change to thoughts, feelings and behaviors. All hypnosis is ultimately self-hypnosis; a hypnotist merely helps to facilitate. Hypnosis is widely endorsed as a treatment for habit breaking, anxiety and stress related issues and for a range of long-term conditions, and in recent years has been gaining steam in the medical world after a recommendation from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recognized hypnotherapy as a treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
Past Life Regressions: is a technique that uses hypnosis to recover past life memories for the purpose of gaining greater insight on current life issues and releasing fears and anxieties linked to past life trauma. Much of this work is based on the groundbreaking work of Brian L. Weiss, MD.
Metaphysical wellness: is based on the premise that there is an important connection between mind and body and that negative mental and emotional patterns, left unchecked, can eventually result in physical disease or illness; and that the reversing of those negative mental and emotional patterns into positive patterns can in turn lead to health and wellness.
Reiki Energy Healing: Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes self-healing. It is administered by a Reiki practitioner or Reiki Master teacher who, with a light touch or no touch, flows universal life force energy to promote self-healing and encourage emotional and physical well-being. Reiki practitioners do not diagnose or treat disease; rather they assess the energy flow of the body and support the healing process of their client. Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui developed Reiki in 1922.
Integrated Energy Therapy® is an energy healing modality that uses divine angelic energy via focused intention and affirmations to promote self-healing and re-align and re-balance the individual on all levels (physical, emotional, mental and spiritual). IET practitioners do not diagnose or treat disease; rather they assess the energy flow of the body and support the healing process of their client. This technique was founded by Stevan Thayer who is an ordained Interfaith Minister and a certified Reiki Master.
ThetaHealing® – is an energy healing modality in which a practitioner uses intuition, a process called “digging” and muscle testing to discover the root of an individual’s physical or emotional issues. Its main premise is when a bottom belief is transformed, the beliefs stacked above it will automatically change – like a house of cards – instantly freeing the individual from limiting patterns without the need to relive past traumas. ThetaHealing practitioners do not diagnose or treat disease; the ThetaHealing process promotes self-healing. Vianna Stibal is world-renowned for her spiritual philosophy and meditation technique, ThetaHealing®. Through the self-healing of her own 9-inch tumor over 20 years ago, she discovered that emotions and beliefs affect us on a core, genetic, historical, and soul level.
Intuition: is the act or faculty of knowing immediately, directly and holistically without rational processes and without being aware of how we know. It is also the channel or process through which we access realms of truth and knowledge.
Intuitive Coach: an intuitive coach contributes counseling and guidance as well as psychic impressions to help the client find out where their blocks and struggles are, what they are, how to change, and what to do to facilitate that change.
Psychic Reader: Psychic comes from the Greek word psychikos, meaning of the soul and psyche. It refers to the ability to see or perceive things that most people do not perceive through their five senses. This ability is often referred to as extra-sensory perception (ESP). It can also be seen as something that is immaterial or of a spiritual nature. Psychic and other intuitive readings bring advice, guidance and clarity to the client through the heightened perceptions of the reader.
Tarot and Oracle Card Readings: The premise of Tarot and Oracle Card Readings is that synchronistic selection and spread of the cards reflects the client’s Higher wisdom coming forth with insight, guidance and direction. A skilled reader uses both intuition and knowledge of card symbology to help the client interpret possible meanings regarding relationship, career, life purpose and more.
Medical Intuitive: A Medical Intuitive uses intuition to determine the root cause of a complaint, illness or disease, and/or to proactively discover the imbalance before it becomes disease or illness. Unlike a psychic or general intuitive reading, a Medical Intuitive Reading provides a detailed anatomical and psychological profile of the root cause(s) or core imbalances. It may also include a suggested action plan to empower the client’s resolution or healing of the root cause of their condition, concern, complaint, or illness.
Medium/Mediumship: Medium is a psychic who is able to communicate and interface with spirits in other dimensions. Every medium is a psychic but not all psychics are mediums.
Palm reading (Palmistry): Palmistry is another popular method of psychic readings, which uses the study of the lines, shapes, wrinkles and curves on the palm to gain insights on an individual’s personality and indications of what is likely to happen in the course of a given life. The premise is the palm is predictive, not predestined, and the knowledge gained from a palm reading empowers the client to make course corrections to live their best life.
Tea Leaf reading is an intuitive reading method that interprets patterns in tea leaves, coffee grounds, or wine sediments for the purpose of sharing insight, guidance and direction.
Astrology is the study of the influence that distant cosmic objects, usually stars and planets, have on human lives. The position of the sun, stars, moon and planets at the time of people’s birth is said to shape their personality, affect their romantic relationships and predict their economic fortunes, etc.
