For the past decade of her life, Maggie has traveled the world looking for a way to heal herself from imbalances that manifested in her physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. While she experimented with various traditions and modalities of healing, none of the therapies she experienced brought a true cure until her first journey to Peru where Maggie discovered the single, greatest factor that contributed to her healing, "the understanding of energy or vital life force". Known as kawsay in Quechua, vital life force is a magnetic energy that permeates all beings in the living Universe and all beings rely on this energy for wellbeing and life. To be a living being means you are an energetic being, inter-connected with the Spirit forces of the natural world through your subtle energy body. This discovery prompted Maggie to examine all aspects of her life and she found that her wellbeing was influenced by three distinct energetic factors, 1) Changing the energy environment she lived in, 2) Connecting with the energy of Nature, and 3) Cleansing the energy of her subtle body. By introducing these energetic influences, Maggie was able to restore her indwelling healing response which supported her body to naturally regenerate and heal itself. Today this process has become Maggie's way of life and she shares it to inspire individuals on the path to healing themselves.
1. CHANGE THE energy ENVIRONMENT YOU LIVE IN
A human being will not be able to get well in the same environment that it got sick in. In order to get well, the individual must change their environment. The human body and especially the mitochondria, our sixth sense and the energy powerhouses in our cells, respond to the environment. Therefore it is essential for an individual to examine their environment for clues that correspond to their current state of health. The environment is a living being who we are in relationship with and a teacher who speaks to us by expressing indications for what may be causing disorder inside of the body. Today we are influenced by man-made frequencies which interfere with the flow of energy within our subtle body. It is necessary for anyone seeking healing to asses the energy in their environment such as exposure to non-native EMFs and other forms of radiation as well as environmental factors such as the population density where they live.
2. CONNECT WITH THE ENERGY OF NATURE
Daily connection with native energies in the environment is key to wellbeing. This may seem very basic but when our lives are structured in the container of a modern world, we are often taken far away from this simple truth. By aligning with the energy of nature and the elements we restore our circadian rhythms, the primary influence being the rising and setting of the sun which affects all living beings on the planet including plants, animals and humans. The importance of living close to nature was practiced by our ancestors and is seen today in the high mountain community of Q'eros in Peru where ancient traditions are still in practice including the belief that everything which is alive has a Spirit. In this village all of life is revered as sacred, even the elements who are addressed by name: Tayta Inti (Father Sun), Mama Qocha (Mother Water), Tayta Wayra (Father Wind), Pachamama (Mother Earth).
3. CLEANSE THE ENERGY OF YOUR SUBTLE BODY
The subtle body is comprised of various layers of vibrating energy that make up a human being. These layers create what is known as the auric body system, or aura, which is intimately associated with our health. In Peru, Maggie was introduced to a traditional system of medicine called Curanderismo which views an individual as a spiritual being and promotes healing through nature and faith-based practices such as prayer, rituals and herbal remedies. Maggie was intrigued by the way Curanderas view disease and she began studying with them to learn about the energetic roots they believe lead to poor health. From the perspective of the Curandera there are spiritual causes of illness that create blockages in the subtle body and need to be cleansed so energy can flow within the human being. They are: Susto (shock or trauma), Alma (reduced vital-force from soul loss), Ancestro (heavy energy from ancestral lineage), Tristeza (sadness or depression), Envidia (envy), Billis (suppressed anger), Mal Aire (exposure to bad air) and Mal de Ojo (evil eye primarily affecting children).
INDIVIDUAL SESSIONS | FOR WOMEN, MEN, & CHILDREN
During a 1-1 session, Maggie guides you through the PUAKAI Model of Healing: cleansing your subtle body of heavy energetic influences and initiating a re-connection with Nature through the five elements. A healing effect is achieved by various therapies including: limpias (sprirtual cleansings) with eggs and freshly harvested medicinal plants, herbal infusions, holy and flower waters, cleansing and flowering baths, plant smoke, sound healing and prayer. Maggie also offers guidance on assessing the energy of your environment and exploring how it may be affecting your wellbeing. An individual may benefit from a session if they are experiencing:
Acute or chronic illness, disease, abuse, injury, accident or no medical diagnosis
Emotions such as fear, shock, grief, anger
Trauma, anxiety, addiction, depression, PTSD, hyperactivity, dissociation
Disconnection from soul, confusion of life purpose, longing for wholeness & connection
