In this episode, we are fortunate to meet Alison Pulito; a Reiki Master, Intuitive Healer, Meditation and Yoga teacher. Her journey into these healing spaces happened when she endured a hip injury 14 years ago which led to 2 hip replacements, a tear in her iliopsoas, immense pain, and depression that left her isolated in her home for 10 years. During this trying time, Alison started a meditation practice to see if it would relieve her pain. Around this same time, she also decided to try Reiki where she was able to be pain-free for 15 minutes. She immersed herself into over 150 books during this time as well as completed multiple online Reiki trainings and since has completed an in person training. She became certified as a Reiki Master in the Usui system. She describes Reiki as "life force energy" and as a practitioner she allows energy to come through her for the highest and best good for the person on the table. During a Reiki session, she also works with the Chakra system which is described as "wheels of light." These energy centers each housed along the spine associated with an organ can become blocked therefore causing complications in certain areas of life that they coincide with.
"With Reiki, you can see it mid-stream and understand a little about it then we can become in more flow with that experience as opposed to resisting it or trying to push it away from us."
Alison's entry into Intuitive healing occurred during her own journey of healing as she would utilize automatic writing after a meditation. It started as a wind sound in her ear which turned into a message of "we need you." During sessions with her she channels messages from the Angelic Realm. Alison also leads group meditations which she recommends as a great place for people to start with her work. The messages in her meditations are channeled from what we are experiencing collectively. She says it provides her students support as they realize that they are not alone in what they are experiencing.
"What I've been told, I'm here to be a teacher and healer for people who are beginning to experience something that transcends their physical day to day experience that brings them into a higher understanding of why they are here."
Alison has provides 3 books that she has found to be influential in her work; "The Calling" by Rasha, "Many Lives, Many Masters" by Brian Weiss, and "Conversations with God, Book 1" by Neale Donald Walsch. She also recommends "The Seat of the Soul" by Gary Zukav for anyone starting their spiritual journey. Alison loves Charlotte for the inclusive nature, the artistic and spiritual communities, as well as the opportunities for growth that are available. She is inspired by Robbie Warren, a Shamanic Healer, Autumn Austin, a Psychotherapist who utilizes Sound Healing, and the entire staff of Noda Yoga for the environment they provide and wealth of knowledge each teacher possesses.
Alison offers many of her guided mediations online complimentary. Visit her website for the links or join her for her weekly meditation classes.
