The INDOOR Labyrinth is ready at AHIH! What is it? A single-path (unicursal) labyrinth has only a single, non-branching path, which leads to the center. A labyrinth in this sense has an unambiguous route to the center and back and is not designed to be difficult to navigate. Many labyrinths set in floors are large enough that the path can be walked. They have been used historically for private meditation.
Call 860-620-7709 for your private session or reserve time before a class! Minimal fee of $5., great way to release negative energy and gain positive energy!
A Hand in Healing turned two years old on Feb 11, 2014! As I look back, I realize the journey has been nothing short of amazing! I came into this business thinking we’d have a nice business, help a few people and make a few friends. Instead, it was “BAM”, change lives, meet soul sisters and don’t worry about the business!
I have watched MANY people grow into the 5th dimension, and although this wasn’t in my “business plan”, it has morphed me onto a new path. For 2 years I have watched as the body, and it’s energy system is evolving, keeping up with the earth changes. Experiencing 3rd eye pain, dizziness, adjusting to dietary changes, all to support our whole new way of being. Self confident, courageous, with love, joy and hope for the future of natural healing!
As the body was evolving, the business was changing as well. Behind the scenes, we’ve been building The 7 Heavens Chakra University. Every time I thought it was where it was supposed to be, a new piece would be added. Now, we really do have it all together to begin teaching everything about chakra’s. How they work, and how you need to understand them to have all you want in life: love, health, happiness and prosperity. It sounds simple, yet requires work on your part…you will experience family, job, spiritual, and thought process changes! ALL to become a bigger, better version of YOU!
First Chakra U class is on Thursday, March 20- First Day of Spring, First Day of the NEW YOU!

Are you born to work? Are you born to fill a passion in your life? The answer is both. I believe that everyone starts out in life with work. You work to pay bills, and provide for the basics in life. Along the way, what happens is that you figure out what you really LOVE to do versus just to be paid. The two may not agree, and then you are forced to make a decision. What do I do? If I leave this job, how do I know the thing I LOVE to do will bring me what I need? The answer comes because it is your passion. You are born to fill a passion, this is the core of who you are. Bringing it to everyone around you is your gift. We all have a gift, find yours and let your light shine!
Usui Reiki is my gift. For the longest time, I knew everyone possessed the ability to give Usui Reiki. I acknowledge that we are just channels between the person getting the reiki and their Universal source/energy. There is a difference in each person who gives Usui Reiki in the amount of reiki received by the client and the amount and type of power behind it. With each year that passes, a more powerful component is added for my clients/pratitioners benefit.All vocations are like this, the more time spent doing it, the more information you receive about it to become a master for what you need now. I am proud to say I am an Usui Reiki Master. This is more than a job, it is my vocation. This is my deliberate pursuit in life. I am here to guide you along your Reiki journey with respect, confidentiality and compassion.
I encourage you to find your passion and live the life you are here to live!
When A Hand in Healing closed in July 2013, I thought I would instantly open another store . While looking to purchase a building, I became ill with Anemia. I was sad that I couldn’t continue instantly, but there is always a silver lining. I realized that the time I was given to recover made me really analyze what I wanted to do next. The 7 Heavens drum had given me the vision that chakra’s were where we going, yet I still didn’t have the whole picture. I remembered the journey to the 7 Heavens drum. She told me, when you understand how each chakra works with you, you are in heaven. Years ago, when I originally looked to name Southington Reiki, LLC I wanted to call it Reiki U, but it was already taken. Chakra U was not! Then it all fell together.
Working with chakras in conjunction with Usui Reiki for the past 13 years, I realize that although some people know about chakras, they don’t realize how deeply they need to understand them. For those people who have reoccurring health issues, chakra work can bring about new thought processes in order to heal. Although this is hard work for each individual, you really do feel like you are in heaven once you reach that ah – ha moment! I have witnessed it over and over during reiki sessions!
I knew I could teach how each chakra works at Chakra U …but what else does it need? I thought about how my smell was always lacking, and how important scent is to everyone! I thought about how I carried Red Jasper around for over 8 years! So, of course, stones also needed to be a part. It was easy to add light therapy….now we have everything we need to heal all together !
This one of a kind combination is intense, we recommend that you can go home from this appointment to reflect and journal. Chakra U opening Tuesday, Nov 12, 2013….please call 860-620-7709 for your confidential appointment.
This is the beginning of a whole new YOU! Chakra U!
Sierra does a drum ceremony to her guides to find your power animal. She gets the info needed then blows the energy into your crown chakra and your hands and then you put your hands to your heart. I kind of drifted to the drum beat until the drum got loud and very fast. Sierra didn’t take long before putting the energy into my crown. It was very hot in both my hands that I then put to my heart. As she proceeded to sit down she was as red as could be and said “Oh my Goddness, that was intense and amazing!”. I gave her a minute to relax, have a drink and asked “what’s my power animal.” She said you are a dragon. Now, I know nothing about the dragon and thought it was odd since in my mind dragons are mythical. She told me the Shaman’s want to find out their dragon and it’s not something she would just pull for someone. Dragon must appear for you. Sierra’s journey took her to her power animal to find mine, and then all her power animals showed up and she got worried since that doesn’t happen unless she needs them. She was then taken to the sea, and out comes this iridescent blue majestic dragon. She said it is as big as the mountains and was the sea dragon, but also represented all elements. He came out of the sea, to the sky, then dived back into the ocean. He returned to Sierra with a lapis ocean pearl that was vast and immense. The pearl is the energy of the dragon, particular to that dragon, represents pure light. Dragon medicine is transformation and manifestation. I was now so into it that I needed to find a picture of him, and finally, I found out his name is Zaque. Since then, I’ve used the dragon energy with Reiki when I need something more powerful to clear an area, and Zaque does it quickly! Thank you Sierra for this very powerful reading!
I urge everyone to find their power animal with Sierra. The info she gives you is amazing and can help you connect to something more than you ever thought possible! I look forward to hearing about more people’s power animals during her next session on July 17. Everyone reports a unique connection to the info they are given. Call for your private session today! They fill up quickly!

For over a year, Sierra North would bring drums for the monthly drum circle. I drummed every single one to find my drum….and didn’t until February. When I picked her up (all drums are feminine) and drummed her the first time, I thought maybe this is the one. However, I like to be sure about these things so decided I’d use the drum 3 times to see if I felt the same way. The second time I used it I could feel a better connection and others told me it was singing. Then the May drum circle came and I used it again. Typically, the last person we drum for is Sierra, and it was no different this night. There were four of us drumming and suddenly, everyone stopped. My drum told me keep going. Now I thought “am I just thinking I should keep going or did the drum just tell me that?” This was the beginning of our first communication.
So, I kept going thinking this is weird, I should stop, no one else is drumming and I feel funny. I was told, “it’s our store you can do what you want, keep going.” I asked, “why am I the only one drumming” and was told ” this is a special ceremony for Sierra” Then I started crying and thought: “OH, I better keep drumming” and wanted to know more. “Where should I drum?” “start by bringing in the energy from the Universe to her from the 12th chakra” once that was done, I brought the energy up from mother earth. Now I was told that very special ascended masters were here to help her. I was told to walk around her three times and stop in front of her each time. When the drum was finally done, I was exhausted and glad I was able to do this for Sierra. Sierra verified all that I told her I heard. And she was given something very special she had been waiting for during her meditation in the drum circle.
I can’t properly word the emotions that were felt with this special ceremony. But this is exactly the experience I needed to know that this was my drum. The DRUM picks the DRUMMER, not the other way around. Once I knew this, the next step is to paint the drum….panic attack sets in as I have no artistic ability. Again, the drum is in control here, yet you don’t realize this until you have completed the process. The journey to the drum is where you find out what the drum wants to be. I was told a healing drum to be used before or after reiki. It would be the chakra colors. I had to ask how to paint it? In a pie shape? A rainbow? and was told white in the center and the colors coming out of it from there. The center would be shown to me later. I was told it has to be bright and shiny. OK, I thought, simple enough, I can do this! I needed to paint the entire surface white, and then the rose appeared in white in front of me. I don’t know how to paint roses, even though it’s my favorite flower. After that, the rest just kept falling into place.
The initiation to the drum was amazing! If you’ve ever had an attunement for Reiki, it was very similar to me. My entire body got hot, and when the drum beat got faster, that is when I knew we were connected. But that wasn’t the end. I journeyed to the drum to find out what I’m to accomplish with it. I was told Chakra balancing, before reiki or as it’s own individual session. Next I asked to use the drum on Sierra to see about the chakra colors. I was in awe as I drummed each color and noticed a different pitch. Some colors didn’t sound “right” to me, even though this was my first time doing this, I could tell when it was off. That’s when I learned I need to keep drumming that color until it was clear. I have so much more to learn about “The Seven Heavens,” (my drum’s name). I can’t THANK Sierra enough for this journey with her. I never thought I would own a drum, and then when I did, I really didn’t have a clue how powerfully healing it could be. I can’t wait to add this to my reiki tool belt!
IF you are looking for a natural way to heal, please come to a drum circle – maybe 3- to see if this resonates with you. It really takes a while for you to understand how these drums work with you, but once you get it, there is no return! NO experience necessary, and it will change your life, if you let it! NAMASTE Sierra!

Sierra North is a Shaman who teaches Munay-Ki rites, leads healing drum circles and classes at A Hand in Healing. Munay-Ki is Quecha for “I Love You” . These nine rites of passage or initiation to transform and upgrade your luminous energy field into the rainbow body. Munay-Ki can offer healing of all present day ailments and heal past-life traumas. The rites are common to all shamanic traditions, even though they are expressed in different forms and styles in various cultures. You can read more about each individual rite under the “classes” tab on this website, look for Munay-Ki.
My experience with the Healer’s Rite was amazing! You don’t have to intend that anything be worked on, as every cell in your body is being worked on; however I decided to ask that my sinuses be healed. I have NEVER been able to smell, and thought if this could be worked on, this would be a miracle!
A few weeks went by and one morning I woke with an extreme headache that pounded behind my eyes. Of course I called in sick to my 30 hour a week job and crawled back to bed. I got up to get a drink, did more reiki and went back to sleep. Woke up at 4:30, totally missed the 2:30 pm opening of AHIH! Having no one to go to the store, I posted we were closed that day on FB, ate a little and went back to bed. Slept all night, and woke pretty refreshed.
The next day, I walked into the boss’ office and asked her if she had perfume on. She replied she wears it daily. I’ve worked for the woman for 9 years, and NEVER smelled it before this day! I recognized that I said it, but it didn’t register that I could smell yet! Later in the day, a co-worker peeled an orange for break and I remember thinking,,,that’s a good smelling orange….It didn’t click until later that night, as m husband brought in a steak from the grill that I could smell. I said to him “wow, that steak smells good”. He remarked: “did you hear what you just said? You can’t smell” AND THEN IT HIT ME! I CAN SMELL!!
So for the next half hour, I ran from room to room smelling everything! He said….”Your food is getting cold.” I replied ” You don’t understand, I can smell!!” ”I don’t know when this is going to end, and I want to smell everything I can!”
At the next Munay-Ki class I was so excited to tell everyone what happened to me! Then I found out another lady in the class got her smell back too! As these classes proceeded, one woman changed her life’s work to become a Shaman, we all talked about the fact that we were eating less, but more healthy. We all felt lighter, more in touch with our own spirituality. Those of us who do energy work felt a deeper connection to energy. And when we got sick, it passed quickly. In general, it was an awesome experience, and personally changed my life for the better! If you are looking for another spiritual adventure, try this….I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!
Check the website calendar for the next class! These are taught in a series of 3. Rites 1,2, and 3 are one month, 4,5,and 6 the next month and 7,8 and 9 the third month. You can just take the first three and stop, or the first two and stop. 1-6 must be taken before 7-9. But it is not necessary to take 1-6 in order…those can be mixed up.

The biggest surprise of the channeling session I did with Denise (under About tab, videos) was that I have multiple past lives that I never considered! When Denise told me that the issue I was having was due to past lives, I thought it must be a karma issue. I thought this must be the chance I need to clear it! I was very interested in solving the issue and so happy that Denise was able to connect to her guides to give me the answers to all the “why’s” I needed!
That video was taped one year ago and it still makes me cry watching it today. I NEVER thought I could have so many past lives….and then to have her tell me all about them….seemed so strange and important that it made me weep at the enormity of it. Now, it makes so much sense to me. I understand why I have so much drive to heal. It highlighted so many things that I firmly feel my reason to be here is to pass on Reiki to as many as possible. Healing is at the core of who I am.
Thank you Denise for this major revelation! I can’t believe what an impact this one channeling session had on my life! Please consider a channeling session with Denise if YOU have an issue you can’t get past….there is probably a reason! She does private sessions at A Hand in Healing!

For the past few years, I’ve conducted wand making workshops. The store where I’m offering my home-based workshops would like a demonstration of how to use a wand in energy work. Next month I will be holding a workshop introducing wand work to people who are interested. I plan on bringing the handout I give to the making group and will use that as my blue index cards. I would like to make it very causal with lots of participation, actually this is how I conduct many of my workshops. Below is a writing on wands and pretty close to what one would expect from attending.
I crafted my own wand because I wanted one and could not find any that seemed right for me, as simple as that. I don’t belong to a specific religious group or craft, I wanted something that would amplify my wishes and needed a wand.
In my bag of White Sage there was a stem about 7 inches long. I found it by unraveling one of my sage bundles. That seemed to be the perfect base for a wand, especially since White Sage has clearing properties and would be beneficial to keep the wand clear at all times. I am against using glue (another reason for not purchasing in shops) therefore beads would be strung and wrapped around. Looking through my life long bead collection I chose ones I loved, making sure a variety was incorporated ensuring the most magic and beauty a wand could contain.
“What can you use a wand for?” is a common question I’m asked. Again, the answer is simple, “What ever your heart desires!” I use the wand above to make wishes. When I need support, the wand travels with me. Sitting on the kitchen window sill fills the wand with energy and sparkles when the sun hits it just right. My wands make me happy and feeling special. Taking aim at what I’m striving to achieve is more doable with a wand in hand.
There are several I have crafted for myself and several I have given as gifts, along with consigning them. All are unique, even those that seem to be similar in color or structure had a different feeling about them. I have developed a wand making workshop, none of those are quite the same either. The amazement and joy I get from hosting a workshop or adorning a tree branch is something to be experienced because it’s difficult to put it into words. I’ve tried to give descriptions for advertising and have worked on signage for displays but it really is something to participate in to get the full understanding.
