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.
It was brought to my attention that I need to give more info on this paragraph from the first AHIH blog:
Reiki is pretty simple. The healing energy (Reiki can never be used for anything but good) comes from the all loving, healing God, through me to you. I don’t need to know what is wrong, where it is or when it started. God knows. I don’t need to know what religion or belief system you have, God knows. I don’t need to know you at all, and you don’t have to believe it works or to believe in God. You just need to have an open mind.
A friend has back problems for over 20 years. She takes pain med’s in the am and pm and it is a daily routine. She is very scientific and believes in God but I don’t think understands how God can heal her naturally. I offered to Reiki her back for the past 10 years and got the deer in the head light look, along with comments : “that can’t possibly work” “you want to do what to me?” She could barely say Reiki (ray, key) without me correcting her.
I asked to Reiki her back over and over, until one day she finally gave in. (I could hear the choir singing!) When done, I asked “how do you feel” she said fine, and didn’t give me any other feedback. I told her it could take a little while for her to notice a difference. The next day she told me that for the very first time in years, she was able to walk up and down stairs without holding the railing. Four days later, she still had not taken any back pain medicine in the am or pm! This was a miracle in my mind since that had not happened in 20 years!
How did this work? I believe after YEARS of me talking about Reiki, she finally was ok with me working on her. Although still very hesitant, her mind was open to it. Each of us has a I AM presence, I like to call it your Soul. Your Soul knows what it needs to heal, even if you don’t. Your soul is just waiting for you to allow the natural, loving, healing to begin. Reiki is one way.

Welcome to my very first BLOG!! I am very excited to introduce you to all the great events and revelations we have at A HAND IN HEALING (AHIH). This will be filled with news from current classes, past classes and feature information direct from other instructors at AHIH. Please check back often and leave us your comments, as we LOVE to talk about these topics!
I want to get you to really understand Reiki! I have been an Usui Reiki Master Teacher since 1999 and have witnessed “miracles” happen. I believe this happens when the client is so tired of the regular medicine world that they’ll “try anything”. That’s where Reiki comes in.
Reiki is pretty simple. The healing energy (can never be used for anything but good) comes from the all loving, healing God, through me to you. I don’t need to know what is wrong, where it is or when it started. God (Spirit, Universe) knows. I don’t need to know what religion or belief system you have, God knows. I don’t need to know you at all, and you don’t have to believe it works or to believe in God. You just need to have an open mind.
I recommend 3 sessions for anyone willing to try it! The first session you are getting used to me and what happens when I give you reiki. You lie on a massage table, totally dressed except for shoes. There are 7 major chakras (energy centers) that I work with to balance your energy. Each chakra will need different amounts of energy and my hands will get hot, cold or tingly, depending on what YOU need. I “listen” to my hands and move when they return to a normal sensation. Your body knows what it needs, so there is no way to give you too much. The energy just stops when you’ve had enough. You take in what you need at different levels each time you receive Reiki. This works on the spiritual, emotional and physical body.
The second session is easier as you understand what is going to happen, as the process is the same each time. I may spend more or less time on each chakra depending on what you need. This is when you probably will experience some sensations that you didn’t notice in the first session. Parts of your body may POP or feel squeaky as I work on moving the energy around. These are all normal signs that it’s working!
The third session is normally where the “lightbulb” comes on. After the first two sessions you are now starting to notice that it’s working! You are calmer, the symptoms are way less than before Reiki and you feel great! This is where you finally believe it is possible for the “miracle” to occur. Of course, this is all up to you. All I do is bring you what you need at each session.
For those with chronic conditions, I advise you to take the course with me so you can do it to yourself, family and friends, yes, pets too!
