Vibe is a word that’s thrown around a lot these days--especially in hip hop music. I’m sure that you’re familiar with the line, “I can feel your energy from 2 planets away...B*tch don’t kill my vibe. B*tch don’t kill my vibe.” Kendrick Lamar’s rap goes much deeper than just a good song with an infectious beat. What he’s speaking about is the meaning of vibe beyond a buzzy word in social media--a palpable spirit that individuals carry with them everyday--the energy that attracts people to us. Have you ever thought about your vibe? Did you ever think that you always meeting the wrong person or being in uncomfortable situations could be related to what you’re putting out there? What if we told you that there is a person you can see to get your vibes in check? Kalisa Augustine is that person. This shaman’s unique practice in New York City combines crystal bed therapy with light and vibrational techniques to clean your chakras (the spiritual centers of power in your body) in order to bring your body back to energetic harmony, aka to give you a high vibe. Here’s exactly how it works: Listening: The healing session begins with a chat--identifying what’s coming up for you individually. It could be anything from relationships to work troubles to family problems. Kalisa is then able to read your aura to connect the dots and recognize what’s happening internally. Most likely there are blockages to one or all of your chakras, cords of attachment or hooks (energetic ties with a specific person, object or substance) or a combination of all. The Crystal Bed: Once Kalisa has assessed your aura and what needs to be addressed, the treatment begins. You lay on a special magnetic table surrounded by beautiful bowls and a special machine. She loads a crystal a machine that shoots energy into your crown chakra. Kalisa will then walk you through a monologue to get your brain to an alpha theta wave--aka the state that your mind is in when meditating. This process combined with the colors emitted from the machine and the vibrations she generates with the singing bowls allows her to do a mass cleanse of the chakras and auric field by cutting the cords and clearing the hooks. What you’ll gain: Cleaning your energy is just like eating healthy and working out. It is something that is necessary for a balanced being. People that don’t make high vibe decisions aren’t going to make healthy decisions either--about their lives or about the people they surround themselves with. The cleansing process brings a new level of awareness to your life, allowing you to see your habits and the people you interact with for what and who they are. If you don’t live in New York, Kalisa does intuitive counsel via Skype. At the very least, examine what you are putting out there--because chances are when you look within at what you’re putting out, you might see a little more clearly.
