Julie Hinton-Green: Unveiling the Healing Journey through Reiki

Julie Hinton-Green: Unveiling the Healing Journey through Reiki

In an enlightening conversation with MysticMag, Julie Hinton-Green shares her transformative journey into the world of Reiki, sparked by her personal battles with an eating disorder and body dysmorphia.

Her discovery of Reiki’s healing energies offered a profound sense of balance and inner peace, leading her to pursue a path where she could extend this gift of tranquility to others.

Through her interview with MysticMag, Julie delves into how her unique blend of Reiki and other holistic practices is tailored to meet the individual needs of her clients, emphasizing the significant role of Reiki in fostering mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness.

This candid discussion not only highlights Julie’s dedication to healing but also serves as an inspiring testament to the transformative power of Reiki.

How did you become interested in Reiki and decide to become a practitioner?

I was first introduced to the positive vibration and frequency of Reiki in 2010. I was working through my own eating disorder and body dysmorphia as I grew up modeling and acting I found there was always a light Shaun on my outer appearance. Which always left me feeling insecure and insufficient. Once I moved into the spiritual realm, guided by Reiki energy, I felt so fulfilled, peaceful, aligned, and balanced.

I felt motivated and focused in my new clarity and outlook on life which is something that I wanted to share with others. I’ve had to work through my own personal timeline to understand, clear and bring change into my life. I feel so grounded now. Like a strong tree rooted into the earth. I know everything happens for a reason and the more we trust the process the easier it will unfold. Set your own intention to connect to consciousness.

It is true that the mind has the ability to block the information that you aren’t able to process and deal with at a young age. It is the work and dedication of Reiki energy that allowed me to move through some darker times. I have felt shame, embarrassment, confusion, and disbelief with certain things that had happened to me at such a young vulnerable age, and although it wasn’t anything I did, I still held the heavy energy. I know for certain that I would not be so magically connected to helping others find their light, gifts, and transformative new beginnings if I did not face that experience. All of our previous experiences have brought us to where we are at this very moment. I know that my childhood left a big impact on me, which is what happens to all of us in some way or another. I try to be very aware as I raise my own children opening up your third eye chakra will deepen your own awareness.

Can you briefly explain your approach to Reiki and how you tailor sessions to individual needs?

Reiki is the flow of universal Life force energy some people imagine, or envision it as channeled consciousness, creator, source higher self, or God energy, Which it truly is all of those so, based on their outlook and belief system, we move into the session from there. Whether it’s a 60 or 90-minute session, we always start with an initial consult to pinpoint the structure of the session. I’m listening and feeling to see if any of the chakras are blocked. Every human being should notice a shift in their personal energy level and clarity if they receive a full chakra balance. Also, animals could be greatly impacted by a balanced chakra system. I have become certified at GreatnessU in NLP (Neurolinguistics programming ) hypnosis, timeline therapy, and heart math. I’m so passionate these days about helping people become aware of their internal representation of self. Our minds delete, distort, and generalize all the information that we receive and then our mind processes it through our own internal representation which cannot always give us the best results and outcome.

I will choose what moralities to bring into my session but I always incorporate breathwork before the client comes down onto the table. If the client is not used to moving in their daily routines, we also do a little bit of Qi Kong or moving meditation to help open up the chakra system.

Once the client is in a more open and desired state, I will bring them onto the bed and allow them to shift into a deep healthy, relaxed state. I do use crystals in almost all of my sessions, I use Paulo Santo at the end of every session to cleanse the energy, I also find myself drawn to eagle feathers to help smooth out the energy.

Combining a Reiki session with a full moon or a new moon always adds another exciting layer! Sometimes as we move through life, we feel heavy, out of alignment, and stuck and most people are not even sure why?!

The truth is incorporating energy, and clearing into your self-love routine will have a huge impact on you!

What specific benefits do you believe clients can experience through Reiki sessions?

There are so many positive benefits that Reiki and energy work can give you. I find personally that most of my clients come to me for mental health concerns like relieving stress, anxiety, fear, or depression. Others come looking to strengthen their motivation, determination, and focus, as they look to finding a new path. Others are trying to find a real positive new healthy outlook on life as they shift their own awareness. Once we find a desired state and outcome we want to work towards Reiki energy will Guide a path. It will bring you hints, signs, and information you will receive during the sessions. It is said that energy lives within the body for 72 hours after the session which gives the client time to process everything that’s coming to them through their five senses..

I find that other clients come to me to do huge clearing, that will help them release fear, trauma, and triggers, Thoughts of not being good enough, and not reaching their full potential. I think Reiki has a profound ability to offer you clarity and connection to the higher power energies that make you feel safe, loved, validated, and seen.

Although most of my clients don’t come to me for physical ailments, they do report that after doing Reiki sessions their Chi and vitality are very strongly flowing through their body, which helps raise their vibration and frequency, helping attack people at the conscious and unconscious level. I think it’s important to mention you need to commit to 4-6 succession to really see a transformative, powerful, enlightened shift in your own awareness of what you need to be happy and successful.

Sometimes when first-time clients come into a Reiki session, they don’t know what to expect so their mind and central nervous system do not allow them to fully relax and receive all the titbits of information and guidance that is being given to them. Like anything the more you practice in receiving the energy the easier it becomes. I also like to remind my clients that they should journal after sessions so that we can use that information when they come back in for their next session.

How do you maintain your own energy and well-being to provide effective Reiki treatments?

During my certification in Equine Reiki therapy, I learned a powerful technique that is used to release all other energy fields before I stood in front of the horse and started to connect. I still use it today at my office at 2171 Avenue Rd in Toronto, in between each one of my sessions. I also drink a full glass of water and try to pee after each client to add another layer of cutting the energy cord to the session.

I do a ton of hot yoga to help keep my physical and mental health, always flowing with vitality and Chi. I have two kids that are in competitive hockey and dance which add to another layer of busyness so keeping myself balanced and maintaining my own energy has always been something that I needed to do.

Also, another piece of positive advice is to only surround yourself with friends and family who bring the best out of you and want you to succeed and shine. There are a lot of people in our lives that want to doll and take our energy and knowing who to let in is one of the most important aspects of life.

Can you share a success story or positive outcome from one of your Reiki sessions?

In regards to sharing personal success stories, I want to open up a broader reflection.

I have been working at an amazing clinic called Addiction Rehab Toronto for almost 8 years now. My group sessions consist of Reiki, breath work, Qi Kong, and moving meditation movements. Reiki has an amazing ability to work with people struggling with addiction. It helps them clear the past and become more present in the moment. Reiki brings in waves of forgiveness and healing. A lot of men who come to the clinic, feel like hiding their emotions and feelings, makes them stronger, but the truth is they need to find that opening to share and release so that they can finally ground themselves and heal. I’ve definitely noticed that over the years most of the clients that had never done Reiki before or been exposed to all the positive benefits that it has to offer have received the biggest results and Achieved new outcomes.

At Addiction Rehab Toronto my sessions are offered to clients on a weekly basis. If they are staying for 30, 45, or 90 days it opens up the opportunity to do a bunch of sessions before they leave. I must say that one of my biggest accomplishments is being able to help people struggling with this disease make new connections to spirituality, and find their soul’s purpose is a magnificent feeling for me. I think in the outside world it’s harder for people to commit to sessions because life becomes busy and they have to weigh the options of self-love and taking care of their mental health or the million other things that they need to accomplish. That’s what makes the Clinic the perfect safe place to commit to the Reiki process. Once you set the attention to change your life, there’s nothing anybody can do to stop you from making those changes!

What advice do you have for someone considering their first Reiki session?

I would very confidently look into their eyes and tell them they have absolutely nothing to lose! Being open to new experiences and new opportunities always brings growth and change! To me, it’s a no-brainer the whole world is made up of energy every tangible thing that we can touch and feel is made up of energy and all the elements around us from different dimensions and realms are all around us and they are made up of Energy.

Even if you’re five senses can’t pick up on them and you’re completely unaware they are very much part of your life. Reiki will help you move into a position of being able to harness the energies around you and bring you power, confidence, grace, and ease in your life. Being able to receive universal Life force energy is a magical blessing!
