Last year I was introduced to a healer, Brianna Carothers. Brianna is an Energy Medicine practitioner in Arizona, and I found her expertise fascinating.

I began to do her Instagram videos consisting of short exercises, well explained and accessible. Almost instantly, I felt a deep emotional release. I DM’d her to learn more.

Yesterday, I did a 1:1 remote session with her.

What happened next was otherworldly.

From another state, she was able to identify locations of blocks in my body, and release them.

I experienced crying, sighing, tingling, a feeling of clockwise spinning in the sacral chakra, a sensation of the floor liquifying – all within 60 minutes. I feel I have a new perspective, and respect, for energy.

Today I felt incredible clarity and energy…like the morning after a thunderstorm.

Brianna possesses a deep knowledge base and a heart of service. I felt comfortable, safe and in the hands of a kind person throughout the session. I rarely meet healers who are bright, kind, intuitive, and high integrity. Brianna is also somewhat telepathic in my opinion – she has gifts that can’t be put into words.

I asked Brianna if I could introduce her, and Energy Medicine, to my readers. She has a remarkable story.

When I first learned about you on Instagram, I was struck by your account name–MyJoyfulHorizons. I loved it—it was unusual and from the heart. Can you tell me how you came to that name for your business?

One day I was driving to visit family. The sun was setting and the Arizona horizon was a multitude of different colors – pinks, blues, purples, yellows and oranges. My Joyful Horizons popped into my head and I instantly teared up. That was to be my business name and it felt right! I tried to second guess myself a few times, but nothing else rang true!

What is Energy Medicine and how would you describe it to a skeptic?

When I first meet people and they ask what I do, I tell them I work with energy. Some people understand that, however there are lots who are new to the idea. Usually, I ask if they’ve ever heard of or experienced Acupuncture or Reiki. Those modalities are fairly well-known and I have a jumping point from there. However, I do run across people who don’t know anything about any energetics field, so I begin by explaining that everything around us, including us, is made of energy. It’s a different type of energy than what we talk about as far as having physical energy to do things.

We are electromagnetic beings so we are constantly interacting with other energies around us from the earth itself, to other people, plants and animals, to inanimate objects in our home. Our energy shifts as we interact with things. Like when you walk into a room of strangers. There is usually at least one person who you are drawn to, and possibly a person that feels overpowering or rubs you the wrong way. That is your energy interacting with other energies in the area and filtering what works well and what doesn’t.

As we go through life our energy is there to keep us healthy and moving forward. When stressors or traumas happen, our energies shift and change patterns to protect us. That new pattern should only be temporary, to create a way to move forward, process the event, and then recover. Unfortunately, most people don’t take the time to recover and allow their energies to reset and realign — so these patterns become stuck. This is when things can begin to manifest as physical or emotional problems. What I do is to help open up those pathways, help process those stressors, and move the energy back toward its original or healthy patterns.

At this time, I work with 8 of the 9 energy systems (defined by Donna Eden) to help clear these energetic blocks.

Tell me how you got introduced to Energy Medicine and how it has helped you personally?

Private Yoga Instructor Santa Monica Los Angeles Healer Profile Brianna Carothers Energy MedicineAt 21 years old, I was diagnosed with MS. There wasn’t a lot that modern medicine could do for me. I was half the age of most people that were being diagnosed. The prognosis wasn’t very good, as they thought all of the symptoms would just happen earlier. They guessed that I would be in a wheelchair by the time I was 40. I’m 42, and wheelchair free!

I was put on a weekly medication, but we searched for all kinds of alternative therapies that might help me. A lot of the modalities tied to eastern philosophies, especially meridians, which seemed to have a positive impact on my health.

About 10 years ago, my husband and I came across Donna Eden’s book, Energy Medicine. It was new and interesting, so we found a practitioner and began going.

At first, I was pretty resistant! Energy and emotions are tied closely together. I came from a stoic family, so it was really hard to deal with the emotions that bubbled up at times.

After a few years of working with our practitioner, she started telling me I should do energy work. Again, I balked. There was no way I could to this!!

After each session we were given “homework.” Points to hold to help with whatever we had corrected/worked on. Often my husband would ask me to hold his points, especially if there were a couple to do. I started feeling shifts and pulses, twinges and other things while I was holding them. It was interesting, so I asked our practitioner what they meant and what was happening. And it built from there.

I am now certified as an Eden Energy Medicine Practitioner! 

Where are you from originally?

I was born in Wisconsin, while my Dad was finishing dental school. However, I grew up in Tucson, AZ.

What kind of conditions can Energy Medicine heal?

I’m not a fan of the word heal. It carries too much weight and responsibility for another person’s health. When we talk about energy, we are looking to balance and create healthy movement where energy has become stuck, stagnant, or created various other imbalances/irregularities. Energy Medicine can help any condition, both physical and mental. I work with the person and their energies to find those places that need movement, rerouting, or support. Energy work is amazing because it is so individualized and working with these unique energies is both fun and rewarding!

Can you see clients remotely or does it have to be in person?

I can do both!! I have a small studio in my home for those who want to do in-person sessions.  I will also travel to people’s homes, especially on the weekends when my family is more likely to be home. Remote sessions are so fun to do too! They are usually done over zoom, so I can interact with the person to their level of comfort. It is always fascinating to listen to them talk about where and how they feel energy moving. So many different descriptions – popping, fizzing, hot, cold, electrical pulses, tension/pressure dissolving, yawning, sighing, stretching, and so many more. My favorite is when they tell me their stomach is growling! That means they are in “rest and digest” not “fight, flight, or freeze” and are more energetically able to release and move energy!

What is one Energy Medicine exercise that everyone should do?

Usually the first thing I teach people is to spoon or massage the bottoms of their feet. To me, this is such an important and simple action all people can do. Working the bottoms of the feet help to open pathways to ground your energy and create some general movement. Personally, I have found that it is difficult to shift energetic patterns if the person isn’t regularly grounded, as there is little to no new energy entering the body.
