Recently, I was asked by the National Coach Academy for an interview about my journey as an energy medicine expert and coaching professional. I’m happy to share this story with you because it’s a good example of embracing change through crisis. Whether it was going through a divorce, a parent passing, losing a job, or children struggling, each step of the way, my journey seemed to be guided and directed for a higher-purpose.
I share these thoughts because during the coronavirus pandemic it is a time when your intuition is at an all time high. It is an important time to be aware of it and to embrace whatever you’ve been yearning to do next in your life.
I can list a zillion changes I’m welcoming in my life as a result of this crisis while staying at home. First, I have time to write this blog. Second, I shifted both The Dove House, A Center for Healing & Wellness, and Potions & Prayer, Inspired Apothecary Goods, to online businesses. It has been my goal to shift to online for a good year.
To support you on your healing journey, here are a few self-care activities you can do for free in the comfort of your home:
* Take a Free Energy Assessment Quiz to understand the health and wellbeing of your energy centers.
* Sign-up for a Free 15-Minute Energy Therapy Consultation to understand how to take back your power to heal.
Sending you good thoughts,

He said, “Let’s call it ‘Potions’. She said, Let’s add the word ‘Prayers’. So together, the husband and wife team created Potions & Prayers for inspired apothecary goods and the authentically lovable you.
Kathleen Riley McCarthy, Energy Medicine Practitioner and Co-Founder, takes Potions & Prayers to a whole new level by applying her knowledge to create a variety of products based on the body’s energy system of healing and wellness.The Products
Our inspired apothecary goods are hand-mixed in small batches using only natural ingredients infused with healing herbs and pure essential oil blends. Every product is then carefully labeled with special healing prayers, meditations, and intentions to further support an energy system of healing and wellness. The products include soy-based candles, body butter creams, chakra cleanse bars, herbal care creams, stress relief balms, lotion bars, lotion candles, balancing mists, and floral water sprays.The Art
The authentic-self mascot, posing on every Potions & Prayers product label, is an art deco oil rendering Kathleen reproduced in her twenties. She believes the painting’s uncanny relevance adds to the meaning behind Potions & Prayers as a brand that celebrates the healing journey of authenticity. Kathleen offers free energy assessments for customers to find out where their energy system is blocked and what products are best for them. Kathleen also offers individual and group work sessions for clients to learn how to release toxic emotional and spiritual energies. She believes, “We all have emotional or spiritual anatomy that can benefit from this work to allow your true self to flourish.”The Cause
At Potions & Prayers, a portion of our proceeds go directly to The Dove House.org, a 501(c)(3) Wellness Center, in support of Early Intervention for Trauma and
Vulnerability to Co-Occurring Addiction & Illness in Young People. Many of the written prayers on Potions & Prayers product labels come from trauma survivors at The Dove House.
By learning to access your vital energy system, you are actually tapping into your body’s natural healing abilities. The various energy centers, also known as the chakra system, regulate and control many aspects of who you are. They include your emotions, your self-esteem, your capacity to love, to effectively communicate or focus your mind.
From the day you were conceived in your mother’s womb, you experienced wonderful and not-so-wonderful life situations that shaped your health, vitality and well-being. With proper knowledge and understanding of how to care for your energy centers, you are more likely to optimize your health and wellness.
Here’s a simple explanation of how the energy system works when you are exposed to negativity:
When negative energy enters your body, toxic residue forms. If the residue goes unresolved or un-dissolved, layer-upon-layer of negative toxic energies build up. Consequently, these negative energies go deeper into muscle tissues, nerves, bones and liquids in your body. Your body’s vital energy flow becomes restricted or even blocked. As a result, you may become physically unhealthy or act out in ways that aren’t really you.
With energy awareness, you learn how to manage your vital energy centers. You’re able to unblock and naturally redirect your energy in positive ways. Negative patterns dissolve more easily. New pathways open for healthy energy to flow. You’re in a high level wellness zone.
As you enhance your vital energy system, your capacity to restore and maintain the health of your vital organs such as the heart, lungs, liver and kidneys come back even stronger .
You actually notice that you have more energy and enjoying life to its fullest. You’re free. Free to be who you really are – the authentically lovable you.
“I am comfortable in my own skin when I am authentic and I deeply love and accept myself, and the Universe deeply loves and accepts me unconditionally.”
Knowing What’s True
Getting to know who you really are takes a lot of hard work and honesty. You must be willing to commit to the reality of what you know to be true for you. Others will try to sway you to conform to their desires. Say, “Good for you. I am happy that works well for you. Thank you, but this is what I know to be best for me.” Be true. Be you.
