Energy May Be the Key to Unlocking your Happiness

By Elisha Neubauer

For Sharna Langlais, helping people find their way was the culmination of her own life experiences.

Once in the executive management field, Langlais struggled for years with depression and anxiety until finally deciding to reevaluate how she had been handling her own issues. During her journey to self discovery and acceptance, she experienced many healing formats including, Reiki, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, massage, yoga, group processing, pranic healing, shamanism and sound healing.

"As a result of my own journey, I felt called to share what I've learned for myself with others," Langlais mentions on her website.

A Reiki Master and certified Say it Straight Communication Coach, Langlais runs an international practice called Seek Spark Shine. Currently located in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Langlais also returns to San Diego once a month where she maintains a second practice seeing clients. She also works with clients via distance through telephone sessions, and travels around the country offering workshops, as well as a variety of online courses.

"Most of the people I work with find me because they are searching- either to work through challenges or transitions in their lives, or for personal development," she explains. "I'm also deeply committed to guiding clients and students toward the tools and skills that work best for them so that they can carry into their lives."

According to Langlais, Reiki is a form of hands-on energy healing that allows her to work with clients to move through blockages that are held in the body, as well as in the mind and emotions. "When we move through these blocks in our lives, new parts of ourselves emerge and people literally feel lighter," she states. "In addition to the energy work we do during the session, I customize recommendations for books, tools and education that my clients can practice and incorporate into their lives."

When a client first meets with Langlais, she explains her first step in beginning their healing process is listening. "For most clients who are struggling with a dark period, I start simply by listening and working to understand where they've been, where they are now, and where they hope to go," she details. "In this way, I can tailor a healing program to their individualized needs." To create this tailored program, Langlais utilizes Reiki energy work, addressing core causes of stress in their lives, providing them with tools and insights to work through the challenges that are being posed to them, and eventually finding their way toward seeing the lessons these challenges are offering.

"When I work with a client I'm with them every step of the way, providing guidance and support as needed, and also checking in with them in between sessions," she details. "I always tell my clients that I am simply a guide, helping them find their way toward healing themselves." She has found that clients who incorporate their healing work into their daily lives report impressive results, typically within 4-6 sessions.

For those out there who may not be so sold on energy work, Langlais sees it as a challenge- one she's gladly ready to accept. "I love skeptics," she exclaims. "Part of my commitment is to making energy medicine and what it can do for us more widely understood and recognized."
