FAQ

The metaphysical world is not easily understood; however, as the world continues to evolve and change, more people are looking for answers and turning to spirituality and alternative healing to guide them through the turbulence of every day life.

Below is a list of Frequently Asked Questions that we hope will help you in your understanding of your journey…

What is metaphysics?

Metaphysics is a branch of philosophy concerned with explaining the
fundamental nature of being and the world. A central branch of metaphysics is ontology: the investigation into the basic categories of being and how they relate to each other. Another central branch of metaphysics is cosmology: the study of the totality of all phenomena within the universe.

What is spirituality?

Spirituality is belief in an ultimate or an alleged immaterial reality, an inner path enabling a person to discover the essence of his/her being; or the “deepest values and meanings by which people live.
(Ref: www.wikipedia.org)

What is New Age?

The New Age movement is a Western spiritual movement drawing on both Eastern and Western spiritual and metaphysical traditions and infusing them with influences from self-help and motivational psychology, holistic health, parapsychology, consciousness research and quantum physics. It aims to create a spirituality without borders or confining dogmas that is inclusive and pluralistic. It holds to a holistic worldview emphasizing that the Mind, Body and Spirit are interrelated and that there is a form of monism and unity throughout the universe.

How do I determine what kind of workshop or reading is best for me?

We all have lingering questions nestled deeply in our conscious or sub-conscious minds, answers that we hope to find some clarity on in order to free our minds, or find a sense of peace: why not take that step today? At Serendipity, before coming in for a reading of any kind, we suggest to our guests to form an area specifically where they seek answers – whether that is a defined question, clarification on their future, developing an understanding of current circumstance, or simply just for fun. Serendipity is always open for calls or question (613-722-3400) and we can also direct you toward the most suitable reader to get that clarity and find the answers to those questions!

What can I get from a reading?

A reading is a very personal experience. Everyone experiences readings differently, people take away from it varying answers or feelings and this can change and evolve with every reading they have. The process involves letting go of what your mind is thinking and trying to focus on what you are feeling. A reading can bring you varying forms of information. Whether it is confirmation on something you already know, that “Aha!” moment, perhaps guidance on how to take the next step forward in your life, new information entirely, a new perspective or perhaps an inclination toward the future. Whatever the case may be, a reading can help to provide you with a sense of clarity in order to move forward, help direct or redirect your efforts and energy onto a course that best suits you. You may hear this concept being referred to as manifesting or creating your own reality.

What is meditation?

Meditation is a practice in which an individual trains the mind and induces a mode of consciousness to realize a benefit. There are a variety of practices which range from techniques designed to promote relaxation, contacting spiritual guides, building internal energy (chi, ki, prana, etc), receiving psychic visions, getting closer to a god, seeing past lives, taking astral journeys to more technical exercises targeted at developing compassion, love, patience, generosity, forgiveness and more far-reaching goals such as effortless sustained single-pointed concentration, single-pointed analysis and an indestructible sense of well-being while engaging in any and all of life’s activities. As a result, one must be specific about the type of meditation they’re looking to practice.

What is an energy field?

An energy field can be thought of as a grid of fine lines running criss-cross throughout the whole universe and through every living being, thereby connecting every part of creation to each other. These fields change with time due to various positive and more often negative influences. This field surrounds and runs through the body, holding within it information which reflects the current mental, physical and emotional state of the individual. Our personal energy field is in constant contact with the outside world because it is part of it, absorbing slow frequencies from electrical equipment, collecting other people’s negative energies, storing the memory of upsetting interactions with others and most importantly, carrying the memory of our past illness, distress and life experience. Everyone is a unique being, encompassing the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. These different aspects of being human cannot be separated because they are all linked and powered by the underlying Life Force Energy. While the flow of energy through the body is smooth and continuous, we remain in good health. However, when pain, trauma or stress arises in our lives, the flow can be disrupted and this may then lead to ill-health. Negative emotions can build up within the field and if left uncleared, may lead to physical illness and emotional and mental imbalance. By clearing uncomfortable energies out of the field, blockages are released and fresh universal energy is able to resume its vital flow, strengthening your whole being.

What is Alternative Healing?

Alternative healing is seeking out non-medical and therefore non-traditional avenues to solve physical illness. Alternative healing is based on historical or cultural traditions rather than scientific evidence. It is said that when there is an energetic balance and a smooth, continuous flow within one’s physical, emotional and spiritual health, one remains in good health. However, when negative experiences (ex. pain, trauma or stress) arise in our lives, the negative energy and emotion they carry can disrupt the balance and potentially lead to ill-health if left uncleared. By clearing negative energies out of the field, blockages are released and fresh universal energy is able to resume its vital flow, strengthening one’s whole being.
