Gia Combs-Ramirez is an energy practitioner and soul intuitive. Here is a brief interview with her.
Q: You have an unusual job and live on a ranch. Could you tell us a little about yourself and what you do?
>>>>>I grew up in Montana where it was very fun in the summer and very boring and cold in the winter. When I was 15 my parents bought a second home in Mexico and I started living part of the year in Mexico (guess which part of the year!) and the rest of the time in Montana. When I was 30, I went through a big crisis (a.k.a Saturn Return) and I felt the need to get more schooling in something, although I didn’t know what.
Much to my surprise, and everyone else’s, I decided to go to massage school. From the beginning I loved the classes that were about energy. After graduating from massage school I continued to study energy through a variety of classes. Eventually I quit doing massage (but I still get them!) and kept working with energy. Energy is like the air you breathe…. you can’t see it (usually) but it is there all around us.
About 7 years ago I discovered I could do my energy healing by phone, which was fun because I began working with people all over the world. I could be sitting on a beach, working with someone on the other side of the world OR sitting in my pajamas while working. I really love my job!
Q: What do you do as an energy healer?
>>>> In a sense we are all healers because our bodies have built in
healing mechanisms. I remind the body about its healing abilities.
Kind of like a mom reminding you to pick up your socks… except it’s a
lot more fun and loving.
Q: What is it like to live on a ranch?
>>>I live on the same ranch that I grew up on. It’s not a ranch with cows and fields of hay or crops. It’s a guest ranch where people come to stay in the summer and ride horses. When I was young I loved the summers which were filled with new friends every week. We liked to play in the creeks, go racing across the meadows on horseback, and lie on our backs on piles of hay and stare at the stars. In the winter my brothers and I had to go to school and that wasn’t much fun.
Then I started going to Mexico in the winters and that was fun for a long time. About 6 years ago I got really tired of moving twice a year (and I had a son who needed to stay in one school), and my husband and I decided to stay on the guest ranch all year. Life is funny. Now I love the winters for being quiet and still and I don’t like the summers with too many people around. As a kid I would have never guessed that would have been possible.
Q: You write about the science of energy and a relatively new field called energy medicine. How can kids become aware of energy?
>>>>Just like kids are natural artists until school educates them out of it, kids are naturally aware of energy. Energy shows up for children in stories of magic. I don’t believe, however that kids below the age of 14 should be taught about energy.* Children need a lot of psychic protection and deliberately showing them energy can be too much for them before they are ready.
Teenagers do great learning meditation and entering naturally created altered states. For several years I taught meditation to teenagers and they were easily able to enter naturally created altered states of consciousness. I think it’s because their hearts are very open still.
*NOTE: This is gia’s point of view about teaching energy to those under the age of 14 due to her concern about psychic protection. There are those who teach Reiki to children in different parts of the world. There are also books on it for those called to do so. Reiki is actually a form of meditation and can help children who suffer from anxiety or have trouble in school.
Q: I felt sad today because something I wanted that depended on another person’s cooperation no longer seemed possible despite everything I did to find a way to achieve it. I went through a range of emotions from feeling angry to hopeful as I tried to deal with it. I became sad when nothing worked. If I were a young person, what would you suggest that might help someone like me?
>>>>For starters, if you were a child, you wouldn’t be able to explain yourself that way! I remember as a child getting really frustrated with adults who misused their power just because they got to order us around. They would change the rules to suit them, or that’s the way it seemed. That used to make me so mad I would do “battle” with them. Of course, they always won. What I wish someone had taught me was how to call on angels for protection and for help.
Q: Speaking of angels, many people today are talking about angels, guides, fairies, and changes taking place inside us and all around the earth. Is there a way for young people today to understand all of this?
>>>>Children who are exposed to nature at an early age, naturally know about fairies and nature spirits. Santa Claus is one of the best known nature spirits out there. If there is a strong foundation of connection to the earth, established at an early age through play and joy, this will carry them through a lifetime of being a “grownup” who mostly focuses on work.
The job of children is to BE children. Part of being a child is innocence. Whatever is going on in the world needs to be explained in ways that are appropriate for the developmental stage the child is in. The best way to “teach” children is to show them. You don’t have to talk about recycling to a child… just do it.
Q: What is a soul intuitive?
>>>I am able to see the soul or spirit of a person. That is the part
that existed BEFORE you were born and will continue on for more
adventures AFTER this life. The soul shows me all kinds of amazing
things like what it did before this lifetime and what lessons it wants
to learn during this lifetime. I can then give this information to the
person I’m talking to who for reasons that are a bit complicated to
explain can’t always remember these things herself.
Comment: You sound incredibly imaginative!
Q: If a young person or parents of a young person with unusual abilities are interested in learning more about some of what you talk about here, what would you recommend they do?
>>>Young people with “unusual abilities” don’t recognize themselves as having “unusual abilities.” They either think everyone can do what they do OR they think there’s something wrong with them and that they are weird and don’t fit in.
Reading the great classic stories about children with magic and secret lives such as the Chronicle of Narnia books or Harry Potter can show them how in the muggle world you might be weird but in the magic world you might be a Harry Potter! Parents need to be aware of the challenges of being gifted psychically and show their children simple techniques for shielding themselves such as using a bubble of color.
Often times the unusual abilities show up as “disorders,” such as a child empath or healer who has sensory touch disorder. Understanding both the upside and the downside of unusual abilities can help a parent guide the child into the positive expression of his or her abilities… at the right time.
If you are a young adult of 14 or 15, I would suggest finding a good mentor to help you learn about energy to avoid some of the pitfalls. The best way to find a good mentor is to ask your guides or angels to bring you one and then wait and see who shows up.
Q: There’s a great deal of talk today about the children who are Indigos, Rainbows and Crystals. Is it important for a child to know that they are one of these? What should a parent do if they think they have one of these children?
>>>>Indigos, Rainbows and Crystals are names that adults have used to describe the children that have been born in the last 18 years. These children often remember who they were before they became a human, have special gifts and talents musically or artistically, and also have talents in the intuitive fields such as being telepathic, telekinetic, intuitive and so on.
Parents need to become educated about these children and their special needs because these young people do not fit into our typical education and social structures. Be open to creatively raising these children, following your own intuition about what’s best for them.
Nontraditional schools such as Waldorf, Montessori and home schooling are best options for them. These children have very sensitive energies and having them around a lot of technology (i.e. computers) at an early age is not healthy for them.
Drugging them on ritalin or other “fit in” drugs will cut them off from their essential knowing and will create “lost” adults. On the other hand if parents understand simple energy techniques such as Reiki or Crystalline Consciousness Technique they can use these techniques to help their children, not so much “fit in,” but bridge the gap between their unique gifts and the existing systems that are currently being offered in education and other social structures.
To learn more about energy healing and modalities such as Reiki and Crystalline Consciousness Technique, you can look on this site, or visit sites that offer energy work and other forms of spiritual and personal growth work.
