'Enlightened. Today was my first experience of the magic that is Josephine McGrail. I spent two enlightening hours in her care. I cannot believe the connection she found to my internal turmoil and how she managed to read me like she was best friends with my soul. Maybe she is. I can’t wait for my next awakening. Words cannot express my gratitude'
"When I met Josephine and her Yin Yoga and Meditation class 3 years ago, I was in a transformative break through phase in my life. I remember really well the first two things that stood out instantly; her angelic calming voice and how ‘free’ she feels when she walks in the room, when she fills the room. It didn’t take long until she became my safe spot and soon after I wanted to experience 1-1 Healing time with her.
I was completely disconnected from my own self in every sense, especially from my femininity because back then I was fully consumed by my emotions and lost connection with my spiritual soul. In her beautiful, cosy, sacred place she first listened to me and what was going on for me, then she took me through an unforgettable spiritual journey with guided meditation, candles, aromatherapy scents, crystals, Danish prayers, drums. There she was, with that angelic voice of hers, she found the way in to my broken pieces. For those who haven’t been to a healing session, this may sound surreal and hard to picture but when she was playing the drum in such a ceremonial way, i felt like my soul arose and lifted out of my physical body. There was one moment where i looked at my physical body from above, through the eyes of my soul. It was an undescribable experience really. Then she gently brought me back to the ‘real’ physical world.
It was an overwhelming experience that I needed to process gently. One thing i want to share with everyone is, no magic happens on its own without effort and care. I continued with Josie’s Yin Yoga and Meditation classes every week, did the homework she gave me after the healing session and had another healing session, as well as worked on a few things on my own. So there is no immediate magical change right after the session. But over time you get to notice how Josie unblocks something and allows the transformation to unfold.
As Josie always says in her classes, ‘You are exactly where you’re supposed to be’ when you are with Josie" Ezgi Erdal
"I recently discovered that Josephine has a special gift for helping others through healing and provides one-to-one tailored and confidential treatment. As I’ve been struggling this year with acute anxiety, sickness and feeling very out of sync, I immediately asked for help and attended a private session which resulted in me having a feeling of complete relaxation, feeling safe and grounded to the earth. A weight was lifted - I was able to let go of negativity and feel stronger. The session was amazing. Josephine has also taught me techniques to help manage the anxiety and has been checking in with me to see how I’m going. Following my session I’ve had 14 days with no morning sickness and getting a little stronger in managing the anxiety which is a massive step forward. Josephine is an amazing healer - an angel and I am so grateful to have found her. I’d recommend her to anyone needing help."J.A.F
“I met Josephine through a Nordic Sisters event earlier this year and her approach really resonated with me. I found out that she also offered energy healings. Since then I have done two healing sessions. Each had different aspects but both were equally powerful healings. She manages to take you deep into what needs clearing, leaving you feeling a sense of calm, stillness and grounding” Alyson Smith
'I had my very first healing session with Josephine over the phone, in the comfort of my own home......Being gently guided in meditation, I found myself surrounded by light, my soul being awakened with a spiritual shower, I walked away feeling greatly enlightened with a much stronger spiritual sense of purpose. Josephine is such a kind and generous soul, I am ever grateful to have crossed paths with her. Her healing sessions and Meditations serves my higher self well. Her work is so great I was actually recommended to her by a good friend of mine' Jazzmin Fletcher
'I met Josie in a yoga class and instinctively connected with her on a different and spiritual level. This is where I knew I had to give her healing sessions a chance - and oh my am I happy I did so! It is her openness, sensitivity and honesty that drew me to dig deeper to explore other parts of myself. On top of that she will put in her best efforts to get you on your path, which is all due to the incredible knowledge and expertise she has. If you’re talking about taking a leap of faith and just going with the flow, see how these sessions can help you open your eyes and become someone you always wanted to be' Sophia Keijzer
'It was a very positive experience for me. I feel very positive and energised and Im hoping for more happy sessions like these' Meenal
"Josephine it was such a wonderful and fantastic experience. It was in vivid green and blue. I felt how my energy rose up my spine and expanded. And afterwards a huge amount of pain was released. Such a deep experience. Thank you very much" Araceli Dent
" I chose to have the healing today because of some deep rooted feelings that I had been carrying around self worth, self acceptance, trust and forgiveness. I was made to feel completely at ease before the session, we spoke about particular things that I wanted to work on and crying was encouraged! The healing itself was beautiful and personalised I was made to feel safe and secure throughout. Afterwards there was an oppertunity to explore the journey, from both of our perspectives, and I've felt a deep sense of calm and peace since."
Many, many thanks Josephine for guiding me into what I am sure is just the beginning of a healing process for not just myself but others too" Lucy Ariana.
"Amazing Josie! Didn't really know what to expect because the first session was so good. But after 5 minutes being in your presence I felt really, really better. Also the journey this time organically took me to the people I headed to forgive. And it was very natural no forcing the healing process, and thats how the magic works. Thank you" Lucy Ariana .
"Strong and powerful imagery- such a beautiful experience! Felt excited and light. Saw my sister and saw years of weight/pressure/expectations leave my body. Felt need for inner confidence and power. My friend was with me! Feel like I went to find my purpose but I cannot do this without inner confidence" Imogen Riddick.
"This was my second healing session with Josephine and it was just as magical, although totally different, as the first one. We started by talking through how I'd been feeling since the last session and also what things were happening in my life at the moment. The guided visualisation was completely organic and individual to me. Josephine picked up on areas where I needed love and encouragement and I felt an overwhelming sense of peace and contentment afterwards. Knowing that each session is different and completely individual to you and your needs is just one way you are made to feel safe and special. Josephine has a wonderful way of making sure you feel understood and valued each and every time."
"- Extremely relaxing during the session. .
- I was able to drift away and be in a calm place between awake and asleep..- Instant good feeling through my body after..- I have noticed a feeling of being weightless and a lot calmer over the days following.- Destressed and a strong sense of where I want to go and what I want to do..- Get a feeling of a fresh start.Thank you so much for the time you spent with me I truly appreciate it. You are very gifted xx"

"Josephine McGrail began her house clearing, or more accurately her house healing, by asking me to write a story for my house – a new story of what I wanted it to become. I am used to setting intentions for my life, but the idea of creating one for my home seemed strange. I trusted Josie completely, though. Having known her as a caring and powerful yoga teacher, I had experienced how her work gently but firmly helping us to face the shadow self had brought in the bright light of transformation.
Stale, even bad energy hangs around in dirty, dark crowded places in ourselves, but also in our houses, it seems. Mine had plenty of shadows. It needs somewhere to hide, shrinking from the light. Josie lightly pointed out that the pile of carpentry under my bed might not be bringing me the best night-time calm, as she almost danced around the house. Gesturing at a photo of my ex here and a cluttered corner there, she was like a magician creating change and magic as she walked.
Josie's main tool was her drum, which she beat joyfully and instinctively as she traversed my house and garden, ending with an invocation to the skies. I followed her, slightly confused but mostly entranced. Together we formed a mini pageant that so delighted me I was oblivious to any attention from my neighbours. The vibration of the drum created a clearing that appeared to lead to a big shift of the feel of the space, but it was not the only instrument in Josie's bag of tricks. It included wild herbs, thoughtfully picked and brought back from a recent trip to Spain especially for the purpose and some beautiful stones she felt inspired to bring me.
How often do we give our homes love or attention? We may attend to its physical, immediate needs by fixing a leaking pipe or painting a wall, but how often do we show it gentleness, a quiet focus or an abstract tending? If our homes are a reflection of ourselves, I quickly realised, with quiet horror, that mine had been severely neglected. My house, like me was crying out for some internal breathing space and was in dire need of some love.
When Josie had got me to write a love letter to my house – a statement of intent, of what I wanted it to be and to bring in but also what I wanted to get rid of, I was surprised. Surprised not only at some of the things I wrote but also at how healing it felt to put my desires for the place I called home into words and somehow into physical reality. The whole process felt like a house clearing of the metaphysical rather than the physical, of the psychic rather than the actual space.
As part of the home healing, I read the words of my story on the steps of my house. Standing there on the threshold, speaking my wishes like some kind of prayer felt both humbling and empowering. And this is part of the wonder of what Josie does – she helps you, as all good healers, to participate in the process so that you and her create the healing together.
This is generous and also clever: long after she was gone I felt the force of what she had created with me, and deep confidence that I could continue this work, this process myself. I am thankful to Josie to have learnt that just as we can constantly reinvent and reimagine ourselves, we can continue to reinvent the spaces we live in – with attention and love. Importantly, just as we can heal our bodies, minds and souls, we can heal our homes – and indeed perhaps even have a duty to do so" By Jane Egginton
"This was my first session and I chose to speak about some of the deaths in my family or close persons to me.
This session was amazing, I never knew what to expect but found myself in a position where I was alone in a dark cave sort of environment - looking around for people and trying to figure out which was to go.
I was cold, scared and alone, I could hear my deep breaths, see my scared eyes and feel the coldness!
After a little while I could feel myself getting a deeper understanding of where I was and felt that this was also touching base with my fear of the dark.
I did after a while see some light coming through and this looked like an escape from the darkness and to show that there is nothing to be scared of.
I had to climb through this dark cave and finally I reached outside of it and into complete light and brightness.
I could feel the warm sun and could see myself smile mug and skipping with joy!
During the session, whilst Josephine was doing her energetic cleansing on me, she sucked out something and as she blew into my stomach I felt a massive blast of heat!
As if I was being recharged with something and I felt this blast through my body.
I left this session feeling lightheaded, cleansed and did have a little headache but did definitely feel different in a good way.
I was very much looking forward to my next lesson.
This session we spoke about my partners mum and how abusive she is towards me.
In this session I did feel a little distracted, I think due to the stress the mum was putting me under I did feel quite tense.
Eventually I was relaxed!
During the session I came across 2 maybe 3 white horses, beautiful large white horses galloping towards me and hugging me with hero beautiful silky skin.
It’s as if they were reassuring me and comforting me and confirming to me that all will be ok and I am loved :)
There was a point during this session where we cut ties with the mum, I took a scissor and cut the tie, her face was very shocked and as if she couldn’t believe that I had finally done it.
For years I have put up with her talking to me horribly and disrespecting me and now it’s time to say and show enough is enough.
This made me feel very confident and gave me more strength to fulfil this and carry it out.
I left this session ensuring that I do what is right for me as if I don’t want to do something or talk to someone or simply be around someone then I don’t have to.
Thank you so much Josephine, you are such a beautiful soul and an amazing friend and I love you dearly and really hope we can do more sessions some time soon :)
Thank you for helping me through these times, I honestly feel like a different person and feel like I am going back to being me xxxx"
"Reasons for having the healing: curious about wellness, how to find relaxation, living busy life, in a big city, looking for ways to 'unplug' and stay healthy in mind and body.
How you felt during and after the healing:
During the healing I felt held by Josie's guided meditation, I felt like I could trust her, so I relaxed and followed where she led me, it felt nice to have someone else lead my mind and bring it to a beautiful place. I felt strengthened by the assurance that my myself and my own mind could fine the right place, like I should trust my intuition. I enjoyed the chants and noises Josie did, they were gentle, didn't feel alarming (I was worried they might) her voice is very pure and it enhanced the experience. The session felt like it went by very quickly. (About 35 minutes).
Afterwards I felt calm, relaxed, I felt very good! I had a very busy day straight afterwards though, running around a lot, with work/dinner commitments after, which I regretted because that I felt like that didn't let me have enough time to absorb the full benefit of the healing.
Thank you again Josie"

"I have healing for relaxation and balance. I feel your treatment alleviates anxiety and restores calm. I love the strength of the oils and the music you use transcends me to another place and sometimes I even fall asleep. I defintely feel calmer and restored after the treatment and as you know the best thing is your facial massage you seem to do it better than anyone else. I love it. I think you use the right pressure and know exactly the points to pursue and I think your voice is also very pleasant and calming and contributes well to our sessions: I love the way you say the word heart!!!
You are a good practitioner that i would recommend." By Ilana Taub
