A Mother’s Love Is Like.. 


Yesterday was Mother’s Day. It was a lovely and wonderful day to just reflect on where I started as a mother and where I am now. I spoke to my mother yesterday wishing her a happy Mother’s Day and in our discussion I shared my latest blog post. It segwayed us into a perfect conversation of gratitude for each other.

When you consider what a mother’s love is, it is complex. It is gentle, understanding, nurturing, and allows us space to learn from our own mistakes and express ourselves. A Mother’s love allows time and encourages us to learn and to heal. But do not take for granted a mother’s love. A mother’s love can be fierce! Fierce not only in protection of her children but in being that reality check that we need.

All that that is and encompasses is how I would describe my energy work. It is typically a hands-on process that is ever so sweet and considerate of the individual allowing them the space and time to heal. Recognizing their own weaknesses and strengths and letting the weaknesses become strengths.

It is helping the body become stronger allowing the spirit to enjoy the vessel. It relaxes muscles. It works on the subconscious mind releasing the perceptions others may have imposed or perceptions that have been taken on that do not resonate with the individual any longer.

My energy work takes an individual out of the trauma state and into a state of allowance. It is in that simplicity that people shed their density and oftentimes lose weight! It helps create emotional stability, calming the central nervous system, the digestive system and encouraging all  body systems to work perfectly and harmoniously together! It helps put the individual in touch with their spiritual self and with God, allowing for better intuitive guidance and self reliance.

After a session the individual looks like they are almost weightless. They’ve relaxed not just their physical body but expanded their energetic body so that they feel lighter and yet bigger because they feel they no longer have to conceal themselves to fit in. They allow themselves to be enjoyed and received just as they are and in turn encourage others to do the same. It is amazing what a session can do, shifting someone’s reality because they show up differently and therefore those around them have no choice but to show up differently too!

Mysteries

Mysteries… They happen to us all the time if we choose to be aware. But how or why they happen is part of the wonder of mysteries. By definition, a mystery is “Something strange or not known that has not yet been explained or understood. Difficult to explain is difficult or impossible to understand or explain.” (1)

Lately I have been faced with a lot of amazement and wonder. I have an unconventional, unusual occupation. Typically, it means that I get to meet all different kinds of people from various walks of life who are searching for the same thing: healing. However, as much as someone can say that they are looking forward to healing, how the individual chooses to do so, varies from person to person. That is what tends to be the most mysterious and wondrous  part of my job.

Because individuals are just that, people who come from different cultures, home environments, educational, professional and religious backgrounds, how they process their healing is just as different.

Take for instance, I have a client that when he contacted me, originally didn’t believe in what I did, and was doing it to appease his spouse. I began the healing and noticed that when I shared what I was receiving intuitively regarding his medical condition, it caused heart palpitations. It took me learning that he was better off processing his own healing in whatever form that took, versus me sharing what was coming up as I was working on him.

I recently had a client that after three attempts of making an appointment and rescheduling, finally relinquished and fulfilled her appointment. It was a most cathartic healing for her as she quickly realized why she had resisted for so long. As she was on the massage table, she kept commenting on all the physical changes she was feeling and remarked how she was “blown away.”

And yet I had another healing session where the person could feel and see changes as the session was in process. However, the next day, couldn’t relax enough to take in the session just as it was intended. She had her own expectations of how it should be, so I needed to facilitate that “letting go” over the phone the next day. What is most mysterious to me is the information I get and how it varies for each individual. I help people let go of negative feelings, memories, and effects of abuse.
 
Most recently I had a session that left me mystified. A client called after seeing my brochure elsewhere and scheduled a session. I facilitated some major body work, some became very uncomfortable and as I was doing so I was sharing all the intuitive information I was receiving. A couple days later, she traveled out of state for a few weeks and had had back surgery while she was gone. Upon her return, she made another appointment. This time, I didn’t receive as much information. At the conclusion of the session, she remarked, “I remember that the last session, shortly after laying your hands on me you said ‘You feel broken in half.’ It’s stuck with me.” It turns out that her back surgery was a preventative and she had two steel rods put into her back to prevent her back from essentially, “being broken in half!” Needless to say, I was humbled.

What is wondrous is how the information I get varies by each individual.   How people emotionally process afterwards: some are much calmer and energized, some are emotional and others physically let go, each differs per person per session. It is always a mystery that will unfold as to how much lighter and happier that individual will be after their healing.

Energy Work: First Distance Session

Describing how I am able to do distance sessions really challenges people’s minds.
Most people have at one point or another had a circumstance in which they said to another individual, “I was just thinking about you” as they have received a phone call or bumped into that individual. That seems simple to people and expected. Usually in that case, the person has thought of the other individual several different times to create that “connection.” It is very similar though rudimentary to what I do.
I relate my distance work to that of when the internet was first created. There was dial-up, it was slow and if you were lucky, you got connected to the internet. How I am able to tune in to people is more like a T-1 line. Once I have asked permission and am allowed, I am “connected.” I typically use a picture of the person, as I am very visual, and call their name. and I ALWAYS ask the person’s permission to work on them first and foremost, especially when I am doing it at another person’s request.
A few years ago, I was sitting in my bedroom on my bed and staring at a picture my girlfriend sent me via text of her son. I had no idea if I could do this, but I asked God for permission and to help me. In my mind I called her child by name and told him that I wanted to work on him.
Earlier that day, I received a call from his mother, and as we were catching up on what had been happening in both of our lives, she told me her son was just diagnosed with RSV, a respiratory illness that can be especially fatal to children. 
So there I was sitting there asking my friend’s son for his permission to let me work on him. I was not sure if I “had” him, but I sensed and “felt” this energy kept wanting to bounce up and down. He seemed so happy that I was asking to work on him that he continued to bounce. I had to explain to him that I couldn’t work on him unless he stopped bouncing around. All of a sudden , just as simple as that, I “felt” his energy stop bouncing, and he quickly lied down. He did what I asked of him and I began my treatment which typically lasts almost an hour. As I was working on his body I began to cry, but it was not my sadness I was releasing, I was well aware it is his. 
Since this was the first time I had worked on anyone via distance, I wondered if there would be any way I would know when I was done. Then there was a sense of completion, a sense of release that happened that gave me the confidence that we were both done. I felt him at peace. I closed the session by thanking him for allowing me to help him. I always feel that is important, as we are truly equally blessed to give as to receive. I sent his mother a text letting her know that I did get to work on him, but I didn’t get a reply.
I let a week’s time pass and I called his mother. I asked how her son was doing. “Great!” she says, as if I shouldn’t have expected any differently. “Ok,” I say, “I’ve gotta ask you a question, does your son like to bounce a lot?” “Yes.” “Did he poop a lot after the session?” “As a matter of fact, he did! The next day my boyfriend remarked, ‘Oh this is bad.’ and then the next time he said, ‘Oh, this is worse!’ ”
Letting go of the things that have impacted us and are toxic to us usually manifest as a physical letting go. And so some people may feel their body shift, either in reduction of pain, ease of use of their body, or even loosing weight as they release their “heaviness” or “density.” Or as described above, their body physically releases in the form of forcing the person to go to the bathroom. Either way, the individual feels “lighter” as they begin to resonate and recognize their own density and let that go.

Hands-on Energy Work

People react differently when I share what I do. When they hear energy work most people automatically think Reiki. When I explain that Reiki is hands-off and that I am hands-on, they shift their thought process to massage or some form of tissue manipulation. I do neither. I literally lay my hands on an individual and I “know” what needs to be done. I am the conduit to their healing only facilitating what their body is telling me to do. For most lay people, this seems absurd and/or impossible. But we all communicate through our bodies, hence the term body language.

When I do my energy work, I may be working on the individual’s physical body, but I am helping them release their emotional, psychological, spiritual and physical issues that have caused their body pain.

It seems rather simple to me what I do, though not readily accepted or understood by others. Simply put, we are all mass and energy combined. Affect one, you affect the other.

I am often humbled by what transpires in my healing sessions. Although it would seem to a layman that I could work on different people and tell them the same things about their body, we all have different experiences and through those experiences we process differently and hold onto things that don’t serve us and have different reasons for doing so.

As much as I can try and explain what it is that I do, it is a difficult translation and not often understood. I always begin each session with a silent prayer, making sure that there is no transference of energy between me and the client or vice versa. It serves neither one of us to have that happen. I’ve had that happen in my own healings where the practitioner has transferred their energy and I end up processing not only what I am working on but theirs. that has left me in a state of turmoil. I run energy, I do not use my own, that’s why there is no transference.

I recently worked on someone who had never had energy work done. I was at home getting ready for the session, I was preparing my meal and as I sat down to think of what I wanted to drink, I was craving an alcoholic beverage. I NEVER drink before a session, I want to be clear of mind, energized and giving the purist session my client can receive. But I really wanted an alcoholic beverage…then I went to change clothes for session, and noticed as I typically want to shower and put essential oils on specifically for the session, I didn’t even want to leave the house. All I really wanted to do was stay home.

My client sent me text with a possible cancellation as she was delayed due to a business call that could take up to several hours. As we spoke she told me that all she really wanted to do is be at home and have a big glass of wine. This “information” often transpires as I prepare for a session, minus the wanting to have an adult beverage.

I get “hits” about the individual and how the information comes to me is different per client and depends on how they process information. In other words, if someone is a visual learner, I get more visual images, or if they are auditory that is how I get my information. That is why each session is different for each person and even each session is different for the same person.

So when I begin the hands-on session, it is just that, I lay my hands on the individual and let the energy run. I often find that although some people are asking for a healing, often they are in resistance and are unaware of it. So I ask them to focus on something whether it be music, a crystal, breath or whatever facilitates their letting go and receiving.

Depending on the individual, I share what “comes up.” To gives you and example, this client wanted to rid herself of anxiety and wanted to feel grounded. I was at her feet and what “came up” was that she doesn’t always feel safe, and needed to feel safe in order for the session to be beneficial to her.

Later in the session as I was at her head, I “felt and sensed” that she sometimes didn’t feel her feet. When I asked her about that, she said she couldn’t feel her feet at that very moment. I took a breath and asked (in my head) why she would feel that way. It became clear to me that she needed to stand on her own and she had been afraid to do so. So I verbally cleared that from her. And then it became apparent to me that she need to feel the “twinkle in her toes.” When I shared that, she became very emotional. That’s what happens during my sessions, its not just about running energy, its about the energetic vibrations and perceptions we choose to hold on to that no longer serve us that I facilitate in helping the clients become aware of and help release. Words hold those energetic vibrations, positive and negative and it is freeing when we release our perceptions regarding those and in turn it makes us feel lighter.

At the end of the session, I reminded my client to take it easy the following day. People release and process the session differently. In other words, some become rather emotional, others literally are physically letting go and are continuously using the restroom as their bodies release what no longer serves them. Yet some people (typically those who do energy work or who have worked on themselves throughout the years) have none of those reactions and are more at peace and energized and are able to go throughout their days without those effects.
