Sometimes the work I do happens in the quiet moments when nobody else is around. Sometimes a client’s energy lingers in my energy field waiting for this opportunity so the work can continue. I’m usually not expecting them. I sit still to reflect, soaking up this quiet space, closing my eyes to rest. In that moment they appear, eager to show me what needs to happen next. I just watch the images that present themselves, careful not to control or persuade. My job is to observe and gently ask questions.
“What do you want to show me?” I asked the young woman I worked on earlier in the day when her face appeared. A skeleton lingered as she took a step forward. It wasn’t eager to separate. Nothing happened for a few moments. I watched, feeling impatient. “What do you need?” I finally asked. I saw my client set foot on an escalator taking her downward. The skeleton stayed behind. I watched my client become more relaxed as the separation increased. Then I turned my attention to the skeleton. It was starting to lift and float upward. I asked for healing for all involved as the vision evaporated, and just like that it was over.
I like to get solid confirmation from clients about their experience except this usually doesn’t happen. Not everyone is open to hearing about skeletons, spiders, or other Harry Potter-like creatures leaving their energy field. Sometimes they get scared. That’s not my intention. Sometimes they get hung up on the images and want to know; who, what, when, where, why, and how? I don’t have those answers, and it doesn’t really matter. What matters to me is that there is some level of improvement. I don’t often get that kind of confirmation mostly because I never bring it up. I trust the process of healing in all of its shapes and sizes, cherishing those quiet moments when the unexpected suddenly transforms.
