And so it begins....
I just had my first session with an amazing participant in the project who I will call Pearl* and I am riding high. It felt like a usual distant session but with more excitement because I know that we have several more meetings. I am excited to see what we will uncover and what we can dispell.
The sessions always begins prior to the call. I like to get a feel for their energy so that I know how to approach them. For Pearl I could sense a lot of anxiety but there was also a sense of calm and safety. I thought that was an interesting combination. She later confirmed that anxiety is almost like a default state for her. In communicating with her I did feel a sense of calm with her even though I could feel a sense of racing below the surface. Her mind, her heart both on overdrive but she is used to it.
Pearl has previously been diagnosed as being Bi-polar. She experienced 2 psychotic breaks during high stress period times of her life. At one point she was on 8 different meds. She is currently off her meds and feels pretty stable. During these psychotic breaks she had visions of dragons and at a different time heard voices telling her to do "horrible" things. I was excited to hear about the dragons and took a mental note to further explore the voices she heard at a different time.
As I read her energy I felt directed to what could be called her root chakra. I first saw the color pink and then a deep indigo as I let the energy flow from my hands. I saw lots of swirling and I could feel that I wasn't alone. We talked about financial security at first, but then as I noticed I was giving her my plant prescription I realized there were also mother issues happening. She confirmed that she hasn't had communication with her mother for sometime. I often notice that the relationship one has with their mother can closely be tied to their financial security.
I allowed the session to bounce all over the place in efforts to dampen the terrain and lay a foundation. It was like weaving a blanket large enough to create a strong sense of security for what may happen in the following sessions. I wanted her to know intuitively that we are on the brink of something amazing. I kept the energy high as I worked to dismantle limiting beliefs that she might of held. We both had two worlds going at once; her mind going, my words flowing, her calm showing, and my energy grounding.
