When I say I am proud of the people I am working with, it comes from the deepest place in my heart. Pride isn't the best way to describe it even though my chest feels so full. I am grateful.
2nd Session with Ginger
Ginger is a cool lady. She has a hippie in the city vibe and I love hearing the experience in her voice. Late last week she treated me with an audio recording original poem. It was a part of her homework and hearing it gave me chills. She had an eventful week involving an intense panic attack, a brief stint in the hospital due to heart issues, and even a breakup. When she told me, nothing flinched. If she could see my smile on the other end I wonder what she would have thought. I was excited for her. She went through a pretty dramatic time and came out of it. I made sure to point that out to her. In her session we talked a lot about love. I was focused in her heart center for the session. It felt like it had been recently burst open and there was a major excavation. It looked like a cavity or a canyon with red and darker colors. I felt the energy flow through my hands into her heart and as we talked I felt the area slowly getting clear. We got so caught up in the conversation that I didn't realize the hour was up until I felt the energy no longer flowing, I then looked at the clock and realized it had been an hour. I love how that works. She does guided meditations so I encouraged her to create on for my funeral prescription....actually it is her homework, including going further with part last weeks time travelling homework. May Ginger do it all in Radical Love!
2nd Session with Raccoon
It is only fitting to have a session where you talk endlessly about death when you are working with a Shaman. And what a great time it was! We talked a lot about learning to go through the grieving process with the events in our lives. She said her homework gave her the courage to make space for herself. How awesome is that? Our session was really a chatty session. We learned a bit about each other and bonded a bit over the joys and wonders of the relationships between mothers and daughters. Mostly the theme of our session was about simple joys. Sometimes we think of heaven as this ultimate paradise full of joy only to be experienced after we have made our transition. I asked her to consider the moments that we find joyous with the intent to possibly see why we choose to have this human experience full of contrast. Somehow I managed to use a Korean Drama (You Who Came From the Stars) in this session as an example of enjoying the simple moments. She shared a bit about her personal life and a relationship she was exploring. Since her daughter was coming into town I told her I would let her daughter handle the straight talk and I would just send the energy over. Overall she felt really clear in her energy. She informed me that she felt good and replenished. Her homework was to note at least 7 things or moments she finds enjoyable.
3rd Session with Pearl
This week I started to begin to address some of the challenges she brought up and that I observed from our previous two sessions. In the session with Raccoon, she said that these sessions will be like peeling away the layers and I agree with her. So with Pearl I began the process more consciously. Before the session I found myself getting two separate bags of chips to munch on to ground myself. I suddenly started to understand her a bit. From there I started to write a list of foods for her to try to help her ground and let go of some of the weight she was carrying: root vegetables, ginger, and apple cider vinegar. Pearl is an empath and the challenge for a lot of empaths is learning to distinguish their feelings from others and learning how to work through their emotions. Exercise is very helpful in that.The storyteller in me came out as we navigated the tapestry of her life, well when is she ever not present. Sometimes I am surprised how the things that I have done in the past can help someone else. I find that with Pearl her challenges are the basic ones, finance, work, family, and health, but I also see that they can be easily ameliorated as she begins to step in her power...And she is very powerful. Because of this, I will keep on pushing her to be more creative. Beautifully she seems just as eager to do so and wonderfully I know how to help her through if she feels a block along the way. She told me she finally got her name for her spirit guide and I was so excited for her. I called her a witch. I want her to be okay with words like "witch" and "crazy" so that she feels free to be who she is. Her homework was to create a spell without any outside help.
2nd Session with The Wiz
After the first session with The Wiz I knew that if we didn't work to go within, we were going to continue to bounce around without ever getting to the root of our work together. We started later than the scheduled time and I found myself unusually subdued. Prior to his session I only wanted to relax and listen to a really mellow song. It all made sense when the session started because it was my way of bringing him down so that I could guide him through the meditation I had planned. We chatted casually for about 15 minutes before the energy started to flow within me. Once it did, I began to prepare him for the meditation. I put on my red shoes, turned off the lights, and took him on a journey within himself. He ended up on a stage. He described feeling so much love and a feeling of connectedness to the audience. I found it interesting that even though he is a musician he never said he was carrying an instrument while on stage. I guided him to explore the environment more. He took that opportunity to embrace the crowd. We stayed in the crowd for a while. He then invited important people to him into the experience. I found this to be the most fascinating because this was when he started to gain very important wisdom. Throughout his session I saw so much purple. I saw a purple haze over everything he was experiencing. When I asked him what colors he saw, he said red and orange. Later he said he was seeing purple as well. When he got what he came for, he went back to his starting point. I usually guide people through a grounding process after the meditation to anchor the experiences and to make sure they are balanced. Because he is a very airy person, I decided to work with his nature and create an entirely different grounding process using the sky as part of his foundation. Purple rain also was a part of it. His journey was all about opening and nurturing his creativity. I was happy to hold the space for him to begin to solidify how his passion for music and creativity shapes and unfolds in his life. From the meditation I think we both felt the universality of music and how it connects us to greater truths of who we are. It was a very calm yet powerful session. His homework last week was to create an original song. As I listened to it, I felt a tingly vibration in my throat. It was very healing. His homework is to do the meditation coupled with the grounding process again and write what happens. I also gave him a list of songs to listen to throughout the week.
