For me, I see more than a person; I experience a soul. When a connection is made soul-to-soul, a sacred space is created for movement of spiritual energy so that a new balance or re-balancing can be facilitated.
365+ Grateful Project entry 555:
The father of a girl who has been non-verbal for almost 4 months thanked me for doing more in 5 meetings of ‘ice cream therapy’ what two sets of expert therapists (one of whom helped my older daughter) hadn’t managed to do in weeks of expensive counseling.
I pondered on it awhile and realized something: I never regarded her as a patient. She has never been a case for me and I never considered her situation as a mental disorder.
To me, she is just a girl. A friend. Another human being who is stuck and needs a helping hand from someone who understands what she’s about and what she’s going through.
I suppose this is the advantage one has for being what is referred to as a ‘healer.’ For me, I see more than a person; I experience a soul. When a connection is made soul-to-soul, a sacred space is created for movement of spiritual energy so that a new balance or re-balancing can be facilitated.
I was actually depressed only hours before I had my meeting with her. Recent deaths of loved ones, along with the inevitable triggering of old memories/past trauma, have lately combined with post-cancer depression that can occur at the culmination of treatments.
Fortunately, I was able to compose myself and we ended up having a particularly nice time. I’d been working out at the gym all morning and hadn’t expected a cold turn in the weather…so I didn’t get myself ice-cream this time but she did.
On the way back home after our ‘ice cream club,’ in which we try the various flavors of Korean shaved snow ice at a food stall in an Asian supermarket, I realized that I, too, felt good.
I remember years ago when I was a professional massage therapist, who always ended up performing energy healing work as well…sometimes, I would go in to work while feeling quite low, due to my long struggle with clinical depression. My client, nevertheless, would, indeed, feel better; but, furthermore, I would end up feeling better also, afterwards.
For me, it’s always been clear that, if you tap into the divine energy or higher power what-have-you when doing healing work, that positive energy, which helps the client (a.k.a. ‘healee) goes through you and therefore works on you, too.
