One of my clients left her accounting job five years ago and opened a healing practice. In the first year, she had as much work as she had time for.
“When I wake up in the morning I am so excited to go to my healing space,” she told me. She has definitely found the work that she loves.
She still comes for healings and breathwork with me to stay in balance. She refers to me as her “mentor,” even though she has accomplished in five years what took me well over twenty. 🙂
Before her sessions, we don’t talk about healing techniques. We most often talk about how to stay grounded as the paradigm of what happens in our healing practice collides with the paradigm of “real” life. How physically and emotionally complex it is to leave the magic of our healing space to wait in line at the local Walgreens. Or listen to the news.
We all experience this paradigm clash. After experiencing the deep peace and energetic support of a healing or breathwork session, reentering the outside world can be noticeably uncomfortable – physically, emotionally and energetically.
Yet, every time we do it, we are creating a higher state of consciousness for ourselves, and everyone around us. Just by holding a peaceful coherent frequency in our chaotic world, we are creating great healing for our planet.
My conversations with my colleague have reminded me that taking time to rebalance and connect with our deepest wisdom is really quite a radical act in these politically crazy times. The grounding, peace, and the unconditional love we reconnect with internally we also take back into our daily life and share with our family, friends, loved ones – even with those we don’t quite love yet.
Self-care is radical.
