I have been searching for years to find the words that describe what I experience as a healer during a Reiki and Healing Touch session. I started to describe it in this post: A Healer’s Experience Of A Healing Session
I have referred to the space I hold, or connect with, or become, as the Healing Space, the Healing State, sometimes Sacred Space, depending on my mood of the day and who I am working with. Nothing ever felt accurate, or specific enough.
While on my recent forced sabbatical because of a wrist and shoulder injury, I had time to read. The first book I pulled off my shelf was Adyashanti’s The Way Of Liberation and I have been carrying it around since. I shouldn’t even say I am reading it, I just look at a few paragraphs and then sit in my chair absorbing. I am absorbing the book.
In this amazing little paperback, Adya writes about the Inner Revolution, the process that happens after the discovery of one’s true nature. He describes this inner revolution as “the birth of a living, fluid intelligence.”
That is exactly what I experience in the continually changing, healing space of my sessions that is different every time, for every person:
A Living, Fluid Intelligence
Page 37. I recommend that everyone immediately get The Way Of Liberation and start absorbing right away.
I will confess at this point that I have not discovered my True Nature. I am still identifying as a physical body and an ego that likes to describe and name things. It is interesting and a bit confusing to note that somehow I have skipped an important step in Adayshanti’s process of Liberation, the awaking part. Awaking must not be chronological.
I now refer to this healing state as the Fluid Living Intelligence or FLI mode. I hold, become, or go into FLI mode in my energetic sessions.
Healing is a mystery that deepens with every session. This mystery reveals how multi-dimensional and precious our human experience is. My ego finds it very exciting to discover the words that best express it.
