Healing for Change

We have all had different experiences in this last year of sheltering in place, yet almost all of us are starting to slowly step back out into the world.

Many of us are not used to being around more than a few people at a time, seeing friends face to face, or even being in new spaces such as stores, other people’s homes and cafes.

All of this takes a lot more energy and attention than we are used to. What feels safe now? Our nervous systems are overwhelmed with all the new information. Do you feel more tired than you used to after doing less?

Regular healing sessions during this time can help you reset your nervous system as you acclimate to all the new stimulation. This helps keep you connected to your body and inner guidance.

Being kind to yourself also makes transitions much easier – even when the shift is expansive and positive.

Grounding Is Healing

Standing Barefoot On The Earth

Currently, I am seeing many clients with compromised sixth and seventh chakras. Over the last few months I am finding that these energy centers are not as open as the other five chakras.

The sixth energy center, or third eye chakra, rules perception, intelligence, and visualization. At the top of the head, the seventh chakra is the center of self-transcendence and connection to our highest wisdom.

It is no wonder when these two energy centers are not balanced we feel stuck, disconnected, uninspired, and even depressed.

I have noticed these two chakras open up in my healing sessions as soon as my client becomes grounded. I can feel the difference in a few minutes of holding their feet.

The simple act of helping my clients ground has profoundly affected their sense of well-being and emotional balance.  Sometimes all it takes is one session.

Getting a healing session is, of course, a great way to make sure that you are reground. Yet, if you suddenly feel spacey, out-of-it, or weirdly disconnected, there are simple things you can immediately do to rebalance.

Try standing barefoot on the earth for at least ten minutes. Twenty minutes is better, but I know we don’t always have that kind of time—Check in with your body before and after to see if you notice a difference.

If you can’t get outside, you can try energetically grounding.  Put your attention on the bottoms of your feet and/or the base of your spine, and imagine a grounding cord connecting to the center of the earth. This is a basic grounding technique that is so simple and so effective. It becomes more tangible the more you do it. Try it and see if you notice a difference.

Healing Time

The first thing I do before a healing is write down what time the session begins.

I almost always have no sense of ‘normal’ time during a healing. It’s really wild.

Time is a very fluid, non-linear experience in the healing state.  Sometimes when I first look at the clock after what feels like only ten minutes into a session, I find that it has been over thirty minutes.  Other times I can feel like I have been in an eternal deep state for quite a while and I am sure the session must almost be over – only to look at the clock and discover it has only been fifteen minutes.

Even after so many years of healing, I still find this incredible.

A Healing Image

From the Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot Deck

This is the tarot card that most clearly depicts what I experience in the healing state. Some people might think this is odd, that maybe the Star, or Sun card would be more appropriate.

One of the traditional meanings of Temperance is moderation, and over the years I have read several writers who say Temperance is not their favorite card. I get that. I mean, who wants to moderate anything? Especially after this last year of everything being moderated.

Yet, beyond moderation is balance and harmony. I have written before how I describe the healing state as that place of perfect equilibrium, of the place of ‘suspended enoughness.’ Where the flow of the water between the cups becomes still, and that stillness contains all movement.

According to Rachel Pollack in her book The New Tarot Handbook (Rachel Pollack is a genius, by the way,  and I have a signed copy of this book):

” Notice that what the angel is doing is impossible, since water will not pour at an angle. One meaning of this card is to calmly do something you used to think was beyond your capabilities. The angel appears so peaceful, focused, even unemotional, yet the wings beat so powerfully the picture cannot contain them.” 

Imagery is powerful. Art often opens me up to the next level of what is possible.

Superhuman: The Invisible Made Visible

“… The film ultimately shows that once the invisible worlds are made visible, this attained higher awareness will transform humans into superhumans.” 

– From the 1091 Pictures

I found this documentary very interesting. It presents a series of scientific experiments and demonstrations that gave me many insights into my own healing practice – the work I do every day.

Enjoy!

Healing: A Total Dropping Of Any “Trying”

Below is a testimony from a client.  It beautifully describes that place of not thinking.

“Driving home I was trying to articulate what I felt during our session today. The closest I came was that I felt a deep “relaxation” (for lack of a better term)–a total dropping of any “trying”. You set the intention that I enter fully and completely into the present moment and I think that’s what happened. It was so profound, a space of not even thinking about what I “should” be doing (very rare for me).
Thank you so much, Jeri. You’re an amazing healer and I’m so grateful I get to work with you. I can’t wait for next month!”

Healing: Describing That Place Of Perfect Equilibrium

Sitting In The Mystery

I have always felt the need to write about the altered states of consciousness and subtle realms I experience in my healing practice.

Many healers don’t have this compulsion, and I admit that I think they are better off. Yet, I find writing and verbalizing about the evolution and unfolding of the healing space brings a deeper understanding and clarity to my work.

The initial documentation and descriptions immediately help me to process what just happened in the session. I have also looked back at something I wrote years earlier and realized something I totally missed before. This has been so valuable.

Writing also makes it a lot easier to help clients understand how a healing session may benefit them.  Most people still think energy work is crazy, so I have to know how to talk about the energetic healing process with clarity and confidence.  Finding the perfect words makes everything more tangible and conscious. 

In my book, A Business of Healing,  I wrote about how many practitioners describe the healing space as compassionate. I never felt the word compassion had anything to do with the profound stillness I felt; I always felt that this state was emotionless.

I now describe that place of perfect equilibrium as ‘suspended enoughness.’ That state of mind where there is no impulse to get something, think something, or move in any way. This enoughness is a quiet bliss. When the fullness of the moment is enough.

Being in that state of suspended enoughness is very, very healing.  So today, this is how I describe the deepest state of healing I know—tomorrow – who knows.  Everything is continually changing.

The Healing Spark Of Connection

At this point, I have been doing distance healings for almost a full year.

Lately, I am noticing how powerful the initial connection with my client’s energy field is—that moment when I first click into my client energetically.

Sometimes I can ‘see’ or perceive a flash, or spark, as I feel our energies connect. I really notice it when my eyes are closed. It also doesn’t feel like it is just my energy and my client’s energy – it is a tangible little epicenter. It feels like the joining of limitless energies in that instant of connection.

There was one session in which this spark was all that my client needed. I knew the session was complete in the first 3 seconds of the healing. I confess that I continued the healing; I set an intention to integrate the shift with a chakra connection to lengthen the treatment, but I knew what my client had already received what she truly needed.

When I called her afterward, she was so happy and felt so much better. I asked her as many questions as I could (just to make sure), and she just kept telling me how much more positive she felt and she had so much more energy. She loved it.

The power of connection is so tangible now. All our connections are so profoundly healing. I can’t wait to be able to give and receive hugs again. 🙂

Testimonial: Distance Healing

Energy work can give you access to more energy by allowing your life force to flow freely. I would like to share part of an email my client sent me who experienced this sense of renewal:

“Jeri Lawson is a powerful healer. She offers distance healings via zoom. Her total focus is her client and she essentially disappears. It is miraculous. I personally received several healings from Jeri for an undiagnosed condition. I was just out of energy and at 67, felt like I was nearing the natural end of my life. Through a series of distant healings from Jeri, I have the energy of when I was in my 40s. This took several months to unfold. I am beyond grateful.”

It is important to note here that even though I have been doing this work for over 25 years, we all have the ability to assist others in opening up to a more vital life. I have witnessed students in their first workshop of Healing Touch create deep and profound healing for others in their class.

Energy work is one of the many ways to access our innate and limitless human potential.
