Unwinding and Physical Release During a Healing Session

Sometimes when people begin to relax on my healing table, they start to release blocked energy in their body with twitching, rhythmic muscle spasms, shaking and kicking. These movements are their body’s innate process of rebalancing and are very positive and healing.

In the last few months, I have had several new clients who were embarrassed by these physical reactions. These involuntary movements can feel so disconcerting that many people with this tendency stay away from yoga classes, meditation retreats, healing sessions and other places in which they may relax and start to spasm in public.

People who can release in this way have a gift! In cranial-sacral therapy, this is called unwinding, and there are many healing modalities that focus on this type of release. In my experience as a Reiki and Healing Touch Practitioner, a series of healings will usually dissipate the energy in the physical body and the spasms will significantly reduce, if not completely fall away, as the biofield comes into alignment. Every person is different, of course, and the rate of healing depends on the level of imbalance and trauma you have to heal. Check out this video “How the Body Releases Trauma and Restores Goodness” by Peter Levine. The body can let go of deep trauma through movement.

Once a person is comfortable with unwinding, it can be done at home, kind of like a meditation. I had a client who often readjusted her hip/leg issue during her healing sessions with me and can now unwind and adjust herself on her own. She unwinds in bed before going to sleep at night and feels grounded and peaceful afterward. Another client who was once so freaked out by her body’s tendency to spasm she couldn’t relax in public at all, now unwinds at home and find it releases her anxiety. Unwinding is emotionally healing.

Below is a short YouTube video of a woman having a gentle unwinding:

Here is another video of unwinding in a classroom situation with Joshua Shelan. I am not familiar with his healing work, but this is a good video of a person involuntarily releasing through body movement.

Unwinding is a vast topic, and I have quite a few stories about how it has shown up in my healing practice. The important thing I want to emphasize in this short post is that the ability to release in this way is extraordinarily healing. Some people have it more than others.

If you are someone who has this gift of unwinding, but feels self-conscious about it, I invite you to get a healing, breathwork or cranial-sacral session. Learn to use your amazing healing ability.

Healing: Our Inner World Changes Our Outer World

 A few weeks ago I was talking with a client before her Clarity Breathwork session. I was checking in to see if she had noticed any changes in her life after her last breathe. The first thing she said was “Music sounded so amazing for three days after that last session.”

Breathwork, Reiki and Healing Touch treatments align and organize our energy fields. When we are centered and grounded, we experience our world differently. Our perception of music, pitch, and acoustics can become more sensitive when we are in balance.

I realized this many years ago in my healing practice.

Before every healing or breathwork session, I organize the room and set the energy specifically for each client – as if preparing for a ceremony.

I select the sheets, pillows, water glass, and sage that each client prefers. The temperature of the room is important; Some people like a warmer healing space, others like a cooler room. Music is always a large part of this process and is usually playing when the client walks in.

I cannot tell you how many times I have started a healing session, and as soon as I ground into the session I would suddenly become aware that the music was WAY TOO LOUD.

It was startling. How could I have set the music level at such a high volume? I had been so careful. This happened over and over. I am much more sensitive to sound when in the healing state. Clients often have the same experience.

I have always found this fascinating. Our perception of the world shifts as we come into balance. Our inner world changes how we hear our outer world. You can hear it.

Regular Reiki Sessions; A Commitment To Living Consciously

One of my clients started a regular self-care practice this year that includes exercise, eating well and a monthly Reiki session. He is committed to staying healthy, balanced, and emotionally centered.

Watching his journey over the last ten months has reminded me how supportive regular healing sessions can be. Each of his treatments has gone deeper than the previous healing, bringing him profound insights and creative ideas.

A few months ago he was experiencing some internal conflict. He had to make a decision, and while his mind was saying one thing, his body was telling him another. Something was holding him back from what he thought he should do; what he thought was expected of him. The thought of disappointing the people around him was extremely stressful. He also felt like he was being selfish.

His session that month came at a perfect time. His healing provided him with a safe and peaceful space to release the fears and emotions that were keeping him from connecting with his deepest intuition, his own inner guidance. He felt so balanced and grounded afterward, that the decision he had to make was obvious and ultimately beneficial for all.

My client’s commitment to living consciously is giving him the clarity to manifest the creative, authentic and purposeful life he always dreamed of living.

Healing: The Space To Let Go

Are you afraid that if you start getting in touch with all the emotions you have in this moment, you might fall apart? That it would hurt too much? That if you became fully aware of your feelings you might never stop crying?

Last week was a rough one for California. Many of us are still spinning. Even if we were lucky enough to not have someone close to us in the direct path of the wildfires, the smoke in the air was a constant, tangible reminder of the tragedy that was raging out of control so close by.

Holding all those emotions back is exhausting. It takes so much energy to keep grief sorrow, anger, and fear inside. Once you give yourself the space and the time to let go of whatever you might need to release at this time, you will feel less fatigued and more capable of coping.

A Healing or Breathwork session is the perfect place to get the support you need to clear any emotions that are blocking your physical body, your life, your healing, and your experience of being fully present for all that is in this moment.

Give yourself the space to let go.

Community: We Are All Connected

I mentor other practitioners in healing my community.

I am also mentored by this same community.

Over the last few years, I have been supporting (coaching, mentoring, talking extensively on the phone) with other healing practitioners from all over the country who are dealing with challenging issues and questions concerning their healing practice. Often these healers have questions about working with clients and friends going through chemotherapy and radiation treatments. I have also helped many practitioners launch their healing business, sharing what marketing and organizing strategies have been working for me.

When I have questions about medical procedures my clients are going through, there are several nurses and a few doctors I have called from this same community who have walked me through the possibilities my client may be facing. This has been extremely helpful for me over the years. I have yoga teachers, hospital and oncology administrators, healers who are exceptionally sensitive to energy and just some very wise and experienced practitioners who I can call and ask anything I need to know or process. As I am writing this, I realize the hospital administrators I know have been a tremendous resource.

I am so supported by my healing community.

Below is an email I recently received from another energy practitioner who had emailed me with questions about her client with neuropathy (numbness in the hands and feet):

“I wanted to give you an update on the client with Neuropathy, since you were so helpful in telling me what has worked for you.

On his first visit, I did lots of clearing, as you recommended. I don’t usually do much clearing, so I made a point to do more.  I also did LOTS of just holding his feet and hands – bringing warmth and healing through intention. 

He called a few days later and said that he could feel his feet on the ground for the first time in a few years. He still had some pain, but was excited to have a difference and be able to “feel” with his feet.  He had felt the heat of the sun on his feet. 

He also had no headaches and no blurry vision (which he had complained about before). His hands, however, did not have any difference from the first session. They are extremely painful, and he wears wool gloves to warm and protect them. 

I worked on him again yesterday, and haven’t heard if there is any change. I did lots of clearing on his hands and arms and entire body, so — I’ll keep you updated.”

We are all connected. We are all healing together.

Healing The World: The Peace Experiment

How can we energetically heal the planet?

Lynne McTaggart has a plan. Click below to find out more about an event she is hosting called the Peace Experiment. I signed up.

The Peace Experiment is a free event that runs from Sept. 30th to Oct. 5th, 2017 and will be webcast around the world. If you sign up, you’ll receive a daily streaming webcast over the six days and full instructions about how to take part in the live experiment.

I wrote about Lynne McTaggart over six years ago; she was and still is, a huge source of information and inspiration. She wrote a book in 2008 called The Field: The Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe that I listened to about 100 times. It was the only CD I had in my car for about six months.

“The Field” is an energy that connects all living things across space and time and provides a practical working model for how healing works. Click here and listen to McTaggart clearly explain how everyone individually has the power to create with intention and how we can collectively heal and transform our world.

Clarity Breathwork: Align Your Life

Tarot Of The Spirit by Pamela Eakins, Ph.D. and Joyce Eakins, M.F.A.

When you are grounded, centered and in energetic alignment, life can become effortless.

It’s so much easier to manifest relationships, money and creative projects when your energy flows. When you are in alignment, the world around you aligns. You find the perfect job for this perfect moment of your life. You meet perfect person who says the perfect thing at the perfect time. You even have more patience for those things that are not quite so perfect. 🙂

One client many years ago realized that she had a lifelong unconscious belief that she was unlovable. It came to her in a Clarity Breathwork session. “I am unlovable” was a belief that had been blocking her energy flow for years. Just by becoming aware of this unconscious programming, she began to heal it, and it had a profound impact on her life.

When the unconscious becomes conscious, it could no longer run her life. Awareness heals.

Needless to say, she soon found a wonderful life partner and soon after started a family. The best thing, though, is how happy she became. She just loves herself and her life.

Healing Before a Test

Many clients book a healing before they have to give a speech, have surgery, take a test or go to the dentist. I can’t believe I have not written about how beneficial a Reiki and Healing Touch treatment is before a stressful event.

Here is part of an email I received from a client who had scheduled a healing with me the day before she had to go to the DMV for what she thought would be a driving test. She had not been able to drive her car for several months because of medical reasons and was now ready to regain this huge part of her independence. She was more than a little nervous.

Hi Jeri,
I can drive again!!!!
The healing was great and I slept well. I don’t have to take the written test or the driving. Answered prayer😊
Thanks again!

 

She was relaxed enough after the healing to get a good night’s sleep. Getting a good night’s sleep before a stressful event is the key to performing at our best. If she had to take the driving test, I bet she would have done just fine.

Energy, Gratitude and the Art of Marie Kondo

Marie Kondo is the author of “The Life-Changing Magic Of Tidying Up” and “Spark Joy”. She has created the KonMari Method; a decluttering and organizing system based on Japanese values for tidying up your clothes, objects, house, and life. Her first book is a New York Times bestseller and has sold over 2 million copies worldwide. She is probably a billionaire by now. 

Why is Marie Kondo so successful?

Marie Kondo understands energy. She is teaching us that when we approach every object we own with gratitude, we bring clarity and abundance to every area of our lives. She knows how to release what we do not need and let go with love. She is showing us how to create and maintain sacred space.

She certainly has great advice for staying present while folding your clothes.

The essence of her KonMari Method a great spiritual teaching.

Watch the video above and see for yourself.

“The key point here is to feel the piece of clothing with your hands and communicate your affection through your palms… Folding clothes is not about making them compact, but it is about love, to communicate your affection and gratitude for their continuous support.”

 – Marie Kondo in the video
