The Healing Space Of No Agenda

For many of us, stepping out of a pandemic appears to be as challenging as it was to step in.

There have been times in recent healing sessions when my clients are just not ready to relax.

During a healing last week, I had my left hand on my client’s knee and my right hand on her ankle when I intuitively felt resistance in her leg. Her body was letting me know there was too much fear to relax. Her tight, hypervigilant muscles had been holding her together for many months – physically and emotionally.

As a healer, I honor this resistance. I witness every day how much emotion and energy our bodies hold and manage for us; I never try to override it, move it out, or release it.

I move my hands with great respect: my left hand on her hip and my right hand on her knee. There is no agenda, just deep respect for my client and the sacred space. I focus on holding the most calming, still, grounded space for all energy and emotions arising or not arising. I hold space for “no release.”

I move to the other side of the table and held her other ankle and knee. Suddenly everything released.  My client’s whole body just exhaled all at once and let go into a very relaxed state.

Just like that. It was incredibly peaceful. 

The space of not letting go is so healing.

Feeling Welcomed Again

I signed up at the neighborhood gym and started working out a few months ago.

I can’t tell you how amazing this feels.  What makes it even better is the woman who opens the gym in the morning. Heather is her name.

She is so welcoming. On my first day, she smiled at me (through her mask) and unlocked the door as soon as she saw me. She explained that she gets there early to work out and she would be happy to let me (and anyone else who arrived) inside before the gym was officially open.

The gym is also inviting with air filters, fans everywhere, and all the machines being wiped down and disinfected continuously. There are only about two or three other people who work out as early as I do.

In this last year of everyone people pulling back as I approached, or crossing the street when they saw me walking my dog, meeting Heather on that day almost brought tears to my eyes. Here was a woman who was going out of her way to invite me in after a year of feeling so separate from some of my closest friends and family.

I know all the backing away was not personal during this year, yet just by going back to the gym, I realized how hard it has been emotionally.

As we move out into the world again it is so easy to feel overwhelmed. Our nervous systems are now so overstimulated after this prolonged isolation. I have been scheduling healings and bodywork for myself to stay grounded and make this transition as easy as possible. I have also noticed how profoundly helpful healings have been for my clients as they step back out into the world.

Still, I can’t WAIT to see Heather tomorrow !!!!!!

Healing: The Experience of New Energies

It still amazes me how every healing session is so different.

Just this week, I felt a completely new energy, frequency, or level of consciousness that had never shown up before.  It felt dark (in a deep way, not a shadowy way), refined, detoxing, and very still.

 

Profoundly still.

The client I was working with often releases energy in her body with strong muscle spasms that throw her arms off the side of the massage table. These releases realign her shoulder/rotator cuff, but that day she had barely perceptible micro-movements in her neck and upper body.

She was so relaxed afterward. The next day I asked her to write more about what she experienced in the session:

“This session was unlike any before. I quickly dropped into a deeply peaceful expansiveness. I had little to no sense of my physical body or Jeri’s physical presence – just a crystalline peacefulness. I felt a much-needed sense of stillness and calm. Amazing session!! “

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.

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!”

A Business Of Healing By Jeri Lawson

JeriBookCover

 

This feels like an odd week to announce my book. The orange sky, dark days, and fires have added another layer of craziness to our lives. My family in Oregon almost had to evacuate their home. These are crazy times.

So, that being said,  The book I have been writing for the last year is now available.

It is not a book about the euphoria of healing. This book is about my experience as a professional healer over the last twenty-five years.  There are plenty of wonderful and inspiring books written on Reiki, Healing Touch, and other energetic modalities. This book is about issues and paradoxes in my practice that I couldn’t find in books by other healers, things that took me a long time to understand on my own.

It is about how I learned to trust the healing process and let go of everything blocking me from being fully present for my clients. How I learned to hold an energetic space that would allow others to self-heal.

“It took me over twenty years to develop the ability to completely trust the energy. To understand that whatever happens during a healing is, and will always be, perfect. This trust has become an embodied skill. Now fully embedded in my muscle memory, this healing skill is my superpower.

We are all capable of accessing our unique superpower, and it certainly does not need to take twenty years.”
