Let me tell you about the last time that I received Healing Touch. I went into the appointment with no clarity about what I needed to release or receive, I only knew that I was carrying something in my tense neck and shoulders. Through some discussion before the session, I thought it may be some regrets about missed opportunities and some jealousy of those who had what I had once wanted.
After I laid down on the massage table, the HT practitioner put her hands on my shoulders and I felt a twinge of pain triggered in my solar plexus. I told her about it and she moved her hands there. The pain grew sharper and even traveled up slightly to my heart. She asked how it felt, and I said it felt like I had been punctured. After naming it, I suddenly cried out, “Why does it have to hurt so bad?” As soon as I said that, I knew that it wasn’t about a physical pain I was feeling but rather an emotional one. I began to weep. In maybe a minute’s time, all the pain was gone and I had stopped weeping. I couldn’t believe how much better I felt. The session continued on, but it was that one moment of release where I received what I most needed.. simply to feel the sadness and move through it in order to let it go. The practitioner held a sacred space for me to recognize it and feel held during it. I wasn’t alone and it wasn’t scary. When I got off of the table that day, not only did my neck and shoulders feel physically relieved but I felt lighter in my whole spirit. As I thought back on lost opportunities or what others had, I no longer felt the heaviness that I had before.
This is what I love about energy healing! Your whole being, mindset, and physical health can shift in one tiny moment. I am so thankful for all of the practitioners out there providing a safe space, tender touch, and intuitive guidance.
