Most of my clients are familiar with bodywork. Along these lines I offer in-person treatment sessions. I usually offer a modality that involves touching the physical body to facilitate balance. My clients are comfortable with these modalities.
Less familiar to many is the energy work I do for both humans and animals. The most common question I hear is……” How does that work?”
You likely have had the experience of entering a crowded room and getting a intuitive feel for the group. Your response may have been one of the following: You want to get out of there before you go any further, or you feel you are going to really like this group. They feel like your “peeps”.
Where do these feelings come from? My thought is that you read the energy of the room, interpret it in a split second, then act on it. This is what I am doing when I do energy work. I read and interpret the energy and then offer an activity (energy) to balance what I read.
Here is an example.
A client came to me with the statement “I am stuck. Nothing is working in my life”.
I started asking questions about what was working for her. She gave me a few things….my car, where I live, my dog. I then asked about what was not working for her. She answered: I can’t move forward with anything. I don’t have any friends. Even the person I’m dating is going nowhere.
I now now asked how she handled stress. Did she get physical exercise? Running perhaps? Did she receive emotional support from a therapist? Did she engage in mental activities such as listening to educational podcasts? Any spiritual reflections such as meditation?
The session focused on finding the right activity to move the energy in the area that was stuck, and of course……I didn’t even touch her!!
I love to give homework once we have found the right activity or activities to move the energy. This helps turn our discovery into a transformative process that stays with the client.
