Some of the questions I’m often asked include ” How do you keep going? ” and “As you are floating around the country , do you ever stop or get tired?”
The answer is that most of the time I do not live on nervous energy but on the natural boost I get from the food I that I eat and from the powerful energy that comes from seeing my clients transformations.
Every day I see more positive change in my clients than I would have seen in a year working as a teacher and the abundance of this positive energy supports me in my work.
So the short answer is that as long as I am doing this work and seeing the positive changes that I am privileged to wittiness happening in my clients as I work with them then I am happy to continue “floating like a butterfly” as one lady described my travelling .
However I have moments, hours and days when I feel drained out, exhausted and my mind clouds over. These times don’t happen frequently but are caused by a lack of attention to the food that I might eat, the hours of sleep that I miss or the negativity of someone that I forget to clear out of my system. Being human means having within me the same needs, desires and weaknesses as everyone else. Having been through the tough experiences that life has presented to me in my personal life between illnesses, injuries and crashes I have a deep empathy with every person who is suffering and if I don’t control my empathy and protect myself I can find myself feeling as bad they did when they arrived to see me.
Being protected with a shield of positive energy and a deep sense of security inside that can sustain us when we are being stressed.
When a child comes to see me I frequently notice that they are picking up far more information from their parents, friends and neighbours than the parents had imagined. This information is frequently non verbal and not even through the 5 senses but through a sixth sense or sense of empathy with others.
Leah( not her real name- privacy is always assured)
Leah a child of 9 was brought to see me a few months ago..
Her difficulty was that she could not go to sleep at night and had become quite aggressive in school and outside of the home.
Within a few moments of arrival she relaxed and engaged with me. I asked many questions and deliberately misinterpreted her answers until she became confident that she wiser than me and felt like she was in charge. By the way I do this frequently as it gives children the opportunity to shift their attitude to me a stranger from one of fear or anxiety to one of being relaxed.
Once she had relaxed I asked her a number of other questions that led us to understand that she was highly intuitive and was clearly picking up information about those around her that not even her parents were noticing. Gradually we came to understand that she was picking up the troubles, cares, concerns and worries of everyone she encountered and as a 9 year old she did not have the way to solve their problems as she really would like to have done. This was all happening unconsciously. When she was in the company of someone sad he took on their sadness, happy their joy, angry their stress and so on.
I asked her to imagine that her stomach was a giant washing machine and that every negative emotion, stress, anger etc that she picked up from others was like a basket of dirty clothes crammed inside. In fact the machine was so full that it could not turn or wash the clothes. Because all of her time wand energy was preoccupied with the stresses and emotions of others she was not able to process her own difficulties and had reached overload. When she reached overload she erupted in aggressive behaviour and at night her mind kept racing from one person to another and her moods and emotions kept changing from moment to moment so he had no peace of mind.
I invited her to imagine that she could open the machine and begin to take out the stinking, dirty clothes and rather than have her wash them I suggested that she put them into a great big laundry basket in the sky. She chimed in that Good could wash them. We all agreed and she gradually emptied her abdomen / washing machine of all the stresses and negativity that she had been picking up from everyone for years. Next I invited her to run a rinse in the machine to flush away any trace of the old clothes and when that was done I invited her ot think about the stresses and worries that she had herself relating to how she felt and what she thought. before long she told us she had washed them all through and we could she a different attitude and vitality in her. next I invited her to imagine breathing in a golden gas of pure clear energy that would form a shield around her like a cocoon protecting her, nourishing her spirit and filled with God’s love, Joy , Peace and all of the other things that would support her. She had a strong belief in her guardian angel being with her at all times also.
I explained that when we are vulnerable, sensitive and empathetic we can easily get swamped by the emotions and issues of others. we need the protective layer to help us stay safe and just be ourselves.
Her mother decided to come ansd see me on her own as she too is very sensitive but did not realise that her daughter was being affected in the same way that she was. With the mother a number of other issues emerged during our sessions together but the main focus was on clearing her and helping her be protected so that she could be herself . Once she felt clear and protected her while life began to shift as her confidence grew and she really began to believe in herself for he first time.
Leah has changed rapidly and now top of her class, sleeps when her head hits the pillow, is polite, happy and relaxed. She has been back for a number sessions and in each session we are helping her to process her transition into being just herself rather than the “worn out washing machine full of other people’s troubles” as she describes how she once felt. Now she sees herself as a beautiful butterfly emerging from the cocoon and soon she will be ready to fly.
If you are reading this and you feel that there is something that you are ready to shake off, or you have a vision of the person you want to become, skills that you want to have or attitudes you want to change to then book a call with me and let’s see what we can do together.
