You are going to think I am a mess when you see inside of me or please do not judge me when you see what is going on in my head and a myriad of other similar statements that display a sense of vulnerability and a desire to be accepted as we are.
Let’s face it, when I’ve gone to someone who does a similar type of work as I do in the distant past I’ve had the same thought occur in my mind; Oh what if they think poorly of me for my choices or what will they think of me regarding this issue?!? Yes, even I have felt this in the past.
I wanted to spend some time expounding upon the energy one must be in to intuit messages for someone or to be a conduit of this type of healing energy for a client, as I think a greater understanding of this will help so many to feel free and unencumbered.
Those of you who know me or have followed me for some time know that I often speak of energy and its importance to all aspects of our lives. There are certain types of energies that simply cannot occur in the same space at the same time. For example: Gratitude and Anger CANNOT occupy the same space at the same time. If you want to release anger from your heart, the fastest and most effective way to do this is by living in gratitude.
Let us take a moment to try this. Practice this every time you feel anger rising up in you. Take a breath close your eyes and call to Mind someone who has been kind and gracious and so very giving toward you. Outstretch your hands and imagine that you can invite this person’s essence into the palm of your hands. Send feelings of gratitude to this person’s essence in the palm of your hands. Now raise your hands and place them over your heart. Do you feel angry? If you are in the moment of gratitude your answer will be no. You do not currently feel angry if you are feeling gratitude. The reason for this is that every emotion, which we feel, has a certain energy signature and energies that are opposites cannot occupy the same space at the same time. This is not to say you cannot experience both of these things but in one moment, these energies cannot share the same space at the same time. This is a basic energetic principle. Fear cannot persist where Love resides.
For someone like myself to be in the receptivity of receiving messages and facilitating healing energies I have to occupy an energy of unconditional love and understanding. Messages do not come from any other space than this. I have talked with many other Mediums and Reiki Practitioners and they all agree. Messages from any other place are not pure messages, they are ego. I never work from that place. There is no other way to say it, so, if you are in that line of work and disagree I am sorry but that is what I see when I look at the energetic signature of things. Energy never lies, ever.
Now, I have a deep reverence for what it feels like to be on the other end of this, you feel vulnerable and that is not comfortable for most people. I understand this, but what I would like to do is invite you to change your perspective on vulnerability, because, with the right person, from the right frame of mind, this is true liberation! Allow yourself to be Vulnerable.
I have had this daily routine for 10 years or more now, (and I can say with complete honesty I have not missed a day in more than 10 years of doing this) that every morning when I am just waking up I say two things to myself.
1. God Grant me an understanding heart
2. God, allow me to witness that everyone I meet today is the face of God, show me your love for them and may I emulate that as well.
Now, I am not perfect by any means, I have moments during the day in my interactions outside of my soul work where I misstep. This is normal, it is part of growth, and you have to be ok with that happening. I am. I welcome all of it. I am excited to grow.
When I go to see a client, a friend or a loved one, whom I am interacting with spirit however, I have already cleared the path to be in the energy of love. I have reminded myself that this person whom I’m interacting with is the face of God, that God loves this person and that God hath granted me an understanding heart. Everything I see of a person in those moments is solely from that energetic space of unconditional love and understanding. There is no judgement and no opinion from this space. It is impossible for me to make such and energetic leap from love to judgement in this space. When it comes to interpersonal relationships, I have tried to be guided from this space as well. I am sure that is difficult for a relationship but I also hope that those in my life understand how sacredly and with a great deal of love and care that I hold their vulnerability with. What I would want you to know is that it is safe to just “be” when you are with me. I am the lioness who will guard you with more loyalty than you can ever know.
