When a client comes for a session, I first dialogue with him or her in the spirit of open inquiry, using the understanding of Inquiry I have gained from 13+ years as a student of the Diamond Approach. From this inquiry I have a sense of the nature of the issues the client has brought to the session and where those issues are located in his or her body.
Sometimes I begin by working with The Emotion Code — a powerful method for releasing trapped emotions. I often end Emotion Code sessions with hands on work on a massage table to help the client integrate the release.
Alternatively, I begin by inviting my client to lie down on my massage table. I enter into the table work from a space of emptiness and an attitude of allowing in order to be fully open to intuitive guidance. I do not see myself as the healer, but simply as part of the interconnectedness that occurs when facilitator, client, and Source/Love/God interact to bring healing forth. With my eyes closed, I often see energetic conditions in my client’s field with inner vision, and I often feel my client’s emotions and bodily sensations in my own body emphatically. I consciously invoke the presence of all beings associated with my client’s life and associated with my work as a healer, and so I do not proceed alone. In that field of empty allowing and Presence, I hold myself open to whatever directions I receive intuitively. The session begins to flow like a river, and I allow myself to flow with whatever is happening. My intuitive guidance often manifests as techniques I have learned from my teachers, whether it is simply the holding of a space of emptiness with unconditional Love, or the speaking of specific words which I hear in my head, or the use of a specific energy technique. I have no pre-conceived ideas concerning what is needed.
The field of the session often invokes visual, auditory or kinesthetic experiences in my clients, and their feedback becomes part of a dialectic dance. Each session unfolds in its own particular way, as if it has a life of its own. Each session is a mystery, often astonishing.
For me, the greatest privilege of being a human being is the opportunity to connect deeply with another soul, to support another person’s capacity for radiant health, clear mind, open heartedness, sensual aliveness and peaceful well being. My healing work offers me this opportunity, and I feel privileged to work with those who come to me.
