When Spirit Comes Knocking

Sometimes Spirit just really want to get one’s attention, and yesterday She was quite obvious in her determination.

Most mornings I pull some cards to get a feel for the day, and yesterday one of the cards I pulled from the Mythical Goddess Tarot was Yemaya. Now Yemaya and I have a long history of dancing around each other, but I didn’t really think anything about the card beyond the message, which is, in part, about connecting with Mother so you can be a light for others.

Later, at work, we received a shipment of glass figurines that hang from cords. Two of them were mermaids, which I’d never seen before. Pretty, but again, I didn’t give it much thought.

The final frying-pan-upside-the-head was late last night when I was watching “Saving Grace” on Netflix (great show!). A young girl woke from a coma, speaking Portuguese and repeating a phrase. I picked up the word “Yemonja” and waited til they had translated what she was saying, and sure enough, she was praying to Yemonja! Alrighty then!

I did a bit of research (again), and found this article about her, and that’s when the light bulb really went off, and now I’m getting a feel for why she’s been making herself known to me so many times over the last 15 years or so.

This morning’s message came via an Instagram post from Tarot Readings From a Bitch, in which she had created a water altar, something I’ve not done, though it had been suggested to me before by Joanna Powell Colbert. Got it.

-Aside: read both of their blogs. You won’t regret it.

So I’m off to create a water altar, do some connecting, and figure out how to be a landlocked mermaid. 🙂

Have you ever had Spirit, in one form or another, be as determined to get you to pay attention? Who and how? Let’s hear about it!!

PS: Almost forgot! Today and tomorrow, in honor of Yemaya and the water element, I’m offering a 15-minute session for $10 that focuses solely on the chakra associated with water; the sacral chakra. Let’s unblock some of that stuck energy and get things flowing! You can make your payment here, and don’t forget to put your email address in the notes so I can contact you and set up a time!

What Happens During an Energy Session?

This question, oh, it’s a tough one.

Why?, you ask. Well, because it’s specific to each and every person. Overwhelmingly, the feeling most mentioned is peace; sometimes in a wave, sometimes later, but almost always peace. As one client said, “I feel light-hearted and calm. I felt the light she sent and in an instant was overwhelmed with a joy (not to mention the tingles).”

As for the basics, I’m often asked, “What do I need to do?”, and the answer is, “Whatever you would like!” There’s no specific way to receive healing light, and you can go on with your normal day, you can do yoga, nap, get a massage, watch tv…it’s up to you. I do mention that it’s possible that you may fall asleep (it seems to happen when there is a lot of stress, exhaustion, or pain involved), so you can schedule your session with that in mind. During one particularly deep hour-long session (I used to call it the Dare Session), a client once fell asleep for 12 hours!

You don’t need to wear anything in particular, don’t need to remove your jewelry, don’t need to be somewhere quiet; all you need to do is be willing to receive.

A session is not done by phone, Skype, or email, either. You purchase a session for $45, I receive an email confirmation, and then we exchange a few emails wherein I ask what the session is for, if there’s a particular ailment or part of the body you want the light focused on, we set up a time, and off we go!

Before the session, I will email that I’m about to start, and will do the same once I’ve completed the work. I tend to say something like, “Let me know if it helps!” or, “I hope it helps”, because the way the healing manifests within you may be completely different from what you expected. For instance, one in-person client was having a bit of back pain and as I worked on her, she stated that it felt like, “little dwarves working on my back, then light jumped from my back, over my head and straight to my heart chakra”. The light knows where it needs to go and what needs to be done. Oh, and yes, her back felt better, too. 🙂

 

I have found that clients may not always associate later shifts and healing with a session, and I admit, sometimes I want to say, “Hey! Remember the work we did??”, but that’s my ego talking, and it really needs to learn to chill. 😉

Of all the clients I’ve helped, only two had unpleasant memories rise to the surface after a particularly intense Dare Session – whose purpose was to specifically unblock the energies in the lower 5 chakras. It’s not for the light of heart, but if you really want to unblock a lot of stuff and stir up the mud to see what rises to the surface so you can face it, deal with it, and let it go, I’m ready to help. Read Amanda Donnelly’s post about her experiences to get a feel for what could happen. 🙂 Send me an email and let me know you want the Dare Session, and we’ll set it up!

Hopefully this post gives you a little insight into what goes on during a session, and if you have any questions, again, shoot me an email! I’m more than happy to answer questions!

One last thing: I am not a medical intuitive. This means that no, I can not tell you what is causing this or that pain, nor will I be able to sense anything going on in your body: I am a conduit and the gift I have does not include that ability. The light flows through me and into you; I can tell where there are a lot of stuck emotions and/or pain by the way my hands feel, and occasionally, very occasionally, I may see something in my environment that seems to be a little sign meant for you, and I will let you know what I saw and what it seemed to mean to me. Beyond that, no, I cannot tell you more.
