I sometimes make my clients cry
Okay, so to be fair I also make my clients laugh (and a lot more than I make them cry). And to be even more fair, it's not so much that I am really making them cry; rather, it's their bodies and being recognizing it's finally safe to let all the "stuff" float up to the surface to finally be released. All the "stuff" they've been holding onto, locking in and pushing down is finally able to blossom and dissipate.
Damn this lady's pretty. You know what? You're beautiful too!
If I had a nickel for every time one of my beautiful clients said during a session, "I don't know why I'm crying, this is crazy!" I'd have like two bucks, woo! ;) But in all seriousness, I'd have like five bucks. Haha ;) (Sorry, sometimes I can't help myself).
So why is it important to let all that stuff go anyway? And what is that stuff and why is crying the way it happens? [next blog post] The whole point of energy medicine, no matter what kind, is to restore balance by releasing blockages so that the body can return to homeostasis.
Think of a happily flowing river for a moment. If unobstructed, the water moves freely and naturally giving respite and nourishment to everything around and in it. But if the river is blocked by boulders, garbage or even a beaver building a dam, then the water is obstructed from flowing. The water can sometimes just be diverted and flow a little less smoothly and become more choppy like waves crashing into a big rock or it can also be stopped up completely, resulting in putrefaction of the water as it sits totally stagnant.
Sometimes, the flow can even be reversed in parts creating that feeling of "going against the flow" where nothing seems to go quite right in our lives, where everything is an uphill (or up-steam) battle. Our bodies are much the same. (If you ever want to hear more on the anatomy of our energetic bodies, let me know).
Our physical and emotional suffering results from these blockages. When we release the "stuff" we're dissolving some of these blocks, whether an entire block or just part of one that will be released when it's ready (think bricks in a wall; we pull one or two out at a time until finally the whole thing comes tumbling down). By releasing these blockages we start to have a lot more ease in our lives and our bodies just like the river happily flowing along. By using the momentum of the water (which is just energy) we can get where we're going WAY faster with a lot more ease, joy and fun.
