willing to link bodily symptoms with emotional or relational cause. You can also energetically imagine a circle between yourself and the client, if you want to better understand them. If the client is dealing with a relationship challenge, ask her to visualize how the connection (in the form of a circle) appears between her and the other person. If your client imagines a broken circle, you can ask what might occur if she was to imagine a whole circle. If the client is having difficulties releasing or transforming a finished relationship, you can also suggest she release the interconnecting circle altogether. You can also have a client visualize a clockwise spiral to take in desired energy or a counterclockwise spiral to release unwanted energy, even moving your hands in these motions to support the client's intention. Squares for safety. Boundaries are an imperative aspect of being a practitioner. I suggest setting a square rug or cloth under your healing table to help ground and stabilize the client and fix your own boundaries. If you typically pick up clients' energies and take on their feelings or physical disorders, wear square patterns on your clothing or square-shaped accessories. If you are intuitively visual, know that clients' repressed issues can be pictured in their body as squares, boxing in a feeling, gift, memory, or desire that has been ignored. Lead a client into these boxes to help them deal with what might very well be the core of physical distress and tension. You can also imagine a square energy around your energetic field to provide protection for you. Triangles for healing and creation. Use triangular or pyramidal shapes in your office to enhance healing and manifesting work. Make sure the point of a triangle is directed toward a desirable energy. For instance, put a pyramidal structure in plant soil for grounding and aim the point near the window, so you can bring in sunlight and nature. You can also enhance a client's goals by asking them to imagine what they want coming in through the top of an imagined triangle. You, or they, can also gain perspective on an issue by picturing yourself on the top of a pyramid looking down. Some practitioners even establish a pyramidal structure over their table to enhance energetic shifts. As you can see, shape is a healing tool that can enhance assessment, boundaries, healing, and creativity—even to the extent of selecting the shape of your dinner plate. Notes 1.
