It is not necessary to introduce them to a client, although you can, if you wish. Over time, you'll discover that these steps take no more than a couple of moments to complete. At the end of a session, I simply reverse them, which allows me to release my client into the world in a good way. These three steps, with descriptions, are as follows. 1. Acknowledge Your Own Spirit Affirming your own spirit is equivalent to identifying with your spiritual essence, which is always connected to Spirit. Over time, many practitioners create a tool for quickly performing this step. They might internally chant a certain tone or song, picture a light emanating from their heart, or feel positive energy flowing through their body. The purpose of this step is to activate your best self and clear personal issues and agendas. 2. Acknowledge Others' Spirits (the Client's and the Helping Presences) The primary intention of this activity is to call forth the highest aspect of your client. This step doesn't eliminate the client's personality, underlying needs, or psychological dramas; rather, it bolsters their spiritual essence, the part of them best able to avoid self-sabotage, work toward a clear agenda, and enable healing. As stated, if you are interacting with multiple people or living beings, you can affirm all of their spirits, simultaneously. The second aspect of this step is directed at transcendent beings. Affirming their presence expands your healing team to include skilled and well-meaning invisible helpers. This acknowledgment also chases away interfering beings. 3. Acknowledge the Spirit By appealing to the Oneness, you accomplish several vital goals. First, you free yourself from perfectionism. Ironically, when you're more relaxed, you will function at a higher level. As well, your intuition will be more accurate, as you'll only receive divinely approved messages. Secondly, you establish energetic boundaries between you and the client. The Spirit's presence effectively ensures energetic safety for you and your client but also creates a buffer between you. Thirdly, this step guarantees that only the highest healing will occur. Speaking for myself, I know that the Spirit is far more equipped than I am to deliver healing and love. Having put the Spirit in charge of the session, I sometimes wonder if there is anything left for me to do as the practitioner. There is. My job is to love, sharing the most formidable power there is. In the end, it is our very human presence that enables the calling of even greater help. Note 1. Esoteric Interfaith Church, Inc.
