Upon further digging, the client discovered she still held on to a wellspring of rage and other unexpressed feelings related to an abusive father. After six sessions, the physical and emotional pain had all but cleared. Her arm and shoulder moved more easily and her mood had stabilized. Massage loosened up the remaining tension. The physical miracle occurred because we enabled a subtle miracle, or shift. RECOGNIZING MIRACLES Subtle forces don't have to be transported by physical forces. There are also purely subtle forces. When a man yells at his wife, the rage carried on the emotionally charged force can be absorbed by their children. The mother who considers her child to be bad or unlovable sends that negativity through mentally based subtle forces straight into that child. Technically, the entry wounds in these cases might be the ears or a subtle energy field or center, but body-wide distortions can occur because subtle forces can create hundreds of dysfunctional pathways. The good news is that if you shift the subtle energies, you can alter physical reality. Feel those feelings and the body can open up. Shift the dysfunctional beliefs and the body can detoxify. Over time, the physical self can right itself. In the end, miracles occur when we trust that they exist. Spend a day and count the miracles your work is helping to create. How many clients can stretch farther after a session than before? How many clients tell you they are becoming more aware of their inner feelings or needs? We are comprised of physical and subtle energies, which weave together to create lives of joy and meaning. ENERGY WORK Clearing Subtle Energies How can you assist clients with clearing subtle energies, rather than only physical energies? Here are a few tips: Physically Work the Pathways Remember that physical and subtle forces create an entrance wound and pathway, as well as an exit wound or congestion site. Alleviate the wound sites, blocked areas, and pathways using bodywork techniques. Use Subtle Energy to Clean Picture a bright white energy cleaning and filling all wounds, pathways, and congested areas. You can ask that this subtle energy continue to work even after the session is over. Trust Your Intuition When working on a client, empower your intuition. Pay attention to empathically sensed feelings, awareness, images, or thoughts. Share these with a client if it's appropriate, or ask that the client's spiritual guidance transform the stuck energies into helpful energies. Encourage Your Client's Intuition If appropriate, ask the client to focus on the areas of bodily discomfort. Encourage them to feel any long-held emotions or memories. They can also work further on these issues with a therapist. Cyndi Dale is an internationally renowned author, speaker, and intuitive consultant.
