How Your Words and Actions Point The Way To Your Power

Ever hear yourself saying these words?

I need to gather my energy.

I need to be more balanced.

I want to feel calm and centered.

This is exactly what Yolande said when stating her intention during a recent Healing Touch session.

Yolande has two teenage daughters and a demanding career that requires frequent international travel. Her husband is supportive but puts in long hours at the office and on the road. When she arrived for her session, she said she was experiencing a stressed adrenaline rush.

“I’m already going to China twice in the next month. In between those two trips, my boss wants me to go to Europe to garner some new business. I don’t know why I told them OK. I don’t know why I have a hard time saying no.”

But, eventually she did speak up, and she canceled the Europe trip.

“That’s great!” I said, and she seemed surprised. In her state, which was scattered, wired, and exhausted, she didn’t fully grasp the importance of setting a boundary. She also didn’t realize that she was speaking “energetically” and intuitively, giving me clues about what was occurring with her on a subtle level.

When I assessed Yolande’s energy, her chakras were still, indicating stagnant energy throughout her system. The edge of her biofield was strong (correlating with strong boundaries) but as I scanned through each level of her energy field, I noticed a slight blip over her solar plexus. Also, her field felt somewhat vacant, indicating a depletion of energy.

I started with Mind Clearing to promote relaxation, left brain-right brain balance, and  a release from the worry she was carrying. Next, I worked to clear her solar plexus. I felt congestion extending through all levels of her field. After several minutes of administering Magnetic Passes: Hands in Motion, the congestion gradually released. The final step was to balance Yolande’s solar plexus with each of the other chakras using Central Core Balance.

My post treatment assessment indicated that her chakras were open and strong. Her biofield felt as if it had been renewed, feeling more full and vibrant. The energetic congestion related to her solar plexus was gone.

When Yolande opened her eyes, she gave a big sigh and said, “Ah, that’s better. I feel more calm and collected.”

I told her, “You may not have noticed, but the words you spoke at the beginning of the session really showed how you were feeling energetically. Your solar plexus relates to the mental level of the energy system as well as our sense of power and self esteem. When you stated your intention to gather back your energy, you were indicating a desire to call back your power.”

I pointed out to her that when we have hard time saying no, we are giving away our power:

Remember, we always have a choice about what is happening in our life even when it doesn’t feel that way. Being a ‘victim of circumstances’ is an energy drain.”

Yolande followed her intuition not only by setting a boundary in her busy life, but also by knowing when to stop and “collect” herself energetically. She left that day feeling more calm, centered , balanced and connected to her inner power.

How is your energy speaking to you today? What can you do to connect to your solar plexus and reclaim your power?
