How to Prepare
Relax, Relax, Relax!
As the mother of six children; oldest is 31, youngest are seven-year-old twin boys, I know how aggravating it can be when I'm busy, stressed and someone suggests that I just need to "Chill out."
I used to lash out at people who made what I'd interpreted as a belittling criticism and quickly recounted the long list of all the things I had to do. I was justifying, defending my stress.
High blood pressure, anxiety and depression, heart disease; these are just a few of the physical diseases that are symptoms of carrying stress in our bodies. They're the big red flags that pop up and say, "Hey, you need to do things differently - NOW!"
Whatever method you use to relax yourself, whether it's meditating, repeating a positive mantra, or just stopping and taking a few deep breaths - that is how you start listening to that "inner voice" that we will be working with in a Quantum Healing session.
"Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are."
Interpreting Through Emotions & Senses
Look at the picture below and describe it.
Put as much detail into your description as you can and then go a little further and imagine who put this arrangement together, who took the picture, etc...
Listen to the music and allow your mind to wander.
Some of us have become so accustomed to pushing ourselves "back on track" so that we work more efficiently that it feels uncomfortable, even scary, to "derail."
But that is what it means to allow your heart not your mind to dictate your route.
Give yourself permission to explore, comfort your ego and explain that you've got the time to do this, it's important to you and you are willing to not only allow but embrace the unexpected, even if it's just for a little while.
Remember what your last Christmas was like?
How about a wedding that you attended?
Or a birthday party?
That is visualization.
As you recall an event, attach as much emotion to it as you can. Incorporate all your senses; what did it sound like, feel like - were you happy, or sad? Why? What food did you eat? What was your favorite?
Engaging your imagination and putting those feeling into words is how you will express yourself in your session.
If you're not someone who ordinarily spends much time daydreaming, or in any kind of creative activity, you may be surprised by how much you have suppressed that innate "child like" nature of yourself. You may even discover that in lightening up and being silly, you will aggravate that side of you that maintains control of your daily life, your ego. Your ego isn't the "bad guy." Your ego is doing exactly what it is supposed to be doing; keeping you anchored into this realm.
During a session or even when you're thinking about scheduling a session you might find yourself combating input from your ego. That's natural. If you've spent time meditating, it's the same rhetoric that tries to run the show when you're attempting to step out of this time and space.
Your ego might try to intimidate you to keep you in line. Your mind chatter could include insults like, "Hey, you don't have time for this!" or, "You can't do that. You're not visual. You'll never be able to do this correctly," or "What if you get it all wrong? What if you embarrass yourself? What if this is a waste of time and money?"
Insecurities are rooted in belief systems. If you start hearing negative chatter, think about who's behind it. Could be a parent or a teacher or childhood peers or past or present bosses or coworkers.
Moving beyond patterning for growth by expansion is not only empowering,
it is fun!
