When people ask me why I want to do this work, my answer is always the same: I want to help people. I want to be of service. If you read the post, My Story, you’ll know that my unexpected encounter with a medium changed my life. In 20 minutes, the almost debilitating grief I carried from the loss of my father was all but gone completely. And since then, I’ve done other spiritual work, allowing for more self-healing, more transformation, and more inner peace. If there is some way I can help facilitate that for others, count me in! This blog or blog series, whatever it ends up being, will be focused on just that – healing. Specifically, healing from the inside out.
Today, I did a distant energy healing on a teenaged boy at the request of his mother. The boy, whom I’ll call Jason, has suffered his entire life from severe eczema. I’ve never met him, but was intrigued by his story when I first heard about him. His energy felt somewhat quiet, a little bit shy, a typical teenager, but intuitively I knew there was something special about him. When Jason experiences an eczema episode, the skin on a significant portion of his body breaks out in red blisters causing a lot of discomfort and itchy, painful sores. Simple movements exacerbate the symptoms and pain. His mother reports he spends most of his time in bed. He remains sore for days and misses several days of school at a time.
Oftentimes when I’m working with the energy of other people, Spirit gives me their thoughts, feelings or emotions and for a period of time, I feel as if I am that person. My thoughts come in first person. I know they aren’t related to me, but to the client. As I started to work on Jason’s energetic body, I began to feel completely debilitated by my condition. I remember thinking– I am nothing but this ailment. My whole life is dealing with the pain and embarrassment of an episode or waiting for the next one to begin. I felt like I wanted to bury myself in my covers and never come out. I had no identity outside of being this kid whose life was held hostage to this disease. As those thoughts came pouring in, I felt his despair, his loneliness, and his helplessness. I thanked Spirit for the insight into his human experience.
I continued to work on him, clearing his aura, balancing his chakras, sending him Divine light and healing energy. And as I did, I began to speak to him, to reassure him, like a mother does to a child, except I was speaking to his soul, his Higher Self. I reminded him that he is perfect; we all are. He is so much more than his physical body; we all are. He is limitless; we all are. He is separate from this disease that wreaks havoc on his human experience, and he can release the chains it has on him whenever he is ready.
As I said those things, I had the most incredible vision. I saw Jason’s spirit step outside of his body. His spirit turned and looked at me, smiled and then turned to face his physical body. He began to do healing on himself. He began moving his arms, performing the same physical motions I perform when I do an energy healing. I watched him clear the stagnant energy from his body. I watched him send himself Divine energy. And in that moment, I stepped back into Jason’s energy and instead of despair and helplessness, I felt an incredible sense of empowerment.
I haven’t heard from his mom since the healing and I don’t know if Jason will wake up tomorrow feeling better, feeling worse or with no change at all. What I do know is that on a soul level, this young man is working to heal himself from the inside out. I believe we all are and I am humbled to have been a witness to it today.
