The other day I was in a session with one of my wonderful clients. We were moving quite a lot of heavy stuck energy.
‘It feels lighter now,’ I said after we sat in silence for a few minutes while she was processing.
‘How do you know?!’ she exclaimed.
This wasn’t the first time I’ve been asked that question.
‘I don’t know. I just feel it.’
But of course, I do know. It just wasn’t appropriate to share it at the time. But it got me thinking about this topic.
You see, I grew up in a violent household. For years, I prided myself on the fact that unlike the rest of my family members, I’ve never been beaten up (OK, I had two hard slaps across my face from my grandma, which still make my face tingle when I remember those incidents, but it’s as nothing as to what everyone else had experienced).
The way I did it was to feel people’s mood.
It wasn’t a conscious decision. It was simply self-preservation. Over the years, I got so skilled at this survival technique so that I could tell what people wanted before they knew it.
When I left home, I took the skill with me. It came in handy in dysfunctional relationships I had for a while. To stay safe, I constantly ‘palpated’ people’s energies (which is pretty exhausting, to be honest and kept me hyperalert). I wasn’t even aware I was doing it. For years, I thought it was being considerate and empathetic towards people. I didn’t think much of it, and, at times, felt frustrated when people didn’t reciprocate.
It’s only when I trained as the Compassion Key master facilitator, I started putting this gift to good use. I honed my ability to feel people’s energetic blocks, and can tell how people feel on the other end of the line in the UK, Australia or the US.
Can you relate? Perhaps, you channelled your wounds into poems or writing prose. Perhaps, you are a better parent, because you know how it feels to be on the receiving end of feeling hurt. Perhaps, you help others heal in your own way.
“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.”
You are not your wound; its job was to open you to your own light. Let your light shine. It’s time.
