The Road Not Taken

Gosh you guys, there was such an unexpected amount of pressure (self-inflicted, I’m sure, but pressure nonetheless) that came along with deciding what this first blog post should be about.  I wanted it to have meaning, of course, but not be too far-out.  Definitely thought it should be full of feeling but not too emotional.  Then, the indecisiveness kicked in full-force so, instead of pouring my heart onto the screen right off the bat, I thought I’d ease into it with this quote:

“At various points in our lives, or on a quest, and for reasons that often remain obscure, we are driven to make decisions which prove with hindsight to be loaded with meaning.”  – Swami Satchidananda

As I typed the quote above, it got me thinking.  Things truly do happen for a reason – and within each moment we are presented with choices.  Most often, the decisions we make based on the choices we are presented with, however big or small, are pretty second-nature.  Because it’s what we’ve always done.  Because it’s what’s expected.  But, then there comes those moments in time when you’re presented with that chance to change it up.  To go against the grain.  To step off the beaten path and take the road less traveled.

“All of us, whether or not we are warriors, have a cubic centimeter of chance that pops out in front of our eyes from time to time.  The difference between an average man and a warrior is that the warrior is aware of this, and one of his tasks is to be alert, deliberately waiting, so that when his cubic centimeter pops out he has the necessary speed, the prowess, to pick it up.”  – Carlos Castaneda

I can’t very well create a website offering energy sessions if I’m not willing to talk about my experience, can I?  So let me just say, I’m fairly certain that the moment I agreed to participate in my first energy session was essentially my “cubic centimeter of chance” and thankfully the warrior in me was alert enough to pick it up.  Because, in hindsight, the person I was then was so bogged down under whatever it is we accumulate over the course of our lives that I’m surprised I was able to pick my feet up off the floor.  Depressed and riddled with anxiety.  Worn down.  Just going through the motions.  Let’s face it, in a sense, my batteries were dead.

FYI, energy is a very intuitive thing and when you’re in receipt of energy during a session, your body uses said energy in the manner in which benefits you the most.  So, as you can imagine, every energy session is different.  For me, it was absolutely mind-blowing and thrilling and magical to be able to feel so palpably the energy moving throughout my body, especially having NEVER experienced anything like it before and had NO idea what to expect.  Not to mention it was taking place over the internet – and I wasn’t crazy – it was REALLY happening.  What began as heat in the lower abdomen and at the base of my spine moved gently up through my back.  This warming sensation then spread out into my limbs and moved up into my torso, as though my body was filling up slowly with warm sunlight.  There was a very distinct tingling sensation, a vibration even, that gently rattled my chest and opened up my heart space only to fill up with a warm loving feeling which then seemingly coursed throughout my veins.  While most of the session was beautiful and pleasurable, I would be remiss if I did not mention that there were small pains and pressures here and there too, nothing alarming, just the energy working its way through the body – and with purpose.  Warming, cooling, tingling…all coming in waves.  It literally felt as though everything negative was leaving my body and there was nothing but positive being poured in its place.

The thing is, it’s hard to gauge the benefits of the session until the energy has had an opportunity to work its way into the cells of the body.  The days/weeks to follow were nothing short of impressive.  I felt so happy and excited and alive.  Here I had not only experienced something just plain AMAZING, but I felt as though a fog had been lifted and left me with such mental clarity.  I had an uncanny amount of energy.  My appetite changed.  I lost weight.  I felt literally lighter on my feet, as though a heaviness I hadn’t even realized was there had been lifted.  My body just felt better, as though it was working for and not against me.  My depression and anxiety…GONE.  It sounds odd but I felt as though I had found my voice – like I had no choice but to be completely honest and open, for anything other than that felt unnatural.  I guess this lends itself to how much more balanced I was after the session – mentally, emotionally and physically – than before.

I’ve reached a point in this post where I’m feeling a bit raw and exposed, as this has been such a life-altering experience for me on so many levels.  This is not just about this one energy session; that was just the beginning of this beautiful evolutionary journey that I have been on since.  My “cubic centimeter of chance,” and this walk down the road less traveled, has led me to a place where I practice more self-assessment, accountability and find it necessary to live in truth and from a more authentic place.  I strive to maintain balance and to radiate love.  And from this place I have found myself, I am able to offer others what I consider to be a gift that was once generously offered to me.
