In addition to my "day job" as life coach/hypnotherapist/Essential Oils therapist, wife and mother, I am in school to become a Natural Physician. Part of my education is completing case studies--lots of case studies. Currently, I am working on case studies for my Reflexology certification. I use polarity and acupressure, in addition to Essential Oils, to relax and release points in the feet and hands that correspond to organs and systems in the body. Sometimes the message is pretty direct and others more of a feeling.
The first time I got a direct message from someone's body, I jumped thinking there was someone else in the room. I had my eyes shut and was exploring the reproductive system around the ankles. I hit the man's prostrate and immediately a voice said, "Lay off the beer." I jumped and opened my eyes to see who said that. No one there, minus my client who had his eyes shut and was deeply relaxed. I shut my eyes and touched the point again. The message came again, "Tell him to lay off the beer."
Now, I'm sensitive to the whole "being seen as a friggin' nutcase" scenario so I'm thinking how do I deliver this message without sounding crazy. My client feels me starring at him so he opens his eyes. I ask very demurely if he drinks a lot of beer. Yes, he nods, he does. I don't care to know how much so I gently suggest that his prostrate is "irritated" (the voice sure sounded that way to me) and he should back off some on his beer intake. Whew, message delivered.
Being the equal-opportunity gal that I am, I will also note that I get the same messages from women too. I can feel what side of their body will ovulate that month (I can literally see the egg in my mind's eye), and feel fibroid tumors in their uterus. I have also been credited with starting the menstrual cycle after a Raindrop and another with a Reflexology treatment by women who wanted that outcome. Now, I'm not sure who should get credit for that since I firmly believe we are the creator of our own dreams and successes.
I have been told by a stomach and digestive system before that the woman needed to stop eating so many taco's, especially from Taco Bell because it wasn't very happy and didn't serve her or her family. I have also felt "black holes" where the adrenals or ovary should be and later found out the client forgot to tell me she had Addison's disease or that ovary removed.
Thyroids have told me to share that they are out of balance and need to be regulated. Kidneys and liver also have a lot to share. These are a huge reason I made my Essential Oils kits. The kidneys and liver hold alot of emotional baggage. They hold the anger, the resentment (liver) and often keep life from flowing (kidneys) and moving forward. I feel blocks, knots, and irritations. I use alot of 'Release' oil on these two points and the client always reports feeling better--feeling more at peace.
And yes, I have heard the same things from my own body before. I knew when I miscarried because I heard a voice distinctly say "bye." I looked around to see who said it and then felt the cramping and bleeding start. I have also felt my soul separate from my body after a major surgery. I knew that was one of my check-out points and also knew that we had just adopted two more children and my husband couldn't handle three children on his own. I remember saying over and over again, "But I can't leave now." The voice clearly said that was my choice but it was my last check-out point for 50 more years. Okay, then. Might as well make the best of it!
I really look forward to more case studies and adding Reflexology to my practice healing mind, body and soul. The body speaks to us all the time. Do you take the time to listen?
