So I had a Craniosacral Therapy session from a friend who does Reiki & Craniosacral therapy. I hadn't heard about it before but if she was involved, I was definitely there. I enjoy her energy and simply trust her. I have to be honest, I did not know what to expect. She gave me a brochure and my friend Cynthia who is a massage therapist gave me some info even though it is not something she practices. I have found that I actually do like going into things without any preconceptions or expectations. I seem to be better able to just experience it as it happens and observe it all no matter what it is. If I go into something with preconceptions or expectations, I tend to be disappointed. I have also learned not to let someone else's experience or truth be mine. Gotta love the individuality of this thing called life.
Back to the session. I went into it a little frustrated & impatient with things in my life and a little “pms-y.” I remember thinking ‘this should be interesting.' It was fabulous! I laid on a massage table on my back and unlike massage, I remained fully dressed, minus the shoes. The pressure she used was extremely light but incredibly effective. I felt as if I were suspended in time, in a very safe place where I was well cared for. It was so relaxing and peaceful. I had a couple of revelations and became very centered & grounded. One of the big things I realized was that I need to care for & nurture myself the same way I do my 11 year old. I encourage her to be herself and allow her to be who she is…what an incredible thing it would be if I did that for myself! Something inside reminded me that everything is ok & will work out exactly as it is supposed to. Even though I know this, I occasionally allow myself to give in to my very human-ness and panic that things may not work out. I suppose the best I can do at this point is acknowledge it and look around for the evidence that it really will be ok, whatever happens.
Anyway…the session. The calmness I walked away with is priceless. If you're local & would like to try it out, let me know. I'll send you Shani's contact info. I hope our Passion Test sessions are as good for her as this has been for me.
