Because we deal in the ethereal and what we do cannot be measured by anyone except the person receiving the healing, the work we do can be perceived by those who do not understand as witchcraft or voodoo or whatever. I understand the perception they have and I bless people on their journey. I simply acknowledge their beliefs and gently remind them I am here if they should ever decide to explore the spiritual side of their being.
I am sharing this with you because a very important aspect of the work I do with others is based on integrity. I check what is in the highest good before I work with any client. I have even refused to work with individuals who are not ready for what I can offer. Again, checking with the highest good serves everyone and in the end, all is as it should be. With some healers however, that is not the case. Some healers assume that they must work with whoever approaches them. This is not true. Not every healer is appropriate for everyone who approaches them. This is a very important point that is lost. Often it is lost in a healer's excitement of being able to help others who are willing to delve into the realm of spirituality.
I remember when I started the spiritual journey and began receiving messages. One time, I did not check if it was in the highest good to deliver a message and when I delivered the message, damage was done. At the time, I thought I was doing okay because I got a message so surely I needed to deliver the message. I was so excited about knowing I could help someone that I did not stop to think about the potential outcomes. Turns out the message was for me and it was because I needed to have insight into the interaction I was having with another individual. They did not need the message, I did and if I had checked what was in the highest good, I would have received that confirmation. Instead, the damage was done and there was no way it could be reversed. (Or so I believed at the time. I have since healed the situation and now all is well.) I understand the excitement of wanting to help another but it is to temper that excitement with what is in the highest good.
I tell you that because today, I treated a client who had been under the care of an energy worker for a significant number of years. One day, the therapist decided they were going to work in the client's subconscious mind and they activated the client's kundalini energy without the client's permission and without telling the client what they did. Since the activation, the client has been suffering with anxiety, massive energy movement, heart palpitations, swollen brain and a number of very real physical ailments. The client went for a battery of tests and other than the swelling in the brain, all of the tests came back negative so something else was happening. When the client shared with me the experience they'd had, it was clear that kundalini had been activated which the client was not equipped for or prepared to deal with. When kundalini is activated, rapid healing must happen because fears/blocks/beliefs, etc. are suddenly pushed up for healing and release and if you are not ready, the physical imbalances can be catastrophic. This is no exaggeration. This client had been on the brink of suicide because there did not seem to be any answers or any hope of relief in sight.
Today, we were able to deactivate the kundalini and the client was able to get themselves into a powerful and peaceful place. Now, they are dealing with the habit of immediately panicking when energy begins to move. This is psychosomatic and will take time to undo but they will get there...now that they have answers and an understanding of what is going on with them.
Of course, when the initial therapist was approached about what they had done, the defenses went up and the ego refused to acknowledge what they had done believing they did the best for their client. Did the therapist learn something new and excitedly wanted to try it on a client? Did the therapist accidentally activate kundalini? Whatever the explanation, the point I am trying to make is that integrity must win out on the day.
It does not matter if you have learned a new technique or whatever, the highest good is what must be done. If you sense you are not supposed to work with a client, refer them to someone else. If you choose to work with them, neither one of you will have a good experience and you will both be left dissatisfied. In this field of work, reputation is everything. I would rather have a non-client thank me for moving them on to someone who was of benefit to them rather than clutching a fist full of dollars and a terrible customer experience.
If you are a healer, be aware of what you do. Check what is in the highest good. Do not work on a client without their permission and explain to them what is going on. This is their right and this is your duty. It is not for you to decide what your clients need, it is for you to be the conduit for healing between the client and creator. You are the messenger, not the message. It seems to me to be obvious but it appears reminders are required every once in a while.
If you are a client, be aware of what the healer is doing for you. Ask questions about what is going on and what you are feeling and also what to expect as an outcome to a treatment. Has the healer done this before? If it is something new, how is the healer going to be guided? Why are they deciding on the technique they are using? Ask the questions. Know you are in control of your healing. You are the leader of your own healing. Do not abdicate the responsibility for your own healing to another.
When the highest good is done, Thy will is done.
