How do you work? I always get this question what exactly does a session entail? What modalities (structures) do you work with? Did you go to school for this? Considering you are paying good money for a healing experience, it's a fair question to want to know what it entails. So my best way to describe what I do is to call it call it Energetic Improv.
Energetic Improv means first showing up in presence. Letting go of ego, the mind, all the story, and expectations. So that we can be here NOW. (Think Eckhart Tolle's The Power of Now.)
The next step is to hone in on the energy and to sense where the opening is. Where is the seam in the matrix that we can tap? To do this takes a whole-body listening experience. I am sensing what is next. I often close my eyes and allow all my senses to blend and begin to hear, see, and feel what's up.
The experience of being a medicine woman for me entails channeling (hearing messages for people), mediumship (talking and often merging with people's souls, both past and present), and shamanic (or transformational) healing.
Where I differentiate from a lot of healers is that I don't have a particular modality. This is the improv part of the work. WE, together in healing, all have to be game for whatever comes up. It can take many forms. I can be on the floor physically, embodying the energy at play. It can look like I am an actress, taking on another person's physicality, including their walk, talk, and cadence. I have given hugs to clients from past family members, done patty cake baker's man, and embodied Shakespearean players. Whatever is called upon at that moment - I accept. It is that simple.
I am merely a conduit. There is no structure, guidelines, or rules. That initially can be scary until we see the freedom in accepting the now - and acting upon it. That is indeed living in the moment. That is the new way of doing things, and being in the Now + Action = Energetic Improv.
