“Meditatively enlivened,” were the words that repeated themselves in my mind throughout the third session of Facial Reflex Therapy created by Lone Sorensen in which I was engaged, offered by Deva/ Debra Troy. I knew immediately what that meant, since I often receive guidance in bits and pieces from Spirit. I was deeply relaxed as her hands worked their magic and felt energized at the same time. A pleasantly buzzy sensation.
I informed her that over the past week, I had challenges sleeping, due, in part to so many ideas barreling through that insist on being written, so I was glad to be taking the time to surrender to the experiences in the time we had together. Adding to the wee hours in the morning insomnia is the ongoing concern about my sister who is in the hospital again due to a cardio-pulmonary condition. I am acutely aware of my own health and the need to be mindful of choices I make, when a little more than a year ago, I had no idea what was brewing under the surface. We don’t know what we don’t know, until we do.
During our session, I made that comment, as Deva pointed out that my GI system was speaking to me and calling for attention, so she worked those respective points on my face. I have also been drinking probiotics to assist in supporting my digestion when it gets wonky.
Another very sweet happening. As Deva pressed points above my ears, I had a lovely memory of a time when, as a child, my mother would run her fingers through my hair and around my ears, like a Ferris wheel. I smiled at the recollection. Although the modality is not considered body psychotherapy, it does evoke emotions, since we, as human beings, are body, mind and spirit combined.
As I am engaging in this weekly experience, I am aware of deeper delving into my psyche’, unearthing memories and their meaning for my current frame of reference.
Feeling tuned up and a few years more youthful, I waltzed out into the bright sunshine of the day, with energy to write, clean, take a brisk walk and spend time with friends, facing life full on.
