Sometimes gifts come in the most unexpected ways.
I worked on a beautiful 15-year old girl this morning—the daughter of a client who had completed his Reconnective Healing sessions, gone on to The Reconnection, and found great value in them. And so he wanted his daughter to experience some of what he had.
This young woman, KA, hasn’t had an easy time of it. Her mother died a few years ago and her father is having to single parent her. She’s going through many of the struggles young people her age go through and has made some decisions that have been harmful to her self. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this session, but I was very excited at the opportunity to work with such a young person.
The session began very gently, and I remained at the head of the table the entire time—the healing energy keeping me firmly there. At first, my hand movements were very gentle and the energy felt very nurturing, as if caressing away her pain. I got choked up pretty quickly and had to work hard not to sob out loud during the session. While I sometimes get emotional during a session, this was a bit different, and after a while I just let the tears flow as the healing continued.
The next thing that happened is that the energy in my hands picked up and they started moving about much more intensely, flapping this way and that. I felt very connected to KA as this was going on, and could feel myself healing along with her.
Then all of a sudden I felt KA’s mother come into the session! I recognized her immediately but then my mind wanted to doubt what was happening and so I asked, “Is this just because I know she lost her mother and I have such empathy for that kind of loss?”
As soon as I formed that thought in my mind, I felt my own mother come into the session! My mother and her mother were there side by side—hers working through my left hand and mine working through my right. It was so amazing—emotionally powerful and full of healing.
The energy slowly began to wind down and I felt my mother leave, but my hands continued their very gentle, caressing motions above and around KA’s head, and as the energy was dissipating, KA opened her eyes, as if sensing the change.
As the session ended, I pulled myself together and in great anticipation, asked KA what she experienced. She told me she had felt her mother there with her, holding her, and that she could feel bad energy leaving her body!
After she described a couple other things, I shared with her that I, too, recognized her mother, and my own. The connection between KA and me was very strong during the session, and how could it not be, with our mothers joined together on behalf of both our selves?
I don’t know how such things can happen, except through the grace of God.
