Today I had a very interesting realization after my session with a client. It seems the universe gives us just what we need in order to look at ourselves. My client had a painful anniversary of an event over the weekend. He so desperately needed to relax! People just don't seem to understand how important it is to relax. We don't function very well when we are always "strung out".
Oh yes! When I worked in the operating room as an anesthetist one needed to be right on, always in high gear and working very fast pumping blood, drawing up the medications, pushing the meds into the I.V. lines etc. Stress is a killer to the body. Stress is a killer to the mind. It can sometimes even kill us as we put ourselves into dangerous situations that we normally wouldn't if we were thinking straight.
Well, it seems I also was suffering from an event in my life that had reached a peak this past weekend. I needed to relax. Oh! Physician heal thyself! Would I take the time myself to relax? So.....as I led my client into trance I found myself going deeper into trance also. With every breath he took to go deeper and deeper, I also took a breath and relaxed more and more. I believe he reached a state of profound relaxation where his mind was allowed to empty of all thoughts. When the session ended we both had positively dealt with our stress. He was forced to take the time to relax and so was I.
