Recently I have noticed some significant changes in my little man. Because kids are so young, and have fewer trapped negative emotions, they show improvement to energy therapy fairly quickly. Since I last wrote about ET, my son is off of a stool softener that he has needed for 4 years. I know for a fact that he needed it, because if we forgot it for 2 days straight, he would become painfully backed up. And if I lowered his dose too much, the same thing would happen. He’d get so backed up that he would be doubled over in pain, and almost vomit. He’s been completely off the medicine for 17 days.
Other new developments that I attribute to ET, include my son’s being able to tolerate going to a movie in a theater. We have tried to take him to a movie two other times- and both times he dragged me out of the theater either just as the lights went down, or during previews. Today he was not afraid of the dark. The volume of the previews and movie didn’t freak him out. And he had no trouble at all (except for a little impatience when the movie got slow).
Finally, I took my little man out to lunch on Monday. As he was looking at the kids’ menu, he had to choose an entree, a side, and a drink. The entree was no surprise: chicken strips. But he asked for broccoli as his side. That totally surprised me. This is a kid who is a picky eater, and who likes no vegetables, except corn. When he was younger, he tried broccoli and didn’t like it at all. So, he ordered it, it came, and he tried it. He didn’t love it. But then, he ate a small bite… and actually swallowed it. My rules for trying new foods are for him to try a bite. He doesn’t have to swallow it. If I forced him to swallow something he doesn’t like, he will vomit. I don’t know why he wanted to try it (probably something he saw on TV), but I am very excited that he wants to give more foods a try.
As for me, there is much work to do, however, I continue to have pain relief in my low back and sciatic. They bother me some, but not as much. As Mary is able to facilitate removing (clearing) my trapped emotions, other ones sometimes pop up; like peeling layers of an onion. She let me know that the physical therapy I’m doing is also freeing up trapped emotions so that she can facilitate my body clearing them. She also discovered other things going on inside me that need to be dealt with before my sciatica will resolve.
As one negative emotion is released, and other ones pop up, these other ones will settle in an area of the body that has already had discomfort at one time or another (such as my back or leg). When a negative emotion has attached itself to a part of the body (like one particular spot of the large intestine, as was in my case) causing pain, discomfort, muscle spasm, and more- and then the emotion is released, there is physical relief. When no other issues come up in that area of the body, after that release, the relief is permanent. I realize that for people who have no experience with energy therapy, this all sounds like hocus pocus; but with what I have experienced, I know it’s very real.
Other types of energy therapy: chiropractic, accupuncture, bowenwork, massage therapy, and more, are very good at getting stuck energy unstuck. The negative energy that can become trapped in a spot in the body is freed up, resulting in relief from pain and discomfort. However, that negative energy is still in the body, and eventually becomes lodged again, causing pain and discomfort again. With energy therapy, this negative energy is removed permanently. And a skilled therapist will discover what mechanisms are creating lots of negative energy in the first place, and will work with the client to teach them how to prevent this.
A final thought that I was recently reminded about, is that while we are all here on this planet earth, in this plane of existance, we each have our own journey to follow. Along the way, we have lessons to learn. And that as much as I may stress about my son and his difficulties, at times, I need to remember that he has his own lessons to learn, and his own path to follow. Of course, I do what I can to help him; but it’s his life to live and learn. So, at night when he’s tired and crying to me that it’s all too hard (school work and vision therapy), and that he needs a break, I hold him and try to soothe him, and explain that yes, it is hard right now, it will get easier, and that when he’s older, he’ll have an advantage over his buddies. He’ll have had the experience of being required to work at things were difficult, when he didn’t want to, and make it past the difficulty. He will have a strength that many people don’t develop until much later in life.
