Fire Walk With Me

And now comes the time when I have to let go of the old and prepare to walk through fire...

I’ve been going through some difficult times lately and today I treated myself to another fabulous energy session with my healer Kathryn.

This was the culmination of a tremendous weekend where I met up with an old friend on Friday and made some new ones on Saturday.

I've had more positive excitement in the last few days than I've had in the last few months and it felt good to put my troubles aside for a little while.

I’ve been worried about my life for so long and so steadily that I’ve gotten used to the tension. Except of course when I’m irritable and exhausted and then I realize that I’ve been wearing this burden like a hair shirt. I decided I needed a treatment as soon as possible.

Once again Kathryn had me stretch out on her table and then she put her fabulous hands on me. I had been worried that we wouldn’t be able to match the power I felt during our first session, but as usual, my worries were completely unfounded.

We far exceeded the progress that we made during that initial get-together and the experience was nothing short of astounding.

I honestly don’t understand exactly how this energy business works, but I’m perfectly comfortable with that.

I can accept Kathryn’s help and acknowledge her tremendous skill without having a detailed explanation of her actions. I just know that it works and I’m very thankful.

As Kathryn worked on me, she said she could feel some ancient family energy in my body that had to be released.

“Give it permission to leave and go into the Temple of Light,” she said gently as she held on to my shoulders.

And I did just that, with all kinds of blessings and love I sent this old power that no longer serves me to a better place. This wasn’t an exorcism or a violent emotional eviction, but a gentle acknowledgement that it was time for me and this old stuff to part company.

Step into the Light

Naturally I started crying, but Kathryn assured me that this was an important part of the process, akin to washing my face—only I was washing my soul’s face.

“Your higher self needs a change,” Kathryn told me, which probably explains this disruption I’m currently going through.

I’m turning 58 next week and I had always hoped that I would’ve been in a better frame of mind at this stage of my life. But Kathryn explained that the spirit ages differently from the body and by that reckoning you’re not an adult until you reach 60.

I always breathe so deeply and slowly during these sessions and I’m so relaxed that I don’t recognize myself. Usually I’m bouncing off the four walls, talking in a rapid-fire delivery that even I have trouble understanding.
Toward the end of the session, Kathryn had me remove this barrier in my brain that separates my physical side from my spiritual self and allow the light flow through my body. It was glorious.

We talked about the struggles I may be facing in the coming months and Kathryn advised me to get in touch with my inner master, so I could walk over the hot coals of life like a firewalker and not get burned.

I don’t know what the future has in store for me—no one does. But at least now I’m feeling more relaxed and less fearful.

As I left Kathryn’s office, I actually had to steady myself against the wall while I walked down the stairs. I was weak, but in a good way, drained of all the misery that I’ve carried for so long. I felt like a toddler taking his first steps.

When I got outside, I crossed the street to go to my local deli and the owner greeted me from behind the counter.

“How you doin’, buddy?” he asked.

There was absolutely no way I could describe what was going on inside of me so I just smiled and settled for the simple response.

“I’m doing fine,” I said.

Oh Rob, you have no idea how much this post moved me. Being someone who knows (and has experienced) what you described, not only in your session but also in your personal growth, I feel elated for you because I can tell you are expanding and allowing this energy work to transform you. BRAVO!

"I honestly don’t understand exactly how this energy business works, but I’m perfectly comfortable with that.

Exactly. It's not for us to understand HOW it works, only that it does.

"As I left Kathryn’s office, I actually had to steady myself against the wall while I walked down the stairs. I was weak, but in a good way, drained of all the misery that I’ve carried for so long. I felt like a toddler taking his first steps."

Because you're letting go. And when we let go, we actually (mentally AND physically) BECOME lighter. It's like getting rid of all the baggage we've been carrying.

I wish you continued success in the work you're doing right now. And I feel such positive changes for you!

Have a super week, buddy!

Hey, Ron, how's it going?

This was an incredible experience. I am completely awed by Kathryn's skill and at the whole concept of energy work to begin with. I feel like I've stumbled into a new world and I can't wait to explore.

Thanks for your insights and support, buddy. They mean the world to me.

Take care!

I have a feeling my spirit adult age is going to be about 180, but I'm ok with that!

Stephanie Faris said...

I'm so glad she's able to help you. And hearing that we don't reach adulthood until 60 is good news!

Rob K said...

It was great, Stephanie. I'm so glad I went to see her!

@Bijoux--what the heck? No sense in rushing things! :)

It sounds as if it was a very good session. I do meditation every now and then and have included elements of yoga in my Afro-Cuban dance classes (whenever I teach them, which is not very often these days). It's incredible how much negative energy we carry around.

Greetings from London.

Rob K said...

Oh, how right you are! Negative energy is so insidious that it can take over our lives without our even knowing it.

The dance classes sound great. The next time I cone to London I'll have to take one! :)
