When my client arrived I had her fill out a consultation card and offered a glass of water. Music was playing softly in the background with candles lit – she mentioned how nice the space felt.
Upon reviewing the client’s consultation card she indicated her stress level was 3.5 out of 4 but didn’t know why. We started a discussion to explore this more. She revealed it was a mix of things: wedding stress/pressures from “outside noise” as well as feeling ‘blah’, lost, not knowing what she really wants when it comes to career. She also indicated on her form that she wants to achieve a sense of peace & calm from our session.
I also asked the client how she relates and refer to her spirituality; she stated she refers to God as God or Higher Power. I felt this will help our session go smoothly and resonate with her on a deeper level.
I continued to give the client a run-down of our session and reaffirmed that she has control at all times so that she will not be forced to do anything that she is not ready for and we can stop at any time if anything feels uncomfortable. She seemed to appreciate this and appeared to feel comfortable and safe.
CHAKRA ASSESSMENT WITH PENDULUM
The chakra assessment was done with my opal pendulum that has been programmed by myself. I started off by saying a prayer with the client (I also offered for her to say one to herself while I said mine but she insisted I say this for the both of us):
Dear Higher Power,
I ask you to shine your light upon me clearing away any blocks & debris to easily access the power of the greater mind. Allow me to be present & make this moment holy.
The pendulum was then used to assess each chakra over the hand, then over the client’s body to cross reference. Each chakra was assessed with three ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions: “Is the [Root] Chakra balanced? Under- Energized? Over-Energized”. The following was recorded for each:
Upon completion of the chakra assessment with the pendulum the client and I proceeded to have a discussion of the results.
The root chakra appeared to be in good balanced. When I spoke to the client about her family life and her sense of safety and security she shared she feels really good with this aspect of her life.
The sacral chakra showed signs of imbalance. The client has a good balance of intimacy in her relationship and has no concerns there however the imbalance may come from her creativity. Dance and performance plays a huge role in the client’s life. She initially shared she loves the flow of creativity and experiences joy when in the creative process of her dance jobs when she is choreographing routines and teaching in front of a class. However lately she finds herself questioning her creativity as to what capacity to use her creativity and what purpose it serves in her life. So this could be why the sacral chakra was a bit off balance.
The solar plexus also showed signs of imbalance. Upon speaking with the client I learned that she feels confident and carries a good self –esteem for the most part but often doubt creeps in and takes over as she allows outside influence effect how she feels about herself, doubt her talents and deservingness of jobs.
The heart chakra read that it was under-energized. I felt because the client was carrying some residual feelings of unforgiveness and sometimes found it hard to let go she has been carrying this within her heart chakra which resulted in her pulling back and becoming weary about who she can trust in her industry.
The throat chakra was under-energized. The client has a hard time communicating to others, often feeling she cannot talk to anyone or misunderstood when she does speak to trusted sources so she has resorted to keeping quiet, therefore holding back from speaking her truth and upset with her feelings inside. She even said “it has been going on for so long that I don’t really think about it anymore” she just got used to being quiet but this has led to her often feeling frustrated and alone. I explained that there is a healthy balance of speaking her truth and speaking from a place of love. We got further into a discussion of her “quietness” came from fear – fear of being judged, fear of being vulnerable, and fear of being seen for who she really is. She expressed that she wants to speak her truth but does not know how. I affirmed that we will release the stagnant energy circling the throat, heart, solar plexus and other areas (our discussion also helped moved things on a conscious level) through our meditation, aura clearing and chakra balancing and the client seemed happy about that. She also stated that things are starting to make sense and she can see how things were manifesting in her life because of the thoughts and “baggage” she was carrying.
The third eye appeared to be balanced. She expressed that generally she feels clear-headed, alert and has a good memory.
The crown chakra displayed to be imbalanced and this was because she resorted to “doing it alone” and not trusting and allowing a Higher Power to intervene which she herself confirmed she does believe in. One of my client’s first words to me was that she “felt lost” and “blah”. I explained that the closing off or blockage in her crown chakra would lead to thoughts and feelings of loneliness, doubt, emptiness and confusion when we don’t allow or trust that a Higher Power is guiding us. I assured that once we release any blocks and impurities in the crown chakra she would create a clearer path for the Higher Power to help and that it was okay to give permission to a higher source for help and guidance. She seemed to feel relieved and refreshed by this reminder.
Based on our conversation it was clear to see why certain chakras displayed signs of imbalance and why the client was feeling the way she was in her physical experience. She started off feeling lost, alone and “blah” and started doubting her purpose and career path. She was doubting her creativity (sacral chakra), whether she was deserving or good enough for great opportunities due to other people’s judgements and negative comments (solar plexus), carried a heavy burden of unforgiveness for certain people who criticized her and made her feel lesser than (heart chakra), she also has trouble expressing her true feelings and thoughts with others (throat chakra) which has left her feeling alone, frustrated and feeling she has to “do this alone” which has closed off her trust and opening to a Higher Power (crown chakra). The client seemed to have gained clarity and peace once we discussed why things were happening the way they were in her life due to what was happening on an energetic level.
CHAKRA BALANCING WITH STONES
As the client was already in a laying position we continued her treatment with chakra balancing with stones.
I had cleansed the stones in a glass jar with salt water under a full moon the night before and charged it for 4 hours in the sunlight.
The stones used on the client were:
I placed the stones on the corresponding chakra areas then asked the client to gently close her eyes as I talk her through a visualization.
I guided her to inhale slowly into the area of our focus and imagine the colour of the stone penetrating to the chakra. Visualizing the healing (turquoise blue) colour radiating out from the chakra into the world around her I gently affirmed a positive statement such as “I speak my truth with divine love” and encouraged her to expand her light in that corresponding area energizing her entire body. We proceeded to do this with all seven chakras. I ended with wrapping a white light around her body from crown to toe and affirming she will always be divinely protected, guided and provided for. This practice took around 10 minutes. Once we were complete I offered the client water again and told her to take her time to get up. √
I checked in with the client again and she said she was feeling good and relaxed.
I wanted to give the client something to solidify the clearing and work she did today so we agreed on two things: prayer and an affirmation.
We wrote a small prayer together calling on the help of the Higher Power which she was to practice every day in good times and bad.
The mantra also was to affirm that she is being divinely guided and that she will trust and allow the help in her life. She was instructed to do this 3x morning, day and night.
The client seemed happy about this and said she will do this.
After our session the client mentioned she felt relaxed and much lighter stating now she knows what to work on as our session brought her much clarity and she will definitely be seeing me again. A follow up email was later sent where she mentioned “Thanks so much for all your help! I'm definitely feeling lighter after yesterday's session and just trusting that God knows what's best for me and will help guide me”
As this is the start of my client shifting out of old behaviours and patterns I look forward to assisting her in her journey as she has mentioned she will be coming back to see me again.
The only thing I would change about our session is perhaps just doing the chakra assessment with the client laying down and using the pendulum over each chakra as opposed to the hand. I will also continue strengthening my ability to see auras.
