What to do during your session
Take about 15 to 20 minutes (or more if you need) and write down what is going on with you. Take an assessment of where you are now. You may want to first acknowledge any positive changes you have noticed since your last session, since it's always good to be grateful for any changes you have experienced so far.
Then, write down areas of challenges in your life—things you still want to change, or places where you still feel stuck. Make a list of key negative thoughts that surface in your mind as you ponder working toward achieving your goals. These are "programs" we will be working on clearing from your subconscious mind in the session. We will also be re-wiring the brain and neural pathways over time, to hold the opposite of your negative beliefs.
You can also take a personal assessment of what's happening in your body and energy field. You may want to sit with eyes closed and scan your body. Notice any areas of tension, stress, heaviness, torque... anything unusual that doesn't feel right. All these things will be addressed in the session.
You don't necessarily have to write down all that you notice when you do this last "scan" of your body and energy field, but it will be valuable for you to take note of what's going on inside you in this way. Ultimately it will empower you to be aware of any positive shifts that take place as a result of the session.
Take as much time as you need... there's no rush. Just be with yourself as deeply as you can, and tell the truth as much as you can about what you're experiencing. All of this will support you in getting maximum healing and clearing from the session.
You may also want to start letting go of needing to be right about any negative thoughts you have about what's going on in your life. Take the most negative beliefs that you're bringing to the session today and create affirmations, such as:
Then you want to create a new identity, by affirming:
And again, say this from the tailbone area (where our old identities are stored, so we feel safe and comfortable staying where we have been...) and take a deep breath in, pulling the new energy into the whole body.
These affirmations are very powerful and really help to facilitate change at the deepest levels. As long as we want to be right about what we believe, we'll never change and always feel stuck.
Letting go of needing to be right about what we believe is an incredibly powerful act… and needs to be practiced!! Then, creating a new identity from scratch is essential, so we don't go back to our old comfortable ways of being and identifying with our old negative programs.
You can also create any other affirmations that you want to counteract the negative beliefs or programs that may have surfaced in your mind at this time. Take some time and work with all the affirmations you create. Breathe them into different chakras and areas of the body. Feel the positive energy coming into you, and be aware of the resistance it may bring up as you do this.
If the resistance is really strong, you may want to take a few minutes and feel the negative feelings being stirred up—as we often do during sessions. Just keep allowing yourself to go deeper and deeper into the negative feelings, for the purpose of making peace with and integrating the energy, so it is no longer walled off or stuck inside you.
Go deeper and deeper into the feelings, and my guides and I will be there to help you clear blocking and sabotaging energies and release the negativity and trauma stored there, as we normally do. This will help you to keep going deeper within to clear more negative energy and become more whole. Trust that you can do this, and it will work well for you.
This whole process will be very empowering for you, so please do honor your session time as a way to look at yourself and be with yourself, for the purpose of allowing a deeper level of healing to take place.
Other Things You Can Do
It's okay to be creative as part of your session, and work in whatever way you feel comfortable. One client had major issues with her mother, so I suggested working through the exercises in Love Now, Here's How, in Ch.6, p. 245, "Healing the Relationship with Your Parents." If you have major issues with your parents, you could do this exercise prior to or during your session, and get a tremendous amount of clearing as a result.
There is another process that you could include in this session. This is very helpful to gain insight into what's going on with you, and will bring up a lot of programming that can be cleared in the context of the session.
Answer to the best of your ability the following questions. Accept whatever answer comes up in your head. This is not necessarily a "logical" process, but more of an intuitive one, where you just trust whatever surfaces in your mind.
First, pick a problem or undesirable condition you want to work on. Then answer the following:1. What are my payoffs to having this condition?
Repeat each phrase and fill in the blank. After you are done, do another few rounds of each one, as you get more insight and clearing each time you do it. Also, it really feels good. And in time, you will see that the things you pray for will become the things that you are grateful for!!
