I happened to be visiting Ananda in the Himalayas resort when master healer Jill Banwell was also visiting it as a practitioner for a month. I had never got any kind of healing done before this but on the last day of my stay, something told me that I should be more open about it. She radiated so much calm and warmth that I thought even if nothing came out of the chakra healing session, I will feel at peace for a few hours after meeting her.
But first things first, what is chakra healing? There are several different channels located on key points of our body through which energy can flow in and out in a constant stream. And It is the frequency state of our chakras that determines the direction our energy will flow as they either draw energy into our body or release
it outward. The chakras represent not only particular parts of your physical body, but also parts of your consciousness. Your consciousness – how you perceive your reality represents everything that is possible for you to experience. (you can read more about it here. I found it very useful).
It somehow wasn’t making any sense to me. But I decided to go with an open mind. Master Jill asked me if there was anything that I thought needed attention. And I opened up to her and let her know how I had been feeling guilty about not being able to sustain my marriage. I was carrying the weight of wronging a lot of people in the process including my son. I was asked to lie down, close my eyes and follow what she was saying. She told me it’s ok to cry. I don’t know how long the process lasted but I found myself clinging on to every word she was saying. I could feel energy (in way of heat) being passed on to me despite the fact she was barely touching me. At one point, I felt like I was heaving and it lasted for a while. And I cried.
When she woke me up, I felt introspective yet strangely light. Her words had helped me let go of so much I was holding on to for nothing. It was like a closure and a new beginning. And courage to face myself and see myself in better light, to be better and kinder to myself and my relationships.
Post the session, she asked me if there was anything else bothering me. I told her, even though I feel loved, a lot of times, I feel people are closed towards me. And she asked me, if I ever thought that it might be I who comes across as closed.
And even though I would have liked to deny it, she was right. Years of low self esteem had closed my heart, blinded me because I thought that’s the only way to protect myself. It has improved over years but I find myself closed time and again in different situations. She helped me with certain positive affirmations which I’m working on.
I wish I was articulate enough to share my experience better. But I can only leave you with one thing, don’t close your mind to something just because you can’t see it. And if you know of a good healer, don’t hesitate to give it a chance.
