How much is too much? Take up some space!

How much is too much? Take up some space!

Connect To The Heart, Energy - Sound, Touch and Smells, Tools and Techniques
  Space. The idea of space has been on my mind lately. Perhaps because I have lived with an architect in my past, have friends who are designers and architects, or maybe simply because I am aware of my own body and the world around me but I have had many conversations about space. Creating space. Taking up space. Configuring space. Needing space. It comes up in therapy sessions with clients - those that feel they take up too much space in an effort to get the attention they so desire and those that take up too little space in an effort to be invisible. Collapsing. Expanding. Being. It comes up in my own life as I am trying to configure my time and space to meet all the demands…

Modalities to Support Healing on Many Layers

Energy - Sound, Touch and Smells, Tools and Techniques
There is this moment when the fog lifts. I'm not sure what has happened exactly but something has shifted. I have clarity in thought. Things are... crisper. I consider for a moment was has happened. I was on the table and she was very gently lengthening my spine. The pressure seemed insignificant. And yet, there was a moment when something shifted and energy flowed more effortlessly. This is but one example of why I practice and study craniosacral therapy. It works. It's effective and gentle. What I have noticed with many clients who are seeking therapy, is that over time our experiences are stored in our bodies. We are unable to process them at the time (for many reasons) and so they get "stuck" and stored. Sometimes it is minute…

Small Acts of Bravery

Energy - Sound, Touch and Smells, Tools and Techniques
There are times in our lives when the Universe seems to throw everything its got at us. It comes from all directions and we can't keep up the fight. It breaks us down. We crumble. We fall under the weight of it all. We cry. Too often at these times, we shout WHY?! Why us? Why now? What do you want from me? Do you become more rigid and inflexible? Do you become more fluid and surrender? This past week, I watched this happen to others and I've talked to people that seem crushed under the weight of the world. I recall times in my own life when I have felt this way. Those moments, alone, when you finally surrender to the weight of it all and pray for it…

What is Your Impact?

What is Your Impact?

Energy - Sound, Touch and Smells, Tools and Techniques
We are not unlike this ball on a string. Our thoughts, words, and actions once set in motion is energy that will collide, affect whatever is in its path. We have an impact. What is my impact? I've been thinking about this a lot lately. What is my impact? How are others in my life impacting me? Do people consider the impact that they will have before they choose to act (or not act)? My impact can be big or small depending on my mood, energy, and words selected. I was at lunch the other day, and not being mindful of my words and actions, and so the impact that it had was unintended. At the time my mind was focused on something else - I wasn't being present to…
