Taking a leaf out of the art therapy lexicon, I suggested to my client we take a pause from the journey work today, to give her a chance to process the work done so far. In the end, I am not sure it was really required, but its a good practice to work slowly. There was enough going on anyway.
I have been waking up at 4am for the last week. I am not sure if this is related to the work I am doing with my client or not. Last night when I woke up, in my imaginal space, I saw a slimy, creepy man. Literally slimy. He was quite scary, bordering aggressive. He felt intrusive and prying.
It reminded me how many years ago I had done a healing ceremony with a shaman, and he explained how he had had 'something' visit him in the night; an 'entity'/energetic presence relating to the healing work with me. This felt like that. A something, some male, creepy energetic presence showing up, showing itself to me,
My sense is that this does relate to the work I am doing with my client. That's how it felt. I am checking in with her to see if this is resonate or not. That's how we are working. Me journeying and sharing knowings that come in other ways to her as reflections. Me working with whats there, providing the ingredients for release and softening. Her, seeing if, how the reflections land, always invited to decline a noticing or reflection. It's her healing journey, I am just undertaking this work on her behalf towards her healing and the fullest expression of her wellbeing and personal power.
