In the Flow with Healing Waters
Applying what I’ve learned
I have met many of you personally or professionally. You know a bit about me and my family. If you have met me, you are very aware of my passion and connection to animals. Animals of all sorts, cats, dogs, horses, even my yard pet opossum Frankie. So, it would come as no surprise, I recently started working a few days a week at a vet clinic. This has been a mostly positive experience for me and I am enjoying it. I thought at first I would just be doing computer work, playing with puppies, etc. As the weeks have gone on, I am struck by the similarities in both jobs and how often I utilize the skills I have learned at Healing Waters in my life. Let me give you a few examples. I work with a rather difficult co-worker at the vet clinic. This person is not a horrible human, just not self aware enough to understand how their behaviors, tones etc affect the others around them. Prior to my completion of the Perfect Triangle program, I may have spun out about this. Ruminating on how rude they were, how could I fix it? Maybe I should just treat them badly to teach them a lesson, or maybe there was something wrong with me and I deserved such treatment? I have learned so much about myself and how I react to situations in the Triangle program, that I no longer need to experience those emotions. I can understand this person, meet them where they are, and set healthy boundaries about the way I want to be treated. Sometimes they respond well, other times, not so much. However, again I can recognize when they don’t respond well, it’s their pattern, not mine. These tools have been instrumental in creating a healthy work environment for myself and others. Most other employees are grateful and interested in my approach to this individual. It has empowered me to have a healthy way to manage conflict.
Another example is having the ability to have Acuenergetics hand skills. I am able to quietly calm animals who are distressed. Being aware of “how I AM” through meditation practice, and using hand techniques we teach in Level 1/First Aid, I can help soothe animals and owners. Did you know between the shoulder blades is the back of the heart? It is a very helpful place to treat upset and reactivity. I find it fascinating we naturally place our hand on someone’s back when they are struggling as a measure of comfort. Another point on that channel is the palm of the hand. We also in human nature hold the hands of people experiencing struggles. We are hard wired to energetically comfort others. When you add in the understanding of bioelectricity you learn in the classes, it gives that hard wiring a direction. It’s empowering to be able to comfort others this way.
If you haven’t been able to experience some of these first hand, I suggest you check them out. They are definitely tools for life. Classes are around the corner, online and in-person options. Choose to empower yourself in your relationships.
Feeling empowered in the flow,
