"Hello Everyone!" sings a strong, upbeat voice at the other end of the room. It's Eileen, the teacher and creator of Biofield Tuning and I'm finally her class! The 14 students contain our excitement because we inherently KNOW that what we are about to learn will forever change lives - ours and our clients.
The top-floor studio of the old train station in Burlington, Vermont has a view of the buzzing downtown district. However, the back of the building holds a breathtaking view to the West over Lake Champlain and the mountains of New York. Lovely! I'm always up for a great view, but I bring my focus back into the classroom after the short break. After all, I AM here to LEARN!!!
We get started with a quick overview of the techniques and protocols and then we're ready to start our hands-on portion. Each student gets "trained" while working on a fellow student. It's my turn and the forks are longer than I've used before so they feel unwieldy. I feel energy with my hands all the time, but this is different. The forks are doing the work and I'm doing the listening. Working my way through the student's field, I pick up several places of incoherence. The forks naturally resolve the static-y sound and the tones become clear and open with the repeated strikes on my trusty hockey puck. Towards the end of the process, I feel the weight - yes, energy has weight! - and finish the session. My fellow student says she feels significant relief when I'm done and truthfully, I am relieved, too. It's more tiring than it looks!
In those moments, I learned to listen, feel, and process through the energy patterns of my "client" in ways I had never felt. These powerful techniques are in some ways still "works in progress" even though they've been developing over the past 20 years. By introducing coherence in our energetic fields, we clear the "static" and it is static which causes us to develop and stay in our old patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving.
My particular group included several New Yorkers - some who were still affected by the attacks on the Twin Towers in 2001. One man requested that his session focus on resolution of recurring pain and injuries with his left foot. As the student began the session, minor issues from birth on were resolved quickly. Then, our fellow student found The Spot. We all felt heaviness in the room and as it turned out, that place corresponded with the timing of 9/11! As he relayed his experiences from that day, emotions he didn't know were still there came up.
The practitioner continued to bring coherence to the area and he was able to let go of those old stuck emotions. After several minutes, the emotion passed and the heaviness in the room lifted. A sense of relief and lightness took over, and the session ended with smiles and hugs!
But wait, what about that foot? All I know is that his pain was reduced immediately and if I hear more you can bet I'll share it here.
UPDATE 8/9/16 - As promised!
I recently heard from the gentleman with the foot pain. The following is the exchange between Biofield Tuning Practitioners and Students:
A: "I experienced a benefit from the session [T.] did. This was during our training. Eileen, as well added to the healing in the latter part. There are various causes for neuropathy, in my case nerve damage on both feet from a smash collision. I did physical therapies, acupuntcure, hyperbaric, cryotherapy as well as nutritional supplementation, IV's, B12, niacin. That Biofield Tuning session though had a transformative effect on me and the trauma associated with the damage."
J: "Thanks, A. How has your neuropathy been since your session with [T.]?"
A: "Hi J, more on the side of ease than discomfort. I sense that there's layers that present themselves and how I approach this, becomes the fulcrum as to the next outcome. Does this make sense? The session at Level 1 [training] was one of those "fulcrums" which precipitated greater ease."
In my experience energy or vibrational therapies - like anything worth pursuing - take time and as stated above, often present themselves in layers. This modality works exceptionally well in conjunction with other therapies such as Reiki, flower essences, and crystals.
If feeling better sounds good to you, I invite you to consider this modality.
If you're local to the DC area and would like a sample of this work, come to my workshop on Saturday, August 13th at 2 pm. Check the Calendar for details.
