Have you been feeling it? This sense of emotional confusion that comes out of nowhere and makes you feel like you just can’t go on? Doesn’t it just feel like you are climbing up and down a mountain of emotions that leave you feeling fear-filled one moment and completely elated the next? The last few weeks have been rough for everyone, I think. Elizabeth Peru, an astrologist, referred to it as “reaching a breaking point.” I completely agree.

In the Buddhist teachings they talk about the path to enlightenment and how every soul is looking for their way back to God or Universal source. We all choose a different path on how we get there but eventually we all go to the top.

It is in these moments of emotional struggle that we are at our greatest moment of clarity. That can be hard to hear. Especially when you are in the throes of emotional angst. But emotional clarity only comes when you are at your breaking point. It can be subtle, or it can be dramatic.

The best way to handle this shift in emotional consciousness is to take a breath and identify exactly what you are feeling. Next decide what you need and what you want to do about it. Don’t be afraid to look at what isn’t serving you anymore. It takes courage and determination to change.

Right now, that same shift in emotional consciousness is happening at a global level. We are watching it play out in the media every day. The teenagers that survived the shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida looked right into the camera and told the nation that we are the adults and it is time we started acting like it. That was a call to action if I ever heard one.

We are all connected. What is happening on the international stage is, in my mind, a very large representation of what is happening to each of us on a smaller scale. We are being called to action – to honour what we need, decide what right, what is compassionate, honest and truthful. We are being reminded to have a heart.

That journey up the mountain can be tough, but you are not alone. We all doing it. We are all connected. Globally and individually we are all reaching a breaking point. Now we have to decide what to do about it. Individually and together.

Successful people keep notes. They write down their ideas, so they don’t forget them. They don’t act on every idea but on occasion, they go back through their notes and see what inspires them. A new project can be born from an idea they had years ago.

The same principle can be used as a tool to help you develop your intuition and achieve more spiritual awareness.

Whether you are consciously aware of it or not we are all connected to a higher source of wisdom. Taking a moment to write down what you receive in a flash of insight can help you on your journey of consciousness and spiritual growth.

I am often asked how I developed my intuition. My answer? I did it through journaling. The simple act of writing out my thoughts and feelings helped me to tease out what was wisdom and what was just my ego. When I saw it written down on paper it didn’t take long to see what a huge difference there was between the two.

I also learned how my expectations could hamper receiving intuitive insights. For example, if I asked a question while in meditation and didn’t receive an answer right away my immediate response would be to feel discouraged and frustrated.  Yet, my day would be filled with interesting encounters. I would hear a song on the radio and a line from the song would answer the question. Or I would see a picture that made a deep emotional impression. The answer would come to me from a word or phrase picked up in a conversation. Or a book on a shelf picked up at random that would fall open at a passage that told me what I needed to know. Taking notes showed me that I was always getting the answer I had been looking for I just needed to be more open to how I was receiving the answers.

Life isn’t always what we expect but we can always expect an answer. Taking note may help you to see that more clearly and become more adept at understanding and learning from your intuition. The universe works in mysterious ways. We need to be more open to the mystery and take note.

jzwpd8inebdigjcwcgdxdni4qmvguc3v.jpgWelcome to 2018! A year of new beginnings and possibilities. I have to say I am finding the astrological and numerical predictions for this year to be intriguing. A colleague of mine forwarded an article written by Simone Matthews1. It was my first introduction to her work and I found her post to be very encouraging. In terms of numerology 2018 is a Universal year 11, a master number which means that it is a year of potential. It signifies that there is an increased energy vibration happening in 2018 that affects all of us. It is a year of increased potential for growth, learning, manifesting and transforming your life. Now more than ever we are being called to be aware of the power of our thoughts and beliefs. The potential is tremendous.

The Buddhists say that every day is a new day. With that in mind I encourage you to embrace each day as a new one, filled with potential, possibilities and choice. Each morning when you wake up why not give yourself permission to thank the universe for this day and all its possibilities. Remember that spiritual law stipulates that the universe’s purpose is to support and manifest whatever you choose to believe. In a master year such as this there is great power in learning how to consciously choose a new way of being every single day.

I am often asked how to handle the negative thoughts that filter into one’s mind despite all best intentions. What I have learned to do is to acknowledge the negative thought, breathe and then consciously shift my mind into a positive thought. In doing this I am giving myself a break and instructing my ego to choose a different reaction. It doesn’t stop the negative thoughts, but it does put me in a more positive mental position of being in control of how I manage myself energetically and emotionally. Don’t kid yourself. The negative thoughts will always be there. It is how you choose to handle them that is the secret. So, learn to be kind to yourself and breathe. This is a year of possibility and miracles can happen in the simplest of ways. You are divinely loved, and the universe wants to help you embrace that.

This is a year of choice.

Namaste,
Atherton

Fear is a funny thing

A very wise man once said, “When you push through the fear, you find out what you are made of.”

Fear is a funny thing. We are afraid of fear. We will do almost anything to avoid fear, but we never really take note of how much we live in fear on a day to day basis. Odd, isn’t it?

Fear can be an enigma. Most of us don’t really think about it but we can be afraid of a lot of things all the time. Because of that, we don’t realize how much stress and anxiety it creates in our life either.

For example, how often do you feel anxious? How often to you find yourself worrying? These are varying shades of fear. Fear can be classified into two major categories. One is legitimate fear and the other is manufactured fear.

Going for a walk in the woods and being charged by a bear, is legitimate fear. Being afraid of being attacked by a bear when there is no bear present, is manufactured fear. How you handle each situation is different, though. If you see a bear, run. If you are constantly worried about running into a bear when you are out for a walk, all that does is ruin the experience of being out for a lovely walk.

It takes courage to overcome manufactured fear. That courage comes when you start to listen to your own manufactured fear and start to push back. Challenge it. Ask “why?” Manufactured fear creates a lot of shadow demons in our lives that only keep us small. They dance in the background recesses of our mind with threatening statements that create the “what if” scenario’s that never really manifest. All they do, at the end of the day, is keep us in a mind state of feeling unhappy, miserable, small and afraid to embrace life the way we want to enjoy it. It erodes our self-esteem and makes us feel incapable of ever accomplishing anything.

It takes more courage to stand up to your own inner fears that is manufactured by the ego. Why? Because it is an ongoing battle that no one ever sees. No one can help you here, except you. There are no white knights to save you. Clients are always surprised to learn that fear will always be there. It never goes away. Even the most confident of people still deal with fear, every single day. The difference for confident people is that they know where the battle line is, and they step up to it every day, secure in the knowledge that today they can overcome this manufactured fear once again.

Are we being of service to teenagers when we try to medicate them with antidepressants?

Here is a story of one young woman who overcame panic attacks that immobilized her to the point where she stopped attending school.

In the spring of 2003 Charlene began to suffer panic attacks. She began to notice increased periods of anxiousness and shortly thereafter began to suffer periods of unconsciousness and fainting. The fainting spells could occur at any time, under any circumstances but they were primarily occurring while she was in school. Over time the fainting began to occur in social situations and eventually resulted in her fainting at home when she was resting or walking around the house. Charlene’s mother said that her overall wellness seemed to be a factor as they noticed she would faint more when she had a cold or the flu.

Charlene was examined by her doctor and numerous blood tests were done. All results were normal. Her doctor, being very through also ordered an ECG, EKG, heart monitoring, CAT scan and a MRI. Again all tests gave normal results. Charlene was beginning to have increased periods of fatigue and feelings of listlessness at this point. She was already under the care of a chiropractor and he had not found anything out of the ordinary that would explain her periods of anxiety or fainting spells.

Charlene was referred to a Child Therapist  and by the time that I met her, she had been in talk therapy for over a year. There was no noticeable improvement, her feelings of anxiety were becoming more pronounced and it was decided by her heath care team that a period of rest from school for a semester would be in order.

Charlene came to the Paradigm Centre in the winter of 2006. She was 17 years old and had been off school since June 2006. She presented as a quiet, well-behaved young lady. She was well groomed but walked with her head down and her voice low and soft. She was anxious and wouldn’t make eye contact. She said that she had been referred by her therapist and her physician. She told me that they were thinking of putting her on anti-depressants and recommended she be admitted to a mental health treatment centre.  She said she was afraid, didn’t want to go to a treatment centre and didn’t want to take drugs. She wanted to know if I could help her. I said we would see. I couldn’t make her any promises because energy work depended on her and where she was willing to go. I also explained to her that with energy work I could only walk beside her on her path. Energy work doesn’t do anything the mind can’t handle or the body will not accept. I explained to her that it would take some time, but how much time would depend on her, where she was willing to go, how she handled the work and how often she did the sessions.

In the initial appointment, we reviewed her current family history. Charlene explained to me that she began to have panic attacks when she was 15. She found Grade 9 to be a difficult transition and only had one best friend in high school at the time. She had loved elementary school and felt that the first six years of school were some of the best years of her life. When she moved to junior high school she found it hard because the teachers “treated us (students) all very poorly”, she said.

Charlene said her childhood was normal and she was very happy. She was really close to her mom, brother and her dad. She said that she loved camping and playing cards with her dad, her brother could be a pest sometimes but they got along well most of the time and that her mom was her best friend. When she was little she had lots of imaginary friends, was good at keeping herself occupied, played well with others and had lots of friends at school.

When I examined Charlene’s aura I could immediately tell she was an Indigo[1]. Indigo children are highly intuitive, sensitive, extremely creative and can be very independent. Indigo children have a tendency to view the world with a different pair of eyes. They see the world in all its many forms. They need to experience the world in a creative, tactile way, which means that they learn by experience, touch and sound. They can read people very quickly but are easily confused when they begin to understand that the world does not treat them with the same respect and understanding. This often leads them into thinking that there is “something wrong with me”, “I am weird”, “nobody understands me”. As a result they often suffer from anxiety, panic attacks and will withdraw into the safety of their home life, or friends or unfortunately if the first two options are not available to them, develop addictions to self medicate or tune out.

I asked Charlene if she knew what an “Indigo” was. She told me she had heard of them and always wondered if she were one of them. When I explained to her how they see and experience the world, she got tears in her eyes and said, “Yes, that is what I feel.” At this point Charlene took a deep breath and began to relax physically. Her energy field opened up and I was more easily able to “see” what we were dealing with in her situation.

After Charlene lay down on the table we began energy work. First I ran my hands over her energy field to feel the flow. We gently worked with the body’s innate wisdom to uncover and remove these blockages to her emotional and physical fields primarily in the chakra of self-esteem or third chakra.[2]

When we were finished I explained to Charlene that she may feel really tired or really jazzed. If she was tired she needed to rest. She was not to kid herself about the level of fatigue and she may feel like she had been hit by a bus. She may be weepy or sad. She was just to rest, let herself cry, or if she felt moody to write or draw out her feelings. She needed to drink a lot of water and be careful driving, as she may feel lightheaded for a day or two. I told her that the clearing would subside within 24 – 48 hours. I also explained this to her mother so that she would receive additional support if this did happen. 

Two weeks later Charlene reported that she felt really good for a week but then the past week had been all downhill.  She said her anxiety had increased and she felt depressed. 

I told her that this type of reaction was quite normal and was an indication that the body was accepting the changes and beginning to heal and release. She said she “knew that” and was quite comfortable with the process. In this session the body identified blockages in her hormones and reproductive organs.

At her third session, one week later, Charlene reported that she “felt really good”.  I noted that when she arrived for this session her head was up, her eyes were brighter, and she was making eye contact with me when she spoke. With the body’s wisdom and permission we worked on feelings related to “always feels like a 5th wheel” and fears of “never fitting in”. Her body was dehydrated so we worked with balancing out body hydration and we discussed the importance of drinking lots of pure water. 

I did not see Charlene again for five weeks due to holidays. When she arrived for her session she said that she had returned to school. She told me that she “was apprehensive” but was “doing ok”. In this session we continued to work on emotional blockages related to her intuitive feelings around  “don’t want to offend my parents”, “fear of expression”, “who am I”, “don’t know who I am”, “confused about life” “something wrong with me”, “I am different”. We spent a lot of time talking about free will and the free will of others. We talked about different coping strategies on how to deal with her intuitive feelings and how it applied to her everyday life. We also discussed what to do with those feelings. 

Children who are highly intuitive are naturally energetically empathic so it is very easy for them to pick up on other people’s feelings and fears. If they don’t understand how to distinguish between what they are feeling and what the other person is feeling, they begin to think it all belongs to them. They start to have what they commonly refer to as “crazy thoughts” and “can’t understand where these thoughts come from”. They interpret this as “their problem” and “there is something wrong with me” and “no one will understand and think I am crazy”. But once you teach an Indigo or intuitive child how to separate their feelings from other people’s feelings, they calm down dramatically and begin to understand what to do about it. They learn how to be conscious of their own feelings and recognize that they have choices on how they respond to the world around them. 

At the eighth week of sessions Charlene said things were going well. She certainly gave every appearance of looking like it was. When she arrived she looked like a different person. I almost didn’t recognize her. She walked in confident, head up, sharply dressed, her hair was nicely done, her voice clear and articulate with direct eye contact. She looked quite stunning. We worked at clearing emotions from her mother’s past. These were subconscious emotional layers that Charlene carried in support of her mother and was totally unaware of their existence. This again often happens with Indigo/intuitive children. If they feel another person’s pain, they will often pick it up and carry it in their own field out of love and devotion for another. This weighs them down because they don’t know what to do with it and leads to confusion because they can’t understand why the other person doesn’t suddenly get better. As a result of this energetic exchange they begin to feel “useless” or ask, “Who am I?” or say, “I don’t know who I am”. This begins another cycle of anxiety, depression or panic because they don’t know what to do next. 

We discussed the importance of loving another enough to let them learn how to “walk” with their own emotions. I explained to her that her mother trusted her enough to learn how to walk when she was born, so she should learn to “trust” her mother enough to figure out how to handle her own emotional issues. This means energetically, allowing her mother to feel her own issues and if Charlene was concerned for her, then to practice the art of “sending love”. We also discussed some energetic emotional guidelines that I had developed over the years as a result of working with highly intuitive people. They are: 1. Just because you know, doesn’t mean you do. 2. Wait to be asked. 3. Do only what is asked. 4. If you are not asked and you are concerned just love them with your heart. 5. If you feel another person’s emotions enter into your field, you have the right to choose to let that emotion go, so do so. 

At Charlene’s ninth session she reported that things were going well at school. She said she was still having problems with fainting spells so we asked for and received permission to work with the physical body. We worked with balancing out the body’s ability to deal with sugar. I asked her to follow a sugar free (and no artificial sweeteners) guideline for two weeks. I have also found over the course of working with intuitive children or Indigos that they are very sensitive to sugars, artificial sweeteners, wheat, and additives. If they can be encouraged to follow a natural, wheat free diet and drink water and natural fruit juices it is much easier for them to cope physically and emotionally. 

As we balanced out the physical body we talked about coping mechanisms for Indigos. Indigos easily connect to fear, especially when projected by others. As a result of their ability to connect energetically to other people’s emotions they begin to fear that they created the fear in the first place or are at least responsible for fear. This will again cause them to withdraw and become overwhelmed with emotional responsibility. Parents unfortunately magnify these feelings when, in their efforts to protect their children, they tell them all the things they can’t do, or shouldn’t do but fail to explain what they can do or how to handle a situation if it should arise. 

We talked about understanding how the world does not need to be a scary place and how to use your intuitive abilities as a coping mechanism. We worked through some practical applications of different social scenarios and I showed her different ways to use her intuitive abilities as well as the “energetic emotional guidelines” to think her way through a problem. 

When you show Indigos how to use their intuition instead of being afraid of it they quickly see that they have options and choices and they begin to naturally choose very practical solutions and then don’t find the outside world so overwhelming. They learn that what they are feeling is valid. What they are feeling is true for them. They learn how to separate their feelings from another person’s feelings and yet still retain their enormous capacity for love and empathy for themselves and others without being overwhelmed and fearful. 

It is important to remember that Indigos experience the world around them in a tactile way. Once they are taught how to use their intuitive gifts in relation to how they feel, they very quickly learn how to “feel” their way through any type of problem. They learn how to think on their feet. When this happens they relax and demonstrate how highly motivated, intelligent, loving, and empathic they truly are. 

Charlene knew that she didn’t need to take drugs to solve her panic attacks and anxiety. Thankfully, her parents, doctor and therapist supported an alternative management method, namely energy work. In this case, therapy included: clearing chakra energy blockages, helping the client understand her won thoughts and feelings, and clarifying her emotional responsibilities, as well as enhancing her diet. 

Charlene returned to school after being off school for 6 months. At the time of publication Charlene had finished high school and was preparing for University. She demonstrated a sense of confidence, power and joy as she prepared to tackle her future.

Have you been feeling it? This sense of emotional confusion that comes out of nowhere and makes you feel like you just can’t go on? Doesn’t it just feel like you are climbing up and down a mountain of emotions that leave you feeling fear-filled one moment and completely elated the next? The last few weeks have been rough for everyone, I think. Elizabeth Peru, an astrologist, referred to it as “reaching a breaking point.” I completely agree.

In the Buddhist teachings they talk about the path to enlightenment and how every soul is looking for their way back to God or Universal source. We all choose a different path on how we get there but eventually we all go to the top.

It is in these moments of emotional struggle that we are at our greatest moment of clarity. That can be hard to hear. Especially when you are in the throes of emotional angst. But emotional clarity only comes when you are at your breaking point. It can be subtle, or it can be dramatic.

The best way to handle this shift in emotional consciousness is to take a breath and identify exactly what you are feeling. Next decide what you need and what you want to do about it. Don’t be afraid to look at what isn’t serving you anymore. It takes courage and determination to change.

Right now, that same shift in emotional consciousness is happening at a global level. We are watching it play out in the media every day. The teenagers that survived the shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida looked right into the camera and told the nation that we are the adults and it is time we started acting like it. That was a call to action if I ever heard one.

We are all connected. What is happening on the international stage is, in my mind, a very large representation of what is happening to each of us on a smaller scale. We are being called to action – to honour what we need, decide what right, what is compassionate, honest and truthful. We are being reminded to have a heart.

That journey up the mountain can be tough, but you are not alone. We all doing it. We are all connected. Globally and individually we are all reaching a breaking point. Now we have to decide what to do about it. Individually and together.

jzwpd8inebdigjcwcgdxdni4qmvguc3v.jpgWelcome to 2018! A year of new beginnings and possibilities. I have to say I am finding the astrological and numerical predictions for this year to be intriguing. A colleague of mine forwarded an article written by Simone Matthews1. It was my first introduction to her work and I found her post to be very encouraging. In terms of numerology 2018 is a Universal year 11, a master number which means that it is a year of potential. It signifies that there is an increased energy vibration happening in 2018 that affects all of us. It is a year of increased potential for growth, learning, manifesting and transforming your life. Now more than ever we are being called to be aware of the power of our thoughts and beliefs. The potential is tremendous.

The Buddhists say that every day is a new day. With that in mind I encourage you to embrace each day as a new one, filled with potential, possibilities and choice. Each morning when you wake up why not give yourself permission to thank the universe for this day and all its possibilities. Remember that spiritual law stipulates that the universe’s purpose is to support and manifest whatever you choose to believe. In a master year such as this there is great power in learning how to consciously choose a new way of being every single day.

I am often asked how to handle the negative thoughts that filter into one’s mind despite all best intentions. What I have learned to do is to acknowledge the negative thought, breathe and then consciously shift my mind into a positive thought. In doing this I am giving myself a break and instructing my ego to choose a different reaction. It doesn’t stop the negative thoughts, but it does put me in a more positive mental position of being in control of how I manage myself energetically and emotionally. Don’t kid yourself. The negative thoughts will always be there. It is how you choose to handle them that is the secret. So, learn to be kind to yourself and breathe. This is a year of possibility and miracles can happen in the simplest of ways. You are divinely loved, and the universe wants to help you embrace that.

This is a year of choice.

Namaste,
Atherton

Fear is a funny thing

A very wise man once said, “When you push through the fear, you find out what you are made of.”

Fear is a funny thing. We are afraid of fear. We will do almost anything to avoid fear, but we never really take note of how much we live in fear on a day to day basis. Odd, isn’t it?

Fear can be an enigma. Most of us don’t really think about it but we can be afraid of a lot of things all the time. Because of that, we don’t realize how much stress and anxiety it creates in our life either.

For example, how often do you feel anxious? How often to you find yourself worrying? These are varying shades of fear. Fear can be classified into two major categories. One is legitimate fear and the other is manufactured fear.

Going for a walk in the woods and being charged by a bear, is legitimate fear. Being afraid of being attacked by a bear when there is no bear present, is manufactured fear. How you handle each situation is different, though. If you see a bear, run. If you are constantly worried about running into a bear when you are out for a walk, all that does is ruin the experience of being out for a lovely walk.

It takes courage to overcome manufactured fear. That courage comes when you start to listen to your own manufactured fear and start to push back. Challenge it. Ask “why?” Manufactured fear creates a lot of shadow demons in our lives that only keep us small. They dance in the background recesses of our mind with threatening statements that create the “what if” scenario’s that never really manifest. All they do, at the end of the day, is keep us in a mind state of feeling unhappy, miserable, small and afraid to embrace life the way we want to enjoy it. It erodes our self-esteem and makes us feel incapable of ever accomplishing anything.

It takes more courage to stand up to your own inner fears that is manufactured by the ego. Why? Because it is an ongoing battle that no one ever sees. No one can help you here, except you. There are no white knights to save you. Clients are always surprised to learn that fear will always be there. It never goes away. Even the most confident of people still deal with fear, every single day. The difference for confident people is that they know where the battle line is, and they step up to it every day, secure in the knowledge that today they can overcome this manufactured fear once again.

Are we being of service to teenagers when we try to medicate them with antidepressants?

Here is a story of one young woman who overcame panic attacks that immobilized her to the point where she stopped attending school.

In the spring of 2003 Charlene began to suffer panic attacks. She began to notice increased periods of anxiousness and shortly thereafter began to suffer periods of unconsciousness and fainting. The fainting spells could occur at any time, under any circumstances but they were primarily occurring while she was in school. Over time the fainting began to occur in social situations and eventually resulted in her fainting at home when she was resting or walking around the house. Charlene’s mother said that her overall wellness seemed to be a factor as they noticed she would faint more when she had a cold or the flu.

Charlene was examined by her doctor and numerous blood tests were done. All results were normal. Her doctor, being very through also ordered an ECG, EKG, heart monitoring, CAT scan and a MRI. Again all tests gave normal results. Charlene was beginning to have increased periods of fatigue and feelings of listlessness at this point. She was already under the care of a chiropractor and he had not found anything out of the ordinary that would explain her periods of anxiety or fainting spells.

Charlene was referred to a Child Therapist  and by the time that I met her, she had been in talk therapy for over a year. There was no noticeable improvement, her feelings of anxiety were becoming more pronounced and it was decided by her heath care team that a period of rest from school for a semester would be in order.

Charlene came to the Paradigm Centre in the winter of 2006. She was 17 years old and had been off school since June 2006. She presented as a quiet, well-behaved young lady. She was well groomed but walked with her head down and her voice low and soft. She was anxious and wouldn’t make eye contact. She said that she had been referred by her therapist and her physician. She told me that they were thinking of putting her on anti-depressants and recommended she be admitted to a mental health treatment centre.  She said she was afraid, didn’t want to go to a treatment centre and didn’t want to take drugs. She wanted to know if I could help her. I said we would see. I couldn’t make her any promises because energy work depended on her and where she was willing to go. I also explained to her that with energy work I could only walk beside her on her path. Energy work doesn’t do anything the mind can’t handle or the body will not accept. I explained to her that it would take some time, but how much time would depend on her, where she was willing to go, how she handled the work and how often she did the sessions.

In the initial appointment, we reviewed her current family history. Charlene explained to me that she began to have panic attacks when she was 15. She found Grade 9 to be a difficult transition and only had one best friend in high school at the time. She had loved elementary school and felt that the first six years of school were some of the best years of her life. When she moved to junior high school she found it hard because the teachers “treated us (students) all very poorly”, she said.

Charlene said her childhood was normal and she was very happy. She was really close to her mom, brother and her dad. She said that she loved camping and playing cards with her dad, her brother could be a pest sometimes but they got along well most of the time and that her mom was her best friend. When she was little she had lots of imaginary friends, was good at keeping herself occupied, played well with others and had lots of friends at school.

When I examined Charlene’s aura I could immediately tell she was an Indigo[1]. Indigo children are highly intuitive, sensitive, extremely creative and can be very independent. Indigo children have a tendency to view the world with a different pair of eyes. They see the world in all its many forms. They need to experience the world in a creative, tactile way, which means that they learn by experience, touch and sound. They can read people very quickly but are easily confused when they begin to understand that the world does not treat them with the same respect and understanding. This often leads them into thinking that there is “something wrong with me”, “I am weird”, “nobody understands me”. As a result they often suffer from anxiety, panic attacks and will withdraw into the safety of their home life, or friends or unfortunately if the first two options are not available to them, develop addictions to self medicate or tune out.

I asked Charlene if she knew what an “Indigo” was. She told me she had heard of them and always wondered if she were one of them. When I explained to her how they see and experience the world, she got tears in her eyes and said, “Yes, that is what I feel.” At this point Charlene took a deep breath and began to relax physically. Her energy field opened up and I was more easily able to “see” what we were dealing with in her situation.

After Charlene lay down on the table we began energy work. First I ran my hands over her energy field to feel the flow. We gently worked with the body’s innate wisdom to uncover and remove these blockages to her emotional and physical fields primarily in the chakra of self-esteem or third chakra.[2]

When we were finished I explained to Charlene that she may feel really tired or really jazzed. If she was tired she needed to rest. She was not to kid herself about the level of fatigue and she may feel like she had been hit by a bus. She may be weepy or sad. She was just to rest, let herself cry, or if she felt moody to write or draw out her feelings. She needed to drink a lot of water and be careful driving, as she may feel lightheaded for a day or two. I told her that the clearing would subside within 24 – 48 hours. I also explained this to her mother so that she would receive additional support if this did happen. 

Two weeks later Charlene reported that she felt really good for a week but then the past week had been all downhill.  She said her anxiety had increased and she felt depressed. 

I told her that this type of reaction was quite normal and was an indication that the body was accepting the changes and beginning to heal and release. She said she “knew that” and was quite comfortable with the process. In this session the body identified blockages in her hormones and reproductive organs.

At her third session, one week later, Charlene reported that she “felt really good”.  I noted that when she arrived for this session her head was up, her eyes were brighter, and she was making eye contact with me when she spoke. With the body’s wisdom and permission we worked on feelings related to “always feels like a 5th wheel” and fears of “never fitting in”. Her body was dehydrated so we worked with balancing out body hydration and we discussed the importance of drinking lots of pure water. 

I did not see Charlene again for five weeks due to holidays. When she arrived for her session she said that she had returned to school. She told me that she “was apprehensive” but was “doing ok”. In this session we continued to work on emotional blockages related to her intuitive feelings around  “don’t want to offend my parents”, “fear of expression”, “who am I”, “don’t know who I am”, “confused about life” “something wrong with me”, “I am different”. We spent a lot of time talking about free will and the free will of others. We talked about different coping strategies on how to deal with her intuitive feelings and how it applied to her everyday life. We also discussed what to do with those feelings. 

Children who are highly intuitive are naturally energetically empathic so it is very easy for them to pick up on other people’s feelings and fears. If they don’t understand how to distinguish between what they are feeling and what the other person is feeling, they begin to think it all belongs to them. They start to have what they commonly refer to as “crazy thoughts” and “can’t understand where these thoughts come from”. They interpret this as “their problem” and “there is something wrong with me” and “no one will understand and think I am crazy”. But once you teach an Indigo or intuitive child how to separate their feelings from other people’s feelings, they calm down dramatically and begin to understand what to do about it. They learn how to be conscious of their own feelings and recognize that they have choices on how they respond to the world around them. 

At the eighth week of sessions Charlene said things were going well. She certainly gave every appearance of looking like it was. When she arrived she looked like a different person. I almost didn’t recognize her. She walked in confident, head up, sharply dressed, her hair was nicely done, her voice clear and articulate with direct eye contact. She looked quite stunning. We worked at clearing emotions from her mother’s past. These were subconscious emotional layers that Charlene carried in support of her mother and was totally unaware of their existence. This again often happens with Indigo/intuitive children. If they feel another person’s pain, they will often pick it up and carry it in their own field out of love and devotion for another. This weighs them down because they don’t know what to do with it and leads to confusion because they can’t understand why the other person doesn’t suddenly get better. As a result of this energetic exchange they begin to feel “useless” or ask, “Who am I?” or say, “I don’t know who I am”. This begins another cycle of anxiety, depression or panic because they don’t know what to do next. 

We discussed the importance of loving another enough to let them learn how to “walk” with their own emotions. I explained to her that her mother trusted her enough to learn how to walk when she was born, so she should learn to “trust” her mother enough to figure out how to handle her own emotional issues. This means energetically, allowing her mother to feel her own issues and if Charlene was concerned for her, then to practice the art of “sending love”. We also discussed some energetic emotional guidelines that I had developed over the years as a result of working with highly intuitive people. They are: 1. Just because you know, doesn’t mean you do. 2. Wait to be asked. 3. Do only what is asked. 4. If you are not asked and you are concerned just love them with your heart. 5. If you feel another person’s emotions enter into your field, you have the right to choose to let that emotion go, so do so. 

At Charlene’s ninth session she reported that things were going well at school. She said she was still having problems with fainting spells so we asked for and received permission to work with the physical body. We worked with balancing out the body’s ability to deal with sugar. I asked her to follow a sugar free (and no artificial sweeteners) guideline for two weeks. I have also found over the course of working with intuitive children or Indigos that they are very sensitive to sugars, artificial sweeteners, wheat, and additives. If they can be encouraged to follow a natural, wheat free diet and drink water and natural fruit juices it is much easier for them to cope physically and emotionally. 

As we balanced out the physical body we talked about coping mechanisms for Indigos. Indigos easily connect to fear, especially when projected by others. As a result of their ability to connect energetically to other people’s emotions they begin to fear that they created the fear in the first place or are at least responsible for fear. This will again cause them to withdraw and become overwhelmed with emotional responsibility. Parents unfortunately magnify these feelings when, in their efforts to protect their children, they tell them all the things they can’t do, or shouldn’t do but fail to explain what they can do or how to handle a situation if it should arise. 

We talked about understanding how the world does not need to be a scary place and how to use your intuitive abilities as a coping mechanism. We worked through some practical applications of different social scenarios and I showed her different ways to use her intuitive abilities as well as the “energetic emotional guidelines” to think her way through a problem. 

When you show Indigos how to use their intuition instead of being afraid of it they quickly see that they have options and choices and they begin to naturally choose very practical solutions and then don’t find the outside world so overwhelming. They learn that what they are feeling is valid. What they are feeling is true for them. They learn how to separate their feelings from another person’s feelings and yet still retain their enormous capacity for love and empathy for themselves and others without being overwhelmed and fearful. 

It is important to remember that Indigos experience the world around them in a tactile way. Once they are taught how to use their intuitive gifts in relation to how they feel, they very quickly learn how to “feel” their way through any type of problem. They learn how to think on their feet. When this happens they relax and demonstrate how highly motivated, intelligent, loving, and empathic they truly are. 

Charlene knew that she didn’t need to take drugs to solve her panic attacks and anxiety. Thankfully, her parents, doctor and therapist supported an alternative management method, namely energy work. In this case, therapy included: clearing chakra energy blockages, helping the client understand her won thoughts and feelings, and clarifying her emotional responsibilities, as well as enhancing her diet. 

Charlene returned to school after being off school for 6 months. At the time of publication Charlene had finished high school and was preparing for University. She demonstrated a sense of confidence, power and joy as she prepared to tackle her future.
