My soul's purpose is to hold space for people to release their emotions.
I know this because I feel it in every experience I've had.
Through healing my physical body from disease, I discovered a piece that was deeper. That emotions are in our tissues. And how easy it is to just move from one thing to the next, never acknowledging the triggers each day can bring.
Our bodies remember pain and sadness and anger. And our bodies also can go into defense mode to protect ourselves. But really what this does is shuts ourselves off from feeling anything at all. And I know because I've been there. And sometimes I still fall back to that.
Reflexology and Reiki are two of the ways I love to hold space for people. To bring our bodies out of fight or flight mode and back to peace and balance.
I am extremely grateful for every client who has ever trusted me to hold space for them. While their stories spill out of them in my chair as I work their feet. And they release these beautiful tears as they lay on my Reiki table.
I hold space to say It's okay that you are in pain. It's okay that this happened to you. It is okay that you still feel sad about something from so long ago.
