I eventually gave up trying to force the process and just accepted this abundance of energy flowing up through the earth and into me. I then started giving the Qigong medical treatment.
My client was laying on her back on the massage table with her eyes closed and I started to ground her and connect her with the earth. I could feel this big wave of energy going from me and now through her. I looked to see if she was uncomfortable or grimacing from all this energy pouring into her, but she was relaxed and smiling, so I continued. I then heard the words, "this energy is for your patient," so I relaxed and allowed the energy to be transferred.
I began giving the the Qigong medical treatment I had planned, but once again heard the words, "No, she needs something different. We will guide you." I then moved to the end of the massage table and placed each pinky finger on the balls of her feet and could still feel that earth grounding energy POUR into her.
I stood there for a long time, feeling that energy just pour into her from the base of her feet. I then moved my hands to the tops of her big toes and again felt the energy change, almost as if it was now a new frequency, and it poured into her.
I then moved my hands to the pointer finger on top of her feet and my thumb on the bottom of her feet and could feel the energy frequency change again, but still pouring into her.
I then changed hand positions and held the heels of her feet and pulled her legs toward me, and then pushed them away, almost as if it were a wave of motion. My thought was, "this is representative of water, and the others were of air, water, and the earth."
As I stood and did some kind of wave motion, I had the impression this woman had the gift of astral travel and I could see this grounding energy would allow her the grounding component she needed with this gift.
At the end of the treatment, I informed my patient we were done and she opened her eyes. She reported this was the most incredible experience she had ever had and she could feel energy pouring into her. She also felt "changed" as if she had become different during the treatment.
I had started the Qigong treatment with one treatment plan in mind, but the purpose and outcome clearly changed based on what was happening in the treatment. Being able to step aside and allow input and direction from outside forces will help give the patient what they NEED rather than what you want (or expect) them to get. A Qigong Health Practitioner not only needs to know how to direct and use energy, they need to know how to interpret the subtle messages being shared during the treatment.
