Recently in a remote Qigong treatment, I had a new and different type of experience with thoughts, however. In this experience I was observing a clients thoughts from "within the body". I had never had this experience before, so let me give you some background.
In this Qigong treatment, my client asked me to help her with forgiveness. She did not specify what exactly she wanted to forgive, but when I began her treatment, I was immediately swept away into a visual that was not part of the normal Qigong treatment. In this visual, it was as if we were outside, it was summer, and it appeared to be a family gathering, and perhaps some type of family celebration. I could see my client with her mother, her 3 daughters, and her granddaughters. It was a gaggle of females.
But then I saw that I was viewing this from the perspective of her husband. He was not part of this group of females - he was under a tree, several yards away from the family action, just watching all those females laughing and having fun. He heard their chatter, but much of it was girl related and almost like it was a family female code. He didn't understand the jokes. I could FEEL what he felt, and he was feeling loneliness. Then I could hear his thoughts "I'm not really part of this family. I am just the breadwinner. I am expected to support all these women and pay for everything. All I am is the provider." The visual then ended, but that lonely and sad feeling lingered.
I then went back to doing the Qigong medical treatment with my client. When the treatment concluded, I was once again transported back to this family celebratory visual, but THIS time, I was seeing the event from my CLIENT's point of view. My client was laughing and smiling and seemed to be having a great time, but then I started to "hear her thoughts" and feel what was going inside her; "I'm so tired. I am exhausted. I don't feel well. I can't do this any more. Why isn't he helping me with this? I need help. I can't be the one who keeps this family together. He is over there just standing around and not even trying to be part of the family."
The visual then ended. I then shared what I saw during her treatment, hoping the two energetic messages with different perspectives may help her desire to achieve "forgiveness".
This experience was a good reminder that subtle energy will send us messages in different ways, hoping we will pick up and interpret the message so it can be acted on. It also was a good reminder that changing one's perspective can help provide some different answers.
