I shared what I was seeing and feeling with Pat, my acupuncturist. She quietly smiled as if she had invited his presence here.
I closed my eyes and Pat placed the final needle in me and immediately I felt myself lift out of my physical body and was overcome with a sense of joy that brought a tingling sensation throughout my entire body. It was if I had become instantly electrified and charged.
While I felt I was being “out of my body,” I felt the old Chinese Master take care of manipulating different energies and places within my body. I could see different colors, beginning with yellow, then red, greens, white, and blues. I could feel heat in different sections of my body, particularly my throat, my chest, and solar plexus. I could feel the energy actually move and circulate.
I had the impression that something was being removed that had been missed and the image from the Matrix movie came to my mind when Neo, the main protagonist, was in a car and had a metal bug extrapolated from his abdomen. Neo had not known it was even present but when it was removed, he could see he had been infected. I, too, had the impression something foreign was being removed from me as well during this acupuncture treatment.
After the acupuncture concluded, I was overwhelmed with a feeling of oneness, peace, and joy. I did not want to leave because the feeling of being whole was so powerful and so complete. I sat in the room for a long time and continued to feel that connection.
Since this first introduction with this old Chinese Master, I went on to learn some of the arts of Chinese Medicine, such as Qigong. Even now, in some of my treatment sessions, I can sense this same Old Chinese Master’s presence in the room. Some times he is there for support and occasionally he steps in to assist with a treatment. It is now as if we have become good friends with respect for each others gifts. We both enjoy the art of healing.
