L: I’ll start, because I feel like a bad student. I don’t have many notes.
L: I can’t remember a lot. I know at one point I snored.
A: At one point? You mean all throughout. [Chuckles.]
L: I fell asleep.
A: But you know what, everytime Josef would talk, you would wake up.
L: Yeah, actually. When Josef would talk, it was like ah, he’s still there.
L: I remember scratching a lot. Did you feel it?
A: No. I just heard you snore.
L: I did think of a lot of things, but nothing complete because it was fast. I was moving from one thing to another. Then I remembered what you said that if your ego talks, tell it move to the side. I spent most of my time doing that, so I couldn’t concentrate on what I was seeing.
Josef: That’s OK.
L: I saw this person I don’t know, towards the end. He was a young guy, like your body type, Josef, but it wasn’t you. It was a college student. I saw some pebbles in a basin, and he was doing something related to spiritual practice. It was kind of cloudy. I spent a lot of time asleep.
Josef: Yeah, but that’s fine right, because whatever happened in the session is the healing that you need. Maybe because you’re very tired, then really that’s what you needed at that time. So that’s fine. Plus, it’s not like you completed didn’t have any images or anything that came to you. There were, right. So that’s means your Higher Self really is trying to communicate to you. Even if you don’t remember specific things that happened, even if you don’t remember specific images, still remember what your overall feeling is now. Like, how do you feel energetically, how do you feel emotionally, because that is also another sign about the type of healing you have already received. So how do you feel? Emotionally, how are you? Things like that.
L: Emotionally, I’m OK. Nothing tremendous or dramatic. But I just feel really tired. Even after I woke up, it was like I worked out, even though you were saying that we now felt relaxed. Also, maybe around the middle of the session my hands became heavy, and I put them on my chest. When I woke up, I was pressing into my chest. My reaction was physical.
Josef: Yeah, yeah. So maybe that’s an indication that there’s a lot of energy that you still have locked in those areas of your body that you need to release. You have to focus on letting them go. So aside from shielding, which I shared before, in those parts of your body where you feel the heaviness, just imagine a golden flame, or a white flame even, slowly burning those energies and transmuting them similar to the flame that you were using when you were connecting to the crystals. Maybe there is something negative stored in that area, so just keep burning it, keep burning it with the white flames.
L: Which of the two crystals did you connect to more?
A: I’m not sure, but the black one was stronger for me. That’s where I saw the purple and black energies. The pink crystal was very muted for me.
L: I think earlier I connected more to the rose quartz.
L: Something appeared on my left. When I put my hand over the crystals, something white appeared.
A: I saw the pink, but it was very muted.
Josef: It’s interesting also because maybe that’s why you connected to the crystal differently. “A”, if you connected more to the black tourmaline and you saw the colors then maybe that’s the crystal signifying that it’s the one that needs to work with you more. Maybe there’s a lot of dense and negative energy that you need to transmute and that’s why you connected more to the black crystal, whereas with “L” since you were mentioning earlier that you have anger, one of the opposites of anger is love, right. So perhaps that’s also why you’re connecting more with the rose quartz at the moment. It’s not necessarily always going to be like that, because again our energies change. I just find it interesting that that’s how you both connected to the crystals based on what you described.
A: The black and purple light appeared again for me during the first part of the hypnosis. Even while I was laying down, it kept appearing behind my eyes. I was observing it. When you asked us to imagine a pyramid, I realized I had been there before.
A: I remember reading this book that taught me about a pyramid that contains all the knowledge of the universe, and at some point in the past I was able to get in. So I recognized the pyramid, though the inside was different now. I always imagined that if I went through any hypnosis, I would land in a forest, but I didn’t. It was like a valley that was mostly grassland. I just had the sense that there was a cave behind me that was big and very dark, but not menacing. I didn’t enter it either, but I just had the sense that though I didn’t live there, it would be a good place to stay in should I need shelter at any point for the duration of my time there. I just kept imagining because I wanted to explore. There was some effort before the scenery appeared, but when it did it was like Simba overlooking the valley. It wasn’t that vast, but mainly because the image wasn’t complete in my mind yet. So when you went down from where the cave was, there was grassland and in front of me was like a forest, but not grassy or mossy. It was hard earth. Yeah there were trees around, but only a few. It was more like another cave or tunnel that was very big. I felt that there was something at the end.
A: It took me a while before I could envision what was at the end. There was kind of a bit of resistance, like no there’s nothing anymore, like I wasn’t allowed to see it yet, but I kept coming back to the cave until I could see the end of the cave. It felt like it was open, but when you entered the big tunnel, you would exit into another cave and when you left that, it was another valley that was smaller, like a caldera. You know what I felt and kept thinking of? Where’s the water? I kept looking for the water. That was the feeling. There has to be water, so I kept looking for it. When I exited the mouth of the new cave into the little valley, there was a path upward, and I felt that the water would be there and that it would be a vast sea, or ocean. So yeah, it was grassland, and there were so few trees which kind of disappointed me because I love trees!
L: Yeah, that’s not you.
A: I could see trees but they had only a few branches. When I went up the path, I finally saw the beach, but I didn’t feel like in awe like wow the beach is beautiful. It was very serene and clean and all that, but it wasn’t like brimming with life. It was just clean. Even the skies weren’t like how you’d expect, like massive.
L: Like the beach we went to with Josef, where on the way there was red soil, but when we got there it wasn’t all that?
A: No, this was beautiful. White sand, beautiful, but it wasn’t what I was expecting I would go to. After all, if I was imagining it all, it should be brimming with life. So my predominant feeling was that I had to look for the water and I had to look for where I lived. It wasn’t in the cave, so it felt like I was just visiting. When you asked if I could see my feet, I saw my feet, and I still felt fear. I have recurring eczema in my left foot, and it flares up when I’m stressed. It was there. I looked at my hands, and I had the sense that I was caucasian. My hair was like it is now, still wild, and I was wearing something tattered, almost like different cloths stitched together, but I was fully covered. I was barefoot because I could feel the ground. I went back to the small caldera and I was thinking, what’s here? I looked to my right, and it was rocky, and I sensed that all of a sudden a house appeared and it was built into the rock. I was trying to see what was inside, but everytime I would look at the house it would disappear. I went back to the vantage point where I was looking at the path going upward and where the sea was in front of me, and all of a sudden everything changed. The area had more trees and it now had benches. The path going to the beach viewpoint was lined with benches and there was a small park. The house finally appeared, and I felt like I was wearing… I was European. I was wearing a corset, the works. So I thought I wanted to enter the house. What would it look like? I wanted to visualize the entire thing but I had difficulty. I had to look at the windows, I just knew that there was a balcony and there were people there, ladies there who were dressed just like me. There were just a few of them, but they were there. It kind of felt like a dorm, I guess, or a social hall or something. When I went inside, there were stairs on the right and I was going to go up but then all of a sudden I heard you speak again.
Josef: Nice! So you probably spent multiple lives in the same place, right?
A: I feel that the place evolved.
Josef: Yeah, yeah. Nice! Did you get the chance to think while you were there, why you were brought there? Or why that was shown to you?
A: It’s slowly starting to make sense, and it’s all coming to a head now, that I feel I have to go back. I have to do some research and I have to find that place that used to have a body of water, or that was near a body of water, that evolved into a town and that somehow I have to go back.
A: We both want to live abroad, right. I feel after everything I saw earlier, I really don’t have to live abroad. I just want to go back.
Josef: Yeah, yeah. Nice!
A: I have everything I need here. I don’t have to go abroad. If I’m going to go abroad, it’s just to see where I’ve been, where did I come from, to visit.
Josef: Nice! Good! During the body scan, what were your experiences?
A: In the body scan, I felt a lot of entities, but there was just one that had like a human form. She was on the right near my feet. The parts of my body that really needed healing, like my heart which always feels heavy…
Josef: Yeah, I felt that in the energy work, like there was something in your heart. I was trying to bring it out.
A: Yeah, it’s heavy. It’s like plaque that’s hard to break down. Of course my foot too, because of my recurring eczema, and that’s where my stress manifests. It was like she wanted to say “Everything else, you release it through here.” I felt the need to use my hands. I was feeling the scan, and my Higher Self was saying “Use your hands. In fact, I want you to use it always.”
Josef: Yeah, nice! Nice!
A: After I used my hands, the pain in my heart went away. After laying my hands on other parts of my body, they would come back to my heart. I went back to my heart around 3 times. I had to touch my foot. The body scan… [Brief pause for tears.] During the scan, that’s where they answered all my questions. [Pause.]
Josef: Just let it flow. Let it flow.
A: Like for example. I had my hand on my heart, and my Higher Self was telling me “Just always do this. Always shield your heart.” And you know, it’s so weird, because even my hands hurt, so I had to lay my hands on each other to feel them. The message was “Your hands are so tired from holding your phone, and that’s where all the negativity is coming from.”
Josef: Yes, yes.
A: “To shield your heart you have to step away from your phone more. Spend more time just listening to me and doing as I say.”
A: Then, with my life purpose, because I was asking. I know at my back of my mind, what makes me happy is when I write. When I write stuff that comes to me, I hate writing essays, it’s so painful to write for me, but I get inspiration sometimes when I go about my day, and I like writing those things. For example, when I’m in the grocery, I’ll think what if I compare ingredients, because it might help people? I’ll compare this with that and compare prices. Things like that. I want to know if my passions and my talents, if I can use them to show people and teach people to become better versions of themselves. Specifically in my head, that means plugging, plugging, teaching stuff, writing. During the scan, I was being told “Before you write, you have to live your vision first. You have to live your life vision.” Because “L” and I, we took this course. All of this is spelled out. We have our life book. It has our vision for health, our emotions, career, children and parenting, financial life, and in the end our life mission. Everything was spelled out and our document is so precious to us because we were in the zone and we were envisioning the life that we wanted. In the scan I was told, “These are the things you want to teach people, but before you teach people you have to live your vision first.” So I was questioning, when? Can I just start writing, blogging? I have to live it first. So that’s what they were telling me. And I was thinking about my struggle with teaching because it weighs heavily on me. I’m always irritated, and I’ve been teaching for so long. What I was told was, in conjunction with everything else I do in life, whenever I talk to people about things that are dear to me or things I feel strongly about, when I’m debating with people or arguing with them, my Higher Self said something so specific. She said, “The path to least resistance is the path of Love. You have to be kind, and you have to be nice. Instead of arguing and being antagonistic, you just have to show that above all, you are operating out of Love.”
A: “Let this guide you in everything you do, including in teaching.” I have difficulty preparing for classes because I’ve been teaching for how many years, teaching the same stuff, and it’s always difficult. When I get to topics I’ve taught before, I never know how I should teach them. Why is it that I’ve been doing this so long and yet it’s still hard? But there are flashes of inspiration sometimes, and lessons that are easy. Before I would plan those classes, I would ask myself what is it that I want them to learn? I just want crystallize and to simply. What are one or two things that I want them to learn? What do I want them to do as simply as possible? “Just do that all the time. Just ask them instead of looking at your syllabus and listing off the things you think you need to teach. Just ask yourself what matters and what’s the best way to go about it, what’s the best way for them to have fun and to feel that above all that really you care about them.”
L: Yeah that’s how I do it too, maybe because I haven’t had formal training on how to teach. I just ask what’s important.
A: When you’re in the academe, you have syllabi, you have rubrics, you have lesson plans. There’s pressure in that.
Josef: Yeah, and it’s easy to get lost in what really is important given that’s the system. Nice. So your experience was very detailed! Even in terms of the answers that came out.
A: Yeah. It happened all in the scan. I asked the questions, sometimes I felt them coming to me, but I always felt it was my Higher Self talking, and I felt just an overwhelming sense of gratitude. So much gratitude. In fact, when you said just relax, everything is fine, you’re integrating nicely and all that, and when you finished counting to 1, my hurt again but not inside. It was outside. I was crying because that’s how I am when I’m grateful. I cry.
Josef: Nice! So you really had a profound experience even though it wasn’t an individual hypnosis session.
A: I wasn’t even distracted by “L” snoring.
A: All the while, honey, you were snoring. The entire time. And I know you were still listening, or your soul was, to your Higher Self, because everytime Josef spoke you would stop snoring. I was thinking make him stop, make him stop. But I just though, maybe this is what he needs.
Josef: Yeah, it is what he needs, right? [Chuckles.] So any final thoughts, just to put it together? From either of you?
L: I need another session where I’m not sleep-deprived. I was working earlier, and it was 2 classes.
A: And he was outside in the garage because that’s where the wifi signal is strong. But look, your signal now is great here inside.
L: I know right. It’s irritating.
A: He works in the garage because that’s the only place the signal is strong, and it’s hot outside. But we’re inside now and it’s comfortable and the signal is strong.
Josef: Because this session was meant to be!
A: And there’s another thing. Because in relationships, I wanted to clarity on how I could trust “L” more, how to serve him more. My Higher Self said, “L loves you. Just tell him what you need and he’ll give it to you.”
L: Oh My God! Exactly!
A: Just tell him what you need.
L: That’s what we’d fight over before. I’d always say, “Just tell me.” This semantic BS… When I ask, “Should I cook now?” Just say yes or no and I’ll do it.
A: [Chuckles.] Not just that, but my Higher Self was saying…
L: Your Higher Self is great. I want to meet her.
A: …whatever you’re feeling, instead of being hurt that something is not being done, not being shown, tell him. Because he’s just clueless. [Laughs.]
L: Yeah I like things being said straight. Nice. Serve me now. I’m hungry.
Josef: [Laughs.] Nice, nice. Any other thoughts, or any other closing feelings?
L: I expected that this session who have an effect on “A”. Actually it feels the session was too short.
A: Yeah, heart area still hurts a little.
L: I expected “A” to be affected. I’ve had other people say that “A” would be great life coach. So she definitely would benefit most from what we’re doing. Even in the family, people look towards her for leadership. That’s why I felt it was a shame when “F” was able to join the Basic Pranic Healing course and “A” wasn’t available. I really think you should go through that.
A: Yeah, but our time will come. I’m just very grateful, Dear.
Josef: Yeah, and since you mentioned that during the body scan you were asked to use your hands, for me that’s a really great sign that when you learn Pranic Healing, you’ll be a natural at healing other people because you were directed by your Higher Self to do that already. It’ll be easy for you.
