Josef: Who wants to start to share their experiences?
M: Quick question. Where’s D?
Josef: He dropped off. [Laughs.] He fell asleep, and when he woke up someone was knocking on his door. We’ll complete his session later.
Josef: But yeah, how was the experience?
M: I’ll share first. The first few minutes, even before you mentioned about the temperature, I already felt cold. Even before you mentioned the light, I already saw the light.
M: But when you said it was a ball of light, I thought OK, is it a ball of light that I’m seeing? It was more like flashing lights.
Josef: That’s OK. That’s fine.
M: I stayed with them. Then, I didn’t know. I could still hear your voice, and yet like you said I would wander and whatnot. It was a very different feeling after that. I can’t explain it. I was thinking what if I fell asleep?
Josef: That’s OK. Actually if you fell asleep, like D [chuckles], it just means that that’s the healing that you need. But the fact that you saw the lights, it means that it really was your Higher Self trying to communicate to you and trying to make a connection.
M: Oh wow!
Josef: Do you remember any images, or do you remember anything from the part where we were either going to a past life or doing the body scan? Do you remember anything from those parts? It’s OK if you don’t.
M: Me, I was just at the beach.
Josef: Ah, you were at the beach.
M: Yeah, probably because that’s where I wanted to go. The beach for me is serenity. It was as simple as that. All the time that I was there, I went into like a forest or whatnot. It was just like that. I don’t remember much after that, though I could hear your voice from time to time. I could hear your singing bowl, and that was that until you brought us back to being awake.
M: All the time, I was like wow! Amazing.
Josef: How do you feel now? What’s your overall sense?
M: I feel light. It’s a very light feeling.
Josef: Good, good! And you, “V”. How was your experience?
V: Let’s start with the temperature. With “M”, because you said it was cold, right?
V: For me, I knew the air conditioner was on, but the nape of my neck was hot. It was really hot. Really hot. It was the kind of hot that wasn’t feverish though. Then when you talked about the ball of light, unlike “M” where the light would flash, mine was going around me.
Josef: Ah, nice!
V: It was restless. It was like I was chasing after it in order to see it better. It was really small at first like a golf ball, then it became bigger. It was pulsating like a heartbeat. Then when you talked about the pyramid that would travel, it was weird because I never left home.
Josef: That’s OK.
V: I didn’t leave home but it was like time travel.
Josef: That’s exactly what it was.
V: When I was there in the pyramid, instead of being triangular with me sitting inside, it was upside down and I was sitting on top of it, on top of the flat part.
Josef: Nice! You know what that means? If the pyramid is inverted, normally it means you’re releasing negative energy.
M: Oh wow.
Josef: That’s what you needed, right?
V: When you said that we are stopping, I saw my Mother’s casket leaving our home. [Slight pause for tears.] It was leaving, and when I went inside our home… When I woke up I was really wet from tears. When I went inside our home, I saw like excerpts from a movie. The first thing I saw was me and my sister and my Dad, and my Mother’s coffin. That’s when I started crying. It’s like when you’re walking but you can’t feel the ground that you’re walking on. On daily basis when you walk, you can feel what you’re walking on, but this was almost airy. You know you’re not floating, you know you’re walking, but it’s like you feel you’re floating.
Josef: Yes, yes.
V: Then I went into the kitchen and I remember the scene there during our last Christmas together. When I decided to go into the room, the memories of my sister and my brother when my Mom was still alive. I could remember it all. Like I said earlier, I never had a chance to really mourn. Now is when I was able to release it all, because when it was all done… I was expecting that I would, like “M”, be in a garden or something. I was like, why am I not leaving my home? Why am I just here? But the scenes were picked from really special occasions because I could see like when I had chicken pox, and I was 7 years old then, and my Mother gave me noodle soup. After that, when you started talking, I could hear your voice saying we had to return but I really wanted to stay. I wanted to stay there. Now I’m thinking it really is time to let go.
Josef: Yes, yes, because that’s what appeared to you.
V: Yeah, because I already set expectations for myself that I’d see a garden or something. It was so weird that I didn’t leave home. I think it really is time for me to let go. It’s another way of my Mom telling me that it’s already OK. Whatever you’re doing right now is exactly what I just want you to do. I’m so happy, so light that it’s all OK now.
Josef: Good, good! Did you feel anything during the body scan?
V: Here in my heart area.
Josef: Yes, during the energy healing, I could really feel the denseness in your heart area. I was trying to scrape it all off [chuckles].
V: It was so heavy earlier. Really heavy. When we started, it was like there was a weight on top of my chest, but as time went on, it got lighter and less tight. When you said it was time to wake up, I was like OK, and I was full of tears. My daughter said she had been knocking on my door for a long time but I was completely unaware. From the start, I set my mind that I wanted this, I wanted to feel all of this, I wanted to experience this, and aside from that I wanted inner peace because before we started, it was like something was missing for me to say that I’ve totally moved on. I always had difficulty accepting that… I always felt that I could have done better but wasn’t given the chance because my Mother passed away too soon. But my heart area feels so much better now.
Josef: It’s like a heavy weight has been taken off of you.
Josef: Good, good! That’s why I really like these types of sessions because, like I was telling them before you joined, “M”. It’s like you know how Filipinos tend to hide what we feel, especially our negative emotions, rather than confronting them or really addressing them or releasing them. We just try to forget and pretend nothing happened. I’m very happy that in this case, “V”, you were able to feel those emotions and finally release them.
V: Yes! It’s so great, because it was like a Powerpoint presentation. Is it really like that? Like really detailed? Because even the clothes, like the fact I remembered my Mom giving me noodles, even if my memory isn’t really that good, I recalled that yes these things happened.
Josef: It’s like you really were transported back to that exact moment.
V: Yes! It’s like I felt like a ghost. I was there, I was seeing myself, but it was like I was watching a movie of myself. That’s how it felt.
Josef: Good! Good. But yeah, it really varies from person to person. When I do this for group sessions, some really just sleep and they can’t remember anything, but others have experiences that are really very detailed like yours. And then others like “M” just stay in one place and they don’t really move around, or they just stay where they are. But they still feel a sense that something happened or they feel lighter. The thing is that since we all have different experiences, each of us of course has different healing needs. At the same time, your Higher Self communicates to you in a very unique and very individualized way. Whereas for you, “V”, your Higher Self really wanted you to see what happened in the past so you could release them, in the case of “M”, maybe she has already released all of those things so she could just focus on feeling peaceful and if there was anything that needed to be healed further then she could just work on that. Any other thoughts or other things that you wanted to share about your experiences or what you went through?
V: I just have a question. Is it possible that… because in our church, we just base everything on the Bible. We just review the Bible, and we have insights and all. Is it possible for us to not believe that it’s necessary for souls that have passed to have to come back in order to connect to you? Is it possible that in the session we just had that my Mom was there?
Josef: Yes, absolutely! Remember, and not to say anything against any religion, but the thing is that your heart will never lie to you. Whatever you felt now, believe in it. If you really felt the presence of your Mother there, then it just simply means that she was there. Nobody can take that away from you, not even religion, not even whoever. Not even me, not even “M”. You know that that really happened to you because that’s how intense the feeling was. Yeah, it’s true that religion sometimes tells us that we’re disconnected from our Higher Selves, that we can’t do what you did earlier which is to connect to your Higher Self, or in your case “V”, connect to your Higher Self as well as your Mother. But you know that it happened because you just experienced it right now. When you’re in doubt, just always touch your heart, and if you’re not sure if something really happened or if something is true, just touch your heart and ask yourself did it really happen, is this true, is this false. Your heart will never lie to you because it is you. It’s not like I was the one who told you to have those experiences. It was your Higher Self that was giving you those experiences. Don’t feel so conflicted about what other people say, whether it’s religion or some other person or whether it’s even your family members. You know what your Higher Self is trying to tell you, and you have to honor that. Because right, the intention we set at the beginning of the session was that we wanted our Higher Selves to talk with us, and from I’ve heard you both share, your Higher Selves really did talk with you. You have to honor that and respect that. In a way, you have to thank your Higher Self, which in any case really is you, so basically you have to thank yourself that hey, I understood the message that you were telling me. Also, don’t think of this as a one-time thing. Actually, now that you’ve had those experiences, even when you saw the lights at the beginning, you can even do that on your own. You don’t need me actually. You now have a way for you to connect with your Higher Self all the time, right? You can do that anytime. I don’t even need to be there. That’s the whole purpose of this healing session. If you think about it, today was more like a self-healing session. It wasn’t even like me healing you. It was really you healing yourself with the help of your Higher Self. You have to be very proud of yourself that you were able to connect with your Higher Self in that way, and nobody can take that away from you no matter what they say, no matter what I say, no matter what your friends say, no matter what your partners or family members or even what your religion says. You know what the truth is. Never let anyone take that away from you. OK?
Josef: Does that make sense?
V: Yes, yes it does.
