13 Dec Energy Healing with Melissa from Soul Nourish
I’ll let you in on a wee secret; although it may seem like I have my shit together, there have been many times throughout my life where I’ve struggled with anxiety, overwhelm and even comparatinitis.
Running a business, rebranding, organising my first pop up shop, redesigning our website, putting our home on the market for sale, raising a toddler, and dealing with my Dad’s health scare means these past six months have been FULL ON.
And it doesn’t help that I am extremely hard on myself. Up until about a week ago, I was working most nights until 10pm… trying to cram as much work in as possible.
As a new business owner business never stops, it is a labour of love and I am truly grateful to have the opportunity to do what I love but it doesn’t mean it’s always easy being your own boss – sometimes it’s bloody HARD.
My body was trying to tell me to slow down. I was getting sick every two weeks, from the flu, to a common cold, vomiting bugs to acute sinusitis, I was depleted.
I was irritable, tired, and angry at my body for constantly letting me down. I felt guilty all the time – guilty for so many reasons. I tried working with a coach and their approach didn’t work with me; if I felt like they were coming down with me I just retreated because I was already hard enough on myself.
I needed someone to help me lighten the load, I just didn’t know how.
That’s when I connected with Melissa from Soul Nourish. She reached out and offered her services which in the simplest form are to do with energy healing. I was intrigued, I’ve worked with energy healers before (if you’ve been following me for a while you’ll know that I was seeing a Kinesiologist earlier this year).
I didn’t know what to expect. I knew I was excited, but when it comes to energy healing I never truly understand it.
Melissa organised a zoom call and everything was done via the internet. Energy is all around us so I knew I didn’t have to see Melissa face to face, but I was skeptical as to whether the results would be the same as an in-person session.
We started the Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET) which helps to remove limiting beliefs and negativeenergy, and to restore mind-body balance. She also uses Reiki, Homeopathy, and Soul Essences as tools (depending on each clients individual needs).
Talking to Melissa is like talking to a friend who has your best interests at heart, someone who can identify what’s causing you pain without judgment. Melissa identified the root cause of why my body was struggling so much of late.
To start the session off, I started telling Melissa what was going wrong, how sick I’ve been, and I lay it all out on the table. I felt incredibly comfortable and to be honest I knew that the more I gave, the more I would benefit from Melissa’s services.
Tears flowed as I revealed when I discussed some deeply personal issues, and talking to Melissa was like talking to a close friend who has your best interests at heart. Someone who can identify what’s causing you pain without passing judgment.
By using a mix of psychology, kinesiology and spirituality, Melissa’s techniques felt more tangible and relatable to energy healers I had worked with in the past. It may seem cliche but she ‘got me’.
During the session we meditated together, used EFT tapping, and discussed a number of techniques I could put in place to help me deal with the large amount of pressure I was putting on myself. I needed to start being kind to myself, to connect with my higher self on a daily basis so that I could change the energy when I felt overwhelmed, and to use the techniques each and every day.
Melissa also sent me two beautiful flower essences and a homeopath treatment.
The big question is did my session with Melissa from help? Undoubtedly yes. Immediately during our session, I felt lighter, and after our session it was though a weight had lifted. I felt calmer, relaxed, and most of all, happy.
One and a half weeks on and I still feel great. I’m most certainly calmer than I was prior to our session. I’m not as irritable as I was, nor am I as frustrated or overwhelmed.
I know things aren’t going to always be perfect and I’m excited for my check-in call with Melissa, but I feel more at ease with myself and equipped to deal with my emotions when they arise.
To Melissa – thank you for helping me remember that I am doing a great job and that I deserve kindness – most importantly from myself.
