It was a monumental weekend in so many ways, with all of us working through events from the past that have been impacting on our lives in the present.
One of my experiences was of an earthquake that swallowed my entire family and the whole village where we lived, the emotions of sadness and despair as I tried to dig them out with my bare hands was overwhelming and the subsequent healing most welcomed.
I had felt incredible guilt because I had not been there with them; I had left shortly before it happened because I could sense that something was not right and had gone to higher ground to investigate.
Eventually I died, alone, cold hungry and no longer wanting to live without them all. At the point of my death I was so relieved to be reunited with them and received an amazing understanding of the whole event.
Namely that everyone that was there at the time had volunteered for the experience and that it had all unfolded exactly as it was supposed to.
I was not to feel guilty for leaving them and was absolved of all guilt and all of the fear that I had experienced.
One of my questions before the session began was "Why do I sometimes feel as though I am living on quicksand, with a feeling that everything may just collapse under my feet at any minute?"
I believe that I got my answer and I know that I can finally let the feeling go now and get on with my life with confidence and a greater sense of security.
Life provides us with so many lessons, and if we look for the answers we will always find them, right there in the back of our minds.
