I am seeing this today and feel like I have been out to lunch. Are the deadlines posted? I feel grateful I actually thought about this.

Thank you Lorie. I laughed out loud because it’s clear you ‘get me’ I appreciate your thoughtfulness.

I am glad you wrote this. It felt heavy yesterday for me and even last night I kept dreaming the word gui, like trying to process it or shake it off. I am sitting with well I didn’t know what I didn’t know yesterday and today I have this information, and I can see similarities to other ideologies and ways of thinking of each distortion when not healthy and sitting with getting to the place of benevolence. I also have been thinking of them as possibly guideposts for healthy boundaries.
Just being able to write here has already helped me.

Thank you Ben. I appreciate your response. I think this ties to my prima materia of having confidence and courage to trust myself and willingness to go through the discomfort rather than avoid it. But also having boundaries…. Lots to reflect on

Today something incredible happened. The second and third cases had appointments today.
I was feeling at unease seeing the second case because I knew of her hesitation of using needles and I thought about Lorie’s boundary course, if I am feeling anxious about a patient there maybe some trigger or boundary issue. I emailed the patient and I followed up with a phone call this morning before she was scheduled to come in.
Since last week she thinks she has discovered a salivary stone and may have some swelling in throat. We spoke and I recommended she check in with a doctor what was going on for sure and once we knew we could discuss further treatment and to take her time about if she is actually even getting acupuncture. Even though she wanted me to knock out the stone I said let’s figure out what’s happening medically and then create a plan. It felt good to have boundaries and create the map work of our communication of her health.
Because we postponed her treatment today I had time after my client (the third case). We discussed her desire for a child and I felt her pulse and asked if she wanted to try to have a child and she said yes. She said it felt good to speak her truth and say yes I want a child.
After treatment somehow we started chatting and unbeknownst to me, she told me she had a Golden Path Reading from Lillian (my face reading mentor) a little over a year or two ago. She told me in her reading Lillian talked about her challenge with partnership and suggestions for finding the match for her. It was incredible because in her intake she discussed how she had not had a child yet because of the partners she had been with not for physical reasons.
She shared more of what Lillian said and it became clear to me that Lillian was helping me with this patient. I was getting the help I needed from my mentor who had passed away, not knowing she had spoken to this person sitting in my clinic years ago about this issue. My advice to her today was not to worry about the partner and clear her body, prepare it so if she decides to get pregnant she is ready and surrender to what the universe brings. She will know the right partner when she is ready, and trust in divine timing.
She is sleeping better and her SAD felt better, she said she feels more in tune with the season and not so heavy.
I feel like because I drew my boundaries with the one case and its ok to go slow, it created a space for the other patient .
Having the conversation with her about her reading and actually hearing what my mentor had told her helped me gain clarity about her case. I felt like Lillian was in the room.
Thank you Lorie for encouraging us to keep containers, inner sensing and Benjamin for your response to me. By the way I got two new bookings today and it covers the one I cancelled. I too am learning to trust and that the Dao has my back. It is also my practice.

Reading this it’s so simple to visualize why gold covered by mud happens, and because we know in this story it’s covered all I could think was will it be uncovered??? How??? It’s so interesting it was the monks that chipped it away. Also that it took a long time for it to be uncovered. I think of how much mud covers the gold of all of us and the possibilities of removing given the right time and circumstances. Thank you for sharing the story.

Much gratitude to this community. I finished my test readings, did my first face reading at the clinic last week and have another booked Friday. I put it on my website and I feel honoured to share Lillian’s teachings. I have had self doubt (prima materia) , fear of unknown and whether it’s ok to say what I see…. And I still started. The face readings so far have been really wonderful for the person being read and me. My motto is let your Shen shine! Thank you Lorie and Ben for encouragement and I know there is still so much more to be!

Thank you for this post. I just read it. The world and its suffering on a global level of this political climate is palpable. I feel grateful for peace in my country yet at the same time feelings of sorrow and anger of people fleeing and being traumatized by the events in their country. This crossroads and alchemy to me means healing the parts of our selves that are pained and reaching our ancestry to move forward with universal and individual heart connections in our present time instead of just more of the same over and over. I am questioning if what am I doing even makes a difference?
The empathy I have is that those fleeing their homes for safety is my late father’s experience. I just discovered his full story before his birthday February 24, talk about timing. Leaving his home as a 9 year old boy which was divided from his mother country to walk to the new border of his home country for a chance at life and peace happened just one generation ago in my family. My desire to learn about his story came from here, the alchemy of healing talks. (Thank you to Ben for encouraging me to share my fathers story) What happened to to my father( fleeing to find peace) is happening to so many now and ancestors in the past.
It is clear to me our human experience is more universal than different and in my heart I want to believe the greater human consciousness will prevail or in simple terms the collective good in all of us. I honestly have no idea where this year will lead but I can say personally I am asking myself big questions and asking how do I hurt? How do I connect with others? How can I grow? …and do better?
