This is an edited transcript of the first part of a client’s fifth session of their Six Session Series session. The pre-session dialogue below was immediately followed by chakra clearing and chakra cord work. Many thanks to my client (who will remain anonymous) for permission to share this session.
Dean: “I have an approximate skeleton of work that I follow in the Six Session Series. As we go through the sessions we work on the knowledge that the chakra consciousness centers are inter-related, and that by clearing and tweaking each chakra we create a synergistic effect that enhances personal growth and healing.”
Client: “When I worked with another energy healer his work was completely different to you. He wasn’t working with cords; he was just finding out why the chakra was blocked, including emotionally”.
Dean: “Yes, that is the traditional way that other energy healers work. As an analogy, it is as though a healer sees your chakras as radio transmitters, which they then try to repair or energize.
But if we look at how the chakra system is connected internally (as the building blocks of our inner identity) as well as how the chakras are connected up to people on the outer world (through the medium of chakra cords) the type of healing work we can do shifts considerably. So, to extend my analogy, instead of seeing each chakras as a radio transmitter we also take into account the incoming signals, as well as the outgoing signals to those individuals who are significant in your life. That’s Relational Energy Healing, and this is why chakra cord work is important for system change, and also why Astral clearing has to be included during the work … because we are exploring both the transmission and reception of signals by the chakras, rather than only looking at the functioning of the chakra by itself.”
Client: “I am noticing that I am reacting to people slightly differently than is usual for me. Suddenly I’m getting unexpected offers from people, either to help me out or to accompany me on my hospital visits. It’s … amazing, really.
Dean: “Well, here’s the thing – part of what Relational Energy Healing does is that it works towards increasing options, to opening us up to roads that normally we would not travel down. Again, we are dealing with the transmission and reception of human consciousness, through chakra cord connections. And we know from our previous work together that one of the issues you, personally, are breaking open is how historically you have not accepted support from others, or have not felt support extended towards you. What in these previously sessions we have affectionately characterized as your Scottish stubbornness (which also has many positive qualities!) can lead to insulation or isolation from other people. And during this time of healing and potential change in your life you do need access to all and any support available from others. So, when you tell me, as you just did, that suddenly you are getting offers of support from others, and – even more importantly – you are taking them up on it, that’s a significant change for me as your healer because it shows that your consciousness system is now opening to new possibilities and original forms of other people working with you in this place of change.”
Client: “Yes … I am slowly and increasingly becoming aware of this.”
Dean: “The last thing I do want to say about this is (and this does not apply to everyone) is that often when the chakra system begins to open up to other possibilities there is the initial experience that is new, exciting, and wonderful. But it is possible to max out on, let’s say, too much change. There can be a reaction to the changes that could propel you back to your old habit or ways of being with others. Like a turtle pulling their head back into their shell, some people find themselves retreating from contact that is, historically, different behavior. So, please keep an eye out for any “pullback” that may happen.”
Client: “Yes… and if it happens, I should go against that pull?”
Dean: “My suggestion is not to see any pullback as necessarily a bad thing, but simply to bring your awareness to the point where you are going back to your old habit. And, additionally, personal work can be done by you to keep the new connections you have formed still open. The process, even though you are pulling back, is to still keep the door to others open; it’s part of the integration process.”
Client: “Yes … good…. so, today’s session is the throat chakra?”
Dean: “Yes: this is the Fifth Session of your Six Session Series, and so we will illuminate the functioning of your Throat Chakra, and the cords that flow into and out of it.
The Throat Chakra (Vishuddha) functioning consists not only of speaking but of listening…. and allowing ourselves to be changed by what we hear, or affected/influenced by what we hear. Listening deeply also helps me discern if I am being told the truth – or accurate information – by another person. Of course, sometimes the other is not aware that they are imparting wrong information, but the Throat chakra can still discern the difference.”
Client: “Yes, it’s not a judgement on them …”
Dean: “Right! People may tell us things that they truly do believe are the way things are, and in our best interests, but when this impacts your system you will know something is not right about it. And one of the reasons this is of importance to you now, personally, is that as treatment options are offered to you – both allopathic and alternative treatments – you will need to assess what is being offered to you.
So, the idealized goal of these Six Session Series sessions is to work with your auric energy system, to clear and tune it up, so that you can both perceive what are the best options for you (attentive listening) and communicate with others so they can help you (speaking out). I am not a medical professional and I avidly stay away from diagnosis or any recommendation of medical treatment. Instead, my work is to help your own consciousness system to function optimally, in both the listening and the speaking modalities. This is the arena of the Fifth Chakra.
The last thing to know about this session devoted to the Fifth chakra is related to the higher functioning potential of this center of consciousness. Specifically: we have to be able to ask the right questions, and then be willing to hear an uncomfortable – or challenging – answer. So, this applies to your practical situation in regard to your medical treatments; what are the right questions to ask, and can you then take in helpful or vital information in response to your question? The higher function of the fifth chakra is not to abdicate self-responsibility to any outer authority, but to speak up, to be pro-active, to become an active participant in the healing process.
So, what is it that you need to ask your doctor, your surgeon, your alternative healers, and how can you then make sense of all their input? This is the co-creative functioning of the healthy fifth chakra: communication and listening skills that interact successfully with others outside of our experience, so we can make better choices for ourselves, or assist in the exploration of outer (or inner) truth. And while truth may be seen as multiple shades of gray rather than black-and-white, there are some things that are more true than others. The throat chakra, when it is healthy and supported via dialogue and the critical thinking process, leads us through many of life’s challenges. It is not only there to help us speak out; it is also there to help us take in what we need…”
