I have always had an interest in healing, growing, and
evolving. I found that I could learn and heal quite a bit
while talking on the telephone. Through my own healing and
learning done on the phone, I decided to explore the reason
it was an effective tool for me.
I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to develop a
relationship without being face-to-face. After trying it,
however, I concluded that forming the kind of trusting relationship
that is needed for healing actually can be accomplished on the phone
when I hold a strong presence for the person I'm talking with.
In fact, in some ways it is easier, since clients don't
seem to be as self-conscious about issues when someone
isn't looking at them. We all fear being judged. Even when
we aren't being judged, when it comes to our
personal issues, we worry that we will be judged
and won't measure up. The process of starting to trust
and beginning to open and share is sometimes easier to
create on the phone.
The next question is whether we are able to work through issues
and heal on the phone. I have found that talking on the
phone uses the mind and the intellect. By adding tools of awareness
and connection with and through the body (including some simple
tapping or touching techniques that allow you to connect your body
to your emotional thought stream), you can produce healing
effects. I've concluded that the mind-body continuum can easily be
addressed, and emotional or physical issues can be healed.
The body and the energy field do not need complex
methods of touch to heal, because no thought or mind is
involved. Simple techniques with encouragement and
direction can produce positive results. The techniques
I teach are gentle, non-invasive, and allow for
healing to unfold in an easy and relaxed manner.
In person, although the visual field can provide cues,
it adds another layer of complexity that can contribute to
misinterpretation. Communication on the phone can actually
provide more clarity through simplification that is essential
for effective relationship. It makes the verbal part of
relating more powerful than it would be in person, which
can help in the healing process.
I will assess each individual situation and make recommendations
based on my experience. On a rare occasion, when symptoms seem to be
so severe and you live outside the San Francisco Bay Area, I will refer
you to someone in your area or, preferably, work in conjunction with
someone who lives close to you.
I do enjoy phone work and would truly like to develop a worldwide
practice, touching people wherever they may live.
