After watching the visual meditation I settled down, but was Initially a bit distracted by something I had been doing on my computer. However, within a couple of minutes I had an inner "knowingness" to just stop and focus, which I did very easily. This was amusing to me later, when I saw an email from Kristi saying that her healing work had started a couple of minutes later than the scheduled time. Kristi had asked me in advance if there were any physical or emotional issues which had led me to "attend" the circle. I expressed a concern with tension in the back of my neck and problems with my sinuses.
Almost immediately I became aware of a glowing, warming energy around my head. I also felt a deep "connectedness to self" which I hadn't experienced for many years. I had been able to attain this consciousness when I was in my twenties and was regularly practicing deep meditation.
I also made a mental connection between this deep connectedness to self and a feeling I remember experiencing as a child when I was recovering from high fevers. I had never connected the two prior to this. I also became aware of a glowing, almost warming feeling of energy around my head. I relaxed into my "focused" state and the healing sensations I was feeling. Then I felt it in my nose, slowly as if I were sucking on a eucalyptus cough drop. It got stronger and almost like that burning/cleansing sensation that would case.
Since the Healing Circle the tension in my neck has been better, but I have to carry a machine on my shoulders for work, so relaxing this area takes more of an ongoing personal focus. My sinuses in the week since the circle have been draining extremely well, especially for the first few days after that. Whatever the sinus issue is, it hasn't felt this clear in well over a year.
Thank you so much Kristi!
