Summertime, summertime! The fun season of sodas and pretzels and beer. Also Soul Energy Awakening Hypnosis®.
For some of my clients, anyway, summer vacation is when they make an unusual kind of pilgrimage to Sterling, Virginia. Where my sessions of past-life regression, unlike all other types of session I offer, must be done in person. Gladys is visiting now, back for her third series of regressions.
This brave explorer is a long-term client who lives quite a distance away. Over the years, Gladys has done many phone sessions of RES Energy HEALING. For certain kinds of depth healing, however, Gladys appreciates this other facet of STUFF removal. At least she hasn’t had to fly across an ocean to get here!
For certain kinds of STUFF, like deposits from smoking marijuana or deep patterns of fear, it’s really useful to remove frozen blocks of energy from past traumas. One session out of this latest bunch contained a memory set that was so surprising, so poignant, I asked her permission to share the highlights with you. Skip ahead to the next heading of this article, unless you want to read a little background first.
Typically, for this type of session, many frozen blocks of energy are released from experiences in a client’s present life. But sometimes the subconscious mind and Higher Self wake up a different kind of experience, supporting the client’s intention for a healing around a particular theme. What name shall I give this former incarnation of Gladys? Let’s go for a big, interesting name — Veronica.
Read Veronica’s story, if you dare. Because maybe, just maybe, some of you Blog-Buddies know a person who has worried about being fat.
Background on Soul Energy Awakening Hypnosis® is available at my website, of course. The link just supplied here can get you started about this important and little-known variation on hypnosis and past-life regression. Although I worked in this field for many years doing crystal regressions, my work took a quantum leap forward after I discovered the most important pioneer in this field of regression therapy, Dr. Coletta Long. I am so grateful to her.
For professional hypnotists (and one must be gather this credential before receiving the specialized training for past-life regression), the outstanding figure is Dr. Milton Erickson. I do hope that some day Dr. Long is similarly acknowledged, because she hasn’t just done more regressions than anyone else alive. Her innovations and theory base are major discoveries. Dr. Long still trains practitioners, incidentally. So if you ever have the desire to do a session with her, or study with her, catch Coletta while you can though this link. (Her email is in the top right corner.)
It is a privilege to do this type of healing work. I consider Soul Energy Awakening Hypnosis® to be a form of Energy Psychology. It accesses the mind-body-spirit system through the emotions, permanently moving away energetic blockages, a.k.a. “STUFF.”
Brace yourself. This is a tale about being really, really fat.
“Veronica” was bracing herself. Lying on a table in a hospital, she had to take care not to fall off.
This wasn’t body surfing on the perfect wave but lying on a table designed for someone who didn’t weigh 450 pounds.
Name any part of this woman’s body and, probably, it was bloated beyond normal, way beyond “pretty darned fat.” Sure there were a few exceptions: Veronica’s knees and elbows were slim, and some of her head was too. Otherwise, Veronica’s body was an extreme case study in fat.
Hard fat, in front of her stomach, like a man’s beer belly. Floppy, soft fat making her arms like puddles of flesh, only solid. Piles of loose skin above and below various cascading bulges of fat.
What was Veronica wearing? A kind of medical underwear, a female loincloth.
Uncovered but warm, basting in her own corpulence, Veronica lay. She was bracing herself to keep from falling off the way-too-small table. Several nurses were around; so was and “Dr. Joe,” a physician in training.
Poking and prodding her, sure? Ignoring her most of the time? Nothing new for Veronica, that one.
Even when touching her directly, the highly trained medical personnel made no pretense of relating to a human being.
Veronica was used to being treated like an object. In a detached kind of way, she observed how this latest group of people would treat her.
Dr. Joe came over. He was interested in looking under her breasts. First he would have to lift one of them up. of course. Tentatively his hand moved over to find a location where he could start lifting, because Veronica’s pale, floppy flesh was hardly easy to move.
Of course Dr. Joe said nothing like “May I?” Still, his eyes met hers with an embarrassed sort of look, as if requesting permission.
Bam! In went another frozen block, adding to Veronica’s big fat collection of STUFF on the level of her aura. “Feeling like a jerk. Acting tough. That’s me.”
The dainty body within
Along with the usual indignities of having such a huge, uncomfortable body, Veronica kept a secret deep inside.
Sure, her body felt hot, melty, gross. Predictably, Veronica was filled with extreme self-loathing along with the visible fat. Yet, as she lay on her back, hour after hour, too large to move much, Veronica had a completely different sense of herself within.
Not real, this sense of self. She knew it. Yet this was precious to her. And consoling.
Within herself, Veronica was a pretty, dainty, little lady.
That was who she really was, that simple. That sweet.
Leaving her other kind of body behind
Soon I directed my client to move forward within this memory set to the last minutes of Veronica’s lifetime.
The big, fat medical specimen was still lying on a too-flimsy hospital bed. Swallowing was difficult. Breathing was really hard, too.
Doctors had scraped fat off different parts of her body, examining it as part of their research. Scars were in the process of healing, although some of these surgically inflicted wounds had become so infected that healing was very, very slow.
Choking, Veronica struggled alone through her very last breath.
Soon she was aware of herself in a body of light. This is common, after a “death” here at Earth School.
As my long-term client for Soul Energy Awakening Hypnosis®, Gladys was used to this kind of experience, making a transition from a human fleshy body to the more familiar, angelic, vibration. This is the kind of body we wear during a life between lives.
Only this time her light body took a long time to get used to. Veronica was so deeply identified with that weirdly and wildly fleshy body. Her cherished construct, feeling like the dainty little lady, dropped of right away. By contrast, the habit of that overwhelming physicality took quite a while to disappate, even measured in angel time units of sweet eternity.
Eventually Veronica cleaned up nicely, of course. If you think the Betty Ford Clinic is great, wait until you experience what happens in Celestial Rehab! And it’s free!
Later in this session for Gladys, I would be sure to clean up all the frozen blocks remaining from the Veronica lifetime. Before doing this, however, I guided her to a soul-level review of that lifetime.
What did Veronica accomplish in that lifetime?
Was it merely karmic payback or a soul’s choice for big, fat learning?
Both are common underlying factors in a human lifetime. Why don’t we know this while living the life? Hey, it’s a school here.
Sorry. I don’t mean to sound glib or dismissive. Long-term Earth School is fabulous, even prestigious. Each life can move a person forward so fast on a path to Enlightenment — even a hideous lifetime like the one Veronica finished.
Nonetheless, while we’re identified with a difficult lifetime, sure, life can suck. Every bit of that suffering is terribly real.
Later we understand better what was being accomplished at that school without proper labels, funny Earth School.
Now that Veronica was in a position to know, I guided her toward finding the answer.
Dignity was one of the things she learned about. Another was joy, because any prisoner locked in a cell gains appreciation for freedom after release, and Veronica’s cell had been spectacularly grotesque. Hence there would be major contrast.
A deep understanding of pain had been a gift to this soul. Though the lifetime was ended, Veronica’s gift would be worn eternally.
Another plus for Veronica was how she had broken an old pattern, threading through many lifetimes prior to this one. In the past, Veronica wouldn’t stick around to fix problems. She would run away.
Well, not in that body, she couldn’t. She learned how to stay and face things. Unpleasant things. Yet even “the worst” could not destroy her soul, as she had feared.
Did Veronica accomplish anything for others, besides “advancing science” in the particular culture and time where she lived?
Appreciating courtesy of her life review, guess what? That human-level medical sacrifice, with all the proddings and scrapings, might have helped others, but that was trivial compared to the real….
Healing, healing, healing
How this woman wound up healing others! With all the physical freakiness, Veronica shifted spiritually to an internal position of non-judgment. No, she was no practicing Buddhist in that lifetime. She didn’t take a single growth seminar. Instead, living at Earth School taught her. Veronica had to develop non-judgment, in a slow and cumulative way.
Because of the very developed level of consciousness Gladys brought to this lifetime as Veronica, there was also a deep and loving kind of compassion.
So the way life worked energetically for this beyond-ugly woman was this:
As The Grotesquely Fat Lady, Veronica became a symbol, or object, to others. She didn’t look cute, with firm flesh, like the woman pictured at the top of this post. Veronica’s skin was pale, even looking a little blue in places. Nothing about that flab was attractive. And she wasn’t propped up cutely, nibbling chocolate covered strawberries in a provocative manner. Nothing cute or glam whatsoever.
Seeing her, most people would project their deepest fears and self-loathing onto her. Medical personnel, like Dr. Joe, also brought in their human revulsions, emotional suffering, and exhaustion. Because, wherever Veronica’s life took place, doctors weren’t supposed to have feelings. (Gee, in how many places and times in history could that insane custom be true?)
Doctors and nurses encountered by Veronica weren’t allowed to have feelings, any more than she was supposed to have feelings.
What happened energetically to all the medical staff in attendance on her, whether pushing and prodding or taking care of Veronica’s survival needs? Energetically, Veronica had been a kind of living shrine. People would lay down their burdens of fear and pain. She would absorb it.
No, she didn’t know that she absorbed it. At the time, she was aware of little beyond struggling to feel like a dainty little lady, hiding her rage at how she was medicalized and objectified, living with chronic shame. All that gave Veronica plenty to notice.
Yet she healed. At the time of her life review, Veronica finally understood that.
Conclusion, for now
In a society where so many people struggle with weight issues, the “biggest crime” most Americans can commit is “being fat.
Look, I don’t feel that way. And probably you don’t either, unless you have a big, visible weight problem. In which case you have to deal with horrible loathing from strangers and also, maybe, yourself.
Veronica’s lifetime was unusual, not just her truly huge size but also that healing service she performed spiritually.
Do all people with physical deformities or highly visible problems do the same thing? How would I know? All I do is help one person at a time, one session at a time. Sometimes with a regression, sometimes using techniques like cutting cords of attachment. Or sometimes I use skills of energetic literacy for research, doing aura reading etc. to learn more about a person’s who-you-be.
Generalizing is the easy job of amateur healers. Any seasoned professional dwells humbly in nuance.
However I do know this truth. Life on earth, for each of us, can be so much more than we ever dreamed.
And we never know how many people we have helped, nor how magnificent we really are spiritual. We don’t really get it, because Earth School is designed that way on purpose. We don’t find out fully until the Divinely given review that comes after a lifetime.
