Incredible Stories of Survival and Power

Last weekend was very special for me:

Our town had created a play on the local cemetery, where different actors played the roles of towns people who lived her during the area of World War 1. For obvious reasons, I was cast as the German immigrant, who, after humble beginnings in the silk mill, moved her family to town when her husband opened a silk mill here.

Being German, she was automatically seen as part of the enemy, and the small role that I had was truly about understanding her conflict and pain, especially since she had lived for decades in America and her children were born here.

I have to admit that I cried or almost cried during the rehearsals and performances, and other actors told me the same.

It was intense to put myself in her shoes, especially since I personally remember many of the hatred that Germans still received in the 70s and 80 when travelling to England or other countries that they used to be at war with. And clearly this situation is repeating itself today, with the many refugees that are considered potential terrorists due to their heritage or religion, even if they are someone’s grandmother who just wants to live with her family.

But another reason why I cried was, because I realized how many incredible stories I have heard over the years from my clients.

I have been honored to be let in on secrets about pain and abuse, death and war, illness, rape and so very many issues and trauma that are incredibly hard to imagine. People’s lives are stunning testimonies to how powerful we are, and at the same time, what heartbreaking trauma most of us had or still have to endure.

I have always been able to deeply relate. Not that I feel people’s pain as if it were mine, as I have always made sure that I don’t become an empath, like many of my colleagues who struggle to understand which of their feelings are theirs and which belong to another person.

But I am deeply, deeply compassionate, and care so much to help them release their struggle, that helping them with their pain can become somewhat of  a mission for me. I am grateful that as an energy healer and transformational coach, I can usually help them quickly to release those memories and feelings, by rebalancing their energy field in relation to those memories.

But what this work has taught me is a deep respect for human suffering. Respect the like we never talk about in public, as most of this just happens without ever being witnessed or honored more than in a very small, private circle.

Most people hold their pain in. They believe they shouldn’t complain, or if they have someone to blame for how they feel, that there is nothing they can do, as they don’t have the power to change that person or change what happened to them.

Most people that I work with have never heard themselves tell their own story in the way they do when we work together. But since we do EFT, we are free to just acknowledge the sadness, the pain, the anger or overwhelm that we are feeling, and release those feelings, even if the story behind it is hard to even talk about.

Once the feelings have calmed and can’t be triggered anymore, most people begin to see themselves in a different light. They begin to see themselves as survivors, as heroes, as capable, strong, powerful people who have the ability to control their lives in the way they want to.

In over 15 years of doing EFT, I have been seeing this over and over: when the pain and trauma is gone, people see who they really are, and they take control of their future in powerful ways.

It is an honor and privilege to do this work!

I offer free, 20 minute initial consultations, if you’d like to talk with me more about this.

Please email me, so we can set up a good time to talk!

Love

Ingrid
