  1. Deborah,
    These are wonderful suggestions! Thank you!

    As a massage therapist and Reiki practitioner, I have often walked away from a session with a headache or other malady that I picked up from the client. I was even picking up on things before the client arrived.

    So I now bathe myself in white light, ask all negative energy to leave, and recite a very short but powerful statement calling that I will only be affected by positive thoughts, feelings, and actions. I have found it extremely useful.

    If by chance I still feel affected after a session by a client’s energy or just energy I inadvertently picked up during the day, I use a technique to “call back my energy, cleanse it, and take it back in”. This technique allows me to feel invigorated in my own energy and not be carrying around everyone else’s problems, fears, phobias, and pain.

  2. Deborah,
    I am loving the tips and tricks………………every week I learn something new and insightful to take away and utilize in my EFT work.
    Looking forward to the next Level 3.
