I like to start with what I get. Without any information from the client other than your intention for the session: a reading, energetic healing, or combination. It is good to be clear on what you are wanting from your session. And to be open to the messages that show up for you. I do my best to share the messages I receive clearly and precisely. Some dialogue is necessary to know that you understand as I go.
Be open to the messages that show up. So often we are fixated on one outcome which keeps us from hearing what we need to hear. Let go of the outcome and see what messages are for you. Take time after to integrate and consider how you feel about the messages.
*Disclaimer: I get many different messages for clients. None of these are meant to diagnose or replace a medical or psychological professional of any kind. The messages are simply information for you to discern.
