"In Craniosacral Therapy one of the most profound 'tools' is to step far enough back from 'doing' as to not interfere with the work...  

 

Project nothing but simply be a skilled and informed witness ~ a compassionate presence. 

Trust the wisdom & intelligence of the system, the 'unerring potency' to do the work...

 

'Listen' ~

be present,

'be with' the system in compassionate neutrality ~

Become the witness and see how much vaster and more gracious this work will become ~ 

Just as we do not prise open the petals of a flower but rather witness the beautiful mystery of it's blossoming ~ "

 

Dissolving the 'I' ~

 

"We could think of ourselves as being like drops of water...
...where the body, the mind and the emotions ~ that whichg I call 'myself', 'me', ~ would be the drop of water, individuated & separate...
However we are also capable of dissolving the consciousness of the boundary of the water droplet that is 'I', and merging the conscious awareness with the infinite sea of the Soul ~ with Source, the Divine.
Craniosacral therapy is one active, engaged, way of reconnecting with the source of 'I' ~ 'I-ness' ~ the vast boundless Ocean of Spirit.
~ the Divine, out of which 'I' have arisen, and back into which the 'I' ultimately dissolves....
As the consciousness reconnects with Source, one finds oneself in the vast vibrational field of the Subtle, the formless field of 'Beingness'. 
In this space of conscious awareness, ~ Presence, the Subtle Field, ~ healing and transformation can be affected at the level of consciousness crystallizing into the physical. 
In this Subtle Field, thought affects matter and intention guides physical transformation and healing. 
This is where the real magic happens!"

The Bowl of Light ~

 

One way to look at healing is to gauge how much joy and peace we hold at the core.. & how much negative or unhealed memory is stored in the subtle field & body ~
~ Shame, anger, or any negative, contracted emotional state, consciously held, or unconsciously held, is bad medicine ~ 
Freedom comes from consciously touching the energy, in a supported therapeutic environment, 'unloading' the charge, & letting go at the subtle energy level where the emotions first get stored in the tissue, and in the psyche ~ 
This need for emotional freedom in the journey to full health, aliveness & joy, is one reason in my practice that I have developed Subtle Field Craniosacral Therapy as the way I come to this work... 
Another reason I work this way is born of unforgettable meetings & years of study with an awakened teacher, a true Guru, a number of highly conscious guides & an elderly Saint... But that is another story ~ 
Shame is only one of a long list of negative emotions that can be held in our body memory... It all has to go. 
Another guiding principle in my work is the Hawaiian story of the Bowl of Light... In a simple version... We are all born with a radiant perfect bowl of Light ~ the Light of our Soul ~ 
As we go through life, negative events and experiences place rocks into this bowl... Eventually, for those who's life path has many challenges,  enough rocks are added that they obscure or almost obscure the Light... 
(Aside: One way to tell when the bowl is filled with rocks... 
Just look at the eyes, do they hold sadness, depression, insecurity, resentment, sneakiness, anger, pride, lust, anxiety, fear... Or? 
Watch the actions, thoughts and words... do they shine brightly with joy, love, lightness of heart and kindness? ~ or is there something more contracted there...? ) 
But... 
(Praise be! )
At a certain time, with support, and through tremendous Grace... We can 'Huli' the bowl ~ (tip it over) and the Light shines radiantly again, untouched by the rocks that have now been released from the bowl... 
May all beings be free. May all beings find peace...
