I thought it might benefit those who are not sure about booking a reading with me if I give you examples of what I do, and how I do it, and how it is evolving every time, almost every day.
When I say I "Read your energy" - what does that mean and what do I and/or you do with that information?
Energy is the first information I receive from you - and this is how it usually goes:
I begin with asking you to say your given name and then spell it for me. The vibration (energy) of your name and the vibration of your voice lets me "find" you. I have no idea how it works, but it feels like when you are looking for a certain word in a "Find a Word" puzzle, and you suddenly see it - your focus zeros in on it. Only my focus isn't on paper, it's on energy, space, vibration, "out there."
I then ask you (usually telepathically) if I may see your energy body. There are different levels of energy bodies, but "energy body" simplifies the explanation. I don't usually say this out loud to prevent confusion. I believe that I am speaking with your Higher Self when I ask this and on rare occasion have been told "no." So your soul will not let me see your energy if you don't want me to.
Then you show up in my awareness. Sometimes I see colors in my mind's eye, like a memory or imagination, and sometimes I just feel it.
I describe to you what I see (I Read your energy), and if my guides or your guides want me to interpret or explain something, I will. Often, I just give you what I get. It is for you to know and come to understand. So think about what the movement, colors, and shapes could mean to you. Sometimes your interpretation is much more critical to your understanding that anything I could say.
It's also just a snapshot of the moment. It doesn't mean your aura is a particular color or shape. These colors come about from the light that you are as an extension of Source, and like sunlight going through a prism, they result in color - you are a prism, and the condition of this prism expresses color and shape.
I spend a few minutes on describing what I see because I wouldn't see it if it meant nothing. This description (and oh, how I wish I could draw or paint) is my chance to help you to see the brilliant, fantastic embodiment that you are. If I say that Princess Diana's wedding dress is white - that is true - but it leaves out a multitude of details that allow you to form a picture in your mind. So, I endeavor to give you a Reading of what your energy looks like at the moment.
If your energy body looks shabby or dull, I will tell you. It's not a judgment. You should see mine on Saturday morning when my dog wakes me up to go potty at 4 am. Sometimes the process of having a Reading done makes you feel vulnerable, exposed, anxious, fearful, and those emotions show up. I read for a friend not too long ago who was very hesitant, and her energy swirled in slowly on the floor and gradually "stood up" when I said out loud to her, "I see you - you're safe."
To be honest, I don't know why my guides structure my Readings this way. Maybe in their Universal Humor, they are starting every conversation with the basics - energy - and when I see you as that pure form, then your soul responds with joy at being seen as you truly are - brilliant light.
