Finding a psychologist/therapist when you're a medium is a bit of a mine field. I've been lucky to have been guided a few years ago to a wonderful therapist here in Flagstaff who ended up being part of The Little Light Project.
But recently, I felt I needed to go deeper—finally start to address my inner child. All signs pointed to finding a new therapist.
My dear friend and ex-colleague suggested a psychologist here in town so I reached out for an appointment and was able to get in to see her last Friday. Normally, I research the hell out of who I'm seeing but this time, I just went with the recommendation and was assured by my friend she would be "cool" with my intuitive side.
Typically, the moment I start to explain how children in spirit come to me and have led me to pass messages to families and law enforcement, I know whether the therapist is about to go all "traditional diagnosis, like schizophrenia" on me. Or suggest another psychologist. I felt the opposite of that on Friday.
One of the things I've come to learn about my intution is when a child in spirit is near and hasn't crossed into the light yet, or my inner child wants to speak up, I will get this weird pulsating/buzzing energy on my right hip. It's very specific. I felt that very sensation all day on Friday leading up to the session. I felt it through the session, as well. It only stopped when I left.
My new psychologist didn't look at me like I had three heads when I talked about why I was there. In fact, when I mentioned I was guided to buy a book at the local bookstore that wasn't even housed in the "woo woo" section of the store but was a book about shamanism, she said, "I have that book. It's wonderful." The book is old as the hills and most people aren't looking to read a book about shamanic soul retreival practices. At least most psychologists I know.
I talked a mile a minute about everything that's happened in my life over the past four years and my desire to try to connect with my inner child more. Integrate her more. She said, "well, all of these kids in spirit have been coming to you for years, and now she's coming to you because you're ready." Little did I know her speciality is helping people heal their inner child.
I feel, through EMDR therapy and some soul retrieval work, I'll be able to finally integrate Little Kiers. Because I was raped as a young child, Little Kiers feels very separate from me and equates abuse with love. It's a very strange feeling because that doesn't jive at all with my adult self.
As we were wrapping up the session, she looked at me and said, "I'm excited to see what we work on in the future together." I had also channeled that our meeting was bigger than helping me heal my inner child. She told me she has helped children who have been abused for over 15 years. I told her about my plans to speak internationally on the subject of childhood abuse/represssion and intuitive healing.
It's amazing to see how the puzzle pieces of life fit together if I'm paying attention. And it's also such a gift to find a professional who not only doesn't think I'm crazy, but admittedly uses her intuitive gifts in every facet of her life.
