i have been graced with the capability of bestowing healing hugs.
I have coined the term hugjustments [hug-justments = combination of the words hug and adjustment]
it is challenging for me to describe them, but when pressed, I state that they are a synergy of a hug, massage, and back adjustment/re-alignment that liberates slow moving or stagnant energy in the body. benefits include movement of blood, bone, and breath.
others have described them as :
chiropractic hugs (due to the fact that i more often than not I crack folk's backs)
having earth mama vibes
some of my favorite comments have been:
that my hug removed '7 layers of karma'
"I feel taller"
"You're erasing high school and middle school"
I feel reborn
that got the energy moving again
I am a new person
and the many 'thank you, I needed that...how did you know?'
just received a lovely story from j.h. that i wish to share :
"I was standing next to you on two different occasions and witnessed you give
a person a hug at each place. Both of those people turned to me (as I
recall this was after you had gone) and said, “Wow! That was one of
the best hugs I’ve ever received.” Prior to that I had never heard
anyone say that about any hug they had received, and it happened
it is great to get feedback about the effect that these hugs have on others.
I have been asked by several people to develop and teach a class on how to give these healing hugs, and I am in the process of developing a guide in both written and video form.
when questioned I stress empathy, intuition, strength, and practice as major catalysts to this transfer of positive energy. the trust of the receiver is paramount and I often state 'relax and breathe out, let your weight go...because I got you'
keep a lookout for the travelling healing hugger and be sure to get razzed if you are called to do so when in my physical presence
