To read part one where Mini had a session with Kim from Rainbow Light Therapies, check out Excavating Undertones with Rainbow Light Therapies |Local Biz Review. This time, it was my turn to take time out and head to Langwarrin to the cosy hideaway that is Rainbow Light Therapies.
I’ve been really stressed out lately. I think it’s the kids, the hot weather, the work and the life. I explained all this to Kim during our session and within minutes she confirmed what I already knew: anxiety. I’ve struggled with it on and off my whole adult life and even though I am all about transparency, I don’t like admitting when I have it. But Kim saw through that almost instantly and had me up on her treatment table as quick as a flash.
This is where Kim is one of the most interesting people I have ever met. Behind her eyes I just know that there is so much going on. She’s picking up on things unseen and feeling energy but her manner is so calm, so in control that I found myself wanting to throw myself at her feet and wail “Fixxxxx meeeeeee.” Kim would probably argue that there’s nothing to fix. That stress and anxiety are a natural part of life and that the strategies in coping with, rather than trying to rid ourselves of, are going to have a much more positive impact in the long term.
During my treatment, I lay on a treatment table (like a massage table) and, with my permission, Kim lightly touched different areas of my body. She was clearing out all the old crap by sweeping it out through my feet.
What I felt: Emotional. I cried. A lightening in my stomach area.
What I thought about: Well, nothing really. We chatted during the treatment but I was very much in the moment with Kim.
What happened afterwards: I lost my appetite for a few days. Thought ALOT about the topics we had covered. Tried to be more gentle with myself and stop being such a psycho. It seemed to work.
It ended up being quite a personal experience (more personal than when I got a spray tan before I met Matty J and got my boobs out with a very nice woman I’d met on the internet) so it’s hard to put it into words without delving into 97 of my ongoing issues. But I did feel lighter afterwards and I felt compelled to make another appointment.
Mini Update: She is still sleeping really well. She does yoga every night before bed and, apart from when she was recently sick, she has been staying in her bed all night. Yay!
