I just wrote regarding "healing crisis" on the FAQ page. I think that it is a good idea to describe what a healing crisis might look like by describing my own. My healing crisis seems to always come in two forms: migraine headache and re-visiting memories hard. Right now there are no other practicing MFR therapists in Lubbock that I can find. I am looking for one, though so....anyway, all my healing crises are attached to the seminars I attend, where I spend about 2 hours a day on another student's table. Headaches are the big pain for me. I know that they are connected to the shifting and healing in my body and associated healing crisis, therefore I try to not medicate and ride it out. Honestly, I usually can only make it to the third day, when I must choose between the seminar and the ER, and then I take medication to keep myself at the seminar. With these migraines always come some memory that I have to "work through". I put quotes around this because I want to highlight the fact that "working through" will look completely different for each person for each crisis. It cannot be described, and I cannot warn you what to expect, only to expect something. Every time I go through this, I experience exponential spiritual growth (or what seems to me to be exponential..it could be snail's pace to anyone else..) and understanding with it. I experience forgiveness of self and others, clarity of thought, direction and intention, and renewed hope. This is my experience, I cannot speak for others. I will say that among the community of MFR therapists, I hear stories of similar periods of spiritual growth associated with their healing.
Along with the headaches and memories, I will often have some soreness that feels like achy flu muscles or like I ran too far. I get very tired, and also very restless. sometimes I cannot sleep, but most often I sleep very deeply and have odd dreams. The first time, it was a bit dis-combobulating, even though I was told to expect such. However, no one can tell anyone else what to expect, and such was the case with me. Every time I work my way through, I am better for it. Now, I actually invite the crisis, knowing it is but one more valley, just a road trip to my Oceanside destination. Two things John Barnes always says, "healing is a journey, not an event", and "healing is messy ". I am worth it. Healing is worth it. So onward I go!!
