I feel fortunate to have learned the skill of giving massage. I am a nurturing, compassionate person so being a massage therapist is in sync with those natural qualities.
I am so very impressed with people who trust enough.
When you think about it, a perfect stranger is entrusting their body to me, another perfect stranger–that’s a big deal!
I don’t take it lightly when someone trusts me to put my hands on them in a loving, non-judgmental way.
There is something so blissful about getting a massage. When it feels good and you relax, time is non-existent and you drift into a place of peace and deep euphoria. In the same way, there is so much beauty for me to observe someone getting a massage.
At times, lately, I feel as if I get to see God while giving massages.
God is the place in each and every one of us where we are happy, content, compassionate, and love ourselves. To me, God is a place where there is no stress, no rush, no worry, no inhibition. It is a place where we just trust and allow. We know that all is well in this moment.
Today, I had a client return for a second massage. The first massage was somewhat forced, his wife bought him a gift certificate and he didn’t really want to come.
At the end of the massage he said, “I knew I was stressed out, but I had no idea there was so much stress in my body”.
So today after arriving, he said that people in his life commented on his appearance the day after his massage–that he looked 10 years younger.
He felt it too.
He woke up in the middle of that night and was sweating profusely, obviously his body was letting go of all the stress that had built up. “I honestly think you saved my life”, he said.
Comments like that make my day worth living–give me a little more impetus to keep on healing. “You have healing hands”, “You have great energy”, “I am so relaxed”, “How do you know the right places to focus in on”?
The comments are great and keep me motivated and they all come from the place of perfection-God.
One sentiment I always incorporate into every massage is my Namaste’ greeting. I say it quietly to myself but I see their face and their essence receiving the truth, love, and peace I wish for them.
Namaste’: I honor the place in you where the entire Universe dwells–the place where there is truth, love, peace, health, and abundance. When you are in that place in you and I am in that place in me, we are ONE.
I feel fortune in my awareness. I am a massage therapist and I see God with every massage I give!
