I tried something new yesterday! The London Spiritual Movement organizes Group Healings and Socials every month. Last night I went to one of their events as a healing volunteer. The night was organized to support a local children's charity called Kids Company that "works with 17,000 vulnerable children in London, empowering those who have had enormous emotional challenges to lead positive and fulfilling lives." The evening started with a talk from a Kids Company representative, told us about a girl who lived on the streets throughout her teenage years, until they helped her reintegrate into society. The healing socials always run on a donation basis, and yesterday the proceeds went to Kids Company.
The actual healing session was a lot of fun to be a part of. There must have been about 60 people there to receive healing. They sat in the center of the room, in a long line of chairs that were laid out in spiral formation. The meeting organizer led us through an opening meditation, and then each of the healers made their way to a Healee. Each person get's a few minutes of healing. As a healer you go from one person to the next, without talking to them or saying much. There's not much room, so I would place my hands on their shoulders and work from there. If there was a little bit of room to move, I'd give healing to the heart, throat, brow or crown chakra (so upper body and head). Sometimes it was easy to kneel behind them and ground from the hips - without touching. Otherwise I'd ground them from the shoulders, and then place them in a bubble of protective light before moving on to the next person.
Overall I enjoyed the evening. They played calming music with Indian chants in the background. The ceiling lights had a purple and white universe floating around the room. The ambience was cool, though the energy was a bit too much when I started out. After the opening meditation I started feeling awkward clutter in my upper body and on my left side. I think it was all of the energetic gunk from people around me. I drew my aura around me, and that helped. When you're aura's expanded it's easier to pick up on other people's energetic debris. Keeping my aura close and protected helped, and then I was able to get through the evening without a hitch. I think I'll go back in 2 weeks for the next event.
