Welcome to Healing Journeys - a corner of Basmati.com where you can read about our team's real experiences with different holistic healing modalities. Trying a new type of healing can be overwhelming and you might first want to hear about someone's experience before taking the plunge. Healing Journeys will cover many different types of healing.
This particular subsection or series of Healing Journeys will be an exploration of energy healing with Basmati's Ursula Squire. Each week, I'll write about my newest experiences with energy healing. This blog will be quite candid, and often include documentation of my thoughts around a particular session. My goal is to share what I have learned and make available information for different healing modalities that you may be curious about or interested in trying.
Full disclosure: I've never tried energy healing before, and I'm excited by holistic healing modalities. As a person who has anxious and OCD tendencies, but who doesn't feel that Western medicine is the right fit, I've decided to embark on this amazing journey, and I'd like to share with all of you!

GRACE Integrity: Inner Trinity
July 4, 2017
Recognizing one’s place in the universe is really, really important. I’m a part of something. You’re a part of something. The sooner this clicks for you (and me), the sooner we can all begin working toward the higher collective.
This session focused on the Inner Trinity of uniting my inner Mother/Father/Child energies. The instructions said to focus on earliest memories and just kind of bask in them. Well, bask I did. I noticed that I tend to gloss over a lot of the good memories, yet some of the harsher memories of my childhood were easy to pinpoint – a broken arm, a fight with a best friend, being grounded. This session gave me a chance to reflect on two primary things: first, I had an amazing childhood. I know not everyone does, so I do feel really lucky. It’s easy to focus on the things you didn’t like about your childhood, or the negative aspects you’ve internalized from your parents (like the self criticism I talked about on June 10’s session). But both by comparison and objectively, my childhood rocked. I reflected on how I am so lucky to have a little brother who was always there to play with me. How I was exposed to the outdoors regularly (apparently, not everyone can light a campfire so easily). I had great pets, parents, friends, and experiences. I was always encouraged to read. My parents didn’t have a lot of money when I was growing up, but I always had what I needed, and enough of what I wanted. My brother I received an incredible education that cost more than their mortgage every month. The point of this post isn’t to talk about how great my childhood was, but to encourage others to reflect. A broken arm of a fight with my friend aren’t who I am – so why were those the memories that so readily floated to the surface when “think about your childhood” is asked?
Which leads me to the second realization: I (and most humans) have a negativity bias. When I sat down and really thought about it, things are much better than the picture painted by the few quickly recalled memories or concepts. They say energy follows thoughts. So, it’s even more important to recognize all the good times and vibes in your life!
I focused on channeling the positive things I internalized from my mother and father, along with my place (the child) in them: morality, kindness, generosity, money management.
This was a particularly healing session for me in the sense that I healed with concepts of my past. I’m not a bad person because I’ve made mistakes. I have core values that were instilled in me at a young age. I like my past. I like my childhood. I like who I was, and I like who all of this has helped me become. I respect my parents. I am grateful for my brother. These are the feelings that fill my heartspace (remember… the heartspace I didn’t know how to connect to on session one? It’s happening. It’s a feeling). I’m learning to feel these emotions rather than only intellectualize them.
And that’s what this whole journey is about.
