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 – Soul Integration
August 11, 2017
Some of the themes of GRACE Integrity and GRACE Recovery are repeated, and for good reason: it’s taken us sometimes years to build up these egoic walls that shut us off from the relationships around us, and even our own vibrational frequency.
This session focused on “soul integration,” which ultimately consists of recovering pieces of your soul that you “lost” or “gave away” in various situations in your life.
For me, during this session, this came back around as relationships. I give a lot to a relationship. Of course, it’s normal and even healthy to open up and give when in a relationship of any kind (family, friendship, lovers), but often times people can find themselves giving “too much.” For me, I’m not talking about gifts, or even really energy exchanged. But I do put out a lot of energy internally – thinking about relationships can take up a lot of time for me. Part of this circles back around to my good friend anxiety that I’ve talked a lot about during this blog, too. My anxiety doesn’t necessarily manifest in the form of social anxiety, but I experience anxiety about my relationships in a way that has the tendency to externalize my safety or calmness (or upsetness).
So, with this realization on the forefront of my mind, I sank into the energy healing session and let it all flow. This, by the way, is much easier said than done. But when my mind wanders, I bring it back to my heartspace. A key “focus” that has been explained to me is to focus on your heart and imagine it expand and contract with your breath – bringing in all the goodness that surrounds you, and exhaling what you no longer need. These entities of “goodness” and “expired energy” don’t necessarily need to be labeled, but if that helps you, then go for it (as long as you can avoid getting swept away into the labels, what they mean, and all the mental tangents that can follow).
Think about ways in which you have given away your power – pieces of yourself. Whether it’s to a current or past relationship, an insatiable drive for success (that negatively impacts other areas of your life), or even just putting everyone before your self.
It’s important to take time out to love yourself. You’d always let a friend know that you’re there to listen – why not do the same for yourself?
