Earlier today, I received my first B.E.S.T. session. Holy cow! Wowsers! Oh my goodness! It was so very potent and incredible. It was clarifying, cathartic and a bit beyond my understanding.
It seems like this is the website of the creator of B.E.S.T.: www.morter.com and it has some good descriptions of what it is.
I saw Michele Groux – a grounded, pragmatic and solid practitioner of B.E.S.T. here in Charlottesville. I would highly recommend her work. Her website is www.completebalance.net
The only disclaimer (or concern?) about receiving a session of this potent modality is this:
If you might have suppressed feelings about something (say anger or resentment or jealousy or [insert potent emotion here]) and you are willing and ready to uproot those feelings and get to the bottom of your subconscious misunderstandings and confusion, then you will most likely have a powerful session. Then if you have a powerful session, you will require time to integrate the inner shifts.
In my case, I have been receiving bodywork for years now – since 2002. So maybe my system is more capable or more ready to process some serious stuff. In any case, you might want to schedule your B.E.S.T. session on a day off. If you must interact with strangers or in an environment where speaking your full truth is frowned upon… then at least give yourself 2 – 4 hours to integrate it. Having unstructured down time after a session is good (napping, sitting in the sun and staring at the trees and the sky, etc). You might need that level of integration time.
With that out of the way, why do I highly recommend a B.E.S.T. treatment?
Here is some of what I did, all in one session: (which was close to 90 minutes)
Became clear, consciously and subconsciously about my name – I have been given more than one spiritual name so I was unsure which was for my highest good. Now I feel very clear.
I cleared confusion, shame and feelings of regret around an event which happened 13 years ago. I cleared misunderstandings about an event which happened in the late 90’s. I became clear about what a bodily ailment had to do with – it was subconscious in origin. I’m pretty sure I cleared up some stuff around one of my parents. Somehow I even cleared up some stuff around two future dates… That was pretty interesting!
And this list was only about half of what I accomplished in the 90 minutes. I left feeling pretty woozy – she had me walk around the halls of the office building, swinging my arms to help reconnect my reoriented nervous system to my body. Fortunately I parked about half a mile away so I was not driving immediately. I walked back to my car a bit gingerly (maybe I would recommend you have someone drop you off and then pick you back up) 🙂 if possible of course.
It involved eye movement, breathing, visualization, positive belief words and numbers in addition to the practitioner doing muscle testing on the arms and feet.
I have received numerous sessions of the modality called Body Talk (TM) and I would say that B.E.S.T. somehow goes deeper (it does have a lot in its protocol to access and shift the subconscious mind). Or maybe I was just ready for this particular treatment on this particular day.
Nonetheless, it was awesome!
The powerful upsurge of inner shift-oriented psycho-emotional energy was very potent. It last for about 4 hours or so after the treatment. I have only felt that level of raging emotions in two other conditions: one was where I received a multiple hands treatment in Craniosacral Therapy and the other was during and after a powerful Womb Surround Process workshop with Myrna Martin. In this case, I had a lot to process and change, so my experience would probably be on the more extreme end of the spectrum. It was very cathartic, beneficial and I was forced to face my truth – up close and personal – and I now believe that my path will be more clear as a result. Wow!
I’m excited about exploring this modality further.
