Less than a week before Massage School is over. It is sad and exciting at the same time. My heart is doing well with being present with what is. I will miss being a part of this great group. I will miss the spiritual potency that is Crestone Colorado. I will not miss how every little character flaw I have is reflected back at me directly or confronted quickly (another bonus of being in Crestone). I will definitely miss all the amazing modalities we are learning and practicing daily. And I will miss Dan and Sue – the teachers here. What a majestic, magical, mystical, sublime program they have created here!
Manifesting what I want… this is the second time I have manifested what I need / want. Tonight as a gift from a practicum client I received a beautiful essential oil diffusor. I have seen one used in several of our classes and I thought I would like to have one for my apartment or office… And sure enough several weeks later, here it is!
Speaking of practicum clients, tonight I felt sad about leaving the school – and leaving all these awesome people who have allowed us to practice on them for the past ten weeks! Of course I may have been feeling my client’s sadness as well.
We are now cleaning for about an hour a day – today we dusted the leaves of all the plants (they have about two dozen, some of which are massive). I am mostly packed up except for clothes and food. This weekend I will load my car with non-food items as the bears are starting to wake up.
I have been giving a few extra bodywork sessions outside of school – usually in exchange for barter. I received a number of potent essential oils recently – and elk steaks! And I have more requests for sessions than I can accommodate. I both wish I could stay here longer and I am happy to be getting home and getting my business up and running again! Very bittersweet.
Last night – integrated massage I did amazing shiatsu plus acupressure and reflexology. Tonight I did awesome Swedish massage with passive stretching done in the midst of the Swedish. I loved it and so did my client. With all we have learned, I could literally do a thousand treatments and not have two be alike… kind of overwhelming and incredible at the same time!
I am praying I get the chance to check out on integrated tomorrow. If I don’t check out tomorrow, I might have to wait until Tuesday – the last day to possibly do it. He has only held one person back – saying they had to come back to give him another treatment in a few weeks. But I do not want to be the second!
We took a huge physiology test tonight – took two hours, 105 questions. It was crazy challenging. We will grade them Friday.
Now only the Anatomy Test left on Monday. Then the Marathon on Tuesday – seeing 4 clients over the course of 5 hours. Good preparation for a busy practice or spa type setting.
Then we are out of here! Wow!
