Madeleine - Australia
I had my first EBM about 3 months ago and, to be honest, I was a little bit nervous. I had heard how amazing EBMs were from a friend but I still had some reservations. What would it feel like to be so vulnerable with another person? What if I couldn’t relax? Would I feel embarrassed? Self-conscious? Uncomfortable? Anxious? Scared even? Would it feel a bit like I was getting a PAP smear? You know, a little bit awkward and uncomfortable but you go along with it because you know it’s for the best…
Well I can tell you right now that the moment I walked through the door for my first EBM, my fears and reservations dissolved. I have honestly never felt more loved, cared for, honoured in all my life than during my EBM sessions. The level of respect she brings to her clients is beyond compare. There is simply no room for anxious or uncomfortable when you are enveloped in that level of love and care!
Having said that, was it still hard to be that vulnerable with another person? Yes. Most definitely. But in a good way if that makes sense. It’s something I was not used to, that I’m still not used to. However, with each session I have had since then (7 I think), I have allowed myself to become just a bit more vulnerable, to surrender just a little bit more. Not to the practitioner, but to myself. For that is what an EBM is all about for me: connecting with myself and feeling that tender, gorgeous woman inside. Allowing her to come to the surface and be seen. Dropping the protection I’ve had up (to various extents) since I was in Primary School, maybe even earlier.
I leave an EBM session feeling more myself than I have ever felt before. Feeling more tender, vulnerable, gentle and loving; but also more powerful. I know that sounds like an oxymoron but that’s exactly how it feels - like I’ve just discovered this amazing, precious jewel that has the potential to bring incredible things to this world. And all I have to do is accept, appreciate and connect to the woman I am. That’s it. And that’s exactly what EBMs help me to do.
