In my recent blog post, I delved into the power of intuition and its role in guiding us towards what is best, especially in my line of work as a complementary therapist. Little did I know that shortly after sharing those thoughts, I would encounter a heartwarming experience that not only affirmed my belief in intuition but left me in awe of its profound impact.

It all began when I received a request to treat a young child who had been expressing discomfort with the simple phrase, “it hurts.” Uncertain about the specifics of his discomfort, I relied on my intuition to guide me through the session, trusting that it would lead me to the right course of action.

Upon my arrival, I was greeted by a 21-month-old child who approached me with open arms, eager to connect. As I observed, he attentively watched as I performed corrections on the family dog, seemingly intrigued by the process. Without hesitation, he positioned himself in front of me, offering access to his back—a gesture that spoke volumes despite his young age.

I proceeded with the treatment, and to my amazement, he cooperated without any resistance, displaying a level of trust and understanding that was beyond his years. After each session, he would walk around briefly before returning to the same position, indicating his desire for more. His willingness to engage in the process was both humbling and inspiring.

As the session progressed, he surprised me by guiding my hand to his neck, indicating an area that required attention. With each interaction, his laughter and smiles were contagious, reflecting the joy he found in the healing process.

It wasn’t until one of his parents mentioned his occasional ear discomfort that everything fell into place. His intuitive connection with me, his willingness to receive treatment, and his instinctive communication were all pieces of a puzzle that seamlessly came together.

In the days following the sessions, his mother reached out with a heartfelt testimonial, expressing her gratitude for the positive changes she observed in her child. From increased mobility to a newfound sense of joy and sociability, the transformation was undeniable.

Reflecting on this experience, I couldn’t help but marvel at the mysterious ways in which intuition works. How did this young child know that I was a complementary therapist? How did he instinctively understand the healing process?

  • Intuitive Sensitivity: Children are naturally intuitive beings. They haven’t yet developed the filters and scepticism that adults often acquire over time. This means they are more open to perceiving subtle energies and emotions. They may pick up on the calm and nurturing aura that many complementary therapists emit.
  • Empathy and Compassion: Complementary therapists often possess a strong sense of empathy and compassion. These qualities are like magnets to children, who are drawn to caregivers and adults who show genuine care and understanding. When a child encounters someone who exudes warmth and kindness, they are likely to feel a sense of comfort and safety.
  • Non-Verbal Communication: Children pay close attention to non-verbal cues such as body language, facial expressions, and tone of voice. Complementary therapists often communicate their nurturing nature through gentle gestures, soft speech, and reassuring smiles. These non-verbal signals can be very powerful in conveying a sense of healing presence.
  • Resonance with Healing Energy: Even though children may not have the vocabulary to describe it, they can feel the energetic vibrations of individuals around them. Complementary therapists often carry a healing energy that can be sensed on a subtle level. This energy may manifest as a feeling of peace, tranquillity, or comfort, which children are sensitive to and drawn towards.

While my analytical mind sought answers, I realised that some things are meant to remain a beautiful mystery. What mattered most was the profound connection formed, the healing that took place, and the invaluable lesson learned—that intuition, when trusted and embraced, has the power to lead us exactly where we need to be.

As I continue on this journey, I carry with me the memory of that heartwarming encounter, serving as a reminder of the limitless potential that lies within each of us, waiting to be unlocked through the power of intuition.
