It's hard for me to not address that date up there, precisely 20 years after 9/11 and the shockwaves that reverberate still through the world today from that event when planes suddenly fell from the sky. There were countless acts of incredible bravery that day too. I often wish these had been given rather more press coverage, especially knowing that the way we see things presented can so shape the way we think about things. Fear is very sticky for catching people's attention, almost as sticky as sex, so it does often get used as a tool when attention-grabbing is the goal. Mind you, there was at least one movie that I'm aware of about a planeful of very brave people and I recall reading all kinds of on-the-spot reporting of the incredible outflow of goodness that poured in from everywhere in response to the need. One particularly insightful reporter recalled the initial effective and beautifully implemented grass roots help which, by all reports, got increasingly disconnected later as people focused less on what they felt was needed to other considerations.
All of this is really a lot to process It's hard for me to not recall those events without seeing elements of fire, grief and angst. Sound familiar? Anyone feeling overwhelmed recently?
If you have been feeling fire-y, angry or grieved actions or words coming your way, this session is for you. If you've felt your heart needed some realtime buttressing and healing, this session's just for you. If you think this is a cool idea anyway, perfect. Please bring that effective, beautiful healing presence to this weekend's session. I have a couple of ideas below on how this might be done, recognizing that there are many ways which work well so innovation and sharing of methods is definitely encouraged and can be really inspiring.
Let's focus on the heart this week. After covering the basics: clear, ground and create your own protected space, focus on your heart. Visualize (or feel or hear/play music for or do whatever it is your imagination does) it beating in front of you. Note what stands out for you. This could be its color, texture, scars, something covering, missing or shining out from it; whatever is there. Some you may be intersted in removing, others could maybe use uncovering or healing. You may see blood or energy flowing in and out and connections to various body parts, people, etc. These you may want to strengthen?
Once there and well connected to your heart, ask it whatever you'd like to ask. You may start with what would be most beneficial for your heart, what it wants, how you can strengthen it. There's so many questions you could ask so you may want to consider this now and see what comes up.
Please let us know below if you have any special healing requests or if you have any other random (or not so random) thoughts to share, including how your experience went. There really is an endless variety of ways this can go and the connection + inherent in sharing these experiences are definitely healing balms for the heart

We especially welcome new Roundtable members to our sessions. This week that group includes Heather, Honey Bee, ShebaBear, Redacted Sojourner, Stephendrori 20VisioN20, Dawn and BMWhic.
We hope you you check in and perhaps join us. No experience or 'special abilities' required. A sense of wonder and fun recommended.
If the exact time in your area does not work for you, then just join when you can. Many of us have no problems connecting a few hours earlier or later but find somewhere in a 24-hour window works best. Some people have even set the intention to join in dream time.
Instructions are posted below. Let us know if you have any questions and welcome.
The time for the session is the same each week based on 8am Sunday, New Zealand time, unless there is a daylight saving change in you area (if so, just go by 8am Auckland, New Zealand time). This time is calculated to make the sessions accessible to as many as possible.
USA: Saturday: 4 pm EDT, 2 PM MDT, 3 pm CDT, 1 pm PDT
Europe: France (Paris), Switzerland, Sweden, Saturday: 10 pm
UK: England (London), Ireland (Dublin), Saturday: 9 pm
Russia: (Moscow), Saturday: 11 pm
South Africa: (Johannesburg), Saturday: 10 pm
Australia: (Sydney, AEST) Sunday: 6 am, (Perth) Sunday, 4 am (remember, you can do the session out of time within 24 hours and it will work exactly the same)
PS my own contribution this week will almost certainly include some soothing waves of healing as it seems just the right antidote to those out of bounds fires
About these Sessions
For those new to these sessions, or if you simply want to be reminded on how to connect in and what methods you can use to send healing, see this article here.
The purpose of these weekly sessions is to send healing to each participant, which can be accomplished by focusing on individuals or the group, depending on what methods you chose to use. You are always free to set secondary intentions around focusing on world events that may need some helping energy — on other levels our group also works in a multi-dimensional sense. Sometimes we get healing requests within the replies here, so do check back here just before the sessions begins.
Let us know if you are joining by responding below or or contacting us through the Contact Forum Admin link here. The session is 20-30 minutes and you can send, and or receive healing; it is up to you. Anyone can heal. No training is required to participate.
Please provide any feedback on here if you receive any and feel comfortable sharing.
The place we have chosen to visualize when first connecting in, and to anchor that connection, is a forest clearing. Think of an opening inside a forest where there is a large crystal in the center that we gather around. The ground could have moss or grass, perhaps even dirt or another surface that appears to you. There may be the sound of a waterfall nearby which could result in a river that you could see, or not. You could start off here and then go off to another place of your choosing to send and/or receive healing. Some people find themselves being taken on a journey where they are shown other things during a session, but we all experience this in our own unique ways.
You can find further information about these sessions through the link, Remote Group Healing, via the INFO link in the menu here on The Roundtable.
