These men have a back breaking job, literally! This is an actual job, because the old streets of Istanbul are narrow and the alleyways are even narrower, so delivery vehicles simply can’t deliver product to stores. Goods can only be delivered is on the backs of strong men.
Many of us suffer from back pain from time to time, and sometimes the things that worked for us in the past just don’t anymore. I have this person’s permission to tell the story about his back pain and how energy healing worked for him, even though he had no idea what it was and was very skeptical.
About 10 years ago, I was having dinner with a friend and colleague, and I noticed that he was walking bent over from the waist. This man is a tall, slim, attractive guy who smiles constantly and is always cheerful. To see pain on his face and see him walking like that made me concerned.
I asked him what was going on. He told me that he had put his back out 6 weeks earlier and no matter what he did or who he saw, (doctor, physiotherapist, acupuncturist, or massage therapy), nothing was helping.
I told him that I did this energy healing thing. It was kinda woo woo, but it might help. He looked at me as if I was from Mars and laughed. I continued by asking, what did he have to lose? I would send him a treatment when he was asleep and it would either work or not, he didn’t have to do anything but sleep. He very skeptically agreed.
I hadn’t done a lot of long distance work and so it was an experiment for me as well as him, but I didn’t tell him that.
The next day I gave him a treatment at about 3:00pm and sent it to him for sometime in the wee hours of the morning. I also wondered how much relief he would get and how many treatments it would take for him to be able to stand straight, as most issues don’t resolve in one treatment. This turned out to be one of the exceptions.
A couple weeks later we were set to work together for the day. He gets out of his truck, stands straight and hands me a hundred dollar bill and says, I don’t know what you did, but thanks.
The story goes that he got up the next morning and took a shower. He walked back into the bedroom and his wife looks at him in amazement. He says what? She said, you are standing up straight.
He hadn’t noticed! This is the thing I have noticed about the work I do. Often changes happen in mind, body and spirit, that are so subtle and natural that the client may not even notice until someone points the change out to them.
