The story that we’re diving into today, is one that I deeply cherish, as it’s a great example of the awakening process in action that occurred recently. One of the things about working with practitioners that gets to be rather interesting, is that oftentimes they’ve been down their path for quite a while, so some of the nuances to what it looks like to become more conscious and aware of the reality around them, get lost with time or in overarching major significant details. Today we have Chris Waychoff with us and his journey is incredibly exciting as he had already
been involved in the spiritual realm, in the way of wanting to support practitioners, yet hadn’t gone through that same process himself. Yet when it hit, it changed everything about his life.
Chris is an accountant, working with numbers, being very logically oriented yet had some interesting experiences in childhood with seeing the ghost of his grandmother but admitted that empathy and sensitivity to the world around him was not something that boys ‘did’, having grown up in the 60s and 70s. Walking more of a traditional path, Chris found himself in the very left brain career that he had had. It wasn’t until he wanted to collaborate with Christy Strauch on a project in encouraging individuals to have more ritual in their life, did his own life get turned on its head. After having started mysticsforhire.com and connecting with psychics, mystics and healers, including myself, did Chris get invited to go to a conference with Polly Wirum and Tony Redhouse, both of whom have been featured on Bring on the Woo, that Chris had an awakening experience that would enhance and enrich his life by simply becoming more aware of himself.
After completing a ceremony with Tony, at the end of the retreat with Polly, Chris’s sense of heart centeredness, empathy and sensitivity to the world around him became clear and amplified, almost to the point of overwhelm. With guidance from myself and other incredible practitioners, he has now found that it is much easier to feel those energies, on his own terms, while respecting others’ space as well. A very common mistake when first learning how to manage your own energy is to intentionally or unintentionally overlap with someone else’s field. He now is able to use grounding tools and shielding practices to help him feel more comfortable and confident in the world yet also embracing his abilities. A great example of this is that Chris has always been aware to some degree that he’s needed to meet clients in person to be able to discern whether or not they’re a fit to work together. Yet now can even identify it more strongly as his ability to read their energy and find compatibility between them and him.
Some of the big takeaways from his story are accepting and trusting the process even if it can feel overwhelming because on the other side of tuning in to the sensitivities is the worlds where peace can be found amidst the chaos.
