I don't know why, but in general I tend to get a little surprised by people who don't know what EPC is, more particularly spiritual people. Really? Most people have practiced this and have no idea, and in fact I would say that's true about 98% of the students I teach. I suppose it's just the label of which we define it that might not make sense to people, I know I'm certainly one of them at times.
If you don't know what EPC is, it's Etheric Plane Communication. The basic way I like to start discussing this with my students is that it's communicating with another being on the etheric plane. Some will go as far as to describe the etheric plane as the dream plane, though I don't equate the two as being the same, but that's a discussion for another day.
In this communication, you are able to speak with another being and begin the process of healing. You are in a safe space of being able to vocalize what you want to say to another without possible consequences that you might have in person.
Many people do this now, in their daily lives. Have you ever wanted to say something to someone and imagined them as you looked into the mirror, or perhaps spoke to them while driving in your car, having this internal dialogue with them, saying what needed to be said? That is a form of EPC. We all do it. Most people who do EPC tend to equate it with hypnotherapy, but I have been doing this work long before I became a clinical hypnotherapist. Though many traditional hypnotherapists don't define it as such, it's taken on a common practice under alchemical hypnotherapy, which happens to be the type of hypnotherapy I studied and practice.
My practice in hypnotherapy has shifted from my initial training to include deeper aspects of spirituality and shamanism enfolded into the mix. My practice in healing is a direct influence from my daily spiritual practice, my passion cultivating into spiritual rebirthing, all of which I practice in Her name.
Last night I processed through the dreamworld with EPC, and what has slowly morphed out of that has begun another layer of healing on the physical level that was needed, more relative to relationships that I haven't quite let go of in this life, but have simply left ignored, never really dealing with it.
The thing about EPC is that once this form of communication is complete, once you begin this process, there is, inevitably, a shift that not only occurs with you, but also tends to affect the relationship between you and this other person/being. What that direct shift is is individual. There are no case points to say it will be "better" or "worse" (words I choose to shift in my general vocabulary), but there is an energetic occurance that happens that is, to me, quite marvelous. It's not about bending will, nothing in the least to do with that. This is about you, YOUR healing, your perspective, your voice.
Let me be clear, the communication isn't a platform for you to spew out hate, this is about communication, it's done from the core of your spirit, releasing what needs to be released. The object isn't to be hurtful and hateful, it's to find resolution. You say what needs to be said, to their etheric self, while also being open to hearing what they, in turn, have to say. Can you come to an agreement? Do you feel at peace? Has there been a resolution made?
The thing about the inevitable shift that occurs? You must release your attachment to it being your way. We exist in a multitude of planes, thus the results of how this unfolds will also exist in these planes as well. Sometimes it's quite obvious in this waking realm, other times there is a knowing, there is healing that has occurred and it's beyond the need for us to understand it or experience it any further on this physical plane.
My approach to life is quite similar, if not entirely mirroring the way I teach and practice, in that I like things to be done in a permissive manner, and when in doubt, do my best to come from a place of loving kindness. EPC is the same way.
I think we, as a human species, have sometimes lost sight of how to communicate with others. We talk at each other, we don't tend to fully listen, and when we do listen, most of the time it's merely done with our physical ears, not "hearing" with the other senses, which is something I do focus on as an instructor.
Last night's EPC was healing. It was letting go. This morning I saw a physical shift with one of the participants, and with the other I have given myself the permission to walk away, at least for now. The release was necessary, but more importantly I was ready for it. The charge is no longer there. It's another gift in liberation.
