I love this word.
The dictionary says, “any magical power or process of transmuting a common substance, usually of little value, into a substance of great value.”
This is how I feel about my tools. If I was living in the 1600’s, I’d probably be burnt at the stake for all my lotions, potions, herbs and remedies. I am always happy when mixing up new scents and foundations for my massage and bodywork practice.
I received a massage session today. And one on Monday. Two very different modalities. Two very healing and heavenly trips to Nirvana. I totally lose myself in a session, because that is exactly what I want my clients to do. As I am getting massaged, I realize what a gift it is to be able to help someone lose themselves in space and time. What a gift it is that I am capable of doing this. The only thing better than giving that special gift to someone is having a massage myself.
The dictionary says,
“the art of producing a desired effect or result through the use of incantation or various other techniques that presumably assure human control of supernatural agencies or the forces of nature.”
The desired effect being to transport to another realm, another natural plane, just for a little while.
Massage + Alchemy = Magic.
Thank you Suzanne and Leah for reminding me of everything I already know.
