The following case-study about how to deal with emotional bullying demonstrates what can be achieved by practicing the simple self-help practice higher-consciousness healing.

Charlotte (55 years) came to see me because she was stressed in her job as a teacher in a deprived school where she was experiencing constant emotional bullying from her students. Charlotte felt so bad about this that she wanted to leave her job but she was worried about the loss of earnings. Charlotte also felt deeply hurt that her husband had been emotionally abusive as well and had left her five years earlier for another woman.

Charlotte felt excited about receiving a healing-symbol and her first symbol was geared at overcoming the stress caused by the emotional bullying of her students and she received a golden star. I showed her how she should send the golden light of her star to herself, see herself in a golden bubble, and send the golden light to her rebellious pupils – with love.

Charlotte practised in this way and when she came back after two weeks she reported that the abusive behaviour of her pupils didn’t get to her as much as it had in the past. She also had had a very constructive discussion with the head of her department and had been given a much easier class. Charlotte realised that this was an entirely new experience for her because in the past she would have simply ‘run away’ in anger. Now she was surprised and delighted that someone had actually listened to her problems and helped her.

I then taught Charlotte how to see her difficult students in bubbles of love and imagine that they would be much easier if they were happier. Charlotte caught on to this practice immediately and experienced a wonderful sense of peace.

In the following two weeks Charlotte frequently visualized the bubbles of love and when she came back she felt very happy while her suffering at her work place had decreased from eight out of ten to zero.

The next step was helping Charlotte over the resentment that she still harboured against her bullying ex-husband. I explained to her that this negative feeling kept her tied to her ex-husband and would be a major obstacle to finding a new partner. That made sense to Charlotte and she received a healing-symbol to get over her hurt and resentment. I instructed her how to breathe the colour of her symbol to herself, to her ex-husband and to his new wife with love. After years of bitterness and resentment Charlotte managed to do this without any further difficulty.

When Charlotte came back after two weeks she felt that her negative feelings towards her former husband had virtually vanished. Instead, she felt excited by the thought of finding a new partner herself. This was a new and positive development because Charlotte had not wanted a new partner when she first came to see me. But now she had liberated herself from the destructive effects of her own anger and was ready to find happiness with a new partner.

After only two months Charlotte had changed from a victimized, resentful and depressed person into someone who was looking at life with optimism and much more happiness.
