What Is Energy Healing?
Energy Healing, also known as Energy Medicine, is a collection of modalities under complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Energy healing is one of five CAM domains as defined by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) in the United States.
Most of the energy healing that people think of is a type known as biofield energy healing. This category of healing involves pretty much any modality that utilizes universal life-force energy (also called healing energy). Some modalities that fall into this area are Reiki, Quantum-Touch, QiGong, Therapeutic Touch and Healing Touch.
People often ask me, “what form of Energy Healing do you do”? My only answer is this: “You can’t put God in a box”. I intentionally give myself over to Spirit, Divine Mind, God, Universal Love: whatever one calls it. By becoming a conduit and not being intellectually or personally involved, the purist of Energy can flow through me. I go into an altered state, so to speak. In fact, much of what is said through me, I don’t even remember. I had a client come up to me a week after her session and start talking about the relationship that since had shifted…I did not remember what was said. Spirit has told me that the less my personality and Ego are involved, the clearer the channel. Parts of each session remain with me as lessons, new information that is meant for me in addition to the client.
I always grow and expand from every session. Issues, concerns, blocks, are just as much a part of the whole, we are all connected. Some form of learning/expanding occurs for not just myself and the client, but for the collective consciousness also.
The Science of Energy Medicine
Our bodies generate patterns of electromagnetic fields of energy and information that are extraordinarily more complex than the most sophisticated man-made satellites in the sky. We are not only, so to speak, walking antennas and satellite dishes; we are walking generators and satellite transmitters as well. Physics tells us that everything has energy. Our bodies are also teeming with energies and frequencies. Humans can detect apparent energy fields emitted by the human hand.
If we go into Quantum Physics, we find that the concept of Energy gets to be quite complicated. Einstein shows us that E=MC², Energy equals Mass times the speed of Light squared. The most important consequence of this is that Mass is nothing but a form of Energy….so everything is a form of Energy. Our voice emits sound vibrations and our brains release wavelengths of Energy.
We are made up of a multi-body system, not just the physical body. We have an Etheric Body, an Emotional Body, a Mental Body and an Astral Body. We are affected on all levels by thoughts, experiences, conditioning, beliefs, and images to name a few.
We store energy patterns in our bodies in centers we call Chakras. Some of what we store may be happy memories, or unpleasant and painful. Dis-ease is a manifestation of unbalanced Energy. Healing, then is a way of balancing Energy.
The basic substance of a person is Energy. The movement of that Energy is life. Our bodies are not solid. Under 500,000 times magnification, skin would look like stars spread far apart in the sky. The living Energy is consciousness, the intelligence and harmony of creations. Every minute particle of life knows exactly what it is doing, it has a mind.
There are many causes of Energy Blocks such as our thoughts consisting of fear, doubt, anger, worry, judgment, criticism, blame, control, negative beliefs, and pain are just a few. Love and Compassion are the primary STATES OF BEING that release energy blocks.
Once you consider everything as energy, the idea of keeping its pathway’s clear is easier to tackle. Terms like writer’s block, blocked legislation, a blocked up river, or blocking pass in football, all show how things get interrupted or thrown off course. Our individual energy blocks take the form of tension in our bodies, fear and worry, inability to focus, or the total shut down of depression. Severe blockages can even threaten our lives. And sometimes, asking how to clear your energy blocks means wondering how to get out of your own way.
Get your Energy moving and in the flow; exercise and movement such as Tai Chi, meditation, releasing and letting go of negative thoughts, deep breathing, connect with nature, SEE AN ENERGY HEALER.
