What is Energy Healing and Is It Right for You?
How are you feeling on this fine morning? Did you wake up with a lot of energy or a little energy? While you may assume that the quality of sleep you get determines how much energy you have in your body. The reality is, your body is all energy, and healing that energy means healing your body.
“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”
― Nikola Tesla
Nikola Tesla, a man I greatly admire, knew the truth: physical reality does not exist. Our “physical” senses make us believe that the world around us, including our own body, is a material world. But the TRUTH is, everything is energy vibrating at a different frequency. The rate of vibration determines how “solid” things seem. But nothing is solid – everything is, in fact, energy.
Once you understand what science tells us about our “physical” world, you begin to understand that the people who talk about “energy healing” are not a bunch of nut jobs!!! If I had a nickel for the number of weird looks and eye rolls I have received over the years when I mentioned “energy healing” to someone, I would have enough money to live very well for several lifetimes!
Of course, these days I don’t get the looks I once used to, and I am so grateful for that. I am so grateful that people are starting to understand a very basic and important principle: Your energetic body creates your “physical” body, therefore the condition of your energetic body determines the condition of your “physical” body.
I have known of people who were able to read a person’s energetic body and see something amiss. They would ask a person, “Do you have something going on in your abdomen area?” Because they would see or sense a disturbance there. The person would often say, “No, nothing seems wrong in that area.” Then weeks later find themselves at the doctor because of pain found in the exact location!
What is Energy Healing Exactly?
There is an energy field within and around your body. The Chinese call this energy “qi.” If you’ve studied martial arts or have had acupuncture you have probably heard of this term before.
Some people call this energy field your aura. The person I mentioned earlier who could see things wrong in someone’s energy field saw that person’s aura and could tell things were wrong by the colors. Some people may even refer to this energy field as the chakras.
Regardless of what this energy field is called, it determines the health of your body.
Now this energy field can become corrupt through a number of ways:
- From the negative energy of others. Just as you can become “physically” sick by catching a cold or flu virus, you can become energetically sick by catching someone’s negative energy. This is particularly true if you are in constant contact with this other person’s negative energy field.
- Electromagnetic fields. We are surrounded by electronic devices that are throwing off harmful fields that can mess with our own.
- Traumatic events often lodge in our energetic fields and cause disease. I believe this is what happened after my father was tragically killed by a drunk teenage driver. Months later, I was diagnosed with cancer. NOT a coincidence.
- And bad daily lifestyle choices such as smoking, drinking too much, doing drugs, eating garbage… these can all weaken our energetic field.
The good news is, energy fields can be healed.
And science is now proving this. There are many special types of equipment that have been used in experiments to show that 1) our energy field is real and 2) it can be manipulated.
In fact, many hospitals are now using energy healing modalities such as Reiki, because Reiki has been shown to be effective at treating pain and help with symptoms of Alzheimer’s.
Without question, energy healing is a simple and practical way to clear, balance and restore energy and this is the greatest path to true healing.
Who Can Benefit from Energy Healing?
Absolutely anyone can and will benefit from energy healing. You don’t need to understand or grasp the concept 100% to gain the benefits. I also want to mention that energy healing is a complementary modality that can be used in conjunction with any traditional therapies you may currently be undergoing. That’s why so many big hospitals are now using energy healing.
How Do You Find the Right Energy Healer?
If you are new to energy healing you may be wondering how you can begin. While it is possible to heal your own energy field, it is usually advised that you work with a trained energy healer in the beginning.
To find someone to work with you may want to ask a friend or family member who is knowledgeable about alternative medicine for a referral. If you don’t know anyone personally, you could drop in at your local yoga studio, chiropractor’s office, Acupuncturist or martial arts studio and inquire if they can refer you to anyone.
All you need to begin your energy healing journey is an open mind and a willingness to learn.
Sending you love and healing light.
