What is energy healing? It’s the practice of using the body’s energy to remove blockages to allow the body to heal itself.
Everybody wants to be healthier and feel better, and some of us are willing to try anything. But, have you heard of “energy healing?”
Energy healing is the basis of many ancient medical and mystic techniques in the Indian and Pacific regions. It’s easy to get into and hard to master.
The Basics of Energy healing
Energy healing is based on the idea that the human body is, in a sense, powered and sustained by energy. This energy has different names in different traditions, but most readers today might best understand it as the soul, or as “life.”
This energy concentrates in certain parts of the body, usually called “chakras.” Most of the major chakras are lined up from the top of the head to the bottom of the pelvic region, but there are also more minor chakras spread throughout the body, usually at the sites of joints. Energy flows between these chakras along various channels.
All energy healing works on the basic idea that if energy is allowed to concentrate on one area, or if it doesn’t flow appropriately along the predefined channels, the human mind and body can be affected. Where the major schools of energy healing differ is in how they approach this energy.
Chakras and Acupuncture
The concept of chakras and the related concepts of acupuncture are at least vaguely familiar to most people, and so they make a good place to start.
The basics of these studies come from the religious texts of ancient Indian civilizations. As mentioned above, they involve the concept of energy centers and channels that circulate energy throughout the body. Each of the chakras is associated with a different emotion or trait set.
None of the tendencies or traits are bad on their own, but if energy is not circulating between the chakras the way that it should be, it can result in a surfeit or deficit of otherwise healthy emotions or traits. This can lead to mental health or even physical health problems. These can be cured by redirecting the energies back to their proper distributions and courses.
If an individual is healthy enough and aware enough to notice their problems, they can often attempt to realign their energies through meditations. If their condition is too advanced, they may visit a practitioner who uses acupuncture. Needles are then placed at intersections of energy channels to realign the flow of energy and relieve symptoms.
Ideally, however, the individual will maintain healthy energy flows by maintaining a healthy and balanced lifestyle including regular meditation and physical activity.
Despite being an ancient “pseudo-science,” acupuncture has never been discredited, though it has also never been explained to the satisfaction of “western” science.
As a result, it is somewhat widely available and may even be diagnosed to deal with symptoms like chronic pain. Similarly, ancient practices to maintain the energies, like yoga and tai chi, are gaining popularity around the world and have been found to have certifiable benefits to emotional and physical health.
The Ancient Art of Reiki
Another form of energy healing, called “Reiki” starts from a similar place of understanding but moves in a slightly different direction.
Reiki practitioners believe that energy concentrates in chakras and that that energy must freely flow through the appropriate channels. They believe, however, that the energies flowing through different people can interact with one another.
As a result, a person who understands the energy and has healthy energy themselves can then manipulate the energies of unhealthy people to restore them to health.
Reiki practitioners do not enjoy the popularity or respect of acupuncture therapists in most parts of the world, though they can be found and some people do stand by their ability to heal. Whether or not you believe in the more spiritual aspect of Reiki, some credit it as being one of the precursors to modern chiropractic medicine.
The final form of energy healing that we will discuss today has to do with crystals. It is probably a later development in the long history of energy healing, as crystals were more important mystical artifacts to Western Europeans than to other cultures. However, crystals have along the way collected much of the basic understanding of healing that comes from the Indo-Asiatic traditions.
Crystals are believed by many to generate, absorb, and otherwise conduct energy. By holding a crystal near an energy center, or by moving the crystal between energy centers, the energy of the body can be redistributed or realigned.
Healing with crystals has less medical or scientific backing than acupuncture, or even reiki, and remains very much an occult practice.
That doesn’t mean that there isn’t a wealth of information on the practice available in bookshops or online. Many communities of even modest size also have shops where crystals can be purchased specifically for energy healing, should anyone be interested in giving it a go.
Be careful, however, as many “crystals” sold in more careless shops and online are actually plastic or glass and the wise healer will quickly learn to tell the difference and establish trustworthy sellers.
10 Ways Energy Healing Can Serve You
Typically, therapy (of any kind) is designed to help you identify your wounds. Once you find those wounds you can begin the healing process. Unfortunately, for many people, there is no blueprint that shows you how to go about healing those wounds.
What can help you heal old wounds, though, is energy healing. The idea of energy healing is often met with skepticism, though many are also curious about it. We want to address both your curiosity on the subject, as well as your skepticism.
Ancient cultures have been studying the body’s energy since the beginning of time. Reiki is a Japanese practice that can be traced back to the early 20th century. Hindu texts describe our chakras and in traditional Chinese Medicine, meridians are the focus of acupuncture. The point is, all of these cultures recognized the importance of the body’s energy.
To show you exactly what that means in practice, let’s take a look at
10 Ways You Can Benefit From Energy Healing.
1. Better Digestion
One of the greatest benefits of energy healing is how it influences your cells. Ultimately, if your cells are happy, then your organs and digestive tract will operate optimally. That’s good news for your whole body.
Just think about the issues that come with poor digestion – you may have bowel issues such as constipation or deal with indigestion and heartburn. We underestimate just how important our digestive tract is to our overall health and wellness. Constipation leads to mood swings and headaches, while heartburn can impact your ability to sleep at night.
2. The Law of Attraction
It’s all about making yourself a manifestation magnet. When you achieve balanced energy, your soul will be fully aligned with yourself. This healing opens you up to attract the good in the world and repel everything else. Energy healing is the key to the law of attraction. If your mindset and experiences attract the same back… then it’s vital that your energy is positive, otherwise, you are unknowingly attracting negative energy and events into your life.
3. Improved Intuition
Every one of us has built-in intuition. How connected we are to it is an entirely different story. When you talk about your instincts or your gut talking to you, it’s your intuition. Self-awareness is the key to hearing and understanding the inner voice that is guiding you. Energy healing will help you do that, as well as create an open mind and allow you to get in touch with your intuition on a deeper level.
4. Weight Loss
When your body functions properly maintaining your weight is a cinch. This is because your body naturally releases toxins, but when you have blockages… it isn’t as simple as that. Energy healing can purge those blockages to clear trapped feelings and emotions that drive your cravings. Clear those blockages and you will avoid overeating. It’s easy to understand why you’re carrying extra baggage when you experience blockage clearance through energy healing.
5. Pain Relief
Energy healing practitioners work with your body’s energy to clear residual tension. The energy at the core of your body will shift and release all of those tensions and blockages, thus relieving your pain. You might just be surprised by how many blockages and how much tension you have stored in the tendons, muscles, and joints of your body. Energy healing is one of the most effective ways to purge that tension and restore your body to balanced bliss.
6. Stress Management
Energy healing isn’t just about dealing with stressful situations, it’s also about attracting fewer stressful situations. The stress isn’t just the situation itself, it’s how you react to it. The way you deal with a situation has more to do with unresolved feelings from your past.
Any type of situation where you were left feeling powerless, unloved, worthless or shamed can become lodged in your cells’ memory. While not every trauma will stick with you, the ones that do will influence your future experiences. Energy healing will clear that memory, it’s like a hard reset.
7. Improved Self-Care
People tend to take a bit better care of themselves when there is good energy flowing through their body. That’s what you get when you use energy healing. You feel good about yourself, you feel good about your wants and needs. More importantly, you feel empowered. It’s that empowerment that leads you to practice self-care properly, with smarter diet choices, exercise, and overall respect for yourself.
8. Improved Relationships
It might not be something that you are aware of, but we allow our past to cloud how we interpret the actions and words of others. It might be a previous relationship that has made you wary or, it could be childhood experiences.
For example, you fight with your partner about things a previous partner did. When they do certain things, you immediately go back to the hurt from that previous relationship. You struggle to gel with your boss because your boss is too similar to your parents. When your boss offers a critique, it feels as though that parent is hurting you all over again. Energy healing releases all of that.
9. Improved Productivity & Creativity
Where does creativity truly come from? It isn’t your mind, your mind is just the tool where inspiration is received, interpreted, and put into action.
Creativity comes from believing that you are worthy. You first have to understand and truly believe that you are capable. You need to be free to create and you need to believe that your creativity is important. Important enough for you to give it the attention and time it requires to come to fruition. Even though other people will want your attention and time.
Energy healing will release any feelings of unworthiness or judgment and allow you to produce on your creativity.
This one should come as no surprise. With all of the benefits listed above, happiness is inevitable. It will be your default. You will likely notice that your outlook is more positive and that you are quick to smile.
You can now manage your stress more effectively, you are more creative and productive than ever before, your relationships are improving, and you are truly taking care of yourself. Of course, you’re going to be happier! Additionally, things tend to come more easily to you because you expect them to. This is enlightenment.
Not everybody believes in energy healing. However, it’s not at all dangerous – provided you don’t let just anybody stick you with pins. So, good luck with your entrance into the fascinating and arcane world of energy healing!
