For centuries, healers have connected with the divine power of “Universal Life Force Energy” (the energy that flows within all living things) through loving gentle touch to aid the ill. Widely popular in the east and rediscovered by western doctors, today’s modern medicine men, energy medicine is currently being used in hospitals throughout the world. While the names of varying modalities may differ, the basic concepts and origins are consistent. All energy healing comes from Source, Divinity, the All.
Hands on healing is a powerful complementary healing tool. It is my passion, privilege and honor to share this beautiful work with others. I was first introduced to energy healing through the ancient tradition of Reiki. In my practice, I blend Reiki with the art of Healing Touch and CranioSacral Therapy as well as other sacred systems.
Every one has the ability to access Life Force Energy and pass it on to others. Learning to access Divinity for healing is like anything in life – if we apply ourselves to art, we learn to draw; if we apply ourselves to music, we learn to play; if we apply ourselves to sports, we become athletic; if we apply ourselves to learning, we become knowledgeable.
With energy healing, the provider allows Universal Life Force Energy to flow through to the recipient restoring balance to the body, mind and spirit. I invite you to explore this blessed approach to creating harmony in your life.
Dating back to 4000 B.C. in Egypt, the concept of energy healing works on the premise of an energy system within our bodies, specifically the energy field (aura), energy centers (chakras) and energy tracts (meridians):
The aura has four levels of energy or consciousness – the etheric, emotional, mental and spiritual, which in itself contains another four layers.
The chakras serve as master switches of energy movement; there are seven major chakras and several minor chakras dispersed throughout the body. The main chakras are root (base), sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, brow (third eye) and crown.
Meridians are lines of force where the life essence travels through the entire interior of the body. The meridians are commonly used in shiatsu, acupressure, acupuncture and other holistic therapies.
Universal Life Force Energy is directed through the practitioner to the recipient to be received where it is most critically needed. Similar to a doctor resetting a bone to facilitate healing, a practitioner aligns and balances the energy field facilitating a condition of the recipient to self heal. As with all energy healing, a heart centered consciousness is the basis for treatment.
Just as in writing there is a literal truth and a poetic truth, in the human body there is a physical anatomy and an ethereal anatomy. Sometimes referred to as bio-field therapy, energy healing relaxes the body which releases endorphins in the brain, the endorphins relax the muscles which in turn create more space between cells providing increased circulation. The increase in blood flow elevates oxygen levels through the body allowing nutrients to be absorbed more efficiently and building enzymes for proper digestion. The hormones stabilize, toxins release and the immune system is regulated affecting the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual facets of the body’s energy field supporting self healing. These demonstrative changes are measurable and tangible.
The energy system is influenced by the environment, thought, emotions and actions. Potential illness may appear in the energy system before physical signs manifest. Balancing the energy system is both preventive and curative.
In western medicine, the human energy system has long been recognized. Modern technology has developed many different types of equipment over the decades to access the energy system for healing. This is how the concept of a PaceMaker works. Likewise, paramedics will often rely on an electrical instrument called an Automated External Defibrillator or AED to restore the electrical system and restart the heart by shocking it back in to action. More energy based mechanisms are on the rise such as ElectroSurgical Units (ESUs) as an alternative to cutting. ESUs manipulate the electrical wavelengths of the energy system to affect tissue. While the field of energy medicine continues to expand, the value of hands on healing is unmatched. Worldwide, scientists agree that the human component of heart centered consciousness adds a dimension incomparable to machines alone. With proven results, many hospitals across the globe offer energy healing as part of their standard protocol and in many facilities support training programs for their staff.
