What is Energetic Healing?

You may also wish to visit our Testimonials page to see what others have to say about their Energetic Healing sessions.

We can view Energetic Healing from both a scientific viewpoint and from an esoteric viewpoint:

The Scientific Viewpoint
Everything in the universe is energy.  Matter, light, heat, gravity, and electricity are just a few forms of energy with which we are familiar.  Advances in Theoretical Physics have shown that matter particles and light photons are really just energy vibrating at different frequencies. Thus, modern physics now agrees with the ancient teachings that what we think of as solid matter is really energy in constant motion. Different cultures have used different names for this natural energy of the universe: chi, qi, spirit, life force, prana, and Holy Spirit are just a few.

The Esoteric Viewpoint
Our bodies are composed of various systems. We all know about the nervous system, digestive system, circulatory system, etc., however our bodies also have a subtle energy system through which our energy or life force flows. This universal life force energy (the energy of God) surrounds the human body and is the animating force that gives and sustains all life.  In order to maintain a healthy body, we want to have a good flow of this energy coming into the body, as well as going out.

The Human Energy Field or Aura is an energetic, multidimensional field that surrounds, penetrates, and makes up the human body. It has rivers of energy called meridians that nourish every organ and cell in our body. These rivers are supplied by vortexes of energy called chakras. Chakras connect the spiritual body to the physical one. They regulate the flow of energy in the electrical network that runs through the physical body. The body’s electrical system resembles the wiring in a house. It allows electrical current to be sent to every part, and this current is ready for use when needed. 

The chakras collect energy from the Universal Life Force and Energy Field that is all around us. As we journey through our lives, the flow of energy can become restricted or limited. These restrictions are commonly referred to as energy blockages.  Some causes of energy blockages are: physical trauma, surgery, disease, exhaustion, starvation, emotional crisis, suppressed feelings, stress, fear and self-limiting thoughts.  When blocks accumulate in the chakras, the flow of energy is disrupted, which may eventually cause dis-ease as well as emotional and mental disorders in the physical body.  Energetic healing allows for the clearing of blockages in the chakra and meridian systems, bringing about a new level of awareness and restored physical, emotional and spiritual health.

The knowledge that energy flows through all living things and is connected directly to the quality of health has been part of the wisdom of many cultures since ancient times.  It is also important to understand that the human body is made up of significantly more energy than it is of matter.  Therefore, the energy in the human body is a more powerful and important component than its physical structure.  Essentially, this philosophy supports the idea that all physical imbalances begin in the body’s energetic field. When the energy system is healed, wellness of the physical body can follow.

Energetic Healing
Energetic Healing is a gentle yet powerful holistic method of balancing & restoring health to the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies.  In the healing process, our bodies know how to heal.  When we experience a lack of health, we have somehow disconnected from a part of ourselves that needs to be acknowledged and allowed to reintegrate into the whole that constitutes health. 

Pain is always a message. 

When we become aware of pain, we can gently release energetic blocks and tensions that prevent the natural flow of health.  We then learn to trust our own healing. As Energetic Healing involves directing the natural flow of universal energy, it can be likened to recharging a battery.  When a battery’s energy supply is low, it doesn’t function well.  By introducing a charge to it, it can once again run on its own.  Energetic Healing works much the same way.  If you are suffering from an illness (physical, mental or spiritual), your energy supply is lessened.  Energetic Healing works to assist you in bringing your energy level back up to its natural flow, thereby enhancing your own natural healing powers.  The Energetic Healing practitioner does not suffer from a depletion in energy, as he or she is trained to channel energy from the Universal Life Force, not from any personal supply.

It is also interesting to note that our energy is responsive to thoughts and feelings.  It becomes disrupted when we accept, either consciously or unconsciously, negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves.  These negative thoughts and feelings attach themselves to the energy field and cause a disruption in the flow of the life force. This diminishes the vital function of the organs and cells of the physical body.  Thoughts feed our cells just as the nutrients in foods sustain our bodies.

Helping people realize that healing the body, mind and spirit starts with consciously deciding to improve oneself is a necessary part of the Energetic Healing experience. Overall, healing is a choice. In order for the healing energies to have lasting results, the client must accept responsibility for his or her healing and take an active part in it.  This means consciously releasing limiting feelings (self doubts, low self-esteem, fears, etc.), trading any past hurts for the healing power of forgiveness, and surrendering pain, anxiety, stress, struggle and sorrow to a higher power.

There is an important principle governing subtle energies that states: “Energy follows awareness.”  This is a very useful principle, since it means that we can move and direct healing energies with the conscious awareness of our minds. We can mentally direct subtle energies to flow to various parts of our bodies.  This is the basis for many forms of healing and advanced meditation practices.

This empowering knowledge of our energy system can transform our relationship to health. Recognizing the body’s energetic component, understanding how emotional blockages affect our energy fields and enacting the tools we have for releasing such blockages can lead to optimum mental, physical, and spiritual health and growth.

The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well.
