What Is Energy Healing?

Our bodies are connected to the energy of the Universe.

Our bodies are like rechargeable batteries using the Earth and the Universe to recharge. The Earth helps us to heal and gives us everything we need to survive, and works with the Universe to connect to a spiritual energy that keeps our bodies moving on a daily basis. We have a constant flow of energy from our feet to our minds.

Energetic Healers believe that with this flow of energy, the body can heal itself naturally. We are all made up of flesh, blood and bones. But the physical body is just the beginning of the story. Thousands of years ago Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) introduced the ancients to the meridian system and the energy chakra vortexes. Modern science and physics (in the last 100 years) reassures us that everything is made up of energy. Medical practitioners are also recognizing the benefits of energy healing. According to a 2007 survey, 800 hospitals in the United States have begun to use Reiki, a popular form of energy healing. When unblocked, energy fields make it easier to focus and maintain a positive outlook, which will encourage the body to restore itself naturally. There is comfort and validation in knowing that the ancients and modern science are both right.

Humans are, at the core, actually vibrating in unique electromagnetic waves. All physical health problems, emotional disturbances, and financial issues are related to energy blocks or imbalances. The majority of people are experiencing major stressors in life due to a demanding, hectic lifestyle. This causes disruptions in the body and can lead to physical problems like insomnia and mood swings. More people are beginning to understand that they see positive changes by focusing on the healing of the body's energy.

Natural healers believe that all health issues start on an energetic level with a stressor which can block this flow of energy. Emotional and mental stresses are huge blocks to our own personal growth and development. This block can work its way into the body and causes a disturbance, which can lead to major health issues. It’s our job as humans to take care of our energetic bodies as well as our physical bodies to make sure this doesn’t happen. With the help of energy healing, these energy levels can be cleared, allowing us to reach our full potential to lead a happier, healthier life with more positivity and strength.

The mind is a powerful thing and thoughts are directly connected to the energetic body and the physical body. One way to clear these energetic blockages is to let go of all past traumas and negative relationships. If you hold on to all of your negative experiences in life, then your body will respond in a negative way. So it’s best to take each day as it comes, work through all of your emotions, and know you are a new you each day you wake up. By keeping your mind in balance, your body will follow.

One of the biggest benefits of natural healing is that it gives everyone the ability to improve themselves and lead a better life. When you are spiritually balanced, you are better able to stay positive and see life from a different point of view. This positive outlook wards off depression and allows the body to relax and maintain harmony, addressing potential problems before they develop into energetic blockages.

Another way to remove these blockages is to work with a Reiki practitioner, who will channel the energy of the Universe and pass it along to you. Reiki energy goes where the body needs it most, and it can take several treatments to get back to your right energy flow. We’ll explain how this works and what you can expect from a treatment session in this guide. Meditation is also good to learn to sense your blocks in energy, cleanse your aura, and remove the blocks yourself. A healer can also sense these energy roadblocks remotely and help you learn to clear them.

Speaking of your aura, trained energy healers are able to see auras and interpret their colors. We’ll break it down for you and relate this to the health of your chakras. Open and aligned chakras can make a world of difference. Crystal healing can amplify the positive energy, stimulate the energy flow, and even repel negative energy. We’ll introduce you to a variety of healing crystals and their properties.

Getting an Energy Healing

Energy healing is a type of therapy that manipulates our physical energy circuits to help facilitate our body's healing mechanisms. This holistic approach is excellent for assisting in the healing process by unblocking our energy fields and helps to ward off future problems by identifying issues before they turn into pain in our physical body. By addressing the energy of your body, you will promote better health and greater clarity.

Aura cleansing, chakra balancing, crystal healing and Reiki are just a few ways to promote energy healing and keep up an inner balance. While not a substitute for advice from a personal physician for the physical body, these methods help you make a faster, easier recovery by getting you in touch with the spiritual body. One should always consult their physician for any physical ailments. These pain-free practices work by rebalancing the body's energy and clearing the energy fields. By working directly with the energy, this influences everything from mental, spiritual, to physical well-being.

Energy healing is not regulated by law. It does not require state or federal licensing or any type of universal licensing. However, many energy healers do have professional certifications and have been trained in specific types of healing.

Many energy therapists and healers have a background in alternative or complementary medicine. Massage therapists, nurses, social workers, and counselors often find themselves drawn to the energy work professions. It’s not surprising that many energy workers may also be licensed medical practitioners.

If you are interested in using a holistic energy healer you should ask what methods and modalities that the practitioner uses, and if they have any certifications or professional credentials. It’s a good idea to find out exactly what the session entails. The trust and comfort factor is especially important in distance healing, as well as in-person sessions.

Distance Healing

Because our energy doesn’t end at the surface of the skin or even at the edge of the aura that surrounds us, energy work can be done from a distance. All energy healing work requires that the healer has an enhanced state of awareness, as well as the ability to focus and direct energy. Since energy is not bound by physical objects, physical distance is not a roadblock for the healer.

Healing interaction is not limited by distance or even time, but it is necessary that a strong connection exist between the healer and the person who needs to be healed. Energy in the form of electromagnetic bio-photons is constantly communicating by sending and receiving information from the body. Healers (natural and developed intuitives) of all types have a heightened awareness of, and a focused connection on those they try to help.

An energy healer can sense the presence of imbalance and dis-ease in order to promote healing. Distance healing has a variety of modalities that can be done remotely. Perhaps the best known is Reiki. But there is also Qi Gong, chakra healing, aura cleansing, crystal healing, Pranic, and Shamanic, as well as hybrid types of energy work like light therapy, sound healing and magnetic therapy. All distance healing therapies require the healer to receive health and body information and send clear positive healing energy.

How Can You Learn Energy Healing Techniques?

In ancient times, energy healers passed down their knowledge. Healers learned through an apprenticeship. Experienced and trained healers still often teach these skills to students.

Many people in the helping/medical professions are attracted to energy healing. But being in the helping professions or having a medical background is not a requirement to become an energy healer.

If you find yourself interested in becoming an energy healer, start with research. Find out about the different types of energy healing. Read, attend lectures, and ask other energy healers for direction.

There are a variety of energy healing courses available both online and at alternative medicine schools and institutions.

You may be able to find someone locally that is an experienced professional who offers training. Or you could speak to an online energy healer for guidance and direction on how to begin your journey.

Trying simple meditations is a step in the right direction. Most energy healing work will require that you be able to meditate and focus energy. The understanding that we are all made up of vibrational energy and energy is alive around us is vital. The best research of all may be to have a healing energy session for yourself.

When there is a disturbance in our bodies—whether it be an illness, stress, or something else—our immune systems get weakened. When we address the energy fields of our body and clear them, we are able to support a natural balance that strengthens our immune system. With holistic healing there is improved concentration, better sleeping patterns, and better healing capacity.
