How does Energy Healing work?
Everything in the universe is made of energy, we humans included. Each of us obviously have a physical body with a mind and emotions, but we are made of even more than that. Passed down to us from many ancient healing and spiritual traditions, is the awareness that we also have an invisible energy system through which universal life force energy circulates. This energy flows through channels called chakras and meridians, and throughout the energetic field, called the aura. Similar to the way unobstructed blood flow is necessary for the health of the body, disruptions in the flow of energy can cause issues on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. This can, in turn, cause problems on other tiers, such as with finances or relationships.
Energy healing works to release energy blockages in order to restore and enhance the normal, healthy flow of energy. This facilitates the body’s natural healing process and one’s ability to move forward in life with clarity and confidence.
As energy is not subject to the physical constraints of time and space, energy healing works just as effectively at a distance as it does in person. I have included a list of contemporary books and articles about this concept on the Reading page.
What causes imbalances in the energy system?
Energetic imbalances can take many different forms. The Body Code identifies six main categories of disruption. They are:
- Energetic: the mental and emotional level, including the trapping of negative emotions, which can also cause or contribute to problems in the other categories.
- Circuits and Systems: refers to the function of organs and organ systems, glands, chakras and meridians.
- Toxicity: the presence of heavy metals, free radicals, chemicals dental toxins, drugs, food additives, biological poisons and EMF radiation.
- Pathogens: molds, viruses, bacteria fungus, biofilm, prions and parasites.
- Misalignments: imbalances of the bones, connective tissue, nerves and organs.
- Nutrition & Lifestyle: nutrients, food, hydration, sleep and related issues.
Issues in any aspect of life may be connected to imbalances in one or more of these areas at its core.
Included in the Energetic category is the Heart Wall, which was discovered by Dr. Bradley Nelson. He describes the Heart Wall as a mass of emotional energy that the subconscious mind constructs around the heart as a protective barrier after experiencing deep hurt, grief, loss or heartache. Releasing the Heart Wall can be one of the most important steps you can take for your overall health and well being.
How can a trapped emotion cause discomfort and problems?
A trapped emotion is an invisible ball of negative energy. It vibrates at the same frequency as that emotion. It can lodge somewhere in the physical body, causing the tissues in that area to resonate at the same negative vibrational frequency. This creates a blockage in the energy pathways. The disruption in the normal flow of energy can result in discomfort and distress in any area, on any level.
How can the source of an issue be identified?
With your permission, I can connect with your energy field and stand in as your proxy. Then, using a series of “Mind Maps” from The Body Code, intuitive questioning and kinesiology, I can identify areas of blockages, and release them as I go along. There may be just a few layers or many, depending on the individual.
What happens during a session?
Once I’ve connected with your energetic field, I will begin your session by doing a technique to help you more easily receive the energy work. Then, using The Body Code, I will test to see what to address in order of priority as to be most helpful to you for that session. I release each blockage as it is identified, and make note of everything I do. Sessions last between 30- 45 minutes, as long as testing indicates that I should continue. I end the session with a technique to help you integrate the energy work, then I disconnect from your energy field. I will send you an email with all notes by the end of the day of the session.
As I work remotely and by proxy, you do not need to do anything special at the time of the session. Just be sure to hydrate well on that day and for a couple of days afterwards to help process the energy releases and rebalancing.
How long will it take for me to be free of my issue?
That is entirely up to your inner wisdom, your body, and the universal healing energy. Sometimes there may be an instantaneous resolution of an issue. As with any healing modality, progress may be noticed over the course of multiple sessions. Once the energetic blockages are released, your own natural restorative abilities can operate more smoothly. Just as the problem wasn’t created overnight, resolving it often takes some time and attention.
In fact, it is our lack of attention (consciousness) which may prompt the manifestation of a problem in order to force us to acknowledge that there is something in our life that we need to change. Discomfort may be likened to a “check engine light”, nudging us to give conscious attention to something we need to deal with. The longer we ignore this, the little nudges may increase in severity until we have no choice but to stop and take notice. If we recognize these nudges as symptoms of a deeper issue that deserves attention, we can properly address it and move forward gracefully.
The beauty of this particular energy modality is that it can easily identify underlying issues to bring to your attention. It removes energetic blockages at the root of the issue so that your body, mind and spirit can more easily and completely recover, and opens the way for you to take necessary action steps. Often, clients note improvements in areas they hadn’t realized had any connection to the problem which originally prompted them to book their sessions.
What should I do after my session?
It can take a couple of days for you to fully process the releases done during your session. How each person responds is very individual and can even vary from session to session, depending on what was released. Sometimes clients notice an immediate lessening of severity of their issue or report feeling lighter and less troubled. You may feel a bit tired, moody or “off” for a day or two afterwards. I encourage you to listen to your body and give it the rest it needs as you integrate the energy and rebalance. And please drink plenty of water.
It is important for you to read over and contemplate your session notes. The notes are essentially a letter from your inner self to your conscious self, and can include much valuable information, and with that is the opportunity for growth. Feedback you provide can help me to fine-tune the focus of your next session, and may enhance the quality and effectiveness of it considerably.
It is also important for you to let me know how you’re feeling in the days after each session so I can help you with processing if necessary.
Can children benefit from Energy Healing?
Yes. As with adults, energy healing may be helpful to children for various issues. Children are emotional sponges, and trapped emotions may affect them widely and deeply. Clearing a child’s Heart Wall can be very beneficial and can prevent negative issues from becoming life-long patterns.
Parents and guardians can schedule sessions for children age 17 and under. Children over age 17 need to give their consent to have energy healing done for them, unless they are not capable of doing so.
Can Energy Healing be used for pets?
Yes. Animals experience emotions just as humans do, and trapped emotions can have profound effects on their well being and behavior. Frequently, rescue animals suffer from trauma and upheaval, but they are unable ask for help to overcome it. Pets also absorb negative emotions from their owners. With energy healing, it can be possible to identify and release these issues, easing the animals’ distress and allowing them the chance to heal and adjust. It is very rewarding to help animals in this way. Typically, animals have fewer underlying issues than humans, and clearing progresses more quickly.
