What is Energy Healing & what can it do for you?
Energy healing is a holistic practice that includes the subtle energies of your body, your space, and the land. Everything in the universe is made up of vibration and therefore everything vibrates, even you, your pets, and the chair you are sitting on now. Energy Healing is a way of guiding energy throughout the body to promote someone’s self-healing abilities.
Our physical bodies are intertwined with our energetic body. Therefore, it is no surprise that all the traumas we carry physically, emotionally and psychologically impact our energy centers (chakras) and vice versa. In order to maintain vitality, we need to unblock the highways (meridians) in our body so energy can flow freely. Blockages can be caused by trauma, toxins, stress, or emotional turmoil. If the energy can’t flow freely anymore, we might experience mental and emotional issues or it can even cause physical ailments.
The same is true for your space and the surrounding land. If there are any energetic blockages in your home, may it be through earth energy problems, water veins, emotional hot spots, or even spirits, they can affect you in the same way.
Reasons to receive an Energy Healing
Most importantly, if you have any physical, emotional, or mental issues, please see a professional healthcare provider first. You need to ensure there aren’t any serious underlying issues causing these problems. Energy Healing is a great additional tool for your vitality and your well-being, but only if used responsibly.
Some of the reasons to receive an Energy Healing treatment:
- Aids with insomnia
- Can reduce stress and anxiety
- Relaxes your mind and body
- Can ease pain
- Increases your energy levels
- Helps to process emotions
- Can improve your health
- Reduces Headaches
- Makes you more aware
- Can help to reduce physical and mental exhaustion.
- Can help to regulate traumatic experiences
If you experience any issues and believe you would benefit from any of the above mentions, then you can consider receiving an energy healing.
The good news is, you don’t even need to leave your house to receive a treatment. Reiki and other forms of energy healing are not bound by time or space. Energy can travel far by intent only, and can even travel into the past, healing and energetically balancing a traumatic event.
How can you receive a distance Energy Healing?
If you decided to receive an energy healing, the process will differ depending on the type.
Distance Energy Healing for a Person
So you opted for a Reiki session, for example.
Usually, your Reiki practitioner will connect with you via email or perhaps even a Zoom call. Both of you can set a date and time for your energy healing. Create a space for yourself where you will be undisturbed for about thirty minutes. Set aside a few minutes before your session to calm your mind, perhaps light a candle and burn some incense or diffuse some essential oils. You can also play some relaxing music in the background, something you truly enjoy, and puts your mind at ease. Then find a comfortable position. It doesn’t matter if you sit on your couch or lie in bed, as long as you feel comfortable. Then the session will begin. You can use visualizations. Your Reiki practitioner might have shared some ideas with you. If visualization doesn’t come easy to you, you might just want to repeat a mantra, either quietly in your head, or you whisper them to yourself during the time of healing. A mantra can, and in all honesty, should be short and simple. A phrase like “I am open to receive” or “The energy now flows freely” is enough. To repeat the words several times will also help to keep the monkey mind at bay. Whenever you notice that your mind is shifting to your everyday tasks and endless to-do lists, just repeat the mantra.
During an energy healing, it is also advised to focus on your breathing. You don’t need to use any specific techniques, but you can if you are familiar with it. But the simple act of paying attention to your breath will also keep your mind from constantly drifting off, and you can bring your thoughts back to the present moment.
The energy healing in itself usually lasts about twenty minutes. Set a timer and give yourself a few minutes before you return to your normal, everyday life.
After an energy healing, it is important to drink enough and to ground yourself afterwards.
Some people like to use a visualization of letting roots grow from their feet deep into the ground and to draw up the energy from Mother Earth into their solar plexus.
Others enjoy a gentle walk outside, or just eat something. Grounding is essential, as any type of energy work can leave you a tad spacey. Therefore, it is important to come back to earth and to be fully present.
After you’ve received your energy healing, contact your Reiki practitioner and share your observations with them. They are always eager to receive feedback and hear about what you experienced.
Not everyone will feel something, and that’s okay, it’s still working.
There is also another option if you can’t agree on a time and date that works for you and your Reiki practitioner. They can send you a chi ball. This is a technique many Reiki practitioners use, as we live often in different time zones.
Basically, you can imagine it as an energy ball that floats through time and space and whenever you call upon it, the healing energy will be ready for you. You still use the same steps as if you would have set up a date and time, but this method is more flexible for you.
Energy Healing for a space and land
If you would get an energy healing for a space, like a house healing for example, the process will differ a bit, yet your energy healer will still contact you via email or Zoom to discuss the issues you are experiencing. The work for the house healing involves a longer period of dowsing the different aspects (fifty sections, in my case). It can take several days to dowse through the different sections and note down the results. During that time, your energy healer (House Healer) will stay in contact with you and will inform you when they have finished the dowsing and when they will do the healing. Depending on what you have discussed beforehand, you can still agree on a time and date for the healing, but it can take longer than twenty minutes. For a healing on such a big scale, I would advise to only stay open and to become more aware of the subtleties within yourself and your environment. You might notice tiny shifts in the energy within and without. Also, again here, some people don’t notice anything, or better, it might take a few weeks before the energetic shifts manifest in a way that they enter your awareness.
Other people might feel it almost instantly and might even undergo a healing crisis. Even though this sounds a tad dramatic, it is nothing dangerous or nothing to be overly concerned about.
I will write an extra post about what can happen after you receive an energy healing, and how you can make a healing crisis easier for yourself.
