Healing is Natural
Energy healing is tapping into the Universal (Energy) Life Force to heal a person, animal, event, etc. There are many different forms, including Reiki (which is the laying of hands to heal). But for the sake of the basic meaning we will call all forms of Healing: Energy Healing.
I am an Energy Worker as well as a Spiritual Teacher. When you are healing someone or thinking you are healing someone you are in ego. If you are thinking that you yourself are healing another, then that is the ego in its fullest form.
I am an energy worker that regards myself as simply the channel by which the Divine flows through to the person coming for a session. Those, like me, that not only hold the space for the energy transference to take place, but also feel this energy flows through them to the person. I also know that the person must be there in a receptive and open state in order to receive and “heal”, therefore also contributing to the “healing” themselves. (By saying healing I mean raising their own vibration to open up to the true 100% perfectly healthy person they are within and always have been.)
I feel that when I raise my energy (connecting to the energies I connect to), I am in a beautiful blissful state and ego-less. I am able to also then feel the client as their 100% perfect whole and complete self and truly feel with my whole being the light form they are and therefore then connect with them as the light form I am and in that space we are one, we are raising vibrations and come into the more full form we truly are: light beings/consciousness. (This is also the meaning of Namaste.) Amazing transformations happen!
Is Energy Healing right for you?
You may or may not know if certain types of energy healing is the direction or you. (i.e. Reiki) You will know and feel it if it is. For me, I received my Reiki I attunement and then waited 2 years before my Reiki II attunement. I wasn’t sure I resonated with Reiki I, but there were lessons I needed to go through as well after having taken my Reiki I. Once I received my Reiki II Attunement I quickly accelerated in my attunement process, as I felt I was ready. Love it! In Reiki there are hand positions for when you send healing to someone. For me, I felt that I didn’t necessarily need to have *exact* hand placement position to send healing energy. I go with how I am guided and what feels comfortable and right with my hands if doing local healing. You will do Reiki or any Energy Healing as you feel it through your soul. Your intuition guides you.
First a little about Reiki
Reiki is (hands on) energy healing. What I feel occurs is, we as the Reiki practitioner align with the Universal Life Force energy and act as a conduit for this energy to pass through to the person(s) we are healing. This energy enters the recipient and goes to where the recipient needs it most for their highest and best, good either physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually. A lovely example of how reiki works is: With your Reiki I attunement it is like the power of a 50 watt bulb opening up and going through your Crown Chakra. Reiki II is like a 500 watt bulb. And Reiki III/Master is like a 5000 watt bulb in intensity through your Crown Chakra. And with each there seems to be a level of lessons (you progress into) for the majority who get attuned. For Reiki I it seems to be lessons in the physical realm that will be brought up in intensity to be released. (i.e. car issues, etc.) What I’ve also noticed is that this may even start just BEFORE your actual attunement. Like in preparation. For Reiki II the lessons seem to be focused more in the emotional/mental realm. Issues will be brought up that you have buried or have not dealt with yet. You will see them more clearly and release them once and for all before moving on to the next level. Reiki III/Master brings up Karmic-type lessons and any left over excess that has not been worked on in previous attempts.
The quicker you realize these lessons, wake up to them, work on them and release them, the quicker you can move on to wonderful new horizons. But remember a couple things. One, don’t go too fast. If you move too quickly you will be bombarded with confusion and chaos. This may hinder your growth rather than taking it one step at a time. Also, most importantly just enjoy the ride. That’s what we’re here for. More on what Reiki is to me can be read here.
There are other types of reiki (i.e. Karuna, Rainbow, etc.) and those are valid as well. I am a Usui & Karuna Reiki Master/Teacher. I also have attunements in Akamai, Color Spectrum & ArchAngels, etc. What each attunement in any source of healing that you resonate with does is brings you closer to knowing yourself and source. You raise your vibrations every time. I have also received an array of healings in other modalities, such as Sound healing. Sound (vibrational) healing is a most wonderful way to give or receive a healing. This gets to the core of your vibration in a most assuredly strong and vital way. Sound healing is done in a variety of ways as well. By using your voice in different tones, Tom Kenyon is an excellent example! Another excellent source is Jonathan Goldman has a wonderful site with articles, information and more in the Sound arena that may peek your curiosity. There is Sound healing through instruments, such as Drums (the Heart of the Drum is so Powerful!), Tuning forks, meditative music and music of ALL kinds. What about healing through movements, such as yoga and dance. Moving your body is so healing and freeing. I’m a big fan of Trance Dance Yoga. A lot of fun too! You find the way that works best for you. Although I am attached to a few ways that resonate most with me, I find that a mixture of ALL of these ways are what raise us to new vibrations!!
For many, we first receive attunements or knowledge-base in new Healing Ways to help heal ourselves. First and foremost that is what we all need to do anyway! We can only help the world by first helping and loving ourselves. Some will follow a path of healing in the mainstream and even turn it into their main source of income. Others may never touch the healing abilities learned ever again. However, IT has touched THEM. They are forever changed in a positive directly just for reaching out and receiving the attunements, or new ways or working with others. This is one stepping stone to raising your vibration, open up your psychic channels even more and just have a great awareness for the All that is. There can be a subtle shift in vibration and awareness or a strong one depending on the individual and what they planned for themselves prior to incarnating. But you may not even notice the strong changes in your being until years later and then as you put the pieces to the puzzle together, look at yourself now compared to back then and realize something amazing took place.
The many modalities like: Sound Healing, Ho’oponopono, Switchwords, The Law of Attraction & Allowing, The Sedona Method, Power of Positive thinking, etc., are all types of working with the Universe and your energies. We are energy beings and what we put out there comes back to us 1000%! We attract everything that comes into our lives. Ho’oponopono offers a simple yet powerful way of releasing/healing. Please see my Ho’oponopono article for a more in-depth peek. Switchwords also offers a unique yet simple way. Kind of like affirmations. I’ve, also, experienced wonderful results just by utilizing the magic if Switchwords. A wonderful yahoo group for this is found here. Here you will receive a free ebook about Switchwords to get you started. Enjoy! And with everything there is the underlying current of the Law of Attraction and Allowing. We truly attract everything into our lives, good or bad. So focus on what you would like for good and ALLOW it into your life. You DESERVE it!
Now some have asked what’s the sense of using Intentions and Vision Boards for manifesting your desires when there are Ways like Ho’oponopono. Is there a know-all-end-all method? We each follow our path uniquely. So for some just following Ho’oponopono strictly is enough. For others it’s a start and they integrate it with other ideas & methods. Maybe those people will eventually only work with Ho’oponopono and maybe they won’t. I also feel there are stepping stones. Some will start with learning about the Law of Attraction. It’s all new and we all need to start somewhere to come into our own unique ‘Knowing’. Creating Vision Boards, using Intentions, etc. are ways of putting your energy out there for a want or a goal. These people are needing to learn through this way first. Then they progress to feel that healing and forgiveness are next. They may go into Reiki to learn of healing or any number of other healing modalities. In Forgiveness some may take up Therapy or realize there is a higher level that needs to be explored and fall into the wonderful realm of Ho’oponopono that heals, forgives and transmutes to pure light. Some stop there and raise their vibrations all the while Ho’oponopono’ing happily. Some may integrate their Ho’oponopono, Law of Attraction, Healing ways into something more advanced that works for them. It doesn’t matter, as long as you are being true to yourself and having a blast doing it!
You must follow your path as it feels right. It all comes down to LOVE. The Power of LOVE energy is the actual vibration that heals us and lifts us up. Since we ARE that Love force, we are becoming more and more aware of our true selves. The flowering of consciousness, as Eckhart Tolle says. All of these modalities have the benefit of reaching the ultimate state of Love. Be open to Love and the possibilities are endless! We are all connected by Love. Whatever it is that excites you and brings you joy is what you are meant to do. In following your passion you share your LOVE with the world. This is where the doors fly open for you as an individual. Divine inspiration will come and all you have to do is follow! You are each unique with unique talents and gifts that you must share with the world in your way. If you want it, then there is a need for it, and what you want wants you! So start those tiny or huge steps in that direction and see the magic flow in your life.
Remember, there are many ways and all lead to the same. Enjoy the Way. For your enjoyment, here is a wonderful movie on drumming your heart out!
