If you’ve followed me for a while, you will probably know that I’m very into energy healing as a way of reconnecting to the self and healing the mind, body and spirit.
If you’ve followed along recently, then this post is to explain what energy healing is and why it so important to me and my well-being.
What is energy?
The simplest definition of energy is “the ability to do work”. Energy is how things change and move.
Every single thing on this planet is made up of energy! Energy is everywhere and in every thing. If we just take the time to check in with ourselves we will see if our vibe needs re-aligning, this is an act of self-care and it has helped me and many others through murky waters.
When our bodies energy field is in flow, we function at optimal levels. We sleep better, feel better, are more in touch with our intuition, and we are more likely to take better care of ourselves, those around us and mother nature.
Due to a number of factors, namely past traumas, triggers, world issues and interactions with others, blockages often occur in these energy fields. The energy field, or the aura, that each physical body exists in, is made up of different energy centers, or chakras. Each chakra is usually associated with a specific area of the body and it’s organs. For example, the throat chakra system, located around the area of the neck, is physically associated with the throat, teeth, respiratory system, vocal cords and thyroid.
Each energy center or chakra, usually has an emotional aspect to it too – the throat center is associated with speaking your truth, communicating, and the self-expression of your feelings. Often when we have a sore throat, this is usually something to do with the way we are communicating or not speaking our truth.
Did you know that we can carry the physical and emotional trauma of our mothers, grandmothers and other ancestors? Every action or thought we experience as humans, creates neurological pathways in our cells, and through conception and birth, we carry the cells of our parents and grandparents. It’s not only our ancestor’s physical attributes we inherit (oh you have your grandfather’s blue eyes!), but also their emotional attributes. It’s mind blowing!
When we experience a blockage in our energy fields, (sometimes it can just be the mere interaction with a particular person who may trigger your emotional traumas), that blockage can cause us to feel ill, tired, listless, and sometimes it will even cause physical trauma or injury in our bodies.
Everything is connected. We do not just get ill as there is a virus going around. There is always a deeper message. Think of your body’s energy field as a spider web – if someone (and that someone could even be yourself) causes harm to the web and breaks a thread in one part of it, the whole web is compromised and becomes vulnerable to breaking. We need to repair that thread to make the web whole and complete and functioning again.
This is where energy healing comes in to play. Or, more specifically, Reiki.
What is energy healing?
Energy healing involves working on the field of energy around our body, to heal our mind, body and soul. It goes deep beneath the surface ‘stuff’ to root out energies that are stagnant, stuck and continuing to wound.
The word Rei-Ki in Japanese means “life force energy”. Practically, Reiki involves the “laying on of hands” over a person’s body and energetic field. The healer will place their hands above the body of the patient and use the energy of their own body and hands to channel and direct the energy of the patient to a place of flow. Massage and reflexology is physical and the healer will use their hands directly on the patient’s body to promote and stimulate the movement of energy.
How do I know if it’s time for some healing?
For me, I know I need to see someone whenever I start feeling anxious, overly tired, run down, hopeless, or physically ill. After I’ve been for energy healing, I instantly feel lighter, calmer and more positive. I’m “in flow”. And everything in my life is in flux too – my relationships with my partner, my relationship with myself, my relationship with my work and my creative self, and even my relationship with my bank account! This is why I make it a habit to see a healer every three to four weeks – to maintain this flow and to not let my mind and body get into a really deep, dark place of neglect and, ultimately, dis-ease. Of course, there are always things to work on every visit – life is life, after all, and we are constantly interacting and dealing with other people, their own energy fields and the stuff it can bring up within us. Healing is a life-long journey.
Energy healing is like coming home. A whole vibrational lift. A stripping away of all the accumulated “dirt”. A repairing and return to the polished and shiny soul, the higher self connection. It’s a reminder of who I really am and a deep acceptance of all the parts of me that make me, me. It’s as close to giving my heart and soul a big hug as I can get in human form and I/ You deserve that!
Now that you know what it’s all about, why not book in your healing treatment here.
