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. Or how about trying some lesser known but still effective energy healing techniques including acupuncture, acupressure, scanning, still (or healing) hands, and magnetizing? 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.
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.
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.
