Energy Healing: What It Is, Benefits, and Methods
What Is Energy?
Energy is something we can feel, but cannot touch. Energy is a powerful force as real as everything we can touch and see, and hear. Energy is all around us. It is the cause behind every effect we experience. All energy, no matter the source, produces power. To harness this power and use it productively is an ever learning and growing experience.
"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched . They must be felt with the heart." Helen Keller
Different forms of energy
The sun emits radiant energy. We can feel the heat and the radiance. We cannot however, touch the sun or even a sunbeam, and cannot look at it directly. The power emitted by the sun is tremendous, it feeds human and plant forms alike, it is the cause for growth in fruit and vegetable production, or the total destruction of life as in the desert. We can see the effects
The wind is energy. We can feel it as a subtle breeze or with the force of hurricane strength winds. We cannot touch or see the wind, we can however, see the effects of wind as things move when its powerful energy passes by.
An earthquake is energy. We can feel the vibration, we can see the effects, yet we cannot see or touch the vibration itself.
Emotions are energy. We can feel a myriad of emotional experiences, we can see the resultant effect, we cannot however, touch an emotion. Emotion is the energy that causes things to happen just like the sun, wind and earthquakes.
These are only a few examples of energy, the most powerful being emotions.
Benefits of Energy Healing
The benefits of energy healing are really beyond what words can describe or what our minds can comprehend. Energy healing is absolutely the most natural healing available. Energy is given to each and every one of us equally no matter our financial status, our gender, our nationality or locality.
Sunlight shines for each and every one of us, the wind blows no matter what, and vibrations are regularly occurring everywhere. Emotions are experienced by everyone and each of us has our individual choice of what the emotions are, thereby determining our own outcome.
To benefit from energy healing we need only learn and apply the knowledge. It is technically a do-it-yourself process. As we advance into the deeper layers of energy and its healing properties we discover the power generated by united and combined energy with others to increase the impact. These processes are taking place whether we are aware of them or not. How nice to learn how to harness and consciously choose as individuals and as societies to heal not only ourselves but the world as a whole.
Energy creates power or as it is referred to in healing...Empowerment. Health enhancement through energy healing is life empowerment on every level.of our life experience.
Different Ways of Healing with Energy
There are as many diverse ways of healing with energy as there are forms of energy. Movement and emotions alike create energy flows, producing power over all things. Harnessing this energy is as versatile in healing as it is in producing power in any other form.
Yoga in its many diverse forms is one way of energy healing. It utilizes different motions creating energy flows affecting our own personal energy fields, auras, chakras and meridians alike.
Reiki is a form of energy healing. It is an energy practice combined with meditation that can be done by a practitioner or learned and performed on yourself.
Vibrational therapy includes, but is not limited to music, sounds, colors, meditations and mantras. All of these things are vibrational energies that emit and can be felt even without the ability to see or hear. A sound vibration can be experienced by the deaf. Vibrations can be very subtle or very profound, however they manifest they are a cause creating an effect.
Acupuncture, acupressure and Meridian tapping are all energy therapies working directly with emotional energy flows and can impact and alter emotions by releasing unwanted emotional experiences and allowing new wanted emotions to enter.
There are many other forms of working with energy and the realization of ways to harness this energy for achieving complete physical, mental and emotional health through the use of these unlimited resources are being discovered daily.
