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.

i think that you have put this in the most straight forward way it can be put. i know that for some the concept of energy having the possibility to heal seems far too out there and is only for the mystics and highly spiritual. The truth is we work and nourish ourselves with energy everyday, with the food we eat and the lifestyle we keep. It does not have to be scary, overwhelming or far too profound for us to work with. It is nature.

emzneale, I appreciate your comments so very much, your summation says what I didn't. It is easy, it is nature, it is for everyone. Let your light shine!

Hello emohealer. I really like your articles. I have browsed through several. Energy medicine is the future to my mind (whether the role of energy 'healing' really fits into 'medicine' is a whole other question of course). Something that struck me while reading was a quote I heard years ago that I can't remember who it is attributed to now: We touch with our fingers but we FEEL with our hearts.

Thanks again.

emohealer 7 years ago from South Carolina Author

Hello Shaman1,

That is such a beautiful quote, I felt it as I read it, Thank you for adding it to this hub. I am glad you liked the articles you have read so far, thanks. You may have a point that as things become more developed and the future becomes the present, we may have a totally different language for speaking of these things. Feel free to let your light shine on my hubs anytime....Thanks!

Very interesting and knowledgeable!!! I've always believed that prayer was one of the best healing energy detonators. Sending those healing and positive thoughts out into the universe. This article has given me even deeper insight into the power of healing energy. Thank you!! Peace~ K

Ah Kim, how nice you found this hub, prayer IS something that is felt. I love that term "energy detonators", very nice! There is more energy available to heal and live better by than any of us can begin to fathom. Your light is shinging brightly, you are enjoying the journey, thanks for shining your light here.

Wonderful hub. We as a society need to learn to radiate from within and stop waiting for someone to do something to us or give us for healing. We need to harness the feelings of Wellness and wear it like a comfortable sweater when we need it.

emohealer 7 years ago from South Carolina Author


What a wonderful response and description. I like the feeling of it being a comfortable sweater we can wear. It is indeed within, we radiate it from ourselves and it can intermingle with everyone elses. Your light is shining brightly, keep radiating such comfort and welness. Love and Light to your JOurneY!

This is a great hub on describing what energy healing is! I've started meditating and aligning my chakras this year and finding inner peace. When I mention chakras to most people they look at me like I'm talking a foreign language. I will now refer those who ask to this hub. Thanks for sharing and explaining energy healing so fluently. :)

This cold laser technology is something I use and teach, I was only introduced to it about 2 months ago, but with my knowledge of vibrational therapy and how it works, I embraced this technological use of vibration quickly. I am now teaching this as part of my presentations. Thank you so much for sharing your insights into these things as well. I Love your quote on wisdom,,,,,may I borrow? Thanks again!

Money Glitch:

Thank you so much for your acknowledgement and sharing. I was blessed as someone asked me the question to ponder and answer what is energy healing. I am so glad for the question and that the answer resonates and brings understanding. I commend you as you seek inner peace and personal evolution to higher planes. Chakras are an integral part of our energy system and I refer to chakra work as a major portion of vibrational healing. Bless you on your journey, much love and are already shining so brightly!
