Sharpen the senses and Nurture the Body by Energy Healing

When people tackle the topic of energy healing, they're talking about using spiritual energy to enhance the natural healing ability of the body. If you've ever prayed for somebody, or tried to "recharge" someone who was feeling run down, then you already know what I'm talking about. Many different methods for doing this have been developed to get the best results, and we'll explore a few in this article.

The idea to use spiritual energy to heal people is as old as time. Both in the East and West, people have come to the same conclusion that energy work can be used to heal. These days, we take a systematic approach, and look to refine the processes into something that fits our modern way of thinking. The end result is the same, but the road to get there differs.

One important thing to keep in mind when discussing the topic of energy healing is that we are more than our physical body. Our consciousness is energy that is working with the body, but is not truly of the body. These methods work partly by making sure that the body is calmed and balanced, but it also can soothe a weary soul.

Different Types of Healing

Everyone approaches energy healing from a different perspective and with different goals. Each person will bring something unique to the understanding of how it all works.

Some of the more popular forms of healing practice today are Reiki, EFT and Pranic healing.

  • Reiki is hands-on healing in the early levels, and is taught person-to-person.
  • EFT - Emotional Freedom Techniques - is derived from acupuncture. It uses a series of light taps on the face and body to restore balance.
  • Breathing in the life of the universe and letting it heal you is the basis of Pranic healing.

Learning to Heal

If you want to learn energy healing, my advice would be to start by sitting quietly and pay close attention to your body.

Listen to your breath. Notice each small movement of your chest and abdomen with each breath in and out.

Notice how your clothes feel on your skin. The sound in the air, the temperature, the weight on your arms or face. Everything. The more you can recognize the subtleties, the better off you'll be.

If I had to pick which method to suggest you try first, it'd be EFT. It's easy, it's simple, and it gets the job done for many purposes. Most importantly, it doesn't need a teacher there to attune you.

(I happen to favor Reiki over EFT in my own practice,but that's me.)

 I'd also advise you to learn the basics of pranic healing, as that will increase your awareness and understanding of how it all works.

Use What Feels Right

We all have our individual talents and motivations. You may feel a pull to one method of healing or another. Perhaps, like me, you may feel compelled to study all you can find. The one thing that will really boost your ability to heal is to be as aware as possible, for as long as possible, as much as possible. Good meditation practice will help with that.

There's a lot to explore in energy healing. These techniques are just a couple out of many, and each has its own richness and complexity and that makes this a wonderful area of study. The very process of learning healing can benefit you greatly, as you learn to heal the mind, body, and spirit.
