Healing With Energy Techniques

Updated on March 19, 2016

The Energy Body and The Physcial Body

Energy healing is used to treat all aspects of our energy anatomy in addition to our physical anatomy. We have all learned at least a little bit about our physical anatomy, but there is a lesser known part of our anatomy that is not as easily dissected or visible to the human eye, our energy anatomy! To use energy techniques, a basic understanding of what this anatomy is and where it is located is important. There are many ways to access the energy anatomy for improved health and wellness. We are all interacting with our energy and others energy on a daily basis. A better understanding of this can give us all more control over our overall health without the intervention of a specialist. We can maintain our energy body similar to the ways we maintain our physical body. The energy body and the physical body are not separate, they are all part of one and the same, working together just as the circulatory system works together with the skeletal system.

Our Subtle Energy Anatomy

There are three primary parts to our Energy Anatomy, the aura, chakras and meridians.

The aura is a membrane that surrounds our entire physical body, this membrane functions very much like our skin absorbing and releasing from our environment, it contains recent memory and interaction from our outside world experience, taking in and releasing energy just as our lungs take in air and release it back out in to the environment. Auras can be pictured with special photography just as we can take pictures of the heat radiated from the physical body. The aura can be one or many of the colors of the rainbow, the color, appearance and density are all indicators of our current physical health.

We have seven primary chakras. Chakras are spiralling energy vortexes identified by specific colors and located in specific regions in relation to our physical body. These vortexes contain all of our memories of all events that have ever occurred in our lives. This is where the color emanates from that is seen in the aura.

We have 11 primary meridianlines running through our bodies very similar to the primary blood veins we have running through our bodies. Our life force or life energy flows through these meridians keeping constant care of our bodily functions just as they do in our physical anatomy. Meridians can become clogged just as our arteries do and there are techniques to clear these meridians.

Donna Eden on Chakras and Chakra Clearing

Energy Techniques

There are many specialist in energy healing techniques, as well as many techniques we can do ourselves. By learning these techniques we can empower ourselves, heal ourselves and maintain our own energy anatomy systems.

Donna Eden is the American pioneer of bringing some of these Eastern energy techniques to the United States and other countries, taking them out of clinics and spas and putting them into individuals hands. Here is one of her videos as she demonstrates where each of the 11 meridian lines are and how to trace and clear them as part of a daily routine. As we shower each day we are keeping our physical bodies maintained, as we trace our meridians each day we are keeping our energy meridians clean in the same manner.

For working with our aura, wave the hands in an upward motion starting at the toes and moving our arms in the upward flow moving up our physical bodies we are "fluffing" it out and clearing any places that may have been closed and are not flowing openly. We are all interactring with each others auras each and every day an exchange of energy takes place between us.

For working with the chakras, place the hand about an inch away from the body at each chakra vortex in a counter-clockwise motion clear old energies, shake off, then follow up on each chakra vortex with a clockwise motion.

Additional Energy Techniques

There are many specific energy motions done on a regular or daily basis that will keep our energy anatomy running smoothly which directly correlates with how smoothly our physical anatomy is operating.

For keeping our lungs open and clear, overcoming allergic reactions, eliminating coughing or any other type of breathing difficulties to include asthma and snoring: Close your mouth and cover one nostril, breath in and out three times through the open nostril, without taking a breath in between and without breathing through your mouth, cover the opposite nostril and breath in and through the other open nostril. This may sound very simple, but you may find it a bit difficult at first. In the beginning try 3 short breaths in and out and as you become more accustomed to it take longer more natural in and out breaths. This is best done as a preventative maintenance, however if you are having difficulties with any of these issues for instant a cough, this will alleviate it at that time. This technique is also very effective for headaches they will go away quite quickly after doing this breathing exercise.

The other technique I share with everyone on a regular basis is the "zip up". This process is done by palm facing the body.with fingers extended, either hand or both hands whichever is preferred. The hand can be touching the body or up to 6 inches away from the body. Start at the pelvic bone and keeping that hand facing the body trace up to the bottom of the lower lip. Trace three times in this manner and after the third time when you reach the lower lip do a twisting motion with the hand like you would do if you were indicating your lips were locked. The primary purpose of this is this covers the lower portion of the chakras, which represent needs, desires, power, love and communication. Leaving the two upper chakras open which are insight and inspiration. As we interact with each others energies there is always an exchange, I am sure we all have encountered someone at some times who left us "feeling drained" or someone who left us feeling "re-charged",. What this technique does is limits our energetic transactions with others to only what is for the higher good for both parties involved. This exercise can also be accomplished mentally, take a moment to "mentally" or visually in your minds eye to zip all those you are interacting with, "zip up" your children before sending them to school or day care. This keeps the energy interchange we are all experiencing out of the lower personal agendas and only into the higher agendas of inspiration and insight for the greater good of all.

Learn More

 These is just a brief over view of the techniques available.  Techniques for taking charge of our own energy anatomy are becoming more and more open to us everyday.  No longer trade secrets for the professional.  I do seminars and training events for these techniques as does Donna Eden and many others.  If you are interested in me doing any training events in your area, please contact me.  Search the web for training events they are all over now.  Our energy anatomy is such an integral part of our "being", to ignore it would be like forgetting to eat or drink water.  Many of us subconsciously through learned instinct or habit do motions on a regular basis working with our energy anatomy, how wonderful it will be when all of us learn and do these things consciously just as we schedule dinner and daily showers. 

I wish all of you the best of health, take charge of your life in ways you may never have imagined before!

      Great article and very well written. I am a newbie to hub pages, so new I haven't written an article or even my bio yet. I previously worked as a psychotherapist, and retired to do my own thing. My own thing is a variety of Interests, however, my main interest has been to learn to work with spirit uality. I have been interested, or should I say longing to be involved in spirituality for a very long time, but afraid of the psychic aspect which seems to surface from time to time. I have had some interesting experiences along the way, and am excited to have found your page, I will be reading all your articles I think. I love the work you do and your obviously generous spirit.

      This is such a wonderful Hub, thanks for more info. on healing energies. I have a hub on meditations that touches just a bit on this. I am very interested in learning more and putting this into my own meditation practices. Many people are still unaware of these great techniques, thanks for helping to keep awareness going!

      Very nice article! I'm a believer in energy healing. After completing a healing touch level I course, it fascinated me as to how it has a positive effect on people. I was totally convinced! I also plan on furthering my experiences by attending a healing touch level II class. It's unfortunate how some backgrounds associate it with the "devil's work" or "black magic". For me personally, I think God gives us the ability to do this. I've accepted that people have their own opinions and I can change their thinking. It actually makes me have more respect for their differences. Thanks for the article, very informative!

      Jodi: So glad to see you further exploring and re-opening the door to energy work! I started out many years ago with the dissolving of negative energy cords and returning them to the universe as positive energy forces. Since learning the "zip up" I have found this to be unnecesary, try this in a few instances and please share the results you experieince as the negative flow never even has an opportunity to connect in the first place.

      Have you tried the fluffing yet? This is one exercise that really takes us into "expanding" our own view and feeling lighter and more fulfilled almost instantaneously (sp).

      Thanks for appreciating the fresh breeze I hope it continues to beam brightly through you...Namaste'

    • emohealer profile image

      Sioux Ramos 7 years ago from South Carolina

      Michelle: I can see that brilliant white radiating from you, they say we can seldom see our own light. Being a seeker with continual questions is fantastic, never stop asking and learning and sharing. So gald this found further inspiration and questions for you, can't wait to join you, Daisy, Dottie, Marie, and Shirley at your center in the Phillipines! Thanks you also for always making my world a brighter place! :-)

      Wonderful, informative hub! Well researched and presented. It has been a while since I have done energy work or received it. I really like the 'fluffing'. I think the one approach I have been performing more of is 'dissolving cords' of others energy that becomes attached to mine.. from "energy vampires".

      So needless to say, your article is a glowing beam with a fresh breeze to me . Thank you very much.

      Oh Sue, I am laughing in my heart right now with delight and goosebumps are flowing all over my body -- tingling things that speak of joy and excitement. Oh yes! I love to learn and understand how energy works and be more effective in what I do. In our country, nobody is into the energy explanation, it is connected more with God and prayer. Although this is also very, very, wonderful but God knows me and my mind (hahaha) and sent me Daisy to help me out in this area. Like you, she is into research and tells me stuff I need to know at a certain point. LOL

      How's this for eerie (coincidence)...Daisy told me (many times because I still am in disbelief sometimes) that if I am so connected with my divinity (power and light that you see), she sees me so brilliantly white? (of course, I didn't believe her) One time, we were walking on the street to have a radio interview with the kids and one of Daisy's students asked her, "Why is sister Michelle so white?" Hahahahahaha

      Okay, I confess these things just bring me into a questioning mode all over again, "what do you mean? can you explain that to me again...etc..." The mind is very powerful and I can get into such a state of negativity too. But since I am more aware and no longer wish to stay in that state, so I get back to connecting again! Aaah, I am so excited and happy talking to you about this. Thank you for writing this hub. LOL

      Daisy and I are visualizing that we can make a healing and wellness center in our city. And we plan to invite you, marie, dottie, shirley to come over and give talks. Hahahahahah Let the money flow yippppeee! Thanks Sue for making my morning bright and beautiful!

      Michelle, you are more than a healer, you are an empath, I am sure you have heard the term. As an empath, you need to be more aware how the energy works to work effectively with it and keep yourself healthy and well. I have watched you follow my energy trails on the internet and it is almost eerie sometimes, I have done this many times but have never met another who does it without even having knowledge they are doing it.

      I think you have been able to learn and decipher what is your stuff and what is others now, but we are so inter-connected. I am humbled at this last part, I see so much power and light in you that you seeking a mentor seems amazing to me. You like me are always asking and the answers come from unique places. I will share as much as possible as I know you like me hunger for this knowledge and it needs to be fed just like our physical bodies. You and Daisy have been such an inspiration to me as well. Look for more info to be coming into your personal mail as I compile the information I have that I know you seek and this will surely take you on a journey to other places. The answers exist, we just have to know the questions to ask, ask them and listen. What an inspiration you are, Love, Light and Laughter my friend....=) Sue

      Oh Sue you are so right about "absorbing" or taking in other people's pain/negativity. I couldn't understand why I was always feeling down and up the next(in a seemingly roller coaster ride). Other times, I would be feeling nauseous. And other times, I keep on farting Hahahahah One day a cousin-in-law healer took hold of my hand and told me, "this is not your pain!" I was like struck with a bolt of lightning. Understanding and awareness really helps. And then I told Daisy I am praying for a mentor. You see I like to ask many things and want to grasp it all in. So I thank God I have found you :) as I have found Daisy.

      Michelle, isn't it interesting how many people, you as one of them instinctively know what to do and do it naturally. There are many others out there and with what you share, you help bring many to understand the inherant gifts they have. It is not necessary to know of the energy anatomy but once one does and is already aware of the "hot hands" as you describe them, the knowledge and understanding happens in leaps and bounds.

      Only a healer would know what you refer to as "protecting" yourself. Many healers... as I used to do in the past and what prevented me from using the gift earlier on as I thought it a curse for a long time...was oftentimes I took on their pain or negativity not as a conscious choice but as a matter of natural occurrence. The zip up is very effective for this, but you cannot zip your clients until their treatment is complete as the last step, to "seal in" per say the treatment. Shaking off the energy as you do the circular motions and sending it back into the etherical energy to be purified is also an important part, even if you are doing it as self healing, let your stuff go. Thank You so much as you share in your knowledge and learning experiences and like me continue to seek more. Love, Light and Laughter...Big Hug X=)

      Michelle Simtoco 7 years ago from Cebu, Philippines

      When I started doing healing work, Daisy asked me once how did I know that I should move my hands in the way you mentioned above. That's when she told me about the chakra's and auras. That must have been instinct, she said. It must have been LOL

      I like this Zip Up technique Sue. There are moments when I get drained and I kept asking how to "protect" myself. Thanks for sharing this technique. I am an eager student and looking forward to learning more. Hugs, love and blessings! :)

      I promise I will continue to examine the subject and form my opinion based on knowledge not ignorance. Thanks for your helpful advice, Sue.

    • emohealer profile image

      Sioux Ramos 7 years ago from South Carolina

      Dar, So glad as you share your skepticism and open mind. This is not based on Eastern religions, Eastern religions are based on this knowledge. This knowledge and information has been around for centuries, it is just amazing as modern science and technology has been able to prove its existence. Even more interesting as modern medicine and politics work very hard to encourage the belief and understanding you have had that it is religious or cult based and to suppress the information, studies, bioligical and scientific proof of how it works.

      As you explore the possiblities with a skeptical, open mind I will share the one piece of advice that I have found most useful: You have nothing to lose and everything to gain if it is true. These methodologies cost no money, it does not require a belief or understanding of the energy anatomy and the worst case scenario is that you make a lot of silly gestures which can cause no harm.

      I really appreciate that you feel respect in regards to me personally as I share information, very humbling. Love, Light and Laughter, your friend, Sue

      Hi Sue, I must admit I don't have much understanding of this so was glad to see you have written about it. I thought it was based on Eastern religions and still am not sure if this is the case.

      Although I can't say it is for me, I do appreciate someone I respect explaining it to me in a way that brings more understanding.

      I imagine as I read more, I will keep forming an educated opinion. Thanks for writing this, I really appreciate it.

      pamela, how interesting you had an auric picture taken! It is not basic photography that does this it is kirlian photography based on similar principles as x-ray, many different ways of taking pictures and technology is advancing so rapidly now it is exciting. Purple and white, you are very at peace with yourself, very adept at keeping negativity out of your experience, A very giving person but not from your heart or your head, just because the moment feels right. You function primarily from insight and inspiration, you "just know" what is right and what is not, even though you may question yourself, things always turn out upside up. Thanks for sharing your personal experience here, that is always exciting. BTW, appreciated your hub on Reiki...isn't the energy amazing? Keep shining so brightly and sharing so openly, stay healthy and well! Sue

      Marie, You will love how you feel after the aura fluffing, you will feel more full and radiant. I am still trying to get my video working to post personal demos of these techniques. Your are right about Gary Schwartz's book being "dry", but funny you should mention it as it is the one my elbow was resting on as I wrote this hub, just pulled it out to re-visit a few points. His book is one I have referenced in mine, along with Gregg Braden, The Divine Matrix, and Bruce Lipton, The Biology of Belief. All contain the scientific proof of the energy. The proof is out there en-mass now. My book is in finishing stages for production, I am so excited...Anyway, Gary Schwartz is well worth the read, don't let the dryness push you away the data is amazing!

      Thanks for continuing to inspire and motivate me you are a wonderful friend. amor, luz y bendiciones...Sue

      Very interesting article on energy healing. I always wonder what the colors mean when a picture is taken that shows the aura. I had it done once years ago and I remember mostly purple and white. I wondered how a camera could be capable of taking this type of picture. Good hub.

      Isn't it amazing how even if one knows about energy there is always something more to learn; I like the fluffing the aura by shaking one's hand in upward motion, will try this! When I shower, I like to do Ho'ponopono and chant softly, I feel I am truly having a cleansing experience physically and energy wise.

      BDW, I mentioned in Hypnodude's latest hub, a book I am reading which is a tad dry as I am not into charts and such, but... its very good, and its science proving that energy healing DOES work, they have laboratory results. It entitled "The Energy Healing Experiments- Science Reveals Our Natural Power To Heal" and its written by Dr. Gary Schwartz.

      Thumbs up to this hub too!
