A Comprehensive Guide to Energy Healing

Featured on The Essential Life

What is Energy Healing?

Your energy we are working on during an energetic healing session, is the vital energy, bio energy & electromagnetic field, as named in the western science & philosophy.

In other traditional cultures this same energy that moves through, gives life to & animates all living things is named:

chi or qi in Chinese culture

khí in Vietnamese culture

gi in Korean culture

ki in Japanese culture

Maban in Aboriginal culture

prana in Hinduism and in Indian culture

chi in the Igbo religion

pneuma in ancient Greece

mana in Hawaiian culture

lüng in Tibetan Buddhism

manitou in the culture of the indigenous peoples of the Americas

ruah in Jewish culture

vital energy in Western philosophy

Qi literally translates as "breath", "air", or "gas", & figuratively as "material energy", "life force", or "energy flow". Qi is the central underlying fundamental principle in traditional Chinese medicine & martial arts.

We intuitively name this when we say “My energy is really low today” or “I am full of energy!”

What is the Science Behind Energetic Healing?

Energy Healing is now used in more than 200 hospitals & clinics throughout the United States & Reiki education is offered free of charge in more than 800 American Hospitals as a means to accelerate the healing process & to alleviate pain.

An energy healer has been “attuned” by a teacher or master to be able to act as a conductor of high vibrational energy (Chi, qi, vital energy & so on, as mentioned above) & to channel it through to a recipient.

In the 1970’s scientific experiments conducted by Dr. William. A. Tiller found that when we measure the bio-electricity in the nervous system (voltage output) of a person, it has interestingly shown;

A person who is unwell or depressed - 5 -30 mvs (a mv is 1, 1000th of a volt)

A person who is fine and well - 30 – 50 mvs

A person who is bursting with joy & vitality - up to 100 mvs

An energetic healer during a healing session - 100- 250 volts - That’s 1000 - 2,500 times higher than a vibrant, healthy person!

"For the last four hundred years, an unstated assumption of science is that human intention cannot affect what we call 'physical reality.' Our experimental research of the past decade shows that, for today's world & under the right conditions, this assumption is no longer correct. We humans are much more than we think we are and Psychoenergetic Science continues to expand the proof of it." ~ Dr. William. A. Tiller, founder of the Institute of Psychoenergetic Science

There is a huge body of scientific research & information demonstrating the effectiveness of Energetic Healing as a viable treatment for physical & emotional dis-ease. One book that is fascinating, if you are interested to learn more, is “The Energy Healing Experiments” By Gary. E. Schwartz.

What are the Benefits of Energy Healing?

The benefits of Energy Healing are not limited & can help any individual in healing, balancing & restoring Wellness on every level.

For some examples, my clients enjoy Energy Healing sessions to help them with anxiety, depression, physical pain, heart break, stress management, help with physical illness, fertility, enhance their intuition, to relieve feelings of stuck or lost & to maintain wellness, balance & for general maintenance of health & happiness.

Some benefits include (but are not limited to, as the benefits are limitless!);

Accelerated physical healing from illness or injury

Enhanced sense of peace & calm

Enhanced level of contentment & confidence

Enhanced intuitive ability & creative problem solving

• Improved sleep & energy levels

• Improved harmony & coherence in private & professional relationship’s

• Reduced stress, anxiety or depression

• Increased clarity of thought & ability to focus

• Improved immune, endocrine & nervous system function

• Enhanced fertility & more ease of conception

• Increased happiness

• Deep relaxation is experienced & decluttering of accumulated thoughts

• Which helps to reduce or even reverse the negative effects of stress

• Increased ability to attract your soul mate

• Increased ability to manifest deliberately

• Reduce confusion, discontent or heal a broken heart

It does this by releasing stored stress & emotions, causing blocked or stagnant energy which ultimately contributes to & causes illnesses & disharmony in the body, mind & spirit.

In Eastern medicine & philosophy the energy systems of the body are commonly accepted knowledge & are the primary focus in taking care of their health & maintaining daily, preventative health measures as well as treating major & chronic illnesses.

This knowledge & wisdom has been carried forward for thousands of years.

In the western world, it is generally lesser known & not as commonly considered in many peoples Self Care regimes. I am hoping to help change this & have energy healing & balancing become more “main stream” in our society so everyone can feel more happy, healthy & whole, more of the time!!
