The sad part about energy healing is that it scares some people. Because there’s a tendency to be afraid of things we don’t understand, I’ll attempt to shed some light on this subject.
Energy is all around us. It’s in the air, it’s in plants and animals, it’s in dirt and rocks, it’s in everything. Have you noticed that different places affect your mood differently? Walking along the beach has a different feel than walking into an accounting office. The desert has a different energetic feel than being at a baseball game or a shopping mall. This is because everything we see and feel is a different form of energy. Some makes us feel good and others, not so much.
Even thoughts and feelings are energetic. Just notice what happens to your temperament when you think of someone smiling at you, then notice how it changes when you think of someone angrily glaring at you, and pointing their finger in your face. We can feel the other person’s intentions.
We are affected by, and affect, energy all the time. Energy healing, or “hands on” healing is something we can all do. It’s a natural gift. Like art, some people are more gifted than others, but we all have the capability.
Here’s an experiment to try: Start by rubbing your hands together, quickly, to warm them up. Once they’re warm, rest them on your lap, palms facing up, and imagine what it might feel like if you could let energy move from your heart, down your arms and out your hands. To begin with, pretending is good enough. Then imagine holding a light bulb in each hand, and feeling what it might be like if you could light them up with the energy from your heart.
You may feel little pins and needles in your hands, you may feel them get even warmer, you may feel like you can’t feel the boundary between your hands and the air, and you may feel like sand is pouring out of them.
Next, bring the palms of your hands slowly toward each other, noticing if you can feel the energy of your hands as they get close. Stop when you can feel it, and stay there. That is your energy. Notice how it feels. If you practice, you’ll be able to feel it with your hands farther away. The next step is to do the above, without rubbing your hands together, to remove the element of heat from friction.
As I mentioned earlier, thoughts have energy. Prayer is a beautiful example of this. If someone has good intentions to heal, it’s much like a prayer. If they have this intention while they use beautiful energies, amazing things can happen. I’ve seen it many times.
Energy healing is not something to be afraid of. It’s been practiced for thousands of years. Many Christians, Catholics, Jews and Mormons use a form called, “laying on of hands.”
Skeptics often times claim that any healing that may occur, is simply a placebo effect. To that I say, so what? If I’m feeling bad, and a placebo makes me feel better, it doesn’t change the fact I’m better. If it works, and it comes from good intentions and beautiful energy, isn’t that wonderful?
I’m amazed at the number of energy healers we have in this Valley. If you don’t know of any, start asking around. Chances are, you know someone who does it.
