I'm often asked, "What the hell is energy healing?"
This is a good question. As much as I'd love to go into the science of it, I really don't want to…because I hate the science of it. I've read articles and watched YouTube videos supporting and debunking energy healing. Let me tell you this instead.
I've seen some crazy stuff over the years, from when I was studying energy to my practice with clients. I've seen people change and grow from energy sessions, including myself.
So, I will tell you what I know about energy healing.
Everything is made of energy, including our bodies. That's because everything is made of atoms. If you think about what the solar system looks like, that is pretty much how an atom looks. Atoms are like our solar system in that there is a center like the sun called a nucleus, made of protons and neutrons. And like the planets in our solar system, an atom has electrons that circle the nucleus. Everything is made up of atoms, including you and the electronic device you are reading on right now. So, if you want to get really trippy, what if our solar system is just a tiny atom in some other giant structure? For all we know, we are the tiny weeny bits of a stuffed animal in a different dimension.
But I digress. Sorry. We were talking about energy.
Think about all the empty space in an atom. And think about the energy of those electrons swirling around the nucleus. That's a lot of space and a lot of energy. So I believe that our bodies are made up of the energy of all these atoms. We can't see the atoms. Therefore, we can't technically see the energy.
But I believe we can feel it.
For example, think about a time when you met someone, and you could tell they were attracted to you. That's energy. Or think about all the times we say, "The energy changed in the room," meaning the mood shifted. We feel that.
The other day I was at a hockey game, and the crowd was going wild. The guy behind me said, "I'm lovin' the energy in here!" And then the visiting team scored on the home team and then scored again. Yeah, the energy of the crowd changed.
We can instinctively read energy. We also collect energy as we move throughout our day-to-day lives. It can be energy from our moods, and it can be energy from other people. Sometimes it is negative energy. As that negative energy collects, it bogs down our natural energy. It's like our vision and natural state get covered in fog. We can't see clearly what direction we need to go. We can't listen to our own gut reactions because the negativity clouds them.
This is where I come into the picture.
I start every energy session by feeling the energy surrounding the client. I read the energy, tell them what it is, and then remove it. I remove layers until the client's energy field starts to feel healthy again. At the end of the session, I fill them up with good energy. People often say they feel lighter after a session, and often they glow a bit.
People usually come for energy sessions when they feel stuck in life or don't know what direction to go. Others come when they are in a toxic relationship and have a hard time leaving. Some people regularly come just to have any negative energy they may have picked up scraped off, like a regular tune-up. During sessions, sometimes a pattern or life view reveals itself. These patterns cause the person to make the same mistakes over and over. Sometimes what is happening in their life is explained so they can see the lesson behind it, giving them the ability to view the situation differently, more healingly.
People will come to me for one reason and underneath that is the real issue they have been struggling with but haven't told anyone. I've sensed that people have been raped or molested as a child. I've felt that someone has been punched in the face repeatedly by an abusive lover. I've sensed how nasty some people's parents are to them. I've sensed the deep grief someone feels over a lost parent.
All of these traumas become cell memories in the body. Cell memories are negative energy locked into the body. When I was in massage school, we were trained on what to do if someone suddenly freaked out during a massage because a cell memory was released. For example, a war veteran may have a memory release; the next thing, they have jumped off the table and are in the corner of the room in a defensive position. Thank goodness that has never happened to me.
I only have one rule with clients. You have to want the session. I had a woman call me to make an appointment for her boyfriend. She said he was afraid of getting married. I asked, "Does he WANT to have a session?" "Oh yeah!" she said.
He so didn't want a session. The guy was obviously there to make his girlfriend happy. It didn't change his mind about marriage. He wasn't afraid of marriage. He didn't want to get married. A month later, his girlfriend came in for a session. That was a much more effective session.
Sometimes a person comes once, and I never see them again. I figure they didn't like the session. Six months later, a referral from that person will contact me, saying I helped that person so much, and they are hoping I can help them.
And I'm sure some people I only saw once didn't like the session. Maybe I wasn't the right person for them. There are many styles of energy healing out there, just as there are many styles of massage. Don't give up if you have one energy session and don't like it. Maybe you haven't found the right person for you.
I wouldn't do this work if I didn't believe in it. It has helped me immensely, and I believe it has helped my clients immensely. If you are stuck on your healing journey, energy work is a great way to remove the blocks and move you forward. It helps remove layers, gives you some insight, and boosts you to move forward.
I hope this opened your world up to energy healing. Or at least cracked the door a bit. If you have questions, please feel free to contact me, or schedule a free 30 minute consultation ! I’m here to help!
