It was once considered an unfounded, mystical method adopted by charlatans. But with energy healing becoming more mainstream, and interest in holistic practices at an all time high, are you missing out if you’re not using energy healing as a way of living a healthier, happier life?
With numerous approaches including Reiki, Aura cleansing, Chakra balancing, Sound Vibration healing therapy, Theta healing, Pranic healing, Reconnective Healing, Access Bars and Space Clearing, energy healing is an holistic approach that involves the transmission of healing energies to restore and balance the body’s energy field.
These energies can help dissolve any blockages that are present and stimulate the inherent ability of the body to heal itself. After the research of doctors, physicists, and scientists has proven the powerful benefits of energy healing, such is its ability to provide harmony and balance to the physical body as well as to emotional health and overall wellbeing, more and more people are turning to energy healing to address both physical and emotional issues in a nonconventional way.
How Does Energy Healing Work?
In alternative healing, the body is scanned energetically. An illness or a disease indicates that we are ill-at-ease with something that is causing a tremendous drain on the body’s energy reserves. There is a breakdown of the body’s natural defences, the immunity system, which allows for an invasion of toxins, viruses, and bacteria.
Energy healing is based on the belief that the physical body does not create illness, because it can do nothing by itself. The source is located in the unseen issues of the unconscious and subconscious mind, or what science calls “cellular memory”. Dr. Candace Pert, Research Professor at Georgetown University School of Medicine Washington DC, demonstrated that the mind is not confined to the brain. Instead, the mind is a ‘flow of information’ moving between all cells, organs, and systems of the body. This implies the body is no longer separate from the mind and that the body is the mind.
Illness or dis-ease is the body’s way of communicating to us that our way of thinking (although unconscious) is out of harmony with what is beneficial to our being. Illness indicates the need to change our thoughts and belief system and tells us that we have reached our physical and psychological limits.
The benefits of energy healing are numerous: it helps reduce stress levels, improves cardiovascular health, lowers blood pressure, cleanses the body of toxins, supports the immune system, boosts mental clarity and focus, improves sleep quality, accelerates the body’s healing ability, eases muscle tension, clears negative emotions, may help break addictions, heightens intuitive powers and can encourage you to live with a more mindful, considered approach.
Thoughts & Emotions Affect Our Energy
Quantum physicists and physicians are now beginning to highlight the impact of our thoughts and emotions on our physical health and well-being. Research from the Heart Math Institute found that when experiencing feelings of love, joy, and gratitude, people who were ill had a measurable improvement in their health. Their immune system was found to have 300,000 times the amount of resistance.
So how do our thoughts actually influence our physical body?
Thoughts: Everything in the Universe begins with a thought. Thoughts are the root of all creation.
Emotions: Every thought we have generates an emotion we feel.
Energy: Emotions influence our body’s subtle energy field, known as the aura or our chakras.
Physical Body: Our auras and chakras are directly correlated with the endocrine glands of the body, responsible for releasing and regulating the hormones in our body.
As a result, through the chain linking our thoughts-emotions-energy-physical body, our thoughts actually affect our physical body. When we feel happy, our body releases happiness hormones like serotonin, endorphins, and oxytocin. On the other hand, when we feel anxious or worried, our body generates toxins that lower our immunity and starts to cause health issues. Energy healing involves adopting the mind-body connection approach – it begins with healing the thoughts to positively impact the body’s overall health & wellbeing.
