I can tell you that anything that happens in the physical body will happen in the pattern of the energy fields first
The body is a self-healing organism, so it's really about clearing things out of the way so the body can heal itself-Barbara Brennan
There are so many healing modalities and each has its share of devoted followers who swear by them. The healing techniques with their origin in the East mostly follow similiar basic principles. There is an initiation or an attunement by a master or guru and you are taught a set of techniques.They can all be clubbed under Energy Healing though they may have other names..Reiki,Pranic Healing,Theta Healing and so on. I always want solutions and I am ready to try any method if it gives results. I found too many good masters and teachers not open about healing techniques other than their own. If they were to just open up their horizons and limited concepts they would see the common ground they share. I like to simplify things back them up with research or undergo it experentially and not follow any one discipline to the T. As it is alternative healing is looked at very dubiously and by dividing into so many kinds we seem to be losing more credibility.
I have come to the realisation that energy or prana is in abundance and we cannot patent or copyright it under any name. We were born perfect and as babies we could tap into this abundant energy.As we were conditioned by our parents( and they before us) and society we lost this ability till our chakras were either blocked or under functioning. To unlearn and be like that child would be our true healing. To dance like a child, laugh without inhibitions, be in nature and connect with its vastness would be the most natural things to do yet so rare in these stressed times. That is why we need a healer. The healer is only a channel for that universal energy, they have no special powers..You also have that within you..you just need to remove the clutter within..simplify and be like a child.
Many healers themselves fall ill undergo operations for conditions they heal. Why would this happen you wonder. This is because they are not able to transmute the diseased energy they are healing in people. Most of the time we think we are doing the healing and function from our egos.. This does not allow the universal energy to come in and we actually use our own energies and feel depleted. To surrender to the vast sea of energy,to be a hollow flute and produce music in the hands of the great musician..is the key.
All of us can learn to be aware of this energy if we are aware. A small example of this would be ..if u tap a depressed person on his shoulders he may not respond..whereas if he s joy ful he will feel your presence even as you approach him from behind. His aura is contracted in the former case and expanded in the latter case. To sense the flow of energy we have to be sensitized to the subtle sensations. In meditation and yoga awareness is taught and this opens up your perception of the subtle sensations. As you grow more sensitized to this you feel the heat, prickly , creepy or rushing sensations of energy engulfing you or coursing through your body. If you learn a healing discipline it helps to feel the aura and the energy flowing through your hands. We have to learn this as we have lost the ability to be aware of our own bodies and the the wonders it can work. Observing a child is enough to get us back to the original state. Most children under 5 are in high energy states.
Just like the sufis whirl, children do it too...we stop them from doing this. This helps them to correct energetic imbalances and connect to the source. Watch dogs, how they shake themselves sometimes. They just re-adjust their aura. Yet we do not know why we feel tired in the company of some people..and energised by someone else s presence. If you observe subtle changes in your energy levels you will be amazed at how we are influenced by the energy around us, the energy of our thoughts and the food we eat. That is the reason why the in India so much stress is put on kind of food..High energy and low energy foods and there is no emphasis on vitamins,carbs etc. This is because the realisation was at a subtle energetic level and not at the physical level. As the energy body affects the physical...it would be essential to pay more attention to our energy levels.
A simple exercise to protect your aura if you are in the presence of energy draining people is to imagine a cocoon of light ( any colour) around you. also rub your hands together..feel the heat and energy between your palms..till you can feel a ball of energy..now smooth it over your body as if your filling your aura so that there are no leaks or breaks through which energy can escape.
