So what does an “Energy Healer” do? Firstly, let’s look at what an Energy Healer is.
An Energy Healer is a practitioner of an ancient type of healing art. This healing art has been known about for thousands of years by many of the ancient civilisations that have lived and thrived on this planet in the past.
If we look at cultures today, especially in the East, we can see that much of this knowledge has been retained and is still greatly used in their healthcare systems.
The most well known cultures that utilise this form of healing is the Chinese and Indian cultures.
In later posts we shall dig deeper into the science and concepts of this healing art, but essentially and Energy Healer is someone who has a knowledge of and who works with the fundamental energies of the human system. These energies are the basis for the creation and functioning of all other cells and organs in the system. I say system because the human entity is more than just the physical body.
By working with these energies, an Energy Healer can help re-harmonise the patient in a range of ways by cleansing and then revitalising these fundamental energies.
This fundamental energy is known as “life-force energy” and has been given many other names by ancient cultures such as “Chi” in China and “Prana” in India. (Again, in later posts we shall get deeper into these concepts and ideas of life-force energy, the human energy system and the science behind it all). For this post though I just wanted to explain an overview of what the Energy Healer understands and works with.
As I mentioned, there are a range of ways in which Energy Healers can work with these fundamental energies of the human system and as such many different “healing modalities” have developed over time to address the diseases or “dis-eases” and disorders of the human system.
Some of the most common are:
Acupuncture works with the meridians of the energy system, which are the fine energy lines that run through the body and distribute energy to where it is needed in an orderly fashion.
Reiki works with the energy body as a whole to transfer revitalised energy from the healer to the patient through a range of invocations and concentration techniques.
– Pranic Healing
Pranic Healing works similar to Reiki, but has a slightly deeper understanding of the energy body, in that the energy body must first be cleaned before revitalised energy is transferred into the patient. This was developed from a range of techniques such as Medical Qi Gong and others.
These are just three of the most well known, efficient and modalities with a trace through history.
So an Energy Healer is someone who has an understanding of the energy system. A good energy healer will normally be a very kind, grateful and loving person, this is because in ancient spiritual knowledge there is such a thing called “Purification.” This is the process of removing oneself from things that do not assist the person on the path to self realisation.
A healer generally works on these principles because the more “pure” you are (as in, the less congestion there is in the mind, body and energies) the greater the ability for the healer to heal the patient, as the energies transferred will be much more potent. You can imagine the flow of water through a pipe. If the pipe is clean and clear, the water will flow uninterrupted, but if the pipe os dirty and clogged, it will be much harder for the water to flow through it. That is the idea behind purification.
Thank you for reading and I hope this has helped you understand a little better what Energy Healers do.
