Energy Healing Explained
As we launch Omni Light Energy Healing, it's a great time to explain what energy healing is and show you how you can tap into energy on your own.
This is probably the most common question people can ask about energy healing; what is it exactly? I was in this boat too once. I had been to a Reiki therapist several times and in all honesty, I still didn’t understand what it was or what it was supposed to be doing for me. It was just a relaxing experience that I enjoyed.
It wasn’t until I started playing around with energy out of curiosity, that the pieces of the puzzle started to come together for me. As it turns out, anyone can feel energy for themselves as we all have natural healing abilities, whether we are aware of it or not.
So rather than tell you what energy healing is, I’m going to guide you through it so you can feel energy for yourself. It’s easy and you don’t need any prior experience or training to be able to do this.
Tips before you get started:
If you can’t visualise anything, just pretend you can. As though you are a child pretending that you’re on an adventure. Just pretend.
Stay amused through this too as it will increase the flow of energy for you; over thinking, wondering if you’re doing it properly and trying to ‘see’ something will limit what you experience.
If you can’t ‘see’ or visualise anything, it’s not important. You may sense, feel or simply know that it’s happening and that’s fine too! We are all different, so however this shows up for you is perfect.
Sit quietly where you won’t be disturbed for about five minutes and close your eyes. Take a few deep breaths; inhale from your belly, ribs and then chest and then exhale chest, exhale ribs, exhale belly.
Imagine you are sitting right behind your eye lids looking out, like you are in a lighthouse looking out at the ocean. As you do this, call back all your thoughts, feelings, conversations and moments with other people to you. Just pretend you can see pieces of information flowing back to you. However this shows up for you is just perfect.
Imagine that a beam of light from the base of your spine (root chakra) moves through your chair, floor, layers of dirt, rock, lava and connects with a very bright white light in the center of the planet. Enjoy this connection for a moment.
Next, imagine, very high up in space, there is a beam of white light heading towards you. As it flows down to you, it enters the top of your head (crown chakra), into the center of your forehead (3rd eye), into your throat, down each arm and out your hands. See, sense, feel or know that this light is flowing into you for a few moments.
Bring your hands together, palms facing each other, about 15cm apart. You can have your eyes open at this stage if you prefer.
Imagine that the light from space is building up between your hands, forming a ball of white light.
As you imagine this ball of light, you can move the palms of your hands closer together and then further apart to see what it feels like.
Try making the ball bigger and let it fill with more light. Then do the opposite, see how small you can make the ball of light now that there is more light inside it. Notice what it feels like for you.
That’s it! You have successfully channelled source energy through the chakras in the palms of your hands and used your intention to create a ball of light.
You may have felt heat and some tingling in your hands (known as biki biki in Japan) and the ball of energy may have felt bouncy. This is how I experience the energy ball; bouncy like a balloon filled with air.
That is energy. Energy healers can be attuned to different energy frequencies, like I have, which basically means they can call in specific energies to channel through their hands. Other energies perform a range of functions and purposes such as shifting blocked energy stored in your body. Energy healers use their intention to move the energy they are channelling; in the same way you used your intention to create a ball of energy between your hands.
Now that you have felt energy on your own, that is a very basic way to understand what an energy healer does. There is more to it from an energy healer perspective and the abilities of each practitioner are really based on their own awareness, consciousness, personal skills and strengths.
Every energy healer will have a knack for something unique and every healer most definitely experiences, interprets and is guided to use energy differently by their guides compared to another energy healer. No two are the same. There are an infinite number of ways to experience and use energy and there are no limitations other than the ones we place on ourselves. I, however, believe there’s no glass ceiling.
If you’re wondering what you can do with the ball of energy you created, I’d love to hear from you! If you’re confident in your playful, pretend state, then you can let your imagination and inner guidance inform you of your next steps.
Have fun! Many blessings!
