The lotus flower grows in the mud. That’s right — the most beautiful flower we know grows in an unappealing environment. How does it do it? It is part of its DNA — the flower is programmed to bloom.
It's an inspiring reminder that it doesn’t matter what you grew up in — be it divorce, abuse, or uncertainty — you, too, are programmed to blossom. But first you just have to clear away all that "muddy" energy stored in your body.
Every thought, deed or action you have done and has been done to you, is imprinted into your energy field or aura.
As you ruminate and get stuck in negative thought patterns, you bring that energy closer and closer into your physical body. These thought patterns then create neural pathways in your brain. This often manifests as physical, emotional or mental pain.
But what if you could clear the issues from your tissues? What if you could rewire your thinking to more positive thoughts and blossom into who you really are at your core?
Energy healing therapy can clear the “mud” off of your energy field. You can and will blossom into who you were always meant to be!
Here are five ways energy healing can benefit you:
1. It releases energy blockages so you feel energetically lighter and happier.
Everything in the universe vibrates, including people. We are vibrating energy bundles. Energy healers help to pull out stagnant and stuck energy — after just one session, you'll feel more expansive and blissful. More often than not, you probably won't even realize you're carrying around all that lower energy until it's cleared away.
2. It clears stress and tension to allow deep relaxation.
Stress is just not felt in our heads, but in our entire bodies. Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), or tapping, is an effective way to help you calm down. By stimulating acupressure points of the meridians we're communicating to our brain that it is safe to relax.
3. It accelerates the body’s natural ability to heal itself and increases vitality.
Energy healing is a great complement to traditional medical practices and should not be used to the exclusion of allopathic medicine. One way that energy healers can support you is by being conduits of universal energy. Energy healers open themselves up as a channel to bring life force into the client’s body. This energy is thought you trigger your own healing system.
4. It can help with acute injuries, chronic health issues and relieve pain.
The body’s natural state is health and vibrancy. It automatically knows how to heal itself. This incredible intelligence works independently of your mind. Dis-ease in the body often shows us what needs work and what we still need to learn. Because energy flows to where attention goes, it is a powerful force. Energy healing activates and energizes the body’s natural ability to heal. Lower back pain can be a physical manifestation of fear, related to survival issues. Clearing the Root Chakra and kidneys of these blocks can bring much-needed relief over time.
5. It helps clear negative emotional and mental thought patterns.
Unexpressed emotions can get stuck in the body tissue. Ruminating over what happened in the past and feeling anxiety over the future creates what yogis call “chitta vrittis,” or monkey chatter in the brain. When this chatter goes on and on, without your taking time to meditate or calm the mind, creates a blockage.
I liken this block to a little dam, in what should be a flowing river of energy. When energy can't flow through that area effectively, we often feel stuck and wonder if we could ever rid ourselves of these thoughts and feelings.
