According to the ancient sages, who understood the workings
of the universal life force, we are all born with a certain
amount of energy that flows through us. When this energy is
flowing smoothly all is well but when it is not every aspect
of your life can become out of balance. Understanding and
working with this energy is through to be a big step towards
creating happy, fulfilled and healthy lives.
Many alternative healers, some of who are called energy healers,
work with this energy. Some see it [a form of clairvoyance],
others feel it [clairsentience]. The field of energy is referred
to as an aura - a vibrating field of energy that pulses around
and through the body at all times.
Virbational healers work with the auric field and focus on
repairing, balancing, changing and clearing the energy field
on many levels: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
Whether they are healing or energy balancing involves the
laying on of hands, healing touch or faith healing they all
involve the idea that the healer and patient are somehow connected
on a higher vibrational plane, possibly psychic, that opens
an inflow of healing energy to the patient.
This is a powerful element or aspect of what I achieve with
individuals though allowing the connection to all aspects
of self - both in this plane and other planes - so that the
flow of expression, achievement can come forth.
Technique that uses mental images and affirmations to produce
positive change within a person. It is thought that the ability
to make pictures in the mind can lead to an improved self-image,
a greater sense of purpose, better health and can help a person
obtain other personal goals.
Visualisation has formed a part of religious practices for
centuries but it only became popular in the West when Shakti
Gawain published 'Creative Visualisation' in 1977. Gewains
belief that people can use their imagination to help them
achieve life goals soon spread beyond esoteric circles into
Solid research has shown that visualisation works. The scientists
aren't sure why but those who study the effect of the mind
on health have found visualisation to be particularly beneficial
in fighting certain diseases. A particular form of visualisation
called guided imagery is increasingly being used in psychotherapy
and medicine, especially for treating people suffering from
stress, anxiety and/or life threatening illnesses.
The technique of visualisation is simple. First, find a quiet
place where you can relax and concentrate. Then construct
a detailed mental picture of whatever situation you want to
change and/or improve. Then imagine the desired outcome. Think
of this outcome as if it were already happening. You may also
choose to repeat a positive phrase or affirmation that you
will attain your goal. The technique should be repeated for
days, weeks, months or years until the goal is achieved.
One simple visualisation for general wellbeing and stress
reduction is to first quite yourself and, after taking some
deep breathes, to visualise yourself inhaling golden or white
light/energy, and exhaling grey, stale, old energy. The white
or golden light represents new, fresh, rejuvenating energy,
when the grey energy represents any stress, unhappiness, worries,
anger or other negative emotions you may be holding inside
of you. This visualisation is a great way to release the stress
and tension of the day and give yourself more energy.
If you have a specific ailment you are trying to relieve yourself
of, visualise the same white or golden energy surrounding
the area of your body that is in need of healing. Focus on
that white or golden light/energy healing and energizing that
area of your body. Try to repeat this procedure daily or multiple
times daily if you feel compelled to do so. As always, do
what feels right for you.
