Energy Healers: What Exactly Do They Do?
So what does an “energy healer” do? First of all, let’s see what an energy healer is.
An energy healer is a practitioner of an ancient type of healing art. This healing art has been known for thousands of years to many of the ancient civilizations that have lived and thrived on this planet in the past.
If we look at the cultures of today, especially in the East, we can see that much of this knowledge has been retained and is still widely used in their health systems.
The best known cultures that use this form of healing are the Chinese and Indian cultures.
In later posts we will delve into the science and concepts of this healing art, but essentially and Energy Healer is someone who has knowledge and 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-harmonize the patient in a variety of ways by cleansing and then revitalizing these foundational energies.
This fundamental energy is known as “life force energy” and ancient cultures such as “Chi” in China and “Prana” in India have given it many other names. (Again, in later posts we will delve into these concepts and ideas of life force energy, the human energy system, and the science behind it all.) However for this post I just wanted to explain an overview of what the Energy Healer understands and works.
As I mentioned, there are a variety of ways that Energy Healers can work with these fundamental energies of the human system and as such many different “healing modalities” have been developed over time to address disease or ” diseases “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 lines of energy that run through the body and distribute energy where it is needed in an orderly manner.
Reiki works with the energy body as a whole to transfer revitalized energy from the healer to the patient through a variety of invocations and concentration techniques.
– Pranic healing
Pranic Healing works in a similar way to Reiki, but has a slightly deeper understanding of the energy body, in the sense that the energy body must first be cleansed before the revitalized energy is transferred to the patient. This developed from a variety of techniques such as Medical Qi Gong and others.
These are just three of the best known, most efficient modalities and with a trace throughout history.
So an energy healer is someone who has a knowledge of the energy system. A good energy healer will normally be a very kind, appreciative and loving person, this is because in ancient spiritual knowledge there is something called “Purification”. This is the process of withdrawing oneself from things that do not help the person on the path to self-realization.
A healer generally works with these principles because the more “pure” you are (as in, the less congestion there is in the mind, body, and energies), the greater the healer’s ability to heal the patient, as the energies transferred will be much More powerful. You can imagine the flow of water through a pipe. If the pipe is clean and clear, the water will flow without interruptions, but if the pipe is dirty and clogged, it will be much more difficult for the water to flow through it. That is the idea behind purification.
Thanks for reading and I hope this has helped you understand a little better what energetic healers do.
