Trying really, really hard is practically in my genes. Here’s how I was raised: To try is good; to try harder is better. Always.
But with energy healing or energy work (as with many things in life), trying hard isn’t the best way. In fact, trying hard can get in the way. Trying hard often creates resistance.
When we’re doing energy healing or energy work, in most cases the energy we use shouldn’t be ours. We shouldn’t be pouring our energies into another person, or pushing our intellects to figure out a plan of treatment, or tensing our physical bodies to try to make something happen.
In most forms of energy healing or energy work, the more we can relax and let the energy come through us, the better. The more we can let intuitive information come to us, rather than reaching out for it, the better. The more we can quiet our mind and be receptive, the better.
Energy Healing Works Best In When You Are Still
So let the intuitive information come to you; let the energy come through you. Quiet your mind, stop pushing with it, and let go of attachments to particular outcomes.
In other words: don’t try too hard. You can trust the energy to go where it needs to go and do what it needs to do. You can trust that you will receive the information you need to know. You can relax.
This approach can work in any part of your life, not just energy healing or energy work. Try it! (Just not too hard).
So what is this “energy” that we’re talking about healing?
It’s not as esoteric as you may think. In fact, it surrounds you and embraces youinvisible, like the air you breathe, and just as real.Also called prana, chi, ki, and qi, it is the life force that is the basis and animating power for the universe and everything in it. It surrounds us, permeates us, sustains us, and connects us to all things everywhere, visible and invisible.
It’s like the ocean, with each of us like a drop of water-part of the ocean and yet at the same time, in some circumstances, separate. To put it another way, everyone and everything has its own energy field, which is both part of the larger, universal field, and in some ways separate from it.
You may think that this intangible force or field is something that can be perceived and understood and influenced by only a few gifted people–but that’s not the case. You constantly experience it and interact with it:
- When you walk into someone’s home and instantly do or don’t like the way it feels.
- When you’re in a forest, and have a feeling of deep peace and renewal.
- When you put your arm around a troubled friend, and he or she feels better.
- When you speak up and bring calm and reason back to a group that has become angry and irrational.
- When you liven up a dull party.
It’s everywhere, as common–and as miraculous–as the air we breathe, the light of the sun and stars, the love of our family and friends.Yet it can be difficult for people to entertain, let alone grasp, the concept of this invisible field.
How Do We Know Energy Is Real?
After all, we can’t see it or touch it–so how do we know it’s real It just makes sense when you think about your own experience.
And more than that, it has been measured and documented extensively with scientific instruments.
Explaining Non-Local Experiences from an Energetic Perspective
A related issue is that of non-local experiences or consciousness. Non-local experiences — things that we experience even though we are not physically present in space and/or time, or awareness/consciousness that comes to us from something other than our physical senses — are far from rare.
These experiences can include hunches, clairvoyance (and clairaudience and clairsentience), premonitions, synchronistic events, precognitive dreams, intuition, telepathy, remote viewing and distant healing (energy work). They can occur while you’re awake, asleep, or in the state between sleeping and waking.
But as common and downright normal as non-local experiences are, they can be confusing, disorienting and difficult to make sense of, because they conflict with our conventional model of reality. But viewed from the perspective of energy healing or energy work, they make sense.
It’s the reason that Distance Healing works so well, because distance is an illusion. We live in a Universe where all things are in all places always. By using my intention and a few other simple ingredients I can facilitate the healing of you from the other side of the world just the same way as if you were in the room with me.
Whether you have a dis-ease, illness, injury, trouble relationships, a business that needs life breathed into it – regardless of what you want to enhance in your life, energy healing can elevate you and your life.
