Whate is Energy Healing?

Energy isn’t something most people can see, yet those of us who have been beneficiaries of it or work in the spiritual and healing arts recognize that it works. But, is it merely an anecdotal or placebo effect? We are all taught that if something isn’t tangible, it can’t exist. If we don’t understand it, our ego wants us to dismiss it. The issue with this paradigm is that it severely limits our growth in every way. While healthy skepticism serves its place, we must remain open minded and be willing to seek education on those things we don’t understand. Fortunately, modern science has and continues to prove that not only does the human energy field exist, but energy fields surrounding all living things are present through the study of electromagnetic fields, biophotons, quantum physics, and scientific research in other domains such as experiments with plants and water.

The short answer? "Energy Healing" is an umbrella term for any therapy or healing art in which the human energy field/circuits are manipulated to bring about balance and facilitate the body’s innate healing ability. It is in this way that energy healing modalities such as Reiki, acupuncture, chakra balancing, qi-gong, acupressure, crystal/stone, sound/vibrational, shamanic healing and others can facilitate healing. For more information on what energy healing is and how it works, check my class, "Energy Healing Demystified."

What is Shamanic Energy Medicine?

According to modern physicists, all of reality can be described as vibrations and waveform patterns, light and information. If we look at the basic components of what makes up our physical bodies, we realize that we are made up of atoms, and based on quantum physics those atoms are really just packets of energy. Biological information fields form an active, constantly resonating matrix. So, in other words, our bodies are constructed from trillions upon trillions of packets of energy. What both ancient indigenous cultures and many modern-day healers know is that working with the energetic systems of our being have a MUCH greater effect on our health than simply focusing on "correcting" symptoms of the physical body. The ancient shamanic traditions describe an energy field that surrounds the human body. It is within this "luminous energy field" that the memories of our genetics, karma, life experiences and even ancestral wounds are stored. These imprints and memories propel our life in a certain direction by attracting people, situations,  behaviors and experiences to us.

As an example, imagine a tree growing over decades from a small twig into a big and tall tree. If the twig has been exposed to no trauma, it will grow into a straight and mighty tree with no knots, bends, twists, or rough spots. However, if the twig or immature tree gets stepped on, bent, or otherwise injured, it substantially changes the growth of the tree forever, and with little effort. 

We are like the tree. However, as we were growing up we received traumas, betrayals, wounds, programming and judgment from others. Then, we actually continued to perpetuate those hurts so we could grow in a way to please these others. Every time a parent (teacher/authority figure, etc.) said “No!” to our spontaneous arising of energy, we had to begin denying that part of our self to assure that we would be liked by the adults around us. As a young "twig" this was the only way to survive: by creating patterns of behavior that kept us safe in the presence of others. 

As adults, we are still running these patterns, but they were constructed by a child - and they really don’t work in an adult world. It takes a tremendous amount of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual energy to maintain these “safety-providing” and self-denying programs. Over time, this energy expenditure results in the breakdown of the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual systems. This breakdown results in disease and dysfunction at all four of these levels.

🔥Here are a few ways these levels of distress may have leave you susceptible to illness:

  •  Loss of soul essence which can occur during trauma such as the death of a loved one, loss of a partnership or friend, loss of a home, surgery, abusive relationships, accidents etc. This can result in dissociation, feeling as though something is missing, depression, PTSD, and negative coping or compulsive behaviours in an attempt to fill the internal void.

  •  Loss of your personal power and protection which may manifest as chronic illness, depression, anxiety, fearfulness, or ongoing misfortune.

 •   Collection of energies that do not belong with you, by way of interference and intrusive blocks resulting in localized pain, confused thinking, a sense of being stuck in life, a feeling of being overshadowed.

🔥Here are a few other reasons why someone might decide to seek assistance from a shamanic healer:

   • To remove feelings of being blocked or stuck in life

   • To foster a greater sense of personal power and freedom in life

  •  To promote a healthy self-esteem and emotional balance

 •   To build a feeling of connection to your deep self and to the natural world

 •   To assist in creating more love and abundance in your life

 •   To generate your creative and/or spiritual, intuitive gifts more fully-- and even make a living doing them

 •   A desire to be more joyful, healthful and peaceful!

The work that I provide helps facilitate the release of these ineffective patterns allowing the energy bound within them to be freed up. By releasing these imprints, memories, and attachments, you will be able to break free of old patterns and consciously create every moment of your life from a position of clarity, fluidity, abundance, joy, passion, and beauty.🔥
