Energy healing literally changed my life. I first went for reiki treatment when I was suffering from an eating disorder and ill health. It helped me get clarity about what I wanted to do. It raised my vibration and raised my consciousness. It gave me the power to leave victim consciousness. It gave me the strength in finding my own self-worth, self-confidence, self-esteem and self-respect. It empowered me because it taught me to empower myself!
So how does energy healing actually do this? We ARE energetic beings and everything IS energy. Scientists have proven this to be true and this article is not about proving this fact. To keep this as simplistic as possible, we have an invisible energy body surrounding our physical body. In this energy body, there are layers. Each layer has different functions and each layer is associated with a different chakra and each chakra and layer both have an effect on areas of the physical body. The chakras and acupuncture points are openings for energy to flow into and out of the aura (energy body). This energy is associated with a form of consciousness, thus we experience the exchange of energy in the forms of seeing, hearing, feeling, sensing, intuiting or direct knowing. It is important to open the chakras and increase our energy flow, because the more energy we let flow, the healthier we are. Illness in the system is caused by an imbalance of energy or a blocking of the flow of energy. In other words, a lack of flow in the human energy system eventually leads to disease. It also distorts our perceptions and dampens our feelings and therefore interferes with a happy experience of living a joyful life.
So what causes an imbalance or block in the flow of energy? The majority of people today have been conditioned to react to unpleasant experiences by blocking our feelings and emotions which stops a great deal of our natural energy flow. An example of this, a person is rejected many times when she tries to show her love to another, she eventually stops showing her love by trying to stop the inner feelings of love. In order to do this, she will have to stop the energy flow through the heart chakra. When the energy flow is stopped or slowed down, the development of the heart chakra is affected. Eventually, a physical problem will very likely result if the energy does not start to flow smoothly again.
This same process works for all the chakras. Whenever a person blocks whatever experiences she is having, she in turn blocks her chakras, which blocks the flow of universal life force energy. Disrupted, weakened, blocked or imbalances in the chakras can all be caused from many situations occurring in our lives, such as:
😢 emotional or physical trauma
😢 negative self-talk
😢 nutritional depletion
😢 destructive lifestyle and relationships
😢 neglect of self and lack of love for oneself or others
😢 from emotions that are not expressed in a healthy way
😢 childhood traumas
😢 cultural conditioning
😢 limited belief system
😢 bad habits
😢 or even just a lack of attention all contribute to blockage.
Difficulties abound in life, for each one of us, and we develop a coping strategy. If these difficulties persist, these coping strategies become chronic patterns, anchored in the body and psyche as defence structures. It is important to recognize the blocks we carry, find and understand their source then heal them.
Reiki or other forms of energy healing is excellent for healing any physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues. Long term practice of whole-body energy healing will restore the general condition of the body. It will open the energy channels and this will allow the body to deal properly and naturally with stress and the build-up of toxins along with coping with anxiety and depression.

My experience is that energy healing works.
It changes you from the inside out. The main thing to remember is that body, mind and soul together with the energy body, are one indivisible whole. These simple, non-invasive healing practices work with the Higher Self of the receiver (person) to promote health and well being of the entire physical, emotional, mental and spiritual body. When it is combined with the sincere and talented healer, a total healing can occur.
A total NEW you will, in time, emerge!
