Have you ever been to an energy healer?
If you’ve ever seen a brilliant counsellor, gifted massage therapist, devoted yoga teacher or compassionate family doctor, you’ve been in the presence of an energy healer. That’s right, energy healing is not just the domain of Reiki masters, acupuncturists, kinesiologists or other practitioners with varied certifications such as Quantum Touch, The Bars, Feldenkrais, Bowen Therapy… The list is long. I’ll cut to the chase.
Here’s my humbly proposed definition of energy healing:
Energy healing happens in any interaction where there is the presence of genuine empathy, love, compassion and the intention to be of assistance. This effect is enhanced when there is no attachment to a specific outcome or to a rigid idea of success for all involved.
(Our pets are marvelous energy healers)
When more than nine years ago I began my studies in kinesiology, I was unconvinced that this was the right path for me. I knew that I loved receiving the benefits of kinesiology, but the decision to study it felt more like stepping onto a barely-discernible path of vague possibility rather than striding confidently onto a smooth road of career certainty. But hey, most of my study choices have felt like that.
When I chose psychology for my second university degree, it was only after failing to get into a course in occupational therapy and then exploring options as varied as nutrition, speech pathology, health promotion and social work that I finally and fairly half-heartedly settled for psych. But then, that was more than twenty years ago….anyone else have any idea what they wanted to do when they were 22?
The purpose of this tale is twofold. Firstly, I want to demystify what it is that I do, because amid the constantly evolving range of techniques and processes I use, what I’m essentially tapping into is a calm field – or channel if you like – of healing energy, that we all have access to.
We can all feel it when healing energy is present in an exchange with another person and it feels good to both parties. That’s another secret I want to share: When we access this type of energy, the healing flows both ways. The giver is the receiver and vice versa. Nice huh?
What I’m saying is that when I do my work, I’m recruiting divine assistance and accessing a wellspring of higher intelligence and healing powers beyond the physical realm.
At the same time though, I don’t want to understate the necessity of those of us working in the healing arts, to have studied a modality of some sort and to have honed a set of skills. If it weren’t for my kinesiology training and the years I spent faithfully treating people using these skills, I wouldn’t have developed the powerful intuitive abilities I now use daily in my work and that I follow in every moment of my life.
Which brings me to the second purpose of this article, and that is to describe as best I can, how it feels to live completely from intuition.My style of intuitive awareness is based in a knowingness which shows up as words or phrases that arrive unbidden in my body-mind. I say body-mind because I don’t hear them like a regular thought. I ‘hear’ them or sometimes ‘see’ them in my heart space.
Some people’s intuitive gifts (we all have them), are more visual or feeling-based.
I don’t want to keep you much longer because the word count is mounting and I wrote about this in detail in my article, How to Access Your Intuition – Three Steps, but I’ll offer this:
I listen within, I trust what I hear and I’m prepared to change my mind, my plans and my driving route at a moment’s notice when urged from my intuition.
I’ll leave you with a neat little example:
My son came home one day with a completely seized up neck. He was in a lot of pain and was very distressed. I immediately did what I could to help him feel better and then I realised why, that very afternoon I’d felt the urge to phone our local osteopath and book an appointment. She gets completely booked up each week and I’d been able to secure a session the following afternoon. So my son got to receive some amazing help the very next day.
Now you might say, “Phew, that was lucky!”
What I say is, “Phew, thank goodness I listened to my intuition.”
One session with our wonderful osteo and he’s on the road to recovery. We all have these moments don’t we? Just imagine how it would feel if life always flowed like this. Sure, crappy things still happen, but we move through those challenging times all the better when our intuition is firing and being utilised.
Food for thought? For a personal healing session with me, either in-person, over the phone or via Skype, click here and then give me a call.
Much love to you, Tricia
