What You Don’t Know About the Art of Energy Healing
Often times, people approach the healing arts with equal parts interest, curiosity, and skepticism. However, if you’ve ever experienced the power of holistic health care or known someone whose illnesses or ailments have been helped through alternative medicine, you know just how advantageous these practices can be.
Though the art of holistic healing has been around for thousands of years, and even while today’s experts continue to refine and develop these alternative practices, there are still many aspects of holistic medicine that take many by surprise. Energy healing, for example, is perhaps one of the most common forms of holistic medicine used today.
What is Energy Healing?
Energy Healing is an umbrella term for any type of treatment, practice, or method that uses the body’s natural energy flow to restore or maintain a healthy, holistic balance throughout the physical body. As an alternative means of healing, energy healing refers to the belief that aspects of physical, mental, and spiritual health can be treated by accessing and communicating with the subconscious. By using the mind-body connection to identify, access, balance, and manipulate the energies that promote healing and well-being, energy healing practices are able to access all aspects of the patient’s life, body, and mind to find a powerful, remedial solution.
Below are four uncommon facts about energy healing that you may find interesting.
4 Interesting Facts About Energy Healing
1. Muscle testing examines positive and negative energies
The human body lives and functions on principles of biomagnetic energy. While our conscious mind is typically unaware of these energies, our subconscious minds are both hyper-responsive and hyper-resistant to these natural energies and congruences. Fortunately, it’s also these energies that allow holistic practitioners to perform muscle testing. As outlined in The Emotion Code, by tapping into the subconscious mind through muscle testing, practitioners are able to find the root cause of ailments, illnesses, and decreased well-being.
2. Magnetic healing can be traced back more than 2,000 years
Though many assume that the use of magnetic healing practices to be a relatively new concept, history traces their use back more than 2,000 years when the Chinese documented the practice in the “Yellow Emperor’s Book of Internal Medicine.” In modern times, however, magnetic healing practices were commonly used in the late 1800’s as a means of detecting diseased tissue in the human body and healing the underlying imbalances. As concepts and theories have developed, the use of magnets in holistic healing continues to remain prevalent as modern practitioners use the body’s own magnetic energy and the energy from static magnets to treat and reduce pain.
3. Chakras offer a “Sixth Sense” into the subconscious
Think about all your eyes see in an hour; think about what they see in a day; a year; a lifetime; Now think about all your Third Eye Chakra sees. As the sixth of seven energy centers in your body, your Third Eye is responsible for connecting our conscious mind with our internal intuitions – our “sixth sense” – so to speak. It through this chakra that you are often able to connect with emotions, feelings, and experiences that happened in the past, yet continue to affect you in the present.
While understanding the functionality of each chakra can help you maintain a well-balanced mind, body, and spirit, it’s also one of the greatest ways to access the subconscious mind and utilize the body’s natural energy sources to heal various physical and mental ailments. This interactive chakra chart will help shed light on the importance of maintaining balance within each of the seven chakras.
4. Energy Healing is based on scientific principles
One of the biggest misconceptions about alternative medicine is that there is no scientific basis backing its legitimacy. That, however, is simply false. As science has proven for many years, atoms such as hydrogen, oxygen, carbon, and nitrogen, exert their own energy and play a big role in maintaining a healthy mind-body balance. Furthermore, these atoms are also very susceptible to the vibrations given off by each emotion. If you experience a traumatic event, for example, you will actually be able to feel the energy vibrations being spurred from emotions like fear, sadness, anger, etc. Unfortunately, these experiences can affect the natural makeup of the body’s energy field and create an imbalanced energy flow throughout the body, also known as trapped emotions. By using energy healing methods, however, you can identify and release the energies and emotions that have become lodged in the body and maintain a healthy, holistic balance.
