Ask Andrea: Energy Healing
What is energy healing and how does it work?
Energy healing is based on recognizing the underlying life energy that universally permeates all life. Most cultures have a name for this energy. The most well known in the western world is the Chinese word Chi (vital energy) and the East Indian word Prana (lifeforce energy). Energy healing also depends on the understanding that this life energy must be able to flow freely in specific direction and frequency or we will suffer from a myriad of problems and distress.
We have a complete and elaborate energy system to access and interact with the universal life energy. The components of this system are Chakras (power centers) Meridians (energy channels) and Biofield (individual unique layered field of energy). Another important understanding is that we are all one connected field of energy. Healing energetically literally affects all life. By healing ourselves, we help heal others.
All reputable effective energy healing approaches achieve four basic goals: (1) Determine the energetic origin of the distress. (2) Release the energy interruption in the energy system. (3) Re-establish correct flow and balance of the universal energy (4) Address negative thoughts and beliefs and replace them with affirmative self perception and identity for sustainable healing. There are literally hundreds of energy healing methods. Please consult my book Light Through the Keyhole –The Power to Heal Life and Live Joy for an extensive descriptive categorization of over 180 different methods (pgs. 27 – 29) for a deeper understanding of energy healing choices.
