"Nothing, in all of the Universe is more delicious than to be in this physical body
allowing the fullness that is you to be present in the moment."
- Abraham Hicks
The physical body is the gateway to experiencing life through our five senses. We feel the wind, sun and rain. We hear children playing in the playground. We see beautiful paintings and architecture, and relish in its creation. We taste delicious food from our grandma and enjoy every bite.
Everything we experience expresses itself in energy - whether visible or invisible. Invisible energy, more known as subtle energy, is more familiar than we realize. Have you ever been to a live sports game or concert and felt the positive energy of a crowd? What about the pain of heartbreak and although your mind has moved on, your body feels it deeply within your heart? Or maybe as you're stepping out the door, you get a feeling that you will bump into a particular person that day?
It’s undeniable we sense these subtle energies. We experience energies in an unique and personal way, and sometimes it’s hard to explain. Tuning in, deeply processing and experiencing the world beyond our senses are all part of our intuition. Our intuition guides us in sensing or “picking up” energy as an informational imprint to inform us about the world and ourselves.
Energy is expressed in vibration and flows through our bodies; it’s the the expression of our soul. It is known in many cultures under different names: such as Chi, Ki, Ti, Prana, Life Force and love. Energy is the creative force that our bodies are composed of, and brings light to our consciousness. It also flows outside our bodies, where also our thoughts, actions and words all contain this vibrational energy. How we choose our words, reactions and attitude have as much impact as getting adequate sleep, exercise and eating well.
Health, in the holistic viewpoint, focuses on the connection of mind, body and spirit. When you are unwell, there may be blockages around your body. These blockages can manifest in weak energetic areas due to factors such as physical injury, mental or emotional stress, not taking proper care of oneself, etc.
In a healing session, Universal Life force energy is drawn down through the energy healer to the individual. The energy has an intelligence of its own and goes to where it’s needed most. Therefore, an energy healer becomes a catalyst to encouraging your body back to a healthy, balanced state. When you create awareness to bring back ease into your well being, you become your own healer.
Energy healing is about that opening up, looking within and relaxing into a process that releases all that doesn’t serve you. It may shine a light on deep processes on how we hold tension, solutions to issues in our lives and how to find your way back to feeling like yourself. Allow it to move past you and learn from difficult experiences and stress in a gentle manner.
