WHAT IS ENERGY?
What is Energy? We are all made up of Energy. Everything is energy. Every experience carries with it energy - the food we eat, the people we interact with and even just pass on the street. The emotions we feel. The emotions others feel about us. The places we go. Everything.
WHAT IS AN ENERGY BLOCKAGE?
Most of us are unaware that we are constantly being affected by the energy of all of our experiences. We gather it into our light body, the energetic layer that comprises our body and our aura. This layer acts like a spider's web, gathering up everything that passes through it. When energy of lower vibrations builds up it gets stuck, creating emotional, physical and spiritual blockages.
Over time, energy builds up and needs to be cleared out. This is basic spiritual hygiene. If you went a week without bathing you'd expect to be pretty dirty.
WHAT IS AN ENERGY HEALING?
There are many modalities of energy healing. They are processes by which energy which is of a higher, clearer vibration is infused into areas of lower density energy, causing the old energy to be elevated and/or released, allowing for cleaner, brighter energy to flow through freely.
I use a combination of reiki, remote viewing and visualization to scan and assess one's state of energetic health, and to remove and release blockages and build up. For those with normal residue, they report feeling more energetic and inspired following a healing session. For those with physical pain and/or emotional issues, results range from relief, new signs of healing to the integration of new insights related to the original condition.
WHAT ARE THE RESULTS OF AN ENERGY CLEARING?
As an energy healer, I clear out people who are sensitive to energy, as well as those who are not.
Those who are sensitive notice new integrations happening, old feelings being released and the influx of new energy in their lives.
Those who are less sensitive notice outward changes in their life, and then are surprised to make the connection, when the only variable that changed was the healing.
While an energy clearing is a quick process, the change is remarkable.
Most healers learn that grounding and protecting themselves is one of the first steps to take before engaging in any work with other people's energy bodies. In fact, it's the first step an empath (a person wide open to others' energy) can take when waking up in the morning and before going to sleep. If you're wondering why check out Why Ground and Protect.
Thanks to the sage advice of my own coach, I've made it a practice to ground, ascend and protect myself at the start and end of each day. I do it again before I do readings or healings. I'll share my favorite version with you here.
Grounding, Cleansing and Protecting:
Close your eyes and center yourself. Take a few deep, grounding breaths.
Bring your awareness to your root chakra, glowing red at the base of your spine. Imagine an anchor descending from your root deep into the core of the earth, wrapping itself around the core of the earth until it fits tightly.
Notice any nervous energy in your body and consciously send it down the anchor, deep into the earth, where it is lovingly accepted and transmuted into pure love energy, much like a tree converts our breath to oxygen.
Bring your awareness back to your body and visualize each of your remaining 6 major chakras. As you envision each one, intend for it to be cleaned, sending any dark or unwanted energies down your anchor into the earth. Place your awareness on your orange, yellow, green, blue and indigo and violet chakras, clearing each of them in turn.
After you clear your violet, or crown chakra (some see this as white), envision a golden crown on your head. from the center of that crown, a beam of light reaches up to the sun, connecting to the sun and magnetizing it down to your crown chakra.
The sun is a concentrated emissary of God's pure golden light. Allow that light to come down through the channel you've crated, filling your body with love. You can access that love anytime you want.
Now move to your center, your yellow solar plexus chakra, and pull the bright sun down and feel it inside you beaming outwards like an electrified globe. Encircle yourself with a large circle of pure white light, then encircle that with purple light. Purple is a high vibration healing light that allows only positive energy in and out. Picture the purple radiating out into the world.
Now take a deep breath and savor the beautiful sensations. You're good to go! Do this upon waking, before sleeping, and anytime you plan to work with healing energy.
I had no idea what Grounding and Protecting was just 2 years ago. But it's a practice that changed my life.
For those of you who are getting spiritually active and noticing the energetic impact that others have on you, it's as basic as showering and getting dressed in the morning and putting on your pajamas at night.
Before I knew how to ground and protect I was walking around like an open wound. I felt scared and anxious all the time. Being around people was often terrifying. I had no idea why. The closest diagnosis that applied was "social anxiety disorder." But that diagnosis was a symptom of something more essential to who I was - an empath.
An empath is someone who is wide open to the energies or vibes of other people that they soak them up without even noticing it. Imagine if you soaked up the anger, irritation, fear, anxiety, etc of everyone you passed on the street. You would be a wreck. And that's what most of us are before we learn how to ground and protect.
Psychics and mediums are able to pick up the information we get because we are like walking antennas for other people's energy, including their feelings, thoughts, and their personalities. Before you learn how to shut that off -- and keep your own energy front and center -- it can be truly disturbing.
Grounding connects us to the energy of the earth so that we can stay rooted even while we pick up on the myriad energies around us. Protecting seals us off from many of those energies, particularly those that might harm us.
In my next post I'll share my favorite version of this tool, Grounding, Cleansing and Protecting.
