In simple terms, energy healing refers to various conventional healing practices that allows an individual to restore balance to his or her mind, soul and body, by simply easing the flow of positive energies all through his or her entire system. This form of healing is directly related to the physical, mental, psychological, spiritual and emotional well-being of the individual.
As a bonus, energy healing is also very effective when treating certain medical conditions. It’s believed that mental illness and ailments can be managed effectively through energy healing.
Most people believe that in some cases, certain diseases and ailments are usually caused by energy distortions in the body or an accumulation of negative energies that do not only affect mental health but also causes emotional instability. So by addressing these negative energies and completely replacing them with positive ones using energy healing, we can live a more fulfilling and long-lasting life.
These energies have been called several names in the past and some of the most common ones are ki, chakra and even rieatsu (meaning spiritual energy). There are several forms of energy healing techniques out there today, with each of them designed to meet a wide variety of needs or achieve a single purpose. So, it is usually advisable for you to use the healing technique that will most likely yield the best result with relative ease.
But, before going into all that boring stuff, here is a quick overview on what these energies (in this case; chakras) are.
What are Chakras?
The word "chakra" has been used by various traditions to mean a whole lot of things. But, with one quick look at the context in which this word is applied, the word "chakra" can be said to mean the same thing, irrespective of its origin.
However, for the sake of knowledge and emphasis, chakras are simply referred to as pools of energy within the human body that connects them to other energies around the world and the universe in general. Since these outside energies can either be good or bad, chakras also acts as filters that separates these not so friendly energies from the good ones in our bodies.
The need for this separation is really simple. Negative energies can be detrimental to us if not handled correctly. They only lead to physical, mental and emotional stress. So, in as much as chakras help to connect people to other energies of the world, the ability of these pools of energy to protect us from negative energies is also one of the many reasons why understanding them (chakras) is important.
With all that said, here are the some of the best energy healing techniques you can try out;
- Reiki Healing
For starters, the word "reiki" is a combination of two separate words from Japanese origin. They are "Rei", which means "God's wisdom" and "ki" which means energy. This form of energy healing is usually joined with your normal traditional medicine to heal an ailment. It is mostly not used in isolation when it is applied. However, the mechanics behind it is really simple. It makes use of a lot of hand gestures and hand/body movements that fills you with the positive energies in the universe.
- Pranic Healing
This is a form of energy healing that is a bit unorthodox from other energy healing techniques. It essentially uses your own body's life force to heal you, or better yet, heal your body's energy. It is almost better than the reiki practice mentioned before because it has a better effect on the energy of the person in question. With pranic healing, people get to rid themselves of all negative attachments and energies that hinders them from healing physically.
- Crystal Healing
Another form of energy healing is crystal healing. As the name implies, crystal healing involves the use of crystals and stones to heal the body and purify the spi. Since there are various forms of crystals, crystal healing is also designed to meet a variety of needs and solve a wide range of problems. Be it an emotional, spiritual or mental problem, crystal healing can assist you. So, the next time you are thinking about trying something new with your energy healing practices, try crystal healing, if you haven’t done so already. You may find it to be just what you are looking for.
- Quantum Healing
If there is one thing that separates this energy healing technique from the rest is its ability to merge entertainment with healing practices. Just so you know, quantum healing is one of those few healing techniques that is based on body resonance and our choices of entertainment. It also makes use of basic and advanced breathing exercises as well as several visualization techniques that improves energy flow. In addition, this healing technique has some positive effects on the body's immune system.
- Qigong Healing
Last but not the least is Qigong. This healing technique dates back 4000 years ago. It is mostly used to reset the mind and body to help it gain its lost balance. It makes use of both breathing exercises and meditation techniques that do not only improve physical well-being and mental health, but also spirituality. For the most part, this healing technique has been said to be of chinese origin, making it a technique that can be used in conjunction with various chinese medicine. It mostly helps you find the balance in all your positive energies allowing you to stay healthy in the process.
BENEFITS OF ENERGY HEALING
