While Standard Medical Care, SMC, has done wonders in alleviating some of mankind’s worst diseases and conditions, it is, unfortunately, not a be-all and end-all. Many people who suffer from chronic pain, injuries, and other problems have experienced a long, pointless journey where, after tests and consultations and expensive prescription drugs, find themselves no better off than when they started.
If you stop to think about it, you will become aware that you, and the world around you, are all driven along by energy. Every living thing uses energy to perform its life functions, and when the energy is flowing as it should, you will feel fine. However, once the normal pathways that your body’s energy would take become damaged or blocked, you will need energy healing methods to restore them.
So, How Does Energy Work?
The body’s energy can be thought of as stream constantly moving and flowing inside and around you. When the energy flow is unobstructed, you will feel good and have no trouble dealing with everyday situations. However, should something occur to divert this stream off its normal path or even stop the flow entirely (such as illness or stress), it will be extremely difficult for your mind and body to recover completely, even if the most obvious symptoms have been treated.
Employing Energy Healing Methods
There are numerous physical conditions that can result from ‘broken’ energy – high blood pressure, gastrointestinal problems, headaches, chronic pain. While it is important to see your physician when you begin to feel ill, it could be that he or she will be unable to help you. Hard-to-pin-down conditions, such as general malaise or fatigue, can also defy conventional treatment. If you feel that your energy flow has been disrupted, it will be important to restore the proper balance for both your physical and mental health. There are several ways to approach energy healing:
• Energy healers could provide the help you need to return your energy flow to normal. These people have been trained intensively to provide the energy healing treatments you need. Often, energy healers will work to actually transfer energy from the surrounding world to you by passing their hands over your body, concentrating on areas that are giving you trouble.
• In many cases, your life energy force has been interrupted because of the stress and strain of daily living. As your mind becomes more and more clogged with problems and pressures, energy is diverted from its normal flow paths. Meditation is an excellent and proven way to calm the mind. Practicing meditation even for a half hour every day can relax you, reduce the levels of cortisol and adrenaline (stress chemicals your body makes), increase your ‘feel good’ chemicals, and help to remove the impediments to normal energy flow.
• Acupuncture is another energy healing method that can help you. The principle behind acupuncture is the flow of the body’s energy, and this practice is devoted to using needles to block incorrect, harmful energy flows while restoring the proper channels.
• Massage is also useful as an energy healing tool. Helping tight muscles to relax and release their grip on strangled nerves and energy flow, bringing the body’s harmony back and improving how you feel.
There is no reason why these energy healing methods need be thought of as mutually exclusive; combining meditation with acupuncture or massage will only increase your chances of success and help return your energy flow to normal as quickly as possible.
