Energy healing is increasingly gaining acceptance as a valuable and non-invasive way to bring the body to optimal functioning. As more and more people experience the relaxation of stress, removal of energy blocks, the gentle, safe and effective relief of many health discomforts and imbalances, energy healing is slowly becoming recognised as an important part of any health care program.
Read below for a brief introduction to energy healing. Check out Marelon's article called "Our Energies: Not Seeing is Believing" for more detail. Marelon uses these techniques:
Emotional Freedom Technique
Jin Shin Jyutsu
Core Belief Healing
Energy healing makes use of energy fields in and around our bodies, the same energy fields used by traditions such as Chinese Acupuncture and Indian Ayurveda. Chinese physicians mapped out lines of energy movement called "meridians" around five thousand years ago. Ayurveda mapped out the whirling energy vortices called "chakras" around the same time.
Both Acupuncture and Ayurveda work to balance the body's subtle energy fields, with the idea that when our energies are balanced and flowing properly, our physical body can and will heal itself from any disease process. Using Acupuncture points, Ayurveda or any of the many other healing practices, an energy worker understands that her job is not to heal the client, but to rebalance the client's energy so that the client can heal herself or himself.
Many Energy Healing Techniques
Although Acupuncture has gained much more acceptance in our culture recently, there are literally hundreds of energy healing techniques. This is because our subtle energy fields or structures are not only sensitive to physical stimulation, but also to emotions, thoughts and frequency. External stimuli such as colours, sounds and electro-magnetic energy all create frequency, which can be applied to the energy fields for rebalancing and healing. Internal stimulation such as creative visualisation creates positive frequencies too, and has immediate positive impact on the energy bodies. Energy healing techniques come in many interesting variations, but they all share a common purpose of working to produce healing frequencies.
Reconnection Healing is a totally new healing energy, according to its originator, Dr. Eric Pearl. It is a gentle energy which is directed to the client's body through the practitioner's eyes. The body itself decides where and how to make use of the energy.
Reconnection Healing is gentle, non-invasive and completely safe for any condition. There is not even any touch involved, as the practitioner directs the healing energy through her eyes. There is no equipment or special procedures, and Reconnection Healing energy is easily received by anyone.
Reconnection Healing can be done at a distance. Clients who are receiving Reconnection Healing react with registers, special indicators that are observed by the practitioner. It is your assurance that you are truly receiving Reconnection Healing energy. Reconnection Healing is not a long term healing process. You and the practitioner will know within three or four sessions if it is healing you in the way that you want. Your healing may be complete in that time, or you may require a few more healing sessions.
Reconnection Healing tends to continue working long after healing sessions are complete. Many clients report progressive improvements for up to six months after completing a series of healing sessions for a particular health issue.
Chakras are part of the subtle energy structures of our bodies. Some people believe that we have a physical body that creates chakras and meridians and auras around itself. It is actually the other way around: without the aura, the chakras and the meridians and many other energy structures, we would not have a physical body. The subtle energy structures provide a matrix for our bodies, and chakras in particular draw energy in from all around us, energy that can help us function healthily or can cause disruptions and blockages and unhealthy conditions.
Chakras are spinning vortices of energy. They appear like a bowl or spinning circle of energy above the surface of the body. One of the important functions of chakras is to "step down" energy received from our surroundings. Very high frequency energy cannot be used by our bodies, so the various chakras weaken the incoming energy until it is the appropriate frequency. This is similar to the step-down transformers outside our houses, which split or weaken the electricity that flows from power lines into our household wiring. If it came in at the strength at which it flows through the power lines, it would burn out the wiring and any appliances unlucky enough receive that energy. So there is a transformer that cuts the power to 220 volts for ranges and dryers, and to 110 volts for everything else. Chakras perform the same function for human bodies!
Chakras Easily Disrupted
Chakras are most commonly disrupted by negative emotions. Strong episodes of anger, grief, helplessness and so on, can cause a chakra to spin slowly, or in a lop-sided manner, or to spin in the wrong direction. Traumatic emotional events may even cause tears in chakras or in the aura. Some events cause us to "close down" one or more chakra and exhaustion can weaken chakras until they are barely able to function. Minor disruptions of a chakra can feel like tiredness to most people, but serious disruptions can cause reactions up to and including severe physical pain. Physical events such as vehicle accidents, abuse and physical attacks will also seriously impact the chakras: shock will disrupt them, as well.
Chakras Can Be Rebalanced
Where the term "chakra balancing" came from is unknown, for most often a disrupted chakra requires much more than simple "balancing." However all energetic structures are amenable to healing, and indeed will heal themselves to a large extent if provided with a peaceful environment free of stress. Because they are "structures" of frequency, chakras respond to colour, sound, and many other forms of energy. Marelon intuitively was drawn to the use of tuning forks, as they produce pure frequency, and the chakras respond strongly to a the vibration of a clear note. Marelon almost always balances a client's chakras as part of any healing session, as having the chakras functioning well is a crucial step in the healing process. Many clients feel so much better just from the chakra balancing that even after their presenting problems are resolved, they continue to return on a regular basis just for chakra balancing.
Chakra Healing Modalities
Although the tuning forks are a favorite healing modality for balancing chakras, Marelon also utilizes colour therapy, sound therapy, Polarity Therapy and crystals to bring the chakras back to optimal function.
Jin Shin Jyutsu
An Ancient Use of Healing Points
Many healing techniques use finger or hand pressure on acupuncture points (rather than needles) to create healthful energy shifts. Each technique has a slightly different history and emphasis.
Jin Shin Jyutsu brings balance to the body's energies, particularly emotional energy, which promotes optimal health and well-being, and facilitates our own profound healing capacity. It is exceptional at inducing relaxation and reducing the effects of stress.
Jin Shin Rebalances Energy For Health
Jin Shin Jyutsu employs twenty-six "safety energy locks" along energy pathways that feed life into our bodies. When one or more of the paths becomes blocked, the resulting stagnation can disrupt the local area and may eventually compromise energy flow. This can have profound effects on emotional and physical health. Holding these energy locks in combination can quickly bring balance to mind, body, and spirit.
Peaceful Beginning to Healing
Marelon employs Jin Shin Jyutsu at the beginning of most healing sessions as a way to bring a client quickly to a state of relaxation. She uses the Jin Shin points that harmonize masculine and feminine energy flows, and bring a person back to a healthier mental and emotional state. Jin Shin Jyutsu is not uncomfortable, and the practice gives the client an opportunity to talk and helps clarify their issues before Emotional Freedom Technique or Reconnection Healing is used.
Core Belief Healing
Are you dissatisfied with your life? Do you sometimes feel as if you are going nowhere? Are you confused about why the same thing seems to keep happening to you? Is there a past event that continues to affect your life in negative ways? Do you believe there must be a better way to live? If you answered yes to any of these questions you are probably an excellent candidate for Core Belief healing.
Core Beliefs Determine the Quality of Our Lives
Core beliefs are entrenched beliefs that we may or may not know that we hold. Some core beliefs are positive and these attract positive life experiences. Some core beliefs are negative and these attract negative life situations. Some core beliefs can be the exact opposite of others - resulting in inner conflicts, procrastination, dilemmas or feeling stuck between two equally unacceptable alternatives. The quality of our core beliefs directly affects the quality of our life - we cannot have a life with love, wealth and health if our core beliefs support abandonment, poverty and illness!
You Have Negative Core Beliefs When
It is easy to determine if you have negative core beliefs, even if you are not aware of them. Look at your life - whatever in your life is not EXACTLY the way you want it, is most certainly being determined by a negative core belief. If you marriage is unhappy, it is because there is a belief that marriage or relationships hurt or disappoint. If your job is dissatisfying, it is because there is a belief or beliefs that you will be underpaid, unappreciated or that work is a misery to be endured. If your employer mistreats you, it is because of a belief that says you will be mistreated in some way by employers. Negative core beliefs advertise themselves blatantly in our life experiences: whatever is not working to our satisfaction, probably is working to the pattern dictated by a negative belief..
Core Beliefs CAN Be Changed
The good news is, negative core beliefs can be eliminated or changed into positive ones quickly and with minimal pain. The results may be felt immediately as life reflects the inner changes - more positive interactions with others, more opportunities open up and other beneficial results begin to happen. Sometimes changes happen over subsequent months as life re-arranges itself to match the new, life-enhancing core beliefs. It only makes sense: since our core beliefs determine the quality of our lives, changing the quality of those beliefs from self-defeating to self-supportive has to bring about far reaching positive changes!
Marelon successfully uses Emotional Freedom Technique(EFT), and a derivative form of EFT called The Choices Method, extensively in her practice to help people change self-defeating core beliefs into positive, life-enhancing beliefs. This may be done as a deliberate focus on healing unhealthy core beliefs, or it may be worked into sessions that focus on emotional problems. Either way, nothing is more effective than EFT for creating dramatic shifts in core beliefs - and in life!
