Energetic work is a bit ahead of its time (think acupuncture years ago when it seemed nutty and is now widely accepted and appreciated) but is becoming better understood and coming into its own. Energy follows the universal laws of quantum physics and is completely based in science, but if you think Einstein was a bit of a nut then it may not be for you. I am a grounded person who appreciates science and its place in health; I also experienced the failure of western medicine and lost many years to autoimmune disease, so I don't blithely accept all science espouses. It's a piece, it is far from the whole pie. I recovered using energetic and vibrational healing principles, which led me to the root cause of my issues as well as helped me find solutions to heal at a deep level. (As an added bonus, my body says it doesn't recognize the illness, while western medicine says you can't do more than achieve remission... which is true if you only use western medicine!)
Importantly, while energetics does not diagnose disease, it can be more sensitive in finding imbalances long before they develop into actual symptomatology or disease. This is huge. The energetic model can be based on varying systems and beliefs, but there are commonalities across them. These systems are well documented and have been used for thousands of years in many cultures, the most common framework is meridians and chakras (Asian and Vedic principles). Bioenergy balancing follows the Traditional Chinese Medicine approach (as do acupuncture, acupressure, qi gong and other asian healing arts), which is the most well understood and has become increasingly commonly used. Donna Eden, who has mad skills as an energetic practitioner, identifies 9 systems (including the biofield systems) that all work in connected ways in our bodies. The body is unbelievably elegant in its ability to carry out complex, constantly adjusting functions and make it look simple.
Each meridian affects specific organs, tissues and functions. As a system they are a river of light energy running through our body that feed every organ and system, and can promote meaningful healing. Energetics sounds a little out there to people who haven't experienced the results. If you accept that gravity is real even though we can't see it, if you accept that you are an electrical being and that is why they paddle your heart to revive you, if you accept there are greater forces than we always see or understand, you may be amazed at how profoundly healing good energetic work is.
Your experience will be dependent on the practitioner you use and how well their talents and views match your needs. Much like doctors, dentists, or any practitioner, your mileage may vary. My clients get excellent results, even after having seen a number of other healers and practitioners without moving the needle far forward. What I do works or I wouldn't make it my life's purpose to do it. I believe when you offer the body what it is asking for, you see positive change (or at least glimmers) reasonably quickly.
There is plenty of science behind how and why energetics work. I have found trying to explain it to people beyond the very basics isn't very useful, one has to experience it to really get it for themselves and see how they respond. Some people who come to me are close-minded, some want to prove me wrong, most already know about the wonders of good energetic work or are open-minded skeptics (love them). I don't feel it is my mission to convince people about what I do, nor would I want to. As my son (a previous open-minded skeptic, now a believer) says, it has to be experienced to be understood. Feeling is believing.
Biofield energy work is done fully clothed on a massage table. I am able to work by phone remote with excellent results. I use muscle testing to calibrate the body's response to inquiries, which gives me a "yes" or "no" (or perhaps a "don't want to talk about it"). I use a pendulum to read the answers so you can see the process as I do it and don't have to imagine what the muscle response is. Because of the many years I worked with animals, I connect quickly and reliably to the energy field and have a well-developed focus that allows me to communicate clearly with bodies.
This work can help you recover health after a chronic illness or fatigue syndrome. As a client you hear what your body has to say and you become more connected to your body. My larger goal is to teach you useful tools so you feel power and confidence over your health and maintain wellness as an organic part of your daily life, without taking boatloads of pills a day. We customize your health plan to offer your body what it wants and uses; I can save you money adjusting dosage to reflect what your body really wants (rarely does it want the same thing daily) and cutting out supplements your body has no interest in taking. Learn tools that help you manage stress and create well-being, success at work and, in relationships, and life with more calm and ease.
The journey to health is a hero's journey. We have to understand we are our one true beloved, the only one guaranteed with us as we take our final breath. Most people beat on themselves, when we deserve compassion and forgiveness as a daily practice f(or ourselves and others). The seeds of self-love is where the most profound healing is found. When we are kind to ourselves we offer the same to others and shift the world at large.
