Energy Healing & Counselling
In this post,
I’ll address some of the most common questions you may have regarding energy healing.
The depth and seriousness of the issues.
The number of years these problems have been carried through life or even through generations within the family.
The level of trust between the client and the therapist.
The person's ability to observe, recognize and accept that the problem is just one of many life experiences and be able to finally let go and move on.
Resistance to change, (even unconscious).
The need to mentally control the sessions.
The time allowed to Integrate the experience: Resting when need it, continuing the work in between sessions, no rushing or sharing immediately the experience with the outside world.
A person’s ability to work with these issues at a pace that suits them.
Preconceptions or attachment to a specific outcome.
The mental level: In this level, we explore the intellectual understanding of the more psychological and rational facets of our experiences and memories.
The emotional level: Here we explore various types of relationships, including the one with ourselves, various forms of attachments, dependency and boundaries.
The physical level: Here we learn to read and feel what parts of our life experience are held in the body or rejected by the body. As part of the healing journey, we learn to connect in a profoundly meaningful way with our body and become deeply intimate with the physical consequences of the trauma that has been experienced and held.
The energy/auric/Causal level: Here we familiarise ourselves with the trauma that is held on a subtle level, including past lives, ancestors/family and various disempowering dynamics.
The spiritual level: In this part of the process, we gain a deeper and higher understanding of the experiences we’ve been through and thereby become able to integrate, transform and forgive on a genuine heart level; ultimately letting go and moving on.
There may be a tendency to want to control the session and to achieve a specific outcome, rather than approaching the work with open-heartedness and curiosity, allowing it to unfold in its own way.
Tiredness may be caused by a determined holding on to what is held in the body. Often, the mind will try to fight as hard as possible to hold on to what has been there for a long time and has become familiar. This may result in resistance or tension in the body, headaches, pain in the jaw etc.
This is all a normal part of the process.
Though someone may feel, on a conscious level, that they are willing to engage with the work, there may be some resistance on an unconscious level.
Especially at the beginning of this work, a certain amount of physical exhaustion may be felt due to the amount of stress that has been held in the body over a long period and is now being released. Once it is noticed and assimilated, healing can begin.
A certain amount of tiredness at the start of the process may be due to the unfamiliarity of the environment. You are embarking on an intimate journey with someone who is a relative stranger. As you begin to trust and bond with your therapist, it becomes easier and easier to relax into the process itself.
After a session, particularly in the early stages of the work, a degree of tiredness may be due to you feeling more vulnerable and exposed. Again, this is a natural part of the process and is unlikely to persist. It is important to be patient and gentle with yourself after a session, rather than rushing back into the hurly-burly of life.
