What Exactly Is Energy Healing?

The McKay Method

Monday Jun. 1st, 2015

The word healing indicates that all aspects of a person are involved and connected - our understanding that spiritual, emotional, psychological states have direct physical impacts. You can’t deny the physiological impacts of anger (increased heart rate, rapid breathing, an adrenaline rush), depression (a weakened immune system, loss of appetite), and stress (high blood pressure, adrenal fatigue). Energy healing uses methods for working across this spectrum to create synergistic results, each aspect addressed to support overall health.

Our physical body is our densest energy body. Unique physical characteristics, like facial features, are also evident internally – the size and shape of organs and bones, the rate of metabolism, hormonal balance, which genes get “expressed” – all are variations of the basic human form. The body is a structure, a set of complex patterns that determine the flow of energy and therefore our health. Energy healing techniques can change the patterning and flow of energy to create more balance, which results in optimal health.
Matter is energy, and energy is matter. We are just beginning to act as though this scientific tenet is true. Our material body is constantly undergoing this transformation - food is transformed into energy to fuel our activity, repetitive movement builds muscle density, calcifications are created and tumors are reabsorbed. Energy healing is working that edge, releasing stuck matter into energy and strengthening form in weaker areas.
Water is the interface between matter and energy, and water carries energy. We consider water matter – we can interact with it, name it, assign it properties – and it behaves like energy. We talk of both water and energy as “flowing.” Water takes the shape of whatever container it is in, and naturally moves in spirals, waves and branches. We are mostly made up of water, and working with energy has a big impact on our bodies.
There are two aspects involved in developing energy healing skills – sensing energy in the body (energy awareness) and techniques to work with it. Both are equally important and quite easily learned – there is no need to have a special “gift.” When acquiring a skill you first learn how to do it and then practice; the same is true for energy healing. These skills are an invaluable asset and I use them on a daily basis.
It’s important to seek the support of a professional energy healer, along with other medical providers, for serious or acute conditions. Energy healing is an important part of the health care puzzle and can help you maintain good health and avoid some more serious health issues. I encourage you to learn some of the ways you can support the best health possible for yourself and your tribe.
