The need for healing is as natural as the need to breathe. It is part of our answer to traumas we face and shoulder. Last year was a year many of us took blow after blow emotionally, physically and economically. These blows kept us in a virtual world of emergency. Adrenaline constantly coursing through us in an effort to keep us ready to take cover or run to safety or to brace ourselves for another shocking event. This sets our energetic balance off and leaves us vulnerable to emotional and physical illness.
Each day we breakdown our bodies with normal every day activities. The stress of living under a pandemic and social tensions erupting everywhere, adds extra wear and tear. Our physical bodies are in constant need of healing and repair. Our involuntary body systems ensure the body goes under repair at night when we rest. Our spiritual energetic bodies are also used everyday and need to be recalibrated, repaired and replenished. There is no involuntary system that automatically guides the healing process of our energetic bodies. We have to ensure that we initiate it. Energy healing is an ancient system that restores the balance and flow of energy throughout the etheric body, mind, and soul. The different modalities are used to treat various medical conditions, including ailments related to mental health.
Healing yourself energetically is healing the disturbance of the energy flow in and around the body. When your energy flow gets nurtured, balance returns and healing occurs. There are many energy healing modalities. A few are listed below.
Spiritual Energy Healers
What is an important part of energy healing, are the Healers who have trained and dedicated themselves to healing their communities with their skills and talents. They are extremely dedicated and devoted. Many times they work for free or on a sliding scale in order that their healing work can reach the underserved communities, people and families.
Sometimes all that is need is a healing presence. Most other times, healers use their spiritual abilities as well as their training to service those in need. They are silent warriors that are largely unknown to the public. They walk their walk in dedication to the Divine and Humanity with humility and love. I want to give special praise and recognition to those beautiful souls!
