Talk therapy with a mental health professional can be very useful in overcoming damage from the past and promoting personal growth. Counseling and therapy have certainly been helpful at times in my life.
However, I think that the talk therapy model has left a general cultural impression that mental and emotional healing is something that takes a long time and a lot of struggle and analysis.
But in energy healing this isn’t necessarily so. When emotional trauma or damage from the past arises, sometimes we can let it go in an instant and have it gone for good. We don’t necessarily even have to know what we’re releasing.
Here’s a real-life example.
A new client came to me looking for relief from severe chronic pain, the
result of several prior accidents, spinal surgery, and a tough year.
She looked tired and tense and described feeling so blocked and negative
that couldn’t bring in any new, positive energy.
In working with her physical body, I noticed that muscles in certain areas were tightly contracted. We worked on bringing consciousness to her blocked, guarding muscles. I had her breathe into the contracted areas and gently allow her awareness to flow to these places.
By doing this, she was able to release a lot of the holding in her muscles. As they often do, the muscles just sort of seemed to melt. At the same time she had what she described as an amazing experience, in which “images just arose and disappeared with a ‘poof.’” She said she thought the images were of painful memories from the past. At first she tried to discern what they were, but quickly realized that she didn’t need to know in order to have them leave. And when they left, she said, they were truly gone.
The outcome was remarkable. “Everything is better now,” she kept repeating over and over again. “I feel wonderful.” She looked considerably younger, relaxed, and glowing.
I think it’s important to note that this wasn’t something I planned or directed. It came entirely from her. As energy healers, when we trust the process and the wisdom of our client’s energy, the results are often far more profound than if we try to direct a session with our mind.
By the way, I’m NOT arguing that energy healing is superior to talk
therapy/psychotherapy. I’m a believer in mental health therapists, and
often refer clients to them. There’s a place for both and actually, in
my experience energy healing and mental health therapies often work beautifully together.
My point is one of hope: that healing is a mysterious process, and that emotional healing and feeling better can sometimes happen sooner rather than later.
