Six Myths About Energy Medicine

Much of this content was borrowed from Dr. Bradley Nelson at https://discoverhealing.com/ (the makers of the Emotion Code™ and Body Code™).

There are many myths surrounding Energy Medicine that I want to debunk. The more knowledge you have about this powerful healing modality the healthier you can be. Recently Dr. Bradley Nelson shared an article that I want to, in turn, share . . .

In a society where modern medicine is the norm and big pharma companies are getting bigger, holistic wellness techniques can be easily overshadowed or discounted. In past years, subscribing to solutions that might be considered “unorthodox” could earn you the label of being “strange” or “unconventional.” The times, however, seem to be changing.

Though people have used complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) for thousands of years, research from institutions like the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) and the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) indicates that there is a growing percentage of Americans who are taking their personal health and well-being into their own hands with a more holistic and alternative approach. In fact, statistics show that over a third of the American population seek alternative ways to relieve pain from chronic conditions, improve overall health, and relieve stress. One popular method for CAM is energy healing.

What is Energy Healing?

Energy healing is intended to tune into the body’s frequencies and the subconscious mind in order to pinpoint the stressors, thoughts, and emotions impeding our overall health and wellbeing. Through energy healing, practitioners are reputed to use heightened levels of consciousness and even spirituality to help their clients achieve a mind-body balance that may aid in overall wellness and alleviate many health concerns.

Though it’s been practiced for millennia, many people remain skeptical of energy healing or don’t fully understand it. Energy healing isn’t about magic crystals, incense, and chanting. In fact, energy healing is now being taken seriously by health practitioners across all realms of medicine and is considered a legitimate practice and profession by growing numbers of people around the globe.
Like the aforementioned “magic crystals and incense” myth, there are several common misconceptions about energy healing. After debunking these common myths, you might find that energy healing can benefit you in ways that more traditional methods might not.

Myth #1: There’s no science behind energy healing

One of the biggest energy healing myths is that there is no science behind it and that it’s all pretense. However, that is simply not the case. Along with leading institutions like the NCCAM and NCHS, the NIH’s National Center for Complementary Health (NCCIH) has spent years conducting scientifically-backed research about the potential effectiveness, quality, and benefits of energy healing. Through these studies, researchers have found that energy healing may be used to improve the immune system, reduce pain, facilitate and speed recovery, and much, much more. You can learn more about the science here.

Myth #2: Energy healing requires you to be religious

Simply put, energy healing is designed to activate the body’s energy systems and remove any negative energies or blocks that may prevent self-healing. In no way does this process require you to subscribe to a particular religion in which you believe in a God. Rather, energy healing is about trusting in a power bigger than yourself (what matters is its significance to you, not whether it’s religious or not) and balancing the energies within your body and mind.

Myth #3: Energy therapy is massage therapy

Though massage therapists might use energy healing techniques in their practice, energy healing is not a massage. Some types of energy healing involve the practitioner conducting a series of hand movements over your body, with the intent of keeping up with the flow of energy. Some other methods may include applying magnets to the meridians of the body, or muscle testing. In no way do these practices involve physically manipulating or massaging your tissues.

Myth #4: Only certified practitioners can apply energy techniques

While using a certified practitioner is very beneficial, there are several ways you might achieve energy wellness for yourself. By starting off visiting an energy practitioner, you should be able to learn many tips and techniques from him or her that you can practice on your own at home. The more professional sessions you receive, the more you will learn to do.

Myth #5: Energy therapy exhausts your own energy

One common myth is that an energy practitioner can transfer energies out of your body and leave you feeling exhausted. But instead, our premise is that energy practitioners work to remove energetic imbalances in order to create better balance and leave you feeling better, not depleted. While there can be some temporary discomfort from processing after an energy healing session (such as high emotions or lethargy), we believe the result is worth it.

Myth #6: Energy healing is a new, modern practice

The practice of energy healing has been around for thousands of years. Prior to the introduction of western medicine, hospitals, and specialized doctors, many turned to the local medicine woman or shaman to maintain or improve health. These primitive practitioners would use an array of techniques in an effort to align their patients’ energies and enhance the body’s own recovery abilities. Even today, traditional Chinese medicine incorporates and relies on the use of chakras, channels, and meridians to influence health and well-being.

Power of the Emotion Code

I love stories. I love hearing them and I love telling them. I can’t seem to remember a person’s name no matter how many times I’ve been introduced to them, but if they told me a story I would be able to retell that same story with amazing accuracy. There is something magical about stories that touch us. Since I love telling stories (and I have a million to tell) I’m going to use this outlet to share . . . I hope you find them inspiring.

So last week I woke up with a terrible pain in my lower back, just over my back left hip bone. I couldn’t imagine what caused such sharp pain because I didn’t do any unusual the day before. I had trouble just walking from the bedroom to the kitchen and for somebody that is normally 100% pain-free, it was quite shocking. I did go SUPing the day before, but I’ve paddled many times with no pain what-so-ever. This just didn’t seem right.

As I sipped my tea and wondered how I was going to take my giant dog for his morning walk in such pain something struck me. Why not just ask my pendulum what is wrong? So that is exactly what I did. I asked what was causing the sudden pain and the answer was ’trapped emotional energy.’ I found two trapped emotions directly related to the pain and both occurred at age 51. At this point, I was only 51 for 3 days! The two emotions that came up were “longing” and “worry” and there was no question what this was all about.

That very morning (3:00 AM to be exact) my husband drove out of the driveway on his way to Logan airport to depart on a two-week trip around the world. From the second I heard the tires hit the dirt road I cringed at how awful his trip would be (for him) and I felt bad for him and worried about his safety. I spend the last few days “longing” for him not to go. After United recently canceled his original flight over India (after the drone got shot down in the same air space that his flight was scheduled to fly in) I couldn’t stop worrying about the trip from hell.

I released the trapped energy from both of these emotions and I could feel my pain INSTANTLY go from an 8 to a 3 on the pain scale. It was significant enough that I put my sneakers right on and took my dog for his 2-mile walk. Within 2 hours the pain was completely gone.

Never underestimate the power of emotions!

Why Do I Feel Anxious?

Excepts of this article reprinted from https://discoverhealing.com (the makers of the Emotion Code.)

For most of us, anxiousness is a passing feeling — a situational thing. Maybe you feel it around your in-laws. It might arise a few hours or days before you take the stage or head to a job interview. But once the experience is over, it usually goes away. But what if it doesn’t? What if you feel anxious often? Does this mean you actually have an anxiety disorder?

Extreme or long-lasting feelings of anxiousness that interfere with your life may be a mental health issue requiring diagnosis or medication from a licensed professional. But simply feeling anxious in certain situations, or from time to time, doesn’t necessarily mean you have this problem.

Have you ever had an experience or time in your life that made you really anxious? Most of us have. But if your body hasn’t fully processed that feeling, it’s possible that this emotional energy can become trapped in your body. This can make you feel like an anxious person, when you might not be that way at all.

If this sounds like you, you might think you’re just “wired that way.” You might keep telling yourself to relax or chill out. Hot baths, reading, meditation, or yoga may bring momentary relaxation, but before long, you might feel wound up again. Unless these feelings get in the way of living your life or make you afraid to get out of bed (see a doctor if they do), a simple trapped emotion of anxiousness could explain why you feel the way you do.

The Emotion Code™ energy healing method could help you feel like yourself again as you release the potential trapped energy of anxiousness. You might feel calmer, lighter, or freer than you have in quite a while.

How Do Emotions Effect Us Physically?

scale of emotions

The Scale of Consciousness, created by Dr. David Hawkin

The image above represents the Scale of Consciousness, created by Dr. David Hawkin and it illustrates the span of different frequencies of various emotions. Positive emotions resonate much higher than negative emotions. Our bodies are resonating at a particular frequency depending on the emotions that we are experiencing and, as humans, we can constantly fluctuate through the different levels on this scale.

Dr. Hawkins has discovered that there is a critical point (when we reach 200 on his scale) where everything that calibrates below this point makes the body go weak and represents as the absence of “truth.” Everything above 200, makes the body go strong and represents the presence of truth. This is how I can use my pendulum to determine if you are telling the truth or a lie. This is also how I can determine if a substance is beneficial or detrimental to you. Non-truths or substances that carry a low vibration will cause your body to begin to resonate to a frequency of less than 200 and that makes your physical body weak. This fluctuation in your frequency can be picked up via a muscle (energy) test or a pendulum.

It is particularly interesting that Dr. Hawkins says that some people’s overall resonance is above the 200 point most of the time, while some others resonate below this point more often. According to Dr. Hawkins, having a frequency of 500 or above is of pure unconditional love, and it is in this state that we are in complete harmony with our body and our environment. But let’s face it, it’s not very easy to remain at this frequency when the stresses of life get in the way.

When emotions don’t pass completely through the body and get trapped in a certain organ, the organ begins to resonate at the frequency of that particular emotion or emotions that are trapped there. Dr. Hawkins’ work would suggest that if we have trapped emotions in the body, we can resonate at the frequency of those emotions, whether below 200 or above. Most of the emotions that get trapped resonate below 200. and having these emotions trapped within us could contribute to lowering our overall resonance, thus “weakening” the body. You can see how the presence of too many trapped emotions can lower a person’s overall resonance. Do you think your overall resonance falls above or below 200? Is your glass almost always half full or half empty? Getting rid of emotional baggage can significantly increase your overall level of happiness.

This is where the Emotion Code™ comes in. It offers a fast and simple way to fully release trapped emotions from the body, thereby increasing the bodies overall frequency. For more details on the Emotion Code, please click the button below.

Why I No Longer Offer Reiki

I recently removed Reiki from my list of services and I wanted to take this opportunity to explain why. This month I attended my first Pranic Healing course and attained my Level One Pranic Healing certificate. The course blew me away and I found it so interesting to compare it to the form of Energy Medicine that I’m currently certified in and so familiar with (Eden Energy Medicine or EEM). The two modalities definitely speak the same language, but yet the approaches are very different. They are both grounded in so much science, ancient knowledge, and tradition. I truly feel like Pranic Healing is an amazing compliment to what I already do.

However, my feeling toward Reiki shifted a bit. For the past year, when I got new clients inquiring about Reiki I would intentionally steer them to other options that I felt were better suited to their issue. The biggest reason I kept Reiki on my website was that it is the “energy healing modality” that everyone knows. Everyone has heard of Reiki and just about every time I tell a stranger that I’m “an Energy Medicine Practitioner” their response is, “Oh, like Reiki?” And that is understandable. It’s the most mainstream because there are so many people doing it. And the reason for that is because it’s fast, cheap, and relatively easy to gain a Reiki attunement. I honestly just didn’t want to lose the search engine traffic on the word “Reiki,” but that is no longer a compelling enough reason to keep it on my website.

This month, during my Pranic Healing course I realized something so important that it rattled my cage. Pranic Healing is all about three things:

  1. Cleansing dirty energy
  2. Energizing with clean energy
  3.  Stabilizing the energy

The first one is the one that really hit me. It’s very important to clean the toxins out before you put energy in. This brings me back to year one of Eden Energy Medicine when we learned how important it was to determine if a meridian was over or under-energized. You can’t give more energy to an over-energized meridian. You must first sedate that energy in order to balance it. As I mentioned above, Eden and Pranic are so similar, but with slightly different approaches.

In Reiki (as far as I know) there is no removing of toxic or dirty energy. The premise of Reiki is to just send positive loving energy to various parts of the body. But now I fear that sending extra energy to areas that may be infected, in pain, or diseased may not be the best thing. I equate this to our lessons in EEM to never place the south side of a magnet on an open wound or on somebody that has cancer or any other tumors. The south side of a magnet will actually intensify the problem.

I’m not, in any way, saying or claiming that Reiki can be harmful, but I just don’t feel like it’s the best option of all the other services that I can offer. There are many other Reiki practitioners, especially in my community, so I feel that if somebody has their heart set on Reiki, they should see somebody that truly has their heart in it.

Eden Energy Medicine versus Pranic Healing

What’s the difference between Eden Energy Medicine and Pranic Healing?

Eden Energy and Pranic Healing are both forms of Energy Medicine and to be honest, in many ways, they are very similar. After taking my first Pranic healing course and seeing just how similar they were, it occurred to me that it may be confusing for clients to decide which type of service they should request so I’m going to try to explain in this blog post . . .

Eden Energy and Pranic Healing are both built on the same basic principals.

How fast we can heal from any illness or disease is determined by how much Prana (or life force energy) we have in our bodies. Increasing our levels of energy helps our bodies to do their job and heal themselves. We naturally get this energy in many ways, the three biggest sources for replenishing this life force energy is through the sun, the air and the earth. Other things that bring fresh healthy energy to us include food, minerals, water, herbs, etc. Many of these same elements that bring us healthy energy can also contaminate us with unhealthy (or negative) energy. If the air you breathe is polluted, you get too much exposure to the sun, the water you drink is treated with chemicals, the foods you eat are processed and full of sugar and additives you are depleting your body of its life force energy.

All living things have an energy body that surrounds and protects the physical body, including animals, trees and plants. There is a direct link between the health of our physical bodies and the health of our energy body. When there are disturbances and imbalances in the energy body it will manifest in the physical body. It’s just a matter of time.

So what is the difference?

Eden Energy Medicine focuses on accesses the bodies’ various energy systems. Through a series of muscle tests, we can determine which meridians are over and under-energized, which chakras may be congested, which organs are depleted, and whether or not emotional upset is causing physical conditions. Eden Energy Medicine covers all aspects of the nine energy systems that make up the human body. During what are called “Energy Tracking Sessions” you are tested and balanced where needed and by tracking where your energy tends to go and how long it stays balanced gives off many clues to what is causing physical problems.

Important points on EEM

  • hands-on approach
  • includes a series of testing to determine the exact imbalances
  • longer sessions (1 – 1.5 hours)
  • best suited for long-standing chronic conditions
  • usually requires multiple sessions
  • clinical in natural
  • commitment on the clients part to maintain with self-care at home
  • client must be present

For more information on Eden Energy Medicine, please click the button below.


Pranic Healing only focuses on the energy field, primarily on the chakras. All problems in the physical body relate back to one or more of the chakras, which are the “energy centers” of the body. Pranic healing is a non-touch approach, where all work is done in the energy field over the body (or from remote distances where the healer and practitioner are not together in the same room). Pranic Healing uses a cookbook approach to healing different ailments. There is a protocol (similar to a recipe) for all sorts of ailments ranging from simple aches and pains to serious diseases. There are also many remedies for trauma and anxiety. Pranic Healing can produce results in the shortest amount of time with the least amount of effort.

Important points on Pranic Healing

  • no touch approach
  • very little testing
  • 30 minutes sessions
  • best opportunity for the quickest results in the fewest amount of sessions
  • bridge to spirituality – meditation and prayer is used to perform healings
  • nothing for client to do as homework
  • can be done in person or from a distance

Living Pain-free – Part 2

Picking up where I left off . . . I mentioned that since I’ve been meditating and doing my Energy Medicine exercises daily that I’ve been completely pain-free. And this fact really struck me that day I took the long walk on the beach and wrote Part 1 of this story. You see, this day I woke up and noticed that my thighs were sore from climbing one of the ancient ruins of Coba a couple of days before. It’s been so long since my body experienced pain that it really made me notice it. It was an amazing flip from the first days when I realized that I felt no pain. It was such an amazing experience to remember what it felt like to NOT have constant pain. When you suffer from pain, or any condition, every day for long periods of time it becomes your body’s new norm and you forget what it’s like to not experience it. That period of time when I had my first stretches of pain-free days was incredible. I compare it to putting a pair of prescription eyeglasses on for the first time when you get that “wow” sensation.

It just amazes me, not only at how many clients I see that are in pain but just how many different problems they have, all at the same time. My intake form allows room for 5 symptoms and most people require me to get an extra piece of paper. And here’s the big kicker, some of them are half my age!

It is so hard for me to sit across from a client and try to imagine the level of pain they are experiencing. Well actually, it’s not hard to imagine because I make people rate the symptoms on a scale of 1 – 10. After we go through all the symptoms I think to myself, “Wow, this is how they feel right now sitting here in my office . . . and every day?” It is such a huge eye-opener and it pains me just thinking about it. It seems the harsh reality is most of the population is suffering from something on a constant basis. How did this happen? How did we get to this point?

I spend nearly all my free time studying and taking in as much information on natural healing as I possibly can and every single thing that I’ve learned so far just reinforces the connection between pain/illness and our minds. It’s that crucial mind/body connection that is so severely lacking in our traditional paths of medicine. Using myself as an example I can confidently say that my level of happiness is directly related to my lack of pain and illness. I use meditation for the mind part and Energy Medicine for the body part and it seems to be a winning combination. I am so blessed and grateful to have the knowledge that I have and it has become my life’s passion to share this knowledge with as many people as I can.

Which leads me to my very first “Intro to Energy Medicine” class which will be starting in May. If you’re ready to take control of your own health, do yourself a favor and check it out. More details on the class by clicking the button below. But just remember one very important thing . . . you will learn some tools to create better health, but it’s up to YOU to use them. There is no magical silver bullet and everything worth having is worth working for.

My First Pranic Energy Facial

When I came to Mexico a few years ago for my first sabbatical, I stumbled across a Pranic Healing center. Well, I didn’t exactly “stumble across it.” My awesome real estate agent (ahora mi amiga) told me about it. I became instantly fascinated by it and it definitely fueled this entire “energy journey” that I’ve been on ever since. This center offers courses on how to learn Pranic Healing and one of the courses being offered that year was “Pranic Energy Facials.” And can you guess how and why Crystal Energy Facials were the first thing I got certified in as soon as I got home? All of these Pranic healing courses here in Mexico are taught in Spanish (but of course) and my desire to learn the language also got ratcheted up.

Sadly, I still don’t know enough Spanish to take some of these courses during my stay, but this week I ventured to the healing center for my very first Pranic experience. The center offers donation-based healings once a week and with the help of my Spanish-speaking friend, I got an appointment with an English-speaking healer.

I had no idea what I was going to tell them as far as what I wanted “healed.” I’m in pretty great energetic shape because I work on it every single day. I was just curious about the process and decided to let them do whatever they wanted to do. How thrilled was I when the practitioner told me that her most profound healings come from the Pranic facials? She said it’s much more about “healing the soul” than vanity. It sounded like a huge double win to me so I was in!

So the first thing that I learned was there are 5 basic Wounds of the Soul:

  1. Rejection
  2. Injustice
  3. Abandonment
  4. Betrayal
  5. Humiliation

And these wounds show up on our faces. The healings work by removing the energy of the wounds from the Soul and thereby that removes the physical lines from the face. The skin appearing younger is just a side effect of removing the deep emotional wounds. It’s very different than what I was taught and it really made me start to think . . . Up until now, I treated my Crystal Facials as being very separate from my other healing modalities. I’ve been pitching them as relaxation and vanity, with a side effect of balancing your bodies energies. But now I realize that everything is connected and the one common denominator to everything I do is ‘emotions’ and emotional energy! Before I get too sidetracked, let me get back to the facial story . . .

My practitioner told me that my wounds were rejection and injustice and that I didn’t have any of the other wounds. This sounded pretty accurate to me and I was already impressed.

And so my first Pranic healing facial begins.

An important part of the procedure is listening to a special meditation. I was a bit disappointed that I couldn’t always hear the words. I knew how important it would be for me to actively participate, as fully as possible, and so I did my very best to meditate and assist with the healing process using my own energy and intention. (My next priority is to pick the perfect meditation to add to my facials!)

It was the most bizarre thing I’ve ever experienced and was nothing like the crystal energy facials that I perform. I had two young ladies “working on me” and they were approximately 6 feet away during most of it. No hands nor crystals ever touched my body or my face. I have to say, I was (at first) a little disappointed because I longed to know how it feels to have the blissful hour of massage and touch that I provide.

But then it was over and we went out into the hallway to talk about “what they found.” I was completely and utterly blown away. The healer gave me information related to my chakras that was dead on. I am very intimately knowledgeable about my own body’s energy and I just couldn’t believe the things that this woman discovered about me in this one session, without ever touching or energy testing me. (Again, so different from my training.) Without getting too personal and listing all the things that came up, she basically listed every single physiological issue that I’m currently working on, as well as things that I wasn’t aware of that made total sense. For instance that in my 2nd chakra I had “blocked feminine energy” and I have a really hard time seeing myself as beautiful. Dead on – from the girl who still doesn’t know how to do hair and makeup and just knew that I would have had zero mother skills.

Not only do I think my face does look younger, but I feel great. As if the physical results on my face weren’t enough proof for me that something was indeed happening during the session, I could feel the energy moving. I seem to be a very sensitive barometer of energy. My pendulum skills are downright spooky and I can immediately feel the energy in my left arm and hand. Almost immediately at the start of the session, my usual small intestine acupressure point started ‘firing’ and my left arm got numb and tingly. At the end of the session, I also had my usual pain in my left-hand large intestine source point and pressure in my pointer finger.

I was given a list of things to do for the rest of the day (in Spanish and kudos to me for understanding them all). One interesting instruction was to “clear the energy in my space” that night. This was because I would be releasing a lot of the negative energies that were removed during the session. Well, let me tell you, I had one challenging day and night after I left the center. It seemed everything went wrong and my spirits were low. Thank goodness I could just walk over to the mirror to be happy again ? The next morning I woke up feeling great.

This is very difficult to share – a bad photo of me with very little makeup on and it’s not too useful without the “before” photo, but trust me when I tell you, my forehead doesn’t normally look like this, which is why my hair is always covering it. I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen my forehead this smooth. And the deep creases around my mouth were even relaxed. I was told that those were specifically caused by trauma (which also makes a lot of sense given my life experiences).

Needless to say that I will be investigating more about Pranic Energy Healing. It’s a bit tough to do in the US, but where there’s a will there’s a way. I am determined to add to my knowledge and somehow fuse my current hands-on Crystal Sonic Rejuvenation (that incorporates sound healing) with Pranic healing techniques . . . and if I do, the folks in the Midcoast of Maine will be in for a treat!

Kidneys Are the Foundation of Health and Vitality

Do you know how important your Kidneys are to your health and vitality?  Most people know that a major function of the kidneys is to remove waste products and excess fluid from the body. The kidneys also produce hormones that affect the function of other organs. The kidneys are powerful chemical factories that perform the following functions:

  • remove waste products from the body
  • remove drugs from the body
  • balance the body’s fluids
  • release hormones that regulate blood pressure
  • produce an active form of vitamin D that promotes strong, healthy bones
  • control the production of red blood cells

But in Chinese medicine, the Kidney (organ-meridian system AKA “the Root of Life”) is considered the foundation for good health and vitality. It is the source of the body’s constitutional or inherited energy.  This organ-meridian system governs the structural integrity and function, not only of the kidneys themselves but also:

  • brain
  • spinal cord
  • skeletal structure
  • body fluids
  • tissues (including bone marrow)
  • hormones
  • adrenals
  • sex glands
  • teeth
  • anus
  • urethra
  • inner ear

Interestingly, the areas governed by the Kidney system are fundamentally affected by the aging process, therefore reduced energy, declining hormone levels, impaired brain function, bone weakness, hearing loss, loose teeth, weakened immunity, incontinence, tissue dryness, and diminishing will power all seem to come with age. This can be why the first point on the Kidney meridian (known as K1) is also called “The Wellspring of Life” and can be the secret to anti-aging.

Kidney energy (traditionally called Qi and pronounced ‘chee) is progressively depleted with age. It is particularly vulnerable to exhaustion due to factors such as overwork, a hard-driven lifestyle, insufficient fluid intake, chronic illness, or stress. For most people by the age of 40, declining Kidney energy is beginning to impact on their health. If left unattended, imbalances in the Kidney meridian can manifest into conditions such as:

  • infertility
  • sexual dysfunction
  • menopause
  • prostate problems
  • impaired immunity
  • chronic inflammation
  • high blood pressure
  • heart irregularities
  • anxiety
  • loss of physical drive
  • poor concentration

The Kidneys are also the seat of courage and willpower, and therefore any impairment in Kidney meridian results in feelings of fear and paranoia. If you often have severe panic attacks, anxiety, and fear, your body may be trying to tell you that Kidney energy is running low or is imbalanced.

Four Ways to Keep Your Kidneys Healthy

  • Tapping your K27 points – Cluster your fingers together and pound with a fair amount of pressure on the points shown below. These are the endpoints of the Kidney Meridian. The meridian starts at the soles of your feet and end here. Stimulating these points brings vital energy to all the meridians.

  • Massage K1 acupressure points – As mentioned above, the Kidney meridian starts at the soles of your feet (pictures below). Massage these points deeply with your thumb or middle finger for about 10 seconds. This is the foundation of your energy resources and is critical to your energy level, as it provides Qi to all your other meridians. Massaging this point can help to heal poor memory, reduce agitation, anxiety, worry, and even madness.

  • Keep hydrated – Since the kidneys are particularly vulnerable to insufficient fluid intake, drinking plenty of water is critical to keeping them healthy.

  • Have your energies balanced by an energy practitioner – Couldn’t resist a little plug to come and see me for a full balancing of all your meridians.

Sensing Negative Energy in Your Body

reprint from www.healerslibrary.com

 

What is Negative Energy?

Negative energy is essentially what it sounds like. Your body has a natural energy rhythm and when your chakras are aligned, energy flows freely and directly throughout your body. When the energy in your body is negative, though, the flow of energy is not only disturbed but can bring physical and mental issues. Many people don’t know they have negative energy; they just think they are in a rut or funk. That is why learning how to spot negative or bad energy is so important.

What Does Negative Energy Do to Your Body?

Negative energy can have both physical and mental effects in the body. Because your body does not have a correct or positive energy flow when you are filled with negative energy, you may feel off. You may also experience pain in the body like headaches or stomach aches.

Learning the signs of negative energy is important. If you have negative energy trapped in your body, you may be wrongly diagnosing it without even knowing it.

What are the Signs of Negative Energy in the Body?

Signs of negative, bad energy are different for every person. You can work with a trained healer to identify your specific signs of negative energy, but it is also important to know a few general indicators of negative energy trapped in the body.

Physical and Mental Signs of Trapped Negative Energy:

  • Foggy mind
  • Feeling worn out and downtrodden
  • Headache
  • Stomach pain
  • Mood swings
  • Temper
  • Restlessness
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Impulsivity
  • Out of control emotions
  • See the world in a negative light

Who is Susceptible to Negative Energy?

People who may have experienced trauma and people who are suffering from depression are more susceptible to negative energy. If you are a trauma survivor or struggle with depression, watch yourself closely for signs of negative energy. Both trauma and depression affect your body in a way that can potentially allow more negative energy in, so it is important to always be on guard and to be actively seeking positive energy.

How to Rid Your Body of Negative Energy

Light drives out darkness, so it is best to start by combating negative energy with positive energy. When the negative energy leaves your body, you will need to fill its place with positive light to keep the negative energy away. Whether you do this on your own or with the advanced help of an experienced healer, there are several ways to push out the negative and fill your life with the positive.

Ways to Get Rid of Negative Energy:

  • Meditation
  • Self-care and self-compassion
  • Professional energy healing help
  • Yoga
