Bioenergetic Healing

How it works…

All of us are familiar with various forms of energy, such as magnetism, electricity and both light and heat from the sun. Another common form is electromagnetic energy which is produced when electricity is passed through a wire coil, creating a magnetic field.

Healing energy can be described as bio-electromagnetic energy because it seems to carry an electrical charge, to have magnetism and to be produced naturally by the human body. Some people can literally see this energy as colors, others hear it as sounds, and almost everyone can feel it.

Vital energy runs through all of life. It connects our bodies with our minds and souls. It links us with other people, with our homes and nature, with the universe and the highest spiritual power. We cannot see this subtle yet powerful force – but its affects rule every moment of our being. When our vital energy is sluggish or unawakened, life seems dull or difficult, work is a chore; our homes never feel quite right. On the other hand, if our energy is running out of control, life is a roller-coaster: we feel constantly stressed and strained, and we seem to exist in a world of arguments and irritability. However, once we begin to recognize vital energy and begin to work with it, everything can change. Our lives can take on fresh meaning and purpose. When our own vital energy is moving smoothly and serenely through us, we can enjoy radiant good health, abundant vitality and a sense of ease in our bodies. Our relationships become honest, exciting and supportive. Our homes become places of serenity and joy, filled with a warm, embracing atmosphere. We start to feel a link of kinship with the whole of creation – from urban cityscape to the wild elements of nature. Best of all, we no longer feel alone in a large, often frightening universe: we become linked to spirit, joined to the source of all energy.

Because energy is a natural force, left to its own devices it will, like water, take the easiest route. If nothing stands in its way, it will flow smoothly and harmoniously, like a river running through a wide, straight plane. If however, it is forced into a narrow, restrictive pattern it will roar fast and furious – like a river forced between steep ravines. If on the other hand, it becomes caught or entangled, it will become heavy and stagnant, like the water in a pool or a sidebend of a river, where it slowly becomes rank and murky. So our aim is to allow the vital energy around us to flow smoothly, taking away any restrictions without allowing it to run too wildly or crazily.

In the near future, I believe energy workers will become a familiar, accepted part of everyday life. We will think nothing of healing our bodies with energy, rather than crude medications or surgeries. Ancient civilizations understood that we are not just flesh and bones; we are infused with a subtle form of energy that cannot be seen by most. Healers from China, India, Tibet and the Middle East all mapped the subtle energy centers and pathways of the body and used them for precise healing. Shamanic cultures from all around the world have shifted energy in their ceremonies often with miraculous results.

For many years complementary and alternative therapists have worked with subtle energy and seen with their own eyes that, by working on the esoteric level, they could bring about huge changes in the physical body. It has been proven that energy therapists can effectively create physical change. We stand on the brink of an explosion in energy medicine.

This will become the ultimate form of preventative medicine, gently healing emotional trauma and even genetic material before it turns into physical pain and disease.

Examples of Energy Locked in the Body

Energy can be locked in the body in many different ways. It can be locked in on a mental, physical, emotional or spiritual level, or in any combination of these levels. On a physical level, the body absorbs and retains chemicals and unresolved emotions in the cells, muscles, bones and organs. On a mental and emotional level, there are times when memories and emotions which were either suppressed or forgotten are re-experienced and remembered as an individual is receiving a session. If you accept that the body, mind and spirit are always seeking a return to wholeness, it is easier to understand how the healing energy can assist a person in triggering and releasing these blockages. The extra energy provided in a healing session can release trauma locked in the body from accidents, abuse, fear, or loss of a family member or pet.

Chemicals, drugs, alcohol and food contaminants remain in the body much longer than most of us realize and can affect our overall health. Blocked energy can take the form of trauma, fear, anger, hurt, grief, shame, guilt, pain, shock or resentment. Childhood traumas, events that happened or even words that were said a long time ago, can hurt and carry through into adulthood, robbing us of our aliveness and spontaneity. Children raised in homes where alcoholism, drug abuse, sexual abuse or other kinds of abuse occurred develop coping methods in order to survive. These coping methods, while helping a person survive childhood, often lead to or develop into problems as these children become adults. It is not uncommon for these people to either shut down emotionally or to become abusers themselves. When emotional pain becomes so great that a person is unable to deal with it, they tend to shut down and pretend it isn’t there. They might lash out at others, sometimes not even knowing why. The energy is stored of the unresolved trauma by locking it in the body. Even if the situation happened only once, an unresolved and unreleased trauma can become trapped within the body and its energy field, causing tension, stress and possibly pain/disease.

As a person receives bioenergy therapy sessions they can get in touch with the past trauma hence releasing it and all of its adverse affects on their body and in their life. This is a natural process, which allows a person to resolve issues and to become more alive. As we begin to heal and release the pain of our past, we allow more room for love, peace, joy and acceptance in our lives.
