Becoming a Believer in the Power of Energy Healing
by Val Silver
The story below shares the incident that took me from a skeptic to a 'believer' in the possibilities of healing with energy. The rest, as they say, is history.
"Mom! My arm. It's warm."
Those were the words my teen son spoke as he lay in a bed, waiting for jaw surgery. The IV was causing him a lot of discomfort. His arm and hand from the IV down were cold. His fingers were curled in an involuntary fist. The nurses came to check it four times, always saying it was fine. I was feeling frustrated, and knew I just had to do something.
A few weeks before this, I had taken my first Therapeutic Touch class. Even though I took the class and maybe felt 'some things', I still wasn't sure I believed this energy healing thing was for real.
Tentatively, and worried that someone would see me, I slowly moved my hand a few inches above his arm, from elbow to fingers. I could feel denseness and a drag over the IV area. Encouraged, I continued. After a few passes I watched in amazement as his clenched fist gave way to an open hand. I heard my son say, "Mom, my arm, it's warm."
Was this the infamous placebo effect at work? I don't see how it could have been. My son, already partly sedated, had no clue what I was doing. He didn't even see me. I barely believed it could possibly work myself. I
was just a mother desperate to do something to help her son. That was all I could think of and figured it was worth a try.
That's not the end of the story. After surgery, my son was in horrific pain, even with meds. So again I took a leap of faith and decided to do more healing with energy work for him.
Making the TT passes in front of his face seemed to help him relax a bit. He could not talk, but at times would sign frantically to me to make more clearing passes. Days later, when he could finally talk, I asked if TT took the pain away. He said, no, but it helped him bear it.
Full recuperation was supposed to take six to nine months. Knowing that healing with energy could significantly speed healing, I did more energy healing work for him over the next few weeks.
This, along with excellent nutrition and full compliance with doctors orders, helped him recover quickly. Ten weeks after surgery, the doctor stood in amazement as he looked at the films again and again muttering, "I can't believe it, look at these X-rays." He was given permission to resume any and all activities.
Needless to say, this experience made a believer out of both of us. I went on to complete all three levels of TT and advanced training as well. I have since studied other bio energy healing methods and vibrational remedies. I haven't looked back since.
