The beauty of universal energy healing principles is that, regardless of method, many energy healers share a common core of principles that form the foundation of what they believe, teach, and practice. These principles include beliefs about its spiritual aspects, helpful attitudes and expectations, use of tools, and channeling a pure, high vibrational frequency.
Universal energy healing literally means using energy from the universe, or the spiritual realm, to facilitate healing. This energy from the universe is for universal use: it is available to all.
Some people consider this force to be much more than energy. They are probably correct.
As we learn about human biofields, we are discovering that living beings are much more than just energy (with a minuscule amount of matter). We are, more accurately, beings of light. The photons generated by our cells go out into the field extending beyond our skin. This field carries light and information about the workings of our bodies and the all encompassing universal field.
This understanding of the energetic informational field extends to the concept that, in a sense, we are all one. We all share the universal field and are connected to each other through this field.
Energy healing affects body, mind, and spirit. For this reason, many practitioners consider it a sacred, spiritual practice that touches them as much as the person receiving the energy. Some believe that, during a session, angels and helpers from another realm come and assist with the healing.
Healing with energy is often called spiritual energy healing with good reason. Accessing universal energy for healing has strong spiritual aspects to it. Although belief, or faith, on the part of the receiver is not a requirement for the energy to influence the levels of the biofield, it is helpful if it is not hindered or blocked by resistance. At the least, the person must be willing to accept the healing. Faith on the part of practitioners is important so that they can be an open channel.
From a spiritual viewpoint, the divine nature of a person is not being healed, that is already perfect. Rather, energy from the Divine, or the universe, is channeled through an energy healer. This pure, high frequency facilitates wellness in the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual layers of the field.
Unconditional love is of the highest vibrational frequency. When healing is offered from a space of unconditional love, acceptance, and compassion, the highest, purest energy is transmitted and received. This holds true whether someone spontaneously offers a loving hug or touch or a fancy treatment.
When a healer sets a clear intention for the highest good of the receiver (a form of unconditional love) without agenda or expectation of specific results, that is what will happen. This is why it is important for facilitators to put their own interests and problems aside during a session. This is also why it is important for them to have spiritual practices and to evolve personally.
Energy follows intent and thoughts are energy. As you hold the vision of the person as whole, complete being, that thought carries energy. Our divine, spiritual selves are whole and healthy. Spiritual energy healing helps us reconnect with that truth.
Although not all energy healers and recipients hold the same set of beliefs about what happens during a session, how the healing process works, whether one technique is better than another, or if we should expect a certain outcome, the following principles are held in common by a majority of practitioners.
The term energy healer is a misnomer. This universal energy healing principle is a bit of a paradox. Although no one heals alone, no person heals another. Healers facilitate and assist you in your healing process. They may hold the intention, vision, or a 'blueprint' for wholeness and health in their minds, but it is the subconscious mind and the aura of the receiver that accepts and uses it to bring about balance and wellness. It is up to that person to open, receive, and assimilate the incoming vibrational frequency. It is up to their field to direct the energy where it is needed. For these reasons, all healing is ultimately self-healing. It is unrealistic to expect someone else to heal you.
Although practitioners and recipients often come to a session with desired outcomes in mind, a commonly accepted universal energy healing principle is that a session is most effective when the primary goal is simply to facilitate the highest good of the receiver. This means that even if energy is offered or directed to a certain area, the energy field may choose to use it elsewhere. This does not mean the healing failed. Healing is facilitated, not controlled. It may or may not do what you wish.
Having said that, there are techniques, such as clearing, that can and do directly affect a specific area that is traumatized. Clearing the field is one of my favorite go-to techniques to use on myself and others because I have seen it get results, like it did for my son. However, the distinction is that when clearing, you are not so much putting in energy as smoothing the field and allowing it to reorganize.
A practitioner channels a higher vibration so that the receiver's field can resonate with that vibration, use it as it sees fit, and raise its vibration. This is known as harmonic resonance. How long that vibration is held is up to the body, mind and field of the receiver.
The first time, the vibration may only be held for minutes before returning to its previous state. Each time the frequency is received, it may be held longer and longer. This vibration may have to be introduced several times over the course of weeks or months for the body and field to assimilate it and adjust to the new frequency before it becomes more permanent. It is possible to channel this energy for yourself, but usually works better if someone else does it for you since your body and field are accustomed to your energy.
Since we live in artificial, stressful toxic environments, it is helpful to have some sort of energy therapy regularly to get and stay in balance. Also, like an onion, when one layer is peeled away, there is opportunity to heal and grow on a deeper and more expansive level.
How well you grasp this principle affects whether energy healing is a source of frustration or joy for you. There is no space for ego here. It is about surrender and trust versus control and expectation.
Energy is energy. Specific healing techniques help you access and facilitate a healing frequency. They provide a method, or framework, that build confidence and help you learn to play with energy, either for all time or until you sense and respond to it spontaneously. There are also tools and methods that can help you achieve a specific result.
Beginners often start by learning a technique such Therapeutic Touch and Reiki. Reiki is a form of energy healing that has become very popular over the last 20 years. It requires an attunement and training by a Reiki master. Once attuned, the practitioner channels into the receiver using a variety a hand positions.
As they progress, they may stick with just that method or learn others. Eventually, many healers adapt them or combine techniques as they sense they are needed. They allow themselves to break free of a specific method so they can 'play in the field'. This works because they hold to the principles of universal energy healing and trust that together, the channeled energy and the field will guide them to use of their tools for specific purposes and ultimately for the receiver's highest good.
As mentioned above, clearing is one of the methods I frequently use. It seems to benefit most people during a session. Another fascinating technique that can work quickly is the Quantum Touch hip balancing method. My aunt actually yelled at me when she had momentary trouble readjusting her gait after a few seconds of balancing. She was used to walking with one hip higher than the other. It never ceases to amaze me how the body can find balance in a matter of seconds.
If you want to be an energy healer, be prepared to heal and grow spiritually and to advance your personal evolution.
One universal energy healing principle I resisted in my early days as a student of the healing arts is that working as an energy healer changes you and your beliefs. The thought of becoming a better person according to my ideas was an expectation I took as positive. That it would cause me to dismantle my spiritual belief system seemed highly unlikely. I thought I already had that truth.
Boy was I wrong and I am so glad I was! I began to realize that we truly are all one. The energy favors no one. Despite my biases toward people or their beliefs, when I set the intention to facilitate healing for someone and entered their field, I felt only love and wonder for them. I still feel that to this day.
It may be true that the energy was healing them, but it was also healing me. This is one of the greatest universal energy healing lessons we are to learn. It is true that all healing is self-healing. When you offer healing energy work to another, you are also healing yourself. The energy does not go through you without touching you and healing you spiritually as well.
As an energy healer, always have a beginner's mind. Put your ego aside. Continue to learn more about the field and new ideas and methods for healing with universal energy develop and evolve. There is no arriving. It is all about being open and becoming more spiritually in tune and whole, not about being tied to a method or a set of beliefs.
