Psychological Healing Energy Process
As a retired energy healing therapist I have spent my entire career trying to “clear” the painful traumatic energies from the past. I have primarily used Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy better known as EMDR. This incredible treatment is able to permanently relieve the symptoms of a traumatic event in your life. This psychological therapy is especially helpful for Veterans, although the VA does not offer it. All of the initial research on this process was done with VETS. Talk therapy is not helpful with PTSD because the part of the brain that holds the traumatic event is not able to be reached by talking. EMDR allows the entire event to be moved to the frontal lobe where you can use talk therapy to finish the treatment.
While focusing on the memories the therapist will have you move your eyes back and forth or use headphones to allow you to hear alternating beeps. Although we are still not able to show how EMDR is relieving the trauma, we have shown that EMDR is relieving the trauma. PET scans show that the previously distressed areas of the brain become quiet and the frontal lobe–the thinking and reasoning part of your brain becomes active again. This means that negative thoughts about yourself that have been locked in with the trauma, are released, and the person is able to more accurately assess how they did during a traumatic event. I recommend the book EMDR: the Breakthrough Therapy for Overcoming Anxiety, Stress, and Trauma.
However, what I have become aware of in the past few years is that there are opportunities to do some major “clearing” outside of the therapy office. I would like to suggest healing energies that I find are really helpful whether you are in therapy or not.
Reiki is one of the most well known forms of energy healing. Reiki practitioners serve as conduits or channels for chi to be delivered to you through the practitioner’s hands. The chi or healing energy, naturally goes to the places in your body that are in need of healing. Clients usually experience a peaceful feeling and often the incredible warmth coming from the Reiki master’s hands. Reiki can be used with humans and animals for physical and emotional healing. I highly recommend Julie Rebensdorf who does Reiki on both humans and animals. She is able to offer Reiki remotely so even if you don’t live in Cincinnati, she is able to help you. I have personally seen amazing healings occur with her work.Her website is Reikitouches.
Yoga is a physical way to align your body and your energy. It is a powerful way for folks who have trouble meditating to actually use movement to lead them to an inner meditation with the stress of trying to be still. Irena Miller is a fabulous yoga teacher and energy healer who offers yoga online if you don’t live here in Cincinnati. I highly recommend that you check out her website Irenamiller.com She can teach you how to address a multitude of issues through the use of yoga and to have fun while you do it.
Clearing energies are very high vibrational energies that surround the painful or dense energy in your auric field and begin to raise the frequency of your energy. Raising the frequency of your energy field is really a definition of healing. In the case of the Pulse Technique it continues to work on the dense energy until it is clear, no matter how long that takes. Each of these techniques is very easy to use and free for the user. I highly recommend that you experiment with them and see what you are drawn to use. One way to determine if the clearing energies are helping you is to notice whether the distress is reduced or eliminated while you are using the technique.
To give you an example, let’s say that you have had an argument with a friend and feel very upset. You use one of these techniques and find that after a few minutes you are able to think about the argument without the same level of upset. Then that clearing energy is in fact working. It does not mean that you don’t still need to work things out with your friend. It only means that you are so much better able to work things through in a positive and loving way.
The two clearing energies that I recommend are the Jo Dunning’s Pulse Technique which is demonstrated by Debra Cummings in a youtube video and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Both are available to you online 24 hours a day for free.
The importance of clearing energies at this time in history is relevant. We are called at this time to clear as much of the dense, painful energy as we can so that the vibration on earth is higher as we get closer to the 2012 events. Anyone reading this knows that the energy on earth right now is INTENSE. Lifting the vibration to a higher level benefits everyone and every living thing on the planet. Please use these fabulous opportunities to release old hurts and to live more fully in joy.
