How Energy Healing Changed My Life
Updated: Dec 9, 2019
No one's talking about energy healing, but they should be. I'll go first.
I was first introduced to energy healing several years ago. One of my loved ones had been very sick emotionally and mentally for years. We took the route most people would take to deal with this. First, counseling. Then, mental health testing. Next, medication prescribed by a psychiatrist. More counseling. Hospitalization for threats of suicide. More meds. Experiential therapy. More hospitalizations. Stronger meds. This was our reality for over 5 years.
We did have good days; it wasn't all bad. But when I look back on this period of time, it was a nightmare, and surely no way for anyone or any family to live their lives. We had begun using essential oils which provided a lot of benefit, but my loved one was still on medications that were causing adverse effects. I learned we couldn't even safely get them off of their medication without hospitalization. After another breakdown resulting in hospitalization, the psychiatrist on staff supported our decision to remove the medications. After two weeks of detoxing, my loved one was back to rejoin society. As you can imagine, this transition was not easy.
A lot of our "support" system did not support the decision to remove the medication. Instead of trying to work with my family, our support system was determined to make us somebody else's problem. Seeing we were continuing to struggle, a friend asked if I had ever heard of BodyTalk, a form of energy healing. I had not, but I immediately contacted the practitioner to schedule an appointment. We were near rock bottom, and I was willing to try anything at this point.
We noticed a benefit after the very first appointment, even more after the second, and the third. We had intense treatment with the practitioner over the next several weeks, and I was blown away by the difference it was making for my family. It was almost like a complete 180-degree turnaround both emotionally and physically. To see my loved one once again begin to feel good, excel, and thrive, was the only thing I had hoped for. Seeing how fast the results of this work were, I found myself feeling angry and hurt when I reflected back on the YEARS, the MONEY, and the TEARS we had shed on a widely accepted practice of medicating and counseling that clearly did not work for us. Surely those steps help tremendous amounts of people, but when it doesn't, where do you turn?
Energy Healing is Not New
Energy healing is not new, so why when my family was struggling did I not know about it or why didn't anyone tell me about it? When the struggles first began, why was the initial reaction to evaluate and medicate (not to mention totally dehumanize in the process, too)? Why did we have to hit rock bottom for someone to finally say, hey, have you heard about energy healing? It's like energy healing is this big secret people are keeping, and I don't understand why.
As I've gone through my trainings and education to be able to provide energy healing for myself and others, I've learned several of my peers had similar experiences of being sick for a ridiculous amount of time while following modern medicine treatments and procedures, and had finally reached the end of their rope, just like my family had. Energy healing was also the 'last resort' for them. Knowing what I know now, being able to provide this path of natural wellness to not only my family but others as well, I want to yell from the rooftop, "This doesn't have to be your last resort!" I burst from every seam when I see others hurting, and I want to help, because I KNOW there's a way to help.
Tell Someone about Energy Healing- They Need to Hear It
Perhaps if people consult energy healing early on, they'll be able to address issues before they become big issues, before they hit rock bottom. Energy is everything. Energy affects our emotional, physical and spiritual well-being. When we experience discord in these areas, it can be traced to energetic origins that need to be moved or cleared. There is definitely a need for modern medicine, don't get me wrong, but there is definitely a need for energy healing as well. And it doesn't have to be the last resort.
