What is Energy Medicine?
All alternative or complementary medicine modalities involve manipulating the body’s energy system. Even if a modality appears to be something physical, like a flower essence or homeopathic remedy, such are in solution but energetically derived or based. The intent is to influence the energy of the body in some way.
More hands-on approaches such as Eden Energy Medicine, Reiki, Healing Touch, Touch for Health, etc., utilize the energy of the practitioner or the practitioner’s tools (magnets, crystals, stones) to intervene. It is fair to say that supplements, raw vegan diet plans and yoga also intervene in the energy flows of the body, because they each impart an energetic message to the body (though few would tout this as its primary benefit). Each modality contains a philosophy of health as defined energetically and physically, each modality contains a regimen of treatment principles and protocols, and ways of testing the need for and efficacy of treatment. If a set of activities or substances affect the energy systems of the body for its betterment, it is energy medicine.
I wish to add here that there are levels of intervention in energy medicine, depending upon the vibratory nature of the application given. This distinction is important because the best outcomes are achieved by matching the level of disorganization of the energy systems with the vibratory nature of the treatment. In other words, if only a melody is needed, the full orchestra isn’t required and could serve to obscure the melody.
I see three levels of energetic intervention related to the idea of vibratory level.
- I see the lower vibratory interventions as consisting of chemical energy as in pharmaceuticals, supplements, homeopathic remedies, naturopathic medicine and flower essences. They can be all that is required in certain disease conditions.
- The next level of intervention is direct manipulation of the energy systems of the client as in acupuncture, and hands-on techniques of Eden Energy Medicine, EFT, Touch for Health, and Reiki (and those like it). Again, these interventions can be highly effective in certain disease conditions.
- In those cases of intractable chronic disease conditions that have not been bettered by other levels of energy application, the highest level of intervention may be required, that of energy channeled from the other realm through a healer and directed to the person wherever it is needed (unknown by the healer). This is level of energy medicine in which I work.
My Energy Medicine Practice:
Though I have been trained in hands-on techniques through the Eden Energy Medicine Certification program, as well as in other programs and classes, I choose to work exclusively now in the spiritual realm of energy medicine as taught by Dixie Yeterian. In this area of energy medicine I am no longer thinking of myself as the healer. Healing is truly the process of bringing information from the other realm that the body needs to correct itself in its energetic and subsequent physical functioning. I am manipulating the person’s energy and physical systems and sometimes (as in distant healing) I can see such manipulation taking place, but I am not the director of the healing, I am the conduit. Success is dependent upon the contract between the person and his/her (God, Spirit, higher power, intelligent energy field). I am the middleman, the receptionist, interpreter, teacher, and confidant. It is healing at the highest, most purposeful level.
Success is dependent on several factors: 1) whether or not the disease condition is the way in which the person intends to exit this life, and has or has not changed his/her mind about exiting; 2) the emotional landscape that has given rise to the dis-ease and subsequent physical illness will change; 3) the person understands his/her larger story—the role that the disease plays, what set it up, what keeps it going, what has to change, what has to be given up to make that change; 4) the person is able to develop a deeper relationship with the HEALER though meditation, prayer, thoughtfulness, mindfulness and acceptance of all that is; and lastly, 5) the person can develop a love and appreciation for self.
What I offer is counseling, dream interpretation, hands-on healing and distant healing. All involve information from the other realm. All is healing.
