Energy Awareness Reflections
Energy: Many people ask me how I got started in the energy work world. My answer is that I did not know I was stepping into this world of energy. I knew it felt familiar and it gave me words and language for my experiences of working with the body during Occupational Therapy sessions. The experiences were not something I talked about with my work buddies. I would say the things I saw and felt were strange and unusual….at least in the “regular” world.
“How did you get started in the Energy world?”
I am thankful for my friend who invited me to a Reiki workshop. It was a great place to start learning about the world of energy. Reiki is very simple to learn and practice. Anyone can take a class and it’s an easy to use the Reiki energy with family and friends. Yes, there are people that go on and create a profession around Reiki. They offer sessions to the public. You do not need to do this. Reiki is like learning a type of energetic first aid. No tool kit needed.
I have taken many more workshops spanning multiple models of energy work…. Integrated Energy Therapy®(IET), Magnified Healing®, Melchizedek Method, etc….. Each one has a different concept of energy principles around where the energy comes from and how to use it. Basically, they are all using different vibrations of healing energy. This is great! Everyone is an individual, so each person needs their own combination of frequencies. I love this and use the approach of best-technique-for-the-
individual in every one of my customized client sessions.
Energy work is especially useful for those of us who are very sensitive. Energy work speaks the language of vividness, illuminating the meaning around our daily encounters with life. In energy workshops I find like minded people sitting next to me. They describe similar stories about their lives… being told they are too sensitive, that they need to toughen up, etc. Yet through their sensitivity they are in touch with truth they could not possibility otherwise know or see.
I have found that each energy workshop helps me to navigate my very sensitive self and be more mindful that I am not alone in this.
I hope this was helpful for those of you who are curious about energy work and where to start!
I hope to see you at one of the upcoming energy workshops at Healing Way Center.
Big Hugs and Much Love,
