You’ve finally you booked an energy healing session -Congratulations!
Now what? Well for starters, don’t expect your healer to do all the work.
Here’s a secret: All healing is self-healing. And the more you consciously participate in your own healing process, the more satisfied you’ll be with the results.
Ultimately, you are the only one who can heal your physical body. You are the only one who can heal your relationships, eliminate your abundance issues, get over a broken heart, or think yourself out of depression.
Medical professionals, energy healers, therapists and shamans can all apply their tools and techniques to assist you in your healing journey, but only you can heal you. Whatever level of healing you achieve in this life is up to you.
Now, with that in mind I’d like to share some practical advice for getting the most out your healing sessions. I’ve been doing healing work for more than 20 years, and this is the advice I still give to my clients.
Get clear about your healing goals. Think about what you want to change or achieve in your life.
Do you want to get rid of a particular fear? Are you having money problems and want to attract more abundance? Is there a relationship you need to heal or let go? Is your goal to overcome an illness or disease?
Whatever you want to achieve, do your best to picture your desired outcome clearly. Don’t focus on the problem and how you got there. That’s old news. Focus instead on the ideal outcome. Envision the future reality you truly want to experience.
Picture your healing outcome in as much detail as possible. Imagine how you’ll feel in your new state of being.
And please write it down. Or type it. The important thing is to get it out of your head and onto the page. The act of writing out your healing intent accomplishes two things. It helps you achieve better clarity, and it starts to bring your desire into manifestation.
But what if you're not exactly clear about your focus for the healing session?
That’s perfectly OK. Make some notes and discuss it with your practitioner.
Many people have a general idea about what they want, and the clarity comes once they start discussing it with someone. A good practitioner will listen carefully and help you establish a clear, mutual focus for your healing session.
What if you have no idea what to focus on?
This scenario is fairly common, especially with first-time clients. If you have no clue where to start, think about one significant change you’d really like to make in your life.
A question to ask yourself: What is the single biggest source of stress in my life? For most people, the answer to this question provides the perfect focus for a healing session—or a series of healings.
In healing, as in every aspect of life, the more focus and clarity you have about what you want, the more successful you’ll be.
Be Ready to Relax and Receive
Chances are you’re not receiving regular weekly healing sessions. So, the session you’ve booked is kind of a big deal. Don’t waste it.
Energy healing works with subtle, non-physical energies, which means it’s hard for you to receive the full benefits of a healing session when you’re overly tired, tensed or stressed.
Do your best to get a good night’s rest before your scheduled session. And add a little extra time to your travel schedule to ensure that you can show up on time rather than rush around and get stressed about being late.
Your healing practitioner will most likely chat with you at the beginning of a session to understand you goals, explain the session format, and answer your questions.
Once the actual energy work begins, you’ll want to close your eyes and become as relaxed and receptive as possible. Deep breathing is the easiest way to do this.
Inhale slowly, gently and deeply through your nose, filling your lungs as fully as you can. As you exhale, use your intent to let go of any tension you feel in your body. Continue breathing deeply, feeling your body become more relaxed with each breath.
Recognize you're not in this alone
After a few cycles of deep breathing, silently call upon the non-physical realms to assist in your healing. In your thoughts, consciously enlist the support of your higher self and any spirit beings, angels or deities you’re comfortable calling upon. Tell them your intended goals for your healing and thank them for their participation.
