Keeping in mind that there is always more then one way to do things, I would like to share this. Because despite other ways working I’d rather the practitioner suffer less as a result so here’s a possible alternative based on how I was taught.
Rule #1 If a healer sacrifices their own well being either by choice or lack of training then they are limiting their ability to function in the future. Obviously a sick healer is in need of a healer. Just like medical personal, you should take proper precautions to protect yourself so that you can help your patient. Allowing yourself to become a part of the issue could cause any number of problems for both of you. So here’s some basics. For the sake of example, let’s say our patient has a headache.
Where does the energy come from?
You but it’s not yours. Let me explain. When we ground ourselves, we balance out our energy by trading with the earth. So we are already receiving and exchanging energy. When we go to heal someone we are going to perform a similar exercise with some adaptation. If you look at the picture you will see arrows coming in directing to a bowl in your chest or stomach region. The reason they are coming from your feet and your head is because some choose to ground themselves and then draw from more then one source of energy to fill this bowl. Be it a higher power, the universe, the sky, whatever you choose you are going to first ground yourself with these energies and then gently encourage it to fill a spot inside of you for you to use. This way you are not using your energy and depleting yourself to fix another. Yes, as you practice you are going to get tired. But it is a huge difference from what you’d feel if it’s not channeled energy. Especially after a long session.
Now focus on filling this bow or reservoir inside of you. Condense it and collect it. After you feel you have collected enough then let it over flow and encourage it to run down your arms to your hands. Let it flow into the person you are working on in a smooth current. Pay attention to where it goes. If it gets pulled to one area like their left shoulder then try feeling what’s wrong while you direct the energy the or better. Ask them. To ask a client a question is not a bad thing. Not unless you ask to many that are very wrong, in which case you need to practice more on feeling and reading the or energy.
You my feel hot or cold or tingles from the energy. The person you are working on May feel something completely different. They may even fall asleep. Take this as a compliment that it is. Smooth the energy that you come in contact with. Just like you would with a blanket or frosting. Never absorb the energy you come in contact with from another. Brush it off however it works best for you and send it into the ground away from both of you. And always pay attention to where your energy is coming from. If you start feeling tired then stop immediately. If you feel that the energy is yours them stop. All these mistakes put you at risk of becoming sick yourself.
This is your basic. With it you can help with headaches and other small aches. But remember. You do not replace a doctor and if their is doubt then seek one immediately. It is better to err on the side of caution.
