This healing modality is more active than Reiki as it uses the energy of observation and awareness to manifest changes in unhealthy energetic patterns holding the body in a state of imbalance. In every session, I will do a complete assessment of how energy is flowing in all your energy systems – circulatory, respiratory, digestive, etc., and then restore flow where there is stagnation by unwinding the energetic pattern causing the disruption.
Science has shown that human beings have an energy field extending 4 – 5 feet from the physical body – much like that of the Earth’s magnetic field and is electro-magnetic in nature. It serves to holistically support our wholeness and well being on all levels – spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically.
During the course of our lives, we experience trauma on all levels of being – spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically. These traumas include events such as falls and accidents that break and bruise our bodies, at times requiring surgery to put us back together again. These are physical traumas and are easily recognized and treated with modern medical procedures, bandages, and loving kisses.
Other types of traumas that we often recognize, but do little about are emotional traumas – grief due to loss of a loved one, a broken relationship, unmet childhood needs we’ve carried into adulthood, feelings of worthlessness, and fears which hold us in a pattern of disconnection and separation, increased difficulty feeling love, compassion and kindness – not only for others, but from others, for and from ourselves.
Mental traumas caused by stress from demands in the workplace and school, by circular thought patterns which trigger strong emotions (and vice versa), educational demands, and of course – aging.
Spiritual traumas break our spirit, create a sense of separateness & disconnection from others, from ourselves, from life. Symptoms can appear as a lost faith, abusive relationships, addictions, lack of trust in others and in self, depression, anxiety, and disengagement from life.
These traumas create distortions and imbalances in the human energy field, affecting our physical bodies in many unpleasant and often devastating ways. It is believed that these distortions and imbalances are the cause of dis-ease: such as cancer, heart problems, migraines, depression, diabetes, chronic back pain (and others) which is unresponsive to medication and treatment, to name a very few.
By bringing awareness to what is so, staying actively present to body felt sensations and the thoughts and emotions which may arise, allowing them to “unwind”, deep healing is experienced.
Integrative Energy Medicine can bring healing as it corrects these imbalances and distortions by bringing awareness to the underlying trauma, releasing holding pattern (often emotional or mental in nature), freeing the spirit to return to a more authentic way of being; unifying the human energy field and promoting deep healing on all levels – physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
