One of the things I love about energy work is the fact that it is so fluid; it doesn’t fit into a box and there isn’t just one way to practice it in order for it to be profoundly effective. In the past year and a half, energy workers such as myself have had to adapt to the circumstances with our work and how we energetically support ourselves, our families, and our clients. Everyone is in need of extra support in this environment and one of the ways energy practitioners can do this is to offer distance healing.
Those who don’t understand how this works may question the efficacy of it, but it’s actually quite simple: it works with intention and the channeling of universal life force energy. We are all energetic beings with a frequency and a vibration. A qualified practitioner can easily connect in with a client’s energy field, regardless of either’s location. I accomplish this in my practice by using Reiki and/or Archangelic Light to read the energy in a client’s body; then I focus the healing energy where it is most needed. In order for my client to get the most out of a remote session, I first connect in to my client with a phone conversation. After we talk, I ask my client to lie down in a comfortable space in their home to receive the session, we hang up, and I conduct the session and record any session messages on my phone. Finally, I have a wrap-up conversation with the client afterwards to address how the session went and how they are feeling, and I send them the session recording.
Besides the energy session, I offer my clients easy tips on how to stay centered and balanced in their daily lives, as everyone is under extra stress these days. Earthing is one really good and simple tool I use often. The theory behind Earthing (or grounding) is that the electrical charges from the earth create a positive healing effect on the body. There are many ways one can do this, but the way I earth is to stand or walk barefoot in the grass or dirt in 10 minute increments throughout the day. For me, this practice feels soothing and makes me feel more connected to the world around me. Light walking and exercise, such as yoga, also helps to keep one centered and balanced between the mind and body. As soon as I feel like I am too much in my head, I know it’s time to get the energy flowing with some movement and grounding.
