How Energy Healing ‘Found Me’. – Part Two

click here if you missed ‘Part One’.

Fast forward to the mid 2000’s. Even though I had pretty much ignored my natural healing abilities, I was still asking myself a lot of questions regarding life, spirituality, our purpose here, etc. How are we connected to a higher power? …to each other? Are we connected to nature?

By that time, Dany (my current wife) had been contemplating the same types of things I was. One book that both hit us like a ton of bricks was: ‘Seth Speaks: The Eternal Validity of the Soul‘. She started reading it first and was so moved by it that she suggested I read it at the same time. I started reading it too. So there was this book, with two bookmarks hanging out of it… It’s the kind of book that some sentences, paragraphs, even pages had to be reread just to wrap my head around the information in there. Some of those ideas were so foreign to me but seemed to make so much sense at the time of reading. It almost felt like I was being reminded of these things instead of being taught them. I remember thinking: “…well, yeah… Why didn’t I already believe this?…”

One day, Dany asked me if I wanted to join her for a psychic reading. I had never experienced that before so I was quite curious about it. When it was my turn for the reading one of the first things she (the reader) said was: “You’re a healer!!”

“No, I’m a computer programmer.”  Thinking she meant that I was working in a health profession.

“No No, your aura has a lot of green around your head. Green is the colour associated with healing… and I’m told you’re a healer…”

I probably had one of my best blank stares going on. She started explaining what energy healing was, mentioning different modalities like Reiki and Chios. I could smell some burning dust… it was the light bulb that just came on in my head. I HAD DONE THIS BEFORE!! I’M NOT CRAZY!!! (I have returned to questioning this now, but not for the same reasons…)

Two months later I was in Ottawa for business and made an appointment with a local psychic reader there. Not that I doubted the first one, but with something this big happening to me I just needed more info. After a few minutes, he did say that just before I arrived for the reading that he felt a “popping” sensation in the palm of his hands. Being a Reiki practitioner himself, the palm of his hands were very sensitive to energy. The hands are a healer’s main instrument in manipulating energy, especially the palms. I appreciated the second opinion.

Dany had also bought a book called Quantum-Touch: The Power To Heal. I hadn’t really noticed this other than she was playing the CD that came with the book in the car all the time. The CD was of the author sharing his experiences using the techniques to help people heal. That was the first book on healing that I read. What I learned most from this book was to keep working with visualizations. I also learned the importance of breath work in energy healing, something that I have become somewhat known for doing. I get quite a few comments on that aspect of my technique which I admit can be kinda weird the first time you see me work. But I’m getting ahead of myself here… At the time, I still wasn’t quite sure if or how I’d be doing this stuff…

And shortly after that, maybe a month or so later I performed my first public healing, unexpected, witnessed by about six or seven people (at least 2 or 3 of you are potentially reading this now.)

I was almost terrified in the moments leading up to it, thanks to my lingering insecurities. But it turned out perfectly.

 

Full details of that story in an upcoming post…

 

A Little Relaxation Tip and Exercise In Mindfullness

Since part two of my autobiographical blog post: How Energy Healing Found Me isn’t quite ready yet, I’ll share a quick visualization I use to help me in times of stress. You don’t need to know about meditation, grounding, chakras, and all that. However, you’ll still be doing/using all of them.

Let’s assume the stress is of an external nature like an ongoing disagreement with family or friend, or some issue at work.

First I assess my immediate physical environment:

– Am I physically comfortable? Am I sitting or standing in a comfortable position? Is there pain coming from any part of my body?

I ensure I am comfortable and in no pain. If some of you are in constant pain, maybe skip this question or substitute it with : ‘Is there unusually intense pain…’. Am I in good health? (…that I know of…) All seems good.

Check.

– Am I in physical danger?

Is someone or something actively trying to kill me? Is the building about to come down and crush me as I’m sitting comfortably? (Insert your favourite ‘Final Destination’-type scenario here) …so far it’s been no.

Check.

 – Can I survive OK for the foreseeable future?

Do I have food, water, a place to stay, a roof over my head, etc… So far so good.

Check.

– Do I have friends and family who love me (and like me)?

Yes.

Check.

 

Then I just visualize myself floating in this painless, loving comfort (hmm, …visualization…, sounds like a future topic). Take as long as you can or need. You can picture yourself in a kiddie pool, a transparent bubble, or even a ‘comfort-insulated’ space suit. The longer you stay here, the better it is for you. If you want you can carry that around with you (in the bubble or space suit) and refer your consciousness to it occasionally, while doing other things. Going back to this visualization often will have an cbd products of ‘diluting’ stress.

Try it. It might be a bigger help to cope with your stress than you would think.

 

 

How Energy Healing ‘Found Me’.- Part One

In the late 1990s, I had never heard of Reiki or energy healing other than maybe seeing it done in a movie, by a ‘medicine man’ or some asian guy high up on a mountain somewhere. I certainly didn’t believe it could be done by any ‘normal’ person.

I am an empath. I can usually feel when others around me aren’t feeling quite right physically or emotionally. The physical stuff can be quite obvious because you can often see it whether it’s a limp or a slight facial expression. I am also very sensitive to how people react emotionally during conversations. I’m not saying I’ve never unknowingly said something stupid that made someone feel bad, it’s just that more often than not, I kinda get a real-time emotional play-by-play of how others are doing. And as much a

s possible, I want people around me to be well and happy.

At the time, my wife (now ex-wife) regularly had migraines. Of course this bothered me a lot. This one time, we were lying in bed. The lights had been off for a while and my wife was lying still, moving the least possible. I put my hand on top of her head, closed my eyes and visualized the migraine leave her head and go into my hand. I didn’t realize it at the time but I was in a meditative state; my hand felt locked in place.

After about ten to fifteen minutes, she quickly turned her head toward me and asked me if I had a headache. I was kinda startled because she had limited her movements because of the migraine and also, I was in this meditative state and maybe even half-sleeping by then (half-sleep and meditation are very similar to me). Then she said:

– “Do you have a headache?”

– “No I don’t. Why?”

– “My headache is gone!”

Then, since I was half asleep already I think I just fell asleep trying to comprehend exactly what had just happened. She must have also fell asleep from the relief.

I’m not sure what made me try that. It’s as if a part of me knew it would work and just took over. The other part of me must not have agreed, because it was still incredulous, trying to dismiss what had taken place like we often do. “Oh, it was just heat from my hand that relaxed her and she forgot about the headache.” …or something stupid like that. “…a placebo effect…” (Hmmm, ‘placebo effect’ that sounds like a future topic…)

After that, we kept ‘treating’ her migraines the same way for some time. I still didn’t really understand or believe what was really happening (other than that other part of me that did). I had a hard time even talking about it. You see, I was very insecure about myself in general. So there was no way that I would be able to do something cool like this. I’m pretty much over those insecurities today; I’m fairly confident about most aspects of myself. Although, some insecurities creep up once in a while but not very often, thankfully.

Unfortunately, we broke up shortly after discovering this and I shoved the whole thing aside and never really thought about it.  …until about 10 years later.

 

** I was planning on finishing this topic in one post, but I’ll keep it a bit shorter and split them. My next post will be about how I re-discovered my healing abilities ten years later.
