Are we Energetic Beings and what does this even mean? Or is this just some New Age nonsense that is prevalent in the news and social media?
I believe that we are all made of Energy. Every single process that occurs in our body involves energy. Doctors measure the electrical energy of our heart via an Electrocardiogram, an ECG. Our brain activity is measured via an Electroencephalogram, an EEG. Every nerve connection, the release of every hormone and the chemical messages that take place in our body on a constant basis, all involve an exchange of energy.
We are all energetic beings. If you doubt this, just rub your hands together. What do you create? Heat. Heat is energy.
Why is this energy important? Because it affects our overall health. The functioning of every cell in our body is affected by this flow of energy. Scientists have found that an electrical energy exists between a cell and its’ cell membrane. When disease occurs, this energy is depleted.
Reflexologists, kinesiologists, reiki masters, acupuncturists, cranial sacral therapists and many other practitioners, all tap into this energy. The Hindus call it Prana and the Chinese, Chi. It is our life force.
Our emotions also affect the flow of this energy. In her book, ‘Molecules of Emotion,’ neuroscientist Candace Pert talks about the connection between our emotions and our minds. She discusses how chemicals are released in response to different emotions. When blocked emotions are released through touch or other methods, the energy pathways in our body are restored.
While Western medicine only measures energy in terms of metabolic processes in the body, many ancient and complementary therapists see our Life force energy as a combination of our physical and emotional being. Candace Pert sees this energy as a flow of information carried by our emotions and their biochemical messengers.
So what affects this flow of energy throughout our body? The reasons are varied but they include stress, our environment, sleep, the food we eat, our emotions and how we deal with life’s challenges. All of these factors may lead to disease. If there is a balance, in all aspects of our lives, the flow of energy is not disrupted and leads to health.
As a Reflexologist, I work with your energy. What does this mean? It means that by using various maps of the face, nerve points and acupuncture points, I can tap into your energy and work with your body to rebalance it. All your energetic pathways, your circulation, nerve supply, endocrine system are stimulated to bring your body back into balance.
So next time you think of your Body, marvel at its’ many accomplishments. Your body is always working to support you. You are an energetic being filled with a vibrant life force. Sometimes this is depleted and needs some assistance to restore but never forget that healing is possible. It’s what your body is always striving to do.
I also wanted to tell you about a wellness device that I have been using called the Healy. It uses both a micro current and a frequency to restore the energy of your cells. The micro current works to restore the depleted energy of the cells while the frequency works directly on your bioenergetic field, that is, all systems, organs, tissues and cells of the body. It has helped me with sleep, back pain and boosting my immune balance, to name just a few of its’ benefits.
It is on sale until the end of June. From the 1st July it is changing to a subscription model and prices are increasing. I just wanted to tell you about, it in case you are interested.
