Interested in learning more about energy healing? Spiritual healer Barbara Brennan explains all you need to know about this holistic practice
What is energy healing?
We are all made of energy. Energy is consciousness. When we connect to the universal source of energy we can transform our lives. Energy healing is the process whereby we are supported in the process of this connection. Energy healing practitioners, no matter what school they are taught at or from which perspective they come from all must do one basic thing, and that is assist you in your connection to the universal energy source. This connection may come in the form of hands on energy work such as Reiki or Brennan Healing
Science, distance healing, shamanistic healing and sound healing – the list is long and can be as simple as a mother’s hug or a complex ceremony.

Energy healing practitioners can be viewed as jumper cables making this connection for you, while they remove blocks and restructure ruptures in your energy field.

grounded in the physical body power. All systems in the body and the energy field are healthier when they are grounded, nourished and balanced.

What can you expect from a session?
Typically, a practitioner will spend the first 15 minutes talking with you and learning about what you would like help with. If it is your first session, this amount of time may be longer. During the conversation, he or she is actively listening and observing the energy patterns of the moment while inviting the highest good into the session.
During the interview process, the practitioner will ask you questions about your health. While energy healing practitioners are not doctors and therefore do not diagnose illness or prescribe drugs, it is important that you share your health history with the practitioner. In doing so, the practitioner will know how to work with your energy system and which techniques to apply.
Once the discussion is complete, you will lie down on a massage table, fully clothed and, if necessary, supported by a bolster. You may also be covered by a blanket. Typically a
practitioner will first clear, charge and balance the energy field and chakras. The practitioner may work with your energy without having his or her hands on your body. Once the balancing is complete, the practitioner may use various techniques until the completion of the healing. These techniques include restructuring chakras, working with energetic relationship cords and many others.
During the session, your job is to receive and relax as much as possible. Each person’s experience during the session is unique and will differ. Some people find it helpful to pay attention to the breath. Others will fall asleep or enter into a half sleep or alpha state of relaxation. A wide range of emotions may arise. Often people find the healings to be very relaxing and experience a floating sensation.
Sessions may last up to 90 minutes. After the session is complete, the healer will spend a short amount time with you. While it is understandable that you might have questions after a healing, generally, it is advisable to keep the conversation to a minimum so that the healing can be fully held and integrated. Questions may be asked at a later time or at the
next session. It is not uncommon to have vivid dreams the evening of the healing or in subsequent days.
When looking for an energy healer make sure that they follow a guide of principles in practice. Ask if they belong to an association that supports their work and see if they are insured. And most of all make sure you are comfortable with that practitioner. This is your healing journey and it is essential that you feel aligned with those you work with.
