Jane reveals the simple but powerful force that runs through us all
I’m convinced the key to optimum wellbeing lies in understanding that body, mind, emotions and soul are intertwined. We can’t separate them out; we just can’t be boxed into neat compartments. It’s the reason I champion functional medicine, which looks at people as a whole rather than as a series of body parts, and champions targeted nutrition and more holistic cures. However, ultimately we need to go further still – we need to look at subtle energy.
Quantum physics now shows what ancient civilizations have known for thousands of years – we are all energy beings. I believe the time has come for all of us to use the principles of energy healing, and I hope my new book, The Energy Secret (Kyle Books) will act as a primer, introducing simple techniques to help heal your body, your relationships, your home and wider environment.
Start right now. Stop, take off your shoes and stand with your feet shoulderwidth apart (if you can do this outside on the earth, so much the better). Imagine you have a string attached to the very top of your head and it’s being gently tugged. Relax your shoulders, soften your knees and breathe into your core (around your navel). Close your eyes. Focus. What do you feel? Many people will notice a tingling – your body’s energy responding to your attention. It can be that simple.
Vital energy is always there – we just tend to ignore it. Learning how to use and direct it gives us all the potential to be healers, and I truly believe this will become the ultimate form of preventative medicine, allowing us to ease the psychospiritual traumas which often underpin chronic disease.
Simple energy techniques can also turn your home into a true sanctuary, a place in which you can feel totally safe and secure (so vital for our wellbeing). Energy underpins relationships too and there are easy ways to sense and smooth the patterns which exists between our partners, our children, our friends and colleagues. If all of us learned ‘energy wrangling’, the world would undoubtedly be a safer, happier, more relaxed place.
I also hope that this awareness would bring about more respect for our environment. More of us would recognise that this beautiful planet is our home, our only home – and we would treat it with love and respect.
Ultimately, cultivating energy leads to spiritual renewal. Some people have a vibrant living faith, yet many feel alienated from traditional religions. Once you work at an energetic level, the outward trappings of religion become unimportant. There is no need for names or titles: instead there is a sincere sense of belonging, of love, peace and connection.
So do check out The Energy Secret. I’ll also be sharing tips and techniques on my social media in the hope you’ll join me.
