Energy healing isn't just for physical pain and ailments. It works wonderfully for those things as an adjunct therapy to conventional treatments. But when it comes to emotional pain and energy healing, there are even more possibile benefits.
Those who are in some kind of emotional pain are also ideal candidates to benefit from what various energy healing methods have to offer. Whether it is a deep seated trauma of longstanding, or a more recent emotional injury, energy healing is an ideal way to soothe it and allow the healing process to begin.
Here are some of the ways energy healing can help heal emotional pain.
Energy healing works with the body's energetic field
The energetic field is connected to every part of the body, and emotions are just as much a part of the body as actual physical parts. They can't be seen, but they can be felt, and are attached to you.
Emotional pain can block the correct flow of your body's energy channels. This can keep the pain in place for a long time, because it can't flow past the blockage and out of the body. It can also lead to physical ailments due to the emotional pain blocking the body's proper energy flow.
When a healer begins to work with you on emotional pain issues, he or she uses various methods to sense disturbances in your body's energy field. The healer often doesn't even need to know what your emotional issue is in order to help ease it.
Using things like aura cleansing, Reiki, acupuncture, smudging, aromatherapy, meditation, prayer, and/or laying on of hands, the healer can locate the blockages caused by your emotional pain.
Then, with the areas of blockage located, the healer can begin to clear them, and allow the free flow of energy again. This brings the body back into physical and emotional balance.
How many sessions do I need?
A deep seated trauma of longstanding may take many sessions to fully clear. If it is in there deeply, the energy healer has to work through layers of energy to get to the blockage.
Once the blockage is reached, it may be large and require several clearing sessions to completely remove it. If there is more than one area of deep blockage like this, it can take weeks, months, or longer to get to all of them and clear them.
The important thing is to continue to keep your appointments, because each one brings you that much closer to the healing you desire, or to a place where healing is possible.
A more recent emotional trauma may be cleared in one session, or just a handful of them, since it is more likely to be closer to the surface of your energy flow channels. It may even be sitting on top of them.
It is not unusual for clients who come to an energy healer for emotional pain issues to experience relief after one session. It all depends on how deep the trauma is, how long it's been there, and what caused it in the first place.
Again, the healer can work with you without knowing the cause of your trauma. You can keep that a secret if you wish to do so.
When the blockage is finally cleared, or even cleared enough to allow some of the natural flow of energy to resume, it is not unusual for a client to have an emotional breakthrough. Intense crying, sobbing, or other forms of emotional expression are normal, as those blocked emotions are finally released.
It doesn't happen to everyone, and healing can happen without this type of obvious release. Some people heal more gradually, and some do so all at once.
If you do have this expressive emotional response, realize it is perfectly normal, and a big part in getting you to the place where you can finally fully heal from your emotional pain.
Getting the permanent and lasting relief you desire all starts with your first appointment. The energy healers with Relief from Pain are waiting to guide you to the emotional healing you deserve.
Additional tips for combatting low mood and depression
There are some additional steps you can take on your own alongside medical treatment and alternative therapies, such as energy healing. Learn what else you can do to lay the foundation for a healthier state of mind.
1. Get Outside
It’s understandable that sometimes the last thing you want to do when you’re feeling low is go outside. However, doing so may be exactly what you need to combat your depression.
Exposing yourself to the elements can do wonders to stimulate the Vitamin D production, and fresh air has the pleasant tendency of reinvigorating your mind.
Make it a habit to get outside, even if it’s just a short walk around the block. If you have a dog, that’s a perfect reason to go out – animals need the great outdoors, too!
Depending on where you live, investigate a sport or hobby that’s still taking place outdoors.
Become Involved with a Good Cause
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” – Gandhi
Discover a cause in your community that you feel passionate about.
There are almost certainly people in your area who need help, such as homeless and the elderly. Homeless people are battling the elements, while those in retirement homes may be battling depression as well.
Volunteering your time with either group of people will help you overcome your depression by feeling fulfilled through helping others. Knowing that your life has purpose is one of the best antidotes for depression.
There are many more causes to explore depending on your area.
Look for any non-profit organizations or religious establishments that are doing meaningful work during the winter. Ask how you can get involved with them.
Even if you donate money, instead of donating time, you’ll still feel more connected to those in need. Feeling connected is another great antidote for depression.
2. Find A Productive Project
One common reason why people become depressed is the lack of feeling productive. Perhaps it’s time to go through the children's clothes and get rid of items that no longer fit. Perhaps you’d like to tackle the bookshelf and find new homes for books you’ve read – or you can alphabetize everything.
3. Explore New Hobbies or Interests
In contrast, too much free time can lend itself to feelings of depression and isolation. Counter this effect by putting your free time to use by exploring a forgotten interest or reinvigorating an old hobby.
Explore any options that lend themselves to community involvement or can be completed indoors. A hobby or interest with a social element will do wonders for overcoming depression.
Look online for Meet Ups or Facebook groups in your area. Get involved with them, make some new friends and feel productive.
Coping with depression isn’t impossible. The toughest part is actually taking the first step, but once you do, you’ll likely realize that you’re having more fun with life. A little effort is worth feeling fulfilled.
