Energy - The River Of Life
Articles By Dr. Rita Louise
We are each filled with universal life force energy. It is the essence of our being, our consciousness, our soul. As the flow of life force energy moves through the physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies, it can become imbalanced, stagnant, or blocked. We experience what is called dis-ease. Disease, as the term suggests, is lack of ease. It is the inability of one's life force energy to flow freely.
Disease is the reaction to imbalanced life force energy in the physical, emotional, or spiritual body. This imbalanced energy can manifest as physical problems, as well as life patterns and cycles that keep us from growing. Disease can manifest in the physical body in the form of headaches, back pain, arthritis, or cancer. It can manifest in the emotional body in the form of anger, rage, phobias, depression, and hate. It can also manifest in the spiritual body, appearing as narrow-mindedness, disrespect for life and nature, or materialism.
Lets look at the concept of disease from another perspective. Visualize your life force energy as a fast moving stream. It will flow in the path of least resistance. If a large stone is placed in the center of the stream, the water must yield and deviate to go around the stone blocking its path. The flow of the stream has deviated from its natural path and become imbalanced.
If, the very first time you felt invalidated, a large stone was placed in the stream, the effect to the flow of energy may not be very great. However, if you are invalidated again, the blockage can get bigger as yet another stone is added to the stream. Your life force energy must yield and deviate even more to get around the even larger blockage. These blockages can grow instance by instance, cycle by cycle, stone after stone, lifetime after lifetime, until the body starts to manifest these issues as dis-ease.
Fear is the largest cause for our life force energy to become imbalanced, stagnant, or blocked. When we are afraid to let go of energies such as abuse, physical, mental, or emotional trauma, invalidation, or the denial of self, our life force energy becomes imbalanced. If left for a long time, it can become stagnant or completely blocked.
For some, these imbalances have been present since early childhood or a past life. Changing these imbalances would mean changing the very basis of the world around them, their perceived self. For others, there is a level of denial in which they know there is something wrong, but it does not belong to them. There are yet others that can see these imbalances in their physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies, yet they are unsure how, or are having difficulty in releasing the stagnant energy which will allow them to bring in the life changes desired.
Each of us has the ability to heal ourselves of disease. The easiest to say, but the most difficult to do, is just to let go. Allow the body, mind, and spirit to release all of the energy that it is holding on to. It can then return to its natural place of balance and harmony. This, however, is not easy for us to do.
There are many techniques one can use to release energy that is not in harmony with our highest good. Amusement is the easiest way to get stagnant energy flowing again. Look at what is going on around you and find some amusement in it. Enjoy the release you will experience with a good laugh. If that doesn't work, techniques including meditation, any kind of physical exertion, creative expression such as art, and tasks as simple as washing dishes or raking leaves are excellent tools one can employ to release energy.
In addition, there are many techniques in which one can be assisted in releasing stagnant energy. These include Reiki, aura/chakra clearing, and psychic surgery. Each of these techniques affect the physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies; however, one technique may work better on one specific body than another.
Massage, in its many forms, is the physical manipulation of the muscles within the physical body. Today, many people are familiar with the relief experienced during and after a massage. Massage is an excellent tool for breaking up blockages that accumulate in the muscles, tendons, and joints. These blockages are commonly referred to as "knots". As the healer works to break up the energy accumulated within a knot, the stagnant energy can dissipate, and one's life force energy can start to flow again.
Another way of removing blocks is thought the use of Reiki. Reiki is a form of hands-on-healing. "Reiki" means "universal life force energy." During a Reiki treatment, healing energy brought in from the universe is run thought the healer's hands and is transmitted to the person to be healed. The healer begins at the top of the head, moving their hands in a number of positions over the receiver's head. Each position is maintained for three to five minutes, or until the healer feels that the area which he/she is working on is cleared. The healer then continues working on the rest of the body in the same manner, clearing stagnant energy. Reiki is an excellent tool to use, especially when dealing with physical problems, in that it heals down to the cellular level.
An aura/chakra clearing is another way of getting one's life force energy flowing. An aura/chakra clearing is a form of clairvoyant healing. The chakras, or energy centers within the body, are a common place where one's life force energy can become imbalanced. Chakras are like the apertures of a camera in that they open and close. In physiological terms, chakras are located where groups of nerves meet to form nerve centers. They are also related to the endocrine gland system, which includes the adrenal glands, thyroid, and the pituitary.
The aura is the electromagnetic field around the body. It is the "personal space" or "personal bubble" that each of us have around our bodies. There are seven major chakras within the body, as well as seven layers to the aura. Each vibrates at a different frequency and color, and process different types of information such as survival, sexuality, willpower, love, communication, visualizations, and knowingness.
In a healthy body, each layer of the aura is brightly colored, vibrant, full of energy, and flowing. When one's energy becomes imbalanced, stagnant, or blocked, the aura can have the appearance of being discolored, ripped, torn, or dented. The chakras in a healthy body should also appear clear, vibrant, and full of energy. They should be round in appearance and rotating in a clockwise direction. When afflicted, the chakras can appear cracked, deformed, or out of alignment with each other. If there is an imbalance in one of the layers of the aura or one of the chakras, it can have a direct effect of the information processed.
During a session, the healer will look directly at the aura and chakras. He/she will utilize visualizations such as feather dusters, squeegees, or brooms to clear out blockages found in the different layers of the aura. The healer may also sew rips and tears in the aura and get the aura flowing again. In addition, deformed chakras should be reshaped and cracks filled. Chakras that are not moving should be set into motion.
While clearing the aura and chakras, the healer may also describe the types of energy they are looking at. This energy may appear as a color, a feeling, or a picture. By communicating this information, the person to be healed now has a conscious understanding of what energy they are holding on to. This new information can allow the person to release the stagnant energy and give them permission to make positive changes in their life.
Psychic surgery, as the name suggests, is another form of clairvoyant healing. During this type of healing session, the healer may look at things such as muscular and skeletal health, the organs and glands, and the level of toxins in the body, as well as other specific health issues. The healer can also look at emotional issues, life patterns, and physical injuries sustained in past lives.
There are many things a psychic surgeon can address during a healing session. These include (but are not limited to) clearing energy from the aura and chakras, organs, and glands. A skilled psychic surgeon can also assist in the healing after surgery or an accident; assist in reducing pain such as that experienced with a headache; and assist in deprogramming reoccurring emotional issues such as abuse, fear, and control. This can also include physical, mental, or emotional traumas that were experienced in a past life which are recreating issues (karma) in the present.
As with all healing techniques including massage, Reiki, aura/chakra clearings, or psychic surgery, the healer can only assist in restoring balance to our life force energy. We must be willing to release stagnant energy in order to experience its affects on physical, emotional, or spiritual levels. It is this release of energy that allows the healing process to begin.
