This article will be of great benefit to you, even if you haven’t had any prior experience in healing with energy. Of course, if you are already an experienced healer, the benefits will be even greater.

• Deep relaxation providing healing on all levels, leaving an enduring sense of calm and refreshment;
• Release of old emotional baggage;
• More energy;
• Being able to deal more effectively and objectively with mental, emotional and physical issues; &
• Significant relief of both chronic and acute pain

Have the intention to connect with the universal energy via your crown chakra. Focus and draw in this energy down through the body and hands. You may perceive this as white light or some other colour or as a tingling or warm sensation. However even if you do not obviously feel your connection to the universal energy, holding the pure intention to connect to it will ensure you do.

The energy will flow to wherever it is needed for healing, so just allow yourself to be guided as to where to place your hands on, or even off, your body. Two good all purpose hand positions are on the heart (grief, emotional hurt and relationship issues) and on the solar plexus (fear, emotional congestion, digestive disturbances). Ideally energy self-treatments should be done in a quiet, relaxing space where you will not be disturbed. Always have the intention the healing will be for your highest good, as it is not up to you to guess what the highest good is. Higher forces decide this.

You may also like to include relaxation music, guided visualization, crystals, aromatherapy oils or essences to accentuate the experience of healing. Allow yourself to be creative and find out what works best for you.

Sensations you may experience during an energy self-treatment include feelings of warmth in those areas drawing the most energy, tingling waves through the body as blocks are released and tummy gurgles as stress is released from the mid-section. Many people also report seeing brilliant colours lit with an inner radiance, most notably violet, green, pink, blue and yellow, while others may have old painful memories released from deep in the subconscious mind as those memories are being resolved. Other people don’t consciously experience anything, but are just peacefully relaxed. Each self-treatment is different. Enter into it without expectation and just enjoy the journey. It is natural as you are starting out with energy healing to have issues around trust and confidence that you are actually doing something, but just do it anyway!

Under no circumstances allow yourself to be swayed by people saying they have learnt Reiki, Sekhem, Seichim, etc, etc (so have I!) and therefore they view their energy channeling abilities as somehow superior to yours. Unfortunately there is a lot of ego in so-called spiritual circles. Everyone is capable of making their own personal connection to universal energy without initiations or symbols. After all it was a natural skill for all of us as children. We just need to remember.

The more you practice self-healing, in any form, the quicker you will peel away the old heavy emotional and mental baggage, allowing your vibration to raise to greater joy in your life. Even if energy self-treatments seem difficult for you at first, persist until they become an easy, regular and most of all, enjoyable part of your life. The more regular your practice, the more your channels open and the greater the amount of energy you can access becomes.


Classic unresolved traumatic events for many people include a relationship breakup, the first day at school, being humiliated in front of the class, being a premature baby in the hospital nursery, toxic emotions absorbed in utero or the death of a loved one. These can have far-reaching effects into adulthood as the old fears are replayed over and over in repeating patterns, such as low self-esteem, abandonment issues, procrastination, lack of confidence and grief.

Sending healing to distant events in your past can be a powerful way to break annoying or destructive patterns in your life, even if you do not know the original source of the problem. If your belief system accommodates this, the source may even be in a previous incarnation.

Exercise: Decide on the issue or pattern you want to address and feel where in your body you are carrying most of the physical or emotional discomfort around this issue. If comfortable, place your hands on the affected area and place your full focus there, breathing into the area. If you aren’t sure where the body is holding the discomfort, try placing one hand on the heart and the other on the solar plexus and focusing your attention and breathing there.

Say to yourself something along the lines of, “It is my stated intention to send healing to the very first time, place and circumstances that this problem (name the issue or pattern) I am experiencing first arose” Hold the hand positions, focus and channel energy via your crown chakra through your hands for as long as you desire, but for a minimum of 10 minutes. This can be extremely powerful clearing and you may find tears of release flowing spontaneously or loud sighs as the emotional/mental blocks release. By clearing the issue at its source, all following incidences of a similar nature are also automatically resolved.
