Occasionally when people receive an energy attunement or energy healing, whether it is chakra balancing, Reiki or whatever form, they experience a healing crisis after and actually feel worse before they feel better. This can sometimes have a negative effect as people focus on the crisis and not on how they felt after they had gone through it and the new energies were freely flowing.

A healing Crisis is a difficult concept to grasp but it is very similar to when you are undergoing a body cleansing or detox regimen and detoxification symptoms occur along the way. These unpleasant side effects are merely a necessary part of the healing process that we need to go through so that we can experience the true benefits of energy healing.

The experience of a healing crisis can be uncomfortable. If you ever experience it or think you are experiencing it, you should always talk to the person who gave you the energy healing or energy attunement . They will be able to support and advice you and help you through.

In a healing crisis the chakras and physical body eliminate the accumulated toxins and negativity that have been stored and are causing a blockage to your well being. It is natural that this will cause a reaction, it can be a very mild reaction that goes unnoticed or the symptoms can be a little more strong. The good news is, once eliminated and released, the body's own self healing abilities will restore you and help you feel so much better at every level!

Possible symptoms of a healing crisis:

joint or muscle pain
aching in the body
cold or flu like symptoms
mild skin eruptions (acne, pimples, rashes)
insomnia or changes in sleep patterns
fatigue and general tiredness
concentration problems
mood swings
emotional-rollercoaster-type behavior

If you experience any of these after healing or an attunement it is important to remind yourself that they are temporary and will pass in a couple of hours or days. Make sure that you look after yourself, drink plenty of water to help your body flush away toxins, get some sunshine and fresh air and rest as much as possible.

A healing crisis is not normally something that will prevent you going about your daily life and most people only feel the symptoms at a mild level, if at all. The purpose of this article is not to frighten people away from energy healing or attunement but to explain what can happen when built up negativity and blocked energy points are released. It is normal and many people don't even notice it, but if you do have notable symptoms do not worry, focus on the positive energy that is flowing through you and helping you to achieve a better state of overall well being.
