Transforming Pain through Energy Medicine: Integrate and Receive by Dr Candess M Campbell, #1 Best-selling Author, Intuitive Mentor, Speaker, and International Psychic Medium Healer.
Where Does My Energy Go?
Do you notice you are tired in the morning when you first awake? Do you have a difficult time concentrating? Where does your energy go? I love the work of Caroline Myss—especially her image of the hundred circuits of energy we are given each day. In a course called Medical Intuition Training that she taught in April of 2004, she described these energy circuits as your power or your Spirit. She had us imagine one hundred circuits coming out from the top of our heads. She then asked us to follow the circuits to see where they were going. We imagined that 20% of the circuits were in the future, as people thought about what they were going to do later in the day; 40% in the past, connected to a childhood wound; and 30% in present time, leaving 10% unaccounted for. When your energy is not in present time, you don’t have the energy to fuel your body-mind. To be able to heal your body, you need to have a large percentage of your energy in the present. This explains partially why some people are able to heal themselves quickly and others are not. In previous articles in this series you have received several tools to bring your energy back.
In the field of integrative medicine, there are many helpful modalities and healing tools. I particularly like Reiki. The knowledge that an unseen energy flows through all living things and is connected directly to the quality of health has been part of the wisdom of many cultures since ancient times and discussed at length in this writing. We have seen how the existence of this life force energy has been verified by recent scientific experiments, and medical doctors are considering the role it plays in the functioning of the immune system and the healing process. Reiki is a form of laying on of hands healing. Its origins have been traced to Tibet. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words–Rei, which refers to God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power, and Ki, which is life force energy. So Reiki is actually life force energy. In China, this energy is called chi or qi; it is known as prana in India, mana in Hawaii, and orenda in Native American cultures. Another name for this energy is aura, which is the electrical force field that surrounds the physical body.
Reiki is used to apply life force energy to relieve pain, promote the healing process, revitalize, regenerate, and calm. It differs somewhat from touch healing in that the position of the hands over (or on) the body aligns more closely with the chakras.
Disease begins first on a non-physical level and then manifests on the physical level. Reiki will stimulate the aura and heal at that level. Lack of vitality is the cause of dis-ease in the non-physical, and Reiki stimulates the life force energy in the aura, giving the body more energy and vitality as well. Reiki eases trauma and shock, reduces stress and pain, and keeps tissue damage to a minimum. Your body holds the cellular memory of perfect health within. Reiki assists the body in remembering this perfect health. It is especially helpful for renewal when you find yourself too busy and working without rest. It is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that allows everyone to tap into an unlimited supply of life force energy to improve health and enhance the quality of life.
Healing Touch is another energy therapy you may be interested in receiving or learning. It helps to balance your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Like Reiki, Healing Touch works with your energy field to support your natural ability to heal. Founded in 1989 by Janet Mentgen, an RN, Healing Touch was used as a continuing education program for nurses. Today it is used widely in hospitals and other medical settings. You may find many of the massage therapists in your area are also Healing Touch practitioners.
After a car accident in 2006 in which I was rear-ended, I went to a massage therapist friend for treatment. She used Healing Touch on me, and I could immediately feel the energy shift and release. I was impressed. It took the kinks out of my muscles quickly, and I felt like myself again.
Many massage therapists will use different techniques to augment their practice, such as hot rock massage and massage with therapeutic oils, but massage alone is very beneficial. It can be a great preventative measure in addition to helping with pain relief. We addressed chi deficiency earlier, and massage can be helpful for this lack of energy. Also, the joints become less elastic as you age, and massage can help keep your muscles, joints, and ligaments more supple.
When I hurt my shoulder in London schlepping my bags around in and out of the Tube, a massage therapist was extremely helpful in releasing the pain and tension in the muscle, as well as teaching me how to employ a pillow while sleeping so the arm could be elevated a little and not strained as I slept. Massage is also very nurturing. If you live alone or don’t receive touch, massage is a blessing.
According to the online dictionary found at Dictionary.com, electro pollution is defined as:
Nonionizing electromagnetic radiation propagated through the atmosphere by broadcast towers, radar installations, and microwave appliances, and the magnetic fields surrounding electrical appliances and power lines, which is believed to have polluting effects on people and the environment; also called electromagnetic smog.
In Week Ten, we discussed your biofield. Although there is much controversy over what will or will not help protect us from electromagnetic pollution, much of what I have read concludes that there is indeed a problem. Earlier I shared the story of how wearing a pendant helped me to quickly recover my energy and health. My understanding is that the vibrations coming from cell phones, televisions, microwaves, and other items that are plugged into the electrical system are man-made waves, not natural to the environment and not natural to the environment of the human energy field or biofield. The BioPro (now Gia Wellness) pendant supports my body’s own self-healing ability by changing the vibration of the electropollution into a wave against which my body can defend itself. There are many studies that support this claim, and I encourage you to decide for yourself. You can learn more here, use your newfound skill of kinesiology, your intuition, or find a combination of the three that works for you. If you decide to use products to protect you from the electromagnetic pollution, there are even more sources that you can find on the Internet.
If you choose not to explore this option, but do believe that electromagnetic pollution is dangerous, here are some things you can do:
1. If you have an electric clock or radio next to your head when you sleep, either get a battery clock or move the clock as far from your sleeping space as you can.
2. Unplug anything that you are not using.
3. If you do not want to unplug items, it is helpful to get power strips so you can plug several items into one strip and turn them all off at once. This works well with computers and printers.
4. If you use a microwave, stand several feet away from the microwave when you are using it.
5. Use land phones when possible, and do not let children use your cell phone.
6. Use headphones rather than Bluetooth earpieces.
What you focus on increases. This is a large part of manifesting. Use the following simple steps to bring what you truly desire into your life:
1. Imagine the END result.
2. Clearly IDENTIFY what you want. Write it down.
3. ENVISION what it is that you are manifesting. Use all of your senses.
4. Be RECEPTIVE. Maintain your desires, but be unattached to the specifics of the outcome.
5. Practice an ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE! Be generous with others.
6. RELEASE any fears or doubts regarding your deserving this manifestation.
7. RECEIVE what comes your way. Be aware of what is coming and be careful not to block the gifts of the Universe.
You have been given a lot of information in this series on 12 Weeks to Self-Healing: Transforming Pain through Energy Medicine and if you have it, in the book. I hope that you are able to reread sections and practice the tools and exercises so that they become daily habits in your life. In summary, ultimately, you create your health by your choices. The external world, including your body, acts as a mirror reflecting your inner beliefs and expectations. Your doing, thinking, and feeling affect all aspects of your physiology, which results in good health or disease, as well as happiness or depression.
The simplest and most productive way to feel good naturally is to meditate in the morning and early evening. Morning is also a good time to stretch, play, move your body, and check in with your body. Experience the outdoors as often as possible, and become conscious of your surroundings. Eat healthy food that is not processed, and eat the largest meal in the middle of the day. Avoid alcohol and other drugs, including sugar. Drink eight glasses of un-chlorinated water daily.
Experience and express your feelings. Take time to understand what you are feeling and the origin of the feeling. See a counselor or a body worker to help you release your feelings. Relax before bed with a book, bath, or some light organizing. Be positive in your thoughts, and allow yourself to belong, to be loving and forgiving, and to experience yourself in a process of health and healing. Take responsibility for your own health. And, I would like to add, be grateful!
Tools and Exercises
1. Ground yourself, close your eyes, and breathe deeply. Take a moment to imagine you have 100 circuits of energy emanating from the top of your head. See where your energy is going. You can do this by seeing what memories and feelings surface. Do a timed writing for twenty minutes to get more information.
2. Assess your home for electropollution. Research on the Internet what is said to be harmful, and take some precautions by investing in protective products or using the ideas I gave you in this week.
3. Make an appointment for Reiki, Healing Touch, massage, or another nurturing experience. If you do this kind of work as well, do not trade sessions. Allow yourself to receive.
4. Go to your local independent bookstore and spend some time looking through the books. Allow your intuition to take you to the book that will be activating for you.
The whole process of self-healing involves becoming conscious and activating your own life force energy and directing it consciously. Have fun with this. Use the tools that you find to be the most helpful and share them with friends. If you need more support, this audio program will assist you through the process. LINK
There are a couple of points I have not yet made, but I find them to be very important. The first is to be sure to forgive yourself for anything you may be holding without letting go. Forgive others as well, because as we hold resentments of the past, the resentments hold us much tighter. The second is a word I have learned to love as I embrace it. The word is surrender. The more I have learned to surrender my will to God, the Universe, the Divine … the simpler my life has become.
When you understand that you are not alone, that there is a part of you that is much wiser and much more capable, it becomes easier to let go and trust that your own Higher Self, your Inner Guide, the Holy Spirit will create for you in a manner beyond what you could imagine yourself.
