This is really on my mind right now because I’m helping a young woman that I sense has a brain aneurysm. She has been having migraine headaches, which are increasing in frequency. She has been to doctors and had multiple tests and they were unable to find the cause.
If you have had a migraine, you know how absolutely incapacitating they can be. As I mention in an earlier article, when I look into the energy body of a person with a migraine I usually see way too much light pouring into the person’s crown chakra. https://misahopkins.com/shsdev/1234/migraines%E2%80%94energetic-causes-and-and-energy-healing/
This was true with this young woman. I finished meditating with her in preparation for creating her sound medicine CD and found she had too much light flowing through her body and her mind was intensely active. These are not conditions that promote energetic healing from migraines, in my experience, regardless of their source.
I know we live in an age that has come to appreciate the value of “sending light” or “sending healing” (which is usually light-based) to people when they are suffering. For those of us that are healers or compassionate people, it is our greatest desire to see them relieved of their pain. This intention is wonderful.
Yet, if we are not careful, we might actually increase their pain. That’s right. Increase it. I cannot emphasize how important it is to ask the spirit’s permission before sending energy to anyone. They may not need or want the energy at all. And in the case of someone suffering from a migraine, more energy may not be the answer.
In my experience, less energy often helps a migraine sufferer find relief from the pain. So before sending energy, and after you have received permission, I recommend asking for what they need from you. Then give only what they ask for. If you don’t know (can’t sense) what they need, your love for them is plenty. Their own energy bodies will know what to do with your love.
I spent an hour just holding this woman in the darkness and coolness of the primordial womb, so that her mind could quiet down and her energy could slow down—both absolutely necessary for her to be able to receive healing for the aneurysm. Light can speed up the body’s metabolism. At times, that is exactly necessary for healing. At other times it can be exactly what a person does not need.
I’ve used sound and light for over two decades to support people in their healing. During the past 10 years, I have been discovering the incredible healing power of stillness and darkness. The yin nature of ourselves sometimes needs a little help and nurturing, and I am delighted to see the healing responses that can arise from the medicine inherent in this feminine-based energy.
At one point, I guided a woman through a quiet meditation into a dark, still pool of water and within about an hour her migraine subsided. I discovered it worked so well for people that I finally recorded it. For people that run a lot of energy through their crown chakras and have a difficult time quieting down and resting, this meditation has been quite helpful. You can find this CD at my Sound Healing site. It’s the Headache Relief CD: http://www.spirittreasures.com/products.html
If you are curious about how yin energy can be used in healing, I talk about it in greater depth in the article mentioned above.It is equal to light or masculine-based energy in its ability to positively affect healing, when darkness and quiet is required.
